Tho sttuatlou at Manila appears to be even
craver than at Hollo, for in the ovont of a clash
between Oon. Miller's troops and the Filipino
nt tho latter placo there lslikoly toba trouble,
with Aguinaldo's nnny in tho vicinity of the
capital of Luzon. Against Gen. Otls's force at
Manila, reduced to about 20.000 men by the
necessity of sending the detachment to Hollo,
there would bo a Filipino army ot about 30.000.
under tho immediate command ot Aculnaldo.
Whilo confident that the outcome, would bo to
the advnntace of tho United Btates. the Govern
ment will co to extremos to avoid a hostile col
lis.on. principally on account ot tho dancers
and cmbarrassmont to tho continuance of
American authority overapooplo who would
feel that thoy had been conquered.
In anticipation of Just such an emereenoy,
the Wnr Department to-day took measures to
reinforce IGen. Otis as quickly as possible. To
that end tho six reciments of regular Infantry
recently directed to prepare for service in tho
.Philippines wore ordered to get ready to move
on Immediate notice, and tho Quartermaster
Gineral's Department was Instructed to make
every effort to secure transports to carry the
troops. The Quartermaster-General responded
promptly to the eracreoncv, and was ablo
to report to tho Secretary of War that he
could promise that the last of the reinforce
ments would sail from tho United States
for Manila within two weoks. .A despatch was
f r' sent to den. Otis containing till"; good news. It
iaid thatthe Twentieth Infantry would leavo

which were to come homo for muster out, but
if the present situation continues after tho
reculars arrive, or hostilities occur, they will

yesterday from Huntsvlllo. Ala.
The despatch from Gen. Otis, which was the
basis for tlioso hurry orders nnd the causo of

Otis. Gen. Miller had, since his arrival ut

' uccresslvo attitude of Gun. Miller was in ac-
I cordanee with Instructions to treat tho Insur
cents with consideration It ho woro broucrlit

Gen. Miller reached Hollo lin found, ncrordlnc
to Gon. Otis'-) message, that the Insurceiits oc

had evidently been madii to bellevo by
tho Spaniards whose nlaeos they had
taken that the, Americans would treat

of Gen. Sillier lor tho surrender of tho town

f contemplated harsh measures. Gen. Otis
said that he hud sent a special emissary
to Illolo to say to tho Filipino, in the
' name at the United HtatMg, that tho Washington
Government was friendly to them and desired
to show Its friendship; that the United Htntos
had only tho good ot the Filipinos ot heart, and
that the deslri.tu occupy the forts did not arlso
i from any fooling of hostility to tho Filipino
I people or army. This action of Gon. Otis was
in accordance with instructions from the War
Department to treat tho Filipino leadeis at
Hullo in a conciliatory manner and to avoid n
conflict If possible, but to insist firmly on tho
evacuation by the insurgents of the Hollo forts.

A Woman In n Newnrk Store Snys She Sold
a Toothpick Holder I.Ike That Sent to
Cornish lo Smb. l .Man Two Days ISefore
Clirlillnni Detectives Looking for Him,
It came out yesterday that the silver toolh
plek holder which wis sent to Harry Cornish
with a bottle ot poison on Dec. 'M had been
purchased oil Dec. 1 by a man described ns
being of modluifi height and linvinc red whis
kers. Ho bought It at tho jewelry storo of
Hartdecen V Co., 08:1 Broad street, Newark,
Capt. McClusky's men are now looking for this
man, and while thoy havo a very Incomplete
description ot him, tho saleswoman who
sold tho toothpick holder Is sure Hint she
would iccognlze him If sho saw him acnln.
Cnpt. McClusky says that ho does not know
who the man with tho rod whiskers Is. A man
ot that description was not among the list of
suspects pt lor to tho receipt of tho Informa
tion that tho holder sent to Cornish 'was the
one sold by Hartdecen & Co. '
A sensational nowspaporof this city professos
to know who tho mun with the red whiskers Is.
It declares that n is a former member ot the
Knickerbocker Athletic Club, who was forced
to leslgn by Cornish. Capt. McClusky says on
this point:
"Tho amateur detectives ot certain news
papersnre not my detectives. Thelrsuspeets
aro not my suspects. If they know who the
reil wlllaknl,! mon lq f lintf I'iiaw mnrn tlmli T
lo. If I know who ho was I'd arrest him."
Last Thutfdny Mr. Hartdegcn said to a Sun
ieKrter that In November. ISfltJ. ho had had a
holder similar to the one sent to Cornish, but
that, to tho best of his lccollection. it was; sold
in Decomber of tho samu year. Yesterday he
said that ho must have been mistaken, as hu
wasnowconvluced that the holder had been
sold on Friday, Dec. -.'I, two dnys before Christ,
"I was too III to go to my storo forthrcoor
four days beforo Uhrlstmns," he said. "My
wife went Instead, to sort of look uftor things,
for, of course.lt wns our busy time. Frld.iy
evening, tho'J.id. she was sitting at tho cash
drawer, when Miss Lmma Miller, our book
keeper, who had been nssisting the salesmen,
came to her and said that she had just sold a
sliver match holder to a man. She spoke ot it
becausi) the man was very nervous and said ho
wanted thu urticle wrapped up at once and
didn't want to wait a minute.
bV'Now. usually 'customers want their silver
purchases polished up a bit before thoy tale
them away. Silver in stock gots tarnished.
Miss Miller wanted tho iitnii to wait until she
could havo tho holder polished. Ho said to her.
Just wrap It up as it is. I want to get away as
quickly as possible.'
"Miss Miller did as requested, andtnsmnn
turned on his heel and went out. The young
woman recalled him as a man of medium
height with n red beard. She is sure she would
know him If she saw him again. That is nil we
know about the matter, excepting thnt we bad
n small tag parted on tho bottom of the holder,
and there is. 1 understand, n mucilage stain on
tho bottom of tho one sent to Cornish, Miss
Miller has seen the holder sent to Cornish, and
declares It is the one she sold two nights be
fore Christmas "
Iipii Miss Miller wns seen, she said slio had
been Instructed by tho police to sjy nothing
and that she meant to oboy her Instructions.
Sho admitted that the account given by .Mr.
Hurldegen Is correct, nnd added that while the
man was very nervous ho didn't show any
great haste until after he had decided to buy
the toothpick holder. Ho examined several
aitlcles, und whon he first took up the holder
placed his lliiKcr over the top of theaportuie ns
though measuring it. Miss Miller thinks the
man was about '-'." years old.
Capt. McClusky put lu an appearance at Po
lice Headquarters only onco ycslorday. He
said thon to a Sun retiorter:
"I shall not come back here again to-day un
less something happens. So far we have not
discovered thu por-on who sent tho poison to
Cornish. Wo havo a favorable clue In tho
story of Miss Miner, and are doing our best
to locato the man who bought n holder
from her. It looks, of course, ns though
ho was our man, but wo have no Idea who hu
Is or where wo can catch him Miss Miller will
be of grat aid to us if we do eatch tho man.
for she Issutosho cjii identify him. I do not
believe thoro will be any unests to-day or to
night. I am working on the ease myself day
nnd night, nnd ns soon ns nn arrest Is raado I
will mnku tho fact public."
It wns learned yesterday that on Sunday
nleht Capt. McClusky went to Cornish's home,
ntOl West Eighty-sixth stroct. and took him
out. Cornish returned alone at a late hour.
This is the second time Cornish nnd the Cap
tain have made a mysterious night trip to
gether. A nowspaper printed a story yesterday to the
effect that the police were looking for Roland
Burnhnm Molineux, son of (Jen L L. Moll
neux. lr said that Mr. Molineux had left tho
Knickerbocker Athletic Club after a row with
Cornish and hnd joined Hie New oik Ath
letic Club. It was significantly stnted
that Molineux was a chemist and was
In business in Newark. Tho story was
brought to the attention of Gen. Molineux at
his home. 117 Fort Greene place, Brooklyn,
early yestorduy mornlne. Ho hurried over to
his son's home at 257 Wast l.nd avenue, this
borough, and the two t lien went to Capt. McClus
ky's house, McClusky laughed nt the idea that
the young man was under suspicion. He told
(len. Mollnuux totiike Ills sou away, as he didn't
own want to ask him any questions. Gen.
Molineux went away and put the matter in
the hands of his lawcrs, Hugo Hlrsch und
Bartow S, Weeks. It is understood that pro
ceedings will he Instituted against the news
paper that printed the story. Later In tho day,
when seen by a reporter, Gou. Mollnuux said :
"Tho story connecting my son with tho
poisoning of Mrs, Adams and Mr, Cornish Is n
dialmlicu lie from beginning to end. There
is no truth In any of tho accusations, whether
direct or Implied. It has nearly killed his
mother and has prostinted his young
wife. It has lieeti u great blow to me.
The persons who stalled It in inullee mid
those whu criminally published it will have to
pay dearly for It. Ju duo tlmo we will demand
an investigation and nothing will be left un
done to bring the guilty persons to punish
ment As for mi sell I would llko to take per
sonal uciomit of It and buy a lawhldo. but that
I suppoo 1 cannot do.
"I was uwakuiiod atlio'elock this mornlne
by a friend, who called and showed me the
Pi Intad outrage. My wlfo was torrlbly shockod.
and, as I have said, It has almost killed her, I
cot Into my clothes hurriedly und wunt over tt
my son's icsidenue In New York, at 257 West
Bud avenue. My son und his wife had been
Willi us until 10 o'clock last night. I
found him in Ills bed and told him to
lead the story and tell mo what ho had to say.
He said exaotly what I knew that ho would
sjy, thnt tho whole btory was an outrageous
lie. You can Imnglnu what tho effect wns upon
IiIh wife. They woio only married onNov.21).
I tohi him to got up uuil dress mid we would
go s t once lo the police, lloln ml did so.
"Howint llrst to Capt. McClusky s home,
nnd found him in his Wed. 1 handed him the
newspaper and told him who wo w.'re.nud said
thnt ii my son was wanted 1 hail eonm to sur
render him. Tho Captain read tho paper and
snlil: 'That's newspaper stuff.' and addod
t lint tho story wus absurd anil that be hud nnvtir
had my son untlorHU.splclon for ono moment. 1
told him my sun's address and my own und I
said that any tlmo they wanted us they could
have us.
" Now, wo all hate a poisoner, and wo ure nil
niiNlmiH tn eatch this one. I said to my sou
to-day that the uoublo of tno matter was that
hu was a chemist. Ium. too, and in ray paint
works have all sorts of poisons, cyanide of po.
tussluiii undevery othei soil of eynnlile. My
son has poisons lu his place, too. He told Capt.
McClusky this, und that ho onuld send over to
Ills place and get samples of over) tiling if ha
wanted them. I asked my son about tho silver
holder. He said that ho had never purchased
or hnd anything of that sort In his iiossesalon
In Ids life that ho knew of."
Bartow K. weeks hnd a long conference with
young Molineux yesterday. At its conclusion
he said to a reportor:
"Tim trouble between Mr. Molineux and
Cornish, which resulted in the former leaving
tiie Knickerbocker Athletic Club, came about
In this way: Cornish wrote to me, ns
nn olllcor of the New York Athletic Club,
thnt wo had taken an unfair udvautaco of
Ills chili when we had B. J. Wefers run
for us. lie said In this letter that ho would get
square with me. Mr, Mollnuux objected totho
sending of such a letter by an employee to u
friendly club, and thought that Mr. Cornish
should bo disciplined. Whon tho rust of tho
committee lofusod to do this, Mr. Molineux
thought that ho could no longer remain In tho
club while that employee wns In it, and so ro
slgiiud. TmU Is ull thorn is to tho matter "
Roland Mollnuux Is about III years old, nnd
qmto prominent us uu athlete lie shaves Ills'

Havana, Jan. 2. Since the occupation of tho
city by tho Americans yesterday Ihero havo been
no political disorders of any kind. To-day aCu
ban was wounded by a shot fired by some un
known person, but tho shooting Is believed to
Jiavc been the oulconio ot a personal quarrel, A
Chinaman stubbed bis mlstiess In Lacunas
street as Gen. Brooko was passing In n car
riage. Gen. Brooke ordorod two Auioiican
soldiers to capture Iho assassin, but the China
man killod himself with his knife.

saldthntit was remarkable, Col. Moiilton, com

political change had no parallel In history.

taken possession of tho office of Secretary of
Justice. Seriores Llltorns und Vldnl, Cuban

No Nnral Ottkrr Invited to the Cri-einoiilra
Attending tlie tsurrendrr of C'libn.
Wasiiixcitov, Jan, 2.-Thcre Is considerable
feeling In naval circles ovor the fact 1 hat no
navul otllcer was invited to bo present at the
ceremonies at the Goveruur-Geueral's palace
in Havana on Sunday, when the island otCuba
was formally surrendered tothe United States
by Caplaln-Genoial Castellanoo. No infer
ence was made to tho omission in ofilelal de
spatches to the Navy Department, but some
naval olllcers believe that It Is a matter requir
ing ofilelal notice in the form ot a protest tn
the Piesident or the War Depaitmeut. Tho
subject was a topic of discussion among tho
oflleers who assembled at the NiTy Depart
ment to-day preparatory to attending the
White House reception, Although some ot
the very conservative naval men aro Inclined
to think that failure to invite a naval otllcer to
reprtsent his service at the ceiemonlcs wus
due to an oversight, u majority of them aro
convinced that a slight was intended. It is
said by nnval oflleers that It Is now too lata to
lemedy the matter, nnd the feeling ugnlnst
the general oflleers who had eliuigo of the
ceiemonies has been Intensified thereby.
'J he argument ot tho navy people is that as
Admiral Sampson was a meinbsr of the Evac
uation Commission It was unfair and dis
courteous in the niilltnry authorities at Ha
vana not to have Invited somebody to lopre
heut him at the ceremonies. Admiral Samp
sun, it wis said in naval circles, wns obliged to
leave Havana more on account of bis health
than a desire to attend his daughter's wedding
nnd it is contended that courtesy to him per
sonally. If no other reason, lequired that a
proxy for the Admiral should havo bcon in at
tendance at the invitation of (hoso having
oharce ot thu csreinonies. Attention was
called alsotothe fact that the F.vucuation Coin
mission was u joint body, comprising repre
sentatives of botli the army and navy.

would not encroach On the field ot my distin
guished friend who is to respond to the tcntl
mciit lu his honor, but I cannot forbear un ex
pression of satisfaction that tho verdict of his
eountryineti.no less than the approving judg

among tho great meu who have llllcdMi.it high

stoiy of the devotion with which hu has given
his davs and nights to tho service of his coun
try. With war clouds gathering and threaten
ing when he took the oath of his gieat olllce
he bent all of his energies to the amelioration
of tho condition of tho people of thu Gem ot tho
Antilles, seeking not to uvold responsibility,
hoping to accomplish his ends by peaceful
measures, and tesolvetl that onlr as a last re
sort should his country agulu 'ope thu purplo
testament of bleeding war;' when war became
Inevitable, bcudlng every energy to its vigor

which led up to und through the negotiations
which culminated iu tho treaty signed Iu Pails

made It possible to keep the Piesident eon

the signing of the treatv of Ghent did not icach
Washington until utter the bloody battle of
New Orleans had been fought on the 8th of
January, two weeks after the signing of the
treaty which should have ended tho strife. The

nn occasion of this kind. I think 1 may never
theless say something to mv brethren of the
bar of tho cvonts which have oeeuned iu the
period of our separation. If I rrnoi ailed up
on to state the most gratifying clicumstauee
of our foreign relations during tho war. it
would be found iu the uniformly eoidinl und

point. I think I inav say something to you
about It. if in excess of tho proprieties of the
oecislon, 1 shnll uskjoii to tieat it iu profes
sional confidence. On the l'-'th of August
i he protocol ot Washington wns executed.
It may be said to have been Iho preliminary
contract who-n final execution was to bo
embodied iu the treaty. As to Cuba, Porlo
ltieo. minor A'o-t Indian islands and an isl
and in the Ladrones, it was capable of execu
tion by u simiile deed of cession of those isl
ands, except Cuba, whero llual lellnquish
ment of Spanish sovereignty was lequired.
As to tho Philippine Islands, their disposition,
government and control was left for llual de
termination in thu tieaty. f have often been
asked how it was possible to make progress
In a commission having equal representation
from the two nations. While this fact did not
prevent fullest discussion, the United Stntes
having made all the concessions which it be
lieved just and fair was obliged to Insist that
its terms be accepted. The publication of the
uioenedings will show that nothing can be
further from the truth than torassume that the
i lilted ritates miopteii tnwaiu hpain a policy

nilsalouors heard with respect aud endeav
ored to answer with tlrmiics every proposi
tion advanced by the Spanish Commission.
For better, for worse, the work of the Com
mis"ioners Is done and needs but the ratllleaiiou
ot the Piesldsnt, bv and with the content of
tho Semite, to becomothe supreme law of the
laud. It cannot bo a matter of i egret to nny
American that the rising sun ot the new Year
beholds the ensign of our glorious republic
flouting from the ivalls of Mono, where for so
many years the royal banner ot Spain hus
looked down upon so much of corruption, mis
ery und shame. To-night not one; foot ot
American soli remains under Spanish' do
minion, nnd the people so long oppressed uro
to have u new blith of freedom.
"This Is not the lime nor place to discuss our
policy in the Fur Fast, If this treaty should
bo ratified It brings to the United Stales titlu
to tho archipelago, tn be dealt with us thu
American people hi their wlsanin may see 111.
Of one thing 1 think we aro allnureed; that
ivhen the line of our duty thoro has been lie
toi mined It must be dlsebniged as becomes u
great, free and liberty-loving nation. Y hctliur
or not we have so willed, the davs of our inter
national Isolation are pjt. It does not follow
that the advice of the Immortal Washington
lo nv-ohl entnniillni; alliances Is Irs nntent to
day than when the words were written. The
Amoricnn citizen has u right to co wherever
trade and enterprlso may legitimately seok an

Industry, and there must follow if need be the
overshadowing protection of the Mac."
