Yasihnoton, Jan 3 Tho situation In the
- Philippines is still a eourco of anIet to the
' Ticsldcnt and liis Cabinet, but they were
Icrently relieved to-day by a tolccram from
Afaior-Gen. Otis, who expressed tlio belief
that thero was less dancer of trouble This
message was laid bolero tho Cabinot at Its rec
ular meotinc. It was cmieral In terms and did
ft no specify any particular plueo whole tho
londltioDs bad Improved. It did not Indicate
that den. Otis had heard any news from Hollo
Mnce hu sent the despatch received on Su
dar. in which tho eruvity of the situation theio
was sot fortli Hut Iloilo Is not eauslne nearly
so much concern as the condition of affairs In
the vicinity of Manila, vrhero Aculnnldo's main
army Is assembled. In 'aecoulaiico with In
structions sent by dlroction of tho President
and the Seerotary of AVar, Gen. Otis has for
, warded to ltric.-Clen. Miller at Hollo a copy of
jig the proclamation cabled to him n few day
i'JJ hbo. In which tlio Intention of the I'nlted
ip Mates to treat the I'dlplnos humanely and just-
ly Is explained, and it is believed hero that
when Gen. Miller isnuos this proclamation for
Pi -- tho benefit of tho Tillplno forces at Iloilo tlio
J present defiant attitude of the latter will
chance and Gen Miller's forces will bo per-
J milled to land without opposition.
The Government has determined to avoid a
conflict witli tho I'lliplnos if It is possible to do
K). Gen Otis was so informed in the instruc
tions telccruphed to him on Sunday It is be-
f Ueved by tho Prosident and liis advisers that
diplomatic treatment will brine the native
leaders at Hollo to a realisation of tho cood in
tentions of tlio United States. This confldenco
, is not felt in recard to the situation In Luzon,
however. Thore Is no telllnc what Aculualdo
ft mav do, anil tho patience of tho Government
Is beluc exhausted by his iittitudo. He Is re-
carded as a fomenter of mischief, who holds
j4 his people in line tlirouch ;fear. In anticipa
tion of a conflict vrith Aculnaldo's Luzon
rrmy Gen. Otis was Instructed not to de-eaio
his forco at Manila by sendlnc detachment
to occupy places in the Philippines ovacimted
l by tho Spanish If hostilities e.mnot bu
nvoided, the Government wants matters ho nr-
anced that the first clash shall coire betneen
the forces undei Aculnaldo's Immediate com
mand and the troops under Gen. Otis.
Meanwhile Aculnnldo has not been bcnled.
From something that was said In a despatch
from iin. Otiblt is bollnved here that ho will
bn at Malolos on Thursday, when tho Filipino
Parliament meets there. Malolos is a scorn
of miles or so from Manila Tho session of
the Parliament will develop Aculnaldo's
Kremlin unions nis iciiuucis, ami sonic, nmn
oltlclnl.s are inclined to believe that dissatls
r faction with his opiiosltlon to the Amerloaus
may cauno hU ovorthiow. He h.ih enemies
r amone his own people. Press despatches cave
fear of assasblDiilion as a reason for his dlnap.
." pearance from his headquarters nearCavlto.
I tlen. Otis has been instructed to proinnl.
cite tho proclamation cabled to him by the
War Department. It is believed itliat when
the I'lliplnos aro ncnuulnted with the Inten
tlous of the I lilted .States they will he will

llAnmsnuno, Pa, Jnn. 3. Senator Matthew
Stanley Quay passod a critical ntago to-night
In his fight tor reelection In tho joint caucus ot
tho Republicans of tlio Senate and Houso
when ho was declared the choico of tho caucus
after u great deal ot spoechmakltig In his
favor. Of tho 101 Republicans In tho two
houses 10U of them attended tho caucus and
08 east their votes for .Quay Tho other 11
present divided their votes between tlio former
Chairman of tlio Republican National Cora
mlttoo, B. 1', Jones of Pittsburg, and Senator
Magee of the same city.
It was upon the motion ot Senator Magco.
who has been a relentless opponent ot bonator
Quay for years, that tho choice ot the caucus
was made unanimous, Mnguo was chcerod
loudly when ho presuntod tho name of Jones
as a candidate for Senator in a modest spocoh,
but thero was a wilddemonstratlon of approval
when ho arose at tho conclusion ot the first
and only ballot in tlio caucus nnd moved that
tlio nomination of Senator Quay bo mado
unanimous. Many shrewd politicians regard
tills movo by-Mageo as a play for thofavorot
tlio Quay men should the Legislature bo dead
locked on Quay.
Among tho Inierestod spectators of tho pro
ceedings ot tlio caucus wero John P. F.lkln.
Chairman ot tho Republican Stato Committee;
John Garinan, Chairman ot tlio Domoarntla
Stato Committee, and Gen. Frank ltcedcr,
former Secretary of the Commonwealth, who
is discussed for Ids formor office, nud hundreds
ot prominent Republican leaders from all parts
of tho Stato.
Tho caucus loscmblod, ln,ma"nyof Its fea
tures, tlio famous Senatorial caucus of 1881,
when Henry W Oliver of Pittsburg was nomi
nated and subsequently defeated by John I.
Mitchell ot Tioga. In that memorable contest
fifty -six Republicans refused to participate In
tlio caucus. To-night tho absentees numbered
fifty-five. Senator Quay's friends Insist that
the history of tholfcWl contest will not bo re
peated, in so far as the defeat of tlio caucus
nomlneu Is concerned. They are confident that
tho action of tlie Republicans to-night will re
sult In a victory for tlicii favorite.
One hundred and twentv-oiglit votes aro
necessary to elect In tho joint session of tho
two houses on Jan. 17, and tho managers ot
tho Quay fight say to-night that the nineteen
votes still needed will bo forthcoming at tho
proper time. It is oven Intimated that n suffi
cient number of Demoeints will turn to Quuy
should their assistance beuccessaiy. Demo
cratic Inadeis. of course, deny this story, but
there Is some reason to believe that thero
Is basis for the Quay claims. At least ten
Democrats aie said to owe their nomination
and election to Quay Intliieuco in their several
dlstiicts, and they will come to Ids help should
It bu absolutely necessary to save him lrom de
feat. They will not bu impressed unless tho
tight botomestlcspeinte SenatorQuay'siiiaii

who remained out of the canons to-night will

ot nn address made by Prlnco Victor Napoleon,

said that ho had fully decided to take
action for the restoration ot tho French

IIo was now preparing therefor, and when

at tho head of tho movement. IIo added that
his brothor, Prlnco Louis, who would shortly
bo. Gen, Bonaparto, would fight beside him,
bringing to the Bonapartlst forces his prestige
and his military talent as woll as hli rank In
the Russian Army.
Prince Victor declared that ho and his
brother aro united In sincere affection. Tlio

Continuing, he said that ho was opposed to

tho Jews had unjustly acquired In Franco was
tho outcome of the weakness of parliamentary
covernraont, ami it would disappear it the
cause were removed,
IIo could not unMerstnnd tho demand for tho
expulsion of the Jows. Ho would noror aano
tlon a withdrawal of the clvlo rights that the
first Napoleon granted to tho Jews in 1804.
Princo Victor said little about tho Dreyfus
