Src nid That in ilmiaiuling and receiving the ccs

Third That whereas, at the time of the dcrlarv

tlio writings of liulillolsts. Ho criticised tlio
Jpcocbcs of BcnutorH Vest, UilTory. Hear and
Mason.
"Thntof the Senator from Massachusetts."
he said, "when redu ivd to practical proposi

Mr. Hoar was coaded Into nn explanation of
Ids position in reunrd to tho acquisition of ter

If wo thought It essential to our natloml

national crime, to bo repudiated nnd de

better go down beneath tho vvntors or the l'a
olfli) In honor tnthcr than illsciacc Itself by
doing that thing."
Mr. Fornker uttoilv repudiated anv such
doctrine as that, and ho held that the (lov em
inent had an unqualified nnd unrestricted
power to nequlro teriltiry bv trenty When
territory was acquired bv ticiitv was not tint,

According to letters received by several Ger
mans In tills city from fi lends In Hong Kong,
tho person who Iscredltod with dovlslng plots
against tho American Govorninont Is Prlnco
Jinny himself, who was In Hone Kong with
his squadion. Tho method of communlcntlnc
with the Insnigonts Is outlined In tho lotlers
as follows:
l'rlneo Henry ordors tho German Consul at
Hong Konc to send word to German Consuls
or Consular Agents at Manila, Hollo, and Malo
los to nssuro Agulnnldo nnd other Insurgent
chiefs of tho determination of tho Germnn

A flciman who has received a few letters

Is no doubt that the Government liasmntoilally
assisted the insurgents In tho Philippines ns
woll ns given them backbone to opposo thn
Americans Theio will be plenty of proof of this
later. Tlio Germans say they want onlv a coal
ing station, but thrtv desire to sccuio u pro
tcctoiate, at least. Tho feeling In tho German
colony In Hong Kong is very bitter against tho
uierieans Thoro is no reason fortius except
tho jealous fenr that America will seeuro tho
tiadn of tho rich colony Instead of Geimnn

opposition discouraging tho expansion eouti
nicnt in this eountrv, in which case it would bo
eav for Germany to soctiie tho simoeontiol
of tho Philippines Hint she wished to do over

Wasihniitov, Jan. 11 Advlcos received at
tho War Deinitnient this nftornoon ftotn
Maior-Gen Gils showed that the gcneinl
situation in the Philippines wns of such u
character as to glvo hopo of tlio avoldnnco
of a clash in Hie near future. Tho despatch,
which eoiisi-tod ot a few moro than a
hundred cipher sun hols, was ilcscrlLed as
"comforting" It did not contain any news
ofgieat importance, nud there wasnorefeienco
to tho situation nl Hollo, showing that Gen
Otis had not heard lioin there since tlieai
ilval of a steamship at Manila on Sunday '1 ho
tone of the messago Is very pleasing to tho
officials, who nro more worried about tho con
ditions prevailing aioiind Manila than they are
about tho deadlock between tho 1'ilipliios and
Gen Miller at Hollo
Tho belief is growing that thollolloaffnlrvvill
adjust Itself in time The insurgents thoro will
soon be cut off absolutely from communication
with Agulnaldo, and witli his bid iiilliieuee le
moved the I'anay leaders nieoxpcctPil to sub
mit to tlio deslies or Iho United Slates. Their
present stubborn attitude appears tobniuoiM
the result of falso stories told thorn b enemies
of tho United Slates Hum from anv strong do
sire to set up a government of their own.
'dies have been mndeto bellevethnt the Amsr-
lean troops are a set of cutthroats, mid are sus
picious accordingly
Thoro have beon uo new developments lo In
dicate! moio cloailytho chai aider of the outside
support that Agulnaldo is receiving and tlio
identity of those who aio affording it. Tlio
Administration is evidently sntlslled, however,
that Its suspicions aio well grounded, nnd
even effort will be made to locate tho source of
the substantial aid that Is being given to tlio
Philippine Insiii gents.
Admiral Dewey is on the lookout for fili
bustering expeditions, and ho will soon havo
tlio Islands of J.iinu and Psna very closely
potiolh'd liv naval vessels It Is believed Dial
Agtiinahlo cannot get uwn from tlio island of
I.iiou without being apprehended. Ills proc
lamations uu rcgaidcd heie as of hiicIi
a threatening clmneler that they afford
sufficient ground for his at rest. It is not
likely that any tiggii'ssive movement toward

It Is known that tho inquiry ot the Court of

I'enr of tho supporters of tho army has lod to
tho replacing oven now of Judgo Loew and

Tho luiinrtlalityof tho Court of Cassation Is
now hold to depend on whether Gen. Billot hnd
holgiognt tho timo Col. Plcquart received that
decoction from tho coutt. If ho did, then
Col. Plcquart was not unduly favored A

An is ho gives ten alleged facts, which ho
considers constitute tlio basis of a new In
quiiy. Among the chief items is thenl-llegu-tlon
fhat tho Magistrates of the Court of
Cassation vveto favorable to Dreyfus fiom tho
first Ho declares that J'insldent Lonw anil
( ouneillor Hard had nn Intel view with M
Leblols, Co! Picquart's counsel M do
Ileauiei'iilii! Interlaid the statements upon
which hu liases his demand for a new Inquiiy
with questions containing iunuendos
His arguments aie essentially as follows:
'1 hat I'lcsidcnt I oew 1 luisn M Hard lo act ns
loportoi instead of selecting tho do) en ol llm
coutt ' Isn't tills choice," ho asks, "an ex
ceptionally bullous affair and conlraiyto all

for his attacks against the decision of tho
Lourt-uiaitial '"
lie next asks If, on the occasion of divisions
connected with thn inquiry Into tho Dre)fus
case. President Loow did not alwavs cliooso
Magistiatns who hud previouslv been won ovoi
to the i auso of Dreyfus.
In tho Hind place, ho sa)s, the affair was eit
oiimseribed within tho terms of a legal ques
tion which wns formulated thus " Has there
beiii any now revelation of hicls which existed
In lSUl and which, if they had bucu known to
tlin Judges, would have led them to bring a
ciillctofacquitt.il'"
" J ask." continues, M. do licaiiropaiie, "wli)
tho inquiiy made by 1'iesldent Loew was not
followed by an immediate venllet of Diovfus's
innocence, inasniucli as It led to tlio rclnblllla
Hon of one of tlio witnesses in tho case,
Piequ.iit ''
Ho next asks If Piesidcnt Loevr did not dis
play hostility towanl eeilnln witnesses, par
ticularly Gencinls, when the court was leech

"I'ifthl)," he continues, "among tlio wit

"'Sixthly, did not Piesldent Loew, In exam

Seventhly, M. do Deaurcpalro calls attention
