Blxto Lopoz. tho Sec retary of the FIUp'150 Jtiiiln, In Washington, called at tho Stato Department this afternoon v ndlettanomolnl communication fromBeflor Aconcllln. tho head of tho Junto. Ha did not see Secretary Hay. but fllod his communication with Chief Clerk Mlohaol. In tho document Softor Agoncllto oalla the attention of tho Secretary of Blato to tho fact that on .Inn 11 ho nildressed a lottor to him upon tho question of recognition, forwarding irlth It A memorandum demonstrating that. according to all Amorloan preccdonta, tho v Philippine republic wns entitlod to recognition ! anil In tho name letter Invited the attention oi tho Secretary to tho Present Btrnlnod conditions at Manila, whoro ororzoal on olthor aide might eionto a condition resulting In grlevou loss of lite, and urgod the necoaslty of an earls' and frank eommunlcntlon between tho representatives of tho. two countrlos. Ho call, attention also to tho fact that slnoo hit letter was written tho circum stances he fenred have brought tho two countries to tho edgo of war. and says that tho languago used by him was so prophetic that subsequent facts havo amply justlllcd Its employment. ITo desires now to call tho atten tion of the Secretary to certain condition which In his opinion, roqulro Immediate allegation. There aro. ho says, ot tho present time 20.000 American troops at Manila, controlling n population ot about IIOO.OUO A number of war vessols wero sta tioned In tho harbor and many othor Amorican men-of-war and transports wore to bo found , within tho archipelago, although the actual yoMesston ot tho Amorican troops oxtendod aver not to exceed 143 squaro miles out ot more than 200,000. ' "Despltntbls enormous force now In this ox trerncly circumscribed area," tho papor says, "we aro Informed through tho public; prints that other vessels of war havo been ordered from distant parts ot tho globe to rolnforco those now among the Islands in question, while a few days ago a transport sailed from New York city carrying about 2.(x0 soldiers, and having Manila as Its destination, and, as wo aio further Informed, regiments of troops aro undor orders to pro ceed byway of Ban Francisco to the Philip pines The public prints inform us also that an attack Is contemplated upon tho Philippine Islands: tho islands to bo tnkon in detail, tho smaller ones first, tho larger onos blockadod so that they mnynotosslstthoseflrstattackod." He sa) s thnt It Is naturally tho Impression of his Government and people that thoso warllko preparation Indicate existing or Immedlato military operations in the Orient, and they readily conceive thnt It mutt be contemplatod that such operations are to be lovelled at the existing Government ot tho Philippine Islands. "As the representative of the Philippine Gov ernment, "he continues, " I hesitate to give ad hesion to this Idea, tor I cannot believe that there Isany present or future difficulty between tha American and FhlHpplnoGovernroonts'juH- Wring warlike activities, and as a bjlicver in the humanity of the American people, retuso to acqulesco In the Idea that America designs war upon the Philippine Islands." , " lie points out tho fact that but lately tho United States and the Philippine Government have been associated la a conflict against a common enemy, tho United States ac complishing its purpose by the expul sion of Spain from, tho .West Indies, while tho desfro of tho Philippine repub lic has been practically attalnod by tha almost complete expulsion of tho Spanish Gov ernment from the Philippine Islands, the Phil ippine Government now holding as prisoners of war between 0,000 and 10.000 Spanish soldiers, nnd tho Spanish possessing onlv 0 few small garrisons In isolated points of minor importance. Ho is therefore un able to conceive nny reason why tho armies nnd nation of tho United States, lately nmploved against a common enemv, should tinjnrned ngnlnst) America's reoont as sociates Tho United States, he says, has no nctlvo enemy In the Orient, having pro claimed nn nrmlstleo with Spnln. It Is true, ho continued, thnt Spain has undertaken to convoy to the United Btatos its alleged claim against tho Philippines, n claim which Spain was not capable of enforcing and which nevor found Its origin In tho cotiBont of tho people of those islands. ' rc my Government and peoplo to bo loft to supiiose." ho Inquires, " that It is because of some desire on the part of tho Amorican Gov ernment to enforce against Its late nssjolntes this exploded claim that the United Stnto is naming Its forces at tho lato capital of the Philippine Islands?" Ho points out that the Phlllpplno Islands aro in a state of order, possosHlng a government satisfactory to their Inhabitants, without an ommy within their borders offering any resis tance to Its operations and at peace with nil tne world, ifo Is sure tho Secretary of Mute will appreciate. In view of tno circumstances detailed, tho quieting and reassuring otfeets upon tne minds ot his coun Wl ,0 result from a disclaimer on tho pnrt ft tne American Government of anylntontlon to attack their liberties and independence. t Notwithstanding tho difficulty he labors undei n not having been formally received, hi. finds it his Imperative ditty to call tho attentio.i ot the Secretary to the disturbing facts so enumerated, so that ho may recelvo such as surances s will satisfy his Government that 11 n not tha intontlon of America to make "".upon the now republlo of Asia, which will explain to It tho reason why warmes and navies should bo desbntohed t" 'he riilllpplno Islands, and which will ro lete his countrymen of the fear that now possesses them, that their liberties nro In 'anger nt tho hands of a republlo whoso "W,,hoy have always believed wns associated "' ,r!'';dom and to which they first came for recognition Alter expressing his gratitude to America for forvicen rendered aud hoping that friendly re lations may continue.

Whon, however, an officer or member of the church Is asked just what did happon, ho will mako a reply some like this: "If anything did happen, if anybody in nnger Bald harsh things about his brother, they have boen forgotten. They aro not even history, bocause thoy have boen entiroly ox pungod from the records ot tho church. The meeting held early In January and tho one held last Thursday night should novor havo been callod." In tho first or second wcok of January, It ap pears, an officer of the church wrote a lettor to tho Itov. B. B. Bosworth, tho pastor. In which It wan Intimated that tho church would be bet ter off if Mr. Bosworth would resign. Tho lettor hurt tho pastor's feelings so that ho called a meeting ot tho congregation shortly after receiving the letter and made, a statement of tho contents.

The bill Inflicts a heavy penalty on persons or Boclstlcs who send homeless chlldron Into the Stato. In explaining his bill Sonator Anderson said It was Intendod as a protootlon against a class of hardoned criminals who almost Invariably found their way Into tho Kansas reformatory and ponltontlary.

TEBBICI AGAINST NAT OOODWIN. A Chicago Reporter (Sett n 810,000 Award for nn Alleged Stolen Flay. CnioAao, Jan. 24. John Maxwell, n roporter ot the Chicago Tribune, obtained a vordlct this evening of $10,000 damagos against Nat 0. Goodwin, the woll-known comedian, for al leged Infringement of his copyrighted play, "Congross." The jury decided that Mr. Good win's comedy called "Ambition," which Max well says was deliberately pirated from his Play, was an Infringement on tha plaintiffs rights. The jurors were unanlmouslylln favor of awarding damnges hut consumed two hours in agreeing as to the amount. Somo wanted to give Maxwell ns high as $50,000. while others voted for as low as $1,000. By "averag ing up" they fixed upon $10,000 as the prooor assessment against tho actor. Tho enso. which was begun about two years neo, has keen on trial for a weok beforo .Tudgo Seamnn In tho United Btatos Circuit Court. Muoh evidenco wns offered by both sldos but tho preponderance was that "Ambition," of which llcnry Our Cnrloton Is tho reputed au thor, wan In many scenes almost Identical with Maxwell's play. Stuxwell sworo that hetookhlw play to Goodwin In 18)15; that Goodwin kept It a weelc and then returned It saying he could not aaeept It because of tho prmlnonco of the labor feature In It. Several experts testified that "Ambition" must hnvo boen written after a reading of tho plot ot "Congress." To-day Judge Seaman denied the motion of Goodwin's attorney to take the caso from tho Jury. Tho attorney's point was that even If the dofendant hnd deliberately stolon tho Chi cago man's play, tho plaintiff was entitled to no recompenso because his copyright on "Con- f tress" had not been perfected. The court eld that ths case must go to the jury and be deolded on fucts and not on a point ot law. WINTEB TIlUNDEIt SQUALU Sky Full of ItenI Jersey Lightning nt 11 o'clock nt Night.

Tho Ohio Supreme Court rtefusei to Remove Special Master llrlnsmade. CoLUimus, O.. Jan. 24. Tns Supreme Court to-day overruled tho motion of Attorney-General Monnott to remove Allen T. Brlnsmade. who was appointed by the court to tako testi mony In tho contempt prooeedlngs agnlnst ths Standard Oil Company. The grounds of the motion were that tho master was favoring tho company and had refusod and failed to ex orcise the powor vested In him as such officer of tho court to compel tho ofPcers of the cor poration to produco certain books which had been demanded. Wnon the motion wns ar gued two wooks ago the court asked Ylrgll P. Kline, who ropresontod the Standard Oil Company, whether the officers would not pro duce tho books. To the Inquiry ho said no, and said further that if they wore held to be In contompt on ncoount of their refusal to do so they would seek to secure tholr liberty through habeas corpus proceedings in the United Btntes Court. This defiance ot tho court and Its orders in opsn session caused a sensation, and It was expected that In tho decision handed down to-day there would be included an order commanding the officers of the corporation to produco: tho much-wanted books, but this question was Ignored. The decision Is a victory for the trust, and yet It does not Imply that this defiance of tho court will not be taken into consideration In tholflnal summing up of tho cose, lhe de cision leaves ths Attorney-General in an em barrassing position, as his hands are tied In the matter of eeourlng tho company's books, which are said to! contain evidence essential to ths successful prosecution ot tho case.

Ho urgod on open session, , 1 in order that Sonntors opposod to tho trcatr ri could reply In tho open to such arguments as ( j wore advanced this afternoon bySonatorLodgo 1 In his speoch on expansion. j 1 It was suggested to Mr. Borry that tho argu- jj inont of Mr. Lodge, could bo mot by dobatlne ho Vost resolution or tho other numerous reso- I lutlons that havo boon offered on tho subject. l Admitting that this was true Mr. Borry said i that such speeches could not properly be mado (g without tho violation of obligations ot Bena- t J tors, and that all Sonntors who had discussed l?- tho treaty on these vnrlous resolutions had. In i' effect at least, violated the spirit of tho rules. k which required secrocy with respect to tho l4' treaty questions. 1 3 Taking up anothor phaso of tho caso, Mr. !

H Senator Fryo again took Senntor Honr of Mas- sachusotts to task for his conduct In joining? tho ranks of thoso who wero seeking to pro- e vont tho ratification of tho tronty.

' if! future, and ho was unablo to reason out why 1 IL theso gontlemon had reached tholr conclusions. , Thero was, ho declnrod. need of speedy action In ordor that them should be no friction bo twoon tho United 8tnto nnd the Insurgents. Nothing could bo done with tho Filipinos until . tho United States and Spain hnd rutihVd tha J treaty and this Govornmont had .1 clour tltlo to tho territory which Spain hnd ceded. Mr. 1 rye deolnred that thoro wero abundant ' reasons why the treaty should he discussed In '. socret sessions. Tho reasons worn apraront S to ovory man. It wan manifestly lmpossllilo ; for tho Sonnto to discuss In open session , tho attltudo ot tho Cuban Insurgents toward. this Governmont, tho delimit position of ' the Insurrectionists In tho Phllipplnos. and I thn difficulties that presented themselves .- to tho rooresontativos ot this Government In that Island. Tho ono great reason that sug gested tho Impossibility or opon Hosslons. Mr. Frye said, was tho discussion of tho attltudo of tho Gorman Governmantnnd thu nets of tile German Admiral nt Manila during the tlmo whon Admiral Dowcy .vos nurroundod by so many oxnspcrntlng situations forced upon him. by thn meddling policy of tho naval roproscnta-' tivoof tho German Govornmont. Mr. Frye asserted that all these things ought to appeal to tho reason ot a man liko Senator Hoar, and ho expressed his surprise that tho ' Konnfor from Massachusetts would lond him soil to nnytehomo that had for Its object the confusion ot tho country and the Administra tion In a tlmo liko tho prosent. The situation In dnd around Manila. Mr, Frye said, was such that It would he abtolutoly Impossible for tho m Senate to discuss tho treaty In all Its bearings In such a wuy that the dobatos could bo sent to the country und to Europe. H Mr. Hoar resented tho statoments of Mr. if Fryo. Ho did not, ho said, bellovo thero should m bo any question In tho consideration of this W troaty that could not properly como beforo tho H American people. As a rule ho was In favor of ft the strictest secrecy in thu discussion ot trea- n tlei, but In this caso Mr. Honr believed tho m more open tho discussion could bo ths bettor h It would be for the country. Ho was not In fa- ffl vor of the United Stales exercising sovereignty m over the Phlllpplno Islands, and whatever ths fj Gorman Admiral may have done while Ad- uj inlral Dewey was conducting his operations 91 ngnlnst Manila had nothing to do with tho set- U tlemeutof thaiiollcyol the United States with fl respect to tho Islunds, Ho tartly replied to Mr. g) Fryo's suggestions that ho wbb not conducting fj himself properly, and said that he would sottis J that matter with his own conscience. Bl Mr Teller, In reply to Mr. Hoar, argued la Jt favor of a secret session, nnd urgod that tho first thlngto be done was tho ratification of the troaty. This done, the ground would be cleared und tho Government would then bo nolo Jo pro ceed In working out tho future of tho Philip pines Mr. Teller dhl not deslro the Filipinos us oltlzens of this country any mure than did tho Senator from Massachusetts, but ho did believe that nothing could be accomplished until thn treaty had been ratllled and tho way blared for n settlement of tho whole question He wnt In favor of n resolution that would put tfie Philippines 011 tho same piano with Cuba, but tho tlmo wan not yet rlpo for such a resolution, and It had no part In ths treaty of peace Ho was not onenfihoso who sought to glvo tho peoplo of tho Orient thu rights of American cltireiishlp, and tha arguments advanced by the senior Sona tor from Massachusetts gavo him no alarm. Still ho did want to glvo the penplonf thoso islands all thn blessings of libcrt) and fioedom, and this ho thought would nvoiitunlly romi to them. The first thing to do was 10 get Sniilu nut of thn islands and this would only im done legally when the treaty was nttllle.l.
