Philippine Indemnity Likely to He Paid Through the New York Sub-Treasury. Washington, April 11. Xo definite arrange ment has been made for paying tho f 20,000,000 indemnity to Spain, as authorized by the treaty of Tarls. It was said at the Treasury Department to-day that tho Government would not deem ItHolf under obliga tions to deliver tho money In any form on the other sldo of the ocean, but that a warrant for the $20,000,000. prob ably on the New York Sub-Treasury, would bo issued to any person bearing proper oredon tlals from the Spanish Government showlmr that ho Is authorized to receive it on the be half of Spain. This was tho position taken by Socrotary Gage several weeks ago, nnd he has maintained the same view up to this time. The payment of the Indemnity was briefly discussed at the meeting ot tho Cabinet to-day. The Presldont and his advisers concurred ln Secretary Gage's view of tho matter some time ago. Secretary Hay said to-day that the French Ambassador, 31. Cambon. had been requested to Inform tho Madrid Government thnt the $20,000,000 was payable In any form, either ln Now York or Washington, at any time an agent should bo delegated to receive It. No roply has been ro colvod from Spain. It may bo that tho indem nity will bo paid through tho agenay ot the Trench Embassy. It Is thought in Wall street that tho payment of $20,000,000 to Spain will be made without dlsturblnft the money market. Tho money.lt 1b stated, will be paid lnthe form ot a Treasury warrant upon the Sub-Treasury, and the rep resentative ot Spain will be at liberty to cash it and transfer the amount abroad ln any way he 'sees tit. It is sup- fosed that tho warrnntwlll be collected hroutrh the New York Clearing Houks. and that the amount will be transferred abroad by the shipment of exchange. It was reported yestorday that all the exchange arrangements had already been practically completed. BPAiy 2IIAT SKSO AS AilBASSADOB. At Any Rnte, She Intends to Iietnme Diplo matic Negotiations at Once. Washington, April 11. Spain has marked her resumption of peaceful relations with the United States by a graceful act that will un doubtedly have a good effect. Through 31. Cambon, the French Ambassador, she has In formed this Government of her desire and in tention to resume diplomatic relations imme diately. It is evidently the intention of the Spanish Government to show this country that it acoeots the declaration of peace as an actual and not a technical ending of tho war. The President has responded quickly to tho Im plied friendliness of Spain by decldlncto ap point a Minister to Madrid as soon as an offi cial announcement is made by the Spanish Government ot its choice of a diplomatic rep resentative to the United States. It appears nractlcally certain that Bella my Storcr of Ohio, the presont Min ister of the United States to Belgium, will bo sent to Madrid. Mr. Btorer is a man otoulture and wealth, He has made a good record as Minister at Brussels and it is believed will be in every way acceptable to the Gnvernrueat of Spain. Mra. Storer Is a Cath olic, and that fact, ln addition to her personal qualities, may do much to make tho official ini personal relations ot her husband with the au thorities in Madrid muoh pleaianter than might bo expected by the first American Min ister to take up his residence In the Spanish capital since the close ot a war In which Spain lost to the United States her three most valu able colonies. Mr. Storer's name was not the only one considered. The duties which the new Minister will be called on to perform will be ot a very delicate character. In view of the feeling in Spain againit Americans, but the Administration lias every oonBdenoe In Mr. btorer's ability to fill the offlue with credit. It is understood that the.Duke of Areos will bo the Minister of Spain to the United States. The announcement of his appoint ment will probably De made in Madrid In a few days. Spain, according to Information re ceived heie. has had the appointment of a Minister to Washington In contemplation for some time and awaited only the formal procla mation of peace by President MeKlnler to make publlo the name ot the new envoy. The reappointment ot Gen. Stewart L. Woodford of New York to the post whloli he vacated on the breaking oft ot dlplomatio re latione between Spain and the United States has never be in considered. This, however, wag not due to anr dissatisfaction with Gen. Woodford's conduct while Mlnletor at Madrid, but to nu unwritten law of International In tercourse that n diplomatic representative who has receded his passports shall not be re turned to the capital whuro he was serving at the time. For the same reason tne Spanish Government could not fend back to Washing ton Seilor I'o o y Bernabe. who withdrew from this capital on tho day he received from the State Department an ofltolal copy of the resolution adopted by Congress authorizing the President to uae armed Intervention to end Kranleh rule In Cuba. There were other rea hons. ileo. why Heflor Polo would not have been acceptable to this Goiernment. His con duct of a eyhtom ot espionage an the United States from Canada made him objectionable to this countrv. and It Is said thoro was an other nnd more personal matter In which he whs iniohed that would have prevented the President from again receiving him as the ofll clsl representative of Spain. The Government has also been Informed in directly that Spain Intends to make her repre sentative to the United States nn Ambassador. This Is plainly another Indication of the deslie of Spain to overcome the bitterness engen dered by the war. Should Spain do this Jlr. Storer would also be raado an Ambassador to the Oiiecn Jtecent. Under the law of Cou gross providing for the elevation of a diplo matic mlsMon to the rank of an hmbassy, the Initiative rau-t I o taken br the foreign coun try concerned. Ambassadors are regarded as the personal representatives of the heads of their Governments, ami as such ate empow ered to deal directly with the sovereigns or executive heads of the Governments to which they are accredited.

M.-A largo force ot Insurgonts from tho eastern foothills made an attack early this morning upon the Kith Minnesota Infantry, which was guarding the railroad lnthe vicinity of Bocave, and tho fight ing soon became general between Marllao and Gulguinto. Oon. Whoaton came down from 3talolos with reinforcements as soon as possl bio, and nn armed railway train was also brought Into requisition, with tho result thnt the rebels wcio routed nnd put to flight. Tho losses of the enemy In killed and wound ed are estimated nt over fifty. The losses of tho Americans wore three killed and fifteen wounded. Previous to the Insurgents' attack tho tele graph wires had been out by non-combatant Filipinos protending to be friendly, and this considerably hampered the Americans in com municating with Mnlolos for reinforcements. Last night five men of tho Second Oregon Infantry, who were patrolling the railroad noar Mallnta. were ambushed by the insurgents and two of them were killed and the other three wounded. For several nights past signal fires havo been burned in the mountains to tho east, so that the attack of tho insurgents was not altogether unexpected. fil.Y, l.AH'TON'S AUrASCK. Ills Victory at Santa Crux Incident In the Capture of the Town. Sptnal Cable DnpaitS in The Bu. 31AN1LA. April 11-10:30 A. M.-Oen. Lnwton's advance on the rebels beyond Santa Cruz was continued this morning. The total number ot the enemy driven from tho town Is estimated at 1.000. They lost 150 killed and wounded In tho attack on Santa Cruz. Among thoirdead is Commandaute Pablo Agulrrn. Santa Cruz Is a prosperous and well-built town. It will probably bo used by Gen. Law ton as the base of his operations around Laguna de Bay. During the advanco on Santa Cruz, when the troops wero hnlf way to tho town from the landing place, an attack was made upon them by a single Filipino, who, remaining behind when his comrades fled, secroted himself In a house whioh he knew the Americans would pass. When Gen. Lnwton and his staff reached this place tho rebel, who was only eight feet distant, fired polntblank at tho group ot Amorlcan officers. Fortunately In his excite ment his aim was bad and tho bullet flew wide of its mark. After firing the native jumpod from a window and flred from the yard, but again failed to hit anybody. As the daring Filipino jumped from the win dow some of the Americans started after him. Before he could get out of the yard he was sur rounded and shot three times. Even then ho would not surrender, until he wa9 struck with a gun and completely disabled. Close to tho town there was a bridge 200 feot long. The Insurgents had barricaded this and made an attempt to hold It. A company each of the'F6urtoenth regulars and North Dakota vol unteer! advanced to the bridge under a heavy fire from behind the barrlcado and from some stone houses close to tho npproach to tha bridge. Our troops speedily toro down the bar ricade, but before this was accomplished tho natives, after delivering a tew parting shots, fled back into the town. In the meantime tho others ot the American force did not wait until the bridge was taken, but forded the river and drove the enemy east ward through the town onto tho flats border ing the lake, where the gunboats Nnpldan. Oeste and Laguna de Bay brought their Gat ling guns Into play and, aided by the lire from the troops, killed and wounded seventy of the natives. Several ancient Spanish cannon and also a number ot Imitation cannon manufactured out of gaspipe by the insurgents wero captured. The streets and houses when our troops entered the town indicated that tho inhab itants had deserted the place on Sunday night. Contrary to the usual custom, tho rebels did not attempt to burn the town when they aban doned It. The Spanish prisoners held by the Insurgents are reported to have been removed a week ago. showing that the natives expected the town to be attacked. On Sunday night two mon of tho Fourteenth Infantry, which was then bivouacked about two miles from Santa Cruz, ventured a hun dred yards beyond the American lines. They were Immediately surrounded by natives, who attompted to take them into the insurgent lines. The two Americans were disarmed by tholr captors, but one of them, Private Jlyers. managed to conceal his bayonet In a leg of his trousers. Whlloon the road to the Insurgent lines My ers suddenly drew the bayonet andstabbedthe Filipino who was guarding him. At the same tlmo the other prisoner grabbed his guard'x rill and struck out with It in every direction. The natives wcro taken by surprise, and toth tho Americans ran for their lives In the direc tion ot their camp. 3Ivers reached the Ameri can lines safely, but tho other man did not ar rive and It was thought that he was lost. Searching partleswere sent outtolook forhlm. but no trace of him could be found. Monday morning ho was discovered by an American skirmisher hidden In a tree, which he had climbed to escape tho Hliplnos who had pur sued him. LAW TOX'll YICIORY AT SASTA CIIUZ. Regarded Now n Greatly More Impurtunt Than It Was at First Supposed. Washiuqton, April 11, War Department ofllcials are greatly pleased at tho capture of Santa Cruz by the expedition under Gon. Law ton. It is regarded hero as a much creator victory than it was at first supposed. Santn Cruz Is the military koy of Laguna de Bay, and its capture is ot the greatest importance. The victory of tho iAmerlcana wascomploto. Fol lowing aro tho cable despatches rccolved from Gen. Otis this morning: "Manila. April 11, 1800.

Otis." The interpretation which the War Depart ment officials place on these despatches Is that the campaign In Luzon, which u week ago ap peared to have been brought to a rather In decisive olose. hus been renewed again In a wai tlist promises to rival in brilliant results the operations ot MacArthur's flying column. Without disparagement of tho other Gonorals great eredlt Is given to Gen. Lawton. and the moral Influence of the reinforcements which he took with him to the Philippines is very great. The War Department Is this morning more hopoful of speedy, successful results, per haps, than It has been nt any tlmo within the lost two weeks. The fact that the American losses wero so light, and that the army la in a condition to pursue the fleeing Filipinos with- ! out resting.

"Regina Coelil" she exclaimed for the third time, and then Dr. Lees shouted "Bico tnbe Concepts, I" Then ho fell ovvr on the cot. "You must go now," said the hospital clerk, leading the woman away. As sho was going out she offered one of her dlamoad rings to the clerk as pay tor the courtesy he hud shown to her. "Won't you give your name nnd address." said the clerk.

GallllTet that he had not known ot the Dreyfus nffalr during all the years he was In Trance. Ho did not know Dreyfus, but was astonished that Esterhazy was free. All tho attaches In Franco know thnt Estorhazy could be bought for one or two thou sand francs. Gen. Galllffet did not report Gen. Talbot's statements because Esterhazy's rela tions with the attache's were known to all tho staff SI. Caslmlr Porter deposed that he had re fused to glvo evidence In the Zola trial on tho ground ot lil.s constitutional irresponsibility. Gen.

Dupuy appointed a tlmo for nn Interview Tho tele gram demanded to know why tho newspapers Implicated the German Embassy In the Drey fus affair. The President called tho Ambassa dor's attention to the unusual course taken, and told him that the application should have been made through the Foreign Minister. 31 Caslmlr Torler addod. however, that he was willing to accept the request in tho quality of an honorable private person, and to explain everything He then informed the Ambassador of the piece of paper discovered at the German Em bassy. The Ambassador declared that this was impossible. Stany ploces wero brought thore. he said, but it was Impossible tor an im portant pleco to be mislaid. M. Caslmlr P5rlor paid: " Tortunatoly, we consider the piece unimportant." Tho Government did not implicate the embassy, which was no moro re sponsible for documents taken to it than tho the Government was for doenmonts delivered to it. The Ambassador requested a further meeting, when It was explained that the inci dent was ended. "Tho Ambassador did not mention Drey fus," said the witness. "Gen. Merelor told mo that the 'cnuallle' documents were shown to tho court-martial and not told to the Judges only. Gen. Moroier reported that Dreyfus had confessed. I do not remember Capt. Lebrun Renaud coming to the Elytee to report the confession. Ho camo to be reprimanded for his indiscretion In communicating with jour nalists. 31. Dupuy was present. The subjoct of the reprimand was an article in the JYfjaro. evidently Inspired byLebrun-Benaud, in which Dreyius protestod his innocence." Gen. La. Rocho testified that when ho was in command in Madagascar Capt. Dtiprat in formed him that Freystaetter constantly re ported that Dreyfus had been convicted be cause he had betrayed the plans of the Nice fortifications. Seolngthat this had not been montioned ln the trial. La Rocho concluded that It had not been shown to the defence. "On the day that Henry's forgery was dis covered," said La Booho. "I was meeting Ad mhalDuperre at a train. lie told mo that Archduke Victor ot Austria had informed him upon his word of honor that the Germans had hud no relations with Dreyfus."

It was agreed that no speeches should be made, but theoompaot was abrogated amid amusement, and Sir. Clioate was unable to escape making an Impromptu reply to a (oast to himself. Ho said that his lifo since his arrival in England had been n round ot entertain ments, with the unfailing accompaniniont of spoech making, which wns one of Great Britain's principal sports. Ho had already been asked to speak at fifty charity dinners. He stole away sometimes to rtudy thoothor manuors and Institutions of England, which, however, wore no new studies to himself or his countrymen. ThehO studies wero dear to Americans, because thoy reminded them of tho ties of kinship and took them back In Imagination Ito tho titno "when the mother country had not seceded from the common partnership " He continued with an air of gravity, which momentarily puzzled his hearers, saying that It was always open to her to como back. Sho would find America's arms wide open to receive her. Sho had taken away with her a great deal of the general property of the race, but that was being re stored to tho common fund with every Inter change of friendly feeling between the two peoples. It was his principal duty to pro mote that feeling anil with It tho peace of man kind. His task would bo lightened If English men would travel In hlscouutryforobsorvatlon and study, as Americans travelled In the old land. The speech wa heartily applauded. UNLUCKY MOTOltMA.Y RIEt.I.T.

PiliLAnKLPiliA, April 11. A series of Inter- ; estlng developments marked the seeond day of ' the trial ot former Unltod States Senator Mat- 7. thew Stanley (Juay. Sluch to tho surprise of every one. uftertlio conclusion of thoexamlna- tlon of Thomas W. Barlow, receiver of the wrecked People's Bunk, former Judge James Gay Gordon was called to the stand and questioned as to tho iiossesslon of the letter and books of tho 1'eople's Bank, which heno knowledgcd had beun lu his possession for several months. Tho cross-examination of Mr. Barlow was full of Interest, and It wns during ' this examination that It became known that forsovoial months the letters, papers nnd books usod in the trial had been In t hecustody of Judge Gordon. It was also in evidence that while ther wero in possession ut tlio Judge Ihoy hod been shown to David Martin. John Wiiuaniaker, Col, i Jainos SI. GufToy nnd Henry C SfcCormlek, This was previous to the Institution ot criminal proceedings against Quay. It has been maintained for months that Judge Gordon had been the principal Instl- gatorof the proceedings against Quay, and to day's events hhowed not only that, hut that In order to press the matter to tho hlttor end hej had resigned his place ns a Judge of the Court of Common Ploas. The day opened with Thomas W. Barlow, receiver of tlio Peoplo's Bank, on the stand. When he retired tho District Attorney called James Gay Gordon. Immediately there was u, murmur, which was stopped by tho ery for "Sllenco!" by tho court officers. Judgo Gor don ascended tho stand, and as he calmly placod his hands behind him. Quay, who had a bored look during tho exam ination of Sir. Barlow, straightoned up. his foet ceased tholr restless knocking to gether, and the eyes which had lookod rather dull glaied at tho man who by the lawyers lot the defence had been characterized ns Quay's "bitterest political onemy." Judge Gordon plncldly looked about tha room, as If unconscious of the sensation hl presence on the stand had caused and without a glanco at Quay, whllo he stood watting to bet sworn. Opposite him. his cheek resting on hiss right hand and his elbow upon a table, sat John Wanamuker. Judgo Gordon was sworn, ; "To whom did you show thoso papert?" asked the District Attorney. "To a friend ot mine, who first told me o them." "Who was that?" "David Martin." " Who next saw them ?" "John Wanamaller. Ho saw them onej morning at my houso." As this was uttered Quay's face twitched, and ho showed that ho was laboring under ex cltomont. Mr, Wanamakor's countenance dldj not change. "To whom elso did you show thorn?" "To Mr. Harris, D. A. Orr and to the editor I and proprietor of a newspaper at Harrlsburg." j The witnoss also said that he hnd shown I somo of tho letters to Col. James 31. Uuffey oa i a train coming over from New York. ! "Who is Guffey?" asked Sir. Shields amid j the laughter of thoso presont. Judge Gordon ; also smiled rather ironically ns Sir. Shields ex- j plained that he desired the Information for tin j purposo of Identification. " Who is Guffey?" again askod Sir. Shields. "Ho Is u man incapable of description Its words." This sally ot Judge Gordon's was greeted br , an uproarious burst of laughter which the) criers had to suppress. An nlrof mystery was thrown over tho case) by tho statement of Sir Barlow, who told of a strange message ho received ovor the tele phono on Slnrcli 20 from Harrlsburg, warning 1 if tn that In thodeskof John Hopkins, cashier of the People's Bank, who committed suicide, there were a lot of private books and papers; which weio to be taken out that night mid which ought to be In his custody Who sons this mesmgo from Harrlsburg Sir. Barlow was unable to tell Upon receipt of tills information Sir. Barlow snld ho bad nntlllod Judge Gordon and hist clerk, Albert L. Tuber. Asked why ho had no tilled Judgo Gordon, he said: "As the confldentlul ndvlserand attorney of Janios SleJiiiues. Piesldent of the bank." That ululit. in company with Judgo Gordon, Sir. Tabcrund a reserve policeman, lie vvout to the bank, took the books and papers, and had them curried to the Real Estate Trust Company building, where they were de posited Ijitor that night he went buck und examined them in company with Judge Gor don und Sir, Harris. They hnd meantime heen in possession of Messrs Gordon and Harris for two or three hours. The witness said that prior to the t line Slessrs. Gordon and Harris had seen the books ho had seen tho papers and books. and had also seen twelve pages of the "red book." which ho scrutinized more closely later. "On tho first examination did you discover that a number of pages had been torn out?" " There wore uo indications that any had been toru out." Sir. Barlow insisted that if the book had been mutilated it had been mutilated before ho took possession of tho books and papers. He had never discovered that any leaf from it was) ' misting. The witness affirmed that the papers were returned to him by Judge Gordon and nahi that he knew of none missing. i "Why did you us reeelvnr of tne bank," he was asked, "permit a Judgo ot the court to takn tho papers V" "I told you before that Judge Gordon was the personal and confidential friend of Sir, SleSInnes. the President of tho bank, who had agreed to pay nil the dehts ot the Peoplo's Bank. As Judge Gordon was a man honored , and respected " Here the dofence objected that Juuge Gordon's character did not enter i Into the case. "Did you know " Sir. Shapley asked, "that he was going with those papers to try to inaka himself Governor?" "Ot cou mo I didn't," replied tho witness, tartly "Did you know that he took them to the) Btratford Hotel toshow them to David .Martin?'1 "Id d not " "Did you know that he took thoso letters to ' New York with Sir Wanamaker to show them to .Mr James Guffoy?" "I did not ' The wltnots was askod if he knew that Judge -., Gordon prtedlopon the desk and saw the papers bofore tho time ot the first visit. The witnoss said that between the time of his first visit as receiver and ills second his recollection was! that Mi Gilkesou. State Banking Commis sioner, had said lie had seen the letters ot Sir. Quay i The dofence observed that Sir Barlow's name was on the back of tho Indictment in th case, and ho was asked "Are you the prosecutor In thlsiaso?" j " I object," said Sir Rothermol " But I want to know so as to got at the motive." "I oljject," repeated tho District Attorney, . The objection was sustained. Examination was then confined to alleged I missing pages of the " rod huok." but the wit ness steadfastly maintained that the book was the same as when it came Into his possession, "I did not clearly understand," snld Sir. Shapley, addressing thswltness. "whetherynu noticed the fact that there wns certainly one leaf missing when you first looked at the book. v when It was first placed In Judgo Gordon's bauds.
