Otis Says TrlpKinni Have lleen Sent to
Soldiers Urging Tlinm Not to Kc-enlUt.
Washington, Anrll 211. Secretary Alger has
lecolved from Gen. Otis a roply to the cable
gram nsklug him for particulars of the receipt by
tho United States soldiers In the Philippines of
what has been described by a member of tho
Cabinet us "treasonable and seditious com
munications from the I'nlted States "
Gen. Otis says In his reply that telegrams
wero sent to tho soldiers uiging them not to
re-enllst, nnd that they woro variously signed
"Committee" and "The Committee," and that
somo bore no signatures at nil. Secretary
Alger bus not made nubile tho text of Gen,
Otis's cablegram, nnd It Is theroforo un
certain whether tho commander of the
forces lin tho Philippines has confldod the
names of tho senders of these seditious
communications. Gen. Otis, however, ls ox
nllcltenough to conllrm the absolutonccurney
of The Sun's story, first published on Saturday
morning, exposing thu work that Is being done
by the enemies at homo of the Government's
policy of subjugating tho Filipinos nnd bring
ing about pence In the Philippines.
When The Hi'N'B story wus first published,
tho Associated Press set Its reporters to work
In Washington to obtain n denial of It. Thoy
wero unable to do so. but thinking It necessary
to make somo apology to Its clients for not
getting this most Important plecoof news, tho
discredited news organisation sent out the
following despatch:
" Washington-, April 22. A Cabinet officer Is
nuthoilt foi an absolutu denial of the story
that the Cabinet yesterday discussed an al
leged conspiracy In this country to weaken tho
United States In the Phlllpplnui,."
If a member of tho Cabinet made such n
statement he did so In ignorance or for thn
purpose of misleading the public, because tho
accuracy of Tin: Hun's original publication
was vorlflod from many official s.ourees. and
nobody was moro fully nware of Its accuracy
than tho Associated Pi ess reporters, who
of necessity must havo known the truth.
Against the nlleged statement of the anony
mous Cabinet officer mny ho placed that of
ono of his colleagues, who knows whereof ho
.speaks, mid who says that not only has
tho Administration learned with surprise of
the treasonable work thnt has been going on
in tho United States, but that the Government
is determlnod to learn the names of those who
are stirring up tho Unltod States soldiers to
sodltlon nnd to publish their uames to tho
Tho cablegram of Gen. Otis to tho Secretary
of War to-day H only the Mrst link in tho chain
ot evidence against the authors of tho treason
able propaganda. Other proofs will be forth
coming from time to time until the futilo plot
ls fully exposed.

Capt. Joseph D. Coghlanf the cruiser Raleigh
has received no letter of Inquiry Irom tho Nuvy
Department relative to his Friday night speech
at tht Union League Club, in which he told a
lory of Admiral von Dlederlchs's efforts to
worry Admiral Doway at Mnnlla, and what
tho American Admiral thought of tho Ger
man's Interference. Nor did Ihe fighting
skipper of the Itnlclgh recelvo orders from
the Navy Department on Saturday night to
roport to his ship. So far as dipt Coghlan
knows, no official communications havo been
sont to him from Washington sine the day be
fore the Union League dinner. The formal let
ter which, it was said In Washington. was mailed
tothe italelgh's Captain by Secretnry Long on
Saturday nfternoon. Inquiring whether the
press reports of his remarks wero correct, had
not reached the ship late yesterday afternoon
when sho left her Thirty-fourth street anchor
age In tho North Hlvor to go down toSandv
Capt, Coghlan's Inability to go to tho Mon
tauk Club from tho Army nnd Navy Club ou
Saturday night was not because he bail been
"ordered aboard his ship." as the roport went
out. It came about In this way: On Thursday
evening Capt. Coglilnu received a telegram
from tho Bureau of Navigation, asking him to
tolograph his anchorago to Washington, as the
department wishod to send a hoard ot inspec
tion to the ship. Whenever a ship goes into
commission or out of commission she is In
spected by n board of naval officers The
Kalelgh is to go out of commission very soon,
after sho Ik's gono down tho coast to
visit Philadelphia, Wllmlnctonand Charleston,
Capt. Coglilnu answered tho Washington in
quiry by tolograph ou Thursday, and tho next
day tho formal order for an Inspection was
sent by mnll to Capt. Coghlan through Rear
Admiral Philip, commandant of the New York
Navy Yard. The order was received at tho
navy yard on Saturday, and from there sent to
the Raleigh When tho order reached tho ship
tho Captain had gone ashore to attend tho din
ners at tho Armyand Nnvyand Montaukclubs
Most unexpectedly, tho Navy Department's
order instructed Cupt. Coghlan to take his ship
down to Sandy Hook on Sunday afternoon,
thero to no Inspected on Monday, A message
was sent from the Raleigh to Capt. Coghlan at
tho Army nnd Navy Club telling him ol tho
order for Inspection. Ho rccoived the messago
just as ho was leaving for the MontaukClub.
It was then nearly midnight. Tho Captain
know that many of his men wero ashore cele
brating tho victory of Manila Hay of a
year ago and that It would take a horole effort
to corrall thorn all In fourteen hours. His duty
was aboard ship, and nbonrd ship ho went. He
could have left the work for his executive offi
cer, rout that isn't tho way tho Raleigh's skip
per has ot doing things.
Since tho Raleigh has beon In this harbor,
und her officers have been dined and wined by
tho citizens ot New York, Capt. Coghlan has
tried to bo as loulont as ho could with tho
crow. After so many months away from
American shoroa they wero right glad to got
back, to Now York. Many of thorn have wives
and Bweothoarts hero, and they wanted
to see them. Capt. Coghlan has given
shore leaves with n free hand, and
tho men havo taken these leaves with
n freer hand. So many of thu men suc
cumbed to tho attractions ot the town thnt
when tho Captain got back to the ship at mid
night Saturday it was a (itiestlon whether the
crew wasulloat or ashore When, at .1 o clock
yesterday afternoon, the Raleigh welched
anchor and went down to the Ho.)k, fifty of tier
men wero nshoro and unaccounted for. 1 ho
Raleigh was shorthaniled when sho came here,
for her murines vvero frozen up at Fekin.nnd
sho had only the ten she look from the
Olyinpla ... . , ,
Capt, Coghlan's irank statement of some of
the facts of Geiman interfeteiice In the Philip
pines was not Intende I for the newspapers, so
tho Cuptuln has told his friends. When he
bpoke nt tho Union Leaguo Club and told of
some things which had become history among
the officers of Dewev's squadron. .Lapt Cogh
lan thought that he was as freo to tell
the plain facts at the Union League as
he was In his own cabin aboard the
Raleigh. Ho did not know that newspaper
men wero thero to report his speech. Had he
known that his speech was to be printed, ho
would have reserved his story of the Gorman
officer nnd Admiral Dewey until after tho
newspapermen had cone.
Ono part of Capt Coghlan's speech was mis
understood. Those who heard him under
stood him to say that Admiral Dewey's rep y
to tlm German officer's protest. Rut wo lly
the flag." was. "Those llags can be bought nt
half a dollar a yard anywhere Any one can fly
that flue." All that Capt Coghlan Intended to
quote the Admlrulas saying was. ' Any one can
lly that Hag." The uniarK about the market
valunof Hag goods wna Capt. Coghlan's own
running comment interjected In the story
Naval men know Capt Coghlan as an open
hearted, frank-speaking man, nnd they 'were
not surprised nt tlio Union League speech.
"Joe Coghlan was never cut out for the
diplomatic service." snld a .naval officer aboard
tho Raleigh vesterday. " He's a lighting man
to thu core. When ho says n thing he means It,
and he'll stand by it: In the navy he's n blunt
speaking mail, and he Isn't used to tho nlco
ways of diplomats nshoro He's got himself in
hot water once or twice boforo for saying whnt
he thought He was reduced thirteen numbeis
on one occasion, when lie might just ns well
have kent unlet. Hut no one ever heard Joe
Coghlan say anything that wasn't true'
Thn Raleigh will steam back to hor North
River nnchorago this atteruooii after her In
spection, in tlmo to allow her crew to go ashore
to uttend tho entertainment for them nt the
fnpt. Coglilnn's Talk About the Germain
nt Manila Agitates IIU Ofllrfiil .Superiors.
Washington. April 211. -Capt. Coghlan has
been asked by tho Secretary of tho Navy
whether he was corroclly quoted in tho
press accounts of his tpcsoli at the Unlou
League dinner, and ou hl answer will
depend whatever action the Navy Depart
ment will take. This Is the usual course.
nd the depaitment felt that it could not
be avoided. In ('apt. Coghlan's c.is. much
as his services nt Manila are valuod. Interna
tional obligations practically compelled tho
department to take some means of ascertain
ing the truth ot tho mattor. with tho Inuntlou
of ndoptius a course that will be satisfactory
to the German Government. Tho officials of
Ihe Administration ni hopeful, however, that
the pross reports exaggerated the remntkt. of
the Raleigh's commander.
As for ( ipt. ouzhlan s recitation of the
words of tho song "IIocii ' Der Ivalsor.' iftn
German Lmporor is disposed to bt affronted
over tho manner Id which hlsclnlm to didno
right is ridiculed, there Is no telling what the
end will be No action hns yet been taken by
the Navy Department with regard 'o the song.
The department wants to bear from Capt
Coghlan sbout It firs'.
A great lnnuv icars ago. when a voting ofll
cor. Coghlan wrote n letter to Chief Crrk
Mornn ot the Hureiiu ,f Navigation, accusing
Moriiu of iwrsecuting him It was u vi
Intemperate communication. Coghlan said lu
tho letter that he would follow Jlorau to
the end of his diys. or words to tint
effect, and endel nn with nn oath against
the Chief Clork Moran turned the lutlei
over to the Seeietary ol the Navy, and
Coghlan was eouit-martlaled. He sas con
victed and sentenced to a ycat's suspen
sion irora duty During tint lime he lost thir
teen numbers. He legaiued six ol them
through Ids pionr.otlon.for his services In the
battle of Manila llsy and has icccntly asked to
have the other numbers restored to him. Tim
Navy Department wns dlspo.-ed ti grant this
request, but Iho remarks of Capt. Coghlaif
at tho I nlon League dinner have changed that
disposition, It Is kald.
It is tho cplnion In Administration circles
that If Capt Coghlan makes an official apology
for his remarks against the Germans, the Rer
un Government irilt express Itself as satisfied.
In that ovont Cant. Coghlan will probably mt
be court inurtlullcd.

1iNDON, April 21 Tho papers horn this
morning give great prominence to the lepmts
of the romarks alleged lo have been inadn by
Capt Coghlan of the cruiser I'alolgh nt the
Union League Cfuhdlnncr. Tho 7'miei suys It
is much impressed by Societary Long's ptompt
application of discipline, a elenrar breach
of which It would be difficult to Imagine. The
American Government, It ndds. knows what
is duo to Itself and to tho other great nations
with whom it stands in ntnlcablo relations.
Continuing. It says:
" There have been times, and Iheso tlmos tiro
not yet romoto. when it Is moro than doubt
ful that such nu offence would havo been
visited with such punishment In those dnvs
It may bo surmised Hint tho brutality of some of
Capt CoghlanVrcmnrks would havo been over
looked by the Government nnd condoned hv tho
pilbllcnstheexcusablofrnnkness of ntter-din-neroratory.
The war and tho wldonnd solemn
responsibilities thnt have grown out of It
seem to havo siulilenly inlsed tho nation nnd
Its rulers ton truer and moro elovated con
ception of tho dlgnltv of their country.
"The struggle has biought them Into new
and closer relations with tho rot of tho great
lowers, and thoy have been quick to realize
that thoso relations will bo hebt and most hon
orably mnlntalnod by a scrupulous regard of
the dlctntes of International otluuetto
"This change of opinion seems to havo
spread Insensibly to nil classes and masses.
Thn eltlzons seem ready to condemn tlm
conduct of Capt. Coghlan to-day as sternly
as would tho people of any Luropenn

Mrs. Cranford. At 2 40 o'clock a chain which
held tho negio to a treo broke and fell Into the
llnmes. Tho fire wns put oat and the negro
chained ngaiu, Ho slorvly burned. Reforo
thu fire was tnrted both cars woro cut off and
he was otherwiso mutilated. At,'l:.r0 P. M.
Hose ceased his contortions and his head
dropped upon his Bhouldcr The crowd
clieried all liU writhing. Warning was given
for nono to shoot, but to let him die by de
grees. Whllo burning he confessed all the de
tails nnd said n negro named Llge Strickland
at Palmetto offered.hlni S20 to kill "Mr. Cran
ford. On th wny to the stake Ho.so was identified
positively by Mrs. McLlroy. Mrs. Crnnford's
mother, nnd also by Mrs. Crnnford's sister.
Hose was marched through tho streets ot
Nownnn followed by 2.500 people.
'This is a warning to all negroes, ' cried the
crowd He did not utter a cry, but several
blood vessels broke from the agony ot his tor
ture. Hundreds remained at the scene and
Nownnn was deserted this evening.
Hoso was first put In the Nownan Jail, and
the ciowd waited for Mrs. Crantoid, who Is In

Sheriff Rrown and the cantors of Hose, the
Jones brothers ot Marshallville. put their
heads close. to tho prisoner as they mnrched
"Ilojs. bo quiet If you shoot him you will
kill us We are going to tako this man to jail "
Thousands were packed about tlm jail, and
many women vvoie present, waving their
handkerchiefs and applauding the men who
mnde the capture. Nothing could hnve saved
Hose. A legltnent of soldiers would have
been powerless
Mrs. Cranford's arrival was awaited Impa
tiently. Sheriff Rrown had been Informed
that he must dollver Hose tothe crowd, nnd he
acceded to thoir demand to save a wholesale
loss ot life. The crowd blocked every street
near tho mil aud clamored for Hoso.
