WAHrtiNOTON, July 0. In a telegram received
nt thu War Department to-dny Mnjor-Gcn.
Otis said that ho had secured 1,000 men for
tlie two roglmonts of volunteurs which ho Is
organizing In tho Philippines. These regi
ments are to bo organized in skeleton formation
nnd tlioir ranks filled by recruits from tho
United States. About 1,(100 recruits nro
needed to complete the formation of both regi
ments. It was tho Intention of tho War De
partment to send tho first volunteers secured
In this country to llll up tho ranks of the
regiments organized by Oen. Otis, but It ts
now likely that tho skeleton commands will be
completed by men specially onllstod for that
purpose, thus not Interfering with iccrult
Ing tho ten othor volunteer regiments to

thirds of whom will bo regulars. Tho men who
have decided to enlist In tho skeleton regi

to the placo of original enlistment in tho
United titates, amounting to about St50 In

who have ro-enllsted In the 1'hllinplnes be

The enlistment ol men for the ten now vol

MriHTRKii. Quebec. July 0 Both Chief
Wilkie. of the United Stntes Secret Sorvlco.
and Detectlvo Kcllert, of Montreal, glvo nn
absolute denial to the sworn stntument mnde
by George F. Dell, that he stole tho letter be
longing to Lieut. Carranza, the Spanish Naval
Attache, nnd that a forged lettor was sent out
by the United Stntes 8ecrt Service
Kcllurt tells an entirely different story of how
Cnrrnnza's letter wns. obtained, Kcllert says
tho Carranza lotter was stolen by ilalph lled
fern. now chief of the United Statos Secret
Service at lloston, who visited tho house on
Tupper strcot occupiod by tho Spaniards, lled
fern found a lottor on Carranza's tablo which
he appropriated. The lettor was In an envelope
and sealed. Redfern went at once to the United
States Consulate and turned the letter over to
Consul-Oenernl llltilnger, who Immediately
sent It to Washington. Kellort snys that
although he was arrested forsteallng tho letter
ho kept lledfem's seerot up to tho present.
Kellert's story Is corroborated by Consul-General
Tho Spanish representatives nre expected to
take some action. In view of Hull's statement.
Seflnr Hypollo de I'nnrte. Consul-Oennral,
made the following stntement to-dny: "I havo
forwnrdod a copy of Bell's confession to Madrid,
nnd will nwnlt Instructions before proceeding to
lnko ony steps. Tho matter Is n very delicate
one. and ns I am n stranger to the situation,
not having been in Canada at the time. I shall
not net officially in tho matter until I receive
word from my Government. I shall gather
what facts I can and bo prepared to go ahead.
I suppose If there Is any truth In the confes
sion of Hull thnSpnnlHli Minister at Washing
ton will communicate with me. Seflor Car
ranza was ordered from hre upon the docu
ments submitted bv tho Wilted States Gov
ernment, nnd now, if these doeuments nre
proved forgeries. Carranza should be set right."
