Lawmakers at "Washington Plnn to

WASHINGTON, Feb. 21. The appll.

sections is sought.

Ageat Declares That Couatry Will Not Compromise.
PARIS. Ft-b. 21. M. Zoltovltz, the
Bulgarian agent in Paris, made the fol
lowing statement today:
"I can give the most formal assur
ances that Bulgaria has more than over
resolved to do nothing to compromise
the peace. It Is with great satisfaction
we have seen Hie powers elaborate a
plan for reforms In Macedonia, and we
wish, without any reservation, the
form rcallzcd.
"Above all, at this moment when the
powers arc following with anxiety the
events In the far East, Bulgaria will
avoid doing anything that would cause
the belief that f.hp proposes to profit by
the crlsiy. The Bulgarinn people have
unanimously expressed warm symputhy
for Russia.
"It Ip jinfortunnte that Turkey per
sists in lirr regret table hostility. Be
sides the annoying measures she has
taken agolnst our people, our commerce
suffers serious obstacles; and, finally,
the continued concentration of Turkish
troops along our frontier and the mobili
zation of troops at strategic points la
menacing uh."
M. EoltoVitz said there is a war party
in Constantinople which has a prepon
derlng inlluence and quoted from Con
sular reports to the effect that the Turks
fear a military insurrection If war with
Bulgaria is not declared.
"In the light of thepe facls." M. Zolto
'Jltz concluded, "it Is natural that Bul
garia, too. nhould bo preparing."
ft Is understood the powers are con
sidering simultaneous representations
to Constantinople and Sofia to compel
a limitation to armament.
The Turkish embassy is authorized to
state categorically that the Ottoman
Government has not given any orders
for the mobilization of troops.

4 other printed matter. , 4
4 Under the new policy a number of papers containing questionable 4

of 400 marines and bluejackets from tho

They dislodged the Insurgents from
their positions and chased them Into the

marines and bluejackets look ayaln to
their boats and returned to their ships.
One man. a bugler named Painter,

zealously protected In casea of trouble
between the regular Government and
the Insurgents. Forcible interference in
the affairs of the country, however,
have been avoided up to this time, so
far as news received by the department
is concerned.
Tt Is authoritatively stated that the
question of the annexation of San Do
mingo to the United States has never
received the slightest consideration on
the part of the United States, and
moreover the Administration Is unable
to take a position or adopt a policy
other than the protection of American
Interests In San Domingo, because of
the absence of satisfactory Information
as to conditions there.
