passed through the grand
salon, where a buffet was spread, a'nd
tutored the conference chamber. In
which, before leaving, the Spaniards
would learn the attitude of the United
Slate* toward the Philippines.
Secretary Moore, upon the request of
Judiie Day, passed to Mr. Ferguson, the
Interpreter, the rormumieu nianun VI
the United States regarding -the Philippines
which were read to the Spaniards
in their own tongue by a rapid rendering
from the English in which they were
written. Although the Spanish commissioners
did not betray anxiety, their
attention to the reading was keen. They
had anticipated that the United States
would take over the islands, but the
terms and details of the transfer had all
along been a subject of speculation.
. *1fading disclosed the fact that the
Unite 1 States government had determined
to possess for Itself certain territory
and parts of land botindLby and
lying wlti'in sucb parallels of latitude
and longltuda.a|i mark the limits of the
Philippine tfrchlpjHat'o. The United
States do r&? purpose assuming the

menu, both physical and mental.
The reading of the presentment specifies
that the United States trill relmburst
Spain to the extent of her "pacific
expenditures" made in the archipelago.
This phrase "pacific expenditures" Is
employed to differentiate the expenditures
by Spain In combatting Insurrections
in the Philippines.
Such Is the vital portion of the presentment
made by the American commlsnioners
to-day, and it Is to bp observed
that while the main proposition
a* to possession and financial responsibility
Is clear and definite, many details
hove been left to the development of
the discussion between the two commissions.
"I'wlllc K*p?ndltnpp*.w
Thus, while the Spaniards are to-niRht
quite certnin that the United States intend
to reimburse them for "pacific expenditures,"
they remork that they are
not enlightened ns to whether the Americans
expect to indorse the Spanish obligations
to'tho extent of "pacific ex
pendlturcs" In the arcnipciaRo, or
whether they will hand Spain a sum of
fold largo enough to cover 8paln's outlay
so designated. Possibly the Amerlcan
commissioners themselves are no!
nt this moment fully determined on thlfl
point. It Ik unlikely, however, that tho
Americans will core to become Identltied
In the slightest degree with Spain
In her responsibility to her creditors.
Tho clearer method seoms to be to hand
to Spain some spot rash or somethlnfl
as good and to bid her apply It on her
debts by whatever name known, or to
put It* In her wallet for whatever use
she may elect.
While the TJhlted States have designated
"pacific expenditures" an those
they will reimburse to Spain, tho pro.
sentm^nt of the American commissionera
to-day did not demand either n
schedule or an Inventory of the sam<!
from tho Spaniards. RuU the suggesHon
naturally raises an Inquiry .is tc

Improvements, barracks and naval stations
are necessary to the United
States as the owner of the Philippines
and aro deemed worth a fair price.
Spain has also built some school
houses, which the Americans are willing
to take ever at cost.
The Spanish commissioners listened
attentively, though not without some
evidence of Impatience and surprise at (
the financial suggestion In the American
presentment, nnd finally asked un- ,
til Friday to consult the Madrid government
and make reply. I
How (lie SpaiilnriU Feel. ,
After the conference was dissolved,
the Spanish., commissioners expressed ,
the opinion <hat the American demand
would create In Spain as they had upon j
her commissioners, an exceedingly
grave ImprcsslQn. Were the Spanish ;
commissioners pushed to a final deter- 1
mlnatlon to-night they would reject the
American demands, but the changing j
tone of the Spanish preta recently ,
urges the consummation of a treaty of
peace, however rigorous, the argument ]
being that although the Spaniards bow ,
to the American demands, the commls- (
sloners do not acknowledge the justice
or admit the legality of them.
To-night the Spanish commissioners
feel that the United States, to all In- ,
tents and purposes have ?ot offered any
financial Inducements to Spain to cede
by treaty any part of the Philippines.
Had the American commissioners even '
offered to take over the entire Philippine
debt of about 540,000.000 the Spanlards
affect to feel that It would have ,
been as nothing, and they regard today's
position so meagre as not to warrant
even a schedule of Spain's "pacific
expenditures" In the archipelago.

MADRID, Oct. 31.?The new? that the
Spanish peace commissioners at Paris
had referred to the government a for- >
raal demand of the American"commissioners
for the absolute cession of the
entire Spanish group of the Phllipninps
cAimnd the createst surprise In
The strongest feeling prevails that
the government should protest energetically
against what Is regarded as a
violation of the spirit of the protocol.
For Annexation Canted President to Defer
Co ihni Runtlmenl.
WASHINGTON, D. C., Oct. 31.?The
advices from Paris to the effect that
the United States peace commissioners
frave-dettranded the cession to the United
States of the entire Philippine group
is in line with the instructions that
have been issued to the representatives
of the United States. Up to a very recent
date the United States commissioners
had no precise instructions on
this vital point. Of course before they
departed from Washington much consideration
had been given to this important
subject by the President, Secretary
Day, Assistant Secretary Moore
and the members of the commission.
But there was a lack of data as to the
financial and political afTairs of the
Philippines and ho it happened that
when the United States commissioners
sailed they wen* not committed beyond
change to nny line of policy.
But since that time the President has
becomo convinced that there 18 a ffreot
popular demand for the annexation to
the United States of the whole Philippine
(rroup, and he la disposed to defer
to that sentiment.
It cannot he learned definitely what
money consideration is to pass with tho
title to the Philippine*. Indeed there is
reason to believe that even the United
States peace commissioners havenotyet
been able to fix the amount exactly. Assuming
that they are to repudiate all
portions of the debt of the Islands which
does not represent money epent for actual
betterments, it will be seen at once
that the task passed to the commissioners
of differentia tins this debt is not
an easy one; particularly In view of the
notoriously loose financial methods of
the Spanish colonial authorities.. That
this debt should be assumed by the
United States In some proportion is
said at the state department to be Inevitable
If annexation Is to follow.
Quite unofficially, but in a manner to
carry conviction us 10 mc bwuimv ?*,
the Information, the Spanish commissioners
some days ago were allowed to
know what the United States purposes
as to the Philippines, once the conclusion
was arrived at. So they are not
taken completely by aurprlsft by tho
demand presented to-day at Paris.

have been hurriedly recalled from leave
of absence, several battleships and
cruisers at Portsmouth are taking their
full crew on board and other warlike
preparations ore being made. A number
of signal men, now on duty with
the British channel squadron, which arrived
at Gibraltar this morning, have

A sensation has been caused by the
arrest this morning of a supposed Russian
apy at Harwich. The* man was already
under Hsur veil lance and went to n
redoubt where he tried to obtain some
Information from a sentry regarding
the fortifications. He was promptly arrested
and inquiries are being mode regarding
his antecedents.
It was also asserted to-day that the
commanding officers of the London volunteer
regiments had received orders to
prepare for immediate mobilisation and
It was asserted that the different artillery
corps have been informed as to th?
forts on the southern and eastern coast*
to which they hove been allotted.

Morgan, a painter, made an unsuccesse
fui attempt to kill his wife at the Knoke
hotel, on Water street
? Morgan had not lived with his wife
li for some months, having _ been li'
Wheeling, Pittsburgh and other points
11 north, and on Friday he returns! to
a the city. They were together again sl*^
his return and seemed to get along all
a right until Sunday afternoon, when
n they commenced to quarrel, and they
n kept It up until this morning, when it
d culminated In the attempt on Mrs. Moro
gan's life.
c Morgan went into the room where she
e was working and after a few heated
e words he grabbed her, and made the attempt
to cut her throat with a small
- pen knife. Had not assistance arrived
g <here is not the least doubt but he
would have committed the deed, as the
" woman was unable to get away from
0 him. She received two cuta on the
' neck, one a mere scratch and the other
a pretty bad gash. The attending phys
slclan Is of the opinion that she will get
y along all right. Morgan has been arrest1
ed and will have a hearing in the
r. morning.

make a speech, the climax of which'was

report Mr. Hanna says:
"I am convinced that young men seeking
work of any kind should not come j
to Puerto Rico. Such persona as sleriu,
carpenters, mechanics and laborers of
all grades, should stay away. No :A
American should come here expecting". to .

without plenty of money to pay board \
