This morning the Intelligencer presents
a tabulation of the return* for
state senate and house of delegates,
which showB that the Republicans have
a majority of seven on joint ballot. Unless
there Is crooked work by the
Democrats of the house (where they

Republican to succeed Hon. Charles
James Faulkner in the United States
senate. The Republican majority in the
senate is eight, thus giving die seven
net on Joint ballot
It does not seem possible that the
Democrats of the house, evea if they are
dishonestly disposed, can find a number
of close contests sufficient to give
them the coveted majority on Joint
ballot There is only one really close
contest and that Is in Monroe, where
the Republican candidate, Mr. Via, has
five majority over his Democratic opponent

and it will be difficult for
even an unscrupulous political organisation
to unseat any of them. Outside
of Air. Via, the closest contests in
which Republicans were successful oocurred
in Roane coun ty, where Mr. Spencer
won on a majority of 104, and in
the Webster-Lewis delegate district,
where W. L. Dunnlngton has 16 majority
over the low Democrat, Talbott.

HONG KONG, Nov. 14.?The Filipino J
Junta, representatives of Genera! Aguin- i
aldo and the Filipino government, have '
drawn up what they designate as on
"appeal to President McKinley and the
American people," but what la la reaJ- 1
Ity in the nature of an arraignment of
American actions In the Philippines. |
John Barrett, former United States
minister to Siam, was asked by the
Junta to present the memorial to the
United States government and people. (
Mr. Barrett replied that, while he could
have no official influence regarding uie 1
status of the matter, he was satisfied ,
that a document which represented' the
sentiments of the Filipinos would re
celve at the hands of the Americans all i
the consideration It merited.
The memorial says: "We, the Hong
Kong representatives of our countrymen,
appeal to the great and good Judgment
of President McKlnley and the \
spirit of fairness and1 Justice of the ,
American people, as it is has always i
shown in their regard for the petitionsof
the weak and oppressed.
"While the fate of the islands is still
undecided, and we are doing all in our '
power to prevent a conflict between the '

implore the Intervention of
the President, supported by the will of
the people to end the slights shown our
leaders, soldiers and people by some of
the American military and naval officers,
although we do not wish to wrongAdmiral
Dewey or General Otis."
The memorial then avers that "faJse
reports are spread broadcast alleging
that the Filipinos are responsible for the
friction," point? out fhat "the tension Is
greater every day, and any moment a
shot may be fired by an irresponsible
American- soldier or Filipino, leading to
great bloodshed," and beseeches the
United States to "help the Junta to control
our own people by directing American
officials at Manila to 'temper their
actions with friendship, justice and fairness."
"TTrnm rh# commencement of the ho*- 1
tilities," continue# the memorial, "tie
Filipinos acceded to all the American 1
requests; but, after bottling up the ]
Spaniards In Manila, the Filipinos were
completely Ignored when the Americana i
advanced, and thus deprived of the
fruits of victory. Now, after months of \
campaigning, the Filipino troops have \
been ordered beyond the suburbs, Where i
they have no quarters, and where sup- \
piles are difficult to Obtain. All our
launches have been seized" because of j
foolish rumors rhat we wnuld attack ,
the Americans, and when we asked explanations

Americana, and were uniformly recognized

"We can only attribute this sudden ;
change to orders from Washington to .
American officials at Manila to avoid ,
compromising the American government
by a recognition of the Filipinos or their
government. The Americans are carrying
out these Instructions literally, lo?ing
eight of the former friendly Inter- ,
course and assistance, and of the ??- '
urances the American officials guv? ;
General Aguinaldo, vVhloto he communlcated
to his followers."
After emphasizing the junta's "abso- '
lute confidence In President McKlnlay 1
and the people of the great republic,"
stating that "our protests are not
prompted by animosity, but are directed ,
against conditions existing at Manila, ,
and not against !ho American govorn"

the memorial concluded thus:

HAVANA, NOV. 13, via ivisx naoi,
FJa., Nov. 14.)?The mutiny of the orden
publico foroe# which for two days
threatened tlie peace of this city has
resulted In the dissolution of that body
to-day when, after the payment of some
arrears and the promise of a full liquidation,
the revolting troops laid
down their arms. Captain General
Blanco then ordered ail the foot and
mounted regiments of the orden publico
to be disbanded, that organization ceasing
to exist from this date.
As originally planned, it was Intended
that the? mutiny should have extended
to the gardla civil and the artillery
regulars and to would in that event
have assumed much graver importance
md might perhaps have inaugurated a
reign of terror and bloodshed in the island.
For some time post the uprising of

receipt of their pay has been feared.
Not only Is their pay owing for month?
and In some cases for years, but the reserve
pay of the soldiers, t!Telr savings
since the date of their enlistment, which
were looked upon by them as sacred,
have been appropriated or stolen as the
men sa*\ by Government which now
turns a deaf ear to their protests.
What amount this reserve pay reaches
U is impossible to estimate, but it Is
known It aggregates millions. This is
what has been precipitating- riots, causing
mutiny here, impelling the men to
Insubordination at Neuvltaa and which
may yet give rise to further widespread
Jisturbanoes in the island.
The Havana mutiny, which was started
yesterday was precipitated by General
Arolas, the military governor of
the city, whose fiery temper and brutal
treatment of officers is the source or
daily spreading discontent. At midnight
on- Wednesday, Genera! Arolas, at
the head of a battalion of regular Infantry,
having been apprised of the intention
of the troops to join In the mutiny
and demand their pay, surprised
the artillery outposts stationed along
the Vedado road, Including the Santa
Clara and Reina Chorrera. batteries,
disarmed them and placed them under
ATPlaj* Fiery Temper.
The next morning (Thursday) the
third company of the ordeu publico,
numbering about 150 men, drew up before
the captain general's palace, In the
Plaza de Armas, and demanded their
averdue pay. The men were ordered to
retire but refused. General Arolas, who
arrived on the scene almost simultaneously
in an excess of rage, lifted his
baton of office and savagely attacked
lome of the onlookers, seriously hurting
a. government employe who had rushed
out ol Ihe palace from curiosity.
By this time the Plaza de Armas was
filled with wildly excited crowds, who
loudly condemned and cursed General
At that period of the excitement the
orden publico with fixed bayonets, assumed
an attitude of deep hostility towards
General Arolas, whom the men
considered responsible for the disgraceful
war In which they had been treated.
That moment General Solano, Captain
General Blanco's chief of staff, appeared
at the palace door and commanded
the attention of the men. He addressed
them In conciliatory tone, upbraided
t>hem for their Insubordination and con3emned
the 111-advlsed course they were
Then placing himself at their head.
General Solano himself marched the
men back to their quarters where he
ugaln addressed them, promising them
they would be paid Thursday. The day
passed without any further Incident until

tairned that General Arolas toad called

Believing thai General Arolas meant to

loft their quarters, each man with 150
rounds of ammunition In his belt, and
lined up tn the street opposite the armory
ready to offer reilsfcanoe, If necessary.

General Arolos, mad with rage, ordered

calling the officers aside and conferring

This uprising affords a palpable illustration

Although the possibility of further
uprisings Is scouted among the military
authorities, there Is reason to believe
that trouble Is anticipated among the

regular forces, as proved by the fact
that the troops continued to b? oonflned

refused to touch the paper unless first

Peace Negotiation!?Joint S?Mlon of Commlaatoners
Deferred Until Wednesday
Spain's Representatives Preparing Pinal
Reply to Amerlean Demands*
PARIS, Nor. 31.?It has been decided
that there will oe no jomi session? on
the peace commislons to-day.
Secretory Moore, of the United States
commission, received from Secretary
OJeda, of the Spanish commission, this
morning', a note saving that the Spanish
commissioners had found it Impossible
to prepare their memorandum for
presentation to-day, and asking If the
United States commissioners would be
Inconvenienced If, owing to the late arrival
from Madrid of expected data, the
Spaniards should request that the next
meeting be deferred until Wednesday.
Secretary Moore replied that American
commissioners were quue reaoy xo accommodate
the Spanish commissioners
in this matter, and the Joint session was
practloally deferred until Ws#nesday
Importance is attached to this delay,
it being regarded as indicating that tho
Spanish commissioners are preparing
for a final stand in these negotiations
and it may now be definitely stated that
)the?r will not sign a treaty of peace
which yields to Spain no more from
the Philippine Islands than has thus
far boen offered or Indicated by the
Americans. Should the latter announce
that the United States Is only witling
to reimburse Spain for her pnclflc expenditures
In the Philippine islands, the
Spanish commissioner* will reply that
their mission is finished. Should this
occur, it is possible that the Spaniards
will also suggest a suspension of the
negotiation through the commission
and the resumption of negotiations be
twoeli ai.i'inu miu
This attitude of the Spaniards Is explained
by the fact that the members
of the Spanish commission- have political
alliances and personal responsibilities
tu constituencies and the national creditors
of Spain which restrict them to
certain lines, which are .18 far as the
ministry at Madrid cares to go. It is
pointed out that If the five Spanish
commissioners here sinned a treaty
yielding the Philippine islands to the
United States without lessening Spain's
debt In an appreciable degree, they
could not return homo with the prospeot
of any political future before ttoero
and possibly would be In danger of violence
at the hands of mobs.
At the next meeting of the commissions
the Americans will learn the definite
attitude of Spain on any proposition
thus far made. The Spaniards,
howevor. In this presentation will noi
declare all negotiations closed. They
will Insist, that the sovereignty of Spain
over the Philippine Islands <s beyond
question, but will announce Spain's
readiness to yield that sovereignty for
un adequate equivalent and will then Invite
negotiations under the Spanish
construction of the- protocol. The Amor
lean commissioners may then communicate
tbelr anal attitude to the Spanfards.but
the Americana ore expected (
a future meeting, to present a carefully
prepared conclusion of their contention
and condition*. Should tber be no different
from those already presented the
lime will then have arrived when Spain
will declare herself helpless, though
steadfast and will await the next step
or the United states, whatever It may
be. Thus Spain will be able to say
to her creditors that she has done her
utmost and that the issue must rest between
them and the United States.
A dispatch to the Temps from Madrid
says the official* there do not believe
the peace negotiations wtll be broken
off. It adds: "If the United
States persist In their present claims,
Spain will accept the conditions after
formally announcing at a session of the
fwnm<iil)UMi and (n n ( Inrnlnr1 In th#
powers that she Intends to yield to force

WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. 14.-Th?
Washington Post will any to-morrow
that the war tax will not be abolished
at the coming short session of Congress
and that there will bo no revision of Aha
tariff whatever. It bases this announcement
upon tie positive statement made
to-day by Chairman Dingley, of the
wa?s and means committee, who in an
interview, gaysn
"The government will need for some
time all the revenue produced by the
war taxes. During the month of October
the war expenditures exceeded the
war revenue by some $14,000,000 and thla
month they will be $10,000,000 in excess.
This being the case, there will be no
changes at least this fiscal year. The
war revenue act will continue In force
and unchanged except perhaps in a few
minor administrative features for at
least a year longer.
"It Is hardly necessary to add,"
continued Mr. Dingley, "that there will
be no revision of the tariff, although I
have Been some statement to the effect
that such a revision Is contemplated.
"The session Is limited to three
months," he said, "and that short period
will be mainly occupied In (luilnc
the appropriation bills, in enacting new
laws for the regular army and In deciding
upon the legislation necessary for
the government of Hawaii. In addition
to these Important matters, the usual
number of routine matters will arise.
From the present outlook, the session
will be well under way before the treaty,.
or peace vvmi spam ?m uc wu uctvm
the senate and the ratification of that
document may not be accomplished
long before the? fourth of March arrives."
"Will that necessitate an extra session?"
"It Is. of course, Impossible," said
Mr. Dingley, "to know what will arise
between the first of December and the
fourth of next March, but so f&r as the
present outlook can form a basis for
Judgment, I should say that no extra
session will be necessary or desirable*
unless some new question should arise.
In the first place we shall not know until
the treaty of peace has been ratified
what new possessions we are to hava
and what legislation Is nccessary for
them, mid even men we win dc m uv
position to net intelligently-. I think
that the military administration dught
to be continued for at leant a year longer.
Military administration- means the
maintenance of order,'the establishment
of sanitary regulations, the giving
of assistance to those who may
|n<ee<I it. It will bring order out ot
chaos ar.d afford us time to determine
the wisest legislation. Time always enlightens
and certainly when Congress
meets at its regular sessioa in December
of next r^ar we will bo much better
equipped to consider the proper
method of dealing with our new possessions."
"For my part," added Mr. Dlngley,
hope that the territory to bo udded will
be no larger than is absolutely necessary.
I realize that in some cases It
may be easier to hold than It will be to
i?t an hivt at thr? same time I hone that
the treaty when it is presented to the
senate, will provide for the acquisition
of a minlimim amount of territory."
