ANOTHER APPEAL !
From General Luna i'or a Cessation
of Hostilities ? The Conference is ,
Without. Result.
MANILA. May 2.?Major Manuel Arguelles
and Lieutenant Jose Bernal, of (
the staff of General Antonio Luna, re- ,
turned here to-day to renew and press ,
the request of General Luna for a ces- j
satlon of hostilities. They have found ,
the field of labor a most uncongenial .
one. The t;vo officers were received in i
conference by Major General E. S. Otis. I
The proposals which they had to submit j
differed but slightly from those which i
they brought from the Filipino com- 1
mander in the first place. They desired j
a little time In which to summon congress
and expressed themselves as be- 1
Jny cojjfld.'ju that the congress will de- j
crce peace, because the people desire
it. They represent tha Ajjulnaldo is j:
without power to surrender the army (
and that the congress must decide that. (
Question. Incidentally. th*? Filipino en- ?
voys asserted tha; Agulnaldo had not i
yet made a fair test of hlr. strength ?
acalnst the American forces, because i
only one-third of hU> army had been as- i
eembled together.
The envoys presented a letter from
S*:.cr Mabini. president and minister of
foreign affairs In the cabinet,of Aguiivalilo.
and who it? the backbone of (he
FJPplno organization. The communication
is personal and unofllcla!. and
seconds Major Arguclles arguments.
Th-i envoys will see General )tl? again
to-morrow. They will sleep to-night in
Manilf. They lunched with General
MicArthur at his headquarters on a
car of the armored-train at Calumpl*.,
before comlns to Manila.
Whether or not General Luna is sincere
in his overtures, the negotiations
are Hiving the Insurgents a much needed
opportunity to rehabilitate their do- ,
moralized forces. The truth lt> that dis (
tensions among the leaders of the rebels
is helping on the disorganisation
of the Filipino army almost as much a3 ]
the American campaign. ,
n; mv course or tne conrerence wun i,
the Filipino envoys Genera'. Otis agreed
with the statement of Major Arguellew ,
that the people of the Philippine islands
wanted peace and he added that i
requests for protection art* pouring In
upon him from all parts of the country.
MANILA, May 3. r.oon.?Tin* second
conference h?-ld this morning between
Major Genera! Otis and the Filipino
emissaries. Colonel Manuel Arguelles

without any definite results.

LONDON, May 2.?Representatives of
the Philippine Junta say they have received
a telegram from Aguinaldo dated
April 20, in which he states that his
government has nothing to do with the
present peace negotiations which he
asserts are being conducted by a

are anxious for pence In the expectation '
of K'-ttir.g high offices under a new
government.

\ COMPILED BY RM. ATKINSON I
h v
Jj
Calculated to Incite American s<
Soldiers to Mutiny and a
t. Foment Insurrection.
' c
t WASHINGTON, May 2.?The three e
n anti-Imperialist pamphlets, copies of
which have Jjeen prohibited In the malls p
ft for the Philippines, are those which ri
s have the following titles: "Criminal t
{ Aggression by Whom?" "The Cost of a a
n National Crime," and "The Hell of War y
and Its Penalties." a
s These, unless something should de- a
- velop to necessitate a further uctlon,
" mny be circulated through the malls p
1 within this country. According to Mr. p
e Atkinson's own statement, a large num- ^
V ber of pamphlets have been sent out. q
* The matter was brought to the attention j
of the postal officials by the war de- ]j
k partment, whose authorities were B
- greatly exercised with a suggestion ,
s that some action be taken. It Is thought
a that there Is little possibility of any of
o these publications getting pust the San
Lj Francisco office, but If a few should, B
r the military authorities In the Philipr.
pines will promptly suppress them. R
n Postmast'er General Charles Emory ..
0 Smith made this statement to the Asso.
elated Press to-day: "These pamphlets g
actually Incite to mutiny, and It would n
^ be utterly unjustifiable to permit their .
. circulation among the soldiers In the
g Philippines. Their rlrculatlon Is a "
movement to Induce the soldiers to dlso- t
1 bey orders and In effect to embarrass ^
and resist the government, In whose _
service they are engaged. Their clrculatlon,
except In the malls for the U
Philippines, Is not Interfered with, be- t
o cause In being sent to Manila they are j
destined for soldiers who are fighting
our battles, but in this country the ef- 0
fort to Incite to mutiny could have no
- results.
Not only are they designed to incite S
to mutiny the American soldiers In
those Islands, but also to foment and
r encourage Insurrection on the part of
d the Filipinos themselves. Such sedle
tlous literature ac that now stopped
Ll might have an effect on the force:: we
1. are now dealing with that wouM be lni
calculably to their advantage, and
o certainly would tend to stimulate and
h strengthen their already weakening opi
position. The law covering the case
1. Is ample. What' aetlon might be tap
ken?and the offense Is of the gravest
if character?Is not to be discussed. I
t do not believe there Is any Intention to ?
0 prosecute Mr. Atkinson as the matter t
now stands. The authority to do so is s
t plain. He not only attacks the President
and the government In the most
a virulent lanKuaK'-' and disputes the na- c
r tlonal poll-}*, but also calls on the ^
y American troops to defy the govern=
t inent. Certainly this government Is ?
t empowered to stop or check, as It sees
n lit, the circulation of these seditious '
d publications." *

"""ATKINSON'S EXPLANATION *
Is Very Weak?Doesn't Realize Wlmt '
lie has Done.
.. BOSTON, May 2.?Hon. Edward Atjj
kinson, vice-president of the Anti-Imperialist
League, of this city, was ^
shown the Washington dispatch stating
e that the postmaster general had dlructn
ed that certain pamphlets prepared bzy '
^ Mr. Atkinson be taken from the malls "
1 to Manila. Mr. Atkinson Bald he had 1
~ received no notification from Washing- c
ton about the matter. lie explained that n
the documents were compilations of c
Hulf wns unjustly sectlonnl. Why v
nhould lynching* In the south be spec- 1?
tally condemned and those in Ohio and C
H Indiana go unmentloned? Hut the n
d third reason wns, In his mind, the must 1;
n important of all. 1
o "With nil due solemnity," Mr. Carllle 1
said, "I say here that under certain
B conditions lynching }? Justifiable. I o
l? would not condemn others for what I ii
s would do myself. The late Southern <n
lynchings are to he deplored, hut under <,
nlrnllar circumstances, 1 would cheer- 0
fully pull the rope that would send the
murderer and ruvlsher Into eternity."
Mr. Cnrllte's words dropped like a
r thunderbolt upon the presbytery and
the members stared at each oth?-r in t
amazement. ?
Later In the dlseuHslon Mr. Carille anr
nouneed that what he had said hail 11
o b(M.'J) said In cool blood and he stood by (
e it. Considering the slow operation of 4'
v tlio law In many southern states and I
the iioccuulty, of protection from law- ?i
uurgn presDyiery. .
lie characterized the paper of Dr. 1
Johnston as "cheap buncombe." Ho J
,m would oppoae the adoption cf tlio paper (i
for throe reasons. The first was that It
r was calculated to aggravate sectional
feeling. The second, that the paper It
racts ana uguros taKcn from the <ien
bates In the national house anil senate, i
e and calling attention to points over- $
ll 166ked In debate. s
l" "By action of the senate," Mr. Atkln- 3
e son continued, "these compilations were v
>? published as senate documents, and c
i- they are now public documents of the .
United States. Therefore any action
taken towards keeping them out of the c
malls would Imply that congressional r
!- records and otllctnl documents ?f the ,
United States are unsuitable to be sent v
to olllcors of the volunteer regiments t
now In Manila whose terms of service
8 have expired, and whose return to this u
!" country Is demanded by olllclals of cer- I
tain states who say the men are entitled t
e to discharge." f
y Mr. Atkinson said he had sent copies f
l" of there documents to Admiral Dewey, t
s President Schurmann, Prof. "NVorces- J
" ter, General Otis, General Lawton, a
General Miller and two copies to the o
J- correspondent of a New York llluatrat- c

received from the powers to
, cease hostilities makes the situation In
the Islands very serious, as the rebels
hold the main food supplies and arc
again near the municipality of Apia.
The correspondent of Router's news

the situation in Samoa. The Germans
and rebels are already Jubilant, and
, claim a victor** over the British and
American forces.
The correspondent says that unless
the rebels aro mad** to eubmlt tho
culries will remain unsolved. The white
people in the outskirts of the city are
at the mercy of the rebels. The American
vice consul's store at FalKa was
looted last week, while a German store
adjoining It was left untouched. British
and American residents all strongly
condemn the action of the powers In ordering
a cessation of hostilities at this
stage.
Two days after the last battle at
Vaillma Lieutenant R. A. Gaunt, of the
British cruiser Porpoise, marched his
brigade Into Vaillma unopposed, and
was followed by a company of British
blue Jackets under Captain Sturdeeanc1
Lieutenant Governor Cave. Inspection
of the battlefield shows that the defences
erected by the rebels near the

NO UNDUE RESTRAINT
Imposed on Admiral Kautz, in Regard
to Operations in Samoa.
WASHINGTON, May 2.?It Is denied
. officially here that any undue restraint
j has been Imposed upon Admiral Kautz
3 which would encourage the insurgents
. in Samoa. On the contrary, Admiral
i Kautz has been advised that the Preslr
dent supports him in all that he has
done; that he is entirely satisfied with
his conduct and the only Injunction laid
" upon the admiral has been to avoid un1
necessary slaughter and bloodshed.
This injunction Is not understood to
1 restrain the officer in any way from
L such military and naval operations as
in his opinion are necessary to protect
fully the Interests of the United States,
Great Britain and German residents in
Samoa, for it Js expressly understood
I that Admiral Kautz Is present simply
for the purpose of carrying out the
. treaty obligations us ty the interests of
the citizens of the tripartite agreement
and not as a representative of any one
power.
I So far no advices have come to either
, the state or navy department as to
' the date of these last press dispatches,
L hence it is assumed that no events of
very great importance have occurred
. warranting the sending of a cablegram
by Admiral Kautz or Consul Osborn.
