Aculnaldo's Flag la Flying Over the City American Troops Arrived too Late-The Situation Becoming Com. plicated. ' Washington, Dec. 29. There is a good deal of anxiety in official circle here over recent events at lloilo. Two P1?1 uispatcnes -nave oeen rece.veu by , the state and war departments but it is impossible to gaither from them an accurate knowledge as to the condition there. It is not even possi ble to learn whether the insurgents pr the American forces have taken the place. ' Wednesday morning United Staites Consul Pratt, at Singapore, ca bled the state department: "Lloilo taken 24tlh. Spanish fled to Borneo." This threw the officials into deeper doubt than before. , The American expedition which left Manila to go to Itoilo, 2.000 troop and the warships Baltimore and Callao, will scarcely have had time, it is said, to have reached lloilo by the 24th inet. So the inference is that the insurgents are in possession. Color is lent to this belief by the fact reported in one tel egram that the Spaniards had retreat ed to a strongly fortified town on tha island of Mindanao. Just before noon a dispatch came from Gen. Otis that at once confirmed the fears of the officials of the war department as to what (has taken place at lloilo. It appears that the American forces arrived too late on the scene and that the insurgents had added to the difficulty of the prob lems already presented by hoisting their flag over the city, which they have been besieging for months. The news was contained in the following message from Gen. Otis: "Sent Col. Potter on last vessel to lloilo on 24th to communicate with Spanish Gen. Rios; latter evacuated evening of 24th and Potter arrived 39 hours late; insurgents took posses sion of city on 26th, and Potter found Aguinaldo's flag flying. Cannot now report probable results; will not hear from there for four days, as no cable communications. Spanish forces have evacuated all stations in southern isl ands, except Zam'boanga, Mindanao by. orders, as they say, from Madrid." The evacuation by the Spaniards of all Philippine ports, as reported by Gen, Otis, although doubtless inspired by a desire to secure their safety toy concentration, undoubtedly has done much to complicate the problem al ready presented the war department of extending the military jurisdiction of the United States over the islands. It will now be necessary to expedite the execution of the original plana and it (may be fully expected that within a week important events will have happened in the Philippines. It is presumed that Gen. Otis will de mand the surrender of lloilo into his hands, and this demand may at once raise the issue between the insurgents and our own government of posses sion of the islands. .

Salt Lake, Utah, Dec. 29. The mys tery surrounding the shooting of ex Banker J. M. Stout two weeks ago, has nearly cleared up.

For TiVenty Years He Represented Hit Country at Washington Appendicitis tbe Cause of Death. : Washington, Dec, 31. Senor Don Mafias Romero, the Mexican ambas sador to the . United States, died at the embassy here Friday morning. On Wednesday last an operation for appendicitis was performed upon the ambassador and, although the opera tion was entirely successful, the re sulting shock proved greater than he could bear. Up to Thursday eyening it was thought that he was in a fair way to recover, but at that time a high fever set in and he sank rapidly until his death. Senor Romero was one of the most eminent statesmen and diplomats of Mexico. He was born in the city of Oaxaca, February 24, 1837. In 1855 he first entered the foreign office. In De cember, 1859, he came to Washington as first secretary of the Mexican le gation and remained here in that ca pacity -until August, 1860, yhen in the absence of the minister, he became charge d'affaires. He returned to Mexico in 1863 to take part in the war against the French and was ap pointed colonel by the president. Soon after that, President Juarez accredit ed him as envoy extraordinary and minister plenipotentiary to Washing ton. He remained at this post from October, 1863, until January, 1868, having rendered most Important serv ices to his country. On his return to Mexico he was ap pointed secretary of the treasury, but was obliged on account of ill health to give up that office in 1872. For three years he remained in Soconiusco, de Voting himself to agricultural pur suits, and from 1877 to 1878 was again secretary of the treasury. In 1880 he served as postmaster general. In March, 1882, he came back to Wash ington as envoy extraordinary Mid minister plenipotentiary, and has re mained in that capacity ever since, with' an interruption of only ten months, in 1892. when, for the third time he was called to serve as secre tary of the treasury. As representa tive of his country in the United States Senor Romero has shown him self a most efficient and able diplomat. Km efforts have been most successful in strengthening the friendly ties be tween the two nations and with this object in view he has written a great deal, his productions always receiving the highest econiums of the press of the United States and other countries. Senor Romero was a member of the International American conference and in that body served with great distinction, having been one of its two vice presidents. As representa tive, of Mexico in the conference he oted for the establishment of t the bureau or American republics ana ever since its organization has shown an active and zealous hitereat in its progress". He was a 'member of the executive committee of the bureau when that body was first organized, and 'on everV occasion has lent his valuable aid to the work of the inter national union of American republics, SEND GREETINGS.
