■tores are open, there are still many prom inent merchants who have not yet resumed operations, apparently hesitating until the future of the city and Islands has been definitely determined. The herculean task of restoring order from the choas due to the shlftl«>sness of the Spaniards ts slowly but surely being accomplished by the American officers de tailed to undertake lt. The brunt of the dirty work ls borne by Brigadier Oeneral Mac Arthur, whose duties as military com mandant and provost marshal general of Manila are as multitudinous and far reaching as those of the übiquitous Koko ln "Tha Mikado." The appointment of Colonels J. S. Smith of the First California and S. Overs* hi n» of the Third U. S. V. as his deputy provost marshals for the districts north and south of the Pasig river relieves him very mate rially of outside work, but it still leaves him work enough for a dozen men in the city proper. Brigadier Oeneral F. V. Greene, who has charge of all fiscal affairs of the local gov ernment, and Lieutenant Colonel C. A. Whlttler, the new collector of cus-toms. have thflr hands full, but Brigadier Gen eral Anderson, who has been assigned to the district of Cavite, seems to havo been shelved. Despite the lack of any definite knowl edge of the future of the Philippines, bus iness Is decidedly brisk in Manila at pres ent, ar.d there !s every Indication of the approach of a boom. The fact that every thing has been practically tled-up for the past three months necessarily occasions an immense amount of extra work now that tho embargo has beer, removed, but apart from this the advent of the American administration of affairs and the prospect of its being prolonged Indefinitely have lent an impetus to trade which nothing else could have given it. Clearing the Channel Or.c of the first official acts of the new administration was to clear the channel at the mouth of the river l'uslg of the obstructions placed there by the Spaniards, thereby reopening the port of Manila for commerce. Immediately after this had been done the fleet of intcrlslar.d steamers, which, by an arrangement with Admiral Dewey, had been anchored out in the har bor and used a3 refugee ships by the va rious consulates, returned to their berths at the river qttnys, and, after discharging their passengers, proceeded to refit for their former occupations, pending the de cision of the prize court as to their ulti mate fate. This has caused an enormous amount of traffic along the water front, and both the custom house and captains of the port offices have been deluged for the past ten days. In accordance with the requirements of International law, no change has as yet been made ln the customs regulations, hence the tariff in force before the war is still maintained, and the coffers of the treasury are being replenished very mate rially. It was naturally expected that under the new regime- the import duties would be considerably reduced, and many merchants laid their plans accordingly, but, in spite of exhorbltant duties, the demand so far exceeds the supply that the merchants are only too glad to gc-t their good* through as fast as they arrive. Several Americans have already announced their Intention of embarking in business here, and an Ameri can newspaper is among the possibilities In the near future. Cable Communication The reopening of the cable to Hong Kong Bnd the resumption of trnttic along the lnter-lsland telegraph lines have placed the merchants once more In direct com munication with their agents, but up to the present little news has been received, the small force employed in the local olllce having been Inadequate to handle tho vol ume of outgoing messages tiled everyday. It was, however, learned today that Senor Don Diego de los Rlos y N'tcolau, tho pro vincial governor of Hollo, has issued a proclamation declaring himself governor general of the Islands, ln accordance with Instructions from his government, and that the seat of the Hpunish government hud been established at Hollo. Aguinaldo for Sale Agulnaldo has Informed Governor Oen eral Merrltt that In the event of the I'nited States' holding the Philippines perma nently, nr. at least, formally declaring a protectorate over them, his follow,-rs would lay down their arms; but until that time lt would not be safe for him to do so. While all this 13 very plausible. It is the consensus of opinion among the English-speaking merchants and residents here that tho rebels, and especially Emillo Agulnaldo, are only holding out In ordt r to be bought off. The fact that one of Agulnaldo's lieu tenants Is authority for the statement that an agreement had been made with the American officials, by ths terms of which Agulnaldo was to he made governor of a province and each of his officers to be giv en minor positions, provided his troops lay down their arms, would tend to show that this opinion has sum,' basis, particular ly when Gen. Merrltt, upon learning of this statement, Bald emphatically that "no agreement whatever had been made with Agulnaldo upon uny subject." Merritt's Departure The department of Governor Oeneral Merrltt and his staff for Paris today ef fectually disposes of further negotiations with the Insurrectionists for the present, whatever Inducements may have been held out to them secretly, for It Is hardly to lie supposed thul so delicate a duty would be delegated by Merrltt to his deputy. It is significant that, coincident with tho departure of Major Qen. Merrltt for Pat-is, the rebels should have spread the report that three of Agulnaldo's trusted lieuten ants have already left for Washington, with the nvowe.l Intention of reaching the American capital ahead of Brig, Qen. Greene, who is scheduled to leave today on board the China. It Is certain the insurrectos held secret meetings In various parts of the city yes terday tor the purpose of determining their future plan of campaign, and thai the re sult of thetlr deliberations was carefully Withheld from publication. The ecclesiastical party has apparently ooncluded to accept the inevitable with the best grnc possible under the circum stances. At tiny r: te, neither the nrch blflhop nor any ot his satellites has made the slightest attempt tn Interfere with the policy adopted by the new administra tion so far. and. unless all signs fail, no such attempt w ill he made. Arrival of Transports The transports Peru and City of Pueblo, with Major Gen. v.. s. Otis and Prig. Gen, Hughes from Ran Francisco, arrived here August 21st. The til], from lion,.lulu was made In 18 dnys, the fastest yet made by any of the c xpeditions. Six onsen of measles nnd two of typhoid fever developed aboard the pern after leaving Honolulu.

Greene to Go East WASHINGTON, Seipt. 22.-Gen. F. V. Greene, who arrived In San Francisco to day from Manila, Informs the war depart ment that be expects to come east Immedi ately, arriving ln Washington next Tues day. Waiting for Orders SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. t!2.—As yet, no orders have been received assigning Gen. Miiler to the command of the expedition ary forces that will sail shortly to Manila. However, It Is concluded thnt he will be In command, and Instructions to that effect are momentarily expected. No date can be fixed for the departure of the troops, ns this ls a matter dependent upon when the troopships can be obtained. A dispatch was received at army hcad ouarters this afternoon, ordering Gen. King and detachments now at Honolulu to proceed to Manila. The transport Arizona is due at Manila next Saturday and will return to Honolulu Immediately. A pro vision ship Will be sent from here to Hono lulu to provide for the troops on tho Ari zona. The Orders Arrive SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 22.—General M. C. Miller, now in command of tho Presidio troops, is to sturt for the Philippines some time next month, probably in the Indiana. Instructions to thnt effect were received by Genenal Menrlam today. General Merriam was also Informed by the war department that the steamer China would not be used as a transport to carry additional troops to Manila, because the government agreed to return her to the Pacific Mail company. On this account the steamers Senator and Indiana will probably be the first transports to take more troops from here to the Philippines. The Senator left Manila on August 24th last and the Indiana on September Ist bound for San Francisco. They are expected hero any day. CAVITE ArFAIRS Utah Soldiers Blamed for the Shooting Affray CAVITE, P. 1., Aug. 80.—Gen. Anderson appointed on August 20th a board of three officers, with Capt. Brldgeman, Sixth V. S artillery, as chairman, to Investigate the recent shooting at Cavite. Their re port has since been rendered unfavorable to tho conduct of the Ttah soldiers. All the officers are outspoken In blaming our soldiers for the shotting. The four insurgent soldiers implicated in the shooting were court-martialed by an insurgent board of officers yesterday at Cavite. Three were acquitted on the ground of self-defense and one was found guilty und will be sentenced to be shot upon the procee-dings of tho court being approved by Gen. Agulnaldo. An invitation was extended to Gen. An derson und the othe-r officers stationed) at Cavite to be present at the trial of the prisoners. Gen. Anders an will ask that the man be not shut, as lie place's the blame upon (he Utah soldiers. Gen. Merrltt has requested Gen. Rio.-, who Is commanding Insurgent general at Cavite, to withdraw all of his troops fnom Cavite. He has replied, asking time to consult with Gen. Agulnaldo. Several nights last wick a noise was heard coming from the direction of the wrecks of the former Spanish warships that lie In close, to the shore. I in the night of August 28th a detachment of Montana volunteers was sent in a boat to investi gate and drive away any one from the wrecks. Upon seeing a couple of small boats tic] to the wrecked vessels th«- troops e-ailed for any one concealed Insido to come out and upon receiving no response they fired Into the cabins, which are large ly above the water line, and returned with the small bouts. The following mornln.T four natives were taken prisoners, one. be ing dangerously wounded, antl the dead body eif another native, who had been shot the night previous, was found on the boat. The Convict Escaped SAN' RAFAEL, Stpt. 22.—Alton Could, tbe convict who escaped from San Quon tin last Sunday night, is row believed to have eluded the prison officials ard t'J be hldlrg In San Francisco. Tuesday even ing a man footsore and weary applied nt the ranch of John chris-ty for fond. He answered the description of Gould, was without either vest or coat, and carried a hurdle under his arm. Christy fed the stranger, who seemed to be nervous and kept watching the door. The following morning a large boat belonging to Christy was mltllnf from Its mooring, and lt is thought that Gould used it for crossing the bay. All at Manila FAN- FRANCISCO, Sept. 82.—The trans ports Para. Newport, Valencia. Rio d*j Janeiro, Ohio, Morgan city and Pennsyl vania were all In Manila when the China left.

LOS ANGELES HERALD) FRIDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 23, 1898 EVERY DOG HAS HIS DAY CUSTOMS OF SANTIAGO PROVIDE AN ANNUAL REVENUE OF TWO MILLIONS THE CURRENCY QUESTION Will Make It Necessary to Collect All Duties in United States Gold Coin Associated Press Special Wire. SANTIAGO DE CUBA, Sept. 22.—8y the courtesy of General Lawton the Associated Press correspondent was today afforded an opportunity to peruse the report issued by Customs Collector Donaldson, covering the transactions of the custom house at San tiago during the period between July 16th and September Ist. The report, which was forwarded to Washington today, deals vol uminously with the work of gradually reor ganizing this department of the capitu lated territory. The sum of J107.753 was collected during the period from various sources and pay ments were made of $13,101 for sanitary and similar purposes, city police and municipal salaries, salaries of custom house officials and miscellaneous expenses. After reviewing the various sources of revenue, Mr. Donaldson estimates the ar mini Income of the province of Santiago at 12,160,000. He makes a strong plea for the assignment of a revenuecutter for con tinuous employment in these waters. The question of a definite, stable currency fcr Cuba is dealt with. Duties at present are paid In gold coin of the United States, rendering necessary daily estimates and computations of comparative values, there being no absolute standard of a circulating medium, and confusion has arisen, partic ularly in the matter of interchangeable value of silver coins of the two countries. Attempts have been made by local flnan ciers to secure a conventional agreement that Spanish silver coin, be exchanged for American coin on a basis of two to one; but as the interchangeable value and exchange value of the respective coins do not corre spond, the attempt? have not resulted in even temporary benefit. As a preliminary step to disposing of the matter, it will recommend that, as soon as practicable, authoritative Instructions be Issued that duties be collected entirely in American gold. The revenue collected has been found sufficient tn cover all the ad ministrative expenses of Santiago thus for authorized. Other resources disclosed ln the archives of the office are available for the Increased, unexpected or extraordinary expenses. These resources are estimated at flC.eoO yearly for Santiago city nrd for other towns In the province ot llS.Snrt. The report closes with a manifest of the numer ous sources of public revenue. The sums authoritatively collected and duly account ed for would more than suffice to support ln an adequate manner all the expenses of administering the province-, even if th--> rates, of assessment were reduced, ln view of the Impoverished conditio! of this por tion of the Island. The lower rates of duty specified In the schedules prescribed have resulted In greater revenue receipts during the period covered by the report than were found ln the records of the off Ice during the Corresponding period under the Spanish regulations. DOWN FROM DAWSON Miners Glad to Get Back Without Any Dust SKATTI.E, Bent. 22.—The steamer Hum boldt arrived today, twelve days from St. Michael, with 230 passengers from Dawson.

THE DARBY CASE The Prosecution Puts in Some Unex- pected Evidence FRESNO, Sept. 22.—The fourth day of tho. trial of Frank Darby, accused of kill ing Louis Boldini, has bean full of eenea tlonal features. Tho prosecution is still putting In its ease, and has shown by sev er.-il witnesses that the party of which Hol dini was a member had but* ono g-.in ln their possession. This gun had been taken to Mendota by one Sanchez previous to the shooting. It developed on cross-ex amination of Constable Adams of Mendo ta, today, that there were two gutiß ln tho party, the one taken from Mendota and . one which was found ln the wagon when the Constable visited tho scene of the murdor. It is thought now that the defense will endeavor to show that Boldlnl was killed by a member of his own party. At any rate tho endeavor will be made to build up a reasonable doubt along this line. The Introduction of the second gun Into the affair caused a decided sensation. It was unlocked for. DIED FROM NEGLECT Captain Worden's Friends Mourn His Needless Death " DENVER, Colo., Sept. 22.—Captain Chas. A.

JERSEY REPUBLICANS ASK NO INQUIRY INTO ARMY MISMANAGEMENT FUSION FAILS IN MONTANA Democrats Nominate a Straight Ticket While Populists and Silver Re publicans Unite Forces Associated Press Special Wire. TRENTON, N. J., Sept. 22.—The Repub lican state convention to nominate a can didate for Governor was called to order ln Taylor's opera house at noon today by Chairman Franklin Murphy of the State Committee, who Introduced Attorney-Gen eral Griggs as presiding officer. Mr. Griggs received an ovation. He spoke briefly of local State politics ln the last political cam paign. Ho then continued: "And in this latest time of storm and stress, ln the midst of great perplexity and under the weight of enormous responsibilities, lt|Js. a pleas ant thing to bear witness that our I'resident has retained the confidence and support of those who aided us In 1896. And morn than that, he has had the assistance of the ad vice nnd counsel of many of the respons ible leaders of the Democracy North ard South, loyally and sincerely rendered, with out thought of partisan or political dif ferences. "He has had behind him the support of the American people with a greater degree of unanimity than any President since Washington. "What can political opposition rest upon In this campaign? There is nothing but academic discussion left for Democratic platforms. They may denounce protective tariffs, but no one will care. Thoy havo nothing newer or better than the Chi ago platform from which tens of thousands of New Jersey Democrats revolted. If thnt was a dangerous and alarming diversion of Democratic doctrine, then lt Is now orly ridiculous. It has upon|tt the double con demnation of popular defeat and present great Inconsistency with every great oc currence In history since 1896. "I do not speak of that other Item which certain newspapers ard other .are trying to make the leading issue of the Demo cratic campaign. Forgetting the glory, the achievement, the success with which an army of 200.000 men was raised out of nothing, nnd a hostile notion almost wiped out In ninety days, they are hovering like buzzards over the battlefields and hospitals ard grave-yards, looking only for the mis ery and suffering and death which are In evitable In war. Surely the Democratic pnrty hns not been reduced so low In tho supply of proper subjects for political di vision as to need to rely upon yellow fever and yellow literature. "The country demands now a branch of statesmanship new to Amerlcars—the proper methods and means for the control and government of colonial dependencies arid the adjustment of colonial Interests and affairs to the Interests of the home government—a field wherein partisan pol itics should not easily he.allowed to enter, but where broad and enlightened state pol icy may have full scope to work out plans wherehy the blessings of essential liberty and Twentieth century civilization may be assured to the peoples that are to be under our paternal career reciprocal benefits may be obtained for our own countrymen. "I believe In the capacity of Americans to govern, to govern themselves and others. I believe that the boundless capacity nnd the splendid courage of America with her high sense of Justice, her appreciation of th© rights of man, will In the new duties placed upon us work out marvellous for the peoples that have come under our guard ianship ar.d greatest glory for our country. "And how we have been blessed already. All the old root of bitterness between Xorth and South removed. What yearsnnd years of political effort could not do, wns done tn a moment when our standards were set toward a foreign foe and the consummate tact and grace of our Republican President refused to make; any distinction between Federal and Confederate, but put Lee and Wheeler side by side with Kent and Shaf ter, 'Tanks' and 'Johnnies' all keeping step together to the mnslcf of the Union. "It has been the happy result of this war to have brought back, forever we trust, that entire esteem, confidence and affec tion, the old good humor between the people of the Xorth and South, as ln the days when Adams and Hamilton nnd Jay la bored and conferred in fraternal harmony with Tatrlck Henry ard Thomas Jeffer son and the Plnckney's about our country's interest." After the address of Attorney General Griggs the convention decided to remain In continuous session. The committee nn resolutions reported the platform, which wai adopted with the single exception of the following sentence, which was stricken out on motion of Chairman Murphy: "And if hy the misconduct or incompe tency of any of these the health or lives of the American soldiers Have been needlessly sacrificed or endangered, we feel assured that the president and his constitutional advisers will make such investigation ns will bring the offenders, regardless of past or present political affiliations, to punish ment." Mr. Murphy said that If there, had boon any Incompetency ln connection with th" management of the war. tho Republican administration would rectify It without any resolutions. Congressman Rowler placed In nomina tion Acting Governor Voorhees of I'nlon county. Gov. Voorhees was nominated by acclamation and made a speech of ac ceptance. Tho convention adjourned at 2 4$ oclock. Foster M. Voorhees la at present a sen ator from Union county, nnd In his capac ity as president of the senate, hns been act ing as governor since Governor John W. Griggs was chosen attorney general. Montana Fusionists ANACONDA, Mont., Kept. 22.—The Dem ocratic, Populist and Silver Republican state conventions resumed their seslons this morning. The sensational feature of the day was the action of Gov. Robert 11. Smith. He was a Democrat until LSiM when he turned Populist. Ho was elected gov ernor ln 1896 by fusion of the Populists and Democrats. He was a delegate to the present Populist convention. This morn ing the governor bado goodbye to tho Pop ulists and visited tho Democratic conven tion, where, being accorded the privileges of the floor, he announced n desire to re enter the Democratic party. He was warmly welcomed. The Democratic convention nominated a straight ticket, namely: Wm. I. l'embcr ton of Hutte for chief Justice of the su preme court; Wilbur T.

About It a. m. the secre tary and Surgeon General Sternberg, ac companied by Brig. Gen. Boynton, left for Chickamauga park, where they spent the day ln a critical examination, of tha hospitals over which there has been so much controversy. Before leaving Chat tanooga Gen. Alger said to a reporter: "The press has been disposed to exag gerate the condition of some of the camps and things have been charged against the war department which were untrue and unwarranted. I want the facts and all the facts to come out and have nothing to withhold from the public. "The trouble has been that people have not appreciated the Immense problem of forming an army of 250,000 volunteers with out arms and without necessary equip ments. The Spanish war came on us al most like a bolt from a clear sky and lt found every branch of the war depart ment unprepared for the tssk of equip ping and handling such a vast number of untrained men. "For a time there was difficulty in fur nishing supplies and equipping the troops, but that was to be expected. The depart men had only a limited supply of tents and It had practically no wagons or am bulances to start with. There were a thou sand and more details to look after and a fairly disposed public will understand tho disadvantages with Which the war depart ment worked for many weeks. As fast as possible supplies and equipments were sent to tha several camps and If there has been lack of medicines and necessaries of life the fault Is with commanding officers of the camps. "There may have been some Incompe tent officers, generals and colonels, ln charge of some of the camps, and If such ls found to be the case they will be held strictly accountable for their misdeeds. "If there are any commanding officers who are now Incompetent or who fall to put their camps In first class condition ami keep them that way, I propose that they shall be replaced by mon who are competent and who will see that perfect sanitary conditions are established and I maintained."
