Ths Peace Commissioners In Justice
Should Hear the Filipino Case
Before Making Decision
Associated Press Special Wire.
CHICAGO, Sept. 26.—The Tribune's staff
correspondent on board the Overland Lim
ited telegraphs from Carroll, lowa, that
Felipe Agonclllo, the first accredited emis
sary of Agulnaldo's revolutionary govern
ment to any foreign power, with his secre
tary and Interpreter, will, upon reaching
Chicago, proceed to Washington over the
Pennsylvania line to lay before President
McKlntey the appeal of the Filipinos for
representation on the Peace Commission
at Paris. .
If official representation on the commis
sion cannot be granted, he will urge that
the administration at Washington, ln jus
tice to the people of the Philippines, should
secure for him the right to be heard by the
commission ln order that any unjust
charges or false accusations against the
Filipinos which the Spanish members of
the commission may set forth shall not
go unanswered.
Following is Agonclllo's formal statement
to the American people of his mission and
the grounds' on which he bases hts appeal:
"It Is to grant to the Philippine people
representation ln the course of the discus
sion of the Spanish-American commission
In Paris, or that the provisional govern
ment or its official representative be heard
before the Spanish-American commission
shall reach any decision regarding the Phil
"It la justice that the Philippine people
should not be undefended, for lt might hap
pen that the representatives of Spain would
make formidable charges against, the Fil
ipinos, and ln lack of representation from
the Filipinos these charges might be cred
"Therefore, lt is Inadmlssable, under the
most rudimentary beginnings of sound rea
son, that the Filipinos should be without
a hearing."
Of conditions In the Philippine Islands
and the hopes and wishes of the Filipinos,
this Is what Agonclllo says:
"If the outcome of the peace negotiations
shall be that this government Is given the
control of the Island, I have not the slight
est doubt that If left alone by foreign pow
ers, the Islands would be well and orderly
governed. When I left Hong Kong there
were In the assembly 180 representatives
coming from all the provinces In Luzon
nnd from several of the Islands, and I ex
pect to learn upon reaching Washington
that still more have been chosen. These
representatives are the most popular men
In their provinces, and the people accord
ingly have confidence ln their government.
"A«l to the power of the Filipinos' gov
ernment to control the Islands and main
tain order, provided the Spanish forces are
withdrawn, I have no misgivings. There
are 30,000 armed men ln Its army. Some of
Its arms came from captured Spaniards
and some from foreign countries; I am
not at liberty to say where.
"No, they did not come from Germany,
and the statements that have been made
that the Filipinos are secretly conniving
with the Germans are false and unjust. It
Is true that a few days after the destruction
of the Spanish fleet ln Manila Bay represen
tatives of the German empire made propos
als to the Insurgents to aid them ln forming
an Independent government. This offer was
refused, the reply made to the Germans
being that under an agreement entered
Into between Agulnaldo and Admiral
Dewey the Insurgents are In honor bound
to refuse the offer."
Agonclllo was asked what would be the
attitude of the Filipinos and the provisional
government If the outcome of the peace ne
gotiations should be that the Islands should
pass Into the hands of the United States,
either for temporary or permanent control.
He replied:
"Whether or not the Filipinos would
forcibly resist such a disposition of the is
lands I cannot state. The question would
go before the Assembly and Agulnaldo's
attitude must, under the constitution, be
determined by action of that body. The
form of the provisional government Is
thoroughly republican. But I will say that
the feeling of the people of the Philippines
with regard to the question would depend
largely upon what form of government the
Americans should propose. If it meant
simply the control of the Islands by the
United States, the government of this
country assuming the responsibility of
maintaining good order and controlling the
revenues of the Island, I do not think the
feeling against such a movement would be
strong, though the Filipinos are anxious to
govern themselves, but If It should be plan
ned that the United States take the is
lands for the purpose of colonization, which
might eventually crowd out the native pop
ulation, ln my opinion there would be
greater difficulty ln bringing the people of
the Islands to submission.
"Our appeal to the United States Is for
aid ln securing; what we most desire, and
what we believe to be for the best Interests
Of the Island. It Is not made with the pur
pose of playing Into the hands of any other
nation, and If the Filipinos are not to gov
ern themselves, there Is no nation they
would more willingly prefer to be governed
and controlled by than the United States.
As to the possibility of maintaining an or
derly and harmonious government among
the people of the Islands, If It Is left to
them, many opposing arguments have been
urged, which are ln largo part groundless."

WASHINGTON, Sept. 26.—The commis
sion selected by the President to Investi
gate the conduct of the War Department
held Its first formal session today with
all tho members present. Today's meeting
was strictly secret, no newspaper repre
sentatives or others not connected with
the board being admitted.
After a meeting of two hours' duration
adjournment was token until ten o'clock
tomorrow. The proceedings were limited
to an outline of a general policy arid the
formulation of letters of Inquiry which will
bo made public tomorrow.
The letters decided upon are to be ad
dressed to the Secretary of War, the Quart
ermaster-General, the Commissary-Gen
eral, the Surgeon-General and the Chief
of the Ordnance Department of the army.
They will consist in the main of Inquiries
tending to bring out all the facts that can
be given relative to the organization of the
volunteer army. These officials will be
asked to give specific Information so as to
cover each of the departments ln question,
concerning the condition of the army, both
at the beginning and the close of the war.
For this purpose a date ln April has beon
selected as the one for the beginning of the
preparation and another in August for the
close. The questions are so formulated as
to call out answers covering the organiza
tion of camps, tho purchase of supplies and
the taking of contracts with transportation
companies, and also to shorn the methods
adopted! for furnishing supplies to the var
ious commands} for protecting the health
of the soldiers. There will be an especial
effort made to develop the motives that
actuated the department ln the choice of
camp sites, as there have been charges of
favoritism to railroad companies.
The commission also considered several
letters of complaint from persons profess
ing to have Information bearing upon the
subject of Investigation, and decided to ad
dress replies to the waiters, requiring them
to put their charges ln specific shape and
informing them of the scope of the Inquiry.
It Is Intended, If the replies received to
these letters show the writers to be pos
sessed of real Information, to summon
them before the commission when lt is
feasible to do so, otherwise to secure their
affidavits. When, however, lt becomes
evident that their accusations are mere
Idle complaints with no Information back
of them, the writers will not receive fur
ther attention.
The commission also expects to extend
Its inquiry before lt closes Its work, to the
extent of summoning before' lt the com
manding officers of the various divisions
and brigades, and probably Colonels of the
regiments from which complaints have
emanated. They will be expected to give
full information as to the pains they may
have taken or failed to take concerning the
location of their troops and their general
The commission decided to hold two ses
sions- dally, one from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.,
and the other from 2 to 4 p.m.
Dr. P. S. Conner sat with the commission
today. He arrived from his home ln Cin
cinnati early ln the day, and called on the
President for a brief interview before join
ing his fellow-members ln the War Depart
ment. The President expressed his ap
preciation of the doctor's acceptance of the
position, and outlined briefly his wishes ln
the matter of the Investigation. Dr. Con
ner secured a leave of absence for two or
three days ln order to go to Cincinnati to
put his affairs in shapes, to be absent as
long as the work of the commission may
In Dr. Conner the commission secures
the sen-Ices of a man who Is notedly emin
ent ln his profession, but who Is also fam
iliar with the conduct of the military de
patment of the army, ln whleh he served'
for four years. He was born at West

To Be Aided by Careful Survey of
NEW YORK, Sept. 26.—A Herald special
from Washington says:
For the benefit of American commerce
steps are being taken by the Navy Depart
ment, In accordance with the recommenda
tion of Commander R. B. Bradford, cniet of
the Bureau of Equipment, to make a thor
ough survey of the more Important harbors
of Cuba and Porto Rico.
The yacht Stranger, under command of
Lieutenant G. L. Dyer, is being fitted out
with surveying instruments and will pro
ceed to Guantanamo bay, where a care
ful survey of the harbor will be made. The
bay is regarded as an excellent place of
refuge by naval officers, and will probably
be made a coaling station in case Cuba
should pass Into the hands of the United
States. From Guantanamo the Stranger
will proceed to Guanlca, Porto Rico, where
a surgey of the harbor will be made. The
Stranger Is also under orders to examine
Culebra Island, upon the advantages of
which as a site for a coaling station Cap
tain C. P. M. Chester reported favorably.
The authorities have given up the idea of
establishing a coaling station at San Juan
Porto Rico on account of the small amount
of water In the harbor.
Rear Admiral Sicard will be retired on
Friday. His retirement will cause no va
cancy, nor will that of Rear Admiral Mat
thews, who will be retired early next
Some Sickness but No Lack of Food
WASHINGTON, Sept. 26—The following
cablegram has been received at the War
"Ponce, Sept. 26, '98.—Adjutant-General,
Washington D. O: Cable regarding sick
ness and want of rations received. That
there are sick Is a fact; a small propor
tion are bad cases, but there has been no
want of food. The last report gives total
of sick, 2509. Four hundred typhoid and
four hundred and ninety malarial fever;
297 diarrhoea. Other diseases, Uii. Per
centage, 23. Think return of regiments
now here would not be advisable, as others
coming in would have to go through tho
same acclimating process. Would advise
that certain sick be sent home, whose re
covery would doubtless be quickened. If
regiments are sent to take the place of
those now here, special attention should
be given to selecting those under good dis
cipline and having full quota of officers.
By this means men may be controlled and
sanitary precautions enforced in the small
detachments which necessarily must be

Rev. Mr. Mclntyre Pleads Not Guilty
and the Court Then Adjourns
Until Today
DENVER, Colo., Sept. 26— The trial of
Chaplain Mclntyre of the battleship Or
egon by court martial, for the usage of
language unbecoming an officer of the
nayy and calculated to destroy the good
order and discipline of the navy during
the delivery of a lecture ln Denver Aug

modore W. P. McCann, president; Lieuten
ant Commander W. H. Brlggs, Chaplains
D. H. Trlbou and T. A. Hill, Nathan
Barnes, Lieutenant Commander C. T.
Curtis and Lieutenant Commander J. J.
The Judge advocate, Captain C. H.
Lauchelmer, read the charges and speci
fications prepared by the prosecution.
They Included alleged extracts from the
lecture ln which the chaplain Is made to
say that Admiral Sampson reported him
self within four miles of the Spanish ship
Cristobal Colon when she struck her col
ors, ln order that he might participate ln
the prize money, though he had nothing to
do with the battle. He was also alleged
to have said that when the Oregon went
Into the fight it met the lowa, commanded
by "Fighting Bob" Evans, going to the
rear, where he stayed till the battle was
over. ,
He was also charged with saying that
the Oregon was the only battleship that
was honestly built.
Earl Cranston of Denver, attorney for
tho prisoner, moved that the charges be
quashed upon the ground that the re
marks were not of a scandalous charac
ter and only such as were used frequently
ln the public press and by the people gen
erally. He held that the statements
charged could not have affected the dis
cipline of the navy. He also argued that
there was no denial of the alleged state
ments; no charge of malicious intent, and
that the charges of fraud ln the building
of vessels was against contractors and
not against the navy department.
Judge Advocate Lauchelmer replied
briefly and the court denied the motion to

An Important Decision Rendered by
Judge Cary
MILWAUKEE, Wis., Sept, 26.—Special
Master Cary has filed a decision ln the
United States Court of great Importance
to the general creditors of the Northern Pa
cific Railway Company. Master Cary finds
that there Is due the company, although
lt has succeeded in acquiring the entire
property of the Northern Pacific, the
enormous sum of $86,292,681.73, with Inter
est from September Ist. This may be ad
ded to a further sum which will become due
January 1, 1902, amounting to 6499,717.
The only tangible assets of the Northern
Pacific Company that remains Is the land
east of the Missouri River, ln North Da
kota and Minnesota. There are nearly four
million acres, but there Is a great deal ot
litigation to be settled first with refer
ence to taxes that have not been paid, and
the holders of tax certificates 'to settle
with. These lands are In the possession
of Receivers Blgelow and McHenry and
are valued at not more than $18,000,000.
The decision, if upheld, will give the
company about ninety per cent of the pro
ceeds from the sale of the lands with ten
per cent to the other general creditors.
The claim which the master allows Is
founded upon the deficiency between the
amount received upon the bonds from the
proceeds of the sale of the road. The rail
road was hid ln by the Northern Pacific
Railway Company for the nominal sum of
$12,500,000, many times less than the prop
erty Is actually worth.
