TWENTY-SIXTH YEAR. NO. 61. THE SECRETARIES ARE BUSY Formulating the Terms of the Treaty With Spain THE DRAFT TO BE SUBMITTED TODAY When Points Outside of the Protocol Will Be the Subject of Friendly Negotiation —French Editors Doubt the Goodness of America's Bargain Associated Press Special Wire PARIS, Nov. 29.—The secretaries of the two peace commissions, Messrs. Moore and Ojedia, began their joint task of formulating the articles ot the peace treaty nt 3 o'clock this afternoon, as directed by their respect jive commissions at yesterday's conference. This' work will be easy anel rapid as to the re linquiwhment and cessions referred to in the protocol, the terms of which document will be transferred bodily to the treaty. The secretaries, moreover, wil) embody tentative articles for discussion on Wednes day, the subjects of the religious freedom of the Caroline islands, a naval station for the United States in the same group, cable land ing rights at other points within Spain's jurisdiction, the release of the insurrection ist prisoners and the revival of the treaties broken, by the war. Thus the commercial and general treaty of 1795 will be revived to be recast later; the treaty of 1834 for the settlement of certain claims will be revived; the treaty of 1877, providing for extradition will bo revived; the trade mark treaty of 1882 will be re vived, and the supplemental extradition treaty of 1887 will be revived in addition to several modus Vivendi agreements. It is expected that the secretaries will submit the treaty articles at the joint ses sion tomorrow, when all the other points for negotiation will be diseusse-d. Thus the commissions tomorrow will have before them the entire treaty for amendment, approval or rejection. On all the points outside of the protocol there will be friendly negotia tions only, Spain having the right to name prices, if she wants to, for her territory and to reject or accept the American offers. The Spaniards no less than the Americans now are anxious to conclude the business which brought them here. THE DRAFT COMPLETED As the result of the work of Mr. Moore nnd Senor Ojeda. the draft of the articles embodying the protocol agreements was completed, this evening. It will be pre sented to the two commissions in the morn ing nt their separate sessions and in the afternoon nt the joint session, when it will receive final consideration. There will be little delay on these articles. Air. Moore will also submit tomorrow to the United States commissioners the subjects to be presented to the Spaniards (or negotiation These for convenience and'greater dispatch are being drafted into the form of articles. The release of the insurgent prisoners held by Spain will go into the protocol agree ments, it having been alrendy ngreed that Spain is to release them upon the United States' undertaking to secure the reloase of the Spanish prisoners in the hands of Aguin aldo. This question is so intimately relateel to the peace treaty that it has been removed from the subjects that are matters of nego tiations- and has been embodied in the ar ticles containing the protocol agreements. FRENCH EDITORIAL COMMENT The Soleil, reviewing the situation at length, says: "Pfobably the greatest difficulty the United Stntes has before her will be the strong differences of opinion in the senate nnd house on the question of territorial ex pansion." The Petit Bleu says: "All the friends of Spain will congratulate her on having putan ', end to these painful negotiations and fin ished this sail chapter in her history. Those of the United States can, on the other bund, regret, perhaps, that, they should not have shown themselves more generous in victory, and thnt they should have too easily for gotten the disinterested nnd exclusively philanthropic motives, in tbe name of which they undertook the war. They cannot see, cither, without some disappointment the sudden and complete breaking down of the principles that have made the greatness and prosperity of their republic, and they anx iously ask themselves whnt influence the policy of conquest will have upon their des tinies and upon the world. Tbe Monroe doc trine is now out of date. The American re public, conquering ami colonizing, no longer has the right to close to Europe the new con fine nt, since she herself has stepped out of it." The Intrnnsigeant alludes to the possible objection of (irent Britain and Germany to the cession of the Sulu islnnds, on the ground that the treaty of 1877 stipulated that this group does not properly belong to the Philippines, and remarks: "How ever that may be, the presence in ramp of the international policy of the United States as a colonial power of importance is n serious event nnd one thnt mny hnve unforeseen consequences." The Temps rays: "From the outset the Americans have negotiated on the principle of take it or leave it, nnd have covered their claims by a sort of sanctity." Continuing, the Temps asks: "If the tri umph, to call it so, is complete, may it not contain grave elements of danger and) anxi ety lo the Americans? The trnnsntlantic democracy hns become Imperialist, and a republic founded on federalism and auton omy has become a conquering ono. From nn international point of view, this menns a repudiation of the Monroe doctrine and tlie entrance of America into the conflicts nnd intrigues of the great powers, and Itjr harsh ness to Spain is the cause of much anxiety ss to her relations with other powers." The Temps also expresses the opinion that Spnin has purchased peace with tho United States at the expense of internal turmoil. The Journal ties Debats says: "The Amer icans, having started out to liberate Cuba, hnve ende«Mvy pocketing what remained of Spain's colonies. This moral evolution of **=»•<■* mericans is edifying as a good example • BftfJ-iauner in which one enn, almost in '.Vednef\ arrive at the formulation of the to CharlesN, (18, for theSt I most outrageous demands by a confusion of ambition and duty nt once, by considering nn interest to be a divine right. Now that America has entered the arena of interna tional polities, she may have some lively surprises in store even for those who have been ready to offer their friendship." COLD COMFORT Senor Abraguza Prophesies Trouble in the Philippines NEW YORK, Nov. 20.—A dispatch to the World from Paris says: Spanish Peace Commissioner Abraguza, discussing the peace negotiations, said: "We have fulfilled our mission here, and hnve ngreed to make a treaty of peace, but we do so under protest that our sovereign rights over the Philippines are still intact. Our memorandum today set this fact forth, though admittedly it cannot effect the treaty. "We lose our colonial empire, but Ameri ca does not know what new and difficult responsibilities she is undertaking. The Is land of Mindanao alone will keep her busy for years." Being asked if the treaty will contain any reference to debts, Senor AbaTaguza an swered : "No: inasmuch as the Americans have put these tpiestions aside and have refused to take them into account when framing the treaty. Subsidiary" matters, such as cable stations and so on, will be dealt with separ ately. "I don't expect more than two or three sittings; after Wednesday." Senor Ojeda, the principal Spanish Secre tary, said: "Peace is assured. We have agreed to sign a treaty in accordance with the pro tocol of Washington, but at the same time protesting our sovereignty rights over the Philippines, nnd stating that we only yield to the hard American terms owing to our in ability to renew the war and in the presence of superior force." Secretary Moore.of the American Com mission puts it this way: "The Spaniards accepted our conditions unreservedly, and n draft of treaty will be laid before the joint meeting on Wednesday. They have accepted $20,000,000 for the Philippines.'' The American Commissioners are highly pleased and relieved that the crisis hns been successfully surmounted. They did not at all relish the possibility of failing in their task. President Day remarked with undis guised gratification: "I hope we shall be sailing for home in a fortnight. Everything is now clear." The Spanish Commissioners were gloomy and depressed at Monday's meeting. There was) no interchange nf the usual compliments and civilities. They were performing an un grateful task upon compulsion. It is known that Senor Montero Rios asked PretrrieT Sagasta to accept their resignation form the eoinmmission rather than force them to ae ce-ed to a surrender of Spain's colonial em pire. Hut Sagasta appealed to them to fulfill their mission in the interest of the dynasty. For the first time since the meeting of the commission the Spaniards have left off the gravity of their pathetic demeanor. When (ieneral Cerreo entered his enrriage he put a handkerchief to his eye, being overcome with emotion. Montero Rios left the meeting place with bowed hend and a spiritless gait, the picture of dejection. Secretaries Moore and Ojeda will meet today to begin a treaty in conformity with the American demands, including the relin quishment of Spanish sovereignty over Cuba, the ceding of Porto Rico anel of the entire Philippine group. The draft will be ready Wednesday when the American Com missioners will present in. form of articles, the others matters referred to in their last propositions, which are to be embodied in the final treaty. Only verbal discussions will be held then. It is expected that the treaty will be signed within two weeks from Wednesday. OFFICIAL NOTICE Of Conclusion of Negotiations With Spain WASHINGTON, Nov. 29.—The govern ment hns been officially advised of the ter mination of the Spanish peace negotiations with Spain. A cablegram to this effect which has been received from Chairman Day was read at today's Cabinet meeting by the Sec retary of State. By the terms of the treaty, which will be signed during the present week, Spain surrenders to the United States her sovereignty in the Philippine Islands and Guam island, one of the Ladrone group. In lieu of nil claim to indemnity the United Suites will pay Spain the sum of $20,000,000 in gold or its equivalent. Before returning to tlie United States our Paris commissioners will secure from the Spanish representatives if possible a proposition for the sale to the United States of a strong island, one of the Caroline group, some distance east and south of Luzon, for a cable station. Should Spain, however, decline to sell the island for a rea sonable sum the matter will be dropped, for the present at least. The possible cession of this island is not involved in the pending treaty and no pressure will be brought to bear to induce Spain to part with it. A large Va rt of the time of today's Cabinet ! meeting was taken up in the discussion of the THE HERALD new customs tariff which is to be put into operation in all paits of Cuba as soon as the United States takes formal possession. The apprehension which manifested itself some time ago over the attitude of Aguinaldo and the Philippine insurgents bus not en tirely disappeared, though the administra tion believes they will accept the situation without a conflict with the United States. The matter was discussed at length today and some of the views expressed inelicated n possibility that the insurgents may yet have to be dealt with. Meanwhile, however, the president expects serious trouble with Aguinaldo will be avoided, but at the same time lias guarded against an outbreak by taking precautionary measures. The American force already in occupancy of part of the Philippines is regarded ns al together adequate to cope with any emerg ency that may arise. The future government of the islands enme up incidentally and Sec retary Alger made sonic suggestions as to de tails of a military government for the islands. German Suspicion BERLIN, Nov. 29.—The Cologne Ga zette says: "International envy has prevented Eu rope from opposing the excessive demands of the United Stntes upon Spain. Although they might have profited richly by tbe situ ation, the powers feared to make a bitter enemy of America, with the consequent closing of her markets if they opposed the annexation of the Philippines. "It is believed that Great Britain will get Chusan as compensation, and both Englnnd and America are suspected of having some disagreeable surprise in store." Sagasta Is Satisfied MADRID, Nov. 29—Sagasta showed much emotion on learning that the Spanish commission in Paris had formally agreed to sign the treaty of peace, but he assured his friends that he wns convinced he had adopt ed the best course in the interest of the coun try and tire monarchy, adding that the news had lifted a great weight from the minds ot the people. The Bank of Spain has made a fresih ad vance to the government of 00,000,000 pes etas to cover the expenses' of repatriating tbe Spanish troops in the Philippines and the Antilles, The Republican papers violently attack both the government and the Amer icans. The Cuban Bonds LONDON, Nov. 30.—The Madrid corre spondent of the Daily Mail says: "Senor Sagasta asserts that if the United States insists upon Spain paying the Cuban antl Philil»pine debts she will honor her signa ture to the extent of her resources and thut the government will not refuse to accept this burden." • The Vicente Estate SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 29.—Next Tues day a cross petition for the distribution ol the setnte of the lnte Jose Vicente de La veaga, filed by Dolores Apolonia de Revera de Laveaga, will be argued before Judge Coffey. Dolores Apolonia de Revera de Ln veaga claims to be the daughter of Jose Maria de Laveaga und Jesus Bustillo. Whether they wen* married or not she in un able to state, but ns Jose Maria de Laveaga was a brother of Jose Vicente de Laveaga she claims to be an heir at law of the latter. In consequence she asks that one-fourth of tlie estate of Jose Vicente, which remains undisposed of by will, valued at $841,000 be distributed to her. Shortage Increasing SAN LUIS OBISPO, Nov. 29.—The short age shown in the books of Tax and License Collector Findley, who is missing, is $11,323, but County Clerk Whitaker estimates that the defalcation will reach $80,000. The Su pervisors have begun a thorough investiga tion. . 1 LOS ANGELES, WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 30, 1895 MY EIGHTH WARD SPEECH LAST N IGHT HONOR PAID TO DEWEY BY LOYAL LEGION MEMBERS AT MANILA Transport Zealandia Has Arrived and Others Are Expected—Natives Forming Little Republics MANILA, Nov. 29.—At the Loyal Legion banquet here yesterday, sixty-nine guests were present.

The Uasino Espanol here has donated #411 to each Spanish officer and $10 to each pri vate in captivity by the insurgents. The Philippine papers are demanding good roads into the interior for the trans portation of produce, ivhich is now wasted. Charles MoKinnon, a member of an Ore gon regiment, died today of smallpox. Advices from Iloilo say the natives of the Viaayas island's have established a re public independent of Luzon. In some of the island.- 'hostilities are proceeding be tween rival republics. EXPULSION OF ALIENS Brings a Threat of Reprisal From Austria VIENNA, Nov. 29.—1n the reichsrath to day the premier and minister of the interior. Count Thnn Hohenstein, replying to an in terpellntion on the subject of the expulsion of Austrian* from Prussia, said that while there was undeniable severity in the action of the Prussian authorities, it could not be described as a flagrant violation of the prin ciples of international law. Nevertheless, he added, the foreign office had strongly protested against tlie steps taken by tbe Prussian officials, and the assurances of the Berlin cabinet warranted the hope that greater consideration will be shown to Aus trinns, "But," snid the premier in conclu sion, "should this expectation be not fulfilled tbp government will not hesitate to ener getically protect the rights of Austrian* and if necessary adopt retailiatory measures." CANADIAN QUESTIONS All Wait on Solution of the Sealing Problem WASHINGTON, Nov. 29— The Anglo- American commission expected to resume consideration of tlie reciprocity discusion to day, but as the Bering sea question had not been disposed of, the consideration- of that branch of the work was continued. While considerable progress has ben made, a final adjournment upon the sealing question is not yet assured. Besides tbe present valuation of tlie Cana dian sealing fleet, it is said the relinquish ment of the rights of sealing is another factor which the Canadians consider quite as important as tlie value of tiie present tleet. Questions relating to tlie great lakes were taken up by a special commission this afternoon. These included controversies over the number of warships which are to he maintained and built on rhe lakes, fishing rights, navigation and wrecking privileges and various questions arising out of the treaty of 1817. In view of a report current in London that the Bering sea question had been final ly settled, it was stated in an authoritative quarter today that such a settlement had not been reported. The status is about the same as it was a week ago, except that a large amount of expert testimony has been taken, the two sides waiting to shape the utmost concessions which each will grant. A BITTER FIGHT To Compel Express Companies to Pay War Taxes ST. LOUIS, Nov. 30.—William R. Cor wine of the Merchants' association of New York, who is in the city attending the Mer chants! Anti-Scolping conference, in an in terview, tells of the crusade being made in New York to compel the express companies to pay the war stamp tax imposed by the present revenue laws. "In addition to the taking of the question into tbe courts," Mr. Corwine said, "the association proposes to introduce a bill in the legislature this wintei —and to fight it to a finish—to place the express companies under the control of the railroad commis sion of New York stale and regulate their charm s. This fight will be a very bill er one. Tbe .Merchants' association proposes to ob tain the co-operation of every manufacturer and every merchant in tbe state of New York, and through them to appeal to the members of the senate and assembly through their respective districts to support this movement." Efforts are being made to organize similar movements in other states. Mr. Corwine says that a project is being pushed rapidly for tbe organization in the large cities of the country of package eoni oanies, so called, to virtually take the place of the express companies. This is being done, be says, not for the purpose of mak ing money, but. to save it for merchants and others all over the country, who are paying excessive express charges. It is the purpose of these package compan ies to accept packages for shipment. These will be packed in large cases anil sent to their destination by fast freight at about the same time made by express companies and at about half the cost. THE THREAD COMBINE All the Stock Has Already Been Sold NEW YORK, Nov. 2!).—The promoters of the American Thread company announced today that subscriptions would be opened on Thursday to the capital stock and first mortgage bonds of the company. It is stated that this will be a mere formality, inasmuch as every share of tlie common stock of the so-called trust has been sold at par and the entire stock will be over-subscribed several times. The issue will be made simultaneously in this country, (ireat Britain and Canada. The American Thread company was incor porated eight months ago under the laws of the slate of New Jersey.

The new company will, it is understood, co-operate with tiie two consolidated com panies of England, which are financially in terested in the American company.
