war is i:xdi:d.
WASHINGTON. Aug. The
var with Spain has come to its
f-nd. After over three months' of
hostilities, during- which American
arms have won glory and renown,
with corresponding humiliation and
defeat for the Spanish foe, the rep-
resentatives of each country today
afhxed their signatures to the pro
tocol, putting an end to the con
test at arms between the two na-
)
tions. The document which term-
inated the war was signed by Sec- )
I
) retary of State Day, on behalf of ()
the United States, and by M. Cam
bon, French Embassador at Wash
ington, on behalf of Spain.
() As a result of the war the Amer
ican flag floats over islands in both
the Kast and West Tndies. The rule
of Spain in the Western llemi-
sphere becomes a thing of the past.
Cuba is free, while Porto Rico and
all other West Indian islands come
under the dominion or protectorate
of the United States. The victor in
the light has the choice of an
island in the Tadrones, and retains
jossession of the city -and bay of
Manila. The war undoubtedly
hastened the annexation of Hawaii,
completing an island chain from
the I'acitic Coast to the Orient,
which it is believed will result in
mutual benefit to American com-
merce.
S :v
TERMS OF PROTOCOL.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 12. The protocol
which was signed today by Secretary
Day and f. Cambon, the French Embas
sador, provides as folio ws:
First That Spain will relinquish all

Cuba.
Second That Porto Rico and other
Spanish islands in the West Indies and
an island in the Ladrones, to he selected

Third That the United States will oc
cupy and hold the city and bay of Ma
nila, pending the conclusion of a treaty
of peace, which shall determine the con
trol, description and government of the
Philippines.
Fourth That Cuba. Porto Rico and
other Spanish islands in the West Indies
shall be immediately evacuated and that
commissioners to be appointed within ten
days shall within thirty days from the
signing of the protocol, meet at Havana
and San Juan respectively to arrange
and execute the details of the evacua
tion. Fifth That the United States and Spain
will each appoint not more than live
commissioners to negotiate and conclude
a treaty of peace. The commissioners

1st of October.
Sixth On the signing of the protocol

to that effect will be given as soon as
possible by each government to the com
manders of its military and naval forces.
The above is the official statement of
the protocol's contents, as prepared and
given to the press by Secretary Day.
THE SIGNING.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 12. With sim
plicity in keeping with republican insti
tutions, the war which has raged be
tween Spain and the United States for a
period of three months and twenty-two
days, was quietly terminated at 4:23
o'clock this afternoon, when Secretary
Day, for the United States, and M7 Cam
bon, for Spain, in the presence of Pres
ident McKinley, signed a protocol which
will form the basis of a definite treaty of
peace.
Throughout the ceremony all but the
two signers remained standing-. M. Cam
bon, in signing for Spain, occupied the
seat which Secretary of the Navy Long,
now away on n vacation, usually oc
cupies. As this ceremony was concluded. Acting
Secretary Allen of the Navy Department,
Secretary Alger and Adjutant General
Corbin appeared, having been summoned
to the White House by the President and
they were admitted to the Cabinet room,
just in season to witness one of the most
impressive features of the ceremony,
when the President requested the hand of
the Embassador, and through him re
turned thanks to the sister republic of
France for the exercise of her good offices
in bringing about peace.
He also thanked the Embassador per
sonally for the important part he has
played in this matter, and the latter re
plied in suitable terms. As a further
mark of his disposition, President McKin
ley called for the proclamation which he
had caused to be drawn up. suspending
hostilities, and signed it in the presence
of M. Cambon, who expressed his appre
ciation of this action. Without delay,
Acting Secretary Allen hastened to the
telephone and directed that cable mes
sages be immediately sent to all naval
commanders, Dewey in the Philippines,
Sampson at Guantanamo, and the other
commandants at Navy yards and stations
to cease hostilities immediately.
There is also a dispatch boat at II OT--konir,
and it is believed that it can reach
(b-n. Merritt in forty-eight hours at top
speed.
On the part of the Army, while S cre
tary Alger availed himself of the tele
graph, Adjutant General Corbin braved
the storm and rushed across to the War
Department, where he immediately is-
si; d ordi.-?-s. v. iiit h rrad been prepared i:i
advar.ee, to all the military -.mmand--rs,
to cease their operations. The State De
partment litliilled its duty by notifying
all diplomatic and consular at;. nts of the
action takeji.
All tlie formalities having been disposed
of, the President spent half an hour chat
ting with those present, and then, at 4:."-S
o'clock, the rain still continuing in force,
the Embassador and his secretary entered
their carriage and were driven- to the

LONDON, Aug. 12. The Rritlsh Par
liament was prorogued today. In the
ordinary course it would not reassemble
until February, but a prominent politi-
STATE DAY.
cian, while leaving the House' of Parlia
ment this afternoon, said: "Wo shall be
back hero beforo Christmas. Salisbury
will ask for a vote; of .C2o,o.,m"o ($100,0o0,
0U0), apparently for purposes of war, but
really te) avert war."
The references in the Queen's speech to
the situation in China are regarded as
halting and inconclusive. Regret is ex
pressed generally that the speech diel not
contain an explicit statement of Ens
land's determination to maintain her in
terests in the' Yang-tsf valley.
LONDON, Aug. 13. The morning pa
pers express the growing indignation of
the country at tlie position of affairs in
China.
The Daily Graphic says: "If this stab
of things continues, the guns will go
off of themselves."
The Shanghai correspondent of the
Daily Mail, who professes to divulge the
terms of a long-existing treaty between
China anel Russia, says: "It is nothing
less than an offensive; alliance'. China
undertakes to regard Russia as having a
preponderate influence on all questions of
commercial and internal policies, while
Russia will support China, against all
'open-door' demands.
"Russia finances China in internal de--velopments
and China grants Russia pref
erential rates in certain areas, and rail
ways built in the joint interests of the
two countries will be under Russia's
practical control. Russia will assist China
in developing her military ami naval
forces and China will cooperate with Rus
sia as an ally.
"This treaty has been in abeyance
since Li Hung Chang visited the Czar.
That it has become operative, at the
present moment in respect to the Peking
Hankow anel Newehwang contracts is
significant."
If the: Daily Mail's version may be;
trusted, it will explain much that has
been hitherto inexplicable in the develop
ment of the question. The manager of
the Hongkong and Shanghai Rank in
London, in the course of an interview
yesterelay. said: "I believo the Peking
Hankow line, owing to natural obstruc
tions and its costliness, will never be
built, Russia, merely wishing to keep
England out."
The French press comments gleefully
upon the situation and the- newspapers
at Re-rlin and Vienna are at no pains to
hide their satisfaction at the discomfiture;
of England. The Continental press re
gards the' project of an Anglo-American
alliance as chimerical. These consider
that tlie United States has had enough of
war for the present and will not care
to give Great Rribiin anything more than
moral support in China. Therefore, they
argue, England is not likely to pick a
quarrel with Russia, but will content her
self with seeking compensation else
where. A special dispatch from Shanghai says:
"The Russian agents are again intriguing
to obtain control of the Chinese Maritime
( 'ustoms Department."
DESPITE PROTEST.

e.'.ict has finally been issued sane-tie-

OULEN'S SPEECH.
LONDON, Aug. 12. The' Queen's speech
at the prorogation of Parliament began:
"My Lords and Gentlemen: My relations
with other nations continue friendly. I
have witnessed with the deepest sorrow
the hostilities which have taken placo
between Spain and the United States,
two nations to which my Emplro is
bound by many ties of affectlem and tra
ditiem. Negotiations recently opened
give fair ground for hoping that the de
plorable eonllict will be brought-to a ter
mination by the conclusion of an honor
able, and enduring peace.
"I have seen with much gratification
that you have this year add til to tho
statute book an important measure as
similating the leical institutions of Ire
land to those of England and Scotland.
I trust this reform will tend to strength
en the bonds which unite the people of
Great Britain and Ireland and increase
their common affection for the funda
mental institutions of the realm."
After expressing satisfaction at tho
adoption of bills enabling accuse! per
sons te testify in their own behalf, tho
speech ends: "I pray the blessing of Al
mighty God may atteml you."
