MESSAGE TO
FILIPINOS
McKinley's Instructions Sent
to General Otis.
A STABLE GOVERNMENT
Is to Be Established in the Islands and
the Natives Are Asked to
Cooperate.
Washington. Jan. 5.—The text of in
structions sent Otis at Manila to be pro
claimed to the Filipinos as to their future
treatment by the United States is made
public. After citing the destruction of
the Spanish fleet in Manila harbor, the
success of American arms and the signa
ture of the treaty of peace and mention
ing the fact of the United States acquisi
tion of sovereignty over the entire Phil
ippine group, the president continues:
"It will be the duty of the commander
of the forces of occupation to announce
and proclaim in the most public manner
that we come, not as invaders or con
querors, but as friends to protect the
natives in their homes, in their employ
ments and in their personal and religious
rights. All persons who either by active
aid or honest submission co-operate with
the government of the United States to
give effect to these beneficent purposes
will receive rewards of its support, aid
and protetion. All others will be brought
within the lawful rule we have assumed
with firmness if need be, but without
severity so far as may be possible.
"Within absolute domain of military
authority which necessarily is and must
remain supreme in the ceded territory
until legislation of the United States
shall otherwise provide the municipal
laws of the territory, in respect to pri
vate rights and property and repression
of crime, are to be considered as continu
ing in force and to be administered by
ordinary tribunals as far as possible.
The operations of the civil government
are to be performed by such officers as
may accept the supremacy of the United
States by taking the oath of allegiance
or by officers chosen so far as may be
practicable from inhabitants of the
island.
"While control of all public property
and revenues of the state passes with
the cession and while the use and man
agement of all public means of transpor
tation are necessarily reserved to the
authority of the United States, private
property which belongs to individuals or
corporations is to be respected except for
cause fully established. Taxes and duties
heretofore payable by inhabitants to the
late government become payable to the
authorities of the United States unless
it be seen fit to substitute for them other
reasonable rates or mode of contribution
to the expenses of the government,
whether general or local. If private prop
erty be taken for military use it shall be
paid for when possible in cash at face
valuation and when payment in cash is
not practicable receipts are to be given.
"All ports and places in the Philippines
in actual possession of the land and naval
forces of the United States will be opened
to commerce of all friendly nations. All
goods and wares not prohibited for mili
tary reasons by due announcement of
military authority will be admitted upon
payment of such duties and other charges
as shall be in force at the time of their
importation.
"Finally it shall be the earnest and
paramount aim of the military admini
stration to win the confidence, respect
and affection of the inhabitants of the
Philippines by assuring to them in every
possible way the fullest measure of indi
vidual rights and liberty which is the
heritage of a free people and by proving
to them that the mission of the United
States is one of benevolent dissimulation,
substituting the mild sway of justice and
right for arbitrary rule. In the fulfill
ment of this high mission, supporting a
temperate administration of affairs for
the greatest good of the governed, there
must be sedulously maintained the
strong arm of authority to repress dis
turbance and to overcome all obstacles
to the best of all blessings of good gov
ernment of the people of the Philippine
islands under the free flag of the United
States government.

REVIEW OF IRON
AND STEEL TRADE

THE IRON AGE POINTS OUT TIIE
FEATURES OF THE MARKET
FOR THE WEEK.
New York, Jan. 5.—In reviewing the
iron and steel trades the Iron Age, point
ing out the latent features of the situa
tion, will say today. There is a contin
uance of activity in the iron and metal
trades, although, on the whole, the mar
ket is quite feverish and has been. As a
matter of fact, producers loaded for
many months to come are keeping within
a narrow circle of regular customers and
are inclined to discourage anything
which might foster speculation. How
heavily the steel works are engaged is in
dicated by the fact that one large concern
has one million tons of orders on its
books, while similar figures relatively are
reported from other works. One factor is
now coming to the surface and that is
that the railroads,with the heavy tonnage
offering, are withdrawing the special
rates on iron and iron products, thus en
hancing the delivered prices.
In the cruder materials the markets are
relatively quiet at stationary prices.
This is notably the case with Bessemer
pig iron and with steel billets and wire.
In finished material, however, in which
the values have been lagging behind, the
first impulse is coming. The beam asso
ciation has advanced the prices for beams
$2 per ton and other forms of structural
iron are also up. Bars are advancing,
the large demand continuing. Our Chi
cago correspondent notes the sales of one
block of 10,000 tons to an agricultural
implement maker. Plates are stiffer and
business is restricted by the inability to
make deliveries. Chicago notes a sale of
60,000 tons delivery at the seller's option.
In the rail trade the western minis have
raised prices $2 per ton, which seeems to
have clinched a number of options. The
Pennsylvania is reported to have placed
'ts order for 105,000 tons distributed
among the mills on the line.
A meeting of cotton tie manufacturers
is now being held in Pittsburg to reach
some agreement where the savage fight in
southern iron may be brought to a close.
In spite of the advancing 'tendency, ex
port orders continue to be placed and a
good deal af tonnage is being offered. A
number of manufacturers express tlieir
determination to make sacrifices to hold
the trade which they consider very valua
ble. It will be recalled some time since
the German pipe combination, a light and
power fuel organization, dropped prices
in order to freeze out the American works
which were invading the market. It is
interesting to note in view of this effort
that the National Tube works company
of McKeesport, Pa., have just sold 400,
000 feet of pipe for delivery in Germany.
Beyond the facts already given in con
nection with the wire association little
news has transpired. The Americon Iron
and Steel Wire company hkvepractical
contrai of the Cincinnati Barb Wire com
pany, the Pittsburg Barb Wire company
and the Rod and Wire Rod plant of the
Shenandoah Valley Steel and Rolling
Mills company. Negotiations are pend
ing with the Oliver trusts of Pittsburg
and with the Washburn and Moen Manu
factoring company. We understand the
capital stock of the American Steel and
Wire company now $24,000,000 equally di
vided between common and preferred, is
to be increased to close onto $100,000,000,
also equally divided between common and
preferred. Report has it that negotia
tions are pending for a steel plant in cen
tra! Ohio.
The American Tin Plate company have
not yet announced their selling policy,
.but eàrly settlement is looked forward to.
It is stated that no comprehensive ar
rangements as to the supply of tin plate
bars for the whole requirements have
been made, although certain sections are
taken care of. Report lias it that nego
tiations are pending with one steel plant,
and that the erection of new steel works
is under consideration as an alternative.
The success of recent consolidations is
reviving many old efforts in that direc
tion and is responsible for the appearance
of new schemes, one of which is the con
centration of a group of blast furnaces.
The latter project has nothing to do with
the movement by a syndicate to acquire
control of the Virginia furnaces.
GOMEZ WILL GO
TO HAVANA
AS SOON AS THE LAST OF THE
SPANISH TROOPS HAVE
EMBARKED.
New York, Jan. 5.—A dispatch to the
Tribune from Havana says: General
Brooke visited the members of the Amer
ican commission at Vedad on Tuesday
and consulted with the members regard
ing the matters which will he turned over
to him. These relate to military con
victs, sick Spanish soldiers and miscel
laneous subjects. The documents will
be left with General Brooke and the com
mission will hold a final session to close
up affairs on Friday. General M. C.
Butler will start for Washington on Sat
urday. General Ludlow is proceeding
cautiously on the organization of the
civil administration. The address of
Gomez received various comments. Go
mez was known to oppose the Cuban
celebration and now his characterization
of the island as neither free nor inde
pendent yet is interpreted to mean that
he wants to emphasize the temporary
nature of American control. American
military commanders themselves have
impressed the separate Cuban leaders so
that no controversy can arise at this
stage. Gomez's declaration that the first
duty is to provide for payment of the
insurgent soldiers has been anticipated
by news from Washington and his state
ment that it is necessary for the Cuban
people to terminate the intervention in
the shortest time possible is accepted
as a challenge for Cubans who favor an
nexation to declare themselves.
The remaining Spanish troops will be
embarked from Matanzas and Cienfuegos
within a fortnight, and then Gomez will
come to Havana. Reports received from
the interior of the island indicate the wil
lingness of the insurgents to disband if
left to themselves. The attitude of the
Spanish classes at this transition period
is carefully watched. They are divided
among themselves and sentiment shifts.
The radical element is forming into an
organization known as the Spanish col
ony. Its members propose to remain
Spanish subjects. They counsel acqui
escence in American control to the ex
tent of avoiding conflict and disorder, but
their actions are sullen. The bishop of
Havana is president of the Spanish col
ony in Havana. Conservative Spaniards
say he was misled into accepting the
place and that he will not handicap
American rule. He issued a pastoral let
ter two months ago counselling acqui
escence in the change of sovereignty.
His opponents say he is encouraging
Spnaish resentment and is seeking to
embarrass Archbishop Chappelle.
Navy officers here say little regarding
the Washington report that the navy re
sents the failure of the army command
ers to invite the naval commanders to
participate in the ceremonies at the pal
ace on Sunday. General Butler favored
Inviting Commander Cromwell and other
officers. General Wade, president of the
commission, said It did not matter If
navy officers did make a fuss. I

The Plan Not Approved
antiago, Jan. 5.—The explanation of the
war department of its intentions regarding
the transfer of the customs receipts from
different ports in Cuba to Havana, is met.
here by the statements from Cubans that
the plan is similar to the ono adopted by
the Spaniards. When requisitions were
made on Havana they obtained less than
fi per cent of what the requisitions called
for. Merchants, business men and influen
tial people here say Havana has grown rich
and prosperous at the expense of the rest
of the Island, and Cubans and governmental
officials at Santiago say the Cubans of Ha
vana are responsible for General Brooke's
order on this subject.
General Wood and Dr. Castillo left for
New York today, en route to Washington
to see the president on the subject, it is
thought the situation is critical. It is
doubtful whether any overt act will be
committed unless the populace is aroused
by further irritating orders from Havana.
Senate Proceedings
Washington, Jan. 5.—In the absence of the
vice president, on account of illness, Frye
(rep.) of Maine was president pro tern at
the opening of today's session of the sen
ate.
Berry (dem.) of Arkansas presented a
protest from J. E. Murray Camp of United
Confederate Veterans of Arkansas against
the adopting of the propsed amendment of
Butler (pop.) of North Carolina to the pen
sions appropriation bill, providing for the
payment of pensions to confederate sol
diers.
Hoar of Massachusetts gave notice that
next Monday he would address the senate
on the resolution offered by Vest of Mis
souri relating to the acquisition of foreign
territory by the United States.
Caffery of Louisiana announced that he
would address the senate tomorrow on the
same resolution.
Work of the House
Washington, Jan. 5.—Under the special
order adopted before the holiday recess the
house proceeded today to the consideration
of bills by the committee on judiciary. The
bills were first considered in committee of
the whole. The first bill called up was that
to create an additional circuit judge in the
Sixth judicial district. The bill was finally
laid aside, with a favorable recommenda
tion.
Will Fight Americans
Paris. Jan. 5.—An official telegram re
ceived by the Filipino junta here, dated
Manila, January 4, says Aguina'do has gone
to Iloilo at the request of the insurgents
there, to place himself at their head, with
a view of fighting the Americans.
__ New Spanish Cabinet
Madrid. Jan. 5.—General Polavieja,
former governor general of Cuba and of
the Philippine islands, and Senor Silvela,
conservative leader, have agreed upon
the formation of a new cabinet and have
been summoned by the queen regent. The
early advent of the conservatives to
power is regarded as certain.
