(Spnul Cablegram Oopyrislitnl.) Paris. Oct. 30. It is necessary to repeat that the danger of a complete rupture of the peace negotiations :s very grave. The Spanish commissioners are Mill Ignorant of what the American demands will le 'n regard to the Philippines, but unless these demands are much more magnanimous than even the Spaniards themselves an ticipate, an agreement will be impossible and the conference will come to a speedy tnd. It is important that certain facts should be known regarding the policy Spain will pursue In the contingencies that will probably arise. Besides confirming what has been cabled to The Times in the past two or three days on this subject, it is safe to say that if the United States proposes to anner the archipelago without paving more than the amount of the Philippine debt, Spain will threaten to withdraw from the conference tnd declare that she is at the mercy of rapacious conquerors. She will refuse to resist any coercion thai America may ap ply, and will Lescrch Europe to put a check on American greed. Kurope, of course, will do nothing of the kind, but the United States will then have the unpleasant task of enforcing Its demands against an unresisting foe. Spain has nothing to lose by putting America In this awkward position. Ku rope would protect, probably, against any Interference with the integrity of the pen insula, and Spain has little else to lose. The fact remains that the only means by which, it Is said by friends of Spain, it is possible for the United States to secure the Philippines through a treaty of peace tlgned by the Commission now silting in 1'j.rU, is by agreeing to pay Spain a large sum above the amount of the Phil ippine debt. It is unnecessary to give in detail the arguments in support of the Spanish posi tion, which that country's representatives are now- anxious should be spread before the American people. They insist that article 3 of the protocol cannot be construed to change Spanish sovereignty over the Philippines. They point out the letter of 31. Deleave, the French foreign minister, to the Trench embassies, announcing the execution of the protocol, as an example -f the con Etructlon any trained diplomatist would put un article 3. In this letter 31. Del casse refers to "a temporary occupation of 3IanilJ," clearly showing that there -was no doubt as to the meaning of the article In his mind. The following arc the closing words of J. long conversation had tonight by The Times correspondent with a Spaniard wha is fully qualified to define the Spanish position: "All we expect the Ameilcans to do in regard to the Philippines is to take good guarantees for local government with a view to the protection of the II cs, liber ty, and property of their late allies in the island". "Should their pretensions go further, 1 do not In the least doubt what the ac tional the Spanish Commission will be. The territorial cessions and sacrifices to be made by Spain are duly provlJed for in the protocol. Any further demand will be only taken as an Indication that the United States is seeking a renewal of hos tilities, for Spain must absolutely and firmly refuse." CHAGRINED AT EXPOSURE. Storm (hrr the Philippine Iloiul Ileal Ik l'careil. According to the prearranged program the American Peace Commissioners at Paris will begin the consummation of the Philippine bond deal today. The atti tude of the Spanish Commissioners will be promptly communicated by cable to the White House and the President will he kept in close touch with the progress of the "trade. It was stated at the White House last night that the President passed the day quietly and did not take any further ac tion on the Philippine matter. One of his friends remarked that air. 3IcKinlcy oppeared to be In a reflective mood all day, and his rellcctions may have rc verted,to the Philippine entanglement. Secretaries Alger, Bliss and Wilson, Assistant Secretary ot the Xavy Allen, Adjt. Gen. Corbln and Surg. Gen. Stern berg were at the While House reception lastnlght, and the forthcoming results at Paris were discussed. A former high official of the State Dc-' partment, who has carefuly observed the trend of the Philippine deal, sioke freely about the matter yesterday. He said: Tho excitement In Administration cir cles caused by The Times' expose of the impending disreputable bond deal has not jet subsided. Administration organs are I.IJihey A. Co. tell nil uimles nt while plne lumber. They also have the best substitutes clear spruce and cypress. using all their arts to cover up the crime, but It is easy to see through all their subtleties. Like cuttlefish, they arc now preparing their Ink reservoirs to conceal their course. They admit that America is to take the whole of the Philippine group and will pay the JIO.CCO.CCO price. They then attempt to explain how this sum is to be paid to Spain, and not to the mem bers of the Hanna syndicate, who bought them for a mere song after their chle'f as sured them that they were to'be paid for dollar for dollar by the taxpayers of the United Stutes. ' " "When the time comes for payment, it Is the Intention of these journals to ex plain that 1t is much to the advantage of the United States to have this money paid to our own citizens rather than to the Spanish government. But this clap-trap will not wash. The United States Govern ment does not propose to purchase the Isl ands from American citizens, or from the Hanna syndicate, masquerading as Amer ican citizens. "Being put to extremes to explain the bold scheme to the satisfaction of their readers, these journals have resorted to figures, which cannot lie, though their users can. In order to palliate the Iniqui tous transaction, they give a table derived from Spanish sources and therefore to be taken for what it Is worth, showing that from revenues received from the Philip pines, amounting to J13.199.C62, Spain has expended the sum of J12.90S.2S7 for general expenses, religious and judicial establish ments, public works, etc., leaving a bal ance not expended for the improvement of the Philippines of only J291.3T5. Of course, no Intelligent reader will be fooled by these Spanish statistics. Everyone knows what Spanish "improvements" have been in her colonial possessions nothing more nor lesi than military occupation of terri tory and military usurpation of all rights of individuals not having a finger in the political or army Intrigues of Spain. In other words, every dollar received from the Philippines by Spain has been taken out of ier treasury, but not paid out for hones,, and bona tide Improvements. "The money has gone Into the hands of captain generals, favored contractors, bankrupt nobles, and other sycophants of the tottering throne, and charged up to "improvements" In the Philippines. It was because of the robbery of this and other money that Spain was forceJ to issue bonds payable from the receipts derived from the Islands, which bonds It Is nnw proposed to force the American people to rcucrni ill par. ANARCHISTS AT PONCE. Fixe Arrive Wlltli 1) iiiimltr (nr triilcc tu 'I heir HnnKlltte. Ponce, Porto rtlco, Oct. 30. A great sen sation was caused here Saturday by the arrival of five anarchists on the steamer Philadelphia, from the Spanish JIaln. A search of the baggage by the customs officials revealed a number of cartridges containing dynamite. Four of the men were arrested, but the other one escaped, it I, thought that oth ers of the same gang have arrived in the island, und the authorities are keeping a sharp watch for them. INSISTS ON JANUARY 1. A Final .Note to He -ciit to Spain' Havana Itepreenlntlv c Tndn. Havana, Oct. 30. Tomorrow the Ameri can 3IIIItary Commission will send a note to the Spanish Commission insisting that the evacuation of the island by the Span ish troops must be completed before January 1. This is the last note that will be sent on this subject, and the Americans will not further discuss the mafer. Col. Hecker and Col. Lee will sail for New York tomorrow on the Seneca. THEY TEAR A CLASH. Indian Territory Citizens Want to Prevent a. ColnrrtT IiiviimIom. Perry, O. T., Oct. 30. The while citizens of the Indian Territory arc dev King means of preventing a wholesale influx of colored folk to their territory. They fear a clash between the Indians and the new-comer. Agent Wisdom, In his report, re cently sent to Washington, says: "I have received information that there is liable to be an inllux of negroes into this territory, .which may assume alarm ing proportions and ptovoke a racial Nsue to be deprecated bv. every lover of law and order. In Texas an organization composed of white men exclusively has drlven"the negroes from the small towns to the larger ones of that State. The cities rv'o)t at this phase of the matter, and aro organizing committees of safety for their own protection to drive the ne groes elsewhere." 3Ir. Wisdom is right in his apprehen sions. The negroes are Hocking Into the territory by thousands, many of them thinking they, too. like the Indian freed men. rarr get lands free for homes from the Government. If the courts make the Indians glv'e their freedmen the forty acres each, as slinnUted in th. r.,r,tL. bill, there Is going to be hard times in the muiau lerritcry for a few years. OBJECT TO THE AGENT. Moux Indiana Uelunnii the Ucmnvul or .Mr. CInpp II nd Clcrh. PukIi. Sioux Falls, Oct. 30. Private and relia ble Information was received here today from Pine,' Ridge Indian agency to the effect that the long series of complaints made by the Sioux Indians has culmi nated in the organization of a secret band of mdre than K) young braves, pledged to tfnlte in forcibly removing Agent Clapy'and Clerk Pugh from the reservation" and warning them never to return. Clapp Is an army officer who has been in charge jf thq.ngency for several years, and the Indians and their friends have made several attempts to secure his re moval, as 'the complaints against him have been frequent. The Indians -say that unless Clapp is taken away they will eject him, even at the risk of provoking war. Secretary Bliss has been advised that the only way to prevent bloodshed there is to place another agent in charge at once. MR. AXGER MAKES DENIAL. He Doe,3ot Know When Culm Will lie Occupletl. Secretary Alger last night emphatically denied the statement attributed to him to the effect that November 3 had been agreed upon as the date for tlie, move ment of the first detachment of the Cu ban army of occupation. "Such a statement Is absurd."' said the Secretary. "No time has been fixed for the movement of the army to Cuba. Our plans are nearly perfected for the occu pation of the island and will be carried out as formulated unless Unforeseen diffi culties arise, but these plans do not con template an early movement. The troops are being sent to camps in the Southern States. Does this look like an immediate embarkation for Cuba? We would not be sending them to camp if they were to be sent at once to Cuba. I will say frankly that I do not know v. heir the first de tachment will be ordered to Cuba." White pint Ik becoming: too expen sive for most purposes.

Arulnuldo Spain Land Mx TIioumiuiiI Rifle, a Million ItoitutlH or Ainmnnltlon and Eleven .Machine Gun at Hollo. 3Ianila, Oct. 30. As .was predicted In The Tlmes's dispatches, the Insurgents have submitted gracefully to the second demand of Gen. Otis, the American mili tary commander here, that they retire from tho territory included in the capitu lation of the Spaniards. There never was any real danger of a conflict between the insurgents and Americans. That question was settled be fore the rebels decided to acquiesce peace ably to the demand made upon them In September. The natural Filipino di'atori ness was the gravest cause of anxiety. It appeared to be Impossible to convince them that the Americans would surely act when the time for their withdrawal expired, and they waited until nightfall of the last day before "they began to leave the forbidden territory and march to Bailee and Egandacan. They had no no tion of lighting, but were just maneuver ing. Gen. Otis understood this and con sequently there was no conflict. Although blockhouses i. 6, G, and 7 are part or the American lines, the Insurgents occupy them without any objection from Gen. Otis, the understanding being that they will withdraw when required. They held blockhouse 11 also, but Gen. Ander son posted a guard outside and stopped food that was Intended for the insur gents, whereupon they withdrew. )o Dnncrr "t Conlllcl. The Insurgent question is now consid ered practically settled, so far as the possibility of a conflict at present is con cerned. The Filipinos undoubtedly fall to understand the American attitude and mistake complaisance for timidity. This may ultimately necessitate the adminis tration of a thrashing to them. Therein probably lies the greatest danger of the whole problem. Admiral Dewey has. shown considerable firmness in dealing with the rebels. He still detains the launches he seized last week. A gunboat belonging to the Fili pinos came to Cavitt on Thursday, con voying a caltleship. Admiral Dewey seiz ed both vessels, but released them on Fri dav. That detention was enough, how ever, to give the Filipinos, a good scare. Admiral Dewey la much displeased with AgulnaIdo"s recent actions. Agulnaldo peiceives his mistake, and he has issued a decree permitilng all foreigners, except Spaniards, to travel, anywhere without passes, provided they are not armed. Incidentally. GenTOtlsV contention with the insurgents has resulted In an exact definition of what Spain surrendered on August 13. Iteported llehel Jsuccemen. The Insurgents report great success on the Island of Panay. They say they have Uoilo surrounded, but your correspondent doutis this. The Spanish transport Buenos Ayres ar rived at Hollo recently with supplies. It is reported that the landed C,000 rllles, a million rounds of ammunition, and eleven machine guns. This is a curious proceed ing, considering Spain's protest against the Americans sending re-enforcements to 3Ianila. It throws some light on the Spanish proposition to exchange prisoners with Agulnaldo. Tle Spaniards are dis cussing the possibility of shipping 6,000 prisoners, now In Aguinaldo's hands, to Hollo, when they are released. If these men were supplied with the arms landed by the Buenos Ayres they would practi cally make a new army. The exchange negotiations are now awaltlng the action of Gen. RIos, the gov ernor of the Vi-ayas, or central Philip pine Islands, and ait interim Spanish gov ernor general of the whole group. He will undoubtedly favor the exchange, but Agulnaldo knows about the receipt of arms at Uoilo, and it Is very likely that the negotiations will fall through, as he Is altogether too clever to let the Span lards get hold of troops who could be used against him, HlKliteen Hundred SIcU Men. The health of the troops here continues unsatisfactory, hut the climatic conditions are changing for the better. The ap proach of the dry season Inspires the hope that there will soon be an improvement In the sick report. The physicians' returns show about 1.SO0 sick men. There were eleven deaths last week. Gen. Otis has issued a general ordfr, permitting the surgeons in charge of regi ments or Independent battalions to spend 30 cents per day for delicacies for each man on the sick list. This will probably result in a reduction In the number of sick. The saloons in the city continue to in crease in numbers, correspondingly In creasing tlie work of the doctors. Arrangements have been concluded be tween Gen. Otis and Gen. RIos under which coasting vessels under either the American or Spanish flag may go to any of the principal ports of the Islands. SpnulMh XevvMpnper Suppressed. The Spanish newspaper I-a Voz Uspanol has been suppressed by the military com mander. It has persisted in printing vio lent attacks on the Americans in the style that was popular here among the Spanish organs before the outbreak of the war. It was warned to stick to the truth, but the warning had no effect, and It finally printed an outrageous lie, manufactured out of whole cloth, about an Imaginary fight between the Ameri cans and insurgents at Cavite. Then the editor was arrested and the paper sup pressed. Tho transport City of Para sailed for San Francisco Thursday. She took 3Iajor Whipple, custodian of tlie .public funds; Capt. Godsby, of Oregon and several others who are on sick leave. Lieut. Braunersreuther has been ap pointed captain of the port, vice Capt. Glass, who is sick. Capt. Nudgett, of North Dakota, has been appointed col lector of internal revenue, vice 3Iajor Be ment, who is on the sick Jlst. and Col. Colton. of Nebraska, made collector of customs. Gen. Whlttler has been ordered to pro ceed to Paris in connection with the peace negotiations. The court-martial in the case of two Nebraska officers, who were charged with trying to loot two old mortars from Fort Santiago, ended yesterday. The verdict is probably one of acquittal. It villi roNt j on nothing: to Mr LIbbey & Co.'s stock of select .spruce and cj press lumber almost equal white. plneT QUESTIONS UNSETTLED. Muck Work. Retnitlnn for Amerlcnn Canadtan CommlnHlon. Joseph Pope,-jinder-secretary of state of Ottuwa, arrived In Washington last evening. He comes to arrange prelimi naries on the part of the Canadian mem bers of the American-Canadian Commis sion, tho adjotlrned session of which will reconvene in this city within a few days. 3Ir. .Pope was" seen at the Shoreham last night. He U a large man, with a florid complexion, genial In his manner, and candid though discreet in his way of speaking. He did not permit any in formation concerning the deliberations of the Commission nt Quebec to escape him. Although he did not sa'y so, he gave out the Inference that none of the disputed questions has as yet been settled. He said that a gTat deal had been pub lished about tho work of the Commission at Quebec, and a great deal of matter had been sent out over tho world. AH this, thoug'h, was mere conjecture. Tho men who had written about tho con ferences simplyjjicsfed at results. No statement had In en officially glveji out, and he believed that none of the mem bers was so indiscreet or so undiplomatic as to, talk of the work of the Commission to outsiders. It has at various times been reported that the Comnihsion had reached deci sions on some of the questions at Issue, notably the lumber and fisheries ques tions. 3Ir. Pope would not say that these propositions had been determined. He did not know where the sittings of the Commission are to be held In Wash ington, saying that ho presumed the American member would arrange this detail, as the Canadian members had at Quebec. It Is probable that 31 r. Pope will call on Secretary Hay today, and that later he will be Introduced to the President. DEATHS XN MANILA. Tvvele Are- Heiiortetl to Have Oc curred .Slnef- Oefober 211.

The vessel is In excellent shape and the wrecking company believes that she will make the trip safely. Now that the Infanta 3iarla Teresa has gone, the wrecking company will devote Its attention to raising the' cruiser Reina Mercedes, which was sunk at the mouth of the harbor, under the walls of 3Iorro Castle. The large nnd small guns have all been taken off her and are now on the wharf here awaiting shipment, to gether with a quantity of other ordnance that was taken from other Spanish ships.

The Cubans arc charired with stealing Government stores from the cargo of the Panama, some of the missing stores having bttn found In their possession. Complaints to Gen. Wood of thefts from the United States quartermaster's and commL'sary supplies stored on the wharves have been so numerous lately that orders have been Issued to quadruple the guards. The sentinels have been In structed to keep their rifles loaded and to shoot anyone caught within a dead line that has been marked about the wharves. It is no secret that supplies are stolen from the wharves by Cubans and taken to the camps In the hills. Barrios, the sentinel belonging to tho Second Immunes, who, on August 20, shot and killed a Cuban whom he de tected stealing stores, and who refused to halt when ordered to do so, has been acquitted by the general court-martial before which he was tried. For six weekj after Barrios killed the Cuban there was little thieving about the wharves. The stealing has Increased lately and It is estimated that the Gov ernment has lost 30,tXC in this way in the past six weeks. ANTI-DREYFUS HARANGUES.

The Kntry Into .!rrnitleni Formally Mltde Through the Jaffa flute. Jerusalem, Oct. 30. The arrival of Em peror William at Haifa lost in effect, owing to mismanagement by the Turkish officials. The Turkish squadron did not Teach the port in lime to salute his majesty, and after waiting four hours on board the Imperial yacht Hohenzollern, tho emperor and his party went ashore without any salutes. Salutes were eventually fired from the fortress at St. Jean d'Acre some hours after the party had left. Soon after the departure a cruiser, with the Turkish suite on beard, arrived at Haifa. The arrival of the parly at Jerusalem was marked by picturesque splendor. As the cavalcade approached, the sightseers crowded lo meet it, many of them waving banners. The party reached their camp in the northern suburbs of the city at 11 o'clock Saturday morning. After breakfast they formally entered the tlty through Jaffa Gate, guns meanwhile roaring and a Turkish band plalng the German an them.

SENATOR PLATT'S ANXIETY He UrjiCM Thnr Action He Poatpuucd Until After the Election How the Paper Were Reviewed IilrnlK of the Special Hxnmlticr 3lndo Known sonic Xeiv Developments. President McKinley is known to bo sorely perplexed over the Carter court martial case. This perplexity became more marked after the visit of Senator Piatt to the White House last 3Ionda. The papers in the case were received oy the President from Secretary Alger iu the forenoon of that day. A few hours) later the New York senator called upon the Secretary of War and. learning that the papers had been taken to the Execu tive 3Ianslon, he hurried over to see 3Ir. 3IcKInley about them. Senator Piatt and the accused, Cipt. O. 31. Carter, or theEngineer Corps, aro intimate friends, and the senator's visit to the White House was what his friends are pleased to term "an errand of mercy." His purpose was to save his friend Car ter from the official guillotine, to which he had been justly sentenced to expiate his offense. As the President would not make a direct promise of clemency, Piatt urged with great persistency that the final disposition of the case be deferred t least until after the elections. It was stated several days ago in The Times, while the Carter papers were on their circuitous rounds from office to of fice, from official tx official, and from de partment to dei jrtment. that ax a part of their circumnavigation they had been "re viewed"' at Secretary Alger's request :y a former United States Senator. It nonr develops that the fjrmer senator Is no iesa a personage than 3Ir. Edmunds act ing as epecial attorney for the Depart ment of Justice. The papers went to him for an "expert review and opinion" rrom the Department of Justice, whither they had been seat by Secretary Alger, who appears to be ex erting every means at his command to save Carter. From Edmunds they went back to Attorney General Griggs, thence to 31r. Alger, and after remaining In his possession several days round their way to the Executive Mansion las.. 3Iondav. It appears that the Carter papers having fceen four times "finally reviewed" tirst by Judge Advocate General Lleber, uf the army, then by Secretary Aiger. nxt by Attorney General Griggs, ami again by former Senator Edmunds are now in the hands of President 3IcKinIey jwaAmg the fifth final review. As a result of 3Ir. Edmunds-S review, it is stated he has discovered alleged Irregu larities in the record of the trial The most serious of these. In his opinion. Is that certain papers held" to" be "irivrfte" were improperly admitted as evidence at the trial or Carter. The "private" papers referred to ar said to be what are known as reialne I vouchers. They are. In fact, duiilicate vouchers, one voucher going to the War Department and the other being held by the officer who pays out the monev. Th retained voucher is held as a sexni-ofticia! paper, but becomes official the moment the original voucher Is lose or de-irovtd. Army officers cout the idea that the admission of these papers In duplicate was irregular. An officer of the arm. who was for merly a personal friend of Capt. Carter, stated Saturday that the verdict of guiltv vvas a just one, and should stand. Car ter and his Influential friends were given every opportunity and latitude to disprove the charges, but utterly failed to do s... The statement was made yesterdav that promlnenc railroad men in the Sojin aro implicated, and will be drawn Into the meshes before the case is finally disposed of. This has brought into the matter another element of Influence from the Southern States. It was further expected that the Pru dent would reach a conclusion in thi mat ter on Saturday, but it was unnoun. ed yesterday that consideration of the u had given way to more immediate and urgent matters. Whether the President will take up the Carter papers todav and dispose of them could not be learned last night. After Special Attorney of the Depart ment of Justice Edmunds had drawn up his final review and findings rollowhuc the indorsement of.Judge Advocate Gen eral Lleber or the army, another Indo'e ment was made on the papers- bv- ,,.. retary Alger. It Is now stated tlutt .h Alger Indorsement recommends a mitiga tion of the court-martial sentence This sentence, it is said, pronounced ctp Carter guilty and sentenced him to be confined in prison, dismi.-sed from the army nnd to be published and placarded at his place of residence. Should the President decide to confine the sentence to dismissal from the arm-, omitting the imprisonment and plaiard ing clauses, it is stated that the vase will be vigorously discussed in Congress wlun the river and harbor bill comes up fur action.
