Iron and Coal Shares Fall Twenty
i Five Points and Other Securi
ties Are Weak.
¦ BERLIN, June 10.— Last week was the
worst the Bourse had known for t,wenty
years. Many of the most substantial iron
and coal shares fell more than 25 points.
From Thursday conditions were very pan
icky, with phenomenal declines In both
lines of securities.' The banks forced
many weak customers to sell their hold
ings, the public thus suffering great
losses. The financial press refers to It as
"black week."
An impetus was given to the panic by
reports from the United States of the
overproduction of the iron market there
together with shutting down of mills and
reductions In prices. The situation Is
commented upon here as' foreshadowing
an Invasion of the German markot. With
in a week a first-class Westphallan firm
has purchased 12,000 tons of American
open hearth Iron from a London house.
It also appears that American foundry
iron has been offered in Berlin for £5
In all this the financial press sees the
danger of American competition already
becoming realized. A number of manu
facturers In Western Germany have
formed an organization for combating
American enterprise in iron and steel
eoods. -.
Thc\ Sllesian iron market Is also report
ed decidedly weak. ,
The decline of coal and iron shares
spread to other securities and other in
dustrials lost rather heavily. Bank shares
fell off also. The money market showed
no improvement and private discount
rose at the end of the week. Exchange
rates, however, tend in Germany's favor.

Owing to Absence of Military the
Event Was Not So Spectacular

PARIS, June 10.— The Grand Prix de

The event did not have the spectacular
features which characterized it last year,
when cavalry, infantry and police lined
every artery of the race course.
To-day a single company of infantry,
with the tiSual Republican Guard and a
few police constituted the only force in
evidence. Politics was not in the air. for
the presence of AI. I^oubet. the President,
crrated no more attention than do hts

American jockey In the race. Bona Rosa,

La Morinlert! was a warm favorite, but
was back in the ruck at the finish. It
seemed to hi Semendrla's race' from the
moment ihe flag fell. She jumped into
the lead at full running, but quickly had
her mouth open, as her jockey pulled
hard, drawing her into easy running and

WASHINGTON. June 10.— The naval, ap
propriation bill just passed for the ensu
ing fiscal year is the largest in the history
of the navy during the time of peace. It
exceeds that of last year by $12,740,347 19,
and this rate of progress is likely to reach
the one hundred million dollar mark in
less than five years and to exceed that of
Great Britain in ten years. The chief in
terest in the present appropriation cen.
ters, of course, In the increase of the
navy, and there was but little friction be
tween the Senate and House to come to
an agreement on this subject.
Authority Is given to construct two bat
tle-ships of 13,500 tons each, three armored
cruisers of 13.000 tons each, three protect
ed cruisers each of S000 tons and five Hol
land submarine torpedo boats. The aggre
gate cost of these thirteen vessels Is
$29,150,000, exclusive of armor and guns,
and $13,540,699 Is made available toward
construction of hulls and machinery.
A further sum of 14.000,000 Is allowed for
armor and guns, discretionary power be
ing given to the Secretary of the Navy to
purchase armor for the vessels already
under construction at $545 p€;r ton and to
contract for the new vessels' armor at

Provisions are made for extensive Im
provements at the several navy yards;
the floating dock at Havana is to be pur
chased for 1275,000, which, with that at
Algiers and four others In course of con
fctruction, will go far toward making the.
docking facilities of the navy correspond
with the requirements of the ships. There
are strong indications that the naval sta
tion nnd drydock at Port Royal will be
abandoned, and the Secretary of the
Navy is authorized to select and recom
mend another suitable site in the State
of South Carolina. A board of naval offi
cers Is likewise to determine the deslra
billtv of locating and building a drydock

MANILA: June lO.-Judge William H.
Taft and his colleagues of the Philippine
Commission were beset during their first
week in Manila by a "multitude of callers
of all nationalities, professions and Inter
ests, who presented a bewildering assort
ment of recommendations touching mili
tary and civil policies. The Commission
ers maintained the altitude of un
prejudiced listeners. They admit that,
while they anticipate an enormous task,
the complexity and- difficulty of - the
problems and conditions are well nigh
staggering. .
They find General MacArthur adminis
tering civil and military affairs in a way
that is universally popular. The Filipino
party, embracing prominent insurrec
tionists who accepted American rule
through force 'of circumstances, is al
ready making the old proposition of au
tonomy under an American protectorate.
Judge Taf t s utterances Indicate a con
ciliatory policy toward the natives. He
has conferred with the high army officers,
some of whom strongly urge that a larger
army is necessary to suppress the Insur
rection, believing that civil government
will be' impossible until the rampant re
bellion in the southern districts of Luzon,
In the extreme northern provinces of the
island and in the Visayas, except Negros,
is crushed.
American experience with the natives
discourages the hope of honest govern
ment through them until a generation or
more have eradicated the results of
Spain's tutelage. . : ,-" ¦¦¦-•- -v^/.
A large proportion of the provincial
officials already installed have proven
treacherous, while the native police and
officials here in Manila are living on a
scale of luxury «suspiciously dispropor
tionate to their salaries. Charges against
native Judges for failing to account for
the thousands of dollars received in fines
are under investigation.
At present the governmental alterna
tives rre the army on the one hand and
anarchy on the other. General Otis' plan
of municip.il government is being Inaugu
rated in the principal towns of central
Luzon and in parts of the Visayas; but the
Filipinos persist in thinking that the ques
tion whether the United States will retain
the Philippines is still open, and some
local leader? ask that municipal elections
be postponed until after the Presidential
The future Elate of the church is a
leading question In the minds of many,

stand in supporting the request of the
friars to be established in their old

up the ladder. There in a shelf of the
rocks they found an insurgent camp,
whence a pmall gruard of Filipinos had
scuttled on their approach, leaving all
their personal effects. Hidden ill the for

palm lt-aves. so ingeniously constructed
that a stranger might have passed within

other approaches like the one Funston

ever, that none of the really important
»=»>cret papers were found, that among
them was correspondence with foreign
Governments and letters from prominent
anti-imperialists. Including Hon. W. J.
Bryan and Senator Hoar. All of these,
he says, were cent to Hongkong last Sep
tember for safe keeping in the hands of
the Junta. The purport of the letters
from anti-lmperiallPt?, according to ' his
recollection, was that the Filipinos should
adhere to their demands for independence,
and they would eventually be sustained
by the American voters.
BILOXI, Miss., June 10.— Two negroe9
were lynched and their bodies burned
early this morning at Mississippi City. It
is not absolutely certain that either vic
tim was 'guilty. They were Henry Askew
and Ed Russ, held as suspects. Law
abiding people condemn the lynching.
District Attorney White had promised
that the prisoners would be ' brought to
trial on Monday, and yesterday at a mass
meeting the citizens promised to support
him. Sheriff Ramsay, in order to protect
Askew and Russ from mob violence,
moved them secretly to a bath-house.
After midnight the mob overpowered a
deputy sheriff on guard, dragged the
negroes away, tied them back to back and
swung them up to the same tree. Their
bodies were riddled with bullets, and after
death ensued ¦were set on tire. The nau
seating smell of burning flesh could be
detected for miles around.
The Sheriff reached the scene after the
execution and saw the members of the
mob, but made no attempt to arrest any
of them.

BUTTE, Mont., June 10.— The Hon. Wn- '
liam A. Clark, who resigned his position
as United States Senator for Montana and
who was immediately appointed to the va
cancy by the acting Governor, reached
home this afternoon and was given a tre
mendous ovation. When the train pulled
into the Northern Pacific . depot several
thousand people were waiting, and as the
Senator stepped from the car he was
greeted with cheers. A band of music
had been eng?.?ed. When the Senator had
been almost carried to his carriage the
crowd formed in line and. headed by tne
band, led the procesion up town. It was
an Impromptu affair, but the enthusiasm
made up for the lack of organization. It
is estimated 4000 men of all classes—mer
chants, miners, workingrmen and profes
sional men — made the Ions march from
the depot to the Senator's home, while
many times that number lined the streets
along the route and added their cheers
to those of the marchers. Arriving at his
home, which had been handsomely dec
orated, the Senator managed to make his
way through the press of people to the
veranda, where he addressed tne crowd.
Among other things he said:
"I was elected by the representatives of
this State as their free choice 'for the po
sition of United States Senator. Ever
since that I have been harassed by the
most devilish persecution that man has
ever been subjected to. It was my in
tention to devote my time and labor to
thifi work. There came to Washington,
however, a gang of perjurers, who dissem
inated their vile falsehoods, and found a
committee that was willing- to listen to
them and spread their perjuries to the
world. I was not allowed in many cases
to Introduce evidence to refute these
charges.' . v.i'
Mr. Clark gave individual instances of
this. Continuing, he said:
"When this man Chandler had bulldozed
the committee Into reporting against me,
after consultation with my friends I with
drew from the Senate. At that time there
happened to be a man In Helena at the
head of the State ¦government -who 'was
fearless and had the courage to do what
was right. I did not know whom he
would appoint, but I knew it would be
some one who would be a credit to the
State, and not one of this gang of cut
throats. There is no question of the va
lidity of that appointment."
He said he had not tried to take hi*
seat under that appointment because he
understood some or the members of the
Committee on Privleges and Elections in
tended to adopt bulldozing tactics If the
matter were pressed at this time, and as
Congress was anxious to adjourn an
agreement was reached to let the matter
go over until the next session.
..*L\ n s P Ite *>f th ' s agreement." he added,
"this man Chandler arose in the Senate a
few days befor6 adjournment and asked
for an appropriation to enable his com
mittee to Investigate this appointment
Not a single member of the Senate would
champion the request"
In conclusion Mr. Clark said: "I want
to say to you that you have a battle
yet to fight. Do you understand the im
portance of this battle? (Cries of -we
do 'o ) ,W. n you sta nd up and fight with
Smvi? r f% of ' We r 1 "' and cfieers) £

In their balance slutt for 1859-1900 the
insurgent Minister cf Finance suites that
during the years 1SV6-97 the expenses of
the Spanish government in administering
affairs amounted to $17,474,O2'J (Mexican),
but. thanks to the capacity of the revolu
tionary leaders, the total exix?nditures of
th« insurgent government for last year
only amounted to $6.:»42.4j7. All this econ
omy was effected while the Manila custom
house, a. most lucrative source of in
come, was in the hands of. the Americans.
It was promised that as soon as the rebels
gained possession of Manila, which would
be in a few weeks, they could manifestly
reduce the rate of taxation. In the mean
time money was needed, and it was in
cumbent on all good patriots to pay all
the tax-collectors, ask of them. With a
lew words describing Aguinaldo's glory
and invulnerability, and the good times
cominer to everybody when the Americans
were linaJiy driven from the islands, the
Minister ot Finance accounts for his in
come as follows:

and forced payments not included in tne
other sources of income.

The statement shows a deficit of some j
$2**i. j
The insurgent government undoubtedly
handled considerable money last year, but '
whether they collected $6.009.<*«J Mexican j
is not known to outsiders. Their expenses ,
have been specially heavy in the matter |
of nrnip. Filibusters and others have made :

Assassination Planned.
The KTeat store of Insurgent documents
discovered by General Kuninton, together,
with some interesting papers which Cap
tain Smith found In the pos.:<ession of Gen
oral Pantaleon Garcia, throw int;ies-iing
Fide lights upon the Kilijjlno government.
Mo»*t iini»ortant of the lot is Agruinaldo's :
plan for the uprising in Manila, which
was drawn by him at Malolos in his own ;
hajid writing, in the Tagalog language,
and bears date January ». 1SS;*. Pinned to '
the document was a. translation Into-Span
ish, done in the hand of Buencamino.
Agulnaldo'p order was addressed to his
'•valiant Sandatlhani*," or bolomen. When
the word for the uprising was given they
were to slay all American soldiers in Ma
nila, The inhabitants were to repair to
the hou5e top*, whence they were to hurl
down upon the soldiers heavy furniture
and any iron implements they might
have, heated redhol. They were a!?o to
have ready in their hous#s hot water
which was to be thrown upon passing sol- !
dier*. or squirted at them from bamboo
f-Trinpet*. The women and children were
exhorted to help in preparing the water
and boiling oil, which they were to paKs
out to the men for use. Afterward the
bnlotnen were to run through the streets*,
slashing Americans wherever they met
them, They wore instructed not to stop
to pick up the guns of soldiers they killed;
those could be collected afterward. The
bolomen were warned to restrain them- i
selves from the temptation of looting, be
cause, as Aguinaldo explained, he was
particularly desirous to make good in the
eyes of foreign nations his* assertions that
the Filipinos wore a disciplined and civil- j
•zed people. Particular injunctions were
jrivrn for protecting the bank?, even the
Spanish bank.
.Other interesting papers related to tho !
purchase and importation of arm?. One i
letter concerning a consignment of j
Mausers stated that the German Govern
ment would not allow them to be shipped
from the country without a payment of
$10 on each gun. Filibustering must have
been a costly enterprise to the revolu
tionary government It appears that- one

Among the items Included in the bill
of the gentlemen who engineered the deal
was one of $4OW for hotel bills in Hong
kong and throe other expenditures of sev
eral thousand explained as "squeeze,"
which Is Interpreted a» l<rib*>f> to officials
to keep their eyes closed. The filibuster i
was a man whose name has frequently
ligtire<i in the papers in .connection with
this business, while other letters indicate
that an American Consul at a Chinese
port sold s*»v«Tal shipments of arms to |
Aguinaldo. In a letter from Howard Bray, i
nn Englishman belonging to the Hong
kong Junta, Aguinaldo is warned that
Kpencer Prutt. the American Consul at
Singapore, is "a d — d traitor." Aguinaldo's ,
letter book contain? copies of letters to i
s:ll sorts of people. One to the Emperor
of Japan accompanied a gift of a sword, I
which was «ent as a token of apprecia
tion of the ••kindness" shown by the Jap- '
anese Government to the Filipinos, the i
nature of the klndnesj being unexplained.
Prominent Men Implicated.
.These documents the authorities are
rending to th«- War Department and they
nre reticent ubout the contents. The pub- '
Uralion in the Manila papers that letters
wore found implicating prominent business '
lirtns in the city is said by the gossips at
the English Hub to have brought great
uneasiness to sundry guilty consciences I
There has long been a suspicion here that
tot insurgents would not have been able
to maintain communication with and col
lect taxes from the outlying islands with
out the connivance of some of the big
shipping or commercial houses. Records
of contributions by Manila firms to the
insurrection appear, but these are not
surprising, because foreigners in Manila
considered It cccessary to make such con
tributions by way of insurance upon their
properties in the provinces.
The storage of these documents gives
a good illustration of Filipino Ingenuity.
