OUR WASHINGTON LETTER' Our Weekly Correspondence From the Nation's Capital City. CENSUS OF MANILA do ---- - - --bu The Battleship Illinois Made a a High Record for Speed..Okla. homa Indian Lands, fey rh Washington, D. C.--The news in th the specials form Pekin convey to the official mind here the belief that what is known as the British-Ameri- to can plan of settling the indemnity th question is making headway,and tha it will in the end be adopt'd as the only feasible scheme. The firm atti tude of the United States in declin. ing to enter into a joint guarantee of the enormous bond issue is believed to have had its effect in including the ministers to accept the British-Amer loan proposal. It is certain that any re movement toward the settlement of m the indemnity question must result in re unanimity to be effective. Although be often mentioned, the details of the b British plan have not heretofore been th given, and they were learned Satur- Pf day from an authoritative source to ti] be'as follows: B' The Chinese government is to issue in bonds to each of the powers to the b amount of the indemnity due each. These bonds are to bear 4 per cent in- O( terest with a clause providing half per cent for a.mortization. Certain of m the Chinese revenues,not specifloially tl designated in the proposition are to be earmarked for the liquidation of the bonds. A committte appointed by sl the foreign powers is to take charge u of questions relating to the revenue t thus earmarked, and the committee is a to arrange details by which the revs- ti anues are to be applied on tbs bonds. In ease of default on the bonds, the default is to be to the committee and not to the several powers. The fore- C going is in substance the entire pro position, but later it was proposed in addition that the period of the bonds be thirty years, and that they be is- o sued in instalhments. In this form F the proposition stood up to within a a few days ago, but it is not known in Is what particular it may have bden a modified by the ministers. t THE BATTLESHIP ILLINOIS. r Of even greater speed than first sup I posed, the battleship Illinois is justly t entitled to wear the naval broom at her masthead. Her official speed, as determined by the board of inspeo Stion and survey, after considering the tidal corrections reported is 17.45 knots per hour. Rear Admiral R. D. Evans, president of the board, offi I oially communicated this information B to Secretary Long. This record is .14 knots better than that estimated im mediately after her trial and without taking tidal condition into considera tion. Secretary Long is highly gratified at the high speed made by the Illi nois. The secretary believes in a bat tleship having as mucoh speed as pos sible, taking into consideration her armor and armament and coal carry Sing capacity. The province of a bat tleship is to fight, not to run, the see - retary holds, and he has consistently advocated a policy of as heavy arma ment and as much protection as can be obtained upon a given displace ment. The six latest battleships con tracted for under Mr. Long's admin. lstration are designed to produce eighteen knots speed,but by reason of machinery improvements no diminn . tion of battery power or protection has occurred. As a matter of fact all these vessels carry more powerful batteries than the Illinois class. Comparison tof the Illinois with for seign battleshipe shows that taking into consideration armor and arma. ment, she is superior to any of her tonnage in foreign navieas. Her speed is less than British battleships, of a thousand tons greater displacement, Sbut their speeds are often determined by the patent log and are therefore , ficotitions. CENSUS OF MANILA. Manila papers received at the war deportment contain articles of more or less importance concerning that city and the Philippines. The Manila Times give the result of a census t taken by Lieutenant H. L. Gilchrist for the board of health completed about the first of May. This censue gives the population of Manila at d 944,982, divided as follows: SFilipinos, 181,861i Chinese, 51,567; L, Americans, 8 562; Spaniards, 2,885; other nationalities, 960. These fgur's do not include men belonging to the wh United States. There are 18,683 A buildings in the city, of which 8,789 thr are good, 1,135 bad and 1,472 small we and 12,117 classed as shacks. aig A sensational story is published mil that a Chinese contractor has been C feeding his employees on glandered No horses which is said to account for nil the spread of considerable sickness in 3e the vicinity of Manila. The board of health is endeavoring Ra to obtain information which will en- Gr able it to take measures to prevent 'P1 the spread of cattle diseases in the In island, as such diseases have proved of very detrimental to the natives of the islands. on' REPORT ON CANAL. Admiral Walker's report on the isthmian canal will soon be ready for Oa transmission to the president. The report is more favorable to the Pana ma project than was the preliminary report of the commission. The mem bers of the commission now increase lt by about $4,000,000 their estimate of of the present value of the Panama pro perty. In round figures, they think the Panama plant worth $40,000,000. But they point out that this does not TI include the $240,000,000 of stock held lit by the French people. In other words,if the United States B could buy the Panama plant for $40,- a 000,000, in the opinion of the com- Bi mission, it would be a bargain. But of this is known to be impossible. It is asderted by friends of the gi Nicaragua route that a powerful con spiracy has been formed to "hold up" the canal enterprise, partly in of the interest of the Panama people *a and partly at the instigation of the a transcontinental railway interests. Indeed, it is charged that these two interests have virtually conmbined,and Hl that they have among their support ers some of the most prominent men p, in the republican party. re OKLAHOMA INDIAN LANDS. a Lone Wolf and twelve or fifteen t other Indians, representing the n Kiowa, Comanche and Apache tribes appeared before the secretary of the ' interior and made verbal protest r' against the opening of any part of their lands in Oklahoma to settle ment under the act of the latest ses sion of congress. They were intro- b duced by Judge Springer. Several of P them declared that the agreement for Y the cession of their lands had not been secured by legitimate methods. Judge Springer presented the com plaint of the Indians in detail. Sec retary Hitchcock told the Indians that he had only received them as a matter of courtesy, and that under no circumstances could he consider their presentation while their ease was pending in the courts. SENTENCE IMPOSED ON IMPEY. The loss of ten numbers in his grade and reduction of his pay to furlough pay for two years and to be pubilcly reprimanded is the sentence imposed by courtmartial upon Cap tain Robert E. Impey at present sta tiond at Mare Island navy yard. The captain was charged with scandalous conduct in having represented to a Sdentist that his bill mast be reduced because it required the approval of I the treasury offoers,whereas this was a purely personal matter. Seoretary Long has remitted the part of the sentence recommending that Captain SImpey should be placed on furlough Sfor two years, "not because of any - clemency which Captain Impey is re. 1 garded as meriting, but for the rea leon that the department does not want I him to remain in idleness for two years when the services of all officers are required on active duty." gLITTLE DIFFIOULTY EXPECTED It is learned that when the Ouban commission was in Washington dele gates informed Seo'y Root that they did not think it would be possible to have the Cuban government organ ized before February, owing to the e fact that certain procedures must be had under their new constitution. The opinion is expressed at the war r department that there will be little e or no difficullty in effecting a change it from American to Cuban oivil con a trol. The civil service which General 'o Wood has oragnized is largely oom st posed of Cubans, and it is believed d that the new government will utilize ,s this machoinery. ,t Seoretary Root has issued an order which goes into etfeot on May 1 next t; adding English literature, algebra 5; and plane trigonometry to the present 4s course at West Point.

Flint, Mich.--The Pierre Marquette passenger train due here at 9 o'clock struck a double carriage at the Ham ilton avenue crossing in the suburb of Oak Park and instantly killed four FR people. Major George Bnokingham, Flint ; Miss Abbte Buckingham, Flint Mrs. Thomas Appleby, Adrian; Mrs. Wil liam Humphrey, Adrian, were killed. Several factory buildings adjoin the track at Hamilton avenue and prevent a clear view of the track. Major Buokingham drove directly in front of the train, which was traveling at a high speed. The pilot of the en gine . broken by the force of the pra oollisi and the bodies of two of the ing ladies, .rribly mangled, were found so' on it.
