Washington Letter.
Special to the Nkwb
Tbe politicians of all parties are a
fraid of the Philippine Islands question.
That has been made plain by the de
clinations to accept the highly honor
able position of P. -ace Commissioner
which the President hasroceived. Evi
dently the biff politians think the
chance of the treaty not meeting the
popular approval outweigbts tbe honor
of serving as one of the commissioners
to negotiate the treaty. Secretary Day
who will closo bis public career as one
of tbe Peace Commissioners, bad no such
fear, because be is not politician and
does not expect to become one, and nev
er would have held office except to
oblige his personal friend, President
McKlnley. In choosing Ambassador
Hay as Secretary Day's successor, the
President has taken another Secretary
of State who is not a politician, but
whose experience in the diplomatic line
has been wide wide, ranging from Se
cretary of an American legation and As
sistant Secretary of State to Ambassa
dor to Great Britain. Tbe President
had no trouble la selecting men for tbe
Cuban and Porto Kican Commissions,
because, being strictly military, no po
litical question was involved; be only
had to issue orders to bave them obeyed.
The officers chosen were, for Cuba, Gen.
Wade, Admiral Sampson, and Oen. But
ler; for Porto Ktcu, Gen. Brooke, Admir
al Schley, and Oen. Gordon. Tbe
Peace Commission is not to meet, at i
Paris, until October 1, but tbe President
will auuounoe the three American Com
missioners who are to act with Mr. Day
and Senator Luis, who have already
been chosen, as soon as be can get en
of sufficient prominence to accept tbe
Consular reports show that tbe exam
ple of tbe U. S. and England, in em
ploying women in tbe public service, is
being followed in Germany and in Nor
way to a considerable extent. In Ger
many the employment of women is so
far confined to the postal service clerks
and postmasters at the smaller offices.
Tbe highest Salaries paid women post
masters in Gurmany is 8285 a year, with
an allowance of Sliy a year for rent. In
Norway women are employed in postal
and railway service. They act as rail
road station supervisors, government
telegraph operators, and in some instan
ces even do tbe work of luggage men.
Although nothing official has been
said on tbe subject, it is known that the
Preaident is vury glad that Dewey and
Merritt captured Manila before tbe
news of the cessation of hostilities
reached them. It la generally believed
in Washington that our possession of
Manila and tbe Island of Luzou, of
wbicb it is the Capital, will be perman
ent, notwithstanding tbe official state
meut of tbe Spanish government that it
expects to regain control of tbe Pbilip
p.ne Islands. Inasmuch as Admiral
Dewey and Gen Merritt captured Man
ila the day after the peace agreement
was signed, many supposed at first that
it would not count, but tbe military ex
perls promptly brought out the articles
of war, which provide that no armistice
or even a treaty of peace is biudiug upon
officials in command of armed torces un
til an olfiial notice of the same has heeu
sent to them. It must have bum at
leant tbree days after the capture of
Manila before tbe official notification
of the signing of the temporary agree
ment of peace, by Spain and the U. S.,
at Washington, could possibly have
reached Drwey and Merritt. So that
not only w ill the capture of Manila
count but so will all tbe captures made
by the ships of Dewey's fleet which
were sent u raise tbe American flag up
on other islanls of tbe Philippine
group, and inc. dentally to capture a few
Spanisn gunboats known to be bid in
obure harbors.
