PEACE IS ASSURED
PROVISIONS OF THB PROTOCOL
HAVE BEEN PASSES UPON
SPAIN CANNOT BE COMPELLED TO
SELL AMERICA A CAROLINE
REGARDED AS FRIENDLY
Spanish C 'ommlttsloJner*- Cunningly
Seek, to Learn Desires of Amer
icana "Without Exposing- What
Spain Ia Willing- to Concede
Some of the Difficulties Yet to Be
Surmounted Regarded as Serious.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 2.—lt can be
stated positively that no hitch has oc
curred in the proceedings of the peace
commmlsslon at Paris, and an impres
sion to the contrary in certain quar
ters probably arose through a misun
derstanding of the phase those pro
ceedings have reached. With the ac
quiescence by the Spanish commission
ers in the American demands set out in
the original protocol all danger of a
failure to reach the point of signature
of a peace treaty disappeared, and
that such a treaty will be forthcom
ing, covering at least all of the pro
tocol points, is considered assured.
What ls now going on in Paris ls a
negotiation respecting certain objects
which the United States government
seeks to accomplish in that manner in
stead of resorting to the more usual,
but more tedious, method of corre
spondence between the two govern
ments. These objects have been clear
ly stated in general terms in the Asso
ciated Press cable dispatches from
Paris—namely, the acquisition of one
of the Caroline islands as a cable and
coaling station; of certain rights to
land cables on Spanish possessions at
other points, the procurement of free
dom of religious worship in the Caro
lines, and the revival of certain treaties
of trade and commerce. But, as stat
ed, these matters are purely the sub
jects of diplomatic negotiation, and do
not ln any way affect the conclusion of
the peace treaty. They might fail to
be realized, and still the treaty would
not be affected. Moreover, while Spain
Senator ftale Denounces PeaGe Treaty.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 2.— Senator Eugene Hale, of Maine,
today announced hia* opposition to the peace treaty which ls be
ing formulated in Paris. Ha is opposed to the acquisition of the
Philippines, and his antagonism to the treaty will be based upon
that section of the treaty which deals with the Philippine ques
"The negotiation of the treaty, unfortunate as it is." said the
senator today, "by no means assures the actual annexation of
the Philippine islands. It ls uncertain when the treaty will be
signed, or when it will be submitted to the senate, and still
more uncertain whether lt will ever be ratified. The responsibil
ity is so vast, and the solicitude of the public so great, that
ample time will be given to its discussion and to getting the real
facts before the American people."
was the subject of peremptory de
mands ln the case of the protocol
points, she ls free of compulsion now
while these diplomatic exchanges are
ln progress. She may sell to the Unit
ed States one of the Caroline islands
and may refuse to do so, and, more
over, if we buy the islands it must
be at a price satisfactory to Spain. She
may even sell the Caroline group to
Germany instead of to the United
States, if she can obtain a better price
from the former. There is good rea
son to assume the correctness of the
report that Germany is even now bar
gaining for these islands. All the other
points covered by these negotiations,
likewise, are a matter for mutual ar
rangement and not of demand.
CEUTA NOT SOUGHT.
The statement that Spain has re
fused to sell us Ceuta, opposite Gibral
tar, for a coal and cable station ls in
accurate. The United States govern
ment has not made any such proposi
tion for the acquisition of that island
and would hesitate very long before
entering upon the turbulent field of
activities Involved in the acquisition
of territory in the neighborhood of the
The case is different respecting the
Carolines. The American naval ex
perts urged very strongly that this
group as a whole be retained, if pos
sible, and, in addition, that the Pelew
group, lying to the westward, be pur
chased. They have pointed out that
the southernmost island of the La
drone group, Walow, lies only 300
miles north of Ponape, ln the Caro
lines, and the Pelew islands are only
about 600 miles distant from the Phil
ippines. With these the United States
would have a complete chain of islands
located at convenient distances more
than half way across the Pacific.
Moreover, the vast bulk of trade ln
that quarter of the world passes di
rectly through the natural channel be
tween the Ladrones and the Carolines,
of which the United States would have
command. If Germany ls able to out
bid the United States for those islands,
she may Obtain them, but a suspicion
ls entertained that the naming of $20,
--000,000 was inspired by a friendly de
sire to get the best possible terms for
Spain from the United States by rais
ing the price of the goods.
One of the pledges which is almost
as good as a treaty obligation in its
force even now ls that the United
States, in return for the release of the
political prisoners from Cuba and Por
to Rico, held by Spain, will secure the
release of the Spanish, prisoners held
by Aguinaldo, and to this matter at
tention is being devoted here. There
has been an almost daily . dispatch
from Gen. Otis announcing the arrival
of a transport there loaded with Unit
ed States troops, and the- war depart
ment is fairly confident of its ability
now to undertake the full control of
the islands, with the assistance of the
naval contingent under Admiral Dew
ey. It is realized that the task of in
ducing Aguinaldo to surrender the
captives, for whom he has demanded
such an extravagant ransom—$1,500,
--00 penalty of cutting their
throats, is going to be a difficult one,
but, after all, the United States com
missioners ln Parts have only under
taken that the United States govern
ment shall use its best efforts to secure
the release of the prisoners; they have
not pledged the government to per
form the impossible.
SPANIARDS ARE CUNNING.
PARIS, Dec. 2.—Today's session of
the peace commission was a repetition
virtually of several earlier meetings.
, When, after two hours of discussion,
taking a wide range, the Spaniards
were pressed for definite statements,
they pleaded that they had not receiv
ed instructions from Madrid. There
upon the Americans declared, in diplo
matic phraseology, that lt was useless
to waste time in debate with men who
were not empowered to make bar
gains. Although adjournment was
taken until tomorrow, it is probable
there will be a further postponement
The Spaniards' version of today's
session is that they asked to have the
treaty concluded flrst and then the
minor matters discussed. According
to reports from American sources, the
Spanish commissioners endeavored to
draw hints as to how far the Ameri
cans were willing to compromise the
demands under discussion, without dis
closing what concessions Spain was
willing to make. As ihe negotiations
proceed, the prospects of consuming
much time increase. Several very im
portant propositions, presenting many
phases, Invite discussion and must af
terwards be embodied in the agree
ments. This task of embodying may
be long drawn out, every word and
comma requiring consideration.
- LAUDABLE DESIRES.
On the questions yet unsettled, which
do not concern territorial or financial
interests, both committees display
laudable anxiety to promote the wel
fare of the inhabitant} Involved. An
American commissions* remarked to
the correspondent of the Associated
"We realize that th#se peoples are
to become our subjects, and we de
sire to secure for them all their rights
and privileges. We keep in mind the
interests of Spansh citizens in the ter
rtorles changing hands, as well as oth
"Our Spanish friends exhibit a will
ingness to co-operate in this work of
guaranteeing the rights of peoples they
are losing, a willingness that must
command our respect, for we realize
that they might make the task much
more difficult, if they were disposed
to display a resentful spirit."
Among the problems of the forego
ing nature, to which the commission
ers are devoting much attention, is
that of the courts. Both commissions
desire, as far as pos&i'ble, to arrange
that contracts entered upon, and law
feuits brought under the Spanish re
gime, may be transferred to the juris
diction of the American courts, so that
the litigants may lose no right through
the change of government.
The question of continuing contracts
for public works now under way is also
being considered, and It is possible the
treaty will guarantee the fulfillment of
existing mail contracts.
Expansion Is Beelnnins to Bear
Some Bitter Fruit.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 2.—The United
States governiment is being called upon
to face some questions of interest re
sulting from the expansion policy. The
British government, sometime before
the annexation of Hawaii to the Unit
ed States, filed with Hawaii a number
of olalms for redress for the ill treat
ment and Illegal confinement of Brit
ish subjects, involved in the revolu
tionary movement, which overthrew the
queen. These amount to several hun
dred thousand dollars, in the aggregate,
and the question is, the Hawaiian gov
ernment having failed to settle them,
whether the United Sta-tes government
does not Inherit liability.
The claims are just such as were fil
ed by the late Secretary Gresham
against the Hawaiian government in
behalf of a number of alleged Ameri
can citizens, most of* whom afterwards
turned out to be aliens. None of our
claims were pressed, but they formed
the foundation for the British claims.
Another question of more importance
ls the determination of the status of
some of our newly acquired citizens or
subjects. Already a Chinaman by birth
ancl a Filipino by citizenship has ap
plied for citizenship as an American
citizen. Another Chinaman ln Hawaii
wants a passport, showing he is a citi
zen of the United States. The annexa
tion law prohibits the coming into the
United States of Chinese from Hawaii,
but the constitutionality of any act
that proposes discriminaition among
American citizens has been raised, and
this Chinaman is a citizen by adoption.
These are a few of the questions that
have already arisen, and others are ex
pected to follow in the near future.
CUBA SUPREME COURT
IMPRESSIVE CEREMONIES AT
TENDING THE OPENING OF
GEN. WOOD WAS PRESENT
Delivered the Court, ln the Name of
the United States Government, to
the Chief Justice and His Asho
claten Proceedings Terminated
With Handshakings and Con.
SANTIAGO DE CUBA, Dec. 2.—The
opening of the recently organized su
preme court this morning was an im
pressive ceremony. Chief Justice Eche
varria and the associate justices, prior
to the opening, called at the palace,
where they were received by Gen.
Leonard Wood, after which, with Gen.
Wood and his aides, Mr. Robert Por
ter and others, they were driven to
the supreme court chamber. Here the
judges donned their robes of office,
long silk gowns, trimmed with white
lace, and, accompanied by the attor
neys practicing ln the court, who were
similarly dressed, formed in pßS>c#*»
sion and passed into the court room,
the chief justice escorting Gen. Wood.
The procession having divided into
semi-circles, Gen. Wood, in a few tact
ful and forceful words, opened the pro
ceedings, delivering the court, in the
name of the United States government,
to the chief justice and his associates,
and demanding from the public im
plicit obedience to the court's decision
and decrees. His speech was translat
ed into Spanish by Capt. Mendoza.
Chief Justice Echevarria, replying, ac
cepted the judicial offices in the name
of justice, formally recognizing the
United States as the supreme power,
and declaring that the bench would
render justice to rich and poor alike.
The proceedings terminated with
handshakings, after which Gen. Wood's
party was escorted to the entrance by
the entire legal body. The first ses
sion of the first purely Cuban court
was then opened.
Among Cubans the event is a mat
ter for general congratulation. The
local newspapers consider it the dawn
of a new era, and express the hope that
the judges, who are men of legal acu
men and profound research, may be
able to show the world that the Cuban
population has within Itself the ele
ments of good government.
The same papers are exceedingly
complimentary ln their allusions to
Gen. Wood, declaring it "quite impos
sible that any other American could
have secured a better grasp of the en

first to order his men to lay down their

On Monday 150 men will begin to
build the road to Holguln. The dis

Gen. Wood is determined to facilitate
the means of intercommunication from
the towns in this end of the island, and
on the same day 100 men will begin a
road to Guantanamo. In this case a
distance of forty miles must be cov

road will be started to Manzanillo.
These highways, once completed, will
be of Inestimable value for military and

Across the Envelope Is Written
"Opened by Mistake, O. Holden,
County Auditor" — Canvassing
Boiard Will Have to Determine
Whether or Not This Spoils
The state canvassing board will be
called ui>on to take action in an un
usual matter when It meets to go over
the votes oast at the last election.
The eileetion law requires that copies
of the returns from each county shall
be sent to the secretary of state for
the state canvassing board, and that
these shall not be ooened until the
board meets. There are mailed at the
came time copies of this return, which
are opened by the secretary and tabu
lated for convenlemce in order to facili
tate the work of the official canvassing
board. These returns have nothing to
with the official ones.
The official returns from St. Louis

office opened, and indorsed across the
envelope was -the ini3crip>tio.n, "Opened

There is said to be no provision ln
tlie law covering that of the returns
marked "Opened by mistake." The
law says how they shall be returned,

If there is any indication that the
returns have been tampered with, it
would doubtless result ln the vote be

whether or not these are invalidated
by having been opened.
If the returns are thrown out it would
probably leave Judge Lewis a number
of votes short of election.
CARLISTS ARE ACTIVE.
Spanish Government Compelled to
Take Extraordinary Precautions.
LONDON, Dec. 2.—The Madrid cor
respondent of the Daily Mall says:
"In consequence of the Carlist agita
tion in the province of Vizcaya, many
families in the country districts are
removing into the large towns for safe
ty in case of an outbreak.
"Carlist emissaries have arrived at
the respective Carlisit headquarters in
Vasoongiadas, Navarre and Maestraz
go, and It is expected that the govern
ment will order the garrisons at those
plaices to be increased."
LONDON, Dec. 2.—The Madrid corre
spondent of the Standard, forwarding
his dispatch from the frontier, confirms
the activity of the Carllsts at Mora del
la Riviera and adds:
"The authorities, probalbly with a
view of avoiding the provocation of
outbreaks, do not seem to be display
ing much activity in shopping the
spread of the propaganda against the
government, which agents In many
parts of Spaiin are openly denouncing.
The war office, however, is actively
placing the army on a war footing.
There is much anxiety at both the war
and home offices. Although no Carlist
bands have appeared, it is singular to
note the general uneasiness. The gen
eral -apprehension i** that Don Carlos
mil no*t provoke a civil war unless he
can count upon serious support ln the
army, and, in public opinion, no such
symptoms are yet perceptible."

Telegraphic Correspondence Be

There Was an Effort at Interfer

WASHINGTON, Dec. 2.—The annual
report of Secretary Alger is practically
a complete official history of the Span
The report proper begins with what
may be described as a chronologioal
history of the war, consisting of a
number of short paragraphs, begin
ning with the declaration of war on
April 21, and setting forth the date
upon which any event of importance
occurred, but making no comment
whatever upon the facts. The only ex
ception to this rule is in a reference
to the casualties at Santiago. Some
criticism having been made that there
was a lack of surgeons present, the
report states that there were 140 sur
geons In attendance, and that of 1,43*4
wounded only thirteen died of their
wounds. Touching the surrender at
Santiago, the report shows that Shaf
ter demanded the surrender on the 3d
and renewed this demand on the 4th. -
On the morning of the 11th another
demand was made. On the evening of
that day Gen. Miles arrived, and on
the 13th and 14th of July he, with Gen.
Shafter, met the Spanish commander
under a flag of truce to discuss the
surrender. On the afternoon of the 14th
Gen. Miles left Gen, Shafter's head
quarters, and soon thereafter went
aboard ship, preparatory to sailing for
Porto Rico. July 17 Toral surrendered
23,000 men upon our terms, and the
American flag was hoisted by order of
Gen. Shafter. The report says:
"The deaths ln the army from May
1 to Oct. 1, including "-"'°~ ■""-*-1 -*
wounds and of disease,
smallest death rate rt
army in history, a r>
when it is considered t
of our troops, born and
temperate zone, were ct
tropical climates, subjec
heat almost unprecedented.
The secretary says of the volunteers
that to furlough them in winter would
be a hardship, so he recommends that,
in lieu of the furlough, the officers and
men be given two months' pay at the
time of the discharge, thus admitting
of their prompt discharge in their pres
ent camps ln the South.
ARMY INCREASE RECOMMENDED.
Under the head of Increase in the
permanent establishment, the secre
"In view of the needs of a military
force in the Islands occupied by the
United States, it is earnestly recom
mended that the regular army be per
manently Increased to 100,000 men and
the requisite officers; that a portion of
this army be recruited from the inhab
itants of those islands to be mustered
into the service of the United States,
commanded by officers of our army,
discretion, however, to be given to the
president to make appointments of of
ficers from the force so recruited.
"These men are acclimated, under
stand the language and habits of their
countrymen and their enlistment will
not only give them employment, but
also have the tendency to enable the
government to get Into closer touch
with their people than it would other
wise be able to do. This would also
relieve our own people from serving
ln those climates to a large extent and
would, moreover, enable the volunteers
to be mustered out of the service and
return to the avocations of civil life."
Secretary Alger thinks that the gov
ernment will be greatly taxed to (sup
ply food to the destitute, especially
in Cuba. The effort should be made,
he thinks, to give the people work, In
stead of allowing them to dwell in
idleness, living upon charity. He says:
"Would it not be wise economy for
the government of the United States to
construct a substantial railroad, prac
tically the whole length of the island
of Cuba, with branch roads to the lead
ing cities of the coast? Such a road
would, of course, cost a large sum,
perhaps $20,000,000; but, it would givo
employment to the people of Cuba,
teach them habits of industry and be
an inducement for them to cultivate
their farms, and thus furnish supplies
for the laborers and for market when
the road ls constructed."
The statement of expenditures and
estimates presents some formidable
figures. The expenditures for the fiscal
year ended June 30 last, were $62,634,
--784, and the estimates for the next
fiscal year, beginning July 1, 1899, are
$195,250,377. Of this great estimate the
sum of $55,430,509 is charged to pay of
the army. The estimate of extra
ordinary appropriations required for
the six months ending July 30, 189"",
are $60,177,539, and the estimates for
that period, combined with those for
the next fiscal year, reach a total of
At this point the secretary includes
in his report the reports of Gen. Miles
and all the other generals who par
ticipated in active operations. He then
takes up the telegraphic and other
correspondence relating to the war,
and that matter occupies more than
