OTIS IS DEFIED THE FII.IIMNO CHIEF ISSI ES A BOLD l'KOt I.AMATIOX OF I»RI\t'II*L,ES AGAINST AMERICAN CLAIMS Auninalrlo Asserts He Can Prove tlie I'nited States Recofrni»ed tlie Fil ipinos as Belligerents and fame to Fight! for Independence Gen. Otis Hopes for a Feneeable Solu tion of tlie TrffnMe. MANILA, P. 1., Jan. 7.— Within a few hours of the proclamation issued by Maj. Gen. Otis, in behalf of President McKinley, the agents, of Aguinaldo billed Manila with a manifesto which attracted considerable attention. The revolutionary president protested against Gen. Otis signing himself mili tary governor of the Philippine islands. Aguinaldo, in his manifesto, declared that he had never agreed at Singapore, Hong Kong, or elsewhere to recognize the sovereignty of the Americans here, and insisted that he returned to the Philippines on an American ship sim ply to conquer the Spanish and win in- . dependence. He asserts that both his proclamations, of May 24 and June 12, state this fact officially, and claims that Maj. Gen. Merritt confirmed this by a proclamation some days before the Spanish capitulated, stating clearly and definitely that the American forces came to overthrow the Spanish gov ernment and liberate the Filipinos. In conclusion Aguinaldo declared that he had natives and foreigners as wit nesses that the American forces recog nized not only by acts that the Filipi nos were belligerents, but by publicly saluting the Filipino flag "as it tri umphantly sailed these seas before the eyes of all nations." Aguinaldo then solemnly protested "in the name of the Deity, who em powered him to direct his brethren ln the difficult task of regeneration against the intrusion of the American govt i nment, and reiterated that he can produce proofs that he was brought here on the understanding that the Americans promised him their co-op eiation to attain independence." The revolutionary leader then called upon iiin followers to work together with force, and assured them he Is con that they will obtain absolute ,'lence and urging them never in "from the glorious road" on they "have already so far ad van i Maj. Gen. Otis attaches no Import ance to the i.ianifesto. He says that I s confident that the opinion of the Filipinos is nut expressed in lt, but as to whether the Filipino masses can riled and the Filipino army ck he does not know, al though he hopes for a pacific outcome of the trouble.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 7.— The navy department has received a long cipher cable dispatch from Admiral Dewey, making- requisitions for ships and sup plies urgently needed on the Asiatic station. The admiral reiterated the re quest he has made several times in the last few weeks that additional light draught gunboats should be sent to him, notwithstanding the fact that Sec retary Long informed him yesterday that the Castine was starting imme diately by way of Suez, and other ves sels would follow when they could be spared. A reply was sent to the ad miral today that the Bennington, now on her way from Honolulu to make surveys at Guam, would be ordered to Manila, and the Machias, now repair ing at Portsmouth, N. H., would follow the Castine through the Mediterranean in a few weeks on her way to join his fleet. Secretary' Long added a request to Admiral Dewey to designate specifical ly any other gunboats he desired, in order that the department might grat ify him if possible. The authorities , recognize the advisability of sending all the gunboats that can be spared to the Asiatic station on account of their adaptability to service in the archi pelago, but in addition to the Concord and Petrel, which are now at Hollo, the Helena is at Port Said on her way to Manila, and Admiral Dewey now has in commission the Callao, the Ma nila, the Culgoa and the Barcelo, which he captured from the Spaniards, and in a few weeks the Isla de Luzon and the Isla de Cuba, which he raised and sent to Hong Kong, will be manned by crews sent out on the Buffalo. He also haa the captured gunboats Leyte and Min danao, awaiting crews, and when the Machias, the Castine and the Benning ton join him, he will have thirty vessels under his command, not counting the Oregon and the Iris, which will soon be at Honolulu awaiting orders to go to his support. Such a large fleet hka never, in times of peace, been under the command of a single American of-" fleer, but the department has such con fidence in the-admiral's judgment that it will not hesitate to send him any fur ther reinforcements that he demands. In his dispatch Admiral Dewey calls for large quantities of plug tobacco, soap and American food. His demand for more plug tobacco is explained in letters which recently reached Wash ington from officers of the fleet, telling how tired the men are of Philippine cigars, and how they miss their sweet ened navy plug and their clay pipes. To carry these needed supplies the de partment decided today to fit up the auxiliary cruiser Yankee, or her sister ship, the Prairie, and load them full of necessities, pending them to Manila by way of the Suez canal. These vessels are now at League island, but one of them can be sent around to New York and made ready to start in the next two weeks. GERMANY REFUSED. Womld Not Interfere When Called Upon at Hollo. NEW YORK, Jan. 7.— The New York Staats Zeitung will publish the follow ing tomorrow from its special Berlin correspondent: "I am Informed, from a reliable Bource, that after the surrender of Iloilo, the Spanish general tried to in duce the German consul at Ma nila and the German* vice consul at Iloilo to take charge of the pro tection of the private interests of the Spaniards. The two consuls wired to Berlin for. instructions and received the following answer: '"The German empire being a neutral power ls not ln a position to take charge of functions which could easily be construed &W partiality for Spain. All we endeavor to obtain in the Phil ippines is protection and unrestricted movement of our commerce. Since we see that both are secured under the United States flag we are fully con fident that there will not ever arise a situation which could cause us to de viate from the strictly neutral atti tude observed by us up to this day." The correspondent adds that the Washington government has been In formed of this communication. SITUATION CRITICAL. Gen. lii.-tM Says Filipinos and Amer icans Are More Hostile.

PEW IT WAS DEAD AN MIJIV SIRGEON WHO ORDERED "EMBALMED" BEEF TO ME PROMPTLY BURIED GEN. MILES' BAD BEEF Some Amusing Testimony Adduced l>y tlie Wiu Inquiry Board "Farmer" Black Tells What He Does Not Kiinw About Prepared Reef Some of the Food Sent to Porto Rleo Was Spoiled. WASHINGTON, Jan. 7.— Maj. John D. Black, commissary 6t subsistence in the office of the commanding gen eral, testified that the general charac ter of the commissary supplies was good. He said that the Massachusetts (transport) arrived with troops and fiesh meat, but she grounded and dis charged her troops, proceeding with all the freslj meat to Gen. Brooke's command, further up the coast. On Aug. 10 the Manitoba arrived with 1,755 quarters of beef, which, he said, was "preserved by some chemical process." This immediately drew a vol ley of questions from the committee, which resulted in an explanation from the witness that the chemicals were ammonia, used in the refrigerator plants to keep the meat cool. "That is all right," said Gey. Wood bury. "The chemicals were merely in the cooling plant and not in the meat," re plied Maj. Black. The Manitoba was towed out Into deep water, having previously ground ed on the same reef as the Massa chusetts. A large force of stewards was put aboard to clean her up. Here she remained until the 24th, when she was watered and some more provis j ions put aboard her and she was sent to Arribo to supply Gen. Garrettson's command. Witness did not see the beef aboard the Manitoba, and did not know anything about its quality ex cept a very small amount landed at Ponce for the sick. This seemed to be gcod, but "the majority was spotted and discolored." "What sort of spots?" asked Col. Denby. "Dark, muddy spots." "Did these spots affect the quality of the beef?" "I was informed they did not." "You delivered this to the sick. You WILLIAM POTTER, PROSPECTIVE AMBASSADOR TO RUSSIA. WASHINGTON, Jan. 7.— William Potter, of Philadelphia, who Is said to be slated for the embassy to St. Petersburg, is an efficient and tactful diplomat, by no means unused to the demands that will be made upon him as the American representative to the court of the czar. Mr. Potter was United States min ister to Italy during the Mafia troubles In New Orleans. The Italian mission at that time was a most difficult post to fill. With rumors of war and a most tense feeling against America among the Ital ian people. Mr. Potter con ducted himself admirably. His high patriotism and extreme consideration and forbearance completely won over the king and served to cemont the friendship of the two countries would not have done this if you had thought it was spoiled?" '»Mo, sir." "The doctors made no objection to feeding this beef to the sick." "I heard none." "Did you eat any of this meat your self?" "No, sir; I ate the native beef." Gov. Woodbury asked: "Did you, while in the island, see or hear of any beef that was treated with chemicals to preserve it?" "I heard of none, but I have had no experience with chemically treated meat, and I do not know that my opin ion would be of any value." "Tell me, major," said Col. Danby, "how long you have been in the com missary department?" "Since the Sth of last June." "What were your duties before the war?" "I was a farmer," replied the wit ness, with a smile. "I consequently know more of raising beef than of pre serving it." HAD IT BURIED. Of the tinned beef 34,000 pounds were issued. Witness tasted it only once. He was hungry, and it tatted fairly well. It did not look well, and there was numerous complaints of bad can ned beef, and in these cases the bad cans were replaced. Later, he said that he had received no 'complaints personally, but whatever reports were made were made to the depot commis sary, Capt. Pomeroy. All he knew of these reports he had gleaned from con versation with Capt. Pomer.oy. He did not know that any regular reports were made, even to Capt. Pomeroy, but un derstood that there was general verbal complaint as to the tinned beef. Witness then read a report he had made to Gen. Miles after their return to New York. It was based on the conversations just referred to, and said in part that some of the hospital sur geons had refused to accept the refri gerator beef on the ground of its ap pearance, and one surgeon, witness did not remember the name, had ordered some of it buried. Maj. Blake stated that in the expedi tion of Gen. Miles to Porto Rico many of the captains of the vessels reported they had no knowledge of what they had aboard. He tef erred to a delay in landing supplies of hospital tents, cots and lounges from the Concho, and said Gen. Brooke had stated to Surgeon Greenleaf that he had sick men lying on the ground with no supplies avail able. It was stated at the commission to day that it had been decided to allow Commissauy General Egan to re-testi fy, as he had requested to be permitted to meet the beef charges. He is ex pected to appear again early next week. . -Mr" . Standard Oil Ltttsaty-'ju CLEVELAND, 0., Jan. 7— Attojfße-fejGeneral Monett does not agree with Atloiue*. Virgil P.

Shall Not Attempt to Govern Peo ple What Do Not Consent to Be Governed. WASHINGTON. Jan. 7.— At a treaty session of the senate today the flrst of the regular appropriation bill to be re ported to that body, the District of Columbia, was passed. It carried, a trifle over $7,000,000, and was passed practically without debate. The presentation of a memorial from a camp of Confederate veterans in op position to the proposition of Mr. But ler (Pop.. N. CT), to pension ex-Con federate soldiers, was made the text by Mr. Alien (Pop., Neb.) for some re marks, in the course of which he said that Mr. Butlef in making his propo sition and the president in suggesting that the nation care for the graves of ' the Confederate dead, had been car- ' ried away by their enthusiasm. Mr. Mason (111.) offered the following resolution: "Whereas, All just powers of government are derive, from the consent ot the govern ed; therefore, for* lt "Resolved, By the senate of th© United States, that the g-overnmmt of tha United ' States cf America -will mot attempt to govern the people of a«ny other country in the world •without the consent of the people themselves, or subject thelm by force to our dominion against their will."

House Practically Completes It, Save s Civil Service Item. WASHINGTON, Jan. 7.— The house of representartives was engaged all day in the legislation of the executive ap propriation bill and completed it sub stantially as reported, except the items for the civil service commission which went over until Monday. There were several side debates today. One of these brought out Mr. Grosvenor, of Ohio, in a speech of an hour on current political Questions. Mr. Grosvenor then outlined the platform of the two parties, dwelling specifically on the lew itarift and silver policies of the Democrats and the high tariff and gold standard proclivities of the Republic ans. The result of the Republican policy, he said, was already seen in the increase of our exports, bringing gold to this country and stopping the revo lution of the endless chain, about which so much had been heard under the Democratic administration of Mr. Cleveland. The issue had been clearly cut and distinctly decided and the Democratic orators had dwelled upon the " menace of maintaining the gold standard. "The most unfortunate utterance a public man ever made," he said, "was Mr. Bryan's frequent inquiry upon corning into towns, whether general prosperity had yet arrived. That in quiry was, " he commented, "beneath the dignity of a great man, a man made great by a great issue, if not by his own personal magnitude. The Chi nese wall of foreign 'trade had been broken down and for the first time in our history Europe was looking to the United States to fix the rate of exchange. He maintained that while) there had been an unprecedented In crease ln the revenues derived from abroad on our agricultural products, the exportation of our manufacturers had kept even pace with "them." He proceeded in some detail to show that American trade was penetrating all corners of the earth and winning for us the envy and admiration of man kind, continuing with an appeal to the country to sustain the policy, which was doing so much for us. Mr. Underwood (Dem., Ala.) replied briefly to Mr. Grosvenor, urging the futility of high tariff in securing pros perity and the argument of the party in power on financial questions. Mr. Cox (Dem., Term.) also took up the political theme arguing that if the government was on a gold standard, it was not due to any legislation by the party in power, but through the course of the secretary of the treasury. The Philippines also came in for at tention on the discovery of an item of $12,000 for naval charts of the islands. The item was ruled out on a point of order by Mr. Dockery, the chairman, Mr. Payne holding that the Philippines were still foreign territory, and as such not the proper subject of the legisla tion proposed.

Ruskln hall will accommodate forty men. There will be no ordinary servants", but among the students will be cooks and other servants who will get their « board free in return for four hours' daily work.

Fifty gratuitous tui tions will be given within the first two years, and fifty students have already been selected for the flrst year. They are, in the words of the organizers, men aspiring to be vestrymen, county councillors, members of parliament, trade unionists, and fellows who har angue crowds In the streets and who organize club's." The funds for the scheme are provided by American ad mirers of John Ruskin. CRITICISING CURZON. Already He Has Succeeded in Offend ing Natives of India.
