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

Admiral Dewey Yrge-n Navy Depart
ment to Hasten Supplies.
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
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.

NEW YORK, Jan. 7.— The New York
Staats Zeitung will publish the follow
ing tomorrow from its special Berlin
"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

The correspondent adds that the
Washington government has been In

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
"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.
"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
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
"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
"I was a farmer," replied the wit
ness, with a smile. "I consequently
know more of raising beef than of pre
serving it."
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
It was stated at the commission to
day that it had been decided to allow

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

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
"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.

LONDON, Jan. 7.— The event of Lord
Curzon of Kedleston sweeping into
power on the throne of the viceroy of
fndia, quite overshadows the modest
departure of Lord Elgin, the retiring
viceroy. Yet the newspapers, already

cessor. The latter has already achieved
one of those tactless blunders, which
the critics feared his self -sufficiency
would rush him into. He has snub
bed a committee of the most respecta
ble residents desiring to present him
with a scheme for the higher educa
tion of Indians on the lines of the
Johns Hopkins university, which a na
tive, Jamsetfi Tata, proposes to do
with £250,000 ($1,250,000). and the na
tives, naturally, are offended.
