peaco commission In Paris nt IU noxt

rJiM8 protocols, whloh wore drawn
tip nt tho liiHt nicotine of tho commit

consideration by tho Amcrloan peace
commissioners for tho last threo days,
flecrotnry Day sent n telegram Is the
trtftto dupnrtnicnt on Monday regard
Ing tho work of tho Amorlcnn cominU
alonors, but It wan merely routine In
character nnd dimply show that Mr.
Day and bin rollonguo havo completed
tho featuroe of tho agreements whlrh
they are nnxloim tho Hpunlsh commis
sioner shall adopt.
There Is no truth In the report from
Madrid that there has been a MUTT In
tho negotiations and tho prooceC'ngs
of tbo commission iiro not progressing
iih satisfactorily ai could be dclrcd. An
a matter of fact, in response to tho
American demand, the Spanish rep
resentative have submitted counter
iANnils, and one of thoito suggest tho
assumption by the United BlatoH of tlm
Cuban dobt In return, It Ih suit), far the
annexation of Cuba by tbo United
StatoH. railing In UiIh, tho Spanish
representatives aro anxious that tin
Cuban debt shall bo liorno by tho Cu
battH, with n guarantee of some If. ml
from tblu country.
From Information whloh tho authorl
Ilea have received, they say thoy havo
no doubt that Spain will attempt lo
fasten the Phlllpplno dobt upon tbo
United State, and thin Information
would seem to Indlrnte that Hpalu lint
In mind a proposition which may even
tually be submitted to t It la guvorn
mcnt for tho United State to tako all
of the Philippine, ihoulder tho Philip
pine debt nnd give her linportHiit ad
vantage, commercial nnd ctuerwlso,
In the eastern Islands. If Spain ha
Htich a proposition In view, she may
ns well know that It vlll b a waste
of time for her to prosout It. This gov
ernment will accept no debt, nor will
It guarantee the payment of tho Cuban
dobt. dlreetly or Indirectly. Tho In
struction of tho American commis
sioners are posltlvo on thin point. It
is expected that tho matter of tho Cu
ban debt will romo up for discussion
at Tuesday's session and the Amorlcnn
commUlohnrs will notify tho Hpatiluli
rnmmlsslonor on tho uuiiltrra'hlllty of
tho derision of tho United States on

New York, Oot. 11. A dispatch
from Washington says:
Tho United Slntos may submit a dip
lomatic protest to Spain through tho
Kronch government against Its action
In sending n Spsnlsb auxiliary cruiser
loaded with nrms and ammunition to
tho Philippines.
In any ovont the matter Is under con
sideration, and It Is believed has boon
onllcd to tho attention ot the American
commissioner In Paris. The cruiser In
question Is the Iluenos Ayrns, belong
ing to tho Spanish auxiliary navy,
which Hear Admiral Dowey reported
to the navy department several days
ngo, In duo to arrive at Singapore,
Blrnlts sotttomont, on Oet. II.
It Is appreciated by tho nulhorltlos
that Spain has tho so mo right In tho
oyos ot International law to send re
inforcements to the Phlllpplno Is
lands ns this Rovornment. nnd any pro
test mado would bo ot tho most diplo
matic character nnd simply designed
to roako It plain that tho coiitlnunnoo
ot tho vayago of tho Uucnos Ayros Is
objectionable. On tho othor hand, a
member A tho cabinet last ulRbt said
that nil ot the Philippine,, with tho
exception of Manila, aro in tho nominal
poMoeslon ot Spain, nnd that it Is her
undoubted privilege If she deems It ad
vlsablo to do so, to send troop to tho
eastern Islands to subdue any insurrec
tion that may occur. Another member
ot tho cabinet who talked the tunttor
ovor with the president admitted that
Spain hns tho moral right to dispatch
rolnforccmonts to tho Phlllpplno, but
es tho forces ot this government are
In control It is within Its authority to
provent such reinforcements reaching
thulr destination. However, It Is not
expected that the matter will go be
yond a protest, If It gowt thut fnr.
From tho dUpatchos received from
Chalrmnu Day the nulhorltlos nro still
at tho opinion that tho work of tho
peaco commission will bo completed
beforo congress meets. Mr. May takos
qulto nn optimistic view ot tho situa
tion. It Is tho doslro to limit tho tlmo
ot dlsoussloii ot tho vurloim points
raised as much as possible In order
that tho negotiations may reach an
early conclusion. Information which
tins boon received hero shows con
clusively that Spain has no further
hope of foreign Interference, and this
fact loads tho nuthoritltM lo bollovo
that she wilt nut nttempt to drag the
negotiations out as long as she would
It alio believed thorn was a cliiiuo ot
any Kuropwui government attempting
to socuro a modification ot the Amor

ta Indians will seo that they hnvo
mode a great mistake In gnlnft on tho
warpath," says Oeronlmo, tho famous
Apneas chief, who Is one ot the In
dians now In rnmp at tho Indian con
gross, "I havo never been In Minnesota,
but 1 hear Hint up there and for hun
dreds of miles beyond tho whlto men
are as many as the blades ot grass.
If that Is so, what cap a fow poor In
diana; do In a fight? Thoy are making
a great mistake and nro fools. Knr
years I fought tho whlto mon, thinking
that with my few braves I could kill
thorn nil and that vc would again have
tlm. land that our Orent Path or gavo
us and which he covered with game.
I thought that the (Irest Spirit would
bo with us and that attor wo had kill

nntl nntolopo would como back. After
I fought and I oet and after I trnvolod
over tho country In which tho white
marullvos nnd saw his oltlos nnd tho
worjytlint bo had done, my henrt wns
rend? to burst. I know that tho rneo
of tho Indians was run."
Asked what ho thought would event
ually become at the Indian, (ieronlmo
hesitated n moment nnd then, pointing
to tho west, replied:
"The sun rlsos aad shines for a time
and then It goes down, sinking out of
sight and Is lost. 8o It will he with
tho Indians.
"Whon I wns a boy my old father
told me that the Indians wero as many

off In tho north thoy hint many horses
nnd furs. I never saw them, but I
know Hint If thoy woro there thon they

It should glvo them something to do,
