Mr. Barrett replied that whllo ho could have no official Influenco regarding the status of tho matter, he was satisfied the sentiments of tho Filipinos would receive at the hands of thn American all the consideration It merited. The memorial ssys: "We, tho Hong Kong representatives of our countrymen, appeal to tho great and good government of President Me- Klnloy and Hie spirit of fairness and Justness of tho American people as I hoa always shown In tholrjegard for tho petitions of the weak aud oppress ed.

"From tho commencement at tho hos tilities," continues tho memorial, "tho Filipinos acceded to all tho American requests, but nftcr bottling up tho Spaniards In Manila tho Filipinos wero completely Ignored when tho Ameri cans advanced nnd wero thus deprived of thn fruits of victory. Now, nftor months of campaigning, tho Filipino troops have boen ordered beyond tho suburbs, whero they have no quarters nnd whero supplies am difficult to oil tain.

The mutiny ot tho nrden publloo forces nt Havana, which for two days threatened tho peace ot that elty, has resulted In tho dissolution ot Hint body when, after the payment ot somo ar rears and tho promlso ot a full liquida tion, tho revolting troops laid down their arms. Capt. (len. Illaneo then ordered all tho foot and mounted regi ments ot the ordon publico to bo dis banded, that organization ceasing to exist. As originally planned, It was Intended that the mutiny should have extruded to the guardla civil and tho artillery regulars, and It would In that event have assumed much graver Im portance, and might have Inaugurated ,s reign at terror nnd bloodshed In tho Islands. For some time past the uprising ot troops In consequence ot the non receipt ot tliolr pay has been feared. Not only Is their pay owing for monthi, and In somo oases for years, but tho reserve pay ot thn soldiers, their sav ings slnco the data ot their enlistment. which wero looked upon thorn as sa cred, havo' bcon appropriated, or stolen ns the men say, by a government which now turns u deaf ear to their protosts. What amount this reservo pay reachui It Is Impossible to estimate bul It Is known that It aggregates millions. This Is what has been precipitating riots, causing mutiny at Havana, Im pelling to Insubordination nt Nue- Vltas, and whloh may yet give rise to further widespread disturbance lu the I us nd.

About 1000 armed soldiers, tho reports add, presented themselves In front ot the palace, calling on the military gov ernor, Umlllo March, for their ovorduo pay. Theroupon (len. Maroh drew his sword aud ordered them to disband. Tho soldiers, however, refused ta obey, and somo ot them, armed with loaded rifles, threatened tho life at Qon.

Among tho onlook ers here tho Impression exists, though It Is nit the result ot nny oflletat statement, that tho Spanish peace commissioners will not consent to a treaty that tho Amorlea'n commission ers ooiild sign. It weenis almost possible, also, that In Uie pltlnblo pressure to which the Spanish commissioners are subjected between their largo creditors, who are on tho spot wntehlng them, and tho stern attitude ot tho United States, tho Spaniards may abandon tholr struggles and leavo tho two forces to Vmfront each other. Tho statement Is made here that the hstm omorandum from the Americans 3s regarded by tho Spaniards na n vir tus! ultimatum. Hut. as a matter of fact, the Americans havo- not presented an ultimatum, save as their treatment of the subjects In hand may be unan swerable. It Is only slnco Wednesday last that the Spaniards have begun to feel that tho American purpixut taking over tho Philippine, and that, too, without sny nBiumptlon of Spanish In debtedness. As they are now con vinced ot this, It mny bo that Spain's next presontmont In conference will be tho supremo rally of hor diplomatic, nrgumontatlvo and tactful forces. It mny oven mark the ronelueton of nil she Iim to ray, but It tho rule of pro- ecduro nro followed, tho Americans would still havo another presentation to submit. Hver since Oct 1 It has been within tho range ot possibilities that nt any meeting nn open rupture might oocur, nnd on one or two occasions It might havo been oailly a fact, oven before tho taking up ot the Phlllpplno ques tion. The boundaries nf tho field in which Hint question is being worked out nro becoming mora apparent, aud tho anglo of final settlement can not bo fnr off. If n treaty is tho result here, It may fairly bo oxpected within throe weeks, although it is not true, as represented from tho United States yesterday, that tho Americana havo Instructions cm bodylno'a'tline limit for tho conclusion of tho conference.
