Tho Filipino Junta, representatives
of Oen. Agulnnldo, and tho Filipino
government at Hong Kong havo drawn
up what they designate as an "appeal
to President MoKlnley and tho Ameri
can people," but what Is in reality
rather In the naturo of an arraign
ment of American actions In tho Phil
ippines. John narrett. former United States
minister to 81am, waa asked by tho
Junta to present tho memorial of the
United States government and people.
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. While the fate of tho Islands Is
still undecided and wo arc doing all In
our power to prevent a conflict between
tho Americans nnd Filipinos, awaiting
patiently tho conclusion of the Paris
commission, wo Implore the Interfer
ence of the president, supported by tho
will of the people to end the slights
shown our leaders, soldiers and people,
by some of tho Amorlcan military and
nnval officers, although we do not wish
to wrong Admiral Dawoy or den. Otis."
The memorial then avers that "false
reports are spreading broadcast alleg
ing that tho friction," points out "that
tho tonlion Is greater every day and
nny moment a shot mya bo fired by an
Irrosponslhlo American or Filipino sol
dier, loading to great bloodshed," and
liesocchlng us to "help tho Junta to
control our iooplo by directing the
American officials at Manila toiompcr
their actlonn with friendship, Justice
and fairness."
"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

The mutiny ot tho nrden publloo

threatened tho peace ot that elty, has
resulted In tho dissolution ot Hint body
when, after the payment ot somo ar

their arms. Capt. (len. Illaneo then
ordered all tho foot and mounted regi
ments ot the ordon publico to bo dis

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

For some time past the uprising ot

1000 armed soldiers, tho reports add,
presented themselves In front ot the

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
