SPAIN'S ANSWER STILL
Meaning of Hot Unexpected Delay.
THE EFFECT ON THE PUBLIC.
Sagasta Seeking to Create the Impres

Secure Modifications?No Conceal?

of Condition of Transports in Which
the Wounded Suffered.
Washington, Aug., 2.?Although this
was the third day since the President de?
livered to M. Cambon the terms olFered
by the United States to Spain as a basis of
peace, no answer came from Madrid, and
in fact was scarcely expected.
The press reports of the long cabinet
meetings held in the Spanish capital yes?
terday indicated that the Spanish cabinet
was unprepared at least to accept the
terms offered at once and without appear?
ing to attempt to secure isome modifica?
tion in the interest of Spain. It is felt
that such a course is absolutely imposed
upon the Sagasta ministry by the existing
conditions in Madrid. Nevertheless, it is
not to be seen that the President cherishes
the slightest intention of consenting to
any essential modification of the condi?
tions, and the slight delay that hps occur?
red in making answer is not believed to be
discouraging, nor to be taken as a sign of
the purpose of the Spanish cabinet ulti?
mately to reject the proposition.
When the doors of the State Depart?
ement closed this afternoon it was realized
vhat owing to the difference of time be?
tween Washington and Madrid, there wrs
little chance of receiving the expected an?
swer before tomorrow; and, indeed, should
it come tonight, the French ambassador
would not be able to deliver it, because the
time required for its transmission would
make the hour too late and the announce?
ment could not be made until tomorrow.
AN OFFICIAL STATEMENT.
The following is the official statement
given out by authority of the President at
the SUite Department as to the terms of
peace offered by the United States:
"In order to remove any misapprehen?
sion in regard to the negotiations as to
peace between the United States and
Spain, it is deemed proper to say that the
terms offered by the Unites States to
Spain in the note banded to?. the French
ambassador on Satr day last are in sub?
stance n follows:
"The President does not now put for?
ward any claim for pecuniary indemnity,
but requires the relinquishmenr of all
claim of sovereignty over or title to the
island of Cuba, as well as the immediate
evacuation by Spain of the island; the ces
^ cion to the United States and immediate
evacuation of Porto Pico and islands under
Spanish sovereignty in the West Indies;
and the like cession of an island in the
Ladrones. The United States will occupy
and hold the city, bay and harbor of Ma?
nila pending the concirsion of a treaty of
peace, which shall determine and control,
disposition and government of the Philip?
pines. If these terms are accepted by
Spain in their entirety, it is stated that
commissioners nil! be named by the Unit?
ed States to meet commissioners on the
part of Spain for the purpose of conclud?
ing a treaty of peace on the basis above
How He Makes Trouble For the
London, August 2.?A dispatch to the
Times from Cavite, dated July 26, says:
"It is becoming more apparent daily
that there are serious complications ahead.
The Americans never made a greater mis?
take than bringing Aguinaldo and the in?
surgent leaders here and giving them arms
and ammnition, for free r<<e, from the
^.Cavite arsenal. Aguinaldo, fearing annex
T ation by the Americans,, openly opposes
"Either he has been corrupted by some
foreign nation or he lies a false notion of
the strength of the Philippine revolutiona?
ries, failing to recognize that their recent
euccesses are due to the concentration of
Spanish strength at Manila, consequent
upon the presence of the Americans. Al?
though he admits no foreign recogr'tion,
he talks of his government and dictates to
the American authorities in absurdly in?
"He has compelled the natives of the
southern approaches to ManiMa to register
their bullocks, ponies and conveyances,
instructing the ownen not to supply them
to the Americans for transportation with?
out his sanction. Brigadier General An?
derson promptly adopted measures, warn?
ing Aguinaldo that force would be used to
impress the means of transports, which
were ultimately forthcoming. Agj:naldo's
attitude makes futile operations against
"In my opinion, with the aid of the
fleet the city might already have been
American. Nothing but the complications
with the natives prevented an advance.
Now the violent rains have set in, making
camp field operations arduous'and threat?
ening the health of the men which until
now hn been excellent.
"I am conv'need that the Philippines
w:,l never captive Manila unaided, and
that if the Americwithd-aw, the fate
of the natives under Sps^sh rule would
i be worse than before. There wou'd be
Inconstant fighting and trade extenson

"My Old Virginia Home."
"Soon I hope to reach my old Virginia
No more to weep, No more to roam,
I There among the mountains and the h?ls,
I There among the rivers and the rills,
There on old Virginia soil,
1 The State to which I should be loyal,
It 18 there that I wish to dwell,
In tbe little town of Tazewell.
Far from my old friends I have strayed,
Though lots of new ones I have made,
In the North, in the South, in the East, in
Still it is those of Virginia that I love best,
For it is those of the old mother state
With whom i am most intimate;
So in the Old Dominion is where I wish
For that is really the only home for me.
Now for more than one year
I have been wandering far and near;
Over this country, up and down,
Through many a state and in many a town.
I am tired of the life of aberration
And now desire a permanent location.
So I am longing for the time to come,
When I again shall see my mountain
I am tired of my present vocation
So will reti'ru to my former occupation,
And as I no longer wish to deviate,
I shall in the town of Tazewell locate,
For of all the towns in which I have been
Tazewell will equal any I have yet seen.
There in old Virginia i shall remain
And never leave my native state again.

Troops to Leave Camp Alger as Soon
Washington, August 2.?Camp Alger is
to be abandoned by the War Deparament,
and the 20,000 men there are to be remov?
ed to a more healthful locality, ne,ar Man
ass.'is, Virginia. Thi9 determination was
reached by Secretary Algol- today, as a
result of recommendations made to him
by Surgeon General Sterrrfferg, of the
army, who believes infrequent changes
of camping grovnt1? of large bodies of
men, pad because of the rapid progress of

will be kept in brigades.
The* start from Camp Alger is to be
made as soon as possible.
What Disturbs Aguinaldo.
New lork, August 2.?A cablegram to
tbe Journal from Cavite, July 30, via
Hong Kong, reports that the correspond?
ent has spent two days in interviewing in?
surgent leaders. As a result, the corres?
pondent says he discovered evidences of
jealousy of the American invasion but no
actual anti-American feeling. The dis?
"Aguinaldo is respectful toward Admi?
ral Dewey, General Merritt and Consul
Wildman, and will go any lengths to re?
tain Consul Wildman's good opinion, but
he holds back from giving energetic help
to the United States forces.
"He will give only a negative sort of as?
sistance until he knows the exact form
which the American policy will take. He
is disturbed by telegraphic reports that the
LTnited States will abandon the islands to
Spain. There are some indications of a clash
between General Merritt and Aguinaldo."

death ok mks. caroline ellen l'eery.
We record with great sadness the death
of Sister Caroline Ellen Peery, who was a
faithful member of The Woman's Foreign
Missionary Society of this place. We had
known her for a life time and hail been
eye witnesses of the transformation of her
character into the image of Christ.
Among her friends she was known for the
quiet dignity of her life; at home she was
a gentle,true wife and devoted mother; in
the church she did what she could, being
faithful in attendance upon the house of
God aHd unusuallv attentive to the word
We thank God for having given her
quiet life and beautiful example to us, and
now that she will meet with us no more on
this earth, though r?ur sorrow be unex
pressible, yet we sorrow not as otheis who
law no hope, for as Jesus died and rose
again, so this one who sleeps in Jesus
sha'l God bring with him iii that day
when He shall make up His Jewels.

Whereas it has pleased our Heavenly
Father to call our beloved sister Mrs.

of the life of Sister Haynes. She it was
who, after having spent years of toil with
her husband in his itimrant career and be?
ing hindered from further active work in
that life, became first Presiden t of this
Missionary Society, which remains as a
memorial of her life.
Resolved, that we each strive to pre?
serve a worthy memorial of her both in
our lifo and in this society.
Resolved that we express to her be?
reaved husband the deep sympathy which
we feel for him in his sorrow.
