CONDUCTED THROUGH BELGIAN CONSUL Admiral to Attack, an Outlylnsr Fort, Make the signal "Do Yoa r renderf and Spanish to Hoist White Flag;. WASHINGTON, June 27. Admiral Dewey continued his testimony before the senate committee on the Philippines today. Re plying to questions put by Senator Patter son, he said that be had begun negotiations with the. governor general of the Philip- pines, General J.udens. for the surrender of tb.3 city, and the negotiations were con ducted through the Belgian consul, who after the death of the British consul, bad been very courteous In acting as a go-be-tweep. It was a diplomatic negotiation, no let ters being written. The admiral said he had Informed General Merrltt of the proffer of General Jaudena, but that he did not be lieve that Merrltt had taken "much stock In It." "I assured him that such was the rase," said the admiral, "but told him of the arrangement that before the surrender should take place I was to engage an out lying fort and make the signal,- according to the International code, 'do you sun-en- der,' after which the Spaniards- were to had not been there forty-eight hours before hoist the white flag on the southern bas- i,a was taking everything In sight provl tlon.

Asked by Mr. Tatterson to explain his statement that General Merrltt had not ... , . . . n , . . . accepted the repor that the Spaniard, had agreed to capitulate, Admiral Dewey said that was only his belief. "I do not be lleve," he said, "that the general entirely trusted the Spanish authorities. .Still he did not say so In so many words. I may add that I have since learned that aome of the Spanish officers were tempted1 to fire at us, then they did not do so. Even my own flag lieutenant did not accept tbelr proffer es In the best faith. I knew, however, that they would surrender, for I understood what straits they were in." Replying to a question as. to whether the agreement to surrender had been made public at the time of the attack upon Ma nila, Admiral Dewey said he thought not. "There are," he said, 'lots of things which are not communicated to the public." Mr. Patterson sought to secure from Ad miral Dewey an admission that Agulnaldo had Issued a proclamation of independence to the Flllnlno about the time of the sink- Ins of the Snanlsh sauadron. but the ad- mlral said he did not remember It. although It was possible that he might have done so.

The admiral's reply was; "Exactly so." Dewey Is Busy M Manila. Mr. Patterson next called attention to a number of proclamations forwarded by him to Washington in May, but Admiral Dewey said he did not remember having read them, and tn explanation of hla failure in thla re spect he said: The days and nights were not long enouch for me to get through with my work at that time.

Ha then ssld tbs senator had not Quoted him accurately, but he admitted that he had "ld Amimaido had gone to muii for pn- lags and plunder. He added: "You know the old saying, that 'all Is fair In war.' " "Do you consider It fair In war to assist a known plunderer and robber In an en- emy e territory to pillage without re straint?" "I believe It Is as t read history." "Then you admit that you assisted this robber and plunderer to organise, etc.?" "I didn't then call him a robber and plun derer; I called him the 'insurgent leader.' I have said hers that he was there for money and loot. 1 tbtnk those were my words and I think that Is what he was there for. Do you," he said, turning Interlocutor himself, "think he was there for anything else?" "I do," replied the senator. "Well, I don't," said the admiral, and as If to express his opinion still more em phatically, he repeated, "I don't," and added, "I swear I don't."

He then took his hat and left the room with a polite word of adieu, but without being formally dismissed. The examination of the admiral Will be continued tomorrow.

Hake .Sharp Criticism of Bill m Now Proposed. PLATT RETURNS VERY CUTTING REPLY Asserts that Colorado Senator Is Only Barking; t'pBeet Sugar Trast Trast.- WA6HINQT0N. June 27. Quits unex pectedly a sharp debate aross In the senate today. on the question of Cuban reciprocity. Mr. Teller ot Colorado) at whose Instance the senate committee on Cuban relations made Its investigation of the subject, de livered a spirited speech In opposition to reciprocity with Cuba. Ho charged that ths entire- reciprocity propaganda had been backed by the American Sugar Refining company. nd by Americans who were in terested financially In Cuban- sugar planta tions. The purpose, he said, was to strike down an Important agricultural Industry of this country. He wss willing to Join In a general revision of the tariff to meet changed conditions,- but unless the duties on Iron and steel and other products were reduced with those on sugar In order that the arrangement might be equitable the beet sugar growers never would consent to a reduction on their produot. - Mr. Piatt of Connecticut, chslrman ot the Cuban relations committee, replied to the Colorado " senator. He maintained that there waa nothing sordid in the desire to promote reciprocal relations between the. United States arm Tuba and said the mak ing of some concessions to Cuba was .a plain duty of this country. It was a duty this government owed to. Heel f as well as to Cuba, because absolutely friendly rela tions with the new republic were a neces sary means of defense: to this country un- less the UnlUd, States should annex thent Roosevelt's message of greeting and island. That, he hpped, would not be done, ! aa he regarded- annexation aa a grave menace to our insulations. Teller ' ( ses Nharp Words. After asking, for the printing of several documents Mr. f ellef preferred to the state ments made of (he, distress in Cuba and to .the statement that' unless the United States should give relief to the Island a revolution would occur. h Mr. Teller de- lared that the statements were, untrue and that there never' had been any condition In the island which warranted the statements. He asserted that It had been proved affirmatively that no such condition existed. "I say, said he, measuring my words, that never In piy1 experience In public life has there been so patent and open an at tempt to deceive the American people as He said the attempt at. deception waa made by those who were relying upon the well-known desire pf tbe American people o assist any .other people who were In distress. Discussing the beet sugar indus try, tbe Colorado senator said the question was one ot great. Importance to the people of the weat, They sjndled It and It did not ibko ineiu long 10 ascertain inai tne American ' Sugar Refining company the American Sugar trust was particularly ac tive In urging thj8j reduction ot the duty on Cuban sugar.''';' . He ' said there was. some desire on the part of the Cubans to . secure a reduction of duty op tobacco, but that was lost eight of In view of the propaganda for a reduc tion in the dutypn sugar. "There has been." be vdFfjHNWdt ."nqre misrepresenta tions snd misstatements about our obliga tions to Cuba- tnajTaboat almost shy other question. EversiO obligation which this country was- UndW tb -Ctiba: has been per formed," he"a1d,'aild 'he challenged any senator to Indicate 'any obligation which the United 8ates was under to the island. So Distress In Cnpa. .. There Is no distress In Cuba," he de clared, "and my correspondence' with the people pf the Island, prove this. The peo ple are not mendicants st our hands. The American - holders' of sugar lands In Cuba and the American Sugar Refilling company are at the bottom, ot this effort to change our financial system with reference to Cuba." : :- In conclusion he said the proposed bill of the committee on relation with Cuba proceeded on the theory that the United States could not produce its own sugar. This he declared was unfair to the people. Mr. Piatt of Connecticut, ohalrman of the committee on Cuban relatlohs. renlled brieny to Mr. Teller's argument; He de clared that It was In "the nsture ot sn attack by the beet sugar trust on' tbe re finers sugar trust. It Is." he Insisted, "entirely outside the question whether the' United States ought to enter into reciprocal relations with our nearest neighbor." In a brief reply to Mr. Platt'a statement. Mr. Teller referred to his expressed fesr of annexation as a "baby cry" and a childish attack on those who differed from him on the question of reciprocity. He declared that question had been started in the In terest of the great American augar trust, and that people had been deceived regarding the question, "by the purchased newspapers of this country." ' , The Cherokee Indian bill was then psssed. Mr. Allison then presented the conference report on the District of Columbia appro priation bill, and It was agreed to and thus passing ths measure. The conference report on the Choctaw and Chickaaaw Indian treaty bill was also agreed to. -j: The following bills, among other were passed: "To provide for the organisation of prl vats corporations In the district of Alaska. Authorising ths secretary ot tbe treasury to fix the salarlea ot the deputy collectors at the sub-ports of entry at Taeoma and Seattle, Wash., the aalary not to exceed $2,500 a year each; to Incorporate the So ciety of the Army ot Santiago de Cuba for tbe further distribution of the reports of the supreme court, extending the time (or making final proof la desert land eh tries In Yakima county, Washington.
