Americans With Difficulty Restrained

Situation at Iloilo Remains In-
New York, Jan. 17. A special to the
Herald from Hong Kong says :
The Herald's Manila correspondent
reports a strict censorship on dispatches
The latest advices, dated January 13th
ays that ihe situation In the Philip
pines is etill acute. Aguinaldo is hold
, ing bis forces in check with difficulty,
and natives have been arrested for smug
gling arms into the walled city. On one
occasion a coffin was found filled with
. arms, and on another six Mauser rifles
' and a stock of ammunition were iiis-
ffcovered hidden in a load of straw.
' The natives residing in the city pre
diet an attack on Manila Sunday, the
15th, but the foreigners maintain that
there will be no attack if the Americans
do not precipitate it.
5 The position of the Americans is very
unpleasant. Their Spanish prisoners
are nnfriendly and the hostile natives
are numerous and well armed both in
side and putside the city.
: In Iloilo the situation remains the
same except that natives are intrench
Ing themselves, they have blockaded the
river by sinking barges loaded with
The native troops outside of Manila
are most insolent, and it is hard work to
restrain the Americans. The Filipino
oldiery come ont to their lines, cIobo up
to the American outposts, load their
rifles, deliberately point them at the
American soldiers, and then walk de
risively back to their own lines.
- Under such conditions as these there
tuight be a fight at almost ny moment
; An American Protectorate.
: Nkw York, Jan. 17. A dispatch to the
Herald from Hong Kong says: Rev
Clav McCaulev. Drofeisor of theolozv at
Tokio, who recently arrived from the
l'hilipoirn-s. says that as the result of
his study of the situation at Manila, ha
thinks there are only three ways open to
the United States to solve the Philippine
Question. The first is annexation by
jorce of purchase. To use force means
the most disastrous foreign war in
American history, entailing great loss of
life and expenditure of money. More
over, it would be a violation of national
' The second solution Is a complete sov
ereignty from Spain to a Filipino repub
lic and the retention by the United
States for her own use of Manila bay
and port, just as Hong Kong la kept
by Great Britain. This solution means
the exposure of the defenseless Philip
pines to the greed of the powers, with a
consequent acnte crisis in Europe over
the lar Eastern question.
; The third possible solution is autono-

This means an independent Filipino
government controlling the administra
tion of internal affairs, the United States
taking charge of the supreme judiciary
and foreign relations such as the power
to make war or treaties, while having
charge of the customs. This solution,
Mr. McCanley thinks, might bring about
a tutelage which would result for the
future in the absolute independence of
the islands, or voluntary annexation to
the United States

guished men in military and civil life
were arranged about the bier on the
floor of the hall, while the galleries were
occupied by the families of those who

Negotiations Looking to Spanish Recog
nition of the Filipino Insurgents
New York, Jan. 17. A dispatch to
the Herald from Paris says: News has
been received here that the Spanish
government has begun negotiations with
Aguinaldo, through the agency of cer
tain Filipinos in Madrid, for the release
of the Spanish prisoners. Having be
gun to treat directly it h the insurgents.
Spain is likely to go a step further and
accord them the recognition hitherto re
fused by auy government. The idea is
to call upon Presideut McKiiiley to re
deem his promise and obtain the release
of the prisoners.
The difficulties confronting the Amer
ican government are all understood in
Madrid, and as soon as official recog
nizanceof them is obtained, the gov
ernment will coneider itself free to treat
with the Filipino government if neces
sary as power to power, in order to se
cure the liberty of its subjects. That
Spain should take such revenge upon us
would surprise nobody,
Handj's Body Reported Found.
Corvallib, Jan. 17. Reports are in
circulation that the body of A. K. Han
dy, who was lost in the coast mountains
December 30, has been found, and that
a bullet hole in the head indicated foul
play, While not confirmed, the report
is generally believed, because J. H.
Wilson, son-in-law of Handy, was this
morning summoned to Falls City in con
nection with the case. Falls City is
twelve miles from the place where Han
dy was last seen alive.

President lellifcj Announces His In
tention to Order It.
Eagan Has Eliminated all Objectionable
Language From His Statement
Incident Closed so Far as Commis
sion is Concerned.
Washington, Jan. 1". President Mc
Kinley announced to the cabinet at the
regular meeting today that he hits de
termined to court martial Commissary
General Ecan. Alger was not at the
cabinet meeting, but with Adjutant
General Corbin was at the White House
in conference with the president on the
subject just prior to the cabinet session
An order for the court martial probably
will be made today.
Just prior to the cabinet meeting Gen
eral Miles made a rather unusual call
upon two Of the members of the cabinet,
Hays and Long. He had just returned
to the city from New York, and when
spoken to with reference to the Eagan
case adhered to his original declaration
that this was not the time for him to
act, if at all, leaving the implication
that If the commission or the adminis
tration did not act it would then be
time for him to take some steps.
Washington, Jan. 17. The war in
vestigating commission today stated that
the amended statement of Eagan would
be made public, and newspaper men
were allowed access to it. Eagan has
eliminated all objectionable language
and the phraseology has been altered
frequently. Eagan while referring to
Miles as the "senior general" resents
any resumption of Miles' superiority,
and asserts that he (Eagan) is as good,
old and experienced a soldier as Miles.
He also criticises the lattet's attack on
the beef industry as iufamous. It Is
believed that so far as the commission is
concerned the incident is now closed.
Colonel Gibson, distributing agent of
the National Beef Association at San
tiago, testified before the commission
today. Gibson said the canned corn
beef furnished at Santiago was unfit for
use. The commission then adjourned

Disastrous Result of the Breaking of a
Dam at Cleveland A Splendid
Bridge Swept Away.
Clitki.and, O , Jan. 18. About 1:15
this morning a dam under the Wilson
avenue bridge gave way. Back of the
dam ia a body of water a mile and a half
long, hundreds of feet wide and in places
twenty 'five to thirty feat deep.
The break in the dam has allowed tor
rents of water to pour down on the flats
below It. Ihe propei ty loss is already

which seems inevitable, it will be enor

Standard Oil Company, the Cleveland
Paper Mills, the Flick slaughter-house,
and other manufacturing plants, There
are but few people living in the track of
the flood, and these were all warned and
sought safety on higher ground.
The cause of the flood ia the recent
heavy rains, the melting of snow from
the hillsides, and a pond of several
acres overflow ing. Streams of several
miles up the gulley have addfd their
quota of wa er.
At 3 o'clock the right pier of the bridge
fell. The Wilson-avenue bridge is a

built but a few months. It cost 350,

Stockmen Settle Their Difference.
North Yakima, Wash., Jan. 17.
Over 150 sheep and cittle men of Yak!
ma, Kittitas and Klickitat counties were
here today, to meet Superintendent
Cioes, of the forest reset ve, and make
applications for erasing lands for the
coming season. Some differences hav
ing arisen as to the allotments for sheep
and cattle, a meeting was called at the
Yakima hotel this afternoon to discuss
the matter. A committee of ten was ap
pointed and lands were set aside for the
cattle men. The report of the com
mittee was accepted, and all differences
settled amicably, with very little de
bate. The rapid growth of the stock
raising industry in Central Washington
is etiown by the tact that men repre
senting nearly 250,000 sheep and over
5000 cattle were here to apply for allot
ments for grazing lands.
GOLD IN UMA
Five Claims Were Filed Yesterday and
Large Prospecting Parties Will
Soon Start Out.
Pendleton, Jan. 17. Today in Re
corder Maloney'a office were filed records
of five placer mining claims, which have
been located at Maxwell station, on the
Umatilla river, forty miles above here,
and five miles below the town of Uma
tilla. The filing of these claims devel
ops the fact that several men in Pendle
ton had been planning to go down to
Mixwell on a prospecting tour, having
firm faith in the finding of gold in suf
ficient quantities to constitute a good
For years it has been known that
gold existed in the millions pf tons of
sand scattered all along the Columbia
and Snake rivers lor hundreds of miles
on either side and iu the beds of both
rivers. This gold is fine and it Is hard
to separate from the sand. It will not
be extravagance to aeseit that millions
of dollars' worth of the yellow metal lie
in these sands. But it cannot be sepa
rated from the sand unless some method
be discovered which will enable the
handling of a greater quantity of sand
to the man employed than can now be
Five Boys Drowned.
Schanton, Pa., Jan. 17. Five small
boys were drowned today at South Gib
son, a country hamlet near Foster, Sus
quehanna county. After the morning
school session six boys got a big sled and
coaBted from the roadway down a short,
steep hill, at the foot of which is a mill
pond. A thaw had weakened the ice,
and it broke under the weight of the
sled. The sled and all but one of the
boys shot under the ice several rods. In
his excitement the lad who escaped lost
valuable time by running back to the
school to give the alarm, instead of no
tifying residents near at hand. Four
bodies have been recovered.

"When the steamship Alameda left
Alpia, January 12, a revolution had
