a couple of months ago. The nw
from tho united Htalosthat the govern

commented upon dispassionately in
the German press, and it is significant
that tltla week two papers of such
standing as the Kolnische Zoltung and
the Vosslche Zoltung have published
long letters from Uormun merchants
settled in tho Philippine Islands, in
which American annexation Is strongly
advocated. A correspondent of the
Vossiobe Zeitung evon vigorously com
bats Germany making any attempt to
secure a portion of the islands, citing
weighty reasons therefor.
Another significant fact this weok
was that delegation representing
German and Gorman-Swiss firms in
the Philippine islands called at the
United States embassy to express hopes
that America would not relinquish
the islands and would not return them
to Spain, which tho delegation chimed
would mean a recurrence ot revolution,
and the perpetuation of commercial
troubles. The delegation also asked
