Bad Blood Apparent Among'
AMICABLE RELATIONS DESIRED
President MoKinley Ashed to End the
Slights Offered the Insurgents by
Some Naval and Army Officers.
Rnnn TTniKr. Nov. 16. The Filioino
tatives of General Aeuinr
aldo and the Filipino government here
have drawn up what they designate "an
appeal to President McKinley and the
Amorinan nermle." but what is in real
ity rather in the nature of an arraign
ment oi .amencuu uuuuy i mo tuuip
John Barrett, lormoriy unitea states
minister at Siam, was asked by the
junta to present the memorial to the
United States government and people.
Mr. Barrett replied that, while he could
have no offioial influence regarding tl e
status of the .matter, he was satisf edl
that a dooument which represented the
sentiments of the Filipinos would re
ceive at the hands of the Americans all
the consideration it merited.
The memorial says:
"We, the Hong Kong representatives)
of our countrymen, appeal to the great
and good judgment of President McKin-
ey and the spirit of fairness of the
Amerioan people, as it is always shown
n their regard for the petitions of the
weak and oppressed.
'While the fate of the islands is still
undecided, and we are doing all in our
power to pievent a conflict between the
Amerhans and Filipinos awaiting;
patiently the conclusion of the Paris',
conference, we implore the Intervention;
of the president, supported by the will;
of the people, to end the slights shownj
our leaders, soldiers and people by some
of the Amerioan naval and military
officers, although we do not wish to
wrong . Admiral Uewey or Ueneral
The memorial then avers that "false
reports are spread broadoast alleging
that the Filipinos are responsible for
the friqtlon, points out that the tension
is becoming greater every day, and any '
moment a shot may be fired by an irre
sponsible American or Filipino soldier
leading to great bloodshed, ' and be
seeches the United States "to help the
junta to control our own people by di
recting American officers to temper
their offices with friendship,' justice
'From the commencement of the
hostilities," continues the memorial,
the Filipinos acoeded to all American
demands; but after bottling up the
Spaniards in Manila, the Filipinos
were completely ignored when the
Americans advanced, and thus de
prived of the fruits of victory. .Now,
after months of campaigning, the Fili
pinos troops have been ordered beyond
the suburbs, where they have no quar
ters, and where supplies are difficult to
obtain. All our launches have been
seized beoause of foolish rumors that
we would attack the Americans, and
when we asked explanations we were
not even answered. The Spaniards, of
late the enemies of the Americans, have
been shown every consideration, while
the Filipinos, their friends and allies,
are often treated as enemies."
After asserting that the Filipinos
uniformly aoted upon the advice of the
Americans and were informally recog
nized by them until Manila was cap
tured, the memorial goes on to say:
' We can only attribute this sudden
change to orders from Washington to
American officials at Manila to avoid
compromising the American govern
ment by a recognition of the Filipinos
or their government. The Amerioans
are carrying out these instructions liter
ally, losing sight of the former friendly
intercourse and assistance and of the
BBsmance the Amerioan officials gave
Aguinaldo, which he communicated to
After emphasizing the junta's "abso
lute confidence in President McKinley
and the people of the great republio,"
stating that "our protests are not
prompted by animosity, but are direct
ed against conditions existing at
Manila, and not against the Amerioan
government and people," acknowledg
ing "our gratiude to Amerioan arms foi
destroying the Spanish power in the
Philippines," and expressing "a hope
that the islands are cot to be returned
to Spain," the memorial concludes
"We await the arbitrament of the
peace commission with even greater in
terest than the Amerioans, beoanse it
ooncerns our land, our happiness and
our freedom. In the meantime we
shall pray for peaoe and a perfect under
standing with the Americans. "
Sugar War Is Over.
New York, Nov. 16. The Tribune
says: The Amerioan Sugar Refining
Company yesterday advanced the price
on all grades of domestic refined sugars
l-8o a pound, this move being prompt
ly followed by the Independent re
fineries. The increase makes the price
of granulated 5 I-80 a pound, or 4.84o
net. inolusive of trade discounts, and
is the first general advance since the
beginning of the cutting of prices be
tween the American- Sugar Refining
Company and the outside company.
