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 pmes. 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 Otis." i 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 and fairness." '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 his followers." 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 thus: "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. Southern Race Klots. New York, Nov. 15. Concerning the race riots in North and South Car olina, Thomas Fortune said today that a meeting of colored citizens and oth ers would be held in . Cooper Union next Thursday to discuss the situation. At the meeting it is said that S. D. Bassett, United States minister to Ilayti, will preside. All of the pastors of Afro-American churches in New York will take part Many prominent white citizens have been invited to at tend the meet inn.
