THE ULTIMATUM PREPARED
Amount Offered for the Island! Will
Probably Be Twenty Millions, Not
More The Cuban Question.
: .Paria, Nov. 23. The Spanish peace
commissioners have been notified that
the United States commissioners will
be ready to treat with them in joint
session tomorrow afternoon, y Unless
the Spaniards have an adequate reason
for further delay the two commissions
will join in the most important meet
fog thus far held. .
The American commissioners, in a
written communication, will declare
that the third article of the protocol re
garding the Philippines is onpahle of
only one fair construotion, that no arbi
tration is needed to elucidate its terms,
and that the United States cannot ad
mit any other power to figure here
purely as a lexicologist. They will
maintain that the two commissions are
charged to determine whether Spain or
the United States shall in the future
own the Philippines. ' '
This will be aocompanied by the
clear declaration that the United
States will possess the Philippines.
Following this declaration, the Amer
ican commissioners will lav before the
Spaniards two alternatives:
First To accept a sum of money from
the Unit'td States and to cede and evaO'
uate the Philippines.
Second To lose the Philippines to
the United States by conquest, with
the possibility of other territorial losses,
or indemnify the United States for the
added expense of conquest.
This communication may not be for
mally designated as an ultimatum, but
it will lack naught ot the conclusive'
iiess indicated by that word. This
will be so plain that the Spanish oom
misaioners will - scarcely, haggle for
money on the first alternative, nor
cherish any doubt of American action
under the second,' should the first be
No one here, except the American
oommissioners, know how much will be
tendered Spain as the cheapest and
. roost humane way of settling the d'ffl
cultv. She is exceedingly anxious to
scape the Philippine debt, and possi
bly the Bum to be offerod may be deter
mined bv an analysis of the debt, which
consists of $40,000,000 in bonds, on
which she realized $36,000,000. Of
the latter amount she is believed
have expended some $10,000,000
$11,000,000 in fighting the United
States and a part in attempting to quell
the Philippine insurgents. A reasons
ble guess nt the sum lor the tender
would be $20,100,000, although it may
fall below that.
The Cuban question may come again
tomorrow. The American commission
had thought the discussion on that
point finished but the Spanish com mis
eioners are reported to have declared
last week that the inortagages imposed
by Spain on the Cohan as well as on
the Philippine revenues must not be
impaired or questioned. This would
compel the American commissioners
soon and probably tomon'ow to de
mand whether Spain means to repudiate
the plain- compact of the protocol to
relinquish sovereignty over and title to
Cuba. - , Vy (, ;
Three weeks ago the Spanish commis
sioners accepted the Cuban article in
the protocol without conditions save
'that its embodiment in the treaty
should depend on art agreement here on
all the articles of the piotocol. Re
cently, however,' Spain's representa
tives have said that the Cuban matter
had only been temporarily passed and
was still in abeyance. '
DOING THEIR BEST.
Spaniards Will Be Out of Cuba by New
Havana, Nov. 22. Captain-General
Blanoo received from Paris today a
cable authorizing him to draw on Paris
lor $2,000,000 gold, to be applied in
the payment of the Spanish troops in
Cuba. This amount is in addition to
the proceeds of the diaft for 425,000
by the Madiid government on London,
which wai sold here last week.
The Spanish authorities are making
strenuous efforts to complete the evacu
ation by the end of the year.
Martinique has been selected as the
place of rendezvous of the Spanish
navy for evacuation purposes. The
Spanish auxiliary oruisers Patriots and
Meteoro, purchased in Get many before
the outbreak of hostilities, are expected
here on December 15, and will convoy
the Spanish boats from Cuban ports to
Martinique, where the Rapidio, Ponce
de Leon and Concha, from Porto Rico,
have already assembled, and from
whiub point all will sail for Spain.
Victim of Elevator Tire.
Toledo, O., Nov. 22. After two
months' of search, and the recovery of
18 dead, the grain handlers at the
Union elevator found the body of an
unknown man today. His apurance
indicated him to be a well-to-do man,
and it is supposed be was visiting the
elevator at the time of the explosion.
Knoxville, Tenn., Nov. 22. The
anti-cigarette law passed by the last
Tennessee legislature is declared con
stitutional in an opinion given to the
press today by Judge Caldwell, of the
supreme court of the state. The opin
ion declares that cigarettes are not le
gitimate articles of corumeice, because
tbey are wholly noxious and deleteri
ous to health, and therefore are not
within the provision of the federal con
stitution protecting legitimate commerce.
ANARCHY IN PORTO RICO.
Trade n the
Washington, Nov. 21. The cabinet
session today was devoted to a large
extent to consideration of complaints
that have reached the war department,
alleging that a state of practical an
archy prevails in Porto Rico. These
complaints asserted that the lawless
elements are committing depredations
of the gravest character, and the seri
ousness of the situation is inoreased
by the fact that United States troops
likewise have been guilty of gross mis-
conduot. Secretary Alger has cabled
General Biooke, inquiring as to the
accuracy of the complaints.
The most serious allegations are
against brigands and lawless elements
in the smaller towns aw ay from the
coast. It is said that taking advant
age of the unsettled state of the coun
try, due to the transfer of the govern
ment from Spain to the United States,
bands of men have organized for rob
bery and rapine, burning houses and
plantataions and levying tribute upon
the people wherever possible. In one
case, it is said, they made a raid on , a
small town of about 1,500 inhabitants,
15 miles from the nearest troops, and
burned and destroyed property to a

Yaquina; Or., Nov. 21. The British
shp Atalanta, oarryng a crew of 27 men
and loaded with 8,800 tons of wheat,'
from Tacqraa for ' South Africa, .was
wrecked near Alsea bay yesterday
morning, and so far as known there are
but three survivors. ; ;
The oause of the wreck .of the Ata
lanta and the circumstances attending
it, produce a tale most harrowing. The
mismanagement of the vessel by its
officers is ascribed as the cause of . the
disaster, and the crippling of the Ya
quina life-saving station by a penurious
policy of that department of the gov
ernment, adds horror to the situation.
The only three survivors aver that
some of their comrades on board the
ship may yet be alive. While the
members of the life-saving orew are in
sight of the wreck, they are so far
powerless to render assistance, owing
to the want of apparatus. Meanwhile
couriers scoured the beach and ooun
try adjacent for 10 miles, to procuie
horses to bring up the lifeboat and
The Atalanta lay about a mile off
shore, in a field of furious breakers.
Every swell passed over her works.
Each hour a section of the vessel was
seen to fall away, and the timbers float
toward the shore. A strong and steady
southwester aided the current from the
same direction to bear the wreckage
rapidly to the beach. It was this pow
er and agency, and this alone that en
abled the three sailors who survive to
escape the fate of their brethren. In
a lifeboat filled with water, partly dis
abled with wreckage, and without oars
to direct their craft, they were borne to
ten a firma, thus passing over a course
of nearly two miles.
One man, who was clad in simply a
shirt, more hardy than the others,
made his way along the beaoh. He
found a farmhouse and announced the
news, and solicited assistance for his
companions. When the unfortunates
on the beaoh were reached they were so
benumbed with cold as to appear beyond
help. It has required nearly 24 hours
for one of them to regain his powers of
mind and body. The resoued sailors
have been taken into oabins along the
The most complete and reliable story
of the wreck obtainable comes from
Frank Fogarty, a member of the
Yaquina life-saving crew, who . has
patiolled the beach in the vicinity of
the wreck. Captain Clark ordered him
back to the station, which had been
entirely deserted, except by the wives
of the orew, to guard there tonight.
"The officers of the Atalanta paid the
penalty of their folly with their lives,'
said Fogarty. "Not one escaped,
less he is penned up in the forecastle,
to be released tonight or tomorrow,
"The survivors have started the story
down on the beach that the wreck ii
more the result of oarelessness on the
part of the captain than of adverse
weather. It is to the effect that the
Atalanta was racing down the coast
with another sailing ship to make bet
ter time, and having a more advan
tageous tack, against the southwester,
he steered close into Cape Foulweather.
Not Bee ing the lighthouse, he supposed
the vessel to be some distance from
shore. This caused him to continue
his southeast tack too long.
"TJie logbook at the life-saving sta
tion shows that Thursday morning, be
tween midnight and 6 o'clock, when
the Atalanta was on this tack, the Cape
Foulweather lighthouse was concealed
by fog and heavy sheets of rain. Nev
ertheless, the survivors, according to
report, do not exouse .the policy of the
captain. Had not a race been on, tbey

that the United States will decline ar
