WORD TO THE FILIPINOS
PROCLAMATION CIRCULATED BEAR
ING AGUDYALDO'S SAME.
Appeals to Natives to Disregard
American Commission, Except to
Get All They Can From. It.
MANILA, May 24. Two rebel docu
xaents have lately been circulated In Ma
nila, the most Important of which Is an
alleged proclamation from Aguinaldo
concerning the coming Civil Commission.
The proclamation warns the Filipino peo
ple to beware of the commission and lti
promises of future benefits, and begs
them never to give up their arms In
the vain hope of thereby enjoying ulti
mate freedom and happiness. The proc
lamation states that the commission is
appointed by President McKlnley. and
not by the American Congress; that It has
not authority to treat or take any action
whatever in tho name of the Govern
ment, and predicts for the commission
headed by Judge Taft the same end as
that which attended the Peace Commis
sion of last year, which Aguinaldo de
scribes are farcical and ridiculous. He
dwells at considerable length upon state
ments to show this commission has no
legal or official standing, and begs, im
plores and orders the Filipino people not
to be deceived by them nor to give up
their arms upon their representations.
He then goes on to say that if the Com
missioners visit the smaller towns and
provinces of Luzon they are to be re
ceived well and with enthusiasm.
"Ask them for the kind of municipal
government you most desire, and be not
afraid to speak boldly to them. Remem
ber the dark days of Spanish outrages
are past, and that the Americans allow
freedom of speech." In other words, get
all you can out of the commission, but
put no faith In them.
The proclamation ends with cries for
Filipino liberty and Independence, is
signed by Aguinaldo, and dated May i,
on the Island of Pollllo, which is situ
ated on the east coast of Luzon. This is
the first time an alleged proclamation
from Aguinaldo has found its way into
Manila for over six months, and many
people declare It Is a forgery and ema
nates from the Filipino Junta at Hong
Kong. No proof has been obtained to
sustain this theory, and there Is just as
much reason to believe the document is
legitimate as to claim that it is spurious.
As far as Its effect and influence over
the Filipino -people are concerned. It is
sufficient that it be signed by Agulnal
dVs nime to carry great weight with
The proclamation is very similar In
purport to one circulated here about 10
days, ago, printed in Spanish and sept
over to Manila from Hong Kong by the
Junta. These proclamations were con
cealed in the soles of shipments of shoes,
and were very generally circulated
throughout the city. The other Insurgent
communication referred to is a long letter
from General Trlao to the foreign Con
suls in Manila, in which he attempted to
vindicate the Filipino people from any
responsibility in the recent massacres of
Spanish prisoners in the Camarines Prov
inces. Sentences In the Array.
Captain William F. Hancock, of the
Sixth Artillery, now stationed in Manila,
has been found guilty by a general court
martial of violation of the 62d and 70th
articles of war, and been sentenced to
be reduced 10 numbers In the grade of
Captain of Artillery. He has been re
leased from arrest and returned to duty.
From the specifications of the charges
brought and sustained against Captain
Hancock, It appears that, while being
marked upon the sick report of his bat
tery as "sick in quarters," he was on
February 28 in the reading-room of the
Bohemian Club, without due authority
from his commanding officer, and that
Captain Hancock was disrespectful to
end did disobey the orders of his com
Musician Julius Arnold, Company M.
Twenty-fifth Infantry, who was tried on
the charge of murder before a general
court-martial, has been found guilty and
sentenced to be dishonorably discharged,
to forfeit all allowance due him, and to
be confined at hard labor for the remain
drr of his natural life. Arnold killed
Scnora Salas, a native woman of Maga
loig, Luzon, by shooting her with a pis
tol January 15.
The Spanish papers in Manila comment
cheerfully on the sentence, and declare
their pleasure upon seeing discipline so
well enforced among the rank and file of
Orders have been published from the
Governor-General's office announcing the
firdlng, sentence and review in the case
of Angel Padua, a 13-year-old native boy,
who was arraigned and tried on the
charge of murder before a military com
m'sslon at Hatangoa last March. The
commission found the boy guilty and sen
tenced him to be confined at hard labor
for 20 years. This sentence was commut
ed to five years by the Governor-General.
PHILIPPINE CIVIL SERVICE.
Ei ery Precaution to Get Honest and
Efficient Men There.
MANILA, July L The American Philip
pine Commission is carefully studying the
a; proachlng necessity for the substitu
tion for Army officers performing civil
functions of civil service men, and has
asked the Washington Government to
send examiners to the Philippines to hold
c! 11 service examinations here at the
same time as in the United States, with
the idea of creating a Philippine civil
service board. The commission is deter
rr'ned that every precaution shall be
taken to Insure honest, efficient civil ser
vice among Filipinos and Americans. It
Is the general opinion that circumstances
here require the appointment of the class
of men best able to withstand corrupt In
fluences, and It Is believed that.no poli
tical adventurers or their proteges will
be able to secure appointments In the

HUNG FROM BALLOON BY A LEG
How a Boy "Was Carried lOOO Feet
Unintentionally Into the Air.
New York Herald.
Whisked from earth and hanging by
the leg from a rapidly rising balloon. An
drew Malchofsky. 15 years old, was car
ried a thousand feet into the air at
Coney Island late yesterday afternoon,
and only saved from a death by the cool
ness and courage of the aeronaut whose
balloon had snatched him up. Thousands
of visitors at the seasldo resort saw tho
boy carried away and heard his frantic
cries for help. More than one knelt upon
tho sands and prayed for the lad's- de
liverance from periL One of the attrac
tions at Coney Island Is a balloon ascen
sion and a parachute drop. The aero
naut Is known as "Kid Benjamin." He
gives no other name.
While the balloon was being inflated
yesterday afternoon no visitor was more
interested than Andrew Malchofsky.
Finally "Kid Benjamin" gave the word
to let go.
The balloon shot upward. Even whllo
the crowd was cheering one of tho
dangling ropes whipped around Malchof
sky'a right leg, making a half hftch, and
before he knew what had happened he
was high In tho air.
He hung helpless half way between the
balloon and parachute In constant danger
that the rope would loosen and let him
Shouts of horror warned the aeronaut.
The watching crowd saw him glance
downward and then make preparations
to save the lad's life.
He shouted to the boy to grasp the
rope with both hands and hold on tight.
When these instructions had been obeyed
the aeronaut clambered down from his
perch beneath the balloon and succeeded
In knotting the rope securely about the
boy's body below bis arms.
Benjamin did not dare to make his cus
tomary parachute jump, leaving .the lad
attached to the balloon.
He sat fast and the balloon, cooling,
gradually settled earthward, finally com
ing to rest only a lew blocks from where
It arose. Malchofsky wafted only to be.

as a trolley-car would carry him.
OLD SILVER FOR BRIDES.
It the Finest Gift Ton Can Give
New York Sun.
"Here I am," said the June bride, as
she was unpacking her presents after
the wedding trip, "with seven different
coats of arms on my silver, and yet none
of them belongs to me or my husband.
So much for the fashion of making pres
ents of old sliver at weddings. It will at
least be a pleasure to look up the crests
In some work on heraldry and speculate
as to the probable owners of my silver
at some future time. A mustard pot, four
salt cellars, a large pepper cruet and a
cream jug are the seven pieces marked
with crests that are all different and
plainly belonging to no branch of the

girl would accept so gratefully .somebody
else's old silver, however valuable Jt
might be. But there Is nothing smarter
today for a wedding present than this old
English plate, and even If It's battered a
little bit and rather out of shape, the
girl who receives old English silver may
know that she Is getting something that
was not only costly, but Is regarded as
the finest thing that she can have. It is
always a little interesting to speculate
how they happened to set out of the pos
session of the family that owned them
before. Whether they were stolen by
the servants or sold by Impoverished
younger sons, it Is never possible to tell.
It Is certain, though, that they are to be
gotten In this country only by paying
large prices for them."
The most popular designs In table sliver
today are the reproductions of the Geor
gian or other old patterns. Some effort
has been made to put the Gothic patterns.
also popular, upon the market, but they
have to struggle against the general ob
jection to all articles of Gothic design for
domestic use. It Is a surprise to most
persons seeking small silver that the
makers do not reproduce more generally
than they do the Georgian patterns In
certain forms that are always In demand.

Old Chinese Interpreter.
New York Tribune.
One of the .most widely known citizens
of the United States In the Chinese Em
pire Is Robert Hall Maclay, the acting
Interpreter of the consulate, who Is the
oldest interpreter In the American service
in China, his original commission to the
Shanghai Consulate-General having been
issued by President Hayes and Secretary
Evarts, on June 30. 1879. Mr. Maclay is
descended from Senator William Maclay,
the first United States Senator that Penn
sylvania sent to Congress at the close
of the Revolution, early In Washington's
Presidency. Senator Maclay's term be
gan In January, 17S9, and he was a warm
personal friend of George Washington,
having served under him as assistant
Commissary during the Revolution.
Robert Hall Maclay went to Tien Tsin
in 18S1, being at once appointed by Con
sul Fisher, as Interpreter to the Ameri
can Consulate. After several years'
service he resigned In 1883, as he wished
to -visit England and France. After
spending a few years in London and
Paris, he returned to Tien Tsin via the
Red Sea, and in 1S96 was once more ap

MAY STILL LIVE.
Perhaps Others Than Von Ketteler
Hare Not Seen Slain.
WASHINGTON. July L Today's ad
vices to the State Department, made uo
of two cablegrams from Consul-General
Goodnow, at Shanghai, brought the for
eign Ministers at Pekln along a day fur
ther In safety, showing that they were
all alive, with the probable exception of
the German Minister, who. It seems like
ly has been murdered. Some enccurago
ment Is drawn by the officials from the
fact that other Ministers were alive on
the later date, for the officials believe
that diplomatic representatives at Pekln
could not have been preserved through
the fury of the first stages of the out
break only to fall victims to sober second
thought. There Is also at least the Indi
cation that the Chinese Government it
self was protecting them. On the other
hand, the State Department advices that
the notoriously anti-foreign Prince
Tuan. was In complete control at Pekln
was regarded as an exceedingly grave
development and as tending to fix clearly
responsibility for the happenings of the
past three weeks directly upon the Pekln
An ameliorating condition is the refusal
of the great Viceroys, themselves of al
most absolute power la their provinces,
to be controlled from Pekln in their atti
tude toward foreigners. A high official
of the State Department said today that
there Is nothing new to do but to follow
out the course the State Department has
already adopted, namely, to have the
United States Consuls put themselves In
communication with the Viceroys of the
provinces, treating the central govern
ment at Pekln as incapacitated for ad
ministrative work, and In the meanwhile
doing all In their power to protect the
foreigners In their respective districts.
The signs of amicable disposition on the
part of these Viceroys is probably the
basis for the hope that they can be In
duced at least to stand neutral and keep
their own provinces In order If it shall
be necessary to direct hostilities energet
ically against the Pekln Government.
There is , authority for the statement
that our Government feels that what
must be done at once Is to drive forward
a relief force to Pekln. regardless of the
strength required. So far. It has not been
regarded necessary to do more in the way
of military preparations to this end than
has been done, and consequently no fur
ther reinforcements have been ordered
to Taku. There Is much doubt here as
to the sufficiency of the force now there
to undertake the work. Admiral Kerapff
yesterday reported that 14,000 men of all
arms were ashore, without stating defi
nitely where they were. It Is not known
whether or not the second expedition di
rected against Pekln has yet started from
Taku or Tien Tsin. In this state of Ig
norance as to the military situation. It la
not possible to act Intelligently from
Washington In the direction of adding to
our naval and military strength beyond
the steamers, marines and regular sol
diers already under orders for China. It
would seem that to accomplish effective
work some kind of an understanding must
be reached among the powers interested
beyond the vague one under which they
are now proceeding.
This Government has not yet regarded
the developments as demanding the as-
i sembling of Congress In extra session to
declare war, and It Is possible tnat tne
dispatch of more reinforcements to China
from Manila and the United States may
not require Congressional action, as long
as the object Is strictly to succor Amer
icans In distress and danger.
While there was no formal Cabinet
council today. Secretary Hay had at va
rious times with him members of the
Cabinet for the discussion of the condi
tion of affairs in China. It Is understood
no change of policy was determined upon.

DOESN'T ENVY THE RICH.
Denver Barber Ha Been Contented
Since He Shaved William Astor.
"I got over envying the rich many years
ago," said P. J. Mendel, one of the most
erudite barbers In Chris Rowedders shop,
as he dabbled on another brushful of
lather and began rubbing It In with an
easy, contemplative motion of his expe
"How was it?" asked the customer, as
soon as Mr. Mendel loosened his grip on
his chin and gave him power of speech.
"Oh, it was old William Astor, father
of John Jacob Astor, who cured me."
"Is that so? Where was this?"
"Up at Rhlnebeck, N. ., where the old
man's country home, Rokeby, Is located,
you know about 17 miles above Pough-
keepsle, on the Hudson. I lived there 18
years and used to go up and shave Mr.
Astor every day when he was out in the
country. Oh, yes, T knew the old mhn
well. He visited me 'twice In Denver be
fore he died.
"But what I was going td tell you was
how the old gentleman cured me of my
envy of the rich. He- took me down one
day and showed me his famous yacht,
the Nourmahal. It was a beaut, I tell
you. When I had looked through the
grand salon and the elegant staterooms, I
" "Mr. Astor. I certainly do envy you.
with all your wealth and your fine yacht
and houses and lands.'
" 'Don't do It. Mendel; don't envy roe at
all,' said Mr. Astor. You are far better
off as you are. You can go home at
night and be happy with your little fam
ily. If you want to go on a modest little
flyer, all you've got to do Is to run down
to Coney Island, meet your friends, load
yourself up on beer and be happy, while
I have always to be. on my p's and q's;
have to dress for dinner, go out and be
bored at theater and opera, receive all
kinds of people and be worried to death
In many ways.
" 'On my yacht I have 49 people to watch
everything I do and gossip about me.
When I'm In New York my wife Is In
Europe; when I'm here at Rokeby my
wife Is at Newport. Family? I have no
family, and as for happiness huh!'
"That vnir th. wn h talked, and I've
I been contented ever since.
"That was. a fine man, old William As
tor," proceeded Mr. Mendel, shaving very
particularly in the neighborhood of his
customer's "Adam's apple." "Had one of
the easiest faces to, shave you ever saw.
Big fellow, too; stood six feet two and
weighed 200 pounds, and didn't carry any
extra cargo, either."

sitlon he would take relative to the
money plank of the- platform. He sold:
"I am In favor of the reaffirmation of
the Chicago platform In general; also the
adoption of a plank explicitly renewing
the pledge for the free and unlimited
coinage of silver and gold at ths ratio
of 16 to 1, Independent of what any other
nation may do Some urge that an ex
plicit plank relating to bimetallism be
omitted. Why not, then, omit an ex
plicit plank relating to the trusts? The
Chicago platform contained an anti-trust
plank. Why should the convention, of 1SC0
be content with a mere reaffirmation of
the Chicago platform, so far as blmetal
isra Is concerned, and yet adopt a speci
fic plank relating to the trusts? Some
will say that because of a growth of
trusts under this Administration a speci
fic anti-trust plank Is necessary. That Is
true. It Is especially true in the opinion
of Democrats whom I have the honor in
part to represent, that because of the in
creased power under this Administration
of the money trust, the greatest of them
all, an explicit plank on the money ques
tion Is of the highest importance. The
Chicago platform favored arbitration and
denounced government by Injunction, and
yet gentlemen who urge that the money
question be dealt with only by way of

"We do not agree that It is practical
politics to avbld the great principle to
which Mr. Bryan's efforts have largely
been devoted. If we are to have a dodge
for a platform, then let us have a dodger
for a candidate But If we are to nomi
nate a man who believes In being explicit
in his Dledxes to the people, then let us
adopt a platform that will be consistent
with the character and record of the can
didate. Some gentlemen speak of the
'seriousness' Involved In explicit reaf
firmation of free and unlimited coinage at
the ratio of 15 to L They forget that the
Democracy regarded that as so Important
a principle that it turned Its back upon a
National Administration that sought to
sacrifice that principle. They forget that
ever since their candidate for the Presi
dency entered public life he has cham
pioned that principle, and that during all
that time the most powerful Influences
have been brought to bear upon him to
induce him to abandon thA principle.
There has been no sign of weakness on
Mr. Bryan's part, and yet. In spite of
the fact that he stands where he has al
ways stood. In favor of blmetallsm at the
ratio of 1 to 1, men who opposed him In
1895 have been flocking to his support.
These have had no reason to believe that
in order to win their votes Mr. Bryan
would abandon his convictions. And yet
we are now told that it is important for
the convention of 1900 to trim, while the
Democratic candidates refuse to trim.
The very fact that It has been, persist
ently urged that the-piatiorm snau not
be explicit on the meney question makes
It Imperative that the platform be ex
plicit, I think It safe to say that any
platform that omits the specific pledge of
Independent blmetallsm at the ratio of
16 to 1 will not be adopted without a

KANSAB CITY, July, 1. Senator Fettl
grew, of South Dakota, one of the leaders
of the Silver-Republican forces, arrived
here today. He did not come to attend
the convention of the Silver Republicans,
although he was one of the organlzera
of the movement, but as a member of a
committee appointed by the Populist con
vention, held recently In Bloux Falls, ,to
attend the convention for the purpose of
urging the nomination of Charles A,
Towne for Vice-President. Senator Petti
grew Is vigorous In his. advocacy of
Towne's nomination, and also of the addi
tion of ff plank declaring flatly for the
free and unlimited coinage of sliver at
the ratio of 16 to 1- He believes the con
vention will make a specific declaration
on the money question, and that declara
tion will be fof the free coinage as dis
tinctly as was that of the Chicago plat
form. "This convention will write Its own
platform," ho declared earnestly. "The
slmDle reaffirmation of the Chicago plat
form would not be satisfactory to the
people. They have had enough backing
and filling and demand a straight-out
declaration of principles. This Is not to
be the convention of 1896 any more than
was that the convention of 1B92. Each
National convention writes its own plat
form. This convention will do so. Of
course, practically, the platform, at least
so far as the money plank is concerned.
Is written already. It will reflect Mr.
"Then you think a specific declaration
In favor of free coinage at the ratio of
16 to 1 wjll be Inserted In the platform?"
"I do, certainly," the Senator replied
emphatically. "Mr. Bryan has stated dis
tinctly hla vieWB on that point In recent
utterances and writings, and It is known
absolutely that he favors such a declara
tion. His desires undoubtedly will be re--spected
by the convention."
"What, In your opinion. Senator, Is the
object of Governor Hill's visit to Mr.
"Oh," he replied laughingly, "Hill has
gone to Lincoln to get a bean. He has
no chips with which to get In the game
and he had to have some. He thought he
might get some from Mr. Bryan."
CALIFORNIA AND HAWAn.
Maarnlre Says Ho Doesn't Think Bry
an Will Meddle at All.
PUEBLO, Colo., July L The California
and Hawaiian delegations to the Nation
al Democratic Convention arrived here
over the Rio Grande at 7 P. M., and left
by way of the Santa Fe at midnight.
They are due to arrive in Kansas City at
8:45 P. M. Owing to the lateness of the
train, the delegation decided to stop
over at Pueblo Instead of going to Colo
rado Springs. The rest of five hours was
welcome to the party.
Congressman James G. Maguire, dele-gate-at-largo
from California, and recog
nized as one of the stanchest admirers
of W. J. Bryan on the Pacific Coast, was
asked today by a representative of the
Associated Press as to the probable ac
tion of the platform committee at Kansas
City concerning a specific mention of IS
"I would not hazard on opinion on ths
subject," said Mr. Magulro. "That is
something which wll) come prominently
before the committee at an early meet
ing." "Do you think Mr. Bryan's wishes will
be considered In this connection?" was
"I do not believe Mr. Bryan will at
tempt to Influence the action of the com
mittee in the slightest manner," was the
reply. "The committee on platform will
be free without reirard to outside in
fluences." "Has California any choice of candi
dates for the Vice-Presidential nomina
tion?" "No, California will be In favor of the
candidate for Vice-President who can
command the strongest support in th
Middle West, as we believe the states
of Ohio and Indiana will bo the great
battle ground in this campaign."
"Will Mr. Bryan be consulted as to
the Vice-Presidential candidate?"
"1 think not. Anyone selected by tho
convention will be acceptable to Mr.
The Hawaiian delegates, headed by
Prince David Kawananakoa, have ac
cepted the invitation of the C&Ufo'rnlana
to share their headauarters at the Coates
House In Kansas Oltv. Prlnco David
was asked todav bv an Associated Press
representative what rncnltion the 3a
wallans expected at the hands of the
"We certainly xnrt the convention to
follow the precedent set by the Republl-
cans at Phlladelohla. where the dele
gates were permitted to sit among those
from the slates." replied the prince.
"Has your organization any special
purpose In view In sending a delegation
to Kansas City?"
"We wish to be generally recognised
by the- people as a part of the United
States. I do not know that we have any
special purpose other than that. The Re
publicans organized and sent delegates
to Philadelphia, so those of us having
Democratic tendencies did likewise,"
Indiana and, evr Yorlc Alliance.
KANSAS CITY. July L Three of the
delcgates-at-lorge from Indiana James
Murdock, G. V. Menzles and Hugh Dough
erty cafied on Richard Croker this after
noon to propose an alliance offensive and
defensive between the States of Indiana
and New York. The Indiana men repre
sented to the leader of Tammany that
the States of Indiana and New York had
always gone the same way r.& National
elections, and were always on the win
ning side. They then made the proposi
tion to him that in all matters pertaining
to the present convention the states
should stand together and take united ac
tion. The proposal is said to hdve pleased
Mr. Croker, and he told the Indiana men
that he was glad to hear the proposition
from them, and would be glad to take It
under advisement, but could not under
take to give them assurances until he had
conferred with the members of his dele
gation, who had not as yet arrived. The
Indiana men told the New York leader
that they were In precisely the- fame situ
ation as himself, and that they merely
made the proposition as a preliminary to
Contest Over Chairmanship.
KANSAS CITY, July L Some Interest
had developed In the chairmanship of the
National committee, and It Is no longer
concealed that there Is a contest over It.
The friends of Senator Jones, of Arkan
sas, are Interesting themselves quite
actively to checkmate the movement
against Hill. In this, as In all other mat
ters, an appeal has been mado to Mr.
Bryan, and those who have talked with
him say that ho wishes Senator Jone3
to again be chairman. He thinks that If
the Senator should not be selected It
would appear before the country as an
evidence of want of confidence In the
present chairman. Mr. Bryan has told
his callers that as the Republicans have
elected the same chairman. It would be
better for the Democrats to show the
same confidence tn their manner. Those
who want to displace Senator Jones think
that the committee should be so organ
ized that a man like Senator Gorman
would be chosen as chairman of the ex
ecutive committee, which would result In
a more vigorous campaign In the East
On the Gold Coaat.
