SPAIN WILL MOT ACCEPT

ADJ01RMD IN1II IlLSDAY.
The Spanish Government Uxpetle
to Met Hetter Bargain
I t in h, Nov. 4. Tho joint session ot
tho pence commissioners today lastod
to hours. The Spaniards refused the
proposals made by the American cn
Monday last, but negotiations were not
broken off. While it Is believed no
formal, counter proposition was made,
there was a brief discussion of the Phil
ippine 'location outside the lints ot the
The commissioners then adjourned
until Tuesday nest.
The statement Is printed hero today
with much prominence that the Ameri
cans with insist upon lbs immediate
ami complete surrender ol Spain's
sovereignity over the Philippines, and
in the event of tne Spanish commission
ers refusing to agree to this, Judge Day,
acting under instructions from Washing
ton, will prraent an ultimatum to Ibe
Spaniards. U is further alleged that
tbia wemiog baste 1 due lo a desire to
selile tlm negotiationa before the elec
tions iu the United Ststee take place.
Kefeience is made to these allegations
iu view of the fact that they may also
hav been circulated in tne United
Suii-a, bot there ia no truth iu the state
meuts made. No ultimatum ia contem
plated, aud there is no probability of
drastic measures being taken by Ameri
cana. The two commissions are now
consi fering an open question, and the
Americans expect to patiently weigh tbe
puinls involved aud to carefully consider
tho aigumenta of tb HpaniarJa.
The Americaos were aware before to

ANOTHER MANILA LETTER.
Frank dedfrey Writes to tils Parents
at This Place.
Frank S. Godfrey, quartermaster-ser
geant, with tbe 2nd Oregon at Manila,
write a letter to Lis parents at thla
place, from which we are permitted to
publish the following extracts:
Mamla, P. I. Oct. 4, 1398.
Dear Father and Mother: My health
it very good now. Sam Starmer i the
only Roseburg boy iu the hospital and
he la not seriously sick. The sick in
quarters are, Cbaa. Learberman, J. D.
Dixon and Robt. Wilcox. Sick in quart
ers, mean slight blues, just enough to
exenae tbem from duty, sometime sore
fingers, beat-blisters, boils, blistered feel.
etc. The Roseburg peopl-i have a great
deal to be thankful for in regard to the
health of Co. B. Mrs. Wires' son, O.'
Portland, has been sick in the hospital
30 days. Private Wbeeler ot Co. D. bad
typhoid fever and after being discharged
went down town ; tbe exertion caused a
relapee and death waa the result. Ser
geant Gantenbeln of Co. II. wrote a very
touching letter from Hong Kong in te
gard to tbe death of Private Ordway.
Tbe Emergency Corps baa been doing a
fine work ; tbe $100 given ns bas done a
great amount of good for our s h:k boy a
bo could not eat tbe food we had to
1 ve on. Jim Brown is taking rare ot
sick in quarters and when they nel
anything in tbe way of extras he goes to
Capt. May and gets it from tbe Emer
gency fund. But we are so far away it
is bard to reach us with anything in
tbat line, as it ia eyen impossible ti keep
the commissaries supplied wilh tataUa
for the soldiers to boy when tbey have
muney. Thin ia no place for Autericaai
or L'nited S'kit-s soldiers. God pity
tbem ! It makes a makes a man's htr.
throb with pity to see the poor boys snf-
fering with wounds and aickneaa tar
from home and loved one. I heard
there were over 5,000 invalids brouuht
borne from Cuba at one lime. We are
more fortuuate than ihey, although
Luzon will furnish quite a number.
Father Time is here with his sickle ami
Death with bis white hone, but tbe bos
are just as ready to meet him with sick
ness, as tbey were in tbe field with lead
and shining steel, and are to be bonoie I
just tbe t-ame.
Jndging from the papers, you have re
ports that are greatly exaggerated in re
gard to sickness and most everything
else here. Tnat man that wrote to the
Oregonian and said tbis was the most
beautiful country in the world aud bad
tbe finest climate, and tbat all the boys
intended totake up ranches wrote hia
letter before be landed at Cv,:te and
left on tbe Prst boat tbat contained in
valids tor tbe Unite 1 States. The boys
of Co. H., bis own Co. , were veiy angrv
when they read it aud thought him th
most graceful liar tbey ever saw.
Men in tbe regulars, whose time
expires, accept toeir discbarges, say
'Buneoa tardea" and sail by tbe first
boat for the Vnited States, and that ia
what we will all do the first chance we
get, so don't worry about my re euliat
ing, nnlees war is sure thing and in that
case I might go again, but we do uot
want to do garrison duty in a foreign
country. It is alright in time of war to
fight and starve for the upholding of the
teachings of Christ and tbe cause of
I remember the time when wo boarded
the Australia in S. F. and saw the peo
ple lining the docks, cbeariug us on
while they staid at home, but there were
strong, men there with tears iu their
eyes, women whose forms were shaking
with grief, whose sons came across thu
sea uever to go back, while some will re
turn physical wrecks, there were others
that would gladly have gono if tbey had
had means to leave their loved ones,
others who served their country by
cheers and talk, and there were tbe Red
Cross women, God blesa tbem tor what
they have done aud are doing, who came
out on tbe steameri as far as tbe bar, to
cheer the soldier boys, not only tbe Cal
fornians but the Oregoua and make their
hearts thrill with joy to think we were
wniug to tight for such women as ran be
