Report That McKinley Favored Relinquishing
the Islands Causes Consternation.
HONG KONG, July 21 General Aguinaldo is known
to be in favor of the annexation of the Philippines by the

his positive denial of the report. Wildman also assured the
insurgents they could trust to America for a spirit of justice.
Cortes, Bosa and other wealthy families then resumed the

The date of the departure of Watson's

Madrid, July 20. Martinez Campos,
former captain-general of Cuba, has
issued an address to the people of Spain
tonight, saying that the present cabinet

Speaking of Santiago, Campos said :
"Surrender was inevitable, sooner or
later. It is impossible to resist in such
a climate with ill-ted soldiers. The
Americans also suffered from the climate
but had more resources, being near their
country and could get everything they
wanted. Haying powerful artillery
they would have been irreeistable in the
end, chiefly considering that we had lost
our squadron. Santiago could do noth
ing else but surrender. Havana will
have to do the same thing, whether it
resists one month or six weeks. I am
pereuaded, however, that the purpose of
the Americans is now to get hold of Por
to Rico and to try to make good their
claims on it. -
'The Americans have etrenath and
consequently will have all. - It is im
possible to. live on the glorious memo
ries preserved in old historical parch
ments. I believe the government acted
too rashly in refusing to accept tho
American nltinaatum. I would have
waited to receive the ultimatum. Apart
from that, I am persuaded that the
Americans wanted nothing but war.
They continued to help the insurrec
tion after Spain had granted autonomy,
but punishment has arrived for the
Cubans and for the Yankees.
"The Cubans will fight the Yankees
in the end the same they fought Spain,
cruelly and relentlessly. .. They will lose
in the end but the cost tothe Americans
will be terrible."
