Have Been Floated and Docked at
Manila, Nov. 19. Reports have
reached here to the effect that Iloilo,
capital of the island of Paney, has fallen
into the hands of the Filipino insur
gents. The cruiser Charleston and the
gunboat Concord were sent to Iloilo to
investigate as to the truth of the report,
which later was confirmed.

SHE CAN SETTLE
THAT POINT NOW
Unless She Acquiesces in the American
Demands, the War Will Be Re
sumed at Once.
Pakis, Nov. 19. There was no joint
meeting of the peace commission today.
In their next memorandum the Amer
ican commissioners will go to the vital
points. Definite notice will be given
that the Americans will take all the
Philippines, and Spain will unquestion
ably learn the terms, from which there
will be no deviation.
It is "more than likely that the Ameri
cans will flatly summon Spain to effect
an immediate amicable adjustment.
Should Spain refuse to make a treaty
ceding the Philippines to the United
States, the Instant alternative for the
Americans will be the conquest of that
territory at an increased cost to
Spain in the final settlement and possi
bly with the loss of Spanish life.
It may be held that the Philippines,
if ceded, now, without any terms, would
be an adequate war indemnity to the
United States for its war expenses al
ready incurred, and 'that Spain cannot
expect, as a legal or moral right, any
Lmonetary concessions. Philippine ac
quisition by conquest, however, would
entail upon the United States a waste of
treasure far greater than a sum that
Spain may accept now as a basis of peace
for the cession. Spain being barren of
territery or cash with which to indem
nify the UintedStates fully, even at this
juncture, she would be still less able to
meet an additional expense to the Amer
icans in further operations in the Phil
ippines. Moreover, a satisfactory adjustment of
local Philippine conditions is demanded.
Spain could not in any circumstances ef
fect this. The Americans have assumed
responsibility ,and they fell that the de
lay here prevents them from fullfilling
TO HIS DEATH
Albany Man Mysteriously Disappears
in Kansas City Believed to Have
Kansas City, Mo., Nov. 19. E. C.
Read, traveling salesman for the Swof
ford Bros. Dry Goods Company, visited
Chief of Police Hayes this afternoon to
learn if the police had found any trace
of his father, who disappeared from the
Tremont hotel in this city, July 8th.
W. C. Read was a wealthy farmer from
Albany, Or., who went to Parsons.Kas.,
to visit his son. On July 8th he regis
tered at the Tremont hotel, and at 6
in the evening spoke pleasantly to the
day clerk who was just going off duty,
and walked out. No one has seen him
since and although theories of murder
and suicide have been advanced, not a
mite of evidence has been obtained to
E. C. Read, the son, has searched all
through Missouri and Kansas for his
father, but to no avail. The New York
Life Insurance company, in which Read
was insured for three thousand dollars,
has bad its' azents at work without suc

The only theory advanced by the po
lice is that Read met with foul play.
Rain itf California.
San Francisco, Nov. 19. All parts of
California have received . a . thorough
soaking within the past twenty-four
boors, if reports are reliable. The Sac
ramento and San Joaquin valleyB, the
great wheat-producing centers of the
state, have received a drenching, and
farmers now express the opinion that
the crops have been saved. In mining
centere the water ha9 been so low that
some mines have had to close down, but
they will resume operations next week,
now that rain, has fallen. In Southern
California rain is greatly needed, bnt
the indications are favorable for a down
pour, and all danger of a continuance
of the drought is practically over.
