' Afternoon, but a Filipino objected, and
BCCU9ed the Spaniard of attempting to
undermine the constitution. To tins
the Spaniard replied that he was a sin
cere republican, and that his own de
sire was the welfare of the conntiy.
Whereupon, the Filipino apologized,
and the proceedings terminated.
During the afternoon many Ameri
cans and Europeans arrived, and Agul-
j oaldo was kept busy receiving visitors,
including the American consul press correspondent had a pri
vate interview with Aguinaldo, who is
extremely unwilling to compromise
himself with the natives. He said
that a majority of the Filipinos had
been struggling for freedom for years
and centuries, and that they now be
lieve that their object has been at
tained. Aguinaldo professed entire
ignorance of the autonomous system in
vogue in the British colonies, of pro
tectorates and of American, autonomy.
He said be was unable to understand
the idea, and only understood "ab
solute independence." Personally he
believed a protectorate for the Philip
pine islands was unnecessary, but he
feared that the people would be disap
pointed in this. He had not studied
I political economy and knew nothing
about the various formsof government.
He inquired whether Australia was an
American colony, and said he had
never heard of a Malay protectorate.
Continuing, the insurgent leader
said theie was no need of protection
for the Philippine isiynds. because the
Filipinos were able to cope with any
army. He admitted that he had never
soen a foieign army, with the eicep-
i j tion of the garrisons at Hong Kong and
Mngapore, ami nc nau never seen luese
troops on parade.
Aguinaldo declined p discuss the
American army and protested his un
dying gratitude to the Amerioans.
lie said they had ooine to the Philip
pines to right the Spaniards only, and
now that they had finished the tusk, it
wg to be expected that they would re-
turn to America. He was unwilling
to believe that the Americans would
demand a reward for an act of human
ity, and he declined to admit the neces
sity of a quid pro quo.
The Filipino leader expressed him
self confident that the newly founded
government would build a navy ulti
mately. In the meantime he said,
the great nations should protect and
aid any young nation, instead of grab
bing her torritoiies. if the Americans
should refuse to withdraw, the national
assembly, he said, must decide the
policy to be pursued a policy which
he declined to forecast.
Fuither conversation was prevented
by the strains of a brass baud, but

also by a doaen American journalists.

Tale Not Half Told.
Kingston, Jamaica, Sept. 19. The
recent hurricane was undoubtedly the
woist visitation of the kind exper
ienced by the West Indies during tho
century. Two hurrioanes swept along
the island chain from Barbadoes west
ward to St. Vincent, and thence north
west to St. Kitts, where it was last
heard from. ' Barbadoes suffered mostly
from the rain, which destroyed orops
and roads as it did at St. Lucia and
other islands, while tbe center of the
storm swept over St Vincent and
Guadaloupe. Details received from St.
Vincent show that great destruction of ,
life and- property took place there. .
