Senate Committee on. PlhMpplnes today
concerning-- the. early .operations at
Manila when he was In command of
the Amerjcan Naval forces in the Phil
ippine waters. . .
The Admiral's statemena contributed
an Important ' addltlonJo " the history ,
of the surrender of the city of Manila.
This ..consisted, of the positive state
ment by the Admiral, ,to the -effect that
the city "had been surrendered to him
at the time the Spanish fleet was sunk,
and that when the city did surrenJur
it was 4a pursuance of a definite un
derstanding between himself and the
Spanish Governor-General. . ; ' j
"When Senator Ixnlge aaked the Ad
miral: "Dfai you recogriixe the Flllpn.
Ttepubllc" he replied:' X1 dui nn 1
never gave it the sllghtestj recognition.
I had no authority to do so. and besides .
I did hot consider It an brg.iMjied Gov
ernment. ; I sent word to AgurnaMo
that he must treat his prisoners klnslly.
and he replied that he truld."
"Whis would have' been, the effect of
permitting the FUrplno torccs to enter
Manila, when our troops" eritrsrdr
f The Spaniards. were very-fearful of
the resuK of such a course, and there
fore surrendered to me In ' advance.
That; was all arrangetl and .there wa
no need of the loss of a man in th
capture of the city. It was to be dona
at a signal, and no gun need have been
fired by us but for the desire of; tho
Governor General, who. sold his honur
demanded that a few shots be fired."
