New York, April 28--The Journal prints the following
under date of Manila today, no hour of filing being given:

of the war. This stalf offlcer with a party Is now enroute to wanna, mw-

where they are wultlng supplies. Yesterday a force of 1000 insurgents at

Philadelphia, April 28.- Upon receiving from Wushlngton the dispatch
from Otis, President McKlnlcy sent the following message:

(Signed) William MoKinlky."
Manila, April 23. fl:2ii p. m. The Filipino advances for peace liuvo been
fruitless. Col. Manuel Arguelczs onrt Lieut. Jos. llornal, who cumo Into Gen
eral Mac Arthur's line, under a Hug of truce, told Otis thut they were ropro
RnnMitlvnsnf Goncrul Lunu. who had been requested by Agulnaldo to ask
Otis for a cessation of hostilities In order to allow time for summoning tho
Filipino congrcss.whlch body would decide wnciner me peopio wanieti puuuu
or not. Otis replied that he did not recognize the existence of a Filipino
government. There will be another conference tomorrow.
Manila, April 23. Yesterday tho Washington reglment.wnicn is Homing
m,.,,i tuiti, Mirnnrniiiniinlnricif tho Twelfth rcuulars.cnuaged n largo force
of Insurgents In the Jungle. The Americans lost two klllcd'Und had ten wound

estimated that 2,000 ure there now. They have mounted two guns und

The Filipino olllcers walked down tho railroad track to tho Kansas regi
ments outpost this morning. The Kansas captain escorted them to Wlicaton's
headquarters, where they were provided with horses Und sent to the head
quarters of General MacArthur. Tho Filipinos were then escorted to Manila
reaching this placo at3 p. in. Lieut. Sladen, who was awaiting their arrlyul
with a carriage, In which they were driven to tho naluce and escorted di
rectly to the olllco of General Otis. Jacob B. Sohurmun, and Charles Dcnby,
members of tho Philippine commission joined tho party. At 5 o'clock tho
Filipino officers left the palace. They did not look elated as a result of their
tulk with Otis and members of tho conimlsslon.
San Fhancisco, April 28. The transports Senator and Ohio sailed today
for the Philippines.
Ni:v Yonic, April 23. A dispatch to tho Evonlng World from Manila
contradicts the report that Gen. Luna lins surrendered. Tho dispatch t.uys:
'Filipinos have not surrendered. No cessation of hostilities.
Tho news of speedy conclusion of
hostilities In tho Philippines will bo
welcomed by the American peopio at
home with tho greatest manifesta
tions of Joy. The rcpjrt Is contra
dicted, but even If the lighting should
last thirty or sixty days or six months
Or a year, tho llnal victory and estab
lishment of peace and order In the
Philippines under the sovereignty of
tho American Hag will be u world
All Americans at home pray for an
early cession of lighting. At pres
ent outlook the war cannot last much
luuger. 1U termination will closo tho
Spanibh war. The conditions of
progress and Industrial development
that are prevailing in Cuba, Porto
Rice, Guam and Hawaii will prevail
In Luzon within a year.
Especially should Oregon feel proud
o! tho achievements of tho Second
regiment. No veterans of Wellington,
Nuiviloon or Grant have displayed

Some of the objections made to tho
auctioneers' llconso ordinance by
Goode's counsel Thursday afternoon
wpre substantially these:
Tho bylaws adopted by the city
council, provide that when a bill for
au ordinance be amended and tho
recorder Instructed to engross such
amondment on tho bill, ho shall do so
and report the bill back at the next
regular meeting. Records show thai
In tho case of this bill, tho recorder
was Instructed toengross an amend
ment upon tho hill forthwith"; that
the recorder did so; and that, tho bll)
was pushed at tho same meettug. The
bylaws were binding, and ull of their
requirements must bo complied with.
This hud not been done.
The recorder had no discretion at to
the validity of a license, so a man
damus would not be compelling his
This license was lllegul because it
would compel the plaintiff to puy ai
the rate or $200 per year for tho same
prlvllcgo for which Frludmun and
One u buu in wcro paying at the rato
of 850 per year, being therefore un
just and unreasonable.
The objector tho spcclul meeting of
the council had not been properly
Htatcd. It was stated that tho objnut
was to consider tho auctioneers li
cense ordinance; but tho object really
was to repeal tho old ordinance and
paBS u now one, und should haye been
so stated. Therefore tho passage of
the ordinance at that meting was Il
legal. It may bo noicd thut counsel for tho
city claim that the bylaws adopted
by tho council for Its own guldunco
do not havo tho forco of luw or ordi
nance, und thuylnlullon thereof would
not luvnllduto tho action taken.
