Manila, May 3. There was
innfhpr rnnfprpnrp fnrhv hp-
diioiner comerence lucuy ue I
tween General Otis and the
envoys, who came from Gen
eral Luna bearing proposals
for a cessation of hostilities.
Otis adhered to his refusal to recog
nize the so-called government of the
insurgents. The Filipinos now ask for
a truce of three months to enable Agui
naldo to summon congress and consult
the insurgent leaders of the other
islands. The envoys admitted tho con
tention of Otis that Aguinaldo has lit
tle control over affairs outside of Luzon.
The question of release of Spanish
prisoners in the hands of Filipinos was
Afguolozt's said he considered them
in tho samo category with tho Ameri
cans, tho United States being tho suc
cessor of Spain in dominion over tho
island. After a close conference tho
Filipino envoys had n consultation with
tho United States Philippine commis
sioners. Maniia, May 3. Thu Filipino envoys
have abandoned tho pretense under
which they came to Otis, that tlioy rep
resented General Luna, and today an

tained the visiting delegates of the or
der and distinguished guests last night.
The occasion was made notable by tho
presence of Secretary Algor, Senntor
Chauncey M. Dopow, Mnjor-Genorul Jo
seph Wheeler, Major-Genoral Wesley
R. Merritt, Major-Genoral Horatio C.
King, Inspector-General J. 0. Ureckln-
ridge and many others who rendered
distinguished services in tho Spanish
and Civil wars. A" feature which was of
jtecullar interest was a speech of Gen
eral Wesley Merritt, warmly defending
Secretary Alger. lie declared Alger tho
best secretary of war the world has over
Secretary Algor begun his speech with
a reference to tho struggles of the Pil
grim forefathers to secure "equal rightH
and religious freedom to nil," and al
luded to tho nervy deeds of tho patriots,
ancestors of tho men of the society
which furnished tonight's entertain
ment, but he soon turned the attention
of his auditors to the moro recent war
with Spain. Tho secretary spoke at
somo length of the trlnlsof his depart
ment iu equipping tho great army so
horridly, and expressed ills gratification
that ultimately "battles were fought
and victories won without tho loss of a
gun or a color." Continuing he said :
"Supposing they had a little beef
spoiled, what of it? If they had hud no
lcof at all they would have had more
than General Joe Whcor and I had in
the other war. .
"Tho people of tho United States are
un unselfish people. They never sought
territorial nccesslon, except for tho bon
oflt of the people that came with it. Tho
flag of the nation is hoisted over Cuba,
Porto Rice and tho Philippine, iu lands
whoso people havo for centuries been
oppressed by Bpunish misrule. Whatever
else may Jcome, wo can be assured that
where it has beon raised iu Porto Rice
and tho Philipplucs,thuro it will remain.
Ono of these Islonds wo hold In trust ;
tho others are ours. Tho strife that
brought um this country the war with
Spain was not for our own seeking; the
force of events and tho cry of down
trodden humanity culled for our aid. No
human mind could stop it. It was to

shall give such recognition of their ser

that Is the sacrifice they offered ; the
sacrifice they have made.
"We aro today, wo hope, Hearing tho
end of tho conflict and Hearing tho dawn
of peace in tho Philippines, and upon
every lip Is dally, yes, hourly, expressed.
'What of tho future?" God hi his In
ilntto wisdom can only answer that
question and ho has guided us thus far,
mid as his hand has been so plainly
seen In the history of tho past 12
months, wo can feel assured, as ho
rules, what tho future will be."
Major-Gonerul Merritt was tho next
speaker, Said he :
"When wo went to the Philippines
there vwis only one course for us
to pursue, vir.,, the course that has
been taken up the present. Our navy
had captured Manila bay and the army
had captured the city, and we could
not let go; and the prospects arc now
that tho American flag will continue to
wave in the Far Fast.
General Merritt referred to tho secre
tary of war as tho best secretary of war
tho world has ovor seen. Ho added:
"No secretary was over moro abused.
Socretary Stuntoli stood through his
abuse as the most fearless secretary that
ovor lived. Wo havo now another secre
trfry who has made fewer mistakes and
been 'knore abused than any of his pre
