New York, June 80. According to a
Washington correspondent of the
Journal and Advertiser, two important
decision were made at the meeting of
toe cabinet held Just before the pres
ident itarted for Holjroke, referring to
the campaign in the Philippines.
First, that in view of the strength of
Aguin&ldo in the north aa developed in

Second, that the army and navy must

Admiral Watson to co-operate with

landing of munitions of war on the
Island of Luzon.

A point of importance to the many

eral Otis would appoint only eighty or
ninety of the total 150 officers that
would be needed, the rest of the of

from applications in the United States.
CRITICISE U. S. TROOPS.
British Papers are Bitter About Al
London, June 20. The alleged looting
of English homes in Hollo by the Amer
ican troops, February 11, is made the
abject of a bitter though belated com
plaint in the Outlook, an imperialist
weekly, which says:
"For the sake of the good name of
the republic, it Is hoped that a proper
sequel, the condign punishment of the
leaders, will not be long delayed.
The accusation is based on an anon
ymous private letter for the accuracy
of which the editor vouches. The wrl
ter quotes an eye witness of the alleged
occurrences as saying:

HOW THE EXPLOSION OCCURRED
The firemen were Injured by the ex

which stood on the first floor near the
open elevator. Th powder was con
tained In two large iron tanks and
was separately encased in ten-pound
cans. The firemen were warned by em
ployes who arrived early of the exist
ence of the explosive, and with admir
able coolness went about the task of
retting the dangerous tanks to a place

street and out of harm. The second

ber of men seised the other end. Af

pulled from the platform It tilted and
the iron lid fell back, exposing th
round tin cans piled in tiers within. At
the same time the fourth and fifth
floors were a raging furnace and hun

Washington, D. C, June 21. The In

ment from L. M. Lockwood, an oil pro
ducer at Zellnople, Pa., In opposition to
the Standard Oil trust Mr. Lockwood
declared that this company had driven
the Independent refineries Into bank
ruptcy and servitude, and he denounced
the course pursued In severe terms. He
held the railroads especially responsible
for this condition of affairs. Going
back to 1872 he referred at length to a
contract made by the truhk lines of
Pennsylvania with the South Improve
ment company. Under this contract he
said the freight rates on oil were dou
bled and half the amount collected was
paid back as rebate not only this.
out tne contract company received e
like rebate on the shipments of all oth
er companies. This contract, he declar
ed, had been secretly continued by the
railroads with the Standard Oil com
He quoted A. J. Cassatt.the new pres
Ident of the Pennsylvania railroad, as
testifying before the Interstate Rail
way commission to the effect that while
the open rate to the public was $1.90
per barrel, the rate to the Standard
company was 80 cents. Further invest!
gation, said Mr. Lockwood, had devel
oped the fact that the railroad com
panies actually received only 35 cents
Hiis condition of affairs had resulted
for a time, according to the witness, in
riving the Standard company a profit of
100 per cent, while the Independent com
panies were being driven rapidly into
bankruptcy. Mr. Lockwood was free In
the use of epithets, characterizing both
the oil company and railroad officials
as highwaymen and brigands.
CALLS THEM ROBBERS.
"If you have got to be robbed," he
exclaimed, "it does not matter much
whether you are held up by Dick Tur
pin with a pistol or by John Rockefel
ler with a railroad, which Is robbery
all the same." He said that the men
who had carefully examined the testi
mony taken before the Hepburn com
mittee estimated that in 186 months'
time the five trunk lines of Pennsyl
vanla paid the Standard company $11,-
JOO.OOO In rebates. The railroad com pa
nies had, he said, completely ignored
the order of the Industrial State com
mission to stop their discrimination in
favor of the Standard company, resort
ing instead to the system of false bill
Speaking of the remedy for the evil
Mr. Lockwood said It was In public
ownership of the railroads and not to
be found In the courts the courts were
too slow and expensive. "The railroads
and the oil company can razoo a man
up and down In the courts for ten
years, he said, "until he Is ruined.
and then go on with their work, leav
ing their victim stranded. As a reward
the combines elevate their Instruments
to higher places politically. Thus it
was that the thought of the common
people was gradually becoming fixed
to the effect that the great railway
combines were gradually packing the
sipreme courts with men In sympathy
with their monopolistic tendencies and
who would do their bidding. Thus the
Interstate commerce law was rendered

the witness asked.
The only safe plan, said Mr. Lock-
wood, was to take the railroads out of
the bands of the corporations and place
them under control of the government
bo that every man could go to market
aa cheaply as every other man. He
considered all the railroads of the
country as practically one In the trust,
and asserted that they were In control
of politics, contributing millions to elect
legislators, senators and Judges and to
punish those not willing to do theli
bidding. With absolute equality over
the roads, the independent companies
would drive the Standard company Into
a secondary place in a short time.
There would then, he asserted, be no
more shooting down of striking min
ers, for the miner could send his pro
duct to market as cheaply aa the mine
monopolies. So in all other lines of bus-n-ss.

the taking of the roads under the right

The afternoon session of the com
mission was characterised by the devel
opment of difficulties among members
of the commission as to the kind of
testimony that should be admitted.
Mr. Lockwood made the statement that
