"It Is a case where the tall has be

has Its Illustration in the fact that
futures began breaking faster than
cash wheat declined. Logically, the
condition should have been just the
rewrse. For several days -- in fact,
I may say for some weeks- cash wheat
has been slow sale, especially in the
Northwest nml around the milling cen

this has been offset by a fair degree of
activity at the seaboard in response to
an Inquiry from the other .side, but the
local markets haw been decidedly In
clined to drag. There has been a steady
marketing of cash wheat, hut I cannot
say anything as to the quantities in
which it has gone Into home consump
tion or abroad for foreign use.
"I see no objection to stating that
all my holdings of futures have been
disposed of. A good deal of gossip has
come to me on the general subject of
alleged treacherous conduct on the
part of Northwestern grain interests,
which I have always heretofore consid
ered friendly to me in a personal and
business way, hut I have nothing
whatever to say on this subject. If in
the history of the deal there have been
events of which the public is entitled
to be informed it is more than likely
the facts will come out in good time,
but not from me. I have no complaints
to make or charges to prefer against
those with whom I have been doing
business. It is a source of considerable
satisfaction to me that my alValrs. for

Mr. P. I). Armour, himself one of the
central ligures in the l.eiterdeal which

did not take n particularly gloomy
view of the situation. He said:

newly appointed brigadier generals to
have regular I'nlted Mates army of
ficers assigned to duty on their staffs
The department is not indisposed to
allow a fair representation of the
regular army on the volunteer stalls
but it is felt to be improper and unjust
to the regular army ollieers to make
up these staffs entirely from among
them. The immediate eoiiseiiiienee of
acceding to these requests lias been to
force the wilnuteer otllceis of lower
grade In positions where they are fre
quently called upon to command men
much older In years and riper in mili
tary experience than themselves. The
result ts dissatisfaction and discon
tent all along the line, for, as a rule
the regular army ollieers very much
prefer duty on the staff of generals of

mation has been brought by the steam
er rhnprcss of Japan from Hong Kong
icgardlng negotiations between the
Philippine, rebel chief and the United

It seems that just before the outbreak

of a secret political arrangement by

tered Into direct relntlons with Ad
miral Dewey while that ofllcer was
btlll at llong ICong.
(Iencral Agulnaldo's policy, as a re
sult of these conferences, embraces the
Independence of the Philippines, whoso
internal niralrs would be controlled
under Kuropean and American advis
ers. American protection would be
desirable temporarily on the same
lines as that which might be instituted
hereafter in Cuba. The ports of the
Philippines would be free to the trade
of the world, safeguards belifg erected
against an influx of Chinese allens.who
would compete with thu industrious
population of the country. There
would be a complete reform of the
present corrupt judiciary of the coun
try under experienced Kuropcan
law ofliecrs. The entire freedom
of the press would be established
as well as of thought and pub
lie meetings. There would be gen
eral religious toleration and steps
would be taken for the expulsion of
tyrannical religious fraternities, who
have such a strong hand on every
branch of the civil administration.
1'ull provision would be given for the
exploitation of the natural resources
and wealth of the country by roads,
railways, and by the removal of all
hindrances to enterprise and the In
wstinent of capital. The Spanish of
ficials would be removed to a place of
safety until an opportunity offered to
their return to Spain. The preserva
tion of public safety and the checking
of reprisals against the Spaniards
would naturally have been the llrst
cure of the government in the new
state of things.

There were two columns in the
