Philippine.1!', tilts expenditures of this
government ton likuly to bu quito -is
hesivy, if not lii'iivlt'f, for hoiiiu tiinu to
come its they wetc while the wur vim
going on. This nmy sou ml n little
queer but it is easily explained. The
expenses of the unity will not ho less
piiihI until wii lic!'in to inimtci- tln
troops out of service, untl tlmt is ti mut
ter not even yet thought of, us wo .sliull
htivo to garrison Cubit it ml Porto Htco,
the former iuit heavily, for nobody
knows how long, ami tlto expenses of
tho navy will bu increased Insto-ul of
lessoned, as orders have boon issued to
overhaul all our heavy lighting ships
ns quickly us tho work eau be dono.
Iu addition to theso expenses the pros
ident has decided that it is our duty to
feed everybody in Cuba that needs
food, including tho Spanish soldiers
until such time ns they can feed thorn
solves, and governmuut rations aro al
ready on tho way. A strict account
will bo kopt of all lood furnished Span
ish soldiers in Cuba, and Spain will bo
made to reimburse us, but tho rations
issued to others in Cuba will simply bo
charged up to war oxponsos, and from
all accounts, It will not bo a small sum
that will have to bo expended for that
purpose All these things combined
will tuako our noaco expenses heavier
than our war expenses for n time.
Tho military commissions to arrango
for tho time and mu'.hod of Spanish
ovncuatlon of Cubauud Porto Rico will
at ouco bo appointed, but it is likoly to
bo months before tho last Spanish troop
loaves Cuba. In I'orto Kico there nro
fewer of them and they will probably
evaouato that island in u few weoks.
For reasons entirely sollMi tho health
of our troops wo will not hurry them
out of Cuba.
for years, nitd It would be nn eniy to
round tip atuqtitil number of Ameticati
hoboes uud mako them udupt u tegiilai
occupation ns it would to mnko orderly
workmen out of tlto itiburgents. Thore
aro many of tho insurgents who will, in
my opinion, bocouio brigands, rather
than to work for a living, juat as a
number of thorn did at tho closo of the
las t Cuban insurrection. If they do
they will mako no ond of troublo for
)ur army of occupation, as themoun
tains of Cuba aro difficult of access, ox
cept to tho natives, and tho natives
who do not Join tho brigands cannot
bo dopondod upon to rondor the slight
est assistauco to any movement against
thorn. It is a groat pity that tho presi
dent's word'provonts tho United States
nnnoxlng Cuba at onco; thoro isn't tho
slightest doubt about its coming to
that in tho ond. Moaawbllo thero will
bo lots of troublo in Cuba, as wo try to
livo up to our promlso, that tho islands
shall havo a stablo government. It is
my opinion that no stablo government
will ever exist in Cuba, except that of
tho U.S. and I fcol cortain that nine
outofovery ton property hclders on
tho island, regardless of their nation
ality, hold tho samo opinion."
Thoro is very iittlo probability that
an extra session of tho senate will havo
to bo called to ratify tho treaty of
peaco that is to bo nogotlatod .with
Spain, for tho vorygoodroason that tho
treaty is not likoly to bo ready before
congress assoinblos for tho regular ses
sion in Docembor. Tho protocol or
temporary peaco agreement of tho two
governments provides that tho joint
commission, charged with tho duty of
negotiating tho treaty, shall moot in
Paris not later than October 1st, next.
Tho woll known disposition of tho
Spanish to postpono, makes it practic
ally certain that tho commissioners
representing Spain will not bo there a
dny earlier than that mentioned ns tho
last upon which they can meet our
commissioners. As the Philippines
will bo the subject of tho most contro
versy, it is nniong tho probabilities that
tho commission may visit tho islands.
If so, that would consume tit least six
weeks tiinu. Diplomats, who know
something of the inside workings of
such commissions, do not expect tho
tteaty to bo completed much, if tiny,
before the llrst of tho year, ami would

It is admitted on all sides that thN
government will havo several diftlcult
probloms to solvo in Cuba, nut the least
of which will bo tho satisfactory dls

In tho discussion of terms of peaco a
good deal of unnecessary consldeiation
was given to tho subject of tho Cuban
debt. There is no Cuban debt. Thero
aro Spanish bonds quoted on tho
bourses as ''Cubans." Tho Spanish
government issued thorn, and to givo
thorn nioro attractiveness to investors
pledged for the payment of tho interest
tho revenues derived from custom col
lections of Cuban port;. In tho proto
col signed Friday there is no reference
whatever to tho Cuban debt. Tho
question of the assumption of any part
of it by this country or by any govern
niant that tho United States may sot up
in Cuba has no place.
Tho president hnt doeided that tho
United States shall hold permanently
tho bay, port and city of Manila. Ho
isptepared to instruct the Ameticau
membeis of the peace commission to
this effect. Further consideration will
develop whether tho United States will
tako more. But It is decided that so
much as the bay, port and oity shall be
retailed. ThU decision is very rocut.
