London, Oct. 18. The distressing

of tho wreck of tho steamer Mohcgan
off the Ll'wird first became known to
thoBe who had friends' or relatives on
board, wcro renewed this morning,
rhcre were many weeping women
present, several with infants in their
arms. The women appealed for news
at the missing. Most of them were
wives of the members of the crew.
Somo of them left, still hoping that
their hutbands had been rescued; tho
majority gave way to despair.
According to the latest reports 10S
persons perished In tho wreck.
This statement was Issued by the
company last night:
"Of tho fifty-four passengers, eleven
bavo been saved, ten bodies have been
recovered, and thlrty-nlno are missing.
"Of tho crew and cattlemen, thirty

other bodies have hi n picked up, in
cluding two that have beon identified
as thoso of passengers.

port quarter was not sufficient to pre

been suggested that her compass was
faulty, but daylight lasted lonsr after
Eddystono light was passed.
Tho sailors say tho fact that the
Lizard light was not vlsiblo should
bavo scrvec to give the alarm.
Tho masts of the Mohegan, which
aro abovo water, show that her stern

navigating officer, on discovering that
he was in tho bay, suddenly turned
seaward. Two engineers who were
saved declare, however, that thoy never

Paws. Oct. 18. Phllippl Agonclllo,
who arrived in Paris yesterday as the
representative of Agulnaldo, tho in
surgent leader of tho Philippine
Islands, was interviewed to-day.
Agoncillo's apartment at the ITotel
Continental aro on the same floor as
tho rooms occupied by the United
States peace commissioners. He Is de
sirous of seeing the commissioners and
placing Agulnaldo's views of the fu
ture of the Philippines before them.
"Would tho Filipinos accept annex
ation or a protectorate of tho United
States?" Agonclllo was asked.
"Wo want independence, but tho
Filipinos havo a recognized govern
ment of which Agulnaldo is president
and it will dctermlno our attitude to
wards a protectorate or annexation."
"Should the United States take all
or part of the Phlllpplno islands,
would the Filipinos fight the United
States as they have fought Spain?"
"I cannot answer without possible
error; but I think it would bo mont
anwlse for tho United States to divide
the Phlllpplno Islands. They should
Take all or none."
"If the United States give up the Phil
ippine Islands, will tho Filipinos con
tinue to fight tho Spanish?"
"I think so.'
"Is It true that the Philippines do
not object to tho continuance of tho
"And what of tho orders, religious
would tho Philippines accept any
peace with tho United States and
Spain which did not provide for the ex

"The presence and acts of the orders

sible for the Filipinos to become recon
ciled with Spain. Wo have vainly and

learn tho determination of the visitors
concerning the Philippines and to com
municate it to Agulnaldo. Agonclllo,
thus far, has not communicated with
our commission. Tho Spanish com
mission whllo unwilling, naturally, to
summon Agonclllo, is oxeccdingly anx

any, he will make to the Americans.

HOW HAVANA WAS DEFENDED.
rorty-Tfcree Modern Ga.ni Were Mout4
IUiiii of Rifle.
Washington, Oct. 18. The war de
partment, has received a detailed de
scription of the fortifications of Ha
vana. Beside old guns, there aro forty-three
new guns. These guns aro
principally of tho Hontorla and Ord
annex patterns, but there are a few
Erupps among them.
The strength of the Spanish garri
son in Havana is estimated at 100,000,
about evenly divided between volun
teers and regulars. This strength
could have been Increased at any time
by calling provincial troops to Havana.
Theexaot number of arms in Ha
vana is not known, bnt the crmament
on hand in depots, artillery parks and
stores of all divisions of tho army of
the island of Cuba is: Mauser rifles
and carbines, 181,013; Remington
rifles, 137,07; arms of private guer
rillas, 14,000; total 262,089. Out of this
number, only 30,000 aro believed to bo
new. Of cartridge there are 9,000,000.
Great ingeaulty was displayed in the
construction of sunken masked bat
teries. Closely underlying much of
the soil in 'tho 'vicinity of Havana is
coral rock, easily excavated. Trenches
are cut into it, and from short dis
tances nothing Is seen to indicate the
existence or extent of defensive works.
GOOD FOR THE SHIP BUILDERS
Seventeen. Large Yaisela nought by the
Navy Mail 11a Replaced.
Washington, Oct. 18. It Is expected
that the decision of the secretary of
the navy to retain all the vessels pur
chased during the war will havo tho
effect of causing a boom in American
shipbuilding. I comes just at a time
whon there is an unusual demand for
ships flying tho American flag on ac-
count of tba expanding commerce of
the United States in general and par
ticularly on account of the decision of
the administration to confine trado be
tween American ports and Porto Rico
to American vessels.
Tho navy, In preparing for war,
drew very largely upon the tonnage of
tho coast-wiso and foreign lines sail
ing under the American flag and tho
business of these llntJr cannot be re
stored to its" former proportions until
vessels havo bean built ,to supply the
places 'of i taose'' taken by the govern
ment. This will require the construc
tion of seventeen vessels.
