A Filipino who hns nrrlved at Ma

nary session of the revolutionary con
gress took place at Tarlao August 21.
Aguinaldo presided and chose Mnblni
as president of the supreme court nnd
Gonzaga as attorney general. They
both represent tho most conservative
and temperate clement.
Mabini, who recently resigned the
foreign secretaryship, is the ablest
man connected with the revolution.
Gonznga was the president of the las
pcaco commission. The proceedings
of the congress disproved the report
that Aguinaldo had declared himself
A decree has been Issued by the Fili
pinos compelling thu registration of
all foreigners in Filipino territory.
Tho Chinese, who arc a largo faction
of tho population, nre considered for
eigners, including those born in the
Philippine islands. Applications must
bo made on stamped paper, which
figures largely in all tho business
transactions of the insurrectionary
government. Tills seems to be largely
a scheme to tax Chinamen.
The cabinet meeting at Washington
was devoted almost entirely to the dis
cussion of the local governments which
will be established in tho Philippines
on the cessation of hostilities.
Secretary Root has given the matter
much thought nnd his views ns ex
pressed nt the meeting were Lrccclvcd
with npprovnl by nil of the members

A member of the cabinet, in speak

Root displayed a broad statesmanship,

nomic conditions of the islunds.
A cable has been received from Gen

EVERYTHING READY FOR WAR

All the advices confirm the presence of

bcllicosc, and it is rumored that they
are completing arrangements to poison
all pools and springs that might sup

Unrest is reported among tho Natal

BUT LITTLE HOPE
I'lea hy Laborl L'nllkely nnd III Attitude
That Captain Dreyfus will be con
dctnned Is tho almost only opinion
heard In Rcnncs. Hitherto there had
nlways been n divergence, but now
both camps, the Drcyfusards and the
nnti-Dreyfusnrds, seem unanimous in
the opinion that the verdict will go
against the accused.
Upon just what this is based and
the precise reason for the conclusion
arc a mystery, but thcro Is no disput
ing the fact Hint from M. Labor! down
to tho numerous Drcyfusards who
crowd the hotels nnd cafes, nnd who
last night were still hopeful that
Dreyfus would be saved, all teem now
to agree that his lust chance is gone.
The one source of hope is M. Laborl
himself, who has stated to the corres
pondents that "we fear that Captain
Dreyfus will be condemned, but we do
not intend to throw up the sponge.
We shall go on fighting for him."
M. .Inures, the socialist leader, and
other prominent Drcyfusards expressed
u similar opinion. Excitement is at
fever heat, and nothing is discussed
but the verdict.
The military precautious arc of the
most elaborate character, and no at

Dreyfus listened to the oration of M.
Deinungo with a mask of impassibility
resembling his frozen attitude .during
the first days of tho trial. Whatever
the prisoner's feelings were as he heard
M. Dcmange's plea in his behalf, ho
carefully concealed them.
At 11 o'clock M. Dcmange was still
speaking und he announced that ho
would need another two hours und a
half to finish his plea, so that the court

There was n rumor nftcr adjourn
