Recent events have proved somewhat discouraging to officials who are trying to accompany war with a policy of conciliation. Two new mu nicipal governments have collapsed through the treachery of the mayors. Today the mayor of San Pedro Ma- cati , who was elected by the people under the direction of Prof. Dean Worcester of the United States ad visory commission for the Philippines , was brought to Manila and lodged in jail. The United States ofllcers at San Pedro Macati found that he was using his office as a recruiting station for the Philippine army. Four dis guised insurgent officers were helpIng - Ing him. The mayor of Balinag was also ar rested and confined in the same prison. The Americans caught him passing between the lines of the two armies with incriminating documents , which the authorities secured. Another prominent native mayor is under sur- i'eillance. When the result of the election at [ mus , which General Lawton and Prof. Worcester engineered , was announced , the Americans inquired as to the whereabouts of the people's choice and were informed that he was in prison at Bilibid , where the authorities had placed him on suspicion of being a revolutionist. He was released and in stalled as mayor. STATES TO CONFER ON TRUSTS. TTventy-One Governors Appointed Dele gates to Join In Discussion. NEW YORK , Aug. 28.

" Indescribable Scene Marks Arrival of Pirst California Volunteers. INNUMERABLE CRAFT MEETS SHIP Sea Front Is Crowded AVI h Cltl/cnH Armed With Koine-Producing Instru ments mid lomi'g Guv if Join In the Uproar Recognition of Br.iicry of the lioya. SAN FRANCISCO , Aug. 25. A11 morning long this city has been in a state of feverish excitement due to the arrivial off the Golden Gate of the transport Sherman with the First Cali fornia volunteers and batteries A and D of the California heavy artillery. The start of the welcoming vessels from the Golden Gate will be made promptly at 12 o'clock ; nd the Sher man is scheduled to reacn a point op posite Fort Point at 1 o'clock. As the big transport nears the gate the na tional salute will be nu > d from the forts in the harbor an.1 from the bat tleship Iowa. At a given signal from Commodore Spreckles the yachts and tugs will form in a disi nated order and proceed up the bay. Every pier and Telegraph hill , which commands a magnificent view of the Golden Gate and harbor , were crowded with spectators anxious to catch glimpse of the Sherman as it neared the harbor. From every quarter of the bay , yachts , launches , lugs and bay craft of all descriptions made their way through the water all converging toward one point , the Sherman. The pleasure craft were crowded. As the fleet became greater , by the addition of each new boat , the beats seemed to jostle one another and on more than one occasion it appeare-1 to the watch ers on shore that collisions were im minent. Their human cargoes all gath ered on the shore side of the vesels and the slant of the vessels toward that side caused some ahum , but for tunately there were no accidents of any moment. The bo its took their appointed positions as if by magic. As the Sherman approached the gate the land batteries belched forth in a national salute and the bay steamers took up the signal with their sirens. Nearer and nearer the wel come vessel came and at last pushed its prow into the pace left for it and such a scene occurred as has never been seen on this coast before. Flags dipped and were waved , whistles screamed , cannon were fired , trumpets were blowed and megaphones and ma rine glasses were turned on the de lighted boys who crowded the rigging of the great steamer. The signal was given to the fleet of yachts and tugs to get under headway just in time for them to fall into the wake of the transport , which of course , was given the place of honor. The fleet gathered strength in numbers as it arrived well inside the bay. It was a grand sight and one never to be forgotten. The gallant Californians on the transport seemed wild with delight over the re ception given them. They cheered and cheered , waved flags and handker- ciiiefs and caps and even their coats in the excitement. As the fleet swept the sea wall the din became more and more deafening and the waving of flags more frantic. As the fleet neared the transport dock , the Iowa let go its batteries and the curling smoke , as it left the can on's mouth , presented a sight which few of the watcher on land and'water had ever seen before. Just before the anchor of the Sher man was dropped , Commodore Spreck- els gave the , signal for the escort to disperse and the first detail of the day's celebration was over. The Sherman will lay off the transport dock to-night and to-morrow morning it will move into its position alongside - side the pier and the boys will be j taken ashore for breakfast , after which v they will march to the Presidio , where they will be given a furlough of twen ty-four hours. NO MORE MONEY FOR CUBANS. a Brooke Decides Not to Make Payments on Additional Rolls. HAVANA , Aug. 25. Governor Gen eral Brooke has virtually decided not to make any payments to Cuban troops on the payments of additional rolls. The first payments brought to light such an amount of thievery and attempted swindling that he has ceas ed to consider the question of dis tributing what is left of the $3,000.000 : in supplementary payments. The sum now left in his hands he will t probably use to assist wounded and deserving officers , who , under the original arrangement , were to receive nothing. Most of the Cuban officials agree with a remark recently made by Gen eral Gomez. He said the $3,000,000 would prove more harmful than help ful and the work of payment has re vealed the depths of depravity that the best friends of Cuba had not con ceived could exist. Only a Military E-cprdltlon. WASHINGTON , Aug. . " .

Brown of Lancaster. Superior court judge Josiah R. Adams of Philadelphia. State treasurer Lieutenant Colonel James E. Barnett of Tenth Pennsylva nia regiment. HARRISBURG , Pa. , Aug. 25. The ahove ticket was nominated yesterday by the republican state convention. The only discordant note in the convention was sounded by Senator William Flinn of Pittsburg , chairman of the anti-Quay organization in the last legislature. Mr. Flinn opposed the plank in the platform endorsing the appointment of United States Sen ator Quay by Governor Stone. A roll call was taken on the adoption of the platform as a whole and it was adopt ed by a large majority. The anti- Quay delegates generally voted against the adoption of the platfoi'Ji and the nomination of Mr. Adams. Before the result of the ballot for supreme judge was announced the friends of Judge Archibald of Scranton and ex-Attorney General Palmer of Wilkesbarre mo'-ed to make Mr. Brown's nomination unanimous. For the superior court , Dimner Beeber of Philadelphia was named in opposi tion to Mr. Adams and received the votes of many of the anti-Quay del egates. The nomination of Colonel Barnett was made by acclamation. Aside from the nomination of the ticket and the adoption of the plat form new rules were reported and adopted for the government of the state organization. The star attraction was the pres ence of Senator Quay as a delegates from Beaver county. He entered the convention hall with Chairman Blkin just before the session was called. His friends recognized him and cheer ed and applauded as he took a seat. Quay remained until the question of resolutions came and quietly retired. Senator C. L. Macee of Pittsburg was conspicuous by his absence. He is convalescent from a severe illness , and by the advice of his physician did not attend the convention. FLAG ON LAND AND SEA. Keport of Gen.
