General Miles' letter reads: "It is idle tn assume that campaign fnz in tne Philippines has conditions that warrant resort to medieval cruelty and a departure from an hon orable methed of conducting warfare, and that such depredations should be overlooked and condoned. "It is most ratifying that the seri ous offenses have nor been committed by the soldiers unless under the direct orders of certain officers who were re sponsible. Soldiers have withheld lire when ordered to shoot prisoners, protested against acts of cruelty and written to relatives at home urging them to tafce acuon to put a stop to these crimes. It will ever be one of the glories of the army that such deeds, committed by whatever author ity, are abhorrent to the American sol dier. "The officers who are responsible do not by any means constitute the Amer ican army and there must be an un mistakable line drawn between the great body of soldiers, whose records have been commendable, and those of whatever station, whose acts have re ceived and should receive the stern est condemnation of -all honorable men..

Gen eral 3riceno refused this petition, say ing an exemplary punishment was nec essary. The shooting of Lorenzo has created a profound impression here, as it is the first execution for a polit ical crime in Panama. Lorenzo died bravely. Before he was shot he said he had only been an accomplice and not the principal m the crimes of which he was accused. General Miles Not Invited. WASHINGTON. D.

ERY BAD PLIGHT. A CwwXtten in Which CslomMa Fines) WASHINGTON. A gloomy; picture of the terrible pMght in which Colom bia finds itself as the result of the ex hausting four years of rebellion is con tained in a communication which has reached thin city from a source of un reached this city from a source of un questioned reliability. These advices state that on March 1 last the government gave notice that it had stopped the issue of paper money that was flooding the country and had turned to lithogimph plates, from which at was made over to a com mittee composed of prominent mem bers of different political parties. Sub sequently the government early in April was almost, entirely without funds. It had not enoogh to pay run ning expenses, to say nothing or for eign claims and demands. Not a cent of interest has been paid on the na tional debt since the war began. The claims growing out of the revo lution were assuming tremendous proportions and as there was no other means of relief it was apparent that the government again must have re course to the lfthograoli stones and start the presses running again. More over it was the general opinion that even the small measure of relief which might follow the receipt of the $10. 000,000 from the United States for the Panama canal could not be obtain ed, as it was not expected that con gress would ratify the treaty. At one time the exchange on New York last year was S22.000, that is to say. J22.000 Colombian dollars were required to purchase $1 worth of goods In the United States, it is expected the rate will "be higher this summer, for there is over $1,000,000,000 of this paper money; afloat and it is expected $500,000 wilL be soon issued to pay the war expenses. The foreign debt in 1896 amounned to 2.500,000, on which the interest rate was first 2 and then 3 per cent, but this interest has not been paid for several years. It was the general opinion, according to re port, that the Colombian government could not pay its debts and appre hension was expxressed as to what might happen in case the foreign cred itors pushed for a final settlement of their claims. The correspondent said the conditions in Colombia at the beginning of April were comparative to those existing in France in 1796. MANCHURIA IS OPEN TO ALL.

There were 500 Russian soldiers ar ; New Chwang. who were removed about the date fixed for the evacua tion, and the same number returred to New Chwang. It appears that the Russian force which returned to the Lia forts merely used the forts as temporary resting places while jour neying southward to their station on the peninsula.
