self at the head of a neutral party In Span
ish politics , denounces the "evils existing
In the present political system , " and de

These buildings wlir bo finished In two o
three days , and the worst cases will b

qulrles , said that ) In his Judgment t
United States should retain permanent
the possession of all , or practically all ,
the Philippine Isrands. To surrender the

the Unlfcd States Is to make an effort
secure any considerable portions of the ma
kets of the far east , 'the Philippines woi
be of very great advantage to us.

thing to Justify the belief there was to be
partition of China among the powers. IU
sla had already secured territorial concc

trade and trade facilities were the only c

WASHINGTON. Sept. 12. The Navy dc

as a fair and satisfactory settlement of'th

that for the fast ehlpn desired the Ncnpnr
News company was the lowest. Cramps ncx
and the Union Iron works just above al
within the limit of the cost affixed by th
act of congress. It was the original plan t
award the contracts tn that order. Bu
upon examination of the plans submitted b
the bidders It uas found that the only thor
oughly satisfactory ono was that submlttc
by Cramp , who had simply taken the niter
natn plans suggested bj the Navy depart
inent , which amounted to lengthening th
hull of the ships from fifteen to twenty fee
In order to gain room for the more powrrfi
engines required to drive the ship at
