PAIU8 , Nov. 4. A statement is prlntcil
hero today , with much prominence , that nt
today's Joint session of the 1'caco com
mission the Americans will Insist upon a
complete Hurrcnder of Spain's sovereignty
over the Philippine Islands and that , In tba
event of the Spanish commissioners refusing
to agree to this , Judge Day , president of the
American commission , acting under Instruc
tions from Washington , will present an
ultimatum to the Spaniards. It la further
alleged that this seeming haste Is due to a
deslro to settle the negotiations before the
elections In the United States take place.
Reference Is matin to these allegations In
view of the fact that they may have also
been circulated In the United States. Hut
thcro Is no truth In the statements made.
N'o ultimatum IB contemplated and there Is
no probability of drastic measures being
taken by the Americans. Two commls-
blona are now considering an open ques
tion , and the Americans expect to patiently
weigh all the points Involved and to care
fully consider the arguments of the
Spaniards. The two commissions met at 2
o'clock this afternoon. The Americans wcr *
aware , before the session opened , that the
Spaniards would dccllua their proposal
made on Monday last.
The Gaulols today says :
It has been Mated on absolutely reliable
authority that Spain will refuse to discuss
the unconditional surrender of the I'hlllp-
plnu Islands , Spain , It Is further asserted ,
had made particular reservations concern
ing the retention of the Phlllppluu Island af
fairs , Duke Almodovar do Hlo had himself , at
the time nf the signing of the peace protocol ,
Htlpulatcd that the Island of Luzon , alone ,
should remain occupied by the American
troops while the peace negotiations were In
progress , nnd that Spain would resume sov
ereignty over the archipelago as BOOH as n
more liberal form of government for the
Islands should have been decided upon.
The Fronde says : "Tlie claims , of the
United States on the Philippine Islands uro
looked upon with disfavor at St. Petersburg.
The powers might , In case of America prov
ing too obstlnato on this point , be provoked
to protest. "
The Kvenment says : "Your money or
your life , Is the attitude taken by America
In relation to Spain. The latter having no
money ofcrs Porto Rico and the abandon
ment of Cuba and thinks it has thus dis
charged Its ransom.
The "Pardon Mo" answers : "Jonathan , you
yet have the Philippine Islands , which arc
only an encumbrance to you. I will relieve
lievo you of them. Why ? Docauso with
Fontaine , I have tbo strongest reasons for
w > doing. "
The joint session of the Pcaco commis
sions today lasted two hours. The Spaniards
refused the propositions made by the Amer
icans on Monday last , but the negotiations
were not broken off. While it Is believed
that no formal counter proposition was made ,
thcro was a discussion of the Philippine
question outside the lines of the American
propositions , The commissions then ad
journed until Tuesday next.
WASHINGTON , Nov. 4. Up to 1 o'clock ,
when the cabinet meeting adjourned , noth
ing had been received from the Peace commission -
* mission at Paris. If a message Is received
during the afternoon or evening another
mooting of the cabinet may bo called.

SANTIAGO DE CUBA , Nov. 4. Th
Cubans who have been employed in cleanln
and repairing the streets of Santiago hav
struck for higher wages , though they hav
been receiving U a day , or CO cents and tw
rations higher wages than have ever befor
been paid for similar work. In fact , loca
employers of labor have been complaining
of this high rate , alleging that It was quite
Impossible for them to compete with the
government on such terms. The Cuban la
borers at the best are lazy and slipshod.
They want an Increase of CO cents a day.
General Leonard Wood absolutely refuses to
accede to the demand and will adopt heroic
measures if the strike is not promptly de
clared off. The trouble is that many of the
trikcrs have rations enough on hand to last
a. mouth or more , and they think they can
cocrco the United States authorities. Gen
eral Wood says he will arrest every laborer
able to work and under a vagrancy law ,
which he will establish , compel them to
work for thirty days for rations while con
fined in jail. Ho dislikes the idea ot Im
porting , but thinks this must bo the ultimate
General Wood visited the yellow fever hos
pital to make an inspection. He found one
patient suffering from Drlght's disease , but
there had not been a case of yellow fever

censured Dr. Duckor , superintendent of the
hospital , for making an appeal for American

. Collector Donaldson has returned from

That Investigation of pass abuses that
consistently refrained from discovering any
thing might have worked to some purpose
If a. little more careful attention bad been
paid to the long list of passes that were
Issued nt the .request of Superintendent ] t i
HartU of the Exhibits department. That the
pass system was bclns manipulated for the
advantage of persons who had no shadow of
right to frco ndmlaslon was apparent to
everyone who was familiar with the cxposl- ,
tlon. It was notorious that hundreds of people - '
plo were coming through the gates every
day on passes to which they were not en
titled , but which they had received as per
sonal favors from officials. A largo proportion
tion of these came through the Department
of Exhibits and It was notorious that an
exhibitor who was < ! n favor with the super
intendent had no difficulty in securing passes
for hU friends. Hundreds of people were
worked Into the grounds all summer In the
character of attendants and employes In
exhibits when as a matter of fact they never
even saw the exhibit In which they were
alleged to bo employed. The result was a
material loss to the exposition , while the
favored exhibitors Indicated their apprecia
tion by raising an extravagant purse for the
man who had connived In the conspiracy.
Some of the pretexts upon which passes
were ordered by Hardt were so flimsy that
the fraud was unmistakable. In some
cases Hardt gave the order with full
knowledge that the recipient was not en
titled to It. For Instance , one of the ex
hibitors In the Liberal Arts wanted a desk
< to use during the summer. He called on the
proprietor of a local furniture establish
ment and asked him what ho would charge
for It. The furniture man suggested that
he would give him the use of a dcik dur
ing the exposition If ho would get him a
season pass under the pretense that ho
was connected with his exhibit. The ex
hibitor told Hardt the whole story and I
asked him what ho could do about it.
Hardt replied that that would bo all right
and gave him an order for a pass for the
furnlturo dealer , although bo knew that he
had no connection with the exhibit and was
also well able to pay his way Into th
grounds. The result was that one man
who would otherwise have contributed a
number of dollars admission during th
summer had free entrance to the grounds
and the exhibitor had bis space furnished
practically at the expense of 'he exposition
The s.iuio exhibitor says that he knows o
a dozen others in the same building ivhi
were favored In a similar manner , but such
Irregularities were kindly overlooked by
the pass Inspector who was employed t <
Aided au Agency.
The superintendent of exhibits is appar
ently a. firm believer In reciprocity , and hi
experience devised numerous schemes b ;
which the principle was applied to th
mutual advantage of himself and ccrtali
exhibitors. Since Hardt has succeeded In
fixing up the report of the committee on
awards to meet his own views the exhibitor ;
are beginning to discover that those wh
patronized a certain Exhibitors' agency , In
which Hardt has been suspected of haying ;
an Interest , have fared rather" better' than
their neighbors. This agency was organizes
at the beginning of the exposition at th
personal suggestion of Hardt and O. C
Holmes was the ostensible manager. Thi
plan was to secure contracts from exhibitors
to take full charge of their exhibits durln g
the summer for a stated compensation. The
agency took the goods from the cars , un
packed and Installed them , kept the exhibit
In good order during the exposition and
then shipped the goods back to the exhibitor.
Hardt was tin enthusiastic capper for this
concern and largely through his Influence it
did quite a flourishing business. Now It Is '
aliened that medals have been distributed
among the exhibitors who patronized the
agency with a lavish Impartiality that left
nothing to be desired. Just how far this
Imposition on the remaining exhibitors was
carried cannot be discovered. The full list
of exhibits that were handled by the agency
la In the hands of Mr. Holmes , who declines
to give any information on the subject. Ho
says that this Is his private business and
that he does not propose to provide ammuni
tion that might bo used against himself.
Gave the Awnrcln Hack.
The two criminal cases brought In Justice
Cockrell'a court , charging H. B. Hardt , su
perintendent of the Department of Exhibits ,
wHh forgery , have been dls-
missed. Upon the close of the
exhibition H. S. Cochranc , representing
Scofleld , Shurmcr & Teagle , and II. A.
Searles , representing the Monarch Manu
facturing company , filed Informations In the
Justice court , alleging that Hardt had beer
guilty of forgery In this , * hat after the
judges had filed their report It was changed
by Hardt and awards were made that were
not recommended by the said juJges.
Yesterday the Bureau of Awards of the
Department of Exhibits of the exposition
changed the awards buck until they were IU
originally made , giving Cochrano three gold
medals Instead of one gold and one silver
medal and S carles ono gold , Instead of one
stiver medal , as recommended by Hardt.

The Baby Incubator people , who did busi
ness on the East Midway during the exposi
tion , have again secured possession of their
Incubators and have turned the babies over
to the people to whom they belonged. All
during the exposition these people showed
babies In glass cases for the purpose of
proving to the public that there was a way
other than the old way to ralso babies. The
show attracted thousands of people and
proved to bo ono of the features of the Mid
way. After It was all over the employes
discovered that they had been spending a
portion of their time working for fun , as the
proprietor was not Inclined to settle and
pay their salaries , whereupon the aforesaid
employes attached the Incubators and the
babies that were In them. The suit was
brought In justice court and was to tavo
come on for trial today , but when every
thing was ready the aforesaid proprietors
died the required bond and again came Into
possession of the plant , which Is still In posi
tion on the East Midway.
The men who worked for the Baby Incu
bator concern now feel secure , and are ol the
opinion that they will get their pay , as the
bond that has been filed Is regarded as am
ple security for all of the debts.

WASHINGTON , Nov. 4. Tlocont edicts of
the dowager empress of China , copies of
which have been received by the Chinese
minister here , show with what a strong
hand the empress Is directing the affairs of
the government nnd overcoming some of the .
ultra reform tendencies of the young cmI I
pcror which cropped out just before the
empress assumed the reins of office. One
of the recent edicts restores the ancient
departments of 1'ckln and the governorship
of the outlying country which had been
abolished not many weeks ngo by an edict
of the emperor. These places had been pre
sided over by some of the most prominent
men of China who had grown gray In the
country's service. They were handed down
from father to son , and great dignity as
well as considerable profit attached to the
offices. There was little work for them ,
however , and following the reform tenden
cies of the western world against sinecures ,
the emperor by edict abolished all the
offices , bureaus ftnd governorships which ho
regarded aa supernumerary. While this
made a considerable saving In the Chinese
finances , It stripped many of the venerable
offices of China of all their dignity and
emoluments. This came so suddenly that
much sympathy was aroused for the officials
who had been enjoying life tenures up to
that time. The dowager now restores the
old regime , and In n recent edict the depart
ments throughout the country are placed
on the same basis they had been before the
Another edict from the dowager empress
directs that the temples bo used exclusively
for religious rites , and not as schools , The
emperor had previously Inaugurated a
marked reform In directing that many elf the
old temples throughout the empire ho turned
Into school houses , In order that education
might be fostered. But the empress
dowager , while upholding the desirability
of education , does not want the ancient
temples of China turned Into school houses
If It Is possible to secure schools elsewhere.
She therefore directs that the temples bo
used exclusively for worship , except when no
school facilities are available elsewhere , or
when the temples have been turned to im
In each case the action of the empress
dowager Is a return to the anrlent methods
of the country , and Js accepted with favor
by the conservative element as well as by
these who desire reforms , so long as they
can bo brought about without doing violence
lence to the ( traditions of centuries.
