The memorial waa adopted at an extraor
dinary aeaalon of the federal party held In
Vanlla In November. It aeta forth that the
performance of tht obligation of the treaty
at Paris which gave the United 8tatea con
gress authority to fix tha atatutea Of the

The memorial then makes a presentation
af the deduction of the federal party that

The memorial announces aa principles ot
this union the formation ot "a more perfect
union, an establishment of justice, the in
aurance ot domeatic tranquility, promo
. tton of the general welfare and the secur
ing of the bleeslnga of liberty."
The memorial then proceeds: -
Opposed to Independence.
To make of the Phlllpplnea a colony of
the United Statee or to grant Independence
to the Philippine would be to hand the
Inlands over to disorder and to anarchy, to
AaAtninttan and to chaos. In effeot the
colonial system Involve the principle of
difference of cltlsenahlp. In equality of
5 tents and other consequent abuse and In
uatlcea. of all of which we Filipinos were
surfeited under the Spanish government,
and for thl reason we reject everything
which tend toward a colony. Philippine
Independence, with or without a protec
torate, means a holding of power by all the
-h&i inm.nti of the sect which pre
dominate, and would predominate still for
Bom Veara, until ine anger ui iniumui
toward Filipinos ehall have been completely
calmed, education become general and the
x-Um w Hitve inherited from Una in

ttl all theae dimoultlea by concentrating
the Interest of the Filipino, people upon
education and labor.
Th meznorlaliata then pray a declaration

steamer Llbertador confirms the report
that the latter sank the Venetuelan gun

The political situation In Venetuela is

the two nation to Joint action to maintain

aa fully disclosed in the notes published by
it from time, to time.
It is ' again stated that there has been
no Joint action between the- United
States and the two powers named, yet it
la a fact that the preamble to the new
treaty might be regarded as almost a para
phrase of the poaition of the United State
toward the Manchurian question as enun
ciated in Secretary Hay' not to the Rus
sian ambassador here.
It is mad very clear here by .the official
statements that the purpose of th United
States all relate to commercial 'and Indus
trial phases, s Manchurian question.
With the political phase we have little
concern. The sovereignty of Russia or
China over Manchuria "ild be to use an
Immaterial Issue, so long a American ships
are free to Ball Into Manchurian ports on

LONDON, Feb, M. The liberal 'after
noon newspaper view the alliance between
Great Britain and Japan with mixed feel
ings and conservative organs generally ap
plaud it. The St, ' James' Osteite (con
servative)' expresses "modified surprise st
this wide departure front British tradi
tional policy," but finds solace la the
thought that the policy and Interests of
the United State are Identical with those
ot Great Britain and Japan, and concludes:
Perhaps we ahall find, when, th policy! ot
Great Britain Is definitely known, that th

The Westminster Gasette thinks the at.
liance caa be fairly termed offensive and
defensive, say that - it, therefore,, has a
dangerously wide extension and concludes
that it looks like a rather hasty answer
to European hostility.
Baron Hayasbl, the Japaneae minister
here, - who signed the treaty In ' behalf of
Japan, in an iuterview published today,
declared that the Anglo-Japanese treaty
wa not directed against Asia, but Man
churia was within . it scope. It solely
meant to maintain the status quo. The
Manchuria Question was at present the
subject ot negotiations between Russia and
the United States, representing the Inter
est ot all the other powers, snd sa the
minister trusted the negotiations would
bring about a state of affairs In Manchuria
which would not be prejudicial to the
other power, it was unnecessary to pre
maturely dlacuas that question.
The present treaty has no collateral In
th shape of treaties between Japan and
other powers, but it doe not exclude the
possibility of a similar ' treaty between
Japan and Russia, of course with the full
knowledge of Great Britain.

At St. Peteraburg, cables the correspond

British government of Russia's proposals,
and Intimated that If Great Britain were
disinclined to enter on the agreement,
Japan would fall back on the Russian offer.
These negottatlona resulted in the arrange

and Marquis Ito notified Rusals ot hla in

Six men are dead aad as many more are
dying aa the result ot a battle between of
ficers from Mlddlesbore and mountaineers.
The battle, which waa one ef the most des
perate fight of lt kind la the history of
mountain warfare, occurred between apd
( o'clock this evening at Le ' Turner's
"Quarter House" saloon, three and a halt
mile from Mlddlesbore.
Last month some mule snd other goods
of Turner', were levied on in payment for
a debt, and a few nights sgo. It Is alleged,
he, with others, went to Virginia, where
the property had been taken, aecnrlng what
was formerly his and returned to the "Quar
ter House." 'Today Deputy unerin watt
Thompson summoned a posse of ten or fif
teen men for the purpose ot arresting Tur
ner at his saloon. ;
Turner had heard that an attempt would
be made to arrest him and he and his men,
fifteen In number, gave the officers a warm
Turner's surrender was demanded. His
reply was s round of shots. Charley Cecil
of MIddlesboro was riding a pony, in plain
view of the Turner men. Someone raised
a window of the log house and shot Cecil,
who tell dead. Instantly the man at the
window fell back, pierced by half a doxen
bullets. Then the firing began in earnest.
The officers scattered, and, hiding behind
trees, poured a galling fir into the moun
In the fight John Doyle, s railroad man,
waa badly wounded, perhaps fatally, and
Simon Bean, another railroad man, was
shot In 'th hand. Aa soon a Cecil was
killed his companions determined to burn

the battle a man applied a torch to aa ex

mediately shot down. Lee Turner and sev
eral of his friends, in some manner, es
caped and he Is now at Mingo mines, eight
miles from MIddlesboro. Several of his
men perished In the flames.
All sorts of rumors are afloat tonight,
one being that Ave Turnerlte were killed
by the attacking men and that Ave more
perished in the flames. It is also believed
that the posse lost more men than 'one
and that aome of th MIddlesboro fighters

Governor Cummin aald In part:
There sre some conclusions which .eam
to me beyond reasonable controversy. The
corporations which rover with their opera-
iiuua ma wnum nation snouia oe national,
not atate, corporatlona, and every dollar of
stock that ia Issued ahould be paid for In
money at par, ao that the capital repre
sented in the association would measure
I the actual value of the property it ao-
uon or competition woum nav. naen a
potent Inducement in many lnntanc.es, even
inougn ine capu.i wer limn. a to th real
value of the conaolidated property. W
muat, therefore, look deeper info tha auh.
lect. If experience haa taught us anything
it ls that there are but two force which
can be aafely trusted to regulate prices:
First, competition; second, th law. I can
not look with complacency upon the at
tempt on the part of the government to
convtruct a schedule for the sale of manu
factured products. Competition la. and
until we are leady to enter the laat dttris
of socialism, must remain the supreme rule
or industrial ill, and it la our Imperative
duty to preserve competition against the
aaault of consolidation and monopoly.
V Ith producing corporations properly
limited as I have already suggested I be-'
lleve that individual enterprise muat bs
chiefly relied upon, and I rest with confi
dence upon Us eventual victories.
Coatrol of Competition.
T cannot, however, leave the question
without uttering my conviction that It
we cannot create competition by law, we
can at least make sure that it la not ex
cluded by law. I am a profound believer
tn tha ay stem of tariff duties for which the
republican party in rwpunsiou ana wnirn
conmltutee Its highest title to the a tree tlon
of tha American people- I do not allow.
however, my devotion to tne principle to
blind me to the object It waa ordained

competition and protection, not one. but
both. We ahould keep our eyes eteadlly
unon the great end tariff duties wer In-
ed f ""0 attain-to give the utmost po-
.ibl. work and good wages to the Aniert-
ducers. I am willing to tan as my motto,
I can laborer. We should remember that
the point of view has rhsnged and that
formerly our chief object was. to prevent
the Invasion of our markets, while now It
Is to take and hold foreign markets.
