Dewey Tails of Negotiation! with Governor
General of Island.
CONDUCTED THROUGH BELGIAN CONSUL
Admiral to Attack, an Outlylnsr Fort,
Make the signal "Do Yoa r
renderf and Spanish to
Hoist White Flag;.
WASHINGTON, June 27. Admiral Dewey
continued his testimony before the senate
committee on the Philippines today. Re
plying to questions put by Senator Patter
son, he said that be had begun negotiations
with the. governor general of the Philip-
pines, General J.udens. for the surrender
of tb.3 city, and the negotiations were con
ducted through the Belgian consul, who
after the death of the British consul, bad
been very courteous In acting as a go-be-tweep.
It was a diplomatic negotiation, no let
ters being written. The admiral said he
had Informed General Merrltt of the proffer
of General Jaudena, but that he did not be
lieve that Merrltt had taken "much stock
In It." "I assured him that such was the
rase," said the admiral, "but told him of
the arrangement that before the surrender
should take place I was to engage an out
lying fort and make the signal,- according
to the International code, 'do you sun-en-
der,' after which the Spaniards- were to had not been there forty-eight hours before

discover the flag, notwithstanding I had sta
tioned fifty men to look out for it. It was
a thick day and I chanced to be the first
to discover It."
. He also said h had read the testimony
of General MacArthur saying that he knew say they regard Agulnaldo as personally

Asked by Mr. Tatterson to explain his
statement that General Merrltt had not
... , . . . n , . . .
accepted the repor that the Spaniard, had
agreed to capitulate, Admiral Dewey said
that was only his belief. "I do not be
lleve," he said, "that the general entirely
trusted the Spanish authorities. .Still he
did not say so In so many words. I may
add that I have since learned that aome of
the Spanish officers were tempted1 to fire at
us, then they did not do so. Even my own
flag lieutenant did not accept tbelr proffer
es In the best faith. I knew, however, that
they would surrender, for I understood
what straits they were in."
Replying to a question as. to whether the
agreement to surrender had been made
public at the time of the attack upon Ma
nila, Admiral Dewey said he thought not.
"There are," he said, 'lots of things which
are not communicated to the public."
Mr. Patterson sought to secure from Ad
miral Dewey an admission that Agulnaldo
had Issued a proclamation of independence
to the Flllnlno about the time of the sink-
Ins of the Snanlsh sauadron. but the ad-
mlral said he did not remember It. although
It was possible that he might have done so.
Mr. Patterson then read the paper for-

that Consul Williams, who had been sts-
loned at Manila, was an honest man, ttl-
hough, perhaps, quite enthusiastic. The
admiral did not, however, remember to
have promised to Agulnaldo his "cordial

Mr. Patterson asked concerning that gen

had conducted himself In a dlgnlfled man- trugt raw B(J a tQ more (uy protect trado

truth of this statement.
Speaking of Agulnaldo's loyalty, the ad
mlral said he tad ' become auspicious of
that leader before the receipt ot his
proclamation of July 15. He said, "I began
to suSDect that he wss not loyaf to US,

Admiral Dewey also testified concerning
the arms sent to Manila by Agulnaldo and
Senator Dietrich asked the admiral It "he
did not helleva that the arms wers nur-
chaled with money previously paid by Spain
to secure peacs and that It was his tnten-
tlon to use the money to foment another
Insurrection for the purpose of gain."
The admiral's reply was; "Exactly so."

Mr. Patterson next called attention to a
number of proclamations forwarded by him
to Washington in May, but Admiral Dewey
said he did not remember having read them,
and tn explanation of hla failure in thla re
spect he said:

Patterson, tbe sdmtrat said that while
Agulnaldo waa located at Cavlte and was
under his observstlon he waa always hu

Senator Car-neck then put a number of
questions to tbs witness. Replying to these
ths admiral said it waa true be bad as-
stated Agulnaldo In organising his army by

time there were no American soldiers In

that he wss under no restraint. Hsvlng laid

DEBATE OVER RECIPROCITY
Senator Teller . Hake .Sharp Criticism of
Bill m Now Proposed.
PLATT RETURNS VERY CUTTING REPLY
Asserts that Colorado Senator Is
Only Barking; t'pBeet Sugar Trast
WA6HINQT0N. June 27. Quits unex
pectedly a sharp debate aross In the senate
today. on the question of Cuban reciprocity.
Mr. Teller ot Colorado) at whose Instance
the senate committee on Cuban relations
made Its investigation of the subject, de
livered a spirited speech In opposition to
reciprocity with Cuba. Ho charged that
ths entire- reciprocity propaganda had been
backed by the American Sugar Refining
company. nd by Americans who were in
terested financially In Cuban- sugar planta
tions. The purpose, he said, was to strike
down an Important agricultural Industry of
this country. He wss willing to Join In a
general revision of the tariff to meet
changed conditions,- but unless the duties
on Iron and steel and other products were
reduced with those on sugar In order that
the arrangement might be equitable the
beet sugar growers never would consent to
a reduction on their produot. -
Mr. Piatt of Connecticut, chslrman ot the
Cuban relations committee, replied to the
Colorado " senator. He maintained that
there waa nothing sordid in the desire to
promote reciprocal relations between the.
United States arm Tuba and said the mak
ing of some concessions to Cuba was .a
plain duty of this country. It was a duty
this government owed to. Heel f as well as
to Cuba, because absolutely friendly rela
tions with the new republic were a neces
sary means of defense: to this country un-
less the UnlUd, States should annex thent Roosevelt's message of greeting and
island. That, he hpped, would not be done, !
aa he regarded- annexation aa a grave
menace to our insulations.
Teller ' ( ses Nharp Words.
After asking, for the printing of several
documents Mr. f ellef preferred to the state
ments made of (he, distress in Cuba and to
.the statement that' unless the United
States should give relief to the Island a
revolution would occur. h Mr. Teller de-
lared that the statements were, untrue and
that there never' had been any condition In
the island which warranted the statements.
He asserted that It had been proved
affirmatively that no such condition existed.
"I say, said he, measuring my words,
that never In piy1 experience In public life
has there been so patent and open an at
tempt to deceive the American people as
He said the attempt at. deception waa
made by those who were relying upon the
well-known desire pf tbe American people
o assist any .other people who were In
distress. Discussing the beet sugar indus
try, tbe Colorado senator said the question
was one ot great. Importance to the people
of the weat, They sjndled It and It did not
ibko ineiu long 10 ascertain inai tne
American ' Sugar Refining company the
American Sugar trust was particularly ac
tive In urging thj8j reduction ot the duty on
Cuban sugar.''';' .
He ' said there was. some desire on the
part of the Cubans to . secure a reduction
of duty op tobacco, but that was lost eight
of In view of the propaganda for a reduc
tion in the dutypn sugar. "There has
been." be vdFfjHNWdt ."nqre misrepresenta
tions snd misstatements about our obliga
tions to Cuba- tnajTaboat almost shy other
question. EversiO obligation which this
country was- UndW tb -Ctiba: has been per
formed," he"a1d,'aild 'he challenged any
senator to Indicate 'any obligation which
the United 8ates was under to the island.
So Distress In Cnpa. ..
There Is no distress In Cuba," he de
clared, "and my correspondence' with the
people pf the Island, prove this. The peo
ple are not mendicants st our hands. The
American - holders' of sugar lands In Cuba
and the American Sugar Refilling company
are at the bottom, ot this effort to change
our financial system with reference to
Cuba." : :-
In conclusion he said the proposed bill
of the committee on relation with Cuba
proceeded on the theory that the United
States could not produce its own sugar.
This he declared was unfair to the people.
Mr. Piatt of Connecticut, ohalrman of the
committee on Cuban relatlohs. renlled
brieny to Mr. Teller's argument; He de
clared that It was In "the nsture ot sn
attack by the beet sugar trust on' tbe re
finers sugar trust.
It Is." he Insisted, "entirely outside the
question whether the' United States ought
to enter into reciprocal relations with our
In a brief reply to Mr. Platt'a statement.
Mr. Teller referred to his expressed fesr of
annexation as a "baby cry" and a childish
attack on those who differed from him on
the question of reciprocity. He declared
that question had been started in the In
terest of the great American augar trust,
and that people had been deceived regarding
the question, "by the purchased newspapers
of this country." ' ,
The Cherokee Indian bill was then psssed.
Mr. Allison then presented the conference
report on the District of Columbia appro
priation bill, and It was agreed to and thus
passing ths measure.
The conference report on the Choctaw
and Chickaaaw Indian treaty bill was also
agreed to. -j:
The following bills, among other were
"To provide for the organisation of prl

day, either clcard out to tho country,
teropted by ths ' perfect weather, or else
stayed at home.
Certainly the main thoroughfares could
not have been more deserted on any Sun
day In the year. The big hotels, however,
were each an easts of activity amid the
otherwise general stagnation. Many Ameri
cans are preparing to start for the continent
and others haVe already gone there or to
ths country, while numbers took sdvantage
of the fine day to visit the great fleet as
sembled off Bplthead. Sir Thomas Llpton Is
entertaining a distinguished party on board
his steam yacht Erin.
The fashionable cafes and restaurants
were the scenes of numerous smart lunch
eons, while extensive but quiet preparations
were made for week-end house parties at the
surrounding country places, whose owners
seem to think thst the situation warrants
at least some subdued gaiety In honor of the
many prominent visitors.

Colonel John Blddle, General Wilson's aide,
will return to America.
The presence of the princess of Wales and
the Inclusion of Mrs. Reld In the audience
today was simply a continuation of that
specially friendly attitude which the British
royal family and government have through
out shown toward the American mission.

cepting President Mitchell's offer to ar
bitrate tbere has been no proposition ad
vanced by either of the parties to the con-

prediction that the struggle will be one to
finish still holds good.
However, It Is still believed here that
ome outside party Is going over the situa
tion with a view of finding a way to bring
the miners and the operators together. If
ucb la being done, it Is not likely thst
ny .move will be made until after the spe-
lal national convention of the mine work
rs held next month at Indianapolis. It is
not unlikely that the report of Labor Com-
mssloner Carroll D. Wright to President
Roosevelt may suggest some way that may
ead to a settlement. The puhllttlon of
be report Is eagerly awaliod by the strikers.
Considering the great number of men who
are Idle, the strike is a remarkable one.
ncluding those who have been laid off by
reason of dull times on account of the sus
pension. It Is estimated that fully 165,000
persons are out of work in this compara
tively small section of the state.
