time hsd been on the defense, assumed the
aggressive and Issued an order Saturday,
June 11, discharging; a total of 525 men
from Ita shops In Omaha, Cheyenne and
Armstrong. Another, tilling blew was then
dealt by the Union Pacific when during the
present week It promulgated another order
letting out 600 more men at Cheyenne and
closing the shops. Still another effective
stroke came Friday when the company
practically depleted its Omaha shops by
discharging 137 machinists and helpers,
'in all there have been about 1,100 men sum
marily discharged by the company within
'about a week. This, In brief, Is the hts
' tory and progress of the trouble.
Charge Violation of Afreement.
One month ago the committee from the
machinists called on the Ualon Pacific offi
cials and presented grievances. At that
t time a 20 per cent increase In wages waa
asked, twice as much as was asked In the
conference yesterday.- After some dellb-
: eratlon the machinists agreed to com
promise and an agreement was drawn up
. and signed by representatives of both aides.
The machinist hold that the officials
' have violated the provisions of this agree-
; ment and upon this basis new trouble was

concerned they are getting good money and
for that matter the machinists and boiler

country and higher than moat."
It was learned Saturday at noon that the
Union Pacific had Just bought eighty new
nglnes, ths first of which are to be received
and put Into aervlce the latter part of July.

WASHINGTON, June 28. The third day's
testimony given by Admiral Dewey before
the senate committee on the Philippines
began with a reference to the statement
made by the admiral at the first day's
proceeding concerning the proffer made by
the Spanish governor general to surrender
Senator Carmack called attention to the
fact that the press reports made it ap
pear that he had said that during the next
twenty-four hourt after the destruction of
the Spanish fleet on May 1 there had been
several proffers of surrender on the part
of the governor. The. admiral replied that
te had said that between May 1 and August
13 the governor general had sent word
to him more than once that he would be
pleased to surrender to the navy.
The first proffer, he said, was made In
May through the English consul and tub-
equent 'proffers were made through the
Belgian consul. At the time, the admiral
admitted, Agulnaldo had begun operations
around Manila and wis working toward the
Taking up the thread of the Investigation
where It was dropped yesterday Senator
Carmack ssked the witness If all the trou
ble In the Philippines had been due to
Agulnaldo. "I won't aay that," the ad
miral replied, "but," he continued, "I will
repeat that If we had had 6,000 troops at
Manila on May 1 the city could have been
taken possession of and we would have had,
at least for the time, no trouble with the
native. They were our friends then."
Making" Too Much of Affnlnaldo.
In reply to other questions put by Senator
Carmack, concerning Agulnaldo, the ad
miral said: "I think you are making too
much of Agulnaldo. He was a mere figure
head and was surrounded by stronger men
than himself. Mablnl was one of these and
General Luna, whom he had killed, was
Replying to another question the. admiral
said It waa the general report throughout
the east that in 1897 Agulnaldo had be
trayed his people to- the Spaniards for
money. Nor did he remember that this
report had been denied by American officers
In ths Philippines. Among other officers
quoted in this . connection wss General
Greene and the admiral called attention to
the fact that General Greene had not given
his authority. "If," he said, Agonclllo told
him, I don't think the authority was good.
Why do you say that Agulnaldo took
the lion's share ot the property gathered
by the Insurgents?"
"Because he was living at Malolos like a
prince. He had nothing when he landed In
Manila and could have procured the means
for this ostentation In no other way. He
began immediately after arrival to take
every dollar In eight. It may be ungrateful
In me to state the facts, but It Is true that

ships. Stock were taken from the Philip
'Was any statement made of this circum
stance at the time?"
"No; that Is wsr, as you "know." '
Philippine Army Only- a Mob.
Continuing his reply to this question, the
-admiral said ths Phlltplne army waa then
onlr a mob and without oraanlzatlon and
hd to. be fed and , clothed. , He did as
many have done he made the country sup
"Did you regard that proceeding as pll-
lae and loot"
"Well, we didn't do that way. For In
stance, I took all the coal In aight, but I
paid for it."
Senator Patterson Do you refer to Agul
naldo taking property for the support ot
th army as loot snd pillage?
Admiral Dewey That Is one part of It.
Senator Carmack You didn't object at
Admiral Dewey No, but he soon got be
yond me. .
A number of questions were asked In re
gard to statements mads by Generals
Greene, Bell and others, but the witness
asked to ba excused from criticising off!
cers of the army and the chair (Senator
Beverldge) said that he was not required
to answer 'any questions, .the replies to
which would Involve such criticism. There
upon ths admiral said he was "very glad"
and Senator Carmack said hs knew of no,
ruch rule, but be supposed he would have
to aubmlt. The admiral added that bo
opinions by others would change hla own
opinions of Agulnaldo.
Agulnaldo Forced Upon Dewey.
Senator Carmack Then Is it a fact that
you took a man to Manila to be a leader of
the native people who had but recently be
trayed those people for a bribe?
Admiral Dewey I think that would have
made no difference; the country was under
a reign of terror.
Then you wanted a man who could or
ganlse the natives?" ...
No, I didn't want anyone. Agulnaldo
and his people were forced upon me by Con
sul Pratt and others.
"Did ths consul and others have any
power to force these people upon you?"
"Yes, by constant pressure. I didn't want
the Filipino refugees because"! didn't be
Uev that a half doten of them would do
any good In view ot th report that thou
sands would rise up In insurrection upon
our, arrival at Manila. I thought they
would play a very amall part."
'Then you placed the country at the
mercy of a man who would plunder and
rob, notwithstanding you-had no need of
Declines to Answer.
This question the admiral declined to an
awer and Senator Patterson took ths wit
ness, asking If Agulnaldo had ever talked
to him on the basis of selling out to ths
Americana. The admiral replied In the
negative and Mr. Patterson then asked If
the Philippine leader had ever asked him
for money. The reply was that Agulnaldo
bad asked him to exchange gold for Mexl
"I wss prstty sure as to where he had
gotten the dollars, as hs hsdn't brought
them with him," said 'the admiral, "and I
thought that ths fact that be wanted gold
waa pretty good Indication that be was
getting ready to leave.
"That waa what made me think that the
man waa feathering his own nest, but It
was only a suspicion."
Here the admiral again referred to Ag
utnaldo's style st Malolaa and Senator Pat
terson asked If that style had not served
the purpose of Inspiring the admiration
of his followers and holding ths allegiance,
To thla Inquiry the witness replied that
the atyle waa "probably mora Inspiring to
them than to those from whom ths prop
srty hsd been taken.
"Do you think that Is proper testimony r
ssked Mr. Patterson and Chairman Bever
ldge Interfered with a strong protest to
Innuendo agalnat Admiral Dewey. Ha eon
sldered the question as discourteous.
Mr. Patterson, however, disclaimed any
Intention to be otherwiae than respectful
and he continued his questions.
i "Do yea- know,- he - asked; "whether
Agulnaldo haa a dollar toesy ?" '
"I don't knew," waa the rapty. "I
avn't been In the Philippines for three
years; bow should I know."
"Do you know from your experience
that there wsa never a day while be waa
In anna that he could not have made him
self rich at the expense of the American
government it he had. given up?"
Th withes hesitated, and aald ha could
bt answer the question. Ho then was
told by the chslr tbat he need not do so.
You' do know," Mr. Patterson went on.
'there were several who got good fat
Th reply waa In the negative. The
witness also aald ha knew nothing ot the
payment of money to the Cuban Oeneral
Gomes, and he added the suggestion to
Senator Patterson that he should not put
such questions to him.
Ask A bent Aaderaoa.
Senator Patterson also, ssked a number
of questions concerning Admiral Dewey's
assertion with Oeneral Anderson, after hit
arrival and hla visit to Agulnaldo In com
pany with the general. Ha aald he had
suggested to Oeaeral Anderson on th oc
casion ot that visit that hs need not wear
bis uniform or put on his sword, but that
bis blouse would be sufficient, sijd that the
suggsstlon had been adopted. Referring
to a report of. that Interview mad by
Oeneral Anderson and . to copies of letters
written by th general, in which Agul
naldo wss assured of a desire tor amicable
relations. Admiral Dewey said that he did
not remember that any. Such assurance
bad. been given. Speaking of Oeneral An
derson's letters to , the Filipino chieftain
ths witness said: .
"When I heard that he waa writing let
ters to Agulnaldo I advised him against
.He added that he .was not converssnt
with all of Oeneral Anderson's acts Before
the arrival of General Merrltt, as the
genersl had f one his own way, nils he
(Dewey) had gone hi. He aiao saia uen
ersl Anderson, had offended Agulnaldo on
the occasion of their visit by his ques
tion. When Senator Patterson pressed other
questions calling for reference to state
ments made by army offioers and others,
the admiral declined to answer, ssylng: "I
am her to testify to what t know and I
will give all the Information I can In that
way but I am not responsible for what
others say. I .don't Ilk your questions
and I don't think I ought to ba required to
reply to them.".
The chair assured the witness that he
need not answer them. The admiral said,
however, In reply to further pressing, that
his views did not coincide with those ex
pressed by .General Anderson In a magaitna
They do not . coincide," he said, "we
differed very much from the beginning."
Beverldge -and Dietrich Inquire.
Senators Beverldge and Dietrich then
asked a few questions: The former re
minded the admiral of a visit that hs (Sen
ator Bevevrldge) had paid the admiral on
the flagship Olympla when she lay In the
harbor at Manila and asked him if ha r-
ememhered a conversation that had oc
curred between them, when, while they
were looking out from the deck, the ad
miral had said, referring to the success of
the American' arms, that "he could not
help thinking that It was all due to a
higher power than ours."
"I do," responded the admiral. "I re
member that I said that and It Is my opin
Senator Beverldge read extracts from the
report of ths first Philippine commission,
of which Admiral Dewey was a memmber,
In which ths statement was made tbat the
Fillplnoa were Incapable of standing alons
and that It . the , - American; support was
withdrawn they would lapse Into- anarchy,
and asked him If that had been his opin
ion. - He recited in the affirmative, adding
that he- still -entertained lhaf View.
Senator Carmack: "Was that always your
opinion?" ' '
Admiral Dewey: '"Yea. True, I made a
comparison once with the Cubans, eaylng
the Filipinos were more - eapable ot self
government then the Cubans I think that
neither the Fillplnoa nor the Cubans ara
capable of self-government."
Senator .Dietrich questions were in
tended to ahow the atate of Admiral Dew
ey'a mind concerning the Filipinos at th
time of ths engagement with the Spanish
squadron. Ha aaked .the admiral If it was
not true that if he had recognised the Fil
ipinos aa allies,, trusted them as such and
considered them capable of taking charge
of Manila, he. would have accepted the
proffer for the surrender ot Manila before
the arrival of the American troops?
'Yes," replied the witness, "tbat Is trns,
and It ia a good idea.. I had not thought of
it, and I am glad you suggested It. It
makes my testimony stronger. It is true,
and the fact tbat I did no taccept the sur-,
render and put them In charge shows that
I did not trust them. -It never entered my
head to do tbat."
With this Admiral Dewey was discharged
as a wltnese and bs expressed himself as
much gratified to aecure his release.' -

WASHINGTON. June 28. A lively debate
was precipitated in ths senate today over
a resolution of Mr. Morgan of Alabama, au
thorising the committee o Interoceanic
canals to investigate the statue of Ameri
can stockholders of the Panama canal com
pany with a view ot protecting them In the
Mr. Spooner of Wisconsin, Mr. Hsnna of
Ohio, and Mitchell of Oregon, antagonised
the resolution, maintaining that It was ,i
matter with which ths United State lad
nothing to do. Mr. Morgan warmly advo
cated the proposition but It finally went to
the calendar without action.
Mr. Deboe and Mr. Blackburn of Ken
tucky, engaged In an Interesting but good
natured discussion of Kentucky politics In
the course of .which the former alleged
that the reason why Governor Taylor did
not return to Kentucky and stand trial as
aa accessory to the murder of Governor
Ooebel was that the courts were corrupt
and that the 1100,000 reward offered for
apprehension ot the murderer of Ooebel
had been used to corrupt the courts and
bribe witnesses. This Mr. Blackburn em
paihlcally dented and declared he was so
thoroughly convinced tbat he would be
willing to submit the case to any Judge and
Jury In the union.

When the senate convened a partial con

.Mr. Teller of Colorado presented a pe
tition from Este G. Rathbone praying for
a full Investigation Into his performance
ot duties as director ot posts ot Cubs dur
ing the occupation of Cuba. He maintained
In his petition that ho was unjustly tried
and unfairly convicted, and that he Is en
titled to a full, fair and Impartial Investi
gation by congress.
Mr. Teller said the petition was unusual
snd the conditions were unusual, and at
his request the petition was read In full.
The petitioner asked that full Justice be
done to the end that aspersions upon his
Character might be eliminated.
Mr. Teller said the petitioner was. not
now In Jeopardy, but would have been had
not a general amnesty been granted by the
Cuban government. He stood before the
world aa a convicted criminal. The case
was unique, but It was one which might
arise any time In the Philippines. It
teemed to him that the question demanded
Investigation by the senate. While he did
not psss on the guilt or Innocence ot the
petitioner, he believed there wss a fair
presumption of his Innocence.
The petition wss referred to the com
mittee on relations with Cuba.
A resolution offered yesterday by Mr.
Morgan "providing tor an Investigation by
the committee on .interoceanic canals to
ascertain whether any claims exist In favor
ot cltlxena of the United States against the
new or the old Panama Canal company; and
authorising the committee to ascertain
whether unlawful or corrupt efforts hsve
been made to obtain any part of the sum
that may be applied to the purchase of the
property of the new Panama Canal com
pany, or to Costa Rica or Nicaragua, by
the United States waa taken up.
After Mr. Morgan had explained the reso
lution Mr. Spooner of Wisconsin vigorously
opposed Its adoption, declaring It was with
out precedent, entirely mischievous snd ob
structive of the action ot congress. The
United Statea was in no position;- he
thought, to act aa agent for bondholders and
shareholders of ths Panama Canal company.
Those people' would have to look "to the
French courta for their rights. It was not
tht business of the United States to con
stitute Itself a guardian bt the French
court and of the ptople who had" claims
against the Panama Canal company.
- Mr. Morgan interrupted Mr. Spooner to
say that ha wanted to know whether the
lobby that had been hanging about Wash
ington was to receive any part ot the $40,
000,000. He aald brlbea were paid to men
who conducted great negotiations.
Mr. Mitchell of Oregon said he could not
support ths Morgan resolution because It
would tend to delay work on the canal.
Mr. . Hanna, in opposing ths resolution.
resented ths insinuation that a lobby was
here. He challenged Mr. Morgan to pro
duct proof of such a charge. Mr. Hanna
said Mr. Morgan had tried to throw a cloud
upon tha Panama company's title and was
endeavoring to lay upon it calumny and

JOY IN LONDON NOW
(Continued from First Page.)
Kitchener, the stsnd proprietors have to
rely on the king s first public reappearance,
which Is likely to be a drive through tht
streets to the nstlonal thanksgiving serv
ice. That, however, must be some time
hence, as a tnan In his sixty-first year, In
spite ot his wonderfully quick. Tecovery
from the Immediate results of ths opera
tion, will probably have to submit to a
rather lengthy convalescence.
What at first sight waa one of the moat
pathetic features ot tha postponement of
the coronation, among all the serious finan
cial embarrassment on every hand, was tho
utter demoralization of the street "fakirs,"
who had been counting for months past on
a rich harvest. Features of the Strand,
Fleet street and the hotel entrances today
were street urchins, mostly of tender years,
apparently weeping over trays of cheap
medals, pins and other out-of-date and In
appropriate souvenirs. Their general wall
ing pleas were always ' addressed to the
well dressed pedestrians: "Only a penny,
stuck wlf me medals," "Please buy some
thing." , These appeals frequently succeeded-
A noticeable fact, however, was that
these "tears" snd "grief among the sharp
streets Arabs only seem to have developed
today. The symptoms spread rapidly.
Among scores ot clever little plagiarists In
other walks ot -life the same keen disap
pointment was visible:
Anaerloan Women Disappointed.
Had the coronation occurred American
women , would have constituted one of ths
most brilliant features. The duchess of
Marlborough had a new coronet, even more
magnificent than the big pearl-tipped tiara
she has hitherto worn at court. Her un
worn acquisition rivalled that ot the duch
ess of Portland, In which the great Port
land diamond Itself, worth 12,000. has
been reset. .
Mrs. Arthur Tsget,' who would have had
a seat In the king's box at Westminster
Abbey, would have worn a costly emerald
and diamond tiara, collar,., pendant and
brooches formerly belonging to ier mother,
Mrs. Pa ran 'Stevens. Mrs, Paget's dresa
waa embroidered with diamonds and peaj-ls.
-Lady Ablnger, who was a Miss Msgruder,
daughter of the late Commodore Magruder,
U. S. N.:' and widow of the third Baron
Ablnger, had her peeress' robes embroidered"
with gold, and, besides her diamond coro
net, would havo worn a four-row pearl
necklace, clasped with A huge sapphire and
surrounded with diamonds, once the prop
erty ot Marie Antoinette.
Lady .Stratford, -formerly Mrs. Samuel
Colgate of New York,' would certainly have
made a aensatlon as she had a very high
diamond tiara and Instead of a necklace
would have had rubles and pearls, drsped
like an algulllette. on her left shoulder,
Lady Defferln, formerly Miss Florence
Davis of New York, Intended to wear all
the heirlooms of the Dufferln family, which
she recently inherited. . .
Lady Grey Egerton, who was Miss Mae
Cuyler, daughter of the late Major J. Wayne
Cuyler, V: 8. A., was going to dress In white
embroidered with gold lilies, with a dla
mond tiara, a diamond and pearl collar and
two tiOcklaces, one of rubles and diamonds
and ons all diamonds.
Lady Deerhurst, stepdaughter ot Charles
Bonyngs of San Francisco, was t'o wear
beautiful black pearls, a diamond necklace
and a -diamond tiara.
Depew Donbte the Bulletin.
NEW YORK, June W. The London cor
respondent of the Herald cablet tbat Sena
tor Depew, who hat followed the hlttory
of King Edward s case very carefully, does
not entertain the moat optimistic view of
"It you will notice the. bulletins thst
have been Issued." said the stnstor, "you
will see that they have all been worded
with the utmost care. . To anyone reading
between the line It la apparent those In
charge ot the case are not at all aangulna as
to the king's recovery. This convinces ma
that the royal pat'ent'a condition Is far
more serious than people la general ap
Jamee R. Keen would express no opinion
on the chsnoes ot ths king's recovery.
"Whatever the result may be," he aald
"it will not affect values In America. If
the king should die, his son, ths prince of
Walts, -would be proclaimed king within
fifteen minutes. Ths government would go
on as usual." -

Games, races aed - athletic- competitions
filled up the afternoon entertainment. la
a tug-of-war between teams representing
England and America, America won. In the
evening the usual concert was held.
Tha next day. June 27, at o'clock In tht
morning Lucanla got In communication
by wireless telegraphy with the French
line steamer La Savole. from New York for
