Acknowledges and Accepts the Sovereignty of the United States-Time for Lasting Peace. . BY THE NEW ASSOCIATED PRESS P.M.J . ANILA, April-19. By Atlantic Cable. Follow ing is Aguinaldo's address to the Filipino peo ple, made public this evening: "I believe I am not in error in presuming that, the unhappy fate to which my adverse fortune has led me is not a surprise to those who have been familiar with the progress of the war. The lessons taught - with a full meaning, and which have recently come to my knowledge, suggest with irresistible force that a com plete termination of hostilities and lasting peace are not only desirable, but absolutely essential to the welfare of the Philippine Islands. "The Filipinos have never been dismayed at their weakness, nor have they falteredin following the path pointed out by their fortitude and courage. The time has come, however, in which they find their advance along this path to be impeded by an irresistible force which, while it restrains them, yet enlightens their minds and opens to them another course, presenting them the cause of peace. This cause has been joyfully embraced by the majority of my fellow-countrymen, who have already united around the glorious sovereign banner of the United States. In this banner they repose their trust and belief that under its protection the Filipino people will attain all those promised liberties which they are beginning to enjoy. , : ' , -fy ;. ; "The country has declared unmistakably iw favor of peace. So be it. There has been enough blood, enough tears and enough desolation.v This wi?l,iw.ic'3 not be ignored by the men still in arms if they are animated by a desire to serve our noble people, which has thus clearly manifested its will. ' So W I respect this will, now that it is known to me. "After mature deliberation, I resolutely proclaim to the world that I cannot refuse to heed the voice of a people longing for peace, nor the lamentations of thousands of families yearning to see their .dear ones enjoying the liberty and the promised generosity of the great American nation.

Aguinaldo's action In issuing an address to tho Filipinos is not a surprise to the President and Secretary of War. Almost Immediately after his capture by Gen. Funs-ton, Gen. MacArthur Informed the Secretary of War that Aguinaldo would probably Issue a . manifest to his countrymen. At no time since that report was received have the War Department officials had any reason to doubt that Aguinaldo would take such action. The report from Manila that Gen. Mac-Arthur Intended to signalize the advance" of Aguinaldo's address by releasing 1000 insurgent prisoners is In line with instructions already sent to him by the Secretary of War. f There is no doubt in the minds of the officials here that Aguinaldo's address will have considerable Influence with the insurgents, who have, up to this time, refused .to recognize American authority and accept the terms of the amnesty proclamation which expires May 1. This proclamation, as originally issued, would have expired April 1, but upon representations made by prominent Insurgent officials to Gen. Mac-Arthur, it was extended thirty days. This leaves but ten days more in which the opposing insurgents have to present themselves to American officials for the purpose of being included In the terms Of amnesty. Those who fail to do so within the time remaining will be considered ineligible for any office in the government of the Philippines, and will be deprived of all privileges and rights of citizenship until such disability is removed. There are few officers of any prominence connected with the Philippine Insurrection who have not already surrendered and thus taken the oath of allegiance. Gen. Alejandrlno and Gen. Trias are among the most prominent who continue in opposition, and the War Department officials hope that Aguinaldo's address will induce them to surrender within a short time. Should they do so, and take the oath of allegiance, there Is little doubt that their followers will do likewise, thus putting an end to all organized opposition to American authority In the Philippine archipelago.' , , With the Filipinos themselves de clartng the insurrection at an end, this, goyernment would then proclaim peace and make immediate preparations;.-for the institution of a-central civil government under the direction of the Philippine Commission. This is expected to take place not later than July. 1. 1 By that tltne.i the milf tary government will probably cease to exist,-and will be replaced-by a civil government, under a civil Governor. Plans for this government have already been discussed by the Philippine Commission, and it has practically been decided by the President that Judge Taft will be the first civil Governor. The inauguration of the civil government is not intended, to carry with, it, however, the abandonment of the military occupation of the. islands, as garrisons will be maintained at all the principal points, and every precaution taken to guard against any renewal of hostilities. Gen. MacArthur will not be succeeded by Gen. Chaffee in command of the military forces until the new government has been instituted, but Gen. Chaffee will soon go to Manila and there arrange for inspection of the island for the purpose of determining, what military force, in his opinion, will be needed. It is expected that he will leave China before the close of the present month, and that he will occupy nearly two months in his inspection of the islands, and in preparation of a plan for their military occupation. . Not until , he has determined what force will be needed will there be any decision reached in regard to the withdrawal of the troops from the Philippines, and until them the Secretary of War will continue the formation of new. regiments for the army on the same basis as planned by the War Department before the capture of Aguinaldo. Should Gen. Chaffee decide that the islands can be policed by a smaller military force than Gen. Mac-Arthur, now has, some battalions of regiments in the Philippines will be brought back to this country, and new regiments be assigned to service there. "INFAMOUSLY WRONG." TOWNE'S COPPERHEAD TALK. BIT THE NEW ASSOCIATED PRESS P.M. KANSAS CITY. April 19. The Journal tomorrow will say that ex-Senator Charles A. Towne was shown a copy of Aguinaldo's proclamation last night. He said: "It is clearly the utterance of a man who yields to force only, and considering the occurrences of the past two years, , it constitutes one of the most pathetic incidents in history. "One thing should be borne in mind, the surrender of every hostile force in the . Philippines, and the absolute acceptance of our dominion throughout the archipelago does not dispose of the question Involved In the acquisition and government by this republic of distant crtlonial dependencies. Wrong as the policy Is, and cruel as It is against the Filipinos, it is infamously more wrong and cruel from the standpoint of the welfare of the United States." ITS GOOD EFFECT. PEACE AT HOME AND ABROAD. BY THE NEW ASSOCIATED PRESS P.M. WASHINGTON, April 19. It ! believed by the administration that the manifesto of Aguinaldo will have a decidedly good effect, both in the Philippines and In this country. It will take some time for Its dissemination among the Filipinos, but It is believed to be of great service, and will make rapid 4CONTINVED ON SECOND PAGE.) GUN FIGHT OVER LAND.

Superior Sunset Company Tries to Seize Valuable Tract. Warning Given. BY DIRECT WIRE TO THE TIME8 RAKERSFIELD. April 19.-Exclu-slve Dispatch. The predicted clash in the Midway oil district over land belonging to tne Mt. Diablo Company, took place last night, and as a result two men were shot. How badly they are injured cannot be as certained, owing to the remoteness of the scene of the struggle from both rail ' and telegraphic communication, but it appears that one of the men is shot through the leg and the other through the lungs. The latter is be lieved to be in a critical condition. The men are named Walker and Cornell, and one of them Is reputed to be a professional gun fighter, im ported from Nevada, . The injured men were in the employ of the Superior Sunset Company, which occu pies the position of a "Jumper," the land upon, which it moved Vts rig, a few idays ago, having until that time remained in the undisputed possession of the Mt. Diablo Company, which purchased the tract from the original locators and performed the necessary assessment work, expending a total of $15,000. Leases had been formulated, and within a short time four rigs would have been sending down drills In search for oil. The recent strike of t"?Bir: City i practically " demon strated that the ground was valuable, and this excited the cupidity of the Superior Sunset, which got its ma chinery, together and without warning moved upon the quarter and began rushing the work of building a derrick and installing the plant. This action alarmed the neighboring claimants, for the reason that If the land of one party could be so taken away, none of the holders in the district had any security in their possession of the property, and the consequence was the forming of a vigilance committee. It was this body whiffet-was responsible for last night's work, . The Mt.'Diablo people had been as sured that if they demanded peaceful possession, their request would be granted, and acting on the suggestion which came from the "Jumpers," they left last evening for the field, reaching their destination about midnight, intending to take action the following morning. They were preparing to retire when a rusiiiaae oi rtne snots was heard close at hand, and an investigation being made, it appeared that the vigilantes had taken up the fight, and gone in the night to dispossess the "Jumpers." Upon their approach to the rig, they were ordered to halt, and they In turn called upon the sentry who had accosted them, to throw up his hands. "Throw up your own hands!" he re plied, and opened Are. He discharged a six-shooter twice, and the vigilantes then turned loose at him, finally bringing him and another guard down. The committee men then withdrew, and left the QUGAR DUTY IS UPHELD. Government Justified in Imposing Tax on Russian Sugar.

BIG PROJECT FOR GENERATION OF POWER. Work to Be Commenced on a Million-Dollar Plant to Furnish Power for Montana Mining Companies Lands Already Acquired. ' BY DIRECT WIRE TO THE TIMES. J HELENA (Mont..) April 19. Exclusive Dispatch. Work will be commenced this year on a new dam at Stubb's Ferry, on the Missouri River, that will entail an expenditure cf $1,000,000. A new power-house will ba put up, and 10,000 additional horsepower will be generated and transmitted to Butte. The present capacity of the Canon Ferry plant is Insufficient to meet the demands for additional power at Butte. Former Gov. Samuel T. Hauser, representing the Missouri River Power Cnpany, has been in New York for some time, arranging the details for the improvement, and during Jthe last two months the Missouri River Power Company, has been acquiring the land3 necessary to hold the flood water for the new dam. Gov. Hauser tias taken an option, and the land and water rights in th- vicinity o Stubb's Ferry for $22,000. ' At present the Bu.Ua mines', concentrators and smelters are using about 30,000 horse-power, for which they pay all the way from $125 to $200 per horse-power per annum. The contracts will beJ let for the work as eoon as ail details for the improvement can be made. The total capacity of the power plants owned by the Missouri Power Company will, when the new dam and plant is com pleted, be 20,000 horse-power, which for the most part, will be consumed in the mines and smelters of Butte. The company now furnishes power for the East Helena smelter and the Peck concentrator. The company will soon have two lines of wire to Butte to protect it against losa In case one Una should break. SN0WSIIDE'S FATAL SWEEP. Carries Away Boarding-house of the Alta Mine at Telluride, Colo., and Kills Richard Pendergrast, the Cook. BY DIRECT WIRE TO THE TIMES TELLURIDE (Colo..) April 19. Exclusive Dispatch. This afternoon a snowslide swept away the boarding-house of the Alta mine, killing Richard Pendergrast, the cook.
