K). — In the reply of the Americans to the Spanish claims submitted at the last meeting regarding the Philippines, the Americans hold that there was justification under the terms of the protocol for the discussion of the future of the Philippine islands, and they also claim that the occupation of Manila is a military occupation, which justifies the United States in collecting the revenues, administering the government and exercising all the functions of possession. n General Kuropean Conflict. PARIS, Nov. 14. — The Gaulois, referring to the Philippine question as pre senting serious complications, says: "The thing to be feared is no longer a renewal of the conflict between America and Spain owing to a rupture of the negotiations, but a general European conflict. The Fashoda incident is only the prorogue to a big drama which is soon to occupy the theater of huer-Eiwopeau politics, and oil reading the papers of Berlin, London ane Madrid, one feels that something uncomfortable is in the air. Spain knows that resistance upon her part isolated as she is, would have no chance of success, and she is looking for tt friend in Europe. Before Fashoda any such search would have been useless, but now England is anxious to satisfy her ambitions iu the far east." Continuing, the Gauloi asserts that England is trying to bring about an' offensive and defensive alliance with the United States, o: which alliance, according to the Gaulois, Great Britain alone woulc reap the benefit.

Chickamatign in .lime and July, testified that thp conditions of the hospital ; were not good, the sinks bad, and discipline lax. At the beginning, he said, he was short of medicines and nppar&ttis for preparing them. _ The regimental hospitals were as bad .off. Requisitions were generally disapproved at camp headquarters. Tlie only complaints he had from really sick m*n in hospitals was the lack of medicines. As far as he knew, no patient was ever neglected to an .extent .to materially reduce his chances : ,of ^recbvcBy., ThV chief trouble ill the. matter ••(& .•':' crowding was the inability to get the quartermaster to issue tents enough. To this was added lack of medicines, lack of trained nurses and too few surgeons. The bringing in of three southern regiments suffering with typhoid fever niul dysentery was responsible for the prevalence of sickness in the camp. Dr. Ward, brigndi; surgeon at Camp Thomas, after testifying to a bad condition of affairs at Chicknmauga, declared that General Hoynton was responsible for the conditions at Cam]) Thomas, because lit- reported that tlie camp was perfect nnd the hospital well run. and it was on his report that tho army was kept there. Col. Turner, of tho First Illinois, said the first three days nt Hiboney his men nearly starved. Dr. Bonn said the water at Camp Thomas was bad, but said otherwise the site was good for a short encampment. He fculd there was a lack of supplies at (Santiago. He thought tho mobilization of troops in southern camps detrimental to the healtli of the soldiers, and instead ot their becoming nccli- Inated, they were, in his opinion, greatly debilitated in Chickntnuuga,.
