Baird, who sailed with Farragut and Dewey in the west gulf squadron in 1861, visited the Olympia yesterday. He Unrolled a package and, displaying a faded blue admirers ensign, said to Admiwil Dewey: "Admiral, I. wish .to present to you the first admiral^ flag ever 'broken out' in the navy of this country. That grand old admiral xvhose name and memory all revere first hoisted this ensign upon the good ship Hartford, before New Orleans, and afterwards upon the Franklin, and since it came down from that masthead it has never been whipped by wind or worn by the elements. You, the worthy successor of that great admiral whose tact you so successfully followed a short time ago, I deem the proper person for Farragut's mantle to fall upon." D<nyey was deeply affected and tears were in his eyes as he gazed at the souvenir. It was several moments before he could find his voice. He finally said: "I'll fly it. Ml fly it n-t the masthead. I'll fly it in parades. I'll fly it always, and— and— and when I strike my admiral's flag this will be the ilntf I will strike."

He declared he hiul done all that was possible for the sake of peace. He accepted Chamberlain's own offer of a common inquiry, the thread of negotiations. It was impossible to accede to the dispatch of the 12th. Such a course would have given the land and people into the hands of strangers. As it was, his seven years' proposal would, according to the field cornet books, enfranchise 80,000 persons, which was more than the whole number of old burghers, yet not one has come forward to take it. The outlanders never really wanted the franchise. From the first they refused to go on and the commanders registered themselves as aliens. In conclusion, I asked if there was still a possibility of peace. "No," |hc replied, adding, after a pause, "unless the other side will do something to make peace possible." SLAIN IN BATTl.K.

It was not a tale of shipwreck that, they had to tell, but one of death, suffering and pillage. For fifteen at least of the, Scotsman's passengers perished; all suffered cruelly from cold and privation, and almost the worst horror of all, the men who were supposed to succor and assist those committed to their care in the hour of need, turned on the helpless passengers and with loaded guns and revolvers compelled them to part %vith the few valuables saved. Captain Skrimsbire and his officers were exceptions. For the lionor of the British merchant marine the crime may not be ascribed to the neii engaged iu it. but to a gang of wharf rats and hangers on, picked up on the docks at Liverpool to replace .he usual crew of the Scotsman, which joined the seamen's strike on the other ide.

It is beyond anything I can conceive of ,vhy there should be such an uprising >f the country. I simply did what any laval captain in tho service would have lone, I believe." "Admiral," said the mayor, "no -ongue can ever utter or pen 'write an overestimate of what you did for your country. ' "The city of New York has had made .o commemorate this reception to you, :-he hero of the Spanish- American war, a badge, a facsimile of which they de- >irc 1 should present to you in coineiu- .•ration of the event.'' The mayor, as he said this, handed o^the admiral a diamond and gold re- )lica of the medal struck by the com- nittee. 'That is too beautiful, but as you mve presented it to me I will be very >roud to wear it." CAPPED THE UISWEY CWMAX. Another Grand DemoiiHtrutiun in Honor of tho Hero at Manila.

After the greetings the mayor began his speech presenting the city's loving cup. The mayor said in part: "True dignity and manhood can never be overestimated in the study of the influences which build up or preserve the state. Hero worship, if it be merely a manifestation of full recognition and appreciation of such manhood in the individual leaders in the performance of duty to the state either in war or in peace, is most commendable. To such a hero death itself bows, for he lives in the memory of all titnci In this spirit I shall not'hesitate in this presence to freely express our estimate of your character and achievements. The nation would gladly have its dominion extended over the face of the globe in order that admiring millions of additional fellow citizens might be here to-day to pay homage to you and welcome you back. "Your countrymen avc interested in you and know every detail of v»ur life —your joys »nd your sorrows arc theirs. They have craced your ancestry, your character and your deeds, from the cradle rocked by a loving mother to the Olympia rocked by the rolling waves of the mighty deep." The mayor then rapidly sketched the events of Dewey's life; his early interest iu sea fighting, his service under Farragut in the gulf squadron during the civil war, the fight with the confederate ram Manassas; drew a comparison between Dewey and Farragut. both of whom, through long years of peace, devoted themselves to the study of their profession, so that when the time came when the country needed their services they were able to give splendid service, lie then eulogized his mighty victory in Manila bay, concluding: "From your entry to your departure from Manila bay you were a history maker; and if the old style prevailed of naming the period after him who bore the most illustrious name of any living man, this period would be known as the Dewey age. Solitary in the grandeur of your achievements, you are lifted above all those-who have gone before you." The mayor then in a few words presented the loving cup. Dewey in reply said: "It would be quite impossible for, me tojpupress in words how deeply I am infved by this—all these honors, one after another—that beautiful cup, the freedom of the city, this great and magnificent reception. I cannot say what I want to, but speaking for myself and the gallant, squadron I had the honor to command at Manila, I thank you from the bottom of my heart." "Come here, all of you captains," he continued, addressing the naval captains present. "Captain Lainbertou, of the Olyrnpia," he cried; "Captain Wildes, of the Boston; Captain Raleigh; Captain Dyer, of the Baltimore; Captain Wood, of the Petrel; Captain Walker, of the Concord; these are the men who should be thanked. Without them I coyild have done nothing."

MANILA, Oct.. 1.—The insurgent commission arrived from Angeles last evening and delivered up the fourteen American prisoners, all enlisted men. It is reported from lloilo that the Tagals arrested General Virayan, charging him with being a traitor. Tribal discord is growing. Many rebel soldiers have revolted and many European prisoners are (.'.swiping. The prisoners unanimously praised their treatment. One man said: "We have been given the best the country afforded, fine houses for quarters, servants, good food, plenty of wine and a monthly allowance. Aguinaldo visited us and shook hands.' Three of the boys refused to shake hands with him." Judging from the stories of the prisoners they have been lionixod by the people. They report that live sailors, .survivors of Naval Cadet Wood's party, arrived at Tarlac Wednesday. Though small importance is attached to their judgment, they agree in saying that the Filipinos all say that they are "tired of the war, but will fight for independence to the last." The released soldiers also say that the idea of independence has taken firm hold of the Filipinos and they threaten,, if conquered, to exterminate the Americans by assassination. Aguinaldo seemed popular among all the people, the prisoners said. The country, they say, is full of rich crops. RECEIVE THEIR IVIEPALS. . PCwcy's Men Decorated With Emblem* or Appreciation.
