Washington, Nov. 14.- Since President MoKlnley'R return from the went he has been Riving considerable attention to tin 1 preparation of his annual message to congress. Tho principal part of the message will be devoted to a consideration of the future of the Islands which have become HIP properly of the United States as a result of the war. On high authority It can be stated that the president will take the ground that these Islands shall not be a burden, financially or morally, to the United Stales. Ho will recommend the organization of native regiments to garrison the Islands of Cuba, Porto Jllco, the Philippines and Guam, under the command of American ofllcers. He will also recommend that separate tariff RyHtcms shall be provided for these Islands, so as to make them self-support- Ing, He will also strongly favor the building of the Nlcaraguea canal under American auspices. The president will recommend that Porto Rico, the Philippine group, Guam, and Cuba, until an Independent government can be established ihere, shall be treated as colonies, and not as territories, like Alaska. Highly Important Feature. He will suggest that, as the people In these Islands progress In civilization and In their understanding of American Ideas, there may come a time In the future when the United States will be willing cither to annex these territories or establish Independent forms of government therein under the supervision of the American federal government. A highly Important feature of the president's. recommendations will be that sugegst- Ing that separate customs tariff systems be provided for the different Islands. the Philippines being, of course, treated as one group, over 'ill of which the Philippine tat Iff will operate. The president does not believe that It would be wise to establish free trade between the United States and these Islands. He will take the ground that the American producers must not be allowed to suffer as a result of the expansion of American territory, and that they should be protected from the cheaper labor and climatic advantages of these Islands. The president will recommend that the government of these Islands be left, for some years at least, In the hands of military officers. THE I'KACK COMMISSIONS. Itollnf Tlmt tho 8imnlunl» Will Ylolil an Important Step. Washington, Nov. 14.— A special cabinet meeting was held to consider a dlspaleh received from Judge Day at Paris, In which he informed the president that the Spanish commissioners had asked for additional time to prepare their reply to the proposition submitted by tho United States. Although t'.ie iiicsldcnt and his advisors are exceedingly anxious that the negotiations nuld... proceed as rapidly as possible, the request for additional time will be grenled and Ihe Spanish commissioners given until Tuesday to prepare their reply. It Is believed that at the next meet- Ing of the joint commission the Span- lards will yield one Important step, namely, they will at least tacitly, by beginning the argument of the question, recede from their refusal to allow the question of the sovereignty of Spain over the Philippines to be questioned. It this surmise is well founded, then the. two commissions will be brought face. To face with the adjustment of the details of o proposition for the transfer of the Philippines to the United States, sufficiently complex to warrant the expectation that several more sessions of the Joint commission will be required for Its adjustment. Tbo attitude of the Insurgents In the Philippine* has given the administration considerable uneasiness, for It Is feared that If these Insurgents are allowed to continue their hostile activities, there may be protests which we shall be compelled to regard. KXTKA SESSION FOSSIliLK, Chairman IMngloy Tnlk» of tho Work Bo- furo CongruHil. Washington, Nov. 14. — Representative Nelson Dlngley, chairman of the ways and means committee, who Is In the city attending the session of the Anglo- American commission, In an Interview said he believed that It would be necessary to call an extraordinary session of the Fifty-sixth congress to deal with the war lyeues. He thinks that the questions, will he settled satisfactorily. 'I do not believe," he said, "that the remarkable election of a Reubllcan congress in the middle of lleKlnley's administration was won on the question of exi-anslonlsm or Imperialism. Neither party made an Issue of them. The questions resulting from the war with Spain are perplexing «nd difficult, but they will be met and settled In the eame satisfactory manner that all dllll- cult questions are settled by the Republican party. The Fifty-sixth congress will probably bo called to meet soon after the filial adjournment of the present one next March. A great amount of routine work will consume the tlma of the present congress, so It will not have the time to settle those others mutters." _ Schloy I'reiimt* Kopurt. Washington, Nov. 14. — Admiral Schley has presented to the president, the secretary of state and the secretary of war iioples of tho report of the Porto Hlcan evacuation commission. This report contains a recoid of the proceedings of the caiiiml«8lon from day to day, all of the interesting features of which have boen published.

Washington, Nov. 14. — A cable dispatch h«s been received at the war department from General Wade, chalr- nu'.n of the Cuban military commlfiHlun, which says that everything Is progress- Ing very satisfactorily in Cuba, and that the Spaniards are moving troops out as fast as they can secure trancpor*..?, The department Is quite satisfied with the report, and U Is believed that the Spanish troops arc evacuating as ex- pedltlously as It is possible within the means of the Spanish government. Prominent WaHliliigton Lawyer Dead. Washington, Nov. 14. — Colonel Knoch Totten. a prominent lawyer of this city, Is dead, aged G2. He was born In Ohio, but removed to Wisconsin early In life. He served with distinction In the Fifth Wisconsin during the civil war and for thirty years has figured prominently here In important trials before the courts and has frequently appeared be- 'fore the committees of congress.

Chicago, Nov. 14.— The thirty-first anniversary of the execution of Allen, Larkln and O'Hrien, otherwise known 'as the Manchester martyrs, will be observed at Central Music hall on Thanksgiving eve, Wednesday, Nov. 22. Usually the event In Chicago attracts a great audience, and It hu.s been the aim to prepare a most Inviting programme. Tills record, it is hoped, will not only be kept up but surpassed this year. The musical numbers, both vocal and Instrumental, are especially interesting. The mayor of Chicago will attend and the orator of the evening will be tho Hev. F. L. IteynoUlH. The reader of the -address will be Mr. J. J. McManaman, a young lawyer. The exercises will be more or less of a reminder of the Irish rebe'.llon 100 years ago, and It is expected that the Central Music hall will be filled to the doors. Ncbriuildi State Olliferg Are Fusion. Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 14. — Election returns lust night served to remove all doubt of the election of the fusion state ticket, with the probable exception of superintendent of public Instruction, by average pluralities of 2,500. The Republicans have the legislature on Joint ballot and probably bdlh bouses. Fu- slonlst state house ofliclals admit loss of legislature. The contest In many districts was exceedingly close, two members each winning by a single vole. IIU Kxporlencc Was Fatal. Belolt, WIs., Nov. 14. — Andrews, the farm hand who was dragged through the streets of Janesvllle Monday afternoon by a runaway team as a result of having the reins tied about his body, passed away at the hospital without gaining consciousness. The cause of the death wa.s concussion of the brain. The deceased leaves five brothers and one elster. A damage suit may be Instituted as the team of horses was frightened by the city steum roller. KickiicHH In the Klglith Illinois. Springfield, Ills., Nov. 1*. — Advices received In this city from members of the Klghth Illinois volunteers, colored, now in Santiago province, Cuba, state that fully 30 per cent, of the regiment are In hospitals.

Tiiscott, who was accused of the murder of Millionaire Albert 3, Pni'll ten yearn ago. The man Is said by tho olllcers to answer in every detail the description of Tascott, and his close resi-mblunre to the long missing suspect was what caused attention to be attracted to him.

Nov. 14.—The re-null of the Untied States elections came as a surprise and dltupiiolntinont to Hagasta, who had conlldi'iilly expected that tho Republicans would at least have lost control of the house of representatives. The Spanish cabinet Is convinced that the elections, upon which It has been counting to obtain bolter terms at Par- Is, have resulted In nothing that can nld HpanlHh diplomacy. The Intended visit of Kmpcror William In honor oC which Admiral Camara's squadron Is under orders to proceed to Cartagena, now furnishes another straw to clutch at. The queen regent, whose health Is visibly Impaired by the strain of the last eight months, thinks the wisest course to be for the cabinet to Instruct the Spanish peace commissioners frankly to cmicede the American demand of the Philippines and to work honestly and expedltlously to frame a treaty. Ono More Gigantic Itlulf. Sagasta, however, who Is still sparring for time, hopes to succeed in one more gigantic bluff. lie now says that the cabinet requires the authorization of the cortcs before it can consent to abandon the Philippines, and he Is reported to have informed the Spanish commislsoners that they have no mandate to discuss such an eventuality. The marked sympathy for Spain expressed almost unanimously by the German newspapers, coupled with the purchases at Berlin and Frankfort of Spanish exterior and Cuban bonds, the German holdings of which have been quadrupled during the last three months, gives an exaggerated significance to the Intended visit of the German emperor and empress. It is not yet known what the emperor's plans may be on his arrival at Cartagena, Nov. 19, but as soon as the Hohenzol- lern reaches that naval station the Im- r.erial pair will be Invited by an autograph letter from the queen regent to visit Madrid. Fear for the Canarlon. Lord Salisbury's reference to tho American republic as a factor In Asiatic and possibly European diplomacy which might not conduce to the Interests of peace is widely commented upon here as strengthening the prevailing Impression that Germany wishes to Intervene In the Philippines. All but the extreme \Veylerites dread the consequences of a resumption of hostilities by the United States, which they are aware would probably Involve the loss of the Canaries, and this, In spite of the present German lining to the cloud, remains the Irresistible motive that must eventually determine the cabinet to reconsider the instructions that it Is now believed to have sent to the Spanish peace commissioners. SimiilHh Kxtorior Honda. The ministry of finance has in hand a project for the conversion of the Spanish exterior bonds and the funded debts of Cuba and the Philippines, the Idea being to maintain the treasury- guarantees of Philippine bonds and Cuban bonds of the (i .and 0 uer cent, denominations, but to reduce the Interest to :!',i and 3 per cent respectively. This partially accounts for the firmness of Cuban bonds in Paris and Berlin, where speculation in them Is unusually active. IIKK ItKOUEST KKl'TTSED, Mrs. l)r<ijTus Not Allowed to Send Word to tier Hiisbiiiiil. Paris, Nov. 14.—Mmo. Dreyfus, It IB said, applied at the olllce of the colonial minister for permission to send her husband warm clothing for his return homo. Her request was refused on the ground that the government would do whatever was necessary. At the same time the authorities read to her a letter from her husband to the effect that, having for flve months addressed appeals for a revision to General de Boisdcffre without getting any reply, and being wearied and exhausted by his useless appeals, he would write no more to his family or anybody. lie described himself as 111 and dying and "bequeathed to the generosity of my country the care of •• •habilitating my memory." Mine. JM vfus then asked permission to telegi.-j.n her husband the decision of the court of cassation. This request was also refused. Then through a friend she appealed to President Faure, but with no better results. Her counsel will bring the matter before the court of cessation. TIIIUTKKN MlTitiuUtKUS IIANGKW.
