Paris, Nov. l6.~There was no Jolnl resslons ot the peace commissions Monday. Secretary Moore of the United Hates commission received from Secretary Ojeda of the Spanish commission a note tmyJng that the Spanish commissioners had found It Impossible .0 prepare their memoradum for presentation, and asking If the United States commissioners would be Inconvenienced If, owing to the late arrival 'rom Madrid of expected data the Span- ards should request that the next meeting be deferred until Wednesday. Secretary Moore replied that the Amer- can commissioners were quite ready to accommodate the Spaniards In this matter, and session was practically cie- 'errcd until Wednesday. Importance s attached to this delay, It being regarded as Indicating that the Spanish lommlssloners are preparing for a final :tand In these negotiations, and It may now be definitely stated that they will not sign a treaty of peace which yields o Spain no more from the Philippine Blands than has thus far been offered or Indicated by the Americans. • Would Stmpend NcgfBtuitlonB. Should the latter announce that the Jnlted States Is only willing to relm- )urse Spain for her Paclllc expendl- .ures In the Philippine Islands, the Spanish commlsslonerw will reply that heir mission IB finished. Should this occur, It Is possible the Spaniards will llso suggest a suspension of the nego- latlons through the commission and a resumption of negotiations between Madrid and Washington,, This attitude of the Spaniards Is explained by the :act that the members of the Spanish lommlsslon have political alliances and personal responsibilities to constltuen- les and the national creditors of Spain which restrict them to certain lines, vhlch Is as far as the ministry at Madrid cares to go; It is pointed out that f the five Spanish commissioners here signed a treaty yielding the Philippine slands to the United States without essening Spain's debt in an appreciate degree, they could not return home vilh the prospect of any political future jofore them and possibly would be In danger of violence at the hands of mobs. Definite Attitude of Spain. At the next meeting of the commissions the Americans will learn the def- nlte attitude of Spain on any proposition thus far made. The Spaniards, lowever, in this presentation'will not declare all negotiations closed. They vlll Insist that the sovereignty of Spain over the Philippine Islands Is beyond question, but will announce Spain's readiness to yield that sovereignty for an adequate equivalent, and will then nvlte negotiations under the Spanish construction of the protocol. The Amer- can commissioners may then communicate their final attitude to the Span- ards, but the Americans are expected, at a future meeting, to present a carefully prepared conclusion of their position and conditions. Should they be no different from those already presented, the time will then have arrived when Spain will declare herself helpless ;hough steadfast, and will await the next step of the United States, whatever It may be. Thus Spain will be able to say to her creditors that she ias done her utmost and that the Issue must rest between them and the United States. IN ME3IO11Y OF HEROES.

Ashbury Park, N. J., Nov. 15.—A. L. Mnnly, editor of the Wilmlnelon (N. C.) Record, whose office was destroyed by white citizens on Thursday, Is now In Ashbury Park with his brother-in- law, Rev. L. N. Giles. He fled from Wilmington to escape probable lynching at the hands of the mob, which had sworn to have his life. It was through an editorial In The Record that the recent rioting In Wilmington and the attendant loss of life came about. When seen Manly sold that, while he was perfectly willing to tell the story of his troubles as far as himself was concerned, there were some features of the case which he could not make public at present, as the safety of others might be affected. Manly said that the trouble all grew out of the fact that the much-talked-of-edltorlal In The Record had been misquoted by the press of North Carolina, and only parts of It had been reprinted, with editorials tending to InHame the whites of the south. For Political Effect. This, he tald, had been done to try to scare the white voters for political effect. He did not seem to think that the editors of the papers which started the blaze of riot realized the harm which would follow the articles printed In their papers. The editorial which appeared In The Record, Manly said, was called forth by a speech made by Mrs. Felton, before the Agricultural society of Tybee Island, Ga., early in August. During her speech Mrs. Felton said that money which was collected for foreign missions could be spent to a better advantage at home In educating young white girls. She Bald that owing to the carelessness of poor white men of the south their girls are left victims of colored men. Then she spoke, according to Manly's statement, of the low moral standing of the colored race. He says she advocated lynching as the only means of eradicating these evils. I'ortlon of Ilio Killtorlal. Manly's editorial In The Record was a reply to Mrs. Felton's speech. This editorial Inflamed a large portion of North Carolina. Mnnly says he did not Intend to attack any class or race, but simply wrote as he did to defend the defamed colored man. In this editorial Manly said: "We suggest that the whites guard their women more closely, thus giving no opportunity for the human fiend, be he white or black. You leave your goods out of doors and then complain because they are taken away. Poor white men are careless In the matter of protecting their women, especially on farms. They are careless of their conduct toward them, and our experience among the poor white people in the country teaches that the women of that race are not any more particular In the matter of clandestine meetings with colored men than are the white men with colored women. Meetings of this kind go on for some time, until the woman's Infatuation or the man's boldness brings attention to them and the man Is lynched. Were Attractive Negroes. "Every negro lynched Is called a 'big, burly, black brute, 1 when In fact many of those who have thus been dealt with had white men for their fathers, and were not only not black and burly, but sufficiently attractive for white girls of culture and refinement to fall In love with them, as Is well known to all." The very long editorial from which the above Is taken was published on Aug. 18. Manly says that for nearly a week after It was printed nothing was said to him about it by the residents of Wilmington or vicinity, and his relations with them were of the usual friendly nature until the white press took up the matter nearly a week later. From that time until now they have attacked him and his paper In every conceivable way, until at last he was compelled to flee for his life. Lottt Everything Ho Owned. When asked as to the present situation at Wilmington, Manly said that as he had been absent for several days, he would rather not be quoted as express- Ing an opinion on that subject. When asked If he Intended to return to North Carolina he replied that that was another question which he could not answer at present. There were facts connected with that part of the story which might affect others, and he thought It would be best not to say anything as to his future prospects. Manly would not tell how much his lessen were at the hands of the mob. All he would nay was that he had lost everything he owned In the world. He had carried an Insurance on his property, but he said THE EXCEUENCE OF SYRUP OF FIGS is due not only to tho originality and simplicity of the combinution, but also to the care and skill with which It ia manufactured by scientific processes known to the CALIFORNIA FJU Svitur Co. only, and we wish to Impress upon all the importance of purchusiuK the true and original remedy.
