Paris, Nov. 2(!.—It IB now known that ipaln will exhaust her time limit, which expires on Monday, before replying to he American offer regarding the Phll- pplne Islands. In the meanwhile the Bpanlarda are canvassing the entire field and exhausting every resource to postpone the inevitable. As cabled to ;he Associated Press on Wednesday, hey could not accept the American ul- Imatum as final without asking If It vere really so. That applied to the Ime limit. Now, the Spaniards apparently doubt the fixedness of the amount he Americana oitered for the Philippines and they sent a communication o the American commissioners, asking f the latter would accept a counter proposal by Spain to cede the Phlllp- >lnes for 1100,000,000. Spain Imagines he Americans might be willing to lope off the great Island of Mindanao from he Philippines and pay Spain $50,000,000 'or what would remain instead of $20,300,000 now offered for the entire archipelago. Will Not Change Ultimatum. Spain will learn In response to such nqulry that Americans employ the word ultimatum to signify ultimate renditions. However strenuously Spain , may seek to increase her money advantage for the cession of the Philippines, she will finally be compelled to enow that the United States' offer means $20,000,000, no more and no less, and that the whole archipelago must pass to the United States for that sum. Spain before giving up or turning away, will also propose some alternative bar- lain of the Carolines or the Canary islands, to be held In the possession of the United States in addition to the Phil- pptne Islands, on condition that Spain be permitted to retain her sovereignty n the Philippines. In other words, Spain would cede certain territory In the Carolines and Canaries ar.d the control of the Philippines by the United States under a nominal Spanish sovereignty and, as a further Inducement, propose that the United States shall pay Spain no money on account of the Philippine Islands. NEGRO SOtDIKRS SHOOT WHITES. Rioters Are Under Arrest, hut Lynching Is Threatened. AnnJston, Ala., Nov. 26,—Great excitement prevails here as a result of the armed conflict between white and ilack soldiers resulting In one death ana several minor casualties. Troops parade the street and have so far man- agtd to preserve order, but a general outbreak among the poulaee la expected at any moment. The trouble was laused by a stret fight early In the afternoon, when a colored soldier was dangerously beaten by white soldiers on Tenth street.

Just about dark the wholesale reprisals began, when squads of the Third Alabama regiment (colored) lay in ambush and commenced shooting at Individual white soldiers passing by. A squad of the provost guard was ordered out, but the negroes opened fire on the approach of the.guards and they were forced to retire. When reinforcements arrived It was found the negroes md disappeared. When the news spread white soldiers and citizens turned out In great numbers, and begged for arms, oafer the armories of the two loczfl military companies were broken Into and every gun and cartridge appropriated. General Colby, who commands the Second brigade, ordered out two companies each of the Third Tennessee and Third Arkansas. They scoured the city and conducted all soldiers not on duty back to their camps. Several arrests of armed negroes have been made, and It Is with the greatest difficulty that the prisoners can be saved from being lynched by the angry mobs. PHOCKST AGAINST EXPANSION.
