March’s men of the Thirty-third Regi

A majority of the men are ready for

walt, assistant surgeon. They say it is all
guess work as to whether Aguinaldo was
shot. Before the Americans struck So gat
the insurgent chief divided his forces into
parties of ten, following different trails.
The officer shot was perhaps Aguinaldo's
secremiy oi adjutant. The report unions
the natives of the region is that Aguinal
do was wounded in the shoulder.
The papers secured show that nearly all
the presidents installed by the Americans
ill Gen. Young’s territory are treacherous
and have been making regular reports to
Aguinaldo of the dispositions and move
ments of the American troops, and they
have been collecting and forwarding taxes.
The captured papers also prove the dis
loyalty of the native telegraph operators,
whom the Americans retained on the Cay
agan Valley line. When Tirona surren
dered the Filipino forces In that section,
these operators professed loyalty and took
the oath of allegiance. But it is now
shown that they had been sending Agui
naldo copies of important telegrams ex
changed between the American officials.
Letters were also found relating to lnrge
contributions forwarded to Aguinaldo from
Spanish and other foreign business men.

wildly excited tones, denounced as false

Mr. Cannon explained that the Senate
added about $5,000,000 to the original $61,-
000,000 of this bill, and that by this report
the Senate yielded about $1.000,>00, and the
House $4,C00,000. Considerable debate fol
lowed on the various items. The confer

On reconvening over a hundred members
with private bills were hustling about
trying to secure recognition, but Mr.
Lentz, of Ohio, had declared that he would
object to unanimous consent for anything

printing of the Ooeur d’Alene investigation
testimony. None could persuade him to
yield. Figuratively he the House by

Then Mr. Lentz withdrew his objection
against several bills < t minor importance.

was passed, and then Mr. Lentz resumed
his objections, the House again came to a
standstill and recessed until 3 o’clock.
When the House reconvened, Mr. Lentz
still blocked the path of private bi\ls. Sev
eral he let pass, and one offered by a
Democratic member he yielded to, but Mr.
Cushman of Washington immediately ob
jected in retaliation for the Democratic
objection to a bill offered.
At 4 o’clock the House again insisted
upon its disagreement to the Senate
amendments to the naval bill relating to
ocean and lake surveys and the abolition
of the sea course for naval cadets.
Armor Plate Igreement.
Mr. Foes then called the attention of
the House to the fact that the Senate,
after making a protracted struggle, had
practically agreed to the House provision
relative to armor plate. (Applause.)
The only change was a change of ver
biage, making it mandatory upon the
Secretary of the Navy, to erect an armor
plate factory in case he cannot contract
for urmor plate at a nominal cost.
“Is not this a complete change in the
policy of the government. In taking the
limit off the price of armor plale?” ask
ed Mr. Kitchin of North Carolina.
“No limit was ever placed upon the
price of armor,” replied Mr. Foss, "un
til 1897, and owing to the action tof Con
gress for several years, the construction
of ships has been tied up.”
Mr. Kitchin assailed the proposition to
give the Secretary of the Navy carte
blanche to pay w’hat price he pleases for
armor plate. ,
The House concurred In the Senate
amendment, 154 to 96. The bill was then
sent back to conference, and the House
took a recess until 8 o'clock.

When the House reconvened at 8 o’clock

A NATIONAL NEGRO PARTY.
Step* Token in Philadelphia. Look
ing to Organization.
Philadelphia, June 6.—The first steps
looking to the organization of a national
negro party have been taken in this city.
Prominent negroes—bishops, ministers,
editors and lawyers—at a meeting yester
day decided to plade a presidential ticket
,in the field, with negro candidates. The
plan is to organize the party in every state
of the Union and nominate candidates for
state and congressioal offices.
Names mentioned for President include
ex-Judge E. J. Walker of Boston, with
P. B. S. Pinchback, Ex-Lieutenant Gov
ernor of Louisiana, as running mate;
Bishop W. B. Derrick, of New York, with
Prof. Debois as running mate; Bishop
Grant of Illinois with the Rev. J. P.
Sampson as vice president; Bishop Tur,
ner, with Booker T. Washington as vice
president, and Bishop Walters with T. T.
Alla in of Louisiana as vice president.
“The platform,” said H. C. C. Astwood,
after the meeting, “will insist upon the
observance of the constitution of the
United States, the civil and political
rights of every citizen without regard to
race, color or condition; the Monroe doc
trine and opposition to all monopolies,
trusts and rings, and the duty of the gov
ernment to control all public conveyances
such as railroads, etq 1t and all telegraph
and telephone operations, so as not to
burden the people with unneccessary tax
It is expected that the convention will
be called to meet in this city in August.

Party That He Favor*.
Atlanta, June 6.—Bishop M. Turner of
the A. M. E. Church, when informed of
the project to form a national negro polit
ical party, expressed doubt as to any prac
tical results from the organization, if it
is intended to be a political party in the
ordinary sense, for the reason that the
negroes compose a small minority of the
voters. He added:
“I am in favor of a national negro party
if it is intended to secure an appropriation
which will enable the negroes to move to
a place where they can be by themselves.
I take no stock in any movement which
