Filipino General and Other In surgent Chiefs Surrender to Americans. - ENGAGEMENT IN BATANGAS. A Movement Which May Result la s Gen eral Increase of Wares of Rail road Trainmen. By Telegraph to tbe Momma star Chicago, Dec. 24. At a special meeting of the General Managers1 Association held here to-day, a move ment was started which may result in a general increase in the wages of trainmen, enginemen, firemen and switchmen on all big railroad systems east of! Chicago. The meeting was called at the re quest of the Pennsylvania Company, the causes being the coal shortage in Chicago and other cities, shortage of cars and power and the congested con dition of traffic in general. The coal situation, however, was the moving cause for the meeting, and a discussion regarding it led to a canvass of the en tire situation. -In the opinion of a majority of the general managers, tbe general coiii gcstion is due in a measure to ineffici ency of the service rendered by employes, and this view led to a dis cussion of tbe labor and wages situ ation from a railroad standpoint. Although no formal resolution was passed upon the subject, it was gener ally agreed that a raise in the wages of employes would do much toward stim ulating them to better work, which in turn would help congested conditions as well as tend to prevent them.

Believed That There Will be a Peaceful Settlement of tbe Dispute. BY Teletcrapn to tbe Moinlnz Btar. Washington, Dec. 24. Encourag ing news has reached the State De partment from Buenos Ayres and the officials have renewed confidence that there will be peaceful settlement of the serious dispute between Chili and Argentine. Mr. Lord, United States minister at Buenos Ayres, has report ed by cable that the Argentine gov ernment has concluded not to press the demands upon Chili which threat ' ..a tn iaH to hostilities, but instead has decided to allow the issue to go -1 before the boundary commission, which has for several years been en gaged in the delimitation of the boun dary. Moreover. Mr. Lord reports that while the Argentine minister to Chili has arrived in Buenos Ayres, the Argentine legation at Santiago de Chili has not been closed and conse quently diplomatic relations between the two countries have not been in terrupted as was supposed from the report from our minister in Chili. Negotiations Renewed. Buenos Ayees, Dec. 24. Senor Alcorta, Argentine minister of .lor ' eign affairs, has sent a telegraphic communication to Florenco L. Domin- Suez, the minister of Argentina to freat Britain, in which be informs the latter of the renewal of concilatpry negotiations between Argentina and Chili. The step was taken n -order that Senor Domingces may officially inform the arbitration commission, and other persons interested in the matter, of the new developments in the situation. FIRE AT M'CONN ELLSV ILLE. Almost an Entire Square Wiped Oat. Loss About $75,000. By Teiegrapb to tbe Mormn star. CONNELLSVILLE, PA., Dec. . 24. . Almost an entire square was wiped out by fire here to day. The loss ii conservatively estimated at $75,000. The insurance in many instances does not half cover the loss. The fire last ed from one until five o'clock, and for several hours It looked as if all the dense down town district would be wined out By hard and heroic work thefiremen kept the flames within the confines or one . square, -" " bounded by West Main street, Arch SSSt d Orchard alley. The entire square was owned by the Wilkey es tate, and the buildings were occupied by about thirty tenants, nearly all of whom were burned out. ine heaviest loss is the furniture store of B. P. Wallace, which was entirely de .troyed. This stock was valued at $38,000 and was insured for $12,000. It wasln this store that the fire was started by some children. To-night the firemen are still watching the tire, as they fear the wind that is blowing from the mountains. ' A VlTaman Close OaJl.

For instance Commandante Dhalan, in ordering the ambuscade, gave the following directions to Lieutenant Gonzales: "Separate Jose Buencamio (the President) from the Americans, and with these Americans do as if you were to take them to the general; but when you reach the tall grass, do with them what we are accustomed to do." He finished his directions for tbe mur ders with these words. "You will re ceive five pesos for the soldiers. God keep your life many-years." - - In passing upon the findings in the case of the insurgent com mandante General Chaffee said: "His open appeal to the base instincts I of his soldiers by promising reward for tne execution oi nis muumau com mand, aggravates his offence and marks the accused as one so lost to the better instincts of his race as to pre clude an appeal to clemency." In Dhalan's case and that of Gon o1ab flan Phaffflft annroved the sen tences of death by hanging imposed by the military commission. In that of Clemente de La Cruz, the sergeant who personally directed the murder of the prisoners, he commuted the death sentence to imprisonment for life at hard labor. SITUATION IS VERY SERIOUS. "Lopez Hanged. Manila, Dec. 24. Senor Lopez.who was arrested in Batangas province for treasonable communication with the insurgents, has been hanged. He was a brother of Sixto Lopez, Aguinaldo s European representative,and a wealthy merchant in Manila and Batangas . In 1898, 173 Spanish prisoners were handed over to Senor Lopez, who was to conduct them to a piace oi saioijr. He ordered the entire party to be cut down with bolos. and, it is alleged, as sisted in the slaughter. He is said also to have robbed the dead -bodies. Only thirty of the Spaniards escaped.

Junior Munsey. The Giraffe's Timidity. - A eirafte is verv timid en hearing slight sounds, but is indifferent to loud ones. A writer in The Leisure Hour says: "Noisy sounds, like a man walk ing by with hobnail boots, it does not notice, hut a lady coming in with hard' ly more sound than the rustling of her dress makes it start, with pricked ears and eyes distended. We remember well, after a terrible explosion of gun powder on a barge on the canal, ask ing the keeper of the giraffes of that day how they had taken it, and he said he was surprised how very little notice they took. They jumped to their feet, but almost at once lay down again when they found nothing happened. "But." he added, "if I were at night time to creep along that gallery In my sooUs they would be so scared that I believe they would dash themselves to bits." They fear the lurking foe, and a bing bans scares them less than a faint, rustling sound. They are in that respect very deerlike." The Bloodstone. Bloodstone, which is really green rfifilcptlonv sDotted with Jasner. is ac counted for by the following legend: "At the crucifixion a niece of chalcedony lav at the foot of the cross, and on It dropped the Saviour's blood,f rom which time the stone is said to have borne red spots, which are supposed to in crease and to deepen in color when danger is near. It Is also said to revive the sDirita and to Inspire to great deeds, to check excessive bleeding and last, but not least, to render Its wearer invisible at will. COTTON MARKETS.
