By llxduslte Wire from The Associated Pre.
Washington, Nov. 1$. The new Tlay
Pauticefote treaty was signed today at
11M o'clock by Secretary Hay for tho
Vnlteil States ami Lord Pnunrefole,
the F.iillsh ambassador, for Grout
This treaty Is intruded to replace the
first Iluy-Pauneefoto tri'aty. That cun
veiitiun was amended so extensively by
tliu 1'nited States senate at Ha last
session that tin? Hritlsh government
declined to ratify It. Within n few
veto, negotiations began afresh be
tween Secretary Hay and Lord
Pauncefote, which have just resulted
In the signature of the new treaty,
drawn with special reference to the
objections found by the senate with
the 11 rut treaty. From a due sense of
the eonrtesy uhic.li must be obserxed
towards the United States senate
wherever a treaty is concerned, the
stale department is stopped from mak
ing public the text of the convention,
and that will remain a secret until the
senate itself shall break the seal of
conlldciice. It Is said at tile state de
partment ' that the various publica
tions which have been made of the nl
kgei text of the treaty are all erron
eous and conjectural, though in view
of the rather free admissions that have
been made of the purposes of the ne
Koliators, it has been possible by the
use of the text of the first treaty to
toiiKlruet one similar in general terms
t the new convention.
The principal point of difference be
ween tlir lew and the failed treaty
i the ...'drawal of Oreat Britain
rum the .joint guarantee of the nou
.rality of the canal, thus !ealii(,- the
ilnited States the solo guarantor. The
excision of the old provision respecting
the rlKht to fortify the eanul leaves
'.hat right by inference optional with
he United States. -Ml commerce of
whatever nationality passing through
the canal will fare alike: then, will be
no discrimination In rates in lavor of
t nlted States shipping.
Replaces Clayton-Buhver Treaty.
Otherwise the new treaty is in scope
similar to last year's treaty. It re
places technically the Clayton-liulwer
treaty, concluded on April I'.i, 1S5D. liy
the terms of that old convention the
United States and tlieat liritain agreed
that neither should f-eek any advantage
in rights of transit acioss the isthmus.
3iy the new convention Great liritain
yields her rights in favor of the United
States, which is thus at liberty to con
struct a canal. Nothing more remains
to be done as far as this treaty is con
cerned befoie the senate meets or In
deed, until the treaty shall have been
ratified, rejected or amended. If it
should be ratified the stale department
will proceed immediately to negotiate
th" treaties with Costa liiea and Nic
aragua for which It already has ar
ranged In protocols pending before the
senate which will permit the canal to
Ik constructed and prescribe the terms
upon which the consent of Nicaragua
and Costa lile.i is ;lven, it uns in
anticipation of th's action, it Is pre
sumed, that the Nlearacuan govern
llli nt only recently denounced the
'rruiy of trade ami commerce with this
United Slates. This treaty contained
sections conveying lights as to canal
construction, wlileh are to bo replaced
by more modern provisions.
There was no particular ceremony
oiineeted with the signing today of
tin- Important convention, Lord
I'auiicel'ote had been Indisposed for
several days past and It was .not ex
pected that the tp.aty could be signed
bfore the ml of the current week.
However, to the surprise of the state
depnrtliK'Ut otllelals, the ambassador
appeared at the department about
noon mid the work of signing tlm
treaty was soon dispatched. The scene
was the historic diplomatic chamber
of the state department, and beside the
principals, Secretary liny and Lord

pal witness at the session was Taylor,
who explained in every detail how they
carried on their counterfeiting work iii
jail. He told how he and Hredell bad

that the Keepers could not see the light
of their lamp as they worked at night.
He told of how they secured the tools
and said that they usually did the
wotk at night. After they had finished
each night ihey would conceal their
tools ia a vails,- ;uul the engraved

New York, Nov. IS. The seventeenth
exhibit of the National Horse Show
Association opened this morning at
Jlndlson Square CJardeii under auspices
and conditions that promise to make
it one of the most brilliant and suc
cessful shows in the career of the or
ganisation. The big amphitheatre,
with Its familiar arena of taubark, in
tho centre of which stood the judges'
stand, its festoons of orange and black
and other customary horse show limp
ings, presented precisely tho same
scene that lovers of the horse look
forward to each year with the same,
If not an increasing, degree of inter
est and enthusiasm.
There was but a small gathering of
horsemen present when the call of the
bugle at It o'clock sounded the formal
opening of the function, but within :i
minute the tanbark oval presented n
scene that did good to the hearts of
those present, to witness it. In through
the gates poured the stars of the mng
nlliennt collection of animals now as
sembled at the Oarden, the perfectly
groomed and mettlesome beauties
seeming to feel that for the present
week at least they were to be the ob
served of all obsrvers. As they cir
cled about In an endless procession,
led or guided by their grooms, the pic
ture was a thrilling one. High step
ping hackneys and other breeds of
harness horses, with arched necks, dis
tended nostrils, disdainful eyes and
glistening coats spurned the tanbark,
as though Impatient at the restraining
hands of their grooms; trotters, thor
oughbreds, nadille horses, jumpers,
polo and harness ponies mingled ai'nl
commingled in the ring, which re
sounded with their neighing and tliu
calls of the grooms anil handlers, while
at tho Fourth avenue end of the build
ing the hoofs of many others pounded
and thundered upon the board flooring
as they came up from their stalls to
join the prancing throng in the ring.
It was an inspiring sight, as is always
the Inaugural parade of high-priced
horsellesh at the annual Horse Show.
As the classes judged this morning
were principally saddle horses, hunters,
roadsters and thoroughbreds, the spei -tutors
present this forenoon was large

Francesco Brganza, Will Be Pun
ished for the Wanton Murder of
Helpless Spanish Prisoners.
By Kw-l-i-iic W'iif from The Associated l'ifss.
Washington, Nov. IS. The records of
a score or more of court martial trials
of Filipinos charged with murder and
othui crimes have been received at
the war department from the Philip
pines. Probably the most interesting
case is that of Francesco Brganza, mp
jor in the insurgent army, who ordered
the massacre of 103 Spanish prisoners
in February of 19ou and who now has
been sentenced to death for his crime,
lieneral Chaffee made :m unusually
long review of this case, characterizing
the wholesale destruction of life as
"the most barbarous mid revolting
mass-acre of helpless prisoners known
to the modern history of war."
He calls attention to the fuel that the
chiefs of the Insurrection did their ut
most to prevent the I'nlted States from
fulfilling Its obligation to employ its
best ell'orts to return the Spanish pris
oners In the hands of tliu Filipinos
lo Spain. It was upon the approach
of a detachment of American troops
that this Filipino olllccr ordered tho
massacre of helpless Spuniurds in his
charge. "In what manner this cruel
policy could serve the cause of the in
surrection," says (leneral Chaffee,
"passes ordinary comprehension." Tho
records give full details of the horrors
of the killings.

to Morguntown, and one to Sabrcc, and
that they are all dead, having been shot
while attacking the mines. Tills re

In the battle of yesterday morning til

Cases of Tetanus in Camden, N. J.,
Have Aroused the City Compul
sory Vaccination Rescinded,
Dy I'xrltulve Wlr.- from The A-t-odalcd I'rcsi,
Philadelphia, Nov. IS. Tlie alarm
that has been caused by the nine cases
of tetanus following vaccination in
Camden, N. J has aroused the city
ofllcials there to take olllclal action in
the matter, The board of health anil
the board of education each held meet
ings today. The former decided to re
Mucsl physicians to cease vaccinating
persons until nn investigation as to tho
cause of the lockjaw cases has been
made, and the latter rescinded the or
der of compulsory vaccination of
school children. Of the nine cases of
tetanus so far reported, seven of the
victims have died und the other two
are still in si. dangerous condition.
The board of health appointed a.
committee of three to act in conjunc
tion with the county physician and
make a complete Investigation of the
Dr. 11. H. Davis, president of thu
board, in stating the purpose of the
call, said he did not believe that vac
cination was the direct, cause of te
tanus, but the city was thoroughly
aroused and the people were looking-
to the board of health for some action.
He therefore believed something
should be done.
There have been several eases of
tetanus following vaccination reported
in Philadelphia, but no olllcial action
has been taken. The question of com
pulsory vaccination of school children
and teachers has been taken to the
courts and resulted in a verdict in
favor of vaccination. The case was
that of a girl's high school teacher,
who refused to be vaccinated. She
was suspended by the board of edu
cation and she carried her case to
court. The board was sustained and
the teacher was dismissed from the
services of the city. She took an ap
peal to the Superior court today.
Coroner Dtigan. of this city, has
promised ihe Anil-Vaccination society
of America lo make a thorough inves
tigation of the death of Joseph floldle.

John P. ntriiniiiuns, Depuly,
For some time the city health depart
ment has been making unll-toxin for
use in dlulitheiia cases. This was
distributed among practicing physi
cians throughout the city free ' of
charge and used in the city institutions
quite generally. Ia many eases it is
said to have sax'ed lives. The serum
was obtained from horses that are said
to have contracted tetanus.
After rendering his verdict, Coroner
"For the present I have done all that
I can do. I am not prepared to say I
am through with the case, but, so far
as I know now, there is nothing more
for mo to do."
The coroner's verdict is based upon
tho testimony of physicians who at
tended the lockjaw cases, the inquest
and tho leport of the bacteriologists
employed by the city to make tests of
the infected serum and ascertain the
responsibility for it.
When informed of the nature of Hie
coroner's verdict. Dr. Atmand Ravold,
city bacteriologist, said:
"I repeat my previous assertion that
none of the serum marked September
no was distributed to uuy one or under
any label. I poured the entire drawing
into the sink on October 11, as both
Mr. Taylor and X, who was with me in
the olllce at the time, teslttled."
The lindlng of the committee of bac
terologlsts were presented hi a briefer
form to the coroner. The conclusions
of this report were given as follows:
"The most important result we have
arrived at Is the positive demonstra
tion that llio toxin serum dated Au
gust LM mid that dated September 30
are identical. From this we conclude
that the serum of September Si wus
issued without having been tested by
the proper methods, and that a part of
It was tilled into bottles bearing the
dale of August 21 or was furnished
xtith labels having previously been
stamped with this date.
"From the facts staled, we aiv
forced to conclude that the diphtheria
anti-toxin prepmed by the city health
department had been Issued before it
was possible to have obtained results
from absolutely necessary tests. Had
these tests been performed, the re
sults upon auhuals would have been
such that the scrum would not have
been dispensed and the cases of te
tanus forming tho basis of thl.i report
could not have resulted."
