Worst ."May In France.
Paris, June 2.—Parisians were scared
recently. At 8 o'clock darkness came

over the city. Torrents of rain and
hail fell. People had not recovered
from the Martinique sensation and
thought the end of the world had come.

attempt to smuggle meat out of the
yards, but the wholesale and retail
butchers who usually drive their own
wagons and take out loads of pro
rissuns, have been forbidden to do so.
lu Wellington to Correct Report! In Clr-
Washington. June 2.—General 1-ilipc
llueucainino, of Manila, formerly Ag-
uinaldo's secretary of war, called on
the president in company with Secre-
tary Root. General Rueneainino was
taken prisoner by the United States
troops at the time Aguinaldo's mother
was captured, and since that time has
been at the head of the federal Filipino
party. He told the president that his
mission to Washington was to correct
some of the false reports that have been
put in circulation with a view to dis-
crediting the work of both the civil
government and .Judge Taft and the
army. The civil government, he told
the president, was doing a really won-
derful work for good in the islands,
and it had been ably seconded by the
army. The stories of cruelties perpe-
trated by our soldiers, he said, were
either wholly untrue or greatly exag-
gerated. The army has conducted it-
self in a way to elicit praise from all
right thinking Filipinos, and this, too
in the face of the greatest temptations
and provocations. Judge Taft's com-
mission had the entire confidence of
all rightly disposed natives, he said,
and it was general Buencainino's hope
that Judge Taft might be induced to
remain an indefinite time at the head
of the civil government. The Filipinos,
he said, love Judge Taft, for he has
never once deceived them, and they
know him to be their friend.
