SETTLE PHILIPPINE QUESTIN Without Warlike Demonstration by the Government Paying Thirty Million Dollars to Spain. WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov. (Special Service to The News.) The impression is growing here that the Philippine question is to ba settled in a very short time, and settled, without any warlike demon- stration on the part of this country, or without interference on the part of any other .nation. The basis of settlement, it is thought here at present, will be the cession of the entire Philippine Archipelago to this country on the payment of a sum estimated at about thirty million of dollars. The sum will be paid because only Luzon can be said to have come from Conquest. This is the view entertained by the best informed politicians here. It is evident that the administration favors a settlement of this kind, but there is an uneasiness among the repub- licans'that the country will not agree to the bargain; hence there may be a change in the mind of the administration, though at present it favors a settlement on the line set forth above.
