Prof. Dean C. Woroester and Private Secretarles Dr. P. L. öherman and Garvín Denby, left at 11 :35 o'clock last night over the Cauadiau Pacific for Toronto, where they take the train tomorrow for Tacoma, Wash., on thpir way to the Philippines. They will be joined at Toronto by President Schuman, of Coruell University, who, like Prof. Worcester, is one of the three civil members of the commission to the Philippines. Col. Denby, the other member of the commission, will go in about two weeks, as soon as he can get through his duties with the war investigating commission. A special car has been provided for them by the Canadian Pacific, and the party will number eight or nine, including the three private secretaries of the commissioners, two stenographers and an officer of subsistence. They sail from Seattle next Monday and expect to arrive in Manila about March 1, after being met by oue of Dewey's vessels at Hong Kong and taken on a short cruise with stops in Japan. At Manila, Admiral Dewey and Gen. Otis will join the commission when it sits as a general body. Most of the work of the civilian members will be done independently, however. Prof. Worcester is a discreet and qniet man, auyway, and he is doubly so nowadays, Questions were put to him last night with no avail. He has spoken before in favor of keeping the Philippines, but just now he is carefally refusing to give any official opinión ou the subject of any intimation that he will act ou that private opinión.
