Prospects of mi extra seesiou of
Cougrpps return with the poBsi
bility of strong opposition to tin
Nicarngun Cuual bill and the
army reorganization measure.
Thjse are about th only rays of
hope offered the advocates of yen
oral Hawaiian legislation. Billr
to extend special laws ate still
American of the Pacific aro uoi
so smhll after all. Tho announce
went that tho Pacific Mail Com
pany has .let the contract for the
construction of two steamers thai
surpass the noted American liners
of the Atlantic is another sign of
the times that f peaks for the pro
gr'ss of i Honolulu. American
commercial power in the Pacific
is to be "no misnomer, and Hawaii
asthe cross road hostelry will reap
benefits the full valui) of which
have nevef boen fully appreciated.
FILllUNCIS MUST NUI1MIT.
Conditions iu the Philippines
ns shown by lute despatches arc
just what might be expected. The
Americau troop3 are continuing
their advanco against tho robelb
and tho insurgent forces are melt
ing like snowballs before this ad
vance. Aguinaldo and his forces
will never be recognized ob any
thing more than rnbols and the
only opening loft for thorn to re
tiro in poce is cotnplote and ftb
ject withdrawal from the field;
they will probably not
bo allowed tho dignity of a
urrdnder, but mint simply
submit and retire to the
was of peaco or take the con
sequences which follow opposition
to American laws.
Tho probablo result is tho re
tiring of nondescript bands of in
surgents to the mountains, aud in
the Philippines the United States
will have the old Indian wars over
again with the added disadvantage
of an unheilthful climate for Am
erican troops to combat. The
driving of insurgents from the
cities and towns is the easiest
part of the program.
With Congress soon to adjourn
iho Provident will 2;bo left to
handle the now possessions as
eoems to him best. There is
nothing in his previous action to
indicato that ho will make a move

London, Feb. 11. A dispatch
to Reuters' Tolegraiu Company
from Manila de-cribiug the cap
ture of Caloocnn, dwells upon the
excellence of tho Americau plans
ami tho precision with which they
were carried out.
The ilef patch Kildi: At 4 p. ra.
tho American ships ceased tiring.
Then tho army tired threo guns,
at an interval of ton seconds
signalling the ndvanco of tho
wholo line, the Kansas regiment
leading through the jungle. The
rebols loft wing was divertod by
Major Boll and a hundred men.
It was lilso clock work. Tbortt
was no hitch anywhere.
Tho rebels, estimated to hovo
numberod ton thousand mon,
wore demoralized by the shells.
Tho Americans advanced in open
order, at 500 yards there was a
halt and then a charge aud tho
rebels stampeded from their
trenches which wero admirably
coustriuitet. Tho AruerieauH re
frained from wasting ammunition
but lushed on without firing
and used their bayonets
mil tho butts of their
rifles. Thero was hoavy slaagh
er. Tho railroad is practically un
injured. Today tho ships are shelling be
f'ho AmericHns will probably
roach Malabon today and Malolos
iu a fortuiuht.

His Imperial Chinese Majesty's
Consul-Uenernl at Havana, arriv
ed in the Coptic on his way to
Manila yesterday. Ho is accom
panied by his sou, and his secre
tary, Loo Ka Luck, who also acts
as his interpreter, and a retinuo
of attendants. Yung Yow comes
from Havana, and is on bis way
to Manila to assumo tho post c5f
Consul-General for China in tho
Philippino islands, a post recent

a consular agency. Tho Consul
Gonoralship of tho Philippines is
now regarged by the Chinese
Government as one of the im
portant foroign missions, those
islands having a Chinese popula
tion of upward of 1,000,000.
Li Yuug Yow comes of an
aristocratio family, his people oo
cupying the rank of To Tai, which
is equivalent to tho reigning
dynasty of a province. Ho is
about 40 years of age, and has
served his Government in many
important diplomatic missions.
Ho was appoiuted Consul-General
at 8au Francisco iu 1891,
serving iu that capacity six con
aeoutive years with such distinc
tion that tbe Imperial Govern
ment delegated him on important
missions to Mexico and Peru. He
also made one trip to Europe in
tho interest of his Government.
Ho went as special envoy for tho
Chiuoso Minister at Washington
to Central and South America
and on teturning here ho resum
ed tho function of this conuulato.
His appointment to the mission
to Cuba was regardod in tho light
of a promotion, though thero aro
only about 40,000 Chinese on tho
island. His appointment to the
Philippines is considered a fur
thor promotion and is attributed
to his exceptional fitness for so
important a post. He was tho
first accredited Consul-Gooeral to
Cuba for his Government, as he

Taking the Advertiser's figures
ns a basis it would appear that the
San Francisco broker some time

Theso shares wero divided into
lots of 5 and sold for 8262 50.
The gain on one share would bo
obviously $125 and on 4800 shares
$000,000. Tho other statomont
that Pollitz mado a profit of $75 a
share and a total gain of $30,000
does not seem to bo correct.
