by One nf General Miles' Stair.
Llontcnnut Colonel Arthur S. Wagner,
assistant adjutant goucral, formerly
ohiof of tho bureau of military informa
tion of tlio war department, rotnrncd
to Washington recently from Ponce,
Porto Rico, whero ho has been with tho
staff of Genoral Miles. From tho timo
ho landed with Milos' army near Ponce,
Porto Rica until ho loft tho island,
Oolonol Wagner said, tho heartiness
with whioh the mass of Porto Rlcans
wolcomod tho advent of tho American
troops was an impressive fact.
"Tho manner in whioh tho Porto
Rfcans welcomed the army with bulimi
as, cocoannts, bouquets and cigars
seems amusing hero," ho said, "but it
was ovideiit to us in Porto Rico that
tho offoriiifrg wero sinoore tributes and
not indicative of a floklo tomporamont
among tho 'people. When ono realizes
tho fact that tboy have boon obliged to
pay n tax of1 $8 on a barrel of flour,
making tho prico $35, Porto Ricau
money, or $17 in United Statos curren
cy, it is 6t hard to bcllovo that they
are glad to ho relieved from Spanish op
pression. Two or thrco mayors of towns
in signing papers of nllegiauco volun
tarily added "U. S. A." to tho name
of tho town and of tho island, and thoy
seemed proud of it too. When I was ill
with malarial fever, a nativo physician,
remarkably well educated and cultured,
attended mo. Uo rcinnrkod ono day, ns
ho used n physician's thermometer, that
ho had nothing but n coutlgrado ecnlo,
but sinco ho had becomo an American
oltizcu ho mustgctaFuhrenhoit. When
I got woll, I asked him for ray bill, but
ho deollncd auy compensation for his
services, assuring mo that ho was glad
to do anything for American officers.
"A housowhero I had lodgings whllo
in Ponco was tho rosidenco of a very in
telligent native lady and hor daughter.
Tho lady talked vory enthusiastically
about tho prospects of American sov
ereignty in Porto Rico, and her (laugh
ter discussed tho evils of Spanish rulo
in the island iu a way whioh showed
that sho had a very good idea of tho
former government nud its effect upon
tho oppressed peoplo of Porto Rico.
These incidents aro a few of tho many
which came to my uotico during Gen
eral Miles' campaign, and I rouched the
gratifying conclusion that Porto Rico
would bo a very dcslrablo possession
for tho united States, and that tho peo
plo generally would bo good citizens.
Tho most inferior part of tho nativo
population is very inferior Indeed, hut
