nro Inflamed oyes, throbbing temples

better pull it out as quickly as possible.
Klllona paid no attention to what his
friends were telling him but kept on In

terrific explosion and the poor native was
thrown out of the water.
When those on shore went out after

WHEELER ON THE FILIPINOS.
Nashville (Tenn.), October 29. The
following letter has been received from
General Jiw Yheeler In the Philippines:
San Rita (island ofLuzon)J September
8, 1809. Ynn Lear Klrkman Aly Dear
Young Cousin: I have now seen much
of the country and the ptople'In that part
of Luzon for about fifteen miles of Manila.
In every town there is n magnificent stone
church and a convent or monastery. The
Insurgents have a great antipathy to the
priesthood or friars, and they have dis
mantled many of the churches. The va
lue of the church, of a monastery, of a
town, seems to be equal, to m:uy cases, to
the value of all the other buildings In the
town. The more I talk to the people the
mote I am convinced that the Insurgents
are actuafd in a measure by a spirit of
communism, nnu.. in ineir taucs meir most
serious objection to the church seems to
be the fact that ecclesiastical organization
owns so much of the property, and one of
tguinaiuo's most earnest uemanus is that
the church p'rOperty be confiscated.
Those friars and priests are chareed with
all sorts of oppressions and misdemeanors,
but It must be remembered that priests
and frLirs. are very numerous, and In so
large a body.there would be every possible
phase of character and disposition. Some
of them are no doubt, oppressors of the
people, exacting In the collection of rentals
trom the land, Indulge themselves In
manv wavs. and lead lives verv different
from what should characterize a life of a
priest. But there are very many good
men among mem.
There Is a eeneral Impression that the
insurgent army Is made up very largely of
people witnour property, ana mat people
who have property desire the Americans
to control so that they can have protection
and feel that their property is secured to
them, but I find that there Is also a fear or
apprehension among some of the wealthy
that If Americans control and give univer
sal suffrage, the power of the wealthy
people would be Uken away and their
hold on property verv much Impaired. I
think that If the wealthy people could be
assured that they would be protected In
their property rights by the Unlted.States
It would haveia very good effect.
Waldorf In Manila.
The Manila Times of Oct. 11 says:
Miss Janet Waldorf, the eminent young

she has been playing a most successful

The chances are that next week Miss
Waldorf will appear for two or three per
tormances at the Teatro Filipino, and It Is
possible that several well known local
amateurs will participate In a grand pre
sentation of ''As you like it." The
chances are also very good of the beautiful
Greek drama "Jngomar" being presented,
thus affording quite a treat to the English
speaking population of Manila.

present. Here Is the committee who had
charge of affairs: T. G. Balientyne, H.
Herbert and W. Horace Wright.
The club room was brilliantly Illumin

joyment all, the more keen.
At about 8:30 o'clock Dr. Murray as
president of the Cricket Club took his
place on the stage and, with a rubber hose
for n gavel, called the smokers to order
nd announced a piano solo by Prof. Sharp
who played so well that he was twice en

play the accompaniments for the various
singers who appeared during the entertain
ment. Songs by W. D. Anderson, Wm.Thomp
son, Oeorge Allen. E. Rodgers, Ayres,
Guy Levingston, Kay and others were
heartily enjoyed. Mr. Thompson sing

Alex. Joel, Clias. van Dyul, Carl Mel
vln, Jack Lawton and one other of the
boston LyrJc Optra Co. sang several hu
morous quartets in a manner tli.it brought
forth great applause. The monkey sjng
was executed exceptionally well.
Prof. Bereer appeared on the scene late
but he made up for lost time. Popular
songs of four nations, with coon songs
mrown in, were piayedone alter the other,
all joining In the chorus. Mr. Mariner's
mandolin music was much enjoyed.
C. F. Fltz Hall sane and Air. Watson
gave a very clever recitation. There were
several omer impromptu numbers.
Durlngjthe latter part of the evening Dr.
Aturray proposed the health of Prince Cu
pid which was drunk while Prof. Berger
played "Hawaii Ponol." Prince Cupid
responded with a few appropriate remarks.
