NEW YORK, March 10. A special
to tho Sun from Washington says: A
long dlspitch was received tonight
from don. Otis setting forth in detail
tho present situation in tho island of
Luzon. The American lesson, ho says,
has boon vry effective on tho rank and
II lo of the Insurgent army, and he has
no doub' that tho great majority of
the rebels would surrender but for tho
inlluenio of the Filipino leader, who
aro usijg every endeavor to bolster up
tho Insurrection. Tho attitude of the
Filipinos generally, with tho exception
of their leaders, had changed In favor
of a peaceful settlement of the troubles.
In tho opinion of tho American otllccrs,
ho said, the time was now ripe for an
nggresslvo movement, and it was
thought a sharp, rapid campaign to tho
Interior would end the rebellion. The
arrival at Manila today of 1700 regu
lars under Gen. Lawton makes offen
sive operations possible and the opin
ion Is expressed hero tonight that a
forward movement will at onte be be
gun iiy Gen. Otis.

The statement can be repeated
4- on tho authority of tho detail
