presumably just before the last mall left
the islands for the United States.
Tho American proclamation was of a
pacific character, but warned the natives
that thej- had nothing to expect from con
tinued opposition to the American occupa
tion. It promised free transportation home
to all insurgents who surrendered their
arms .ana directed the confiscation or all
money nnd hemp belonging to the Insurgent
Government. The natives were notified that
tho American soldiers were expected to pay
for everj thing they obtained from the Fili
pinos In the waj- of food and supplies, and
requested the natives to report anj case of
looting or extortion to the nearest military
The Filipino proclamation issued in reply
to this announced that for a period of ten
daj-s amnesty would be extended to all
Filipino Fples In the employ of the Ameri
can forces ir thej- presented themselves to
the Insurgent military or civil authorities.
A single exception was toade in the case of
one Slarcello Ablnsay, who waa denounced
as an outlaw beyond the pale, and a re
ward was offered for his apprehension,
dead or alive, while the death penalty was
pronounced against any one found In his
tumpany an me time or nia capture.
The proclamation further declared that
all the threats of Americans of pursuing
tho insurgents to the hills were Idle, as the
American forces were short of food and
ammunition, and had received no re-enforcements
for many months.
