Omaha, Neb., Nov. 3. A special from
North Bend says:
"Robbers locked the Town Marshal In
Jail last night and proceeded to rob a bank.
Marshal Thompson accosted the men four

"He was thus thrown olf Ins guard for a

consequent upon the Luropean concert
when dealing with China. It was not ap

upon negotiations v Idle in progress, but 'je
said he would make an exception in the

"This," he lenuiked, "represents the feel

morale of the Americans, and would have
had ,i correspondingly bad effect upon the

to remain in his office.
Central MacArthur is a better fighllng
man than an executive, and he has clearly
indlcated that as soon an the rainy season
ends he wuuid take lersonal command of
the troops. This action ha received the
emphatic approval of the President, especi
ally in view ot the expectation that Gen
eral Ral'S, who is a splendid executive,
will probably take General Mile-Arthur's
place in Manila.
As stated this morning there has been
talk of ordering General Chalfee to Manila,
and it was stated to-day that Chaffee might
be chief of the military government .vhilo
General MacArthur was in the field. Chaf
fee, like MacArthur, however. Is a. better
soldier than an executive, and when he
reaches the Philippines he is expected to
take and active command.
