portant under discussion. Ceueral Mc
Arthur lias protested to the Secietary

complained that the withdrawal of tho
Ninth infantry might affect the freu
acceptance of tho muiicty proclama
tion already Issued. Cenernl Otis .sus
tained Cenernl McArthur in tho po
sition that the tioops should not lie
withdrawn from the Philippines ami
it was decided that General MacAr
thur's force will not be further drawn
upon to supply tioops for service la
China. This conclusion is considered
vitally necessary at this time as the
Filipinos have had under considera
tion for several weeks tlie general am

.McArthur and General Otis, be follow
ed by efforts on the part of the insur
gent leaders to reorganize their forces
and open hostilities anew.
Plans for sending additional troop
to China, under tentative orders for
the Philippines are still under consid
eration by the Secretary of AVar. Ad
