Fen-Picture or Aguinaldo.
Aguinaldo stands about five feet
four inches in height, is slightly
built, and was dressed in a coat and
trousers of darb tussore silk, lie
is a pure Philippine native, though
showing a slight trace of Chinese
origin, of dark complexion, and
much pock-marked. His face is
square and determined, the lower
lip protrudes markedly. On the
whole, a man of pleasant demeanor,
even-tempered, and with strong
character. Slow of speech, and per
haps also of thought, his past career
has half-marked him as a man of
prompt decision and prompter ac
tion. Many people, and among
others Admiral Dewey, were much
puzzled to find so quiet and ap
parently unintelligent and listless
a young man the acknowledged
and undisputed head of so great a
movement. Many thought that he
was a mere puppet in the hands of
stronger men; others that he was a
safe, weak man, bolstered up by
strong conflicting powers on all
sides. But a remarkably prompt
action served to show that Agui
naldo was no puppet. A short time
ago it appears that another of the
insurgent leaders began to secure
a following which bade fair to
shake the supremacy of Aguinaldo.
The president stayed to take no
half measures, attempted no parley
ing; he grasped the nettle firmly,
and, ordering his reputed rival out
into the court-yard, had him shot
on the spot.
As demonstrating the extremely
crude notions, and entire lack of
knowledge of the outside world
which existed before the Spaniards
were defeated, it is interesting to
note that Aguinaldo had apparent
ly no idea what the word "protec
tion" signified, his impression be
ing that the protecting party would
retire to their own country, and
there keep up a special naval and
military force to fight the battles of
the Philippine Islanders should
they get into trouble with other
nations, whilst the protected party
would start an administration of its
own, and work the islands for its
own exclusive benefit. Tt would in
deed be an early installment of the
millennium if protection on these
terms could be secured by those
who require it. Further, in conver
sation, Aguinaldo professed his
complete ignorance of the terms on
which the English exercise juris
diction over the protected states of
the Malay Peninsula, and of how a
denendenev like Tndia is governed,
and canned his itrnorancc of the
outside world bv nskintr whether
Australia was an island, and whe
ther it beloneed to America.
On to-morrow, Sunday, will
again occur one of those notable
processions in Hawaiian history
which gives opportunity for the
testimony of public respect to one
