Washington, Feb. 10.?Up to tbe
close of oflico hours to-day General
Oils sent no news to the War Depart'
ment indicating any further conllicts
wlth the natives. He had a few cas?
ualties to resort, these In answer to
Inquiries from anxious friends of In?
dividual soldiers, and he gave notice
to the Department that he had been
obliged to buy a large number of
horses to supply the transportation
needed to meet the large Increase need?
ed owing to the lengthening of the
MOUNTED TROOPS OF CAVALRY.
These horses, so called, tire really the
little native Filipino ponies. Which, it
is said at the Win1 Di-purtnmit, have
been found to bo the best animals
for pack and draft purposes that can
be secured. Some big American horses
have been taken to the islands by th
troops, but they have sickened and
died, and altogether have proven to be
wholly unfit for the climate. On the
other hand. General Otis reports that
he has mounted several troops of cav?
alry on the little native ponies with
MUST HAY DOWN ARMS.
The same state of affairs holds good
with respect to the instruction of Gen?
eral Otis. Again Secretary Alger said
this afternoon that lie had not sent
any instructions since the beginning
Of hostilities, and would semi none.
He fully expects that General Otis will
make m> terms with Aguinaldo while
tin? latter is armed, and that a con?
dition precedent to dealing with him
ul all is the return of the Insurgents
and the surrender ?'f their arms. Cer?
tainly General Oils is not expected to
now take any action that will amount
to a reorganization of the insurgents
iih a foe to be treated with on the ba?
sis of Independent action.
SITUATION AT 1LOILO.
For reasons that they will not di?
vulge ofllclals do not expect the at?
tempt to lie made to land the Ameri?
can troops at lloilo immediately,
though that was the understanding a
day or two ago, based on General
Otis' advices as to his intentions. It
is possible that it has been concluded
to be good policy to allow the natives
in Panay to learn for themselves the
disastrous fate that lias overtaken
Agulnaldo's fores in the neighborhood
of Luzon, hoping that they may bo in?
duced to abate their resistance to Gen?
eral Miller's attempting to land. Tie n
too, as there are considerable foreign
interests In this town, which is sec?
ond only to Manila in the Philllpplnes,
It may be deemed necessary to give
formal notice of the American purpose
to attack the place in order to enable
the proper precautions to be taken.
Even if the attack, look place accord?
ing to the original plan, news of the
result would not reach lu re for two
days, as Hollo is distant Hol? Mlllllla
about a?o miles, and the waters be?
tween are not easy of navigation.
OTIS REPORTS ANOTHER VICTORY
Washington, Feb. 10.?The following
dispatch from General Otis was re?
