GEN. OTIS' SEW MOVEMENT."
Caatemplatea a Fraat sad Raar At
ucb la Force oa the Keaela
Washington, April 25. Information
received at the war department indi
cates that Oen. Otis is about to exe
' cute another important movement, the
. initial features of which are shown by
' yesterday's press advices from Manila.
; The objective point is the insurgent
I town of Calumpit, being- about eight
miles northwest of Maiolos. It wa
here that the insurgents concentrated
after being driven out of their capital,
setting up a new capital, and making
it the base of their operations,
j Two Diatiact Operation.
In moving on this stronghold. Gen.
Otis proposes to conduct two distinct
operations. The first one, under Maj.
i Gen. MacArthur, has for its purpose
pushing straight forward from Maio
los along the railroad and striking at
Calumpit from the south. The second
one is under Maj. Gen. Lawton, who,
with his riving column, is moving far
around to the northeast, to the large
town of Norzagay, from which point
he will turn abruptly west towards
, Calumpit. This last move will take
about ten days, and military strate
gists look upon it as another effort to
lhar.k the insurgents by getting behind
them at Calumpit, similar to the flank
movement which Gen. MacArthur at
tempted to execute at Malabon.
Calompit the Objective Point.
This double operation makes Calura
: pit the center for the next few days
while attention will be divided between
Mac Arthur's column advancing from
Maiolos and Lawton's column on its
ten cays" march by Norzagay. Mac
Arthur has only a short distance to
