TilK admirers of Admiral Dewey in

him with a lieautifnl loving cup. with

very applicable today: 'The United
States ought not to indulge in a per
suasion, that, contrary to the order of
human events, thev will forever keep
at a distance those painful appeals to
arms with which the history of every
nation abounds. There is a rank due
to the United States among nations
which will be withheld, if not abso
lutely lost, by the reputation of weak
ness. If we desire to avoid insult we
must be able to repel it: if we desire
to secure peace one of the most pow
erful instruments of our prosperity
it must be Known that we are at all
times ready for war.'" In the light of
recent events this declaration is pro
phetic and it still holds good.

dispute with Gen. Otis, who wanted
to sidetrack the veteran tighter bv
sending him to some obscure post in
the southern islands. Gen. Wheeler
now declares that he will apply for
ermissio!i to return to the united
States soon unless there is some
change in the management of affairs
in the Philippines. An .association of
natives stvling itself 'The Filipino
Liberation society,' has applied for
H?riuission to organize in Manila with
Gen. Otis as the president. The gen
eral iias declined to pledge himself in
the matter, but thought it might be

WCHOR' 8TOMACIUI, best for
eeived within the American lines,
several of the rebel colonels and two
of Aguinaldo's brigadiers intend to al
low themselves to be captured when
the United States troops attack Tarlac
because they are tired of retreating.
The World correspondent his the
names of these discontented Filipino
ollicfcrs, but to publish them would
betray them to the vengeance of
Lastoa InprriMd With Filipino.
In the current number of the Con
gregationalism lioston. Rev. -Peter
Mac Jueen, who has been in the
Philippines for the past year in ser
vice with the army, quotes Maj. Gen.
Henry W. Lawton as saying:
The Filipinos are a verv tine set of
soldiers. They are far better than the
Indians. The latter never tight unless
they have the absolute advantage.
The Tagals are what I call a civilized
race. They are good mechanics, im
itative tbejr manufacture every
thing. They have arsenals and cai-
tridge factories and powder mills.
They can manufacture everything they
need. There is a rude arm they are
"ettinir the knack of making. Tating
everything into consideration, the few
facilities they have, the many draw
backs, they are a very ingenious and
artistic race. And taking into ac
count the disadvantages they have to
tight against in arms, equipment, and
military discipline, without artillery,
short of ammunition", powder inferior,
shells reloaded until they are defec
tive, inferior in every particular
of equipment and supplies, they are
the uravest men I ever seen.
The Filipinos are not military by
nature. They are rather domestic in
tastes and habits, peace loving, and
industrious. Nine-teuths of the peo
ple of the islands will strongly favor
peace, even at the expense of some
of their theories, wishes and hopes. I
believe that with a liberal govern
ment, such as the United States can
and will establish, thev will IM5 a
peaceable, thrifty, happy people. 1
believe that it was a great misfortune
that we were not able to give them a
chance to sample our government be
fore hostilities openeJ. i he only
thin"- we have to fear is from
ambitious youths, who want to obtain
control for linancial reasons, that thev
may practice what the Spanish have
Among the rilipinos there are
many cultured people who would or
nament society anywhere in the world
ladies who have studied and trav
eled, nun who have a good education
and a tine brain. Take them as
class, there can as many of them read
and write as the inhabitants in manv
places in America. As for their
treachery, you would not have to
come so far as this to find that.
There is plenty of it in North Ameri
ca. All natious arc treacherous more
or less. Some men and nations have
treachery trained out of them more
than others. What we want is to
stop this accursed war. It is time for
diplomacy, line for mutual .under
standing. These men are indomita
ble. At Kacoor bridge they waited
till the Americans brought their can
uonto within 35 yards of their
trenches. Such men have the right
to lie heard. All they want is a little
justice. I established civil govern
ment at Uelinag, with the govern
ment entirely in the hands of the
natives. It worked to perfection. All
these people need for self-government
is the protection of our troops till
affairs have quieted, ana then they
will, I have no doubt, advance as rap
idly as the Japanese, perhaps more
rapidly. I am very well impressed
with the Filipinos."
Catarrh Cannot be Cored
with local applications, as thev can
not reach the seat of the disease. Ca
tarrh is a blood or constitutional dis
ease, and in order to cure it vou must
take internal remedies. Hall's Ca
tarrh Cure is taken internally, atid
acts directly on the blood and mucous
surfaces. Hall's Catarrh Cure is not
quack medicine. It was prescribed
by one of the best physicians in this
country for years, and is a regular
prescription. It is composed of the
i?st tcnics known, combined with the
best blood purifiers, acting directly on
the mucous surfaces. The perfect
combination of the two ingredients is
what produces such wonderful results
in curing catarrh. Send for testimo

It is almost like coffee, but the effects
are just the opposite. Coffee upsets

THAT FAMOUS ROUHP piH.
The round robin protest of the American newspaper corres
pondents in Manila of recent date has been and is being ignored
by the imperialistic press, in hopes that it would be quickly for
gotten and lost sight of, but it will not down. Lest some may
have forgotten it, it is reproduced:
The undersigned, being all staff correspondents of American
newspapers stationed in Manila, unite in the following state
ment: We believe that, owing to official dispatches from Manila
made public in Washington, the people of the United States have
not received a correct impression of the situation in the Philip
pines, but that these dispatch'es have presented an ultra-optimis-tie
view that is not shared by the general oflicers in the field.
We lclieve the dispatches incorrectly represent the existing
conditions among the Filipinos in respect to dissension aud
demoralization resulting from the American campaign and to
the briirawd character of their army.
We believe the dispatches err in the declaration that -the
situation is well in hand,' and in the assumption that the insur
rection can be speedily ended without a greatly increased force.
"We think the tenacity of the Filipino purpose has been
underestimated, and that the statements are unfounded that vol
unteers are willing to engage in further service.
The censorship has compelled us to participate in this mis
representation by exercising or altering oncontroverted state
ments of facts on the plea, as Gen. Otis stated, that 'they would
alarm the people at home' or 'have the people of the United
States by the ears.'
"Specilications: Prohibition of reports, suppression of full
reports of lield operations in the eveut of failure, numbers of
heat prostrations in the lield, systematic minimization of naval
operations, and suppression of complete reports of the situation.
