Washington. Oct. 2 Otis cabled
this morning, g;iviB; an account of
his meeting with the insurgent en
voys, lie said the interview with
Aguinaldo's representatives indicated
that the leaders .were maneuvering
solely to secure recognition of the in
surgent government. Overtures were
rejected, anil the envoys were in
formed the only thing the United
States would recognize was a white
llsg and the grounding of arms.
Mauila. Oct. U. Saturday was an
eventful day with thf northern out
jMists of the" Amerii-i'ii iirmy at An

'J'lie 1'ilipino envoys luid an hour's
conference with (Jeneral Otis yester
day looming. Tliey brousht from
A'uiualtlo a messajre that lie desired
peace, and wished to send a civilian
Voverninental commission to discuss
the question. Ueneral Otis replied
that it was impossible for him to rec
tviiiize Asuinaltlo's government in that
way. They presented a letter from
.-ii:iialt!t as "president of t he-republic."
which was largely a repetition of
his recent appeals for recognition.
Ueiieral Otis informed them that
while lie was willing to correspond
with Aruiitaldo ax general of the in
Ktiruput forces In.- must positively de

the civil government. Another coufer-eii'-e

Peace with Independence Desired.
"We desire peace, but peace with in
dependence and honor," said General
Alejandrino while conversing with a
representative of tbe Associated I'ress.
lie impresses one as dignified anil dis
passionate, and as a keen man of the
world. He was educated in Europo
and designed the entrenchments from
Manila to Tarlac. While reticent con
cerning his mission his conversation
throws an interesting light on the Fili
pino view of the American attitude.
"How long can the Filipino army
and people withstand UIMXJO American
troops?" asked the representative of
the Associated I'ress.
Can Make the War Indefinite
"Fighting in our way we run main
tain a state of war and the necessity
for a large army of occupation in
definitely. You Americans are hold
ing a few miles around Mauila. a nar
row line of railroad to Angeles and a
circle of country around San Fernan
do. I tit you are ignorant of the re
sources of Luzon. We hold the im
mense, rich, productive northern coun
try from which to draw. Our people
contribute the money and food which
maintain our army, and this is done at
a niiniiniini of cost."
SOME COMMENTS ON EXPENSE.
Filipino Soldier Cost Practically Nothing
Makes a Point on the Prisoners.
The general then proceeded: "It is
an interesting question what the cost
-to the American people is of main
taining the American troops iu the
l'hilippines. We do uot, of course,
know the amount, but it must be ex
cessive. We perceive what an Amer
ican soldier requires iu this climate,
on the other hand a Filipino exists
mi th a handful of rice and a pair of
linen trousers. -We do uot have to pay
our soldiers and can practically hold
up their wages as long as we desire.
Kven without our present supply of
arms and ammunition we could keep
your army occupied for years. - With
an exieuse that grows daily how long
will your people sland it? The Fili
pino iHHiple do not wish to continue
the fighting. There is nothing in it
lor us, nor are our salaries large
enough to keep us fighting for money
Then, discussing the question of a
rrn-ognition by the Fnited States of the
so-called Filipiuo government. G'encral
Alejandrino made the following point:
"The freedom of the American prison
ers who have just In-en turned over
to you was decreed by the -Filipino
contrress. Your government has ac
cepted them. It will doubtless accept

survivors of Naval Cadet Woods' par
ty, arrived at Tarlac Wednesday. They
agree in saying that tbe Filipinos all
nay that they are "tired of the war,
hut will fight for indeivendeuee to the
last." The released soldiwrs also say
that the natives threaten, if conquered,
toexterminate the Americans by assas

A War Out of the Oinicully.
One day, as Jock Samson was at
work in the harvest field, he was busy
on the top of his cart loading the
sheaves, and the farmer was below
All at once Jock wondered why no
sheaves were being delivered to him.
and, hearing sounds of puffing and
blowing below him. he looked over the
side of the cart and saw the old farmer
vainly trying to lift the wheel off a
sheaf of corn.
The perspiration was streaming
down his face, and. hearing Jock laugh
ing above him, he looked up and cried:
"What are you laughing at? Come
doon and gie's a lift!"
"Losh. man," says Jock, "can ye no
move forrit the horse?"
"LosU me!" cried the farmer, throw
ing down his hat on the ground in
astonishment at his own stupidity, "I

I must not forget one particular,

long by one or two inches wide, and is
