Four slaves were offered me last week
for $50. They were owned by a
woman who claims she is a christian.
I went into the woman's house and
chatted about the human flesh on sale
and persuaded her to bring her slaves
out se that I might see them. Three
were boys, ranging in age from 16 to
6. The other was a girl of 12. The
smallest boy had on a shirt which
reached to his waist, the other two
wore coarse pantaloons extending
from the waist to the knees.
The girl's only garment was a strip
of dirty cotton cloth wrapped about
ine into the Philippines, quotes the
prices of Moro slaves in Tawi Tawi at
15 bushels ef rice, and states that be
was offered a girl of 15 for $3. My
investigations are that these prices are
low. Some of the slaves I see are es
timated as high as $20 in gold.

(icucseo was yesterday the scene of
an interesting " game of football le
tween (Jeneseo High school and the
Augustana business college of this
city. The contest was quite even all
through the game, notwithstanding
that Augustana played against great
odds. They entered the game with
little or no practice, anil were out
weighed by folly 15 pounds to the
man. Added to this was the fact that
the grounds were very slippery and
muddy, for which ieneseo was well
prepared by having their understand
ings well shod, in which respect the
great majority of the Augustana Ioys
c;c deficient. In the beginning of
the first half Augustana was rapidly
gaining ground, but was soon held
for downs, ami the ball passed to
Gcneseo. By a lucky fumble, which
resulted in a spectacular end run,
Geneseo succeeded in bringing the
ball almost to their goal line and
soon passed over the line.
In the second hs.!f it looked at times
as if Augustana was going to even up
matters, as the ball freqtientlv passed
from one side to the other." Bat in
this they failed, and by some brilliant
charges another toichdown was se
cured for Geneseo. Thus the score
stood 12 to 0 at the end of the game. :
her waist. I was standing alongside
of her and she reached just to my
shoulders. Toe slave owner thought
I wanted the girl and said "macho
bueno," or very good, and told me
that the little girl should be worth at
least 15, and seemed surprised when
I did not jump at the bargain.
I asked her where the slaves came
from. She replied that they were
Aeto8. or Mindanao negritos,
and in their black skins, thick
noses and sensuous eyes, I could
see traces of African blool. I talked
with the slaves through an inter
preter, but could not get evidence of
their having been ill-used.
Had I bought them I would have
had power of life and death over them
without risk of a criminal investiga
tion. Slavery is common in Min
danao and the Sulu archipelago, and
there is it form of slavery in some
islands further north. Here in the
Snlu archipelago and Mindanao there
are not only debt slaves, but slaves
by birth and by conquest.
UafM Han Number of Slarea.
The Visayans of this island, at
least, have slaves, although it is
against the Spanish law. 1 have met,
while in the vicinity of Mindanao, the
ex presidente of Davao. He is a rich
Visayan who owns a number of slaves.
I have been told that it is common
for a man to purchase children to
bring them up for work about the
Nearly all the savages have slaves
captured in war. It is not uncom
mon to kill the men captives and
make slaves out of the women and
children. In four tribes which in
habit the mountains, slaves are to be
used for human sacritices. These
triles are the Biggbas, Aetas, Guiau
gas and Tagacolas. who live on or
uear the slopes of Mount Apo.
The Chinese merchants usually own
one or more women whom they bare
bought. They do not marry them.
The chief slave owners, however,
are the Moros. They have the right
to slaves by their religion. In the past
they have carried on a great business
in kidnapping men, women and chil
dren and taking them to Borneo for
sale. There are white men still living
who have been slaves captured by the
Moros in their wars with Spaniards.
According to the Moro laws the father
has a right to sell his children. He
can sell his children, he can sell his
wife, and if he gets in debt he sells
himself to pay it.

sioners sent by the president to exam-

According to our treaty anv slave

to nis master, l doubt if this
covers Mindanao, which is now a part
of our country, subject to the 13th
amendment of the constitution.
Spanish Ltwa In Force.
The Spanish laws will continue in
force until congress adopts others.
It was more than ."00 years ago that
Spain decree! that slavery should be
abolished in the Philippines. Yet the
Spaniards held slaves. According to
onr poiicy, wc can not restrain the
Moros as to their treatment of their
slaves. The jurisdiction of our ofli
ccrs extends only to disputes between
Moros and christians, and the dattos
and the sultans are to settle all casas
between the Moros and themselves.
Take a case which came up before
Capt. Dapray on the island of Bongao.
A pretty girl ran into his quarters,
threw herself at his feet and begged
him to protect her from death. She
was an escaped slave of Datto Tan
gong. The datto appeared and de
manded that she be given to him, and
Capt. Dapray had to consent, although
he made the datto promise her life
would be spared. The datto agreed
to bring the girl once a week to his
quarters to show him that she was
still alive. After the second visit the
datto offered the girl to Capt. Dapray
as a present. The captain refused.
She was taken back tu the datto's
establishment and ran away the sec
ond time. &ne was again captured
and shortly afterward disappeared,
the datto saying that he had exiled
her. Whether he killed her or sent
her away it is not known.
As a rule the slaves are well treat
ed. There is no tracking nun with
bloodhounds and little forced labor.
They are more like the feudal ser
vants of the middle ages than like our
former slaves. The slaves cat with
their masters, and in most cases
do not work unless their masters work
with them. It is considered disgrace
ful, though not illegal, fur a man to
sell a slave whom he has raised in the
I'Att of the Religion.
The question of polygamy is con
nected with the Mohammedan religion,
and if the I'nited States attempts to
abolish it we shall have a war on our
hands which will last until the Moros
are wiped out. According to the
koran. every Mohammedan has the
right to four wives. He also has the
right to as many concubines and fe
male slaves as he wishes to take, and,
as a rule, bis number is only limited
by his means.
Ditto Utto is said to have about 60
women in his harem, the sultan of
Suln bas 13 and the saltan of Min
danao has at least 10. Each of the
head Moros has two or more wives.
Some, I am told, vary their number
of wives with the times and the sea
sons. All that a Mohammedan has
to do to get rid of a wife is to say
'I divorce you!" three times, and the
woman must return to her parents
These Mohammedans differ in many
ways from the Mohammedans of the
Mediterranean. Ihey do not pray so
often as their brothers of Turkey and
Arabia, but they believe just as
stronglv. They are not so exclu
4ive as to their women, who
do not hide their faces from the men
They go out unveiled upon the
streets, and in their rude huts there
are no women's quarters.- But that
man who offends a woman outside
his family is subject to a tine of $9
and if the woman so offended be mai
ried the fine is $105.
The woman who is insulted must
complain at once, for if she allows the
matter to rest over night the Moro
law provides that she must pay the
fine. The husband has also the right
to whip his wife, and if she is untrue
to him he can kill her. Divorces are
often brought about by the mutnal
consent of both parties. I have spent
considerable time in trying to ascer
tain what the marriage customs of
the Moros are. I find that the mar
riageable age ranges from 12 to 16
vears and I hat a girl is a verv old
maid at 20.

she begins to bang her hair, shave

(lest ion of price. Tho parent-, of the

f th girl and annouric.rt tntt their
son has fallen in love wuh her. There
is a council, during which the families
chew the bctelnut. which tho party
of the bridegroom have brought with
' hem for the purposo. Ino- price to
be paid is suggested and the council
breiks up. The bride's family usually
tike three davs to CMit'iu-r the pro
position and then the contract is
uade. I ho price varies, if the girl
is pretty and can read the koran she
brings more than otherwise. As a
rule the price is $10 in silver, a water
buffalo worth about $15 and 500 pieces
of rice cake worth 1 cent each. Of
the cash $2 goes to the girl and the
rest to bcr parents, lhe other sup
plies are used for tho wedding feast,
which is paid for by the bridegroom.
Feast on tbe Buffalo.
The buffalo is killed, cut into pieces
and stewed. The rice cakes are spread
out and the friends of the families eat
until all is consumed. Tho only
drinks are coffee and tea. The mar
riage ceremony is performed by the
Mohammedan priest in the house of
tho bride, the couple standing while
he repeats a long prayer from tho
koraa over them. At tbeclose of this
the man is asked if he takes tbis
woman for his wife and ho replies
yes." Then the question is put to
tne woman. Her relatives reply in
the allirmative. These questions and
answers are thrice repeated. The
priest holds the bridegroom in such a
way that his (the priest's) right thumb
rests against that of the bridegroom.
At the close the bridegroom presses the
thumb that has been against that of
he priest upon the forehead of tbe
bride. Next he mixes up a chew of
betel, and, waving it about her
head, throws it down in front of her.
She pretends not to notice it, but one
of her friends picks it up and later on
she chews it in secret.
According to the Moro law, if a
husband remains away from his wife
more than three months she can de
mand a divorce.
The sultan of Sulu the other day
asked whether it wa the same in the
United States, and if the wives of our
soldiers would not all be getting new
husbands on account of their absence
for bo long a time.
