DODDS A PROBLEM
Renegade Soldier From U. S.
Army Dangerous Datto
of the Malays.
TROOPS TRYING TO GET HIM
Remarkable Tale of Raw Recruit from
Massachusetts Who Deserted to
Advices from the Philippines tell of
government UilBculties because of one
Datto Dodds, erstwhile Private Iodd:,
who was for some ten n:inutes a mem
ber of the Nineteenth United States
Infantry. Until Dodds is dead or paci
fied they say there will be no peace In
the Malay part of the islands, writes
the Washington correspondent of the
Kansas City Star.
Once they were liending ail their ef
forts toward catching and hanging
Private Dodds. Just now they are pa
tiently trying to negotiate with him, or
so the story runs. Dodds was ordinary
enough appearing army material when
a serpent tongued recruiting sergeant
enlisted blm at Boston some years ago,
Shock beaded, dull eyed, bull necked,
deep chested, shambling In his gait,
Dodds attracted no attention on the
transport beyond the small notoriety
of eating more and drinking more awk
wardly than the rest.
But when be and his fellow rookies
landed at Manila the Massachusetts
factory band kept, right on marching
from the end of the gangplank through
Manila ami out toward the violet green
mountains, where lurked the restless
A searching party found him and took
blm back. It was not believed he in
tended to desert, so be was not punish
ed, but wnu sent, with eighty-eight oth
er recruits, to join a battalion of the
Nineteenth Infantry, then stationed in
Cebu. Dodds glanced Into bis tent
and kept on going. Another searching
party looked In vain for him, and it
was supposed he bad been killed by
A little later there was a
nigiu aiiacjc uy natives, aim me voice i
of Dodds was beard urging the enemy j
to meir worn, lime ana again mis oc-
eurred. and Dodds always managed to
Why Dodds joined the insurgents has
never been explained. He may have '
been inoculated before enlistment with ',
the auti-iuiperialistie virus of Edward
Atkinson and other Boston friends of
Aguinuldo, or it might have been some
heritage of Norse pirate blood that
blossomed in his brain under the orien
tal sun. The deeper mystery is how the
untutored raetory liana mastered a
barbaric people and a more barbaric
language in so Short a time. The sol
diers of the Nineteenth rejoiced when
peace fell on Cebu and the insurgents
agreed, as one of their terms, to stir-
render the white renegades and desert-.
ers among them. At last the outraged
infantrymen would get their hands on
Dodds, aud a halter, too. but be was
not among the renegades surrendered.
While the exact movements of Dodds
from this point are a mystery, he Isj
supposed to have lied by bnnca or lor
chn to Mindanao or Sulu. Subsequent
ly he turned up in the household of
Datto Tantung, on Tawl Tawi island,
where he was said to have married a
daughter of that potentate and to have
been initiated by blm and to have been
raised to the rank of postmaster
Wnrf the flnllien.
At any rate. Dodds wore tlie silk
drawers, silver embroidered vests and
arsenal sasli of the Malays, did n little
cautious pirating witli bis adopted na
tion perhaps and was satisfied to bo
separated from civilization and the
cocktail, which, as George Ade says,
follows the flag. Dodds bad the mak
ing of a good Utah Mormon of the last
generation. It seems, because in all
bis wanderings the native institution
which he adopted first was the harem.
And everywhere he was the most
unreconstructed of all the rebels
against bis mother country. In time
the deserter came to acquire some
thing like belligerent right and privi
lege of treating with American author
ity like other dattos.
But the army has never lost Its de
sire to catch Datto Dodds In a fight
where the Oereeness of the onslaught
will make It convenient to overlook
giving quarter. And Datto Dodds re
ciprocates by stirring up the Malays
whenever expeditious and treaties
have calmed them down to something
like peace. Just now he Is kicking up
trouble again. .
Meanwhile this hairy oaf of a New
England factory town, silken clad,
barbarously hung with pearls and
weapons, reigns like a king or a feudal
lord in an "Arabian Nights'" setting,
with the soft southern seas murmuring
about his island and a host of fierce
eyed, brown faced subjects bowing at
bis big feet.

TR. HORNUNG, who is known chiefly in America as the author
of kRaffles,,,, is at present perhaps the most popular writer in
England. This story, "The Rogue's March,'" is a remarkable piece of
work. It hinges upon an absorbing story of mystery, which the reader
will almost certainly fail to fathom until the secret is revealed by the
author in its proper place. It is a story of adventures many, of sacrifice
and faithful love, of an heroic soul wronged, degraded, brutalized and yet
not lost, a story which holds the interest of the reader to the last line and
which he will never forget.
