CONCLUDED PROM YESTERDAY.
HE natives operate few schools;
in fact, I saw but one between
Parmiagua and Bacoor. Tho
Americans, however, are taking
hold of the school question in fairly
good shape in nearly all tho towns we
now hold. At Novaleta they havo made
much progress; fixed up an old tumble
down shack and made it look up by
putting on the needed trimmings, and
last, but not least, an American flag on
T lore are many Chinamen here who
seem to bo more steadily employed
than the natives and they work for very
small wages. We have one in our
kitchen whom we pay $5 American
money per month, and he will soon be
a wealthy ''Cheno" at that rate. We
also board him. In Manila many Chi
namsn work at very hard labor for J50c.
Mexican (equal to 15c. American
money) per day, and board themselves.
We can get a native to work all day for
50c. Mexican (equal to 23c. Amercan)
and he thinks he is well paid.
BISBEE Here at uavite Vlego, a non-commls-
missioned officer from our company is
detailed as marshal and has about
thirty native men working for 50o.
Mexican per day on the roads, etc.
The women work in the rice fields
and in many cases it can be seon that
they do more work than the men. The
men go to church same as the women
and children, but when services are
over they hie themselves to the cock
pit to fight their game roosters, or to
the gambling dens to play in onto. Of
all things common to both countries
the chickens here most nearly resem
ble those found in the United States,
only they breed at all seasons. There is
no winter here nor does the water in
Manila bay ever form (into ice, for if it
did what a time we would have. We
could then use skates, and with fixed
bayonets and going with the wind we
could thrust many a "googoo," lung
ing into them and flattening them so
as to get about f orty-leven per man-
Then as the waters of the bay are salt
we could preserve them in the first
convenient air bole.
Monkeys are to be found in the inte
rior, and all the volunteers have them.
Our men (the regulars) soon tired of
them. I may bring one home but
doubt it, for I don't fanoy them as I
The wells, as a rule, are located near
tho shacks and are invariably left ex
exposed. I have never seen one where
any precaution had been taken to pre
vent poople from walking into it.
Mainly they are cased with a soft rook.
A native will stand and bathe near a
well and see some or all of the water
ruu back into the well from which he
will later drink.
On rare occasious boys are seen with
kites made with a spear on the top and
a lot of cords similar to the cords on a
violin bow. Each boy 11 aneuvers his
kite so as to tear the other boys kite
with the spear point, and when they
.come together it is like a bike smashup.
Mosquitoes! There are enough to
set one wild. They cause us more
trouble than the whole insurgent army.
They are somewhat worse during the
rainy season, but the saints all know
they are bad enough now, and thoy are
called all kinds of pet names. Tho
foliage is always green, and flowers are
to be seen on the bamboo fences by
the roadsides that are in cases well
The mango tree grows to an immense
size. One in the back yarp here is
about one hundred and twenty feet
high and will cover an area o0.90 feet,
and it is not the largest I have seen;
either. Mahogany wood is plentiful
here, and I'll tell a secret. The old
church here at Cavite Viejo is a wreck
from the work of our gunbouts (I won
der why?), and we have the old guard
futigue to carry a few pieces to our
wood pile, and may I tell jou all that
it is equal to the American hickory for
firewood. Yes, I know it is a valuable
wood, but, thon, it doesn't cost us a
cent, so, therefore, it is cheap fuel.
Ae to prices of anything the natives
sell us. Well, wo are oat of luok, as
the soldier expression has it. They
charge us as much as ten prices more
than they charge another native. A
native will buy two mangoes for one
cent Mexican, but thoy charge an
American ten cents Mexican for throe.
I've seen a native woman sell some
small fish for five cents Mexican each,
and when asked "quauto vnle por uno?"
(How much for one?" her answer was
"uuo peseta" (twenty cents Mexican).
And that is the way with most every
thing. Is it to be wondered at that

shucks up in the clouds?

As to I ho intoxicants made here. San
Miguel makes a good beer, but cannot
begin to supply the demand. Here,
only twelve miles from Manila, we can
not get it. Beno, as an intoxicant,
kills many a man in the army here. It
is cheap in price, as ten cents Ameri
can money will buy a quart of it, and
that muoh will make four moderate
drinkers rather unsteady, whereas it
takes about six bottles to satisfy somo
of our old timo soaks.
Tinto and caraman schel are about
the same as beno, only of different
flavors, the last named being the sweet
est. As to tinto, well, if the first fails
to kill, the second surely will; if not
then, double the dose and- say "Ainto
case" (good by). How do I know so
muoh about these drinks may bo tho
burdon of your thoughts. Well, that's
easy to answer, thua: If auy one thinks
a man 'mpst thirty years of age, ground
up in as many different mills as I've
been, and still alive, would not take a
drink of the beverage of the land he
may happen to bo in, such a one is
guilty of a wrong "think."
I have no use for a "soak." but I
don't take a drink today and go to
church tomorrow and sit in an angel's
position, and when called upon to
speak rise and advocate temperance,
and then on the way home stop and
give an order for a half gallon of
whisky, to be marked gasoline and
sent to the house, as I know of one
Presbyterian hypocrite of Cincinnati
We have the Spanish language, the
Filipino language, called "Slagullo,"
also the Chino's (Chinamen), with our
own. You may think it a joke, but I've
heard a conversation where all four
were used. It was between a soldier
and a Chino. And when some of us
Mikes get home and spring some of
the hot ones at you they will put you
to sleep, or if you are asleep they'll
wake you up. So, you see, it's a case
which works both ways.
Now the conversation is not verbal,
only a move or motion, and surely it is
a funny one. As for instance, one
native on one side of the road beckons
for"otro hombre" (other man) on the
other side to come to him. He first
calls him, and then gives bim a sign
about the same as a girl on a morning
street oar to girl friend sitting in her
front yard. In fact the sign is a mo
tion to go farther away. As for myself
I'm far enough away now. But we will
set sail for home some day, and happy
we will be when going to .vard the land
of the free. Missed connection again.
The natives of the countiy, young and
old, all smoke cigarettes. Children
five or six years of age are handed
cigarettes by their frieuds, and women
on the streets, I mean roads, and about
tneir worn with strong oigars in their
mouths. And hs to smokers, whenever
there is a spare moment or a move
from one place to another, the Amer
ican solders, officers and all, seem to
want to smoke, for when our powder is
not smoking we smoke to make up for

Yes, we often see statements in papers
from the States to the effect that the
war will soon be oyer. Such state
ments were published four or five
months before I enlisted at Cincinnati.
A soldier who has been under fire
can tell the difference between the bul
lets which whiz with their singing
sound near his head. A Mauser has
the nicest sound of all, that is if there
is anything nice about any of them,
while a Remington, which is a bullet
with a brass jacket, and a bad thing to
get hit with, has a jumbling rattle-de-bang
get-out-of-the-way sound. It is a
fact that a man has been known to hear
the report of a Remington and tho bul
let coming his way, and the man would
fall flat and hear the death dealer go
over bis head on its wav.

DScranton, Sept. 25. At the head
quarters of -the strike today everybody
was on the alert, confident and ready to
assert that the operators would be glad
to give in before the end of the week.
The miners have received assurances
of sympathy in the form of telegrams
from other branches of organized labor
throughout the country, and many
promises of flnacial succor, although
they refuse to give the sources from
which the latter come.
One of the district organizers told
me yesterday that they had money
enough in the bank to last two years,
but whan I asked him how much would
be required to pay 140,000 miners 50
cents a day for two years he modified
his statement and admitted that the
cash was not yet in hand, but would be
forthcoming as fast as it was needed.
The order of Mr. Dilcher shutting
down what are known as the washeries
is serious. Nearly all the factories
throughout an area of several hundred
square miles in this a-egion burn refuse
coal, what are called "screanings" in
some places and "culm" by the miners.
The waste taken from the mines and
breakers is not of sufficient value to
haul to marketk but it is sold for $1 a
ton to the street car and electric light
companies, the furnaces, foundries and
other manufactories which mm use il
for steaming purposes with forced
draft. Many factories have located in
thiB region solely because of the oppor
tunity to obtain this cheap fuel.

COLLAPSE Of THE BOERS.

LONDON,Sept.25. The collapse of the
Boers resistance is undoubtedly due
as much to diplomacy as to the steady
defeat they have suffered at the bands
of the British. The crood nffloM of
Portugal have been enlisted on behalf
of the establishment of peace, and she
has joined England in putting an end
to the war.

Chicago, Sept. 25. There is not a
big coal dealer in Chicago who does
not expect a long and bitter war in the
hard coal fields. Eventually it mav iu-
volve the bituminous regions.
While this duel between the miner
and the trust is in progress the price of
hard coal will leap possibly each week,
and surely every fortnight.
It has been agreed that each advance
shall be half a dollar a ton. Should
the strike continue until next Junuarj
one may imagine what anthracite coal
will cost him at that timo.

of state. Mr. Adee, as to what the In
tentions of the United States were,
now that this government had been in
formed of the attitude of the powprs
toward the Russian proposal to with
draw from Pekin. It is understood
that M. de Wollant also notified this
government that there had been no
change in the Czar's attitude on this
question, and that his imperial majes
ty's trnops had been ordered to leave
Pekin, and were now so doing.
M. de Wollant's representations were
at once communicated to the president
As Russia carries on her diplomatic
correspondence through her represent
atives orally, the substance of M. de
Wollant's statements were taken down
by a stenographer. No reply could be
made by Mr. Adee until after he had
conferred with the president.
M. Thiebault, the French Charge
d'Affaires. called upon Mr. Adee di
rectly after M. de Wollant left the
state department, and the significance
of these two calls was said to bo that
Russia and France still adhered to their
announced policy of withdrawing from
Pekin. France has followed Russia in
her Chinese policy from the outset,
even going so far as to sound the United
States as to whether or not this gov
ernment would withdraw if France
stood with Rutsia-for- withdrawal.
'It was said later that the president
had directed the state department to
reply to the Inquiries of M. de Wol
lant and M. Thiebault to the effetM that
the United States did not consider the
time expedient to enlarge upon their
declared policy or to announce at thU
time the next step that would be taken
by this government.

Seattlk, Sept. 25. According to
advices brought by the St. Paul,
"Lucky" Buldwin and his party of
prospectors, who recently started on a
secret trip to the Kougrock district,
returned to Nome Sept. G. Baldwin,
when Interviewed, said:
"I think things are coming my j way
now. Out of this new deal, which Is as
yet my secret, I expectto make .one

All the prospectors at Nome, when
the steamer left, were awaiting a tip
on the new strike, to stampede to the
district from which Baldwin brought'
such glowing reports.
