Manila, Aug. 1(1. Tho insurgents
have been concentrating for two days
before Angeles. His officially announced
that Col. Smith, with ten companies
of the Twelfth regiment, and two guns
of battery E. First artillery under Lieut.
Koniley, this morning attacked 2500
strongly entrenched insurgents at tho
southern approach to Angeles and drovo

Outbreaks are feared, particularly in
Cebu, where some of the leading men
have gone over to the insurrection.
Many of the wealthy inhabitants are
preparing to leave the island.
Senores Toronto and Mellia, supreme
court justices from Xegros and Cebu,
havo gone thither from Manila to use
their influence against the insurrection.
Tho results of the autonomist govern
ment in Xegros are disappointing. In
surgent bands are operating there as
they did in Cuba, destroying much
plantation property, claims for which
are being presented to General Otis.
The Immbardmeut of Paoto, on the
cost side of Laguna de Day, by the Xapi
dan, jfc. whose commander, Lieutenant
Copp, was under the impression that
tho town had 'been reoccupied by the
insurgents, aroused strong resentment
among the natives of the whole lake
region. It is asserted there that tho of

Mr. liryau closed his speech by a
lengthy discussion of imperialism. Tho
difference, ho said, between a republic
and an empire is this: A republic needs
an army of 25.CD0 for 70,000,003 people.
An empire needs four times as largo an
army when 10,000,000 population is
added. This suits tho young men who
get fat jobs in tho army, but not tho
people who pay the $1500 a year needed
to maintain cacli soldior in the Philip-nines.
