PRESIDENT TAFT EXPLAINS TO NATIVES THE PLAN PROPOSED BY THE UNITED STATES—ATTEMPTS TO ALLEVIATE THE POVERTY STRICKEN CONDITIONS OF THE PEOPLE. <1 (Correspondence of Associated Press.) Palanoga, Island of Masbate, March 8. — The ravages of rinderpest has left this island in a deplorable condition, as the United States Philippine commission learned when they arrived yesterday for the purpose of organizing a provin cial government of three islands of Mas bate, Ticao and Burias. The chief industry of Masbate has al ways been the raising of beef cattle, and in the Spanish days Manila derived her supply of meat from that island. Within the last few months practically all the cattle and caribao on the entire island have been swept away by the pest. When the troops of Col Hare's district came to ooupy the town of Pa lanoga, eight months ago, the inhab itants tied after burning most of the houses. The little place of about 800 population is recovering very slowlv from these disasters and more so as all the people are famished on account of the cattle misfortunes, (here is to date not a public school in the three islands. A new ont is being built at Palanoga, however, and American teachers will soon he in charge. Delegations came to the commission's session from all parts of Masbate, a few i from Ticao and none from the large but rather barren island of Burias. The men appeared to he fairly intelligent, ac cording to their comparative isolation, I but were rather hopeless about any ; prospect of immediate improvement in their business conditions. The only in surgents remaining in these islands are a few detached bands of wandering lu drones and a federal party branch, re cently organized. President Taft's Address. President Taft, on behalf of the repre sentatives of the United States govern ment, made an explanatory address, which, except in his references to the poverty of Masbate. was similar to those made at all points visited. Bonifacio Serrano, candidate for gov i ernor, addressed the commission, saying that although there was plenty of land in Masbate, it was not sufficiently cul tivated to be able to meet the necessities of tlie proposed provincial government. He declared that if the people were i taxed on the lands now, or shortly, they would fail to raise money. He said: "The owners of the land only raise I sweet potatoes enough to eae, and there j are some few rice paddies," Judge Taft asked; "Do not the private lands have val i ues? What is good cattle land worth?" Serrano answered: "Good land is worth about three pesos per hectare. A fourth or fifth of the ' land of this island is private holdings, mostly pasture land. There is little pri vate woodland and very little cocoanut ! I LETTER LIST.

Hesondlng to questions, Serrano said: "Before the pest, cattle were the standard product of the islands, $4000 to $6000 worth being shipped annually. A tax was levied In the Spanish .lime on each head shipped to Manila; also on shipments of copra. The average Value of cattle placed on board was about $20 Mexican money. Three-fourths- of the cattle are now dead and the rest affected." AH the testimony on the subject of men's wages placed them at 25 50 cents, Mexican money, per day and food. Policemen received $4 to $5 Mexican j)ey, month. Responding to questions, Serrano sa'id: that his people did not expect to attain their former condition of prosperity for ten years. He acknowledged that the timber was a considerable asset and could he exported at good prices; also that cocoanut trees and tobacco grew j fairly well, but, he said, these had heen i planted hut little. Mineral Wealth of Mnsbate. The alleged mineral wealth of Mas hate had never really heen explored, al though a few Englishmen were mining for gold in the northern part. The presidents of all the towns repre sented addressed the commission, saying the capital should he fixed at Palanoga. The commissioners questioned whether Burias ought not to he annexed to a southern Luzon province, but Masbate and Tacno objected, contending ihat the trade of Burias, though small, was with the islands to the south of her, and it | was to the interests of Burias to he j joined to other smaller islands. It was j consequently so ordered. j After a long private conference of the ; commissioners, President Taft announc- | ed that there had been considererable j difficulty in adjusting some of the pro- ' visions of the general provincial bill to this province, on aeount of the Condi tions of its diminishing revenue. A re^ turn of prosperity, however, would latef justify a new arrangement. The expense of salaries of all the provinces hereto fore organized were upward of $80001 but in Masbate they will he made baljjt that amount. The capital of the prov. ince was located at Palanoga, Serranf was appointed governor and GeorgeôLanL ders of New York, a soldier, superVlSotJ at salaries of $730 each. Lieut. Charley Snyder of the Seventh infantry wks.'ap» pointed treasurer with a salary of MßOO. In the Interest of economy the.lpovr eminent will endeavor to perforOPthb secretaries' duties, and the fiseaf"gov ernor of the province of Morong was required to also perform similar duties for Masbate for $200 extra compensation and expenses. A committee was ap pointed to reorganize the municipalities. Hntphevts-'ir, Mrs K Hause, Kingçts^_ , Holden, E B Half, Sampson *.-* Hilliard, Charity Haiglit, Albert D HqJUlen, Helen Harrington.
