(By Associated Press.) Washington, Feb. 20.-Responding t0 an inquiry from Senator Lodge, the sec retary of war today sent him a large number of papers bearing upon the icharge that cruelty is practiced by the American troops on the native Filipinos. Senator Lodge presented the documents in the senate. Among the documents forwarded are the records of 13 in vestigations into such charges, and the secretary says that "every report or charge of this description which has at any time been brought to the notice of the war department has been made the subject of prompt investigation." Unfounded or Exaggerated. He adds that in substantially every case inquired into the report has proved to be either unfounded or grossly exag gerated. He also says the department is now engaged in conducting an inves tigation into the charge made in the senate last week that the "water cure" is the favorite torture of the Amer hcans, especially of the Maccabebe scouts, to force the natives to give informatio., and that a soldier who was with Gen eral Funston had stated that he had helped to administer the "water cure" to iGO natives, all but 26 of whom died. He inclosed a copy of a letter received from ileneral Funston, dated February 2, 1902, in which he declares the statement to be an "atrocious lie, without the stightest foundation of fact," and also a letter from Lieutenant ilatson, the com mander of the Maccabebe scouts, to the same effect. Copies of the army regulations prohib Iling cruelty also are forwarded, as arc the memoranda ti 44 cases of officers, soldiers and camp followers, who have ies'n tried, and 39 of them convicted for violation of these orders. Cruelty of Filipinos. Presenting the other side of the picture, SereOtary itRoot says: "The war on the part of the Filipinos has been conducted with the barbarous cruelty common among uncivilized races, and with general disregard to the rules of civilized warfare. They deliberately adopted the policy of killing all natives, however peaceful, who were friendly to our government, and in literally thou sands of instances these poor creatures, dopendent upon our soldiers for protec tion, have been assassinated. The Fil ipino troops have frequently fired upon our men from under protection of flags of truce, tortured to death American prisoners who have fallen into their hands, buried alive both Americans and friendly natives and horribly mutilated the bodies of the American dead. That the soldiers fighting against such an enemy, and with their own eyes witness ing such deeds, should occasionally act regardless of their orders and retaliate by unjustifiable severity is not incred ible. Such Things Always Happen "Such things happen in every war. even between two civilized nations, and they always will happen while war lasts. That such occurrences have been sanc tinned or permitted is not true. That there has been any such practice is not true. The cases have been few and far bet ween, scattered infrequently over a great area of country along the course of three years of active conflict, through thousands of engagements and among many thousands of troops. That these occasional acts have characterized our army or its conduct is not true, any more than the deeds of lawless violence which constantly occur in every large city characterize the people of the city. The war in the Philippines has been conducted by the American army with scrupulous regard for the rules of civil lized warfare, with careful and genuine consideration for the prisoner and the non-combatants, never surpassed, if ever equaled, in any conflict, worthy of praise and relleeting credit upon the American people.., LIBERALS FOR BOERS. Party Pass Resolutions of Adhesion to Home Rule. (By Associated Press.) London, Feb. 20.-At the general meet ing of the general committee of the Na tional Liberal Federation, held at Leices ter yesterday, after much dissent and an animated debate, a resolution was passed condemning the policy of insisting on the unconditional surrender of the Boers in South Africa, affirming that the future contentment and security of South Africa could only le secured by regular peace, on broad, generous lines, welcom ing the impetus Lord Rosebery has given to this policy and calling on all liberal members of the house of commons to support the liberal leader, Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman, in his advocacy of this policy. If any question remained as to the like lihood of a working agreement between ILord Rosebery and the liberal party rrachine, it was answered in the negative last night in an address delivered by Sir Henwy Campbell-Bannerman, the liberal leader in the house of commons at Leicester. After the customary strictures on the government for its incapacity and its wrongheadedness in failing to conclude an honorable truce with the Boers, Sir' Henry said flatly that he declined to wipe his slate of liberal principles and strongly reaffirmed his adhesion to hogre rule. Siamese Ant Cavalry. (St. James Gazette.) Not long: ago a French explorer, M. Charles Meissen, in traveling through tiam observed a species of 'smail geay ants which were new to him. Th ee ants were much engaged in traveling; they lived in a damp place and went in troops. To his surprise he noticed You can reach everybody in B1utte with a want ad In the Inter Mountain. It is the family paper of Butte,, eagerly waited for every evening and read at the hearthstone in leisure. among them from time to time an oc casional ant which was much- larger than the others and 'moved at a much swifter pace, and each of these larger ants, M. Meissen says, always carried one of the gray ants on its baca. This discivery led him to watch their move ments closely. He soon saw that while the main body of gray ants was always on foot, they were aaconpanied by at least one of their own sort mounted on one of these larger ants. He mounted and detached himpelf now and then from the line, rode rapidly to the head, came swiftly back to the - rear, and seemed to he the commander of the ex pedition. The explorer was satisfied from his observation that this species of ant employs a larger ant-possibly a drone of the same species, though he had no means of provitig this-as we employ horses to ride upon, though scarcely more than one ant in each colony seems to be provided with a mount.
