tions a.re being made for the establishment of a
System of free rural postal delivery 'n Niagara

■Watt or court to order mail to be pro
duced AND OFEXED.
TTasfclrgtcn, June V>.— The proceedings at In<iiEn
epoUs with a vl*w to havir.g- produced and opened
In court a packEge and letter reased to C. W. F.
Xcely are said by the lew cfEcers of the Postofnce
Department to be unusual, such cases occurring
at infr^uTt !r.t«-r\-a!.«. As a rule, matter sent
through the malls under seal, and lira 1 1111. postage
; - ' first class rate*, cannot be opened and inspected
under any circumstances, the exception being
when an ord*»r for Inspection is issued by a court.
It ha* bat decid»~l by the Supreme Court that
euch packages or letters cannot be opened by post
office employes, but that a court has the came
right to order ruch an Investigation as If the
articles were actually in the possession of the ad
dress**. In order to obtain such an order deposi
tion most be made that the package or letter in
Question i« supposed to contain matter which
ahesjl<j be made public, ar.d the package must be
epedfically described. It Is presumed that the ar
ticle addressed to Neely of necessity mast be un
der Mat at a postmaster has the right to inspect
ail matter prepaid at third or fourth class rate 6.
The fact that a package is sent at first class rates
tinder s*aL is regarded as a suspicious drcum
•tanre Indicating a desire to k**p the contents
secret, and It is believed that this fact may nave
had wcjrnt in directing the action of the postoSice
Inspectors In the pr*-«* nt case.

PROBLEMS THAT CONFRONT THE CIVIL
COMMISSION IN THE ISLANDS.
Manila. June 10.— Judge William H. Taft and
his colleagues of the Philippine Civil Commission
were beset during their first week in Manila by
» ■_.•-.: of callers of all nationalities, pro
faaatoiu ar.i Interests who presented a bewilder
ing assortment of recommendations touching
military and civil policies,. The Commissioners
atatamed the attitude of unprejudiced listen
era. They admit that, while they anticipated
an enormous task the complexity and dlfflculty
of the problems and conditions are •srellnJgh
staggering. They are determined, however.
with the co-operation cf the Army. In pacifying
as well as In *-■•-:- to make the Philippines a
peaceful and honestly governed country ■■ ' '-
They tut Gecerai Mac Arthur admlaisterins
civil and aUHtaff affairs in a way that Is uni
raaßy popular. The Filipino party, embrac
ing prominent Insurrectionists who accepted
American rule through force of circumstances..
Is already risking overtures for the discussion
.'. a pcbeme of perrr-asest government, prac
tically reviving the old proposition of autonomy
under an American protectorate.
GREAT EXPECTATIONS DISAPPOINTED.
There are, of course, some Filipinos who be
lieved that Judge Taf: would tring the millen
nium !r. his waistcoat pocket, ar.d these profess
to be disappointed because sweeping changes
are not enforced immediately. Judge Taft's ut
terances indicate a conciliatory policy toward
the natives. He has conferred with the high
Army officer", ton? of what strongly urge that
a larger army is necessary to suppress the la
rurrecticn, believing that civil government will
be impossible until the rampant rebellion in the
southern districts cf Luzon. hi the extreme
northern provinces of the island, and in the
visayas, except Negro*. Is crushed.
One of the foremost questions ia hew and
'.--'. what materials to organize a civil fore*
with which gradually to supersede the Army
a* a governing ma Mac Spain's auxiliary, the
Church, is necessarily barred from considera
tion. American experience with the natives dia
courares hope of honest government through
them until a generation cr more of training shall
have eradicated the results of Spain's tutelage.
A large proportion of the provincial officials
already Installed have proved treacherous
while the native lice and ojjlcials here ia M*»

disproportionate to their salaries. Charts

STATUS OF THE CHURCH.
The Commissioners also Bad that the future
states of the Church In the Philippines is a
leading question In th» minds of many, although
■eat of those wh« have talked with Judge Taft
and his colleagues draw the Inference that the
Commissioners are opposed to the reinstatement
of the friars. Archbishop Chapelle .-as taken a
strong stand in supporting the request of the
friars to be establish! in their old position.
As a result of last week's. scouting, more than
two hundred Filipinos wer* killed and one hun
dred and sixty captured, while 140 rifles, with
ammunition and stores, were secured.
The American loss was nine killed, including
a captain and lieutenant: two captains and
twenty-one privates wounded, and one captain
taken prisoner by the Filipino*.
CUBAN TACTICS IN THE PHILIPPINES.
POLICY OF THE INSURGENT MACHINE IN
Manila, May 13.— "1f we were fighting an army
the work weald he comparatively easy," said Gen
eral MaeAithar In speaking of the situation which
confronted htm when be assume! the oil ■ of
Governor-General. The report had come from
General Toons that Tlnio and Agulr.aido were
gathering a force In the Beni Mountains, where
they had been hunted and scattered five months
before The military were hoping that Tlr.io would
form another army because an army can be lo
cated sad followed and, if It win try to make a
stand, can be defeated; but such pood fortune Is
improbable. Fo: one reason, the Americans are
so disposed, covering most of the important roads
and paesee. that It would be impossible for mart
than a few hundred Fi'.ipincs to attempt to as
semble without many of then b*in? discovered:
and General Mac Arthur added, for another reason,
... Filipinos have learned that t'cey can han
dicap the Americans' progress more effectively by
AN UNDERGROUND GOVERNMENT.
General Mac Arthur has to flsht a Eecret or
par.2l- which amounts almost to a government,
■which exercises • rer to son extent and enforces
Its decrees over all of Luzon and most of the
other Islands, which collects lazes here In Manila
and even gives receipts for duties paid on the
cargoes of native boats passing i»P the rivers In
the sul> rl The control of Ibla underground or-
■ 7 ■ ■..-•■■ ted to be In the hands of a
Junta whose headquarters are In Manila, but co
great is the loyalty or f ear which It commands
that the authorities have been inabte to trace Its
roots, and the question whether It Is Identical with
the famous KaUpunan Society is an open one.
Many of the elections of municipal governments
he.d by the American officers an controlled by the
revolutionary organization, which selects the can
didate, and some of these governments are un
questionably efficient parts of its machinery.
Probably the men who are direct I the guerilla
activity in the town* know no superior except the
general who baa authority in their province, al
though they ma] believe that Aguir.a-ldo Is still
the supreme htad In fact, as be is in the minds
of th« poP u '2ce.
The poMcy of the insurgent machine Is to repeat
the Cuban revolution in the Philippines, to dis
courage conquest by bo devastating the islands and
keeping them In such a stats of war that they will
be us«-l*-*s to the conquerors. Nowhere outside of
the garrisoned towns can Americans go. except In
laree armed parties, less the country for twenty
„,« touth of Manila and ten miles north be ex
cetj'wi The provinces dire • . south of Manila and
tho«» north as far as Dagupan are the quietest of
the island, and there aenoohi and local govern
ments are in operation, and much monej is being
expended In building roads and other Improve
ments. The municipal governments prov«> useful
under the strict supervision of th& American ofE
cers and the towns are cleaner and better admin
is'ered than many American villages, but, gen-
-a.- ■•• speaking, the native officials nave no initia
♦lve and their efficiency without the paternal vigi
lance of the American soldiers would bs doubtful.
OUTSIDE THE TAGALO PROVINCES.
The theory that the Filipinos outside of the
Tagalo provinces wen .':•". to American rule
has been deeply shaken by recent events. All of
the northeastern coast beyond Dagupan is In a
State of war. and tr°re are frequent fights, with
heavy losses to the FiUptaea. All of the southern
provinces, Inhabited by the Visayans. are also tur
bulent, and In the Camarlnes, Nueva Caceres and
AJbay provinces the Americans control only the
territory within th" picket tines of the garrisons Jn
the coast towns, while these garrisons are subject
to frequent attacks from large Insurgent forces.
With the exception of Macrae, which, being the
wealthiest island of the Philippines, is [he most
friendly to American rule, the Vlsayan Islands
■how similar conditions. There are guerilla bands
In Negros which are preventing the sugar planters
from putting in their crops by threats of burning
the buildings, but American authority controls
throughout the island, and the planters are organ
izing against the bandits. Panay I* overrun by the
Insurgents outside of the American isi 1 loon a They
have rift^en hundred or two thousand rifles; they
levy a tax of 50 p«T cent on all the. crop* planted,

JUSTICE O'BRIEX XOT TO RESIGX.
HE RETURNS FROM EUROPE MUCH BENE
FITED BY HIS TRIP— HE TELLS A
STORT TO ILLUSTRATE HIS
A short time before Justice Morgan J. O'Brien
went to Europe it was rumored that he Intended t»
retire from the bench of the Appellate Division of
the Supreme Court and to resume private practice.
Further, it was said that in this event he would
Join the law firm— as It was then— of Tracy. Board
man v Platt. In h:s absence additional credence
was given to these reports by reason of the retire
ment from the firm of General Benjamin F. Tracy.
Justice O'Brien returned from Europe on Satur
day, and yesterday he was asked by a Tribune re
porter if the rumors referred to had any founda
"I did at one time contemplate resigning." he
replied, "but after a conference with the Governor
and my associates I decided to remain on the
beach. For the present, at any rate, I shall adhere
to that determination. In fact, I shall sit in court
Justice O'Brien explained that at the time he
thought of resigning he was suffering from ill
health, and in consequence was Inclined to take a
rather jaundiced view of things. To illustrate his
meaning better he related the following story:
"I was somewhat of the same condition and tem
perament," Justice O'Brien said, "as the two
discontented men. You've heard the story, haven't
you? No? Well, it applies to two men who while
on earth were forever faultfinding and leading a
disgruntled life generally. In course of tUne both
died and went to heaven. They happened to meet
one day, and one said to the other, 'wen. I suppose
you are happy nowT
" 'Well,' said the other. 'I don't know so much
about that. You see. when I was on earth I suf
fered from lumbago and rheumatism, and this con
tinual Boating around on damp clou--.- lookinjj
after mortals doesn't agree with me. But tell me.
how do you like being up here?"
" \Ju«i so so.' mused the first friend. 'I like the
music Of the tinklin? cymbals and the elnging of
th* seraphim and cherubim, and then these elysian
Ac ds lock very nice.'
" "Why. In that case. I should imagine you have
nothing to complain of.' friend No. 2 hazarded.
•• 'Nothing to complain of, eh? Do you see this
halo around my head?'
" 'Well, the thins doesn't fit.' "
Justice CB • good humaredly remarked that the
state of his health Boms Booths nsro tended to
make his disposition somewhat e'.milar to those
of the two men of the story. He added, however
that his trip to Europe, had invigorated him and
completely restored him to health.
STILL OX THE GRAX AXTILLA.
Nothing wa« done yesterday by the Barge OfHca
officials about the landing of the twelve-hundred
odd immigrants of the Spanish tramp steamer

As for governing the islands, for the present, at
least they must hare a military government.
Nothing el*e is possib.'e at present. la sp'.te of the
fact that peace is practically restored ail through
the i?'aads already we have tried the experiment of
establishing courts of equity based en the Ameri

of Negi are nsore than «3tis£ed. Everything is
running smoothly, and there will be a area crop
of sigar in Nerros this year than ever before.
