titration of tho problem presented by the
preenco In Cuba during Its occupation by
Catted States troops ot largo bands of Cubans,
those real work had ended with the signing of
the peace protocol, but who decline to lay down
their arms. Ot course this Government, on
account of the peculiar position of trust It oo-
taples toward Cuba, could not, oven went It so
inclined, compel those, armed bands to lay
'Ide their weapons and return to vocations
ot peace. Whllo most of thoso parties ot

they resolved to buy flags Innumerable and
tench the young Porto Rlcau Idea how
to wave. They appointed as suardian of tho
flags. Col. A. 0. Bnkewelt, Tho Colonel was

and roturqpt) yesterday ou tho Red D line

trifle chilly becauso ot the sudden transition
from n serol-tropicAl, cllmo to one that Is semi
wintry. Tho Colonel visited several places In the
northeasterly part ot tho Islapd boforo going to
Mayaguoz. ou tho west coast. He received In
the smaller places an enthusiastic welcome
Irom t)io school children. But Mnya-uez out
did all ot Porto Rtco.
A little boy who had heard about the qbject
of tho Colonel's visit was among tho first to
greet htm. Tho little boy got a silk flag. Ho
ran off and showed It to his mother, end pres
ently tho flag was floating from a pole a! tbe
top of tho boy's homo.
All the little boys in tho neighborhood heard
about tho flag and gathered under it. The flag
on tlio poje was leverently taken down and
headed a procession ot boy and cirls that here
down In the direction of tho Colonel's head
quarters. Tho mother of the boy held him by one
hand. The boy's other hand was glued to the
vole, as were tbe bauds ot other hoys. The
Colonel told the ohlldreu what tho flag meant
after 300 ot them had paraded tho streets ot
Mayaguez.
When the procession stopped at a nubile
square there wasn't a little one in tha throng
that didn't have alias. They wore all demon
strative as they passed In review o' the mili

child saluted his flag with a kiss, and the band

played patriotic nlrs.

"tiVli NATIONAL AIIl IX MANILA.
The Filipinos Believe It Is "A Hot Time
in tbe Old Town."
WsnixGTON, Dec. 20. Among tbe Presi
dent's callers to-day was Major Herbert M.
Lord, a paymaster of the volunteer army, who
has just returned from Manila. He was ao
companied by RepresentatlveDingley ot whose
committee, ths Ways and Means. Maior Lord
was cleric up to the time he was appointed to
the army. Major Lord says that the Filipinos
believe that "A Hot Time In the Old Town" Is
the American national air. When Manila foil
nearly all the regimental bands of the Ameri
can forces played the tune at freauent Inter
vals, and the small boys of the town began
whistling it. When Major Lord was ordered
to return to the United Btates he was the
guest of honor nt a farewell dinner. A na
tive' band was!engaacd for the occasion. The
leader ot the band understood English, and
when he was asked it his musicians could
render the American national air. he respond
ed proudly ln the affirmative. And the band
played "A Hot Time in the Old Town."
When Shatter's army was being landed at
Slboney and Daiquiri, the bands on the trans
mits played "A Hot Time." As at Manila,
the air was the most frequently heard at San
tiago. An officer, referring to this to-day. said
that it the war had lasted longer there would
'tave been many patriotic sonirs written, equal
line In popularity and permanent hold on tha
people those of the civil war.
"1 rredlet." he said, "that we will get nn
American Klnllng out ot the occupation of for
eign islands by American troops. The trouble
about our army heretotote has been that no
body saw anything romantlo in it. The army
if as too small to attract much attention. What
we need is some distinctive uame for the
Ameri;an soldier corresponding to the Tom

story of a small boy who had a relative In the

saw throe soldiers who bad been Indulging too

'Here comes my three drunken cousins. Joe

private, was Jos Jones to htm. It Is such little

popular expression. There Is one young en

chance to become the Klpllns; of the American

some excellent stories of life among, the en

Lima, 0 Pee. 20. Tho Amerlonn National
Bank in Fau rot's Opoia Hou.o, which is situ
ated on Probably the most prominent street
corner in Lima and directly across a' narrow
street from the central police olllqe, was
robbed last nigh', pf $-5.1)00, There is hot a
clue to the robbers and tho police have pot
discovered yet how the t,hleves got Into the'
vaults. No explosives ot any kind wero used
and there Is scarcely the faintest scraUih to
Indicate the use ot a tool. Still, lu obedience
to tho skill of the thieves, the dellcato and
complicated time looks operated ths pppdor
otis doors pud exposed., tho money within
hours ahead of the nppolpted tlnio. Tho time
locks wero set to opmi at 11 oVIock this morn
ing, nndtlie robberynlght not have boen dis
covered until then had not one ot tho outer
doors beon left open by the robbers.
When the discovery ot the robbery was
made this morning the time looks weie going
and thoy continued tu run until II o'clock, tho
hour for which thoy had been set. The bars of
the vaults were, however, thrown. The inner
doors wero. looked, audit took several hours'
work ot skilled mechanics to-day to open what
had been v readily opened lastnlzht ap
parently by the marauders. It was first an
nounced that all tho gold and the paper money
In the vaults had been taken,' to the amount
of $25,000. The silver was left.
Three rough hand-mode keys were found
near the doors of tho vaults and may, or may
not have been used. The locks that had yield
ed to this apparently new skill to bank rob
bery worked to-day as usual.
Skilled detectives have beon called from
other cities and extra police havo been de
tailed lit the hope ot capturing the tblovos and
unravelling the mrstory ot their power over
bank locks and; burs supposed to be burglar
proof.
Great crowds havu surrounded the bank ail
day, and It Is feared there will be a run on
It to-morrow. The Prat National Bank, In
which theZlate Calvin 8. Brlce was largely In
terested, tendqred tho American a loan of $25,
000 to-day, which was accepted. Tho Ameri
can will meet any demunds on It to-morrow
promptly, it Is declared,
The officers of the bank aro: Jacob Gold
smith, President: N. Michaels, Vice-President,
and Ous Kalb, Cashier. The directors to-day
ordered a 20 percent, assessment on all shares
tojnake good ths lass.
Late to-night somo persons connected with
the bank said the amount stolen was $10,000,
all In paper money and that $50,000 In gold
and silver was not taken. Thero Is an Insur
ance ot $5,000 against loss by theft.
There was an attempt to-day at tracking
the robbers with bloodhounds, with no sub
stantial results.
