he had arrived within 2:0 yards of the

was a lanky Dutchman we never could

fired on. The captain and the man with
him turned to Ii'k for cover, when the

march to B Company, twenty-five miles
away. At 7 o'clock in the evening another
detail was ready to start to Cebu in a Fai"
boiat. and a few minutes before 8 o'clock
the captain died, so the detail started In
the boat for Cebu to report it. The 1next
day, February 6. the detail came back in a
launch with Maj. Leafe. our battalion com

the body was taken aboard and the launch
started for Cebu. Almost the last words

"We have two Filipino prisoners-a lIeu
tenant and a spy. We caught the spy as he
was coming into the town. He had some
papers on him that gave us IL great deal

lieutenant was brought In yesterday. He is
a little fellow, not as big as I am. Yester
day we gave the spy a scare. We took him
out nod put a rope around his neck and
td him that if he didn't tell all he knew
about the insurgents up he would go. Well,
he told us all he knew. le told us that
our missing men had passed through this
town. and that one of triem was so sick
that he was left with the priest of the
town. I have just had the two prisoners
out building hreastworks across a road in
rear of the eamp in case of an attack by the
insurgents. They have adopted guerri'la
warfare row, and if we run across them
there wil he no prisoners taken. Our com
pany is just beginning to get hard luck.
Our captain is the first man killed in the
regiment, although quite a number have
been wounded, and then losing our five men.
Well, it is the fortune of war."
TO AID BOER AMiULANCE SERVICE.
State Department Considering Ques
tion of Transmitting Funds.
The State Department is taking steps to
ascertain whether it can -accede to the
wivhes of the Red Cross Aid Association in
the matter of transmitting funds to U. S.
Consul Hay at Pretoria for the extension
of the Boer ambulance service, and the
supply of redicines for the Boer sick and
A request to that effect was preferred by
Mr. Pruyn. an officer of the organization re
ferred to. It differed somewhat from ap
pliattons made n behalf of certain Ger
man organizations in the west, the purpose
in the latter case being to extend aid to the
Boer widows and orphans. The department
is inclined to accede to Mr. Pruyn's re
quest, as it d'd in the case of the German
But it is probable that, to avoid any ap
pearance of bias, the effort will be to pro
vide for a disbursement of funds for the
relief of the sick and wounded, regardless
of nationality, during the continuance of
the war. The department is now in cable
correspondence with its representatives
abroad on this subject.
Foreign Historians Not ladorsed.
The histories of the Spanish war, con
tributed by the Spanish and German offi
cers who participated in the events of
which they wrote, have formed the sub
jeet of a half dozen special publications
by the office of naval intelligence. Natural
ly many of these statements have brought
forth strong contradictions and impeach
ment from the Amerienn officers who were
on the other side. Therefore Secretary
Long has just Issued a circular note stat
ing that the Navy Department does not
indorse these views of foreign writers, but
has avoided interfering with their narra
tives. In the interest of accuracy, flag
officers, commanding officers and others
who served in the late war, are invited to
submit comments or statements traversing
any incorrect assertions in the publications,
sueh corrections, if possible, to be based on
log books and records made at the time
of the particular occurrence in question.
Debating the Hawaiian Bill.
In the House yesterday afternoon Mr.
Robinson (Ind.) criticised the provision in
the Hawaiian bill continuing in force labor
contracts existing in Hawaii, denouncing it
as legalizing a system of wage slavery.
During Mr. Robinson's remarks Mr. Knox
interrupted to deny that the penai statutes
regarding contract labor would be contin
ued in force by the pending bill. "Those
statutes," said he, "are distinctly repea'cd
by this bill. The trouble with the gentle
man is that he evidently has not studied
the bill before the House.'
Mr. Mondell (Wyo.) praised the form of
government proposI by the hill. and the
debate then drifted to the subject of ex
Mr. Thomas (N. C.) and Mr. Williams
(Miss.) made anti-expgnsion speeches.
Mr. Boute'l (111.) replied to Mr. Williams
in the concluding speseh of the day. At 5
o'clock the House adjourned.
Disappearing District Boundaries.
To the Editor of The Evening Star:
I am told that many of the milestones
placed on the lines bordering the District
of Columbia by the engineers who estab
lished those lines under the direction of
General Washington have been. removed un
lawfully. I have only seen two of them.
One, at the north corner, was, when I was
quite a young man, pointed out to me by
the late Thomis Simpson, sr. It stood a
short d-stance from the railroad station at
Sifver Spring in a northeasterly direction.
The other stone I saw some twelve years
back in the village of Takoma. It was
then very much defaced-so much so that
the figures cut upon it were riot legible.
These boundary p.inters ought tobe rep'aced

SCHOOLS AND TELEPHONES
DISCUSSION BY EAST WASHINGTON
Demand That Status of Sehool Eosed
Be Clearly Degmed-Other
There was a special meeting of the East
Washington Citizens' Association last night
at Baum's Hall, which was called by Mr.
T. W. Smith. president of the association,
to consider questions deemed to be of pub
lic Importance. Several communications
from other associations were read and the
report of the executive committee was sub
Among the communications received was
one from the Columbia Historical Society.
In this letter the society offered to take
charge of the records of the association, for
the preservation of the important business
recorded. This letter, as well as others,
was referred to the executive committee.
The Public Schools.
The school question was discussed by
several members of the association. A let
ter relating to the proposed change in the
school system was received from the North
Capitol and Eckington Citizens' Associa
tion. The secretary stated In the letter
that he had been instructed to ask the sev
eral citizens' associations to urge upon
Congress favorable action upon the pro
"If the report of the Senate Investigating
committee is not adopted," stated the sec
retary, "it is probable the present system
will continue, and also that the teachers
who had the courage to state facts before
the committee may have to suffer."
Mr. Appleton P. Clark. Jr., acting chair
man of the committee on schools and li
braries, submitted a report. After setting
-tut the contents of the bill, the committee
states that its members are of the opinion:
"First-That it Is desirable to have - the
status of the school board more clearly de
fined than under present conditions, and
that the full authority for control of the
public schools should be placed In their
hands. The school board, as it exists, is an
advisory board and has only such powers
as the Commissioners may delegate to it
which seem rather uncertain. The line of
demarcation between the duties and re
sponsibilities of the superintendent of
achools and the trustees does not seem to
be clearly defined.
Appointment of Trustees.
"Second-That the trustees of the public
schools should be appointed by the Com
missioners of the District instead of by the
President, as provided by this amendment.
The Commissioners are in a better post
tion by reason of their more intimate local
acquaintance to make the best selections
for members of the school board. The
President may have practically no knowl
edge of local affairs. and without the time
to give due consideration to what to him
would be quite unimportant appointments.
"Third-That the board of trustees should
consist of at least eleven members, one tor
each school division, and they should re
side in the divisions for which they are ap
pointed, and should have been residents of
the District of Columbia for the five years
immediately preceding their appointment,
and s-hould not hold any other office under
the United States or the District govern
"Our public school system comes in closir
touch with the people than any other
branch of the government. It is very de
sirable not to centralize the power, but to
spread it out and have representatives scat
tered through the various neighborhoods of
a community, so as to bring to the central
board a true knowledge of the various
phases of educational and social conditions,
and thus have the knowledge to properly
provide for the needs of each section. We
believe that this cannot be accomplished
better than by purely local representation
of comparatively small divisions, by trus
tees who are residents of the sections they
"Fourth-Should Congress deem it advis
able to attach some compensation to the of
lice of trustee, we are of the opinion that
the amount should not be as large as stated
in the amendment; it should not exceed $300
per annum for each trustee.' For a school
board it is desirable that the place should
truly seek the man and not the man the
place, and it fills us with apprehension if
the compensation should be large enough
to create undue striving for the appoint
ments from a financial standpoint."
Mr. Tracy L. Jeffords suggested in the
form of an amendment that the word
"male" be inserted before the word eleven
in the report. This, he explained, would
mean that the board of trustees should be
composed entirely of men.
Several members were soon upon their
feet to protest against the adoption of the
amendment. It was their opinion that the
mothers of the children should have a say
in the matter of schools. Mr. Jeffords then
suggested that the amendment be voted
down in order that he might move thatthe
word "female" be inserted. The associa
tion voted simply to permit the amendment
to lie on the table. Another amendment
requiring that the trustees be citizens of
the United States was accepted and the
report was adopted.
Telephone Question Discussed.
When President Smith called the atten
tion of the association to the question of
telephones Mr. Tracy L. Jeffords moved
that the president of the association ap
point a committee of three to appear be
fore the Senate subcommittee at a hearing
soon to be held and that the association re
affirm the resolutions passed two years ago,
which were read, as follows:
"First. That the charges for telephone
service in the District should be lowered
and unlimited service furnished.
"Second. That we will use all reasonable
efforts to effect this result.
"Third. That we believe the telephone
service in the District should be under
"lFourth. That we favor legislation and
other action for the Introduction Into the
District f any competing telephone com
pany. whilh is souni financially and fair
In its character and methods, and which
will give sufficient guaranty to properly
and promptly repair streets where it dis
turb's them, and the franchise of which
shall provide that It shall continue in busi
ness for a tertm of not tess than ten years
and shall not dIspose of Its franchise of
rights in any manner during that time, and
simit not impose any unnecessary restric
tions upon sub~scrib~ers. and that during
sail perliod the telepho~ne rates shall not
Ibe raised or the character of the service in
any way impaired.''
The motion was adolited.
Charities and Corrections.
Rev. W. Et. Parsons, chairman of the
committee on charities and corrections, ad
dressed the ass-eciation. The question was
l'rought up by a report of the commIttee
of the beard of trade, recently made. con
cerning the jail, workhouse and alms
house. The report recommends the ulti
mate removal of these institutions from
their present sites, together with potlter's
field and smallpox hospital, and other
tnlings that are objectionable.
Mr. S. WV. Curriden said he thought it
was a gross Injustice to the people of East
Washington to continue these institutions
in their present locations. They prevent
the extension of Massachusett~s and Geor
gia avenues. He told of a conversation that
occurred between a real estate dealer and a
prospective purchaser. The latter was a
comparative stranger In East WVashington,
and when he learned that the buildings in
sight of Lincoln Park were prisotns a pros
pectIve deal was declared off. After fur
ther remarks the report was adopted.
Before adjournment Mr. N. 'I. Ordway
moved that the association make an effort
to have the President appoint an East
Washington man as a member of the board
of Commissioners. During the course of his
remarks he said the present members of the
board seemed to be good men, although he
would not agree that all tbe colored people
and certain foreignets are thoroughly bad.
The resolution was adopted.
At the close of the meeting President
Smith appointed B. B. Earnshaw, V. Bald
win Johnson and Tracy L. Jeffords mem
ber's of a committee to appear before the
Senate subcomamittee and take part in the

ACTION OF PRESBYTERY
BUSINESS B 0EFORE SPRING MEETING
OF CHURCH JUDICATORY.
Abolition of-Meard4 of Beacea by
First ChaurebDisapprovwe- Dele
gates to General Assembly.
The sessions of ths spring meeting of
Washington city presbytery, which were
held at the Presbyterian church on 15th
street between I and K streets northwest,
beginning Monday afternoon and continu
ing through yssterday, were brought to a
close. in the afternoon. A good deal of
business was dispatched. The committee
on temperance, through the chairman, Rev.
Dr. Easton, presented a report which urged
greatsr attention on the part of the
churches to this great reform, urging the
President to prevent the importation and
sale of liquor in the Philippine Islands and
the enactment of pending legislation which
would do away with the army canten.
iThe report was adopted, with the exo.p
tion of the resolution relative to the army
canteen, and action on the latter was de
ferred until tha next meeting of the pres
The action of the congregation of the
First Presbyterian Church in abolishing the
board of deacons was the subject of a good
deal of debate. It appeared that an appeal
was taken from this action to th session
of the church, and, in the opinion of the
presbytery, that body Improperly laid the
appeal upon the table. It was explained
that at that time all the deacons but one
had resigned and the mambers refused to
elect another board. It was, therefore,
necessary to adopt this course in order to
carry on the affairs of the board. The
presbytery directed that as soon as, in the
judgment of the session of the church, the
time Is opportune the action declaring the
board of deacons abolished be reversed.
Delegates to the ganeral assembly, which
meets at St. Louis in May, were elected as
Ministerial-Principals, Rev. C. Alvin
Smith and Rev. John Van Ness; alternates,
Rev: Asa S. Fiske, D. D., and Rev. W. H.
Lay-Principals, Mr. John Leetch and Mr.
R. L. Ewing; alternates, Mr. A. B. Garden
and Mr. Theodore F. Sargent.
The educational committee reported six
candidates for the ministry, as follows:
E. W. Snow, H. W. Snow, Peter R. Lee,
W. E. McBarth, W. F. Doty and J. McD.
The presbytery Indorsed the act of the
church erection committee in approving

for a loan to erect a chapel at German
A request that the privilege of taking up
offerings in the churches of the presbytery
for the construction of a monument to

Md., was granted.
A resolution was adopted that the rail
road companies and authorities of Mary
land be petitionad to use their efforts to
prohibit Sunday base ball playing in that
state by young men from this city.
The thanks of the presbytery were ex
tended to Rev. Mr. Grimke, the pastor, add
the congregation of the 15th street church
for their hospitality. The presbytery then

permitted each-of the governments party to

Fears were entertained at first that se
rious abuses might follow the inauguration
of the new practice, and very recently the
Texas people were disposed to complain be
cause the goverrment of Mexico refused to
honor their application for .the surrender of
the Mexican, Gonzales, charged with hav
ing committed murder in Texas.
As a matter of fact, the officials here were
inclined to believe -that the Texans had
failed to make out a-good prima facie case.
However, the ill feeling on that scare
seems to have dimnished, as is evidenced
by the following letter received by Solicitor
Penfield of the Department of State. who
has to do with these extradition matters,
from R. W. Dow, sberif of Maverick coun
"I beg to say to You that the extradition
of Antonio Torres, athe Mexican charged
with murder in Uvilde feounty, Texas, was
granted by the governor of Mexico on the

people along the Telas-Uexican border that
this case, coupled with 'the delivery of Mrs.
Rich by this govefnment to -the Mexican
authorities at El Palko, f'exas; will do more
for the protection of life and property along
