A.ZETTEER OF THE PHILIPPINES imprehensive Publication Issued by the War Department. [he Pronouncing Gazetteer and Geo aphical Dictionary of the Philippine IsI .ds, with maps, charts and illustrations, blished as Senate do'cumnent No. 280, FIf -seventh Congress, first session, which is prepared in the bureau of insular af ire, War Department, has just been is ed and contains a wealth of-information noerning our oriental possessions. ['he gazetteer proper contains 264 pages, luding the index, while the geograpnical etionary occupies (168 pages, exclusive of e maps, charts and illustrations. When Dewey's brilliant victory awoke ,tional interest in the Pliilippines the ob inable literature in English on the sub et was meager, much of it was old and most out of print, while Spanish works are to be found in but few libraries. [t was a herculean task to discover, read, gest and arrange the Information that the 'ople were asking for and to keep pace th the rapid changes in the present civil td military history .of the Philippines. rho work contains the most recent and thoritative information, from official and her sources, concerning the islands, rela re to their geography, physical features, eas, communications, population, towns, sources, wealth, products, industries, mmnerce, finance, social economy, natural story, military occupation and civil gov nment, followed by an alphabetically ar nged descriptive list of the islands, prov ces, districts, pueblos, cities, towns, ountains, volcanoes, rivers, seas, straits, ilfs, bays, lakes, capes, light houses and her mapped objects and places to the umber of 10,300. When it is remembered that no accurate .rvey, of the archipelago has ever been ado, and that no accurate census has or been taken, it will be seen that all in rmation obtainable was but relatively ac rate, and conflicting statements had to reconciled according to the author's best dgment. The work, however, as a whole, extremely valuable and shouid be the ak companion of every student who do res to inform himself as to the Philip nes. With the census that has been ordered Nd the surveys now being made by the of-. :ers of the United States and insular gov unent, ezact information will be 'avaIl ,le, and now that the way has boon azed, at no little cost of time and labor, other edition embracing the rapidly ac imulating information will be even more dluable, and will ma#e the work a stand id of Intermation concerning the fislands. is to be regretted that the edition or red by Clongress was not larger, for al ady requests have been received that will or. than exhbauatteeet limited edt m. of which2, dpe baye been placed the credit 41the m besof the House md' 1L000 to thie sators, Li dIspatenh fro0 Salt Lake City.
