CONSTABULARY IN THE FIELD Battle Is Hourly Expected?Out. laws to Be Surrounded by Ken Under Col. Taylor. MANILA, September 1.?An uprising against the government is reported in the province of Nueva Vlzraya. A con stabulary force is hurrying to the scene. and a battle Is expected hourly. The rebel movement la headed by Fim son Mandac, former governor of the province of Ilocos Norte, who has long been a fugitive frr?m Justice. Mandac occupies Solano, a town of ? bout fl.000 inhabitants, northwest of the center of Nueva Vizcaya and about fve miles north of Bayonbong. The telegraph wires north of Rayonbong liave been cut. and it is Impossible to learn the number of Mandac's follow ers Preparing for an Attack. col. Taylor, at the head of the con stabulary at Rayonbong. is preparing for an attack, and the constabulary forces from other points are moving toward So- i lano with the purpose of surrounding the ! outlaws and makinjr certain their capture or death. Government reinforcements are available if they should prove to be needed. Word of the trouble reached Manila to day. Mamiac, while governor, subjected a prisoner to a "third degree" examina tion of such severity that the man died. The governor was convicted of homicide and sentenced to fourteen years' impris onment. He appealed from the verdict of the court, and while the appeal was pending Jumped his bond and bad been missing for several months. It was thought that he had escaped abroad un til today, when an official dispatch an nounced that he had turned up at the head of a band of malcontents. Nueva Vlscaya is the central province of Lu son, and Bayonbong is its capital. War Department Surprised. The reported disturbance in the prov ince of Nueva Vlscaya comes as a sur prise to the officials of the bureau of insular affairs and the other offices of the War Department. No Intimation haa reached Washington of any general dis content in this wild, sparsely aettlsd province, and It Is believed here that It was a surprise likewise to the officials in the Phllppines. Difficulty will be encountered by the constabulary In wiping out the Mandac band, according to the views of officials ?f the War Department, if its number is large. Nevertheless, it Is expected here that the handicap* of the mountainous country will be overcome shortly and with litla if any, loss of life. , The fact that Mandac has taken his stand In Solano. In the province of Nueva Vlscaya. one or two hundred miles across the mountains from his home In the rovlnce of Ilocos Norte, leads officials ere to believe that his followers are few. Twice In the ahort period of his term of governor of Ilocos Norte have un official reports come to Washington of trouble in which Gov. Mandae figured. Found Guilty of Xurder. One report was that the governor, who was elected to office by a small majority last January, had been found guilty by a lower court of homicide and sentenced to Imprisonment for fourteen years in Blll Md. The trial took place, according to the report, at Laoag. The case aroae, it was said, from an attack upon two prisoners under confine ment at Laoag. the capital of the pro vince of Ilocos Norte. It was stated that the governor was accused of killing or.e of them with a kick in the abdomen. A few weeks later a report reached Manila and later Washington, that Oov Mandac had been found guilty re cently of the illegal detention of sev eral persons In Jail In his province. They were held over night. Later de velopments exonerated them, and the governor was subsequently charged with detaining them illegally. He was reported to have pleaded guilty and to have been fined fw*). Justice Trent of the supreme court of the Philippines granted an Injunction to restrain the trial court from executing the sentence until a petition for appeal was acted tipon. Officials are unable to reconcile the two report a but today's press dis patches are taken as evidence that Mandac haa been ousted from the gov ernorship of Ilocos Norte. 10RD KILMARNOCK WOUNDED.

NEW YORK'S FIGURES TONIGHT Advance Estimate of 4,465,604 Would Make Metropolis Close Rival of London. The population of Brooklyn, N. Y., Is 1.634,351, an Increase of 467,709, or 40.1 per cent, as compared with In 1900, according to figures given out by the cen sus bureau today. The population of Yonkers, N. Y., Is 79,80B, an Increase of 31,872, or 06.5 per cent, as compared with 47,931 In 1900. The population of Elmira N. Y., is 37, 176, an Increase of 1,304, or 4.2 per cent, as compared with 35,072 in 1000. Census of New Tork Tonight. Following its announcement of the pop ulation of Brooklyn, the census bureau will tonight make a statement of the popula tion of Greater New York as developed by the recent census. No Intimation as to the exact figur?e has been given out. It is known, however, that the census bureau has prepared an estimate of growth, based upon the Increase shown between 1WW) and 1906, which was some thing over 32 per cent. The present pop ulation would, by this computation, be over four and a half million?in exact tlgures 4,563,t*M. A gain of anything like 32 per cent for such a center of population will be almost marvelous. The result will be not only to establish New York's position as the second city of the world, but to cause it to almost approach rivalry with London. In lt#?l the population of London was 6,581.372. It Is estimated that it now exceeds 7,500,000. Thus the British me tropolis still surpasses the American by about 2,000,000 people. Suburbs of Half Million. Rightly, however, Jersey City, Hoboken and Bayonne, N. J., are all parts of New York city, as are Yonkers and Mount Vernon, N. Y. The combined population of these cities is almost half a mtlUon, and added to the estimated total of the city prover would bring the grand aggre gate up to more than five mllliona If New York should succeed in making the 32 per cent gain estimated, it would exceed, by more than 6 per cent, the average gain of eleven cities of over two hundred thousand people whose figures have been compiled. In any event no other city will ap proach the figures for New York. Of the foreign capitals Parts comes next. with a total In 1906 of 2.763.9B8, and Ber lin follows with 2,040,148.

The report is censorious in dealing with these officials and says had they acted with reasonable diligence the riot and lynching could have been prevented.

Of these, twenty five charge alleged rioters with murder In the first degree, twenty-one are ac cused of rioting, ten with assault and two with perjury. POSSIBLY A KITE.

IMPORTANT DEAL ON FOOT Claimed That Combination Would Be Invincible. DESPAIR OF REPUBLICANS Dismay in Financial District Over Roosevelt Speeches in West?Party Ties in New York Loosened. Special Fmm a Staff NEW YORK, September 1.?Of pro- i found political importance Is the fact that negotiations are In progress looking to a possible amicable understanding be tween William R. Hearst and Mayor Gaynor by which Gaynor can accept the nomination for governor without oppo sition from Mr. Hearst. The te^Tns of the proposed agreement cannot now be stated. Mr. Hearst is in Europe. Mr. Gaynor Is 111, and the ne- i gotlatlons are being conducted by oth ers. It is sufficient for the moment that such a deal is being tried out. If the agreement can be reached. It is claimed, it will mean a combination that would be invincible. Some think that even Roosevelt as a candidate for governor could not beat it. It will mean. In case Roosevelt should run, a campaign fund for the democrats of a sl*e that would make Hanna's bank In 1896 look like thirty cents. It will mean the cer tain loss of many seats In the national House of Representatives now' held by republicans. It is asserted even It might mean a democratic legislature in New Y ork. Up to this time two things have stood In the way of making Mayor Gaynor the candidate for governor. One was the practical certainty that if he were nom inated Mr. Hearst would run as an Inde pendent candidate for governor and re peat the experience In the mayoralty elec tion, when by such a course he defeated the Tammany county ticket. The other obstacle was the fact that upon Mayor Gaynor's retirement the act ing mayor would be John Purroy Mitchell, a Hearst man. who might, by his Influ ence with the board of estimate. Interfere with Tammany's contracts. Mitchell is a nephew of that William D. Purroy who was the Inveterate foe of Tammany and fought Kelly and Croker. If Mr. Hearst can be placated Murphy can be taken care of, and there will be a united democracy In city and state, pre senting a front to the disorganised repub licans that will bristle with menace both In this campaign and for the presidential campaign of 1912. The proposed agreement may slip a cog, since Mr. Hearst is a very independent man, but certain it Is that the most im portant political development of the hour is the fact that a compromise is being ?ought. Despair of Republicans. Many well informed republicans here think that the governorship has practf* cally gone by the board, anyhow. The bitter factional warfare in their own ranks spells nothing but republican de feat, hi the opinion of some of the lead ing republicans of the city. They are bending their efforts now to trying to preserve the organisation and save what they can from the wreck for their own little political machines and to defeat the scheme of direct nominations. 1 am told that some of the leaders think that the convention may stampede, and Insist upon having Roosevelt for temporary chairman, despite the recom mendation of the state committee. These men say, however, that they are confident of being able to retain control of the committee on resolutions and make the platform. The weak spot In their hope, though. Is the logical suggestion that If the enthusiasm for Rorsevelt is such as to cause the convention to ride do^n the committee and make him tem porary chairman, the enthusiasm may go to the length of putting Roosevelt men on the resolution committee and letting the colonel suggest the candidate. There Is no sign of weakening on the part of the old guard In their plans to make Vice President Sherman the tem porary chairman. William Barnes, Speaker Wads worth. Tim Woodruff and all the old guard leaders have nailed their flag to the mast, and not only will go down fighting, but will do some fighting before going down. Delegates to the state convention are being elected right along, and the old guard claims that they are getting the lion s share of them. Whether they will stick or not In the face of an outburst of Roosevelt enthuslam. when the colonel steps upon the stage, no one can tell. Dismay in Financial District. Any man of the Roosevelt type who might be nominated by the republicans for governor would find arrayed against him the great financial Interests of New York. It would be difficult to adequately express the profound alarm and dismay which have seised upon the financial dis trict as a result of Col. Roosevelt1 s radi al talks In the west. Only by co-of>e-n tlon of the big men In the financial dis trict Is the alarm being kept from spread ing so as to affect securities In the face of what Is considered a pro found menace to business and finance as presented by Roosevelt's new crusads. men are wavering In -their politcal allegi ance. forgetting whether they are demo CTati or republicans and looking to the personality of candidates and not their nlatform professions. In this state of mind. Mayor Gaynor. as a safe and sane candidate, is beln* con sidered by men who would ordinarily vote against a democrat on general principles. It Is recognised that Mayor Gaynor's course has been founded upon considera tion for the law. He has taken no step outside the strict letter of the law. and he has promised his friends he would not depart from this policy. If they nominate him for governor, and Roosevelt should be nominated against him. or some man acceptable to Roose velt don't you suppose that the financial and Industrial Interests of this great state would move heaven and earth to elect Gaynor? And In bringing that about would not many a republican officeholder, state and national, find the ground crumbling un der his feet? , ^ Such considerations as these lend sig nificance to the efforts now under way to bring about the nomination of Mayor Gaynor for governor without Incurring the hostility of Mr. Hearst. Good demo crats will devote many prayers to that end. and a few republicans will also Join in. ' , N. O. M. VERA FITCH HAT LIVE. .* Surgeons Say There's a Cbanoe for Would-Be Suicide. new YORK.

General Property Tax Defective In herently, Say* Committee. MILWAUKEE, Wis., September 1.? That the failure of the general property tax la due to the Inherent defects of the theory, is the conclusion of the commit tee on the causes of the failure of such tax after a year's investigation. The re port is made to the International Tag Association convention today. The committee on uniform classification of real estate reported that a fair and ac curate assessment of real estate will be promoted by the adoption of tax maps and the classification of real estate, as presented in the report of the committee on uniform listing of real estate. The latter committee in Its report favored the listing of real property under the two heads of "value of land" and "value of Improvements," and that ths rule of listing real property values in New York city Is best adapted for secur ing an equitable assessment.

The lights on that road coat the District $400 a year.

Why Llghta Are Discontinued. The thirteen naphtha lampe oa Branch avenue and the elenren naphtha leni|ia on the Suit!and road ha+e been ordered dis continued because the Commissioners be lieve that any one coming Into the city via the Bowen road can get to the city by striking Into the eastern extension of Pennsylvania avenue. Naylor road Hgbta have been ordered out because the Com missioners believe that most travelers at night come into that section via the Har rison road. The Ridge road, from which thirty-eight lights will be taken, rims through a deep woods. It ia explained by the electrical inapectors who studied the situation. They claim the road Is an unfrequented one. has but few houses on it. and Is a poor road for travel. \ Comparatively "mallet raffle Is reported to the Commissioner^ for the Sargent road, the Ranker Hill road and the Queen's Chapel road, -arid any one trav eling toward that nort?rn section of the District at nUht.

"The llghta were put along these roads." said he. "after hearings before the Houae committee on the District, at which the Commissioners at that ttme showed the lights were needeifV If they were needed then they are neoded now. I do not accuse the present Commissioners of any injustice at all. but I think they have made a mistake, and If J have the chance I will try to prove It to them. "I have been on four Juriee In damage suits arising from accidents to farmers* wagons being hit on Wisconsin avenue at night. If there are accidents with lights what Would happen without rights. "It strikes me also that there might be a question of food supply In this lighting proposition, for I don't believe the farmers are coming in to town along dark roada any more than they can help."

Price, chairman of the central committee of southeastern suburban associations, said today that he knew no action of the District Commlaalonera for years that had stirred up so much feel ing among suburbanites generally aa this one cutting off close to 450 lights. "There has for years been a strong feeling among suburban people, especially those of the southeastern and northeastern sections of the District, that they have been discriminated against In Dlstrtot affairs In favor of the northwestern sec tion," aald Mr. Price.
