"MAN TLA, October 6.?Francis Burton Harrison of New York, the newly appointed Governor General of the Philippines. arrived here today on boarrl the steamship Manchuria. He was greeted on his arrival by a crowd of several thousands of people, many of w horn had come from the provinces. Traffic in the streets of the city was brought to a standstill by the crowds. Several of the welcoming delegations were accompanied by bands. The Manchuria was met down the harbor by a flotilla of steam launches, one of which took out Newton W. Gilbert of Fort Wayne, Ind., the vice governor. llov Gen. Harrison on landinsr drove from the pier by a roundabout routeto the Luneta. where he delivered his inaugural address. Speaks for President Wilson. The governor general's address embodied instructions received from President Wilson through Secretary Garrison, stating broadly the administration's policy toward the Philippines. The instructions declared that every step would be taken with a view to the ultimate independence of the islands. Also it was announced that the first step to be taken will be to give native citizens the majority in the appointive commission and thus in both branches of the Philippine legislature. Substance of Instructions. The instructions of the American government as thus embodied in the governor general's address were as follows: "We regard ourselves as trustees, acting not for the advantage of the United States, but for the benefit of the people of the Philippine Islands. Every step we take will be taken with a view to the ultimate independence of the islands and as a preparation for that independence, and we hope to move toward that end as rapidly as the safety and the permanent interests of the islands will permit. After each step taken experience will guide us to the next. Promise of Immediate Action. "The administration will take one step at ones. It will fin to tiie native citizens of the islands a majority In the appointive commission and thus (n the upper as well as in the lower house of the legislature. ' "It will do this in the confident hope and expectation that immediate proof will thereby be given in the action of the commission under the new arrangement of the political capacity of those native citizens who have already f.-ome forward to represent and lead * their people in affairs." In Accord With President's Policy. Governor General Harrison added: "With President Wilson's sentiments and policy I am in complete accord. Within the scope of my office I shall do my utmost to aid in the fulfillment of our promises, and I am confident we shall thereby hasten the coming day of independence. "For ourselves we confidently expect of you that dignity of bearing and selfrestraint which are the outward evidences of the dally increasing national consciousness. "I remind you that we are for the present responsible before the world for your welfare and progress. Until your independence is complete we shall demand unremitting recognition of our sovereignty. "You are on trial before an International tribunal and we eagerly await convincing proof that you are capable of establishing a stable government ? not necessarily a reproduction of our Institutions. but one which will guarantee complete security for life, liberty and property. Asks for Support of Citizens. I call upon every good citizen, native and-foreign, lor assistance and support. We place within your reach the instruments of redemption. The door of opportunity stands open and the event, under Providence, is in your hands." Xanuel Quezon, Filipino delegate to Oengress. translated the inaugural address. EJvsry reference to independence was greeted with annlsuse. Dovornnr General and Mrs. Harrison then held an Informal reception, and afterward drove te the palace in the suburb of Malacanan. An inaugural hall Is to he given tonight in the marble hall, and on Wednesday a popular banquet. Reception Enthusiastic. Secretary Harrison of the War Department this morning received the following cablegram from Governor General Harrison at Manila"Arrived after pleasant voyage. The reception?by what I am informed wag an unparalleled gathering of the peoifte on the Dupeta?of the President's announcement in regard to commission and general policy for the fu'ure was most enthusiastic." Plan to Revise the Commission. The composition of the Philippine commission at present is such as to make jjo*.-ibis i speedy execution of the President's plan for the transfer of the control of that body to the Filipinos. Qwlng to the rPKlEtia tfrtfl n# Pa?t?miaai ? v? vviMUitogiVIICi? and Worcester recently, the membership of the commlaslon 1b made up of three Americana and four Filipino*, namely: Americans?

Gregorlc \raneta, Rafael Palma and Juan Sumulong. It irthe intention of the administration to till the vacancies caused by the Klliot and Worcester resignations by the appointment of two Americans In the course ef a few days, but the apparent majority thus given that side Is to be counteracted by the retirement, in favor of the Filipinos, of the present American members. There will thus be left only the governor general in a position to exercise the veto nower over such acts of the Philippine assembly as appear to he objectionable to the President, and when, in due course he gives place to a native, the final step will have been taken toward Philippin? autonomy.

He received the necessary two-thirds votes of the united houses of parliament on the third ballot. Of the 850 members of the house of representatives and senate. 759 were in attendance. * On the final' ballot Yuan Shi Kai received 507 votes, only one more tl^an the. necessary two-thirds. Li' Yuen Heng, provisional vice' president, received 179 votes. The other ballots were scattered among twenty minor candidates. Li Yuen Heng, it was declared, bad asserted that he would not take the nomination. , > , t * The announcement of the result was received with enthusiasm. The proceedings lasted twelve hours. The vote on the first ballot was: Yuan Shi Kal, 471; LI Yuen Heng, 153; necessary to a choice, 506. The remainder of the 73? ballots were scattered among twenty other candidates. The casting of a second ballot was ordered at once. The constitution of the republic provides that at least two-thirds of the members of parliament present must cast their votes for a candidate in order to accomplish his election. It also calls for the presence at a presidential election of three-fourths of the members of both houses. Great Interest in Election. In all parts of the country the greatest interest was manifested in today's proceedings, the first presidential election in the history of the new republic. When the united houses of parliament came together this morning the register recorded that 750 representatives were present. The first ballot took a considerable time, owing to the fact that the deputies and senators were not familiar with the proceedings. The candidates included, besides Provinslonal President Yuan Shi Kal, Tsal Heng, a "black" horse candidate; Dr. Wu-ting Fang, forindt Chinese minister at Washington, and Dr. Sun Yat Sen, leader of the republican movement. The second ballot resulted in a vote of 407 for Yuan 8hi Kai and ltt! for Li Yuen Heng. A third ballot was therefore necessary. Before the third ballot was taken LI Yuen Heng, who is the provisional vice president, declared that he would not accept a nomination for the presidency. Held Important $oets.

It was said again today that it wae doubtful whether Snodgrass, the Giants' eenterfielder, who is suffering with a "charleyhorse." would be able to take part in the series. Doyle's injured shoulder has completely recovered, however, and it Is certain that he will be in the opening game. If Snodgrass does nol play it is probable that Shafer will take his place in the field and Herzog will gc to third base. Generally speaking, betting on the series has been light. Some few big beta have been recorded, but neither team car be called the favorite, and it was said thai the wagering would be the smallest in recent years.

Fot these they were willing to take $90 fot [ the series of three games. The seats ' offered at this price were those In the [ upper grand stand, marked $8 each. Seats to the opening game tomorrow were quoted, for delivery l&te this afternoon or tonight, at $17 to $18. Even at these figures tickets were scarce. One spectator offered six seats together for $$00 for the three games. Seoretary Foster of the New York base ball club said every precaution had been taken against speculators and that none had bought tickets so far as he knew. A current repdrt was to the effect that l & group of New York politicians had obtained In some way a bunch of tickets and placed them In the speculators' hands.' President Hempstead of the New York club offered today to give $?uU> to charity if any person could prove that the ciub or any one connected with it in the sale of tickets, had made a dollar by permitting them to fall in speculators' hands.

He will continue to call himself "first chief." He i will form a provisional cabinet, but the heads of the different departments will call themselves chiefs instead of minisl ters.
