tration in the Philippines

Official Orders in the Campaign of General Smith in
Samar Whenever There Was Harshness Toward the
Natives There Was Warrant in the Conditions For It.
Where Wrong Was Done by Soldiers It Was Punished

Washington, November 14. The an
nual report of Major General Adna R.
Chaffee just made public closes with
September 30, the date when he relin
quished the command of the division
of the Philippines. The report covers
thccampaign of General J. H. Smith
in Samar, refers to some friction that
occurred between the civil and military
authorities regarding Leyle. and dis
cusses the actions of various officers
and the work of the army In the sup
pression of recent insurrections. Gen
eral Chaffee warmly defends the offi
cers and assumes full responsibility
for all that was done under official or
ders. He says the various Filipino
bands are of little military importance
and In time can be handled by the In
sular constabulary.
Speaking of the campaign in Samar,
General Chaffee says he find3 nothing
in the written instructions which wa-:
not warranted by the conditions there
to be overcome. General Chaffee ?ays
the formation of concentration camps
was necessary to suppress the insurrec
tion In the provinces of Butangas, La
guna r.nd Tayr.bas. He asserts thac
the civil authorities in some instances
iiided the insurrectionists, and he says
it was found necessary to arrest and
confine 3'0 or 400 of the intelligent clasn
In order to remove the .Influence of the
masters over the masse3 of the popu
lation. General Ch-ffee requests thi re
moval cf all censure that has been
passedpubliely upon General Bell rv
garding orders, circulars and instruc
tions which he Issued while putting
down the insurrection.
An interesting feature of General
c'haffee's leport relates to the More",
in Mindanao ar.d Jolo. He says it will
require time, tact and patience to cs
tiblish United States authority over c'.
the Moro settlements.
Expressed in a Great Variety cf
New Orleans, November 14. Another
day was devoted by the American Fed
eration of Labor to work preparatory
for the actual duties of the convention.
Reports of committees and the intro
duction of resolutions took up all of
th? sessions. No action was taken on
tny of the resolutions. Eighty-seven
resolutions were submitted. Many of
them related to minor points of the or
ganization, to requests thp.t various
firms be placed upon the "unfair list"
and to claims of jurisdiction.
Outside cf these the following are
the resolutions of chief interest:
"That the United States government
be asked to return to Porto Rico thos?
people who were induced to leave that
island for Hawaii under fake promises
of better industrial conditions."
"That any man who shall have
reached the age of sixty years, who is
a naturalized citizen and has lived
twenty-one years in this country, and
whose average annual Income has been
less than $1,000 per annum, be given a

In conclusion General Chaffee make

which is in the nature of a reply t-j

Advice That Was Worth It.
"I was once a slave to the coffee
habit and became almost a confirmed
invalid by drinking it," says Mr. C. H.
Aitken of Whiting. N. J.
"I tried to break away from coffee
but every time I stopped I suffered
from severe sick headaches and for re
lief went back to coffee again, only in
the end to suffer from extreme nervous
ness and severe bilious attacks.
"I became so irritable that I made
life miserable for my family and my
self. Finally I went to New York to
consult a specialist. After thoroughly
questioning and examining me, he said
I must give up drinking coffee as it had
gieatly undermined my health, and he
further said that coffee killed more
people than rum. I laughed at him,
but he said it was the truth and that
In his practice he had seen many evil
effects from coffee drinking.
"He said it was of no use to prescribe
for me. unless I gave up coffee, and
recommended that I use Postum Food
Coffee, which he highly recommended.
He charged $12 for his advice, which I
thought rather high priced at that
time, but today I think it very cheap.
I bought several packages of Postum
frcm the grocer and it was the best
day's work I ever did for myself.
"I had a pot of Postum made for my
supper that night: that was in the
spring of 1S!)8 and I have drank it ever
since with the best of results to my
health. The sick headache and ner
vousness I suffered from drinking cof
fee have entirely gone; I am never
bilious and have increased In weight;
I have a happier disposition and am
much more agreeable company to my
family and friends."

Honor of the Killing
Notwithstanding an Elaborate Plan
That the Tirst Capture Should
Fall to H:m -He Disregarded an
Old fear Hunter's Advice.
Smedes, Miss., November 14. A clean
black bear which weighs 235 pounds is
hanging up at th? president's camp on
Little Sunflower, but, to the regret of
all the members of the party, the first
trophy of the hunt did not fall to the
president's rifle. The bear's trail was
struck by hounds soon after the party
started this morning. As eoon as the
dogs gave tongue the president and
his guides plunged through th3 dense
underbrush in pursuit. Within a few
minutes the dogs showed the direction
the quarry was taking, and Hoka
Collier, with the instinct or an old
bear hunter, immediately made up his
mind as to where the animal would
come out.
To save the president needless hard
riding through the brush he directed
Mr. Ftote to take the president along
the trail to a certain cut-off. This
was done and the president and Mr.
Foote rede to the assigned station. On
the way several swamp deer were
jumped, but no effort was made to get
a shot at them. For several hours
the president and Foote waited. The
trail of the bear carried the yelping
hounds cut of hearing and shortly af
ter noon Fcote abandoned hope that
the quarry would come back their way,
and he and the president returned to
camp for lunch.
Had they remained the president
would have had a shot, as the bear,
with the pack cf hounds at its heels,
crossed almost the exact spot which
Ilnke had Indicated. About a mile
beyond this point the bear exhausted
by his long race, ran into a water
hole and turned upon the dogs. They
were all over him in an intsant. The
poor beast was too exhausted to make
much of a fight, but he grubbed one
of the hounds by the neck and crushed
through its spine, killing it instantly.
As the bear was making a swipe with
its paw at another dog Hoke Collier
jumped from his horse and, clubbing
his rille, knocked the bear over the
head with a blow.
Meantime he blew his horn in token
that the quarry had been brought to
Lay. A messenger was sent back for
the president. Then Hoke Collier roped
the bear and tied him to a tree. When
the president arrired he would neither
shoot it nor permit it to be shot. "Put
it c ut of Us misery." said he to Parker
and the latter ended its life with a
knife. On the way to camp with the
dead bear the dogs struck a fresh
trail, and the president, Foote, Man
gum, Secretary Cortelyou and Dr. Lnng
followed It. The Associated Press
corresjiondent arrived at the camp
just as Hoke Collier with the bear
slung across his horse's haunches came
"Had the colonel remained where I
put him." said the aggrieved Hoke, "he
would have clone got this here one.".
Fish and Parker returned to camp,
but at dark when the Associated Press
correspondent left there was no sign
of the president, and some anxiety was
manifested less the president in his
enthusiasm would get too far away and
be forced to sleep on the trail.

Boston, Ncvmber 14. The Central
National bank, a small institution com

not open its doors today because of an
order from the comptroller of cur
rency, who had placed National Bank
E?:amir.er W. Neal over it as tempor
ary receiver. Impaired asset3 were
given as the first reason o failure.
The incident did not produce any flurry
in financial circles, as the closing of
the bank through liquidation by Elliott
National bank was looked for and such
liquidation it was supposed, had com
The incident which precipitated the
failure was the rejection of a consid
erable portion of the Central bank's
assets by President Burrage of the
Elliott bank, who was scrutinizing
them preparatory to taking them to
the bank for liquidation. Another
portion of assets is known to have
been acceptable, and the action of
President Burrage and the ' Elliott
bank directorate in refusing to liquid
ate the bank was unexpected.
On Wednesday sales of th Central's
stock dropped $15 from par and yestcr

like c2,000.000. Later in the day the

of other banks are of the opinion that

Strike Commission Has Resumed
Its Investigation
The Distinguishing Feature of the Day's Proceedings Was
an Effort on the Part of the Attorneys for the Coal
Companies to Embarrass Mr. Mitchell and to Bring
From His Lips a Statement That the Miners'
Union Is Too Irresponsible to Be Dealt With The
Status of the Non-Union Miners in the Investigation.
Scranton, Pa., November 14. The an
thracite coal strike commission ap
pointed by President Roosevelt to ar
bitrate the differences existing between
the mine workers of the hard coal fields
of Pennsylvania and their employers
today began hearing testimony by
which it will determine whether or not
the workmen are receiving fair and
just wages for their labor and whether
their conditions should not be im
proved. The star witness for the miners
President John Mitchell took the stand
in the forenoon, and when the commis
sion adjourned at 4 o'clock in the after
noon he was still under a fire of cross
examination by David W. Wlllcox,
general counsel for the Delaware and
Hudson company. It was a trying day
for the miners' leader, but he seemed to
stand the test well. The heaviest fire
of cross-questions aimed at him was
in the afternoon session, and when th
hour of adjournment was reached Will
cox was still propounding questions
and testing Mitchell's memory.
The ojening of the sessions was a
rotable day in the. annals of law in the
upper anthracite region. Such an ar
ray of lawyers had never been seen in
this part of the state, and it is doubtful
whether so many attorneys were ever
on one side of a case in this state as
were present in the interests of the coal
companies today. Ranged around three
tables in front of the seven commis
sioners were no less than thirty law
yers, twenty-four of whom were look
ing after the -interests of the mine
owners. In addition to these there
were many members, of the bar pres
ent who came merely to look on.
The courtroom at both sessions was
packed almost to suffocation and scores
of persons were unable to gain admit
tance. Judge Gray, as chairman of ths
commission, being versed in court pro
ceedings and in law, was the only
spokesman for the commission. He at
times asked questions, and at the Very
close of the afternoon session directed
a query at Mitchell which Willcox had
been leading up to for some time. The
cliiirman asked Mr. Mitchell whether
his organization approved 1 the act of
withdrawing from or denying the nec
essaries of life to those who had of
fended the organization, and he re
' I should say, emphatically no."
During the day Willcox asked Mr
Mitchell many questions as to the poli
cles of the union, the method of calling
strikes, ability of the union to main
tain discipline and prevent the mem
bers of the union from violating th'
law, and also as to the liability of the
union breaking contracts. It was ap
parent to many of those present who
understood the situation that Willcox's
object was to attempt to prove by
Mitchell's own testimony that the con
tention of the companies that the
miners' union was an irresponsible or
ganization and that trade agreements
therefore could not be safely entered
into, were well founded. During tho
hearing the statement was brought out
for the first time since the late strike
was begun that the union had disbursed
$1,500,000 among the union and non
union men who were on a strike.
One of the questions which came up
before the commission was the advis
ability of hearing counsel on behalf of
the non-union men who remained at
work during the strike. Attorney John
T. Lenahan, one of the attorneys for
the non-union men, asked the commis
sion what his status before the arbitra
tors was. Judge Gray Informed him
that the question would be taken un
der consideration and an ansuer would
probably be given him tomorrow.
Mitchell, before taking the witness
stand in the forenoon, presented the
miners' side of the case in a six thou
sand word statement. It took him
forty minutes to read his address, and

he was listened to by the commissioner

will be on the stand all day tomorrow
and probably longer.
It Is the intention of the miners next
to call on Rev. Peter Roberts of Ma-
hanoy City, who has intimate knowl
edge of anthracite mining and is the
author of a book on the subject. Dur
ing the hearing all the attorneys took
copious notes, and It looks as if the in
vestigation would be long drawn out
unless some arrangement for curtailing
the cross-examination of witnesses la
agreed upon.
Topeka, Kan., November 14. Sante
Fe engineers, firemen and switchmen
