In the Philippines and its Effect

WASHINGTON, April 4.?War do- i
uartment officials look. UDon tho an- \
proach of the wet season In the Philip- ~
pines as likely to be an important, If cr
not a decisive factor, In determining fl0
the character of:the military move- 1)1
monts during the next six months. This
period of rain and storms is no new cc
and untried danger, for the United tr
States'troops were in the trenches P1
nround Manila through much of the ^
worst part of the wet season last summer.
Major Simpson, chief of the isi
bureau of military information, was
then on the staff of General Greene, J1
and learned from experience how far ta
this wet season affected t,he health and th
comfort of tho men, and retarded military
operations. Generally speaking,
he says the men were up to their knees '
in jnud and water during July and
August, when our tronches were drawn 0f
around Manila. But while this was sli
a great personal inconvenience, it did
not cause any material increase in the
sick rate. About the worst feature' was tr
that the stretches of quagmire made it pr
next to Impossible to execute military ^
movements on a large scale. * ^
The wet season does not begin, as a ac
rule, until June, so that It is about two m
months before its effects will be serlously
felt The present months, April
and May, generally come under the/
head of the hot season, which Just pre- n7
cedes the drenching rains of June. The n
hottest weather is In May, although it
never goes above 100 degrees. Gradually
this merges into tho heavy rains
and violent storms of June, the wet
season lasting for six months. The
season does not come on abruptly, but ]
is a gradual transition, until everything w
Is in a condition of soak. Last
summer, the llrst expedition of pr
United States troops landed about July gc
1, and by that time the wet season was
well under way. The men were sent
into the trenches for twenty-four hours
and then relieved. In this way two
regiments would be moved up every at
morning, and for that day and night c
would stand In the knee-deep rain and b_
mud. It would have beep dilllcult, if
not impossible, to have kept .troops ex- q
posed to such conditions 'fot any extreme
time. '
Tho Astor battery was one of the p.
bodies serving during the- part of the ,
rainy season. Captain March, one of
the officers of the battery, was here
recently, and in speaking of the sick ^
rate during the rainy season, said that
it was kept down to four per cent. This U1
i~... - ? -
iutt, cvcupuiiuer lavorablc
circumstances, and Sh taken to
offset some of the serious reports as
to the effect" of the rainy!season. This ^
low sick rate is in part attributed to J13
the strict sanitation enjoined upon the
American forces. Malaria and typhoid "e
abounds, so that our troops were made
to drink boiled water. Major Simpson "J*
says that at no time did the malaria *
or typhoid assume an epidemic form. sn
It is the general belief that General t*'
Otis will complete his present cam- lb.
palgri before the < wet season opens, and 3-1
conftho his efforts after that to holding
the ground already won. keeping up po
communication, protecting.his Hanks 5,3
and waiting for tlie dry season to give gr
him another period of active opera- er,
tion. W
Republicans Succcssful?Little Gen- 14
era! Political Change. ro;
DETROIT, Mich., April 4.?Revised JQa
estimates of election results, based on n\
incomplete returns from nearly all the as
counties in Michigan, place Judge i
Grant's plurality for supreme court ^
justice at 25,000 in round numbers. He ^h
lias probably run but little behind the (
Republican candidates for university fir
regents. In Detroit. Judge Grant ran ^
heavily behind his ticket, and lost the j0,
city by nearly 7,000 and the county by go
5,000. The Union Labor movement to
against Grant, however, gained little *
impetus in the smaller cities, and he linearly
held his own through the state 11
at large. Fully two-thirds of the clr- J
cult judges elected in the thirty-six judicial
districts of the state are Itepuh- As
licans. The fine weather did not bring lb!
out as large a vote as anticipated In lb;
any section. J
It is now certain that of the five clo
Judges elected to the circuit bench in 5
Detroit, three are Republicans, and bb
arc reelected. Judge Hosmer, (Dern), ?1
who was re-elected, received the larg- S
est majority, and the vote from- the adjoining
townships indicate also the 2,
election of I'ound, (Dem.), by a very 2-1
close majority. The two new judges of do
the recorder's court are Democrats, do
Detroit and the other large cities
of the state, with the Pingrec feature
eliminated from the contests, show '
Democratic gains. Otherwise the state P**
shows little normal political change. cr<

Stock trading to-day was very, sensitive
end moved Irregularly. After a
wild and high opening for many stocks
realizations of active interests and depressing
efforts on the part of professionals
tended to produce recessions,
particularly in the active specialties
which of late have weakened the largest
advances. The traffic agreement between
the Third Avenue and Manhattan
produced a large advance in both
of those properties at the opening,
Third Avenue rising C and Manhattan
3 points. This brought about extensive
realizing and the stocks gradually receded;
Third Avenue losing eight 011 the
day and Manhattan half as much.
Metropolitan lost 3',4, although at one
time It was down 0& on liquidation Induced
by the combination of the rival
companies. Talk of brisker hostilities
in the war left Sugar six points down.
The suit to restrain Brooklyn Transit
from leasing a formal rival traction
company and together with realizing on
Brooklyn Transit's large advance caused
the stock to ease off three points. The
iron and steel shares ended irregularly
changed with Federal and American
Wire down sharply. International Paper
lost 4, and Chicago Gas 3. Excepting
the course, which rose In some
caseB materially, the oeneral railway
list showed little change, -the grangers
being fractionally off. Among the
specialties to-day's strength was
Rubber, Tin-plate, Continental Tobacco
and Long Island, the two last named
rising three and four points respectively.
An advance in plug tobacco prices
was 6ald to be a reason, for the rise In
Continental Tobacco. There was a confusion
of views on the stock exchange.

active Interests, but there was no certainty,
but that part of their former
