In the Philippine dealt With From the Military V Viewpoint. Washington, Dec. 7. The war de partment has made public the first annual report of Major General Auna R. Chaffee, military governor of the Philippine Islands. General Chaffee oma up the situation from a military point of view by stating that the prov ince of Batangas and Laguna in Lu ton and the islands of Samar, Min doro, Cebu and Bohol constitute the vea now disturbed by any embodied force of insurgents. lie says that to tne physical character of the country, o the nature of the warfare of the rebels, who are amigo and foe in the -selfsame hour, to the humanity of the troops which is taken advantage of by the rebels and the inhabitants who sympathize with them, and to the fear of assassination on the part of the iriendly disposed if they give infor mation to the American forces, is due the prolongation of the guerilla war fare. Commenting upon the plan of gradually replacing military with civil administration General Chaffee says: The withdrawal of interference vitb civil affairs does not contemplate "withdrawal of the troops from their station to any considerable extent on the contrary, this should not be done hastily, and when undertaken should te gradual and more in the nature of concentration than reduction of force or abandonment of any considerable area of territory." lie therefore recommends that there be no further material reduction of troops before January, 1903. The civil governments which are being organ ized provincial and municipal Gen eral Chaffee says are both new and untried, and there is but one certain and reliable method of ascertaining the progress of the Filipinos in self " .government, namely, observation by the army. On the subject of the mil-- ltary-sorernmentT0ltine,8Uj ur Ma- nila. General Chaffee says: -In the government of Manila for three years, if the military have done not L In; more, it is everywhere appar ent that an excellent foundation has been laid and a turbulent and hostile community brought to observe the laws and individually be orderly; this has been done witnout undue harsh ness or severity of treatment of the . inhabitants." General Chaffee devotes a good part of his report to the terrible disaster which befell Company C, Ninth infan try, at Balangiga. Samar, and which .be says was "largely due to overcon .ndence in assumed pacified conditions, and in a people who to a great extent as yet are strangers to and unappre ciative of our humane and personal liberty, beliefs and actions.
