Admiral Dewey wants no Recep

He is Coming Home to Rest and not to Adver.
tlse Himself No Demonstrations for Him
will Please the Sensible Old Admiral.
Admiral Dewey, at 1 1 r j K'n yet
terday, in on an Intel view said:
"Nobody is uioie suo;b;e of 111?
kindness of the peoi h wlin li r- ex
landed i n vital ion-, u I do nut aim
for entertainment. My health wih
not stand it at pre;eiii. Two week

"I have the greatest enthusiasm a?
to the future of the Philippines. I
hope to see America's possessions the
key to oriental commerce and civili
zation. The brains of our great coun
try will develop the untold agricul
tural and mineral richness of the
islands. We must never sell them.
Such an action will bririi.' on another
great war. We will never part with
the Phillipines, I am sure, and la
future years the idea that auyuLe
should have seriously suggested it will
be one of the curiosities of history.
"The insurrection is broken. There
will be no more iiard battles, and the
new era for the islands that was tern
porarily delayed by the rising will
soon begin. Agoioajdo and his gen

"TlitOlympia will go home leisurely.
I want all my officers and men to get
the greatest benetlt of all the stops
we make. We will pick our places
with this in mind. They have earned
a rest by a year of steady duty with
out respite. While I am glad to be
going home, I cinnot say good bye to
Manila without regrets. There have
heen many pleasant occurrences
during the months of harassing re sponsibilities
and we will not forget
A dispatch from Hong Kong yester
day, reads: Admiral Dewey shows
great improvement already, Install
ed spaciously at the Peak hotel, with
lofty windows that catch every mouth
fulof wind from the sea, he is losing
much of 'he languor which he wore
when he landed from his blistered
cruiser. It was rest that he needed
rest and cooler air. He is getting
both. Society at the Peak is well
bred. There are no disturbing factors
there. It is here hat the English
officers and their wives, the govern;
ment officials, the rich merchants and
distinguished travelers take refuge
inca the heat and noise of the town.
They all feel a deep interest in the
hero of Manila bay, but they respect
his desire for quiet. He has already
become one of themselves. With the
ease of a polished man of the world,
he dropped into his place in the little
community that really resembles a
house party at an English country
residence. Strangers to that commun
ity cannot intrude upon him, how
ever. The government detectives see
to that. So do the detectives hired
by Consul General Wildman. So do
the swarms of Chinese servants.
If the Filipino junta ever meant
more than bluster by Its hints of
assassination, it has been entirely
cowed by the British police. Howard
Bray, the English confederate of the
insurgents,has been suddenly stricken
dumb. So have his American fellow
schemers. These people received
brusque warning from the authorities
that if they did not behave them
selves they would be treated to a
dizzy surprise. The Filipinos them
selves were similarly cautioned and
they are under close surveillance.
At dusk today when the sea breeze
set in, Admiral Dewey took a walk
along the bluff with Consul Wildman
and they remained out for half an
hour. The victor's bearing was alert
and his voice vigorous.

to the railroad, as the region is diffi

The roads will be impassible in a few

Manila, May 26, 7.40 p.m. Tht
events of the past week have eniplu
sized the need of a much larger army
here wi'.hout which, according to the
best authorities in Manila, It woulu
be attempting the impossible to
expect to establish American suprem
acy in the Phillppine.islands. Most of
the recent fighting has been in terri
tory which the Americans had swept
but which they had been compelled
to abandon because they could not
spare troops to hold it.
The forces commanded by Generals
Mac Arthur and Lawton held two im
portant lines of cemmunication and
commerce, the railroad to. San Fer
nando and the Rio Grande. But
much of the country they have swept,
including scores of the smaller townp,
and some of the larger ones, have
been left uncovered, simply for want
of men to hold them, and the insur
gents haTe returned and are occupy
ing the towns the Americans aban
doued aud are camping in the jungles
and woods outside others, on the
watcu for chances to harass the garri-
ocs and attack scouting parties ot
detached companies with greatei
forces. This is the kind of warfare
they prefer to regular battles.
It appears that the Filipinos who
attacked the Third regiment betweeL
San Miguel and Baliuag were part of
Pio dei Pilar's army. They came
from the south across the mountains.
presumably to meet a wagon train
which Gen. Lawton expected along the
road. They also planned to capture
several large detachments and were
placed in ambush at different points,
tiring from the jungle at a distance ol
200 yards and gave ths Americans one
of the hardest tights experienced Id

more heavily than the Americans in
all the recent encounters. The insur

more to heart than they do the loss of
Foreigners who have arrived here
from the insurgents country, under
the recent order of expulsion, say the
cemeteries in all the towns are filled
with fresh graves. A majority of the

insurgent hospitals are inadequate,
medicines are scares and they have
few surgeons except Spanish captives
who have been impressed.

The Greater America Exposition at
Omaha this year will present many
novel exhibits from the islands of the
sea recently acquired by the United
States. NatiTe tribes and their primi
tive habitations will be transplanted.
Many curious exhibits are being col-1
teoted, the first collection of the kind '
to be shown in the United State. The
Omaha show will run largely to live ;
exhibits, which term comprehends
moving exhibits calculated to attract I
popular interest in their operation. For
all inch exhibits space in the Eirv- j
sition will be free. This feature is to '
be carried to creater lengths than ever !
before. The ijreat structure erected by 1
the Oinalm Exposition last year have
been pure riase-1 and will be filled with
live exhibits, showing the process of

The Midway streets of the Greater
America Exposition at Omaha this year
will teem with unique attractions. As
was true of the exposition of 1898 this
section of the forthcoming show will
prove to be the mo.-t powerful magnet
on the grounds. Concessionaires have
already paid in thousands of dollars as
first payment money and nearly a hun
dred applications are now on file await
ing acceptance by the managers. These
if accepted would net the exposition
about $f0,000. The Midway this year,
however, will be far different in all par

is a new deal all around.

of Omaha's Trans-Mississippi and In

ident of the United States down to the
humblest visitor who was there last
year all will tell you that not only as an
exhibition, but in a financial success, it
had no parallel in the history of the
country. And it was done in the face of
all sorts of difficulties, arising in a want
of confidence, in enterprise aud in a feel

mean that we propose to represent in
the coming Exposition all new acquisi

the war with Spain and by annexation,
as in the case of Hawaii. We propose
to produce on the Exposition grounds
and in the splendid buildings, which
are in perfect order at Omaha, repre
sentatives of these races, their huts,
products, weapons and everything that
represent them as peoples. We pro
pose, moreover, to repeat the Indian

last year, by gathering representatives
