debts she would be better off without the islands. Looking to the commercial and strategical value of the Philip
pines, we should not be surprised at resistance on the part of some of the powers. Moreover, it is evident that the
inhabitants will not calmly acquiesce in American annexation."
The Frankfurter Zeitung thinks that after the elections the American commissioners are likely to make some
concessions, since the chief question is rather how to conquer the Philippine islands from the inhabitants than how
to overcome Spanish resistance.
The Vienna correspondent of the Daily Telegraph says: "The Austrian cabinet considers an English pro
tectorate of the Philippines tho only solution of the question."
MANILA, P. 1., Nov. 2. —The health of the troops here at present is far from being good, notwithstanding the
statements of the medical department to the contrary. At Cavite the conditions are very bad. There have been
over forty deaths there since September 1, mostly from typhoid fever. One-third of the officers of the Montana
voulnteer regiment arc on the sick list, including the colonel and lieutenant-colonel, who arc unfit for duty. In one
battery alone over 75 per cent of the men stationed there have been on the sick list within a month, the officers being
affected as well as the privates. The hospital accommodation! there are inadequate. The supply of medicines
was exhausted at one time,, and for days there was nothing medicinally to administer to the patients. The place
is unhealthy at best. The men are quartered on ground floors where it is damp, and in this country especially con
ducive to illness. Many of thet men worked themselves ill during the process of cleaning Cavite, but now that
the sanitary conditions are being looked after an improved record will doubtless follow.
In Manila the conditions are better. The men are fairly well quartered and nre being given better accommo
dations as fast as possible, and it will not now be long before all reason for complaint will have passed. Much of the
sickness of the past can be traced to the overcrowding of the men while proper quarters were being prepared
Malarial is the most common of the diseases among the troops. A malarial condition is the natural re
sult of the climate and sanitary conditions which prevail. Typhoid fever has also developed to a serious degree.
The average number of sick in the hospitals, in addition to the number of men relieved from duty by order of the
physicians, is 800. The new eases reported to the hospital daily average about forty cases.
There have been twelve eases of smallpox among the soldiers soi far, six of which have proved fatal. The
regimental physicians have advised the whitewashing of the soldiers' quarters and the liberal use of corrosive sub
limate, but there is not sufficient lime or corrosive sublimate, or even a good substitute lo be had. Smallpox is
always prevalent among the natives, many having it as children. The doctors are doing everything possible to
confine it among the natives. No cases have been reported for the past five days. The hospitals, which in the past
have been nothing more than death traps, are being put into sanitary condition. They are abundantly supplied
with food and medicines, which are now obtainable at a moment's notice. The Red Cross has been grossly mis
managed, and has been of little assistance.
Colonel Lippincott has steadfastly refused to give out any information to the press from his office up to today,
and only then through General Otis. Colonel Lippincott said: "With cooler weather a radical improvement is looked
General Otis recently inspected one of the hospitals —the Convent hospital, established since the capitulation
of Manila —and said it was the finest hospital he had ever visited.
For the three months ending October Ist, the number of deaths' in this army from all causes number four
officers and eighty-three enlisted men.
Aguinaldo, the insurgent chief, has issued a proclamation pointing out that although the stringent orders
previously issued by him have generally been obeyed, a few Filippinos have refused obedience and offended in vari
ous ways, and he now warns all such that they are liable to be declared outlaws and to incur the extreme penalty.
The reference is apparently to the anti-American Filippinos.
In another proclamation issued simultaneously, Aguinaldo allows all armed foreigners except Spaniards to
travel in Philippine territory, but all such, are forbidden to approach the fortifications or take photographs of de
fensive works.
The United States cruiser Charleston has started north for a month's cruise.

• SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 2. —The Fifty-first lowa regiment, Colonel John Soper commanding, will embark

Congressman Barlow has won many votes
since his campaign began in this county.
Barlow lias been a misjudged man. The im
pression lias been permitted to get abroad
that he is a scamp and an ignoramus. Be
cause he is a plain farmer and has not the
eloquence of a Webster, people who have
superficial notions and judge a man by the
clothes he wears pronounced him an ignora
mus. Because he wrote two or three foolish
letters and indulged in some questionable
language and bad grammar, the same class oi
people and his political enemies have called
him a scamp.
These are the only charges made against
Barlow, save that he packed the mails in
the interests of the railroad. This latter
charge is denied by Barlow. There is no evi
dence to substantiate it, and, in fine, it is a
lie, gotten up for campaign purposes. Its
falsity is apparent, because not a scintilla of
evidence has been produced to prove it. Con
gressman Loud, Republican, completely ex
onerates Barlow from having stuffed the
mails in the interests of any railroad or at
all. Republican campaign prevaricators who
slander Barlow with the unjust and un
founded accusation that he stuffed the mails
are respectfully notified that if the charge
be true, then their own Republican congress
man, Loud, is also an unnecessary liar,
which no one believes he is.
The whole hue and cry against Barlow
must arise, therefore, from the fact that he
is a farmer and that he wrote some "business
opportunities" letters.
A complete answer to such silly campaign
thunder is found in Barlow's record. For
the last two years lie has represented this
district in congress, and his enemies have
not been able to point to one act of his that
is subject to just criticism. His successful
labors in behalf of San Pedro harbor, for a
national forest reservation, and many other
necessary public improvements, not to men
tion his untiring and successful efforts in
behalf of the old soldiers in securing for
them pensions and needed improvements
and better accommodations at the soldiers'

"Business opportunities!" in the hope of
blinding the public to the record of one of
the most faithful and successful public ser
vants who ever represented this district, and
by this means electing as his successor a
wall flower, a cipher, a man who claims to
be ornamental, if not useful.
Barlow is a farmer. No one disputes this.
Waters is a retired gentleman. He lives
among the "400" of Los Angeles. He has his
bobtail horses, his drags, his coachman and
his servants galore. He rides in state, lives
in a palace, apes everything English, and
feeds on the fads of fashion. In fact, Waters
is a dude, or, rather, was a dude up to the
time his campaign committee politely told
him that he must mend his dudish ways or
prepare for defeat. He tried to mend them,
but he was as successful as was the jackass
in the fable who covered his anatomy with
a lion's skin, in the hope of making people
believe he was a real lion. But the poor
jack forgot to cover his ears and was de
tected in the fraud.
As between Barlow, the farmer, and Wa
ters, the dude —as between Barlow, the true
and tried congressman, and Waters, the ex
perienced judge of bobtailed horses and thor
oughbred dogs—the voters of this district
must choose; but we have no hesitation in
saying that, while the accomplishments of
the latter may be useful in special and iso
lated cases, the technical knowledge sur
rounding these subjects would not material
ly assist in securing a pension for an old sol
dier nor promote the cause of San Pedro
harbor. Barlow is a farmer, but he has the
material in him of which successful public
servants are made. His two years' service in
congress has proved he is competent to serve
this district, and he will be able to serve the
people still better if re-elected for another
A great deal has been said about Barlow's
"business opportunities." In one of his
letters to his political Judas Barlow makes
use of these words, and out of this molehill
his enemies have made a mountain—of fuss
and fuss only. His enemies charge that Bar
low had in mind the prostitution of his of
fice for illegitimate gains. The letter, taken
as a whole, is not susceptible of such con-.
struction. And, whatever its meaning may
be to those who pervert matters and words
to suit their theories, the fact remains that
these same enemies, while wasting their time
talking about ''business opportunities," have
not been able to locate one "opportunity"
in which his conduct as a private citizen or
as a public official is the subject of just
criticism. CIVIS.
