KILL EVERYTHING ABOVE TEN
A Bamplo of Civilization Brought by
tho Americans to tho Philippines
If nny doubt oxlBted about tho truth
of tho stories told of tho savago treat-
niant of tho Filipinos by officers and

bo dispelled by the rovolatlons by Ma
jor Littleton W T Waller of tho Ma
rino Corps who is being tried at Ma
nila before a court martial on chargoa
of having executed natives of Samar
without trial Major Waller doesnt
tlony tho charges but defends himself
by pleading that ho waB acting undor
orders of his superior officer General
Smith who had command of tho Do-
partment of Samar
Hero is an extract from tho testi
mony of Major Waller as cabled from
Manila
Tho Major said denoral Smith in
structed him to kill and burn said
that the moro ho hilled and burned the
bettor pleased tho Gcnoral would bo
that it was no tlmo to take prisoners
and that he was to make Samar a
howling wilderness
Major Waller asked General Smith
to define tho age limit for killing and
the General replied Everything over
ten
That General Smith Issued tho order
to kill everything over ton wo know
not only on tho assertion of tho Major
of Marines now on trial In Manila but
also from the testimony of Captain
David D Portor Captain Hiram I
Bearso and Lieutenant Frank Hclford
all of the Marino Corps With the tes
timony of thcso witnesses beforo us
we cannot doubt that an American
Gcnoral has ordered a human battue
Ho told his subordinates that the more
killing and the moro burning they did
tho bettor he would bo pleased as ho
had resolved to make Samar a howl
ing wilderness
Smiths guilt lias been proven so
conclusively that tho War Department
at Washington does not deny tho
charges against him but Intimates
that the situation in Samar in a meas
ure justified a man holding a commis
sion as a United States officer in act
ing like an Apache chief Adjutant
General Corbln in an Interview which
appears in tho New York Herald is
reported as saying General Smith
concluded that measures wero neces
sary to teach tho Samar natives that
order must bo established and main
tained
This is the semi official defonso of
Smiths order to kill everything ovor
ten Tho whole adult population waB
to bo killed off to teach the Samar
natives to quoto tho languago of Ad
jutant General Corbin that ordor
must bo established and maintained
In a gcnoral order ho told his com
mand that every native whethor In
arms or living in tho pueblos or bar
rios will bo regarded and treated as
an oncmy Lest somo of his subordi
nates might bo disposed to show re
spect for tho sacred character of tho
priesthood Smith oxpressly enjolnod
upon thorn to mako no oxcoptlous in
favor of tho natlvo priests Hflro aro
his instructions as to how they should
be treated
If tho ovldonco Is sufficient they
will bo tried by tho proper court If
there is not suttlciont ovldonco to con
vict thoy will bo arrested and confin
ed as a military necessity and hold as
prlsonors of war until roleasod by or
dors from thoso headquarters
Offlcors in command of stations will
not hesitate thoroforo to an eat and
detain individuals whom they have
good reason to suspect are aiding tho
Insurrection oven whon positive ovl
donco is lacking
It will bo seen from thoso instruc
tions that Catholic priests somo of
whom have grown gray In tho sorvico
of thoir flocks aro to bo imprisoned
simply becauso thoy aro priests Dont
Lothcr about ovldonco Smith says to
subordinates but arrest and Imprison
