for April fell Sift, I0C.000 below
those for March, while the expenditures

This great difference does not indicate,

The receipts for March were
Increased by tho payment to tho

while thu expenditures for
April were Increased by the drawing
of the warrants for the payment of

to destroy the American influence
In that section. ThcNlc.iragu.ins hold
the American merchants responsible
fur lieyes' rebellion. They have
determined, according to the reports re-received,
to impose upon these American
merchants the entire expense to
which the government was put In repressing
the rebellion, amountitic to
about SfiOO.000. This could not be done
directly without a breach of Interna
tional law, hence the attempt wad
made to collect a largo part of It

for a second payment upon Imports

that this government of Iteyes was

In proof of this it is shown that

Mates government. It is realized
now more strongly than at any other
period that the capacity of the Filipinos
for self-government is an undetermined
question. The United
statcs government is willing to
accord the uatict an opportunity
to test their abilities, for the
Philippine commission proposes to
allow them almost complete control of
their local affairs, exercising only
such supervision through the United
Mates military as may be necessary to
1,'uard against the consequences of mistakes
on the part of the native
and provincial ofliclals in
their first experiment at self-govern
Tlie experiment is already In progress
at some points. In the Philippines
outside tho island of hu.ou,
where the United Statcsauthories have
hoisted the Hag and assumed sovereignty,
they have continued
local governments under natlvo
direction. So far as the reports
indicate, these experiments are working
well and promise to have a good
influence In shaping the attitude toward
tho United States of a

which has been suspicious of our intentions.
