FILIPINOS
DISHEARTENED
As a Result of the Recent Con
flicts Near Manila.
THE OUTPOSTS FIRED UPON
Gen. Otis Will Work Under the Direc
tlons ol Admiral Dewey—
Vessels on the Way.
New York, March 3.—A dispatch to the
Herald from Manila says: It is rumored
here that a steamer with 20.000 stands of
arms and ammunition which were bound
for the Philippines lias been seized in
Japanese waters by the Japanese authori
ties.
Aguinaldo's army is disheartened as
the result of the recent actions. Many
companies of the insurgents have retired
because their officers skulk and won't
lead their men.
The latest news from Cebu is good. The
natives are returning to the town. The
coolies are now willing to work at reason
able wages. Under the native govern
ment they asked double pay. Vessels are
now loading and business has been re
sumed.
The influential natives of the islands of
Malate and Ticoa request Gen. Otis to
send troops there. They say that 200 men
could easily subdue the rebels. The in
habitants are peaceable. They are dis
gusted with the extortions of three suc
cessive native governors. The two islands
contain 80,000 head of cattle which con
stitutes the food supply of the rebel army
of the south.
FILIPINOS HOLD
NO PRISONERS

Washington, March 3.—The following
dispatch has been received by Alger in
answer to his inquiry respecting the num
ber of American prisoners held by the
insurgents:
"Manila, March 3.—Secretary of War,
Washington: Insurgents have not taken
or do they hold a single prisoner of war.
They have three soldiers in Malolos, pick
ed up in January, who without permission
went among them near Cavite and Caloo
ean. I am looking after them and pro
viding money. Have captured over 1,500
insurgent soldiers since February 4 and
hold the majority as prisoners of war.
Troops here are in splendid condition.
(Signed) "OTIS."
ADMIRAL DEWEY
WILL REMAIN
New York, March 3.—A.dispatch to the
Herald from Washington says: Admiral
Dewey will remain In command of the
Philippines for, as a full admiral, he will
outrank Gen. Otis.
It is believed, however, that there is no
danger of friction between Admiral
Dewey and Gen. Otis as the latter thor
oughly understands the rights of the ad
miral and will undoubtedly, when the two
services act together, fully consult the
admiral as to the course to be pursued.
As Admiral Dewey will remain afloat for
some months it is expected that he will
immediately take steps for the purchase
of a uniform, distinctive of his new
grade and strictly in accordance, in some
of its features, with the regulation uni
form which he has worn all his life.
Schooner Was Burned
Manila, March 3.—5:10 p. m.—The
United States gunboat Concord has ar
rived here after a week's cruise along the
west coast of the Luzon. The only inci
dent of her trip was the burning of a
schooner loaded with supplies for the
rebels at Dagupan, the terminus of the
railroad. The natives lied and abandoned
the town when the gunboat anchored in
the bay.
Tile Wheeling Sails
Vancouver, B. C., March 3.—The United
States gunboat Wheeling will sail today
for Manila via Honolulu. On arriving at
the Philippines tier commander will re
port to Admiral Dewey for duty. She is
armed with 10 guns, carries 130 men and
is a speedy boat of lier class.
Has SicUn ss on Board
Washington, March 3.—The war depart
ment today received the following
despatch from the transport Sheridan:
"Gibraltar, March 3.—One death,
Private Timothy Bald, Co. F, 12th infan
try; 2S sick, only three serious.''
Outposts t ired Upon
Manila, March 3.-10:15 a. m.—The out
posts beyond San Pedro Macati were fired
upon by the rebels from the walls of a
stone çjiurch. À gunboat advanced 300
yards beyond the line and cleared away
the enemy with Gatling guns. No casual
ties are reported.
Gen. Miller has been ordered to quarter
his troops in Iloilo in the custom house or
other public buildings, and authorized to
make the necessary changes at a cost, not
to exceed $40,000, the same to be met from
the public revenues collected in Iloilo.
Sailed Wltli Supplies
New York, March 3.—The United States
hospital ship Relief passed out from quar
antine today on her long voyage to Ma
nila. The Relief has medical supplies
enough for 25,000 men for a year.
The Sheridan Quarantined
Gibraltar, March 3.—The United States
transport Sheridan, New York for Manila,
is here. Owing to sickness on board the
vessel has been quarantined.
ARMY AND NAVY
REORGANIZATION
New York, March 3.—A dispatch to the
Herald from Washington says: Action
is being taken by the war and navy de
partments to reorganize the services un
der the compromise army bill and the
naval personnel bill. Under the latter bill
the president will send 300 naval nomina
tions to tlie senate tomorrow. Under the
army bill the president is authorized to
appoint five major generals and 19 brig
adier generals of volunteers. It is the pur
pose to continue all those holding the
rank of major general in the Philippines
in that rank, although some of those in
Cuba will have to be reduced to the rank
of brigadier generals. The list of major
generals of the new establishment, be
sides officers of the regular service hold
ing that rank will be Gen. Shafter, com
manding the department of California;
Maj. Gen. Otis, the department of the
Philippines; Maj. Gen. Lawton, en route
to Manila; Maj. Gen. Anderson, com
manding the first division, eighth army
corps, now at Manila; Maj. Gen. Arthur
MacArthur, commanding second division,
eighth army corps, now at Manila.
As a result of the retention of these
officers in their present rank it will be
necessary for the president to direct the
muster out as major generals of Maj.
Gen. Thomas F. Wade, who will return
to his rank of brigadier general in the
regular army; Maj. Gen. H. C. Merriam,
Maj. Gen. James H. Wilson, Maj. Gen.
Fitzhugh Lee, Maj. Gen. Joseph Wheeler,
Maj. Gen. John C. Bates and Maj. Gen.
William Ludlow. Some of these officers
will be appointed brigadier generals. This
is a partial list of the officers who in all
probability will be appointed or retained
as brigadier generals: In Cuba—William
Ludlow, Fitzhugh Lee, James H. Wilson,
Leonard Wood, John C. Bates, L. H. Car
penter, G. W. Davis and K. B. Williston.
In the Philippines—Samuel Overshine,
Irving Hale, H. G. Otis. Charles King,
Robert P. Hughes and C. McReeve.
Under the naval personnel law these
nominations for rear admiral will bo sent
to the senate tomorrow: E. F. McNair,
J. A. Howell, H. L. Howison, Albert
Kautz, George C. Remy, N. II. Farquhar,
J. C. Watson, J. W. Philip, H. E. Robeson,
W. S. Schley, Silas Casey, W. T. Samp
son, B. J. Cornwell, F. J. Higginson. H. F.
Picking, Frederick Rodgers, Louis Kempt
and George W. Sumner.
By the confirmation of Commodore
Schley all talk of his being dropped from
the service as a result of the promotion
of Commodore Higginson will be effect
ually ended. Failure to confirm their
nominations for promotion for gallant
service will result in placing the name of
Rear Admiral Schley ahead of that of
Rear Admiral Sampson, according to
their standing before the war. These offi
cers will be nominated to tie captains:
Chief Engineers W. G. Purler, T. J. Allen,
G. W. Melville, Joseph Trilley, B. A. Rear
iek, A. II. Able, G. J. Burnap, (\ Andrade,
John E. Lowe, Charles J. MaeConnell and
Lewis W. Robinson. Commanders G. W.

ANOTHER BIG
COPPER DEAL
Chicago, March 3.—A special to the Tri
bune from Boston says: The Arcadian
Copper Mining company, through the ef
forts of President Thomas L. Barrage of
Boston, representing the Standard Oil
people, has acquired additional territory
which nearly doubles the present prop
erty and will make the Arcadian the larg
est property in the Lake Superior district.
The company has just secured what are
known as the Old Highland and St.
Mary's Copper properties, together with
various other tracts of land, representing
altogether about 2,100 acres of valuable
mineral territory. By this purchase it
will secure mineral lodes five miles in
length and will be in a position to produce
copper, by doubling Its working plant, at
an estimated low cost of 7Vi cents.
M..ckey Won tlie Case
San Francisco, March 3—The case of
Theodore Fox against Juhn W. Mackey
and the Consolidated California and Vir
ginia company has been decided by the
supreme court in favor of the defend
ants. Fox is a member of a mining com;
pany and Mackey is director of the Ne

Dewey is Admiral
Washington, March 3.—The president
has sent to the senate tlie nomination of
Rear Admiral George Dewey to lie ad
miral of the navy under the act approved
March 2, 1899, and Brig. Gen. Elwell S.
Otis, U. S. A., to be major general by
brevet to rank from February 4, 1899, for
military skill and most distinguished ser
vices in the Philippines. The senate con
firmed Admiral Dewey.
VESSELS CANNOT
BE MANNED NOW
Washington, March 3.—The navy de
partment has put the big double turn ted
monitor Puritan out of commission at
the Norfolk navy yard and it is said at
the navigation bureau that the ship must
be followed by oth rs speedily to the
'great detriment of the plans of the de
partment. The estimates submitte 1 to
congress, based on the minimum require
ments .if the navy,provided for 20,000 sail
ors. Congress cut this down to 15,000.
There are now 18,000 men in the service so
that 3,000 of those must be drop
ped Immediately. That means, ac
cording to the navigation officers, that a
large part of the north Atlantic squadron
must go out of commission. The Asiatic
Squadron cannot be reduced in view of
Dewey's necessities; there is only one
ship, the Philadelphia, on the Paeili
the European and the
tiens have b
mb Atlantic sta- 1
abandoned and there ls :
, . , ,
only left (be north A tlantic squadron as j
material fora cut. The loss ol 3,090 men
means the cut ting in half of this, splcn- |
did home defense squadron. It is pruba
ble that the heavy reduction in the mira- I
her of enlisted men and consequently on !
ships will interfere seriously with the
conduct of the naval maneuve rs this
year, notwithstanding the enormous j
benefit that has been derived from such
drills in the past. Another difficulty is
going to be the impossibility of putting
into condition the new ships as they are
turn' d over to the government by the
builders, simply for want of men to man
them.

Washington, March 3.—The conferees
on ilie river and harbor bill have prac

direction of the president. Tlie report of

is made for beginning work.

IT IS A SCHEME
OF FINANCIERS
Kansas City, March 3.—The Journal to

scheme to overthrow the Nicaraguan
government in order to secure from the
new government concessions which will
enable them permanently to control the
building of the canal. John Drummond,
of Virginia, who recently visited this city,
the story alleges, endeavored to interest

the Welsh circuit, from the complimen
