FIGHTING THE AMERICANS
A Number of Our Men Are Reported
Wounded in the List feit in
by Gen. Otis Today.
Manila, April 3.—6:30 p. rn.--Natives
continue returning to their homes. They
are coming in ail along ihe American
line's and many of them, seeing the prom
ises of good treatment are fulfilled, are
inducing their relatives to return to their
homes.
Gen. Otis has 1 received the following
mesea ge :
"Hearty congratulations on the most
magnificent work of the army. (Signed)
"DEWEY."
The Philippine commission, the last

by, former minister to China, having ar
rived here, will discuss the situation.
The commissioners are hopeful of a
speedy restoration of peace, velieVlng
hostilities will soon be confined to habit
ual revolutionists.
Brigadier General Harrison Cray Otis
sails for home on board the T'nited States
transport Sherman today. He says he
believes the insurrection has received its
death blow. The Sherman will also have
on board the sons of Secretary John. Hay
of the state department and Senator
Hale of Maine, who have witnessed much
of the fighting with the army, and the
bodies of Col. Harry C. Egbert of the
22nd infantry, killed on March 26, and
other officers who have recently fallen in
battle.
Gen. Wheaton has assumed command
of the brigade lately commanded by Gen.
Otis. The third and 22nd regiments of

ARE READY TO
SURRENDER NOW
Washington, April 3.—The following
cablegram was received at the war de
partment this mornilng.
Manila, April 3.—Adjutant General,
Washington.—Present indications denote
tiie insurgent government in a perilous
condition, its army dereated, discouraged
and scattered. The insurgent's are re
turning to their homes in cities and vil
lages between here and points north of
Maiolos, which our reconnoitering parties
have reached and desire protection of the
Americans. News from the Visayan is
lands is more encouraging everv day.
(Signed) • OTIS.
Under this- date General Otis reports
the following casualties not heretofore
reported :
March 2ij.—Twenty-second infantry,

T.ieut. Dorman Baldwin, log, severe; Cor
poral J. C. Bryon; Private E. Morgan,

Agiiinaldo Will Fight
New York .April 3.—Maj. Gen. Wesley
Merritt, in an interview last night, said:
"The news from Manila is satisfactory.
Aguinaldo does not seem to know when
he is whipped. If he should be captured
he would be treated as a prisoner of war.
There will be no cruel measures. Do I
look for prolonged fighting? No. The
Filipinos are not prepared for that sort
of thing. We shall not have a repetition
of our American Indian experiences in
the northwest."
Enemy Not Located
New York, April -3.—A dispatch to the
Herald from Manila says: Repeated ef
forts to locate the insurgent army in front
of Maiolos have been unsuccessful and
our forces are therefore still resting in
the former Filipino capital.
The attack on the forces under General
Hall at Marquina, suggests that the en
emy Is concentrating in that direction.
Col. Denby's arrival makes the early
issue of the proclamation of the Philip
pine commission probable.
Light Haltering I.navo
New York, April 3.—A light battery of
the Fourth artillery and a light battery
of the Fifth artillery left today for .Ma
nila via San Francisco.
Diltrlliutlou Is Prohibited
San Francisco, April 3.—Alexander
Craw, quarantine officer of the state
board of horticulture, has refused to per
mit the distribution of 152,000 hop plants

:
from Kent, England. The hop plants of
Kent county have for years taeen infected
with hop vermin. The imported plants
were to have been planted near Hopland
and Ukiah.
SALE OF LIQUOR
IS PROHIBITED
New York, April 2.—A special to the
Herald from Washington says: Attorney
General Griggs will render an opinion this
week on the question of authority of the
secretary of war to permit the sale of beer
on public reservations under his control.
Temperance men all over the country are
making a strong effort to secure prohibi
tion of the sale of beer at the military
posts and soldiers' homes and they suc
ceeded in getting through congress dur
ing the last session a provision in the
army reorganization bill that "no officer
or private soldier shall be detailed to sell
intoxicating drinks, as a bartender or
otherwise in any post exchange or can
: teen, nor shall any person be required or
! allowed to sell such liquors in any en
' ea.mpment or fort, or on any premises
used for military purposes by the United
: States." The secretary of war is specially
I directed to issue such general orders as
- may be necessary to carry these pro
j visions into effect. Judge Advocate Gen
j oral Lieber held that the section required
j the total prohibtion of the sale of intoxi
! eating liquors, but Secretary Alger simply
! published the law "for the information of
j all concerned."
HE WAS MISTAKEN
FOR A FILIPINO
Chicago, April 3.—A special to the Tri
bune from Washington says: Within the
next two weeks the government will be
asked by Great Britain to indemnify the
family of a British subject named Simp
son, who was killed during the battle
at Manila, Feb. 23. Simpson, represented
Rir English paper house and was acci
dentally shot. He was looking out of the
window of his house when the battle was
in progress and being dressed in white
clothing, he was mistaken for a Filipino.
Early in, March Sir Philip James Stan
hope asked on the floor of the house of
commons if the details of the occurrence
had been received by the government.
Parliamentary Secretary Broderick re
plied that the details would not be in the
hands of the government until the early
part of April, when, he said, friendly
representations would be made to this
country.
It is- now said these details are in the
hands of the British foreign, office and
will be immediately forwarded to Sir
j Julian Pauncefote, who will make repre
sentations to the state department. This
will be the first claim of the kind grow
! ing out of the Spanish war and the opera
tions in the Philippines. When the facts
I are presented to the state department, it
j is believed the justice of the claim will be
j acknowledged and congress will be asked
I to make an appropriation, as there is no
fund at the disposal of the department to
: meet such eases.
MARINE FORCE
BEING ORGANIZED
Washington, April 3.—Arrangements
have been made for the mai ine forces at
the stations in the Philippines. Three
hundred and fifty marines are to be sent
to the Cavite navy yard from San Fran
cisco on the army transport Newport. A
I detachment of 200 marines will leave New
! York City April 10 and these will be join
! ed at San Francisco by 150 more. Fifteen
officers will accompany this force which
is the first battalion of 1.000 marines
which will eventually be ass -mbled at
Cavite. This force has been requested by
Admiral Dewey in anticipation of the
fact that the forces of the army will he
withdrawn from the naval reservation at
Cavite. The detail of officers for this
force is now under consideration by the
commandant but no officers have as yet
been definitely decided upon. Maj. Charles
McCawley, assistant quartermaster, will
accompany the battalion to the Philip
! pines, where he will organize the quarter
I master's work of the corps. When this
: duty is completed, he will be relieved by
a captain and assistant quartermaster
and return to his proper station at Wash
ington.
It is expected that the force of marines
for OBam, under command of Col. I'. C.
Pope, will get away about May 1. The
commandant of the marine corps has au
thorized the procurement in the next an
nual supplies for the corps tank-colored
leather shoes to be worn in the tropics.
The marines destined for the Philippines
and Guam will be provided with the regu
lar blue flannel blouses, hut they will be
made in skeleton form entirely without
lining or stiffening of any kind. The sea
soldiers will also be provided with colored
linen such as is worn by the marine bat
talion in Cuba. This suit has prov- d
durable and at the same time lighter and
cooler than the army Khaki uniform. A
new white helmet has been adopted for
wear by the marines in warm climates.
It differs from the old white helmet in
that it has no brass ornaments, is lighter,
has more flare on the sides to protect the
temples and a much longer rear piece to
protect the back of the neck. The body
of the helmet is made of three ply cork
covered with white drilling.
IN MEMORY

Proclamation Issued by tile
President Today.
THOSE WHO FELL IN BATTLE
And Have No Relations Here Will be
Buried in National Cemeteries
— April 6th the Day.
C. P. HUNTINGTON
IS INTERVIEWED
San Francisco, April 3.— C. P. Hunting
ton. president of the Southern Pacific
Railroad company, has arrived in firs
city and will occupy his mansion on Cali
fornia. street about May 1. He was ac
companied by his wife. The main object
of Mr. Huntington's visit is to attend the
annual meeting and election of the
Southern Pacific. In an authorized in
terview he Said he hoped the reorganiza
tion of the Central Pacific would have a
beneficial effect on California business.
He added: ,
"As to rates and improvements of the
road, we expect that the facilities will be
somewhat improved, which will naturally
accelerate the movements of tonnage. Rut
I do not know whether the rates can be
cut down. I had strongly hoped that we
could make arrangement with the gov
ernment for a long extension of the time
of the repayment of the money loaned to
the company."
The opposition met with in California,
Mr. Huntington stated, had prevented
this extension. He continued:
"As to what we propose to effect by the
purchase or consolidation with the South
ern Pacific company of lines in California
that are leased to the parent organiza
tion, I have to say that it is a matter that
we have not yet fully decided upon."
He stated that the sale of Mrs. Stan
Washington, April 3.—'The president
today issued the following executive
order:
"It is tilting that in behalf of the nation
a tribute of honor be paid to the memo
ries of the noble men who lost their lives
in their country's service during the late
war with Spain. It is the more fitting,
inasmuch as in consonance with the
spirit of our free institutions and in obe
dience to the most exalted promptings
of patriotism thoso who were sent to
other shores to do battle for their coun
try's honor under their country's flag
went freely from every quarter of our
beloved lard.
"Each sol'dier, each sailor, parting from
home ties and putting behind him pri
vate interest in the presence of stern
emergency of unsought war with au alien
foe was an individual type of devotion of
citizen to the state which makes our
nation strong in unity and in action.
Those who died in another land left in
many homes tho undying memory that
attend heroes of all ages.
"It was fitting that with the advent of
peace won by their sacrifiée their bodies
should be gathered with tender care and
restored to home and kindred. This has
been done with the dead of Cuba and
Porto Rico. Those of the Philippines
still rest where they fell, watched over
by their surviving comrades and crowned
with love of a grateful nation.
"The remains of many brought to our
shore have been delivered to their fami
lies for private burial. But for others of
the brave officers and men who perished,
there lias been reserved interment in
ground sacred to soldiers and sailors
among tributes of military honor and
nation el mourning they have so well de
served.
"I therefore order: That upon the ar
rival of the cortege at the National
cemetery at Arlington all proper military
and natal honors be paid the dead heroes;
that suiting ceremonies shall attend
their interment; that the customary sa
lute of mourning be fired at the cemetery
and that on the same day at 2 o'clock
Thursday, the 6th day of April, the na
tional flag be displayed at half mast on
all public buildings, forts, camps and
public vessels of the United States, and
that at 12 o'clock, noon, of said day, all
departments of the government at Wash
ington shall he closed.
"WILLIAM M'KINLEY,
"(Signed.)
"Executive Mansion, April 3, 1899."
In the same connection Acting Secre
tary of War Meikiejohn issued tills order:
"The remains of officers and soldiers
who lost their lives in the war with
Spain during the operations in Cuba and
Porto Rico will be interred with due and
fitting ceremonies in the National ceme
tery ut Arlington, Va., on Thursday,
April S. at 2 p. m."
By direction of the president, all United
States troops in the vicinity of Washing
ton, together with the national guard of
the District of Columbia, will be assem
bled at Arlington on the date in ques
tion to participate in the funeral cere
monies.
ford's Central Pacific stork would make
no difference in the management of
road. Work on the coast line exteq
would be pushed, he stated. Being as %
if he favored a compromise with the st <
railroad commission, he said: *
"That is a matter largely with our lea
department ,though as for myself, I sh;
oppose any compromise which gives tl
right lo any tribunal to reduce the rate
of fares so long as they are not abort
what will he a fair return for the money
invested in creating these properli s."
Croker will be Witness
New York, April 3.—The T-Icraid says:
Richard Croker, it is definitely settled,
will be subpoenaed to testify befoiv the
Mazet investigating committee. Litte, is
known as to the questions the Tammany
leader will be asked and -till less ns
known as to who will ask them. The
only positive information bearing on the
matter is that Mr. Croker stands toady
to answer the subpoena pronipt'y and to
give tiie Mazet committee whatever
comfort its members maw derive front
questioning him. It is impossible to ob
tain from any of the republican leaders
definite information as ti who would be
selected as counsel to the committee.
There is. however, substantial agreement
on this point. If the Mazet investigation
is to be a genuine search for facts, Frank
Moss, former president of tiie police
board, will be either chief counst i or as
sociate counsel.
THE YALE
ALUMNI HALL
New York, April 3.—Although no appeal
has yet been made by the public for
money to build the great alumni hall at
Yale, which President Dwight' wishes to
make a conspicuous feature of the hi
centennial ceremonies in October, 1901, a
large sum has been promised by members
of the funds committee in New York and
other cities. At a meeting of the New
York branch of the committee last week
more than $150,000 was promised, but this
does not nearly represent the total
amount that Yale men here are expected
to contribute after the appeal for funds
has been issued. It is expected that this
appeal will be made by means of a cir
cular issued from New Haven within 10
days. The Boston alumni raised $25.000
last week. It is not known precisely how
much money will be required for tiie
alumni building, but there will probably
be no difficulty In raising all that is neces
sary to erect one of tiie finest college
buildings in the world. The original plan
outlined by President Dwight would call
for about half a million dollars, but it is
more than likely that the plan will be
amplified to broaden the project beyond
anything dreamed of in the original sug
gestion. The building may cost $1.000,000.
NAMES0F CANAL
COMMISSIONERS
New York, April 3—A special to the
Herald from Washington says: Presi
dent McKinley will announce on Tuesday
the seven members of the new isthmian
canal commission. The names definitely
determined upon are: Rear Admiral
Walker. Brigadier General Haines and
Prof. Haupt, of the Nicaragua Canal
commission; Civil Engineer Noble of
Chicago, formerly a member of the Lud
low canal commission'; Maj. Frank
Symonds, corps of en-gineets, and Civil
Engineer Morrison of New York, who has
been in Washington for the last three
days.
Under the terms of the act the com
mission will visit both the Panama and
Nicaragua routes. The president is anx
ious that it shall begin its work imme
diately, as he desires it to submit its re
port as promptly as- possible to the next
congress 1 r.> order that an appropriation
may be- obtained from that body for com
mencing work on the canal. In accord
ance with the wishes of tiie president, it
is understood Rear Admiral Walker is
expediting tiie work of preparing the trip
of the Nicaragua canal commission and
it will be ready for submission to the
president within' the n xt ten days.
There will be seven rortes considered, but
the commission has determined not to
change its recommendation in favor of
the Lull route, though some slight
changes in the route on tiie eastern side
will be suggested.
Tt is understood that Secretary Long
will bo rejuested to place a warship at
the disposal of the commission and t lia
vessel will convey the members to Colon,
where they will make an examination of
the Panama canal. Upon the comple
tion of tills examination, which will take
only a short time, as the ca'nal company
will place its charts and surveys at the
disposal of the commission. Rear Admir
al Walker and his associates will proceed
to Nicaragua, where they will examine
the Nicaraguan route.
