Gen. Otis* Ruling in Regard to
And the Parties Who Sufferd Loss !
Will Have to—Stand It Trans
ports Coming; Home.
New York, May 10.—A special to the
Herald from Washington says: Maj. Gen. ;
Otis has virtually decided against the
legality of claims for indemnity filed bv ;
residents of Iloilo, whose property was
destroyed during the operations incident ;
to the capture of that city on Feb. 11. j
Claimants who reside in other countries
are advised to present their claims
through the governments of their ™
* B v " ineir r^
spec five countries. The claims, accord-i
ing to information received here, are held
by persons of various nationalities In
eluding Filipinos and amount to several !
million dollars. German residents at Tin- '■
.1 j
no are said to be among the principal !
claimants. In response to these claim-j
ants Gen. Otis has addressed to t'h^m a
circular letter, a copy of which reached I
th« »■,, a or .a , , "
, derailment today. This letter :
Cells attention at the outset to the fact
that the claims presented vary greatly in
their statements and offer no proof of ac
tual ownership by the claimant of prop- |
,, , ,, * ...
city destrojed so that even if liability,
°f the United 1 States were conceded no
conclusions could be readied on the facts
a.s represented. The letter continues: !
The claims m question are now re- ,
turned for submission of more complete
proof, in the view that the destruction |
of property at Iloilo, whether resulting
from the acts of the United States forces
j or the •insurgents, can furnish no valid
j claims fer indemnity as against the,
j United State?, it being held to be a gen- '
I eraliy accepted principle of international
i law that all property situated within the
I theater of actual military operations,!
; whether belonging to citizens of foreign
powers, alien residents or natives, is sub
ject to the casualties of war and t hat no
liability is insured to indemnify such
owners for the destruction of such prop
erty resulting from legitimate belligerent
; action."
The general further says that the lia
I bility of the United States to indemnify
! owners of the property, even if destroyed
; in rebellion against this country, would
not exist. The only valid basis for claims!
j would be the charge that the destruction ,
fresulted from neglect by the United
neglect by
States army and Gen. Otis adds: 'Such
neglect is not charged, nor can it be
truthfully alleged."

Attempted cures by incantations and the
mysterious ministrations of Christian

in and about New York. The recent (lag
rant eases which have been followed by
loss of life and limb have resulted in a
union of regularly licensed physicians
and the district attorneys of the three
counties for the purpose of punishing as
severely as the law permits all persons
who practice or countenance charlatanry
in one guise or another.

not believe that the Austro-Hungarian

number to emigrate at one time. It was
pointed out that the emigration of peo

population of Galicia going away and
would go a long way toward depopulat
