Is so Rigid it Keeps Out a Large Num
ber—Boston Minister Purports to
Give Otis and Dewey's Views on
Philippine Situation.
New York, July 7.—The work of re
cruiting men to fill up the regiments in
the Philippines to the maximum of 128
men to a company is going on in New
York, the main station in this city being
at Third avenue and Ninth street, and in
charge of Major Whitney, who has been
detailed from the Ninth infantry for this
service. All recruits from stations round
about, such as Providence, Bridgeport,
Danville, Yonkers and like places come
to this main station for their equipment,
except arms.
It is estimated that the quota required i
is being filled at the rate of from 1,000 to
1,200 a week. Were it not for the ex
tremely rigid physical examination en
forced by the W'ar department, it would
be possible to do the W'ork much more
rapidly, but the authorities at Wash
ington, on account of the climatic and
other conditions which these troops will
be called upon to face, insist on the reg
ulation physical requirements being filled
to the letter. As an instance, at this main
station, about 18 men a day are being
! enlisted, but with modifications in the
j physical requirements this number could
( be easily increased to 30. On Thursday
: a company of 60 was sent to San Fran
I cisco to be forwarded to Manila, and from
j now on men will be sent forw'ard as rap
is likely to begin.
j While recruiting stations have been
; opened at various points throughout all
the eastern states, the large majority of
the men required are being furnished by
New York and Pennsylvania. Most of
these will go to the infantry, although
: for all the other arms of the service men
; are being recruited as well. No particu
lar instructions have been received from
Washington lately, except to get all the
infantry recruits possible up to July 10, ]
and this is taken to mean that on that ;
! date the recruiting for the volunteer force
j likely to begin.
j More men than the dispatches indicat
| ed are likely to be required. It is known
j that not so many of the volunteers now
! at Manila can be counted on for re-en
listment as was previously supposed At '
: first General Otis thought'he could make !
I x u I
! up aree regiments from those willing to j
, re-enlist. from the volunteer forces about j
; to return home, but later information de- i
j velops that he has organized only two '
. , . _ . ^ T x* » !
' • ton legiment. and the term skele- j
ton in some quarters is taken to mean
that only the officers and a very few of
the men have consented to remain. It is
! not believed that the authorities at
j Washington will agree to General Otis'
1 plan of filling the ranks of these regi
| ments with friendly natives, as too lit
I tie is known of the characteristics of the
j natives to guarantee the success of such
. a scheme.
Dewey and Otis' Views.
Boston, July 7.—Rev. Clay McCauley
, has written a letter to the Transcript,
, dated at Tokio, Japan, June 1. Mr. Mc
! Cauley desclares that Admiral Dewey
! said to him: "Rather than make a war
of conquest on the Filipino people, I
i would take up anchor and sail out of the !
harbor." Mr. McCauley visited Manila
in January, in search of health. Of his
views there he writes: i
"For a long time I could not believe
that the disastrous drift of events was
known to the Washington authorities. I
was inclined to lay the responsibility for
the increasing perils upon the military
commander directly in charge. Yet now
it seems clear to me that General Otis
did this work in the main in literal obe
dience to his superiors in America: that
there it was assumed that the whole
right and duty concerning the future dis- I
position and control of the Philippines isl
ands lay in the wishes and will of the
United States: that what the Filipinos 1
themselves might wish, need not be taken
Into the account In formulating plans for
their government.'*
The writer had a talk with General
Otis. "Among other things," said Mr
McCauley, ''General Otis expressed re- 1
gret that there was not a better knowl
edge of the situation among the Wash
ington legislators than there seemed to
be. And he impressed me deeply by his
declaration: 'I was ordered to this post
from San Francisco. I did not believe in
the annexation of these islands when I
came here, nor do I believe in their an
nexation now.' I also had the privilege
of a conversation with Admiral Dewey,"
the writer says, and gives this version of
it: "Dewey spoke much of his concern !
over the turn affairs had taken, and add- i
ed that he was 'powerless to act.' Yet in j
one point In his remarks he declared: I
'Rather than make a war of conquest on ;
- ,
these people I '' ou jd ta R f e U P anchor and j
sail out or the harDor. |
Mr. McCauley says he wrote President I
McKinley, whom he met In Washington,
regarding the situation, predicting the
outbreak which has since occurred.
The Returning Soldiers.
San Francisco, July 7.—The United
States transports Newport and Ohio are
now out 23 days from Manila with Ohe
Second Oregon volunteers aboard.. They
should reach here next Wednesday or
Thursday. The returning troops will be
given a warm reception. The harbor com
missioners have placed the tug Gov.
Markham at the disposal of the govern
ors of California and Oregon, who will be
on hand to meet the troops. The trans
portation department of the government
is making arrangements for sending the
Oregonians home. The Newport and Ohio
will be followed by the Indiana and Mor
gan City with invalids, the Senator with
the Tenth Pennsylvania, Hancock with
batteries A and B of the First Utah and
the remains of the First Nebraska;
the Warren with ehe First Colorado and

Spoiled by Rain.
Detroit, July 7.—Soon after the break
of dawn the trustees of the United So
ciety of Christian Endeavor gathered in
the Hotel Cadillac to discuss several
matters left undetermined at Wednes
day's meeting. The most important of
these was a protest from the Ministerial
alliance of Toledo against the opening of
the gates of the Ohio centennial on Sun
day. A resolution was authorized pro
testing against opening any exposition
or fair on the Sabbath. Another resolu
tion was announced protesting against
the seating of Congressman-elect Brig
ham H. Roberts of Utah. Botli resolu
] tions will be submitted to the general
; convention for adoption.
chief ordnance officer in the field of the
army operating there.
"Showers of Blessing" and "There's
Sunshine in My Soul Today" were the
favorite hymns sung by the Endeavorers
this morning en route to the "quiet
hour" at "Tent Endeavor." However
abundant the showers may have been,
the physical rains were copious enough
' to drench everything in sight, and the
! utt ? r »»capability of "Tent Endeavor" to
I exclude rain was fully demonstrated.
j "Tent Endeavor" was a broad and long
j expanse of shining umbrellas, and for a
i lo ng time the muffled roar of falling rain
on the roof precluded the hope of speak
mg', or audible prayer, so that the p?o
pj e sang instead, led by four brass wind
Instruments sticking out from under
umbrellas on the stage. Hundreds of
young people braved the elements and
appeared at the grounds for the two main

Jeffries and Sharkey.
San Francisco, July 7.—-No sooner had
Champion Jeffries landed in this city
than local promoters began working to
secure the coming fight between Jeffries
and Sharkey. The first offer came from
Charles Newman, in the shape of a cer
tified check for $5,000, deposited with a
morning paper, as a guarantee of his sin
cerity in the affair. Newman, acting
solely in his own behalf, offers a purse
city at the velodrome, which was built
several years ago for holding bicycle
races. It has a capacity of 15,000 persons.
It is the purpose of the promoter, should
he be the successful bidder, to bring off ;
the daytime. Upon the
the match durin
heels of the first bid came one from the
Glen Park company, with conditions
identical with those made by Newman,
namely, a purse of $40.000, the fight to
take place some day in September be
tween the hours of 9 a. m. and 5 p. m.
A check for $5.000 will be deposited today
by the party making the second offer.

Populists Will Not Join the
They Have Hade Enough Experience
in the Past-The Party Will Hold
its Convention Ahead of the Re
publicans and Democrats.
Terre Haute, Ind.. July 7.—Mortimer C.
Rank in, chairman of the populist national
central committee,has been interview ed in
regard to whether the populists would
form a fusion with the democrats for the
coming campaign. Mr. Rankin said they
would not for the reason that the popu
lists would Hold their national convention
one month prior to either the
or democratic conventions. For this rea
„.,», 11 ...,„
son the popunsts will prepare their own
platform and nominate their own candi
dates. The time for the national populist
convention is not determined vet and can'
not be determined until one of the big po
Mr. Rankin stated that the party was
split up in its views, but it was hoped
that every one would be brought to one
course before the convention met. The
1 populists of Nebraska, Mr. Rankin, said,
were in favor of fusion, should they be al
litieal parties names
the date for its con
lowed to name the nominee for vice presi
dent on the democratic ticket. While this
might be allowed in Nebraska the other
states will by no means submit to such
an action.
The populists are tired of fusion, for
they have found that whenever they en
: tered into a fusion with the democrats the
1 latter party received the benefit, while the
populists were there merely to fill up. Mr.
: Rankin statd that the party was split up
; on the matter of holding the Philippine is
1 lands. In his opinion, the object of the
! government should be to tear down all
I the monarchies possible and construct
! upon the debris the foundation of
I republics- the mole republics, the
j better. Tie said if the democrats
j fight the policy of the administration in
' holding the Philippines until a suitable
j form of government has been formed,
I they will find themselves snowed under
I far worse than they were in 1896.
Wreck On The Burlington.
Kansas City, July 5.—Fireman Welly of
St. Joseph was killed and 20 passengers
slightly injured in a wreck on the Bur
lington near Waldron, Mo., last night,
the northbound train for Omaha going
through a culvert. A relief train from
Kansas City carried physicians, who
cared for the injured. The wrecked train,
at the time of the accident, was running
about 25 miles an hour. A cloudburst had
washed out a considerable piece of track
age a, few minutes before, and within 10
minutes tlie water rose three feet on the
level. A terrific wind was blowing.
The engine passed over the culvert
without the rails. The mail car was
turned over on its side and was washed
20 feet from the track. For 15 minutes
the scene »vas a veritable whirlpool. The
baggage ear was overthrown and carried
30 feet from the track. The first coach
! was thrown on its side and the sleeper,
containing 17 passengers, was also over
turned. Fortunately all the passengers
were soon gotten on dry land. The en
gineer remained on his seat and was not
hurt. Fireman Welty jumped to save
himself. His body was found on top of
the driftwood against the floor of the
overturned mail car. The passengers
were shaken up and some traveling men
slightly injured. The water disappeared
almost as quickly as it had risen.

Wyrick of the Postal Telegraph company
has just returned to Dallas from Sealey,

flooded district. Wyrick says the Brazos
river has fallen eight inches during the
past 24 hours, and that while the highest
estimates of the loss of life may have
been somewhat exaggerated, srill the
number is large and cannot be definitely
known for several days. Everything is
in a state of demoralization and confu
sion. On the Dewey side of the Brazos
a mile and a half of the "Katy" track
