A parly of correspondent*' and pho?
tographers waited in the trench of the
American outpost before tne wrecked
bridge across the; river separating tho
t\VO armies, and, nt 9 o'clock n group
eamp down the track, waving a hand?
kerchief on a bamboo arid halted before
the bridge. A buj-le then sounded the
"attention" and Major Shields..of Gen?
eral Wheaton's Rtaff. nnd five soldiers,
with a- raised handkerchief., picked
their way across ,the bridge.1
The Filipinos. Introduced themselves

Colonel'?rlano nnd Major Ortes, th'e
latUr ot German blood and speaking
English fluently.: There soon appeared
iv second party, of fourteen Americans
marching between flltis of Insurgent
soldiers. They looked ihe picture . of
health and were dressed in neat Fili?
pino uniforms of blue gingham, and
were carrying monkeys and other pres?
ents from their Filipino friends.
Then General Wheeler, being anxious
to see the Filipinos, forded the r.vor,
with a corrcsp. ndent mounted behind
the General nnd the staff horses carry?
ing double. General Wheeicr sho/dc
hands with the Filipinos und there wsa
a general exchange of greetings while
the photographers piled their vocation
across the track;
The file of barefoot FiitPirio soldiers
curiously surveyed the line of stalwart
American sentinels, whose physique
contrasted strongly with the little
brown men. who looked too. small for
their guns.
General Wheeler, who had no offi?
cial connection with the Incident, rc
[hrned to General Mac-Arthur nud Gen?
eral \yhea"ton appeared at the other end
of the bridge. The Commissioners and
prisoners forded the riven dismounted
?stlid saluted.
General Mat-Arthur's first Inquiry was
for Lieutenant Gllmore's uarty and
General Alejandriuo replied vnguely
that they wore "in the north."
Geriernl MacArthur asked If they
Would be released and General Alejan?
driuo said:
"I must consult with my government
before answering."
The prisoners unanimously praised
their treatment. One man said: "We
have ben given the best the country
afforded, fine bouses for quarters, ser?
vants, good food, plenty of wine and
a money allowance. Agulnnldo- v's' ted
us nnd shook hands. Three of the boys
refused to shake hands with him,"
Judging from the ?torlos of the pris?
oners, they have been lionized by the
people. They report that flvo sailors,
survivors of Naval Cadet Wood's party,
arrived at Taxlac Wednesday. Though
small importance is attached to their
Judgment, they agree in saying' that:
Ihe Filipinos all say that they arc
"tired of the war. but will fight for
Independence to the last."
Af?"?St:>.m02f THREATENED. .
The retc??stl sbid'ers also say the Idea
of Independence has taken llrm hold of
the Filipinos, and they threaten. If con?
quered, to exterminate the Americans
by assassination. Aguinaldo seemed
popular among ah the people tho pl'lt:
oners met.
T.nc country, they say, is full ot rich
crops. All the prisoners have stories

j The Filipino commission does not
! nrotusc groat expectations as to the rer
suit of its visit. Major Ortes' said
frankly that they -were very tired of
I the war. but they decline to say what
proposals they bring.
