"The damage to crops has been
very great. All crops on the immed
?ate river bottoms from M.-I.ennin
county south are a total loss. The
land bordering ou the Braz i rivet is
the most productive in the State
There was a largo acreage in cotton
corn, sugar caje and other crops
The following are the counties whn-!i
have suffered the greatest damage :
McLonuan, Falls, Robertson, MtUm,
Bra/is, < i rimes, Washington, Waller,
Austin, Fort Bond and Brazoria
There has been a small acreage in
undated in some other counties, bol
no great damage resulted outside of
these. Cotton planters have suffered
most. The loss of corn has been
great, and betides the crop now
growing,there was a Urge amouDt of
last year's crop yet in the bins which
has been spoiled. ?Sugar cano plan?
tations in Braz is bottoms have inl
fered much. In some places hull the
crop has been destroyed. The minor
crops also are of considerable im
portance in some of these comities,
and tbe loss of these represents a
homes WA8BCD a\vv,.
"FarmiDg implements, stock and
many of the email tenant hou
the bottoms have been washed away.
Houses left standing are in many in
stances not in a fit condition for use
The total losses, judging from press
reports and other available informa
tion, will aggregate nearly ten mil
lion dollars. The number of peopl ?
who are left without means of guste
nance is very large. The towns
which have suffered most are Culvert,
Brookshire, Richmond, SaDdy Point,
Columbia and Brazoria. It now ap
pears that the total number of casu?
alties as a result of the fluid will fall
somewhere between forty and fifty.
"Action has already been taken by
some farmers to plant other crops
where cotton and corn have bpen de?
stroyed. Somi? cotton will be
planted, but to what extent cannot
be even approximated. Eff jrts are
being made to get the farmers in the
flood district to plant a variety of
ciops. It is desired to make the dis
trict self-sustaining as soon as pis
sible, and many who have interests
along tbe Brazos river consider this
the best course to pursue."

A telegram to the Philadelphia
Time* fro o? Atlanta,Qeorgii, says:
"The frienda of W. J, Bryan in
gift and Alabama are anxious
about the attitude o? Senator Mor
ol Alabama, in declaring that
be leriooilj to Mr. Bryan's
view that C ?ogreae, when it aase in
-liould order the withdrawal of
nil troops from the Philippines, a
propoaition that would be against all
the laws of humanity aid which
mot and di igrace to
this country, lays the Senator.
" I'i order to bring about a bettor
aoderataodiog between Senator Mor?
gan and Mr. Bryan and stop the
troulile that is brewing. Editor
(?ark Uowell, Democratic National
oitteeman. arged Mr. Bryan to
make a clear statement of his views
on the Philippine problem, and the
Nebraakan has wired Mr. Howeil
from Humphrey, Neb., as follows:
" 'The treaty should have prOT?dt r]
for the iadependerjcd of the Pu:lip
piue I lands, as it did for the iod ?
pi d ?eace of Cuba, but 1 thought it
: to ratify the treaty and dec?ate
the nation's policy byresolntionthan
reject the treaty. 1 favored the
Bacon resolution, which promised
the Filipinos independence as soon
as a stable government could be es
tall.shed. I lu heve, further, that
our nation should protect the Filipino
Republic from outside interference
while it works out its own destina?
tion. In other words, I believe we
should treat the Filipinos as we have
pDtnised to treat the Cabana, and as
we treated the people of Mexico and
the people of South and Central
America. Monarchies are founded
upon force, but republics are found
ed upon confoit.
" 'The Declaration of Independence
asserts that governments derivo their
just powers from the consent of the
governed. If the declaration is sound,
we cannot rightfully acquire title by
conquest or by purchase from an
alien monarch, whose title we dis?
puted when he furnished arms to the
" 'If the adminidtation had given
to the Filipinos the assurance of in
dependence which was given the Cu
bans, there would have been no
bloodshed. If that assurance is given
now hostilities will cease. No one
proposes to withdraw the soldiets
until a stable government is estab
lished, but it will be easy to estab
lish a stable government when it is
known that our occupation of the
Philippine Islands is only temporary.
" 'Forcible annexation would be
criminal and contrary to our code

The New V. rk World says: Tue
sitnation in the Philippines is un
donbtedly very serious, but no part
of tbe miserable btibiness has be? n so
disgraceful as tbe suppression and
"doctoring" of the news by General
Otis on tbe plea that the facts would
"filarm the people at home."
The X. Y. Journal says: We t* I B
to be living under a round robin
military administration. When the
imbecile commanders selected by a
hero dreading President have
brought our armies to the verge of
ruin, a few desperate men at tbe in?
side of things, uuable to endure the
situation any longer, tako their lib
i orty iu their hands and unite in tel?
ling the truth. Then the adminis'
tration is compelled to do : OB4 thing?
It was the officers, of whom Colonel
Roosevelt was one, that performed
this service at Santiago. The news?
paper correspondents have juet done
it at Manila.
The New York 1'ress says: Of how
much light and lesding Genere! Otis
has deprived the world in the case of
Manila correspondents the world
must be unaware until these gentle?
men are more specific. But, how
ever, the Froudes and Maeaulays of
the Philippines have suffered from
enforced reticence.they may eongrat
ulate themselves on some things
<?io is that they were not in Ken?
tucky with Sherman, in the Soudan
with Kitchener, or, above all, in Vir?
ginia with Meade. He had a very
ugly way of censorizing after the
facts?"editing the paper next day,"
so to speak. He employed a drum
corps and a barrel in tbe course of
it. It was cruel, as most of war is.
Manila is not Mulberrv street and
wars are not conducted as a famous
superintendent was said to conduct
the Police Department of this city,
for the purpose of "giving the boys
"The Philadelphia Record says:
"Some real news from the Puihp
pines is set forth in the joint state?
ments of 11 American correspond?
ents stationed at Manila, which has
been forwatded via Hongkong
These trained and experiencedjobser
vers cf passing events, who certainly
would not desire to misrepresent
facts, make formal announcement to
the American people that the infor?
mation filtered through the censor
ship at Manila has not redacted cor?
rectly the real situation in and
around Manila, whether in regard to
the results of American operations
or the quality and vigor of Filipino
"The absolute and utter failure of
the spring campaign, the large pro?
portion of men disabled by disease
and the incessant activity of the op?
posing insurgent forces were features
not to be explained away by officia)
excuses nor ignored by a public anx?
ious for peace and jealous of nat?
ional honor. It can scarely be
doubted that the truthful reports
which have been withheld from tbe
American people have all alorg
been at tbe service of tbe adminis?
tration at Washington.The President
and tbe War Departmentcilicialshave
been kept constantly and accurate?
ly informed of the state of affairs
in and around the Phillippine capi?
tal. The American public, on tbe
contrary, has been hoodwinked and

' Th^re is l;t'leorno reason to
