The War Department is In receipt of
the r port of Gen Arthur SI icArthur
until mentl the commanding general of
the arm in the Philippines com ring the
period from October 1 lW to Jul 4
1101 the time when he relinquished his
command toTJemral Chaffte He treats
at some length the gemral situ itlon In
the islands r suiting from the collapse
of the lnsurretlon so far us any armed
and organUed forco of the Filipinos is
coneernid While the abandonment of
field operations b the nities lias
brought a pirlocl of coinpirntiv ln
ntiit he sijs that resistance is still
offered b the guerrillas aided in secret
b nun of tlie people This forms a dis
turbing clement in bringing about a com
plete pacilicatiou
General MacArthur tells of the methods
emplojed hy the Americans against the
guerrillas the punishments for crimes
and the attitude in general of the people
toward the Goernnnnt now established
He makes report of the arIous official
orders decrees and proclamations whlcTi
were Issued during the period n uneil and
which hae heretofore bten mide public
of the deportation of insurgent leaders to
the Island ot Guam under the direction
of the Secretary of War and other acts
calculated to bring aliout peace and good
go eminent in theJsiinds
Speaking of the Held operations of the
arm General MacArthur tis that
there were on October 1 1900 the date of
his last report 413 stations which the
necessities of the situation made it In
cumbent to increase to Ml and he sa5 sTVf IS lullllnS frails ha3 eYZ
txsted The Spanish ellscouraged the
tliat command w in contact with
cery is
some hostile force He speaks of the
good work done by the armj and the aid
rendered b the people who are lojal to
the authority of Uie United States At
tl e time the report was written there
was practically no Insurgent force north
of the Paslg Ricr although there were
diminishing disorders In southern Luzon
The Viscaas he states are all picified
witli the exception of the Island of Sd
mar 3n Mindanao and Jolo the Insur
gents had surrendered and disbanded Of
the situation in this regard General Mac
Arthur says
It is respectfully submitted that po
ery gratlfing conditions herein lirefly
recapitulated hae not been brought
about entirely by the hand of Providence
Neither must the attitude of the peopie
who hae declared for peace or even that
of the leaders of the Federal pirty be
attributed entlreb to unreserved pro
It would therefore be unsafe to as
sume these conservative forces as en
stant factors the friendlv operation of
which can be relied upon Irrespective of
external Influences Jn due time and be
jond any question If beneficent repub
lican institutions are Iermitted to oper
ate with full force the Filipino people
will become warmly attached to the
United States by a sense of self interest
and gratitude In the meantime the mold
ing force In the isHnds must be a w ell
organized army and navy Am thing In
the Immediate future calcalated to im
pede the activlt or reduce the efficiency
of these Instruments will not only be a
menace to the present but put in
jeopardy the entire future of American
possibilities In the archipelago
The report tells of the canture of Agui
naldo givingstht details briefly ns hive
been heretofore published lie Bavs that
the Immediate results which followed
his taking and the remote consequences
make the capture an important one It
erved to dispel he states the growing
tendency amom certain of the Filipinos
to idealize tie peisonaliti of Agulnildo
Thev believed him possessed of a certain
charm ard surrounded him with mjthlcaf
liRnds which made him appear to them
as invincible
The report contains the following ac
count of casualties Americana Killed
2tj wounded 490 captured 118 missing

During the same period the following ma

The report speaks of the cordial co
operation rendered bv the nav In many
important transactions
jcntral MjcArthurs recommendation
for a monctarv hjstem for the islands
is as follows
The American gold standard to be es
tablished bv authorizing the coinage of a
pe o containing twelve and nine tenths
129 grains nine tenths line to be repre
sented in the circulation by coins contain
ing such multiples of the standard peso as
niH be regarded as most convenient of
2 A tabic of equivalents to be de
clared bj law between Philippine Isold
money and United States montj In all Its
various forms Including national bank
notes on the basis of two to one that is
to say one United States dollar equiva
lent to two Philippine gold pesos as
therein preslibd
3 A sub I lary Filipino coinage em
bracing such subdivisions of the peso as
are most convenient conforming as much
as possible to the subsidiary coin of the
United States and with an established
rate of equivalents as in the case of gold
that is to ta one United States crdn
equivalent to two Philippine coins of the
same denomination
4 The establishment of Filipino na
tional banian precisely the ame in all re
spects as now authorized in the United
Slates including United States bonds as
a basis of circulation
3 AH currency issued under the fore
going svsunn to hive full legal tender
functions in the Philippine IMands for ail
public dues and private ueuts and the
isiuivalent United States currt ncv and
subsidiary coinage as authorized in the
for going sections 2 and 3 to have legal
tender qu illtles in the PhUlppines to the
i ann extent and precisely the same as in
the United States
Gineril MacArthur declares in speak
ing of general conditions that the power
which holds the Island must of necesslt
tact an active and potent influence upon
the affairs of Asia He statis that the
Chinese ire not necessarv ns labor rs
and recommends the gradual decreise of
Celestials In the Islands In conclusion

sequence of great material prosperity
and in remote consequences Is likely to

F Cook chief botanist at the De
partment of Agriculture has reecntl re
turned from a six weeks trip to Porto
Rico Mr Cook was in charge of the in
vestigations In tropical agrcultur which
the department has bcenonductlng In
the island
lu nnswer to a question as to whether
frilt growers In the States had mottling
to fear from Porto Rienn corliie tltlon Mr
Cook said that he thought iiott for some
time to come at least Aside from the
staph s eoffei sugar and tobacco the 1 1
habitants export very little bcilng content
to produce me relv enough to -satisfy theh
own neeels Some Americans are engaged
In orange grow ing and the ide i has also
been advanced that Porto Rico may some
day rival the Bermudas In the produc
tion of potatoes but while the island is
undouhteellv suited to such crops It Is too
earl jet to prophesj their future
Many Americans who are experiment
ing in various kinds ot ngriculti re seld
-Mr CooiiT would do better to stick to
the production of the well established
staphs of sugar coffee1 and tobacco
Some persons were no doubt prevented
from going into the coffee business
through fear that the present depression
in the business In the Island is perma
nent I lie conditions of dlslrcss which
prevailed In the coffee regions were how
ever onlv the logical conseepiences of
short crops due to tha war and the great
hurricane There will be u large coffee
crop this v e ir
Mr Cook sas that during the period
of starvation man Porto Weans in the
eoflee section were given work by tho
Government ujxin the macadamized roads
some of which were Degun b the
irds As the work was cirrleel on chiefly
in those districts where the most rigorous
suffering was experienced that the peo
ple might have some means of livelihood
the result Is that the present 3 stem is
ruber patch v Mr Cook thinks that
wagon roads are not so much in Immedi
ate demand as are cart tracks and bridle
ivotning in tne snape oi local organise
Idea of the people taking the initiative In
an m itter whatever and as a conse
quence the people look to the Government
to make the llrst move in an thing that
is done
1 found the sentiment existing toward
Americins to be ver friendly said Mr
Cook Any complaints of an existing
animus nre I think due rather to per
sonal than to national unpopularity The
Porto Rlcans seem to be very well satis
tieel with their change of government
They were very enthusiastic abcut free
trail even those who did not know what
was meant by It
Som of the American merchants who
went Into business In San Juan and
Ponee during and after the war have
closed up shop But this should not be
taken as a sign of 111 omen for these
were dealers whose support came chiefly
from the aniy and the crowd of Ameri
cans who were attracted to the island by
curiosity and other interests Immediately
after the war A Spanish merchant will
consider that he is doing very well how
ever on an income that an American
could hardly live upon Mr Cook sas
that while the Spanish are very con
servative and do not take readily to In
novations American goods are slowly
gaining ground
The school Sstem Is progressing In an
encouraging manner Teachers are badly
needed There is a normal school at isan

A series of experiments unique even in
the- of the Agricultural Depart
ment hns been approved b Seeretary
Wilson at the Instance of what Is known
as the Pomolcglc il Bureau of that de
partment There were some misgivings as
to tho legal aspect of the proposition but
these hav e been dlspdsed of b a favor
able decision of Ihe Comptroller of the
T i easury
It Is proposed by the Agricultural De
partment to go Into partnership with a
number of merchants and exporters the
terms of the parrnerihlp being that the
United States shall stand all losses and
the exporters reap all the profits Vet It
Is clalmenl by the pqSolosical experts of
the department that the Government will
nap profit enough In the form of scien
tific knowledge to con peusate for any
loss that ma be sustained through the
otherwise uneqinf partnership
The communication of the Secretar of
Agriculture to Comptroller Tracewcll In
regard to the matter is as follows
In the appropriation for Pomologlcal
Investigations 1902 Digest of Appropria
tions r02 page 313 this language Is used
To lnvestlgite In co operation with
the other divisions of the department
and experiment stations of the several
States the market conditions affecting the
fruit trade ofthe United States and for
eign countries and the methods of har
vesting packing storing and shipping
fruit and vegetables and for experimental
shipments of fruits to foreign couitries
Jor the purpose of Increasing the expor
tation of American fruits and for all nec
essary expenses connected with the prac
tical work of the same
Certain questions have arisen in con
nection with the attempt to carry out the
provisions of this appropriation act which
seem to require authoritative decision
These questions have taken form as fol
1 Ma this department under the au
thority of this act enter into
arrangements with dealers and ex
porters whereby the department shall
guarantee a definite minimum net retirn
per package on fruit picked packed ship
ped and sold under directions from the
pomologlst of this department through the
ordinary ciiannels of trade Under such
an agreement the exporter would receive
the net proceeds of sales that is all pro
ceeds after deducting freight and other
charges connected with the shipments and
sales If this net return should be less
than the guaranteed amount the dif
ference bttween the net proceeds ac
tually realized and the guaranteed
return would be paid the exporter out of
the money appropriated for Iomological
investigations Respecting this project
the pomologlst of this department sas
This plan seetns highly desirable If
It can be adopted as under It the shipper
has the incentive of probable profit to
stimulate in him due care and attention
In the handling of the fruit in the beat
possible way lhe department simpl as
sumes the risk of losses due to unfore
seen accidents in transit or to a tem
porar glut and coniequent low price In
the foreign market oa arrival of the con
signment In short t ic department would
In effect agree to make good to the ex
perimental shipper a stipulated price
based on that obtainable at home In case
the shipment for any reason should fall
to realize that price
2 If ou shall decide that the law does
not permit the department to enter Into
arrangements by which minimum prides
may be guaranteed to exporters then the
following question Is presented May the
department contract to defray the whole
or any part of the transportation of fruits
belonging to private owners the packing
shipment etc to be directed by the offi
cials of the department the entire pro
ceeds of the sales going to the person who
owns and ships the fruit
3 If neither of the plans above pre
sented shall meet with your approval
then the question remains Has the de
partment under the Tanguige of the ap
propriation act above quoted authorlt to
purchase fruit outright for experimental
export shipment and sale through com
mercial channels If so may the pre
ceeels of such sales be used for further
purchases In continuing the experimental
shipments as In the first Instance or must
the proceeds of all sales be covered Into
the Treasury as miscellaneous receipts
- 4 1 ncer tne autnoriiy to investigate
the market conditions affecting
tho fruit trade In the United States and
foreign countries nhd the methods of har
vesting packing storing and shipping
fruits and vegetables is It permissible for
the department to ceinduct experiments
with fruits In storage and may fruits for
such experiments be purchased At the
termination of such experiments must the
proceeds of the sale of the fruits found
marketable be covered Into the Treasury
us miscellaneous receipts
If the department is limited to the pur
chase shipment and sale of sich fruits
and vegetables and If the proceeds of
such sales cannot be used In continuing
the shipments the amount appropriated
is altogether too small to allow of experi
mental operations on a scale sufficient to
Influence the exportation of American
fruits to anj appreciable extent The
language of the appropriation is by no
means specific and Inasmuch as the sug
gested plans for co operation In the exper
imental shipments are quite different from
any work heretofore engaged In by this
department the matter Is submitted to
ou for jour advice as to the legality of
the sever il proposed methods
Comptroller Tracewell rendered the fol
lowing decision
Ithout going into the question at
length it may lie said that ou are au
thorized to Incur any reasonable and
necessar expense within the limits of
the appropriation and not otherwise for
bidden bj law to carr out its objects If
then fore you shall d termlne that a
guarantee to private owners or shipp rs
is In jour first suggestion or the pay
ment by the Department of Agriculture
of transportation charges on private ship
ments made under the direction of the
department will best accomplish the ob
ject of appropriation I know no law
which forbids the s ime
It ma not be improper how ever to
suggtst that Just so far as the arrange
ment ou mn make may differ from or
dinary purchase and deliver should be
our care to protect the United States
from Imposition or hiss
In repl to your other enquiries I have
to si that the pro eeis of all sales of
fruit bought from the appropriation eith
er for shipment or storage must under
the provisions of sections 3inj and Xll of
the Revised Statutes be covered into the
Treasurv as miscellaneous receipts on ac
count of proceeds of Government prop

broke her propellor shaft recently w hllo
en route to San Francisco
The Lennox has been a chartered trans

her owners provides that as soon as she

declared this win ue paiu wmim
