HUSTLE THE FILIPINOS.
General Mac-Arthur Will Hurry Up
New York, Nov. 10.—Major General
Mac Arthur, says a Washington special
to the Herald, will personally direct the
vigorous military operations to be di
rected against the Filipino insurgents.
General Mac Arthur has clearly indicated
that as soon as the lainy season has •
ended he will take personal command of
the troops. This decision has received
the emphatic approval of the president. '
The plans of the war department com
municated to General Mac Arthur for
suppressing the rebellion contemplate
the division of Luzon into districts and
the mobilization of sufficient troops in
those districts to effectually shatter any
insurgent forces that may be operating ■
therein. General Mac Arthur is appar- '
ently confident that he will iiud large |
bodies of insurgents and is laying his
plans to catch them between cross-tirt-n.
The details of the operations must
necessarily be left to him, but the
authorities have indicated clearly that
the insurrection must be crushed "during
the dry season. In army circles the
suggestion is made that it might be ad
vantageous to offer a reward for the ap
prehension of Aguinaldo. Officers are
convinced that his capture would have
an important effect in bringing about an
end of the insurrection. Aguinaldo
would, if alive, be a burden upon the !
administration, and, while the authori
ties do not wish bis death, it is con
i ceded if he should be killed during the
forthcoming operations the situation
would be materially simplified.
Organizing a Labor Party.
New York, Nov. 10—Henry White,
general secretary of the United Garment
Workers, makes a statement to the ef
! feet that a movement has been started
| for tbe organization of a national labor i
noiitical party in sympathy with the
democratic party and to be affiliated
with the national association of demo
cratic clubs. Mr. White says that this (
party, while it is composed exclusively
of members of labor organizations, will
