I u, '-. r i Pen Picture of Cavlte Vlejo, tae Old eat Town In' the Island Group Former Home of Eimilio , Affulnaldo. Special Philippine Letter. THE town we are in is called Ca vite Viejo, meaning Old Cavite, and it is said by the natives to be the oldest town in the entire Phil ippine group, not excepting Manila or New Cavite. It has a population of about 8,000 inhabitants, and is situated on an arm of Manila bay, about 20 miles from Manila. On a. clear day the latter ean be plainly seen with the aid of field glasses. The two tilings of most importance in this' tow a are the old ruined church and the house that was at one time owned and occupied by Aguinaldo, the rebel chieftain. The church, which is reported to be over 300 years old, is in very bad condition, owing to the bombarding of the Spanish gunboats in 1S86. The picture gives a fair view of the church and the convent in its pres ent state. The convent is also in bad condition, and cannot be used for any purpose whatever, but the front part of the church is still used for religious serv ices. Large holes can be seen inside where cannon balls went through the three-foot tone walls. The church, like the rest of the Phil ippine churches, is not supplied with seats or benches like those in the "States," but instead has a stone floor on which the worshipers kneel, or squat down on their heels. The serv ices are somewhat similar to the Cath olic services in the churches of the United States, but instead of an organ they have a brass band. The natives as a rule "are very re ligious and say their prayers four or five times a day, in fact every time the church bells ring-. No matter what work they are at or how interesting1 the subject they are discussing when the bells ring they stop instantly and say their prayers. One peculiar thing about the hombres (men) is that as soon as the church services are over THE OLD CHURCH AND CONVENT AT CAVITE VIEJO. they go directly to the cock pit and for several hours enjoy themselves at thir favorite sport, cock fighting. Along the shore for a distance of about 4-00 yards near the church are large earthworks or trenches, the work being done at the time the place was bombarded in 1S6. Another picture gives a view of the large 12-foot cannon in the churcJhjard, mounted on a mahogany carriage. 'It is trained on New Cavite, three miles across the bay, but the writer has never heard of its ever having done any dam age there. The cracks in the gun can be plainly seen, where our troops tried to explode it with gun.otton. CANNON IN CHURCHYARD. The third illustration is Aguinaldo's house, which is quite a mansion com pared with the other native houses. It is about 25 years old, but is still m ex cellent condition considering the rough usage it has naa since company M took possession of it, over six months ago. The glass windows seen in the pic ture can be opened up, leaving almost three sides of the front room open to the fresh sea breezes. On the inside of this room the ceiling is supported by large,- carved mahogany posts , finely varnished. The floor, also of mahog any, was at one time polished, but this was soon worn on by the soldiers rough brogans. , ' ' ' . On the ceiling of this room is one of the finest large oil paintings that the writer has ever seen. . It is called "Fili pino liberated." The picture is of oval shape' and measures 15 by 30 feet, being J s . 1 i 9 . . . , done ill bcicim wiun. ( - It represents a ' Filipino . senoriti in full native dress sitting on ' stone steps by the sea shore looking out pver the water. In the distance can be seen the rising sun coming over the' moun tains with the sunbeams glistening on Makes t.s food more royu. awiNa r the waves. With' her right hand the senorita holds aloft the tricolored Fil ipino fiagy while at her feet lies the Spanish flag with the polo broken in two places. ' -To the left of the flag lies two broken handcuffs and a ball and chain which," tsi all appearances, she had just cast off. .The features of the senorita are of the oriental type, and are said to be a likeness to Aguinaldo's sister. It is certainly evident that the picture was painted before the Amer ican ocoupancy of the islands, because if it hadn't been there would have been another flag there. Altogether there are four rooms in this part of the house, the others being used at one time for a sitting-room, dining-room and a kitchen, all having the walls and. ceilings painted with fancy designs, such as native fruits, flowers, birds and butterflies. The east wing of the building (not iftM ll r v i ,. AGUINALDO'S FORMER HOME. shown in the picture) is at present oc cupied by the officers, the hospital, the orderly-room and the commissary of fice. To have an idea of the size of the building- one must remember that there are 90 men quartered in the first half. The company had some heavy fatigue duty fixing up the lower part of the house. They put a tile floor in it and had two native prisoners make seven large bamboo dining tables with seats. Then they built d large bake oven in an outhouse and put stone walks all over the grounds. A large cistern furnishes rain water for all purposes. A nipa shack in the back yard was repaired and cleaned up and is now a fisst-class canteen. The lower part of the quarters is now used as the guard-house, dining room and company shoe and barber shop. The company barber, while on a visit to Manila a short time ago, invested Tn an Edison graphophone, and every evening the company has a vocal and musical concert with the latest songs and music from the states. The read ers may be assured that the entertain ment is greatly appreciated by the sol diers who have been "on the line," away from civilization for over 18 months. The duties of the company are con siderably harder than they were in the States. They do a guard every third day and have to drill two hours a day when off duty. Every night a detail of 12 men patrols the outskirts of the town for a few hours. It is rumored that in a short time there will be a native police force in town, which, of course, will make the soldier s duty fnuch lighter. On August 2G the long-looked-for flag-raising" took place at the presi dent's house. Althoueii it was rainin? tliere were about 200 natives present At ten o clock sharp Capt. MeQuiston then in command of company M, pulled the rope which unfurled the flag,- the native band played "The Star Spanq-led Banner" and all present took off their hats. The captain then made a short speech, which the presidente interpret ed in I agalo. An hour afterward, when the rain had ceased, the band sere naded the company, and played, l piece of music that the bandmaster h ,d com posed himself and named the Fourth Infantry march." a. A.

Mr. Bryan Surprised, but Un ; dismayed by Defeat ; ? PRAISE FOR CAMPAIGN . LEADERS. Vanowlehed Candidate Give Some .Reaaone "Why Ula Party Failed. Contcat. Between Plutocracy and Uemocrucy to Continue. LINCOLN, Neb., Nov. 9. William J. Bryan has given out the following state ment concerning the election: "The result was a surprise to me) and the magnitude of the Republican victory was a surprise to our opponents, as well as te those who veted our ticket. It is possible to analyze the returns until they are more ceuiglcte, but speaking generally we (eew to hare gained lu the arge cities and te have loat m the small er citiei and in tke cotiatry. "The Republican were able te secure tickets er passes for all their voters wbe were away front home, and this gave them considerable advantage. We have no way ef knowing at thia time how luuch money was aawat lu the purchase of votes and in ewlouiaatiou. But while these would account for some of the Re publican gains, they could not account for the widespread increase in the Re publican vote. The prosperity argument was probably the most potent one useu by the Republicans. They compared pres ent conditions with the panic times of 1&)3 to la-UU. and this argument had weight with those who did not stop to consider the reasons for the change. The appeal to 'stand by the president while the war is on' had a great deal of influ ence among those who did not realize that a war against a doctrine of self gov ernment in the Philippines must react upon us in this country. e made au honest light upon an honest platform, and having done our duty as we saw it we have nothing to regret. "y e are dafeated, but not discouraged. The fight must go oa.. I am sure that Re publican policies will be repudiated by the people when the tendency of these policies is fully understood. The contest between plutocracy and democracy can not end until one or the other is com pletely triumphant.' Concerning himself Mr. Lryan said: "I have come out of the campaign with perfect health, and a clear conscience. I did my most to bring success to the prin ciples for which I stood. Mr. Stevenson did all that he could. Senator Jones itnd the members of the Democratic, Populist, Silver Republican and auti-iniperialist committee did all they could. Mr. Hearst sad his antedates in the club er- gamzatiea put forth their best eaorts. Our newspapers, our campaign speeches and our local organizations all did their part. I have no fault te Sod and no re proaches. I shall continue te take an active interest ia politics as long as I live. I believe it te he the duty of citi zens to do so, and iu addition te my in terest as .a citizen I feel that it will re quire a lifetime of work to repay the po litical friends who bare done so much for me. I shall not be a senatorial candi date before the legislature which has been elected. Senator Allen deserves the senatorship which goes to the Populists. Mr. Hitchcock and Mr. W. H. Thomp son are avowed candidates for the sen atorship. They both deserve well of the party, and I am too Ki'ateful to them for past support to stand in their way even if I desired a seat in the senate." Mr. Bryan said he had no other plans at present than to remain at home until he had recovered from the fatigue of campaigning. He denied the report that he would remove from Nebraska and make Texas his home. NEBRASKA CLOSE. A Small Majority For Molvlnley. Poynter Probably Itc-electcu. OMAHA, Nov. W. Complete returns from two-thirds of the counties in Ne braska and scattering returns from the balance sBow McKinley has carried Ne braska by a plurality of at least 2.000. An equal number of returns on the state ticket indicate that Nebraska has re elected Governor Poynter and the entire state ticket by pluralities ranging from 500 to 1,800 ovor the Republicans, the governor being high man. If the balance ef the state skill skew tbe same percentage ef gain and loss Poyntar's electiep is certaia. and tke counties to be heard from being mostly in the western part of the state, it is fair to presume that this is the case. The legislature will likely be decided by Douglas county, ia which it will take the official count to determine the vote. The World-Herald, Democrat, claims the lieutenant governor will cast the deciding vote in the upper kouse and that the low er house ii evenly divided, with two places in doubt. The Republican state committee, which Wednesday night gave out the claim that Dietrich and the Republican stte ticket had won from 5,000 to 7,000 majority, has scaled down "close to the danger line" and claimed the election of the state ticket by from 1,000 to 2,000. In Douglas county the count is close, and charges of fraud are made y the Democrats. The Republicans claim to have electud one out of three senators and six out of nine representatives, while the Democrats claim two senators and all the representatives. Governor Hooseveit icrsaadcu, NEW YORK, Nov. Four or five hundred neighbors and friends of Gov ernor Roosevelt serenaded him at Oyster Bay last night. The villagers marched to the governor's residence escorted by 200 mounted nita, and in the procession were 50 wagons decorated with bunting. Arrived at the house, the governor spoke briefly, thanking them for the demonstra tion and spoke of local matters, in which he takes much interest. He said he be-lieved'the- election of McKinley made it certain there Would be four years of great prosperity to . the country and believed the country was entering upon a golden era that v-ould eclipse any period iu its history.
