Pen Picture of Cavlte Vlejo, tae Old
eat Town In' the Island Group
Former Home of Eimilio ,
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
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.
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
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

steps by the sea shore looking out pver

tains with the sunbeams glistening on

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
ll r v i ,.
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
The lower part of the quarters is
now used as the guard-house, dining
room and company shoe and barber
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
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.

Mr. Bryan Surprised, but Un
; dismayed by Defeat ; ?
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.
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. Dangerous fallacies- had been
laid at rest by the emphatic vote of the
people. and that which four years ago was
only stunned; had n$w been buried.
