IMPROVEMENTS IN MANILA.
Great Progress Has Been Made
Changing Conditions in the
The Manila papers are just now re
viewing the progress of the. year in
material improvement, which is vory
gratifying and surprising to those who
have not kept pace with what is going
on there, says W. E. Curtis, in the
Chicago Record-Herald. Nearly $4,000,
000 his been expended in local im
provements in 1904, and nearly
$2,000,000 upon a harbor, which will
very soon make Manila the finest port
in the east. The contract provides
for a total expenditure of about $4,000,-
000, which will give 33 feet of water
at mean low tide, and a system of
docks and warehouses unsurpassed in
Europe, Asia or America.
The street car system is nearly fin
ished, with 55 miles of electric road;
20 miles of streets have been widened
in accordance with modern ideas and
requirements; macadamized roads
have been built to all the suburbs; a
complete system of sewerage is be
ing given to a city where there have
been no sewers before, at a cost of
$3,216,473, under the direction of Mr.
Fitzgerald, a Brooklyn engineer, and
when it is finished it will be sufficient
for a population of 400,000 about
double the present population. A new
city hall, a city hospital, a veterinary
hospital, three fire stations, two po
lice stations, and crematories for the
burning of gavbage are being erect
ed. The streets have been cleaned
every day, which id a great novelty for
the people of Manila.
One of the most notable improve
ments are the new 6choolhouses, which
are intended as models to be imitated
by other cities in the island. They
will be the finest ever erected in the
east. The plans were drawn- by Wil
liam Walters, Jr., after a competition
among all the Manila architects.
Several other improvements of a
Eeneral and miblic nature are con
templated, such as the extension of
streets, the laying out of parks, the
enlargement of the water supply,
which is eood. but only sufficient for
the present population, and the erec
tion of new and more convenient
buildings for several of the municipal
IN CLUBS AND THEATERS.
Attractions of the Places of Social
and Public Amusement
There are many clubs in Manila,
and these take a prominent part in
the social life. Among them are the
Army and Navy club, the Univer
slty club and the Insular club.
There are several theaters in the city,
but good attractions are very few. An
occasional vaudeville company is the
usual American contribution. The
Spaniards have a long session of light
oDera in their native tonsue which is
very pleasant for them, and the thor
ough student of their language, but
none others will enjoy it, as the music
is secondary to the comedy. The Span
ish dances which are given between the
acts are excellent, however. There is a
shorter season of Itajlan opera, when
first class music may be heard. The
only permanent organization is an Aus
tralian vaudeville aggregation, which
like the music halls of California during
the gold excitement of '49. Only men at
tend these performances and drinks of
all kinds are served at tables scattered
about the hall. The performers sing
coon songs in the Cockney dialect, ovef
work the slap-stick and are altogether
of the "rough-house" variety. When an
actress makes a hit, the audience shows
its appreciation by throwing silver dol
lars at her.

of the venture until recently. Now the
trees have been found in a condition to
produce rubber, and the work of gath

SOCIAL LIFE IN MANILA.
During "Heated Term" It Is Dull, But
Gay and Lively the Oilier
. Nine Months. :
The social life of the American rcsL
dent in the Philippine islands differs
greatly in many respects from that of
the same class of people at home.
In everything, and everywhere, the
military takes first place. The wives
and daughters of generals, colonels,
and even lieutenants, are, generally
speaking, the arbiters of social des
tiny, and if a civilian fails to meet their
approval, he may as well abandon his
social aspirations. He may have fre
quent invitations tjj "Mrs. Governor's"
dinners and to Mrs. Commissioner's"
teas, but if his name does not appear
among those whose "presence is de
sired at 'Mrs. General's' reception," ha
will be compelled to admit that his so
cial success is far from complete.
During the three months of April,
May and June known as the "heat
ed term" social life in Manila is ex
tremely dull, says a writer in the Los
Angeles Times. It is far too hot for
dances and other formal affairs, even
if there was anyone at home to take
part, and during this season everyone
who can possibly leave the city makes
a pilgrimage to Japan, or at least to
the mountains of Beuguet. Baguio, in
Benguet, is already virtually the
summer capital, as the governor, com
missioners and every other official
who can do so, spends the greater part
of the hot season there.
The climate of Baguio is very de
lightful at all times except during se
vere rainy seasons. The cool and brac
ing air can hardly be accounted for by
the attitude alone, although this is con
siderable. Its only drawback is its inac
cessibility. It is reached by a difficult
trail over which the traveler is carried
in a chair on the shoulders of Igrotte
bearers. Millions of dollars have been
spent in a so-far unsuccessful effort to
complete a highway from the coast to
this Mecca of all Americans exiled by
choice or military command to these far
away islands. When this road is com
pleted, if it ever is, the government will
use every effort to secure an electric
line through from Manila and, when
this has been accomplished, Baguio will
become the summer capital, and be to
Manila what Delhi is to Bombay.
During the remaining nine months
of the year, the social life of Manila is
gay and lively. It Is, in fact, too stren
uous for the climate. Dinners, dances
and teas follow each other in quick suc
cession. Launch parties on the river
and the bay alternate, with dinners on
the steamers and men-of-war, and ho

Miss Minnie Schlungel, of 'Beloit,
went to the Philippines some time ago
to marry Hoke Simpson, also of Beloit.
The bride writes t ome that all the na

them upon their arrival at San Es-
taban, after their marriage at Manila,
and escorted them to their home in
Santa Maria, a distance of four miles.
The bride and groom rode in a two
wheeled cart drawn by an ox, and
their baggage was borne in carts drawn
by bull teams, then a cavalcade of 200
natives followed on foot. At every
house they passed the rest of the natives
came out to greet them. In the even
