THE VERMONT PHOENIX, BRATTLEBORO, FRIDAY, JULY 21, 1890.
GEN. OTIS HAS SUPPRESSED THE NEWS.
MANILA PRESS COltKESPONDENTS UNITE IN A PROTEST.
A despatch from Manila the lltu says
that the constantly Increasing strictness of
the censorhhlp of press despatches from
Manila, which has prevented the cabling
to tho United States of anything that did
not reflect official views of Important
events and conditions resulted In a united
effort on tho part of correspondents there
to secure an abatement of the rigor of the
censorship. The Initiative In this direc
tion was taken a month ago, and resulted
In the framing of a statement which was
presented on Sunday, .TulyO, to Maj.-Gen.
Elwell S. Otis, commanding the military
forces of the United States in the Philip
pine Islands, with a request for permission
to telegraph It to the United States. The
correspondents also asked that they , be al
lowed to cable to their respective papers
all facts, and the different phases of events
I the ransolred there. The correspond-
entshadtwolong Interviews wltn "en.uns,
in the course of which they complained
that tho evident purpose of the censorship
was not to keep Information from the ene
my, but to keep from the public a know.
edge of the real condition of affairs there.
It was also asserted by the correspondents
that newspapers printed In Manila, which
reach the enemy quickly, are permitted to
publUh statements similar to those . which
correspondents are forbidden to cable. It
was made clear to Gen. Otis that the ob
jection was to tho system and not to tho
censor. Gen.Otis finally promised , grca ter
lllipralltv. aereelncto pass all matter that
Interests of the United States. Gen.Otis
appointed Capt. Green of his staff as cen
sor. The statement of the correspondents
is as follows:

We believe the de.pKches err In the declaration
that "the situation la well In hand." and In the
assumption that the Insurrection can be speedily
ended without a greatly increased force.
We think the tenacity of the Filipino purpose

ate unfounded that volunteers are willing to en
gage In further service.

Tho state department made public Tues
day tho substance of reports just received
from Commissioner Denby and Geu. Otis,
which contradict the statements of tho cor
respondents as to tho condition of affairs
In the Philippines. From these It appears
that the experiment of establishing muni
cipal government for tho towns of Cavllo
and Manila has been a great success; that
a number of 'ports have been opened to
trade and "a disposition to accept Ameri
can sovereignty" isoverywhero manifested;
mm inn oniy large rorco or the rebels
which holds together is about 4000 In Tar-
lac province and northern Pampanga, and
that "tbe only hope of tho insurgent lead
ers is in aid from tho United States," and
that this Is tbe influence which enables
them to hold out.
It is reported from Manila that the
natives of the provinces of Albay, South
Cauiarlnes and North Camarlnes are en
deavoring to throw off the domination of
the Tagals, and that there has been some
fighting. The people are said to bo willing
to declare allegiance to tho United States
wnen troops are sent to protect them.
