Chicago, March 23 A special dis
patch to the record from Washington
says: Alj'itant-General Corbin says
nothing has occurred in the history of
the country to endear the volunteer
troops to tbe regular organization as
tbelr conduct at Manila during the
present movement on Malolos. Not
only have they shown excellent dis
cipline, but they hive eagerly sought
duty on the firing line, andj have never
faltered -in an advance on the enemy.
There has been no shirking In their reg
iments and no complaint when called
upon to bear the brunt of an assault.
Their record from the moment they
embarked to the present time has been
excellent, and the reports received at
the war department, General Corbin
says, Indicate that any attempt at send
ing them homo for muster 'out before
the campaign is completed would excite
a riot. They desire to remain as long as
there is any fighting to be done, and the
department, in recognition of their ex
cellent service, will not order them
horie until the military problem iu the
Philippines is solved, or the volunteers
formally request to be released.
Floods in California. '
Stockton, Cel., March 28. Reports
from many sections of the San Joaquin
valley show that the flood caused by the
late heavy rains is increasing instead of
receding, as it was anticipated it would.
Water is still pouring in on the lowlands
but in some places the area covered is
not increasable, owing to the depth of
the pockets. In some placas the water
is bo deep that the owners do not expect
to have their land drained before July,
too late for planting a second crop.
There are many small streams in this
section, and it is these that are causing
the moat troub'e, the larger ones being
Kenerally high banked. In some places
the floods will be beneficial. It Is es
timated that the flooded area covets
nearly 30,000 acres.

edge of the exact hour of the return,
there were only a few people gathered

PLAN IS BEING
Headquarters is to be Established at
Washington In a Building to be
Erected Especially for the Society.
New York, March 29. The Herald
says that plans are afoot to reorganize
the National Red Cross Society, with a
view greatly increasing its scope.
Primarily, it is intended to establish
permanent heaiiquarters of the National
Red Cross Society in Washington. The
proposed plan contemplates the erection
nf a building at Washington to be
devoted solely to the u?es of the society.
The proposed plan does not contem
plate extending the work of reorganiza
tion at present to Cuba, Hawaii or the
Philippinelslanda. In the United States,
the country will be divided into depart
ments as they now exist. Each depart
ment will be administered by a chief,
who will have control of the territory
under bis charge, acd who will in turn
be responsible to the executive com mitlee
of the board of diiectors. It will be the
duty ot each chief to so organize his de
partment that lecal Red Cross societies
will be within his jurisdicton. These
societies will be responsible to bim.
Tbe plan does not contemplate that
any person oftnected with the society
shall receivt pay for seivices, except tbe
chief of staff at Washington, and the
clerical and eimilei labor which will be
absolutely necessary to employ.
Consensus of Opinion at Washington is

London, Marcli 30. The British
foreign office has received an official dis
patch confirming the news from Aplitv

an Associated Press dispatch sent out
last night, which said that the trouble
growing out of election of a king had)
taken a more serious turn and resulted
in the shelling of the coitBt villages by
the United States cruiser Philadelphia,
Admiral Kautx commanding, and the
British cruisers Porpoiso and Royalist.
The bombardment has continued inter
mittently lor eight days. Several villages
have been burned, aud there have been,

less than 15 per cent, or 10 percent moiw
than the loss in ordinary years, Mr.
Belts is a c mservative man. He places
the loss at a lower figure than the ma
jority do. He says, however that the
heaviest loss will be looked for during
the coming two weeks to a month, for
the reason that feed is so tc.irce that the
sheep cannot reenperate from the weak
condition in which the severe winter
weather left them, and tho ewes cannot
