People Have Ceased to Get Excited
Manila, March 19, via San Francisco,
April 16th. War has become so coni-
if monplace an experience in Manila that
the average citizen no longer ihinks of
becoming excited over it. Every night
some point of the horizon is crimsoned
by the reflection from burning huts
kindled by the soldiers to deprive the
insurgents of hiding places. Every
night quiet is shaken by the firing from
the line encompassing the city. Every
morning brings its pitiful littfe consign
ment of uncomplaining wounded to the
hospital. Manila forms an American
Oasis in the island of Luzon., Around
.the city stretches a thin line 15 miles
long of entrenched soldiers.
The Filipino goes into the field unen
cumbered with useless baggage. Fol
lowing the course of their retreat beyond
Guadeloupe church went the souvenir
enthusiasts, who hang about the Ameri
can army, but they found nothing more
that a few tin cooking utensils and
empty cartridge shells, whose pattern
proves that the insurgents have the verv
lates' style of rifles. Trousers or drawers
a shirt worn outside them, a straw hat,
cartridge belt and rifle, a section of bam
boo stalk fiiled with rice, a ha'idful of
green peppers in a handkerchief these
form the equipment of the Filipino
No finer conntry for defensive fighting
and iio more embarussing for offensive
operations than the land around Pasig
lake could be imagined. The Chinese
are the scavengers of the war. Like
vultures they hover in the waxe of the
army, flocking down upon the ashes of
every hut and the ruins of churches, to
dig out i-tuff that no white man could
possibly use. Being beyond suspicion
of any interest in the hostilities save
gain, they are admitted to the camps
and employed as servant'). Some of
them peddle water and cigarettes on the
line. One, more daring than the most,
crept about the trenches of the Kansas
regiment under a hot fire and did a goo 1
trade. When competitors appeared he
hastened to point out to them the spot
where a soldier had been wounded,
seemingly impressing on them the dan
gers of their position, for they ran away.
The forces of destruction are concen
trated upon the churches. They are all
solid budding9, of stone, so the natives
use them as ' forts. Some church has
served as the keystone ot nearly eveiy
Filipino defense, and the American ar
tillery is compelled to batter them.
Calocan church is a picture of the havoc
of war. There General McArthnr has
his headquarters. The roof, a sky blue
fresco, studded with gilt stars, has jag
ged holes where shells from Dewey's
ships came through. Within the chan
cel rail is the office of the staff, and the
pulpits are used for desks. The rail
holds a string of saddles, a telephone
hangs beside the statue of a saint, while
the telegraph clicks incessantly in the
cove. Cots and hammocks fill the body
of the church, where soldiers are
sprawled smoking and reading when
off duty. A hospital occupies a chapel.
The soldiers do not lack reverence, but
everything must bend before their work.
General Otis has put a stop to the plans
of officers who wanted to bring their
wives and families to Manila. He said :
"This is not a picnic, nor a G. A. R.
encampment. This is war."
