An article in Freedom, nubllsihed In Ma nila, concerning alleged exDressions of Most Rev. P. T. Chapelle, the apostolic delegate to tne islands, will give some ln- signt into the conditions of religious mat ters in America's new iossesslons- Free dom quotes what appeared in a rival pa per as the utterances of the reverend fa ther, and flatly contradicts it, on his au thority. Following is the reported quota tion from 'Archbishop Chapelle: "I know'thelr importance in this eonn- try( and am openly prepossessed In their xavor. ir the mars occupy parishes they will be considered as elements of order ASSEMBLY HALL DURING EXERCISES and therefore American agents. As Amer ica Is thoroughly convinced of the ne cessity for ttie retention of the friars in the Philippines, the monastic orders will be given the necessary prestige which will be much greater than It was during the Spanisii regime. Father McKlnnon, who will be appointed to a high position in the archipelago, will protect the friars, and be the mediator between tlhem and the American authorities." In contradiction of this, Freedom says: "The archbishop is not at the present time prepared to make expression of any kind. He is here to examine carefully into tho situation, and not until he has been thoroughly informed will any report be made. "The article referred to caused much comment in Filipino circles yesterday, and while the better classes did not believe a word of It, and looked upon it as the work of some one trying to make trouble, there were a large number who took It all In and expressed themselves very strongly in regard to the matter. Tho wording was so strongly antagonistic to the gen eral feeling among Filipinos, toward the friars, that the thought of the possibility of it being true was very repugnant to them, and the expressions used were very harsh. The Filipinos have had every faith in the proper adjustment of the religious question by Archbishop Chapelle, and may continue to have." As Filipino fortunes ebb in the struggle with American soldiers some of tho mer cenary creatures drawn to the rebel stand ard at the commencement of the insur rection quit or fall at the hands of the pursuing columns. In a recent issue ol Freedom, th fate of an American traitor who deserted his regiment is told. "A deserter named Scott, of the Sixth arUllerj't "who held a major's commission In the insurgent army, was found dead with a Krag bullet-hole In his head, near Alphonso, after tho rebels were driven from their position at Magelkmes. "Another renegade has received his just deserts. The man who enlisted to defend -the flag that is the emblem of all that civilization means, and deserted it to wear an ofncer'6 straps in the army of an en emy to the flag, and all that it stands for, has gone to bis death wearing the uniform that proved the perfidy that reigned In his heart.

OBSERVED BY CHILDREN WASHINGTON'S BIRTHDAY IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. Varied Entenninment in the Several Buildings Library in Couch School Dedicated. Nearly a thousand children celebrated Washington's birthday yesterday at the Harrison-street school, and it was hard to tell which wore the happiest smiles, the faces of the school children or those of the visitors. The programme began with exercises by 250 little tots belonging to the primary grades, who saluted the flag with much patriotic ardor, lisping out tha words, "Wo plende allegiance to our flag, and the republic for which It stands, one IN HONOR OF WASHINGTON'S Bill SCHOOL RIBBON DRILL. nation, Indivisible, with liberty and Justice for all." This was followed by a song by the whole assembly of children, "Co lumbus Sailed Across the Sea," after which little Freddie Weltzen recited some verses about the man who "loved the truth and hated lies, and minded what his mother taught him." A flag song was then sung to "Our Washington" by 14 youngsters, who waved 14 flags valiantly in the air at the words: Thou art known throughout the Korth, Our Washington. South would set thy glories forth. Our Washington. Braie hero, brae hero, thy name shall lle; Brave hero, brae hero, praise will we give. Russell Handley, a very small boy with a very big voice, then came courageously to the front and explained about the origin of the flag and Its colors how the red sajs to us, "Be brave"; the white says, "Be pure," and the blue says, "Be true." The next number was decidedly realistic, and brought forth a storm of applause. Six little boys entered upon the scene, and, ranging themselves alongside a real cherry tree, were met by a ruthless de stroyer In the shape of another little boy, who carried a hatchet and was garbed appropriately in a blue cocked hat, a white waist and red shoes. He Immediately began putting his dangerous weapon to practical use upon the tree, while his companions sang the following song, to the tune of "Yankee Doodle": Once there was a little toy Who had a little hatchet; He ran all round In roguish Joy To find a tree to catch It. Chorus. O Georgle, Georgie, no, no, no. Naughty little sinner; You ought to go to bed. And go without a bit of dinner. At last he found a cherry tree Within his mama's garden. He laughed and laughet: m wicked glee: See how his heart did harden. (Chorus.) He chopped and chopped the cherry tree With that bright little hatchet. He never thought tha sometime he Would surely have to catch it. (Chorus.) Georgle, Georgle. honest child. Honest little chopper, He may hae been a little -nlld. But he didn't tell a whopper. At the conclusion of this song, the tree having been laid low, the young hero marched off tho stage with a proud air, his hatchet swung victoriously over one shoulder. One of the prettiest exercises of the afternoon was the ribbon drill by 20 little girls, whose fresh, Innocent faces and charming poses were received with over whelming enthusiasm by the big audience that packed the assembly hall. They were dressed In white, with long red, white and blue streamers, floating from each shoulder, the ends of which were caught in the hand. A gay little song was sung, which had for Its chorus: Then hurrah for the flag. Our countrj's flag. Its stripes and white stars too. There is no flag In any land Like our own Red, White and Blue. A series of unusually picturesque poslngs and callsthenlc exercises followed this; intricate marching figures were gone through with, the two small leaders ac quitting themselves with praiseworthy skill and ability. An assembly motion song, that was full of life and motion, and showed to advan tage the excellent training the children are receiving, closed this part of the ex ercises. The second part of the programme was devoted to the children of the grammar grades about (0 altogether. This opened also with a salute to the flag, after which an assembly song to the flag was sung. David Robinson then gave a boy's reflec tions on the achievements of George Washington, closing with the suggestion that "if he had really wanted to be some thing nice, he should have "been head of a football team." Sixteen girls In white, with thdr hair In long braids, then came forward, and gave a strikingly odd and pretty pole drill with four very long red poles. Their motions were graceful, and the perform ance a. most creditable one in every way. Blanche Delury's recitation to Washing ton elicited much applause, but still more followed her song, "Mount Vernon Bells," which was given in a delightfully clear, fresh voice. The flag drill given by 1C girls In white, each bearing the national colors, was as artistic a number as any on the pro gramme, owing to the picturesque tab leau presented as they stood in groups of four, the girls in front with bended knee, their eyes turned up to the flags they held aloft. Following, this Sam Rosenthal ex plained with commendaole ease and dis tinctness the symbolism of the Stars and j Stripes, after which the exercises closed with a particularly pretty assembly song, ( a bright, merry thing, that was full of I morning sunshine and gladness, and showed careftil musical training on the part of the teachers. The, entire- programme was a most en joyable one to tho hundreds of people present, who commented in most flatter ing terms upon the successful work of the teachers.- Those to whom credit THDAT, AT THE HARRISON-STREET particularly is due are: Miss Murch, Miss Mosher and Mrs. Snook, of the primary grade; and Miss Thompson, Miss Brannan, Miss Haettlnger, Miss Colburn, Miss Yo cum. Miss Cleland, Miss Dickinson, Mrs. Greene and Miss Bain, of the grammar grades. AT PARK SCHOOL. Pleasing; and Varied Programme In Keeping "With the Day. One of the prettiest of the school enter tainments given, yesterday afternoon took nlace at the Park snhonl. The hnll nnil larce stage were attractlvplv der.oratpil with Oregon grape, laurel, hanging baskets or rem and a plentiful supply of ribbon, bunting and flags, while, In the front of the room hung, side by side, .large por traits of Washington and Lincoln. A large crowd was present, and proved very appreciative. The programme was bright, and decid edly a departure from trm old rfvl nt school entertainments. In many of the numbers the young entertainers were beautifully srarbed In the onstumM nt tho Colonial Period, and pnthnslnnUfntlv toh resented historical personages of that time, uncle Sam, George and Martha Washington were much in evidence, the porirayai or which were excellent.

Memorial to Cnptain John H. Coach, Distinguished Pioneer. At the Couch school, the library donated by the daughters of the late Captain Couch was formally ded cated. School Directors Strowbrldge-, Williams and War ren were present, and gave short talks to the children. The former told of the kind and benevolent character of Captain Couch, after whom the school was named. Mr. "Warren urged the pupils to use the beautiful library for something more than an ornament,' and" said that they would never regret search for the hidden knowl edge In those volumes. Irene Higgins then read the following sketch of Captain Couch: "Eighty-nine years ago today there waB born at Newburyport,. Mass., a boy who was destined to an active and "eventful j career. Early In life a voice called to him from th8 sea. It was the yoice of 1 those bravo and adventurous spirits who I for -many generations had explored the ! seas or tracked the wide waste of waters J with ships- freighted with commercial prod i ucts and enterprise. I "Before the mast on this great high 1 way of nations, the lad was trained and grew to manhood, until at last he became master of his ve&sel. This man was Cap tain John H. Couch, whose honored name this school bears. After several years of varied and successful experience on the sea. In 1840, at the age of 23 years, Jie was placed in command of a ship the Maryland owned by a distinguished New England merchant. Captain Couch was not only master of the vessel, but was entrusted with the entire cargo in a voy ago to these far-away Pacific shores, which were then beginning to attract com mercial enterprise. "Two years later a second voyage was made In a ship, the Chenamos, named after an Indian whose favorable acquaintance Captain Couch had made on his first voy age to the Columbia river. In June, 1842, the Chenamos reached the rapids Just below Oregon City. At this time Oregon City was the principal settlement south of the Columbia river, occupied by the Hud eon's Bay Company. Here Captain Couch opened a store for the disposal of his cargo, sent back his ship and remained five years. In the meantime, while at Oregon City, he laid claim to a tract of land, on which this building is located, and now known as Couch's addition to the city of Portland. As this region was in dispute between the United States and England, no sufficient title to hl9 claim was obtained until the rights of the United States were acknowledged and the dona tion land claim act was passed. "In 1847 he left Oregon City and returned home by the way of China, reaching New buryport In 1848. He did not remain long in his native city, for in the fall of th!a year a company of shipping merchants of New York city secured Captain Couch as master of the bark Mondanna, and on January 12, 1849, he sailed for the Colum bia, Captain Flanders going as first mate. The ship reached Portland In August, and Captain Couch established a store, while Captain Flanders took charge of the ship. The next year, 1850, Captains Couch and Flanders were united In "business, as they had been In friendship, and these relations continued for 20 years, and were only severed by death. "While Captain Couch never sought of fice, yet during these 20 years, from 1850 to 1870, he filled many Important positions of trust under the territorial, federal and state governments, and so acceptable was his service that changes in administra tion did not affect his official relations. "Of his personal qualities, Captain Couch was strong, robust and energetic. He had excellent judgment, unquestioned Integ rity, and great executive ability, and while possessed of an Iron will, he was modest and unassuming, simple and open candid as a child, and as tender as a woman. He was loyal and devoted in his friend ships; just, generous and kind In his deal ings with everybody. And when, In Jan uary, 1876, after a brief sickness, death closed his active and useful career, every place of business In this city was closed, and the entire community paid tribute to his worth and memory. "And, although 30yearshas passed away since he was laid to rest, yet in conversing with his few remaining associates to ob tain the facts of this brief sketch, with one accord they extol his manly virtues, and wRh moistened eyes speak of the kindly, genial friend and companion of those early pioneer days in Oregon. These events and asrociatlons of his life have been revived by the generous and nohle act of his children In bestowing this munificent library upon the school that bears hla name. It will be both our duty and our pleasure to keep alive the story of his life; to use and to hold in trust this library for those who are to come after us and occupy our places, and to cherish In everlasting and kindly remem brance those who have so graciously made this donation." This was followed by short quotations from standard authors, and recited by the following pupils: Louise Hagner, Minnlo Cohn, Evelyn Cohn, Clara Boot, Jessie Wallace, Mildred Noyes, Emily Hcwlston, Helen Brlgham, Hazel Young, Juliette Bowman. Inez Cummings, Mary Keegan, Grace O'Nell, Celeste Moore. Jetty Bo lander, Mildred Rhlnstrom, Walter Gard ner. Hoyt Catlln, Frank Korell and Lillian O'Brien. As an example as to what use the books can be put to, tho principal had six girls who graduated from the school the first part of this month, tell of what they read from the new library. Their stories were given without notes, and were related in good style. The subjects spoken op were: "The Revolutionary War," Evelyn Cohn; "First Voyage of Columbus." Minnie Cohn; "Second Voyage- of Columbus," Mildred Noyes; "China," Jessie Wallace; "Cortez and Montezuma," "Katie FItz Gibbon: "The Childhood of Pizarro," Clara Boot. A slumber song was sung by Shannah and Vida Cumming, after which the en tertainment closed with "America," by the audience. At Fnilinsr School. Washington's birthday was commemo rated at the Falling school by a short gen eral programme. Several school hymns were given, and also many patriotic songs. Professor I. W. Pratt, the prinolpal, talked to the pupils for a considerable time on the father of his country, telling them of his glorious deeds on the battle-field and of his wise actions as a statesman He related many beautiful Incidents of Washington, which were much appreciated by the pupils. The primary grades were dismissed Immediately after Professor Pratt's talk, while the grammar grades took, themselves to their several rooms I and completed the programme with recita tions, more songs and talks by the teach ers. "Wllllams-AvenHe School. At Williams-avenue school. East Side, exercises appropriate to the anniversary of Washington's birthday were held la the assembly hall at 2 o'clock. The pu pils decorated the platform with Ivy and Oregon grape. There was also a profuse display of flags, the national colors and green foUage forming a pleasing contrast. The guests were provided with chairs, while the pupils were marched from the various recitation-rooms and took their place in the assembly hall, facing the stand. Then came the salute of the Amer ican flag. Professor Pratt leading, which was very prettily done. The color-bearers assembled on the platform with flags and gave the salute. "Dear Native Land" was given by the school, with fine effect. "The Life of Washington" was set forth in a series of short sketches touching tha various phases of the character of Wash ington. There were short historical Kerns of his life from boyhood to his death. Following this exercise, pupils of fehe sixth grade sang "Mount Vernon Bells," which was well rendered. Rev. Dr. H. W. Kellogg, pastor of the Taylor-street church, was then introduced by Professor Pratt, and he gave a short and instructive talk, highly pleasing to the children. He said that he had been wondering what he could say that his au dience did not already know, and then said he had one new item, and that was he had recently met a man who attended the funeral of Washington. Dr. Kellogg then proceeded to give some pleasing inci dents. He told how he had visited tha grave of the mother of Washington and spoke of her qualities as a mother and worthy of her great son. Then he had gone to Mount Vernon and stood before tho tomb of the great Washington and looked Inside, where the precious dust was sleeping. He had heard the salutes of the passing steamers as they passed up and down the Potomac river, in honor of the "Father of His Country." Dr. Kellogg gave many other Interesting incidents, and then said he considered that one of the things In the character of Washing ton is that he was truthful. He said that he did not know whether the cherry tree story is true or not, but he was sure Washington was truthful, because he had been trustworthy and trusted by his coun trymen. He had also been a man- of sound Integrity, and was an example worthy of the emulation of all. At the close the pupils evinced their appreciation of Dr. Kellogg's address by clapping their hands. The exercises were concluded by the school singing "America." At other East Side school buildings, ow ing to the lack of assembly halls, general exercises were omitted, but -In all the rooms there were short patriotic pro grammes, and lessons from the life of Washington were set out by the teachers, or by concert exercises. ALASKA WORKER Gained 44 Founds by Leaving off Cof fee and Talcinir Postnni Food Coffee. Some people in Alaska have work to do. A widow woman, Mrs. Adda Crosaley, of Juneau, says she has been doing the cook ing for eight men through tne winter, and during the summer for 15 more. She went to Alaska an Invalid, and bad "been in poor health four or five years before going. It seems that her sickness was caused and kept up by the use of coffee. When she finally discovered the real causa she abandoned coffee, and finding Postum Cereal Coffee In the stores, took up Its use. She says: "I commenced using it once a day for two months, then twice a day. I only weighed 80 pounds when I started, and could hardly get up and down the stairway. After leaving off coffee and be ginning the use of Postum, I took up the work for eight men. I improved steadily, and In December last weighed 124 pounds, which is more than I have weighed for 20 years. My face Is round and ruddy. Friends say If It was not for my gray hair I would pass for 20 very easily.
