Stars and Stripes Float Oter Thirty-
six School Itaildins in the
Philippine Capital.
Following Is the report of George P. An
derson, Superintendent of Education in
Manila, to tee Provost Marshal General,
of the flag-ralslne there In celebration of
Washington's birthday:
"I have the honor to submit the follow
ing report of the ceremonies and circum
stances attending the raising of the flags
donated to the Manila public schools "by
La. Fayette Post, No. 140, G. A. R., of New
York City.
"Colonel John TV. French, Twenty-second
United States Infantry, a prominent
member of said post, was requested to be
present and direct the ceremonies, as the
donators of the flags so desired. He ful
filled this mission most successfully dur
ing the three days, February 21 to 23, 1900.
assisted principally by Chaplain Edward
H. Fitzgerald, of the Twenty-second In
fantry, and the Superintendent of Public
Knmlier of Schools in Manila.
"Manila has at present 41 public schools
In 3C buildings, most of the instruction be
ing distributed, except for one high and
common-grade school of S00 pupils and
three schools of 300 pupils each. Into many
small buildings. Instead of being gathered
into a less number of six, eight and 12
room suitable buildings. So the gallant
Colonel found a campaign mapped out for
him when he encountered the Superin
tendent upon the morning of February 21.
During the three days mentioned, wi'h
rapid driving he was able to be present
at 25 of the school buildings and raise the
flag over them. Flags were raised over
the remaining 11 buildings by the Amer
ican and native schoolteachers under bis
general directions.
"The flag-raising was deferred a short
time so that it might be accomplished
upon the anniversary of the birth of our
great first President and In connection
with the public exercises held in the
schools during the three days mentioned.
To attend 25 programmes, to raise 23 flags
and listen to 25 speeches by the chaplain,
although some of them were necessarily
-very brief, required a great amount of
time, so that speed was an important
point. The schoolhouses were crowded
wlth enthusiastic gatherings of the na
tives, Including teachers, pupils, parents
and friends and many Americans Inter
ested In seeing "Old Glory" Tise and fall
for the first time on the Philippine breezes
over American public schools.
Form of Ceremonies.
"The form of the ceremonies was much
the same for all of the schools, and was
made to fit In nicely with the programmes
in the English language which were in
progress. Many of the schools delayed the
programme until the arrival of the donat
ing party, so that the raising opened the
exercises. The most Interesting fact was
that universally the natives, mestizos and
Spaniards present Joined enthusiastically
in all of the ceremonies and seemed as
pleased and rejoiced to see this emblem
of American protection raised on high as
did the Americans themselves.
"Upon arrival at a school Colonel French
would make ready a, flag for hoisting, as
sisted by the Superintendent, while Chap
lain Fitzgerald would step to the front,
explain In Spanish the nature of the cere
mony and read abstracts from the ad
dress sent from La Fayette Post, closing
with reading the donating act in English,
handing the small flag intended for the
school to the principal, whereupon a. na
tive or Spanish teacher would read the
same in Spanish, and at the words, Se
sube la bandera,' that is, 'Raise the flag,'
Colonel French would himself send the
banner aloft and make it fast. In many
schools as the flag arose the children, as
they rose to salute, would break forth in
wst excellent singing In English of 'Star
bpuigled Banner,' or moTe often 'An"
lea. Such scenes were t ouchlng. the sing
ing was superb because It was Philippine,
and the pathos heightened by the native
accent, such as 'My country, 'tiss ob dee.
It was soul-stirring. The veil seemed
lifted for us to listen aow; the corridors
of time to the gradual cha'ige of this ex
pression dropping from native lips Into
the fully rounded out, 'My country, 'tis
of thee,' with a pure American accent
And Just so could" we see the Filipino
emerging In tr the full-rounded, true
hearted, soul-devoted American citizen,
with the true accent and spirit.
Recitations in English.
""Many English recitations were well ren
dered at these "Washington's birthday ex
ercises, besides the excellent singing of
American patriotic songs. One interesting
little piece called 'Truthful Washington'
was spoken by little Tagal boys in the
various schools as follows:
I am a Filipino boy.
And not supposed to know
About the great George "Washington.
And why folks loved him so.
But I hae heard It said of him.
That from his early jouth.
When accused of haughty deeds,
He always spoke the truth.
And I believe that truthful boys,
Will truthful men become.
And be bcloicd by eery one. aiwH
Like the great Washington." tae
"This poem was written by Mr. Jesse
George, at present at work in this depart
ment, so Manila offers it to the people at
home as a Philippine tribute.
Appreciation of the Gift.
"The people here appreciate a gift very
much indeed; they possess a proper spirit
of gratitude and welcome the flags very
much. But In the brief time allotted, theyv
could not In a foreign lancuatre under.
stand and feel as we do who the donors
were, nor how they represent the Grand
Army of 'CI, nor what they did for the
best Government on earth. This Is some
thing they will know better; the news of
it is on the way to Manila In the form of
histories of the United States In the Span
ish language. They will speedily under
etand, assisted to every possible extent by
this department, w hlch desires that thanks
be most fully returned from the teachers,
fccholars and people of Manila to the hon
ored La Fayette Post for their generous
and patriotic donation of the Stars and
Respectfully submitted,
"Superintendent Public Instruction."

WASHINGTON. May C-In reply to an
Inquiry from Chairman Loud, of the
H.use postofflce committee, the Second

him a letter relative to a fraud alleged
to have been piactSced in connection with
the -Reighmg of the malls In ISfrL and to
the general subject of the poseibllH of
sueu attempted irauds becoming effective.
The compensation received by railroad
companies for carrjlng the malls Is deter
mined bj the character of the service per

acng. dailj weight of mall carried.
Special reference la made to Mr. Freech
tig. who la 1SSS claimed to have knowledge
of frauds in connection wit mall-weighing
He was requested to furnish Infor
mation that would enable the department
to locate the route and parties Involved.
The information ckeired was not then dis

ber 2, 1SS9. Frcechtig transmitted an af
hdaIt and letter the onlj specific alle
gations that could be used. The stalc
mert was that ho participated in an at

vi. me mans over a Colorado
route. The 250 pounds of mail, if sent as
ciaimeo. -wueu reduced to a daily average,
says the letter, could have no effect on
