the- ronyrxo oitBoo-siA, Monday, mat 7, 1900: A MANILA FLAG-RAISING "WASIIIXGTOX'S BIRTHDAY FITLY CELEBRATED. WAS 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 Instruction. 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 Stripes. Respectfully submitted, "GEORGE P. ANDERSON "Superintendent Public Instruction." CHARGE WAS GROUNDLESS. Was No EuVctUc rrnntl in Mnll AVeis;hIn?r for Contracts. WASHINGTON.

People and freight are accumulating here and In Bennett and at points along the lakes in preparation .for taking scows on steamers to lower 'river points. Some of them intend to gef through to Nome. It appears that the Yukon River will be open to navigation May 15, and the lakes will open two or three weeks later, The ice on Lake Bennett Is becoming very dangerous to travel .over.

Last year they secured assistance from the East, and kept a double shift at work all the time, and have developed the pros pect until it Is now a mine.

GRASSES ON DISPLAY. Colonel Jadson Sends Fine Sped- mens to Permanent Exhibit. The permanent exhibit of the Bureau of Information has received from Colonel Judson, the O. R. & N.

United States agrostologlst, has kindly volunteered to label them, and when this Is done they will form on inter esting and valuable exhibit. A large lot of mineral specimens from, late discover ies and new mining districts has been received for the exhibit, which will be labeled so as to show from whence the came. This will add greatly to the value and Interest of the collection, as the old samples were not thus labeled. Many more persons visit the exhibit since it was moved to Its new quarters, and a great many people from the East drop in and ask Innumerable questions about the ex hibits. Although the choicest of the fruit exhibits have been sent to the Paris exposition, there is still fruit there which Eastern people can hardly be made to realize is natural, and some Insist on Jars being opened that thoy may be able to touch the contents.
