PHILIPPINE COMMISSION'S REPORT
Last Remnant of the Insurrection
Will Disappear If the Present
Policy Is Maintained.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 19. August 17.
Secretary Root cabled, the Philippine
Commission for a report of its- operations
to date. Following is the dispatch and
the reply of the commission, cabled Au
War Department. Telegram, August 17,
1900.1-To Philippine Commission, Manila:
The President wishes you to report by
cable the views of the commission on the
gen.eral condition of the islands as to
peace and Industry; business and revenue
conditions prevailing; progress of oppor
tunity for education; disposition of the
people toward the United States; what
improvement in this particular; the pres
ent extent of the Insurrection; how much
of the Archipelago is tranquil; how much
is still in a disturbed state; the .probable
continuance of guerrilla warfare, an.d the
influences operating to prolong it; how it
can best be brought to a close; conditions
and requirements of civil government.
ROOT, Secretary of War.
Manila, August 21, 1900. Secretary of
'War, Washington: Replying to your dis
patch, the commission reports: It has
for two months and a -half made diligent
inquiries into the conditions prevailing.
The massof thepeoplejias aptitude for
education," but is ignorant, superstitious
and credulous in a remarkable degree.
Hostility against Americans was original
ly aroused by absurd falsehoods of un
scrupulous leaders. -The distribution of
troons in 300 nosts has by contact largely
dispelled the hostility and steadily Im
proved the temper of the people. This
Improvement, furthered by the abuses of
the insurgents, afllrms that a large- num

island, kept up and avovred by the
'nsurgrent .proclamation- and orders
to influence the' election, do not show-

of ihe people of the provinces vrserc

bodies in mountain fastnesses, whence
theyissue ior usually narnuess nignt at
tacks, or murderous ambush of small
American squads, or to collect contribu
tions or recruit from the people, terror
ized ,by cutting out tongues, cutting off
limbs, burying alive, murder and plunder.
Difficulty of detection enables insurgents
to maintain surveillance over people even
in some, garrisoned towns. Uncertainty
as to future policy of United States and
defenseless .condition of people without
arms largely prevent -them aiding Amer
icans In suppressing outrages.
.Despite these difficulties, the mainten
ance of the 'status quo makes for more
peaceful" conditions. All Northern Luzon
'except In Nueva Ecija and Bulacan, are
substantially free from Insurgents. The
people are busy .planting, and are asking
for municipal organization. The railway
and telegraph "lines from Manila to Dagu
pan, 122 miles, have not been molested for
five months. In the excepted provinces
and parts of the provinces of Southern
Luzon, insurrecto bands dodge from ond
mountain refuge to another and give oc
casional trouble. Tagals, alone active In
leading the guerrilla warfare, have suc
ceeded in recruiting bands among the
Visayans in Samar, Leye and parts ofj
Panay, which maintain themselves by the
method described. In Negros, Cebu,,Rom
blon, Masbate, Sibuyan. Tablas, Bohol
and other Visayan Isla,nds, little disturb
ance exists, and civil government is
eagerly awaited. Near Cagayan, in Min
danao, the old Tagal penal settlement, 'a
considerable force of ladrdnes makes the
neighboring country dangerous, and dis
turbance exists at. Surigao, but lit the
south' of this large, sparsely settled isl
and, at Zamboanga, Cottabatto and other
points, the country is tranquil.
Four years of war and lawlessness in
.parts of the Islands have created unset
tled conditions., and the unguarded lAmer-
'ican or foreigner traveling ordinary" trails
far from 'garrisons ana attracting cupid
ity, runs the risk of violence, even .in, the
pacified provinces. The native constabu
lary and militia, which should be organ
ized at once, will end this and the ter
rorism to twhlch defenseless people are
subjected. Natives desire to enlist in'
these 'organizations. If judiciously se
lected and officered there will be a suffi
cient force for the maintenance of order
and-It "will permit an early material -reduction

It is conceded by all but men in

lamation, that If the election con
firms the present policy, the remnant
of the insurrection -will disappear
vrlthin sixty days by surrender of

Ladrones, in part a, heritage from Span

Business, Interrupted by the war, is
much improved as peace extends, bqi in
vestment of new capital is retarded by
doubt concerning the policy of the United
States. In Negros, more sugar Is in cul
tivation than ever before. New forestry
regulations give an Impetus to the Umber
trade and reduce the high price of lum3
ber. Cultivation of- rice In some jprov--,
Inces is retarded by loss of draft cattlo
through disease and war. Meat Is now IB
cents a pound. '
Customs collections for the last quarter
were 50 per cent greater than ever In
Spanish history, and August v collections
show further increase. The total revenue,
for the same period was one-third greater
than in any quarter under Spain, though
the cedula tax, the chief source of Span
ish revenue, has been practically abol
ished. Economy and efficiency of mili
tary government have created a surplus
fund of 56,000,000, Mexican, which should
be expended in much needed public works,
notably improvement of Manila harbor,
the conditions of which, with consequent
delay and expense in landing goods, Is a
greater embargo on business than iriany
nearly prohibitory tariff rates Inherited
from Spain and still operative. With a
proper tariff and facilities Manila will be
come the great port of the Orient. Span
ish revenue laws, throwing tho-Jourden Of
taxation on the poor, give the wealthy
comparative immunity. The tariff now
prevents importations from America of
canned goods, machinery and other nec
essaries. The Spanish inland revenue was
chiefly derived from the poll tax, tax
on small business, fishing license and the
like, but no land tax. We are f ormulatintr
laws remedying these evils, and. confident
. that by judicious customs laws, a reason
able ad valorem land tax and a proper
corporation franchise tax, the imposition
of no greater rate than that in the aver
age American state will give less 'annoy
ance, and, with peace, will produce a rev
enue sufficient to pay the expenses 6f an
efficient government, including the mili
tary vand constabulary.
The bad jjonditlon of the currency
hinders business.- Steps should be taken
towards early resumption 'of the gold
standard. We are preparing a strin
gent civil service law giving- equfl
opportunities to Filipinos and Amer
icans, with preference 'for the former,
where qualifications are equal, to
enter at tho lowest rank and by pro-
, motion reach the head of the department.

BISHOP EDWARD G. ANDREWS.
Bishop Andrews, who presides over the Oregon M. E. Conference at Ashland, was born
Attrnst T, ISSS-ln-sjIflW .Hartford5. Qneids, County, 2C T. Ha pursued his acad'smla studies
chiefly In, Cazenovia Seminary,, and, subsequently entered ths -Wealyan -University, where he
graduated Ahfeust 7i 1847. He .became a. communicant In his; 10th year; was licensed to
preach early in 1844, and after his graduation was cmoloyed for 11 months as assistant
preacher on the JMorrtsvllle circuit. In 1848 he Joined the Oneida, conference, and was or
dained.deacon by Bishop Janes; was received into-full connection and ordained elder by Blsh
fop Scott in 1850, at Utlco, Subsequently he was stationed at Stockbrldce. His voice be
coming affected by ministerial services, ho accepted, a- situation as teacher in Cazenovia
Seminary in -1854.- In 1855 ho became president of Mansflold (Ohio) Female College. In 1850
he was elected principal of Cazenovia Seminar'. Eight years later he re-entered tho pas
toral' work ;1 was transferred to New York East Conference, and stationed at Stamford, Sand
street, Brooklyn, St. James and. Seventh aventie. He was a member of the general confer
ence of 1804, and later years.-and in 1872 was elected to the episcopacy. Under the arrange
ment or episcopal residences, he removed to DesMo(nes. la., and has since been constantly
engaged" In his official duties. In 187G he visited Europe and India,-organizing the confer
ences of Sweden, Norway and South India, and visiting .Germany, .Switzerland and Italy.
Slnco then he has been transferred to New York City,
lngs here -this evening, one at Pavilion,
and the other at Lewis' Hall. Both were
largely attended. 'At Pavilion Hall, Gov
ernor Roosevelt said, in part:
"I have been traveling all day along the
eastern border of your great state. I
have been seeing what you have done in
turning the wilderness into fruitful fields.
"Inspeaking toyou this evening, I want
to talk especially' from the standpoint of,
the -wageworkers and on the question of
trusts. Four years ago,-1 am Informed,
that jthe amount of , wages paid the wage
workers here was much lesB than they
are recelvlngnow. r I learn, that you had
some, 600 men -employed four years ago,
whereas you have, 800 employed now. In
the shops here. -With trainmen four years
ago the average wage was $60 a month
whereas they npw.ge,t an average. of $S5
a month. InJlS9G many mechanics had
to be set at a lower grade of Tvork or do
nothing, whereas now men are employed
at the h!ghest,kInd.of work at the wages
I have named. Your engineers four years
ago received anaverage of $S0 a month,
and -now from $160 to $200 a month. Fire
men four years ago did not get but about
$& a month on an average, whereas now
they get from-$90 to "$150 a month. Con
ductors were receiving in 'the neighbor
hood of $90 a months and now they get
about $170 a month. The wages of bag
gagemen - have gone from $40 to $60 a
month, then to $100 a month now. If I
am In- error about the figures you can
look them up easily enough. But, sub
stantially, what I havo told you Is the
- "We have seen In four years what .has
been the Increase In wage-earning here.
;AU I ask. Is that In your effort, to cut
down the trusts you do not also cut
.down .the .wageworker. You .should, not
vote so as to bring ruin upon the wage
worker's wife and children, for when
hard 'times come, when disaster and pan-
ic are abroad inthe land and times are'
hard, it may be hard for the men, but it
'Is harder still for. the women and chil
dren; it isr harder for those dependent
upon him. Do not vote to injure your
selves. In your endeavor to get at -the
' man you would like to - get at, for I
think we can get at them If we go hon
estly, rationally and quietly about It. The
man of the trust will be hurt a good
deal less than you by any great commercial-disaster.
The speculator can do more
to protect himself than you can, though
It may hurt him. He may be badly off,
but he will not be as badly off as the
"We will find out how to get at the
trusts. It Js not easy to point out how
It can be done, but it 13 very easy to
point out some way In which It cannot
be done. .The worst or these ways Is to
go Into hysterics. Nobody ever gained
anything by going into hysterics yet, and
it is bad for the person Indulging In them.
Sometimes; we have legislation that verges
on the hysterical. Just think of tho
amendments to tho anti-trust laws that
have been passed during the past six or
eight years and think how little most
tof them amount to. Comraro the ac
complishments with the promises on tho
'part of the people who promised the
most. Mr. Bryan said . four years ago
again and again that unless you elected
ilm you would have harder experiences.
'I ask you if wool did not sell at about
9 cents five or six years ago and whether
It .(does not sell for about double that
now? You may remember the story of the
farmer who voted for free wool eight
years ago who said he had come within
6 cents of getting it. Compare the prices
you got four years ago with those you
get now; compare the earning of tho
wageworker now with what we got then,
.and see what It Is for your Interest to do
Expansion Is Our Law.
At Rexburg Governor Roosevelt in his
"Imperialism you hear talked of. What
does It mean? It means nothing. .There
is not an Imperialist in the country "that I
have yet met. Expansion? Yes playing
the part of a great nation. Why am I
speaking to you? Because you and your
forefathers expanded Into this country;
because you moved in here In your white
topped wagons and came across the plains
and over the mountains of Utah to be
come miners and ranchmen, and when
you got here you began to irrigate the
soil. And that is one of the problems of
the Nation, and the Nation has got to help
In solving It. Your forefathers came here
to make' the wilderness blossom like the
rose, and as I" came along this morning I
saw the rising sun throw Its light, not
against the sagebrush, but against the
green alfalfa fields that have been Irri
gated, and I saw the houses you have
built here because you have expanded.
"Expansion has been the law "of our
National growth. It Is a great thing to
have matorlal prosperity. It Is a great
thing to be able to establish railroad, fac
tor,' and farm. It is a greater thing to
be able to point to men of the Nation who
did the deeds of the Nation. What is It
we look back to with the greatest pride?
It Is the mighty Seeds done by men of
American name. It Is the fact that the
wilderness here has been conquered by
you men of the West. It Is the way our
people have moved forward and suffered
death, -enduring risks and Hardships be
cause they were the mighty men of the
people who have inherited the earth. To
each generation is allotted its task. No
generation is without its duty to perform,
and if they flinch and turn their backs on
their tasks, what shall we say of them?
Now, Is this giant of the West, those who
have-conquered the frontier, to sit down
idly now with folded hands and say, 'Our
fathers worked, we rest: our fathers
toiled, endured and dared, and we stay at
home-to avoid troubles; our fathers con
quered the West, but we are a feeble folk,
and we cannot hold the Philippines.' Are
we to sit down and do that? Base is tho
counsel and base will be our people If
they, take that counsel. Wo must go on
and play our part among the nations of
-At St. Anthony, the Governor was
.driven to tho Opera-House, where he said
"A'great'nation must do its great work.
When it stops doing its work it is be
cause It has stopped doing things that
mako It a great nation. We have got
to stand In the forefront of the nations
of the earth at all times. You have come
so far across the Continent that you look
towards, the west; that you look towards
Puget Sound and the mouth of the Co
lumbia and where the Golden Gate looks
through, the long, heaving waters across
the greatest of all oceans. There, across
the greater oaean, lies the chance for us
to double, treble and quadruple our
wealth and our power and our National
renown. We have taken Hakali; we have
the Philippines. It Is not now a question
of expanding, b.ut it is a question of
whether we are going to contract."
"What Makes the Country Great.
i At Blackfoot, Governor Roosevelt made
a speech in the Courthouse square. In
which he .said:
"Some 17 or IS years ago I was here. I
lived In parts of the West where It was
middling rough, and where a man would
occasionally escape a licking If he accept
ed a kicking. He could get peace on
those terms, but it was not a permanent
peace; because, when it was discovered
that he took a kicking easily, other peo
ple took a part In the exercise. Now, if
we had let the Southern States go, we
would have had war after war, and we
would have trodden a bloody path in con
sequence. Exactly as the generation of
the past did Its great work well, so we
have got to do our lesser work well.
When the men of our Nation cease to
glvo aid and comfort to our enemies,
peace will qome to the Philippines."
"It Is a great thing that the law of
progress doe3 obtain. For the last 40
years this country has gone steadily for
ward, and through the most of that time

A TERRIBLE TRAGEDY
Fred Kane Shot His Wife and
BURNED CABIN AND GIRL'S REMAINS
As a Final Chapter to Terrible TJeed
He Attempted Suicide Dement
ed Man's Crime.
SUMPTER. Or., Sept. 19. A terrible
tragedy took place near here today, the
particulars of which are blood-curdling-Fred
Kane, who resided with his wife and
stepdaughter, a child about 7 or 8 yeara
of age, about six miles northwest of this
f place, at what Is known as Mcculloch's
Fork, In a fit of temporary Insanity shot
his wife and daughter and burned tho
body of the latter by setting fire to their
cabin homo. He then attempted suicldo
by shooting himself.
Persons passing on the road betweea
this place and Granlto found Kane and
his wife a short distance from their homo
in a dying condition, and brought them,
to Sumpter. Both are thought to be mor
Kane shot himself through one lung,
and his wife was struck by a bullet, the
ball entering the chest just below the
heart. Both are In the hospital at Baker
City. The tragedy took place some time
about 7 o'clock this morning. It is thought
that Kane became of unsound mind, and
his crime was that of a demented man.
