Effect of the Emigration of Chinese
on the Future of the Celes
"WASHINGTON, Nor. 10. Major-Gen-eral
Arthur MacArthur, commanding the
army In the Philippines and Military Gov
ernor of the islands since May 5, 1900, has
submitted, his report tin the War Depart
ment. A considerable portion of the re
port relates to events which took place
previous to the date when he assumed
command, and he published soma of the
correspondence and proclamations of tho
Filipinos obtained before that time.
Ho refers to the ohange in Agulnoldo's
plans in abandoning his army 'organiza
tion and starting a guerrilla warfare. The
conditions of the country have afforded
advantages for such a policy, he says, as
tfttey have enabled the Insurgents to ap
pear and disappear at their -convenience.
At one time they are soldiers and imme
diately after are within the lines in the
attitude of peaceable natives. A widely
scattered formation of Filipinos' quickly
followed, the guerrilla, warfare, which led
to a corresponding dissemination of
American troops, there being 537 stations
in the archipelago November 1, 1900, and
433 stations September 1, 1900. This re
fl lted in a large number of minor affairs,
many of wtolch did not assume the dignity
of a regular combat, though the casual
ties between the dates stated were 268
Americans killed, 750 wounded and 55 cap
tured, the Filipino losses during the same
time being 2227 killed, 664 wounded and 2S64
General MJacArtmrr says the extensive
distribution of troops has strained the
soldiers of the Army to the full limit or
endurance He savstbe apparent desul
iMry wekrob- 4naSaed more of disci
pline and as much of valor as was re
quired during the period of regular oper
ations against concentrated field forces of
insurgents. General MacArthur speaks In
the highest terms of the service rendered
by the troops amid all labors and hard
ships. "The FiHpinos," says General MacAr
thur, "are not a war-like or ferocious peo
ple. If left to themselves, a large number
of them would gladly accept American su
premacy, which they are gradually com
ing to understand mains individual liber
ty and absolute security in their lives an
property. They have been maddened,
however, the past five years by rhetorical
sophtetry and stimulants applied to na
tional pride, until power of discriminating
in matters of public concern or private
interest his been almost entirely sus
pended. As a substitute for all consider
ations, the people seean to be actuated by
the idea that In aH doubtful matters of
politics or war men are never nearer right
than when going -with their own kith and
Kin, regaroJees or correctness." This con
dition, he says, has raised difficulties and
obstructions to pacification.
"Why Rebellion In Kept Up.
The effort to institute municipal govern
ment under American auspices carried
the Idea of exclusive fidelity to the
United States, but this met with diffi
culties where Filipinos were placed en
tirety In control, and secret municipal
governments were organized In various
towns under Insurgent ausplces,to pro
ceed simultaneously with the American
governmeat. and often through the same
personnel Presidents and town officials
acted In behalf of Americans and secret
ly la behalf of the insurgents, and, para
doxical as It may seem, with considerable
apparent solicitude for the Interests of
Wherever there Is a group of Insurgent
forces, contiguous towns contribute to
their support and render great assistance
In secreting the soldiers and helping them
to eseape. The report says the success of
the guerrilla system depends upon com
plete unity of action among; the native
population. That thero is such unity is
frankly acknowledged, but how it Is
brought about. General MacArthur says
he is unable, to ascertain. Intimidation
accounts for the condition to some ex
tent, hut fear would not be successful as
the only motive. He adds:
Tt is more probable that the adhesive
principle comes from ethnological homo
geneity, which Induces men to respond
for a time to the appeals of consanguine
ous leadership, even when such action Is
opposed to their own Interest and convic
tions of -expediency."
He says that this statement applies to
the entire archipelago, excepting the por
tion of Mindanao occupied by Moros and
the Jolo group. The Moros seem entirely
satisfied with present conditions.
General MacArthur quotes captured
correspondence to -show the efforts of the
insurgent leaders to Intimidate and con
trol the people. He declares that the
guerrilla bands could not exist, except
for the support they received from the
towns. He says that the education of the
FiHpinos will tend to secure their submis
sion, hut Indicates that this will take a
great deal of time and patience and an
In closing Ms report. General MacAr
thur, after speaking of the establishment
of a republican form of government in
the islands, says: ""
"In the light of existing conditions, It
Is dUneult to realize that there Is any
possibility f such a future for the isl
ands, especially so as at present and for
many years to come the necessity of a
large American military and naval force
is too apparent to admit of discussion.
On the other band, however, there are
many encouraging conditions to sustain
suoh a conviction. For example. In the
Philippines there Is no dynasty to de
stray; no organized system of feudal laws
to eradicate: no principles inconsistent
with republicanism which had solidly in
sinuated themselves into the National
life io displace. On the contrary, nature.
whwh Is exuberant, balmy and generous,
has nourished into existence several mill
Sons of sensitive and credulous people,
without allegiance to any existing institu-
tiona, bat animated by certain Inchoate
Ideas and aspirations, which, by some
unfortunate perversion of thought, they
conceive to be threatened by America.
These people, fortunately, are Intelligent,
generous -and flexible, and probably will
yield quickly and with absolute confi
dence to tuition and advice when thor
oughly Informed of American institutions
"As a future thought in the same dlrec
tlon, it may be suggested that the Aryan
races are making their way back into the
old continent, which, as a consequence.
Is likely within a generation or more, to
become the theater of gigantic political
activities. "Dp to this time the practical
effect of republican institutions has not
been considered in this connection, but
the rapid extension of Klvllizatlon in
these Islands, which Is not only possible,
but probable, of necessity must exert an,
active and potential influence upon the
affairs of Asia, which, under the inspira
tion of American ideas, transmitted
through Filipinos, may exhibit the great
est of political wonders,, a rather broad
conception, perhaps but one well calcu
lated to fix the attention of the most

Reports of Subordinates.
Accompanying General' MacArthufs re
port are the reports of the various- staff
officers under his command. J, Miller,
Quartermaster, speaks of the difficulties
of transportation, and says the native
ponies have proved the most successful.
Major Dravo, Commissary, reports on the
supplies of the Army, and says that the
problem of supplying fresh meat Is most
difficult This is secured mostly from the
naval refrigerating ships. He says the
losses of stores have been abnormally
large, the total loss aggregating 116.7S1
pounds, of which 113,668 were condemna
tions of goods reported and the balance
stolen in transit from Manila to outlying
Colonel Greenleaf makes a report upon
the health conditions, showing that In
June, 1900. out of a total of 63,284, there
were 5563 sick or 8.79 per cent Regaraing
the 'mortality of the Army, he says:
"The number of deaths In the Army
has steadily Increased, and a diminution
of the rate can scarcely be expected. The
number of men shot from ambush by
small guerrilla bands now exceeds those
killed at any previous time, and as time
progresses and the men become more and
more debilitated by the tropical service,
the more marked will become the ratio
of deaths. For the six months, from
January 1 to July 31, 1JKK), there died 21
officers and 971 enlisted men, of whom
four officers and 204 enlisted men wer
killed In action and three officers and 43
enlisted men, died, of wounds, the other
deaths occurring from various diseases.
This is an average of 4.7 dally."
Colonel Greenleaf says that tho war
has Impoverished the native population,
and the native army has drawn all avail
able medical supplies and native physi
cians, and there has been great suffering
among the outlying residents. He says
there Is a scarcity of medical officers In

streets In company with his eon-In-law,
J. Frank "Watson, seemingly In the best
of health, and they were planning a trip
to "Walla "Walla. They had walked one

Sketch, of His Life.
The following sketch is taken from
the history of Portland:
John William Whalley was born at An
napolis, Nova Scotia, April 28, 1S33. His
father, Rev. Francis Whalley, was sta
tioned at Annapolis under an appoint
ment of the Society for the Propagation of
the Gospel, of England, in foreign parts.
In 1S3S the family returned to England,
the father becoming rector of Rtvlngton
Parish, Cheshire,, and subsequently chap
lain of Lancaster Castle. At tho age of
13 years, young Whalley took service as
an apprentice on board the merchantman
Speed. He left the vessel at New York
and remained with friends in New Jersey
until 1S48, acquiring the rudiments of a
fair mercantile education. He shortly
after sailed for England, but again
shipped as an apprentice, this time on
board the Antelope, bound for San Fran
cisco, where he arrived July 17, 1849, In
the very height of the gold excitement.
During the Winter of 1S49 he worked In
tho mines on the American River, and
he followed mining until 1S58, when he
began to study for admission to tne bar
at Yreka, Cal. He became a successful
teacher and served as County School
Superintendent atTxeka, during the years
1861-2, and became a frequent contributor
to the local press and to the Hesperion,
a magazine published in San Francisco.
On July 2L 1661, Mr. Whalley was mar
ried to Miss Lavlna T. Kinsey, who bad
been ono of his pupils. Seven children
were born to them, six daughters and one
eon. One' of his daughters Is Mrs. J.
'Frank Watson, of Portland, and another
became the wife of Lieutenant (now
Colonel) Allison, of the Second United
Mr. Whalley first began the actual prac
tice of law in Grant County, this state,
In 1S64, where he opened an office. Mr.
M. W. Fechhelmer, of Portland, who had
studied law with Mr. Whalley, Induced
him to come to Portland In 1S68C and
the two became partners. The firm of
Whalley & Fechhelmer prospered In this
city, and the surplus earnings were in
vested In business property. In this way
both members of the firm realized a hand-,
In 1S70 Mr. Whalley was elected a mem
ber of the Legislature from Multnomah
County, and after serving one term, re
tired altogether from political life. He
was a prominent Odd Fellow for many
years, and In 1870 represented the grand
lodge of Oregon In the grand lodge of the
United States. In Baltimore.
1 Desiring to visit Europe in 1SS3, Mr.
Whalley dissolved his legal copartnership
, and, with his daughter, Mrs. Allison,
made an extended tour of the Old World.
returning to this city in 1SS4. when he
resumed practice In connection wlth'H.
H. Northup and Paul R. Deady. This
firm afterward "became especially proml
I nent in railway litigation. Judge E. C
Bronaugh was admitted to the firm In
! 1SS5, and Mr. Deady subsequently re
1 tired. Mr. Whalley himself retired from
this firm In 1SS9.
Mr. Whalley long held the front rank
in his profession. He had a well-ordered
mind, and In his forensic encounters his
legal force was always under perfect
control. His love of "fine point" became
a subject of trite remark among his legal
"brethren throughout the state. He availed
1 himself of every opportunity for legal
surprises, and overlooked no means of
legal defense. The care bestowed upon
the "critical niceties" of the law was
due to his marked activity and to the
habit of thoroughness In what he under
took, and not to any neglect of any of
the broad principles which make tho
study and practice of law one of the
most elevating and useful pursuits of
He was an indefatigable sportsman and
master of the science of casting a fly, or,
for that matter, of making one. Every
foot of the sportsman's paradise, from
"Mock's Bottom" to 'Charley Saline's,"
was to him familiar ground. In illustra
tion of the difficulty that men bent on
pleasure sometimes have in leaving the
cares of business behind tnem. It is re
lated of him that he once mftde the trip
of several miles to his favorite hunting
preserve, absorbed by th'e question
whether demurrer would He to a particu
lar complaint, only to find, when his des
tination was reached, that he bad left
his gun at home.
For the past several years his fondness
of shooting aquatic fowl led to the par
tial abandonment of1 the pursuit of other
game birds. With a few chosen friends
he controlled the shooting privileges of
over 1200 acres- of lake and marsh land
on Sauvle's Island, which in season he
visited once a week. He took a great in
terest in the protection and preservation
of game of the state, and urged with vig
orous zeal the enactment by the Legisla
ture of beneficial game laws. For a long
tlmo her was president of the Multnomah
Bod & Gun Club, of Portland, an organi
zation which, under his personal in
fluence and endeavor, accomplished much
good in the line Indicated, and ho was
especially vigilant In the detection of vio
lations of the game laws .and active in
the prosecution of wrongdoers. He was
also chosen first president of the Sports
men's Association of the Northwest, and
at the expiration of his term was re
elected. Mr. "Whalley was a man of alert mind,
of great legal and literary erudition, and
ready command of language, and spoke
and wrote with admirable force. He waa

AHARCHIST PLAY SUPPRESSID
Ifew Toxic Police Preventeditiie Per
formance. NEW TORK, Nov. 10. The police to
night refused to allow the Italian anarch
ists of this city to give & play entitled,
"A, Man "Without a Country," in the Ger
manla Assembly Rooms on the Bowery,
because the Italians had neglected to get
a theatrical license. A. number of po
licemen and detectives stood at the door of
the assembly rooms and turned away all
comers. The play was to be in com
memoration of the 12th anniversary of the
"Chicago martyrs," who were hanged for
their connection with the Haymarket
riot, and the price of 25 cents admission,
which was to have been charged, was to
be given to Mrs. Bressl, of Paterson, N. J.,
wife of Gatano Bresci, the assassin of
King Humbert of Italy. Mrs. Bressl and
her twd children were among those turned
away from the hall.
Tho anarchists said tonight that the
police had been!nterested in. the preven
tion of the play by Italian Consul Bran
chl. At any rate, Inspector Cross sum
moned some of the anarchist leaders to
his office this afternoon and told them
that they could not give their play and
that if they tried to do so 100 policemen
would be on hand to put a stop to it.
The anarchists could but acquiesce and
soon after they placedon the doorway of
the hall a notice in Italian which read:
"At the last moment we have been pre
vented by the police from giving the play
'A Man Without a Country. " As fast
as the ticket-holders came they were told
that there was to be no play.

Mr. Payne said, after leaving the "White

the Republicans of his committee for No

for legislative work in the House at the
One of the matters to come before this
meeting will be the proposed reduotlon of
war revenue taxes. He did not think,
however, that the reduction would exceed
$15,000,000, or less than one-fifth of the
present revenues from that source.
Much, he thought, would depend on the
state of affairs In the Philippines when
the bill comes up for consideration. If a
considerable army has to bo maintained
there for any length of time, it might
be thought wise not to cut down the rev
enues too much. There are, however,
a number of items in tho present law
that might be wisely eliminated, and
these will receive attention. Mr. Payns
said he thought the ship subsidy bill
would be taken up and an effort mads
