Carter Seys Attacks on Americans
Must Be Avenged Promptly.
Washington, Sept. 3. In his annual
report Brigadier General. William H.
Carter, commanding the department of
the Vieiyaa in the Philippines, strong
ly urges the encouragement of athletic
sports among tho soldiers to supply the
present lack of means of recieation,
and carefully regnlated and abundant
employment as the most wholesome
antidote for the effects cf Philippine
time of peace. He holds
that tho number of troops in the is
lands and the distibution should be
definitely determined. He sayB no in
sutrcction or invasion (can succeed if
deprived of the control of Manila and
the principal seaport cities, and their
occupation is a military necessity.
Temporary construction and make
shifts of every kind only Berve, he
says, to dovelop and confirm in the
minds of Filipinos the idea that Amer
icans do not intend to hold the islands
peimanently, so the matter is properly
one for the Btudy of the general staff.
A considerable portion of the rep rt
deals with the operation of ladrones in
this department during the .past year
and General Carter says:
"I am of the opinion that it is of no
benefit to the good people'of these is
lands and will delay their ultimate
Americanization it the evil element is
allowed to thieaten, harass and openly
attack American soldiers without im
mediate action by the commanding offi
cer neareBt to tne place wuare tho
offense is committed."
The reason of this complaint !b a
general oidor which leaves the civil
authorities to deal with euch offonses.
