I am also Informed that the rigorous
Immigration regulations in force here
are enforced In Manila and have cau
ed some unofficial Inquiry to be put
on foot by foreign governments. The
customs tariff enforced In the Philip
pines also ha been a source of consid
erable discussion In diplomatic circles.
Under the administration of Spain,
Chinese were made welcome to the
Philippines, though they were compel!
ed to pay a tax, not because they were
Chinamen, but In, order to raise reve
nue for Spain. This tax was applied
to all resident of the Islands. It has
been hoped that in view of the prox
lmlty of the Philippines to Asia and
the president's favor of the open door
in China. Mr. McKlnley would put
aside his high tariff Ideas and further
the open door for the Philippines.
There Is every reason to believe that
the president and his advisors have
given very careful attention to the
matter of immigration and customs In
the Philippines, but no radical action

NEW YORK. Sept 25.-A special to
the Herald from Washington say
The 16 centimetre" Krupp gun destroyed
in the insurgent trenches at Olangapo,
In Sublg bay. is one of the gun sent
to the place by the Spanish before the
battle of Manila bay.
A hort time before the beginning of
the war Spain began the fortification
oi suwg bay with the intention of
making It a military and naval strong
hold. Admiral Dewey, Indeed, thought
he might find the Spanish fleet there
Instead of at Manila and as a matter
of fact, the Spanish admiral had gone
to Subig bay on April 27, but finding
that the mounting of the gun in the
shore batteries had been delayed, he
returned to Manila.
The Insurgents took possession of the
Spanish posts In the bay In July of
ast year, bring assisted by the Ra
leigh and the Concord, which were sent
In by Admiral Dewey to prevent In
terference by the German cruiser Irene,
whose captain had prevented Agulnal-
do's forces from taking Isla Granda,
at the entrance to the bay.
The 15-centime re Krupp gun corres

SuMg hay Is the most Important paint
in the Island of Luxon In the neighbor
hood of Manila. It is a short distance
north of Manila bay and Its advan

being superior to Cavite, In Manila
bay, the harbor belrg safer and eas

will be held permanently by the navy,
so as to afford a base of operations
against the Insurgents In that neighborhood.
The character of the country back

with the ships from the land side.
