AMERICAN FORCES CLOSING
ON AGUINALDO'S ARMY
Thirty Thousand of Otis' Troops Have Com
menced a Campaign "AH Alongthe Line."
IA1PORTANT RESULTS TO TRANSPIRE

NEW YOBK. Nov. t A special to the

0:1c et November 5 and C as the dates
fur commencing the campaign "all
along the line" and the war depart
ment has information today that the
program Is being carried out.
General Otis' dispatches are optimis
tic In the. highest degree and the offi
cials are predicting that the rebellion
will be crushed before the end of the
prsent month and that Important vic
tories will be announced within a few
The military situation was thus ana
lysed today by an official familiar with
General Otis' planes Of operation, as
reported to the war department:
Aguinaldo, with his army greatly
reduced, owing to recent disintegra
tions. Is at Bayambang, twenty miles
north of Tarlac, which was his head
quarters and the objectives of Lawton's
and MacArthur's armies up to a fort
"General MacArthur move north
ward along the railroad to Bayambang,
taking the towns of Tarlae, Panaque,
Moncoda and others as he goes along.
General Law-ton moves northward
from Colantua as his base, and with
columns swerving to the right and left
to sweep the country to the Rio Agno
river, and to head off Aguinaldo's es
cape to the mountains through Rio
Agno valley. At last accounts detach
ments from his command had taken
' Aliaga, west of his base. Talavera being
to the north and Bayambang to the
"General tVheaton moves southward
from Dagupan to Bayambang. His
movements up to this time have b"en
kept from the public, but now that th
campaign is in progress, I am at liber
ty to mer.tion that he headed an ex.-
ditlon sent out on transports for the
Gulf of Lingayen last we-k. The navy's
task was to shell the towns on the
southern part of the gulf, so as to ef
fect the cafe landing of his expedition.
"Unless Agulnal-Jo has escad to the
eastward through the Rio Agnu valley,
he ought to b" caught between Gen
eral Wheaton's fr: -s from the north
and General Mac-Arthur's from th
souih within the next n hour, as Bay
ambang. where he is sjp-'l to be
located, is less thai " mii-.i from Da
gupan and about 4fi miles fr..rn Ang-les.
"Although General Ma' Arthur's T.ai.n
forces were at Angr-I at last avjiitr,
it 1b believed that one of tus columns
has reached and taken Tarlac b-f -r-
this time and that the railroad to h:.:
point is now in control of the Arrerlcan
tones and that it is only a qti. ti"n
of a few days wh-.i his command wiii
reac h Bayambang.
"From the plan of campaign manr--
out Aguinaldo's only p'-f.sble means of
escape would seem to be V the east
ward through the Rio Agno valley into
the mountains, as the forces und-r
Generals Law ton and MacArthur
moving northward are keeping scouts
well out to ihe front so as to prevent
the enemy from escaping southward."
It seems to have been figured out by
the authorities that Aguinaldo -wouldn't
aUcmpt to en's.'' the mountains to tho
northeastward, because when he got
on the other side he would be quite as
hostile to the Tagalos as the American
trot-ps. The north? part of the isl
and of Luzon is cut off from the central
by high ranges of mountains. The
other Bide is peopled by mixed races.
It Is said they are friendly to the Uni
ted States nnd particularly bitter
against the Tagalos.
The war department has not been ad
vised as to the exact number of troops
now engaged under Generals Lawton,
MacArthur and Wtaeoton, but It Is esti
mated that of the 44.000 which General
Otis reported he had yesterday, at
least M are engaged In the cam-j-algn
north of Manila, According to
recent dispatches "rm General Otis
there has been a gvner&l scattering of
Aguinaldo's forces and one report stat
ed that he did not have more than 3.-
OW men with him at Bayambang.
General Otis expressed the opinion
that the disintegration of Aguinaldo's
men meant that they were getting tired
of the war and predicted the; surren
uer or a targe numoer or nanus in a
Some of the military experts fear
General Otis is over sanguine on this
point and that the disintegration may
mean the beginning of a prolonged

Captured Only After a Stout Defense

MANILA, Nov. 6. 10:50 a. m. Maga
lang, th- town taken yesterday by the
two columns of General MacArthur's
division under Coljnel Smith and Ma
jor O'Brien, is a strong town situated
midway between Angeles and Arayat.
The movement Is a part of a plan for
the Americans to possess all the coun
try to the southeast of Tarlac, as the
t roots c!'se In on the capital, cutting
the line of the enemy's retreat In that
direction. The insurgent force Is esti
mated at 1,M.
Colom-l Smith first encountered a
small force entrenched a quarter of a
mile beyond Angeles, which soon re
treated, leaving two of their number

was that the bent form of republican
gowrnment know n In the world, which
would be th bowt fonn t bo found
among the- Ideal, and that every step
toward establishing a government In
the 1'hlllpplnes should be an approach
to this high Ideal.
No attempt should be made, he Mild,
to frame a detailed government for the
islmd us a whole or for any .f the
various people who Inhabited them
without a thorough understanding of
all the conditions and needs of the In
habitants. Asked whether he- favored a congres
sional commlMion to visit the Philip
pines and study the conditions there be
fore attempting to frame a system of
government, he replied:
"I think It would be wise to have
such a commission visit the Islands. If
we had undertaken to frame a govern
rtieni for Hawaii without the study of
local conditions which our commission
made, I think It Is probable that we
would have made some egregious blun
ders. This study of conditions and of,
the peculiar characteristics and needs
3f the people Is even more neeesary In
the case of the Philippines than In- Ha
waii, because we know b-ss of the Phil
ippines." In Senator Morgan's opinion the gov
ednment of the I'nlted States should
have charge of the- external relations of
all r.iatters relating to the islands as a
group, while the local affairs should
be conlided as far as possible to tin'
people of the different localities. In
