THE FILIPINO AS A FIGHTER.
The Filipinos have some fighting
qualities, but as warriors they are
not comparable with the North
American Indian. There would be
a different story to record if Otis
were facing 30,000 hostile Nez Perces
or Modocs, fighting them in their
own country, and conducting the
oannpaign over a network of water
ways, and a vast tangle of jungles.
It required a regiment of regulars,
the services of a company of Indian
allies, the expenditure of several
million dollars, and a protracted and
bloody campaign to capture Captain
Jack's little band of miserable Mo
docs in Southern Oregon and North
ern California in the early '70s. - At
the beginning of hostilities Jack had
only sixty Modoc and twenty Hot
Creek warriors. When he eurren
3ered there weie only fifty fighting
men and boys, about fifty women,
and sixty children. But in tie
course of the war our regulars lost
100 in killed and wounded, of which
forty-one were killed, of whom seven
were cc mmlsioi ed officers. Include
lag citizens, a total of sixty-three
were killed, beside two Indian allies
in all sixty five killed and sixty-
three wounded, of vrhom some died,
The little band of fighting Modocs
. surrendered to a force of 985 regu
lars and 71 Indian allies. Bancroft
gives a graphic statement of the
arrival of the captives in camp:
'About sunset on the- 22nd the
cry was heard in camp, 'Here they
come. Here they are. Every man
started to his feet and every camp
souDd was iiushed. In front of the
procession rode Blair, the superin
tendent of Fairchild's farm, who
sharply eyed the strolling soldiers
Fifty yards behind him rode Fair-
child; behind him the Modoc war
riors, followed by the women and
children, all mounted, or rather
piled, upon a few gaunt ponies, who
fairly staggered under them. All
the men wore portions of the United
States uniform, and all the women
a motley assortment of garments
gathered up about the settlements,
or plundered from the houses' pillaged
in the beginning of the war. Both
men and women had their faces
daubed with pitch, in sign of mourn
,n giving them a hideous appear
ance. Among them were lame, halt
and blind, the scum of the tribe.
Slowly and silently they filed into
camp, not a word being uttered by
any one. Davis went forwaid a
little way to meet them, when twelve
warriors laid down their Springfield
rifles at his feet, these being about
a third of the fighting force of this
"Now that Captain Jack was no
more to be feared, a feeling of pro
fessional pride caused the army to
make much of the man who, with
one small company, armed with
rifles, had baffled and defeated a
whole regiment of trained soldiers
with all l ha ' appliance - of ' modern
warfare. But there was nothing in
the apper.nnce of Jick to indicate
the military genius that was there
He was rather small, weighing 145
pounds, with small hands and feet
and thin arms. His face was round,
and . his forehead low and square.
His expression was serious, almost
morose: his eves black, sharp and
watchful, indicating cunning, caution
and a determined will. His age was
36, and he looked even yoong'er.

dark calico shirt, his bushy, unkepl
hair cut short across bis- forehead,

If Aguinaldo had 5000 soldiers of
the fighting quality of the Modoc's,
he could prolong the war indefinitely
