New York, April 18. A special to the
Tribune from Washington says: Ainocg
the serious problems confronting Gen
eral Otis at Manila. none has caueed
greater anxiety than the alarming effects
produced upon the American soldiers,
particularly the enlisted men, by a
eeductive beverage which they procured
in native shops and which produced
euch physical and mental demoraliza
tion as to give rise to a suspicion that
the army of occupation was being system
atically drugged or poisoned to render
-it helpless to resist an insurgent attack.
The native drink was generally known
as vino. It was exceedingly palatable
and inexpensive, but a sipgle drink of it
unfitted a soldier for active duty for the
eucceeding 24 hours, while frequent
portions sent the soldiers to the hospital
for a long period of illness.
When the source of the trouble was
discovered. General Otis was disposed to
prohibit the traffic in vino altogether,
and to that end referred the matter to
General Hughes, provost marshal-gen
eial of the city, with a request for sug
gestions looking to a practical course of
action. General Hughes investigated
the trouble, and his recommendations
have been followed.
As long as Manila was crowded with
troops the vino industry, unrestricted,
was exceedingly lucrative, but now that
most of the Americans are in the field,
practically all the shoos where it has
been sold are closed.

Dr. Redwell relates an interesting ac
count of what he considers a remarkable
cure of . acute stomach trouble and
chronic dyspepsia by the use of the new
discovery, Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets.
He says: "The patient 'was a man
who baa suffered' to my knowledge, for
years with dyspepsia, Everything ' he
ate seemed to sour and create gases in
the stomach ; he had pains like rheuma
tism in the back, shoulder blades and
limbs, fullness and distress after eating.
poor appetite and loss of flesh ; the heart
became affected, caueing palpitation and
sleeplessness at night.
"I gave him powerful nerve tonics
and blood remedies, but to no purpose.
As an experiment I finally bought a
fifty cent package of Stuart's. Dyspepsia
Tablets at a drug store and gave them to
him. Almost immediately relief was
given and after he had used four boxes
he was to all appearance, fully cured-
There was no more' acidity or sour
watery risings, no bloating after meale,
the appetite was vigorous and he has
gained between 10 and 12 pounds in
weight of solid, healthy flesh.
Although Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
are advertised and sold in drug stores,
yet I coneider them a most valuable ad
dition to any physician's line of rem
edies, as they are perfectly harmless
and can be given to children or invalids
or in any condition of the stomach with
perfect safety, being harmless, and con
taining nothing but fruit and vegetable.

Manila, April 18. A number of prom
inent and wealthy Filipinos are organ

abont if possible an understanding be
tween the rebels and the Americans.

ask the United States Philippine com
mission to make a statement as to what
terms would be offered the rebels if the
latter will surrender..
Another" branch of the committee will
approach Aguinaldo with terms-and en
deavor to persuade him to accept them.
It is considered doubtful, however, if
any members of the committee will dare
to personally confer with the rebel leader
i he committee includes several persons
recently condemned to death by Aguin
aldofor petitioning him to cease. fighting.
Major-General Otis has appointed a
board, headed by Colonel Crowder, to
deal with war claims. Many such claims
have been filed, aggregating millions of
dollars, purely as a result of the Ilo Ilo
tire. General Otis, who has hitherto
handled these claims, is unable ti devote
any of bis time to them now.
General Lawton has ordered Colonel
Wholley, of the Washington regiment,
who ia a lieutenant in the regular army,

view that if the Americans send to Aguin

of the present troubles is probable. ' In

with the insurgents.
