the towns which tho Americans havo
garrisoned They camp in tho hills and
maintain a constant firo upon tho
American outposts. Whon tho troops
sally against thorn, they scatter, re
turning when the Americans retire.
They shoot burning, arrows, and havo
thus burned a largo part of tho town of
Albay. Indeed, most of tho towns iu
that ptoviuco are practically deserted,
except by tho garrison. Scarcoly any
of tho inhabitants leturu to their
homes. They are camping in tho inter
ior, and it issupiiosod armed insurgents
prevent them going back. It is report
ed that tlioro is much suffering among
them, owing to lack of food. As a re
sult of these conditions, tho hemp busi
ness in that section is seriously hin
dered, and ships going for cargoes are
compelled to take gangs of coolies to
do their loading. Homp held in the
interior is quite inaccessible.

Chicago, ieb. 13. "Tho greatest
question of our time is whether the op
simulation of the commercial force of
China by the world will be a quick or
slow process," declared Benjamin I.
Wheeler, president of the University ol
California, who passed through Chicago
today on his way East. "If the pro
cess be speedy," he continued, "there
is likely to be a disastrous disturbance,
but if it be natural and unforced, a
peaceful adjustment will be insured.
Therefore, the question, not so much oi
the Chinese as of Cnina, is of para
mount importance to Americans.
'Tho pressure of ages has made of the
Chinese, pastmasters in commerce,.
Their lack has been iron, and as tho
commercial development of this coun
try has been characteristically that ol
metals, they have seemingly been dis
tanced. But let them once acouire in-
truction from the Western world in
the metal arts, and they will bo able,
with their geniue, to revolutionizo the
commerce of tho globe."
