Captain Allen, Chid, AsHs that the Forres at
Ills Command lie Doubled
Washington, Feb. 20. 'Tho war de
partment hns uiiido public it report of
Captain Henry T. Allen, sixth cavalry,
dated Miuilln, December 15, concern
ing tho l'lilUpplnii constabulary, of
which ho is chief. Oiiptnln Allen says
tho constabulary consisted of 2,500
men, and was aide to control, without
tho nld of troops, tho provinces of
Alini, llontoc, Union, 1-epaiito, Han
guet, Nuuvii Vlxcaya, llatnan, l'rliicipo
and Infanta.
Up to tho date of tho report there

forco by desertion a showing attrib
uted to the care in tho selection of the
men. Captain Allen says that experi
ence has shown that tho cost of a single
constable for ono year does not exceed
$250 gold, while the cost of maintain
ing an American soldier ordinarily is
reckoned at about $1,000. Captain Al
len states that in chasing down the rob
ber bands tho constabulary Is unques
tionably more efficient than tho Ameri
can troops, and while one large garri
son in many of the provinces may lie
always necessary, it is his opinion,
after n thorough study of conditions,
that in ono year's timo 15,000 Ameri
can soldiers, with the native contingent
of troops nnd constabulary, will sulllco
to garrison the Philippiuu archipelago.
Captain Allen says that tho general
conditions of the islands as legards pa
cification havo never bcon so favorable
as now, when tho "crumbling from the
top" is duly manifested. In his opin
ion tho campaign in progress in llntan-
gas and Laguna will bo tho coup do
graco of tlio insurrection. Tlio better
class of peoplo, ho says, aro extremely
tired of tho struggle, and ardently de
sire pcaco. Tho recently enacted sdi
tion law, ho says, has had a potent
valuo in bringing ovil doors to n reali
zation of thoir allegiance to law and or
der. In a recapitulation of tho work of
the constabulary for a little over four
months, it is shown that in 15 engago-
monts 20 outlaws havo been killed, 20
wounded and 374 captured.
One Life Lost and Several Persons Injured-
Property Loss $500,000.
Battlo Creek, Mich., Fob. 20. Early

Effect of American Ship Subsidy.
London, Fob. 20. Tho Dully Mail,
in its issuo this morning, discusses tho
effect upon British shipping of tho
American ship subsidy bill. Tho
paper contends that tho bounty suggest
ed by Sonator Fryo will compleioly
counterbalance tho ndvantago now hold
by British shipping, but that tho only
remedy hilthorto proposed that Amor-
lean ships ontorlng British ports should
bo fined to tho oxtont of their subsidy

As tlio naval tug drew nearer to tho
