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.

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.
