Trouble In Morons Province li not Serious
Chaffee nd Wright Report.
Washington, March 11. Desiring to
ascertain tho fact" as to conditions in
tho province of Morong, l.iuon, Secre
tary Root recently cabled inquiries to
Commissioner Wright and General
Chaffee, which have brought tho fol
"With reference to your telegram of
tho lith inst., the facta from Morong
are: About n week ago the prvsidehte
of Calntn was kidnapped. The per
trators of this net was a new organiza
tion gathered in Morong provineonbout
00 strong. They wort) vigorously
searched for and driven to hiding and
will probably bo captured in a day or
two. They havo inflicted no material
damage. No special significance need
or should attach to this event.
"There is no foundation for the state
ment of insurrection in Morong or that
tho inhabitants are fleeing. Small
fragments of ladroue bands, dispersed
ami driven out of tho mountains of 1 ji
guna by Bell's operations, and from
Cavite through recent operations of the
constabulary, in tho mountains there,
having about 15 guns, gathered in tho
mountains of Morong imd probably
aided by a lew outlaws of that section,
raided tho village, kidnaping tho pros
idente. A small detachment of con
stabulary under n nativo sergeant at
tacked them but made no impression,
being short of ammunition. Assistant
Chief Atkins was on the ground in a
few hours witli an adequato force of
constabulary, and, assisted in every
way by the nativo governor of tho prov
ince and tho inhabitants, gave pursuit.
They havo already killed two, injured
ono, captured six and are running the
band down. The presidente has been
released without harm. So far from
there being hostility on the part of the
mass of people to Americin authority,
they give us full information of what is
passing and aid us as much a possible.
These ladrones do not interfere with
the whites and confine their operations
to levying tribute upon and occasion
ally Kidnaping natives in remote local
ities. There is nothing now in this, as
it was in existence under tho Spanish
government, less so now than then.
They are being rapidly broken up and
exterminated by tho constabulary.
There is no political significance in
their operations. WltUitil.
