Letter From C. B. Perkins.
Calamba, P. I., Sept. 27, HUM.
I spant the Fourth in Manila. I
found it quiet, but very interesting to
observe the many cosily decorations
and the interest taken in our national
holiday by a foreign race.
I regretted very much to leave my
comfortable home at Cavite and the
companionship of my friend, but we
must often do things which we do not
like. At the same time, it was the only
thing to do; advancement and a better
I am well and happy in my new posi
tion and find the duties very easy, hard
ly enough to keep me from growing
The only excitement hre is the
activity of tbe insurgents. During 48
hours ending Sept 6, the 3'Jth infantry
lost 11 men and four horses ; how is that
for tor's ? Yet the American people are
told that the war or insurrection is over.
It seema that our troops are unable to
get at the insurgents as they go in small
bauds and ambush our men as they go
from town to town. Only yesterday
the commanding officer at Loa Dinoa
seut four mounted men here for the mail.
Upon their return they were fired upon
within two miles of this place. One
man was killed, shot through the. head,
another wounded, shot through the leg,
two hor6ei killed aud a third shot
through the neck. A mounted detach
ment of 15 men went out and were gone
11 day, killing three insurgents.
It is dangerous to step out after dark
unless you are well armed and then you
may get it in the back. This regiment,
the ;Wh, has their men stationed at dif
ferent points through the province and
as this is a vary sickly place most of the
comnanies have not enough wen lo
Companies A and 0 are here. Out of
Company A tliete are 11) men available
for duty; out of C there are 24, so you
can see uow they are eituateu. hub is
a volunteer regiment and they expect to
be relieved soon by regulars. Forty
soldiers were sent Irom this hospital
yestei.lay enioule to general hospital
We were all in hopes ttiat when the
civil commission took charge that they
would try and do something to beuefit
the people, lower the unreasonably high
duties, ao it would make living some
where in the bounds of reason. As yet
they have dune nothing and Beemingly
do not intend to. All they have done
they h ive been almost compelled lo do
by the press.
I suppoae ere this reaches you, the
papers at home have brought you notice
of the great number of Americans killed
and captured during the last few dayB
The most serious fight took pluce with
in an hours ride of here and I know the
(nets regarding the buttle, but ere the
news reaches the State it is modified so
that it does not seem had, olio can not
go from town to town anywhere through
the Inlands without a strong escoit and
then many times the natives fire from
some impregnable position in Ilia moun
tains killing several of the escort and
perhaps several horses.
Those few words of Col. Bryan's, "In
dependence for the rillipino people," is
killing more soldiers today than you
would really imagine, for the native are
now taking new courage and many
Dago who laid down his bamboo gun to
accept of the Ameiican government as
a ruler, now has grown patriotic and
joined the insurgent ranks to shoot
down American soldiers. A great iium
her of American soldiers serving here, I
have grown weary of tbe (lack policv
practiced by the authorities and deserted
going over and accepting a commision
in the native army. In a great many
cases they have formed companies and
drilled them until they can make a great
fight. The other dny at the fight near
here our men could hear the American
command on the native side and for a
few moments hesitated to fire thinking
American soldiers were ahead but that
delay caused 2.1 Americana to meet their
death without hardly a moments winn
ing. It is a known fact that these peop'o
cannot bs pacilled by kind treatment,
you must use harsh measures.
, As far as danger there ia danger, all
over this country now, but a inan must
not give people any chance to get you.
We have jutt received I'M more men to
streng' hen this p ist anil now I do not
lear an attack as much as before. I
had an iusureclo captain here ill the
house seyeia! days ago. Kurt. Nitron a
canteen man in this province who was I
captured by the insurgents a few weeks
ago and released, was here the other eve
ning on his way home, and as we ere
walking up the street, e met a bright
well dressed Filipino, who .Naeon ap
proached and shook bands with, aud
then he asked bun up lo uiy house.
Alter be was gone Najli said, "I'll tell
you who that man was. tic is the cap

Washington, Nov. 26, 11)00.
This government baa once more taken
tbe diplomatic lead in Chinese affairs.
Tiring of the seemingly endless dead
lock of the foreign ministers at Pekin,
and believing tbat their perscnal ex
periences bad aroused their prejudices to
such an extent that it would be well nigh
impossible (or them to ajree upon tbe
demands to be made upon the govern
ment of China, tor the punishment of
the inciters of tbe boxer troubles and
the amount of the money indemnity
which should be paid the powers, this
government has boldly taken a staud in
favor of ending tbe deadlock by stopping
the presint negotiations and making a
fresh start by the appointmentof repre
sentatives of each of the powers con
cerned, to an international comuiiisior
or congress, to meet at Tbe Hague, or
tome other place outside of China, and
formulate the demands which the
powers shall make upon China. Tbe
idea baa been endorsed by several of the
powers and it ia expected to get the
ppioval of them all. It seems to offer
a commonsense way out of tbe mix-up
in Pekin, which has steadily been grow
ing worse instead of better.
The reply of ex-Senator Wilson, of the
state of Washington, when asked what
brought him lo the national capital at
this time, may be consideted somewhat
unique, compared with the object of
other gentlemen who are, like Mr. Wil
son, members of the doinlnent parly.
He said: "1 want nothing, and have
come hero to ask for nothing. My wife
and 1 have come East where our daugh
ter is in school. 1 warned to get away
from business and politics for a little
while and plun lo stay away until after
Whatever the beer and tobacco men
can do on the floor of tbu House, where
they threaten to curry the fight, there is
no doubt of their having been complete
ly routed in the first battle on tl.e bill
for tbe reduction of Ilia war taxes, made
before the sub-committee composed of
Representatives Payne, of New York;
Daliell, of Pennsylvania, and llopkin
of Illinois which has prepared a bill,
estimated to cut the annual revenue be
tween twenty and thirty million dollars,
without reducing the tax on beer or on
any clans of tabacco. The bill may, of
couise, be changed before being reported
to the House, during the first week of
die session, but as it now stands, it re
peals only thoKe stamp taxes about
which there has been the most coin
plaint. It ia said that the beer men
might have got a reduction had it not
been for the report so generally circu
lated during the campaign that Senator
Hanna had Promised them a reduction
in exchange for campaign contributions,
It was pointed out by many influential
party men that if the brewer's taxes
aeie reduced it would lie accepted by
the public as confirming that report
Representative Hilt, of Illinois, chair
man of the House committee on foreign
alfairs, does not expect that committee
fo take a conspicuous part In the legii
lation of the session. He said, when
asked o( the probable, work ahead of the
committee: "I suppose there will be
some questions for discussion before the
Foreign Affairs committee, this winter,
although I cannot say there will be much
important business to be brought before
the House. The diplomatic appropri
ation bill will be prepared early, as
usual at the short seeaion."
Representative Kussell, of Connect!
rut, a member of the House, Ways and
Means committee, expressed this
opinion of the work of the session: "I
think the revenue bill will be the flrsl
important measure taken up. It will
probably come ahead of the appropria
tion bills and the army bill, as it will be
ready for presentation the first day of
the session. The army bill may be the
next important measure taken up,
Neither will require much time and both
should lie disposed of without delay. 1
cannot see that any legislation will be
nacexnary at Una session, for the Philip
pines or Porto Uico. A reapportion
meiit bill should be panned before the end
of the session, and I believe tbe ship
subsidy bill should also be passed

It has been expected from the first

They have succeeded in heading off leg
islation for the Nicaragua canal before,
when congressional and public sentiinen
was overwhelmingly in favor of it, and

this government is fully committed to
aud the money provided for the con
struction of the Nicaragua canal.

National Irrigation Congreii.
The holding of the National Irrigation
congress in the east, as it turned ou
was a wise move. Tbe people of that
half of the aountry have had the eubjec
of national irrigation brought home to
them in a manner not otherwise possl
hie. The far reaching importance of th
problem has been presented to them
and a genuine interest haa'jesn awaken
el. Instead of finding opposition In tli
east, the congress found that eastern
men of prominence were more than In'
forested in a proposition which prom
ised an increased western population of
millions of people.
The western delegates went home wil
the feeling that they have the hearty
support of eastern interests in securing
action which will open lo settlement
ball a continent, capable of supportln
fifty million people. They cannot bu
feel that this support is glowing, that
is developing into a great movement
that many people are realizing that
national action would meet such
western development as would increase
the national wealth beyood measure.

The right to labor, love and piay
The right to weep with those that weep
Tbe right to wake when other's sleep,
Tbe right to dry the falling tear,
Tbe right lo quell the rising lear,
The right to smooth tbe brow of csre
And abisuer conifer, in despair.
The right to watch the parting breath,
To sooth and cheer the bed of death ;
Tbe right, when earthly hopes all fall
To poinl to tbat within the vail.
The right the little ones to guide
In simple faith to Him who died
With earnest love and gentle praise
To bless and cheer their youthful days.
The right the intellect to train,
And guide the soul to noble ami
Teach it lo rise above earth's toys
And wing its flight (o heavenly Joys,
The right to live for those we love,
The tight to die that lore to prove;
Tbe right to brighten earthly homes
With pleasant smiles and gentle tones.
Are these thy rights? then usethem sell,
Thy silent influence none can tell,
If these are thine, why ask for more?
Thou hast enough to answer for.
Are these thy rights? then murmur not,
That woman's mission is thy lot;
Improve the talents (iod has given,
Life's duty done, thy rest in heaven.
