The local President came rushing into
the captain's office the other day and
exclaimed that a body of insurrectos
had been seen trayeling across country
a few miles west of Calaaiba, and the
nn who broueht the news said he
was auite sure he were a body
General Melvar's troops who had caused
the Americans so much trouble in this
Southern Province. The captain at
once ordered out a squad of 20 mounted
men. and as the captain gave me per
mission to go we mounted and rode at a
apid pace for about four miles, passing
scattered Philippine villages, ancient
pueblos, still inhabited by non-com
batant's, and these old ruinea anu
bandoued cathedrals which gives lo
the region Its peculiar atmosphere oi
At last we came upon an olu aban
doned sugar mill, and near by lound
three hombres, cutting bimboo. Their
actions did not suit the captain so be
ordered that tbey be taken prisoners.
After questioning them without gaining
any knowledge as to the body of insru-
rectos who were at that pom during me
morning, the captain ordered three men
to take one man and go a few paces out
sight into the bamboo, and fire one shot
to make the remaining two believe their
comrade had been shot. One ef the men
returned and took the second man, and
the cantain asked him where their arms
were, but be pleadod ignorant and was
taken away into the thicket, when the
.i.arn renort of the Krag was heard
again. One of the .oldiers cume out to
take the third man, when he expressed
his willingness to show us where their

this old sugar mill and inside we found
three rifies and two bolos. Then the
two natives that were supposed to have
been killed were brought out iu the
presence of the third and the expression
on their faces when brought togeuier
was really amusing.
Placing a guard over the prisoners we
left the main traveled load and went
north towards the Calamba rivel aeross
larger tracts of cane fields, reaching Hie
top of a small hill we c u!d see perhaps
20 men or more just crossing the liver.
We opened fire on them but with no
effect, they soon disappeared lulo the
tropical jungle on the other aide) ol the
river. We advanced to the river but
decided not to follow any further as the
tropical growth was so great we could
not travel on horse back. Turning up
the river we came upon a bamboo house
with the white flag flying from one of
the windows. It is Invariably true at
this stage of the insurrection that wher
ever the white Hag is there are insur
gents close at hand, rjearcning me

a poor dog. Setting fire to the house
we rode a few paces back to see it burn

I would (urther recommend to ma
committee on literature and exhibits,
that as soon aa the mining exhibit has
been placed, that suitable literature be
prepared (or showing np the tarled re
sources and advantages of our county.
Let an article be prepared on our mines
by soma well known mining" man, and
on agricultural resources, by some one
qualified to write such an article. Let
the lumbering interests be written np
by a lumbering man, and the history ol
the county, with its development to ins
present time, and its future possibilities,
be given in charge of some one well
posted on that subject. In my judge
ment, each of these articles should nrsi
appear In our local papers over iu
signature of the writer, and later be put
in pamphlet form for free distribution.
By the foregoing suggestions I nave
by no means exhausted tho possibilities
of work to be done by the several com
nilttees, but U tho work, aa outlined,
bo performed, I shall have more than
exhausted your funds.
I havo to say in conclusion, I look
forward to the coming year as one of
business sctivity for Southern Oregon,
snd I believe Grants Pass will ba more
prosperous than in any year of It pre
vious history, and I beliove this club
can be an important factor in the devel
opment of Josephine county. I am,
with great respect, Yours,
