WASHINGTON. Aug. 12—The an
nual report of Major-General Mac-
Arthur, dated July 4, 1901, the day he
relinquished command of the division
of the Philippines, has been received
at the War Department. The period
covered by the report is from Oc­
tober 1, 1900, when the last report
from General MacArthur was dated,
He reviews the policy of the Fili-

organized desperate resistance by
banding the peoDle together in sup­
port of the guerrillas. This was car­
ried out by means of secret commit­
tees, who collected contributions, in­
flicted punishment« and carried on a
considerable opposition to the Ameri-
cans. General MacArthur reviews

Washington, Aug. 13.—The state
department was without additional
information today concerning the
Venezuela-Colombia situation, or of
the revolutionary outbreak on the
Isthmus. These two troubles are dis­
tinct, one being on the west and the
other on the east coast of Colombia.
The Ranger, which has been ordered
to get in readiness at San Diego, Cal.,
for a trip to Panama, is a small cruis­
er of 1,020 tons displacement, and has
been engaged for some time past in
survey work on the Pacific coast and
in Central American waters. It is
possible that her services at the seat
of trouble will suffice and that a bat­
tle ship will not be needed to make
the long trip from the north.
Ranger has a main battery of six four-
inch rapid-fire guns and a secondary
battery of four six-pounders and a
Colt gun. She has a complement of
21 officers and 127 men.

Washington, Aug. 14.—The state

Caracas, Venezuela, to use his good
offices for Colombia in case the Co-

capital leaves that country.
