to ask the United States Philippine.
commission to nakia stutomcnUas to
what terms would be offered the
rebels, if the latter surrender.
A large commission ol Filipinos Is
said to have been appointed to confer
with General Outs to the end of se
curing peace, according to General
Lagarda. The Americans, however,
believe this commission, which will
number a score or more of wealthy
Filipinos, want to protect their prop
crty rather than end the war.
The object or the rubl commission
ers Is sild to be to secure -as uia.iy
rights of beir government as possible,
demand that all the oltllces be reserved
for Filipinos nud Americans, and re
store peace, One of Agulnaldo's lato
chiefs In Maniit declares the rebol
would now bo glad to reserve over
tures, and would sign a peace treaty.
The London Times, commenting ed
itorially upon General Lawton'r return
rroui tho Laguna de Day district In
the Philippines, finds nothing sur
pr sing or discouraging.
"British generals have orten had to
do the same thing," says the Times,
"in slmular situations. The grave
matter is the reported discontent of
the American troops but all or the
countries pursuing a foreign foe have
hud the same thing to contend with,
and ne doubt tho United Stites will
