not a caress had been interchanged The re lutlons between this impassive man and hit charming daughter were those of wellbred if somewhat distant rela tires On the one hand there was the uniform courtesy of the man of the world toward a woman on the other the deference of a young girl of good breeding toward a person much older than herself But the note of cordial and Intimate affection between lather and child was absolutely missing And yet Agnes Murdock was natural ly of an affectionate and expansive nn ture During her mothers lifetime the two women hnd been inseparable companions united by a strong bond of sympathyMrs head been an invalid for many years before her death and with Agnes had lived either abroad or in the south hiring much of the time la order to escape the rigors of the northern climate Thus the lather en grossed as he was with his occupation and his scientific researches had seen but little of his daughter luring her childhood and had been looked upon bIthe chlldalmott ns a stranger When at last after her mothers death Agnes heartbroken at the loss of her only friend returned to the par ental roof she was a girl of 1C In the first loneliness of her bereavement when hungering for human sympathy and correlation she turned to her fa ther she received patient and dour tcous attention with an offer of all the material comforts and luxuries which wealth could procure but she failed to find the only thing she needed a responsive human heart And yet behind the cold anti selfish cterior of the chemist the young girl had toucfctd a chord which had never i vibrated before In this strange mans being It A probable that the feeling awakened In him by his lovely daughter Wall the neP eat approach to an absorb tag human affection of which his nature was capable Perhaps if the child had been Bufflcifnlly experienced to read her fathers heart she might have per dated in her advances and thus ulti mately have Conquered the cold reserve ike had at first encountered Hut she rrs proud and impulsive and bitterly riHappointed fa her first attempt to win from her father a demonstration of affection cl withdrew Into her iso Uon and evel after met his calm cour tesy with an tqually reserved defer encl The abnormal situation which at first was maintained only by an ef tart on the part of the young girl lost with time much of Its strangeness and ultimately cryrtallized under the potent force of holt t o that It was acv crpteu by the two as the natural out came of their relationship In the first pIng of her bereavement artil disappointment Agnes had turned for consolation to her books and be- Ing left free to dispose of her life as sh saw fit she had planned a course of study whit had in due time rev c lvrd its consecration at one of the lending colleges for women Upon her return from college she hAd as far nn tie was permitted taken charge of her fathers household and hAd presided with charming dignity smtd grace over the social functions for w rich Dr Murdocks house now be came famous Up to the time of his daughters advent the chemists rela tions with the world had been chiefly through the clubs and scientific bodies to which he belonged He was well rev delved in the homes of the members of New York society but in the absence of a woman to di the honors of his own home he was unable to return the hospitality which 5e enjoyed Xow how ever everything was changed Agnes was glad to fini an outlet for her en orgies in the twk of receiving her fa thers guests end being a girl of rev Harkable intelligence and tact she sue cecdd in creating n salon in the best sense of the wird Many of the shin ing lights of tSe world of art litera ture science Rfd fashion were among the regular devotees at the shrine of thii superb young goddess Among the younger men more than one gay moth dazzled by the light of the girls beautiful eyes hall been tempted to hover near the flame only to scorch hit wings Miss MurdocK frt i mlready refuted several ot the beat matches af the city during her two seasons much to the relief or those young men who had not yet sum moncd up courage enough to try their fate and much to the disgust of ti fm amiable young women and several dc signing mammas The lattercould not help but deprecate the wicked selfish ness of a young girl who hypothecate and thus rendered temporarily tin available much potential matrimonial stock which In the nature of things would ultimately be thrown back on the market upon the selection by the fair one of that single bond to whose exclusive possession she was llinitci by the laws of church and state The fact of the matter was tha Agnes Murdocks ideal of life was high She was determined if she ever em barked upon n matrimonial venture to do only with n reasonably good prospect of finding in the wedded state n satisfactory outlet for the depths of affection which had remained so Ion unapplied in her tender maiden heart Ko one among the young men who hind sought her hand hail scemiM worthy of the great love she was rend to bestow She was therefore Mil awaiting her fate You wished to see me sir till young girl gently Insinuated Yes said Murdock with great deliberation I wished to speak to you about He watched her face intently an if tll rend the effect which his words would produce The light in hta eyes was almost tender but Agnes was not skilled in reading their scarcely perceptible shndes of expression Sin looked up Inquiringly noting only the slight hesitation in her fathers speech About n young man continued Murdock with a quizzical smile A flush mounted to the girls checks and she fixed her eyes upon space A young moan who admires you greatly and who Has he asked you to tell me thiar inquired Agnes somewhat impatiently Ohl dear no laughed the chemist he is only too anxious to do so himself He is a most impetuous fellow But I thought It best to prepare you May I ask the name of your pro tege interrupted the young girl Did I say he wits my protege asked Murdock gently I certainly had no intention of conveying any such impression Ills name in Chat hamThomas Chatham A look half of amusement half of vexation came into the girls eyes It did not escape Murdocks close scrutinyI from your reception of the gentlemans name that his suit is not likely to meet with much favor In you eyesI am not aware that I have ever given Mr Chatham any reason to be lieve that it would answered Agnes stifflyAnd yet you must have understood the drift of his attentions during the last few months since Since it has been perfectly clear to every one else you mean And yet the young girl continued reflectively I do not see how without downright rudeness I could have done more than I have to show him that his attentions have been distaste ful to me- Then I may Infer said Murdock smiling that you would not break your heart If He seemed to hesitate In the choice of his words If he should conclude to go abroad on a long journey without subjecting you to hit impending proposal- On the contrary father admitted Agnes I should be everlastingly grateful to you if such n consumma lion could be brought about without unnecessary rudeness or cruelty to wards MrChutham Very well Agnes that Is all I want ed to see you about Agnes looked curiously at her father ac If to read the purpose hidden In the depths of his inscrutable eyes She saw nothing but a polite dismissal In his calm face and the Interview be tween father and daughter ended as It had begun with formal courtesy on both aides CHAPTER VIII THE PORTRAIT Sprague was seated before his easel arranging his palette for the morn- Ings work The unfinished portrait of Agnes Murdock looked down upon him with eyes of living beauty Occasionally the artist would bestow n deft touch upon the gloving fnnvnk mind vould retire to a distance tt5 note with a critical eye the new effect Then he would consult his watch In nervous ifn patience and going to the window lie would glance anxiously and dow ii the street Once or hleetlle rumble of whecls caused him to lookup in glad expectancy which gradually gave way to gloomy discontent as the noise died away in the distance At length Kqpc seemed tojdepart ul together front the young moans brtast lie threw down his brushes gave up all pretense of work and drifted off into n brown fctndy His eyes fixed upon those of the portrait hind n troubled look in them so troubled that it wax learly out of all proportion to the professional disappointment of a painter a lair subject So absorbed did lie become Jn his gloomy meditations that when at last a carriage stopped before the house the attlt hear It lint hen1 presently a gentle tap sounded upon the door of the studio he sprang to his leetas if he had received an electric hock Perhaps He hnd for it was followed by a rapid current of delicious thrills ingling through every nerve and ef meeting in his whole being a sudden tad marvelous transformation At once the furrowed brow was smooth tbe drooping lipa were wreathed in miles the troubled look guve way to one of glut welcome For lie liad come at last There heI stood with laughing brown yea and glowing cheeks when Sprague threw open the door Alas ns usual she was accompanied her maid Never mind was it not enough to have her there nt all to bask in the sunshine of her smile to look into the dangerous depths of those soulstirring eyes to listen to the rippling oi her silvery voice I fear I nm a little late Mr Sprague I nm sorry to have kept you waiting Hut you see this Is how it was What mattered it to him now how it was Was she rot there An eternity of suspense and misery would have been wiped out by that single entran chug fact Her words bent upon his ear like rapturous melody he drank them in hardly conscious of their meaning Agnes Murdock followed by her maid proceeded at once to the dress ingroom set apart for the use of the artists models When she returned dressed for the sitting she assumed tinder Spragues directions the pose of the portrait while the artist critically ar ranged her draperies and adjusted the shades and screens The maid hUll remained in the dress ingroom And so thete are positively the last final touches lire they Mr Sprague asked the young girl mischievously after a few minutes You artists seem to be quite an uncertain about your farewell appearances as any famous ac tress or singer The artist looked up quickly as the girl spoke An expression of pals crossed Ids features Yes Miss Murdock he answered gravely I shall not have to trouble you to pose again Mss Murdocks attention was at eructed by the melancholy note in hula voice She observed him from the cor ner of her eyes in kindly curiosity The artist fell into a moody silence For awhile he worked with feverish acv tlvlty at the portrait and then gradually falling into a fit of melancholy abstraction he sat with poised brush gazing intently at the beautiful girl before him His task forgotten he was apparently unconscious that he was taking advantage of his privileged position to stare at his fair subject Ag nes felt his burning glance and was em barrassed by it hut womanlike she retained control of herself outwardly nt all events tin she uttered some corn monplace remark which broke the spell and brought the artist to his senses with n sharp consciousness of his rudeness lie replied to the young girls question in a low clanged yoke and then relapsed Into n gloomy silence After an awkward interval he asked suddenly Are joit so very gldd Miss Murdock that tv sittings are almost over Why no Mr Sprague replied Ag nee I did nt mean that Of course TES MISS A OKNTIKMAN LEFT IT FOR YOU I shall be glad when the portrait la finished because I wish to have it home and to let my friends sec it that I should be Indeed ungrateful if I be grudged tny poor little time and trouble when yours have been so lavishly and so ungrudgingly spent These sittings have been a source of so much pleasure to me continued Sprague thoughtfully that I havt selfishly overlooked the fact that they could only be an annoyance and a bore to you I fear Lure needlessly pro longed them lift Indeed Mr Sprague I assure you it has been anything but n bore to me to pose I am sure I shall miss the pleasnijt morning hours I have pent

as the iiiannc of their utterance that conveys menu ing lilt it is a truism that a lure Is not a sane man Sprague wax nllt yet satisfied He was about to spell again when a knock sounded upon the door It was the ImlMxiy with a letter Miss Murdock he Inquired Blanc Ing in the direction of the youti girlFor me exclaimed Agnes stir prised Yes miss a gentleman left It for you Agnes took the letter inspected It curiously for nn Instant then ex curing herself she tore open the envelope and unfolded the note which It containedAt deep flush sufficed he1 face and an expression of nnnoyanc passed over her features She glance up hastily at Ppraguc who was ap parcntly hard at work upon the background of the picture The hallboy was waiting expectantly There is no ansvcr sold Agnes quietly dud as the stern mandates of fish Ion either forbid a woman to weal a pocket or else decree that It shall be located in some particularly inac rrsslble position the young girl dropped the letter anti Its envelope Into her lap anti resumed the pose When at last the time came tot Mss Murdock to leave Sprague nc contpanlcd her to her carriage Afte watching It until it disappeared around tho corner he returned moodily to the studio As he entered the room his eyes fixed In a vacant stare upon the floor whlttllaclianlcnlly he pushed it to one slat with bin foot The sunshine seemed to have gone with Agnes unlock A gloom hall fallen upon the place timid its occu pant The artist tried to work but he was restless and depressed At length he threw down his hrtiMirft and rising from the easel IIP put on his hat and coat and started out lo a walk in the hope that rxerclsi would drive awny the blue drill whose grip he felt tightening upon his heartstrings Meeting some friends in the course of his aimless wanderings he wm persuaded to spend the rut of thC day In their company and returned to his bachelor quarters late in tin evening tired enough physically tt obtain that healthful sleep which

Says the commission Now for the first time rose the ilea of national Independence Agulnaldo Issued n proclamation In whkii he took the re sponsibility of promising It to hU people on behalf of the American Government although he admitted freely In private conversation with member of his cabinet that neither Admiral Dewey nor any oth er American had made hint any such promise nrnnrth of Friction The report state that Agulnaldo wished to attack the American when they lauded at iarannque but wax tip terred by luck of anus and ammunition From that point on there was a growing friction between the Filipino and the American troops There were no conferences says the report between the ofllcer of the Fill pino and our olllcer with a view to operating against the Spaniards nor wax there cooperation of any kind There never was any preconcerted opera 11011 or any combined movement by the United States and Filipino against the Spaniards Iteference lit made to Agulnaldo domain that he be allowed to loot Manila and take the arms of the Spaniards Th hitter demand said to confirm the state ment that he Intended to get pOHMsition of the anus to attack the American Wultlnu for Pretext Further evidence of the hostile Inten tion of the Filipinos WON found In the organization of popular cut which later oil furnished H local militia to at lack the Americans The decrees of the Filipino

determination wan strength ened lie did not openly declare that he Intended to light the Americans but he excled everybody aud especially the mil itary men by claiming Independence and It is doubtful whether he hall the power to check or control the army at the time hostilities broke out Nn Alternative Left Deplorable Q war li the one In which we are now engaged war unavoidable by us We were attacked by a bold ad venturous and enthusloitlc army No alternative was left to us except Igno mlnlou retreat It It not to be conceived of that any American would have sanc tioned the surrender of

be there lit no course open ton now except tie prosecution of the war until the Insurgents art reduced to rub mloloii The commission Is of the opln lot that there has been no tine since the dcHtructlou of the Spanish itquadron by Admiral Dewey when It was possible lo withdraw our forces from the Islands either with honor lo out or with safety to the Inhabitant Heltjn of Terror The commissioners tben take up the condition of the country nt the time of their arrival comparing it with condi tion existing when they left n short time ago A vivid picture is given of the an archy existing among the Inhabitant In and about mulls during the early spring The situation In the city says the commission wn a load Incendiary fires occurred dally The streets were utmost deserted Halt of the native population hind Hiil nml most of the remainder were shut In their houses Htulnexs wits nt n stindxtlll Insurgent troops everywhere faced our lines and tilt sound of rifle lire was

Immediately adjacent to Manila the people were miltoil In their opposition to us liven hero there was n strong conservative element consisting of people of wealth and Intelligence opposed to the war Under the head The HcMllon not a National Movement the report treat of the rebellion outside of the provinces of Luzon where It Is stated the uprU log was viewed nt first with Indifference nnd Inter with fear Throughout the archipelago at large there was trouble only nt those points to which nrmed Tn gale laud been sent In considerable num hers Ak American Help The machinery of Insurgent govern

administration throughout the Interior was worse than In the days of Spanish misrule In many province there was absolute anarchy and from nil vide came petition for protection smith help In speaking of Gen MncArthur movement northward the report tells of the insurgent method of Intimidating time native by telling thrum fearful tales con cerning the American soldier This method of procedure eminently successful at first In the end recoiled on its authors Troops llrlnit Pence As to the state of affair whets the commlxxlon left the report says Hefore the commli iiin left the Philippines nearly nil the Inhabitant had returned to those ruined villages Many of the IIOUKCX had been rebuilt Fields that had lain fallow for three years were green with growing crops Municipal theepeople protected by our troops were enjoying peaor security null n degree of participation In their own government previously unknown In the history of the Philippine Attempts of the Insurgent to raise recruits and money In the prov ince of Kutacun were proving abortive except when backed by bayonet std huh lets and even In such cases the natives were applying to us for help to resist themThe chapter devoted to INtabllshtnent of Municipal Governments gives In de tail the efforts In that direction There were many dlfllcultle encountered The condition of the people was found to be must pitiable They had been plundered rohbttItfood so that they were literally starving Peaceful citizens had Inen tired one Wom en had been multrivitid- Plnn of Government There wn general satlxfuctlon

been assigned to this work by Gen Otis the commission prepared a simple scheme of municipal government similar enough to the old system to be readily comprehensible to the natives but giving them liberties which they had never before enjoyed This scheme was adopted and gave general satisfaction In every Instance enthusiasm ran high before the commissioner took their de parture and cheers were raised for Gen Lawton and for the country which be represented Secure Good Kciiitt With a single exception the officials elected proved worthy of the trust Impos ed in them nnd condition very rapidly Improved In the newly organized towns Governments were organized with more satisfactory result In Pandocan Santa Ann San Felipe Men San Pedro and Machel while a slightly different system was put Into

In Cebu we have only to reckon with the lawlttlrllltlIt which has never been very formidable there Special attention is given to the Island of Negro nit lhla seemed n field well adapted to the extension of an American system Here the natives have adopted n local form of government including n congress and hnd raised the American ling They believed themselves capable of managing their own affairs and asked for n battalion of troop to hold In check n mountainous band of fanatic The battalion was furnished but the people proved unable to carry out their program owing to 111 feeling among their own ofll cjnl The American remained popular Need American Rule At the request of Gen Otis a new and simplified scheme of government for the Island giving the people a large voice In their affair but placing tin American In full control was put Into operation It brought about satisfaction nod public order is heater In the Island today than nt any time during the last twenty years Summarizing the failure of time unlive form of government und the success of the American control the commission says The flat failure of this attempt to es tablish an Independent native government in Negro conducted as It won under time most favorable circumstance makes It apparent that Kerr ns well ns In the less favored provinces a large amount of American control at preset absolutely essential to a successful administration of public affairs Effort for Peuce The efforts at conciliation with nnldo and his various commissions mire set forth In detail These commissioners were assured of the beneficent purposes of the United States nail the Presidents readiness to grant the Filipino people as large n measure of home rule and os ample liberty alt consistent with the of government subject only to the re ognition of the sovereignty of the States a point which being established the commission Invariably refused even to discuss The commission adds that nothing came of negotiations nit Aguinaldo rmlxsnrle s were without powers mud merely eame end came again for Information Courts Otis reception was accorded to the Insur gent cotninlsslon nnd earnest nppenl made to stop further bloodshed nil witnessing the spirit of patient conciliation exhibited by the American commission In endenvorlng to reach an nmlcnble adjust ment with the Insurgents as well an the obduracy of Agulnaldo- On Self Gnvernment The report sums up the result of these fruitless exchanges aa follows No better proof could be furnished that the primary object of his struggle Is not as is pretended time liberty of the Filipino peoples but the continuance of Ida own arbitrary and despotic power In any event the American people may feel confident that no effort was omitted by till commission to secure a peaceful end of the struggle but the opportuni ties they offered and urged were all neg lected If not Indeed spurned The chapter devoted to Capacity for SelfGovernment U the result the re port states of diligent Inquiry for several months In the course of which n great number of witnesses were exam ludot all shades of political thought and varieties of occupation tribe und lo cality Tribes Not a Nation The most striking and perhaps the most significant fact In the entire situation Is the multiplicity of tribes inhabiting time archipelago the diversity of their lau guage which are mutually unintelligi bur and the multifarious phase of clv ilization ranging all the way from the highest to the lowest As to this the report snysm The Filipinos are not a nation but a variegated assemblage of different tribes and peoples and their loyalty is still of the tribal type Convernlng their Intellectual capacities the commission says All to the general Intellectual rapart ties of the Filipinos the commission ill dis posed to rate thorn high lint excepting In n limited number of persons these ca parities have out been developed by education or experience The masses of time people are uneducatedNeed That Intelligent public opinion on which popular government rests does not exist In the Philippines And It cannot exist until education has elevated the masses broadened their Intellectual hori zon mind disciplined their faculty of judg went And even then the power of self government cannot be assumed without considerable previous training and experi ence under the guidance and tutelage of nn enlightened and liberal foreign power For the bald fact is that the Filipinos have never had ally experience In governing themselves The report show that thiis Inability for selfgovernment is tine to the old Span- Ish regime which gave the Filipinos lit the or no port In governing themselves After reviewing this Spanish system the commission sums up on this point This isrtll the training in selfgovern anent which the Inhabitants of the Phil ippine Islands have enjoyed Their lack of education and political experience combined with their racial nnd linguistic diversities disqualify them in spite of their mental gifts and domestic virtues to undertake the task of governing the nrchlpelngo lit the present time The most that can he expected of them is to cooperate with the Americans in the administration of general nffalrs from Mnniln as n center and to undertake subject to American control or guidance Inlt may be found necessary the admin istration of provincial nail municipal af fair Must Retain Kule Fortunately there are educated Fili pintos though they do not constitute a large proportion of the entire population and their support null services will be of Incalculable value In Inaugurating and maintaining the new government As ed ucation advance and experience ripens the natives may be Intrusted with ft larg er and more Independent share of govern ment selfgovernment ns the American Ideal being constantly kept In view as time goal In thl way American sovi r eighty over the archipelago will prove a great political boon to the people Should our power by say fatality be withdrawn the commission believes that the government of the Philippines would rpecdlly lapse Into anarchy which would excuse If It did not necessitate the in tervention of other power sad tine tell teal division of the Islands among them Only through American occupation therefore is the idea of n free tselfgov online and united Philippine common wealth nt nil conceivable And the In dispensable need from the Filipino point of view of maintaining American sover eignty over the archipelago U recognized by all Intelligent Filipinos and even by those insurgent who desire nn American protectorate The latter it U true would take time revenues aid leave us the re sponsibilities Nevertheless they recog nize time Indubitable fact that the Fill pino cannot stand alone Thus the welfare of the Filipino coincides with the dictates of national hoc or in forbidding our abandonment of time archipelago AVe cannot from any point of view escape the responsibilities of gov ernment which our sovereignty entails amid the commission Is strongly persuaded that the performance of our natlollnl duty will prove the greatest blessing to time peoples of the Philippine Island 1rnlne for Troop One of the closing chapters of thrp port Is devoted to a tribute to our sol diers and sailors In the war The coma mission says that the presence of Admiral Dewey as a member of this body makes it unfitting to dwell on his personal achievements but he join In the eulogy of his comrades The commissioners wit nessed some of the ninny brave deeds of our soldiers nnd they declare that all that skill courage nnd n patient endurance can do has been done In the Philippine They dismiss tie reports of the desecrating of churches the murdering of prisoners and the committing of unmen tionable crime and say they are glad to express the belief that a war WOK nevermore humanely conducted adding It churches were occupied It was only It a military necessity and frequently their use ns forts by the Insurgents lead made It necessary to train our artillery upon them llrluht Trade Future opportunityliberty after being disarmed and fed Up to the time of our departure although numerous spies had been captured not a single Filipino had been executed Such wrongs alt were casually committed against the natives were likely to be brought to our attention and In every case that we Investigated we found n willingness on the part of those In nuttier ity to administer prompt Justice commissioner give a general view of the value of the Islands their richness In agricultural and forest products their mineral wealth and their commandfng geographical position They state that the Philippine Islands should soon become one of the great trade centers of the East Manila Is already connected by new steamship lines with Australia India and Japan and she will become the mutual terminus of many other lines when a ship canal connects the Atlantic with the Pacific It cannot bI doubted that commerce will greatly Increase and the United States will obtain a large share In this treatment Benefit to Islands Nthusthe bubonic plague should become a dis tributing center for China Slam the Strait Settlements Tonqulu Aunnm aud i Australia The report concludes i Our control means to the Inhabitants of the Philippine internn peers and or R der a guarantee against

making power transferred from congress to himself lip aUo urged a heavy bond Lane to eecnre one million dollars for time purchase of arms and ammunition It Is now known that elaborate plans had beea

Pilar slept In the city every night Zfo definite date bad been set for the at tack but a signal by mean of rockets tad been agreed upon and it was univer sally understood that It would come upon the occurrence of the first act on the part of the American forces which would Afford a pretext and In the lack of such act Inthe near future at all events Per latent attempts were made to provoke our soldiers to fire The insurgents were insolent to our guards and made persistent and continuous efforts to push them back and advance the Insurgent lines fur ther Into the city of Manila It was long and trying period of Insult and abuse heaped upon our soldiers with constant submission as the only means of avoid lug an open rupture The Filipinos had concluded that our soldiers were cowards mid boasted openly that we were afraid of them Humors were always prevalent that our army would be attacked at once With great tact and patience the com manding general had held his forces IB check and he now made a final effort to preserve the peace by appointing a corn mission to meet a similar body appointed Tjy Aguinaldo to confer with regard to the situation of affairs and to arrive at a mutual understanding of the Intent purposes aims and desires of the Fill ptiiu people and of the people of the Unit ed States Six sessions were held the last occurring on Jan six days before the outbreak of hostilities No substan tial results were obtained the Filipino commissioners being either unable or un willing to give any definite statements of the intent purposes and alms of their people at the close of the last session they were given full assurances that no hostile act would be Inaugurated by the United Slates troops The critical moment hail now arrived Agulnaldo secretly ordered the Filipinos Who were friendly to him to seek refuge outside the city The Nebraska regiment at that time was In camp on the east line at Santa Mesa and was guarding Its front For days before thin memorable 4th of February 1800 the outposts In trout of the regiment lied been openly t menaced and assaulted by Insurgent sol 4lerti they were attempting to push our J outposts back aud advance their Urns Alley mode light of our sentinels and per ts latently Ignored their order On the evening of the 4th of Febru ary M Insurgent offlcer clime to the front ii with a detail of men and attempted to pass the guard ou the San Juan bridge our guard being stationed at the west end of the bridge The Nebraska sentinel drove them back without firing but a few minutes before 9 oclock that evening a large body of Insurgent troops tussle an advance on the South Dakota outposts which fell luck rather than tire About the same time the insurgents came In force to the east end of the San Juan bridge in front of the Nebraska regiment For several nights prior thereto a lieu tenant In the Insurgent army had been coming regularly to our outpost No 2 of the Nebraska regiment and attempting to force the outpost back and insisting on posting his guard within the Nebraska lines and at this time and lu the dark ness he again appeared with n detail of about six men and approached Private fJrayson of Company D First Nebraska volunteers the sentinel on duty at out post No 2 He after halting them three times without effect tired killing the lieutenant whose men returned the fire and then retreated Immediately rockets were sent up by the Filipinos and they commenced firing all along the line The story of the actual fighting has often been told by military men who were engaged In It nod we do not deem it necessary to give n description of It hero It Is known of all men that Imme diately after the first shot the Insurgents opened fire all along their line and con tinned to tire until about midnight anti about 4 oclock on the morning of Feb 5 the Insurgents again opened fire all around the city and kept It up until the Americans charged them and drove them with great slaughter out of their trenches After the lauding of our troops Agul naldo made up his mind that It would br necessary to fight the Americans and ut ter the making of the treaty of peace at Parts this determination was strengthen ed lIe did not openly declare that he Intruded to fight the Americans but he excited everybody and especially the mil- Itary men by claiming Independence and it Is doubtful whether he had the power to chock or control the army nt the time hostilities broke out Deplorable as war Is the one In which we are now engaged was unavoidable by us We were attack ed by a bold adventurous and enthusiastic army No alternative was left to us except Ignominious retreat It is not to be conceived of that any American would have sanctioned the surrender of Manila to the Insurgents Our obligations to other nations mid to the friendly Fili pinos and to uursrlnnll our hag de manded that force should be met by force Whatever the future of the Philippines may be there Is no course open to us now except the prosecution of the war until the insurgents are reduced to submission The commission is of the opin ion that there has been no time since the destruction of tit Spanish squadron by Admiral Dewey when It was i oslble to withdraw our forces from the Islands either with honor to ourselves or with safety to the inhabitants On the very night the actual fighting began Agulnuldo issued the following Order to the Philippine Army Nine oclock p m this date I received from Caloocan station a message rom municated to me that the American forces without prior notification or any just motive attacked our camp at San Juan del Monte anti our forces garrison lag the blockhouses around the outskirts of Manila causing losses among our sot diers who In view of this unexpected aggression and of the decided attack of the aggressors were obliged to defend themselves until tho firing became general all along the line No one can deplore more than I this rupture of hostilities I

trusted friend and lieutenant In the emergency which confronted him- Heretofore Democratic presidential candidates have gamed public respect and strength by having the open enmity of Tammany Mr Hrynn who more thou any of them has boasted of his stand for principle and his Integrity of character has done what Mr Seymour Mr Til 4en and Mr Cleveland would not do Ie has formed an open alliance offensive and defensive with Tammany and that too at a time when that organization Is known to be thoroughly conipt and a constant menace to all the best Interests of good government Unity with 1npullH Mr Bryan hardly appeals to the thoughtful citizen with whom political parties are only agencies for public good to the extent that they stand for funda mentally right principle and honest ad ministration when upon the one hand he Is presented by the Populists and on the other by Tmnmnny The joining panda with one constitutes an offense ngalnst safety In governmental administration the

trines announced only In a more offensive way It must not be forgotten that the re affirming of the principle of the Chicago platform was the repledglng of an Inten tion when opportunity Is afforded to debase the countrys currency It was re astanltlng the Supreme Court of the country It menus a realllance with the elements nf disorder nil against the prop erly conitltuled authorities of peace In tegrity nf property and person It Is the announcing once snore of a desire to get Into power that the sacred right of pri tate contract under the guaranty of law may be abrogated It la the acceptance

enforcement of law cold the right of private contract Mr Hryans position can hardly be ns satisfactory a one on nn analysis growing out of the Spanish war He and his friends In order to put the administration to a political disadvan age urged on the declaration of war with Spain and when It was over Mr Bryan personally at Washington through personal advice and solicitation brought Into line a sutllclent number of Democratic Senators to ratify the treaty of Paris despite the fact that It provided for the purchase and taking sovereign possession of Porto Rico and the Philip pines without any provision for giving them any home government whatsoever The evils and burdens of the present mo went growing out of the Spanish war are to be laid as much at the door of Mr Ilryan nod his party ns at that of Mr McKInley and hits Ills explanation of his reason for wishing the treaty ratified Is wholly superficial and does not bear analysis Policy on Philippines I Imagine that xelfgovernment will come quite as readily through the admin istration of Mr McKInley as through that of Mr Hryan It will not come un der either until the Philippines are fitted for It property rights safe and personal ones protected I hardly believe Mr Bryan could do more than send a com mUnlon there as the President has dune In order to take steps looking to sup planting the military government with n civil one The country will not sanction the Im mediate abandonment of those Islands to disorder and pillage When a time cornea that there IIIntel1 in a constitutional hone government only remaining within the sphere of the lullueiicc of the Unit ed States and public sentiment Is to this end It can be put down that Mr Me Ivluleya administration will readily grant It for I believe It Is generally admitted that no one Is more ready to put himself In touch with public Hctitlment than the President or act In accordance there with with more alacrity If Mr Bryan means an immediate abandonment of our control In the Islands he must certainly fall of support for no thoughtful person will sanction a policy which will make the country ridiculous in the eyes of the world Would Not Taut Him It Mr Bryan and his party hind stood out as tiny should have agnlnst the Span lab war and hind opposed Instead of us sifted In ratifying the Paris treaty they would be In a better position to confront Hepubllcan plan and purpose for they would at least be consistent with their action As It Is now they urged the war hit now wish to avoid the consequence tn order to gain political power by so doing A It Is I dont sec that Mr Bryan is of an expanslonbt through force of clrcurnatanccM which he assisted In creating than U Mr McKInley The STEP A of difference is certainly not great enough to slake any man surrender hits convey louts on other great questions to accept hint upon one It may also lie fairly doubted whether a man with so many erroneous Ideas as to the conduct of the domestic affairs of the nation can bo trusted to have right ones when It cornea to managing our foreign properties An to Porto Rico As to the question growing out of the Porto limit tariff I believe the admin istration made n most egregious error but as Democracy Is now constituted and con trolled It stiiiuU for nothing so far as a tariff policy is concerned It has nban doled all the advantages of lIt position on this question by advocating In Its all ver policy the very worst kind of protec tion Mr Itryan stands responsible for making It n party unable to manfully advocate a Democratic tariff doctrine It Is today under Mr Hrynn leader ship n party a desire for special prlvWfges nnd class legislation ap pealing for the support of every element of discontent by fulling In with and ad vocating the particularly special legisla thou which such element Simula for Its demagogy is manifest on every hand KnUliii the liner lusno What and Inquiring person can jiosslbly believe that either Mr Hry an or the delegates at Kansas City are really deeply solicitous to the extent which It Is made to nppcnr that they areas to the nlleged wrongs of the Hoers In South Africa Is It not manifest through the thin ditgulsc of a love of human freedom rights and republican form of government that Mr Bryan mud Lila fol lowers hope for the German nod Dutch vote ns n determining factor In the elec inn because of racial nUlllatlons with the Itocrs and a supposed nice prejudice against Great Itrltuln and riot because the question or the integrity of tb110lr republics Is dear lo them It Is absurd hut till great questions with which we have to do affecting the vital Interests of the United States shall be overlooked In n upon how ireut means Interpreted that the people of the United States shall attend to their own affairs unit let European na tions look after In German Having voiced such a sentiment the Kansas City convention under the In spiration of Mr Bryan Immediately pro coeds for political effect to express a wish to Interfere with n Kuropean guy ernment In a matter strictly Its own I think such politics cheap nod unstates manlike quite beneath the dignity of any great party or leader I shall he surprised If any Ciermnn voter heretofore the bulwark of the coun try against every assault upon the In tegrity of the countrys currency system and protesting agnlnst any debasement of the country coin will aid and abet such n proceeding because of a belief In any Injustice done by Great Itrltain to some affiliated race ten thousand miles awayIf Ir Bryan was a statesman and pot n mere

but would hnve Instead suggested solutions grounded upon principles and lu accord with the facts of national history mid national experience nipitruit IIU Wisdom I am sure the American people rightly distrust the wisdom of one who thus far In life has been a living expression In every address he has made of that best definition of the essential elements of stump speech namely to claim everything and denounce well I am not unmindful of the fact that there are runny conditions In this country requiring careful thoughtful and statesmanlike dealing with There are many evils to which labor Is subject that tired to be remedied Likewise there are tinny prejudices unjustly entertained against capital but In neither Instance can they be dealt with to the good of all by any one who brings to them none of the ele ments of a statesman anti all of those which wholly make up the succesiful stump speaker and campaign orator Where Kemedlc Lie I believe that more of the remedy lies without the

reading in black allJ white of the record of prosperity at this time very timely Future success must ulways be based on the lessons of past experience It the American people Ir jire to continue In the prosperity which they have been enjoying the last four yearn it Is by considering with serious arnestness the data of such prosperity making thereon the one possible decision and expressing such decision with salu tary emphasis at the polls this next No vember The Mnie the Foundation In the remarkable speech four years ago by which Mr Bryan sprang Into fame nnj Into the nomination for the presidency he expressed the Democrat ic Idea that If yon make the manse pros perous their prosperity will find its way up and through every c1all and rest Upon Literallyl Indeed hits thN general ex presslou of tin old Idea been fulfilled by the Uepnbllcan party under President McKinley It Is one thing to have a rather Indcff oito Idea as to what desirable nsult would be It another thing to success tally occompll h stich a result Both the Bopubllcan and the Demo cratic parties mude their promises in 1890 to restore prosperity to rhe people The masses saw through the quackery of the Democratic plan of being made pros perous by the payment of wages in 48 fut dollars so they turned down Bryau and elected McKlnley 1resident- Mr McKIrley had somewhat facetious tf been termed the advance agent of prosperity So soon ns he wa elected Democratic organs got themselves ready for Riicvrlng Interrogatories of Why dont the show rome It came however with such startling promptness as to pro dura the bewilderment of despair among 1hl few whose own prosperity was de pendent on nnrcxtfnl despair among tlie tunysc The prosperity show was soon found to be no humbug Tlie people had Indeed not been deceived by the advance agent They were soon getting mot then they had really dared to expect The Unlocking of Money Tlie first manifestation of the prosper ity movement was the unlocking of vast gumi of money from hoarding nml the placing of it on deposit at the bunks Tlie statements of hanks during the autumn f and winter months of JSO7 showed henry und steady increases In deposits There were also striking gains in clear Ings indicating n greater rapidity in the movements of money first IlepnUlcan measure positively conducive to the present prosperity wns the Ding Jey tariff bill which did not become n law until July 14 1807 yet general bust ness waited not for Its passage Infore discounting the great Improvement In general conditions which It was obvi ous would soon ensue When ISO licgan tlie gloom of four years of Democratic1 hard times was still 1J1Iln over till country discouraging enterprise mid bllglitiug such Industries as tried to exist With the Inauguration of President McKinlcy the vast Institu tion of business credit on which Is vitally dependent the Industrial prosperity of nil classes of people began nt once to n cover from the destructive effects of the four years of panicbreeding sliver agita tion and front the general loss of couli deuce caused by the fiscal blunders of the Cleveland administration The overwhelming defeat of Ilryon the preceding November had given the coun try the idea that free silver was a dead Jftsue and that the Democratic party would not have the Inconceivable inner ity to revive It four yean Inter mill in cldenlaily Bryan whose chief god was the silver Idol The free trade policy of President Cleveland had done harm In two ways iPrimarlly Ic had resulted In the closing of mllU the country over the driving out of employment thousands of American L1 workmen a general lowering of the traces of those still kept nt work and the loss of profitable markets to the farm ers who supply the workmens dinner pail Secondly the Wilson faw though In tended to be n tariff for revenue only was drawn up on such grossly erroneous fiscal estimates by Secretary CarlUIe that It even failed to produce the revenue nec essary to pay the current expenses of the Government Hevenue rrodnclnjr Protection The total deficiency caused by the tour years operation of the Democratic tariff law was 1558 H1S3 It was this lack of revenue which forced President Cleve land into the burdening of the country with Jlirjsnoiar of mw debt The only way by which the U overtimed t could fully pay its current expenses was by drawing on its gold reserve The only way by which President Cleveland could enforce his cnmtueniliihe resolve to protect the gold reserve mid thus prevent his admin istntiuii from going out with the coun try hopelessly busted through free ail- cr was by the issuing of bonds The Dingley act was as expected success both as a revenue producing and as n protective measure Within a few months from Its passage nil predictions were verified and the receipts for No vember and December 1S07 nml Janu ary February and Murch 1SOS exceeded the monthly disbursement of the treas ury The Circulation of Gold An interesting phenomenon noticeable in 1S07 was the appearance of sold in even the channels of common eirctiiiUlon Anybody who wanted gold coin perlups for the novelty of seeing what bud le come n rare sight could go to a bink and exchange paper or silver for cold and find that the banker made the ox change not reluctantly but very gladly Itryan bad pointed to the apparent scar city of gold coin and to the difficulty thnt hall been attendant on keeping up the gold reserve as proof of his theory that the volume of gold was too small to form a snQIClent basis for the money circula tion of the country But after lirynn wa given leisure to write tip The First Battle gold ceased to lie scarce for It had come from hiding and noiiody es pecially wanted It Sincef doubt had been so complexly removed and our own peo ple as well ns the whole world had been given so thoroughly to know that nil kinds of American III on 1Wfrl just as good as gold every bit then why should gold be especially wanted when other kinds of money were not only just us good but were more handy to carry The Full Dinner Pal In the autumn of 1S 7 there was nn enormous crop of wheat In the United States Other yenrs however have seen bumper crops but mighty poor prices and no prosperity Kansas has seen corn through heavy crops become cheap that It used for fuel Itut In 1S7 there was a demand for wheat corn und other grains The full dinner pnllIIf the American workman wns becoming n new factor In tlie ratio of demand to supply of farm products Tile mills were again being opened through the passage of the Dingley bill Capital wnt becoming more nggresslve in enter prise and saw profits not losses in busi ness expansion With the American worklngmnn In such a position that his dinner pall had to be filled first the foreigner was put Into an excited Impatient worrisome mood America despite Its enormous crop contrary to precedents was not selling liberally Consequently price went booming upward The average price Sll1lIltliISOi less than 11 cents und In 180i It was 73 rillIForeign money and the money of the populated centers of the ISast begun pour Ins Into the great agricultural area of the Middle West The farmers who had been barely able to keep the wolf from the door und pre vent loss of mortgaged honu tpuls now felt themselves flushed with wealth They began fo spend money for clothing food farming tonN nml to pay olT tlielr mort gages A great debtor class to whom llryan had vainly hinted tlie saving that could come to them by the clienllng of tlulr creditor thrinsh 42ccul dollar fust became a creditor class Accounts were parted at country banks nml farm ers who had been borrowers of money be came lenders of money Of course this crent prosperity of the fnriner began nt once to increase the prosperity ifr the city laborer who had furnished the initial rill given hliii through the victory of the Kepubllcnn party There are upwards of 8iOOO 0 farmers In the 1iilted States us ugultut 5000000 Industrial workers Inruicr Make Work for Woe Karncr These 8500000 farmers made extraor dinarily heavy buyers of what the 5000 000 Industrial workers produced As n consequence great Indnxfries which hail been stagnant under Democracy became active and profitable In competition fer labor they were forced generally to raise wages The enormous expansion In the value of extorts from the United States from 701302502 for the ycsr ended June SO 1805 toiM30418it71 tor the year ended June BO 1100 constitutes one of the most significant features of the prosperity movement During the three years of Republican rule the balance of trade grew to be 1483507091 favoring this country This expansion deserves to lie studied not only because of Its plain showing of millions mid millions of dollars Increased wnlth to this country during the last four years hut also because of Its In structive relation to till many and di verse political theories which have been loose from time to time among the Amer ican people especially among some col lege professors who In the seclusion of their studies think too much and know by actual experience of the worM too lit tle and by men like Itryan who think too little The free trade school of thought theor izes fin the equilibrium of International exchanges It reasons that If one nation adopts a protective tariff It will cut down Imports hut that this will be balanced by loss In viilume of exports on the clear enough principle that nations like Indi IIIII Ilnllnol long continue to buy from customers to whom they cannot sell If exports of merchandise do not fall ofT with imports the reasoning concludes then there must at least lie a balancing outward movement of gold which may disorder home money markets Some free traders also Indulge In the pecullnr the orizing that by hindering Imports we hin der property wealth from coming to us and that by not also hindering It from being exported from us we steadily grow poorer Protection Part In Prosperity The prosperity experience of the last four years has shown that a protective tariff wisely applied cnn without ques tion be a means of enriching a great nn tion like our own The passage of tile Dlngley bill was the direct menus of re storing prosperity to n large number of Industries In this country which under the Wilson law Ouhluot compete In the home markets with Europe tlrcn pro tection in their home market these Indus tries were enabled to pay attention to for eign markets The protected Iron and steel Industry gained so vastly In power anil strength that it
