There is no "fourth" parngrah in

to the press.
The War department received the
fo'lowinsr this morning:
Manila, Eib. 21. Adjutant Gen

reports on the 19th inst. that the in
surgent forces a few miles out from
Iloilo are believed to be disintegrat

with present force. Business in the
city is being resumed.
Ho has sent up four representative
men, oHieials from the capital of the
island of Xegros, where the American
Hag was raised and American protec
tion requested against a small insur

driven a way yesterday with consider
able loss to the enemy. Oris
Owiiiir tn a lack of punctuation and
economy of cable tolls General Otis'
cable is not very clear in some parts,
particularity in relcreneo to the island
A careful study of the dispatch on
tdat point indicates that General Otis
means to says four representative in
habitants of the island of Negros have
come to Manila, having been sent by
t.eneral Milier to confer with General
Otis regarding the extension of Ameri
cans to that island.
Neros is tho fourth island of the
grout) in importance. It lies at its
nearest point about ten miles from the
island of Pa nay and General Miller's
forces must have been in sight of
Negros during the weeks preceding
the capture of Iloilo. Just east of
Negros, separated by a very narrow
strait, is the island of Cebu, which it
is also a part of General Otis' intention
to occupv. From the dispatch it is
gathered that neither at that point or
at Negros is there likely to bo a very

An opportunity will be given for

Several directors have suggested
that it would bo an excellent idea for
members of the school boards to meet
and discuss important matters con
nected with their work, hence this
experiment. Farmers can get away
about as well in February as any
month in the year. We want as many
districts represented as possible.
It would be perfectly legitimate and
proper for the 6chool district to pay
the actual expense of any who take

Fresh Outbreak of Incendiarism Is
Followed By Fighting.

a Terror to Thousand of liiintliilMut
MANILA, Feb. 23. 7 30a. m. There
was an outbreak of incendiarism, ac
companied by lighting, in Manila hint
evening. The casualties were few, but
the property loss is enormous.
0:.'50 a. m. Immense damage ha-,
been done by fires, which are believed
to have been started by insurgents last
night. Tho tire department has ex
perienced great difficulty in lighting
the Humes owing to defective ap
paratus. It is reported that the
natives have damaged the apparatus.
There was some fighting in the
streets during the night, but the
Americans quickly quelled thoupis
ing. A number of insurgents were
killed and several Muerican soldiers
were wounded. A large market place
was among tho fust to burn nnd from
51 M) to t Id residences and bti-iuet-s
houses were destroyed. Fires weie
started at several points simul
taneously and spreading witn great
rapidity resisted all elTori to control
them. Hundreds of homeless natives
are huddled in the streets, making pa
trol duty of the Americans difficult.
The night was one of terror to
thousands of tho inhabitants of Ma
nila, the rebels making geol their
threats of buining acres of Manila.
One officer was wounded. At: K o'clock
an incendiary lire occurred in a block
of brick buildings occupied by Chinese
0:1 Calle le E-ic street. A still breeze
was blowing and the inflammability of
tho structures caused the blaze to bo
i spread with alarming rapidity. The
city lire department was hopelessly in
competent, and the English volunteer
brigade from Santa Mesa was sum
moned and with a modern euyine
pumping adequate streams from the
canal succeeded, after four hours
work, in getting the blaze under con
trol. Hundreds ltendered Homeless.
Meantime the entire block and tbe
g renter part of two others across the
street were completely gutted. Hun
dreds of inhabitants were rendered
homeless. Chinese and natives "lined
the adjacent streets while hundreds
more, fearing a general conflagration,
removed their furniture and other
portablo goods in every diiection,
within a radius of a quarter of a mile
when the alarm was first given. Gen
eral Hughes personally superintended
the police arrangements. The whole
city was thoroughly patrolled and
guards were doubled. Every avail
able man was dispatched to the region
of the fire.
Impediments were placed in the way
of the firemen and the hose was cut
live different times. This resulted in
all the natives being driven off the
streets, those in the immediate vicin
ity of the blaze being corralled in
vacant lots and guarded until the ex
citement was over. In many instances
the natives were insolent and paid no
regard to the orders given them and
the soldiers were compelled to use
harsh measures. The butts of their
rities and their bayonets were freely
