Manila, April "0. H:lo p. m.
While it is the general expectation
among Ani'ricnns that tin Filipino
emissaries will return with revised
proposals from Ceneral .A n tonio I,una,
Major General (Hm is not letting this
prospect int'.ufere with his prepara
tions for pushing the war. Yesterday
lie ordered Major General L:iwton to
return to Angat, a few miles north
west of Nor.agaray, but not to ad
vance aggressively while tho negotia
tions are pending. General MacAr
thur is apparently acting on tho same
policy, but lio is repairing bridges
anil strengthening the lines of his
force, which is stretched out with a
four-mile fiont and within a quarter
of a mile of tho enemy.
The possibilities of peace nre grati
fying to a great majority of the army,
which has regarded tho war as an un
pleasant duty that must be performed
according to American traditions.
Manila is cheerful over tho prospect
of a return to normal life, though
there are skeptics who remark that a
truce would enable the insurgents to
rest until the rainy season, upon
which they have been depending ns
an important aid.
The prisoners report that thero aro
7o,000 refugees north of San Fernando.
This, is not impossible, considering
the thiculy populated region which
the Americans have cleared. It
seems also that smallpox is spreading
Tho so-called Filipino congress will
meet at San Fernando tomorrow.
I'ligiit of the Natives.
When Dean C. Worcester of the
United Slates Philippines commission,
who accompanied the Filipino emis
saries Irom Calumpit, said to Colonel
Manuel Arguclles that tho Americans
w-ore under no obligations to refrain
from fighting, the Filipino ollieer
s-.id: "Would you light while we are
discussing terms of poaccy"
Mr. Worcester responded with the
suggestion that an armistice would
give the Filipino leaders time ti
"My God, where would we escape
to?" the Filipino exclaimed, referring
in this to tho menacing hostile tribes
behind tho Filipino line.
Colonel Arguelles told tho corres
pondent of the Associated Press that
he was much disappointed in the re
Miits of his mission. He said also that
Aguinaldo expected Calumpit to te a
cemetery for the American army.
Lieutenant Colonel Wallace of the
Montana regiment, Major Adams and
Major Shields, who slept on Friday
night in General Luna's camp, where
they weLit to inform the Filipinos that,
their envoys would return in safety,
found the Filipino commander cordial,
tho Filipino troops removintr their
hats as the Americans passed.
The Filipinos complained to them
that the Americans used explosive
bullets, which is not the fact. The
Americans officers retorted that the
copper shells used by tho Filipinos
are worse than explosive bullets.
(J. neral Luna said ho regretted being
ool igod to kill Amercans, but that was
his business. General Wheaton en
tertained Colonel Arguelles and Lieu
tenant Jose lierr.nl and ptovMe i them
with horses to return to their ci-mp.
Nil Wiini From lieiit ml 0:i.
Wasiiixctos', April r.O Nut a line
of official news from Manila was re
eeied today by either the war or the
navy departments. Since the opening
of the campaign against tho insurgents
scarcely a day has passed without dis
patches from General O'is antl the
absence of advices today is taken by
the war ot'icials to mean that, pending
further negotiations on the part of the
Filipinos for peace, tlu situation is
precisely as General Otis reported it
II. is known that riippho ate being
pushed forward from Manila to the
troops at the front in order that they
may be prepared for an advance move
ment should sueh action become neces
sary. There has been no suspension of
hostilities, but it is regarded likely
that General Otis, while not losing
any of the advantage he has gained,
will afford the Filipinos reasonable
time to consider the situation and
terms as he presented them to the en
voys ot General Luna. It is expected
confidently by the otlicia's of the war
department that the way to peace now
being paved, further negotiations will
be opened by the insurgents.
It is believed to bo probahla that
the next important uews received from
Manila will be that tho Filipinos have
m3de additional overtuies toward a
conclusion of hostilities.
The war department has been noti
fied of the arrival at San Francisco
from Manila of the transports Grant
and Sherman. The oflieinls are greatly
gratifi' d at the rapid run of the Sher
man. It made the trip of more than
7,000 miles in twentv-six days.
