Internal Revenue Collector Holtz is
after the concessionaires at the expo

ruled that the shows a re subject to a
special tax and the local revenue men
aro appraising the n mount of tax that
it is proper for each to pay. Last
year tho shows escaped the clutches
of the government, but the decision of
last year has been reversed, and all
exhibit'ons charging a special fee will
have to pay the internal revenue tax.
The Greater American Exposition has
already complied with the law. This
tax, however, is not sufficient to cover
separate exhibitions where another
fee is charged the public or admis
sion. In order to escape this tax they
would have to bo under the direct su
pervision of the managers of the ex
position, which is not the case. The
tax will vary from $25 to $100.

According to the Chinese method of
criminal prosecution a man is respon

escape justice by running away from

his immediate family aro held and
punished in liou of the real culprit.
This may seem a strange way of at
tracting the real criminal back to the
scene of his crime, but it has proved
quite successful, because it appeals to
tho religious side of tho man's super
stitious nature. According to their
religion the man who forsakes his par
ents when in peril will find his soul
sailing around through hades without
chart or compass for all eternity. In
view of this, compliance with the law

WASHINGTON. July 19. The stt.
department yesterday received from
the Philippine commission an import
ant dispatch conveying these facts:
By the co-operation of the military,
municipal governments have been es
tablished in seven important towns In
the provinces of Manila and Cavlte.
These are working admirably and one
good effect of them is that consider
able numbers of the insurgents are
constantly deserting and coming In.
some of them with arms. The system
will soon be extended to other towns
which are asking for it. Continued
success In this direction will mean
the beginning of the end. The com
missioners state that the general situ
ation as described in the message of
General Otis, June 2(5, except that a
number of ports in the southern part
of Luzon, in Leyte and other islands
to the south have since been opened
to trade. Dispatches from Dr. Schur
man on his return from his trip
through the southern part of the arch
ipelago were of the same purport. A
disposition to accept American sov
ereignty an'd to welcome our troops
was everywhere manifested.
The report of General Otis of the
26th of June referred to by Commis
sioner Denby in the above dispatch
stated that as a consequence of the
rainy season little Island campaigning
was now possible in Luzon. We oc
cupy, said General Otis, a large por
tion of the Tagalog country. The
lines stretch from Imus on the south
to San Fernando on the north, nearly
sixty miles, and eastward Into the
Lasuna province. The Insurgent
armies have suffered great losses and
are scattered. The only large force
which holds together is about 4,000 in
Tarlac province and northern Pam
panga. There are scattered forces In bands
of fifty and 500 In other parts of
Luzon, Cavite and Batangas provinces.
They could possibly assemble 2,000.
They are demoralized from recent de
feat. The most of the people are ter
rorized by the Insurgent soldiers, but
desire peace and American protection.
They no longer flee from our troops
unless forced by Insurgents, but glad
ly welcome them. There has been no
recent burning of towns. The popula
tion within our lines has become
dense, taking up land cultivation
chiefly. They are kept out of Manila
aa much as possible, as the city popu
lation was becoming too great to be
The only hope of the insurgent
leaders is in aid from the United
States. This In the Influence which
enables them to hold out. Much con
tention prevails among them and no
civil government remains. The trade
with ports not in our possession, the
former source of insurgent revenues,
is now interdicted.
A lilg KiiNhifor Sheep Lands.
OMAHA, July 19. The business of
the Union Pacific land department has
been largely increased within a short
time past and the principal reason
for this augmentation assigned by the
officials of the department of the in
terior forbidding sheepmen permission
to feed their flocks on the Uintah,
Wyoming, forest reserve, which, prior
to this order, had furnished an abun
dance of grazing for the extensive
sheep interests in that section of Wyo
ming. In order to furnish feed for
their flocks now the sheep owners
have of necessity been compelled to
secure suitable range and the lands; In
the region of Summit. Weber, Mor
gan and Rich counties, Utah, and Uin
tah county, Wyoming, controlled by
the Union Pacific land department,
have been strictly in demand.
As to Peace Negotiations.
WASHINGTON, July 19. A cable
from Colonel Denby. a member of the
Philippine commission, was read at
the cabinet meeting yesterday. It
showed a fairly satisfactory state of
affairs, one of the cabinet officers said,
but It did not say that peace negotia
tions with Aguinaldo were in prog
ress. Secretary Hay also had a cable
from Ambassador Choate relative to
the boundary line negotiations, but it
was not encouraging.

MANILA, July 19. Tae natives of

It is reported that there has been
