the United States.
It in expi cU d that tho military force
in C'uha can l; greatly reduced in tho
near future, po that while General
Wood, by commanding tho troops re

there will bo ho little left of tho mili

Manila, Dec. 7. 10:30 p.m. There
has been a mutiny of native police in
one of tho towns of tho island of Ne-
An American officer was killed. No
particulars b've yet been received.
The expectation of catching Aguin-
aldo in the north has been practically
abandoned and the probability now is
that he will turn southward, if ho is
not already there, with bis destina
tion Cavito province, his hopt, where
the insurrection began and where it
etill has its greatest strength.
The Filipino soldiers in that pro
vince havo recently been showing in
creased enthusiasm and boldness and
captured insurgents say that Aguin-
aldo is coming to join them with a
large army. The same belief prevails
among the natives at Manila and else
where that Aguinaldo intends to make
his headquarters in Cavite province
There are 3,00H insurgents before
Imus and Bacoor. keeping the Ameri
cans sleeping on their arms and
niehtlv awiting attack. The Fili
pinos have several cannon. The first
mayor of Imus, under the American
regime, who ultimately deserted, is
their leader in the assaults and is am
bitious to take the town. Three sol
diets of the Fourth infantry have de
eerted and are now with the enemy.
The American furces in the north
have separaled into many small com
mands and are pursuing bands of Fil-
ioinos. General MiiCArthur is en
gaged in clearing the mountain coun
try west of the Manila-Dagupan rail
road. General Grant is moving from
Angele9 toward Suing with 400 men.
Colonel Bell is sweeping south from
Mangalaran. Thus far the American
commanders have been unable to lo
cate large bodies of insurgents, al
though there were about 500 in San
Clementine, nine miles south of Man
gatarem, early in the week. Colonel
Hood with the Sixteenth regiment and
cavalry and General Lawton with a
force from San Isidro are operating
against General Pilar's army in the
San Mateo valley.
Major Matchelor with a battalion of
the Twenty-fourth infantry is making
a daring expedition. He left Bayam
bong a week ago to march through
Cagayan valley to the north coast of
Luzon, intending to reach Aparri, at
the mouth of Cagayan river, the most
important northern seaport of the is
land. While no large forces are known
to be in his path it may be that he has

of the inhabitants is counted on to
give him help. When he arrives at Ap

Indorses tbe House Measure.
Overstreet and Assistants Who Framed
the Measure Receive Congratulations
on Presenting the BUI Final Vote
Will Probably lie Taken At Close of
Washington, Dec. 6. The repub
lican members of the house of repre
sentatives gave their unanimous ap
proval today to the hi;use financial bill
recently introduced and recommended
its immediate consideration and pas
sage. Tnis was accompusnea at lue
caucus held in the- hall of the bouse
during tho afternoon by the adoption
of the following re-olution:
Besolved, That house roll 1, entitled
A bill to define and fix the standard
of value, to maintain the parity of all
forms of money issued or coined by
the United States and for other pur
poses, be and the same is hereby ap
proved, and its immediate considera
tion by the bouse and passage after
reasonable debate is recommended and
In pursuance of this resolution Over-
street of Indiana, who introduced and
who is in general charge of it, tomor
row will submit a resolution asking
that a special rule be made for the
consideration of this measure.
The terms of this special rule are
practically agreed upon and provide
that the debate will begin next Mon
day with a final vote at the close of
The unanimous approval given to
the bill came after two hours' discus
sion and the adoption of two amend
ments approved by the framers of the
When the meeting began Cannon of
Illinois surrendered the chair to Hep
burn of Iowa in order to present his
views on some modifications he thought
desirable. These related to the na
tional banking features of the bill and
Cannon gave it as his individual opin
ion that this branch of the subject
might ba better modified or omitted.
He distinctly stated, however, that he
supported tbe bill as a whole and
would vote for it, which was further
snown when he voted lor the resolu
tion of approval. Cannon's sugges
tions did not take the form of amend
ments and were not pressed. The
main amendment was proposed by the
framers of the bill to clear up some
ambiguity of the present law. It is to
be a new section, numbered 9, and is
Section 9 That section 10 of an act
approved July 12, 1882, entitled "An
act to enable national banking associa
tions to extend their corporate exis
tence," be and the same is amended so
as to read as follows:
Section 10 That upon a deposit of
bonds as described in sections 6159 and
5160 of the Revised Statutes the as
sociation making the same shill be en
titled to receive from the comptroller
of the currency circulating notes of
different denominations in blank, reg
istered and countersigned as provided
by law, not exceeding the par value of
the United States bjnds 60 transferred
and so delivered and at no time shall
the total amount of such notes issued
to any such association exceed the
amount paid in of its capital siock; nnd
the provision 5171 and 5176 of the Re
vised Statutes are hereby repealed.
Another amendment Is to section 4
of the bill, inserting the word "re
demption" before "fund" to mk more
plain whee redeemed not-s and c r
tificates are to be held.
Warner of Illinois offered an amend
ment relating to that feature known
as the impounding of the greenbacks,
but be was satisfied from explanations
given that the amendment was not
essential and it was withdrawn. Tnere
were some other suggestions and ten
tative amendments, but none of them
were pressed, and the resolution of ap
proval was then unanimously adopted.
Overstreet and his assistants who
framed the bill were warmly congrat
ulated on having been able to secure
such complete unanimity and approval,
which is regarded as giving assurance
that the bill will be passed before the
Crosee and Supe'ior and for several
years was president of the American
Protective association of tbe state.
Sharp Advance In Crude Oil.
Chicago, Dec. 6. Another sharp
advance in crude petroleum was made
by the Standard Oil company today,
the Pennsylvania product being
pushed up 3 cents to $1.64 a barrel and j
Indiana oil 2 cents to $1.11. Alto
gether since the upward movement
began four months ago oil has risen
over 40 cents a barrel. Production is
said to be 20,000 barrels a day below
the shipment. The deficiency is be
ing made up trom the reserve stocks
which the Standard carries, princi
pally in Indiana, while an activity un
equalled in the industry in the direc
tion of searching for new territory pre
vails throughout the country.
Refined oil, which is burned in the
houses of the people, has gone up from
2i to 3i cents, and at today's quotation
was at the highest point in years.
