Onlr 0,000 Fighting Man.
Nkw Youk, July 3. A dispatch to
ilio Now York Herald from Manila,
Juno 37, by way cf Hong Kong, Rays!
Two opposlto views of tho Philip
plno situation nro hold by thoso per
sons who have followed tho American
campaign with elosa attentton.
First, Is tho olllclal military view.
According to this tho situation is now
woll in hand and the campaign has
bcon ns successful ns possible. The
natives aro tlrod of tho Insurrection
and aro moro friendly toward tliu
Americans than toward tho insur
gents. Tho Insurgent army Is made
up almost entirely of brigands, who
can no longer bo held together by
their lenders. Tho war will soon be
over, it is declared, if tho wet season
holds olT. Tho forco of troops on hand
is sufllcicnt for tho emergency. Busi
ness is picking up.
Tho disorganized insurrection, de
prived of its resourcos, is hold to
gether nt present entirely by the hopo
given tho robots through tho nntl
annexation movoinont In tho United
States and tho American papers which
Tho insurgent leaders nro actuated
totely by selfish personal ambitions.
Tho second vlow, which Is hold by
military men in tho Held, and leading
thinkers, is that, as tho ability of our
troops to drlvo tho insurgents at will
has bcon proved, tho suppression of
the Insurrection depends upon the
ability of tho men in authority to
copo with tho situation and not upon
muzzling tho American press.
Tho outlook at present is more
gloomy for a speedy ending of tho
war than over before Tho method of
making raids Into tho country and
then withdrawing, leaving tho friend
ly natives at tho mercy of tho return
ing Insurgents, has tended to alienate
tho population and not materially to
weaken tho insurgents. Tho organi
zation of tho Insurgents is still good,
and their resources arc not greatly
Tho failuro this season to take the
railroads running through tho valley
of tho rlco country above San Kenan
do leaves to tho enemy Immensa re
sources and falls to protect the inter
ests of foreign merchants
With tho prcsaut mcthads tho war
with tho Filipinos on contlnuo indef- '
iultoly. Tho only true method to
pacify tho country Is to garrison n'l
tho Important towns. To do this I
moro than twico tho numbar of troops I
already Hero, including voluntee i,
tiro necessary, with several regiments
of mounted cavalry.
With 4,000 men in tho the hospitals,
4,800 in tho southern iilanls and
10,000 in Manila, Cavito and tho amnll
garrisons, only 5,000 men nro left for ,
active campaigning. This number is
not sutllciout, slnco tho troapi in the
north nro in bail condition, many of
tho soldiers having irritated hearts
by reason of ovor exertion. O.i re
count of the small number of troops)
available, new advancas nro con-'
stautly rcquirod and frequent changes
or tlio exhausted regiments. Tliero Is '
groat waste of tlmo and energy of the
men by long marches to tho front.
Tho non-combatants are moro '
friendly toward tho insurgents than
toward tho Amor! cans on account
mainly, of tho potty tyranny of tho
soldtors. The isolated insurgent out
rages aro only a repetition of similar
Isolated acts of our own in on.
A pioneer and engineer corpi is
much needed for tho building of good
roads. Nothing on this lino has been
dono, but it is indispensable for the
pacification of tho country. A gov
ernment freo from the vexations of
Spanish taxation should long ago have
Tho buslnoss stagnation, It is hold,
will continue until all tho important
ports of Luzon aro occupied by small
garrisons. Local bankors believe that
currency is leaving tho islands. Tho
estimated reduction Is from 23,0O3,
000 to 815,000,000.

Ni:w Youk, July 3. Iu an iutorvlew
ca tho Phlllppltu situation, Postmaster-General
Charles Emory Smith
said: "Tho situation in tho Philip
pines is tho most important and ab
sorbing public question Just at pres
ent. I am well uwaro that thoro is
sonio restlessness on tho matter, and
in soma quarters no little impatience.
There is n notion that tho administra
tion should havo called for and sent
forward moro troops. Hut thoso
who mako this criticism do not
know that tho administration has
rccriittod nearly 2,000 men a week
right along since Congress adjourned
March 4. They do not know that
with these recruits and with tho re
enlistments a force of nearly 10,000
men has been raised within that time.
Thoy do not know that tho army bill
which passed March 'I practically com
pelled tho reorganization of a new
army nearly n fourth as largo as that
which was raised for tho Spanish war.
Thoy do not know that undar tho law
authorizing tho creation of tho army
for tho Spanish war all tho regulars
above 27,000, as woll as all tho volun

"On tho ratification of peaco with

that is fl.1,003 men. Ho began that
"About 40,(103 men havo now been
added to tho force and of tho recruits
fully 70 per cent wero in tho scrvlco
during tho Spanish war. This fact
signifies two things. First, that thoso
who served had no terrors from what
they had gono through aud wero
ready to servo ngaln. Second, that
tho forco thus recruited was inured to'
tho servlco and ablo to stand Its hard
ships. "it might havo been posslblo to call

tho beginning of tho Spanish war; but
even It this had been dono troops
could not netually havo been sont to
tho Philippines faster than thay havo

"Within two weeks .".0J3 additional

closa of the rainy season, there will
