MANILA. April 3. The American
troops under General MacArthur are
still resting nt Mnlolos , where every
thing has boon quiet today. Hostili
ties elsewhere , so far as officially re
ported , have been limited dtirlnc tha
last twenty-four hours to an occasional
exchange of shots between the Insurg
ents and the troops forming the Unas
of General Lawton and General Hall ,
extending from the water works to La
Lonla. But the shooting has boon just
active enough to make the lives of the
soldiers a burden and to compel the
officers to sleep in trenches , clothed
and in readiness to repel possible ot-
Most of the Americans are becom
ing convinced that the backbone of the
Insurgent opposition is broken. There
are numerous rumors pointing to nn
early collapse of the Insurrection. Ono
of these is that General Plo del Pllar.
the best fighter among the Filipino of-
' fleers , will desert Agulnaldo and clvo
his support to the Americans.
The Spaniards , reasoning from their
experience with the natives , refuse to
believe the rebellion is anywhere near
> t down. They declare that the Fil
ipinos will not take their defeat at
Maloloa with the loss of tha city and
tlie removal of their so-called covorn-
tnont seriously to heart. On the con
trary , the Spaniards predict that the
insursrentfl will hover near the Amer
ican llnee , botherlnK them as much as
possible , and when attacked In force ,
dissolve , only to reappear at other
points. This sort of tactics , the Span-
lards say , will be followed until the
wet season compels the Americans to
he housed in barracks , and then the
Filipinos will return and reoccupy such
towns as the United States troops do
not garrison. With the next dry sea
son a repetition of the present oner-
atlons will begin. Time alone will
show how much there Is in this theory ;
but. as against It. it must bo borne In
mind that the Phllppines never eave
the inhabitants a demonstration of
power comparable in effectiveness to
that Riven them by the United States
A priest and two men , members of
the so-called Filipino congress , who
hid themselves In the woods durins
the fighting which preceded the cap
ture of Malolos. returned there this
morning and declared that 2,000 of the
Filipino soldiers were anxious to tdve
tip flerhtlnK and would do so but for
their officers , who keep them under
arms. '
The country betwpon Malolos and
Caloocan is now full of frlendlles.
( women , children and old people , who
are returning to their homes , carrying
Iwhite flacs. The Americans are try-
ins to caln the confidence of the In
habitants by proving to them that If
they will return and attend to their
I ordinary work , peacefully , no harm
II will befall them. Two hundred and
fifty civilians came back to their homes
I In Malolos last eveninc. Two thousand
women and children , with a sprlnk-
llns of unarmed men. supposed to bo
warriors , came to the outskirts of Mal
olos on the sea sldo of the cltv and
, afterward sneaked away , carrying all
the sroods they could.
There has been no little Rood na-
tured rivalry as to which regiment
the First Montana or the Twentieth
Kansas Is entitled to the honor of
having raised ite flag first in Malolos.
Colonel Funston and twenty men ot
Company E. Kansas volunteers , claim
the distinction , on the ground , as al
ready cabled , of having entered the
town"nt double aulek and rais ° d the
company's finer , but the first flag to h"
recnarnlzfd nulrlally was that of Com
pany G of the Montana Infantry.

has been decided that Rear Admiral
Howlson's flagship , the Chicago , will
proceed to the South Atlantic via the
Mediterranean and Red seas and thence
around Cape of Good Hope , touching
at all the principal ports on the West
African coast. The department con
siders It a good thing to make a dis
play of an American warship occa
sionally at the unfrequented ports of
the "world , and the cruiser Chicago
will certainly create a deep impression.

Currency for Cubans.
WASHINGTON , April 3. It was re
ported tonight by two members of the
cabinet that no consideration will bo
paid to any proposition for money for
the Cuban army outside the $3.000 000
und now awaiting their acceptance
and furthermore it is hinted that If too
much trouble and deliberate delay oc
cur preliminary to that amount being
turned over to the Cubans the
$3,000,000 may bo withdrawn and no
nayment of any sort be made by this
covernrneut on account of the Cuban
troops. No proposition for an addi
tional sum will be considered In anv
form and the statement to that affect
by Secretary Hay In the unninnlnl

stated by cabinet ofllclals that no at

authorizing a Cuban loan.

been working on the plan to establish
a $20,000,000 bond issue to be paid for

and made myself known to him. I
explained my views of the situation to
him. If the three million oayment is
forced on the army it will create future
dissatisfaction and disloyalty , while a
bonded debt , paid out of tie Cuban
revenues , would solve the Cuban prob
lem. "
"How about $20,000,000 ? ' he was
asked. "Who is back of It , and where
is it ? "
Mr. Coon gave no satisfactory answer
to this Question.

MANILA , April l. 'ihe American
Hag was raised over Malolos at 10
o'clock yesterday. The Kansas regi
ment and the Montana regiment , on
entering the city , found it deserted. ,
the presldencla burning and the reb
els retreating towards the mountains
in a state of terror. It Is believed they

The American loss was small.
It Is evident that the rebels for uomo
time past have abandoned all hope of
holding their capital , for the Ameri
cans found there evidences of elabor
ate preparations for evacuation. On the
railroad the rahs and ties for about u
mile had been torn up and urobably
thrown into the river. 1'ho prisoners
captured were a few Chinamen. They
said Aeulnaldo loft Malolos on Wed
The principal citizens of 'Malolos ,
tholr families nntl goods have been
taken into the country over the rail
road , while others have departed on
foot , carrying their possessions and
driving their cattle and other anlmala
before thorn.
Most of the rebel forces wcro re
moved to positions east of the rail
road , leaving only some small 'bands '
in the etroug trenches in front of Ma-
General MacArthur started for the
rebel capital at 7 o'clock In the morn
ing with two rapid firing guns flanking
the track , two guns of the Utah bat
tery on the right and two guns of the
Sixth artillery on the left of the raa-
ids , firing continuously.
The Kansas and Montana regiments
moved upon Malolos and the 'Nebras '
ka and Pennsylvania regiments and
the Third artillery kept along the
right of the railroad.
The only effective stand made by the
ro'bels was at a bamboo anil earth
work , half a mile from Malolos , and on
the right , where the Nebraska regi
ment , as was the case yesterday , had
the hardest work and suffered the
greatest loss.
Colonel Funston , always at the
front , was the first man In Malolos
followed by a group of dashing Kans
ana.The Filipino flag , which was flying
from the center of the town , was
hauled down by some of the Montana
regiment , who triumphantly raised
their own above it.
From the column of smoke arising
from the city It seemed as if the whole
place was ablaze. It turned out , however -
over , that only the presldencla , or
government 'building ' , and a few of the
smaller buildings had been set on flro
by the rebels before they evacuated
the place.
From the reports gathered by the
American officers , from prisoners and
others , it is believed that the rebel
army Is constantly losing strength on
account of desertions , and that al
though the enclny may make one or
two moro stands , the forces of Agul-
naldo will disintegrate , In perhaps a
month , to a few hundreds , who may
continue waging guerrilla warfare In
the mountains.
The American troops behaved splen
didly. They advanced steadily against
successive lines of trenches , through
woods and jungles and suffering from
frlehtful heat.
In addition me American voaun-
teere were handicapped in fighting by
the fact that their Springfield rifles
are of shorter range than the Mauser
rifles in the hands of the rebels. Under
those circumstances the steady ad
vance of our troops is a renllv rc-
narkablo achievement.
The victorious American army Is
feasting on cocoanuts and bananas
and enjoying a well earned rest , while
the hospital train Is carrying the
wounded back to Manila.

During the niottltt of Mnrrli ,
WASHINGTON , April 1. So far
lurlnir thn month or Mnrch 13.000
troops have been landed la the Unit
ed States from Cubn. This worlc has
equlrcd ospcclal expeditionary inoaa-
ircB on the part ot the quarantine ser
vice , but BO fur all the rcuulromeiua
made upon the service 1mvo bocu uiot.
The wnr department has exorcised un-
UHiial haste because of the doslro to
ivold the necessity of compliance with
the order of the treasury department
requiring the disinfection of all the
baggage of returning troops and tholr
equipment prior to entry. This has
been successfully accomplished by the
co-operation of the Marine hospital
service and the quartermaster general's
ofllco without an exception.
The arrival of transports at southern
worts has been so arranged as to n r-
mlt the disinfection of bagKngo with
out causing undue detention of troops.
Transports carrying troops were- sent
in accordance with this arrancemont
to the quarantine stations at Dry Tor-
tugas and at 'Blackboard ' Island and to
the Florida ututn quarantine station
at Tampa and the city quarantine sta
tion at Savannah , Ga. Marino hospi
tal surgeons wore sent to all Umse
points to expedite the business , but
Colonel Bellinger , quartermaster of
the war department , Is in ccneral
charge of the work. The marine hos
pital service also has furnished addi
tional disinfecting machinery for the
work. All told about 1,000 tons of bag
gage has been disinfected during the
month and no 'baggage was allowed to
evade that duty , although some efforts
were made In that irlroctlon.
A leport has been received at Iho
war department from Major Penrosp
of the Utah rciilmont , now a brlcado
surgeon at Manila. It Is dated Febru
ary 15 , but contains no information re
garding the fighting that had been goIng -

lated mainly to the sickness and health
conditions of the brigade. Thcye. wcro
some malaria and some smallpox cas

been engaged In any fighting , as noia-
ing was said about casualties. This

from Paslg to Manila bay. Surgeon
Penrose said their meals were cooked

WASHINGTON , April 1. A copy of
the Japanese Times of February 12 ,
published at Toklo , has been received
here. It contains an Interview with
nn American named Crocker , who
may bo Prof. Crocker of Columbia col
lege , who was an eye-witness of the
first two days' lighting about Manila ,
which began February G.
Ho indicates that the Filipinos la
the city undoubtedly contemplated
rising en masse , but failed to carry
out the plan of cooperation with those
in arms outside of the city.
He says if the rebels had destroyed
the water supply of the city It would
have entailed great hardship upon the
Americans , and attributes their fail
ure to tlo so to their regard for the
well-being of the Filipinos in the city.
"During the fighting , " says Mr.
Crocker , "Agulnaldo , who Is supposed
to be at Malolos , communicated with
Dewey. Ho sent him a message , In
iwhich ho eald , 'For God's sake , stoi :
the firing , ' and disclaiming all respon
sibility In connection with the start
ing of the trouble. Dewey , however ,
refused compliance , and I think Agui-
naldo is now accepting the situation
"There was some talk of Agulnaldr
resigning and washing his hands of
the whole affair , but I do not think
he will do so. The opinion is that
it was not Agulnaldo who precipitated
this thing , but his followers whom
ho could not control. "
Mr. Crocker left Manila while the
fighting was still In progress and Ills
estimates of the casualties are very
wild. Ho says there were from 5,000
to 10,000 Filipinos killed and wounded ,
and tells of the torrlllc destruction
wrought by the shells from our war
ships. The shells from the Monad-
nock , ho says , killed "twenty , thirty ,
and sometimes fifty natives at a time. "

WASHINGTON , April 1. It Is said
at the War department that General
Otis will not make a campaign during
the rainy season , nor Is it bolinvnd
that ho will at present chase the Fil

dent that the fight that was In Agul
naldo has been whipped out of him
and It Is believed ho cannot hold the
Filipino army together much longer.
If Otis advises the War deoartmnnt
will approve a cessation of active hos

It with the same satisfactory results.

I'amtongor Trnfllc Manager MoCormlcU
( lee * to the fioutliurn Tuolflc. '
E. O. McCormlck , passenger traffic
manager of the Cleveland , Cinclnattl ,
Chicago and St. Louis Tallroad , Big
Four , has resigned from that company
to accept , a similar position with the
Southern Pacific company , with head
quarters at San Francisco. This In
formation came last night In the form
of a telegram to C. H. Mitchell , city
passenger agent of the Big Four la
Chicago , as follows :
"E. O. McCormlck has resigned to
take service with the Southern Pacific-
railway as passenger traffic manager ,
headquarters at Ban Francisco. Presi
dent Ingalls has appointed mo general
passenger and ticket agent , in full
charge of the passenger department
Those changes effective about May 1.
The news was a complete surprise to
local railroad men , as no rumor of a
change in the traffic department of
either road had been circulated. It la
believed that the approaching en
trance of tljo Santa Fo Into San Fran
cisco and consequent competition ,
something the Southern Pacific has not
yet had to face on traffic Into that
city , Is the cause of the change. Mr.
McCormlck Is a progrosslvo passenger
man and is considered ono of the best
In the business. Ho was formerly gen
eral passenger agent of the Motion , and
subsequently of the Cincinnati , Ham
ilton and Dayton , before going with
the Big Four , In 1893. W. J. Lynch ,
who succeeds him , has grown up with
the system , rising from stenographer
In the office of the passenger agent at
the old Boo Line at Cleveland In 1888.
The position of passenger traffic manager -
ager Is created on the Southern Pa
cific , Samuel Goodman being general
passenger agent and J. C. Stubbs , third
vice-president , In charge of the traf
fic department. Chicago Tribune.
" Doe Gully Curves.
About half way between Cumberland
and Martlnsburg , on the Second Divi
sion of the Baltimore and Ohio rail
road , Is a picturesque spot known as
Doe Gully. There Is quite a little hill
at this point that the road goes
through , and the approaches to thla
tunnel Include several reverse curves.
The company has been engaged for the
past two months In removing these
curves and reducing the grades. The
chief engineer eays that the improve
ment will do away with ono of the
moat objectionable pieces of track on
the Second Division slnco Savon
Curves wore eliminated , and will re
move four reverse curves. It will not
only make a much better riding track
for fast trains , but materially assist
the west-bound freights In climbing
this grade.
Behavior is a mirror in which every
one displays his imago.
