President McKinley has been advised.
THOMASVILLE , Ga. , March 18.
The president has received official ad
vices from Washington saying that
dispatches from Manila showed a very
favorable situation for the American
HONG KONG , March IS' . The fol
lowing eeneral view of the situation
is from a correspondent of the Asso
ciated Press at Manila and has evi
dently not been subjected to censor
ship. The most remarkable featurs
of the situation is the inability of the
Americans and residents to estimate
tnj numbers , resources and plans of
the Filipinos. Prominent generals
think that two or three disastrous bat
tles will 'break their spirit and make
them sue for peace. A majority of the
JSngilsh and other residents are of the
opinion that tlie extermination of the
Tagalos is the only guaranty of peace ,
that they can easily be whipped if
they give battle , but that they will
dodge a meeting with the
forces. Some people think that they
will risk battles at Malabon and Par-
anqua , where they are strongly en
trenched , and if they are defeated
they will resume bushwhacking as
long as any of them are left.
"United States Consul Williams
says : "I don't expect to live to see
the end of the war. "
The rebels shift so much that it is
impossible to estimate their numbers.
The correspondent questioned sev
eral generals as to the number of the
rebels and the replies ranged from 20-
000 to 100,000. The estimates of the
quantity o. arms possessed by the reb
els are equally uncertain. The best
authorities say 30,000. Large sections
of the armed natives are ignorant of
the use of their weapons.
The country beyond the American
lines is rice fields , cane and brush. The
rebels are familiar Avith every inch of
it and it affords fine hiding places. The
residents say the Tagalos are unani
mously rebels , and they predict the
Americans will be resisted at Mindoro
and Mindanao and that they will be
obliged to subdue them.
The extent of the support which the
other Luzon tribes are giving Aguin
aldo is a mystery. It is known that sev
eral regiments were under arms but
the majority of them are supposed to
be jealous of the Tagalos , who are re
ported to be treating the other tribes
in the fashion of the Spaniards , domi
nating the island and holding all the
Reports from the rebels are to the ef
fect that the recent tactics of the Amer
icans in retiring to their established
lines after pursuing makes the rebels
r think they are winning victories.
Their character is so deceptive that
the residents of Manila are ignorant as
to whether servants sympathize with
the rebels or not. It is known that a
rebel organization exists in the city
and the evidence is growing that there
is a wide-spread plot to assassinate the
Americans , the signal being the com-
mencemnt of hostilities. The servants
were instructed to kill their employers ,
but they were terrorized by the ven
geance dealt out to offenders and they
weakened. Every Tagalo would have
cut his employer's throat if he dared ,
or at least this is a current saying.
The faithlessness of the natives is
illlnstrated by the action of the com
missioners who come here to offer the
allegiance of the island of Negros. It
is now known that they were in friend
ly communication with Aguinaldo
. while here.
The rebels have been resupplied with
ammunition and smokeless powder.
Nearly every house here displays a
foreign flag for protection whether it
is entitled to it or not. All flags ex
cept the Spanifih flag , are seen. From
the native huts hang white towels or
shirts. The natives working in the
fields plant a white flag on a bamboo ,
as a protection against being mistak
en for active rebels. Every hut between
the city and the American line is a heap
of ashes.
Holocaust in a. > "c iv York Hotel.
NEW YORK , March 18. Flames
which originated from the igniting of a
lace curtain burst forth from the second
end floor windows of the Windsor hotel
at Forty-seventh street and Fifth ave
nue shortly after 3 o'clock yesterday
afternoon , just as the St. Patrick's day
parade was passing the building , and
in a few moments they had leaped up
to the roof and enveloped the entire
i/ Fifth avenue and Forty-seventh street
fronts of the hotel.
Ten minutes later the flames were
roaring through the interior of the ho

ways and elevators was cut off. There
was the wildest scene of excitement
within and without the building. A
complete list of dead will not be known
until the debris is searched , but prob
ably fifteen lost their lives and there is
a long list of injured.

The Queen Rccont of Spain Affixes Her

MADRID , March 18. The queen regent -

The signed treaty of peace will be-
forwarded to the French ambassador
at Washington , M. Jules Cambon , for
exchange with the one signed by Pres
ident McKinley. No decree on the
subject will be published in the Official
WASHINGTON. March 18 In the
absence of any direct diplomatic com
munication between the United States
and Spain , Secretary Hay expects to
receive his first formal notice of the
ratincation of the peace treaty by the
queen regent through the medium o
the French embassy here.
The next step must be taken by
Spain ; that is , it must name its special
envoy and noti'y the United States
government of t e probable date upon
which he will present himself in
Washington with the exchange copy
of the treaty o. . peace. Although in
most instances little more than a
perfunctory ceremony , in the case of
tne exchange of ratifications of this
treaty the details wM be of more than
ordinary interest , for the occasion will
be historical.
The draft of the treaty of peace be
tween Spain and the United btates
was signed in Paris on December 10 ,
1898. It was approved by the United
States senate by a vote of 57 to 27 on
j-'ebruary G and was signed by the
president on February 10.
Forming : > Mosquito Fleet.
WASHINGTON , D. C. , March 18.
-ne navy department is taking steps
toward the formation of a mosquito
fleet for the Philippines. The condi
tions now prevailing in Luzon indicate
that for a long time it will be neces
sary to maintain a strict police of the
coast and inland waters. For the in
land work , especially , the government
will need some very ligut draft coats.
For this work the big ocean tugs that
formed the mosquito fleet that oper
ated around Cuba during the blockade
and of which the government has a
number , are now being looked over
with a view to just this service. Sone
of them are on the Pacific coast.
The department has figured out a
coasting voyage that will take them
up the Alaskan coast , coaling at Sitka ,
Unalaska , Cook's inlet , and so down
through the Aleutian islands to Hake-
dota , the northern point of Japan.
Thence they can make the run across
the.China sea down to Hong Kong and
thence to the Philippines. It will be
about a two months' voyage , but one
that can be made safsly. Spain had
a large fleet of the small gunboats and
torpedo gunboats , admirably suited
for this work in the Philippines , but
has recently sold thirteen of them at
Hong Kong. It is possible some of
these vessels may be repurchased by
the government in case they are in
good condition ana can be had for a
reasonable sum. The tugs destineu for
Philippine service will be armed with
an abundance of machine guns and
with heavier rapid-fire guns up to G
or 12 Dounders.

THOMASVILLE , Ga. , March 18.

shine and delightful atmosphere or a
