This statement causes no alarm among
the citizens and many are not con

Omaha dispatch The conference of
physicians of Nebraska City, held in
that town Friday resulted in a seasa

called for the purpose of discussing and
determining the nature of a disease
that has been prevalent there since the

. Dr- Crammer is authority for the j
statement that the investigation show- '
ed that about 200 cases of smallpox
had occurred since August. In each
instance the house where the infected
person lived was marked with a card
proclaiming "Infectious Disease." One
of Dr. Towne s duties will be to see
that these houses are marked "Small
pox" instead. Dr Crummer says the
contanion must necessarily have

' at Nebraska City, but that there is no
cause for alarm, as it is controllable. '
He says "Universal vaccination and

observed that, for last year only one re-
port, that from Howard county, was
filed with the secretary of state, a
when it came ia no one around the
state house knew what to do with. it.
It seems that in recent years no such.
reports have been sent in. This year
the Howard county sheriff sent ia an

Ish soldiers they held prisoners, not
withstanding Agulnaldo's graadHo
quent refusal to do so. This indieates
that the Insurgents are very eoueilia
tdrv ia spite of their defiant talk.
Admiral Dewe'r always beKefed thai
the insurgents were friendly, and cs
peciaHy since ths war ships of oar
fleet hare visited the different ports,
and officers have made tours inland,
incidentally investigating popalar
entinient and judiciously preaching
the gospel of peaceful settlement
everywhere with highly satisfactory
results. A few Influential Filipinos,

vancemeat. are clnmoriag- for indeoen-1

true meaning. Tliey are utterly Ig
norant of the difference between the
name and the reanty.
The agitators here Invariably admit
that they would be unable to stand
without American protection. But,
in spite cf this, they continue their
meaningless outcry for trouble. The
admiral, however, believes this to be
improbable at the present juncture,
though every incident counts. How
ever, everyday that passes without a
conflict means so much gain, because
the friendly feeling is steadily Increas
ing, the incipient roughness is disap
pearing and the agitators are weak
ening. The aewspapers of Manila are doing
particularly valuable work in the sim
ultaneous puhUcation of conclllatory
articles printed in Spanish and In
English. This course is looked upon
as being certain to eliminate the fric
tion which has existed here.
The admiral is greatly interested la

natives prove to be obstreperous per

Germans now have entirely abandoned
their design in the Phffippine islands
though, formerly, he said, the German
attitude here had caused him inde
According to recent information re
ceived here, the Filipino insurgents
are endeavoring to maintain a brave
show for the purpose of securing the
best terms possible from the Ameri
cans. It is the opinion of our admiral
that it tvculd be advisable for the
United States to pay insurgent troops
their arrears of wages. The whole
amount would be a comparatively tri
fling sum. and the payment of the
troops would have a valuable effect
and may save incalculable trouble.
