CHAFFEE AND OTHER OFFICERS
DESCRIBE WORK THERE.
THE CAMPAIGN IK SAMAR
As to the Mcros in Mindanao and
Jolo Time. Tact and Patience Will
Be Required to Completely Estab
Hsh United States Autncnty.
"WASHINGTON The annual report
of Majc General Adna R. Chaffee,
just made public, covers the campaign
cf Generl J. K. Smith, in Samar, re
fers to friction, that occurred between
the civil and military authorities re
garding Leyte and discusses the ac
tion of various officers and the "work
of the army is the suppression of re
General Chaffee warmy defends the
officers, and assumes full responsibil
ity for all that ws done under official
orders. He says the various preda
tory Filipino bands are of little mili
tary importance and can in time be
handled by the insular constabulary.
Speaking of the campaign in Samar.
he says he finds nothing in the "writ
ten instructions which was not jus
tified by the conditions there to be
overcome." The formation of concen
tration camps was necessary to sup
press the insurrection in the prov
inces of 3atangas. Laguna and Taya
bas. especially as the civil authorities
in some instances aided the insurrec
tiirsts. He requests the removal of the cen
sure passed publicly upon General Bell
regarding orders, circulars and instruc
tions which he issued while putting
down the insurrection.
An interesting portion of the report
is that relating to the Moras in Min
danao and Jolo. He says it will re
quire time, tact and patience to estab
lish United States authority, over all
the Moro settlements.
"The sooner the sultan of Jolo's ti
tle, actual or assumed, as sovereign
and as sole owner of the land in the
wolo archipelago, is quieted the bet
ter for the situation. Probablv there
is little doubt that a money consider
ation would relieve the situation, and
if this be done laws just but simple
and so plainly stated as to be under
stood by the Moro population could
generally be enforced throu-h the dat
tos upon their followers without much
trouble or frequent resort to force.
It will be impossible for many years
to ignore chiefs, dattos. and to deal
directly with the individual Moros as
is done with civilized. Christian peo
ple. It will, however, be a long step
ahead when the dattos are independ
ent of the sultan and recognize the
United States as the only sovereignty
to which allegiance is due and as the
only authority empowered to enact
laws for the government of the coun
try; that all the inhabitants are equal
before the law. that Christian peo
ple have a right to live. But to ad
vance so far will consume much time
and may result in national counict.
for the modification of present beliefs
will in seme cases require the use of

THE POSTAL SERVICt
Report of the First Assistant Post
'WASHINGTON'. The annual report
of the first assistant ncstmaster gen
eral urges that, in view of the success
of the rural free delivery establishment
and its future necessities, the recom
mendation for S12,Sa3,S00 for that pur
pose is reasonable. The amount is an
increase of a little more than 55,000,
000 over the current fiscal year.
The correct the alleged injustice of
compelling a postmaster to pay port of
his salary for clerk hire. Mr. Wynne
urges legislation authorizing the post
office to make allowances for clerk hire
at third class postofSces when it is sat
isfactorily shown that the postmaster
is unable to transact the pestoffice bus
iness. The advisability of erecting branch
posteffices in cities is endorsed as eco
nomical The establishment and ex
tension of tlje pneumatic tube service
will make it necessary to secure per
manent sites fcr stations in large cities.
An effort has been made to equalize
the salaries of clerks in first and sec
end class offices- by the promotion of
low-salaried but efficient clerks. At
the larger first class offices clerks are
net now working in excess of eight
hours a day, but it is impracticable to
give clerks in smaller offices eight
hours continuous service. An effort is
being made to reduce their hours to a
"A plan is proposed." the report con
tinues, "whereby in the larger cities
sub-carriers shall receive at least :',Q
a month, and in the smaller 525 a
month. Sub-carriers cannot now count
on a filed income. The rural free de
livery system has become a permanent
feature of the service and receipts have
increased and conditions improved
wherever 't has been put in operation.
No deficiency, it is saidt. will be cre
ated by this service. It will be left to
congress to say whether the establish
ment of routes already laid out shall
be hastened and the installation of
routes in course of investigation expe
dited. Additional appropriations must
be made for this purpose.
It is recommended that congress
make provision fcr a leave of absence
with full pay fcr rural carriers not to
exceed fifteen days in a year.
Extension to rural carters of power
to receive and register letters have
proved so acceptable to public bsnefit
that it is proposed to further increase
their usefulness by adding an exten
sion of the money order system to

here in the hope of finding the young

that she would believe it when she saw

! may test the effecaveness or tne riatt
amendment by entering into negotia
. tiens with other countries regarding
' trade relations.
' The position which the American
l srovemment holds in Cuba and not its
relations with the leading foreign na-
tions are such that it is not believed
j other governments would care to
j make any treaty which was not sanc
j ticned by the United States. There is
even some talk that the negotiations
with Cuba might be br.iught to a satis-
factory conclusion should it appear
that the representatives of foreign gov-
' emments at Eavar-a had been in-
! structed not to enter into any negotia-
i tions until a treaty had been conclud-
ed with the United States, but it is
, scarcely expected that such
j tions can be obtained.
It is the desire of this government to
leave the negotiations, should they
fail, in such shape that it will not ap
pear that an attempt had been made to
extort from Cuba more than the
Unired States was willing to give.
It is said that a commercial treaty
will be necessary to establish Cuba on
such a basis that it can fioat its pro-
. . -.. ...
posed loan. With all negotiations
hung up and strained relations exist-
ing between the old and new republics
it is believed that there would be dim-
culty in selling the bonds. At the same
time this government does not wish
, t? appear in the attitude of holding
a club over the Cuban government. It
is therefore probable that in case the
j negotiations fail a statement cf what
was demanded by the Unitfd States
and the reasons wh
ay tne concessions ,
i were asked will be made.
