More Enrouraa-lna: Report.
VICTORIA. B. C, Sept. 17. A letter re
ceived from a thoroughly trustworthy Chi
nese correspondent at Nannlng states that
the rebellion Is entirely at an end. General
Ma, one of the ablest Chinese officers In the
south wss killed.
Though the rebellion, so called. Is at an
erfd, a disquieting feature of the situation
Is that a large quantity of up-to-date rifles
are still imported constantly. The Chinese
complain that they are smuggled over the
Tonkin frontier. The town of Tungb.ua
Hsian, northwest of New Chwang,- Is re
ported to have been occupied by the bri
gand leader, Liu Tang Tsae, and followers.
Making this their headquarters, they are
said to be busily looting all the districts
The Boxers are still active In Chengte
and Increasingly so. The local foreign
officer reports the district to be in great
disorder, several plscea having been at
tacked, others burned down and a number
of Christians and others who have resisted
having been killed. The British and For-
lgn bible society has had one killed In
that district and there are rumors, not yet
confirmed, but believed to be reliable, that
two others hsve suffered the same fate. '
A gentleman who recently visited New
Chwang says the Russians are making all
preparations for retirement from Manchuria
at an early date, and expresses the belief
that they will do so. At the same time he
admits that, they are not likely to give up
some of the places on which they have
pent considerable sums, such as New
Chwang and Tallen bay, nor to retire with'
out some tort of equivalent for what they
supposed they had acquired, nor even then
o make an absolute relinquishment of their
claims upon that country.

LINCOLN, Sept. 17. (Special.) Hon.
Charles O. Whedon last evening gave a
complimentary dinner to a number of old
friends and former associate of Charles
E. Magoon, law officer ot the Insular bu
reau of the War department. Mr. Magoon
delivered an address on Insular affairs and
sfld In part:
The Deonle of the united States have ac

Among the benefits to be derived from
scqjlrlng the Philippines Is the develop
ment of national character. As a nation
we have been selfish. We were content to
point to ourselves as an example and to
hold aloft the torch of liberty. But the
world has grown smaller end the brother
hood of man Is seen more clearly.
n exercising soverelnnty In the Philip
pines the first and paramount duty is to
provide a government which will secure
to the Inhabitants the largest degree of
political freedom consistent with public
peace. This Is a great work, but the peo
ple of the United States are well fitted to
perform It. There are many obstacles to
overcome. It took 100 years and three
wars to bring the government of the union
to Its present excellence the revolution, to
establish its political Independence; the
war of 1812, to establish Its commercial in
dependence, and the civil war, to etabllsh
tne supreme sovereignly or tne federal
The first obstacle, the Insurrection, has
been overcome. Its underlying cause are
little understood. It found Its Inception in
the desire of Agulnaiilo and his followers
to sack Manila and when this scheme was
defeated a new Impetus wss given by rea
son of an effort of the privileged classes to
E reserve the conditions which existed under
panlsh dominion, wlyre land holdings
consisted of large estates worked by
I'nder Spanish system church and slate
were combined and many of the political
powers of the state were exercised by
church officials. There were also office
holders who held their offices by right of
purchase from the crown. These offices
were sold at public auction, were consid
ered perpetual and to pase by descent from
father to son.
Fearing their Interests were In jeopardy,
these 'several classes joined together and
sought to make the Insurrection suffi
ciently formidable to induce the United
States to abandon the Inlands. .
The Insurrection was scarcely organised
when It became evident that the clerical
element ot the alliance would have to be
sacrificed. Thus arose what is now called
the "friar question." The friars must not
be confused with the parish priests. They
were the head men, petty magistrates, tax
gatherers and ortlce holders of every com
ma nlty. Permitted to exercise the com
bined authority of church and state, they
abused their power and devoted It to their
own advantage and enrichment and are
hated for their acts aa Spanish officials.
The Philippine archipelago extends from
the fifth to the nineteenth parallels of
north latitude, a distance about equal to
that between Lincoln and Pittsburg. He
taeen the fifth and tha ninth tha country
Is occupied by the Moros; their religion and
ineaa or government is mat or Mahomet.
From the ninth to the thirteenth it is or

It will be seen from the above that it
Is Impossible for the people of the lslnmls
to anwemble and organise, much less maln
tsln a national government. If an attempt
were made and a convention called for
that purpose not one-lhlrd of the dele
gates could understand any one language,
and the miracle of the "gift of tongues"
would have to be repeated before the con
vention could understand the proposals
submitted for consideration. Who would
arise to reronclle the divergent views,
prejudices, fixed convictions and Inherent
characteristics there assembled? Which
civilisation should give way? That of the
cross, or the crescent, or the dragon? Is
it not manifest that at the end of useless
effort, predestined to failure, the 1'nlted
States or some other established, homogen
ous nation would be obliged to formulate
and establish a government for these
iflands? In short, do then Just what the
I'nlted States has done now.
The policy of the administration was set
forth In the Instructions of the president
to tne Philippine commission, drawn by
Secretary Root and signed bv President
McKlnley. They constitute the magna
charta of the Philippines ano will contest

This work of developing the government,
reviving Industry, promoting commerce,
establishing schools and courts, has been
accomplished by . the exercise of the mili
tary powers of the United Stales. The
army, organised, trained and equipped for
the work of destruction,' was made nil In
strument cf construction; the enginery of

Nervousness is a vague term which rov
ers all of those ailments which result from
a bloodless condition of the nerve centers.
Systemic catarrh Is very frequently the
ceuse of this condition. Mucous mem-
brsne in the body Is slightly deranged by
systemic catarrh. This leads to a complete
demoralization of the digestive organs, and
a bloodless condition of the nerve centers
ensue. Nervousness Is the result; fret
fulness. Irritability, worry, complaining
all of these menial conditions result from
starved nerve centers.
The only cure Is to remove the catarrhal
condition of the mucous membrane.
Peruna Is the remedy that will do this.
