number of factions In the islands. In this
particular cas Uie heavy mortality among
the Moros engaged would probably be ex
plained by ttielr method of fighting'. It
would have been impossible to have In
flicted the same loss on ths northern Fili
pinos. The latter have a way of disap
pearing before ths troops In the jungles
and conducting guerilla warfare. Hut the
Moros on the appearance of an enemy
ound the alarm and gather everybody In
side their forts, where they will tight to
the end. Probably the loss in this case
was caused by the fire of the artillery.
No, I have not the least fear that this
movement will extend to the other Islands,
and 1 think the heavy blow struck the
Moros will have a strongly deterrent effect

panle I. K, L and M of the Twentieth In
fantry had been stationed at Jolo, but are
understood to have been relieved by a bat
talion of the Sixth infantry, commanded
by Colonel Duncan in January. Colonel
Duncan was the senior officer on the field
save Major General Wood and Brigadier
General Bliss. Assuming that the organi
sations were up to their normal strength,
there were about 490 soldiers in the action
besides the naval contingent, the strength
of which Is so far unknown. It is be
lieved, however, that owing to the sick
list and other causes there were probably
not more than 4o0 of the military engaged.

There ie, however, near the city of Jolo,
distance only five miles, a mountain an
swering closely, save for the crater, the
description of that In the official dispatch.
This mountain was controlled by two
dattos Calbl and Joaklnlne the latter one
of the chieftains who signed the famous
Bates treaty. The mountain Is very steep
and at Its apex la a Moro fortress which
had never been taken by white troops.
Lieutenant General Bates, chief of staff,
who had active service In the southern
Islands of the Philippine archipelago and
Is as well acquainted with the Jolo coun
try probably as any officer here, haa no
fear that this last trouble will extend
throughout the group. In the first place,
he says, there is no homoegonlty among
these Island troops; strong jealousies exist
and it has been Impossible for them to co
operate with the whites. It Is believed
that the Moros attacked were really a aet
of robbers and that the action was un
doubtedly precipitated by General Wood's
determination to exterminate them at any
cost if they could not otherwise be sub
dued. Another Aeuoant.

' The movement of the gunboats whloli
had been detailed from the Astatic fleet
for duty in the southern islands of tho
Philippine archipelago are reported only
to the commander In chief of the Asiatic j
ststlon at Manila, and .the navy depart
ment consequently Is without information
as to the whereabouts of the ships jint'l
a considerable time has elapsed. However,
the fact that Ensign 11. 8. Cooke, jr.. Is
reported to have been wounded, establishes
the further fact that the gunboat Fam-
panga, a small craft of about 200 tons,
was at Jolo, for this young officer Is com
mander of tho vessel. Cooke is a native
of the District of Columbia, but waa ap
pointed to the navy from New York, where
his father lives. He has been on duly

Some of the army officers here who huve
served In the Jolo group say that Mount
Dajo. the scene of the action, is located
about fourteen miles from Jolo, the capital
of the Island. Moro Coto is on the very top

. Really Thii Flabts.
The Sixth Infantry, which seems lo have
orne the brunt of the fighting, was from
r'ort I-eavenworth and has been in the
Philippines about a year. The officers of
the general staff fully acquainted with the
habits of the Moros say they have not the
slightest fear that the Moros will try to
retaliate for their crushing defeat.
These officers judge from the dispatches
from Manila that there were really two
actions, the first probably a surprise and
serving merely to lot-ate the position and
establish the strength of the Moro defend
ers. This having been done, the second
day seems to have been occupid In hoist
ing the artillery and ammunition supplies
to positions from which to operate upon
the Moro fortress within the crater, and
lha second action, fought under the con
ditions described, on the slope of the moun
tain at an agle of So degrees, undoubtedly
broke the Moro strength in that locality for
an Indefinite time.

SAN FRANCISCO. March .-Major Gen
eral Corbln, recently In command of the
division of the Philippines, read with much
interest the Associated Press news of the
fight on the Island of Jolo. He said:
This encounter has no bearing on the
Philippine situation. The Moros are reli
gious fanatics and are not amenable .to
the Influence of other peoples. They owe
no allegiance except -o their Moham
medan faith and are liable to cause trouble
at any time. Their acts have no more
reunion to the conduct of the Filipinos
than the Apache outbreaks in former days
In Arizona with the situation In other states
No man can tell what tho Moros are
going to do. They are Just as llkelv to
tight among themselves as to attack ot tiers.
When an Individual Moro feels what he
culls an Inspiration he runs amuck and
kllh! all he can. This condition J"as al
ways existed and. presumably, aivays will
until the race becomes extinct. However,
we are now educating many of their chil
dren and from this enlightened generation
there renv soon come a new and better
typo of Moro.
1 do not anticipate that this fatal en
counter will ititMrrtitily change the situa
tion. Certainly, il will not affect the Fili
pinos, who aie- loyal and satisfied with the
conditions surrounding them.
Major General Corbln started for the
east at S o'clock- tonight over the Santa
Fe rnute. He will stop over for a day ot
two to view the grand canyon of Arizona.

WASHINGTON. March A resolution
and a bill designed tn cure the defects
President Roosevelt pointed out in the
Tillman resolution for the Investigation by
the Interstate Commerce commission of
railroad discriminations unri monopolies
were introduced todny In the house, the
resolution by i Representative Townrend of
Michigan and the bill by Representative
Gillespie of Texas. Mr. Townsen 1's resolu
tion provides en appropriation of I50.iK0 to
carry on the Investigation and the Gillespie
bill makes an appropriation of Iinn.ono for
the same purpose.
The Townsend resolution provides that
the Interstate Commerce commission shall
have under the TIllman-Glllcspie resolution
all the power to subpoena witnesses, to
compel them to testify and to produce
documentary evidence which It enjoys under
the Interstate commerce act. It also pro
vides that witnesses shall enjoy the same
rights and Immunities In this investiga
tion that they enjoy under the Interstate
commerce act. Similar provisions are
made In the Gillespie bill. I'nder the Gil
lespie bill the Interstate Commerce com
mission Is permitted to avoid the duplica
tion of Investigations' by the adoption of
findings of any other department of the
government which has Investigated any
particular matter coming under the scope
of the Inquiry.
Statement by Mr. t.lllrsple.
In explanation of his bill and In reply to
objections offered by the president to the
Tillman resolution, Mr. Gillespie said to
day: I urn vbid the oresldent slsned the reso
lution and the same has become Ihw. al
though In doing so he sent a message to
congress that will, I fear, defeat the quick
results that otherwise might have been
reached by the commission In the Investiga
tion. His message conveys to mo guuiy
parties a doubt as to Its power to compel
the production of books and papers. Of
rmti-ao tliev will take advantage of this
doubt and urge it iigainst every step the
commission may tuke.
Of the president's objection that If the
Investigations were carried on to the full
extent of its provisions It might cause Im
munity from punishment to those guilty of
the unlawful conspiracy, Mr. Gillespie wild:
1 must say that I do not think any of
these hleh criminals sre trembling In
thelx boots from fear of Imprisonment as
thinas are now. and if nil of them should
escape Imprisonment by rushing to the
commission and unbosoming themselves we
would see Just as many irrnziea iinimriers

held. Hesines. we uiigru iu si- i"- v.m
r,iQirn ths benefit of the doubt on the
question that they, as officials of the gov
ernment are Interested In the enforcement
of tbe law. and that they would not tako

possible to get the truth. The truth Is
what Is demanded.
