Fifteenth judicial district, Caplx., Philippine
Islands, draw an lnatructlve character
ketch of the Philippine lad roue, for whom
much sympathy la expressed In certain
uuarlers In this country. In a letter to
Tha Res Judffa Norris aava:
In a recent publication entitled "Our
Philippine Problem"1 the author refera to
the ladrone of this country as "The benlQ
cent protector of the people." During six
years residence In tho Philippines, par of
which were spent In the capital and part
In the provinces, with exceptional oppoi
tunltiea for observation of tho life and
character of th people of the lower classes.
I feel justified In the statement that the
Filipino ladrone Is the meanest and most
despicable of criminals and that he 1 ao
regarded by all classes of the population,
detested alike by rich and poor and out
lawed by all authorities that have held
way In any portions of the archlpelugo,
Spaniard, Insurgent and Amcrlcnn all re
garding him aa a public pest .whose ex
termination la Imperatively demanded by
tho public welfare, which consummation
bid fair to be apeedlly accomplished
through the strenuous efforts being made
by the Insular government.
Levying Tribute OB th Rich.
Tho rich man haa Buffered through forced
contributions to the ladrone to aava his
sugar crop from destruction, though this
eclea of exaction la much less frequent
than formerly. The poor man haa been
nd still Is hla chief victim, hla meager
property being ot the mercy of the outlaw
bands who infest the country districts.
The pacification of the country 1 retarded,
Its tranquility continually disturbed, agri
culture Interfered with, all business de
pressed through the operations of the
thieving banda styled by Mr. Willis "The
benincent benefactors of the people."
The ladrone is a robber, the Spanish word
meaning either thief or robber, as most the robbers proceed to ransack the prem

depraved of outlawa; not a single redeem
ing feature to hit utterly despicable char
acter. With all their evil trait, he lack
th rniirua of the enrsalr. clrate and high-
wayman: like a hyena or a coyote, he
prowls about the country rf'y'ff on tha
poor, weak and defenselesa.
Mode of Operation.
The usual procedure of the gang I to
proceed at flight to the houae of thrlf
victim, which they surround before aroua
Ing the sleeping Inmatea. In ordinary rob
beries the banda aeem to be extemporised
for the occnslon, some local leader gather
ing half a doirh followers from the baser
eort of the population for the special oc
casion. Antonio has a grudge against
MvodomoB, who perhapa has asked him to
pay a debt, a sore affront to Antonio aa
with most Filipinos. Nlcodomoa being a
thrifty fellow has an extra cavan or two
of rice In his house and possibly fifty
Mexican peso hidden away In One of the
bamboo joints of hla house, ao Antonio
can at the same time satisfy hla revenge
"d the cupidity tf hla follower by a
aaultlng and looting the dwelling of
Nlcodomos. Juan. Pedro, Soferlno, Igna
cio, Andrea, Rustlco and Vulplano agree
to share In the enterprise and on the night
designated meet at tha house of Antonio.
The motly crowd armed with bolos, spears,
and perhaps bowa and arrows, which oc
casionally constitute th weapons of some
of the party, proceed to the residence of
their Intended victim. The houses of the
common people are build upon bamboo
poles some six or eight feet above the
ground. Nlcodomos and his family are
asleep, like all Filipinos living In the coun
try retiring for the night a little later
than their chickens go to roost. The
family are rudely awakened by crle of

to the alze of coming crop, very few peopio
care to express an opinion. The effect thut
the proapeot of valorization may have had
upon planters, causing them to hold back
supplies, makes people fel doubtful about
the real sixe of the present crop, and, as a
rule, the stlmate for a crop are based
upon the one Immediately before It. In
theae clrcumatanca one la dlapoaed to be
very conservative about venturing an opin
ion. The clrculara from consuming markats
have a good deal to say about the discrep
ancy between the estimate and outturn of
the present crop, but It seems to us that
they are not disposed to give sufficient
weight to what la said In aome quarters
about coffee being held back In the In
