IS THIS PEACE?
When General Otis arrived at
Washington a few days ago he de
clared that the war was over in the
- Philippines, and that there would be
no more "real fighting.". What he
- meana by "real fighting" we do not
know, but what is the substantial
difference between "real fighting"
and any other kind of fighting when
more Americans and Filipinos are
j killed now than during correspond
periods f hen they had real fighting ?
The fact is the real fighting seems
to be the most harmless. When
General Mc Arthur succeeded Gen
eral Otis, he in his first report said
that the war, as far as fighting armies
- are concerned, is over, and that
what we would have to contend,
against now will be guerilla warfare.
But General McArthur Beems to
have some conception of what
guerilla warfare in the Philippines
means and some of the other diffi
culties in the way of establishing
JLmerican supremacy. What he
thinks about it is stated in the fol
lowing Associated Press dispatch
from Manila, under date of the 13th
"If we were fighting an army, the
work would be . comparatively easy,"
said Gen.' MacArthur in speaking of
the situation which confronted him
when he assumed the office of governor-general.
The report had come
, from Gen. Young that Tinio and
Aguinaldo were gathering a force in
the Benguet mountains, where they
bad been hunted and scattered five
months before. The military were
hopiog that Tinio would form another
army because an army can be located
and followed, and if it will try to
make a stand can be defeated, but
such good fortune is improbable.
. For one reason that the Americans are
so . disposed, covering most of the
important roads and passes that it
would be impossible for more than a
few hundred Filipinos to attempt to
assemble without many of them being
discovered, and, he added, for another
reason that the Filipinos have learned
that they can handicap the Americans'
- progress more effectively by irregular
operations. When Gen. MacArthur
has to fight a secret organization which
amounts almost to a government,
which exercises power to some extent
and forces its decrees over all of Luzon
and most of the other islands; collects
taxes here in Manila and even gives
receipts for duties paid on the cargo
and of native boats passing up the
"The control of this undeground
organization is reputed to be in the
, hands of a junta, whose headquarters
is in Manila, but so great is the loyalty
or fear which it commands that the au
thorities have been unable to trace its
... roots, and the question - whether it is
identical with the famous Katinipuan
society is an open one.
"Many of the elections of the mu
nicipal governments held by the Amer
ican officers' are controlled by the
revolutionary organization which con-
. Vjtrols the candidates and some of the
governments are unquestionably effi
cient parts of its. machinery. Prob
ably the men who are directing the
guerilla activity in the towns know no
superior except the general who has
authority in their province, although
they may believe that Aguinaldo is
still the supreme head in fact as he is
in the minds of the'populace.
- The policy of the insurgent machine
is to repeat the Cuban revolution In Jhe
Philippines, to discourage conquest by
so devasting the islands and keeping
them in such a state of war they will
be useless to the conqueror. -Nowhere
outside of the garrisoned towns can
Americans go except in large armed
parties, unless the country for twenty
miles south of Manila and ten miles
north be excepted.
The provinces directly south of
Manila and those north as far as
Dagupan are the quietest of the islands
and their schools , and . local govern
ment are in operation and much
money is being expended in build -ind
roads and other inprovements.
. The municipal governments prove
useful, under the strick supervision of
the American officers and the Towns
are better cleaned and better governed
than many American villages; but
generally speaking the native officials
have no initiative and their efficien
cy without the paternal vigilance of
the American soldiers would be doubt
ful. The theory that the Filipinos
outside of the Tagalog provinces were
friendly to American rule has been
deeply shaken by recent events. All
of the northeastern coast beyond Dag
upan is in a state of; war and there are
frequent fights with heavy losses to
the Filipinos. All of the southern
provinces inhabited by the Vizcayans
are also turbulent and in the Camarines,
Neuva Carceres and Albay provinces
the Americans control only the terri
tory within the picket lines of the gar
risons in the coast towns, while these
garrisons are the object of frequent at
tacks from large insurgent forces.
With the exception of Negros which,
being the wealthiest island of the
Philippines, is the most friendly to
American rule, the Vizcayan .islands
show similar conditions. There are
guerilla bands in Negros which are
preventing the sugar planters from
putting in their crops by threats of
burning the buildings, but American
authority controls throughout the
island and the planters are organ
izing the bandits. Panay is over
run by the insurgents outside
of the American garrisons. They
have 1,500 -or 2,000 rifles, they
levy a tax of 50 per cent on all the
crops planted, which keeps the great
majority of the inhabitants from put
ting in more than enough rice to
keep them alive and the insurgent
paymasters go out from Iloilo with
money collected for their troops.
American officers from Cebu report
that conditions there show no change
from one year ago; that outside of
the dozen towns held by American
troops the insurgent forces control
the country, while the troops in the
garrisoned towns are under arms con
stantly repelling attacks. Soldiers
cannot even venture to the outskirts
of the city of Cebu in smaller parties
than eight, according to official or
ders, and they are frequently fired
upon in the city. An occasional ex
pedition is sent into the country, but
the Filipinos merely scatter before it,
harassing it as much as they can in a
small way and return to the towns,
when the soldiers withdraw.
"Similar conditions prevail in the
great Vizcayan islands of Samar and
Leyte, where large insurgent forces
under Gen. Luckban have been re
peatedly attacking the garrisons, and
.the Americans lack sufficient troops
to send punitive expeditions to drive
them into the country.
"Mindoro and Patawan, two of the
largest islands in the archipelago,
have not been visited by the American
soldiers. Throughout much of the
Phillipines much of the same sort of
terrorizing and destruction prevails'
that Cuba saw before the American
intervention. The neaceful natives
rather than the armed insurgents bear
the brunt of the suffering. In this
sort of struggle for the mastery of the
people the insurgents hold the biggest
We quote this dispatch in full be
cause it gives some idea of the actual
situation in the "pacified Philip
pines." The American people have
been led to believe that the so-called
"insurrection" is confined to the
island of Luzon, and that Aguinaldo
had but a small folio wing, the bulk of
the people being friendly to the
Americans. We Heard little about the
other islands and when we did we
were iold that our troops were sent
in pursuit of "brigands" who were
terrorizisg and levying tribute upon
the people, who welcomed our troops
as deliverers and protectors.
But this dispatch tells us that the
insurrection exists practically in all
the islands, that the authority of
the Filipino government is recog
nized by all, whether it has a local
status or is carried around with
Aguinaldo in his meanderings.
There is something , that the Fili
pinos of all the islands own alle
giance to and it isn't the authority
of the United States. In all the
twelve hundred or more of the
islands in the archipelago there isn't
one where the authority of : the
United States is recognized beyond
the range of American guns. And
this after two years of occupation
and nearly a year and a half of war.
Experience taught them that they,
with their lack of military discipline
and inferior "equipment, were not
able to stand up in battle against
our brave impetuous soldiers, and
in time they abandoned that style of
fighting and resorted to the guerilla
style, and the Cuban methods which
proved so harassing to Spain. This
explains the existence of the "brig
ands" of whom such frequent men
tion has been made in the dispatches
and Reports from Manila. It was
necessary for political considera
tions to have the Philippines paci
fied .before the Presidential cam
paign opens, hence they have been
pacifying them for some time, and
Gen. Otis tells ns another time that
the war is oyer, that there will be
no more "real fighting" and that
the complete pacification is but a
question of time. But the real
progress that has been made in that
direction is doubtless more correctly
stated in the above more impartial
and truthful dispatch. .Really we
are as far from pacification now as
we were when the first shot was fired

The rapidity with which capital w
pouring into Southern manufactures
is enough to make the professional
Bryanites and coddlers of calamity in
that region sniff and groan. The
Manufacturers' Review recounts some
of the industrial improvements pro
jected in the last two weeks. In Geor
gia and South Carolina new cotton
mills and additions to old ones and the
development of water pewer are the
usual story. Cotton mills to cost from
$40,000 to $300,000 are to be erected in
these States, in which small mills have
been paving enormous profits. In
Georgia, at least, 'much of the capital
for the new enterprises comes from
the Crackers themselves. Banks are
springing up in the smaller towns. In
Greenwood, a Palmetto village, a fire
insurance company with a capital of.
$100,000 has been organized. From
time to time we read of New England
cotton manufacturers who are going to
to the South.
In Tennessee a $500,000 cotton mill
is be built in Chattanooga and a dis
used mill in Memphis is to set to work.
Coal mines are opening, coke ovens
and furnaces are building. .Same
story in Alabama, where the Birming
ham district is booming vigorously.
Iron, steel and cotton mills all busy
and new one coming. So it goes
throughout the South. Lumber mills,
sawmills, oil mills, sugar mills mills
of all sorts, grinding or getting ready
to grind. Technically the Mississip
pians abominate Trusts, but they show
no horror at the plan of a cottonseed
oil combination to build a $200,000 re
finery in one of their towns. In
Texas, as any of . its county week
lies knows, every. place that
thinks even tolerably well of
itself is howling for , a mill. Cotton
mills and oil mills are shooting up.
In spite of their remarkable Legisla
tures the dwellers beneath the Lone
Star are willing to take all the root of
all evil they can grub op; and even
that old scourge of the Bobber Barons,
the Hon. Roger Quarles Mills, has quit
spouting and is letting oil wells spout
"Expansion and the Nicaragua
Canal will add wonderfully to the
already wonderful prosperity of the
South. And in the sure and vast in
crease of business and markets and
wealth that lies immediately before
her, she cannot cling for long to the
wealth-proscribing policy of the Dem
ocratic party. In the bout between
politics and and business, politics will
be knocked out."
We reproduce this because it
shows how Southern progress is
attracting attention on the other
side of the line, and because there
are some false assumptions in it
that .Are worthy of notice. While
it does not say so in so many words
the writer would convey the im
pression that aH this industrial pro
gress is the result of Republican
policies, whereas it has been made
in spite of these policies, and it
could not have been made if the
South did not possess such un
bounded resources to invite capital
This has not been a sudden spurt
in progress but has been going on
for ten years or more, with acceler
ated pace as these resources became
better known and more developed.
It may also remarked that all this
progress, (which did not begin until
Republicanism in the South was
overthrown,) has been under Demo
cratic State government, in which
our own people and the people of
other sections who sought invest
ment for capital, or homes, had con
fidence. The inference from the conclud
ing paragraph is that the Republi
can policy of expansion has had
something to do with. It had about
as much as the discovery of gold in
the, Klondike had. Not a dollar
has been invested in any enterprise
in the South based on the prospects
of expansion, and if the sea were to
suddenly submerge the Phillipine
archipelago it wouldn't retard
Southern industrial progress one

Raleigh, N G, June 12. Pursu
ant to adjournment at noon on March
10th, 1899, the General Assembly of
North Carolina met here to day at
noon in special session. As the session
will last but a few days and members
are here on their own expense, the at
tendance is much larger than bad
been expected. Of the 120 Represen
tatives, eighty four answered the first
roll call, and of seventy Senators,
forty four were present. Of the re
maining thirty six members of the
House, three have died and three have
Two sessions were held to-day, both
of them short. The first metat noon,
the Senate being in session but a few
minutes and the House nearly an
hour. Both bodies then adjourned out
of respect to the memory of deceased
members. The afternoon session was
at 4 o'clock and lasted about the same
length of time as the morning session.
Both houses in their deliberations
adhered strictly to the caucus agree
ment of the night before, not fc) go
into general legislation until theTSlec
tion law and the Constitutional
Amendment are disposed of. In the
Senate there was no attempt to over
ride it, but in the House, several mem
bers .who had pet measures that they
feared later might be left without a
quorum to pass them,' urged their
immediate enactment into law, but
the majority was against them and the
House was held strictly down to the
business for which it convened in this
special session. In the House, during
the day, five bills and resolutions were
introduced, but all of them except two
were referred to the committee on
rules, in accordance with the caucus
agreement. The two exceptions were
a resolution in regard to the death of
Messrs., Trotmair, Hart and Wali,
which was passed without debate, and
the amended election law, which was
prepared by the committee. The fol
lowing five bills and resolutions were
passed : Resolution to appoint a com
mittee of inquiry to ascertain whether
Theophilus White has been paid any
money contrary to Chapter 21, Laws
of 1899; an act to repeal Chapter 125,
Laws of 1895, providing for tax col
lector in Nash county; resolution in
regard to death of certain members;
resolution endorsing Appalachian
National Park in Western North Car
olina; an act to amend the Election
This morning at 10 o'clock the House
will take up and pass on its third and
final reading the Election law as
The Constitutional Amendment has
not yet been finally agreed upon in
caucus. The hitch is on the question
of extending the time of qualification
Though there are a great number of
changes in the Election law as amended
they are for the most part of minor im
portance, some of them being a change
of only a word or date. The principal
changes relate to the method of ascer
taining the right of a person to regis
ter, and two sections regarding pro
cedure in courts when extraordinary
remedies of mandamus and injunction
are sought to be applied to the pro
visions of the act. With regard to
ascertaining the right of the applicant
to register, the law has been changed
so as to simplify the requirements
when the applicant is known to the
register. ' In these cases the law re
mains the same as it was prior to 1895.
But in cases of persons whose inden
tity islnot known to the registrar, and
for the purpose of ascertaing the right
of such applicant to register and vote,
the registrar is given larger powers.
Raleigh, N. C, June 13. To-morrow
will be the last day of the special
session of the Legislature. It was
agreed in caucus to-night to adjourn
not later than midnight to-morrow
night The purpose. for which the
members came here has , been acCQm
plished. The Constitutional Amend
ment and the Election Law have been
amended and ratified, and some- other
important general legislation has been
passed. There is now nothing of press-,
ing importance left to be done, and it
is likely that many of the members
will to-morrow morning leaye for their
homes. ', To transact such business,
however, as may still be found neces
sary, a session will be held to morrow,
beginning at 10 o'clock. At this ses
sion, the report of the special com
mittee on memorial will be presented.
At 11 o'clock an election will be held:f or.
school trusteea-in certain counties and
for directors of the institution for the
deaf and dumb at Morganton. Also,
there is a calendar of some fifty bills
to be disposed of .
- To-day was a day of conservatism
in the Senate, but of disorder and sen
sation in the House. - Three sessions
of both bodies were held one, at 10
o'clock, one at 4:80, and one at 10 at
night. At the first session the Elec
tion law was considered. It took the
Senate just six minutes to pass it on
its three several readings. In the
House there was a lengthy and verv
sensational debate and - three hours
were consumed in passing the bill on
its third reading. At the afternoon
session the Constitutional AmRnrlmAnt
was passed and then, in the House,
the flood -gates of general 'legislation
were opened and many bills rushed
through, and many ' more introduced
and placed on the calendar. 7
The night session, beginning at 10
o'clock, lasted nearly twohours. It
was appointed for the.-purpose of rati
fying the amendments to the Election
law and such other legislation as had
been enacted during the day. But

"The prospects for a successful
event in the State and Inter-State Fire

and Charles Schnibben.
Capt McNeill made a verbal report
of his travels through North and South
Carolina in the interest of the Tourna

- Attention of readers of the Weekly
Stab is directed to the announcement
of Littleton Female College in another
column. This institution under the able
presidency of Rev. J. M. Rhodes has
rapidly forged its way to the front
ranks of the best female institutions
in the State and has auspicious augury
of a successful year, beginning Wed
nesday, Sept. 14, 1898. The location is
in Warren county,, immediately on
the Seaboard Air Line railroad, about
75 miles northeast ;pf . Raleigh. The
location is healthfuand the country
round about abounds in mineral
springs of health 'giving properties.
The atmosphere is bracing and there is
no more ideal site for such a school
