Washisotox, D. C, Speoiai-Secre-tary
Alger, Adjutant General Corbin
and Colonel Bird, assistant quarter
master general, in charge of transporta
tion, had an hour's consultation with
the President relative to the question
of re-enforcements for General Otis. A
definite decision has been reached to
continue recruiting men at all the re
eruiting stations for serviee in the
Philipines and Secretary Alger said
when he left the White House, after
the conference, that General Otis would
have 40,000 men when the rainey sea
son closed for a resumption of active
operations. There are seventy recruit
ing stations m the United States
and enlistments are in ha
taken at all of those sta
tions. The enlistments are to be
for service in the regular army and re
cruits are to be organized into regi
ments or assigned to regiments already
formed after enlistment No organize
lions as such are to be accepted, if
sufficient recruits can be obtained by
regular enlistment. General Corbin
said the enlistments would be for three
years, although the law for the crea
tion of the provisional army of 31,000
in excess of the regular army of 65,000
provides only for such a force until
1901. Arrangements are to be made at
once for increasing the transportation
necessary to get these additional troops
to the Philippines.
The decision to re-enforce General
Otis by the end of the rainy season is
interpreted to mean that aggressive
campaigning will cease until the bad
weather ends. Until that time our op
erations will probably be confined to
occasional excursions to places in close
vicinity to our lines, where the insur
gents may have congregated in force.
By remaining quiescent under good
shelter during the rainy season it is
hoped the health of our troops will be
conserved and the danger from climatic
fevers reduced to a minimum.
General Otis has cabled the War Do
partment that he has the skeleton or
ganizations of two or three regiments
which it is proposed to raise in the
Philippines. At the War Department
this is said to mean thit General Otis
has the officers for these regiments se
lected and that they are ready to be
filled with enlisted men. How many
of these can be secured from the vol
unteer regiments now in the Philip
pines is not known. It is stated at the
War Department that the recruits now
being enlisted at tne rate of i.tMH) a
week cannot be used for the rolunteer
army provided for in the act of March
3. authorizing 25.000 men, although it
would be an easy matter to transfer
these men with their own consent to
th9 volunteer service, if it should be de
termined to raise additional troops.
Later in the day it was definitely de
cided to begin the enlistment for the
first rolunteer servioe under the. act of
the last Congress. The reports to the
Adjutant General, based on the re
ports of the recruiting oil'sers and on
close estimates as to the number of
soldiers in the Philippines and in each
command in Cuba and Porto Rico show
that the regular army is up to its full

Dr. Buxton's Golden Jubilee.
On June 17th, 1819, at Rutherford
ton, N. C, a young deacon by th
name of Jams Bnxton, was ordainei
to the priesthood by the Right Rev. J
Stillman Ives, bishop of the diocese o
fnorth Carolina, the ordination e'er
mon being preached by Rev. A. A
Watson, the present venerable bishoi
of the dioceso of East Carolina. Oi
the evening cf June 17, 1899, the fi f
tieth anniversary of this interestinj
event was celebrated in the beautifu
and old-fashioned rectory of the par
ieh of St. James, Lenoir, N. C, whei
the whole citizenship of the town, fol
lowing the lead of the pastors of al
the chnrches of every denomination
gathered together to manifest thei
esteem and affection for the venerablt
and beloved rector of the Eoiecooa
parish, the Rev. Jarvis Buxton, D. D
One pleasant feature of the occasioi
was the presentation to Dr. Buxton o
an elegant mahogany easy chair, as i
slight token of affection from the la
dies of bis parish; and from 6 to I
o'clock the beloved patriarch of th
diocese of Asheville, assisted by hi
daughter, Miss Frances Buxton, re
ceived the congratulations of his host
of friends of all denominations upoi

and tho earnest prayers of all wh
were there went up that thin goo

Washisqtox, D. C, Special. The
first volunteers to be raised for service
in tbe Philippines will be those for the
skeleton regiments now being formed
by General Otis. It is sot believed
that there will be the least difficulty in
obtaining these men. It is , probable
that some time will elapse before the
troops of tbe provisional army are sent
to Manila, but meanwhile they will be
drilled and taught marksmanship in
camp. Tbe officers of tbe War Depart
ment think that a number of volunteers
now coming home will desire to return
to the Philippines for short service af
ter they have had an opportunity to see
home and friends. These men are re
garded as the most desirable for the
regiments being organized by Gen.
Otis. It is leaaned at the War Depart
ment that there is no rush to get the
new organizations to Gen. Otis at the
present time. The rainy season having
set in, it is not believed that these
troops will be necessary for service, ex
cept to relieve those who have been on
active duty. The announcement that
a portion of tbe provisional army was
to be raited has caused a swarm of ap
plications to be sent to tbe War De
partment by those wlio are seeking
commissions in the new regiments.
There are two regular transports
now at San Francisco, the Pennsylva
nia and the City of Para, one sailing
Jane 80, and the other July 12, carry

56 officers and 2,875 men are now on
the way to Manila, and are expected to
arrive between July 20 and 26. There

At Manila there are the Honcok,

officers and 6,456 men. It is expected
that these ships will bring back the

Otis decides to send them.
PEACE NOW IE16NS W SA10A,

Aru, via 8a Fbaxcxsco. By Cable.
Peace and quiet now reign in Samoa,
in marked contrast to the warlike scenes
of two months ago. Tho arrival of tho
auxiliary ernieer Badger, en May IS,
with tho international eomaaiMioa oa
board, eansed a distinct change iu af
fairs bore, Tbe eommission lost no
time, bat went to woik immediately,
electing Mr. Tripp chairman, aad Mr.
Morgan aeerotary. The commissioners
held interviews, first with King
Tanu aad then with Mataafa. Tana
was not at first reoegnized as Kiag
by the commissioners. Tana and bis
chiefs readily agreed to give up
their arms and stated that they were
prepared to accept any formal govern
ment tbe eommission might recom
mend, even if the kingship were abol
ished. Tbe following day Mataafa and
hia party came alongside tho Badger,
singing aonga and "flying tbe Samoaa
flag. Tbe rebels were ordered to lower
the flag, which they did. The commis
sioners explained to the chief that tbey
had come to make peace. Mataafa said
be and his cbiefs were tired of fighting.
He said bis party would recognize any
government fixed by the commission,
but be hoped to have a King of Samoa,
as it was an old established institution.
Mataafa readily agreed to give op the
guns held by bis party, but insisted
that as tbe weapons were the private
property of the natives, tbey should re
ceive compensation for them. The com
missioners issued a proclamation stat
ing that the guns would either be re
turned or proper payment made for
them after all the troubles had been
settled. This, of course, means that
payment will be made, as it would be
folly to return the weapons. Mataafa'a
party also asked to be represented by
attorneys before the commission, but
the request was denied.

that in the southern islands the young
Filipinos are constructs g fortifications
against emergencies. Every port is gar
risoned by a thousand or so volunteers,
whose weapons, however, are very
crude, only about. 20 per cent, being
armed with rifles (Remington). They
are, however, full of patriotism, and
state that tbey will not yield to the

Thkfr is a rumor afloat that there
ill soon be consolidation of the Atlan
lie Coast Line system and the Plant
Ttem. This would be nothing new
in railroad jaanipulation, aa the ten
dency has for sometime been toward a
consolidation of independent systems
until there remains only a very few
large systems. And these few are
clamoring for Congress to pass a bill
allowing them to pool their interests,
which, if Congress' future record is to
be judged by its past, it will likely do.
Whenever yon talk to a certain clasa of
men tho kind who don't own any
railroad, but who take their que from
those who do and from their agents
about government ownership of rail
reads, they argue (and it is the only
argument they have in stock) that it
would centralize too great power in tbe
hands of the government. But what
is to be said in favor of such a cen
tralization of power in tbe bands of a
few private individuals--be building
np of a separate and distinct govern
ment, a government of railroads, which
will be more powerful than the govern
ment of tbe people? If such cen
tralized power is to exist, would it not
be much better ti have it under the
control of the civil government rather
than the railroad government ?
