This decision may lead to n harassing war with the natives ot tho Philippines. It is hoped and believed such a rnhiinlry will be averted, but it remains tor tlie insurgents to determine what the result will he. It is reported from Washington that the President has ordered Gen. Miller to land his troops at Iloilo. The American commander is directed to be conciliatory toward the natives, but at the snme time he is Instructed to use force, if necessary, to effect his lauding and establish himself In the desired camp. In other words, Gen. Miller is lo net on the defensive. He will not fire a gnu unless attacked by the Filipinos, but if the natives willfully shoot at bis soldiers he is to administer a. dose of American retribution and marksmanship. Gen. Miller has about 3,000 soldiers at Iloilo, and among them are men of the Fifty-first Iowa infantry. He will also have the support of severnl gunboats, for Admiral Dewey notified Secretary Long of the Navy Department that he had sent the Concord and the Petrel to join the naval force under Col. Dyer at Iloilo. It Is not known how strong a force the insurgents have at that point. The War Department has information which seems to indicate the natives have only about 15,000 stand of arms, and it is nssnmed that fairly represents their lighting power nt Iloilo. They have no modern artillery, while the American force is well equipped In that respect. There is no doubt of the ability of lien. Miller to defeat the Filipinos in pitched battle, hut he has been warned not to he the aggressor. Dispatches from Manila report minors that Aguiualdn has gone to lloilo to take com-mund of the insurgent force. He has hitherto assumed �n attitude of hostility to American authority, but advices from Gen. Olis lead American olllcials to believe he will submit when forced to a final decision between peace and war. The instructions of Hie President relative to the administration of affairs in the Philippine Islands, as transmitted to Gen. Otis at Manila, tire comprehensive enough to fully meet present, conditions ns well as any contingencies that may nrise. The President urges that the commander of the forces of occupation shall proclaim Hint we come "not as invaders or conquerors, hut as friends, to protect the natives iu their homes, iu their employments and in their personal and religious rights." After promising support and protection to those who will co-operate with the Government to give effect to these benefits and purposes, tho President dcclnres that, while the military authority must he supreme until the legislation of the United Slates shall otherwise provide, the municipal laws of the territory in respect to private righls and the repression of crime, will remain iu force; all ports In the Isl- ' anils will he opened to the commerce of all friendly nations, and all goods will be admitted upon payment of "such duties as shall lie in force nt the time of their importation"; and the ollicera to administer local governmental affairs are to be selected ns far as may he practicable from the iuhabilanls of the islands after they have taken Ihe oath of allegiance to the United Slales. 'Die instructions adequately convey tlie purpose of our Government hi assuming control of the Philippines. Watson Would Succeed Dewey, Commodore Watson has applied for the command of the Asiatic squadron when Admiral Dewey relinquishes It. Unless Dewey changes his mind, however, there will be no change for nearly a year. Tho latter ollicer has declined all offers of relief, believing he can best serve his country at Manila. Unless the law Is amended, he will retire from actlvo duty next December. 870.20, as against about �-10,000 for 1MI7, this difference being caused by Ihe absence of Hie national seal renewals, wliich nil occurred in 1S1I7, so that llie fees from oilier sources were really larger this year than last. Gov.

Sooner or later Spain is bound to slip up on that mamma appeal. It appears thut Sampsou and Shifter agree that neither of them had anything to do with it.

Not perhaps that It's much of a reason for our washing our hauds of then, but millions of the Filipinos are said not to know tho use of soap.
