BETTER MAMLA CONDITIONS. Temper of Native Population Changed Considerably. July 28. Lieutenant flag lieutenant of the under Captain has just arrived in Washington from the Philippines and brings some interesting details of the situation in Manila. lieutenant Elberly says that the sociakaBd sanitary con- ditions in Maoila are-better than is gen- erally in United States and better than weuld be naturally supposed after suoh a short American occupation. The city has been cleaned on an Ameri- can the military authorities are engineering the work with a large force of Chinamen and friendly Filipinos. The Chinamen are relied on for the heavy manual labor. The 'Streets have been cleared of ancient acoumulations of filth. and there has been a house to house in- which is still continuing. There has been more or less-aiatlve opposition to these toufthe people are beginning to see the value of the new measures and to accept the change from the old order. 3 r Lieutenant Elberly says it is a favor- able sign that the temper of the native population.hap changed considerably to- ward American occupation. When the Oregon aivriv.ed in March the native population wac dissatisfied and in an ugly even in the city itself. Cab hotel keepers and other semi-public servants rendered service under protest and even tunned down American trade in some instances. they have found out that they are a thing did not seem to be used and finding American official promises carried out thejf accept the new sovereignty cheerfully.. Compulsory vaccination created some opposition among the natives at its beneficial effects being it has also been accepted. Lieutenant Elberiy says that the health of- Manila is exceptionally and that even among the troops on shore tnere was little sickness from anything but heat prostration. One of the most important naval moves has been the distribution of the 13 little among the big vessels of the fleet on various stations. Through these small the lieutenant there is an effective blockade of the whole of Luzon and some 'boats have been sent to Cebu and Pala- wan. Most of the smuggling of am- munition and food since the arrival of the American squadron has been done in small known as which can run through the island channels where the fleet cannot fol- low them. The patrol boats have been doing business with these skimmers of the seas ene pa- tro boat rounding up 13 bankers in a snigle trip. It is thought that in a short time Aguinaldo will be reduced to a supply of purely home-made ammuni- tion. The soldiers in and around Manila are now well housed in permanent quarters or neipe which are built on a bamboo and are cool and dry. Even on the the sol- diers had comfortable palm huts be- fore the rains set except for the intense were very comfort- able. The rain had not started in in earnest when Captain Barker and Lieutenant Elberly sailed for home. It was well understood then that the rains would cut off all except by and that is given as the reason for Lawton's abandoning San there being a big swamp between it and thp railway that is impassible during the 'rains.

Evans and when they approached a crossing they did not notice that an elec- tric car was approaching until they were too near the crossing to turn in an op- posite direction.

CANADA WON'T COMPROMISE England Must Pimh It Down Her Threat If Sue Does July Sir Charles Tupper and Senator two of Canada's leading statesmen indicate that what- ever may be the hope of a compromise in London and Washington of the Alaskan boundary dispute there Js none and whatever compromise may be accepted by Great short of the cession of Pyramid Har- bor and a twenty mile strip back to undisputed .Canadian it will have to be forced down Canada's throat. Both speak of the failure to arbitrate more in sorrow than in and both abhor and repudiate all thought of armed collision.' The most important fact comes from the minister of Mr. Mills. He told some of the secrets of the nego- tiations that will not be welcome to Washington. He declares that the rea- son the United States commissioners refused to arbitrate was because they were alarmed at the construction put on the English-Russian treaty of 1825 by the Canadian sections 7 and 10 of the treaty came up for discussion.
