A cent ral Otis in forbidding further negotiation Between Tho Spanish at Manilla and the insurgents touching the surrender of the Spanish prisoners held by the latter acted upon bus own authority.

There will be no relaxation of the efforts in this direction but. As the United states Campaign in the Philippines is being conducted with All the Energy possible and As the release of the prisoners depends upon the Issue of that Campaign there can be no complaint of failure on the part of the United states to meet its obligations.

In this condition there is no authority on the part of the spaniards to negotiate with the insurgent without the explicit consent of the United states. Under the rules of War alone1 there would still be ample warrant for any action general Otis might take calculated to prevent the insurgent from receiving supplies of food clothing munitions of War or Money for the latter can always with More or less difficulty be resolved into the former even in the fare of a blockade. If the Spanish minister of foreign affairs feels called upon to redress himself respecting the subject to the state department directly or indirectly he undoubtedly would be informed that general Otis must be sustained though reassured As to the intentions of the United states to use All proper efforts to carry out ifs undertakings.
