A Secretary Root received a cablegram from general Otis that seemed to indicate a weakening on the part of the insurgents in Luzon. It contained a proffer to deliver the american prisoners who have been for to Many months in the hands of the insurgents and also sought permission to Parley with general Otis. This cablegram was at once taken Secretary Root Over to the Cabinet meeting and formed the main topic for discussion at the beginning of the session. However upon Reading the message carefully its apparent importance seemed to diminish. Secretary Root recalled frequent efforts on the part of the insurgents in the past to gain time at critical moments opening negotiations ostensibly with the object of making peace and he was not sure but this last offer was something of the same kind. However the Secretary was of the opinion that it would fail to afford the insurgents any advantage. General Otis would receive any messenger and listen to him and make answer to his proposals but this would not restrain the military operations in the slightest degree and the american arms would lose no ground no matter How negotiations turned out. There is a possibility also that the insurgent May have become disheartened at the renewed and intense activity in the direction of reinforcing general Otis and concluded. In View of the great Force gathering to open the Campaign in the dry season that further resistance would be useless. To is pointed out As a noticeable fact thi Aguinaldo name do no appear n general Otis dispatch and though this May not be of great significance still among some of the army officers it is surmised that there Are serious dissension among the filipinos and that purim some of the discordant events Are acting on their own re-sponsibi1,?.y.
