Danger Prom Aguinatdo.
(Jen. Merritt lias again cabled the
War department relative to the sit
uation in .Manila, which he finds
\ ery unsatisfactory and dangerous,
owing to the attitude of the insur
gents. In the opinion of (Jen. Mer
ritt, the attitude of the insurgents
there is similar to that assumed by
< iarcia's Cubans upon thequestion of
their right to enter and possess them
selves of the city, although the in
surgents are a very much more for
midable element, being not only
more numerous but better armed and
tilled with the arrogance following
numerous victories over their .Span
ish foes. (Jen. Merritt, however,
indicates that he will do his utmost
to protect the citizens from the
savagery of the insurgents, though
his task is a delicate and difficult
one, because of the fact that he must,
while lighting the Spaniards, be
ready at any moment to repel the
insurgents. The general gave notice
that lie was about to combine with
Admiral Dewey in a joint demand
for the surrender of the city to the
I nihil States forces, thus forestalling
the insurgents, and this move may
cause a rupture.
Ip to the date of the report (Jen.
Merritt had with him about 12,0(10
soldiers. So far seven expeditions
have lett San Francisco carrying
soldiers to the Philippine, and it is
the intention to furnish Merritt at
least S,OOO men more than his pres
ent force. If he delays his attack
until all these have reached him
Manila will not be taken in that way
before September, for the last of the
troops have not yet started from
San Francisco. It may be, however,
that the arrangement as to the Phil
ippines, which it is expected will be
included in the peace treaty, will
obviate the necessity for further
action on the part of the American
Prospects ot an Early Peace.
New York, Aug. :i. A special to
the Hvening Journal from Madrid,
says: "Spain accepts the principal
conditions of pcaceasset forth by the
American government, and only the
peace details are needed to cause all
hostilities to cease at once.
"A pl ace delegation w ill be chosen
at once to confer with the represen
tatives of the I'nited States. The
peace conditions set forth by Presi
dent Mckinley were discussed at
length today by Minister Sagasta,
and at the conclusion it was given
out officially that the terms of the
United States would be accepted.
There are one or two amendments
in the proposition of the United
States that Spain will ask to be
made, and if thi> is done peace will
be declared at once."
While this government has strong
reasons for believing that its terms
of peace have been agreed to by the
Madrid government, the President
is taking nothing for granted.
Arrangements for pressing the war
to a successful conclusion are going
forward precisely as if no negotia
tions for peace were in progress.
Notwithstanding the warlike prepa
rations being made, the belief in
official circles amounts almost to
a conviction that active hos
tilities practically have been con
cluded. The first step probably will
be towards an agreement to close
active hostilities, pending the draft
ing of a treaty of peace along the
lines of the accepted terms.
Large Attendance ami Interesting Bes-
Hions at the Normal School.
About seventy students are now
registered at the Normal School and
the work grows daily in interest and
effectiveness. The large number of
teachers in attendance are receiving
the most careful training and prepa
ration for their work in the schools
of the county later oil. The course
of study gives not only the branches
required to be taught in our schools
but affords an opportunity to those
who are ready to take up work in
advance subjects. Have you l>een
down to visit the school yet ? If not,
go some day. You will be cordially
welcomed and you will be interested
in the work.
