If ho reaches Annapolis in time he will be sent on the summer cruise with other cadets of the fourth class. He is only 82 years of ngc, nud St is said at the department that if Deignan succeeds in getting through the academy there is no good reason why he should not ultimately reach the grade of rear admiral.

The basis of the new assessment was reached when the council agreed that the new assessment should be made to aggre gate the same figures as the old, $44, 438,782. There will, of course, be slight variations, but this was mad? the basis. Six small changes in valuation were made from the assessment of a year ngo. They are: The De? Moines Union, the Hubbell terminal property in Des Moines, is increased from S3. r >,000 to $50.000 per mile, on 3.70 miles. The Omaha Uridge and Terminal Company is assessed at S3,OOC r>er mile, on 3.f> miles. It has never before .bnnn assessed. The Ames and College ruilroad is raised from 81,000 'o 81..103 per mile.

American Commission Prepares nn Act* drens to Filipino*. NEW YOUK, March 24.—The Journal's Manila correspondent cables that the address to the natives of the Philippine Islands, drafted by the American commission in behalf of the United States government, and embodying the Views of the president, has been made public. The address assures the Filipinos of the intention of the Americans to develop the powers of self- government in the people. It explains that the United States hns assumed international obligations which it must fulfill, and which make it responsible to the whole civilized world for the stable government of the Philip, pines. The commission, it is explained, is to interpret to the natives the purposes and intentions of the president toward them, and also to suggest the establishment of such a government as shall suit the capacity and requirements of the Filipinos and bo consistent with the interests of the United .States. The protection of the United States is not to bo exercised in any spirit of tyranny or vengeance: but, having destroyed the Spanish power and accepted the sovereignty of the. islands, the United States is bound to restore peace in the Philippines. To this end. all insurgents are invited to lay down their arms and place their trust in the. government that omanci-. Dated them frr.m the oppression of- Spanish rule. The majority of the commissioners incline toward giving the Filipinos a. sort of tribal or provincial local autonomy under a central government, which shall be military until a purely civil system is proved to be feasible. MORE ARKANSAS EXCITEMENT Moro Attorney (len«ritl Ilntnley Tiilks of Stiitnte. DES MOINKS, March 25.—Relative to the decision of Attorney General Griggs that the Sherman federal antitrust law is only operative against trusts in their interstate relations, Attorney General Remley, of Iowa, says it cannot affect this btate except in one way, for so far as Iowa is concerned it has no state law under which successful prosecutions against trusts may be instituted. There is a statute against combinations, pools and trusts, milking those interested therein guilty of conspiracy, but grand juries in Iowa, cannot indict for conspiracy persons out of the state for acts done out of the state. If a' ttust doing business in Iowa should pool with another trust, then indictments could bo found. This is remote. ALL ARE TO WEAR UNIFORMS. Seven Negroes So Far Lynched nnd May Follow. TKXAISKANA, Texas, March 24.—A race war is on in Little River county, and during the past forty-eight hours an indefinite number of negroes have met their death at the hands of an infuriated white population. Seven are- known to have been lynched, shot to death or slain in some manner, and the work is not yet done. The bodies of the victims of the mob's vengeance are hanging to the limbs of trees in various parts of tho county, strung up wherever overtaken, while that of another who was shot to death while trying to escape was thrown into a creek and left there. The country is in a state of most intense excitement. White men are collecting in mobs, heavily armed and determined, negroes are fleeing for their lives, and the community is in an uproar. The trouble grew out of the murder of a' prominent planter near Rocky Comfort. BIG TIDAL WAVE. Prospective Ucct Susrar Fnct.ory.

AdtnlnUtratloil tfrlil iio frothing trhtl Sohnrmnn Commission Kepot-ts. thomasville, Ga., March 27.—The administration will not decide upon iti permanent policy respecting the Philippines until the Schurman commission reports, it feels that its present knowledge of the islands is too indefinite as a basis for a fixed policy. Mare/over, an immediate decision is felt to be needless, since for the present the only problem is the restoration of law and order and the establish ment of stable, peaceful conditions This and the appointment of a diplomatic representative at Madrid are two of the most important matters remain Ing open. The Madrid mission probably will be raised to an embassy sooi after payment of the $20,000,000 indemnity, and a man of the highest qualifications and attainments choser for this delicate and important post Gen, Woodford may not be the new envoy, owing to the fact that New York already has such an undue pro- portion.of tine highest diplomatic appointments.

THE BATTLE IN PHILIPPINES. De»crlptl<m of the Dlspodtlon ol th« •Troop* East, of Manila. i WASHINGTON, March 25.— Major 'Simpson, chief of the bureau of military information, was busy during the .day taking the fragmentary information of the movements here and there !of the battalions and brigades and so ^assembling them as to give on the military map a complete picture of. to- Idnv's theater of operations. As explained, the field of to-day's action is as follows: Back of Manila at a distance of >about seven miles from the water 'front, sweeps a great semi-circle of ('American troops. This arc is about 'twenty miles Ion? and embraces about J31.0!i()'meii. It is cut midway by the jl'asig river, which forms a natural military division. To tlie south the are is under the icommand of Major General Lawton. ! now this has been the field of 'activity, with Wheaton's fly ing column .'beating hack the rebels. ! But to-day Lawton's troops are idle and the scene of activity is shifted to 'the north of the river. Here the par- ^tial circle of American troops sweeps Jfroin the water works around to the 'bay i Major General MacArthtir is in com- Imatid of all the troops north of the river, and those are rotiffhly estimated at between la.OOO and 14,0('i() men, the 'others being with Lawton on the south. Before the action began this ;tnorning MacArthnr's forces were di•vided into three main bodies. Far to the right, near the water iwoi-U-s. was Male's brigade. Far to the • left about Calooean was the brigade of >llarrison Grny Otis, and of Wheaton, |the latter having been drawn from JLawton's forces on the south in order ito strengthen MaeArlhur's command Jl'or this operation. j Between tho two wns the brigade ol itlall, held as a sort of reserve. Hale'.s -brigade, as shown on the map, was •made up of the Third Nebraska, First jSoiith Dakola. First Wyoming, First .•Colorado and Battery B, of the Utah iartillery. , Harrison G. Otis' command on the jleft was made up of the Twentieth j'Kansas. First Montana. Tenth Penn 'sylvania, a battalion of the Twenty• third infantry, and Battery A, of the ;Utah artillery. ? These are the troops, with the ad Ulitional lorce of Wheaton's and some Irecent arrivals, possibly not yet re Iported, which have sustained the brunt 'of the action today. , The probable line of action today jbegnn with MacArthur's moving rapid 'ly northward to Novaliches, ''passing •the insurgent forces on the left. On [reaching Novaliches, MacArthu;- turn jsharply to the west, intending to make !a. forced march of about seven miles tc jPelo (given as I'olo in the dispatches). i By this movement Mac Arthur's forces fare carried outside the insurgent base jof operations. This base is at Mala[bon, midway between ' MacArthur's •forces at Pelo and the combined forces of Harrison Gray Otis and Wheaton at jCaloocan. ; Thus the rebels are flanked and between two strong bodies of American 'troops. To the west of them is Manila (bay, cutting off retreat in that direc- 'tion. and to the east the forces of Hall •(or Hale), as reported by General Otis, ire "demonstrating" iifordcr toforbid an insurgent movement toward the •east. They are thus left between the Itwo main bodies of American troops ;and must engage either the one or ;other of them. ; _It is General Otis' plan, as shown bv •.lus dispatch, to have the brigades df ;uheaton advance toward those of Mac- jArthur, thus gradually enclosing the rebels between two parallel lines un- .til they are either crushed or made iprisoners.
