theh their vlait *as not what might be
ter met) friendly. There was no serious!
clash, anti I am glad of It. The volun
teers behaved nobly during the fight
we had. They are good soldiers.
"As to General Miles' bill to increase
the United States army to 100.000. at
present I cannot discus sthe proposed
measure, for the reason that I have
not s en a copy of it. I think it will
take about thirty thousand soldiers to
hold the islands In case this country
desires to keep them —and I see no
reason why it should not.
“I have no comment to make on the
eoca..ed expansion movement which is
being discussed pro and con these
days. There are many Spaniards on
the islands that want to remain there.
With fifteen thousand I’nlted Stales
soldiers and the remaining fifteen
thou son , evenly divided between the
Filipinos and the Spaniards, I feel sure
the islands could be governed properly
and with credit to this country.
"I did not meet Aguinntdo, but I am
satisfied he is a very shrewd man. I
did not recognize the Insurgents, fear
ing complications. Admiral Dewey, af
ter my arrival, pursu'd the same
course. What was said or done,before
my arrival i cannot state. I did not.
recognize Aguinaldo nor his troops.nor
use them in any way. I had been there
t, n days before Aguinaldo asked to se?
me and then I was too busy.
■Talking with leading Filipinos, I
tohi them the I’nited States -had no
promises to make, but they might be
assured that the government and the
people of this country would treat them
"Purposely, we did not give the in
surgents notice o* our attacks on Ma

It w<? were moved by fear that they
might loot and plunder and possibly
murder. Conversing with American
officers Aguinaldo’s subordinate lead
ers frequently said that they intend
ed to cut the throats of all the Span
iards in Manila.
A Hard Task.
"Aguinaldo himself wrote a com
plaining letter, saying that. the. Inpur

"the booty,' whatever he /nay ■ have,
meant bv that. I took'Bp notice of thisi
