the Rent of the Asiatic Race*—Gen.
Otis' Health Is Good.
Washington, Juno 11.—dfaj. Gen. E. S.
Otis, accompanied by his aids, Copt. Slay
den and Lieut. Stanley, reached Washing
ton from his home nt Rochester, N. Y„
whfre he stopped over to visit with Mrs.
Otis and hiß children, at 7:45 o’clock thie
He was met at the station by Adjt. Gen.
Corbin and Gen. Swairn, and the party was
driven directly to tne Arlington Hotel.
After breakfasting Gen. Otis repaired to
the wnr department, where he formally
reported to Mr. Miklejohn, acting Secre
tary. Thence Gen. Corbin escorted him
arfd N his aids to the White House. The
President was in his private office in elo.-e
consultation w-ith Senator Allison, Senator
Cullom and Justice Harlan w hen the party
Gen. Otis and Gen. Coibin were immedi
ately ushered into the. President’s library,
where Mr. McKinley met him with the
utmost cordiality, congratulated him upon
his apparent good health and thanked
him several times for “his signal services
t,o the country.”
Gen. Otis made no report to the Presi
dent in detail, although the situation in
the Philippines in a general way was al
most the sole theme touched upon. After
a minutes the President invited Gen.
Otis into his office and presented him to
Senators Allison and Cullom and Justice
Harlan, and for over half an hour Gen.
Otis remained talking over the situation
In the Philippines.
Organised Revolt Is Dent!.
When Gen. Otis left the White House
he was naturally reticent concerning the
subject of his interview with the Presi
dent. But he did not hesitate <o reiter
ate his statement, made repeatedly since
landing at Son Francisco, that the Fili
pinos’ rebellion, as an organised revolt,
was dead. He spoke of the insurgents
who still retained their arms as “robbers”
When his attention was called to the
views of Judge Taft, the president of the
Philippine Commission, in the Manila dis
patches printed this morning, he express
ed the opinion that they were satisfac
tory. He said the United States would
be compelled to maintain in the Philip
pines for a considerable period as large
an army as is there at present.
“The army,” said he, “will be needed as
a measure of repression until the rob
bers and guerillas are stumped out. The
maintenance of this large force is neces
sary, owing to the vast extent of terri
tory which we must cover. We have es
tablished ourselves in Negros, Cebu, Sa
mar and many of the other islands, in
Addition to Luzon, And are to-day actu
ally exercising effective authority over
more territory than Spain ever did.”
Gen. Otis said that practically all the
leaders of the Insurrection were either
dead, raptured or pacified. The recent
rapture of Gen. Pio del Pilar, he thought
had probably been effected with the con
sent cf that general. So far as Agui
naldo hifnself was concerned. Gen. O 'is
slip not inclined to credit the report of
his death. In bis opinion, it mattered lit
tle, however, whether Aguimtklo was dead
eft* alive, as his influence has been com
“Agulnaldo,’’ said he. “is probably in
hiding somewhere in the mountains of
Northern Luzon, but he carries little
more influence than any other individual
at large. He is discredited and is a
Tribute to Filipinos.
Gen. Otis spent the afternoon at the
war department in conference with the
head* of the various staff departments in
regard to the condition, and needs of their
departments in the Philippines.
He made one statement in particular
which came ns a distinct surprise, in view
of the fact that he has spent a yenr and
a half in fighting the Filipinos, for her de
clared that these same Filipinos were
without question the very best of nny of
the Asiatic races living on the Paeific
coast and inlands. He paid o high trib
ute to their acquisitiveness, saying that
young and old were alike anxious to learn
from the Americans, and quick to do so
if given nny opportunity. The demand
for schools on the American plan was
ipso liable. I<* had not been possible to
secure a sufficient supply of Spanish-
American text books, the market having
been denuded cf them. When the book
hungry Filipinos were told this, they beg
ged for American school books, and de
clared that their children could learn pom
them even without the Spanish text and
translations. Gen. Otis found to his as
tonishment that such was the case, and
he says that in the course of a very few
months, the Filipino children pick up a
fair knowledge of English. Even the old
natives con the text books in
the effort to fix English phrases in their
minds. There was a dearth of teachers,
too Gen Otis often had to the
soldiers in his ranks who knnv a little
Spanish, and so were suitable for detail
Gen Otis said be lo ked upon this
eduoat’onal movement as the only solu
tion of the Philippine problem, and was
confident that the spread of American
ideas through th-* Filiri-'O schools would
|rt the end make good citizens of the
Bave for a swarthy color, the evidence

vifv much as h=* did when he was list
In Washington before the Spanish-Ameri
can war. He emnhaticallv contradicted
t>*e s orls that h hnd been i l whle
In Manila, and declared that he was now
in p rfect health, a statement w hich was
borne out by his appearance.

ercises of the academy. He will return

“Prince Ooohtomsky, editor of the Vie

temporary nature, an.l cannot be compared
with the great upheaval that is still to

“The prospect for Europe and

Berlin, June 11.—The German foreign

office suppose this happened Saturday or
The dispatch further says the Interna

secretary of legation was attacked by

and expresses fear that the German em

An official of the German foreign office
called attention to a remark ascribed to

Washington, June 11—The statisticians of
the Department of Agriculture estimates
the total area planted in cotton at 25,558,-
(HX) acres, an increase .of 2,036,000 acres,
or 8.7 per cent, over the productive area
of last year.
He estimates the increase at 7 per cent,
in South Carolina and Alabama. 8 per
cent, in Texas and Georgia, 9 per cent,
in Louisiana and Tennessee, 10 per cent,
in North Carolina, Mississippi and Ar
kansas, 15 per cent, in Indian Territory,
18 per cent, in Oklahoma, 25 per cent, in
Virginia and 27 per cent, in Missouri. In
all these states the increase is more or
less localized, being least where the pro
duction of cotton is the most dense and
grea<est in those regions where cotton
growing has hitherto been less extensive
ly engaged in and where physical condi
tions arc not in all respects the most fav
orable to its production.
In general, the increase has been re
stricted by the scarcity of labor,, the high
price of seed, the enlarged area in fall
sown crops, and, in certain sections, by
exceptionally unfavorable weather condl
t on*. Along the northern border of the
cotton belt land from which wheat has
been harvested is being hurriedly planted
in cotton, but the amount is relatively in
considerable and allowance has been
made for i< in the estimate.

with 85.7 on June 1 of last year. 89. al the
corresponding date in 1898. and 87.1, the
