MscArthur. comtnandlnif the army In thr
Phi'Wine*, and military governor of the
Islands ainre May 6. T.<o>. has submitted
hi. report to tips War Deportment.
A considerable portion of the report re
late* to events which look p are previous
to the date when he assumed command,
and he publishes some of the correspond
ence and proclamations of the Filipinos,
obtained before that lime. lie refers to
the change of Agulnnido's plans In aban
dot.lng his army organlxatlon and starling
a guerilla warfare. The conditions of the
country have afforded advantages for
such a policy, he saya. ns they have en
abled the Insurgents to appear and dis
appear at their convenience. At one time
they are soldiers and Immediately after
are within lha American lines In the at
titude of peaceful natives.
A widely scattered formation of Fili
pinos quu-kly followed the guerilla war
fare. which led to a corresponding dis
semination of American troop*, there be
ing fifty-three military stations on the
archipelago Nov. 1. IKS9, and 413 stattona

Gen. Mao Arthur says the extensive dis

dlers of the army to the full limit of en
durance. lie says the apparent desul
tory work has demanded more of disci
pline and as much valor as was requir
ed during the period of regular operations
against concentrated field forces of In
Not Naturally Wnrllkf.
Gan MacArthur speaks in lha high eat
term# of ilia service rendered by the troops
apnld all tabors and hardships.
'/•The Filipinos," says Oen. M.v-Arthnr,
Tare not a warlike or ferocious people
(Left to themselves a larite number of
•them would gladly acceps American ju.
premary, which they are gradually com
insr to understand means Individual liberty
and atoolutc security In their lives and
property. They have been maddened,
however, during the past five years by
rhetorical sophistry, and stimulants ap
plied to national pride, until power of
dlacrlmlnattntc In matters of public con
cern or private Interest, has been almost
entirely suspended. Asa substitute for
all other considerations, the people seem
to he actuated by the Idea that In all
doubtful masters of polities or war. men
are never nearer right than when going
with their own kith and kin regardless
This condition, he says, has raised diffi
culties and obstructions In pacification.
The effort to Institute municipal gov
ernment under American auspices carried
the Idea of exclusive fidelity to the United
bates, hut this met with difficulties
where Filipinos were placed entirely In
control, and secret municipal governments
ware organised In various town* under In
surgent auspices to proceed simultaneous
ly with the American government and
often through the same personnel. Presl
d-tlta and tojvn officials acted openly In
t-half of Americans and secretly In be
half of the Insurgents, "and paradoxlwl
at It may seem, wllh considerable appar
rnt solicitude for the Interesta of both.”
Towns Aid InaiirKrnta .
Wherever there Is a group of Insurgent
foretw, contiguous towns contribute to
their support and render groal assistance
In secreting the soldiers and helping them
to escape. The report says the success
of the guerilla system depends upon com
plete unity of acllon among the native
populated. That thera Is auch unity ie
frankly acknowledged, but how It is
brought about Gen. MacArthur says ho
Is unable to aacerialn. Intimidation ac
counts for the condition to some extent,
but fear would not be successful us the
only motlva. He adl:
It is more probable that the adhesive
principle comes from ethnological homo
gently, which Inducse men to respond for
* time to the appeals of consanguineous
leadership even when such acllon Is op
posed to their own Interest and convle
lions of expediency."
ll* -ays that Ihls statement applies to
the entire archipelago, excepting the por
tion of Mindanao occupied by Moror, and
'he Jolo group, the Moros aeem entirely
sat.sfled with present conditions.
Gen. MacArthur quotes captured cor

insurgent leaders 10 Intimidate and eon*
