comprehensive statement of the situa-
tion in the islands. Jt is understood
that he will make a statement soon to
the press which will cover hisobserra-

a formal report to tfie President cover-
ing the subject in detail. The report,
however, wilL not tie made until the
other members of the commission ar-
rive in Washington and not until aftei
Admiral Dewey’s return. It is under-

of a very strong faction of the natives,

present the entire population, a consid-
