Bryan, JEdltor and Proprietor The Capture of Aguinaldo. The most important event of last week was the capture of Aguinaldo. General Funston planned, and with the aid of a few Americans and a number of natives, exeouted a brilliant and dar ing plot for the trapping of the leader of the Filipino forces. Learning of the whereabouts of Aguinaldo, he organized a small band and arranged with some friendly Filipinos to conduct the Americans in the guise of prisoners through some ninety miles of the enemy's country to the pres ence of the chief, who was then taken into custody by General Funston and conveyed to Manila.

But now that the rebellion is over thrown, and wo know pretty nearly the amount of our national debt, the more gold and silver we mine, we make the payment of that debt so much the easier. It will be seen from the above that Mr. Lin coln held to the quantitative theory of money a theory denied by the republicans in the cam paign of '96.
