ty of peace, known as the Pact of Biak-naEato, was signed thru the mediation of Pedro A. PateJ."llo, and, in accordance with the terms of said treaty, General Aguinaldo together with other revolutionary officers left the Islands for Hongkong (see pp. 29-3 1), but they returned to the Islands in 1898 to resume the fight against Spain and established a Dictatorial Government in Cavite on MaY' 24, 1898, upon the advice of Don Ambrosio Rianzares Bautista, with Aguinaldo as Dictator. On June 12 of that year, he proclaimed the Independence of the Philippines in Cavite, and on the 23rd of same month the dictatorial government gave way to the Revolutionary Government which drafted the Political Constitution at Malolos that was promulgated on January 21, 1899. Aguinaldo was elected President of the Philippine Republic and was at the same time the Captain General and Commander-in-Chief of the Philippine forces. (See Constitution, pp. 35-46) . Because of President McKinley's instruct ions to mainbain the sovereignty of the United States over the> Philippine Islands, the Malolos Constitution was given no recognition by the American military governor and, as a result of a misunderstanding between Admiral Dewey and General Otis, on the one hand, and General Aguinaldo and his officers, on the other, followed by constant frictions between the American and Filipino forces when one party or the other encroached too far upon the neutral zone established between them, an armed conflict' started at San Juan Bridge on February 4, 1899, and the fight lasted until General Aguinaldo's army was defeated. General FUllston and four American officers, with a company of Macabebes, embarked on the Vicksburg, and landed at Casiguran Bay. about one hundred miles south of Palanan, Isabela, where by means of a ruse they captured General Aguinaldo on March 23rd and brought him to Manila and held him prisoner at Malacafian Palace. On April 19, 1901, Gelleral Aguinaldo signed his last proclamation (see page 71), a.cknowledging and accepting the sovereignty ()f the United States. He then retired to his farm in Cavite and lived a country life. Later in 1915 h e was elected President of th e Asociacion de Vete-

xanos de la Revolucion, which organization he h eads up to the present time. I n recognition of his past services, and because of his refusal to accept any appointive office, the Philippine Legislature has voted him an annual pension oil twelve thousand pesos. In the first Co mmonwealth presidential election held in 1935 , General Aguinaldo oppoSE'd the candidacy of Senate President Quezon. Mons. AgJipay also ran for the same office.
