Unable to convince the revolutionaries to surrender, Governor General Primo de Rivera issued a decree on July 2, 1897, prohibiting residents from leaving their villages and towns.

On August 9, 1897, Paterno Aguinaldo proposed a peace based on reforms and amnesty. In the months that followed, Paterno practiced shuttle diplomacy and went back and forth between Manila and Biak-na-Bato, carrying proposals and counter-proposals. Paterno`s efforts led to a peace agreement called the Biak-na-Bato Pact. These were three documents, the first two of which were signed on 14 December 1897 and the third on 15 December; to end the Republic of Biak-na-Bato.  The Constitution of the Republic of Biak-na-Bato was written by Felix Ferrer and Isabelo Artacho, who copied the Cuban Constitution of Jimaguayú almost word for word.  It provided for the creation of a Supreme Council, created on November 1, 1897, with the following elected officials Article XXVII.
Debts and other commitments entered into before the promulgation of this Constitution by the generals and other chiefs of the Revolutionary Army, as well as their notes and orders, shall be recognized and ratified today, as well as any subsequent debt certified by the Government. Overall, the biak-na-bato plan was a leadership approach that moderated the authoritarian origins of government through self-imposed restrictions characterized by grace and awareness of genuine patriotism. Since almost all of Cavite was in Spanish hands, [Governor General] Primo de Rivera issued another decree extending the benefit of his pardon beyond 17 May 1897. His goal was to convince Filipinos of his policy of attraction. Some took advantage of the governor`s decree, while the others continued their resistance to the enemy. By July 1897, Aguinaldo and his men had already established a republican government in Biyak-na-Bato, known as the Biyak-na-Bato Republic. The provisional constitution of this republic was prepared by Felix Ferrer and Isabelo Artacho, who almost literally copied the Cuban constitution of Jimaguayu. The Biyak-na-bato Constitution was signed on November 1, 1897. The preamble states: Aguinaldo declared that he would abolish the departmental-regional system of government by adopting the “Constitucion Provisional de Republica de Filipinas”, which the delegates then signed. It was the decision of men over whom the people had no direct control or influence, whose authority came from abnormal and extra-constitutional conditions, but who set their authority at two years and left it to the representatives to interpret the judgment of the people. One hundred years ago today, our besieged ancestors tried to peacefully end the violence and conflicts that had swept the country as our nation struggled to be born – courageous and honorable men – all patriots. Here in this sacred place, about 52 revolutionaries gathered to seek an honorable, just and just peace with Spain, the colonial ruler.
On the second day of November 1897, the first phase of our revolution came to an end. We fought for the independence of our people and for our right as a nation and to take their rightful place among the free nations of the world. Modern constitutionalists will easily discover the flaws in the Biak-na-Bato constitution. Defects are usually seen in the form of omissions or incompleteness. Modern Filipinos want their constitution to cover most requirements and details, mainly out of distrust of their rulers, a distrust due to the experience of martial law. The redemptive virtue of the Biak-na-Bato Constitution was that the handful of men who proclaimed it assured that it would be temporary or temporary. (4) It was also agreed to expel religious bodies in the Philippines and to create an autonomous political and administrative system of government, although at the special request of General Primo de Rivera, these conditions were not required in the drafting of the treaty, with the general claiming that such concessions would expose the government to sharp criticism and even ridicule.
