ThiB fight coupled with tbo
ratification of tho peace treaty
makes tbo duty of tlio United
States in tbo Philippines clear.
Tbo insurgents huvo shown thorn
selves thoroughly unreliable, in
capable of nccepting tbe friendly
ofiices of n liberal mmdfd nation
and therefore incapable of being
loft to establish a government of
their own having any of tbo tenets
of modern justice. Tho etroug

who opposed tbe ratification of tbo
Peace Treaty. These men by

have made it possible for Agui

In St'i tlaml tho honor of slay
ing tho last wolf is contested by

Mackintosh, clinches the claim of
his kinsmen to the honor with tho
information that tbo stuffed pelt
of the monster is still trcneuro.l
amoug the household gods of tbe
present head of the clan in Scot
Temple Bar gives an nccount of
the Mackintosh achievement. Tup
burning of tho huge primoval
forest of Duthill, about the year

wolves to take reiugo on ono

the stanch, rugged Highlander ad

ment otlicinls Hgreo that tho fight
botween tbo Americnn nnd Fili
pino forces ou Saturday and Sun
day must hnvo been a terrific nf

from General Otis show that in

thirty seven fatalities, but the offi

ports will show a heavier loss of
life, as tho casualty list of somo of
tho regiments known to bavo beau
engaged, notnbly tho First Ne
braska, which, according to the
Sun's account of the battle, lost
several mon, wero not contained

made it appenr that the Four

NewYork,Feb 8. A cable to the
Sun from Manila dated 7 says: Tbe
scene about Mnuiln today is a
dreary oue. Prior to Saturday
uigbt there were seven or eight
villages that could be seen from
tbe observatory here, which is the
highest point for miles around.
Today all theso places nro in
ruins. It was fonnd necessary by
the Americans to destroy the vil
lages, as tho Filipiuos wero using
tbem ns places of concealment
from which to lit o on our forces.
Thoro was no renl fight todny.
Reconnoiasanco parties who woio
sent out by tho Americans were in
i uuinbor of cases fired upon by
detached bodies of natives, but tho
shootiug wiib desultory and so far
as is kuown did no damage to our
troops. Tho American forces
wore pretty woll tired out after
their two days' fighting, and today
nre taking much needod rest.
As has been told in tho dis
Eatchos aud mail ndvicos to tho
un, the robols enpturod tho Mn
nila water works, five miles noitb
oast of tho city, some timo before
Gonornl Gaudenos, tho Spanish
commander, capitulntod to the
Americaus. Tho Filipinos hold
them until yesterday, whon the
Americans dooided to tako posses
sion of tbo reservoirs and pump
ing station nnd thus hnvo control
of tho water supply of tho city.
Tho First Nebraska Regiment,
two companies of tho First Colo
rado Regiment nnd n battalion of
First Tennesseo Infantry wore
dispatohed for the purpose. Tho
First Nebraska, which wns in ad
vance of tho other troops, found,
on roaching tho pumping station,
which is on the Mateo river, that
tbo enemy hnd rotrented, but had
attempted to cripplo tbe water
supply by enrryiug off pnrts of tho
mnchiuory that wero nbsolutoly
necessary to work tho plant. A
thorough search was made for the
missing parts, it being known that
tho rebels could not bavo destroy
ed them, nud todny Cdlonol Stot
