By Bandits From Moun
tains of Negros
Island, P. I.
BUT IT WAS PRESERVED
AND SENT TO HONOLULU
As a Present to H. M. Dow of High
Sheriff's Cflke Who
is Now Proud
It will be remembered that n short
time ago, II. 51. Dow, the chief clerk In
the High Sheriff's oftiee, iccelved ns 1
Christmas present from Eddie A. I.e v
It. known In Honolulu by the name of
"'Colorado" or "Denver" and now a
sergeant In the Sixth U. S. Infantry, a
baftle torn Dag which was accompani
ed by only the latter part of a letter.
Ily the Gaelic, 5lr. Dow received n full
description of the ling from Lewis and
has been kind enough to allow the
Bulletin to hare It for oublleatlon. The
letter contains other Information he
sides that bearing on the flag and Is, In
part, .is follows:
"As wo have often read letters of the
hoys In the different stations In th-3
Philippines In the newspapers that nio
sent out to us from time to time and
we never see our own Island mentlone J
I thought I would write you a few lines
to let our Honolulu friends know th.tt
thcro Is also an Island of Negros whe-c
the Rth Infantry Is stationed In about
thirty garrisons. In one of these gar
risons I nm stationed to guard the Ins
remnants of one of the Union flags
which has seen many a rough day In
nil kinds of weather and has been ap
and down over the hills nnd mountains
ot Negros since 5Iarch 13, 1893. Tho flag
was Issued to the native troops or Un
serves ns a post flag. After It had bean
hoisted at various places and carried
back and forth from one place to an
other. It was finally hoisted at Cain
yan, a town on the southwest coast,
there to stay for n while. This was In
November of 1S99. On the Stlt day of
December, the revolution In Negros
broke out In a fight at Olnlgaran where
the Insurgents attacked the garrison.
I.lctit. E. G. Peyton was then In com
mand of tho Negros Reserves. He or
dered that body of troops back to thW
station to strengthen It, Ot course, the
flag was brought back with the Re
serves and hoisted. It remained here
until 'April of 1900 when again Cana-
yan was made a station and the flag
went there the second time, guarded
by the Negros Reserves In charge of
Lieut. Jose Ramos.
'I must now leave the flag and Re
serves for n while to say something of
the others who belong here. In the
mountains of Negros Is a bandit chief
by the name of Segubela. He Is often
called "Papa Islo." "Papa" because he
Is a religious fanatic. Ho has succeed
ed In making all his followers believe
he Is a propjhot and that prayers and
other things of the kind written ny
him. will save those who carry them
from death by bullets or any of the Im
plements ot war.
"Whatever these prayers are or
whatever are the talismans, they prov
ed to be of no account In the light ot
these fanatics against tho Americans,
especially the Gth Infantry, during
July, August and September of 1899
when Lieut. Col. Dynes made an expe
dition ngalnst Papa Islo and pushed
him farther and farther toward tho
southern part of the Island, In tho lat
ter part of July, 1900, Papa Islo es
tablished himself at Iualauan on th.)
southern coast ot tho Island nnd joined
his forces with those of one called Rufa
Hoycs, another but less active native
bandit who had also established a lit
tle republic of his own which ho turned
over to Dlonlsio Segubela upon the
Jatter's arilval on tho southern coast.
"Segubela was, of course, not satl.i-
fied with the size of his republic so he
planned an attack on Islu, a town about
four miles south ot Cauayan. On arriv
ing there, ho found that Lieut. Itanns
had already occupied the town that
very day. Ho sent out his right hand
man, Rufus lloyes, together with tho
bandits of his own band nnd nttackol
Canaynu at about 4 o'clock on the 14th
day of July, 1900. Lieut. Ramos, always
on the n,ul lve, tecclved notice of the
attack nt about 5 a. m. and In less th m
ten minutes, ho was on the march 10
tho relief of Cnnayan.
"Ramos Immediately located tho
mountain bandits and marched boldly
forward to engago them. He was met
by a volley which hurt no one on tc
coutn of tho rrlng aim of tho bandits.
Tho Hag which I have sent to you waa
In the midst of tho Reserves and they
carried It forward with a yell, their
minds set on exterminating tho fana
tics of tho mountnlns whom he found
fought llko tigers on account of tholr
fanaticism and belief that nothing
could hurt them.
"At tho end of three hours' fighting
tho Reserves were forced to retire be-

Every One Bitters
cause their ammunition had given out,
and Lieut. Ramos saw that to charge
bayonets meant suicide, for there wort,
about ten bandits to every member ot
the Reserves nnd every man was nrmed
with cither a gun, a bolo or a spear. 1
might state Just here that the bolo Is a
cane knife on the pattern of a machete,
only broader and heavier. After Lieut.
Ramos had ictlred upon Islu for am
munition, the flrst sergeant of tho I.e
scrvos arrived nt Cnnayan with a small
force. He Immediately dispatched a
courier to Lieut. Ramos to tell him of
his arrhni at Cauayan In a row boat
with only fifteen men. He had enmo
from a place about fourteen miles
north ot Cnnayan. Lieut, Ramos push
ed his men forward with all the speed
possible and was soon back again at
Cnnayan. With these united forcts,
tho Reserves drove the bandits from
the place, dispersing them nnd sending
them running In every direction. How
ever, the town was burned ns It was
Impossible for the Reserves to do nny-
thlng toward stopping the (lames while
tho fight wns going on.
The Reserves at once hoisted the
Stars nnd Stripes on a bamboo pole
tho only one left In the place to show
that they were victorious over great
odds of tho wily bandits of whom they
had killed twelve and wounded twenty
five. The Rescues had only one man
wounded nnd n citizen ot the plnce was
killed whllo carrying ammunition to
the firing line. It might be said that
the forces of Lieut. Ramos amounted to
thirty-five men all told, whllo those of
the bandit chiefs amounted to over
three hundred fanatics. That evening.
Lieut. Peyton arrived on
with a detachment of Americans nnJ
another of Reserves. The next morn
ing, he went In n scouting tiln throiK',
the mountains with seven Amerlcntis
and nineteen natives.
"These men were all mounted, an '
.they had covered a conslderalv
amount of ground when, all of a tu'
den, they found that the rear ku.u 1
of the enemy was directly In front '
them, Lieut. Peyton gave tho command
to gallop. In a low voice, and the met
started forward. The bandits were
completely surprised. The troops of
Uncle Sam dashed In among them nnd
tlien thcro was a running fight for ov:r
two miles, the bandits hunting cover
wherever they could find It. On ac
count of the mountainous character of
tho country, the Americans nnd He
serves were unable to make tho flgnt
decisive enough until the bandits had
been pushed across a stream. At this
time, another gallop was ordered and
the bandits were so completely routed
that, to this day, they have not had the
heart to attack another coast town.
"The flag was then brought back
hero to Jlmamayla because It was torn
so by bullets In tho lights with tho
bandits. Tho hoys took needles and
thread and sewed up the holes In what
remained of the Hag. When tho post
(lag was torn away by a typhoon, this
battle scarred flag was put up In Its
place until nbout two weeks ngo (this
Is tho 12th day of November), when
another typhoon took away over a
half of what remained of tho Hag ami
now, though It only shows tho stars
and nbout four stripes, it proudly
