HAD TO. CARRY THE
'BATTERIES BY HAND
(By lVder.il Wireless Telegraph.)
WASHINGTON, Jimein. (Special to
the AUvorliscr) Tho. war department
has had no report today of the latest
fighting on tho Island of .lolo.
A belated report fioiu Brigadier (Ion
eral J. Pershing, received today, gave
further details of tho fighting last week,
"Friday, at noon, Cnplajn Patrick
Moylan, of tho Philippine. Scouts, took
mount Bung.ibunga, after ;i hand-to
hand fight. Ono scout of the Thirty-first
Company was killed. Mountain
sido ery preeipitious. duns carried
up by hand."
Up to Three Weoks Ago Was of
Opinion That Dattu Amil
The latest Manila files, Teccived yesterday,
stato that on May 23, Oenoral
Pershing was confident that he had tho
.lolo situation well in hand and expressed
tho opinion that. there would be no
necessity for t)io uso of force to bring,
tho Amil tribesmen. to their senses, although
in special correspondence from
'.Tolo, published a few' days bc'fore, thq
Manila Times had described t)io situation
a tense. Tho .Tolo correspondent
of the Times wroto: ,
Tho situation at .Tolo is stilt tense,
with 'the military on tho qui vivo nnd
everyone, fronint'yatc to commander,
messing as to tnc, outcome In tho negotiations
with the thousand Morns still
entrenched on llagsak. Xtaw recruits are
shooting at their own shadows in .Tolo,
and there is 'ft, marked dogreo of nervousness
among" Americans duo to tho
long protraction of the difficulties with
Nukib Amil, and tho lack of knowledge
of tho renj situation. Meanwhile tho
authorities arp awaiting .the second
visit of Nakib Am"i w'10 nas promised
to do what lie canith his followers.
"Tlio mot recent developments In
tho situation arc the evidences of ructions
among the hill men themselves,
.lust how serious the discord has become,

np. Nakib Amil declared that he wan't
, ed to surrender, but that nt Urn
week lie was' not .able to Induce
his followers to do so. Thu camp is controlled
by a crowd ofyouiig bucks
who nro itching -fir blood, and it is
very apt 'to take more than conferences
and persuasion before they content to
lenvv Bagsak and surrender their guns.

authorities gave-them u good idea

and tho serviceable guns', number probably
not more than :()(), piactlcally nil
of tluuii old models. Tho lack of good
arms together with tho .dissensions and
lack of leadership make Bagsak easily
accessible if tho order wero given Jto
the chafing troops to go up nnd take it.
Tt is improbable, however, that tho
policy that has been followed, dorn
hero will bo changed. Sinco tho consultation
with tho leaders and tho

If Nakib' Amil reports failure

likely that' the authorities hefo'vy'll
await word from, the Sultan of Turkey,
hoping that1 Mohammedan
religion, will sav tho thing that
will put the ipiletiiH to flip trouble and
savo n lot of iiii'ueeossaVy bloodshed.
Pershing Was Confident.
In discussing 'tho matter witli tho
on May C:, said in Manila:
"Since tlio transfer at" our troops

several of his leading jnen have held.
