Washington, June 6.-The navy
department, at 2 o'clock, posted
the following bulletin :
"Admiral Dowey reports that
the insurgents have been actively
engaged within the Province of
Cavite during the past week.
"They have won several victories,
taken prisoner about 1,800 men,1
and 50 officers, of the Spanish
troops not natives.
"The arsenal at Cavite has been
prepared for occupation by United
States troops on their arrival on

him now prisoners at Santiago for

Manila, May 31, via Hong,
Kong, June 6.-The Spanish out
posts have been driven in all along
the line, simultaneously and with
great slaughter. It is said th&i
1,000 have been killed. There ha?1
been fierce hand-to-hand fighting
for 70 hours, despite the typhoon
which is raging.
The violent winds and torrent?
of rain render the rifle s of the
Spanish troops unavailable. The
natives easily win at every step
with their slashing knives.

concerning South Carolina's place
in previous wars may be worthy of
notice and may also act as a
spur upon the patriotism of any
who may be lacking in that esti
In 1812 the six New England
States furnished, to be exact, 5,162
men, and the little and much
abused State of South Carolina,
furnished 5,696, or over 500 more
than all of New England. In that
WBr the .entire north furnished
58,552 and the entire south, with a
smaller population, furnished
96,812, or not very far from double
the number-fully double con
sidering the population.
In the Mexican war Massa
chusetts furnished 1.047 men and
all the other New England States
furnished 1,532. Plucky little
South Carolina furnished 5,262, or
more than double as many men as
all of NewEngland.while the entire
north furnished 23,054 men and
the entire south furnished 43,630
The facts and figures are taken
from the archives at Washington,
"Thorns in the Flesh," page 209.
History must not be permitted
to record the failure of South
Carolina to furnish the quota
called for in the present emergncy.

In our advertising columns will
be found an announcement of Ex
Senator John J. Ingalls' forthcom
ing book, entitled "America's
War For Humanity." Canvassing
agents will find in it a book of
rarnarkable interest, and certainly
of extraordinary , salability. The
history of the war is told in picture
and story, and in a way that always
characterizes the brilliant pen of
Senator Ingalls. In narrating the
incidents of this war he finds
grand scope for his suporb
descriptive and analytical powers.
The theme is worthy of the author,
and the authoi is worty of the
theme. It is published by N. D.
Thompson Publishing Co., of St.
Louis, Mo. It will be a monumental
work that will not only be every
where read, bus it will be a
monumonnt to his genius that
will outlive in history his brilliant
senatorial career. The subscrip
tion book trade and the canvassing
agent are fortunate in the fact tLat
an author of such rare ability
has been enlisted in its interest.

A native regiment, under Col

the insurgents. The governor has
issued a despairing proclamation
begging the insurgents to come to

Before Powers Take Action.
Washington, June 4.-From
early morning, when the first news
paper appeared on the street con
taining the brief statement of the
sinking of the Merrimac in San
tiago harbor, the officials of the
navy department awaited with in
tense interest official confirmation
and explanation from Admiral
Sampson. In the afternoon the
story came, lacking in detail, it is
true, but giving, in rough outlines,
a sketch of American heroism thai
will live through generations to
There is no doubt that the name
Hobson is destined to be bracketed
with that of Cushingamoug Amer
ica's naval heroes, and indeed, it
was the opinion of the majority of
officers who scanned the Associated
Press' account of the sinking of the
Merrimac that the exploit surpass
ed in brillianc}7 and, as an exhibi
tion of cool daring, even Cushing's
famous attack upon the Alber
marle. Reward sure and adequate
is awaiting these American heroes,
and Acting Secretary Allen has so
pledged himself after consultation
with Secretary Long, who is still
confined to his room by a lame
leg. Medals and promotion are
the least they can expect at the
hands of a grateful people.
. Moreover, they will not languish
long in a Spanish prison, if the
authorties bere can bring about
their release, for half an hour
after Sampson's bulletin was
diplayed on the wall of the navy
department Colonel Carter,
assistant adjutant general, had
taken the preliminary steps to
arrange for an exchange of
prisoners, and was learning just
how many Spanish officers and en
listed men were still held in
captivity at Fort McPherson,
where they had been taken from
the prizes captured by the i
American naval vessels. In addi
tion to these, tho navy has just
turned over io the military
authorities at Fort Monroe, for
safe keeping, another Spanish
officer, suppossed to be of high
rank, but who hen so far managed
to conceal his identity.
Tho officials are confident that
they have more than enough
Spanish officers to offer as ransom
for the one American officer and
seven enlisted men held by
Corveru. The officere, one and all,
took note of the generous recogitiou
by the Spanish admiral of the
bravery of the Americans, and his
kindly treatment of the prisoners,
and it can b9 guaranteed that the
admiral's lines will fall in pleasant
places as any captive has a right !

in the end and forced to surrender
The naval situatiun is believed
to be entirely satisfactory.
Notwithstanding the Spanish
reports of the ^clearing away
of the Merrimac, it is not
believed for an instant that Samp
son will submit to losing this so
dearly purchased advantage, and
he can be relied upon to prevent
the removal of obstruction. With
the Spanish fleet caged inside the
harbor, there to remain until they
are starved out or surrender, Samp
son will be free to detach most of
his ships for service elsewhere.
This means, according to common
belief, an immediate attack upon
Peace signs have been multiply
ing. There has been a notable
change in the tone of tho Spanish
presB, and, although up to this
moment,ao advances have been
made to the state department by
;.ny of the European powers, there
is an indefinable suggestion in the
air that any moment may bring
forth overtures of this kind.
For this reason the campaign
against Porto Rico will be hur
ried, in order to ensure its possess
ion by tho United StateB before
peace is attained.
Cf the Cadiz fleet no fear is
entertained. Notwithstanding the
many published reports, probably
all ascribable to Spanish ingenuity,
t? the effect that this fleet has
already started for either the West
Indies or the Philippines, it can be
stated that the government has
information, which it regards as
reliable, that Spanish fleet had not
left Cadiz up to yesterday.
Meanwhile, army preparations
go forward without the sligr'jst
sign of cessation.
To-day bids were opened for
supplying 1,500,000 cartridges,
two more transports were purchas
ed and arrangements were made
to use four of the large Spanish
steamers captured as prizes for the
transportation of troops to Cuba
and Porto Rico.
Naval Constructor Hobson,
whose name is on every lip in Was
hington tonight, is weil known at
the navy department, as he served
in the bureau of construction for
several years, His associates
regarded him as combining great
ability as a student with th e ec
centricity often accompanying
genius. It was remarked by one
of the chief officials of the
department tonight that Hobson
was a man who] held naval reg
ulations concerning matters of
form in contempt, and was obliv
ious to official rules. These dare
devil characteristics were offset,
however, by his recognized ability
in all branches of the naval
science, particularly naval archi
tecture. Although the youngest
man in his class at the naval
academy, he graduated at the head
of the class, a signal honor, which
led to bis being sent by the govern
ment f >r a course in the'naval
schoolB of Europe. Here he gained ;
new honors. On returning to tbis i
country he served with the de. '
partment and also saw sea service,
and about a year ago bpcame ?
nstructor iu naval architecture at
he Naval academy at Annapolis.
When the war broke out he asked
Por active survice and, at the same
time, insisted on taking the three
aaval cadets of his class with him,
in order that they might gain the
idvantage of practical experience
m shipboard during the war. AB
i result, he and hiB three cadets
?rere assigned for service on
Admiral Sampson's flagship. It
eras the prevailing expression at
the department tonight that Hob
son was just the character to take
the lead in such a hazardous feat
astbat.of sinking the Merrimac.
It it presumed that Admiral
Sampson chose him from among
many volunteers, owing to there
fact that his expert knowledge of
naval construction would permit
him to sink the Merrimac in such
position as to prove moBt effective
in blockading the channel.

Issues all Forms of Policies
at Lowest Possible Rates
Consistent with Safety.
ND without making special medtion of each of its many popu
lar plans of insurance, we desire to invite the careful examina
tion of all concerned in Life Insurance to THE PROVIDEN I 'S
TWENTY-YEAR RENEWABLE TERM POLICY-A SPECIAL
POLICY FOR BUSINESS MEN.
Twenty years is a long time. This is true in life insurance, as
well as in other business transactions. Nearly all life insurance poli
cies are contracts for a period of twenty years. They are made so by
iusurance companies to supply the the needs of the insuring public.
When a man takes a whole-life, twenty payment life or twenty-year
bond, he cousiders its cost to him during twenty years, and the settle
ment which he can make at end of twenty years. Experience and
statistics prove that only a small percentage of policies are continued
longer than the twenty-year period.
Men take on large lines of insurance from age 30 to 40. The en
suing twenty years cover the period when their families are growing
up and being.educated; it also covers the period of their greatest busi
ness activity. It covers the time when their families aud business in
terests require .tho greatest amount of protection.
A man's requirements are not the same at 60 years that they are
at 40 years. His family has grown up, his business conditions have
changed, or the necessity for insurance has disappeared.

for that time. The premiums on this policy are less than one-half the
premiums charged for a twenty-payment life. If a man wai.ts insur
