MITCH INTEREST AT WASHINGTON.
! Official There Follow the Movement of
the Army la tho Philippine.
Washington. March 28. The third day
of the fighting north of Mani'.a brought
little of a decisive character from which
war department officials could Judge
what the final outcome of this move
ment would be. In all official quarters
the most intense interest prevailed.
Early in the day General Otis cabled
the war department a brief but compre
hensive dispatch summing up the situa
tion. It disclosed that severe fighting
was going on yesterday with our forces
advanced as far north as Marilao,
while the insurgents were being driven
back with considerable slaughter. This
and the press dispatches satisfied the of
ficials that the strategic movement of
entrapping the insurgents between our
lines had not proved as successful as de
signed, and that the move had now
shifted to a retreat by Agulnaldo's
forces and a pursuit by our troops.
General Otis' dispatch, although re
ceived early yesterday, was sent last
evening. Manila time, and summed up
the work of the three days. That the
fighting would proceed into the fourth
day was shown by his closing sentence:
"The column wlil press on in the morn
ing." This refers to today. The engage
ment has row shaped itself so that It is
looked upon as more of a chase than the
execution of a strategic movement.
With the American base advanced to
Marilao afd the insurgent base forced
back to Malolos the main bodies of the
two opposing forces are about ten or
twelve miles apart. It is expected that
every mile of the distance to Malolos
will be contested by the insurgents for
General Otis reports that it is a
stretch of country covered with the in-
trencbir.ents thrown up during the las;
MaJoIos is the insurgent capital. It
represents more to the insurgents than
ar.y other place in the Philippines and
little doubt Is entertained. that they .will
make a desperate stand there. The tac
tics of Aguinaldo are taking him grad
ually beyond the range of Dewey's gun.
Whlla the .insurgents were at Malabon
on Saturday they were within a mile ot
the water front and easily within range
of the fleet. But as they have moved
northward they have gradually moved
away from the lay. Malolos in about
seven miles hack from the bay. although
there are shallow estuaries which would
permit light draft boats to get within
a mile or two.

Atlanta. Ga-. March 28. Representa

Lewis says he believes the Republican
will put up McKinley and Roosevelt
(or the next campaign and the Demo
sratic ticket he thinks will read Bryan
and Schley. For chairman of Republi
tan national committee Lewis believes
Mark Hanna is slated, while Senator
Gorman will fill a like position for the
Democrats. In explaining his "line
ups" Lewis said: "You will find tha
the Republicans will not renominate
Mr. Hobart. because they can make a
stronger nomination. Of course the fact
that the anti-trust fight will be par
ticularly prominent in the coming cam
paign makes him rather vulnerable, for
most of the trusts have been Incor
porated under the New Jersey law
Says a War Hero I Needed.
"But that Is not the chief reason for
looking elsewhere for vice presidential
timber. The Republicans see that there
is to be a wholesale expansion and they
figure it out that unless they have the
active assistance of some war hero, they
will be in a bad fix. Naturally they
turn to Roosevelt, who is certainly the
bsst man they could take."
"Roosevelt would undoubtedly add
strength to the ticket," continued Col
Hi Calculations on the Democracy.
"As to the Democratic ticket, I figure
It out this way: There has been an
effort to .make it acpear that Mr. Gor
man has been fighting Bryan in order
to get the nomination for himself. He
has not had that idea, for he knows he
could not possibly be nominated, but he
rs ptill and will always be an active
factor In the management of Demo
cratie affairs.rtnd when the time cornea
to consider the question of a vice presi
dential nominee he will say: "We must
have u war hero. There is Schley, for
whom the people of the country have
great love.' The people know that
Schley was In that great battle off
Santiago, and that lie was in technical
command thtre. His nomination would
tend to unite all Democratic elements,
and I believe if he were nominated he
would prove a tower of strength. I also
believe Mr. Gorman would, under trios
circumstances accept the chairmanship
of the rational committee."

Des Moines. Ia.. March 28. Municipal
elections were held yesterday in nearly
all the cities of the state, the exceptions

Conference of Quay Eiiend.
Harrisburg, Pa., March S8. There are
rumors here that a conference of Sen
ator Quay's friends throughout the
state will be held at the executive
mansion tomorrow.-to discuss the sena
torial contest. The atory Is that Quay
has notified his friends that he is fee!
ing too badly to leave Florida at this
time, and that he will leave his candi
dacy entirely in their hands. Senator
C L. Magee. of Allegheny, and his fol
lowers who have been voting for Quay
since the beginning of the deadlock, are
expected to break away inside of tpn
days and this is assigned as the most
potent reason for the conference.
