Manila, Ang. 20. One lieutenant of
the Twelfth infantry was killed and
another was seriously wounded while
recocnoitering Saturday evening north
or Angeles. Tbe Americans encoun
tered a large force of insurgents and
trove them from their positions.
Lieutenant Cole, of the Sixth infan
try, with eighty men, encountered 100
insurgents entrenched in the moun
tains of the island of Negros and routed
them after an hour and a half of severe
fighting. The Americans had three
men slightly hurt. Nineteen dead in
surgents were counted in the trenches.
Six rifles and a quantity of reserve
ammunition were raptured. The Insur
gents recently cut the cable in Laguna
de Bay leading to Calamba on the
south shore of the lake, but the break
has been repaired.
Washington Hears of tha Fighting-.
Washington, Aug. 21. Two dis
patches announcing engagements with
the Philippine insurgents were received
at the war department yesterday from
General Otis. One, dated Manila, Aug.
20, is as follows: "Lieutenant Cole,
Sixth infantry, with eighty men, at
tacked and routed 100 of the enemy en
trenched at Tibuan, Negros mountains,
having three men 6lightly wounded.
The enemy left in the entrenchments
nineteen dead, six rifles, and all the re
serve ammunition. Supposed to be
armed Tagols who a few days since
crossed from Panay in small boats.
The other dispatch is dated Manila,
Aug. 19. and says: "First Lieutenant
Alfred W. Drew, Twelfth infantry, was
instantly killed, and First Lieutenant
Willis Uline, of the same regiment,
was severely wounded yesterday in an
attack on the insurgents in the vicinity
of Angeles by two companies of the
Twelfth infantry. No other casualties.
JIMINEZ DEPARTS FROM HAVANA,
Can. Brooke Orders His Release and He
Goes to Santiago de Cuba.
Havana, Aug. 21. Immediately upon
learning of the arrest of General Juan
Isidro Jiminez, Major General Brooke,
governor general of Cuba, gave orders
for the release of the prisoner. The
aspirant to the presidency of Santo
Domingo left Cienfuegos yesterday
morning bn board the Pol aria, bound
for Manzanillo and Santiago de Cuba.
After his release he remained at the
Union hotel until he left the city. He
complained bitterly to his friends of
the arrest. It is rumored in Cienfugos
that a yacht will meet him at Man
Before leaving he said to the corre
spondent of the Associated Press: "My
mission is perfectly peaceful. I am
unarmed and am going home in an
swer to my country's call to take
peaceful possession of the presidency.
It was no more lawful to arrest me
than it would be to arrest Mr. McKln-
ley when, after his election, he was go
ing from Canton to Washington. I
am not a soldier taking expeditions
with me. Nothing of that sort is neces
sary. My appearance in the island will
be the signal for peace and guod gov
"An enthusiastic welcome will be ac
corded me by 90 per cent, of the popu
lation of Santo Domingo rich and
poor, men, women and children desir
ing my arrival. I have absolute as
surances that the acting president will
co-operate with me as soon as he sees
what the public desires. I cannot un
derstand the action of the United
States toward me. Many of my best
friends are Americans, and my policy
when president will be to establish the
closest relations between the two gov
ernments." SCHl'RMAIf ON THE FILIPINO.
Says Tnat When Ed nested Ha Is as Good
Omaha. Neb., Aug. 21. President
Schurman, of the Philippine commis
sion, passed through Omaha Saturday
en route home from Manila. In an in
terview he said: "It will be a surprise
to many Americans to know that the
educated Filipino is the equal of any
other civilized people in the world.
Americans must deal gently with the
Filipino. He is entitled to sympathetic
consideration. There are many pleas
ing traits in his character.
"His home life is exemplary and as
a class he Is well disposed toward his
neighbor or his superior. Once his con
fidence is gained, if dealt with in a
frank, straightforward manner, tbe
misunderstanding will all be dissipated
and the Filipino will realize that the
American is his friend."
Other views of the professor ex
pressed are summarized as follows:
The rebellion is not a Philippine rebel
lion. The rebellion does not even em
brace all of the island of Luzon. No
more than 1,500,000 of the 9.000,000 peo
ple of the Philippines are in revolt. All
of the other people of the entire Phil
ippine group of 800 islands, with the
exception of the Tagalos, who comprise
one-half of the natives of Luzon, are
neutral. The natives of the other isl
ands, who are nominally in revolt, are
in fact only terrorized and coerced by

Pwiata Aax Baraqaa,
Detroit, Mich.. Aug. 21. A Tribune
special from Harbor Beach says: Fire
lives were lost yesterday afternoon by
the capsizing off Pointe Anx Barques
of the schooner Hunter Savidge. She
was bound from Sarnia to Alpena, and
when struck by a squall capsized. The
following were drowned: .Mrs. John
Mnllerweiss. of Alpena. wife of the ves

Mrs. Fred Sharpsteen, wife of the cap
tain; Sharpsteen, son of the cap
tain: Slate Thomas Dubuy.
Details are very meager, and the fate
of the rest of the crew is unknown.
Wrecking parties have left for the
scene. The Hunter Savidge was built
at Grand Haven. Mich., in 1879. and
wag owned by John Mullerweiss, of
Alpena. His wife had been ill for some
time and was making a trip on the

FATAL FIGHT TO FOUR.
Three Against One, but They Are All Dead
Shreveport. La., Aug. 21. News has
just reached here from Lake End
Natchitoches parish, of a desperate
fight between Callie Brown. Robert Lee
Brown and Dr. W. H. Glover, on one
side, and B. G. Freeman on the other.
Freeman shot to kill, and with his first
shots Callie Brown and Dr. Glover fell
dead upon the floor. The tragedy oc
curred in Freeman's store. The third
shot from Freeman's revolver felled
Robert Lee Brown, who pleaded with
Freeman to spare his life. The latter
allowed Brown to leave the front door.
Brown stepped to the door, firing at
Freeman as he went.
The latter, though wounded, sent a
bullet through Brown's breast, and
both expired, leaving four dead men
on the floor of the store. All the par
ties were men cf high standing. The
trouble grew out of an old grudge be
tween Callie Brown and Freeman.
About an hour before the tragedy oc
curred Freeman and Callie Brown had
a difficulty in which several shots were
exchanged, but neither were hurt.
WAS IT COLLINS' MONEY?
Negroes Find Over $S.OOO Near a Place
Where He Was Kobbed.
St. Louis, Aug. 2L Three negroes
who presented a shoe box full of mu
tilated United States currency, rep
resenting probably more than $5
000, to the sub-treasury for re
demption were arrested. They
declared that one of their num
ber named James Martin had found the
bills in an unused wagon road at Mer
amec Highlands, a suburb of St. Louis,
near the spot where in June, 1S97,
Chrales D. Collins, the Memphis race
horse man, was beaten into insensibil
ity and robbed of $5,650 in paper
The negroes were released, but the
money was retained. The police believe
this may be tbe money stolen from Col
lins. Martin Ensley, also a prominent
Tennesseean. who was said to have
been with Collins at the time of the
assault and robbery, was held on sus
picion, but was released, as his friend
refused to prosecute.
ITCOY IS "ALL RIGHT"
In Spite of Being Knocked Out by a Prac
Chicago. Aug. 21. "Kid" McCdy
sparred three rounds Saturday night
with a well-known local amateur
heavy weight at an entertainment giv
en by the Griddle club. The "Kid" was
greeted with enthusiasm by the club
members, and as he stepped to thechair
assigned to him some one started the
slogan "w hat s the matter with 'Kid
McCoy?" "He's all right!" yelled ev
erybody in concert.
McCoy did not have his misfortune
of Friday night thrown up to him. Mc
I Cormack, who literally knocked the ex-
rpert middleweight out, is an almost
unknown boxer, and it was a chance
blow, got in because the "Kid" was not
vigilant enough.- They are to meet here
in a six-round bout again on Sept. 8.
