-There was another fruitless but
rather exciting chase after Ton iill
on Thursday. A negro from Mr.
Hugh S. Wylie's place came to town
and stated that he had seen Hill in the
woods. The negro said that he knew
Hill well and he had not been mis
taken. The negro's story was evi
detly true and a party of men from
town started out on horses in pursuit
of Tom Hill. After a careful search
nothirg could be seen of him and the
party returned home. Bill is evi
dently in hiding 'in the woods and
galleys and will probably succeed in
eluding his pursuers for some time to
come. Those who are familiar with
the country around Winnsboro say
that one can travel from Creight's
woods to White Oak without coming
ut of woods, excepting once for a
very short distance. This seems to be
the path chosen by Hill, as he has
been seen in several different places
between here and White Oak.

IN THE PHILLIPPINES.
A Fairfield Boy Describes a Fight With
Cagayan, Mindano Island, Philio
pines, April 14.-I wrote you while
we were camped on the i~uneta at
Manila and hope that it rt. 'd you.
We sailed from Manila c~<iebruary
14th on transports Salvadora and
Castebano and the 45th regiment on
U. S. transport Tarar. The 1st bat
talion of ar regiment was unloaded
at Lagaspi and 2nd and 3rd battalions
with the 45th regiment were unloaded
a~t Neveva Caceres on extreme south
ern portion of Luzon Island. The. 1st
battalion had qtite a fight a' .
a great deal of heavy marching through
the mountains and captured from the
insurgents something over a hundred
Spanish prisoners who were in an
awful physical condition, On March
23rd we were again loaded on the
ar transports leaving the 45th at
N -Nia Caceres to garrison the town.
O March 29th we landed at this
place, 3rd battalion consisting of
companies I K G and M with colonel
and staff and band. The natives sur
rendered the town [without any re
sistance, with twelve.Remington rifles,
which they claimed were all. Nearly
al of the natives left the town on the
following day, and on the morning of
April 7th they attacked the town at
about 5 o'clock, 1,200 strong, with
spears and shields and about 200
Remington, Springfield rifles, and
shotguns. I was on guard at the time
and saw the attack from the start. I
was corporal of the guard at Major
Case's quarters, which consisted of
three men and myself, with one on
post two hours at a time. The guard
stood inside of the front door in the
hallway and the sentry walked just
outside the door on the street, and
Major Case, with Lieut. Flstcher and
Liet. Berchard, sleeping above.
They made Major Case's their main
point 'of dtack, as it was battalion
headquarters. At 5 o'clock the sentry
called us and said that we bad better
get up as he could hear a strange noise
some distance off. As soon as I
awoke and heard the noise I knew
what it was and started to load my
gun. As I went to the door and upon
reaching tbe street and Jlooking down
at about 200 yards distance I could see
at least 100 coming in a run and yell
ing, flinging their knives over their
heads. We commenced to shoot by
volleys into them, which had no effect,
and they kept coming, and when with
in about 25 yards of us we retreated
bak inside the door in the hallway
and they esme in on us (vith their
boloes and we used our guns as clubs
and shooting at the samo time. The
first three that came in cut one of the
guards all to pieces with their bolves,
which only left three of us. They
were trying to make their way up the
stairs where the officers were sleeping
at the time, but we succeded in keep
ing them down. They brought ladders
with them and put them to the win
dows and tried to go up, but the oM
cers shot them from above as fast as
they could start up. We guards had
to fight hand to hand with them until
the companies could get out, which
took about fifteen minutes. I can't
see how we guards got out with our
lives, as the house was shot all to
pieces and the bolo men inside on us.
As soon as the companies got out they
chared on them and drove them ia
everr direction, shooting them down
every step. After everything had
quieted 'town we found that we had
killed six and wounded one. They
took no prisoners, but killed every
thing in sight. When they went tc
hunt up the dead and wounded the)
found two dead American soldiers,
who were boloed to death on the out.
postnd ten wounded Americans
two of whom have since died from
their wounds. The captain of my:
company was shot through the foot
and left :yesterday with the wounded
for Manila on the U. S. hospital ship
Relief. They found 52 dead insurg
ents and 12 wounded. We buried
the dead next day and took the
wounded to the hospital where they
are receiving treatment, and er ry
now and again one will die. ' re
are two in the hospital who ar iot
six times through the head wit' Ig
Jogenson rites and are still 15 And
look as if they will recover. Tfiront
post had a very close shave, only two
of them being killed. Since the at
tack the Major has 6rdered that when
ever I am on guard that I be sent to
his quarters, which relieves me of the
dangerous outpost. The natives have
mostly ll returned to their homes in
the town and report 100 of their men
killed and 150 wounded. We are still
finding dead ones :on the outskirts of
the town, and for six miles each way
you can see blood all over the road
and in some houses, which goes to
show that a great many were wounded.
We are now prepared for an attack at
any time and looking for it. I think
that they will try to burn the town
next time. We rise levery morning at
4 o'clock and cach company takes its
position as they attack every time just
at day-break. It they [ever attack us
while in position there will be hun
dreds of them killed and then we will
never ha7e any more attacks at this
place. The Major thinks that they
will not attack us again, and I hope
they won't. We will remain here the
balance of our enlistment and garrison
the town. Cagayan is on the north
ern portion of the Island of Mindano
and a much healthier country than
Luzon We have very little sickness
in the regiment at present, and what
little we have is chills and fever.
I will have to close this, but will
write you again before many days and
a somewhat better piece. I am on
guard every other day. We have at
present a very strong guard and will
continue to keep it on for a while
whieh makes it very hard on the men.
With best wishes to your paper and
self I ani
