Previous Study of the Situation Ac counts for the Small Loss of Troops. Washington, April 11.General Davis has cabled the following report of Cap tain Pershing's attack upon the Moro fortress at Bacblod: "Manila. April 11, 8:25 a. m.Adjutant General, Washington.Iligan, April 11. In pursuance of my orders based upon tne recommendation of General Samuel Sumner, Captain John J. Pershing started last Monday for exploration, of the west coast of Lake Lanao. He visited many of the Dattos per invitation. The Baco lod Moros have persistently defied us since we reached the lake and have kept war flags flying over their" forts, which were reported the strongest on the lake. Repeated efforts were made to induce the sultan to come to camp "Vicars for .a friendly talk, but he never came. "When Captain Pershing approached the fort last Monday he was fired upon and two men were severely wounded. There was nothing left but to overcome the resistance. The place was very strong, surrounded by a ditch thirty feet deep. The first attack drove the defenders out of the exterior trench. On April 8 the fort, was assaulted and- the ditch crossed under Are, over a bamboo bridge made by the troops. The walls of the fort were scaled, the Moros inside defending the place desperately. By 2 p. m. our troops were in full possession. Many of the Moros were killed. "Eleven wounded. Seven cannon, four lantakas and many other captured arms. Previous study of the situation, careful preparation and disposition, accounts for the small loss to our troops, . so ably commanded by Captain Pershing. He has moved forward to complete his ex ploration and visit the friendlie3, his ob jective point being Marahui, where I have forwarded supplies from Pantar, near the Outlet to the lake. I spent last night ther,e. The work on the Iligan road is In good condition and progressing favor ably. In a month wagons will be able to reach Marahui from there. Am leav ing for Jolo to-night.

The weather condi tions were ideal and the day was made a gala one in Bristol. Flags were displayed from many buildings and at the Herres hoff works. Moored off the end of the dock the tender of the Reliance, the steamer Sunbeam, was fancifully dec orated with flags. Colonel Oliver Iselin, the managing owner of the Reliance, spent to-day on the Sunbeam and re ceived a large number of invited guests. Many yachtsmen have come from New York to witness the launching The work men have knocked away the doors at the end of the shop so that .the yacht may pass easily into the water. Although the boat was still somewhat hidden by the staging it was possible by rowing into the dock to obtain a good look at her after end. It could be seen that the Reliance was more of a skim ming dish than any boat the Herreshoffs have constructed for a cup defender. Her floor Is very flat and there is scarcely any bilge, her stern running well under and not deepening Into the keel for many feet. The rudder post has a decided rake and the fin is very thin. The boat has considerable - beam and looks as if . she would be a decided contrast to the Con stitution when afloat.

STUPENDOUS UNDERTAKINGS ' Pittsburg Dispatch. While we boast of our big1 feats, let us look beyond the seas for a moment, says the New York Press. There is the Siberian railroad, costing $401,700,- 000. * The Russians have planned other lines in various parts of the empire, pri vate companies to. build them. But the Imperial government will indorse their bonds to the extent of $250,000,W0. The Simplon tunnel, now well under way, is to be fourteen miles long and will cost $1,000,000 a mile.

Made. New York Sun Special' Service. New York Sun Special Service. Chicago, April 11.Walter Wellman, in a Washington special to the Record Herald says: Great joy prevails in ad ministration circles over the govern ment's success in the Northern Securi ties company merger case. The friends of President Roosevelt in their enthu siasm say this decision makes his nom ination and re-election a certainty. In their opinion the masses of the Ameri can people will give so much credit to the president for his successful efforts to curb monopoly as to make him vir tually invincible in the political field. Of course the democrats do not con cede this. They, say the merger case is yet to be finally decided by the supreme court of the United States, and that the decision .may be reversed. They point to the fact that for a long time Mr. Roosqvelt was given much credit' for his creation of the New York franchise law,, but in the end the court of appeals came along and knocked the whole'thing out. The democrats would like to convince themselves that history is about to re peat itself for they recognize that if the decision stands the administration will be able to wear it as one of the bright est plumes in next year's campaign. According to republican opinion it will not make any serious difference if the supreme court does reverse the decision. President Roosevelt and the republican party have won the applause of the peo ple, they say, for their valiant efforts to prevent the formation of monopolistic combinations and no subsequent reversal by the courts can destroy the popular impression thus created. The republicans are all the more jubi lant because they had begun to fear the country w as not satisfied with the anti trust legislation of last winter. For some time the belief has been growingbased, as every well-informed man in Washing ton knows, upon solid factsthat trust legislation of the late session was ef fected thru a dicker made with the lead ers of the trusts. The country was be ginning to suspect the republicans of in sincerity. Now comes this decision and it is believed by the administration peo ple that it will completely check and off set the tendency to doubt the honesty and efficiency of the recent legislation. engineering vby The fact that this decision against monopoly was rendered under the old anti-trust law Is not likely to receive much attention in the public mind. It is enough for the masses of the people to know that Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. Knox have grappled with the railroad trust and the bee| and beaten them in the&couVfk A few days before Mr. RooseVelt left for his western: tour some'members of the cabinet were discussing with him the Mr. President," said one of the cabi net officers, "the greatest act of your en tire public career was the settling of the coal strike. That is the biggest thing you ever did," "I guess you are right," remarked the president. "Well, it may be the biggest thing up to date," said another member of the council, "but it will have to take second platfe if we can get a decision from the courts against the Northern Securities merger." A WOLF IN SHEEPSKIN Rev. Frederick I. Stiles Leaves Bad Record at New Lon don, Conn. Nnw York Sun Special Service. New London, Conn., April 11.-Rev. Frederick I. Stiles disappeared from this city a few weeks ago, leaving many un paid bills. Miss Lillian Smalley, aged 20, daughter of John Smalley, left town with Stiles. A letter was received from the girl to-day saying that she had been liv ing in New York with Stiles but that he had left her, taking her watch, umbrella and other valuables. The girl wrote that Stiles was still in the city and that he had succeeded in getting considerable money from clergymen to whom he rep resented himself to be a brother minister. In her letter Miss Smalley does not give her address in New York, but says she is going to work to support herself. She says that her eyes have been opened to the kind of a man Stiles is. According to other letters that have been received by the Smalleys, Stiles was in prison several years ago for misdeeds and a relative of his wife's writes that to her certain knowledge he has done no work for the past fifteen years, but has lived by imposing upon the credulity of people In various parts of the,country. He is a very smooth talker and has the faculty of allaying the suspicion of his victims by his cleverly constructed stories. pumping STRUCK A BOULDER Northern Pacific Passenger Engine Derailed Near Stillwater.

Assas sinations of. both Christians and Mussel mans are increasing. In the district of Prileh during the past week no less than fifty Christians wei-e killed by Mussel mans. ' v ' " The Situation Is Grave. Vienna, April 11.M. St. Cherbina was one of Russia's promising diplomats. In his previous posts he had made himself obnoxious to the Albanians and the sus picion exists here that he was deliberately sent to Mitrovitza, where no other, coun try has a representative, in order to pro mote trouble. The danger he ran was so patent that a large escort of Cossacks was sent to accompany him. Russia, before M. St. Cherbina's death, had protested against the sentence of im prisonment on his assailants, and demand ed the latter's execution. It is now ex pected that she will insist on the murder er's execution. Compliance with Russia's demand would expose the sultan to the revenge: of his bodyguard, which Is com posed of Albanians,, and non-compliance might mean = a possible Russian interven tion. Hence the situation is considered extremely grave. PORTER BROKE OUT Pullman Car Travelers Have a ^ Smallpox Time. Special to The Journal. John'stown, N.

A number of patients have tes tified'before the investigating committee that they have been the victims of acts of cruelty and some -ot the witnesses stated that they feared* to talk about what they Jknew on account of the fact that they TOpuld suffer u t the hands of the attendant at the close .of .the - examina tion. - W According4,to the testimony of several witnesses, one of the favorite forms of punishment was a beating with a slung-, shot formed of a sock In which a .potato or some other hard vegetable had been placed. Some of th patients declared they had frequently been choked. One "had been taken into a back room and tied to a chair, an attendant following with a leather belt. * The witness who told this story did not know what had occurred in the back room, however.'

Two attendants, after being closely questioned, admitted that they had kicked and choked patients, but stated that they had been forced to do so in self defense, as they had been attacked. MR.

The Packing Combine Is Said to Be Going On Notwithstanding the Decision. St. Louis, April 11.Acting. in conform ity with the instructions of the St. Louis court of appeals, Judge Horatio Wood of the circuit court yesterday held that the association of master plumbers of St. Louis was an illegal combination. It is held that it was organized to maintain and l monopolize the plumbing business in St. Louis with a view of determining prices and restricting the sale of-plumbing sup plies to master plumbers only. An order was made dissolving the asso ciation on the ground that the association carried on business in restraint of trade. Judge Wood's decision means that while the respective plumbing concerns can in dividually refuse to sell a person plumbing supplies they are permanently enjoined from refusing to sell supplies as a whole. Seven concerns are affected by the order. The case was appealed and the appelate court held that the association was an illegal combination and ordered the case remanded. % THE PACKERS' MERGER It Is Said to Be Going On, Notwlthatand- .'--'.

Weymouth, -England, April 11.The course for the first real contest between the two Shamrocks, under strict racing conditions, was altered to-day to one of thirty-four miles, instead of forty-two miles, as announced yesterday. The start ing line was off Portland,thence easterly to a -mark off Lulworth Cove and back across the mouth of Weymouth bay to a mark off Portland and thence home, twice around. The handicap allowed of the Shamiock I. was* not officially declared prior to the start, but it was understood to be ten minutes. -.... During this jockeying the Shamrock III. proved both faster and handier. The starting time was: . Shamrock III 10:00:08 Shamrock I .10:00:23 The yachts quickly squared away, set spinnakers and the new boat immediately opened out, constantly Increasing her lead from her opponent as they ran towards Lulworth Cove. In twenty minutes* run ning the challenger gained two minutes. The timings on turning the Lulworth Cove mark-were: Shamrock III , 10:40:03 Shamrock I 10:42:55 Dropping their spinnakers the boats luffed and came on the wind for the beat to windward across the bay towards Port land. A couple of long boards were sailed and the challenger going handsomely to windward through the smooth water. Be fore they had gone half way to the mark the Shamrock III. was a mile ahead and dead to windward. The breeze freshened a little and both yachts traveled at a fine pace, the chal lenger apparently reveling in the stronger wind. When they turned the mark off Portland the Shamrock III. had a lead of over six minutes on less than twelve miles' sail ing. Thence a broad, easy reach brought the boats home and on this point of sail ing the Shamrock I. held" her opponent well. The first round was finished as follows: Shamrock III . ..'.,. 11:57:18 Shamrock I '.. ....12:0?:23 The challenger's showing on the reach was distlnctlys disappointing. On the sec ond run down the wind to the Lulworth Cove mark the old boat had somewhat of an advantage by bringing up a fresher breeze and the Shamrock III. w as only able .to make a minute and a half between the marks. The Shamrock I. was fouled by a steam yacht wnen "half way through the second run to Lulworth Cove. Her spinnaker boom and the steam yacht's bowsprit were both carried away, but she escaped pother injuries and continued the race.

The anarchists and socialists are busy exploiting the situation, urging, the men to ignore the committee, and .continue the strike.
