In his ar.ount of the affair Corporal Fou lois says: "We marched all day, and just before dark Captain Smith took five men with him and went teros- a -valley about half a mile away to a lot of huts. As he mo-ved along. he left a man every little while to, keeip us in sight. ty. the time he had arrived within 2:0 yards of the huts, he hadI only one man with him. He was a lanky Dutchman we never could drill anything into. They moved up a lit tle ecler to the huts, when they were fired on. The captain and the man with him turned to Ii'k for cover, when the cantain sa:d he was hit. Two balls struck his camera case, whic-h he wore on his hip. This Diutchman that was with him turned around alne, and in plain sight, oral this band of over twenty insurgents iff until we could reach him. They re treated when we came tip. taking their dead with thim. We carried the captain batk tI can a distance of f.urteen miles that night. But he dieI at b o'clock the ntext night.

At 7 o'clock in the evening another detail was ready to start to Cebu in a Fai" boiat. and a few minutes before 8 o'clock the captain died, so the detail started In the boat for Cebu to report it. The 1next day, February 6. the detail came back in a launch with Maj. Leafe. our battalion com mander, and a casket. The next morning the body was taken aboard and the launch started for Cebu. Almost the last words the captain said was that Private GIdson should be recommended for a medal of honor, and he deserves it, too. And he also said that he wanted his camera sent to his wife. It will be an awful blow to her and his family. "We have two Filipino prisoners-a lIeu tenant and a spy. We caught the spy as he was coming into the town. He had some papers on him that gave us IL great deal of information about the Insurgents. The lieutenant was brought In yesterday. He is a little fellow, not as big as I am. Yester day we gave the spy a scare. We took him out nod put a rope around his neck and td him that if he didn't tell all he knew about the insurgents up he would go. Well, he told us all he knew. le told us that our missing men had passed through this town. and that one of triem was so sick that he was left with the priest of the town. I have just had the two prisoners out building hreastworks across a road in rear of the eamp in case of an attack by the insurgents. They have adopted guerri'la warfare row, and if we run across them there wil he no prisoners taken. Our com pany is just beginning to get hard luck. Our captain is the first man killed in the regiment, although quite a number have been wounded, and then losing our five men. Well, it is the fortune of war." TO AID BOER AMiULANCE SERVICE. State Department Considering Ques tion of Transmitting Funds. The State Department is taking steps to ascertain whether it can -accede to the wivhes of the Red Cross Aid Association in the matter of transmitting funds to U. S. Consul Hay at Pretoria for the extension of the Boer ambulance service, and the supply of redicines for the Boer sick and wounded. A request to that effect was preferred by Mr. Pruyn. an officer of the organization re ferred to. It differed somewhat from ap pliattons made n behalf of certain Ger man organizations in the west, the purpose in the latter case being to extend aid to the Boer widows and orphans. The department is inclined to accede to Mr. Pruyn's re quest, as it d'd in the case of the German organization's application. But it is probable that, to avoid any ap pearance of bias, the effort will be to pro vide for a disbursement of funds for the relief of the sick and wounded, regardless of nationality, during the continuance of the war. The department is now in cable correspondence with its representatives abroad on this subject. Foreign Historians Not ladorsed. The histories of the Spanish war, con tributed by the Spanish and German offi cers who participated in the events of which they wrote, have formed the sub jeet of a half dozen special publications by the office of naval intelligence. Natural ly many of these statements have brought forth strong contradictions and impeach ment from the Amerienn officers who were on the other side. Therefore Secretary Long has just Issued a circular note stat ing that the Navy Department does not indorse these views of foreign writers, but has avoided interfering with their narra tives. In the interest of accuracy, flag officers, commanding officers and others who served in the late war, are invited to submit comments or statements traversing any incorrect assertions in the publications, sueh corrections, if possible, to be based on log books and records made at the time of the particular occurrence in question. Debating the Hawaiian Bill. In the House yesterday afternoon Mr. Robinson (Ind.) criticised the provision in the Hawaiian bill continuing in force labor contracts existing in Hawaii, denouncing it as legalizing a system of wage slavery. During Mr. Robinson's remarks Mr. Knox interrupted to deny that the penai statutes regarding contract labor would be contin ued in force by the pending bill. "Those statutes," said he, "are distinctly repea'cd by this bill. The trouble with the gentle man is that he evidently has not studied the bill before the House.' Mr. Mondell (Wyo.) praised the form of government proposI by the hill. and the debate then drifted to the subject of ex pansion. Mr. Thomas (N. C.) and Mr. Williams (Miss.) made anti-expgnsion speeches. Mr. Boute'l (111.) replied to Mr. Williams in the concluding speseh of the day. At 5 o'clock the House adjourned. Disappearing District Boundaries. To the Editor of The Evening Star: I am told that many of the milestones placed on the lines bordering the District of Columbia by the engineers who estab lished those lines under the direction of General Washington have been. removed un lawfully. I have only seen two of them. One, at the north corner, was, when I was quite a young man, pointed out to me by the late Thomis Simpson, sr. It stood a short d-stance from the railroad station at Sifver Spring in a northeasterly direction. The other stone I saw some twelve years back in the village of Takoma. It was then very much defaced-so much so that the figures cut upon it were riot legible. These boundary p.inters ought tobe rep'aced by mo're sulstantial and durable ones and a severe lenaltv imtosed on any one de facing or in any way injuring thiem.

Leglilation Not Neeessary. In a communication forwarded to Senato McMillan, chairman of the Senate Distric committee, the Commissioners expressed the opinion that there is no present neces sity for the passage of Sepate bill 454' to provide for the education of the blin and for other purposes.

Demand That Status of Sehool Eosed Be Clearly Degmed-Other Matters Considered. There was a special meeting of the East Washington Citizens' Association last night at Baum's Hall, which was called by Mr. T. W. Smith. president of the association, to consider questions deemed to be of pub lic Importance. Several communications from other associations were read and the report of the executive committee was sub mitted. Among the communications received was one from the Columbia Historical Society. In this letter the society offered to take charge of the records of the association, for the preservation of the important business recorded. This letter, as well as others, was referred to the executive committee. The Public Schools. The school question was discussed by several members of the association. A let ter relating to the proposed change in the school system was received from the North Capitol and Eckington Citizens' Associa tion. The secretary stated In the letter that he had been instructed to ask the sev eral citizens' associations to urge upon Congress favorable action upon the pro posed legislation. "If the report of the Senate Investigating committee is not adopted," stated the sec retary, "it is probable the present system will continue, and also that the teachers who had the courage to state facts before the committee may have to suffer." Mr. Appleton P. Clark. Jr., acting chair man of the committee on schools and li braries, submitted a report. After setting -tut the contents of the bill, the committee states that its members are of the opinion: "First-That it Is desirable to have - the status of the school board more clearly de fined than under present conditions, and that the full authority for control of the public schools should be placed In their hands. The school board, as it exists, is an advisory board and has only such powers as the Commissioners may delegate to it which seem rather uncertain. The line of demarcation between the duties and re sponsibilities of the superintendent of achools and the trustees does not seem to be clearly defined. Appointment of Trustees. "Second-That the trustees of the public schools should be appointed by the Com missioners of the District instead of by the President, as provided by this amendment. The Commissioners are in a better post tion by reason of their more intimate local acquaintance to make the best selections for members of the school board. The President may have practically no knowl edge of local affairs. and without the time to give due consideration to what to him would be quite unimportant appointments. "Third-That the board of trustees should consist of at least eleven members, one tor each school division, and they should re side in the divisions for which they are ap pointed, and should have been residents of the District of Columbia for the five years immediately preceding their appointment, and s-hould not hold any other office under the United States or the District govern ment. "Our public school system comes in closir touch with the people than any other branch of the government. It is very de sirable not to centralize the power, but to spread it out and have representatives scat tered through the various neighborhoods of a community, so as to bring to the central board a true knowledge of the various phases of educational and social conditions, and thus have the knowledge to properly provide for the needs of each section. We believe that this cannot be accomplished better than by purely local representation of comparatively small divisions, by trus tees who are residents of the sections they represent. "Fourth-Should Congress deem it advis able to attach some compensation to the of lice of trustee, we are of the opinion that the amount should not be as large as stated in the amendment; it should not exceed $300 per annum for each trustee.' For a school board it is desirable that the place should truly seek the man and not the man the place, and it fills us with apprehension if the compensation should be large enough to create undue striving for the appoint ments from a financial standpoint." Amendment Proposed. Mr. Tracy L. Jeffords suggested in the form of an amendment that the word "male" be inserted before the word eleven in the report. This, he explained, would mean that the board of trustees should be composed entirely of men. Several members were soon upon their feet to protest against the adoption of the amendment. It was their opinion that the mothers of the children should have a say in the matter of schools. Mr. Jeffords then suggested that the amendment be voted down in order that he might move thatthe word "female" be inserted. The associa tion voted simply to permit the amendment to lie on the table. Another amendment requiring that the trustees be citizens of the United States was accepted and the report was adopted. Telephone Question Discussed. When President Smith called the atten tion of the association to the question of telephones Mr. Tracy L. Jeffords moved that the president of the association ap point a committee of three to appear be fore the Senate subcommittee at a hearing soon to be held and that the association re affirm the resolutions passed two years ago, which were read, as follows: "First. That the charges for telephone service in the District should be lowered and unlimited service furnished. "Second. That we will use all reasonable efforts to effect this result. "Third. That we believe the telephone service in the District should be under municipal control. "lFourth. That we favor legislation and other action for the Introduction Into the District f any competing telephone com pany. whilh is souni financially and fair In its character and methods, and which will give sufficient guaranty to properly and promptly repair streets where it dis turb's them, and the franchise of which shall provide that It shall continue in busi ness for a tertm of not tess than ten years and shall not dIspose of Its franchise of rights in any manner during that time, and simit not impose any unnecessary restric tions upon sub~scrib~ers. and that during sail perliod the telepho~ne rates shall not Ibe raised or the character of the service in any way impaired.'' The motion was adolited. Charities and Corrections. Rev. W. Et. Parsons, chairman of the committee on charities and corrections, ad dressed the ass-eciation. The question was l'rought up by a report of the commIttee of the beard of trade, recently made. con cerning the jail, workhouse and alms house. The report recommends the ulti mate removal of these institutions from their present sites, together with potlter's field and smallpox hospital, and other tnlings that are objectionable. Mr. S. WV. Curriden said he thought it was a gross Injustice to the people of East Washington to continue these institutions in their present locations. They prevent the extension of Massachusett~s and Geor gia avenues. He told of a conversation that occurred between a real estate dealer and a prospective purchaser. The latter was a comparative stranger In East WVashington, and when he learned that the buildings in sight of Lincoln Park were prisotns a pros pectIve deal was declared off. After fur ther remarks the report was adopted. Before adjournment Mr. N. 'I. Ordway moved that the association make an effort to have the President appoint an East Washington man as a member of the board of Commissioners. During the course of his remarks he said the present members of the board seemed to be good men, although he would not agree that all tbe colored people and certain foreignets are thoroughly bad. The resolution was adopted. At the close of the meeting President Smith appointed B. B. Earnshaw, V. Bald win Johnson and Tracy L. Jeffords mem ber's of a committee to appear before the Senate subcomamittee and take part in the telephone hearing.

Abolition of-Meard4 of Beacea by First ChaurebDisapprovwe- Dele gates to General Assembly. The sessions of ths spring meeting of Washington city presbytery, which were held at the Presbyterian church on 15th street between I and K streets northwest, beginning Monday afternoon and continu ing through yssterday, were brought to a close. in the afternoon. A good deal of business was dispatched. The committee on temperance, through the chairman, Rev. Dr. Easton, presented a report which urged greatsr attention on the part of the churches to this great reform, urging the President to prevent the importation and sale of liquor in the Philippine Islands and the enactment of pending legislation which would do away with the army canten. iThe report was adopted, with the exo.p tion of the resolution relative to the army canteen, and action on the latter was de ferred until tha next meeting of the pres bytery. The action of the congregation of the First Presbyterian Church in abolishing the board of deacons was the subject of a good deal of debate. It appeared that an appeal was taken from this action to th session of the church, and, in the opinion of the presbytery, that body Improperly laid the appeal upon the table. It was explained that at that time all the deacons but one had resigned and the mambers refused to elect another board. It was, therefore, necessary to adopt this course in order to carry on the affairs of the board. The presbytery directed that as soon as, in the judgment of the session of the church, the time Is opportune the action declaring the board of deacons abolished be reversed. Delegates Chosen. Delegates to the ganeral assembly, which meets at St. Louis in May, were elected as follows: Ministerial-Principals, Rev. C. Alvin Smith and Rev. John Van Ness; alternates, Rev: Asa S. Fiske, D. D., and Rev. W. H. Stone. Lay-Principals, Mr. John Leetch and Mr. R. L. Ewing; alternates, Mr. A. B. Garden and Mr. Theodore F. Sargent. The educational committee reported six candidates for the ministry, as follows: E. W. Snow, H. W. Snow, Peter R. Lee, W. E. McBarth, W. F. Doty and J. McD. A. Lacy. The presbytery Indorsed the act of the church erection committee in approving the application of the Neelsvilla church for a loan to erect a chapel at German town, Md. A request that the privilege of taking up offerings in the churches of the presbytery for the construction of a monument to Rev. Francis -cKemis, at old Rehoboth, Md., was granted. A resolution was adopted that the rail road companies and authorities of Mary land be petitionad to use their efforts to prohibit Sunday base ball playing in that state by young men from this city. The thanks of the presbytery were ex tended to Rev. Mr. Grimke, the pastor, add the congregation of the 15th street church for their hospitality. The presbytery then adjourned. The next stated meeting will be held in Kensipgton, Md. WORKING SATISFACTORILY. The Surrender Section of the Extradi tion Treaty With Mexico. That section of the extradition treaty be tween the United States and Mexico which permitted each-of the governments party to the treaty to surender its own citizens charged with ct-imes committed in the terri tory of the other is working satisfactorily, according to reports to the State Depart ment. Fears were entertained at first that se rious abuses might follow the inauguration of the new practice, and very recently the Texas people were disposed to complain be cause the goverrment of Mexico refused to honor their application for .the surrender of the Mexican, Gonzales, charged with hav ing committed murder in Texas. As a matter of fact, the officials here were inclined to believe -that the Texans had failed to make out a-good prima facie case. However, the ill feeling on that scare seems to have dimnished, as is evidenced by the following letter received by Solicitor Penfield of the Department of State. who has to do with these extradition matters, from R. W. Dow, sberif of Maverick coun ty, Tex.: "I beg to say to You that the extradition of Antonio Torres, athe Mexican charged with murder in Uvilde feounty, Texas, was granted by the governor of Mexico on the 24th instant. It is belieted by law-abiding people along the Telas-Uexican border that this case, coupled with 'the delivery of Mrs. Rich by this govefnment to -the Mexican authorities at El Palko, f'exas; will do more for the protection of life and property along the Texas-Mexican frontier than could in any other way be aecoMplished. "It is believed that the Mexican govern ment will carry out in good faith the prece dent set up by our government in the Rich case, and believing, as I do, that your de cision In that cast has been of great benefit in this section of the country, I feel it my duty to make this report to your depart ment." &UCTION SALES OF REAL ESTATE, &c.
