SULU'S SULTAN IMPLICATED. Gen-. Wood on the Outbreak of the Moros. Cablegrams from Governor Taft received at the War Department contain a few further details of General Wood's battles with the Moros. Under date of November 21 General Wood reported to Governor Taft regarding the figlit. After describing the battle at Taglibl he said there were no further Indications of hostilities; that the sultan's men had been at the head and front of the fighting, and that he understood this action on the part of the Moros abro gated the so-called Bates treaty, and that there was evidence to implicate the sultan. Three days previously General Wood had reported to Governor Taft that there were about 2,000 Moros under 1'anglima llassen In the mountains against whom he was moving, and that It probably would take four or five days to clean them out. There were no indications of the spread of the trouble to the other dattos.

Ir. passing sentence upon George Ruffin, colored, found guilty of assault with a dangerous weapon, Justice Pritchard, in Criminal Court No. 1, yesterday afternoon, said the government claimed that the pris oner had been Indicted, or at least had been in trouble witli the courts about ton times, and that the defendant had acknowl edged half of this number. "The trouble with you, Ruffin," continued the justice, "is that you seem to be incor rigible. You went after your Intended victim like a Comanche Indian, with a hatchet, and it is probably due to the density of his skull rather than to iny fault of yours that you are not being tried for murder." Walter White, also colored, was the vic tim." Manager of the Lehigh Team. The manager of the Lehigh foot ball team, which plays Georgetown this after- \ noon, Is Jesse W. Underwood, second son j of Mr. Cliarles Harrison Underwood of this city.

The shoaling of the basin Is attributed to the debris washed In by currents and by tha fact that when the tugs berthed sand scows lu the basin two or three years ago their propeller wheels kept a wide channel open.
