United State Marines From'! the
Iowa Are Keeping' the Railway
Colen, Nov. 26. An armed guard
of marines from tbe United States bat
tleship Iowa has re-established the
transit across the Isthmus, and details
from the Iowa's marines are now pro
tecting each passenger train. There
has been fierce fighting at Empire sta
tion on the railroad line between Pan
ama and Colon between the insur
gents and the troops of the Colombian
government, with very heavy losses
on both sides.
Sunday morning at 10 o'clock the
schooner Clapet and a railroad barge
returned to Panama bringing 350 men
from Chorrera, being the remainder
of General Alban's expedition. Great
crowds gathered at the wharf to wit
ness the landing of the soldiers. They
were received with bands of music,
but the music sounded mournful and
the aira sounded mr like a funeral
inarch than the joyful strains of wel
come to a victorious army. General
Alban looked his usual and calm self
and acted more like a man on whose
handa time hangs heavily for want of
something to do than one coping with
grave responsibilities under trying
At 3:30 Sunday afteraoon, at the
head of several hundred men. General
Alban left Panama by train for Em
pire station, where the Liberals were
reported to be in fairly strong num
bers. His purpose was to surprise and
rout them. The train bearing these
troops was held up just before it ar
rived at Culebra station, owing to the
Liberals opening fire on Alban's ad
vance guard. Alban disembarked his
men from the train, which returned to
Panama. The fighting at Culebra last
ed from 4:40 until 9 p. m. The gov-
eminent troops advanced and the
fighting was stubborn all along the
railroad line until Empire station, a
mile and a half distant, was reached.
The Liberals retreated slowly, Alban's
men following them until the latter
eventually reached Mataching station.
Here General Alban met and confer
red with Captain Perry of the Iowa,
who was returning from Colon on an
armored train. It Is understood that
Captain Perry will not allow the rail
road to transport troops, consequently
General Alban and his men were forc
ed to push ahead on foot. It Is said
here that they thus reached San Pa
blo, where the Liberals are in force,
and that fighting is taking place there.
The Liberals are under the command
of General Lugo.
Between the stations of Culebra and
Empire over 150 killed and wounded
men could be seen along the track.
The sight was gruesome. There is no
proper Red Cross orgarfzation, and
the wounded lacked care. The Lib
erals at Colon declare the majority of
the men killed on the line to be Con
servative troops and that the rebels
are still in force along the railroad.
r Three hundred of the Iowa's ma
rines were landed at Panama to pro
tect the property of the railroad and
to insure the continuance of transit
across the Isthmus. In government
circles in Panama there is still entire
confidence in General Aiban. and it is
believed there that this Conservative
general is able to cope with the pres
ent situation and successfully over
come the apparently unsurmountable
difficulties before him. It is estimated
that the Cor?s'rvative government has
400 men at Panama. The breastworks
on the railroad bridge that leads into
Panama, as well as those erected in
side the city hav? been demolished
by the government.
Death Sentence is Sought
Indianapol's. Nov. 26. Jaiats John
son. colored, went to trial in the crim
inal court yesterday on the charge of
murdertna Joel Combs, white, in a
Haughville street recently, after there j
had been trouble between white and!
colored men. There seems little prob-1
ability that the defense will mal e any j
serious attempt to prove mm .jdo
cent, for Johnson admitted to the offi
ers after he was lodged in jail that
he shot Combs. The only real Issue
for the jury to determine was how
great his punishment should be.
Prosecutor Ruckelshaus intends to
make a strong effort to obtain a ver
dict of murder in the first degree and
a sentence of death.

Says I. S. Court of Appeal.
St. Loftis, Mo.. Nov. 26. The U. S.
court of appeals, 'n reversing the de
cisions of the United States district
court of the Indian Territory and the
Indian Territory court of appeals,
which were In favor of Rose Pryor,
who sued Samuel T. Davis, a wealthy
merchant of the Cherokee nation, for
alleged breach of promise, decided
yesterday that common law marriages
Miss Pryor, who is also a resident
of the Cherokee nation, was a mem
ber of Davis' household. As mistress
of the household was a woman known
to Miss Pryor as Mrs. Davis. Ac
cording to Davis, this woman was his
wife, with whom he had lived for up
ward of 20 years. When Rose was 21
years old Davis was alleged to have
eloped with her, but for some reason
refused to marry her. Miss Pryor
considered her affections had been in
jured to the extent of $9,500. and filed
suit for this amount and won in both
the lower courts. She alleged that
Davis had told her that he was not
legally married to Mrs. Davis and that
there was no legal objection to his
making her his wife.
In delivering the opinion of the ap
pellate court Judge Adams said:
'"Marriage is a civil contract and may
be made by any persons of different
sexf8 competent to make such con
tract. While commonly entered into
with some ceremony either civil or
religious, it may be consummated
without any ceremony. If a man and
woman, in good faith, agree to become
husband and wife, and this agreement
is followed by a consistent and notor
ious cohabitation, the relation of hus
band and wife is lawfully established."

ant Louis J. VanSchaeck of the Fourth
infantry, while scouting with a few
men of that regtment, met 150 insur
gents who had attacked and sacked
the hamlet of Siaraea near Cavite.
Upon seeing the Filipinos VanSchaeck
ordered his men to charge them. The
order was obeyed and VanSchaeck,
being mounted, reached the insur
gents 60 yards in advance of his men.
He killed three of them with his re
volver. An insurgent fired his rifle
point blank at VanSchaeck at four
paces, but missed. Lieutenant Van
Schaeck was then knocked from his
horse. He Jumped to his feet and
engaged in a hand-to-hand conflict
with the enemy, using the butt of his
revolver. He sustained two severe
wounds, one of which nearly severed
his wrist. At this point the lieuten

Illiteracy in Porto Itico Presents
Washington, Nov. 26. M. G. Brum
baugh, commissioner of education for
Porto Rico, in his annual report, says
thel l.ooo schools there, good as they
are, cannot successfully cope with the
tremendous illiteracy and the vast
army of children in need of education
in Porto Rico. There were 34,000 chil
dren in school this year, and the en
rollment next year will be 50,00 ). A
large normal school has just been
opened at Rio Piedras to meet part of
the demand for teachers. An annual
appropriation by congress of not
less than $300,000 per annum for 10
years is urged. This, the report says,
would equip the island with proper
school facilities for 150,000 additional
pupils, which with the present enroll
ment. T ould make above 66 per cent
of the school population of the island.

Sir Thomas, 'to give up when only
a pulse-beat came between us and victory."
