Trenches and Jungles Avail Nothing Against Charge., TOWN OF 0AINTI IS CAPTURED. Twentieth Infantry After a Desperate Fight Takes Filipino Stronghold—Two Americans Killed aud Dozen Wound* ed—Insurgent Loss la Fltioetl at One Hundred—Find the Americans There. MANiL^March 17.—The First battal ion of the Twentieth iufautry regiment retired from Pasig yesterday, clearing the country to Cainti, a well defended village of 700 inhabitants, five miles northwest of the foothills. The troops first encountered the rebel outposts in the dense jangle on the banks of the river. The enemy was dislodged after half an hour's fighting. The Americans advanced in splendid manner under a heavy fire until they were ready to volley the rebels from their trenches. The Litter had a great advantage and dropped a number of onr men. The Americans charged across the rice fields, makiug four advances on the enemy, who numbered 1,000 men, 500 of whom were entrenched, and in the face of a cross fire, our troops carried the town after four hours' fighting and burned the outskirts, the rebels firing from the windows and keeping up a running fire in the streets^ The Americans with drew in order to obtain more ammuni tion. The rebels lost about 100 'men and the American loss was Corporal Johnson of company and Private McAvoy of company killed. In addition a dozen Americans were wounded: The insurgents at the outposts and in the trenches beyond Caloocan fired sev eral voleys last night upon the Kansas volunteers and a part of the Fourth regulars, desiring, it is supposed, to dis cover if the American line had been thinned by the movement of General Wheaton's command. The Americans in the trenches replied warmly to the fire. H. Y. Beecher of company A of the Montana regiment was killed in the engagement. Norwegian* Snub Prince Gustaf. CHRISTIANA, March 17.—Sixty leftist members jof the storthing, the legisla tive aasettitjly of Norway, have declined an invitation to dine with-, the Swedish Crown Prince Gustaf, who is acting as regent of Sweden and Norway during the absence of King Oscar II, who is in southern France, seeking to recuperate his health. The refusal of the Norweg ian legislators to accept the hospitality of the regent is doubly significant, as emphasizing the resentment provoked in Norway by a recent saying by the crown prince in a meeting at Stock holm that he would not object to lead the Swedes against the headstrong Nor wegians, to settle the difficulties be tween them, and as the most striking indication of open enmity to Sweden shown in Christiana of late. War Board at Soutli Omaha. OMAHA, March 17.—The beef inquiry board visited the South Omaha packing houses yesterday and watched the methods employed in preparing canned meat. Testimony of witnesses was taken showing that the meats used for canning here are not of inferior grades.

The house then adjourned until Monday next, when the debate on the address will begin. Pope's Wound Refuses to Heal. LONDON, March 17.—The Rome corre spondent of the Daily Telegraph says "I learn from an unimpeachable source that there is no hope of effecting a real cure, as the pope's wound refuses to heal. There is every fear of blood poi soning, and the strength of his holiness is entirely maintained by cognac and marsala." Compromise oh German Army Bill. BERLIN, March 17.—Emperor Will iam's consent to the compromise on the army bill was obtained by Prince Hohen loheand Count von Posadowski-Wehner just before his majesty started for Friedrichsruhe in order to be present at the transfer of the remains of Prince aud Princess Bismarck to the Bismarck mausoleum.

'.v IN TWO PARTS—TUESDAY AND FKIDAY. NEGRO PRISONERS SHOT Georgia Mob Wreaks Ven geance on Nine Firebugs. VICTIMS SHOT DOWN IN JAIL. Four Are Dead and Another Dying—Two Destructive Fires of Iuceudiary Origin Excite Citizens to Point of Shooting Supposed Perpetrators In Cold Blood. Scene at the PALMETTO, Ga., Maxell 17.—Four dead negroes lie in Johnson's ware house. Beside them, groaning in agony, are live of their race, all vic tims of an assault made by white men of this neighborhood early this morn ing. This little city has had two in cendiary fires, which have almost de stroyed it, since January 1, and the ne groes which were shot down while begging for mercy lie where they fell on the blood-soaked floor of the im provised jail. The dead: Bun COTTON. HENRY BINGHAM. TIP HUTSON. ED BROWN. Dying: John Bifiby. Wounded: Clem Watts, shot in abdomen. George Taylor, wounded in thigh. Isham Brown, shot in body. John Jamison, arm fractured. The citizens are patrolling the main streets of the town and dispersing an occasional group of mattering negroes, who seem determined to get some form of revenge for the slaughter of four of their race. The scene at Johnson's warehouse, where the nine negroes were confined and which is now filled with dead and dying, is a revolting and miserable one. Blood covers the floor and blackened walls are indented with rifle shots. Wives and children of the negroes are kneeling by their 6ides in the dimly lighted room and piercing the air with cries and moans of anguish. The mob was loomposed of 150 men. Where they came from is a mystery so far as the people of' the town know. That some of the people of Palmetto, but not the better class, were in the mob goes without saying. Every face was masked and when the warehouse was reached the special guard of five men was. covered without a word. In a minute the mob was in the bigware house and the fusillade opened. The frightened negroes sent np yell after yell, begging for mercy, but it had no effect on the mob. When its work was finished the masked mob turned and quickly disappeared, as it had come, on horseback. TROUBLE AMONG STOCKMEN. Range Difficulties la Wyoming Likely to Prove Serious. CHEYENNE, March 17.—Serious range troubles are imminent in eastern Lara mie county, on the range between Sa lem and little Horse Creek, between Mark Coad and O. J. Heysham, large stockmen, who recently placed a large number of cattle in this district and a number of small ranchmen who have occupied the range for several years.

Biff Blaze In New York. NEW YOUK, March 17.—The big five story building at 354 Broadway was almost destroyed at an early hoar this morning and adjoining buildings on. either side and the Jaffray building in the rear were damaged. The fire broke out at 12:55 a. m. and within a few moments sparks and flames were belch ing forth from the three top floors. The building at 354 was occupied by James Elliott & Co., dealers in linens and bindings, the first, second and third floors A. J. Hague, the fourth floor, and Bruno, dealer in musical instru ments, the fifth floor. All the engines in the lower part of the city were called out and at first it looked as though the entire block would go. As it was, the Elliott building was gntted with almost a total loss to stock therein. The loss is estimated at $200,000, which is said to be covered by insurance. Wafcott Knock* Out Eilirardi. NEW YORK, March 17.—Joe Walcott, the colored pugilist, knocked oat Billy Edwards of Australia at the Broadway Athletic club last night in the 13th round of what was to have been a 20 round bout.

ED SPEARS, shot in nock, may die. The shooting was the result of feeling growing out of tho mayoralty contest, which was under way here. The sheriff was a warm supporter of the regular Democratic nominee, while Toler, Hart and Goslee were supporting an opposi tion candidate. Feeling ran high and early in the afternoon shots were ex changed between the sheriff and his son John, in front of the city hall, on one side, and Sergeant Goslee on the other, but no one was injured. After this both parties determined to have it out. Toler, Hart aud Qoslee were together walking south on Central avenue at about half past 5 o'clock when they met Sheriff Williams and his two sons, John and Coffey, and Ed Spears, a dep uty sheriff, in front of Letup's beer de pot. The quarrel was renewed. No one can tell who fired the first shot, hut in a moment there was a general fusillade in which 40 or 50 shots were exchanged. When it was over Toler, Hart, Goslee and Hinkle. a non-com batant, were dead, and John Williams mortally wounded. He died about an hour later. Louis Hinkle attempted to separate the combatants at the com mencement and was shot in the head and died instantly. The mayor imme diately after the shooting appointed Judge L. D. Belding chief of police, who had a posse of deputies sworn in at once. There was little factional feel ing outside of those- engaged in the shooting. Order was easily restorei and the city is now qniet. The sheriff and his son Coffey are under arrest and no further trouble is anticipated. SIX FROZEN TO DEATH.
