Rebel Keltiforcements Try In Tain to •Sto} Advance of American*—Insur gents Destroy Bridges and Impede Progress of Artillery—General Otis Es- tlmut.es American Casualties at Forty. NEW YORK, March 28.—A dispatch to the Herald from Manila Tuesday Bays: The armed gunboat Laguua de Bay at tacked the insurgents at Bulacan. Three Americans were wounded. MacArthur's division has crossed the Marilao river on a pontoon bridge and is now advancing northward. Fighting is expected this afternoon. The insurgents attacked the Amer icans last evening at Marilao, but were repulsed with severe loss. Our loss was five killed and 14 wounded. Garcia, a native general, came down from Dagupan by train with 1,000 rifie meu and 4,000 bolomen and took posi tions at Marilao. A river was between the Americans and the insurgents. The South Dakota volunteers and the Third artillery were thrown forward. The South Dakotans charged brilliantly across an open space on the east" of the railway to the edge of some woods. They lost 10 killed and 1J wounded, two mortally. Marilao was taken, with 16 prisoners. On the left the insurgents in a trench cast ytf. the river offered a stubborn re sistance. Lieutenant Critchlow, with 10 guns of the Utah battery, ani Lieu tenant Davis, with a navy Colt gun, forced 30 insurgents in a long trench on the opposite side of the river to surren der at the close quarters of 100 yards. The rest of the insurgents got out with severe loss. Otis Puahing Forward to Malolos, MANILA, March 28.—General MacAr thur's division spent the night and morning at Newcanayan, the next sta tion beyond Polo. After reconnoiter ing his front, he pushed along the rail road toward Malolos. If the statement of the 35 prisoners captured yesterday is true the main body of the enemy has retreated to Malolos. There are no more trenches to encounter, although over 30 villages, including the larger settlements of Bulacan and Gudguinto, intervene. The shelling of Paranaque was not premeditated. The turret ship Mon udnoek anchored off the town and the insurgents, emboldened by the long silence of the war ships on guard duty, opened fire on it with muskets, with the result that one man was killed and three were wounded. The Monadnock then destroyed half the town, includ ing the church. REBELS NOT YET ENTRAPPED. Strategic Move Sbil'ts Into a Pursuit aud Retreat. WASHINGTON, March 28.—The third day of the fighting north of Manila brought little of a decisive character from which war department officials could judge what the final outcome of this movement would be. In all official quarters the most intense interest pre vailed. Early in the day General Otis cabled the war department a brief dis patch summing up the situation. It disclosed that severe lighting was going on, with our forces advanced as far north as Marilao, while the insurgents under Aguiualdo were being driven back with considerable slaughter. This and the press dispatches satisfied the officials that the strategic movement of entrapping the insurgents between our lines had not been as successful as de signed and that the move had now shifted to a retreat by Aguinaldo's forces and a pursuit by our troops. The insurgent retreat toward Malolos was slow and dogged and advantage was taken of one after another of lines of intrenchmeats, the [burning of bridges and the interrupting of communications. General Otis' dispatch was sent Monday evening aud summed up the work of three days. That the lighting would proceed into the fourth day was shown by his closing sentence: "The column will press on in the morning." This refers to today. The engagement has now shaped itself so that it is looked upon as more of a chase than the execu tion of a strategic movement. With the American base advanced to Marilao and the insurgent baso forced ba.ek to Malolos, the main bodies of the ISSUED IN TWO PARTS—TUESDAY AND FRIDAY, two opposing forces are aDOut 10 or la miles apart. This could be quickly covered in a forced march under fair conditions, but it is 12 miles of innmer able difficulties and obstacles, which our troops must cover before they reach the insurgent stronghold. It is expected that the engineers with MacArthur are hastily repairing the burned bridges. This will permit the artillery to be taken forward as well as the infantry columns. It is expected that every mile of the distance to Malolos -will be con tested by the insurgents, for General Otis roports that it is a stretch of coun try cwkci: i,, renchmenta thrown n. the last ihree mouths. Our men, therefore, must advance slowly, repairing the roads as tliey go, and at the same time they must fight their way through well made rebel intrenchments. Serious as the work is there is no lack of con fidence among-officials here as to the outcome of the campaign. Malolos is the insurgent capital where the assem bly has been sitting and the insurgent government has been in operation. It represents more to the insurgents than any other place ill the Philippines, and little doubt is entertained that they will make a desperate stand there. The tactics of Aguiualdo are taking him gradually beyond the range of Admiral Dewey's guns. While the insnrgents were at Malabon on Saturday they were within a mile of the water front and easily within range of the fleet. But as they have moved northward, they have gradually moved away from the bay. Malolos is about seven miles back from the bay, although there are shallow estuaries which would permit light draught boats to get within a mile or two. The dciaiiou of the battle is beginning to attract the attention of army strate gists, as it is a very importaut element in determining the strength of the men, the supplies of ammunition and stores and the spirit of the army. The firpt blow was struck before daybreak last Saturday and the fighting continued all that day, again on Sunday and on Mon day. The reports show little night fighting except in repulsing an insur gent attack Saturday night. Judged by the standards of great battles such as Waterloo this is a long and intensely arduous engagement. But the fighting about Manila is quite different from the standard of civilized armies, as it is a running brush conflict, with only occa sional issues between organized bodies of troopa. The belief is expressed.* at the war department that the Filipinos are manufacturing the ammunition that is being used with such recklessness. The following is the dispatch received from General Otis: MANILA, March 27.—Adjutant Gen eral, Washington: MacArthur holds Marilao severe fighting today and our casualties about 40. The insurgents have destroyed bridges, which impeded progress of train and artillery. Our troops met the concentrated insurgent forces on northern line, commandod by Aguinaldo in person, and drove them with considerable slaughter. They left nearly 100 dead on the field and many prisoners and small arms were captured. The column will press on in the morn ing. OTIS. FINISH TAKING OF EVIDENCE. Committee Investigating Supreme Court Practically Completes Its Work. LINCOLN, March 28.—The examina tion of the supreme court judges and commissioners was concluded yesterday by the special committee. Mr. Sturgess made a request the auditor be requested to produce the voucher and warrant for §625, drawn Dec. 31, 1894, No. 91,481, by Judge Ner val. The papers were secured and Judge Norval took the stand and identi fied the same. He identified a check for $825 drawn by J. S. Bartley in pay ment of the warrant on the First Na tional bunk at Lincoln. The check was drawn by G. M. Bartley, deputy for Mr. Bartley, and Judge Norval said he had no knowledge before that the check had not been drawn by Mr. Bartley per sonally. Judge Norval also identified a check for $34.03, which he supposed rep resented the interest on the warrant. This was drawn Oct. 15, 1895, the date when the full warrant was paid, with interest, in the treasurer's office. Judge Norval was questioned con cerning the check. The check he sup posed was signed at the time by Mr. Bartley and he did not notice that it was issued by the treasurer's deputy. Had he noticed this he would have had some doubts about the propriety of re ceiving it. The warrant had been sur rendered to the treasurer when its face value was paid. "Is this the only instance, judge, when you received a warrant in this •Way?" "Possibly there was one other." Judge Norval said he supposed the money he was receiving from Mr. Bart ley was his private funds. There was another instance when a warrant was left with William Stull in a similar way. Mh Stull held the warrant with no evidence cf indebtedness till the in terest was paid. ........i i. XJIMA, feru, Mjartih 36.-^-Aavices ifom Bolivia say an encounter is imminent between the government forces and the federalists or insurgents. The fighting will probably take place between Oruro, where tie government reserves are sta tioned, and Coracolla, about 60 miles northwest of Oruro.

Mr. Cook has been in practical charge of the office for some time, while. Mr. Harvey has been in the field. Mr. Harvey gives a9 the cause of his resignation that he could not get the committee to agree on what he thought was a practical, businesslike and aggressive policy. He expressed an earnest desire for the success of the work of the ways and means committee and the principles of the Chicago plat form, but further than this he refused to make any statement. Charitieft and Corrections Conference* BURLINGTON, March 28.—The second Iowa state conference of Charities and Corrections is in session in this city with a large number of prominent members present from all over the state.
