At ths Junction with the Clngalon road th* vanguard cauie without warning upon a strong Spanish entrenchment. Suddenly the enemy rained a deadly Are upon th* Americans, killing two men ot the Astor Battery, First Sergeant Holmes and Second Sergeant Crimmlns, and one Minnesota Waa, Private Patterson, at the same tlm» wounding a score ot others. Sergeant Crimmlns, after he was shot, atarted for hi* gun, fired It, and dropped dead beside th* piece. The Astor Battery was forced to fall bask from the murderous Ore temporarily, leaving two guns. But the reserve*, under Colonel Ovenshtne, came up promptly and with their support the Aston charged the enemy with only revolver* for weapon*, quickly regained their guns and put them Into action again with increased valor. Th* Spaniards wars than shortly put to Sight. The following Is th* list of casualties In the Astor Battery: Killed SI. B. Holmes, First Sergeant , V. Cremtna, Second Sergeant. Wounded XL H.

Th* Spanish Loss Th* Spanish loss Is estimated at not less than 200, including both killed and wounded and In the neighborhood of 8000 captured. Vast quantities of military and naval stores were seised. The casualties on the American side were confined to the land side. Not a man on the fleet was Injured. Through flve lines of entrenchments ex tending for two miles, the enemy was driven In a panic to the walled portion ot Manila. This the Spaniards surrendered. As the Stars and Stripes were raised over tha official residence of the Governor, Cap tain-General Jaudenes burst Into tears, and his suite hid their faces ln their hands. Almost Impregnable fortifications had been Stormed, Including four blockhouses and Innumerable street blockades. All were carried with the pluck and valor char acteristic of the Americans. In General Greene's brigade the Colorado and Califor nia volunteers and the Eighteenth regulirs drove the Spaniards back ln panio. East and West vied In deeds of bravery. Beginning the Battle The soldiers knew on Friday night that an attack was to be made. The reveille was sounded at 4 o'clock. Th* troops arose singing and cheering. For weeks they had been encamped In swamps or lying in ditches filled with wa ter, exposed to tropical rains. They had waited patiently for the order to attack and when it cam* the demonstrations were unanimous along the lines. A heavy rain set in as tha troops left camp. The men marched two miles ln mud ever shoe tops to the entrenchments. Each carried two days' rations and 150 car tridge*. The American entrenchments extended from the beach on the left 1500 yards in a .northeast line, terminating ln a rice 'swamp. Th* ground waa covered with wa ter, bamboos and rank vegetation. The enemy's trenches varied from 300 to 100 yards. The one In front was 500 yards. To tb* east of the beach is tne Manila read and I*oo yard* away Is th* Pasay read. Both road* passed through ths Unes Into th* city. Almost Impassable swamps It* between the road*. General Greene's brigade occupied the ttft from the beach across th* Manila road to the swamp. General McArthur'■ bri nd* bad th* right on both side* of th* Fast? road. Directly in front of General FRIEND OF THE SICK SOLDIERS Kiss Helen Gould, Who Is Devoting Her Time and Money to Aiding ln tha Care of the Sick at Montauk Point McArthur was a Spanish battery and a blockhouse. The troops arrived ln position on the lints at 8:30 a.m. Four battalions of re serves held the Pasay road and the general reserve, five full battalions back of Gen eral Greene held the territory between the beach and the Manila road. The monitor Monterey steamed slowly across the bay ln front of Manila. The flagship Olympla. the cruiser Raleigh and the gunboat Petrel followed. The enemy had two lines of entrench ments tn front of General Greene. Back of these lines was Rio Cingalon, a small stream. Next beyond was the powder magazine, an ancient fortress, mounting one six-Inch gun. Immense sand walls and trenches surrounded the fortress on the south and seaward sides. General Anderson was ln command of the division, which was composed of two bri gades. Suddenly, at 9:80 a.m., the Olympla open ed Are with her starboard five-Inch guns at a range of 4000 yards. The troops cheered and waved their hats. The first shots fell short, but again and again the guns roared and the projectiles fell closer and closer to the enemy's stronghold. The Raleigh and Petrel, covered with fhe national colors, tried their five-Inch and slx-lnch guns at 3500 yards. Shell after shell burst ln the fort and drove the Span lards panic-stricken toward Manila. Every shot was marked by debris hurled high ln the air. Soon the enemy deserted the trenches In front of General Greene, but ran oft to the right Into the bamboo swamps. Then they began guess work. Two shots from the battery ln the magazine was the only re ply given to the Beet's Are. Both were 300 yards short. The gunboat Callao and the launch Bar celo advanced within 1000 yards and began sending a deadly hall from their rapid-fire and machine guns. By this time the fort ress was deserted and tho fleet was sig naled to cease firing. Orders to Advance Then the orders to advance were given. The Colorado troops formed in column with their flag flung to the breese and dashed Into the Rio Cingalon, wading waist deep. The Callfornlans followed. The enemy's Mausers began to crack in the bushes ln front and on the left, but the shooting was wild. The Colorado men ran up lo the fort and took possession Private Phoenix climbed to the ramparts and pulled down the Spanish flag, and as he was raUlng the American standard was shot dead. Thereupon Sergeant Richard O. Holmes seized the flag and ran it up on the pole. The Colorados, Callfornlans and the Eighteenth Infantry drove the Spaniards through the streets of Malate. The enemy threw away guns and ammunition In the flight. Their trenches were filled with Mauser cartridges. The troops followed them, catching the Luneta battery and chasing the enemy into the walled city. General Greene passed around the walled city and took Benodo, on the north side of the Paslg river, where he estnbllsheTl his headquarters. Meanwhile General Mac- Arthur's brigade, over on the right wing, was having the severest kind of fighting. Two of the igurs of the Utah battery opened on Blockhouse No. 14 and soon knocked It Into splinters. Then the troops advanced toward the city, the Astor battery ln the lead, and as previously de scribed had the hottest fighting of the day at the Junction of the Cingalon road. The Spanish soon retreated, and General Mac Arthur entered the city and establish ed headquarters In Malate. The insurgents followed up the advance of our troops. An attempt was made to keep them out of the city, but it was found Impossible. Thousands entered In com panies, took possession of empty houses and began pillaging. Malate and Ermita, the fashionable resi dence district, were deserted. The troops scattered and stopped the Insurgents pil laging as far as possible, but complaints continue to come in. Spain's Foolishness MADRID, Aug. 19, 5 p.m.—The govern ment has resolved to Insist that the cap itulation of Manila after the signing of the protocol shall have no effect ln the pence negotiations unfavorable to Spain. In any event, the government holds that the oapltulatlon having been signed by the commander of the town does not entail the surrender of the whole of the Philip pines. All tho Indications are that the peace ne gotiations will be prolonged. The oppos ing factions are redoubling the agitation for convoking the Cortes, and It Is said that Senor Sagasta begins to hesitate, al though he shares the opinion of Duke Al modovar da Rio, the Foreign Minister, as to the Inconvenience Involved In the meet ing of the Cortes and a series of debates during the discussion of peace terms. It la supposed the Cortes will meet after the ' election to the Councils-General, about the | middle of next month. LOS ANGELES HERALD* SATURDAY MORNING, AUGUST 20, 1898 ...

A NEW FOREIGN POLICY MADE NECESSARY BY THS WAR WITH SPAIN EXPERTS IN CONFERENCE One Thing Agreed on Is the Early Construction of tha Nicar agua Canal Associated Frees Special Wire SARATOGA, N. V., Aug. 19— The'natlon al conference on the foreign policy of the United States was opened here today with an address by Henry Wade Rogers of Chi cago, chairman of the Committee of ar rangements. Mr. Rogers says that the conference was called to consider some of the momentous questions In the history of the republic. He spoke of the war and re turned prayerful thanks for the peace now at hand. While peace has arrived, he said, that there were many serious prob lems to be considered. Ho referred,' t» the close friendship be tween America and Great Britain, which would probably lead to International arbi tration and finally to universal peace. The speaker spoke favorably of the Nicaragua Canal, which, he argued, should be built and controlled by the United States gov ernment. The canal will shorten the dis tance by water to San Francisco by 10,000 miles. A reference to the trip of the bat tleship Oregon elicited hearty applause. Mr. Rogers said that the principal prob lem before the present conference was that of territorial expansion, on which many distinguished men of national reputation hold widely different views. Indirectly, he referred to the positions respectively held by the expansionists and the antl expanslonlsts. Whether we should annex the colonies that are loot to Spain, or to control them by carpet-bag government is a problem that has become the most serious one to Americans, who should ponder wisely over It in order not to make a mistake. Commercial Interests urge that we should adopt a colonial system, ssld Mr. Rogers, but business slone ought not to control our conduct. The question of the Nicaraguan Canal was taken up and Warner Miller of New York took the platform. He briefly spoke of his persistent advocacy of the canal. Events of the past three months demanded the immediate construction, and he be lieved all Americans were now universally In favor of It, as also all of Europe. He spoke of the numerous surveys made of every proposed route to pierce the isthmus, and said the route by the way of the Nicaragua Canal has received the greatest consideration, as both feasible and desirable. Mr. Miller gave the history of the Nicar agua route, beginning with the administra tion of General Grant down to the present time. Had not the canal treaty been block ed by antagonistic legislation ln years ago the canal would have already been built and now ln actual operation. Financial distress for a number of years also hin dered tne work. Distinguished Senators have for years urged the building of the canal, but Congress did not act favorably upon It. The Nicaragua route Is looked up on as the most feasible and far more prefer able than that of Panama. The canal .can be built for from »100,000/XK> h» 1140, --000,000, as shown by statements made by ex perts. Is the canal desirable? That the canal would reduce the distance between New York and San Francisco ten thousand miles is alone a sufficient answer ln the affirmative. The railways and canals of the country have made all sections accessible, and available, and have Increased the wealth of the United States. Railroads have been built ln advance of the population and have carried emigrants to the West ern plains, where there Is now a teeming population developing the broad areas. Mr. Miller referred to several canals that have materially aided tn opening up the country. The Nicaragua canal would alone save us ten thousand miles, and would be a igreat outlet for those states on the Pacific Coast. The continent Is grid-Ironed with transcontinental roads, but these do not alone afford the advantages that could be secured by a canal. It Is a question of oheap transportation, and the Nicaraguan canal would solve the problems. Within ten years atter the completion of the canal the pop ulation of the I'acltlc States will have In creased to ten millions. One of the best results of the Spanish-American ,war is that it will compel the building of the Nic aragua canal. The entire morning session was devoted to a discussion ot the Nicar aguan canal. The annexation problem was taken up at the afternoon session. Carl Schurz of New York spoke at length, giving the views of the anti-expansionists, whose cause he ad vocated. He was opposed by Judge Gross cup of Chicago, who is an earnest expan sionist. Judge Grosscup said ln part: "I am among those who believe that the people of the United States without breach of faith to the promises of our past or se rious danger to the expectation of our future, hold permanently all, or a portion, of the territory that has been occupied by our troops during the progress of the war. I am ready to go a step further and assert that the obligations of our duty toward mankind, and especially toward the partic ular peoples who have been drawn within the sphere of our operations and to the future usefulness of oruselves, demand that we should permanently retain so much of these captures of war as are needed to round out the moral purposes for which It was inaugurated and the greater destiny on which as a nation we are about to enter. "Four months ago the eyes of the natton were habitually turned inwardly upon it self. The industries and commerce of this continent monopolized us. Our policies were the policies of America alone—run ning too frequently, particularly ln their financial and commercial phases, Into a thing apart from the corresponding sys tems of the world. The smoke of battle has led us out from these confining boundaries to the mountain spur we now occupy. There Is moral elevation In a wide outlook. As a people, we for the first time look clearly over the empires of the earth without the sacrifice of righteous ness or honor, but as the ministers of both, the Invitation comes to take our share In the opportunities and responsibilities of this wider Held. The Immediate question, the one that by Its solution will either bring us ln or bar us otTt of this larger national sphere, relates* to the permanent occupation of our Spanish conquests. The true question Is not whether Porto Rico, Hawaii and the Philippines are lntrlnslcal- ly worth the responsibilities Incurred by ownership, Whether their commerce and resources will counterbalance the new dangers that their acquirement would la traduce Into our political system, for I see behind thera In fhe horizon toward which we are heading, looming up from the Pa cific tn mountainous Interest and oppor tunity, against which the outlines of the Philippines are but a handspeck. some thing more than islands, nothing less tban a continent. "Within Asia lies the Interest and oppor tunity that by its largenese dwarfs every other prospect. I favor the acquisition of Porto Rico, partly because the moral pur pose of this war demands that It should no longer be a political plague spot ln the otherwise purified Caribbean sea. but chleflv because It is at the gateway to the Caribbean, a sea that, when the commerce of Asia is fully developed and the Nic araguan canal opened, will, from both a naval and commercial view, become the most Important water on the face of the globe I favor the acquisition of Hawaii and I favor the acquisition of tho Philip pines, or as much of them as may be needed, solely because ln the new career of commercial activity upon which, 1 trust, we are about to enter, we need clear across the Pacific a line of naval stations and home ports, stations In every sense our own, carrying under the soil the American title and over It the American flag. "I favor the retention of the Philippines, or at least a part of ffiem, that they may stand as a tangible, continuing demonstra tion of the physical presence of the repuTi llo in Asiatic waters. The value of these conquests is not ln their territory, nor their resources, separately considered, but In the fact that as an entirety they con stitute a chain precisely adapted to the expanded sphere ln which we are to enter. I care little for the links individually, but everything for the chain that will hence, forth hold us to our opportunities ln the tar east." Judge Grosscup declared that In his Judg ment the most Interesting and Important of our future foreign policy was involved In the immediate future of Asia. "The break up ln the current of Asiatic life Is at hand," he declared, "and the gates are opening upon a market the full magnitude of which has not yot dawned upon the world. The far-seeing statesmen of Eu rope appreciate the situation and far-see ing America must soon compass It." In conclusion, Judge Grosscup declares that the course of the nation was clear. If the American people are earnest In their purpose to participate in the development of the east, he said, they need these Islands as strategic points and as an Integral part of the naval force. Without a naval dis play, he asserted, the country can never secure Its proper share ln the commerce of the east or protect It after It Is ob tained. William Dudley Bull of Indiana tonight made a lengthy and strong address tn favor of territorial expansion. Congressman Frederick H. Gillett of Massachusetts made an address on "The Immortality of Prtse Money." CUTTING DOWN EXPENSES Steps Taken to Save Money Wherever Possible WASHINGTON. Aug. 19.—Retrench ment ln nearly all branches of the army is following close upon the cessation of hos tilities. Notably is this the case in tho ordnance, quartermaster and engineer bu reaus, where the need of the supplies re quired and the men employed for the exi gencies of war no longer exists. In the ordnance bureau the force at the various arsenals is to be reduced in all cases where this can be accomplished without detri ment to the service. The quartermaster's department is dis pensing as rapidly as possible with such ot the transports as were chartered and for which there Is now no necessity. Consid erable labor Is Involved ln this work, as a board of survey has to be appointed to de termine the various inclde'ntal questions that arise pending the return of the vessels to their owners. In the engineer's department the serv ices of electricians, mechanics and labor ers engaged ln the work of harbor and river mine defenses and of boatmen employed to patrol the adjacent waters to warn ap proaching craft of their danger also are being discharged as rapidly as Is consistent with the good of the service. THE NEW WARSHIP Wisconsin Patriots Preparing for the Launching Ceremonies MILWAUKEE, Aug. 19.—At a meeting of the Battleship Commission at the Pflster Hotel all the members, consisting of Sena tor Stebblns of Waunakee, Dr. Reynolds of Geneva Lake and Julius Beyer of Milwau kee, were present. It was expected that the committee would at fhla time seleot the young lady who Is to stand sponsor for trie battleship Wisconsin In the launohlng next November. The commission, however, ad journed without coming to any decision. Candidates are coming in from every quarter, and the members find they will have a heavy task on their hands. The character of the present which the State will make to the ship, when she goes into commission was discussed, and It was de cided not to present a library, as has been suggested, but to select the usual conven tional silver service. In addiiton to this, however, the State will give the battleship a handsome bronze badger, the symbol of Wisconsin, with the State motto of "Forward" placed over it. The committee will meet the last Friday in September to decide who shall christen the ship. THE MINERS' STRIKE Non-Union Workman Narrowly Escape Lynching PAN A, 111., Aug. 19.—A crowd of fully 800 excited miner:, and citizens were about the city building last night when Ed Jones and James Palmer, held ln heavy bonds on five charges of assault with deadly weapons with Intent; to murder tho miners on the highway at Sprlngside Mine, today were released on ample security. For a time In dications pointed to serious trouble. Jones and Palmer were conveyed to and from the court room in a buggy by Operator Over holt of the Sprlngside Mine, and after be ing released, headed by Messrs. Overholt, Peterbaugh and Qulgg they marched through the crowd amid the hisses of the miners and citizens. There were many murmurlngs and open threats. Cries of "Hang them," "Brlngt a rope," "Swing them up," were made and ot one time there was a rush towards the buggy, which was surrounded by threatening men. Wiser counsel and cool Judgment prevailed and the prisoners were Anally conveyed back to the shaft unharmed. Jones' and Pal mer's trial will occur at the August term.
