Reported Dead Notes of the Day.
Two rebels killed and no casualties
among the Government forces, was
the mortuary record of yesterday's
battle.
The one great object of the rebel
forces is to escape. All thoughts of
fighting, except to defend themselves
from attacking parties, is the general
disposition displayed by the natives.
They are using every effort to get
through the passes to Kalihi where
they can scatter and be out of reach
of the Government troops.
Wilcox and his men were the ones
dealt with yesterday in the Manoa
Valley. Nowlein has disappeared for
the time being and the natives under
Wilcox say that they have not seen
him since Sunday.
Wednesday morning dawned on a
tired, leg-weary band of soldiers.
There had been little sleep, owing to
the call to duty in the night just as
they had settled down for a good
rest. Company ''B," on Punchbowl,
had a cold weary night of It, as
did the men of the other com
panies in that section, but every
man was ready for such action as the
day might call for. The Sharpshoot
ers, weary of doing guard duty, asked
to be sent to the front, and, under
Captain Kidwell, were sent to the
scene of action at Manoa Valley to act
in conjunction with Company A under
Captain Bmitn. Captain Murray ana
his- band of Citizens' - Guards were
sent to the Walmanalo pass to en
counter Nowlein's men, if possible.
Not a trace of a righting rebel could
be found in that direction. -
After the cessation of hostilities In
the Manoa valley shortly after sunset,
the Sharpshooters returned- to town,
and Captain Zeigler's company was
sent to relieve Captain Smith ,in the
valley. Lieutenants King and Coyne
were sent to occupy positions in Pauoa
Valley, Lieutenant King holding the
advanced position. As evening ap
proached, Lieut. Coyne was ordered
to go up the valley beyond Lieut.
King and occupy the junction of
of the roads by which the rebels
coujd reach Nuuanu Valley or the
Pall.
In the city the continued arrest
kept things lively. Those added to
the lists were W. H. Daniels, Paoo,
J. H. Schnack, Sam Kaluahine, NIolo,
James Durrell, Henry West, Makia,
N. Peterson, W. K. Hutchinson, J.
Brown, Fred Harrison, H. Kaaha,
George Makalena, Kuakauia, J. K.
Kaunamano, Manuel Keis, Lewis J.
Levey, Antone da Rega, a young Por
tuguese boy who was charged with dis
tributing arms, and J.Badin. Mr. Levy
made strong objections to being put in
durance vile, all to no effect. Mr.
Harrison, hearing of his possible ar
rest, told the officials that he would
be on hand when they desired his ser
vices. The arrests among the hack
men gave the general fraternity an
unpleasant 'who next" feeling, and
one was heard asking as to the
fare of the prisoners that he might
know what to take with him it he
were called to go.
Laura Lane, a sistsr of Lot Lane,
was stopped while driving toward the
Manoa valley and taken to the sta
tion. She had a long rope and a quan
tity of poi which bhe said she was
taking to the house of a friend. Mr.
J. Colburn'd boy was also stopped
while going in the patne direction.
He carried a note which read, ''Why
don't you come to town to see us?"
The guards tearful of the possible
purport of the note, turi-ed the boy
back to town. It wa? generally
thought that friends of Wilcox were
eudeavoring to reach him to give in
formation of the situation in town.
The Cabinet held a meeting in the
morning at which it was reported that
a decision was reached to detxin the
Alameda until the rebellion ha.l heen
completely squelched. Minister King
denied this rumor.
The biggest scare of the day, and in
fact of the whole rebellion thus far,
was caused bv the report of the ad
vance of a party of natives over the
King street bridge. It furnished a
good practice drill for the guards at
the Police Station.
The welcome news brought by the
Ke Au Hou, of quiet on the other isl
ands, together with the reports of suc
cess broaght in by the men from Ma
noa Valley, gave an increased feeling
of confidence among the officials, and
throughout the city there was a gen
eral air of settling down to a night of
comparative rest. "
- The disposition of the Government
forces last night at midnight was as
follows: Company B fit the Execu
tive Building - Company C at Jndl
clary Building Company A returning
from the field; Comcany Fat Manoa;
Company D marching to meet Wil
der on: Tantalus; Lieutenant King,
with part of Company K Is at Pauoa
Valley. ;,and Lieutenant Coyne is
march in g further up the valley toward
Tan tains.
BATTLE IK MANOA.
One Han Killed and Thrca Pris
oners Taken in the Valley.
About 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon
word was telephoned to the military
Authorities that the rebels had been
surrounded in Manoa Valley and that
a lively battle was in progress.
As scon as possible, orders; were
given to send reenforcements and be
fore long about thirty men were, on
their way to assist the sharpshooters.
A field piece was sent along also.
The fighting was going on at the
head of the valley near the falls. .The
rebel party consisted of Wilcox's men.
They were hiding in the brush and
were returning fire for fire' until after
cannon arrived. The gun was placed
In the bullock pen and a shell sent in
the direction of the rebel camp. The
aim was too low to. do any dam
age but the loud report scared , the
natives who immediately took to the
trail leading to Pauoa Valley. Their
forms could be seen between openings
in the trees.
The Government soldiers could not
do much execution from their position
but they succeeded in killing one
man a half-Portuguese; and wounded
another. Two prisoners' were taken
also, one of whom Is Charles Barto.
They were brought into town.
One of the prisoners stated that
Carl Widemann was killed yesterday
while the shooting was going on. He
claims that he saw the young man
fall and is positive that he has made
no mistake. " x - V"'"'-'-'
Another prisoner stated that Tom
Walker was killed also, but some one
stated last night that Walker was seen
at his home yesterday morning.
The soldiers at Manoa are of the
opinion that Kowlein and his men are
in tne Paioio valley, ills followers
are said to be members of the ex
queen's guards. They are all trained
soldiers but they have never been en-
