WASHINGTON, August 28. A dis
patch has been received at the War
Department from General Otis under
date of August 26, stating that Dato
Mundi of Zamboanga attacked and de
feated the insurgents there on that
date, killing thirty of them. The dis
patch, as given out at the War Depart
ment, is much confused and the offi
cials have been unable to ascertain
who Dato Mundi is. It is thought,
however, that he is one of the smaller
chiefs. The text of the dispatch is as
MANILA, August 26 Adjutant
General, Washington: Dato Mundi at
tacked and defeated the insurgents,
killing thirty up to this date. Under
the Spaniards he governed the entire
southwestern part of Mindanao Island.
He visited General Bates at Jolo to
give adhesion to the United States.
Bates returned him to a small island
near Zamboanga, when he requested
permission to drive out the insurgents,
but was told that troops would be sent
to Zamboanga soon. The insurgents
there offered several weeks ago to
turn over the city on promise of sur
render in case Aguinaldo is successful
in Luzon. The proposition was de
clined. Dato Mundi is an able man,
educated abroad, thoroughly loyal to
American interests. Bates leaves on
August 30th to place troops in Sulu
Islands; will soon place troops at Zam
boanga and Isabela,the naval station
in Basilon Islands. OTIS."

General Wheeler has been ordered to
report to General Mac Arthur. He will
be given command 'of General Funs
ton's brigade, which Colonel Liscum
has commanded temporarily. General
Wheeler will proceed to San Fernando
tomorrow, after having spent a week
in energetically visiting the lines.
General Wheeler said to a represen
tative of the Associated Press: "I am
much pleased with the . situation. I
think that when Major General Otis
gets more troops here he will make
rapid progress. The country is more
favorable for military operations than
I supposed. The impression that the
country is unhealthy is wrong."
The railroad to Angeles will be re
stored within a week and General
MacArthur will advance his headquar
ters to that place.

CAPE HAYTIEN, Hayti, August 23.
News from the Republic of Santo
Domingo shows that General Peppin,
returning from succoring Santiago,
was defeated by the Dominican revolu
tionists and obliged to retreat on Mon
te Christi. Mao and a section of
Guayacanes have declared in favor of
the revolution, and the revolutionists
are massing in those places, cutting
off communication with Monte Christi.

SHIPS FOR PACIFIC.
Squadron of Evolution May Come to
WASHINGTON, August '27. The
cruiser Newark is due to arrive at San
Francisco within a week. The cruiser
Marblehead, waich like the Newark,
went around into the Pacific by the
Straits of Magellan, is expected also to
reach San Francisco shortly. Bota
these vessels will probably need some
slight repairs, and it is the intension of
the department to assign them, upon
the conclusion of this work, to the
squadron of evolution to be formed for
exercises in the Pacific. Other vessels
in '"the squadron will be the cruiser
Philadelphia and the battle-ship Iowa.
Rear Admiral Kautz, commander-in-chief
of the Pacific naval station, will
command the squadron, and the Phila
delphia will probably be maintained as
his flagship. The squadron will prob
ably spend the late fall and winter in
evolutions off the southern coast of
California, and it is not unlikely that
they will go as far as Honolulu. There
has never been, a squadron of evolution
in the Pacific and the Navy Depart
ment is anxious to have the four ves
sels begin their tactical exercises as
oon as possible. '
ENTERTAINED AT OMAHA.
Distinguished "Party of Hawaiians

A distinguished party of Hawaiians,
which arrived in the city Tuesday
evening, was entertained at the Com
mercial Club yesterday at lunch by
Messrs. Ed. Towse and Daniel Logan,
the Hawaiian Commissioners to the
Greater America Exposition, says the
Omaha World-Herald of August 24th.
The party "was made .up of H. Water-
house, who has been a member of the
National Senate and is one of the most

being interested in plantations, rail
ways and steamship lines, and Mrs.
Waterhouse; Miss N. Sturgeon and

a native of the Islands, who goes to
Princeton; Miss Nape, who is interest

Rev. J. M. Ezera and Rev. E. S. Timo

PRETORIA, Aug. 28. The
reports of Joseph Chamberlain's
speech at Birmingham last Fri
day have been calmly received
here. President Kruger said:
"Let the newspapers bring
whatever they like. I cannot
say whether they report Mr.
Chamberlain correctly. When
he speaks to me direct I shall
then know how to reply."
Commandant General Jou

CAPE TOWN, August 28. Replying
to the latest proposition of the British
Secretary of State for the Colonies, Mr.
Chamberlain, the Government of the
Transvaal has notified him that it ad
heres to its latest offer and will not
make any further concessions.
According to reports from Johannes
burg the burghers are everywhere ex
changing Martinis for Mausers. A
heavy load of ammunition, including
300 Mausers, arrived at Johannesburg
on Friday from Utrecht, the Nether
The Cape House of Assembly is
against discussing the question of
transit of arms intended for Orange
Free State and presumably the Trans
vaal. Evidently a state of extreme
tension exists as every speech made
today was received with almost abso
lute silence in the chamber.
William P. Schreiner, the Premier,
personally appealed to to his followers
to refrain from answering the criti
cism of the opposition, lest they should
prove words of Ill-feeling.
The entire opposition arose to sup
port the motion for adjournment made
by Rght Hon. John Gordon Sprigg.
He said that the recent speech of the
British Secretary of State for the Col
onies, Sir Joseph Chamberlain, at
Birmingham, England, had forced all
to the conclusion that South Africa
was on the brink of war unless the
Transvaal met the British demands. In
his opinion the Cape Government
ought to follow the example of Portu
gal at Delagoa Bay and refuse to per
mit the transit of arms as . long as the
LONDON, August 28. The St. James
Gazette today says that it learns that
an inspection by General Joubert,
commander in chief of the Transvaal
forces, disclosed the fact that nine
tenths of the reserve shells and car
tridges in the Pretoria forts are Ineffi
cient and that an immediate order to
renew the supply was placed in Eu
rope. Although not definitely known, it is
assumed here in London that Mr.
Chamberlain had the reply of the
Transvaal Government before he de
livered the Birmingham speech. It is
also believed that on the receipt of
President Kruger'a offer of a five years
franchise and other concessions Mr.
Chamberlain wired that they were un
acceptable and suggested modification.
If this be so, and if the reply to that
suggestion that the Transvaal Gov
ernment adheres to its latest offer and
Makes the food mere delicious end v hoSesome

President Kruger's final answer, the
position is ominous.
The importance of President Steyn's
letter to Mr. fcchreiner lies in the fact
that an offensive treaty exists between

fresh news from South Africa, but It
is announced that the Governor of Na

The Pretoria correspondent of the
Daily Chronicle declares that Presi
dent Kruger's concessions are so far
reaching that it is doubtful whether
the Burghers will ratify them. He
thinks it more likely that they will
demand Kruger's resignation and the
appointment of a younger man, prob
ably Schalk W. Burger, a non-official
member of the Legislative Council of
All the morning papers comment upon
the seriousness of the situation as re
vealed on Saturday at Birmingham by
the speech of Joseph Chamberlain,
Secretary of State for the Colonies.
The Daily Telegraph calls the speech
"An informal ultimatum."
The Standard says It marks thfa
most critical stage yet reached.
The Dally News observes: "We can
not but suppose that such grave words
were well weighed beforehand."
The Times says: "Such a delicate
situation cannot be protracted. We
believe that within the last few days
the final arrangements of the general
direction of the expedition which will
be necessary in the event of a rupture
have been completed at the War Office.
It is scarcely necessary, to point out
the extreme danger of allowing en
trance into South Africa of arms which
would be likely to fall into the hands
of the black population, which exceeds
the white fourfold."
KILLED BEFORE THE KAISER.
BERLIN, August 26. While the
Emperor was viewing the drill of the
Twenty-seventh Field Artillery at Ma
yence he witnesed the death of a gun
ner who had carelessly handled his
piece. His Majesty was deeply moved
and shook the dying man's hand. He
inquired what his last wishes were, and
has since sent the man's fiancee abet
ter of condolence, inclosing a large
sum of money. -
' BUBONIC PLAGUE IN RUSSIA.
ST. PETERSBURG, August 26.
Many evidences point to the fact that
the outbreak at Astrakhan is really
bubonic plague. Many cases have re
sulted fatally. The Duke of Oldenburg,
who is president of a committee for
combating the plague, has been sent
to Astrakhan, accompanied by some

court ushers, who were standing with

casion was the birthday of the prophet
and the Sultan was receiving tribal
gifts in the quadrangle of the palace.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 25.
The Filipinos will be treated to
a surprise when Captain Grant
Squires of the Signal Corps
reaches Manila. Captain Squires
has been sent by General Gree
ly to introduce the Marconi sys
tem of wireless telegraphy for
communication between de
tached wings of the army and
the main body. As a result,
Filipinos who are in retreat be
fore an advancing party of
American soldiers will soon be
apt to find different bodies of
pursues acting with most as
tonishing harmony. Captain
Squires has recently been in
Europe studying the Marconi
system, and he has prepared a
full report to General Greely.
The War Department has or
dered a powerful movable
searchlight, which will be de
livered next week and at once
sent to Manila. It will be
mounted on the Intrenchments
and played over the surrounding
country so as to prevent any
possibility of a night surprise
by the enemy.
