--Our Losses,
Manila, March 20.—S:20 a. m.—It iS re
ported on hitherto reliable authority that
Aguinaldo is taking extreme measures to
suppress signs calculated to cause a ces
sation of hostilities. Twelve adherents
of the plan of independence, residents of
Manila, have been condemned to death

I because they wr
and all loyal Filipinos have been called
j upon to perform the national service of
! dispatching them.
I On Friday last Da Garda visited La
| cordas for the purpose of advising,
I -, tt with the
Aguinaldo to quit. He argued witn tnc i
I insurgent leader and attempted to con
I vince him of the folly of his persistence
I in the face of overwhelming odds.
I Aguinaldo was furious at the advice and
I ordered General Da Garda to be executed
I immediately. The unfortunate general
was promptly decapitated.
Among the incidents of yesterday's
fighting was the coolness exhibited by a
company of the Washington volunteers,
who crossed the river In a native canoe
! under a heavy fire, fifteen being taken
; across on each trip of the small boat to
! attack the enemy's trenches. The ina
jbility of the commissary train to keep
j up with the advance led to considerable
suffering, and many of the men were
completely exhausted when they were
recalled, and, falling from the ranks,
were strung along for a distance of al
most six miles, numbers returning to
camp in the artillery ambulances, which
were always close up to the lines. The
work of the ambulances was especially
worthy of mention. Among the dead are
several who were previously reported as
wounded. Yesterday's casualties were
as follows:

SEARCHING
THE RUINS
Many Bodies Will Probably be
Uncovered
IN WINDSOR HOTEL RUINS
!
Dismembered Leg Was Taken Out
Today—Methods Employed to
Prevent Thievery.
New York, March 20.—Tt is believed
the workmen today will reach that part
i .
of the Windsor hotel rums where most
i . , .
ni the bodies are supposed to he. the
j
: hies from the wreckage. Were the debus
i taken up by the shovel the jewelry and
| property might thus ho thrown un
! seen into 1,1
woik of removing the debris goes on night
and day and much progress will be made
belay, the ruins have cooled and some of
the threatening walls have fallen. No
picks or shovels are allowed the laborers.
They remove the debris with their hands.
There is a twofold design in this' method.
First, there is the care to recover valua
arts to be cast away among
the waste heaps. Every precaution is
taken to collect all articles of value so
the workmen are allowed to take up only
the smallest fragments of wreckage and
are instructed to search at every mument
fo" hidden property. Whatever is found
in this progress is turned over to the po
I lice and taken to a 1 itt 1 ;■ shanty in Fifth
j av< , nue where Roundsman Nugent has es
| tab; ,; slud headquarters and a property
| bureau.
I Pest some of t.he workmen secrete about
their person jewelry and other valuables
I they come across in their labors, they are
I carefully searched after they stop work
and are allowed to leave the ground.
Formed in a long line, they are marched
between rows of watchful policemen into
I the shanty Where their clothing is care
J fully overhauled for hidden treasu:c.
, But beyond all consideration for valua
! Wes in the care used in delving in the
juins is the thought of the human bodies
which any touch might bring to light. It
i in mindfulness of thf dead mote than
the rest that no picks of shovels are al
lowed in workmen's hands, lest a blow
should bury it one of these. Near by with
a corps? of assistants about him, is Dr.
Blauvelt of the health department. Bar
rels of disinfectants arc at his hand to lie
sprinkled over the bodies when they be
revealed.
Dr. Edwin J Donlin. coroner's physi
cian, with several aides, waits for the
time he shall be called upon to perform his
part. To him has been intrusted the of
| lice of caring for the dead and superln
! t' tiding their removal to the morgue. His
I details are all arranged. Each body as
! recovered will be borne into the police
shed, there to ire numbered. Then it will
, be rallied to the dead wagon which is not
to be summoned till wanted, and then to
) the morgue. To prevent confusion, such
; as followed the hotel Royal fire and Park
j Place disaster, Dr. Donlin has instructed
the police to remove no jewelry from the
bodies. Such has been the custom and
confusion resulted. Now the coroner will
I take charge of this matter. The hotel
■safe lias been tound uninjured, it has not
I been opened.
I Miss Ilel ii Gould turned her house into
!a bureau last evening. Four iong tailles
] were spread in her kitelu n, boilers of cof

,
Bonner said he believed the fire started
somewhere near the water tank near the
calculated to hold 8,000 gallons
'ilc-bi was near the court on the Forty
sixth street side; that this tank dropped
into the hotel and made a hole big enough
to give the flames, which had already ob
tained good headway plenty of play.
The crash of this tank was what was gen
,-rally supposed to be the first explosion.
The accidental explosion from the coin
1 ustive materials in the building came a
tittle later. This theory would contradict
live statement of Miss Gould's chef that
be saw flames near the flagstaff on the
west side of the building, but everything
now tends to Fhow that the fire began on
the east side of it.
The search of the ruins of the Windsor
hotel was begun today by a large force
of laborers. The fire is still smouldering.
The big office safe was dug out, appar
ently intact. At 9 o'clock the charred leg
bone of a human being was found near
the entrance, burned beyond any iden
tity. The first seen of it was a skeleton
of the breast, including the ribs and
1 ,reast bone. Close by a foot with nearly
all the flesh on it was found. It appeared
î 0 ta severed from the leg by the falling
of some heavy piece of debris. Those in
jured from the fire were reported this
morning to be improving.

eight men. from Ft. Monroe, undo, com

this afternoon and marched to the office
of the United States Express company,

Their purpose was to waylay the light

with the treasure. He said that the de

highway men, but the government déclin
