THE ATTACK

TROOPS TO BE ENGAGED
Otis Cables the List of the Casualties
of the Past Few Days—Fight
at the Bridge.
Washington, March 30.—With Ameri
can forces .within three and a half miles
of the insurgents' capital interest in the
military movements north of Manila has
about reached the culmination point. It
was stated at the war department today
the march of three and a half miles might
take all of today in view of the successive
lines of rebel entrenchments and strong
earthworks which It is believed the rebels'
have thrown up immediately around the
city
city itself would not begin until tomor

In that event the storming of the
m • * . 4
There is no certainty, however, that the
, . \ . ,1
snort distance may not be compassed
eaily today so as to permit an assault
late today or during the night. Corbin
was of the opinion the attack would be
gin today.
Major Simpson, of the military infor
mation bureau, had made a final read
justment of the American position, show
ing'just how the approach to the insur
gent capital will be executed. It shows
the brigade o'f Hale stretched on the right
and that of Harrison Gray Otis on the
left. Each brigade in this advance line
is made up of seasoned volunteers with
four batteiies of Third artillery, these be
ing the only regulars.
But just back of them and midway be
tween the two advance brigades is the
strong force of Wheaton, which has been
kept from the arduous work of the last
few days and held as a sort of batter
4 ! lng ram. It is made up mainly of regu
■jll j lars, Twenlty-second infantry and Third
S i infantry, as well as one regiment of vol
i unteers, the Second Oregon, which has
4 ] seen some of the hardest fighting of the
ß war.
A I It is said the reserve force of Wheaton's
$ ! will be heard from when the main aB~

THE BATTLE
AT THE BRIDGE
AMERICAN LOSSES ARE QUITE SE
VERE, BUT THE ADVANCE
STILL GOES ON.
New York, March 30.—A dispatch to
the Herald from Manila Wednesday
says: The army's advance today had
covered more than two miles before any
resistance was offered. Insurgents have
been found with their throats cut. This
is taken to indicate that tliey were pun
ished for refusing to fight. It is now he
lieved that the insurgents' faith in Aguiin
aldo is destroy'd. Aguinaldo with his
family is said to be preparing to flee
from MUlolos. General MacArthur is
making ready an armored railroad car
for future operations.
Ait 6 o'clock this (Wednesday) morn
ing the flying column, with the Third ar
tillery and the Montana and Kansas voi
uniters on tine li ft of the railroad and the
Pennsylvania, South Dakota and Ne
braska volunteers on the right, started
for Bueave, across two miles of open
field. The insurgents began to fire im
mediately and continued until the troops
reached the river at Boeave. The Ameri
can tipoops never wavered. The Ne
braska regiment swung in from die ex

from the

In the Pennsylvania regiment there

privates wounded. In the Montana regl

I ecl -
The Américain advar.ee was wonder
fully rapid considering that the enemy]
destroyed the bridges and fled. There
was no resietanre at Bigaa. The troops
advanced rapidly in contracted lines to
the town of Guingulnto. The Pennpyl
viuila regiment crossed the bridge as the
advance guard. Unexpectedly, the in
surgents, concclaled in the woods ahead,
opened a heavy fire. Then the Kansas
regiment and one battalion of the South
Dakota regiment rushed over the bridge
under fire. Two of the Utah battsry guns
and one Colt rapid lire also came into ac
tion.
The insurgents had made trenches
across the railroad. Our loss was several
killed and more than JO wouinJded before
the insurgents were driven off.

SHE IS A MYSTERY
OF THE DEEP
New York, March 30—The Times says:
The Scipio, a craft of nowhere, hound to
nowhere, flying no flag, ownerless and
crewless, is to be sold to the highest bid
der at the Brooklyn navy yard by the
United States government. A board has
been appointed to examine the ship
which lies at the yard. The board will
i
determine as to how to dispose of he
j The board will perform a. similar duty
j with respect to the steamer Niagara,
' which is also at the Brooklyn navy yard.
This was bought by the government
from the Ward line during the Spanish
war.
At the outbreak of hostilities agents
of this government were engaged in buy
ing ships and war munitions in England.
The beginning of actual warfare found
! some of the deals incomplete. England
j being a neutral power, these incompleted
! deals could not be pushed through—that
i' s to say > apparently not. Soon after the
beginning of hostilities a steamship in
perfect trim from stem to stern with
furnace fires burning, with steam up but
without r soul on board was
found adrift off the coast of Newfound
land, found by a I'nited States ship, too,
oddly enough. The crewless ship was
the Scipio. She (lew no (lag and there
was not so much as a scrap of paper to
be found aboard her to indicate where
she sailed from, where she was sailing
to, or who owned her. She was a mys
tery of the deep.
The Scipio carried a cargo of eoal but
never did such strange things come out
of a cargo of coal as came from the
1
j
j
depths of the anthracite piled in the
hold. There were guns, line modern af
fairs of English make, Maxims, Hatch
kiss cannon, field pieces and other «rd
nance together with ammunition. Just
how the Scipio came to be found adrift
with such an opportune cargo by a
United States ship lias never been to.ld—
officially. The Scipio has been at the
Brooklyn navy yard since she was pick
ed up adrift on the high seas.
SQUEEZED HER
HANDS VIOLENTLY
Philadelphia, March 30.—Miss Edith
Boone of this city has begun a suit for
$15,000 damages against Frederick R.
Farrow, a young drug clerk, for squeez
ing her hands so violently that the small
bones m one of them was broken and
both hands were rendered practically
useless. Her doctor says necrosis may
necessitate the amputation of one hand.
The squeezing was done a year ago,
, when Farrow had a situation in the
store under where Miss Boone's family
ii v ,,a and where he took his meals. Of
the singular case the fair plaintiff said:
'lu^t after dinner March 18, 1898, Fred
! ***** both " f "*> h l W \
began to^ueeze them. ^ It
not. He pressed my hands very hard
for five minutes. I cried and begged him
to stop. A few afterward
right wrist swelled awfully and turned
purple. I was treated at the polyclinic
hospital, but both of my hands are use
less, as you see. They are getting worse
too."
"I was only in fun," said Farrow in
j
1
;
explanation. "My case is in the hands
of a lawyer."
Fate of Crew Unknown
London, March 30.—Wreckage front the
French bark Maréchal Lannes, Swansea

Affair is Regretted
Washington, March 30.—The state de

WOULD GIVE A
BOTTLE M0N0PLY
Albany, N. Y., Mtireh 30.—Govemolr
Roosevelt has boon asked to veto ihe bill
now in his hand's providing no druggst

taining poison unless it be contained in
a box or bottle, octagonal in shape with
roughened edges, and having impressed
upon the image of a skull and cross

exactly fits the language of the act. No
