Gen. Otis Sends in Another
List ol Casualties.
Manila, May 8.—2:50 p. m.—The army
gunboats Laguna De Bay and Cap Cav
donga, under command of Captain Grant,
started up the San Fernando river for
Guaga yesterday, as was presumed to
establish there a base of supplies for
troops engaged in the northern cam
paign, returned today, General Mac
! Arthur having failed to connect with the
; expedition. The gunboats found ^he
! rebels entrenched at Sosmoan and Guaga
! on the water fronts of the towns. The
! vessels steamed past the works, shelling
the occupants and driving them out
! Landing parties from boats entered both
; towns, capturing at Sosmoan a Spanish
I captain in uniform who was ostensibly
ja prisoner in the hands of the rebels and
1 also a native officer.
j Arriving at Guaga the twon and small
gunboat were found to be burning and
the natives were evacuating the place in
] consequence of the bombardment. At
j Sosmoan a landing party captured a
j number of Filipino flags and a quantity
; of arms, chiefly bolos, and bows and ar
j rows and beside a lot of band instru
j ments which the men played as they

Washington, May 8.—The war depart
ment has received a cablegram from
j General Otis giving the situation in the
Philippines, some parts of which have
I been omitted by the war department in
; making it up. The despatch is as fol
! lows:
I Manila, May 8.—Adjutant General,
j Washington:—Situation as follows: Law
j ton at Nassih and Baling; scouting par
,1 ties to north and east. MacArthur at
San Fernando. Population of country
i between Manila and northern points held
1 by troops returning to their home. Men
j appear cheerful and contented. Army
; gunboats operating in rivers. Have
j cleared country west of MacArthur of in
surgents. Signs of insurgents' weakness
more apparent dally. (Signed) OTIS.
Manila, May 8.—7:40 p. m.—The Fili
pinos surprised the United States forces
'at San Fernando with a daring trick on
, yesterday. A railway train with an en
; gine at each end was run almost to the
American outposts and in plain sight of
' the town. Before they could be reached
■ a gang of natives sprang off the train,
1 tore up several lengths of railway track,
I boarded the train again and steamed
j away so quickly there was no opportu
] nity to capture the raiders. The Nebraska
(regiment is asking for temporary relief
from duty. Only 375 men of this regiment
are left at the front.
Washington, May 8.—Otis reports the
following deaths:
May 3—Edward Vaughn, 51st Iowa.
May 4—Jonn A. Smith, 11th Infantry.

Output of Klondike
San Francisco, May 8.—A letter from
Dawson dated April 8 says: The Yukon
Sun estimates the total output of the
1 Klondike region for the winter of 1898-99
at $20,000,000, but It is doubtful if this es
timate is up to the mark which may reaoh
twice that amount. Notwithstanding the
predictions of last fall to the effect that
the Canadian royalty would stop work
more dirt has been taken out this year on
creeks outside of Eldorado and Bonanza
than was taken out in the whole district
last year. There has been a general exo
dus to the creeks of men seeking work
and the trails where dumps are thickest
are lined with the tents of those seeking
employment during the clean-up.
The Newark at Rio
New York. May S.—A special to the
Herald from Washington says: Secretary
Long was advised several days ago of the
arrival of the Newark at Rio, where it
was announced she had put in for coal.
The Newark was directed when shes tart
ed south to stop at South American ports
in order that the department might reach
her with orders to proceed to Samoa,
should the situation demand the presence
of another American man-of-war. The
agreement of Admiral Kautz and Ma
taafa, which has put an end to the fight
ing and ending in inquiry by the commis
sioners has made the presence of an
other man-of-war unnecessary and un
less new and grave developments arise the
Newark will continue on her way to the
Pacific ocean.
