Americans Were Attacked
By the Friendlies.
! Ensued and Our Forces Lost Five
Killed and Many Wounded—Rebels
Loss Was very Heavy—Soldiers
Returning; to Their Homes.
Manila, June 19.—3:20 p. m. A hat
talion of the Fourth infantry which left
I rents', where General Wheaton is in com
manid, this morning to reconnoiter to
! ward Pedas des Marin, where it was be
j lteved most of the rebels who escaped
1 from Paranaque and Bacoor had fled,
j was attacked in the rear by apparently
' friendly natives. This brought on a
: sharp engagement lasting several hours,
j resulting in five Americans being killed
; and' about 25 wounded. The loss of the
i rebels is very heavy.
I The battalion soon exhausted its ara
j munition and at 2:30 p. m. General
j Wheaton and his staff, with two moun
j tain guns and one field piece, went to re
! inforce the troops attacked. General
j Wheaton was fired on in the road and had
I a narrow escape.
i A third battalion was ordered to the
front and formed an the LasMinas road.
Heavy firing on both sides followed, the
artillery being freely used. The enemy
was located in, the woods at 4 o'clock,
showing signs of retiring, as the rebels
: were being pressed very hard.
One gun of the Sixth artillery, in an
; advantageous position, did great execu
tion. The fighting was still in progress
] at 5 o'clock, at which time the Ameri
j cans had secured a quantity of Filipino
; arms which had been abandoned in the
woods. The scene of the fighting is over
twenty miles from Manila.
Returning Soldiers.
Wshington, June 19.—The following
cablegram has been received from Gen
eral Otis:
"Manila, June 19.—Adjutant General,
Washington: All volunteer organizations
here desire muster out at San Francisco."
General Otis also cabled the war de
partment as follows:
"Manila, June 19.—Adjutant General,
Washington: The Sherman arrived this

Sixth infantry. Col. Kellogg and 12 men
left at Honolulu sick. Seven cases
typhoid fever en route. Sixth, infantry

charged as sick, with civilians, left for
San Francisco via Nagaski yesterday.
The Hancock and Sherman with the
Nebraska, Pennsylvania and Utah leave
for the United States as soon as the
troops can be placed in readiness. The
Californians will leave as soon as select
ed. Colorado is to follow on the first avail
able transport "

Alaskan Controversy.
London, June 19.—The officials of the
Colonial Office today were shown the dis
patch from Washington saying that
Canada had served notice on Great j
Britain that she must choose between the j
United States and her North American '■
dominion in the settlement of the Alaska
boundary dispute. They declared the !
story false both is substance and fact !
and that it can be further reaffirmed that
a modus vivendi was reached early last ;
; week as cabled to the Associated Press
; at that time.
j The arrangement, which is a verbal one,
Ideals with the question on broad lines,
i One or two minor details are stil! under
discussion and when they are settled a
final arrangement will be entered into. It
may be further said that the boundary
agreed upon follows the summits of White
and Chilkoot passes.
Cannibalism and Death.
Circle City. Alaska, May 29, via San
Francisco, June 19.—A story of possible
cannibalism and death on the Yukon
i trail has just reached here. Three men
| who left Dahl river on December 5th for
, , .
'Jimtown were not heard of again
j . . J , .
they were supposed to have been lost.
. , , . . .. , .... .,
1 Nothing was heard of them here till the
steamer Rideout, which arrived today,
brought a terrible tale of suffering and

horror. The men were Michael Daly,
I Victor Edgar and M. Provost. They
were from Providence, R. I., Woonsocket,
R. I., and Brockton, Mass., respectively.
They were discovered 17 miles from the
mouth of Old Man creek, they having
lost the trail and become bewildered.
Having left Dahl river with only three
weeks' food, but which was amply suffi
cient for the 150 miles to Jimtown, the
poor fellows were soon reduced to starva
tion. Daly's body was found, partly
eaten, in a tent and on the stove just as
it was left when death overtook the
others were found some scraps of moose
hide and moccasins of which they were
endeavoring to make a stew. Daly's body
was identified by the clothes. The other
two men were found dead five miles away
from the tent. The fact of the tent Haps
being shut down when found would pre
clude the possibility of Daly's body hav
ing been eaten by animals. The others
were daubtless driven by hunger to the
awful extremity of cannibalism. Four
hundred dollars were found on the bodies.
The seven boats which wintered at Dahl
river are all safe. They are the St.
Michael, Reindeer, Monarch, Evans, Mary
Graff, El Luem and Rideout.
Change in Labor Laws.
Chicago, June 19.—D. A. Ray, of the
interstate commerce commission, who
was executive officer for the Hawaiian
commission last fall, left Chicago for
j Honolulu to continue the work of both
j that body antl th(? united States coast
! survey, which remains incomplete.
"The mission upon which I am engaged
jis of twofold nature," said Mr. Ray be
i fore leaving. "The labor problem is in a
I complicated condition which will require
! the greatest patience, and the most care
ful investigation to unravel. We under
\ stand no Chinese have been imported into
j the islands since the flag was raised last i
July, but we do know that a great many
I Japanese have been landed. The condi
! tions under which the raising of sugar [
cane, coffee and rice must be carried ou I
for a fair profit are such that cheap labor j
must be obtained from some quarter of ,
! the world and if our contract labor law i
lis made applicable to the islands, in the
I territorial or colonial form of government
!s iven them b >' congress, a great hardship,
j amounting to a practical killing of great
industries will result. My instructions
are to investigate more fully this ques
tion and present a report to the commit
tee of congress next December. It is
my opinion that the results of my inquiry
and the facts gained by the members of
commission by personal observation, will
cause the modification of immigration
laws as applied to the island to the extent
of allowing the importation of Japanese
and foreigners, other than Chinese, un
der contract with the understanding that
they are not to be brought from the
islands to any other state."
A Great Undertaking.
City of Mexico, June 19.—It is an
nounced that the government has con
, eluded arrangements for settling with
I the holders of bonds of the National Te
I huantepec railroad, which crosses tiie
isthmus of the same name, and has in- i
structed Pearson & Son, the contractors,
to begin work under the contract made
some time ago to rebuild a line in a sub- |
stantial manner and to commence work
I on two new ports, to he completed at
Zalina Cruz and the Pacific side and at
Coatcoalcos on the* gulf coast. This work
is of great commercial and strategical im
portance. it will cost many millions of
dollars and give Mexico facilities for do
ing a great trade in international freight.
Several large English companies have
been formed for business here, and cop
per will bo mined by two new London
companies with nearly $3.000,000 capital.
Australian Water Famine.
Chicago, June 19.—A special to the
Record from Victoria says: Tiie people
of the Cabardigo district in Australia,
according to advices brought by tiie War
rimoo, are suffering great distress
through failure of the water holes, sev
eral having died of thirst during May.
j Mines are closed down and hundreds of
j men thrown out of employment find
'■ themselves unable to pay tiie exorbitant
price demanded for domestic use. The i
! present charge is one shilling a gallon, |
! at the nearest reliable source of supply, '
and from 7s 6d to 9s 6d is added for de
; livery.
Welcome to McKinley.
Northampton. Mass., June 19.—North
ampton was dressed in its best today to
welcome the president of the United
States on his arrival from Holyoke. The
publlo buildings, together with many res
idence®, were gay with bunting and flags.
A rousing cheer went up as the train
came to a stop and the president stepped
down from the platform. This welcome
was repeated at intervals and the pres
ident and Mrs. McKinley were constantly
engaged in acknowledging ehe cheers.
The party was driven to the residence of
Captain Williams, where a beautiful lov
ing cup was presented to Mrs. McKinley
by Bcfhcsda Chapter, Order of the East
ern Star, of which she is a member.
Use Wireless Telegraphy.
New York, June 19.--A dispatch to the
Herald from Kingston. Jamaica, says:
The government of Trinidad lias decided
to adopt the Marconi system of wireless
telegraphy for communication with the
dependency of Tobago.
Tobago is an island in the Windward j
group of the British West Indies, 12 miles !
northeast of Trinidad. It was ceded to
Great Britain by France io 17C3.
Was Committed By Men
Near Philadelphia
Bound With Wire and Then the Safe
Was Blown Open—There Were
Ten of the Burglars and They Got
Away With About $4,000.
Philadelphia, June 19.—A gans
masked robbers, probably ten in num
ber, raided the receiving otlice of the
Fairmount, Park Transportation com- ;
patty at Belmont, in Fairmount park, ,
and after holding up the receiver and five i
other employes of the railroad, blew open :
the safe, securing $4,000, the company's 1
receipts for two days. The entire city de- j
tective force is on the case. ;
Frank Leaven, receiver; Frank Watson !
and Henry B. Whitehou.se, conductors; ;
James Cavanaugh, fireman of the power j
house; Philip Eaves, electrician, and Wil- ;
Ham Cadmus, laborer, were bound hand ;
and foot with wire. j
In addition to the men who actually j
committed ehe robbery, others operated
miles away from the scene by destroying |
telegraph and telephone wires connecting ,
with the trolley company's main office. !
Each intruder was armed with two re- I
volvers and they took the employes com
! pletely by surprise. It was tin
j a few miautet
i the
! sid
work of
for the robbers to pinion
workmen. Who were rolled to one
of the room, with thor faces to thp
wall. Ten minutes later the safe had
been cracked and the gang disappeared.
More Riols Reported.
Kingston, Jamaica, June 19.—Advices
from Antigua, British West Indies, say j
there has been a. recurrence at Montserat, j
Leeward islands, of the serious riots in |
tiie northern district, extending to the i
capital, Plymouth, over the old excise I
duty collections trouble which occasioned ;
;®,e riots of last year. The police were ;
overcome and the island was for a time
in the hands of a mob. The chief gov
ernment officials were confined in their
houses until the arrival of die British
cruiser Talbot changed the conditions.
After a sharp conflict between a detach
nient of marines and the rioters, the
ringleaders were arrested. There also
been a continuation of the troubles
in the French island of Guadalupe, where
more or less disastrous incendiary fires
have occurred on the plantations, each
preceded by an anonymous note to the
governor protesting against a coutimta
lion of the protection of immigrant iabor
plantations by the military.
New York, June 19.—The Times Lon- j
don financial correspondent cabins: The
email amounts of gold shipped from |j
London Financial Cable.
New Yoik to Europe have disturbed tin
reale and our money market has tem
porarily fallen fiat. Some hankers are
'•uy:i»g bills at 1 T „ per cent, anil it is ex
pected dial the rate will go lower still.
Th- Bank of England has attracted vry
tittle of tiie gold arriving from any quar
ter. but sovereigns have come back from
Scotland, and its reserve, therefore, is
up almost to die 1,000,006 mark, and quite
••nough to inspire the belief that ease is
,-..-..-ured ail summer. Yet gold is in de
mand for the continent, and the urgent
ibrements of the German market have
abated much. The more rates fall
la re the more liberty is accorded to the
foreigner to buy the metal and to keep
our banks from getting away. But there
is apparently no pressure on tlie banks'
present stock, at any rate before August.
Stock exchange business was hall de
stroyed this month by tlie bi-monthly
statement, and more by the renewed
wrangle over the eternal UiBander ques
tion in die Transvaal. People do
actually believe in war. but many
not i
fear I
I, st war Should lie rushed by the eosmo- !
poiitan gentry who e.ontiol the mining in- j
dustry. Some among th« band did tlieif
fctst to smash the Kaffir ma rkt-t when tlia '
babble brgan. and failed merely because !
the French bought the shares offered,
'! he French are a marvelous people.
Their hands seem full, arid certainly they
have refused to lend any more money
to their beloved Russia, which, accord
ingly. came here with but poor success.
Yet Paris never fails to buy Rand and
Rhi Tinto shares, and. above all, Spanish

nds. w hen any come to tlio market. !
French pay, too, for what they buy, j
and a political crisis at home and war j
-I ir-s abroad make no difference. The !
whole nation seems to have put on blirk- i
ci , that prevents it from seeing anything)
but an immediate chance of gain on mar
ket operations. j
c,, m'-h sealed blinds are now 66, but i
«lumped suddenly on Madrid ,,M j
j Paris prices. They fell to 28 when me |
! war broke out, and the intrinsic position
of the country is worse now than then.
jliut the astute ones who have all along I
controlled Spanish finance, now calculate
on gradually farming the country out to
monopolists. Its forests and other pub
lic domains, its mineral wealth, including
the quicksilver mines, Rothschilds' lease
of which expires next year, its drinks and
smokes, in fact, everything vendable, will
be laid hold of by degrees for the behoof
of foreign creditors. The Spanish people,
helpless and careless, may submit, but
even so these creditors will not be paid
in full. What matter if the French do
think so and buy against the world?
We are threatened with an agricultural
disaster that may, among other evils,
inflict upon us a woefully short grain
crop. June, usually rather wet, is this
year so far rainless, and crops are al
ready half ruined in many parts of the
country. The same conditions prevail
over the greater part of Europe and in
South Russia the wheat crop is said to
be lost. So, if your farmers are favored
by the weather they have again a splen
did prospect before them, even with India
The underwriters have had to take up
almost the entire capital of the new cop
per companies floated here lately. The
j country holds aloof from the coming
j smash—which smash is a long ways off
i but sure to happen some day, for money
: has been free, and the new
I steadily getting to work. The mid-month
copper statistics showed a slight gain of
i consumption in supplies, and tiiat cheered
! the bulls. They need cheering when sup
i plios are increasing, while demands are
1 everywhere rigorously curbed.
m:nos are j
Bryan Will be Nominated.
Chicago, June 19.—A special to the
Tribuna from Bath, Me., says: George
Fred Williams of Massachusetts and
State Chairman William McNary have
been in conference here with Arthur
Sewall, who ran with William J. Bryan
on the presidential ticket of the silver
j wing of the democracy. They declined to
I be interviewed regarding their delibera
tions, but Mr. Williams, when asked eon
! cerning Senator Gorman's prospects for
j r u » presidential nomination, said:
"Mr. Gorman cannot have the Massa
chusetts delegation. He cannot get a
single man of it, and lie stands not a
ghost of a show in getting tiie democratic
nomina tion."
"Do you feel confident that Mr. Bryan
will get the nomination at the conven
tion?" lie was asked.
"I think McKinley will he nominated,:
and feel more sure that Mr. Bryan will
be ,for, as I said before, if lie and I lie j
Chicago platform should be thrown over, |
which is not in the lea.st likely, lie will
be nominated on another ticket." ]
Government of Hawaii.
Chicago, June 19.—A special to the
Tribune from Victoria, B. C., says: W,
F. Mondell, member of congress from
Wyoming, is spending a mouth in Hono
lulu, whilst, studying the conditions and
political products of the new candidate
for statehood.
■ ! think there is no question but that
Hawaii will be given a territorial form of
government. 1 do not see how anything
else can be done. Personally, T am in
favor of a territorial form of government
with the most liberal system of self gov-
ernment. I insisl and shall insist that
the Hawaiian people should have the
handling of all Un ir local affairs. This
country was independent for many years. 1
|j am sure that your public men who are ■
familiar with the conditions, views and
the people can give your local j
far better advantage than con- ;
do. My ideas of
