OUR LOSSES DURING THE WAR. More Than Two Thousand Battles and Skirmishes—One Thousand Men Killed by the Enemy—Entire Death List Exceeds Four Thousand. Washington, July 24.—MnJ. James Parker of the adjutant general’s de partment, lias compiled statistics re garding the Insurrection in the Philip pines. There were 2,150 engagements with the enemy, more or less serious, between February 4, 1890, the date of the battle of Manila, and April 50, 1902. fixed as the virtual downfall of the Insurrection. The larger portion of these lights were attacks from am bush on the American troops, or skir mishes in which only small detach ments took part. “In almost no case in these engage ments,” says Major Parker, “did American troops surrender or have to retreat or have to leave their dead and wounded In the possession of the en emy. notwithstanding that in many cases the percentage of loss was high. The number of troops that have been transported to the Philippines and have arrived there up to July Kith last was 4.155 officers ami 125,805 men. The average strength taken from monthly returns for the period of the insurrection was approximately 40,- 000.” Major Parker summarizes the casunl th*s of the American army as follows: Killed or died of wounds, 09 ollleers and 950 enlisted men; deaths from dis ease, 47 oltleers and 2,555 cnlistcu men; deaths from accidents, 0 ollleers and 125 enlisted men; drowned. 0 otli eers and 257 enlisted men; suicide, 10 ollleers and and 72 enlisted men; mur dered, 1 officer and 91 enlisted men; to tal deaths, 159 officers and 4,010 en listed men. wounded, 19 officers and 2,707 enlisted men, a total of 2,897; killed and wounded and deaths other than by disease, 282 ollleers and 4,188 enlisted men; total, 4.470. A large portion of the dentils by drowning occurred In action or in ac tive operations against the enemy. Major Parker makes the percentage of killed and wounded to the strength of the army 9.7. The epidemic of cholera has lieen particularly hard upon the medical corps of tin* army stationed on the Philippine islands, and the casualty list received here shows that the sur geons and the hospital corps have borne their share of the suffering. Surgeon General Forwood has re ceived a copy of one of the orders lu which these casualties are announced, as follows: "The death of Private Joseph G. M. Eisenmn, hospital corps, U. S. A., is announced. Private Eiseman was de tailed to face death ns a cholera nurse for one of our comrades and died from the disease, caught -from his charge; an example of devotion to duty to be held up for all men to cmulute. “Private Leonard B. Stevenson, hos pital corps, U. S. A., was detailed to V nurse both of our *-oi«»r.i«i..*>, with tt>c knowledge that his predecessor had been cut down while performing the same duty. Without a murmur he re sponded and remained till the soil cov ered his plague-stricken charges, ana then he returned to Ills routine duties. "The men of this command who have fac«nl death a in id the whirl of bullets and the excitement of a light ran readily appreciate the courage re quired to dally await Its approach in the form of one of the most dreaded diseases known to the world to-day, and tin* commanding otlieer makes this an opportunity to publicly acknowl edge that ‘duty well done,’ the high est aim of a soldier, is a goal Pri vate Stephenson has reached. "This order will be published at parade Tuesday, July 27. and at gen eral inspection of the hospital corps, July 51st.” P. O. S. A. Convention.

Denver, July 24.—A News special from Estes Park says: Water for irrigation in northern Col orado Is liecoming short, ami this year's dryness and the sugar beet crops have caused water rights to rise in value. Unappropriated water, res ervoir sites and unchartered lakes are being sought out, located and taken. There are no less than four outlits, each in charge of an irrigation engi neer. exploring the continental divide, looking for water or a chance to store it. The lakes around timber line on the sources of the Thompson. St. Vrain and Poudre are being examined and surveyed and appropriated. The sources of the Grand river are being looked over, and the range lias been examined at two places to see the feas ibility of timbering and turning some of the water from the Grand Into the Big Thompson. These outfits are very secretive as their plans, and they came unan nounced to their fields of operation. For the most part they seem to be .backed by the ditch companies of Lar iiner eouutv. TRIED FOR CONTEMPT. Judge Jackson Enforces Injunction Against Striking Coal Miners. Parkersburg. \V. Vu., July 20.—Judge Jackson, rendering bis decision in the “Mother" Junes contempt eases Thurs day held that all the defendants had violated the injunction ami were guilty of contempt of court. The opinion supported the right of the courts to use Injunction and tin* right of laborers to work when they wish to do so. without Interference from organised labor or any other source. Judge Jackson in his decision said: “While I recognize the right for all laborers to combine for the purpose of protecting all their lawful rights. 1 do not recognize the right of laborers to conspire together to compel employes who are not dissatisfied with their work in the mines to lay down their picks and to quit their work, without a just or proper reason therefor, merely to gratify a professional set of agita tors, organizers and walking delegates who roam all over the country as agents for some combination, who are vampires that live and fatten on the honest labor of the coal miners of the country, and who are busybodies. cre ating dissatisfaction among a class of people who are quiet, well disposed and who do not want to be disturbed by the unceasing agitation of tills class of people. "In the ease we have umlei consider ation these defendants are known as professional agitators, organizers and walking delegates. They have nothing in common with the people who are employed in the mine of the Clarks burg Fuel Company. “The strong arm of the court of equity is invoked in this case, not to suppress the right of free speech, but to restrain and inhibit these defend ants, whose only purpose is to bring about strikes by trying to coerce peo ple who are not dissatisfied with the terms of their employment, which re sults in inflicting injury and damage to their emplovers as well as to the em ployes.” The court then referred to “Mother” Jones’ speech near the Kinnlkiuiilck mines, saying her utterances were tin outgrowth of the sentiments of those who believe in communism and an archy. “The evidence shows that ’Mother' Jones called the miners shoes; salt! she did not care anything for injunc tions; that it was a duty to urge the men at work to lay down their tools and advise the men to strike; that the Judge was a hireling of the coal com puny and the coal operators were all robbers. She said in her speech tc pay no attention to Judge Jackson 01 to the court, but Just make the miners lay down their tools and come out. “It Is true,” says the court, “that 'Mother* Jones denied some of the statement.** of the witness, but her de nial was not positive, but equivocal.” Judge Jackson suspended Judgment In the case of “Mother” Jones for con tempt. He said that she has been found guilty of contempt “but ns sh< ponlns .... .. lie would MO I send her to Jail, or allow her to forct her way Into jail.” Hi* said he would hold conviction over her and if she violated the injunction he would sen tence her heavily. Thomas Haggerty got ninety day* and five other got sixty days each in the Parkersburg jail. The Hungarians declared they had not understood tin. Injunction and were released upon tilt promise not to violate it again. Austro-liungnrlnn consul at New York was here to represent them. Inclunmg some arrested later, there were twenty four Hungarians released In the sain, manner. There was Intense Interest shown lij everyone as Judge Jackson earnest l> read his decision. “Mother” Jones wa» surrounded by the other defendants and Vice President Lewis of the I'nited Mine Workers was present with them The defendants were surprised wnu both the decision and the sentiment* and expressed themselves bitterly.

Denver, July l!7. The death of Al derman Kelly, the frightful Injury to City Supervisor Lindquist mill the bruising of other members of the party in n runaway brought a sudden and tragic end to the Investigation by the special water committee sent up Platte canon and to Cheesman lake. The accident occurred at 3:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon on a mountain road four miles south of Wellington lake. A sudden lurch of the stage, drawn by four horses, threw the driver. John J. Noonan, from Ills seat to the road and the horses immediately stain ed on a wild run down the mountains. Kelly, who was sitting in the front seat with the driver, made an attempt to catch the lines and fell over tin 1 dashboard. 11 is forehead was crushed in and lie sustained a rupture. The other members of the city com mittee Jumped for their lives and all landed safely except Supervisor Lind quist.

Nle meyer. was on the freight carrier In the rear of the stage, and remained there until just before the vehicle turned over. All three newspaper men escaped with bad bruises, i.yuiau suf fered a severe cut over the left eye. The members of the city’s committee who Jumped and escaped with a severe shaking up were Aldermen Italley and Caban and City Engineer u'Hricn.

Parish and ('onion. Mrs. Mary White and two men who did not give their names, were on their way to Lake Cheesman In search of work. Fillmore heard the wild cries of the men in the stage behind and guessing what the trouble was whipped his own horses into a gallop in an endeavor to reach a place In the road where he might turn out. A clump of bushes lined the road, perhaps fifty yards ahead, and for them he made at breakneck speed. He reached them not a moment too soon, for as he turned off the front wheels of the madly-careening stage struck the lilnd wheels of the forward wnitmi mill iiiiiicd over. The four-horse team continued in its mad flight, dragging tin* overturned stage along the road. Mr. Tebbets and one of the workmen from the forward wagon sprang at the heads of the lead ers and soon brought them to a stop. As soon as possible Mr. Kelly, who was- still alive and able to sit up by the support of a man on each side, and Mr. Lindquist were placed in the wa gon and the party started to drive back to Wellington, four miles distant. Just before reaching Wellington Mr. Kelly died and his body was placed in another wagon. A rapid drive was made twelve miles farther to Ituffalo station on the Colo rado & Southern, where I>r. E. W. La zed of Denver was found, who at once proceeded to dress Mr. Lindquist’s leg. lielng assisted by Dr. Flegenbaum of Edwardsville, Illinois. A special train was sent up from Denver to bring the party back to the city. COLORADO STATE FAIR. Great Preparations for the Exhibition in Pueblo Next September.

An incident yesterday evening at Sainte-Meen, eighteen miles from Brest, shows the spirit of tlie peasantry. Two newspaper men of Brest drove there in an automobile to Investigate the situation at the Sis ter*. - school. Immediately after they had entered the community a boy sounded a bugle and crowds of peas ants swarmed from the Helds, armed with pitchforks and iron-bound sticks, shouting: "Long live tiie sisters!

Jeffries delivered two lucky punches as Fitzsimmons paused in his lighting to speak to him. and turned the tide. The battle was brief but noteworthy, and will live In pugilistic history. Fitzsimmons tried oh'-c to arise from the mat. but sank dmvn again in helplessness and heard himself counted out. where but a mo ment before he had apparently all the better of it. 1 will never fight again," said the bat tie-scarred veteran of the ring, when In had sufficiently recovered to talk. "Hie tight was won fairly and to the I** —t mail belong the laurels.” "You are the most dangerous man ali'-e,” said Jeffries in return, “and I consider myself lucky to have won W : '■ u 1 did.” i itzsinunons took his defeat with amazing good cheer. He walked to the center of the ring and raised his liami, addressed the multitude, saying: "The best man lias won. Had I beaten Jeffries to-night.

It was a fierce light, the fiercest I ever had, but I won. Yes. I got a good beating, as far as the marks of battle count, but then I rather expected that. 1 knew Fitzsimmons had a cutting pun' ll and would land it at some time ot the tight. Hut tile few marks and tlic loss of blood won't hurt a man. I look them and only waited for the op portunity to land my punch. I found out Fitzsimmons could not jar me even with Ids famous right, lie cut me tip. of course, but (lint did not hurt. 1 m-\cr was tired at any stage and was stronger than Fitzsimmons at all stages. 1 think that Fitzsimmons can vci defeat any other man than my self." <•!;.'•< rful in the face of defeat, full of praise for his vanquisher and writhing in agony on his eoiicli. surrounded by •i -.core of friends offering their con solation, Fitzsimmons, between short sentences interspersed with groans, announced that lie luid fought Ills last battle. He said: • I fought the I»est I could and the best man won. He is r. great lighter and had I been awarded the decision to-night. I would have turned around and given him the championship, for he is the only mat. >n the world capable of defending it.

Coventor Murphy introduced the President, and after the demonstra tion that followed had subsided Presi dent Roosevelt spoke as follows: In opening his address. President Roosevelt complimented the national guardsmen of New Jersey upon their soldierly beating and prolleleney, an.l cunt limed: "A man is of use as a national guardsman for Just exactly the same reasons as lie is of use as a citizen; and that is. if he sets to work with his whole heart to do Ids duty Tor the time being, to make himself thoroughly pro- Iteleiit lit the line of business he has taken up. A national guardsman who joins only to have a good time pretty generally does not have a good time and certainly makes a poor hand as :i guardsman. “I earnestly believe." continued the President, "ilint you will never get into battle, but if you do it is going to lie mighty important to lilt the other fellow; and you are going to be aide to do it largely in eoiisei|uence of the way you have put in your time knowing your rille until It Is Just part of your self until you .-an handle, take care of it and use It. It has lieeti the pride of the American army in the past that our troops have always used their rifles ef ficiently. We have prided ourselves on having an army of marksmen. Our army has given us a Just pride in It. because its constant and zealous effort has been to lake cure of Itself in the field and in all that pertains to the du ties of a soldier. "I think, gentlemen, that much help can lie given to the national guards of tie* states b.v the action of the govern ment. I want to see the national guard armed with the best and most modem weapons. | want to »»••■ tie* infantry with the Krai: Jorgens.ni and I want to see the artillery with the iliree poiut-two gun of tiie regular army. "I am happy to say that a bill has been passed through the lower house which will enable the national govern ment materially to nhl the national guard of the different stales. At the next session I firmly believe that we will got It through the Senate, and then I can guarantee the signature of tho President. ••| think our people have not always appreciated the debt they were under to the national guard. A man who goes into the national guard and does his duty fairly and squarely there puts the whole eountry under obligations to him. Always in our history It Inis lieeti tho ease, as it will he in the fu ture. that If war should arise, it is to 1m- iii. t mainly by the eitizen soldier. W. have in the regular army, oflleenHi as it is and filled with the type Of en listed men we have in it. an army which I firmly believe, for its size, is une.ptaled in the eivilized world; nml I mu sure that I can challenge tho most generous support from the na tional guard for the regular army of the I’nited States, lint that army is and must he. so small that in the event of trouble in the future, the great bulk of our troops must come, as in the past ihey have come, from the ranks of the people themselves; and in forming these regiments the good done by the prescmV in them of men who have served faithfully in the'national guard cannot 1m* overestimated. 'I’howe men are ready. They know what Is expect ed of them. They train others to do the work that Is needed.
