THE EXPEDITION. An expedition consisting of about 1,500 men, commanded by General Law tan, left Snn Pedro Macati, on the.river Faslg, on Saturday night, with the pur? pose of crossing Laguna de Bay, and capturing the town of Santa Cruz, on the eastern shore on the lake. The American troops were then, aa planned, n> sweep the country to the South. The force consisted of 200 picked sharp? shooters from the various regiments, Hawthorne's Mountain Battery, Gale's Btpiadron and three troops of the Fourth Cavalry, unmounted; Bronk's and Tappen's battalions of the Four? teenth Infantry: Linek's battalion of the First Idaho Infantry, und Frame's battalion of the First North Dakota Infantry, under General King. Tile flotilla of twenty canoes, towed by tugs and convoyed by the gunboats Laguna de Bay. Oeato and Napldan, and preceded by the launch containing General Lawton und General King, moved toward the Like Just as evening was selling In. It was a truly pic? turesque scene. The men carried rations for ten days with the lightest marching equipment. Genera! Law ton's plan was to reach Santa Cruz on Sunday morning at day? break, to capture or destroy any rebel" gunboats or shipping, to take the town, .-urn then to scourge the country to the eouth of the lake, n district not yet ex pi red by the Americans.

Lawton will pursue west? ward. OTIS. PARTICULARS OF RATTLE. Manila, April 10.?7 p. m.- -Santa Cruz was the Filipinos stronghold on Lake Laguna de Buy. and It fell Into the hands of General Lawton's expedition after some sharp, quick fighting, foi ic? ing one of the most interesting and im? portant battles of the war. The plans of the American comman? ders worked perfectly, with the excep? tion that the progress of the expedi? tion was delayed by the difficult navi? gation of the river- About fifteen hun? dred picked men. composed the expedi? tion, which was under the pers 'n.il command of General Lawton. on ac? count of the Illness of General King. These troops partly surrounded the city while the gunboats Laguna de Bay. Nnpldan and Oes:o, under the f^mmiinil of captain Grant, of the Utah Battery, shelled the city and outlying trenches. LAWTON'S BRAVERY. General Lawton and his staff accom? panied the troops, sometimes leading charges in Indian fighting tactics, which eventuplly resulted In the com? plete rout of the rebels, with the small? est amount of damage to the city and slight loss to the Americans. The expedition started from San Pe? dro Macati at dusk on Saturday. In? tending to capture Santa Cruz by as? sault at daybreak. But in navigating the shallow, tortuous Paslg river, per? haps through the cunning of the native pilots, who were not anxious to see the Americans successful, several boats grounded, and it was nearly dawn when the troops reached the lake. The expe? dition then steamed cautiously forward, I the Napldan and the Oesto a mile I uhead, and the Laguna de Bay bringing up the rear. SIGNAL. FIRES LIGHTED. Rebel signal llrcs. however, were lighted on the mountain tops, giving warning of the approach of the troops. It was noon before the white church towers of the city appeared in the shadow of the great volcanic mountain on a marshy plain dotted with occasion? al palm groves. At Casco a force of two hundred picked sharpshooters, under Major Weisenberger, mostly belonging to the First Washington Regiment, was run Into n shallow inlet about five miles south of the city, i A few shells were then sent toward the entrenchments of the rebels at the edge of the woods, sending the enemy scampering inland. Then a number of Americans jumped Into the water, and wading for about a hundred yards, crept forward and formed In line, covering the landing of the remainder, which was finished about 5 o'clock. The three troops of the Fourth Cavalry, unmounted, were sent ashore on a dangerous marshy point, directly south of the city under fire from the enemy's trenches, while In the town itself there was utter si? lence and not a sign of life. General Lawton, desiring to make an inspec? tion and to give the inhabitants an op? portunity to surrender, went on board the Laguna do Bay and accompanied by the Associated Press launch, steamed slowly to the dock, the whole fleet watching anxiously. When it was dis? covered by the glasses that the trneches and* stone buildings were swarming with white clad soldiers, the two boats withdr-ew-. receiving volleys from the trenches thrown up on the marshy plain north of the city. ENEMY'S TRENCHES SHELLED. The llotilla anchored in compact for? mation for the night, ready to resist any surprises from the rebel gunboats supposed to be In the lake. At sunrise to-day (Monday) the assault commenc? ed. The American line south of the city stretched two miles inland and with Its left sweeping the shore. It moved north, while the Fourth Caval? rymen on the point advanced toward the city, pouring volleys Into the trenches. Simultaneously the guub?ats hovered along the shore, shelling the wc ods ahead of the troops and driving the Filipinos Inland. The Gatlings cleared several trenches. IN FRONTIER FASHION. The whole brigade was divided Into squads of twelve, and the lighting was carried on in the old time frontier fash? ion, from behind trees, crawling through bushes, nr rushing across the open. The trenches that were not cleared by the gunboals gave consider? able resistance: when the line was hear? ing the city, and the Laguna de Bay and Oesto bombarded for an hour in the hope of making them too warm for occupancy, but did not succeed in clear? ing them entirely. A GALLING FIRE. General Lawton. with the Fourteenth Infantry Battalions, approached a nar row Iron bridge across a creek, on the south border of the town. Here a com? pany t.f Filipinos was Intrenched across the stream and behind a stone barri? cade at the entrance to the bridge. The Americans rushed forward hi sln glo file, in the face of n galling fire, demolished the barricade with their hands and drove the enemy from the trenches, killing a dozen. AN INTERESTING HOLIR. The Filipino soldiers in the town, secreted in various buildings and firing from thf windows, gave the invaders i.n Interesting hour. There was a regu? lar nest of them in tho stone Jail, which Is hedged in by a wall. This was a veritable pepper pot. The Americans singly or In pairs entered the houses and many warriors were taken pris? oners. A considerable body of Filipinos fled northward, crossing the open marshes, but the Gatlings poured upon them a deadly hail until they disappeared in the woods, playing dozens. Major Weisenberger deployed the sharpshooters along the shore nnd they creot steadily forward, aiding the Gat? lings. Finally ti large body was sent against the enemy in the woods, driving them toward the mountains. ' IN THE GOVERNOR'S PALACE. General Lawton established head? quarters at the elegant palace of the governor nnd a guard was inimediatcly placed in the church, as the sacred edifices are always the first objective point of 'ooters. Within an hour tho town was patrolled and ull looting rig Idly prevented. Almost all the Inhabitants had fled during tho two preceding nights, ami only a few Chinese shop-keepers have 1 emerged from hiding and resumed bus? iness. On the marshes north of the city were found -10 dead Filipinos?some terribly torn by shells?and many others wounded, to wh im the Americans offer? ed their canteens, as though they were I comrade?. A surgeon who traversed the field counted eighty killed, and General Lawton will report at least CS. One Filipino, attempting to make his j escape, .slashed viciously at Major Weisenberger, who ah >. and killed him. Yesterday the insurgents captured two men of the Fourteenth Infantry, while unarmed, but the Americans stole the guns of their captjns, clubbed them, hid In the trees over night and returned this morning. The gunboats th.s afternoon have been searching the Santa Cruz river for shipping. To-morrow the expedition will ptu-h forward, the Americans having de I stroyed miles of telegraph lines, out ting off insurgent communication east and west. SCOUTING PARTY FIRED UPON. Manila, April 10.-4:55 p. m.?The rebels along the railroad llred at a scouting party near Malolos to-day, wounding two members of the Kansas Regiment. The United States gunboat Bennlng ton has gone to Baler, on the east coast. In order to relieve a Spanish garrison of 47 men, which has been be? leaguered there since May. COUNSELLING DISARMAMENT. It is considered significant that the Oceanic Espanola, formerly rabidly In favor of the Filipino government, is now counselling disarmament, advising the Filipinos to accept the Inevitable. It has carefully analyzed the proclama? tion of the - United States-Philippine Commission, pointing out the advanta? ges of the delinite policy determined upon. WAR PAR FROM ENDED. Manila, April 7, via Hong Kong. April 10.?Though hundreds of Flllnlpos are dally returning to their homes and are desirous of resuming peaceful pursuits, and though the proclamation Issued by the United States-Philippine Commis? sion has given an impetus , to this movement, the war Is far from ended. One of the foremost American generals said recently: "We will see a hundred thousand sol? diers in the Philippines before tho Americans control the islands," and a majority of the army are of hi3 opin? ion. GREAT REINFORCEMENTS NFC ESS A RY. It Is generally considered that great, reinforcements are necessary, there j not being a sufficient number of Amer? ican troops In the archipelago to make conquest of the island of Luzon and hold the posts occupied, anil it Is ' thought that It would be cheaper in the leng run and have a better effect upon the natives to establish American su? premacy effectually and quickly than to temporize with a score of rebellions. All the stories told by prisoners and I friendly natives agree that a majority of the insurgents would be glad to quit, but that there are enough profession? al revolutionists left to infest the coun? try with bands of hundreds of men and to demoralize business for years to come. Some high Americans believe that the government would wisely ex? pend money In buying off Agulnaldo and his clique of Influential Filipinos. AMERICANS TOO OPTIMISTIC. Foreigners In Manila think the Amer? icans are too optimistic as to the effects of the proclamation. They say that the weakness of the proclamation lies In the fact that the natives have so long dealt with the Spaniards that they are tinable to realize what Its words mean and that tho purport of Its prom? ises Is anything but a snare. EAGER TO RETURN HOME. A majority of the United States vol? unteers are eager to return home; and "we did not enlist to fight niggers" Is a remnrk that Is constantly heard. While braver work than they are doing Is Impossible to find, they consider that there Is small glory In guerilla warfare, the dangers and hardships of which cannot be appreciated at home- The volunteers construe their enlistment, "to the close of the war," to apply to the war with Spain, and wish to be re? lieved by regulars. SPANISH DEFENSE OF MANILA. The Spanish system of defending Manila by a line of blockhouses may be adopted by the American authorities hero during the wet season, ns it re? quires fewer men than the trenches de? fences and lessens the chances of sick? ness among the defenders. Lieutenant Steubenberg, of the Idaho Regiment, a brother of the Governor of Idaho, has been placed on trial by court-martial for calling Major Figgins a coward in the nresence of his com? pany. It is expected that he will be dismissed from the service. SAMOA? COMMISSION President Names Bartlett Tripp as United States Representative, Ambn?*ador niilto IIa* Conference Wieb <3erinnn oflielals and Cable* WnNhinifion ?A Deadlock Predial* cU-charge*Again*tAdmiral Kautz (By Telegraph to Vlrglnlan-Pllot.) Berlin, April 10.?Since his Interview with Emperor William, the United States Ambassador, Mr. White, has met the Gerninn Minister of Foreign Affairs, Baron Von Bu"!ow, and the British Am? bassador here, Sir Frank Lascelles, and has cabled the result at considerable length In cipher to Washington. It Is understood on good authority that there Is nothing Indicative of belligerence In the dispatch, but that It related to the desire of the German government to stand by the Berlin treaty and return to the provisional arrangement made by the three consuls and hastening the ap? pointment and work of the commission as much as possible. A high Foreign Oilice official, speak? ing for Baron Von Buelow, said to the correspondent here of the Associated Press to-day: "We have not received a dlsoatch from the commander of the Falke and do not believe the story about the strained relations between the com? mander of the German warship and Ad? miral Kautz. Wo would have heard of It officially if it had been true. KAUTZ CHARGED WITH FALSIFY? ING. "We have not received any advices confirming the proclamation of General : e. At any rate, the argument of the Ann :!ean press that Herr Rose is re? sponsible for the new trouble Is wrong, ns such a proclamation, if Issued, came after Admiral Kautz'l action, which Is here considered to be a violation of the Samoa net. Admiral Knutz stated in his proclamation that all the three consults had expressed willingness to annul the provisional government. He stated an untruth .and Herr Rose could not be blamed for Issuing a counter proclama? tion. "However, the German government is thus far insufficiently Informed as to all of Herr Rose's doings, and there? fore will not assume at the outset that Herr Rose Is right throughout- In any case, we must await further news. The German commissioner will be appointed within a day or two. He will be thor? oughly unbiased." The'appointment of C. N. E. Eliot, of the British embassy at Washington, as the British member Of the Samoan Commission, 13 deemed satisfactory here. The National Zeitung reiterating the alleged Illegality of the action of Ad? miral Kautz in Samoa says: GERMANY WANTS. SATISFACTION. "Germany will have to strive by eve? ry diplomatic means to secure satlsfac tion for thia behavior of Admiral Kautz in contravention of the treaty." Referring to the statement that the State Department at Washington re? gards the enthronement of Tunus as fully in accordance with the treaty, which provides that the decision of the Chief Justice shall be final, the Nation? al Zeitung says: "This view is altogether opposed to the provisions of the treaty, according to which the unanmity of the repre? sentatives of the powers is essential. S A MOAN COMMISSIONER NAMED. Washington. April 10.?The President has selected Barllett Trlpp, of South Dakota, formerly Minister to Austria, as the United States representative on the Samoan joint commission. Mr. Trlpp is at present in Yankton, S. D. The olllclals of the Slate De? partment say that he is as well lit ted for the mission as any person who could have been named outside of the State Department proper. Mr. Trlpp i will be called to Washington immedt- j ately to receive his instructions, for our government is disposed to assent to the desire of the German government that the commission shall proceed to the scene uf activity at the earliest pos? sible moment. The commissioners will not go to Sa? moa equipped with identical instruc? tions. This Is a matter of regret here, but It is felt to be inevitable If the par? ties to the pending negotiations persist in the present attitude. In such cases the proceedings of the commission will be all ad referendum; the body hav? ing little power Itself, but all of its acts being subject to the approval of the principals. The German proposi? tion is to authorize lite commissioners to deal with the situation as they find It. but under the limitation that they must bo unanimous in ordering action. A DEADLOCK LOOKED FOR. But It is apprehended that arriving at Apia, the commissioners will instantly take positions in support of their re? spective consuls, and thus lead to a deadlock. The State Department hns been noti? fied that the German Government raises the question of legality of nil that has been done at Apia since tlu middle of March. This is an Intimation that it wishes to restore the status at that date, when, according to the State Departments reports, the provisional government erected through the efforts of the German olllclals. Rose and Unf fel, controlled everything. This slate of affairs Admiral Kautz considered to be In absolute violation of ihe Berlin treaty. If there Is any attempt to re? vert to the preceding conditions, tho i United States Government will Insist that it be to a period anterior to this date, and that the only status to be recognized be that existing at the be? ginning of February, tit tho moment when Chief Justice Chambers, In the exorcise, it is asserted, of his function under the treaty of passing upon all questions ns to the succession to tho throne of Samoa, declared Mataafa in? eligible and Mallctoa Tunus to be king.

Quav, were called to the bar of ihe Court of Quarter Session to-day, and after many months of vexatious delay, the trial of the two defendants was begun. Judge Cralg Biddle, one of the oldest and most respected members of the bench, was "the trial ju,dge. District At? torney Kothermel, alter two hours had been spent in selecting a jury, elected to try the ex-Senator first on that um of the live indictments (in which he and his son are variously named), which charges Mr. Quay and the late State Treasurer Benjamin J. Haywood with conspiracy In using the State funds tor their personal benelit and profit and In a manner unauthorized by law, This action practically leaves the cx Sciiutor alone on trial. The only witness examined to-day, Mr. Barlow, receiver of the People's Bank, led to the first clash between counsel, und apparently indicated that a determined legal battle, replete with knotty points of law. will be fought. The District Attorney culled Mr. Bar? low to identify books and papers found by him when he assumed the receiver? ship. Mr. Shapley, of counsel for the de? fense, undertook to cross-examine the witn< as with respect to his knowledge of whether certain books, which the de? fense, it is understood, claims are miss? ing, are Included In those testified to by the witness. This was objected to, and after repeated consultations among the counsel for the defense and several other efforts to obtain an answer to the question in answer form, It was abandoned and Mr. Shapley said he would begin his cross-examination in the morning.

ORIGIN OF THE RIOT. The trouble resulting. In to-day's riot began last night when one hundred dep? uty marshals were called out Into tho Flatham and Penwoll mining district to protect several families of negroes who were endeavoring to load household ef? fects, preparatory to leaving for Iowa, and were being prevented by negro guards armed with rifles furnished by the Pana Coal Company, who claimed the goods the negroes were moving were company properly. The deputies guarded the negroes while they loadd their goods in wagons, conveyed them to the railroad cars and packed them for shipment. The negroes, their wives nnd children were then inarched to Union Miners' Hall, where they were fed and cared for by white union min? ers, and given protection by a guard of 50 deputy sheriffs, It being feared that negroes who did not wish them to leave Pnna would interfere nnd attempt for? cibly to prevent their departure. THE FIRST FIGHTING. During the night, while deputies were guarding tho negroes In the Penwell district, they were tired upon hy un? known persons, supposed to have been' negroes nnd private guards at the Pen well mine, nnd fully 200 shots were ex? changed. The firing greatly terrorized the repidents of thnt section of the city who appealed to Chief Deputy Cheny for protection. Deputy Cheney there? upon sent a special detail of deputies armed with Springfield rifles, who pa? trolled nil the streets and succeeded in restoring quiet before daybreak. Several netrroes were arrested, charg? ed with Inciting riot and to-day's riot? ing began while thev were on trial. ATTEMPT TO KILL SHERIFF.
