Manila, Dec. 13.-10:50 p. m.?The fol? lowing dispatch, dated Cervantes, De? cember 5th, has been received from a correspondent of the Associated Press with Major March's battalion: "Major March, with Captains Jen kinson and Cunningham, Lieutenants Tonipkins, Rucker, McClelland and I Power and 125 men, is about starting for F-ontec, the principal town in the prov'i.^e of that name, to the north? east through an absolutely desolate courury and over a mountain 10.000 feet high. He Is pursuing Aguinaldo, whose escort, now reduced to fifty J men. Is known to be there. TOO LATE. AS USUAL. "Major March, with 300 men. arrived nt Cervantes, in the heart of the Ti'.ad Mountains, on the evening ot Decem? ber 3, about twenty hours behind Aguinaldo, who believed he had found an inaccessible refuge. On December 2 the American commander had a wonderful fight in a cloud-enveloped "mountain pass, 3,000 feet above the sea, completely routing General Gregorlo Del Pilar's force of 20D picked men In a position almost strong enough to rival Thermopylae. "General Filar died ait the front of his men, urging them to make a stand until the ball of a sharpsiiooter pierced his head. His followers tried to carry away the body, but were compelled to lay It down. HEARD NEWS AND RUN. "Two of the Americans were killed and were burled by their comrades where they fell. The others, carrying nine wounded, camped for the night on top of the mountain, an eminence of 4, 000 feet, (suffering greatly from the cold blasts. In the morning they moved down the trail to Dagaqui, where they learned that Aguinaldo, with a few men and three women, all carried on litters born by Igorrotes, had passed along the same trail to Cervantes, where he was during the fight. A runner had brought him the news of the death of his chief of staff. He was greatly affected, and prepared instantly for flight. THE CHASE RESUMED. "On arriving at Cervantes, Major March's battalion was without food, ex? cept rice, and had only a small supply of ammunition. Major March secured five days' ra? tions, made arrangements for his sick and wounded, and, having chosen 25 mounted and 100 unmounted men, re? sumed the chase nt daybreak. NAVAL OPERATIONS. Washington, D. C, Dec. 13.?The naval account of the operations of thfl ships in Luzon is contained in two cablegrams from Admiral Watson at Cavilc- The first rends as follows: "Cnvlte, Dec. 13, 1S99. "Burwell reports that the Wheeling landed a naval force and a detachment of troops, Kaiser commanding, sixteen miles north of Laloag, northwest of Lu? zon, and attacked the_clty yesterday, releasing 1,500 Spaniards. Am holding at the recuest of General Young. No casualties. WATSON." The second cablegram read: "Cavite, Dec. 13.?General Tirona, commanding Filipinos, unconditionally surrendered Aparrl and Caguyan prov? inces to Captain McCalla, of the New? ark, on the l'lth of December. Prince? ton and Helena at present In the river. All arms and ammunition surrendered. Tinora surrendered from patriotic mo. tivee to prevent further bloodshed. He was appointed Civil Governor by Mc?

AN ACCOMMODATING BROTHER COMES TO HIS ASSISTANCE. (Special to Virginian Pilot.) Richmond, Va., Dec. 13.?A romatlc story culminated here at C o'clock this afternoon, when Marlon Lambert, an lS-year-old boy was married to Miss Florence M. Parker, the beautiful daughter of Dr. *W. W. Parker, lately deceased, who achieved considerable fame at the head of Parker's Battery during the Civil War. She also Is but IS years of age. Young Lambert is the son of the founder of tho Lambert Pharmical Company, of St Louis, the only listerino manufactory in the United States^ His private income is said to be $30,000 a year. Owing to ?his youth, he having but recently taken off short pants, his guardian, his ftither being dead, refused to give his consent to tho wedding. He was, therefore, unable to obtain a marriage license here, and he at first proposed to take the whole party in his private car to Washington. In lieu of this plan, however, he to-day Induced his wife's brother-in-law, G. Carlton Jack? son, to qualify in the Chancery Court as his guardian. The new guardian at once gave his cofts^nt to the marriage, ?which was demurely celebrated at the residence of the bride's sister. The couple left to-night for Washington, and will go thence to New York and Boston, returning to Richmond, whence they go to St. Louis. Bwf the II* Kfod Yon Haia Always Bought PEOPLES' FORUM.

The ignorant and uneducated shall he heard here equally with the learned. A Sharp Criticism by Competent Authority. Editor Virginian-Pilot: The proceedings of the Select Council last, night were rich and racy. A pretty full membership was present, and numerous interested spectators were there hovering around the grave and reverend seignors. It is very usual for outsiders to criticise pretty severely the action of these bodies; and their proceedings last night afforded a very Inviting field in that department; but it does not often hap? pen that uny of their own members give them a dig under the ribs.?such a thing is rare?so rare that a notable instance was rurnlshcd us at that sit? ting, which Is worth recording- The following is clipped rrom the Virgin Ian-Pilot's account of that meeting: "A resolution requiring the Street, Sewer and Drain Commission to as? certain the cost of extending Tripoli street to Plume slteet. lind out the owners of the land, and that the City Engineer make a plat of land and properties, etc.. was offered by Mr. Consolvo, Board of Street, Sewer and Drain Commissioners. "Mr. Pannill objected on the ground that this Council needed to go slowly in such matters. There was no likeli? hood of -the street being opened by this Council, and it was simply putting themselves up as targets for news? paper criticism to consider the matter at all. Some of the Council had friends who might run for ofllcc and the news? papers were already doing enough nnd had enough to work on without this Council giving food for more talk." "Some ot the Council had friends who might run.for olllcc." Aha! "And the newspapers were already doing enough, AND HAD ENOUGH TO WORK ON." Aha. again! Mr. Pannill Is a. competent witness, nnd doubtless knows what he Is talking about. But for him to rise in his place, nnd upon his olllclal responsibility to make these grave imputations challenged, wns. to put It In l.ts mild? est form, remarkable. Nevertheless, they did the thing he criticised. NOT A COUNCILMAN. December 13th, 1899. THE JOLO TREATY. THE SULU ISLANDS AND THE UNITED STATES. (By Telegraph to Virginian-Pilot.) Washington, D.

TUESDAY'S BATTLE. This morning (Tuesday) both sides occupied the positions they held be? fore the battle. Tho greatest bravery was displayed by both officers and men. The wounded include Lieutenant Col? onel A. E. Codrington and Captain Sterling, both of the First Battalion of the Coldstre'am Guards!. A detachment ot Boers, posted among some thick bushes to the cast, main? tained a most destructive fire on our right., With the remarkable talent for tnking cover which the Boers always display, they were, generally speaking, virtually invisible; and, although the enemy's artillery was practically si? lenced, his rifle lire was so persistent and concentrated, as well as usually well aimed, that It was absolutely im pr*?Ible for the British infantry to take the position by assault.
