FORCED MATtCH OP MARCH.
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
"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
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.
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.

A ROMANTIC MARRIAGE.
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.

A Sharp Criticism by Competent
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
"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.

A detachment ot Boers, posted among
some thick bushes to the cast, main?
tained a most destructive fire on our

tnking cover which the Boers always
display, they were, generally speaking,
virtually invisible; and, although the
