The corporal tells a straight story, giving

G 'ucral Mu"Arthur hat returned to Tar

Agulnaldo's former residence. During the

not a shot was llreil. The liihnbllnnts of

the Amerlcu-is' Intentions, he announced
that tby intended to garrison nil the towns
on the railroads. Iluud eds of men are lu
tho Held, harvesting rice, along the railroad.
The forelguurs In tho territory ussert that
Agulnnldo was not expecting the American
advance for a month, when the rnliis would
have Mulshed, lie bad permitted a large
part of his army to scatter to their homes
and do the harvesting. The soldiers bud
bidden their rilles ubout their homos. If
this Is true, muuy rlllos are likely to be
brought In, to secure the 30 offered for

A llllllliiol Stroke.
Captain L-onhuuser's capture of the town
of O'Do.-mel wat it remarkable stroke. His
command consisted of three eompinHs of
tbo Twenty-fifth ltegiment. Captain Al
bright and LieiitenntilH Bates and Morton
commanding, lie started at six o'clock lit
night and marched fifteen miles iu tho mud.
Toe only rvgular upproach was along a road
uud over a river whose bridge was strongly
fortflled. The entrance of the towu was eu
treneln d. The soldiers lcrt the road nnd
followed a cattle trail to the reur of the
town. At daylight tho command supurnted,
oae compuiiy advancing on the back of the
town nud the other flanking it. Tbe Insur
gent force was asleep, except those at tho
outposts, who were euptured without shoot
ing. One platoon ran down the mala street
to u trench and the other deta.'bnieuts mude
a quick search, of the houses. An ofllcer,
describing the scene, said:
"The negro soldiers were pouring out of
every house, dragging sleepy, frighten, d
Filipino warriors by the collar uud kicking
them Into the street. It was a race to see
which company wou'd corral tho most Fili
pinos. The women and children, believing
the stories told that the negro soldiers were
cannibals, shrieked frightlully. After nil the
rifles bad been secured the Filipinos were
surprised by being told to go to their homes
und attend to work."
BATTLE NEAR BELMONT.
Uenerul Metliuen lteporls That tho llrlt
Ish Were Victorious -A Numher of
OlHcers Were Wounded.
London, (By Cable.) The Secretary of
War received the following despatch.
1 through Gen. Forostlur-Walker, from Gen.
Methuen, duttd Belmont, November 23:
"Attacked the ouemy at daybreak. He
was In a strong position. Three ridges
were carried lu succession, the last attack
being prepared by shrupuel, 1
"The infantry behaved splendldiy, and
received support from the navui brlgu le and
artillery. The enemy fought with courage
and skill. Had I attacked Inter, I shuuld
have had far heavier loss.
"Our victory was complete. Have taken
forty prisoners. Am burying a good num
ber of the Boers, but tbe greater part of the
enemy's killed and wounded weru removed
by their comrades. Have euptured a largo
number of horses and cows, and destroyed
a large quantity of ammunition."
The situation in Natal- remains obscure.
Fighting Is reported at both Estcourt und
Lndysinlth. It was at first reported that
beuvy flriug had been heard iu the direction
of Willow Grange. lua llug to u belief that
Oeuural lllldyard bad mude a sortie. Later
despatches aunounce that General White
sortled from Ludysmlth and Inflicted a dem
oralizing defeat upon the Bjurs.
It would be premature to give full cred
ence to either reporr. What Is quite certain
Is that Ladysmith, Kttcourt aud Mooi lilver
Hlatlons are all Isolated, and tbe B Jure seem
able, after detaching enough troops to hold
three British forces aggregating 17,000 men,
to push on toward l'loternuuitzburg wlib
some 7,000 men.
A disquieting feature of the whole cam
paign Is the fact that all the advancing
British generals report meeting the Boers iu
force. Iu view of the brilliant success of
General Jouliert In partially paralyzing the
relieving columns, the question Is being
asked, what would base happened bad he at
the outset of the war, Instead of silting
down before Ladysuiltli, pushed ou to I'll
terniarltzburg' General Gatuere'i) ro rrt that tho Dutch
are rising Increases public anxiety, us it

MORE ARMORED CRUISERS.
Sceretnry Long llellcves That the "avy Is
In Need of Three fhlps of This t'lnss,
Washington, (Apr-clnl.) - Secretary Long
will recommend to Congress a program for
new naval construction, which will be In ac
cordance with the policy that has been pur
sued for tho past three years. He will ask
for three armored cruisers of about 13,0011
tons displacement: three protected cruisers
of about 8,000 tons, nnd a dozen gunboats of
900 tons, making clgteen ships in all.
Tho armored cruisers will be enlarged
Brooklyns, Improved In many details, nnd
will be the biggest shl S In the United Mates
navy. In tho opinion of experts they will
be equal to the battleships of several naval
powers In strength, and will have great
speed.
The protected cruisers will bo of the
Olympla type, fleet, powerful sea boats, with
numerous batteries of guns of medium cali
ber nnd rapid flrers, relying for protection
ngalnst gun fire entirely upon a curved pro
tective deck nud eonl bunkers.
The gunboats will be about the size of tho
little .Marietta, and from their light draft
will be of great service Id the shallow waters
of the gulf ports and In tbe Chinese rivers,
as well as In the new Insular possessions of
tho United Htates, for police duty In times of
peace. The program is made up without
reference to what has already been author
ized in thn way of new ships. In other
words, the ships will he additional to those
authorized by tho last Congress, although
most of the tatter have not been coutractcd
for, becauao of the. armor limitation.

that It was believed that Admiral Dewey
was about to take this step, nnd that his
friends were dismayed at tho mere sugges

taken a deep interest In raising tho funds
for the bouse vigorously denied tbe truth' of

Admiral Is responsible for tbo Admiral's act.

Oeronn, Luzon, (By Cable.) General

78 miles north of Manila. Ho then pushed
on to Pnnlquo and Moneada, a lew miles

Tho Filipino soldiers had Jled from Oero

was destroyed by them.
Oerona Is tho first town along the Manila
Dngupan Railway Line, from which the resi

Americans. Tho priests offered quarters In
tho church and convent. Oerona Is the scat
of heavy English sugar Interests.
The people hero are of a better class than
the Americans have usually found. General
MacArthur said:,
"We seem to bo entering a different polit
ical atmosphere. The people of Oerona
seem to be less attached to Agulnaldo's
causo thnn those In many towns we have
entered on tho railroad line."
Thu trip here was a hard one and occupied
six hours In covering seven miles and a half,
most of tho time being spent In fording a
quarter of n mile of the flood running out of
the Rio Tarlae. General MacArthur has no
wagons. Tack mules and nntivo bearers
carry nil his supplies.
The command moved northward nt day

Slnven's scouts moved up the rnllwny
track toward Panique, a few miles beyond
Oerona. On the way they encountered nn
entrcuchod pnrty of Filipinos, whom thoy
drove back. Then, entering the town, they
captured four locomotives and 13 cars. They
learned that 500 Filipino soldiers had left
tho town the same afternoon.
Lnter, all of Gcni ral MacArthur's troops
arrived at Panique from Oerona. The rall
rond beyond Pnnlquo hns not been destroyed.
The captured railway stock is being re
paired to handle supplies.
Genernl MacArthur discovered at Panique
Mnjor Joneson, formerly chief surgoon on
the stnff of tbe Filipino commander, Gen

is about to return there to resume bis prac

that "all respectable Filipinos are disgusted
with tho behavior of the insurgents und are

Moneada, Luzon, (By Cable.) Advano
Ing through the country by train from

The train was stalled here by tho wreck of
two locomotives nnd 64 cnrs, placed by tho
Filipinos to block the track. The freight
bouse and depot hnve been hurned.
No attempt will bo mndo to save the
wrecked rolling stock, but the track will bo
