Japanese Report That the
City Is Destroyed.
INSURGENTS KINDLE BLAZE.
Great Loss of Life Reported Among
tne Spanish Residents of
the City.
After Disposing of the Fleet In fllnnlU Hay
Commodore Dewey Gave Ills Attention
to the City, lleluj; AtnUted by the lnur
gent Another Account Hay the Naval
Hero I Now Kxerutlng the Dutlee of
Governor General at Manila.
Madrid, May 7. The Imparcial says
the officials of the German embassy
here have received a dispatch from
Hong Kong, saying that the American
Commodore In Manila Lay is reported
to have effected a landing at Cavite
after a fresh bombardment of that
place.
London, May 7. A dispatch from
Shanghai elves what purports to be
the Japanese report of the fighting ac
Manila, received via the island of For
mosa. It eays that after disposing of
the Spanish fleet and Cavite Commo
dore Dewey bombarded Manila Itself.
The city, it appears, was soon on Are
In many parts, being kindled, It Is add
ed, chiefly by the insurgents. Great
loss of life is reported to have occurred
among the Spanish residents of the
city.
Boston, May 7. The following tele
gram received by F. T. Vlles of Boston
from a friend in Singapore was read at
the banquet of the Electric club:
"Reliable information received here
corroborates news of Dewey's victory
at Manila and says he is now execut
ing the duties of governor general
there."
NO NEWS AT WASHINGTON.
Nothing of an Ofllclat Nature Concerning
Commodore Dewey.
"Washington, May 7. The fifth day
since the battle of Manila opens with
out bringing the slightest trace of news
of that engagement from any official
source to the navy department. THa
state department was in equal Ignor
ance, notwithstanding the fact that It
had taken steps to receive the earliest
information that might reach - Hong
Kong, through Mr. Wildman, the Unit
ed States consul at thatpolnt. There
is no apprehension expressed, however,
as to the safety of the American fleet
at Manila, though there is a dawning
suspicion that Commodore Dewey was
not able to subdue the forts at Corre
gldor island and the defenses of Manila
proper Immediately.
From the meager reports received
from Manila before the interruption of
cable communication It was not made
quite clear that the Spanish forts at
Cavite were forced to surrender Imme
diately succeedins the naval engage
ment. If that were the case, Commo
dore Dewey would be under the neces
sity of destroying or capturing them
afterwards In order to ensure the safe
ty of his own fleet. Likewise It would
be necessarily to silence the Corregldor
guns In order to avoid being bottled up
In the harbor. Both of these tasks take
not only time but ships, and it Is not to
be supposed that Commodore Dewey
would feel Justified In sending one of
his vessels away for the simple purpose
of carrying news when she was needed
in the fight.
CONTROLS THE rillLirriNES.
Government of the Inland Said To He
Carried on by Dewey.
New Tork, May 7. A dispatch from
London says: Commodore Dewey has
followed up his first victory with a sec
ond. The Americans are In control of
the Philippines. Manila is captured by
the American fleet. The government Is
now being carried on by Commodore
Dewey. This news reached London In
a private dispatch from Hong Kong. It
Is the first news from Manila that does
not bear the stamp of Spanish author
ship. How the news reached there is
not stated, but it. is possible that It
came over In some swift merchantman
which was lying in the harbor during
the engagement and which set sail be
fore Dewey started the dispatch boat.
This private telegram confirms the
news of the destruction of the Spanish
fleet and the sinking of the flagship
Relna Christina. From the same source
It Is learned that General Alejardrlno,
the rebel leader who was taken over
from Hong Kong by the American com
mander, landed on the coast from one
of the American transports, taking with
him a quantity of ammunition and
arms for the insurgent forces that hov
ered about the city. It Is thought that
these insurgents lent a brave hand
when Dewey attacked the defenses of
the city and helped to bring about a
speedy end.
GETTING THE PEKING BEADY.
Fast Mall Kteamer Will Soon Start for the
Philippine.
Vallejo, Cal., May 7. The United
States cruiser Charleston has been
formally placed in commission and her
crew of 200 men, with thirty marines,

king at San Francisco she will be

An order was Issued to the navy yard

Uts. shin fitters, copcersinUll8 and

NEWS FR03I DAWSON" dir.
An Eftcanafc k, Bllch., Man Comet Over the
TralL
Victoria, B. C, May 7. Advices from
Skaguay, Alaska, under date of May 2,
fay: ' Or.e more Yukoner. II. It. Miller,
formerly of Escanaba, Mich., has suc
ceeded in coming from Dawson to the
coast over the trail. He left Dawson
on March SI. arriving here on April 27.
It Is his opinion that navigation will
open between Dawson and St. Michael
about June 1, or two weeks earlier than
usual, cwing to the warm weather
that prevails on the Yukon. He looks
for a general break up of the Ice this
side cf Dawson before the middle of
May.
Miller says the Ftcamers Bella and
Weare will be likely to take the first
consignment of this year to St.
Michael. They are now with the Vic
toria and St. Michael In the ice near
Circle City. When the river opens the
Bella and Wcare will go to Fort Ham
lin for provisions, taking out the gold
on her return from Dawson. The Vic
toria and St. Michael will steam to
Dawson, waiting there to take prospect
ing parties to the Stewart river and
other recently explored territories. Ful
ly $20,000,000 in gold will leave Daw
son this summer, according to Miller's
statements.
RUSSELL A- ALGER, SECRETARY OF WAR
Hon. Russell A. Alger of Michigan, secretary of war, combines New Eng
land anoestry with western enterprise. He ia a captain of commerce, having
made $12,000,000 in lumber, but with him business is only an incident cf life,
his ambitions being military and political. He has Beveral times barely missed
a presidential nomination, but bis pride is in his war reoord and association.
The present emergency affords him an opportunity equal to his ambition.
No new strikes have been reported
near Dawson, but Miller says that re
cent developments show that Sulphur
and Dominion creeks are each fully as
rich as Bonanzas. He confirms the
ctory of big discoveries on Monte Crlsto
island. '
COLLEGE PRANK SERIOUS.
Ann Arbor Sophomore Is Shot In a Ilalr
Cuttlng Scrape.
Ann Arbor, Mich.,' May 7. For the
past two weeks the members of the
freshmen and sophomore classes have
been engaged in a good natured rivalry
to see which could cut the most hair oft
the heads of their rival classmates.
Twenty-five victims have already suc
cumbed, but affairs took a serious turn
In the morning about 2 o'clock, when
a student of the freshman law class,
who was returning home, was set upon
by a crowd of hair cutters.
The crowd demanded to know what
class he belonged to. He was scared
and took to his heels without replying.
The crowd chased him, when suddenly
he turned and fired five shots from a
revolver Into the pursuers. One shot
took effect In the right arm of a stu
dent of the sophomore literary class.
The wound was apparently not serious,
but the bullet'has not yet been found.
Friends cf the Injured man Immedi
ately hustled him out of the way and
every effort has been made to keep his
name away from the faculty of the
university. That body had determined
to put a stop to all sky-larking, and
had warned the under-classmen that
any one caught cutting hair would be
expelled. The man who did the shoot
ing has not been found.
Children Pay Tribute to Corrlgan.
New York, May 7. Over five thou
sand children from the parochial schools
of New York paid tribute to Archbish
op Corrlgan at St. Peter's cathedral,
on Fifth avenue. The gathering of the
children was a part of the programme
of the sliver Jubilee of the archbishop's
episcopate. Under the direction of the
Rev. John Kean, pastor of St. James'
church, the children sang their songs of
praise. Archbishop Corrlgan, when
he came to address the Juvenile audi
ence, said that their voices, comlngled
In song, had brought tears to his eyes.
TO ATTACK CANARIES.
Latest Report of the Intentions of
Admiral Sampson.
REMOVAL OF MUTISM Sl'IUECTS.
Government Told to See That They Were
Taken Off the Island by the Washington
Naval Strategic Hoard Power Make
Overtures Again to Great Dritaln Look
ing to Interference, but Without Success
A Fact Which Hears Much Significance,
London, May 7.A story is published
here to the effect that the British ad
miralty has been notified by the Wash
ington naval strategic board to remove
the British subjects from the Canary
Islands, and it Is said this accounts for
the British second-class cruiser Charyb
dls being ordered to Las Palmas and
leads to the conclusion that Rear Ad
miral Sampson may attack the Canary
Islands, which would either draw the
Spanish fleet out of Cadiz, or give the
United States a naval base from which
to attack Spain.
London. May 7. Certain powers, It
has been learned, have again made
overtures to Great Britain looking to
intervention In the war between Spain
and the United States, but Great Brit
ain persisted In her refusal to take part
In any such movement. It Is a signifi
cant fact that the British naval author-
Itles have decided to Immediately com
mission two new battleships Just com
pleted. Madrid, May 7.A mob at Murcia
has fired the town hall, pillaged and
fired the law courts and released the
prisoners from the local Jail.
AS TO A IIRITISII ALLIANCE.
Talk In Paris Is That England Agrees with
the United States.
London, May 7. The Daily Chroni
cle's Taris correspondent says: "Ar
rangements between England and the
United States on the subject of the
Philippines are looked upon In the best
Informed circles here as already half
settled. No other conference is consid
ered necessary until the war has been
brought to an end, either by force of
events or by the amicable Intervention
of Europe.
"Austria Is Indicated as taking the
Initiative In mediation, but In diplomat
ic circles a conference of the powers
Is considered the only practical solu
tion of the problem which touches the
mission of Europe In the far east. I
have reason to believe that England
would only take part in such a confer
ence with the United States by her side,
and that great hesitation on the part
of the government of the latter power
would be shown to a choice of Paris as
the place of meeting."
Minister Polo to Leave Canada.
Toronto, Ont., May 7. Senor Polo 7
Bernabe will leave Canada at ence. He
has made all preparations to start for
Spain. It Is said here that he goes by
request, and that the British minister
at Washington Is responsible for his
departure. At any rate Polo received a
dispatch from Madrid, Instructing him
to come home at once. It Is believed
that the message was sent to the late
minister to the United States at the re
quest of Lord Salisbury.
Say Dewey Has Iteen Entrapped.
London, May 7. The Spanish authori
ties are intimating that Commodore
