Ferguson came down from Audubon, Tuesday, with his hearse, attending the funeral of Mrs. James Gearlieart. From the dispatches in last Mon day's dailies our fellow townsman, Dentist John Bishop, gleaned the glad tidings that his brother, Mr. Albert Bishop, of the Third United States Artilley had just arrived, in company with Lieutenant J. C. Gil more and nineteen companions, at Manila, and our friend Bishop is delighted at the prospects of again meeting his brother again this side the grave. The following story of their captivity may be of interest: Manila, January 7.—Lieutenant J. C. Ginnore, of the United States Gun boat Yorktown, who was captured by the insurgents, last April, near Baler on the coast of Luzon, and rescued a few days ago by Colonel Luther R. Hare, of the Thirty-Third Volunteer Infantry, sat today in the apartments of his sister, Mrs. Major Price, at the Hotel Oriente in Manila and told a remarkable story of his eight months of captivity, ending with his dramatic deliverance from a death that seemed inevitable. The steamer Venus came into har bor last evening from Vigan, in the province of South Ilocos, with Lieu tenant Gilmore and nineteen other American prisoners, including sev en of his sailors of the Yorktown. Lieutenant Gilmore, after report ing, came ashore and hobbling along with the aid of a cane to the Hotel Oriente, where American ladies and officers were waltzing to lhe strains of Aginaldo's March." Although tanned and ruddy from exposure he is weak and nervous, showing the results of hardships. He speaks warmly of Aguinaldo and very bitterly against General Tino, declaring that while in the foamer's jurisdiction he was treated splendidly, but that after he fell into the hands of Tino he suffered everything. Colonel Hare and Lieutenant Col onel Howse, the latter of the Thirty- I i„ party, 011 December 18th, near the head waters of the Abalut River after they had been abandoned by the Filipinos and were expecting death from savage tribes around them. When the rescuing force reached them they were all nearly starved, but were building rafts in the hope of getting down the river to the coast. Lieutenant Gilmore made the following statement to the Associated Press Correspond ent: "The Filipinos abandoned us on the night of December 16tli. We had reached the Abalut River, near its source, that morning and the Fili pinos rafted us over and then we went down the stream, along a very rough trail, guarded by a company of Filipinos. That night we were separated from this guard and another company armed with Mau sers was put in charge of us. I sus pected something and questioned the lieutenant in command. He said: I have orders from General Tino to shoot you all, but my conscience forbids. I shall leave. 3'Oti here.' I begged him for two rifles to protect lis from savages, adding that I would give him letters to the Ameri cans who would pay him well and keep him from all harm. He refus ed this, however, saying that he would not dare to comply. Soon afterwards he left with his company. We had seen some savages in war paint and were prepared lo fight them with cobble stones, trie only weapons that were available to us. The next morning we followed the trail of the Filipono soldiers, feel ing that it was better to stick to them than be murdered by savages, but we could not catch up with them. Then I ordered the men to build rafts in the hope of floating down the river it was a forlorn hope, but I knew the river must empty into the sea somewhere. I was so weak myself that I did not expect to get out but thought some of the men might. O11 the morning of December 18th while we were at work 011 the rafts the Americans came toward us yelling. One of my men shouted: 'They are on us!' He was lashing a raft with bamboos I however, knew it was not the yell of savages. These rescuing troops thought that we had Filipino guards and called to us in English to lie down so they could shoot them. That was the finest body ot officers and men I ever saw. One poor fel low, Charles Baker, of the Third Artillery, formerly one of the pris oners, became too weak to travel and the Filipino guards bayoneted him during the last flight through the mountains. Lieutenant Gilmore could not speak enthusiastically enough of the one hundred and forty picked men who rescued himself and his party."
