From the dispatches in last Mon

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

Colonel Hare and Lieutenant Col
onel Howse, the latter of the Thirty-
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
"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
