COLOMBIAN REBELS WILL BE SUCCESSFUL They Gain an Important Vic tory Over Government. CAPTURE OF COROSEAL It Is an Important Seaport and Gives the Insurgents a Base From Which to Operate—Federal Troops Join the Rebels—General Foreign News. Colon, Colombia, via Galveston, Nov. 10. —Advices have been received here announcing the complete defeat of the rebel forces at Buena Ventura. The government forces, it is added, are in hot pursuit of the rebels who are said to be burning villages while retreating. ? : Gauyaquil, Ecuador, Nov. 10.—Im portant news indicating that the Liberal rebellion in Colombia will result in the overthrow of the government has been received from Panama by the steamer Loa. Strict censorship on the government wires has prevented tele graphic news from being sent out, but information showing that important military operations have been conducted within the last month and that the gov ernment has met with severe reverses has reached the isthmian city. General Uribe, chief of the Liberal forces in the. east, has wen an impor tant victory in the capture of Coroseal, one of the government’s strongholds in the Habana region of Bolivar. This city, which has 10,000 inhabitants and is important, will give the rebels a bass from which to operate against the Car ribean ports of Caratagena and Barran quila, was held by a government force about 1,000 strong under General Rodri guez. Uribe attacked with a force of 1,500 men. After several sharp engagements he surrounded the place and General Rodriguez, seeing it would be useless to resist, surrendered on Oct. 15. General Rodriguez and his officers were allowed to depart with swords and baggage and all the necessary supplies and animals to transport their belong ings. The soldiers were deprived of their guns and ammunition and then set free on parole. This conduct Qn the part of Uribe and the prestige of the victory made most of the men of Rodri guez’ army his partisans and they were incorporated into his force. Revolution Will Succeed. With the fall of Barranquila it is gen erally recognized that the insurrection will be a success and the government is making every effort to defend the place. General Pinson, minister of war, took personal command of a force of 3,000 men recently and started from the capi tal to operate against Uribe. It is feared, however, that his army has been intercepted by the rebels in Colima Erovince, north of Bogota, as nothing as been heard from him in Barran quila. Buena Ventura is besieged by a strong force of Liberals and blockaded by the rebel steamers Gaitan and Salinas. The government gunboat Boyaca is held in the harbor. It is partially disabled and unable to give battle to the insurgent craft. The city is defended by 700 govern ment troops, well entrenched. A de termined attack was made by the Lib erals Nov. 4, but it was repulsed. The government commander, however, is fearful that he will not be able to resist much longer. Cali, one of the chief cities of the Cau cus valley, across the mountains from Buena Ventura, is also closely besieged. Sharp fighting took place there Nov. 3, the insurgents making an attack on the Intrenched defenders. THE BOERS LOST HEAVILY. Two Hundred Burghers Make a Gal lant Charge But Are Stopped. London, Nov. 10. Lord Roberts, telegraphing from Johannesburg under date of Nov. 8, reports to the war office as follows: “General Knox states that he takes no credit for the successful engagement of Nov. fl, which was due in the first instance to the determination of Le Gal lias never to lose touch with the enemy, secondly, to the able way in which de Lisle handled the firing line after Le Gallias and Ross were wounded. “Smith-Dorrien reports that the two days’ fighting mentioned was very hard. His force consisted of 250 mouted troops from the Fifth lancers, the Royal Cana dian dragoons and mounted rifles, two Royal Canadian artillery guns, four guns of the Eighty-fourth battery and 900 infantry of the Suffolks and Shrop- Bhires. ••The Boers were met soon after start ing from Belfast and hung on the front, flank and rear until the Komati river was reached, where they stood at a very strong position. From this they were forced to retire by a wide turning move ment by the Suffolks and the Canadian mounted troops around their flank. All the first day Boer signals were lighted in all directions and before morning they were strongly reinforced. “Our casualties the first day were six killed and 20 wounded, chiefly of the Shropshires, who fought splendidly. The next day the Boers tried to seize the strong position on the bank of the Komati from which they were beaten Nov. 6, but were prevented by Colonel Evans with the Canadian mounted troops apd two of the Eighty-fourth guns, galloping 2 miles and seizing it in the nick of time. The rear on the re turn march was defended by Colonel Lessard with the Canadian dragoons and two royal Canadian guns under Lieutenant Morrison. “In the afternoon an event unprece dented in this war occurred when some 200 mounted Boers suddenly charged the rear guard to within 70 yards, when they were stopped by the Canadian dragoons. During the fighting 16 of the Canadians fell into the hands of the enemy, who treated them kindly and re leased them after removing their own dead and wounded, during which the Canadians were compelled to lie on their faces in order that they might not see how heavily the Boers suffered. Our oewialties were two killed and 12 wound ed?* WHY COUGH Dr. Bull’s Cough Syrup cures Cough or Cold at once. Conquers Croup, Whooping-Cough and Measle-Cough without fail. All mothers praise it.

Kansas City, Nov. 10. —The Stilwell faction, socalled, has, in the United States district court, filed a demurrer to the bill of complaint filed Oct. 23 by John W. Gates and other security hold ers of the Guardian Trust company ask ing that a receiver be appointed. The demurrer, which will probably be passed on when the hearing of the application for a receiver is heard, sets forth in part: “That the bill of complaint does not state facts sufficient, even if true, as al leged, to entitle complainants to the ap pointment of a receiver or for the grant ing of an injunction or any other relief prayed for. “That the bill shows on its face that it was brought by stockholders of de fendant against the defendant, founded on an alleged right which might prop erly be asserted by the defendant itself and the bill does not set forth with suffi cient particularity what efforts, if any, the complainants made to secure action they desire of the stockholders of de fendant, or what action they took, if any, toward preventing the things which they complain of on the part of the managing director of the defend ant.” HE REFUSED TO RETRACT. Preacher Was Given a Drubbing, but Reiterates Ilia Statements. Columbia, S. C., Nov. 10.—Rev. A. J. Hensley, pastor of the Hickory Grove Baptist church, created a big sensation by making charges of immorality against several business men in town, indicating a certain block of buildings on Main street, in which six merchants were con ducting business. He declared that it was a disreputable section of the city and no fit place for decent people to visit. Dr. A. F. Scroggins, a druggist, met Hensley on the street and asked if he was included. The preacher said he was and refused to retract anything. Scroggins proposed, as both were of a size, that they fight it out. The preacher agreed and they fell to, while several looked on. The preacher’s wind soon failed and he was knocked down. Scrog gins pounded him till he cried: “Oh Lord, take him off; don’t let him kill me.” The people interfered, but Hensley de clares he retracts nothing. R. G. DUN DIES IN NEW YORK Head of the Well Known Commercial Agency Succumbs. New York, Nov. 10.—R. G. Dun, head of the mercantile agency of R. G. Dun & Co., died in this city this morn ing of chirrosis of the liver. Mr. Dun was was born in Chillicothe, 0., in 1826. He had been suffering since the early part of last summer. He be gan his business career at the age of 16 in a country store. Early in life he came to New York, where he secured employment in the mercantile agency, then conducted by Tappan & Douglass. In 1865, six years after he first entered the employ of the firm, he became a partner of Mr. Douglass under the firm name of Douglass & Co. In 1889 Mr. Dun purchased the interest in the busi ness held by his partner and was senior partner in the firm of R. G. Dun & Co. up to the time of his death. MOWBRAY GETS A VERDICT. He Is Awarded $5,000 Against How ard Gould. New York, Nov. 10.—The jury in the suit brought by Frank Mowbray, a valet, against Howard Gould, a son of the late Jay Gould, for $25,000 damages for breach of contract, brought in a ver dict today awarding $5,000 to the plaintiff. Mowbray alleged that Gould engaged him as a valet for life at SBO per month after he lost the sight of one eye and sustained other injuries as a result of the settling of a damp sky rocket on Gould’s yacht July 4, 1898, and that he was discharged immediately after the statute of limitations barred a suit for damages on account of the injuries he had received. fergusonatdeath’s door Critcally 11l From a Bullet Wound Inflicted 20 Years Ago. Lexington, Nov. 10.—Captain James E. Ferguson, noted race horse starter, is at death’s door in a hospital here.

Simpson, late principal of the school, who was discharged because of charges of drunkenness against him, has served mandamus proceedings against the school board. The board is ordered by the court to either reinstate him, or show cause why it should not. The Simpson case has been the one topic in Phenix City for several months. One man is running for aiderman in the town whose leading plank in his plat form is that he went to the schoolhouse one morning for the purpose of ejecting the professor from it. Dying Brom Neglect.

LARGE FORCE NECESSARY It Will Require a Well Equipped Army to Put Down tho Rebellion With the Assistance of a Large Naval Force. Sentiment of the Native. Washington, Nov. 10.—Major Gen eral MacArthur, commander-in-chief of the United States forces in the Philip pines and military governor of the islands, has submitted his report to the war department. A considerable por tion of the report relates to events which took place previous to the date when he assumed command, and he publishes some of the correspondence and procla mations of the Filipinos obtained before that time. He refers to the change in Aguiualdo’s plans in abandoning his army organiza tion and starting a guerrilla warfare. The conditions of the country have af forded advantages for such a policy, he says, as they have enabled the insurg ents to appear and disappear at their convenience. At one time they are soldiers and im mediately afterward within the Ameri can lines in the attitude of peaceable na tives. A widely scattered formation of Filipinos quickly followed the guerilla warfare, which led to a corresponding dissemination of the American troops, there being 53 military stations in the archipelago Nov. 1, 1899, and 413 sta tions Sept. 1, 1899. This resulted in a large number of minor affairs, many of which did not assume the dignity of a regular combat, though the casualties between the dates stated were 268. Americans killed, 750 wounded and 55 captured, the Filipinos losing during the same time 3,227 killed 694 wounded and 2,864 captured. General MacArthur says the extensive distribution of troops has strained the soldiers of the army to the full limit of endurance. He says the apparent desultory work has de manded more of discipline and as much of valor as was required during the pe riod of regular operations against con centrated field forces of insurrectionists, General McArthur’s report says that the troops amidst all labors and hard ships are content. Would Accept American Supremacy. The Filipinos, the report says, left to themselves would gladly accept the American supremacy. The Americans are making as many friendly overtures as is compatible with the conditions. The Filipinos have been maddened dur ing the past five years by rhetorical so phistry and stimulants applied to na tional pride until the powers of public contentment have been nearly sus pended. As a substitute for all other considerations the people seem to be actuated by the idea that in all doubtful matters of politics or war men are never nearer right than when going with their own kith and kin regardless of conse quences. This condition, he says, has raised difficulties and other obstructions in pacification. The effort to institute mu nicipal government in American auspices carried the idea of exclusive fidelity to the United States, but this met with difficulties where Filipinos were placed entirely in control and secret municipal governments were organized in various towns under insurgent auspices to pro ceed simultaneovsly with the American governments and often through the same personnel. Presidents and town officials acted openly in behalf of Amer icans and secretly in behalf of the in surgents and paradoxical as it may seem with considerable apparent solicitude for the interest of both. The report says success of the guerrilla system de pends upon complete unity of action among the native population. That there is such unity is frankly acknowl edged, but how it is brought about Gen eral MacArthur says he is unable to as certain. Intimidation accounts for the condition to some extent, but fear would not be successful as the only motive. A Remote Possibility. General MacArthur quotes captured insurgents to show that their leaders in timidate the people. They say that the education of the Filipinos but indicates that this will take a great deal of time and patience and an adequate force. In closing his report, General Mc- Arthur, after speaking of the establish ment of a republican form of govern ment in the islands, said: ‘ ‘ln the light of existing conditions it is difficult to realize that there is any possibility of such a future for the islands, especially so at the present and for many years to come, the necessity of a large American military and naval force is too apparent to admit of discus sion. On the other hand, however, there Eire many encouraging conditions to sustain such a conclusion. For ex ample, in the Philippines no organized efforts are being made to effect any par ticular scheme; the general mission k is to kill and destroy. “As a future thought in the same di rection, it may be suggested that • the Aryan races are making their way back into the old continent, which as a con sequence Is likely within a generation more to become the healer of gigantic politic activities. Up to this the prac tical effect of republican institutions has not been considered in this connec tion. But the rapid extension of re publican civilization these associations, which not only made possible but prob able, of necessity must exert an active and potent influence upon the affairs of Asia, which, under the inspiration of American ideas as transmitted through Filipinos, may yet exhibit the great po litical wonders. It shows not a broad Conception perhaps, but it is attracting •he attention of those hoping for better things in the east.” , Accompanying General MacArthur s report are the reports of the various staff officers under his command.

C., Nov. 10.—Constabls Thomas Dennis attempted to arrest a ne gro named Carter, wanted for the murdei of a convict guard, and after a hard fight succeed in getting the handcuffs on him. While coming to jail the prisonel wrenched one hand free, and with the handcuffs battered the constable ovei the head. Dennis drew his pistol and fired, the bullet passing through the ne gro’s thigh. Then they closed. The ne gro was large and powerful, and with the steel handcuffs beat the officer over the head, cutting him in many places. Dennis fired several shots, but without effect, the negro holding him too closely. Finally the negro, wresting the pistol from the officer, broke away and fled. Nearly fainting, Dennis went for a horse and bloodhounds. He returned with the party, the dogs took the track and ran down the negro in a settlement 2 miles distant. The man had a rifle and fired on the posse. He was shot in the with a Winchester and then plastered with dackshot, when he sur rendered.
