Tjo Purchase a Sraphophone
I W« have them from $5.00 to $150.00.
There is more real enjoyment in a
Graphophone than any instrument in
the world. You can have at your bid
ding an unseen host of musicians ready
to delight with exqusite melody.
AF THE COUNTRY HOME
Graphophones are particularly adapted
to out-of-door use, and are, therefore,
specially available for lawn parties and
all out door gatherings at the summer
home. When the atmosphere is stifling
in doors and the energy is lacking with
which to entertain family and friends,
the Graphophone stands ready and
willing to delight and cheer with its
melody, story and song. It will be the
jollieet member of; the jolliest party,
sing rag-time coon songs m inimitable
fashion, tell the most clever and side
splitting hay-seed stories, or entertain
with the latest march or familiar oper
atic selection. A big stock of Grapho
phones and Graphophone records kept
in stock to select from.

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

STILWELL FACTION’S REPLY.
Demurrer Filed to the Complaint of
.John W. Gates and Others.
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.

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. An
operation performed several doys ago to
remove a bullet from near the spine,
which had been in his back 20 years,
proved only temporarily successful.
For the past three days he has grown
weaker. Today he is very low, the phy

perhaps hours only.
Simpson Case Reopened.
Phenix, City, Ala., Nov. 10.—Profes
sor H. S. 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.
Burlington, N. C., Nov. 10.—Henry
Jordan, an operative in one of the cot
ton mills, was found, a few days ago,
dying from neglect. His body was an

his back and both hips. The sores had
caused gangrene to set in, and thou
sands of maggots were working under
the skin.

CONDITIONS IN THE
PHILIPPINE ISLANDS
General McArthur’s Report
to War Department.
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.

FOUGHT FOR HIS LIBERTY.
An Officer’s Desperate Encounter With
a Negro Murderer.
Florence, S. 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. The Winchester ball is still
in his neck, but he spems to be doing
well.

Singular Indorsement.
