MANAGUA, Nicaragua, March 17.—
The city of Managua is In a frenzy of

received of three great victories scored
by the government forces today over
their opponents, the Leonlst rebels.
The city of Metapa was taken today
by storm after two days' hard fighting.
The capture was attended with ter
rible slaughter, news from the scene
placing the number of killed as high
as 1,000 men. Metapa, situated in
the midst of high mountains not very
far from the .frontier of Honduras.was
considered the stronghold of the rebels
and was relied upon by the Insurgents
to fall back upon as a last report. The
rugged character of the country in
which the town Is located and its al
most inaccessible approaches made the
assault particularly hazardous and un
certain. The fall of the rebel strong
hold is greeted here as a great triumph
for the government cause. The town
of Mora also succumbed today to Ze
laya's arms with heavy rebel losses.
The troops supplied by the president
of Honduras to assist President Ze
laya are doing active service, and are
in full career down the west coast of
the Occidental department. They have
already occupied Viego City, north of
Leon, and are proceeding southward.
They are expected to take Chinadega
tomorrow, which is, next to Leon, the
largest rebel city in the republic. The
old and the new towns together have
a population of about 15,000 inhabi
