THE REPRESENTATIVE. WEDNESDAY. JUNE 22, 1898. AUGUSTI SHUT IN Wires Madrid That He Has Retired Within the Walls at Manilla and Can Send No Further Communications. FIGHTING IS KEPT UP Insurgents Continue to Gain Ground and the Spaniards Are Evidently Making Prep arations to Surrender. MADRID, June 21. —Augusti wires Madrid that he has retired within the walls of Manilla and will be unable to communicate further with the govern ment. HONG KONG, June 21. —According to advices from Manilla dated June 17 it was reported there then that Gen. Nonel, coming southward with 3,000 mixed troops from Balacan, 30 miles north of Ma nilla, found the railway liile blockaded and was taken by ambush by the insurgents. Fierce fighting en sued and was carried on for three days, during which Gen. Nonel was killed. The native troops joined the insurgents, and the Spaniards who were left, about 500, surrendered. A battalion at Pampagna of native militia, sup posed to be particularly loyal, began shooting its of ficers and killed five, when the insurgents attacked Marabon. The Spanish succeeded in disarming and imprivsoning a portion of them, but they escaped when the insurgents captured Marabon. At Seapote also a whole regiment revolted at a critical moment. The authorities still use mixed forces, with the result that insurgent riflemen are frequently found to have passed the sentries and to be creeping along under cover &nd firing upon the Spaniards from behind. The insurgents fire sparingly in their battles, but draw abundant Spanish vofleys especially at night. The Spaniards incessantly squander tons of ammunition into the shadows of the thicket, appar ently in the hope of quickly exhausting their stock and being in a position to surrender honorably after a hopeless fight. v In the meantime the Spanish commanders have been ordered to burn the villages outside the town so as to deprive the enemy of shelter and hundreds of peaceful natives are homeless. There was a great feast at Cavite on June 12 when a declaration of independence was formally or dered by Aguinaldo. He had invited the American officers to be present but none accepted. Aguinaldo is reported to have advocated autonomy under Amer ican protection, similar to the British protectorates. The insurgents, it is believed, out of deference to Admiral Dewey have resolved not to bombard. For several days there have been tremendous rain storms. CARLOS EXPLAINS HIS PLANS (By Cable to The Tribune.) MADRID, June 21.—Imparcial prints an interview its correspondent has had with Don Carlos. As It is understood that the pretender revised the interview before it was published, his statements may be re garded as in the nature of a manifesto. Don Carlos said: “1 won't conceal from you that when I left Naples last April I was resolved to protest by means of force and arms—that is, by ordering my partisans to rise against the people who were prostituting our coun try by a series of unimaginable humilia tions, but when I learned that war against the United States was imminent and might be declared at any moment, I changed my resolution and firmly decided to observe the most absolute impassivity. ‘‘Unswerved from this decision I do not desire to create the least difficulty for my country, since it is most important that all her children should sacrifice themselves for her. My enforced inaction puts me to despair, but I carry it to the extreme of depriving myself even of expressing my opinion as to current events. “The governing statesmen, who have committed the crime of not preparing the nation for war every one saw to be un avoidable for the last two years, will never be able to accuse me of having withdrawn a single Spanish will from the national forces in the fight with the United States. "They brought on the war by yielding continually to American demands and they 'SIMPLE AND EFFECTIVE. The Wire to Hans Clothes on That Caused Broker to Rent the Flat. “Never mind a place to dry your clotdes,” said Broker, as he and his wife were looking at a flat. “I can fix all that. You’ll have them four stories from the ground, wh'ere there is air and sunshine, and where burglars have no chance to strip the clothes line. We’ll take this flat.’’ “Where’s your clothes line?’’ Inquired Mrs. Broker, as soon as they had moved in. "See? What did I tell you? There it is. I always told you I had plenty of in genuity. An endless wire, my dear. Works on pulleys. One inside the window and one on that telegraph pole in the alley. Pin the clothes on the wire, draw the line as it is filled, just like all other great inventions. Leave the things out over night when ever you want to.” Mrs. Broker had her first washing done. The wire worked to a charm; she was de lighted, and Broker talked of taking out a patent. It happened to be particularly convenient to leave the washing out that night, and it was good to know that thieves could not molest it. Just as it came dark there was a great shouting and rushing to and fro in the neighbordood. The fire engines came, with a noisy rush, policemen hurried through the flats, and the Janitor yelled like a crazy man. Broker ran to the rear window, and Mrs. Broker was a good second in the will have to take ihe responsibilities of their mistake. This resolution of mine will last so long as the present condition of affuirs endures, but when the final set tlement comes I shall make up for my present silence. I shall take my revenge, not by words alone, and I will do so as soon as my conscience, as a Spaniard, per mits me.” Don Carlos, questioned as to the policy he would adopt in ease he should mount the throne, said he could not enter upon that subject now, beyond admitting the necessity for a large increase in the navy, but he declared that he had thought out and completed plans regarding the military problem and the question of Spain’s for eign policy. "They are my favorite subjects of medi tation,” he observed, “and 1 have certain mature ideas of my own regarding them. I have even found some preliminaries re specting treaties which 1 hope some day will yield excellent fruits. This, in my judgment, is the capital point, because the proud isolation of Great Britain has heed and is deadly to Spain. I must pass the same Judgment on the policy of going about begging for protection and intervention. "The result of such a policy can only be to reduce to the condition of Greece or Servia the Spanish nation, which was once the mistress: of the world.” Don Carlos spoke eloquently of the ne essity for prosecuting the war to the ut most. * > !■ race. There was not a stitch on the line.
