their plucky fight has gone out to II

W iW-all the houors of war. it wa
his for which they had fought, a
they had long given up the hope
oeing rescued or relieved.
Baler is a little town on the eas
.oast of Luzou. There is the leas
bit of a bay there. The Baler Ilive
lows int) the bay. Just before i
reaches the tide water it makes
turn around a hill, and this hig!
ground shuts the town out of sigh
from the bay and sea. It wts arcun
this bend that I.ientenant Gilmor,
and his boat crew with rapid-fire gun
from the Yorktown were captured b;
the insurgents. At that time it wa
made known to the world that a Span
ish garrison had been left by the con
luerett nation and apparently ha
been forgotten by its Government.
The history of the siege is as fu!
A garrison of ifty-ono onieers au
nen wit in Baler when the insur
rection broke out against the Spanish
But the soldiers were able to hol,
their own and live in the barraoks fo
some time. As the insutrgents pro
.rressed and grew in strength a stron
force was sent before Bater and an at
tempt wale to capture the Spaiardl
The Spaniards were under the com
mand of Captain Don Enrique de la
Morenas y Fossi, with two Secon
Lieutenauts, i)on Juan Alonzo
Zyas and Don Saturnino 1Iarti
Cerezo and Medico Don Rogelis Vigi
de Quinones. On the Captain's orde
ll ammunition and supplies wer
taken into the church, and on Jun
:7, 1898, the little garrison too
refuge in. that strong edifice. Th
stone floors were pulled up and th
material so obtained was used i
barricading the windows and door
The belry was fortified and used as
place fromi which to carry on sharf
shooting while the soldier was pr<
teeted fronm the insurgent lire by a
extemporized stone wall with por
holes. The insurgents suffere
severely from this method of warfat
an,d attempted on many occasions t
dislodge the Spaniards. The fire
attempt was in August.
The siege had been thoroaghly lai

Zaptain Fossi made a tour of inspet
tion, and in doing so passed the ketti
of boiling soup. He hurried on hi
rounds and saw that his stronghlto
was fast giving way uder the blow
of his enemies. When he agai
entered the court two soldiers war
with him. They were directed

tc. the balcony leading to the windo'
over the great door. The stones tha
were piled before the window as
barricade were torn down and the sas1
was thrown open. The besiegers sup
posed that a' parley was wanted an<
ceased their battering, stepping bad
to se-e what whs going on. The kettl
was poised on the window sill an<
then its steaming contents were spille<
upon the besiegers. There was a cr
of pain as the scalding liquid fell upoi
the upturned. faces and bare shoul
ders below. Those th i were n
touched ran away, and their less for
tunate fellows writhed and .staggered
toward their trenches. - Volley aftea

when darkness fell they had retreatet
to the farthest trench, defeated in theia
attempt to force the strougchold of t
The suffering was, terrible. Pro
visions ran low. From the start th<
garrison was put on short rations,
which were reduced as time went on
until the soldier&aid~ oflicers were
compelled to live on1 rats and ike,
of which there seemed t-. be plenty in
the church, and on an occasional dog
which would come within range of the
gyns and close enough to the walls tt
be retrieved. This may seem dis
gusting, but it was life or death to the
besieged. They tell of a day when
snake made themi a meal. And as
they stood about their officers at the
train last night their sanken cheeks
and sallow skins attested to the suffer
ing they had endiu-ed.
But all did not endure. Worse than
that-all would not endure, and it
must be recorded that four men de
serted when they saw the helplessness
of the situation. These are their
names as given in the oflieial reoort,
together with the dates on which they
