MANILA , Nov. 20. The following
dispatches have been received hero
Irom correspondents of the Associated
Press , accompanying the American ad
vance northward :
GERONA , Nov. 18. General Mac-
Arthur entered Gerona as already ca
bled , this afternoon. The Insurgents
had fled last Monday , after burning
the depot. Nothing else was destroyed
by them. Gerona Is the first town
along the Manila Dagupan railway
line , where the natives did not run at
the approach of the Americans. The
padres offered quarters In the church
and convent. The town has one good
house. Gerona Is the seat of heavy
English sugar interests.
The trip hero was a hard ono and
occupied six hours In covering seven
miles nnd a half. Most of the tlmo
was sepnt in fording a quarter of a
mile flood , running out of the Rio Tar-
lac. We have no wagons , and pack
mules and native bearers carry all our
The natives hero say that Bayom
hona was occupied last Sunday by
mounted troops , probably General
Young's brigade of General Lawton's
division. The people here are of a
better class than wo have usually
found , and they welcomed the Amer
icans , as they ovidentlj realize that
their agricultural interests will revive.
General MacArthur said this after
noon : "We seem to be entering a dif
ferent political atmosphere. The people
ple hero seem to be less attached to
Agulnaldo's cause than those in many
towns wo have entered on the railroad
line. "
The command will move northward
nt daybreak tomorrow , toward Bayom
bong. Gerona wll be garrisoned with
two companies of the Thirty-sixth.
Immediately on entering Gerona Sla-
veii's scouts moved up the track to
ward Panlque. On the way they en
countered an entrenched party of in
surgents , whom they drove back , then
entering the town and capturing four
locomotives and thirteen cars , as al
ready cabled. They learned that 500
insurgents had left the town in the
course of the afternoon.
"PANIQUE , Nov. 20. General Mac-
Arthur's troops arrived from Gerona
in the course of the morning. The
lallroad beyond this point had been
destroyed. The captured railway stock
is being repaired to handle supplies.
The expedition will go north toward
Bayombong , probably today. The sig
nal corps is constructing lines with
great rapidity. A native courier from
Bayombong reports that the American
troops left the town soon after they
entered , and that many natives re
main , though no Insurgents.
General MacArthur discovered here
Major Joneson , formerly chief sur
geon on the staff of the Filipino com
mander , General Mascardo. Ho re
sides at Bacolor , and is about to re
turn there to resume his practice.
Major Joneson says that nil respecta
ble Filipinos are disgusted with the
behavior of the Insurgents and are
very glad that the Americans have the
upper hand.
A continuous procession of refugees
Is entering Panlque from the north ,
indicating the proximity of other
"American troops , probably off the rail
road lino. These refugees say that the
insurgents have not known which way
to turn , with the Americans occupying
BO many places on the north.

Word reaches hero late this evening
of a terrible accident on the Omaha

In the work train were a number of
flat cars , upon which were a hundred
or more workmen , principally Ital
ians. The men on the hand car
jumped off , leaving the car on the
track. When the rapidly backing

cars from the track , killing five of

DURBAN , Natal , Nov. 20. The
Times of Natal publishes the follow
ing :
"Tho enemy made a detcrmlnrd at
tack on Thursday , November 9. Ap
parently all the Boer foices participat
ed. Their artillery opened at 4 a. M. ,
pouring In shells thick and fast upon
the British positions , although with no
great effect. They adopted the untii-
ual tactics of advancing under cover
of their to positions on the ridges nnd
vopjcs adjacent to those occupied by
ho British troops early in the invest
"Continuing tholr advance the Boers
rcpt up , using every available bit of
over. Our Infantry opened with a
teady , warm and .accurate fire , which
) eat back the enemy , notwithstanding
ho display of tenacity of purpose equal
o their desperate stands on previous
occasions. The Boor attack was most
elaborate on all sides of the town.
"Tho main attack was made , how-
ver , between the Free State and Now-
astle railway lines by n column chief-
y of Johannesburg volunteers. A bri
gade of King's Royal Rifles corps inado
a splendid defense. The Boors were
opulsed , but soon rallied and retutn-
cd to the fight. Again the British fire ,
vhich was very hot , forced them to ro-
; lre. They had made a deep trench la
rent of the British lines and while
withdrawing from tholr horses they
eft this unguarded , whereupon the
Clng's Rifles , advancing nt double-
quick , occupied the trench.
"This smart movement was not seen
by the enemy , who soon returned
with their horses. Carefully reserving
heir flro the King's Rifles allowed tlio
Boors to advance almost to the edge
of the trench nnd then poured volley
after volley into the astounded Boer ? ,
vho turned and fled from an awful hail
of bullets , bolting across the open ,
vhere the artillery of the British pour
ed In a terrible and effective shell fire.
The enemy lost heavily , falling about
11 heaps.
"Meanwhile another section of the
3oers had brought a mortar into ac
tion , firing heavy shells. Our guns ,
concentrating upon it , soon silenced
his weapon , the enemy's artillery men
fleecing headlong. The Boers then art-
'anced in force with a view of repah-
ng the mortar , but our artillery shelled
and scattered them right and loft. The
fighting was all over at 11 o'clock.

President Ilobart passed the greater
part of yesterday at the bedroom win
dow , at times reading the nswspapers

of the court of criminal correction , to
day , In overruling a motion to squash
the information against a dozen book

Jump In Leather and Hides.
CHICAGO , Nov. 20. The Record to
morrow will say : All kinds of leathei
nnd hides in the United States ant
Canada have taken a sudden jump in
price because of a general scarcity of
the raw and manufactured material ,

making of boots nnd shoes , has risen

Leader is Not Hemmed In ,
American T'orccs Moving on the Chl f-

ture Not Uncuuraglng.
MANILA , Nov. 18. The latest Information
mation as to Agulnaldo's whereabouts
comes from Major Swlgcrt of the Third
Major Swlgcrt reports moving
against the rebel general at Pnzaru-
This disposes of all rumors as to
Agulnaldo being at Dagupan and hemmed -
med in by our forces at Pazarublo 13
outside the line drawn by our troopa.
Now York Pozoi ublo , which place
the Herald's special cable indicate ? ilia
rebel leader now occupies , Is about ton
miles from San Jaclnto , lying a llltln
north of east from that town.
It was at San Jaclnto that the last
hard fighting with the insurgents was
reported , in which Maier John A. Lo
gan was killed while leading a charge.
The war department had hopes that
Agulnaldo had been caught between
the lines of General Wheaton on the
coast of the gulf of Llngaycn , and those
of MacArthur near Tnrlac.
In the meantime Lawton has been
pushing up through the interior , send
ing his cavalry under General Young
far ahead In the direction of Bayon-
borg. Two days ago it was reported
that Young was but a few miles from
the latter point
Major Swlgert is a cavalry officer ,
and , while not absolutely certain , m
army circles nt Washington last night ,
It was believed that he was attached
to General Young's command.
It therefore seems most probable
that ho has swung over westward from
the direction of Bayonborg , and con
sequently is closing In on Pozorubio
from the north. In that event the
chances of surrounding the rebel lead
er are excellent.
General MacArthur , with the Thirty-
sixth infantry , a battalion of the Fif
teenth infantry , a troop of the Fourth
cavalry , several Catlings and a detach
ment of the signal corps , has begun
his northward advance from Tarlac ,
which will be continud to Bayomboug ,
province of Now Ylzcayn.
