Filipino Set Fir to the lMnre mud lie treat to the Northnrl Fur ther I'enee MritotlMtlona Have Failed. London, May 4. Advices hate been received here from Manila that Gen. Whcaton captured San Tomas ufter a severe tight with the insurgents. The insurgents were routed. The town was nearly destroyed by lire. Latvton's brigade is advancing toward Mansin, where the insurgents are expected to make another stand. Hard Flithtliitf Heitorted. Calumpit, May 4 (by Carrier Pigeon to Manila). A hard battle is being fought about tite miles to the north. The American forces, under Gen. Halo, ure now driting the enemy toward San Fernando. The insurgents are offering strong resistance. Tho forces under Gen. Wheatou ure engaged with n large force of rebels at the bridge over San Tomas river, and the insurgents are lighting with desperation. The natives hate set fire to the buildings in San 'Ionian, nnd the town is likely to be completely destroyed before the enemy evacuates. Gen. MncArthur's division began the advance at eight o'clock this morning. Tho Kansas and Montana volunteers followed along the railway. Tho South Dakota, lown and Nebraska toluntoers nnd the Utah battery unit ed forward on the right of the line. The Insurgents cpened fire upon the advancing troops before they had got within four miles of San Tomas, nnd sharpshooters kept throwing bullets nt our men with an noying persistency.

Jose Denial, hate abandoned the pretense under which they came to Gen. Otis that they represented Gen. Antonio Luna, and Wednesday they announced that they came as representatives of Aguinaldo himself. The two emissaries used all their wiles to secure a reply from (Jen. Otis to the letter from Senor Mabinl, Agulnaldo's prime minister and minister of foreign affairs in the dictator's cabinet, which they pre sented to Gen. Otis on Tuesday; but Gen. Otis refused to make any reply, on the ground that to do so would be equivalent to a recognition of the so cnlled government of the Filipinos. Will Continue to Flaht. Maj. Arguelles said that Aguinaldo knew ho would be overpowered in time, but that he would be able to continue the fight for months, nnd that he would do so unless he were given what Maj. Arguelles termed peace with dignity. The Filipinos now ask for a truce of three months to enable Aguinaldo to summon the congress nnd consult with the insurgent leaders on others of the islands. The envoys admitted the con tention of Gen. Otis that Aguinaldo has little control oter affairs outside of the island of Luzon. The question of the release of Span ish prisoners in the hands of tho Fil ipinos mentioned, Maj. Manuel Ar guelles, the chief member of the depu tation, said that he considered them as being in the same category with the Americans, the United States being the successor of Spain in dominion over the island and acquiring by treaty nil Span ish rights nnd obligations. After the close of the conference with Gen. Otis, tho Filipino envoys had a consultation ttith the United States Philippine commissioners. A Uood FfTeet. Mr. Sehuruian, the president of the United States Philippine commission, expressed the opinion that the Inter views accorded by (ion. Otis to the Fil ipino representatives will have a good moral effect, ns tending to continco Agulnaldo's representatives that the American authorities mean to give the Filipinos a good government, and not one of the Spanish sort. Certainly it has had a civilizing In fluence in inducing them to observe the amenities of war nnd consent to the Americans furnishing food for Amer ican prisoners. The exodus of natives from the insurgent lines continues. Hy filling in the roads where it was required, putting canoes on the river and plotting fields south of Malolon, the nrmy is In a fine position for the expected decisive blot.
