After the fight ho saw General Shat ter and obtained permission to follow the ammunition wagons and unload provisions sufficient for all the men on the fighting line , early fn the evening of July 1 , on the flank of San Juan hl'fl. In reply to a direct question If the transportation under hla charge was sufficient and If the work of transportation was satisfactorily accom plished. Captain Plummer explained that tbo transportation was limited , but be did not bellovo that more wagons could have been used , because ot the limited facilities for loading the wagons In Slboney and tbo I narrowness of , the roads over which the sup plies had to bo drawn. From motives of prudence General Shatter ordered that wagons shoufd not go too close to the trenches. "Was there any serious distress among the men In the trenches on account of their Inability to get supplies ? " , "I heard of none. On the night of J'lly j 1 I met some men of my regiment and ashoJ I them If they needed anything. They toM 'me ' that they had eaten all they want j I.

He had heard tompTalnts of the food , but considered them duo to the Inex perience of the men and their lack of experi ence to use properly the food Issued to them. It was only by accident , when a cooker or a waiter was a member of the company , that the food was properly cooked at Chick- amauga. Dr. Hnlibard Waa HonnB. "How about the medical treatment ?

MANY NATIVES F/WOR / A PROTECTORATE Gencrnllr nccard tbc foiled Stntci n * n Friendly Power nnd Anxious to ShiMT Good Spirit. WASHINGTON' , Nov. 19. The Navy dc partmcnt baa made publlo two lutcrcstlnf reports , one from Captain Coghlan of thi nnlclgh and the other from Captain Wilde : of the Boston , 'both ' attached to Dewey' : squadron. These reports wcro rend at thi cabinet meeting yesterday with Interest a throwing a good deal ot light on the condl tlons In the Philippines. The two officer were dispatched by Admiral Dewey to mak an Inspection of the Islands and the rcsul Is set out In their reports. Captain Coghlan of the Raleigh says tha ho started on September 19 to the north west coast of Luzon for the protection o American commerce. Some points of hi report follow : "I stopped at the Corregldor Island at the entrance to Manila bay and dollvcre your orders not to fly the Insurgent flag This was cheerfully agreed to. I then pro ccedcd to San Fernando do La Union , nort of Llngycn gulf. I found the Insurgent fla flying and a chief with flvc companies of. In surgents guarding the place. They said the had about 150 Spanish prisoners. Native * Friendly. The chief and others were Invited off , bu the chief made an excuse and would no come. Six other officers , Including the cap tain of tbft port , came off , first stlpulatln , that' Lieutenant Kodman should rcmati ashore while they were on lioard. Our boat transported them. They were received wit ] due respect , entertained In the cabin shown over the > -essel and treated wltl o\iry courtesy. "At Aparrl wo wcro received very gra clously by the Insurgent chief In charge , whi gave us every Information and arranged ti visit the ship Inter on , but he failed to conn off , as did iho others. This may be ac counted for In part by the heavy , uorthorl ; swell which settled on the coast. "At Sue ? , near the head of Llngyen gull we found an Insurgent lieutenant and abou thirty men In charge. Many people catni off that evening and In the night. Wbei : visited the shore at 8 a. m. the next da ; wo wcro refused a landing , on a plea tha they had no orders to that effect. Afte parleying for more than an hour n rein lorccmcnt of ono officer and forty men hav , ng come In , we were permitted tolani and go Into the Cuartcl , where all the of leers wore very polite , but would not at low us to go about the place , on the plei that they had telegraphed to the capita city and were awaiting an answer , whlcl answer never came. None of the officer would come off to the ship , poemlng ver ; suspicious of us. Numbers of natives cam uit wnd seemed perfectly a $ east , regardlni iu as friends. Regarded United State * an n Friend "At all places south of Llngyen gulf w found 'both officers and natives mast cordlr nnd friendly anxious , as they said , that th United States should maintain a protectorat over the Island of Luzon and that trade re latlona should bo re-catabllshed. There arne no Spaniards from Cape Engano to Man Hi At no $ lme north of Manila ihave they ha any flour for nearly three months. I not ! fled the authorities that sUl vessels fiyln the United States flag might come to trad at any time and that they must be treate properly and be respected. "When speaking on this subject to th commandant at Olongato lie said that a vessels trading there must get permlsslo from his government. He was unable 4 say whether this applied to all ports unde Insurgent rule or only to the -arsenal c Olongato. " * ' Captain Coghlan gives a good deal ot In formation as to the character of the town visited by him Sublg , MarlvaJ and Aparr Sual , Dagupan and San Fernando show In In substance , that wihlle the people are pee they are all capable of considerable dc velopment. Captain Wilder of tho. Boston , In his re port , states that bis cruise waa made I company with the transport Manila to' tjj southward. All IloUtcd FlaKS. The native villages all hoisted white flag on his approach.

At Port Royalist on the 26th the Doa ton was boarded by an officer of the Span 1sh navy with the compliments ot the gov arnor ot the province. An officer was sen to return the boarding call and waa clVIII treated. The military force there was aboti 200 Indiana , forty or fifty Spaniards , on piece of artillery and one gunboat of 25 tona. The Inhabitants of the Island num her 50,000. Moors and Malays are In th toulhern part , Cuyos In the nor then There were no Insurrectionists.
