The Tribune from Washington says:
In the Mail from Manila, which has
just arrived at the war department,
there were at least two communica
tions expressing conviction that Aguin
aldo is hiding in that city. One of these
letters is from a United States secret
service officer, who has found conclu
sive evidence that the Tagal leader has
beeu in Manila since the rebel armies in
Luzon were dispersed and who was sat
isfied as lie had not escaped by water,
he was probably still concealed in tho
native part of the town.
The other letter was from an army of
ficer attached to headquarters, who
voiced the opinion of all high military
authorities that Aguinaldo was cer
tainly not in any of the outlying dis
tricts of the island for American troops
had too thoroughly overrun the country
for the rebel chieftain to escape detec
tion and esjK-eially in Panay province
there were enough enemies of the lesul
er to have betrayed him if he was there.
Military officers recently returned
from the Philippines said that Aguin
aldo wouid naturally seek refuge in the
Tagul quarters in Manila, where he
Would find greater safety than in the
outlying provinces, especially those
which the American troops have thor

many natives who sympathize with
American rule.

that Aguinaldo has not leen out of Ma

Manila,
April 10.—Reports of en­
counters between the American troops
aud the insurgents continue to arrive
from many points. On Friday Captain
Sturgis, while reconuoiteriug, struck an
insurgent outpost on the Nevnliches
road, five miles distant from Manila,
killing two and capturing ten. All
were in full uniform. Unfortunately
Captain Sturgis' force was not large
enough to pursue the main body.
A detachment of the Forty-second
infantry, while scouting in Ldiguna
province, was pursued by the insur
gents and obliged to take refuge iu a
church at Paolo, where the Americans
repelled the rebels until reinforcements
arrived.
Lieutenant Gonion, with a company
of the Sixteenth infantry, while scout
ing near Aparri. Cagayan province, en
gaged 230 insurgents. Lieuteuaut Gor
don was wounded.
A sergeant and corporal of Company
"I," Sixteenth infantry, were killed in
a severe fight in Capiz province, Island
of Panay.
The insurgents made a night attack
upon Calbayon. Island of Samnr. They
killed the sentry, swavmed into the
town aud searched tlie house of Major
Gilmore
of the Forty-third infantry,
who was pbsent. They killed his cook.
Ultimately the Americans drove them
out
of
town, killing
4
and capturing 12.
Ask for Reinforcements.
General Young,commanding iu North
Luson, has made several requests for
reinforcements, representing that his
force is inadequate, that the men are
exhausted by the necessity of constant
vigilance, that he is unable to garris n
the towns in his jurisdiction, that the
insurgents are returning to the district
nnd killing the amigos, and that it is
necessary for him to inflict punishment
in several sections before the rainy sea
son begins.
General James Bell, who is command
ing in Southern Luzon, has made simi
lar represent itions. He says his forces
are inadequate and that ho merely
holds a few towns, without controlling
the territory.
