Oregon Volunteers and the Twenty
Second Infantry Were the First
Regiments to Go to the Front.
Manila, March 24 Noon. The
enemy is extremely active in the vicinity
of Malahon preparing defenses, evidently
anticipating an attack. They keep well
undercover. A small body of rebels,
however, emerged from the jungle ou the
extreme left and fired on the Kansas
troops in the trenches, fatally wounding
Privates Cohen and Murr.
Tbe Oregon volunteers and the
Twenty-second infantry inarched to the
front today. The Third and Seventeenth
regiments have disembarked from the
Sherman. General H. G. Otis' brigade
ttrtuk their tents this morning, and an
early move is probable,
Sixteen English refugees arrived here
yeeterday from Dagupan, the railroad
teruiinue, on board the Saturnus. They
report that the natives are generally
friendlv, and the officers invariably
. According to Filipino eeeounts 1000
Americans have been killed, the fatalities
being especially heavy at Calocon, where
the United States troops "Rushed like
madmen against a storm of bullets.
6:35 p. u. Two Spanish prisoners
have escaped from Polo.
The lines of the Kansas regiment report
that the Filipinos have concentrated
their fores at Malabon and Polo. They
add that only Agninaldo's body guard is
at Malolns, and that the rebel leaders
apparently intend to stake their iortones
on a fight at Mhlobon, where it was ex
pected an engagement would take place
yesterday. If defeated, it is further
asserted, the rebels intend to disperse to
the swamps and mountains.
Rebels were pulling their bolo men in
front, believing that their charas will
avert the bullets. The boloa of the
Filipinos greatly outnumber the rifles in
their hands. The rebels are further
said to have admitted that they cannot
withstand the American shells and
The escaped Spanish prisoners corrob
orated the stories told of a food shortage
among the rebels, and they added that
the hospitals are short of supplies.
Rebels Propose to Make a Float Stand.
New Ybrk, March 24. A dispatch to
the World from M anilasavs: The rebels
are heavily massed in the trenches
opposite our lines on the north. This
evidently rimes from a belief on the part
of Agninaldo that a blow is to be struck
tery soon at Malolos, their capital.
Prisoners who have been brought In
within the last twenty-four hours say
that t!.e rebels have the last-ditch"
feeling, and will make the most decisive
tnd they have yet taken.
The second line of defense occupied by
the rebel forces is between San Mateo
id Mannalichei. There are rows of
trendies there, and the advance of onr
troops can only be step by step, w ith a
reactance to be expected at every trench.

Chinese Admits Perjury and His "Ac
complices" are Discharged.
Bakke Citt, March 23. Lee Mow,
the Chinaman who was charged jointly
with Frank Shinn and William Small
with the larceny of $1000 worth of
jewelry and nuggets from a stone ware
house in Chinatown, on the night of
December 15, 1898, last evening In Jus
tice James's court, denied the truth of a
confession, which he had signed in turn
ing state s evidence, and the court die
charged Shinn and Small on the ground
that tbe testimony was totally in
sufficient to hold them. Lee Mow will
probably be prosecuted for perjury. He
is an opium fiend and testified that be
did not know what Unconvicting papers
contained, when lie signed it.
General sympathy is expressed for the
relatives of Small .and Shinn, who are
among the oldest and most respected
residents of this county.

He had been on a big spree ever since
the farst discovery, and came to Lewis

Twenty-three Regiments Must Be
Moved, and Every Available
Transport Will be Pressed Into
New York, March 24. A dispatch to
the Tribune from Washington says: Ad
jutant-General CorbiD has undertaken
to get the volunteers out of Cuba by
April 25, and arrangements are now be
ing perfected with that end in view
This is fully two weeks within the limit
of May 10, set by the president before
he left for the South.
The proportions of the undertaking
may be realized when it is remembered
that twenty-three regiments must be
transported by sea to the United States
within a month. All the government
transports now in the Atlantic will be
utilized. These include the Dixie,
which has been secured from tbe navy
department; the Cornal, the Crook, the
Kilpatriek, the Sedgwick and tbe
Thomas, besides such Ward and Plant
line steamers as can be used.
For the past week every effort has
been made to bring home at least ten of
the regiments before April 1, when

TINUE TO DIE
Owners Offer as High as Forty Dollars
a Ton for Hay, But Can Get
Long Creek, March 24. Reports from
tbe surrounding stock country indicate
fearful loss of all kinds of stock. What
makes the situation all the more dread
ful is that the next two weeks are bound
to witness the death of hundreds, and
perhaps thousands more. A well known
stockman from Monument says that In
that section aione, fully 6000 sheep
would perish before the lambing season
was passed. The lambing season, which
begins next month, will find a large per
centage of the ewes in a very poor con
dition. W. C Gibbs, who arrived from Susan-
ville today, says that as high as $40 per
ton had been ofTered for hay, without
success. He says that A. Sloan had lost
three hundred bead of cattle, and was
entirely out of hay. In many instances,
as a last resort, whole grain is being led,
and in one or twocises stockmen hnve
actually commenced to feed flour to the
weaker cittle and sheep. Conservative
estimates place the loss of cattle sj far
in northern Grant county at 1800 hesd,
and it is claimed that many more are
likely to die.
Juhn Elliott says that horses continue
to die, and as an illustration cited the
fact that one day last week he ran on
band near his place on the Middle Fork
of the John Day river, ana wittun
twenty-four hours after first seeing them
twonty-two head had died. While the
loss of stock In Northern Grant county
is great, and in some instances will
bankrupt stockmen, the community
generally will not suffer, as there will
still be thousands of sheep and cattle
Stockmen recall the winter of 180-90
as similar In manv respects to the pres
ent ono. Stockmen had ceased to f-ud
their droves, and in many cases had
ap ni them to the ranges. While they
were still weak a deep snow followed by
cold weather came, and during March
fully fifty P1' rinit ' M" ,l"cl1
county perished. But this year the
hope is generally entertained that tbe
weather will certainly moderate before
such au enormous loss has been sus
THE OLD WAY
Of Treating Dyspepsia and Indigestion
by Dieting a Dangerous and
Ws say tbe old way, but really it is a
very common one at the present time
and many dyspeptics and physicians as
well, consider the first step to take in
attempting to cure indigestion is to diet
either by selecting certain foods and re
jecting others or to greatly diminish the
quantity usually taken, in other words
tbe starvation plan is by many supposed
to be the first essential.
The almost certain failure of the star
vation cure for dysyepsia has been
proven time and again, but still the
moment dyspepsia makes its appearance
a course of dieting is at once advised.
All this is radically wrong. It is fool
ish and unscientific to recommend diet
ing or starvation to a man suffering Irora
dyspepsia, becac.se indigestion itself
starves every organ and every nerve and
every fibre in the body.
What the dyspeptic wants is abun
dant nutrition, which means plenty of
good, wholesome, well cooked food and
something to assist the weak stomach
to digest it. This is exactly the purpose
for which Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are
adapted and this is tbe method by which
they cure the worst cases of dyspepsia,
In other words the patient's eats plenty
of w holesome food and Stuart's Dyt
pepsia Tablets digest it for him. In this
way the system is noutished and the
overworked stomach rested, becuase the
tablets will digest thfc fotd whether the
stomach works or not. One of these
tablets will digest 3,000 grains of meat
Your druggist will tell you that
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is the purest
and safest remedy for stomsch troubles
and every trial makes one mors friend
for this excellent preparation. Sold at
50c ts, for full sized package at all drug

Difficulties of the Campaign In
suing a Hidden Foe.
Los Angeles, March 25. The fol
lowing cablegram, senttoday from Manila
by Brigadier Gen. II . G. Otis to the Los
Angeles Times, touching upon today's
engagement, are self-explanatory:
"Manila, March 20 (Sunday 0. a.
m.:) To the Times, Los Angeles: My
brigade has pierced the enemy's country
after a brilliant and a severe engage
ment. The rebels were steadily pressed
back along the lines. The batt e is still

A Hard Fought Battle.
Manila, March 20. --(Sunday 8:15, a.
m.) Twenty-six dead, and 150 wounded
n the hospital, is the latest statement
of the American losses in the engage
ment with the Filipinos. Today's
fighting furnished a specimen of the
difficulties with which the Americans
have to contend. . The Filipinos never,
except at Malabon, permitted their
opponents to get within several
hundred jardi of them. They
would fire volleys from their cover, and
then scuttle back to another cover, re
peating thete tactics for miles. Many of
the trenches had gullies and connecting
paths, through the cane and bruil,
enabled them to retreat, unseen. The
Americans, fighting a bidden foe, have
suffered a greater loss in proportion than
did the enemy. The loss of the Filipinos
had formerly been estimated from the
number of bodies found in the swamp
and through the brush. A larger per
centage of the enemy's wounded died
than of the Americans, many of them
perishing from neglect, the Americans
naturally attending to their own men
The wounded, af:er treatment in the
field hospitals, were brought to the
hospital by train. Several trips were
made from Caloocan to the city. The
first load to start for the city was com
posed largely of bnndaged soldiers who
shouttd "Give them hell, boys."
