W AMiiNOTov, March 31. A modus

put forward by Germeny, and is the
second one submitted for the settlement
of the entire question.

Chinese Say Aguinaldo Has
Troops With Him Xo
Manila, April 1. The American
lorces commanueu by Mao Arthur are
resting at Malolos today. The men are
in good condition, considering the
fatigues of the campaign. The plans of
the rebels, if they have any, are con
Considerable rebel forces have been
illected along the front of Law ton and
Hall, who are holding the line from the
water, works to La Lonia. There is
shooting nightly along this lice, appar
ently for the purpose cf breaking the
Atnecicans' sleep. Consequently Law
ton has detailed five sharpshooters from
each company to attend to the rebels,
and the Americana are picking off num
bers of them.
It Is reported that 3000 rebels under
Pilar are concentrated at Cainta and
General King this morning sent out a
reconnoitering party of two companies of
the North Dakota regiment, and a brisk
engagement followed, during which
seven Filipinos were killed. On the
American side a lieutenant and two
privates were wounded.
Manila, April 1. The reconnolssance
by the Americans extended as far as
Cilumpit. It is expected the tuovo will
be inado there tomorrow.
Residents of Malolos, who fled in panic
when the Americans took the town, are
returniLg, and are glad the Americans
are in charge, as the city is absolutely
quiet. Scouts can find no trace of Tagale,
but peaceful residents who desiie Aguin
aldo to surrender are maltreated by the.n.
The Chinese reedents say Aguinuldo has
only 1500 troops with him, as the
desertions have been tremendous
Beyond San Fernando, Aguinaldo can
not well go, as the hostile tribes of Tarlac
and Pangasinan will cut him off.
The railroad from Manila stops at San
Fernando, and the Americans will haye
no trouble in pursuing that far, as is
Otis' plan at present. The Chinese say
that four American prisoners, H. Huber,
William Uiuce, A. 8onrichen and E.
Hoi eymann, were tortured and taunted
in public, but I Hen disappeared, iso
trace of them can now be found.
A detachment of Kansas troops has
gone to ISuiacan to releaeo Spanish
prisoners held by rebels.
Heavy Fighting Ended.
Washington, April 1. War depart
ment officials here are very much
gratified at conditions in the Philippines.
It is understood from Otis' dispatches
that there Is little left of Agninaldo's
army, and that bis troops do not want
to again face the American soldiers. It
is believed Otis now has the situation
well in hand, and that theonly opposition

Building Lots in Demand at Centcr
CK.NTERVii.i.it, Wash., April 1. This
was a lively day for Centerviile. Surveyor
Jacob Itlchardson, of Goldenuale, has
been a visitor for three dayp, locating the
lownBite which will cover forty acres
and be entered on before Commissioner
Presby under the "townsite act." The
scramble for lots was as general as it was
Thursday, but there were no collisions,
At one time in the procedure when one
man would enclose a lot with a fence,
and another man would tear it awav, it
looked as if there would be trouble.
Surveyor Richardson's presence cooled
the "hot heads." The surveys have
progressed so far that owners of buildings
mar be able to locate on the lot upon
which the improvements have been made
and get a good title to the land in case
the new entry is sustained by the
United States land deoardnent.

thermore, it is hinted that if too much
trouble and deliberate delay cccurs, pre
liminary to that amount being turned
over to the Cubans, the $3,000,000 may
be withdrawn and no payir.ent of any
sort made by this government on account
of Cuban troops. No proposition for an

Seattle, Marca 31. A Post Intelli

Chief Moses, the well-known Indian,
died at his home on theColville reserva
tion last Saturday.
Spokane, March 31. Moses was really
head chief ot all the Indians on the Col
ville reservation, about 2000, including
his band of the Coluuibias, the Okano
gans, Lakes, Colvilles, Neepelims and
San Poils. He lived near the Nespelim
subagency, about three miles frr.m
Joseph's place, He was quite well off
in land and stock, and for several yeais
had been drawing an annuity of flOCO
fro n the government.
He was seventy-five or eighty years of
age, though that is largely a matter of
guesswork, as none of the older Indians
know their own ages. He came of a
fighting stock. His father was killed in
an Indian war in Montana, and he was
on the warpath in that state, and was
repeatedly wounded In battle. Later, he
was in the Indian battles on the Columbia
river west of Spokane.
Moses remained at peace, though,
during the Nez Purees war. He was
urged by Joseph to join f rees with him,
but refined. Hd afterwards said that he
wavered, but finally decided to remain
at peace with the whites.
Moses was a large man, and when in
health would weigh 210 pounds. He

THE OLD WAY
Of Treating Dyspepsia and Indigestion
by Dieting a Dangerous and
We sny the old way, but really it is a
very common one at the present time
and many dyspeptics and physicians us
well, consider the first step to take in
attempting to cure indigestion is to diet,
either by selecting certain foods and re
acting others or to greatly diminUh the
quantity usually taken, in other words,
the starvation plan is by many supposed
to be the first essential.
The almost certain failure of tho star
vation cure for dysvepeia has been
proven time an I 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 I rom
dyspepsia, lecausi 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, holesome, 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 the method by which
they sure the worst dues of dyspepsia,
in other wordi th) patie.it) eU plenty
of wholesome food and Stuart's Dit
pepsi Tablets digest it for him. In this
way the system is nourished and tho
overworked stomach rested, becnase the
tablets will digest tht food whether the
stomach work" or not. On of these
tablets will di.ett 3,000 gra1n9 of meat
