Campaign Will Xot Stop on Acconot of
Rain Exterminating the Bandits.
Manila, April 15. Tbe Americana
plan to trap Aguinaldo by sending troops
via the sea route to the north of him.
Then he will be between two lines of
Americans, and it may result in his cap
ture. General Otis declares he has crashed
the rebel army and Asuinaldo's so-called
government. He adds that the Ameri
cans are not going to stop on account of
rainy weather, but will make an active
campaign, cutting the rebel forces in two
at Manila and trapping Aguinaldo to the
north. He thinks the chief problem is
now to exterminate the brigands and
bandits who infest the island in immense
bands of great strength and daring.
The condition of Spanish prisoners is
terrible. They are weak, emaciated,
starved, beaten cruelly and ordered
about by bayonets. United effort lias
been made by merchants of all national
aties to have the Spaniards set free
by Aguinaldo. The petition u to be de
livered at once. However, Otis thinks

There was only desultory shooting
from the retreating enemy until the ad

insurgent military government in the
district of Lagnna de Bay. Here the
road is flanked by steep hills .on each

Squads of five sharpshooters each were
sent up the steep hill and through the

squad of the North . Dakota regiment
suddenly came to the insurgent trench,

FROM DYSPEPSIA AND STOMACH
Instantly Relieved and Permanently
Cured by Stuart's Dyspepsia
A Kew IHacovery, But
Not a Patent
Dr. Redwell relates an interesting ac
count of what be considers a remarkable
cure of acute stomach trouble and
chronic dyspepsia by the use of new
discovery, Stuart's Dyspepsia Tau.'
He says: "The palUnt was a n.
who had suffered to my knowledge, for
years with dyspepsia. FIverything he
ate seemed to sour and create gases In
the stomach J he had pains like rheuma
tism in tlie btti'k, shoulder blades and
limbs, fullness and distress afier eating,
poor appetite and loss of flesh J the Jieart
became sfTected, causing palpitation and
sleeplessness at night.
"I gave him powerful nerve tonics
and blood remedies, but to no purpose.
As an experiment I finally bought a
fifty cent package of Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets at a drug store and gave them to
him. Almost immediately relief was
given and after he had used four boxes
he was to all appearance, fully cured-
"There was no more acidity or sour
watery rising, no bloating after meals,
the appetite was vigorous and he has
gained between 10 and 12 pound In
weight of solid, healthy flesh.
"Although Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
are advertised and sold In drug stores,
yet I roiuider them a most valuable ad
dition to anv physician's line of rem
edies, as they are perfectly harmless
and can he given to children or Invalids
or In any condition of the stomach with
perfect safely, boing harmless and con
talnlng nothing hut fruit and vegetable
essences, pare pepsin and Golden Sea1.
"Without any question they are the
safest, most effective care for Indiges
tion, biliousness, constipation and all
derangements of the stomach, however
slight or severe."
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are made
by the F. A. Stuart Co., of Marshall,
Mich., and are sold by druggists every
where at fifty cents per package.

Lawton Takes Calamba.
Manila, April 15, 10 p. in. News is

Was Once tbe Metropolis ol Okanogan
Coui.ek City, Wash., April 15. The
driver of the Coulee City & Brewster
stage line reports that last Tuesday tbe
town of Ruby City, in Okanogan county,
was entirely wiped out by fire, except a
livery stable. The fire is thought to have
originated by some persons who were
under the influence of liquor carelessly
handling matches. The old brewery
building, saloon and four dwelling
houses were burned ; loss f 3000.
Ruby City was the first town of any
Importance In Okanogan county, and
was tnce county seat. At one time 30U0
people lived there. Tbey were supported
by the rich silver mines. Lack of trans
portation and the drop in the price of
silver depopulated the town.

Small Per Cent of Them Desirous of
Washington, April 10. The desire of

is evinced in a report which shows tbat
of those who have been offered opportu
nity to re-enlist with the offer of a bonus
in travel pay of over $500, onlf about 7
per cent will accept. The volunteers, it
Is said, desire to come home by organiza

discharges of Individual soldiers have
been brought about by congressional
pressure, but as a rule General Otis has
been disapproving all applications for
discharges except in cise of sick or

Ortua Sais. No Sirrtnicr in k
to Those Who Art
Salkm, Or., April 14. Governor Geer
this morning received the following tele
gram from the Chicago Tribune :
"The governors of South Dakota and
Nebraska are demanding the recall of
the volunteers from their states from tbe
Philippines, on the ground that their
term of enlistment expired when the
ratificitions of the peace treaty were
exchanged, and that the present conflict
in the Philippines is in opposition to
liberty and in the Interest of capitalism.
Dj the people of your state demand the
return of your volunteers for the same
Tonight the governor telegraphed tbe
following reply :
mere is quite a general wish among
the people of Oregon that the volunteer
soldiers of the state may soon be returned
from Manila, but not for the reason in
dicated by the governors of the states
you mention, to-wlt., that 'the present
conflict in tbe Philippines is in opposi
tion to liberty and in the Interest of cap
"There is some juet:c3 in asking for
the return of the volunteers, now that
the war with Spain, for which they en
listed, has been honorably concluded,
and that the spasmodic difficulty yet
lingering in the Philippines should be
suppressed by the regular army of the
United States, which is amply equipped
for tbe purpose. It is believed, however,
that this wish Is confined to those of us
who are at home, as the Oregon bova at
the front quite generally express a de
sire to remain there uutil the difficulty
"Our people take no stock in the de
claration that the conflict in the Phil
ippines Is 'waged In opposition to liberty
and in the interest of capitalism.' The
very men who make this charge now are
the ones who, little more than a year ago,
were loudly accusing President McKin
ley of 'cowardice' and of delaying the
war with Spain in the 'interest of capit
alism,' as represtnted by Spanish bond
holders. "The seizing of Ihe Philippines was
an incident of that war wholly unfore
seen by anybody, applauded by every
patriotic citizen at the time, and they
could not now be relinquished without a
taint on our national h nor and a con
fession of nation il weakness.
"The charge that the American flag is
waving over a confl ct In (lie Philippines
'in opposition to liberty and in the in
terest of capitalism' savors very much
of a spirit of demagogy to which (he
people of Oregon are habitual strangers,
and which finds no lodgment in their
minds at this tune. T. T. Giicr,

Later, when the error was realise J.

further fact that he ha made improve
