Fate of Licuteoant Gilmore's Party
Remains a Mystery.
Nsjw Yokk, April 21. A dispatch to
the Herald from Manila gays: Admiral
Dewey, in an interview today, raid the
expedition of the gunboat Yorktown to
Baler was purely to rescue the Spanish
soldiers and privates who are being be-
seiged in a cbnrch there. The soldiers
refused to surrender when expected to
lay down their arms by General Rios at
the end of the Paris peace conference.
Admiral Dewey said he did not know
what had become of Lieutenant Gil more
and the 14 men in the launch. They
had been sent to oonnd the mouth of
the river, but went beyond the bend,
out of sight of the Yorktown. The sup
position Is they were raptnred or killed
by -the Spaniards or the 400 insurgents
who are besieging the Spanish garrison.
Admiral Dewey declines to say what
steps he will take toward a punitive ex
pedition. General Rios, the Spanish commander
when interviewed, eaid be did not think
the garrison at Balar knew the war be
tween the TJuited States and Spain had
ended. He had sent an officer in Jan
uary to tell the garrison to surrender.
The garrison refused to surrender, either
not believing the officer or fearing they
would be trapped by the insurgents.
Since then General Bios has had no
communication with the garrison, and
this is the first information that the
Spanish flag Is still flying at Baler.
He thought the Americans were shot
by the insurgents, as the Spaniards
themselves are besieged and have no
way of getting to the river. General
Rios said that he bad not been con
General Otis doubted whether the
proposed exchange of Filipino for
Spanish prisoners would succeed, as the
insurgents ore holding the Spaniards in
the hope that it will help their cause.
They are not seeking.money.
The letter containing General luos
last appeal to Aguinaldo said the sur
render of the Spanish prisoners would
create a bond of sympathy between the
Filipinos arid Spain.

tween Malolos and Calumpit
Manila, April 21, 9:0o a. m. At 6
o'clock this morning three South Dakota
companies marched from Bocave and in
conjunction with three companies of the
Minnesota regiment from Gogioto, north
of Bocave, encountered a rebei force
numbering fully 500, when two miles
out. The rebele retired three miles in
fairly good order, in spite of the fact
that they Buffered heavy losses. The
Americans, having exhausted their am
munition, were compelled to return to
4:05 p. m. The heat is intense. At
noon the thermometer registered 05 de
grees and the mercury was still rising.
There were several prostrations from
beat among the troops, but only one
man was wounded. Later army tugs
opened fire on the enemy along the river
The rebels are unusually active from
Malolos as far as Calumpit. They have
been discovered within two miles of the
railroad. Fires are burning east of the
railroad and it would appear that the
rebels are evacuating the 'oothill towns
in anticipation of an attack upon the
part of the American troops.
Washington Regiment Repel An Attack.
Manila, April 21, 10:45 a. m. A
force of about 200 rebels yesterday after
noon attacked the outposts of the Wash
ington regiment near Tagnig, south of
Pasig and Pateros. Two companies im
mediately engaged the enemy and ad
vanced into the open in skirmish order.
The rebels were checked and routed
after two hours' fighting, leaving twelve
men killed on the field and several
wounded. The American troops also
obtained possession of Mauser rifles and
many other weapons. - Three Americans
A Pleasant,' Si tuple, Safe but Effectual
Cure for It.
Catarrh of the stomach has long been
considered the next thing to Incurable.
The usual symptoms are a full or
bloated sensation after eating, accomp
anied some times with sour or watery
risings, a formation of gases, causing
nressure on the lungs end heart and
difficult breathing; headache, fickle ap
petite, nervousness and a general played
out and languid feel in if.
There isolten a foul taste in the month,
coated toniiue, and if the Interior of
stomach could be seen it would show a
slimy, Inflamed condition.
The cure for title common and obstinate
diaeaso is found in a treatment which
muses the food to be readily and
thoroughly digested before it has time to
ferment and irritate the delicate mucous
surfaces of the stomach.
To iei iire a prompt and healthy digest
ion is the one necesnaiy thing to do, and
,n norn.al digestion is secured the
citarrlml condition will have dtsap-
Arcordirm to Pr. Harlanson the safest
and bent treatment is to use niter each
meal a tablet, composed of Diantrse,
Aseptic Pepsin, a little Nux, Golden Seal
and fruit acids.
These tablets can now bo found at all
lr,.,f mnres under the name of Stuart's
it.n..niiU Tablets, and, not being a pat
ent medicine, can be used with perfect
safety and assurrance that healty appo-
tite and thorough digestion will follow
their regular nse after meals.
Mr. J. Booher.of 2710 Dearborn St.,
Cbicig;, 111., writes: "Catarrh is a
local condition resulting from a neglected
coid in the head, whereby the lining
membrane of the nose becomes in A imed
and the poisonous discharge therefrom,
passing back into the throat, reiche the
stomach, thus producing catarrh of the
stomach. Medical authorities prescribed
for me three years for catarrh of the
stomach without cure, but today I am
the happiest of men aiter using only one
box of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. I
cannot find appropriate words to express
my good feeling. I have found flesh,
appetite and sound rest from their use.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is the safest
preparation as we'll as the simplest and
most convenient remedy for any form of
indigestion, catarrh of the stomach,
biliousness, sour stomach, heartburn and
bloating after meals.

troubles, by addressing the F. A. Stuart

Initiation cf a New Campaign.
Washington, April 22. The war de
partment today received a cablegram
from General Otis announcing the for
mation of a new flying column under
commando! General Lawton, and the
initiation of a new campaign which is
expected to result in clearing out the
jungle in the county north of Manila up
to the foothills of the mountains on the
northeast and np to the termination of
the railway at Bulucan. The text of
the dispatch was not made public, but
it is understood to agree closely with the
account of the movements contained in
associated press dispatches from Manila.
BY WAY OF :
THE AIR LINE
Wireless Telegraphy Experiments in
Chicago, April 22. Professor Jerome
J. Greene, the new disciple of Marconi,
eat at his receiving instrument placed
on the eighth floor of the Marquette
building tonight and received telegraphic
signals sent via the air lino from the
Tribune building, two blocks away. It
meant success for his wireless telegraphy
experiment for that distance, and was a
triumph for theyoungscientist over con
ditions which were exceedingly unfavor
able. The first test of the day, when an
attempt was mado to communicate from
the Dearborn station at Polk street to the
Tribune building, had proved a failure.
Subsequent investigation disclosed the
fact that local disturbances at the send
ing station probably were responsible.
In the second experiment signals were
transmitted clearly and accurately from
one room to another through walls and
three thick doors. The second test sent the
dots and dashes to the sounder across
Dearborn street without a break. Then
Professor Greene onSented to make the
test over the long distance, and the ap
paratus was transferred to the Marquette
building, a distance of abjut 150 yards.
The vertical wire was lowered from the
lGtb floor, and the receiver w as placed on
the eighth floor. When all was ready
for trial, word was sent through the
telephone to the sending station, where
the professor's assistant, Albert Kachur,
was waiting the command. The trial
was a success. Further experiments
will bo made Monday.

Mr. J. E. Lilly, a prominent citizen
of Hannibal, Mo., lately had a wonder
ful deliverance from a frlghtlul death.
In telling of it he says: "I was taken
with typhoid fever, that ran into pneu
monia. My lungs became hardened. I
was so weak I couldn't even sit up in
bed. Nothing helped me. I expected
to soon die of consumption, when I
heard of Dr. King's New Discovery.
One bottle gave great relief. I con
tinued to use it, and now am well and
strong. I can't say too much In its
praise." This marvellous medicine is

Government Officials Greatly Pleased
With the Stand Taken by Governor
Washington, April 22. General Otis
cables the president that he has inter
cepted many cables and messages from
politicians and state leaders in America
to volunteers in the Philippines urging
the men to stand on their rights and re
fuse the government further service,
now that peace is formally and finally
declared. The president has instructed
General Otis to send copies of the same
messages and all evidence he can find
of sedition there, and it is believed that
some one may be dealt with harshly for
treason and sedition.
General Otis considers the offense
grave, and as the messages are clearly
within the law against sedition, he has
held up all such and notified Wash
ington. In thisconnection government officials
are greatly pleased with the expression
of Governor Geer, of Oregon, who de
clares it would be a disgrace to the
state and unjust to the Oiegon volun
teers to request their return at a time
when it would embarrass the adminis

in light marching order.
This force started at 5 o'clock this
morning over the Novaliches road, tra

The Dakota regiment first encountered
the enemy in front of Novaliches at 8

troops, but their fire was silenced 15
minutes later, and they retired in that

the rough roads nrounl Novaliches.
They were considerably annoyed by the
fire of the rebel sharpshooters from the
jungle for two hours.
At 2 o'clock it the atternoon the rebels
were in full flight, leaving many dead
on the field, and onr troops were com
pelled to take a brief rest in the shade,

further information on this point. The.
secretary says he has no doubt the ad
