New York, May 24. A dispatch to
the Journal and Advertiser from Manila
says: General Lawton Is resting with
6000 men at Candaba after thirty days
of successful campaigning. He said to
the Journal correspondent:
"It pained me when we got into San
Isidro to see on the walls of the prison
the names of the fifteen Americans from
the Yorktown. From Colonel Ray, the
Spanish officer whom we 'rescued, I
learned that one of the American prison
ers escaped from his captors. His lib
erty was short lived, for he was recap
tured. 'He was stretched on the ground
befoiehis fellow-pritoners and twenty
lashes were given to him.
"We found a letter near San Isidro,
written by one of the Yorktown'a crew,
saying that thev were being kicked, that
their hair was being pulled out and that
they were cruelly treated in various
other ways, and praying their fellow-country-men
to hurry to their release.
The insurgents mike a practice of mur
dering the Chinamen who fall Into their
hands, and our men, I suppose, should
consider themselves fortunate that they
have not been similarly treated, though
the cruelties and indignities heaped on
them must be hard to bear. I would
have advanced to Tarlae, but was in
formed that I was north of the insur
gents' main forces. Hence I asked for

Insurgents were over 400 killed, while we
have taken 1000 prisoners. I released

Turning In for Rest.
Washington, May 22. While it is
not so affirmed at the department, the
recent movement is generally believed
to mark the end of the active campaign
before the wet weather eels in. Mac
Arthur is at San Fernando, south of
Aryat, where Kobbe and Lawton are
now joined. This is a point that has
previously been spoken of as a possible
summer base for American northern
outposts. Lawton'e tnrning in bis

down tbe Rio Grande is a natural re

surgents at San Isidro and crush them

Bears Killing Sheep.
Corvallih, Or.; May 24 For several
weeks bears have been playing havoc
with sheep in the bills, a dozen miles
west of Corvallis. Hunting parties have
scoured the woods anJ canyons, but all
efforts to rid the country of the maraud

Davis, of Woods creek, set up bear
trap made of 102, that has already made
short work of two bears. The trap Is a
floor of logs ten feet square, on which Is
a log pen, twelve inches deep. A log

hinges. The lid is very heavy, and is

Philippines are the Key to Oriental
Commerce and Civilization.
New York, May 24. A dispatch to
the Journal and Advertiser from Hong
Kong quotes Admiral Dewey as saying,
on board the Olympia :
"The courtesy of these visitors I warm
ly appreciate, but I am too much worn
out and sick to receive them. I am not
sorry to leave Manila at this time; I
could not stand the care and responsibil

"It is responsibility that kills. Dur

came to Manila, I have not had one sick
day until now. A year is long enough
in this climate for an old man, and I am
glad to be permitted a rest. On this ac
count, I expect to remain in Hong Kong
two weeks. That ought to recuperate
me. My intention is to spend the time

"I have the greatest enthusiasm in tbe
future of the Philippines. I hope to see
America possess the key to Oriental
commerce and civilizition. The brains
of our great country will develope the
untold agricultural and mineral re
sources of the islands. We must never

on another great war. We will never

was there and made a statement to tber

Beachert met the girl in the road about
a mile and a half from her home and
dragged her from her horse for the pur
pose of ommitting a dastardly crime.
He carried her into the brush and then
changed his mend, and told the girl that
he had concluded to. kill her instead.
She grew hysterical and begged for her
life. He then gave her bis watch and
pocketbook, and instructed her to give
them to his mother, and said that he
would kill himself instead. With that
he shot himself before her eyes.
Tbe shooting took place shortly after
6 o'clock, and the girl wandered about
until after 8 before she found her way
out to the road leading to her home
The horse went home by himself and a
search was at once iosuituted for Miss
Hilton. She was nnable to give a clear
account of the affair for some time,
which probably accounts' foe the delay
