steamer Salvador, from Zamboanga, is
land of Mindanao, which has arrived
here, brines detai's of the occupation of
thetownby Commander Very, of the
United States gunboat Castine.
The revolutionists in Mimlanao were
led by Alvarez and Calixto, who lett
Luzon some time ago and for the last
seven months had been stirring np the
people, winning a considerable following.
The commercial depression and the lack
of food resulting from the island's
blockade set the people against the rev
olutionist? and culminated in the
assassination on November 15 of Calixto,
firebrand and the real leader of the
revolution, by Midel, mayor of the town
Midel, under a pretext, secured
Calizto's presence in Tetuan and where
the mayor's guards were stationed. The
latter fired a volley, killing Calixto in
stantly. Midel at once repaired to the
Castine and arranged with Commander
Very for the occupation of Zaniboanga.
Commander Very asked that Datto
Mandi, with COO of bis followers,
stationed on a neighboring island, come
The following morning Midel raised
the American flag over Zimboanga, the
Insurgents offering do resistance and
evacuating the town. The Castine was
saluted with twenty-one guns, and Coai
Blander Very landed 100 bluejackets ant;
took poeeeetion of the town and fortifies
tioni. Datto Mandi's men arrived in
the afternoon. They were armed with
wooden shields and swords, and were
Ofed on picket doty.
Commander Very dispatched the gun
boat Manila on November 15 to Jolo to
mvey troops toreinforce him. Acorn
piny of the Twenty-third regiment
under Captain Nichols, arrived on Nov

lowed them shortly. Mandi's followers
then returned home and Alvarez sought
to arrange for surrender of the arms
and artillery pieces.

NOT HIS BUSINESS AT ALL.

Bewildered, indeed, must have been
he man with views about women and
diamond frame bicycles when he found
himself hauled before a magistrate, as-
,.tl u juuiuiui warning' to mind
his own business and fined five dollars,
uuu au DC-cause he told a wheelwoman
that no respectable woman would ride
nstride a wheel.
It is and has been since the dawn of
life so much the habit of men to admon
ish women in general as to their upris
ings and downsit tings, it is not surpris
ing: that when a man with clear-cut
opinions as to just how girls sliou'.d go
a-sporting meets with a young woman
who is so radical as to prefer a diamond
to a drop frame bicycle that he should
condemn an exhibition which to him
savors of immodesty.
Have not he and his fellows or
countless generations defined modesty
for women, who, as a sex, meekly ac
cept their decrees; but here this upstart
of a nineteenth century girl not only
did not graciously receive his rebuke,
but she declined even to argue the mat
ter. Audaciously she mounted the for-
her-indecorous steed, thus nfTrontinir

vouchsafing him so much ns a look.
She went, however, only to return

confine his offensive remarks to the
women whose misfortune it is to be re
lated to him. One lesson in public man

ably suffice him. Vogue.

Fourth cavalry of the Filipino general,
Conon, with 800 men and officers, with
rifles, several American and seventy
Spanish prisoners, at Bayombong, in
the province of Nueva Vizcaya, was a
successful bluff. Monroe tapped the
wire, telegraphed to Conon that he was
advancing with a large force, and
demanded his surrender. After negotia
tions, Conon consented to capitulate to
the "superior" force, whereupon Monroe
telegraphed that he woild enter the
town with a small guard and receive the
garrison's surrender. He captured the
whole Filipino force, and secured their
arms, the rebels supposing Monroe bad
an army behind him.
Reported by Otis.
Washington, Dec. 2.--General Otis
informed the war department today of
tho surrender of Bayombong, in the fol
lowing dispatch :
"Manila, Dec. 2. A report is received
that Bayombong, with the province of
Nueva Vizcaya, surrendered November
2S to Lieutenant Monroe, of the Fourth
cavalry, who commanded the advance
scouts on the Carranglan trail, consist
ing of native scouts. The insurgent
general, Conon, surrendered his entire
force, numbering 800 men, armed with
Mausers, and a number of officers.
Seventy Spanish and two American
prisoners were secured and probably
considerable insurgent property.

The deceased was horn in Ohio in 1819.
He came to the Pacific coast in a early
day, settling first at Castle Rock, Wash.,
where he conducted a store. In 1851 he
was elected presiding officer of the legis
lative council of the territory of Wash
ington, and subsequently he served three
years as judge of that territory, receiving
his appointment from President Pierce.
He came to Corvallis early In the '60s,
and began the practice of law. In 1864
he was sent to the legislatnre from Ben
ton connty, and was elected speaker of
the house. From 1872 to 1874 he was
prosecuting attorney of the second
judicial district. Several years ago he
gave np the practice of his profession on
account of his advanced age, and retired
to bis farm in King's valley, where he
has since resided.
Plans of the Opposition to Delay Gold
Standard Legislation Filibuster
ing In the Senate.
Washington, Dec. 2. The nomination
of Richardson for the minority leader-
ship of the hoese is one of the first moves
towards returning reason that tho Demo
crats have made. Of all ine men mat
were candidates, Richardson is superior
a a parliamentarian, and is ft man cap
able of leading his psrty. He will be a
very great improvement over Bailey.
Richardson should have been nominated
four years ago when Bailev was selected,
but McMillan was a candidate from the
same state, which gave Bailey the leader
ship that he has made ridiculous during
the past four years.
Representative Moody was the first
member of the Oregon delegation to ar
rive. He has taken rooms at the Shore-
ham. Representative Tongue is tempo
rarily at the Oxford. Senator Simon is
expected tomorrow night, and Senator
McBride by Monday.
The Democrats intend to adopt a very
aggressive policy in order to make cam
paign matorial. They expect to fight
the currency and gold-standard bill with
all the vigor and strength they have, not
only in the senate, but also in the house.
If the majority prevails, they will also
make an onslaught on tho expansion
idea, although Richardson may try to
prevent them from commftting suicide
in this particular. The house will not
bo able to filibuster against the currency
bill, as the rules of that body are so ex
plicit that a majority can control.
P0SED OF TODAY
Taylor, of Ohio, Has Already
Objected to Swearing in Utah Con
gressman Rumors That He Will
Xot Qualify President's Message
Washington, D. C, Dec. 4. Mr.
Taylor, of Ohio, has objected to the
swearing in of Mr. Roberts, of Utah.
Washington, Dec. 4. After a con
ference by the house leaders on both
sides, it became generally understood
that the Roberts case would g over
until tomorrow, after the reading of the
president's message. This will permit
the formal organization of the house and
the selection of seats to proceed today.
Washington, Dec. 4. The opening of
the F'ifty-sixth congress at noon today
attracted that widespread attention
which always attaches to the annual as
sembly of the national lawmakers.
There was added interest in the event
this year, for many far r 'aching ques
tions waiting consideration gave unusual
importance to the return of congress.
Aside from this the Roberts' case intro
duced phase which promised some
thing outside of the ordinary develop
ments of an opening day.
Early in thA day the throngs began
converging at the capitol. The day was
bright and propitious and the thorough
fares leading to the building presented a
gay and animated appearance. Within
the building all was bustle and excite
ment. Long before the hour for calling
the house to order, the outer doors were
open to all and through these fljwed
continuous streams of humanity until
the great corridors, galleries and 10-
tundas were fairly packed.
As early as 10 o'clock the conspicuous
fignres of congress began to arrive and
this served to give the waiting throngs a
temporary diversion. General Hender
son went direct to tfce speaker's private
office, where he shared bis time with the
boose leaders and with those pleading
for admission cards. Representative
Richardson, of Tennessee, the Demo-'
cratic honse leader, was also early on the
scene, conferring with his lieutenants.
Shortly before 11 o'clock, Mr. Roberts,
of Utah, in silk hat and black frock suit,
made his way through the crowd to the
members' private lobby. Here he
chanced to meet Mr. Richardson and the
two held a short conference as to
whether Mr. Roberts would seek to ad
dress the house. A buzz of comment
followed the gentleman from Utah
wherever he went, but there was no

London. Dec. 4. Tne Daily Chronicle
publishes the follow ing dispatch, dated
Wednesday morning, from its corre
spondent at the Modder river camp:
"The severest engagement our column
has yet hail and probably the severest oi
the whole campaign, was fought yester
day on the banks of Modder river. The
battlo was waged fiercely for nearly
fourteen hours. The enemy occupied a
strongly entrenched position, their front
extending five miles along the bank of
the stream. They were well supplied
with artillery and fought desperately.
"The battle started at daybreak, our
guns shelling the Boers' left. The enemy
replied with Hrtillery, Hotchkiss and
Maxims, and the artillery duel lasted
some hours. Then there was a brief lull
in the enemy's operations, of which we
immediately took advantage. Tbe in
fantry advanced across the plain towards
the river in two brigades. The guards
on the right were met by an a fill hail
of bullets from the enemy's sharp
shooters, posted close to the river on the
opposite bank. Ours had no cover what
ever and were simply mowed down. It
seemed impossible to live through the
terrible fire, but the brave fellows did
not retreat an inch. Ihelioernre was
horribly accurate, and they must have
numbered at least 10,000.
"The Scats guards advanced COO yards
before they were fired on. They then
had to lie down to escape tho deadly
fu9l!ade which lflBted without Inter
mission throughout the dev. The High
landers made several attempts to forca a
pns?ago of'the river, but they were ex
posed to such a murderous, enfilading
fire that they had to retire after they had
suffered terribly. Subsequently a party
of the guards g ot over and held their own
for hours against a vastly superior force.
"The general opinion of the staff is
that there has never been such a sus
tained fire in the annals of the British
army as the troops had to face yesterday.
Our men fell in dozens while trying to
rush the bridge. Among the many
heroic deeds, one of the most conspicuous
was that of Lieutenant Codington, of the
Coldstream guard-, and Captain Sell
heyn.of the Queensland contingent, with
a dozen members of the Coldstream
guard, who jumped into tho river and

Salem, Or., Dec. 3. The appropria
tions for the three state school the
blind, deaf-mule and ' reform schools
located in Salem and vicinity, made by
the last legislature, are so small, com
pared with those for the preceding two
years, that there is some duubt as to the
blind and deaf-mute schools being kept,
open for the full time fixed for the next
two years. The reform school, however,
will have to be kept open, nccording to
law, even if tre appropriation fur the
years lbDOand l'JJO should be exhausted.
The present state board of education is
in favor of closing the blind anil deaf
mute rchools next year earlier than in
tended, if it shall be seen that to keep
them open for the full length of timo
will create a deficiency. It is impossible
to mako an accurate statement nntil the
close of the ear. All the Institutions
are now running within their appropria
tions. The cost of improvements mado
at tho schools will c it a figure when con
sideration of the possible exhaustion of

"Four bottles of Electric Bitters has

caused her great Buffering for years.
Terrible sores would break out on her

could give no help ; but her cure is com

shows what thousands have proved,
that Electric Bitter is the best blood
