The Filipinos ie treated with small loss. ,," The engagement developed into a dis astrous though successful, fight. The insurgents had , a horseshoe .trench, about a mile long, enoiruling a rice field on the edge of a wood. , , ;,; Major Bell, with 40 cavalrymen, en countered a strong outpost. ' One of his men was killed and five were wounded by a volley. , The Americans retired, carrying. their wounded . under fire and with great difficulty, being closely pur sued, fog enabling the enemy to creep up to them.. Two men, who were carry ing a comrade were shot in the arms, but they ooutinned with their burden. Major Bell eent for reinforcements to rescue the body of the killed cavalry man, and 'a battalion of the . Nebraska, legiment, under Major , MufTord, ar rived and advanced .until checked by volleys , fiom the enemy's " trenches. The Americans lav about 800 yards from" the trenches behind rice furiowa under fire, for two hours.

The men immediately -. recognized ' him and. raised a cheer. Colonel Stotsenhurg, deciding to charge as the cheapest way but of-the difficulty, led the 'attack at the head of his .'regiment. He fell with a bullet in the breast, dying in stantlyt .about 200 yards, from the breastwork. ' ' ' - ' ! ,. Lieutenant Sisson fell with a bullet in l is heait, the bullet striking him noar the pioture tf a girl, suspended by a ribbon from h is neck. In the meantime the artillery had arrived and shelled the trenches. The Filipinos stood until the Nebraska troops were riyJit on the trendies, and then they bolted to the second line of the trendies, a mile back. The Nebraska regiment lost two pri vates and had many wounded, inulud ing two lieutenants. The Iowa regi ment had several wounded. The Utah regiment bad one oflkei and three men acuiided. Thirteen; dead Filtpimw "wa found in the trenches. Their loss was comparatively small on uccount of their safe shelter. ' The Americans carried the seoond trench with smail loss, and are holding the -town tonight. ; ' ' Colonel Stotsenhurg had won a repu tation as one of the bravest fighters in the army. He always led his regiment and had achieved remarkable popular ity with his men since the war began, although, during his first colonelcy, the voliinteeis who were not used to the rigid discipline of the regular troops thought him a hard officer. The loss of the Nebraska regiment in the campaign is ilie greatest sustained by any regiment, and today's disaster hus greatly saddened oflioers and men, who promise to take fierce vengeance in the next fight.

' ' ' ' I ON A , TECHNICALITY. , The Charge of General Mllea Will Sot .... t He Siutultied. . Washington, April 24. The foreoast of the beef inquiry report- indicates that the charges of General Miles will not be sustained, although, there is such a mass of testimony to show that bad beef was distributed to, (he army. The leuHon for this will be technical. Miles allowed nothing in his charge against canned beef, but used the term "embalmed beef." On this techni cality it may be shown that the charges were not sustained. The people will not be convinced that the board was not packed in the interest of the war department. It is also possible that there will be a de mand for an investigation by congress fiom those who believe that neither the war committee nor the beef board was unbiased. The people are not ready to accept the reason of the two boards, who seem to sustain Algorism in the department. ENTIRE PARTI DEAD Timber Cruisers' That Left Seaside Were Poisoned.

II. Doty's body was found and brought into Seaside Satur day afternoon," Louis Chance, known aa "Indian Louie;" 'and John Burke were engaged to start out in search of the re mniuder of, the party, who consisted of P. E. Heikiuau, a civil engineer, of this city; W. T. Kad'r. a timber lo cator, of Portland, and A. J. Cloutrie, of Seaside, who accompanied the party as a guide, as he was thoionghlv famil ial with that' section of the country. ' This' afternoon "Indian Louie" re turned with the information that they had found the bodies of Heikman aud Radir at ihc foot of Sugar Loaf monn tain,, some, distance apart, and about three, miles .from wheie Dory's body was found. "Indian Lotiie" returned to L'ive the news,' while Burke continued toseaic'h for the body of Cloutrie. Ac cording to information received, there were ' no marks -of : violence on the bodies,' and the,: cause of 'their' death can at the present time only be sur mised, but it is generally supposed that it was the result of eating poisoned canned meat or vegetables. A party started out from Seaside this aftornoou to bring back the bodies, but i may, be several days before they will arrive, as it is about IS miles through a very rough countiy. Some Writing mav be' found on one of the bodies that may explain the cause of the cruisers' deaths, but it now appeail quite cer tain that they had been dead longer than at first supposed. The last entry in the field notes found on Doty were dated Apiil 0, only two days after the patty had started out from Seaside. P. E. Heikmann was 'ii yeais ot aire, and a native of Germany. His father is now a major in the German army. He came to this country about 20 years ago, and was employed foraev eral years In the engineering depart ment of the Union Pacific at Omaha. - A. J. Cloutrie was 65 years of age. He came to this county from Portland about four years ago, and lived at Sea side during most of the time. "Indian Louie" today made the fol lowing statement: "My opinion is that Cloutrie got hurt in some wiy, aud they nil stayed witli him until he died, meantime exhausting all their provisions, matches, eto. After Cloutrie's death they evidently wete lost, and wandered about seeking tu recover their bearings. Whether the supposition that the death of any or all of the party was due to poisoning from canned meats or other edibles is true, theie was noth. inn in their surroundings to indicate Cloutrie was one of the most practical woodsmen iu this section of the conn- Irv. According to the notes found on Dotv's body, the party was th tough itl work and on its way out." ARMY AT CALUMPIT. MrtcAi-thur'l TrottnR Itcfure the Hehel Htrungliiiid. Manila April ' 20.

John Bull Will tint Abrogate Clayton ttulwer Treaty fur Nothing. New York, April 26. A special to the Herald fiom Washington tuys: Al though willing lo abrogate the Clayton Bulwor treaty, Great Britain hat made it plain to the United Slates that she expects an equivalent in return for her action. This equivalent will be exact ed during the negotiations of the American-Canadian commission, which is to resume sessions in Washington in August next. It is because of a demand for con cessions equal in value tc that which will be given to the United States in the abrogation of the Clayton-Bulwer treaty that the negotiations have not progressed with the pioniptneso at first expected. It is apparent to the ofiioials now that Great Britain proposes to una the proposition to abrogate the treaty to further its own aims in connection with the settlement of the AluskaiT boundary and recipiocity questions. Gieut Biitain is determined to make every efloit to secure entry to the Northwest Teiritory through Alaska, and the United States is not willing to give it to her. It may be, therefore. that Blie will suggest that in return for such an outlet she will surrender all her rights in the Nicaragua!! canal. President MuKinley and Secretary Hay have determined not to enter into any negotiations with - either Costa Rica or Nicaragua respecting the Nic aragua canal until the new isthmlun canal commission has submitted its re port. The Nicaiagua canal commission will report within a short time, and the presiJent will theu announce the peisonnel of the isthmian commission. The now commission will then proceed to Panama and later to Nicaragua, and it Is the expectation of the president that It will submit its teport in time for consideration early in the next ses sion of congress. , ... ..
