Manila, ; Sept. 26. The cruiser
Charleston, the monitor Monterey and
ihe gunboats Concord an$ Zafiro, with
;he marines" and bluejackets . from the
jruieer Baltimore, left Cavite Septem
ser , 19, and, as already t cabled; pro
seeded to Subig bay to destroy an in
mrgent cannon there. . ; ' ;
Owing to the bad weather, the opera
tion was. .' postponed i until "yesterday,
when the warships for three hours bom
barded the town of Olangapo and the
entrenchments Where the gun was situ
ated.'' Men from the' Charleston, Con
sord and - Zafiro were -then landed un

to the cannon,; which ; was utterly de
stroyed by guncotton, and then re
turned to the warships. . The Ameri
cans .had one matt wounded j during the
engagement." " ' " L . ' ' . .
While waiting in Subig bay for bet
ter weather, the Americans descried
Filipino reinforcements moving toward
Olangapo. At. 6:40 A.. M.( yesterday
the Monterey began to advance upon
the town, which was about three miles
sast of the ; monitor 's anchorage. The
Dhalreston, Concord, and Zafiro. fol
lowed.! At 7:20 the Monterey opened
Bre with her secondary and main bat
teries; the Charleston and Concord join
ing immediately. At 7:30 the insur
gent cannon1 answered the 'first shot
passing close to the Monterey's smoke
stack. The gun was fired twice only.
' The Amerioan bombarding then be
came generaL." At 9:30 the Monterey
advanced to a range of 600 yards, nsing
her main battery. Two hundred and
fifty men were landed about 800 yards
east of the cannon at 11 o'clock, under
a severe Mauser fire. . " ...
The men from the Charleston were
the first to ..reach the beach, but the
Concord's men were the first at the
gun,which they reached - at 11:10.
The cannon was found to be a 16cen
timeter Krupp gun, presumably ob-
tained from the Spaniards rMean while
the warships continued to shell the
shelving beach on the east and west
tide to silence the insurgent fire upon
the sailors from the trenches skirting
the beach. ?'-'Trr:'
Gunner. Olsen exploded 60 pounds of
guncotton in- three discharges in the
cannon, which had suffered from the
fire of the warships. " ' : ."
, The Americans then, wturned to the
boats, the firing inland being kept np
to protect the embarkation. The Con
cord's men were the last to leave the
shore and the warships were reached
, Cadet Brinzer, with the Concord's
launch, armed with a gatling, did ex

rrannport Leelennw- Kept Afloat by
Working Her foinps Steadily.
San Francisco, Sept. 26. The United
States transport Leelenaw came into
port today with the pumps steadily at
work to overcome the effect of a hole
in the ship's bottom. The Leelenaw
sailed for Manila September 2, with
a cargo of commissary stores and 200
horses for army use. After leaving this
port distemper was developed among
the horses, and so many of the animals
died that the Leelenaw put into Hono
lulu and landed there the commissary
storse and the surviving horses. The
transport .then started on the return
trip to tlis city. - ; ; -. :''
During the three days prior to reach
ing this port, so thick and constant was
the fog that no observations 'could be
taken, and, having lost her bearings,
the Leelenaw struck a reef hear Mon
tana, 20 -miles south of this port, last
evening. ' She' was for five hours stuck
fast on the rocks, and when she finally
floated off at high tide it was found that
the jagged rock had torn a hole in her
bottom. "'''"'.'" ':l '..
It will be necessary for the Leelenaw
to go in drydock for a considerable
overhauling. In addition to the leak,
the vessel was badly strained by her
experience oh the reef.

Snch la the Report From Strike Near
Ashland 880,000 Thin Seanon.
Ashland, Sept. 23. One thousand
dollars in gold was secured in two pans
of rock pounded -up and washed out
one day last woek at the Angle and
Brown strike on Mount Sterling, about
20 miles south of Ashland, and just
over the California line. - An Ashland
man who has just returned, from th
scene is responsible for the statement,
which is not doubted by those who ar
acquainted with the richness of the
lead, which is known as the Klondike.
This claim is located near the Bummit
of Mount Sterling, at an elevation of
nearly 8,000 feet above, sea level, and
was accidentally discovered about a
year ago by Messrs. Anglo and Brown,
the latter being a "pocket hunter" of
experience.; A small piece of rich float
was found, and in tracing it up almost
the first srtoke of : the pick into the
ground uncovered a streak of very rich
quartz and located the claim for them.
They took out several thousand dollars
in gold last year before the snows of
winter drove them off ' the claim, the
(jold being pounded out in a hand mor
tar, i This season it is estimated that
the lucky miners have takon out not
less than $20,000 in like manner, and
how long - their lead will last no one
pretends to know. . ". ; " i T " "
, They have run a cut into the moun
tain for a short distance and have only
followed., the pay. streak thus far to a
depth of 20 feet. r The gold is-found in
a porphyry formation or ledge which
lies on the bedrock and pitches into
the mountain at a considerable angle.
The find has led to a large number of
prospectors - trying to duplicate1 it in
the same section, but as yet without

Loss on Buildings and Grain - About
Salem, -Or., Sept. 25. -The mill and
elevator warehouse of the Salem Flour
ing Mills Company, looated at the
cornerpf Commercial and Trade streets,
were destroyed by fire at 4 o'clock this
morning, r, The ; total loss is about
$150,000, a large part of which will
fall -on farmers who had 'grain stored
at the mills. There was over 125,000
bushels of wheat stored in the build
ings,, only, about 25,000 bushels of
which belonged to the mill company.
The fire was caused by a dust explo
sion near the cleaners on the third floor
of the mill, and it spread rapidly.
The insurance oh the mill , company's
buildings and machinery,' which are
almost a total loss1 is about $60,000,
while their value is placed at about
$75,000. -Only about 30,000 bushels
of the stored grain was insured, so the
loss to the owners is great. . Consider
able of the grain not damaged by water,
it is thought,' can be cleaned and sold
for about half price, and the mill com
pany will take immediate steps to save
all that possibly can be saved. ' -"
The mill, which "was run as an in
dependent concern by men interested
in the Portland flouring mills, may
hever be rebuilt, as the Portland Flour
ing Mills Company owns another mill
in Salem. The fire was one of th
largest ever seen in Salem. ,
OUR . HEAD IS TURNED.
Bays Ooldwln Smith, Who Thinks
Dewey Is Overestimated. .
7 Toronto, Ont., Sept. : 25. Goldwin
Smith, writing in a local paper, says;
"Nothing could show the' extent to
which the head of Columbia has been
turned by the war.more than her ador
ation of the hero Dewey. What did
the hero Dewey and his comrades do?
They sat in almost perfect safety and
destroyed at long range a' line of help
less tubs, with some hundreds of the
poor Spaniards who manned them,
and who alone had any opportunity of

perfectly secure did the Americans feel
that they adjourned to breakfast in the
middle of their sport. There was
among them a single casualty," and had
they all gone tiger hunting one casual
ty at least "probably would have oc
curred. ' " .-';' " '
"For this, however, Dewey, is de
clared to be the equal of the great sea
men who conquered in the terrible days
of Aboukir, Copenhagen, Trafalgar. If
he were so inclined he might probably
be elected president of the United
" Canada "Tjannot possibly take part
in the celebration of Dewey's triumphs
without evidence of discourtesy" toward
Spain, a . friendly nation, which has
done Canada no wrong. . Spain, let it
be remembered, though deprived of her
possessions in this hemisphere, is Btill
a Mediterranean - power, decayed at
present, but capable of restoration.
The British government will hardly
thank the Canadian government for
making her an implacable enemy." 4

. Ex-Congressman Jerry Simpson was
hooted off the platform here this even
ing while addressing a local G. A. R.
reunion. : Mr. Simpson said t . .
""I glory in the spunk of Aguinaldo's
men. They are simply fighting to re
gain the land the Catholics took from
them. A local paper has asked: 'Who
is John Brown's soul marching with
Otis or Aguinaldo?J I believe John
Brown's soul is marching with Agtti
naldo." f. :;,,.-;'..- ;'-'(?. .:; v. r:f
Mr. Sipmson" said in substance ' that
he would rather be with Aguinaldo
than with General Otis. : An old sol
dier in the audience rose and said? (that
the speech was drifting too much into
politics. This was applauded and
greeted with cries of "Throw him out!"
and."Kick Simpson off the platforml"
Men and women arose and hissed", and
the men kept crying, "Put him out!"
. Simpson appealed to the crowd to sit
down. . "I am coming to my perora-.
tion," he said, although he had been
speaking only 15 minutes. Cries came,
"Take your peroration to Aguinaldo."
Simpson attempted to go on, but no
one could hear him 10 feet away. ' The
band struck up "The Star Spangled
Banner," and Mr. Simpson left the
platform;" His retirement was greeted
with prolonged cheers. . .
