The Oregon Oity Troops Were Not at
the Siege of Manilla, but They are
Now Stationed There, and Dwell
in Marble Palaces.
J. D. Humphrey, who iB a private in
Company A, Second Regiment, Oregon
Volunteers, stationed at Manilla, writes
to Charles A. Fitch an interesting let
ter under date of August 18th. Jack
has many friends in Oregon Oity, who
will be pleased to hear from him. The
substance of the letter is given as fol
I now take pleasure in writing you a
few lineB in haste, as the mail goes out
in the morning. We havn't had time
for anything since Manilla fell by the
wayside. We had no trouble, -what
ever, in entering the city, but the troops
that went through the trenches outside
the city ' encountered quite a battle.
Dewey tore their forts and trenches in
side out, but not a shot was fired at the
fleet. He turned the gatling gun into
the trenches and fairly slaughtered the
Spaniards. A little of this went a long
way with the enemy, and they hat
tened to get inside of the walls.
Only 650 of the Oregon olunteers
came to Manilla. The remainder are at
Cavite, including the Oregon Oity Com
pany. We landed from small boats in
front of the city under cover of Dewey s
guns, and had about 30 minutes march
to the city walls, where they were wait
ing to receive us at the gate. The gate
is a large arch in the wal1 and bears the
dnto of 1750. bo vou see it is quite an
old city wall.
We marched to the government build
ings where there were 10,000 Spanish
soldiers armed to the teeth.
We raised the flag, and gave three
cheers for Old Glory, and then pro
ceeded to disarm the Spanish soldiers
Almost every gun that was captured
was loaded and cocked, while not a man
of our regiment carried a loaded gun.
When General Merritt, appeared on the
scene he said that it was a great day for
Oregon, marching in, as they did, with
out a loaded gun and capturing the city.
We had a load to carry during the
siege, as each man was provided with
250 rounds of ammunition and three

LETTER FROM ARTHUR 1I0LDE N.
Arthur Holden writes an interesting
letter from Manilla to Fred J. Meyer,
under date of Aug. 20th. The follow
ing extracts are taken from the letter :
Friend Fred : I suppose by the time
this reaches you the Spanish-American
war will be a thing of the past, but you
may like to get a letter just the' same.
Company land three others of Sec.
ond Oregon, did not have a hand in the
capture of Manilla, and, of course, we
felt very much slighted. I stood on
high wall where I could see the whole
performance at Manilla.
Company I was moved into Manilla
three days ago, and we have the finest
birracks in the whole island.'
The boys are all so well pleased in the
new location, that they express a desire
to stay two years. -.j.

one of Second street in Portland to
some extent. The people are a mix

saw, but they are so proud, that when
