Niw York, Feb. 21. A dispatch to
tbe Herald from Manila, says: The

waterworks and in front of King's bri

of King's position that the general eent

tbe insurgent trenches facing the Ameri

flank fire on the insurgents across the
Two guns of the Sixth artillery, onder
Lieutenant Ecott, pounded the insur
gent positions, while the troops from
Macati charged and drove the enemy be
fore them. Fifteen Filipino dead were
found and four wounded. Two Ameri
can soldiers were wounded by the ex
plosion of Springfield rifles.
The declaration of Aguinaldo that he
has made a humane war is a fabrication.
In the past few weeks the Red Cross haa
been like a red flag to the insurgents.
Captain Pierce, of McAtthur'a staff,
testifies that he has been shot at by
sharp-shooters 50 times in the provis
ional hospital. Not an ambulance or
litter came which was not a signal for a
shower of bullets.
The surgeons of tbe hospital corps, who
were giving aid to the Filipinos as well
aa to the American wounded, were a tar
get for the sharpshooters. A wounded
man who waa being carried from the
field was killed by insurgents concealed
in a tree. The Red Cross people are
now going armed.
Manila, Feb. 20, 10.10 A. M. The
enemy have apparently realized the
hopelessness of attacking the American
position, and are occupied chiefly by oc
casional sharp-shooting from the jungle,
whenever feasible. Fortunately, their
Ignorance of the use of sights minimizes

Just before the Bailing time of the Po

ahe could cross there. He says be saw

to talk to a geutleman who waa with her,
"Be careful,' be warned, as the took

He grabbed at her and caught her

the stranger was too excited. Cope

half an hour afterwards the body waa

The Salem boat had then gone.
The body was taken to the morgue.
It is understood she has a son here be

The coroner's story tallies with that of
Mr. Copeland. The gentleman accom
paning Mrs. Howe was Rev. A. Lingrin,
of 333 East Ninth street. She stayed at
his house last night, and he accompa
nied her to the boat tbis morning. Mrs.
Howe has been staying with her son in
law, J. B. Smalley, of Greeham.
Washington, D. C, Feb. 10. The
greatest interest attended the discussion
of the Spanish treaty. While the people
were almost unanimously for the treaty,
the minority of tbe senate were some
striving to embarrass the administration
while others were like Hale of Maine
and Hoar of Mass.. relics of tbe old
federalist party that opposed tbe war
with England and all the expansion that
has given our nation room to broaden
and won us prestige for all time. Pitch
fork Tillman on the one hand and
Senator Hoar on the other hand, show
the extremes that composed the oppo
sition to expansion.
At an opportune moment, on tbe
Sabbath day, aa the church bells were
ringing, word came from far Manila that
Aguinaldo was bo encouraged by the
belief that he had allies in the American
senate, that he bad organised war and
attacked the American forces at night,
as Indians always de. They suffered
the necessary defeat ; that the result of
this treachery will show the world the
difference between the Anglo Saxon,
race and the common run of oriental
humanity. This lesson will make easy
the pacification of the Philippines. It
had to come ; statesmen at the national
capital feel easier; they only regret that
loyal and valuable American lives were
sacrificed to the hesitancy of the senate
and the perfidy and miserable ambition
of Aguinaldo. This opening of war
