I General C'orhiu said that every Volun
teer who participated In the fighting in
j the riiilippincN since ence was de
.clsred should have a medal of honor,
illy the term of their enliHtnients they
were entitled to withdraw from the ser
! vice, but they hud remained voluntarily,
performing more than was required of
them, which was mora than the ordinary
duty of a soldier.
It is exHH-tod that tomorrow there
will he further negotiations with the in
surgent representatives. While the
hope is expressed that our commission
will not hold out terms so severe as to
lead to a renewal of the fighting or the
withdrawal of the insurgents to another
stronghold further north, it is realized
that Otis must exercise care to make
sure that they do not in bud fuith take
advantage of the opportunity afforded by

from the rapidly approaching rainy

that bis sole effort is to shift the res

Achievement of thn Americana
Took Them by 8urrle,
Manila, April 28. General Otis said
today after the interview with the Fili
pino peace envoys :
"The insurgents were completely de
moralized when our- force crossed the
river and took the trenches beyond the
rebels, though their position in the Rio
Grande trenches was impregnnblo, for
they had dolled the Spaniards there In
18',MI, and thought they could do it
The insurgents have gathered at San
Fernando, where uon combatants report
they are burning and pillaging. The
soldiers are sni 1 to be mutinous.
General Lawton is again in touch
with bim, and conferred with them.
He refused, however, to speak authorita-
i tively oa the subject of their errand, re
ferring all inquiries to General Otis.
The Filipinos were then escorted by
Mjor-General J. S. Mallory to Manila,
reaching this place at 3 p. m. General
Otis' aide, Lieutenant SUJen, w as await
their arrival at the deiiot with a carriage
in which they were driven to the palace.
jThey were escorted directly to the office
of lieneral Otis. Jacob. U. bchurman,
I president of the Philippine commission,
anl Hon. Charles Denby, member of
i tue commission, soon joined the party.
News of the arrival of the Filipinos
under a flag of truce spread through the
citv rapidly, and many officers gravitated
lo the corridors of the palace.
At 5 o'clock the two Filipino officers,
escorted by Lieutenant Sluden and Msjor
Mallory, left the palace. They did not
look elated as the result of their task with
General Otis and the members, of the
Aguinaldo is evidently selecting the
army as a cloak for bis congress, bopirg
by subterfuge to overcome General Otis
consistent policy of ignoring the Filipino
government. The Filipinos' argument
is that it is impossible to arrango an ar
mistice without the sanction of the con
gress. General Otis punctured this
assumption by stat'ng that if General
Aguinaldo could make war without the
consent of the congress, he could stop
without referet.ee to that body. One of
the conferees afterwards remarked that
the Malays are shrewder than white
men in diplomacy.
While the insurgents are undoubted'y
tired of war, the leaders are torn with
There is a suspicion that it was hoped
by means of a conference to ascertain
what they could expect. If they saw
that anything is to be gained by con
tinuing the war, an armistice would
afford them an opportunity for recuperat
ing their forces.
It is an interesting commentary upon
Aguinaldo's Bcheme that only t0 of the
300 members of the Filipino congrefs
have taken the oath of allegiance which
their constitution requires.
A Filipino proclamation, replying to
the proclamation of the American com
mission, has appeared. It is signed by
Madini for the president, and is dated at
Canaisdro, April 10. It declares that
President McKinley issued the procla
mation in order to force the American
congress to ratify the cession of the
islands under the treaty of Paris.
"This contract of cession was made
with the Spanish after Spanish domina
tion bad been ended by the valor of our
troops," the proclamation asserts. The
proclamation complaius that the Fili-

War lner today bai Wen the nnn of
thn worr,t riots since the deadly labor
war of 18 )3. One man is I'eavl. another
i thought to be mortally wounded, and
property valued at 2.V),000 has been de
stroyed by giant powder and Ore. Tl
damagn wa done by onion men anil
sympathizer from C'jnyon creek, about
20 miles from Wardner.
This morning mob of from WK) to
1000 men, all of them armed ami many
of them masked, seized a train at
Hurke, at the head of Canyon creek.
Tljere were nine box car and a pasienr
ger coau-h, and they were black with the
mob. The iitor Brought with them
3i00 pound of giant powder.
After a parley of two hours 140
masked men armed with Winchesters.
Hurke in the lea l and War lner follow
ing, started with yells for the Bunker
Hill A Sullivan mill and other buildings,
a third of a mile from the depot. Thejr
sent pickets ahead, and one of thee
pickets fired a shot a a signal that the
mill was abandoned.
This wa misunderstood bythennia
body of the mob, who imagine I that
r.on union miner in the mills bad
opened fire on them, and they beyr
firing on their own pickets. About 1000
shot were tbus exchanged between the
rioters and their pickets, and Jack Smith
onnof the' pickets, formerly of British
Columbia, and a noted figure in drill
contests, was shot dead. The fatal error
wa discovered after a few seconds' Br
ing and Smith's body brought down
from the hillside.
By this time the strikers had taken
posse-tsion of the Bunker Hill A Sullivan
mill, w hich they found deserted, the
manager having directed his employee
not to risk their lives by battling with
Powder was called for.and 60 50-pound
boxes were carried from the depot to
the mill. The heaviest charge was
placed among the machinery of the mill
Another charge was placed under the
brick office building. Other charms
were placed around the mill. Then the
boarding-house, a frame structure, was
tired. Fuses leading to the charges
were lighted, and the strikers carrying"
the dead body of the picket, retired to a
At 2 :36 P. M. the fiast blast went oft".
It shook the ground for miles, and build
ings in Wardner, two miles away, trem
bled. At Intervals of about 3J seconds
four other charges went off, the fifth be
ing the largest and completely demolish
ing the mill. The loss to the Bunker
Hill A Sullivan Company is estimated
from $250,000 to $300,000.
In a tew minutes the strikers went
back to the station, the whistle was
blown for stragglers, the mob soon
climbed aboard and at 3 o'clock, just
three hours after Us arrival, the train
pulled out for Canyon creek.
During the fusillade from the guns of
the mob, Jim Cttayoe, a Bunker Hill A
Sullivan miliman, was severely shot
through the hips. It is reported that be
was carried off by the strikers, and bis
wound is trobably fatal. J.J.Rogers,
a stenographer in the employ of the com
pany, was shot through the lip, but his
wound is trivial.
This morning the 230 non-union
miners at the Bunker Hill A Sullivan
bad warning of the coming of the mob
and left the mine and took to the bills.
They have not been seen since. Union
men working in the Last Chance left the
mine this morning, presumably to take
part in the riot.
Touight the Bunker Hill A Sullivin
mine is closed. When it will be re
opened is a thing no living man can say.
With the mill wrecked it is impossible ta
handle the ore produced at the mine
workings. The Last Chance is likewise
closed down. It has been getting power
from the Bunker Hill mill, and the des
truction of those works will absolutely
prevent the Last Chance from working
for the next three months or until its
own compressor is complete. Mean
while the total working force of the town
is laid off.
The wrecking of thn mill plant in
volves the livelihood of 000 men. The
Bunker Hill mine up to the time of the
strike had been working 300 men and
the mill 00, while the Last Chance al
together employed 150.
As soon as the first word of the feci ious
trouble reached the town, all the saloons
closed. Most of the merchants of the
town shut up their establishments. As
the first shots were heard the excite
ment increased. Children were run-
