Manila, May 8. The army gunboat a

today from an rx-litlon up the Han
Fernando rivtir where it waa learned
that jnnt In-lorn the battle of Han Thomaa
the inatiwnt were almoet plunged into

with the Americam waa inevitable, aent
bark to Ilacorlor to demand of (Jeneral
Maarardo reinfori-ementa. Maaeardo

Alfiiinaldo. Luna, with a Military regi

Mawardo ordered hia command lo form

Aguiilaldo waa terrified by the aitna
lion and ordered hia chief (J staff, Col
onel Arguellea, to make peace at all
liezarde. The . soldiers were waiting
order to fight when Arguellea railed a
ronferunre with the rival generals.
Aguinaldo liegired Luna and Maacardo
not to plungn the Filipino furcea into
civil strife at such a time.
His entreatiea prevailed, Luna re
turned to the font with reinforcements,
and Maiwanlo was court-martialed for
inauWdination. The battle of Kan
Tomas followed, and Luna received
wounds in the ahoulder and groin that
will surely disable him for the rent of the
campaign, and may cause hia death.
(itiatfua was bombarded and carried
by accaull. The Insurgents fired the
town and abandoned a small gunboat of
s It waa from the civil governor of the
district, Joae Knfante, who stayed to
welcome the Americans, that the news
about Luna was received. He said that
6O00 to oiXX) bad been killed since the
beginning ol boatilitics, and 500 insur
genta ret.eated from UuaKiia toward
Hararwhen they beard the cannonading
by the gunboala aa they approached up
the river. In the graveyard at Guagua
are 400 newly made grave.
The insurgent forces have been divi
ded, one body, under command of Gen.
Mascardo, going to the went of Han Fer-
nando, and the other, commanded by I
General Luna, moving north. P.oth
these leader claim vupreme command
of the Filipino army, General Luna will
fall back to Terlac, and from that place
move toward San IcaJoro.
Geneaal McArthur will make San Fer
Fernando bis base of operations, (lend

may lie necessary.

at San Fernando w ith a daring ti ick yes
terday. A railway train with an engine
at each end, was run almost to the
American outposts, and in plain siht of
the town. Before they could be reached
a gang of natives sprang off the train
and tore up several length of railway
track, boarded the train again and
steamed away, ao quickly that there was
no opportunity to capture the raiders.
The Nebraska regiment is asking for
temporary relief Irom duty. Only 375.
men of this regiment are at the front.
The army giinboau) Lnguna de Bay

Captain Grant, which started up the San
Fernando river lor Guagua yeHterday, aa
waa presumed to establish there a base
of supplies for the troops engaged in the
northern campaign, returned today, Gen
eral MacArtlmr having failed to connect
with the expedition. The gunboat
found the rebels entranced at Sasmoan
and Guagua on tho water fronts of the
towns. The vessels steamed past the
works, shelling the occupants and driv
ing them out. Landing parties from the
boats entered both tovns, capturing, at
Saamoan, a Spanish captain in uniform,
who was ostensibly a prisoner in the
hands of the rebels, and also a native
ollicor. Arriving at Guagua, the town
and a small gunboat were found to be
burning and the natives were evacuating
the place in consequence of the bombard
ment. At Sasmoan the landing party
captured a number ol Filipino lings and
a quantity of arms, chiefly bolos and
bows and arrows, besides a lot of band
instruments, which the men played as
they marched back to the boats
Captain Grant's expedition will prob
ably return up the San Fernando river,

War department officials eeem to be
more encouraged than ever over the
condition of alTaira in Manila. The re
port of Otis Indicate that the American
troops are well disposed. It has been
evident that tho Insurgent who were op
erating in swamp and Jungle west of
Mac-Arthur have been very annoying,
hut army gunboats have "lade It too hot
for them to remain. Lawton appear
to m pushing northward 15 mile to the
eaat of .Mac Arthur. The Itio Grande
river lie between them, and there the

portions of the dispatch which the de
partment has not made public possibly

Manila, April 2. per transport Roan
oke to San Francisco, May 8. It is note
worthy that the ldier have performed
their tasks with such signal bravery and
patience. Instances of personal bravery
are numerous, and the American troop
have never faltered under fire.
In one of the aide encounters along
the firing line, which have become such
everyday event that they are not
talked of here, though some of them de
serve place in history, Captain Fort
son, of the Washington regiment, lost
hia life. Insurgent eharpihootera, hived
in a atone house under mask of French
flag, were peppering the line of the
Washington near Taxig, making life
uncomfortable. A atalwart private, a
sharpshooter w ho bad distinguished him
self by solitary night excursions, from
which he never failed to bring In one or
two Filipino g'ins, captured from hi
victims, and who will be recommended
by General Lawton for a medal of honor
w hen hi name has been reported, vol-
unteered lo set fire to the house. He
crept up, Indian fashion, through the
brush, and toon after hia departure the
fliinea broke out. Then Fortson, with a
squad of soldiers, charged the place and
attempted to climb a high stone wall,
while the natives, from a ihelteied
position above ' poured down bullets at
a close range. Tne charge succeeded.
In their experience in fighting Spaniards
these Filipino never bad encountered,
men w ho dared such seemingly certain
death, and they w ere dazed and ran like
md men But brave Ftrton fell be
lore their fire.
