Manila, June II, 8:10 p m. The Fili
pino occupation of the province of L'avite
haa been broken, and, aa the result of
the present movement, the Americana
now control the Important coast towns
of I'aranaque and Laa Tinas, while a
long line of insurgent trenches facing
our south linea haa been cleared.
The insurgents have again proved their
ability a dodgers. Between ;0OO and
UXX) warriors who seemed destined to be
captured, have disappeared, the majority
sliding away under cover of the night
after fighting the Americans all day.
Some others came to meet our troops
with protestations of friendship.
The Thirteenth Infantry lost one man
killed and six wounded ; the Ninth in
fantry one man killed and five wounded;
the Fourteenth infantry three wounded
and the First Colorado volunteer regi
ment II wounded.
Yesterday's work was the hardest our
army haa seen. The battlefield stretched
out across the entire isthmus from Lagu-
iih de Bav to the harbor. While the
troops were advancing, the army gun
boat Napidan, In the river near Taguig,
shelled the enemy, killing several of
them. The monitor Monadnock and the
gunboat Helena shelled Paranntjue and
Las Tinas all day with the full power of
The rehel sharpshooters kept in hid
ing until the American lines had passed,
and then attempted to pot stragglers
from the trees. Thanks to their poor
marksmanship, this was without result.
The whole country proved to be a suc
cession of small hills, with boggy ground
between the high, thick grass and
bushes in the hollows, which greatly
added to the dilliiMilty of the advance,
hut gave aheltir that saved many from
the enemy' bullet. Our men threw
away their blanket, coal and even
haversacks, stripping to the waist and
trusting to luck for food. Water could

At the outset the Colorado, the Ninth
infantry and the Twenty first infantry
for.:ed the line of insurgent trenches,
wheeled V the left and drove the enernr
toward the lake. During thi maiioeiiver
the Filipino in concealed trenchee on
the right opened an enfilading fire, but
the brigade, partly owing to the high
graa. had few hit. The Ninth infantry
eromed around to the right, flanking the
trenches, driving the Filipino out and
killing many of them.
The Colorado regiment advanced to
the lak. Two companies encountered
trenches on top of a knoll, where the
Filipino atood waist high above a
trench, pouring a volley upon the ad
vancing American. The Colorado
troop charged and drove theni out.
Lleou-nant-Colonel Muss waa wounded
in the arm aa he jumped into the trench,

In the meantime, General Wheaton'a
column advanced l' mile toward
Taranaque. where the Americana found
a strong trench on a ridge, out of which
they drove the Filipino by bard fight
ing. The enemy tried to flank the dis
mounted troop of the Fourth cavalry,
accompanying Major-General Law ton,
and at the same time they made their
advance, throwing a skirmish line to
flink the Fourteenth infantry. But
they were easily repulsed, the American
artillery coming to the crest of the bill
and shelling them.
About 3 o'clock in the afternoon Gen
eral Wheaton'a briitk.de. headed br
General Law ton, who, in his white cloth
ing and helmet, on a big black horse,
waa a shining mark for the enemy'
sharpshooters, circled to the south of
I -as Tina, encountering a large force of
Filipino in the (heller of the trees,
(ieneral Law ton bad a narrow escape.
In the first volley of the enemy the
horse of three of hi staff officer were
shot from nnder them. The Colorado
regiment bore the brunt of this attack,
and dispersed the Filipinos. Hardly
had they finished off that lot, when a
large force appeared Inhe rear, which
the Ninth inlantry and a part of the
Colorado regiment drove away. By
this time nearly the whole division waa
around Las Tinas. The Americans
camped for the night south of the town,
and in the midst of a heavy rain.
White 'laa Flying.
At 0 a. m. today. General Wheaton
advanced npon Las Tinas with a troop of
cavalry, the Twenty-first infantry, the
Colorado regiment, part of the Ninth
infantry, and two mountain guns, cross
ing two streams and entering the town
without firing a shot.
He then advanced upon Tarauaqne.
The women and children, and, for that
matter, many men remained in the
townB. No houses were destroyed,!
though many were torn by the shells
from the warships. Everywhere the
Americans found white flags flying.
So far as can be ascertained, the Fili
pinos' loss is about 50 killed, about 350
wounded, and 20 taken prisoners. The
whole country is networked with
trenches and the enemy scurried from
shelter to shelter.
Today long trains of commissary
wagons are carrying provisions to the
United States troops along the toad
which, only yesterday was the strong
hold of the enemy, and the natives who
yesterday were probably carrying guns
are today doffing their bats and groveling
before the Americans with effusive
greetings of welcome.

barracks in Manila tonight. As the
ragged and dusty men marched past the
Luneta the fashionable gathering place
for Manilans, they were heartily

Washington, June 11 .The war de
partment today received a report from
Major-General Otis of the military move
ment yesterday to the south of Manila
for the purpose of clearing out the rebels
in that section. It show that the move
ment waa a great success, and the
enemy' los was considerably greater
than stated in the press dispatcher.
General Otia' cablegram 1 aa follows:
"Manila, Jane II. The terrific beat
yesterday did not peimit the troops to
reach position at the hour designated .
It enabled many of the insurgents to es
cape in scattered organixition south and
westward, which they effected during
the evening and night. The movement
was great success, however. The
enemy waa disorganized and routed, and
suffered heavy lost. The troops arc
resting today at Laa Tina and Tarana

along the shore of the bay. Many insur

tion, protected by the presence of women
and children, whom they drove alone;

and 30 wounded. He port of casualties

enemy' loss is about 400.

Washington, June 11. The civilian
members of the Philippine commission
have insisted that as a beginning in the
direction of home rule, municipal gov
eminent should be inaugurated in
Manila by holding an election to select
local officers by Filipinos. Major Gen
eral Otis strongly opposed the proposi
tion, and declared that he had trouble
enough in maintaining order in the city
without holding an election. This, in
brief, is tho basis of the friction between
General Otia and the civilian members
Schurman, Worcester and Denby.
Both parties to the controversy sub
mitted their differences to the president,
and the latter has sustained General
Otis. As soon sb the decision was
cabled to the commission in Manila,
Chairman Schurman made publie bis in
tention of returning. By this decision
the president will lose the services of
Professor Schurman, who will resign
upon his return to the United States.
