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 their batteries. 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 not he obtained, and there waa mm h diacomlort after the canteen were emptied. 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, furral I.airtoa Targnt. 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. The Colorado regiment returned to barracks in Manila tonight. As the ragged and dusty men marched past the Luneta the fashionable gathering place for Manilans, they were heartily cheered. aoirriivrAKO movkmkmt a stccr.H Filipino Fnrna KooUd and Hadlf IMs orsjanUxif . 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 'ue. The navy did excellent execution along the shore of the bay. Many insur gent detainment retired in thai direc tion, protected by the presence of women and children, whom they drove alone; with them. Our los waa four killed and 30 wounded. He port of casualties later. A conservative estimate of the enemy' loss is about 400. "OTia." Manila, Jane U 8:15 a. m. Before dark last night (he Fourteenth infantry wain the Zapote river, charged and car ried the trenches, a heavy fusilade of ar tillery preparing the way and covering the crossing. The insurgents broke for the woo Is before the Fourteenth reached them. Aliuoit at the same time the Ninth and Twelfth crossed a bar of the sea and came opon their left flank at a point where a body of marines, with Maxim guns, landed under protection of the hip' batteries, fired upon the enemy's left ear with a demoralizing effect. The Twenty-first crossed the river by the bridge aa soon as it could be mended. Sixty-five dead Filipinos were found in the trenches, inoet of them shot through the head. Several five-inch smooth-bore guns were captured with ammunition marked "United States navy-yard." Alter crossing the river, the troops were withdrawn with the exception of the Ninth and Twenty first, these regi ments being left with four guns to guard the bridge. As they were being formed into com panies, the insurgents commenced to fire Toilers from the bamboo jungle, 300 yards away. The regiments formed into line rapidly and coolly, through under fire, and cheering, rushed to the woods, driving the enemy a mile away, the Fili pinos disputing every foot. The Fourteenth encamped across the . river, the men caring for many of the Filipino wounded. Eiitht prisoners were captured. The majority of the Filipinos wore red uniform. The American loss yesterday was nine killed and 30 wounded. KF.iL ESTATb TB1XSFEBS. Furnished Every Week by the Clacks, maa Abstract & Trust Company. WHY SCIiritMAN 19 LEAVING. Hla Plan for noma Itul proved. Waa Not Ap 200 1 300 1 1 000 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.
