LONDON, Aug. 15. Manila has fallen and the American forces are in full
So says a report from a London business house to the Westminster Gazette.
HONG KONG, Aug. 15. Delayed information from Manila is to the effect that
there has been renewed activity on the part of the Spaniards of late, due to the belief that
American resources have been exhausted and that McKinley is sueing for peace. Accord
ing to the same authority the insurgents throughout the island of Visayas are reported to
have signified their intention of joining Aguinaldo. The German cruiser Kaiaerin Au
gusta has arrived here, having left Manila yesterdaj-. She reports the situation there un
changed, but her officers are extremely reticent.
A Washougal Teacher Loses Her Life
Amid the Breakers at Seaside, on

and a teacher in Washougal schools, was

in front of Grimes' hotel when the un

WASHiKGTONAug. 15. U-itil Manila
is in closer touch with the rest of the
world than it has been during the last
three and a halt months, officials here
will be harassed by gravest anxiety re
garding the ocenrrences in that vicinity
The last news from Manila was dated
ten days ago, and deecribed the fierce
fighting of the Malate on J uly 31et,when
the Americans held their position, which
had been assaulted. Aug 3d there was
cannonading all day. The Monterey

the third expedition, and at the time

sault upon the city. It was known that
General Merritt was only awaiting these
reinforcements to demand its surrender
and to give notice of a naval bombard
ment. Under the cirourn?tances every pre
caution was taken last Friday to inform
Admiral Dewey and General Merritt
with the least possible delay of the in
formal signing of the protocol and the
suspension of hostilities.
Secretary Alger is confident that the
Spanish general will welcome tne news
and cheerfully obey the instructions ca
bled to him from Madrid to lay down
his arms, and no eerions complication
is expected to arise with the insurgents
at present. The chief alarm relates to
the sacrifice of life which may have
taken place since August 3th, and to the
possibility that Agninaldo and his sol
diers may have entered the city from a
point on the north while the Spaniards
were fighting with the Americans on
the 8outb. In that case it is feared
wholesale slaughter may have taken
place and much valuable property have
Mnch Damage, Done Seven Killed, the

stroyed. Cakby, Minn., Aug. 15. A tornado
last night struck twelve miles north of
this place, killed seven people, destroyed
many buildings, and did great damage
to crops. The entire family of Joseph

not wide in extent, but very violent.
Seven people are missing, and some of
them are supposed to be killed.

St. Louis, Mo., Aug. 15. Severe hail
and rain storms occurred in Southeastern
Iowa and Western Illinois yesterday and

IN PORTO RICO
Spaniards Receive Notice of the End of
the Fighting Fears are Expressed
that Spaniards May Terrorize the
Natives During Period of Nego
tiations. Poxce, Porto Rico, Aug. 15. On Sat
urday General Miles notified General
Macias, at San Juan, by cable of the
signing of the protocol, and today he
received from Macias an acknowledg
ment of the receipt of the notification.
General Miles also sent Captain Mick
ler, under a flag of truce, to communi
cate the intelligence to the Spanish
commander at Aibonito.
General' Miles says Aibonito would
have been-his within four days, bad not
the protocol been signed.
General Miles is uncertain whether he
will remain here during the period of
the negotiations for the peace, but the
four army columns will remain where
they are nntil the negotiations are com
pleted. Fears are expressed by the natives
that duriDg the period of the treaty ne
gotiations the Spanish troops may be
given free license within their lines to
terrorize the inhabitants. If it should
be the case, Miles says the Americans
would be powerless to interfere.

blooming for the first crop of flowers
about Decoration day. Mr. Miller then
put his scheme into effect and forced a
second growth of blossoms, with which
the bush is now covered. lie says lilac
bushes can be made to bloom twice each
