Previous Reports Attested By Dewey-The Loss
of Americans Light.
WASHINGTON. Aug, 17. The government is in re
ceipt of the. following report from the hero of Manila.
"MANILA, Aug. 13. Manila surrendered today to the
American land and naval forces, after a combined attack.
A division of the squadron shelled the forts and intrench
ments at Malate and on the south side of the city, driving
back the enemy. Our army advanced from that side at the
same time. The city surrendered about 5 o'clock. The
American flag was hoisted by Lieutenant Brumby. About
7000 prisoners were taken. The squadron had no casulties,
and none of the vessels were injured. On August 7th Mer
ritt and I formally demanded the surrender of the city,
which the governor-general refused. DEWEY."
The second dispatch from the admiral had not been
deciphered np to noon. They both were received early in
the day, and after the first one had been translated it was
laid before the president.

nuggets, which she personally, with the
assistance of her two sods, aged 11 and
13 'years respectively, dng oat of the
ground near Dawson City.
Mrs. Janaen is rather a frail-appearing
woman to undergo the hardships con
nected with -Alaska mining, yet, she
says, she stood the wok better than
many looking more robust than she.
"I arrived in Dawson July 20th, a
year ago," said she this afternoon,
"and staked out a claim. Fortunately,
I had sufficient foresight to bring with
me provisions to do me and my boys ten
months. The food was of the common

"After staking off 'my claim I was
compelled to stand off two men one
whole night, who tried to drive me
away. ' I held them at bay with a shot
gun, which 1 would have need had it
been necessary. The day following I
went into the camp, where r related my
experience. That night a posse of
twenty miners quietly guarded my
property, but the 'jumpers' did not

ermore valley, Calif., on which there is
a $1000 mortgage. Her husband died
there three years ago, and two years
ago she went 'to Juneau with her little
ones to earn enough to lift the mort
gage. There she kept a boarding bouse,
with fair success, till the strike was
made in the Klondike district.

of the hardships I endured laBt winter."
continued she, to get together my little
fortune. But now that it is over I'm
glad I had a stout heart."

She' will go' to California tomorrow
night, and will resume civilized life in
her unencumbered home. - .

to begin the designing of three battle
ships of between 13,000 and 14,000 tons

will begin between September 5th acd
10th, and in some instances a trifle later,
Tbe yield thia year will equal that of
1897 in quantity, but the Indications now
are that the quality will be more in ac

There is only one way to core deafness,
and that ia' by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the Eus
tachian Tube. When this tube is in
flamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, and when . it is ear
tirely closed,-Deafness is the result, and.
unless tbe inflammation can be taken
out and this to be restored to its normal
condition, hearing will be destroyed for
ever; nine cass out of ten are caused
by catarrh, which is nothing' bat an in
