Murder Theory Substantiated.
Spokane, Wash., Dec. 27. There is
now scarcely a doubt that the charred
bodies found in the embers of a burned
cabin near Spokane, Saturday morning,
were the remains of Jack David and
William Banks, and that they were
murdered by Archie Carl and Oecar
King. At the inquest today the physi
cians employed to analyze the blood in
the snow in front of the cabin testified
that it was human blood. Edward Goff-
net, who delivered a bill of groceries at
the cabin Friday evening at 8 o'clock,
testified that all four men were there
and came out to meet him. This proves

Ans. As there is no difference in the

TOO LATE TO
Washington Officials Believe Otis Will
Demand the Surrender of lloilo
Into His Hands, and If the Rebels
Refuse, Enforce His Demand.
Washington, Dec. 28. There is a
great deal of anxiety in official circles
here over the recent events at lloilo.
Two official dispatches have been re
ceived by the etate and war departments
but it is impoesible to gather from them
accurate knowledge as to the conditions
there. It ia not even possible to learn
whether the insurgents or American
forces have taken the place.
This morning United States Consul
Pratt, at Singapore, cabled the state de
partment: "lloilo taken 26th. Spanish
fled to Borneo." This threw the officials
into deeper doubt than before. The
American expedition which left Manila
to go to lloilo, consisting of 2,000 troops
and the warships Baltimore and Callao,
would ecarcely have had time to reach
lloilo by the 26th. So the inference is
that the insurgents are in possession of
Color is lent to the belief from the fact
reported in one telegram that the Span
iards had retreated to a strongly forti
fied town on the island of Mindanao.
This does not agree with Pratt's state
ment that they bad fled to Borneo. The
fact that the Spaniards have retreated at
all is construed as indicating that the
town had been abandoned to the insurg
ents. Officials at the war department still
decline to make public Otis' telegram of
yesterday, but there is no doubt he is
meeting with great difficulty in bis ef
forts to secure the release of the Spanish
prisoners held by the Filipinos. It be
gins to appear clearly that a considera
ble element among Filipino leaders,
probably a majority, are disposed to use
the unfortunate prisoners as a basis for
negotiations with the United States,
naming their releaee conditional upon
certain more or lees important conces
sions demanded by them.
Just before noon a cablegram was re
ceived from Otis which confirmed the
fears of the officials as to happenings at
lloilo. Otis stated that the Americans
reached that place too late, the insurg
ents having taken possession of the city
on the 25th, thirty-nine hours prior to
Captain Potter's arrival. - Aguinaldo's
flag floats over the city.
Otis eays the Spaniards have evacuat
ed all the stations in the southern islands
except Zamboango and Mindanao, by
orders, they say, from Madrid. Otis
expects no further word from lloilo for
four days, owing to lack of cable com
munications. It is presumed Otis will
demand a surrender of lloilo into his
bands, and this demand may at once
raise the issue between the insurgents
ond our own government of the posses
sion of the islands.
The province of lloilo is set down in
official directories as having a population
of 472,000, and is the second seaport
citytn importance in the Philippine
The Spanish have chosen a strong
place for the concentration of their
troops in the town of Zamboango, which
is strongly fortified and possessed of
considerable natural strength from a de
fensive point of view. It is not doubted
they will be able to maintain themselves
for an indefinite time against the insurg
ents, presuming they . are not cut off
from obtaining supplies from the eea.

Drydock on Columbia.
Washington, Dec.27. Senator McBride
has offered an amendment to the naval
bill, which provides for the construction
of a stonedrydock on the Columbia river
and appropriates $200,000 for immediate
use in beginning the work. According
to the provisions of the amendment, the
Sock shall be 700 feet in length, and its
other dimensions shall be such as to
accommodate the largest vessels in the
regular or auxiliary navy, either existing
at the present time, or likely to be con
structed in the future. The cost of the
dock when completed is not to "exceed
$1,025,000. Provision is also made for a
board of naval officers, to be appointed
by the secretary of the navy, to select a
suitable location for the dock, $1000
being 9et aside to defray the expenses of
such a board. '

a fact that for the last 16 years he did
not sleep an hour in his bed. Over-devotion
to business was the cause of his
sleeplessness. For the past 10 years it
