At Least They Will Not Fight Without
Orders From Aguinaldo. Rein
forcement of Troops for Manila.
Washington, Jan. 2. Nothing more
baa been beard at the war department
from Otia since the cable of yesterday.
The situation ia irritating in the fact
that according to the experience of the
paet tew days, it ia not to be expected
that anything can be heard from Iloilo
for a day or two at least, except in the
very improbable event that the Ameri
can force baa been repulsed in ita efforts
to make a landing and has been obliged
to return straight to Manila.
It ia surmised that General Miller is
proceeding with more tact and less
rongnnesa in nis aeaungs witn me in
surgents than appeared from a first in
spection of the reports. Hia purpoee
apparently was to avoid such formal
recognition of the insurgents as might
tend to embarrass the United States
government hereafter, but at the same
time not to deal harshly with them if
they can be brought to see the rectitude
of bis intentions.
Therefore the officials are of the opin
ion that there will be no actual hostili
ties between the forces arrayed againat
General Otia and bis own, but that at
the worst the latter will retire from the
city without accepting or rejecting the
American overtures until they have
beard from Againaldo. General Otis
baa taken steps to acquaint General Mil
ler with the latest instructions from the
president, and a special messenger is
now on hia way from Manila en route to
Altbongh officials profess their strong
belief that no eerious trouble will occnr,
they have taken the precaution to expe
dite the dispatch of military reinforce
ments to the command of General Otia
in the Philippines.
Orders have been issued for the Twen
tieth regiment of infantry of Ft. Leav
enworth to time its departure so aa to
be in San Francisco by the 17th inst.
in order to ecwbark on the military
transport being fitted out to aail for Ma

Three other regiments are alao un
der orders to proceed to Manila by way
of the Mediterranean and Suez canal.
These are the Fourth, Twelfth and Sev
enteenth infantry. They will make the
trip in the new transports Mobile and
Mohawk, and unless present plana mis
carry they will embark at New York on
the 17th inst. General Law ton will ac

erty, crawled into one of the etopea in

hin under abont 1000 pounds of quartz

The yellow river floods have destroyed
the crops and famine has resulted.
Thousands of the natives are starving.
Thousandaof hungry and ragged refugees
are moving down the river in boats, only
to find the cities lower down closed
against the starving hordes. The gov
ernment appropriated 300,000 taels for
their relief, but less than one-fifth has
been distributed. It is claimed dishon
est officials have pocketed the balance.
A relief fund baa been started at Shang
hai. Rev. B. Craig Patterson, of the
Chian Kian mission, appeals to Ameri
can friends for aid.
A panic prevails throughout Sze-
Chuen province, China, caused by the
rehoisting of the black flag of rebellion
by the notorious outlaw Yumantze.
After offering to refrain from further de
predations and receiving a compensation
therefor from the Chinese authorities.
Yumantze has rejoined hia followers and
started a fresh anti-Catholic crusade.
His reward included 100,000 taels in sil
ver, immunity from punishment and a
captaincy in the Chinese army. The
French missionary, Fleury, remains in
Yumantze's bands and hopes of saving
bim have been abandoned.
Two Pointed Questions Answered.
Wbat ia the use of making a better
article than your competitor it you can
not get a better price for it?
Ans. As there is no difference in the
price the public will buy only the better,
so that whilo onr profits may be smaller
on a single scale they will be mncb
greater in the aggregate.
How can you get the public to know

If both articles are brought prominent

be tried and the public will very quickly
pasa judgment on them and nee only the

Men Were Fnally Rescued From the
Shaft Property Loss Estimated at
Only a Few Thousands.
Cablinville, 111., Jan. 2. Early this
morning the tripple and top works of
the Carlinville coal shaft, situated just
outside of town, took fire and burned
fiercely. There seemed from the start
no chance of saving them from total de
struction. Between seventy and eighty
men are in the mine, and, although des
perate efforts are being made in their
behalf, it is by no means certain that
they can be rescued.
The entire force .of one hundred men
went to work as usual at 7 o'clock. Two
dozen of tbem, who were worktng in the
east leads of the mine, discovered that
the air waa foul, and escaped to the top,
except Jack Minck and his aon, Archie.
Aa yet they have not reached the top.
The other miners, working in the west
part of the abaft are etill underneath
The air shaft is located near the burn
ing plant, and, should the fire reach it,
there will be no hope of saving the men
still under ground. When the flames
started, the engine quickly reversed the
air, forcing it down the safety air Bhaft
through the main leads of the mine and
up the main entrance, thus preventing
the fire so far from entering the mine,
but it will be several hours before the
men's safety can be assured.
Fortunately a stiff breeze is blowing
from the.Bouth, which aids in saving the
engines which furnish air to the im
prisoned miners. Several thousand
spectators are watching the conflagra
gration, among them wives, sisters and
children of the men below, who are
Later After herculean efforts on the
part of the mine managers and those of
the miners who escaped at the first
alarm,, the entombed miners are all re
leased from their perilous position. '. The
