Dewey's Latest Cable Indicates a Coming
. Attack 1)Y tns Filipinos.
But the Admiral and General Otis Have
the Situation Well in Hand Forty
Dead and 150 Wounded.
Washington, Feb. 6. The following
cable was received from Admiral Dewey
"Manila, Feb. 6. The, insurgents
have attacked Manila. Tne Boston
leaves today for Iloila to relieve the Bal
timore, which will return to Manila.
Two men wounded yesterday on the
Monadnock, one ot them seriously. "
It is believed this cable left Manila
more than twelve hoars later than any
that has heretofore been published, and
the war department officials understand
from it that the insurgents have again
attacked Manila . in force and are pur
suing an aggressive policy, having
brought up their forces from the ..rear
Nobody at the department, however
feels greatly alarmed over it.

he can land 1500 seasoned riflemen if
General Otis needs them. He can also

His smaller gunboats can ascend the

The exchange of the Boston and Bal
