Manila, Feb. 7. General Otia aa tbia
dispatch is sent ia in fall control of the
eitnation within a radina of nine miles
of Manila. The American lines extend
to Malabon on the north and to Par
anque on the south, fully twenty-five
miles. While a few detached bodies of
Filipinos offer disultory opposition, the
main body is in full retreat and utterly
routed. Of the hordea of troops origin
ally drawn np in battle array against
the Americans, fully one-third are al
ready incapacitated and the rest are
scattered in every direction.
The Americans now have a steam car
line to Malabon, and 600 marines with
four Maxims have been landed from the
fleet, on the beach north ot the city.
Among the important points captured
was a strong embrasured earthwork in
eight of Caloocan.
There was considerable firing from the
upper' windows of houses in the native
quarter of the city laBt night, but no
casualties have been reported as a result
The signal corps was compelled to run
lines along the firing line during the
fighting, and consequently there were
freqnent interruptions in communica
tion, owing to the cutting of wires, and
' the signal men were ordered to kill
without hesitation anyone who attempt
ed to interfere with the lines!
American Losses 250; Insurgents, 4000.
.Washington, Feb. 7. The. war de
partment has received the following dis
patch from Otis :
Manila, Feb. 7, The insurgent army
concentrated around Manila from Luzon
province, numbers over 20,000 men pos
sessing several quick-firing and Krnpp
field guns. A good portion of the enemy
are armed with Mauser's latest pattern
guns. Two Krnpps and a. great many
rifles were captured. Insnrgents fired a
great quantity of ammunition. Quite a
number of Spanish soldiers are in the
insurgent service, and these served the
The insurgents constructed a " strong
intrenchment near our lines, mostly in
bamboo thickets. These our men charged
killing or capturing many of the "enemy.
Our casualties probably aggregate 250.
Full reports today.
The casualties of - the insurgents are
very heavy. Have buried some 500 of
their dead and hold 500 prisoners. Their
losses in killed, wounded and prisoners
will probably aggregate 4000.
We took the waterworks pumping sta
tion yesterday, eix miles out, after a
considerable skirmish with the enemy,
which made no stand. Tha pumps that
were damaged will be working within a
week. Have a number of condensers
set np in the city, which furnish good
water. The troops are in excellent spir
its. Quiet prevails.
Americans Caring for the Dead.
Manila, Feb. 7. The terrible loss of
the rebels may be gathered from the fact
that sixteen of them were buried in one
lice field Monday near Pasas, and eighty -seven

execution among the rebels, -sweeping
both banks of the river with the gatling
guns and heavier battery. Hundreds of
the Filipinos undoubtedly crawled into
the canebrakea and died there.
The Americana are working nobly in
their efforts to find the wounded, and
are bringing hundreds of suffering rebels
to the hospitals for treatment. The na
tives are unable to understand the hu
mane motives which prompt the victors
to succor the wounded of the enemy.
A correspondent of the AesociatedPress
is informed that numbers of the hospital
corps have made the startling discovery
that there are several women in male at
tire, and with hair cropped, among the
It is regarded as a significant fact that
many of the Filipino officials of this city
disappeared from Manila as soon as
hostilities commenced. Some of them
are supposed to be still hiding herd.
Hundreds of women are pouring into
Manila from all districts, and the villages
around Manila, as a rule, have been de
stroyed by the troops.
. The further the Americans extend
their lines the more the need of trans
portation increases. The American
commanders have already been com
pelled to impress horses and Vehicles on
all' eidea, to tbeinconvenience,naturally,
of rati ves and civilians.
Last night the inhabitants generally
believed a battle was raging at their own
doors. Lights were extinguished inside
dwellings and the majority of the people
were in a state of terror.

Mr. J. E. Lilly, a prominent citizen
of Hannibal, Mo., lately had a wonder
ful deliverance from a frightlul death.
In telling of it he says: "I was taken
with typhoid fever, that ran into pneu
monia. My lungs became hardened. I
was so weak I couldn't even sit np in
bed. Nothing helped me. I expected
to soon die of consumption, when I
heard of Dr. King's New Discovery.
One bottle gave great relief. I con
tinued to use it, and now am well and
strong. I can't say too mnch in its
praise." , This marvellous medicine is
the surest and quickest cure in the world
for all throat and lung trouble. Regular

"I have just recovered from the sec

Mr. J as. A. Jones, publisher of the
Leader, Mexia, Texas. "In the latter
case I need Chamberlain's Congh Rem
edy, and I think with considerable suc
cess, only being in bed a little over two
days against ten days for the former at
tack. The second attack I am satisfied
would have been equally as bad as the
first bnt for the use of this emedy as 1
had to go to bed in about six hours after
being 'struck' with it, while, in the first
case I was able to attend to business
about two" days before getting 'down.' "

" Bow to Prevent Pneumonia.
, You are perhaps aware that pneu
monia always results from a cold or from
an attack of La Grippe. Daring the
epidemic of La Grippe a few years ago
when so many cases resulted in pneu
monia, it was observed that the attack
was never followed by that disease when
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy was used.
It counteracts any tendency of a cold or
La Grippe to result in that dangerous
disease. It is the best remedy in the
world for bad colds, and La Grippe.
