Manila, March 13. 11 :55 a. m. At
daylight today Brigadier-General Loyd
Wheaton's divisional brigade, consisting
of the Twentieth infantry, the Twenty
Second infantry, eight companies of the
Washington volunteers, seven compan
ies of the Oregon volunteers, three
troops of the Fourth cavalry and a
mounted battery of the Sixth artillery,
was drawn up on a ridge behind San
Pedro Macati, a mile south of town.
The advance was sounded at 6:30 a. m.,
the cavalrv leading the column at a
smart trot acrpss the open to the right.
eventually reaching a clump command
ing the rear of Guadlupe.
Supported by the Oregon volunteers,
the advance ODened a heavy fire on the
rebels. The response waa feeble and
desultory, apparently csming from few
men in every covert. While the light
column was swinging toward the town of
Pasig, the left advanced, pouring volleys
into the bush.
A small body of rebels made a de
termined et'and at Guadalupe church,
but was unable to withstand the assault.
At 7 :30 a river gunboat started toward
PaBig. The rebels were farst encountered
ed by this vessel in the lung.e near
Guadalupe. Steaming elowly the gun
boat poured a terrific fire from her gat
ling guns into the brush. For an hour
the whirring of the rapid firing guns
alternated with the booming of the
. heavier pieces on board.
In the meantime "Scott's battery
aBhore was shelling the trenches and
driving the enemy back. The' artillery
then advanced to the ridge of bamboo
and drove a few of the enemy's sharp
shooters away with volleys from their
carbines. -The artillery then advanced
' and met with no opposition. ..
The infantry had been -sent 'forward
in extended order, the Washington regi
tnent resting on the bank of the river
each regiment deploying on reaching its
station and furnishing its own support
The entire column wheeled toward the
river, driving the enemy, toward his
supports and then advancing on Gnada
' lupe. The artillery moved to a ridge
" commanding Pasig and Pateros. By thi
time the enemy was in full flight along
a line over a mile long, apd the firing
' was discontinued temporarily, in order
to give the troops a rest before making
'the attack on Pasig. The enemy's loss
was believed to be severe, but only
eizht Americans were wounded at this
stage of the engagement. . It was rain
After a short rest. General Wbeaton
resumed the attack on Pasig. Scott'
battery, supported by two companies of
'the Twentieth regiment, advanced on
Guadalupe by the road along the river
bank, the remainder of the Twentieth
regiment and the Twenty-second regi
ment following with the reserve of Ore
gon volunteers. -
At 11 :30 a. m. the column came
contact with the enemy, and the gunboat
steamed to the firing line and cleared the
jungle on both sides while the battery
took up a position on the bluff at the
right. The first shot from toe American
field pieces at 1200 yards'range dislodged
ed a gun of the enemy at Pasig. After
the town had been shelled the Twentieth
regiment lined up on the bluff and the
Twenty-second took up a position on the
left of the place, with the cavalry in the
center, whereupon the enemy retreated
to the town. The gunboat then . moved
into a bend opposite, and a hot fire on
the rebel position was maintained along
the whole American line until 2 :20 p. m.,
when preparations were made for the
At 3 p. m. our gunboat started in pur
suit of. the enemy's armed tug, chasing
her to the lake..
At 3:30 p. m. a large body ot the
enemy was dieeovered working around
the right flank, and the Twentieth regi
ment was moved to a commanding ridge.
The rebels were met opposite Pateros,
but bolted. Thirty of the rebels were
illed, sixteen more taken prisoners, and
the Americans lost six. men wounded.
The whole American line bivouacked
at 5 o'clock. . ..
About 700 rebels were reported ' to be

' Not expected that you should buy. Like to have people
come even if its just to look around, and thereiare lots
of pretty things to see. Spring weather is almost due
and suitable wearables are coming in daily shipments.
Last week brought us another invoice of. Children's Nov

a goodly number purchased. Prices to $7.50 a suit.
New Yobk, March 12. A dispatch to
the Herald from Washington says : A
determined though unofficial effort is
being made to" secure the exercise by
the' United States of its 0d offices in
behalf of China. The . matter has not
yet been brought-officially to the atten
tion of Secretary Hay, but it i& under
stood that be is aware of the wishes of
certain interested- persons, -and the ad
vantage, from their point of view, which
would accrue to this governmest in case
of such action. '
It is untrue that an appeal has been
made to this government to make any
representations to foreign governments
to prevent them' from seizing Chinese
territory. , What Is desired is. that this
government shall, through its minister
in Peking, inform the empress dowager
of the dangerous peeition China occupies
and having done 'this, make a public
declaration that ibe commericial in
terests of the United Sates make it nec
essary that no further leases of Chinese
coast territory be granted.
It is extremely, improbable, however,
that the government will consent to take
such action.' ' -
How to PrtTcnt Pneumonia.
You are perhaps aware that pneu
monia always results, from a cold or from
an attack of La Grippe- During 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 apy 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.

New York, March 13. A dispatch to
the Tribune from Washington eays:
News from Havana of the Cuban as
sembly's action in deposing Maxim Go
mez fjjom command of the army will
cause no change iji the administration's
policy. The American military author
ities in Cuba will continue to recognize
Gomez and to deal with him. It is not
believed the turmoil which has been
created temporarily will make necessary
any change in the plans for the with
drawal of the volunteers, though if the
devevopments seem to require it, the
plans will be modified?
The intention was to have all the vol
unteers out of Cuba by April 15.. Per

that the transports should be available,
so that there would be no delay in cm
