Manila, April 19. 4:35 p. m. Ad-j
miral Dewey has been notified of the
disappearance of J. C. Gil more and 14
members of the crew of the "gunboat
Last Saturday the Yorktown anchored
off Baker, east coast of Luzon, 200 miles
from here, where there was . a Spanish
garrison of about 50 men, which bad
been defending: itself against several
hundred Filipinos for months pact.
Lieutenant Gil more, Ensign Stanley and
a boat's crew were sent up the river
from Baler bay to communicate with
the Spaniards. Ensign Stanley, who
landed at the mouth of the river, reports
that he heard three volleys, a bugle call
and cheers np the river, but the auto
matic gun which was part of the equip
ment of the boat was not heard.
Stanley then paddled to the Yorktown
in a canoe.
Search was made for the Yorktown's
crew, but no trace of them was found,
and the Yorktown sailed tor Iloilo, and
her commander' cabled to Admiral
Dewey. His theory is that the Filipinos
had captured or sunk the boat or that
the Spaniards had rescued the Ameri
fined proposition to build a railroad to
Goldendale. The conditions are not
made public. Hon. Joeeph Nesbitt, act
ing chairman of the committee, says the
conditions are better than expected, and
he has no doubt that Goldendale will
have a railroad in the near future. The
railway survey now in progress has not
been completed, and the company is
powerless to act in the. matter of acquir
ing the right of way, which is not one of
the conditions of the proposition.
Engineer Hammond went from here to
the Bonjoura survey party on the Big
Klickitat river, -while Mr. Lytle returned
to the Columbia Southern headquarters
at Moro, Or.
London, April 19. The Filipino junta
claims to have received a cablegram
from General Luna, commander of the
rebel forces in the Manila district, direct
from Manila, on Friday declaring that
General Law ton, "whose object was to
proceed to Baler and effect a junction
with the United States gunboat York
town," was inveigled by the tactics of
the Filipinos into "perilously extending
his line, with the result that one of his
columns, consisting of 140 officers and
men, on reaching a place called Binc-
gonam, was ambushed by a large foice
of Filipinos, that communication with
the main force was severed and that
the entire column was captured."
The Filipino advices further assert
that General Lawton, who was at La-
guna de Bay, on hearing the news, "re
tired to Manila, stating that he bad been
recalled by Otis on the ground that a
native rising in Manila was imminent."
The foregoing is said by the members
of the Filipino junta to be a separate
affair from the disappearance of a boat's
crew of the Yorktown in the vicinity of
President Ly tie's Terms Made Known
to the Committee.
Goldendale, Wash., April 18.-Tbe

Yukon is already breaking np, and is
flooded from Marsh lake up. One party
of four, headed by Stuart, of Snohomish,
went through the ice near White Horse
rapide, April 2, and were drowned, with
their dogs. While the Litkie party, now

Washington, April 19. The following
cablegram has just been received from
General Otis :
'Lawton returned from the Lake
country on the 17th inst., bringing the
captured vessels. The insurgents are
very much scattered and retreat before
our forces and await an opportunity to
attack the detachments. The better
class of the people are tired of the war
and desire peace. The enemy built their
hopes on the return of our volunteers to
the United States. Its army is much
demoralized and the loss by desertion is
lare. They will probably prosecute a
guerilla warfare, looting and burnicg
the country which it occupies. The
health and spirits of our troops are good.
The volunteers return will commence
about May 5th. They will render will
ing service until return transports are
available. The embarkation will con
tinue through June and July. Reports
from the Visayan islands continue very

Washingtox, April 18. Experts in
the signal service branch of the war de

Remarkable Care for Rheumatism.
Kenna, Jackson Co., W. Va.
About three years ago my wife bad an
attack of rheumatism which confined
her to her bed for over a month and
rendered her unable to walk a step with
out assistance, her limbs being swollen
to double their normal size. Mr. S.
Maddock insisted on my using Chamber
lain's Pain Balm. I purcbaeed a fifty-
cent bottle and used it according to the
directions and the next morning she
walked to breakfast without assistance
in any manner, and she has not had a
similar attack since. A. B. Parson. For

Snake River Fruit.
Colfax, Wash., April 18. Reports
from orchards along Snake river are that
all the peaches are killed. Orchardmen
report that but few of the trees have
bloomed, and even in such cases the
blossom does not indicate a peach.
Many of the trees have been killed
entirely to the gronnd, ruining many of
the best orchards in the county. Apri
cot will be a very poor crop. Among
the early fruits, cherries alone will yield
The Best la the World..

cured ua before the bottle was more than
half used. It is the best medicine, out
