THE DALLES, OREGON. THURSDAY. MAY 4, 1899
American Gtneral Still Effuses ta Rec
ognize the Insurgent Grant.
The Emissaries Now Admit That .They
are Representatives of Aguinaldo,
Not General Luna.
Manila, May 3.-3 :10 p. m. There
,was a conference lasting two boors to
day between Major-General E. S. Otis,
and the enroya who came here from
General Antonio Luna bearing the pro
posal for a cessation of hostilities.
General Otis adhered to his refusal to
recognize the so-called government of
the insurgents. The Filipinos now ask
for a trnce of three months to enable
Agninaldo to summon congress and con
sult with insurgent leaders on other
The question of the release of Spanish
prisoners in the hands of the Filipinos
being mentioned. Major Arguelezes,
the chief membor of the deputation,
said he considered them as being in the
- sane category with Americans, the
United States being the successor of
Spain in dominion over the island and
acquiring by treaty all Spanish rights
. and obligations.
The President Pleased With the Stand
He Has Taken Spoke Highly of
Manila, May 3. 8 p. m. The Fili
pino envoys, Major Arguelezes and
Lieutenant Bornal, have abandoned the
pretense under which they came to Gen
eral Otis, that they represented General
Luna, and today announced that they
came as representatives of Aguinaldo
himself. The two emissaries used all
the wiles of which they were capable to
secure a reply from Otis to the letter
from Senor Mabini, Agumaldo's prime
minister and minister of foreign affairs
in the dictator's cabinet, which they
presented to Otis yesterday, but Otis re
fused to make any reply, on the ground
that to do so would be equivalent to a
recognition of the so-called government
of the Filipinos. Arguelezes said Aguin
aldo knew he would be overpowered in
time, but that he would be able to con
tinue the fight for months, and that he
would do so unless he was given what
Argueleze termed peace with dignity.

Hale. On yesterday, while Captain
Wheeler with a detachment of the
Fourth cavalry was covering General
Hale's advance, he discovered a large
body of rebels at Pullian. The cavalry
opened fire, but there was no response.
Thinking the rebels wanted to sur
render, Lieutenant Bell went forward to
parley with them. The Filipinos replied
that they did not wish to surrender, but
they had been ordered to refrain from
firing during the negotiations. They
asked what Lieut. Bell wanted, and in
reply was given balf an hour in which
to retire, which they did. A Spanish
prisoner who escaped into the American
lines reports that after General Hale's
advance on Quingan 200 Filipinos were
buried, thirty-five in one trench and
twenty-seven in another. This is the
largest number of rebels that have been
killed in any engagement for. several

Washington, May 2. President Mc-
Kinley has expressed to Senator McBride
his great gratification at the position
which Governor Geer, of Oregon, took in
the matter of the return of the volunteers.
The senator took copies of The Oregonian
containing Governor Geer'a utterances
to the president, who read what was
stated with a great deal of interest, and
desired the senator to convey to the gov
ernor his hearty appreciation of the pat
riotic stand which the Oregon executive
had taken, and also bis belief that the
volunteers, upon their return, would be
proud of the poeition of the governor.
The president also took occasion to
speak very highly of. the service which
had been rendered by the volunteer
troops in the Philippines, which had ex
ceeded even bis most 'sanguine expectations.

There is only one way to cure deafness,

Deafness is caused by an inflamed con

unless the inflammation can be taken
out and this tube restored to its normal

tection of colored troops. The dynamiters
are fleeing to the hills. Their cabins
are being searched, and the town is wild

Wild Rumors Flying.
Wallace, Idaho, May 3. Wild rumors
regarding the action of the Canyon
Creek men gain evidence, even here.
Thie morning a report was current and
was believed that the body of Jack
Smith had been stolen last night. When
your correspondent heard the story he
went to the morgue and saw the body
lying there. An undertaker has charge,
waiting orders from Coroner Frank, but
be bad no idea when it would be shipped
to Wardner for the inquest. Rioters
still leave by every train. The Northern
Pacific, for Missoula, runs an extra coach
daily, going well loaded. It is claimed
that many Butte men who arrived last
week are now leaving.
The Best In the World.
We believe Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy is the best in the world. A few
weeks ago we suffered with a severe cold
and a troublesome cough, and hav'mg
read their advertisements in our own
and other papers we purchased a
bottle to see if it would effect us. It
cured us before the bottle was more than
balf used. It is the best medicine out
