FLED IN TERROR
Battle Between Spaniards and Natives
in Mindanao Fresh Negotiations
Manila, May 12. Two companies of
the Second Oregon Volunteers, and the
same number of Minnesota men, with
twenty American scouts, under Captain
Case and Berkbeimer, flanked the insur
gents at San Ildefoneo this morning and
captured the place.
The Filipinos, in terror and panic, fired
20,000 rounds of ammunition, but only
slightly wounded one ecout. One insur
gent officer was killed and six men
The insurgents retreated and are now
at San Miguel, six miles north of San
Twenty per cent of the opposing rebel
force has been killed and wounded since

Fighting; in Mindanao.
General Rios, Spain's military repre
sentative here, says the inhabitants of
Zamboanga, island of Mindanao, de
manded arms from General Lontero for
defense against the landing of the Ameri
can forces but their request was refused.
Therefore, the natives at midnight
opened fire on the Spaniards with mach
ine guns and rifles stolen from tbe former
Spanish gunboats recently sold to the
United States. The natives were re
pulsed with great loss.
Aguinaldo Not a Fighter.
Aguinaldo has not in person taken part
in a single battle so far. Aguinaldo
chafes under tbe position which General
Luna occupies. Luna is the actual head
of military operations, and simply uses
Aguinaldo as a demi-god, whose name
is to the people an incentive to lead them
oat of the wilderness of slavery, and
the feeling of the natives on the subject
hat been encouraged by cunning lies.
Aguinaldo is noiding out lor a money
settlement. He ia getting rich as tbe
war progresses. The army under bim
ia not being paid in cash. The salaries
of Filipino soldiers come out of the booty
they are able to gather in the towns they
enter. It is tbe policy of the ' retreating
army of insurgents to notify the natives
that blood-thirsty Americana are close
behind. Immediately the natives desert
their homes, and the troops plunder
with the full license of Aguinaldo. All
this is laid to the American troops. Gen
eral Luna orders all property dietroyed
and tells tbe natives that tbe Americans
being enormously rich, will pay all

that Aguinaldo desired passes for a mill
tary commission to come to Manila to
confer with the American Philippine
commissioners. General Otis replied
tnat passes wonia not De necessary, as
unarmed commissioners could enter
American lines. He would leave the
matter in General Law ton's bands.

Pleasant, Simple but Safe
Effectual Cure for It.
Catarrh of tbe stomach has long been
considered the next thing to incurable.
The usual symptons area full or bloating
seneation after eating, accompanied with
sour or watery rigings, a formation of
gases causing a pressure on the heart
and lunge, and difficult breathing; head
aches, fickle appetite, nervousness and
a genet al played out, languid feeling.
There ia often a foui taste in the month,
coated tongue and if the stomach could
be seen it would show a slimy, inflamed
The cure for this common and obsti
nate trouble ia found in a treatment
which causes tbe food to be readily,
thoroughly digested before it has time
to ferment and irritate the delicate

cure prompt and. healthy digestion is
the one necessary thing to do'and wben
normal digestion is secured the catarrhal
condition will have disappeared. ..
According to Dr. Haslanson the safest
and best treatment is to use alter each
