Lawton Resting at Candaba Will Ad
vance on Tarlae When Reinforced
Has Destroyed Many Crops.
New York, May 24. A dispatch to
the Journal and Advertiser from Manila
Bays : General Lawton is resting with
6000 men at Candaba after thirty days
of successful campaigning. He eaid to
the Journal correspondent:
"It pained me when we got into San
iBidro to see on the walla of the prison
the names of the fifteen Americans from
the Yorktown. From Colonel Ray, the
Spanish officer whom we rescued, 1
learned that one of the American prison
ers escaped from his captors. His lib
erty was short lived, for he was recap
tured. He was stretched on the ground
before his fellow-prisoners and twenty
lashes were given to him.
"We found a letter near San Isidro,
written by one of the Yorktown's crew,
saying that they were being kicked, that
their hair was being pulled out and that
they were cruelly treated in various
other ways, and praying their fellow-country-men
to hurry to their release.
The insurgents make a practice of mur
dering the Chinamen who fall into their
hands, and our men, I suppose, should
consider themselves fortunate that they
have not been similarly treated, though
the cruelties and indignities heaped on
them must be hard to bear. I would
have advanced to Tarlae, but was in
formed that I was north of the insur
gents' main forces. Hence I asked for
Kobbe's brigade. I can advance and
reach Tarlae in six days unless the pre
negotiations between the Filipinos and
our commission accomplish peace. The
whole country is nothing but intrench
"I have had during the last month
twenty-two engagements, Six of my
men have been killed in the field, two
have died from wounds, and thirty-five
have been wounded. The losses ot the
insurgents were over 400 killed, while we
have taken 1000 prisoners. I released
Spanish prisoners, established civil gov
ernment in San Miguel, Balinag and
San Isidro and safely conducted 540
Chinese refuges who were in fear for
their lives. In the section traversed,
nave destroyed zuu.uuu bushels of rice,

Another great discovery has been
made, and that too, by a lady in this
country. "Disease fastened its clutches
pon her and for seven years she with
stood its severest teets, but her vital
organs were undertermineu and death
seemed imminent. For three months
she coughed iucessantly, and could not

recovery, by purchasing ot us a bottle of
Dr. King's New Discoveiy for Consump
tion, and was so much relieved on taking
first dose, that she 6lept all night; and
with two bottles, has been absolutely
cured. Her name is Mrs. Luther Lutz."

There is only one way to cure deafness
and that is bv constitutional remedies
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the Eus
tachian Tube. When this tube is in
flamed you bave a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, and when it is en
tirely closed, Deafness is the result, and
unless the inflammation can be taken
out and this tube restored to its normal
condition, hearing will be destroyed for
ever ; nine cases out of ten are" caused
by catarrh, which is nothing bnt an in

New Yoek, May 24. A dispatch to
the Journal and Advertiser from Hong
Kong quotes Admiral Dewey as saying,
on board the Olympia:
"The courtesy of these visitors I warm
ly appreciate, but I am too much worn
out and sick to receive them. I am net
sorry to leave Manila at this time; I
could not etand the care and responsibil
ity much longer. It is vastly easier to
be under orders than issue them.
"It is responsibility that kills. Dar
ing the year that has elapsed since we
came to Manila, I have not had one sick
day until now. A year is long enough
in this climate for an oid man, and I am
glad to be permitted a rest. On this ac
count, I expect to remain in Hong Kong
two weeks. That ought to recuperate
me. My intention is to spend the time
at Victoria peak, where I hope to be
absolutely free from worry. Nobody is
more sensible of the kindness of the peo
ple who have extended me invitations,
bat I do not wish for entertainment.
My health will not Btand it at present.
Two weeks of perfect quiet at the peak

future of the Philippines. I hope to see
America possess the key to Oriental
commerce and civilization. The brains
of our great country will develope the
untold agricultural and mineral re
sources of the islands. We must never
sell them. Such an action would bring
on another great war. We will never
part with the Philippines I am sure,
and in future years the idea that any
body should have seriously suggested it
will be one of the curiosities of history.
