Last Monday's mail brought bushels of
letters from the boys in far off Manila,
and anxious parents and friends were re
lieved to know that those in whom . they
bave a special interest were well at least
when the letters were written. Nearly
all the volunteers from Corvallis sent two
or three letters each, and they all. con
tained interesting and exciting news.
These communications from the soldiers
contain more of the details of happenings
in the Philippines than can be found in
the articles of paid correspondents, and
they are more entertaining from the fact
that they contain more of local interest.
We take pleasureJh - publishing the fol"
lowing extracts from soldier boy epistles ;
Mort Cockrell-has Jjiis to'sav under
date of Feb. 8th, in a .'letter to his
mother:, "Saturday night.V the 4th,
about 10 O'clock, firing commenced in the
vicinity of Molois, at 10:30 it became
general all along our lines and .then
Dewey began to pump projectiles into
the insurgents. It was the first battle
I ever heard, and to tell the truth, It was
inspiring.-- As soon as the firing com
menced we got up and dressed, filled our
canteens and haversacks, and waited for
the call to arms which we knew was com
ing. At 10:30 the call came, and-you
never saw a cooler lot of boys than ours.
We (ell in, counted lours, then came
'Fours left, March 1' and we marched out
into the street to tnke our position in the
battalion. '"''"
"After forming, we marched out into
the street and waited anxiously for the
order to. move. - A little after- midnight
we came back into quarters and laid
down, but could not sleep.. Soon another
call came and we went out again,. andi
waited -this time till daylight,A"when"We
were called in for breakfast, - and , went
back: w hen it was ' finished. The com-,
pany .rwent to. guard" a bridge, on the
outskirts' of the city, but 1 did not go

You can imagine-how it feels to be shut

battle that has raged four days without
stop. The insurgente i fired" upon :tbe
Nebraskas first, "then upon the Colorados
and finally upon the line. The boys
held their fire . pretty,, well, nntil day
light, when they , broke loose and shot
the insurgents to pieces. They , made
charge after charge, driving the 'niggers'
back, and- at each charge--they killed
enough of the black devils to load every
bull cart in Manila. Abd then Dewey
got the range, and opened upon the
enemy with ' big guns and. little guns.
Each shell would, hind squarely among
the insurgents and mow them down like
grass before a scythe. The fire con
tinued all day the 5th, but stopped about
dark, the rebels retreating rapidly. . Our
troops "destroy or burn everything they
come ' across, and show ' no quarter.
That's the only way to fight tnese can
nibals. The prisons are all fnll of insur
gents now, and there is no more' room,
so General Otis has ordered our men to
take no more prisoners unless they bring
their guns with them. All .the insur
gents captured, .so far,- have - thrown
their guns -away when they saw there
was no hope for them, and come into
our lines saying. 'Much Omega' (a good
friend ) and of course there was nothing
to do; but' take them. " Hereafter" tney
will probably be shot unless they bring
their . gmfs. . Their loss has averaged
about 40 or 50 to the. reniment, and our
troops'; the 14th imantry (regulars) have
suffered the most.' - - - ' e '
Mort Vrote" again . February ' 11th:
"The Americans," he says, "are driving
the insurgents back all along the line,
killing thd poor 'niggers' like flies. It is
reported, unolficially,. that . Aguinaldo
is at the head of his army now,- directing
every movement.'.; If he is, you may bet
he will not last long, for these old Spring
fields of ours, and - the Krag-Jorgensens
of the regulars, shoot wonderfully accu
rate in the hands of American soldiers.
The insurgents are unbkilled in the use
of fire arms. They simply waste am mu
nition. . Of course, in so much firing,
home of our bo. 8 get struck, hut it is not
like fighting men of youi equal; but it
is hard to find the equal- of American
soldiers. The insurgents -seem to have
an unlimited supply of Mauser am muni
tion 1 think Germany has been smug
gling arms and ammunition over here
all the time. -Germany needs a good
drubbing and she will get it f she
meddles any more. . Dewey .keeps a
sharp lookout on the German ships in
the harbor to see that :- they make no
strange maneuvers. , Our boys -slip out
and go to the trenches once in a while.
Some of them are-, staying out there.
Of course, we are all anxious to get into
the scrap,, bu it looks like we wiir
have to stay here in the city indefinitely.
Our work here is pret ty hard ; on gnard
duty every day, and when we' do sleep
in quarters, it is with pur clothes .on,
expecting a call to arms at any time.
The : Spanish , inhabitants are leaving
Manila pretty fast. The Chinese are
very friendly toward us for they know
they w ill lose their scalps if the insur
gents get ints the city. One Chinaman,
in particular, sent a lot of bread out to
the boys in the trenches. , The, boy at
the front have pretty good rations; fresh
beef nearly every day, and with what
chickens . and ducks they catch, live
pretty high."
Under date of February 6th and 12th,
Brady Burnett, who is a corporal in Co.
M, writes of the stirring events at Manila.
"Trouble had been expected for several
days. ' Saturday night at 8:45 p.- m
Feb. 4th, shots were, plainly" heard and
soon 'we 'could tell a battle was on'. . We
were soon ready and a 'Call to arms' was

one or two churches were burned by

'"AH the boys are crazy to fight. Span
iards are very' much pleased and glad
that they surrendered. We have the na
tives driven way back and no telling how
many have been killed. In some places
they were literally slaughtered especially
by the gun boats. . To give you some idea
of the amount of ehootinu I saw one train
of hull carts with 280,000 rounds of shells
for the volunteers, and there has been a
lot of artillery firing. ' ''' ,; "-'-
"It isptir-drity to guard the old town or

we will have a hot time. The Tennessee
boys did great , work, in fact all the

them. Of course some of our brave boys
'have bit the dust,' but this is the fortune
of war. :The v supposed that we would
fight like the Spaniards ; fire a few dozen

son when she appeared in the first num
ber, ''Without Tuee," and the enthusi
asm' Widen she created, increased untij
the final 'eh co re, which received the most
applause all:1 lief voice is rich and
full, and its scope is remarkable'. 'A slight
nervousness', in '.'the earlier: numbers,
marred their Vehditlbn, but as this w ore
away and confidence returned,' the power
and clearness of her notes captivated her
auditors. . That cultivation is necessary,
was ; quite-noticeable, but that . all the
natural qualities of voice to make an artit t

mittedby the most critieal.;,; She Was as

Miss Smith,1 Miss Spaugler and the Igno

were delightful. Possessed of a voice ot
wonderful sweetness, rich in quality, and
a modest disposition, her efforts are al
ways above" advdrse Criticisrn.Ar ' w

Sht Dislocate slier Keck In a Fall Down a
.7, Stairway Daring tne Ni;lit-."j" j
;i On Saturday morning last a'sad and
fatal accident occurred by which the
wife of Rev , B.. i.. Kelly jiost . henlife.
air. lveny was awaKenea about a o'clocK
ia the moming by a loud noise and find
ing his wife missing he -rushed down
stairs, where he found hermit the foot of
tue stairway unconscious and bleeding
from, an ugly gash in the forehead. He
aroused the neighbors and sent for
physicians, who came promptly,, but all
their efforts were in vain, and : Mrs.
Kelly passed away in about an hour and
a half after the accident. Her neck was
broken and her skull fractured by the
fall, and how it occurred will always re
main a mystery,- Once, before, during
her life .Mrs. Kelly .was known to have
walked in . her sleep, and it is supposed
that this -must - have been the second
time, although, accidents seldom happen
to sleepwalkers. ' '--'
Mr". Kelly came to Corvallis about four
years ago as pastor of "the". United Evan
gelical church and during that time has
succeeded in making a f riend of every
one who knovs him, and the sympathy
of the entire community goes out to him
and his little motherless family of three
children, the eldest of- whom is but' six
years of age. '-
Mrs. Kelly was an estimable woman,
beloved by everybody.- She was the
daughter of J. B. Dav; of Salem, and the
body was taken to Salem on the "steamer
Ruth on Monday last and 'buried in the
Rural cemetery there. Funeral services
were' held at Calvary United Evangelical
church in this city last Sunday at 2:30
p.m. Rev. C. C. Poling, of Portland,
preached the funeral sermon, and was
assisted in the services by the ministers
of the. Corvallis churches. Not half of
those-who attended could get into the
building, as nearly all the townspeople
were" there Sympathy is all we can
offer to the living, and the dead are be
yond its need, but it must be a source of
comfort to 'Mr. Kelly to know that he
has the sympathy of everyone who knows
him, in h'fcjtreat distress.- - :, .

Bo Muck. for
f A partial victory was won in the house
of representatives for Yaquina bay, when
it -was- decided", to leave -;th fate of -the
future appropriations to aboard of engi
neers' at now behooves every mend of
Yaqnina, -to present to this board every
bit of evidence availabte tending to prove
the great necessity for 'improvement tf
the harbor, and the. vast benefit-tbat
will 'accrue to -the-farmers of the Wil
lamette '-Valley and tne people of the
state generally, by so doing. That 6r-
3ized effort along this line will be pro
ductive of great re&uYi&-i most probable.
The Salem Statesman makes the follow
ing very excellent suggestions along this
line: ' ' ' 1 ' ' " "
v.".The. people of the Willamette vallley
have an important duty to perform in
the saving of the project for the improve
ment of the Yaquina harbor. -
"As a net result of the work Of the
commerce committee ' of the ' United
States senate in connection :;with the
river and harbor' bill as it left the house,
the clause repealing the' boat railway
law was eliminated; the section repeal-
ng the. Yaquina conntract law, was modi
fied, , and $428,000 cash, appropriaeions
were added to the Snake river', item,
Authority was also obtained in the bill
for two very 3 important ' urveys one
for a 23-foot , channel at low water, from
Portland to -Astoria, and ' the other to
deepen the water-over Columbia bar1 to
4; feet; Eachrpodu"cerv'6t Wh'eat'and
other articles' ' seeking '"foreign markets
either 'in ' Eastern "or ' Western ' Oregon 1"
will' be'; benefitted by thesev projects, to
deepen' the channels.; , 'j '
'In "view of 'the bitter opposition of
the house of representatives to any im
provement at all at Yaquina bay , it was
a victory lo have the matter referred to
the arbitrament of a" board of engineers."
It how depends very, much on the peo-;
pie .01 tne , vvniameue . ,vaiiey. as ,,to
whether that board pfr engineer,,, when
appointed shall be duly ..advised . of the
commercial importance, of Yaquina bay
improvement. The .senate committee
saved to them-the opportunity to make
a showing that will ih t rn save the pro-'
jei;t,' but it rests with the people them
selves to show"' the board of "-engineers,
how ' im portaut the improvement " la. 'or
wiU.be. . . ... , . .....
"We hope there - will be an. 'organized
movement, all over the Willamette val
