by the American-China Improvement

A BANKRUPT GOVERNMENT.
Turkey Is Without Funds and Unable to Bor
row Troops Are Unpaid.
Constantinople, Nov. 26. Never

such financial straights as at the
present time. It is impossible to see
how tho expenses of the Ramazan and
Bairam, due in December and Janu
ary and involving 300,000, can bo
met. The Ottoman bank utterly re
fuses to make any moro advances and
the penury is so acute that even the
troops in many provinces are unpaid.
The consequenco is that thero have
been mutinies in several districts.

in tho Visayan gruiip. This fort was
surrounded on all sides by n preci
pice, and tho only entrance to tho
higher ground was guarded by a stock
ado, with a lino of entrenchments be
hind it. Captain Lawton sent Ser
geant McMahon and 20 men to climb
the precipico and attack tho fort in
tho rear. Sergeant MoMahon's party
accomplished their task after thrco
hours' climbing through tho thick
undergrowth. They took tho enemy
by surprise and drovo them from tho
fort. As tlio insurgents escaped, they
had to pass the remainder of Captain
Lawton 's company at a distanco of 160
yards. Here tho enemy suffered ter
rible losses. Tho insurgents defended
themselves with both cannon and
rilles. Tho cannon wero captured;
tho smaller ones wero removed, while
the larger ones wero buried. Captain
Lawton, in his report, makes special
mention of tho bravery of Sergeants
