Clar. n.e English at the Front.
Manila, Feb. 11, 1809 Dear-Motti-t
r: I have just received the cumura and
the cartridges of film. I am more than
plud (o.get lliem. as I ufed my last film
on the buti lefield yesterday. The In
surgents started the music on the night
.f February 4th, and we have been
licking the tlevil (please excuse this
word!) out of luem ever since. 'The
Oregon regiment has been kept Inside
die vn!l nil the while. I got out on
ftionday, the Otli, aud went with the
Uiegon'ian reporter to. the front, where
we joined E Wiiiipauy of the First 'Cal
ifornia ul Ha n Pedro Macati and went
nearly to I'aijr, about 15 miles from
.Manila. WVn'ere" tiien 'six miles be
yond our lines and had to tight our
vtay.baek,, VYe lot only one mau aud
lmti'two' btfWs- wounded, one very
badly and the other s ightly. This is
till the Bunting I have . seen except
what 1 have wit itemed from the roof of
our quartern and one little scrap at a
church in (be suburbs of Paco, as the
reporter and I were on the way out.
I auitCta-ehlhe) battlefield yester
day. I saw the ground in the insunr
cuts' trenches covered with cartridge
shells two inches deep for quite a dis
tance, while where our men stood only
i handful in places could be found
Insurgents are buried every little way
niong tn thfeiK lrtftetiliHifrnts."- There
are hundreds of them, and we made
the prisoners-throw more dirt on the
half-co,eredJi'orpse8. The" stench from
them was fearful. I took a: photo of
the hill thev are buried on. I have a
tiV ruber of good views of the battlefield.'
.The bajtlfe is still going on. i Our army
'Wdoing splendidly and nb mistake. "I
heard this morning that Dave Gibbons
was killed, but it proved to be another
Uibbons. Dave is all- right. I He has
been right injthe front with the Four
teenth regulars ever since, the (war be,
gun with the insurgents and, .does fine
work. Howard' isenberg Is acting as a
iue4Mitd messenger for General Ander
son, along with seven others from the
clerks. Maltie Dukes is still at Cavlte.
Dr. Brotius is here. Mark Robinson
" and the rest are all right, so far as I
know. I have not heard from the
IMmmick boys lately. ; .
Our lol'ms been lhjhtv considering
... that we liirve killed about 6,000 insurg
ents, according to the Spanish papers
vTfcVrK. We have lost about 100 killed,
i'Vtjy"'() id about 200 wounded. . Last
evening", before dark, pur troops, about

Redi Igtob. the Oregonian cn - respond -
fill, I think should be praised for writ -
ing about our valley and manufac
tories. There is one enterprlscfohow-!
ever, he didn't mention, and trjiit Is
the flume on Phelps creek. I is 9i
miles long, with the planer at the:
mouth aud a large saw mill' a,t the:
head.- It istiwned by Davenport Bros. 1
aud is managed by Frauki D'aveiiport:
and Q. D. Wood worth. Tills enter-!
prise cut 3,250,000 feet of lumber and
2,100 cords of wood In 1898, which
brought over $20,000 into; the valley.;
The company have rebuilt five miles of
flume and a branch of two miles,whicb;
taps over twenty million, feet of fine;
timber.; They have Imllt.a new mill,'
which is running night and day, giv-i
ing employment to -pver seventy men.'
They also bave 1,600 to -2,00 cords of
wood cut and on the flume, ready to
market, which they expect to flume;
within the next thirty days. Tbey
expect to double their last year's cut,
which will bring about $44,000 into thej
valley this season, as much as the;
strawberry;- crop this flxtlijwtfe been?
in operation for the past nine years and!
has timber enough to run another nine!
years, cutting from three tosix million!
per year, who very nine repainn
the flume will last for ten years.
have labored on this flume for the past
ten years' and can; say that ftdtttirfeMv

There bas been nine saw inill&on and
