ture Under Cover of the Night.
Manila, June 13. The Filipino oc
cupation of the province of Cavite has
been broken, and, as the result of the
present movement, the Americans now
control the impoitant coast towns of
Paranaque and Las Pinas, while a long
line of insurgent trendies facing our
Bouth lines has been cleared.
, The insurgents have again proved
their ability as dodgers. Between
3,000 and 4,000 warriors who seemed
destined to be captured, have dis
appeared, the majority sliding away
under cover oi the night after fighting
the Americans all day. . Some others
came to meet our troops with protesta
tions of frienship.
The Thirteenth infantry lost one man
killed and six wounded; the Ninth in
fantry one man killed and five wound
ed; the Fourteenth infantry three
wounded and the First Colorado volun
teer regiment 11 wounded.
Yesterday's work was the hardest our
army has r seen. The battlefield
stretched out across the entire isthmus
from Laguna de Bay to the harbor.
While the troops were advancing, the
army gunboat Napidan, in the rivet
near Taguig, shelled the enemy, killing
several of them. The monitor Monad
nock and the gunboat Helena shelled
Paranaque and Las Pinas all day with
the full power of their batteries.
The rebel sharpshooters kept in hid
ing until the American lines : had
passed, and then, attempted to pot
stragglers from the trees. . Thanks to
their poor marksmanship, this was
without result. The whole country
proved to be a succession of small hills,
with boggy ground between the high,
thick grass and bushes in the hollows,
which greatly added to the difficulty of
the advance, but gave shelter that saved
many from the enemy's bullets. Our
men threw away their blankets, coats
and even haversacks, stripping to the
waist and trusting to luck for food.
Water could not be obtained, and there
was much discomfort after the canteens
were emptied. . :
White Flags Flying.
At 6 A. M. todav, General Wheaton
advanced upon Las Pinas with a troop
of cavalry, the Twenty-first infantry,
the Colorado regiment, part of , the
Ninth . infantry, and two mountain
guns, crossing two streams and entering
the town without firing a shot. ,
He then advanced upon Paranaque.
The women and ohildren, and, for that
matter, many men ; remained in the
towns. No houses were destroyed,
though many were torn by the shells
from the warships. Everywhere the
Americans found white flags flying.
So far as can be ascertained, the Fili
pions loss is about 50 killed, about
850 wounded, and 20 taken prisoners.
The whole oountrv ia networked with
trenches and the enemy scurried from
shelter to shelter."' : .
- Today long trains of commissary
wagons are carrying provisions to the
United States troops along the road
which only yesterday was the strong
hold of the enemy, and the natives who
yesterday weie probably carrying guns
are today doffing their hats and grovel
ing before the Americans with effusive
greetings of weloome.
BIG MAN-HUNT PLANNED.
Criminals to lie Routed Out of
Casper, Wyo., June 13. The Hole
In -the-Wall, for years the refuge of
outlaws, promises , to be cleansed of its
desperate inhabitants. The daring rob
ber band which looted the Union Pa
cific express at Rock Creek recently and
escaped to the fastn3sses of their dens
in the Hole-in-the-Wall, in spite of
the fact that they were closely pursued
over plain and mountain, are to be sys
tematically hunted to their death. To
this purpose the several railway man
agers with interests in this state are
organizing posses, and the outlaws will
be given no rest. It is expected 200
men will be engaged in the big man
hnnt. " :'-.. ' :
The state and the express and rail
road companies have offered, an aggre
gate of $3,000 each for the heads of the
members of the band. In addition to
this head money, in event of success,
the men who are arranging for this
chase will be armed and fed by the cor
porations and big- cattle companies of
this section during the time they are
engaged. ' '

at sea and $2,975 on shore.

Sardis, Miss., June 14.; Simon
Brooks (oolored), has been lynched by
a mob of negroes near here. The crime
thus avenged was most atrocious. Sat
urday night a negress named Armis
tead, while returning from a shopping
tour to ' her home, was' assaulted by
Brooks and another negro. The woman
was outraged, her throat was cut and
she was severely beaten about the head
and her jaws tightly tied to prevent
breathing. - Hei body was then con
cealed in some rubbish. '
The woman rallied, sufficiently to
give the alarm and the names of her
assailants. Parts of the goods, taken

which was composed' entirely of . ne
groes, did its work quickly.- The white

HUNDREDS KILLED AND INJURED
New Richmond and Boardman the Ill
Fated riaces Relief Is Being Hur
ried to the Scene.
Minneapolis. June 14. A special to
the .Tribune from Stillwater, Minn.,,
says: This was a terrible night for
New Richmond, the village being al
most wiped out of existence by one of
the most severe cyclones that ever
visited that locality. It carried ruin
and death in its path, and at this hour
it is impossible to give even a partial
list of those seriously injured. It is
thought many are dead.
The news ot the disaster was brought
bote by J. A. Carroll, a traveing man
from Portage, Wis., who was staying
at the Nicollte house,, in New Rich
mond, when the cyclone struck. He
saw the funnel-shaped cloud as it came
up the principal street, and took refuge
in the basement of the hotel, which
was completely wrecked, together with
every other business house in the oity.
In the terrible sheets of rain follow
ing the oyolone, Mr. Carroll and his
comrades succeeded in recovering the
proprietor, Charles McKennon, wife
and one child from the debris, and
they also removed the laundry girl,
who was probably fatally injured.
They also removed two men named
Barrett and Newall, who were very
severely injured. Mr. Carroll drove
to Stillwater by team for relief, and
the train, with doctors, will leave here
at 12:15 A. M.
Mr. Carroll further says that fire fol
lowed the cyclone, and what was left
is being consumed by fire. Many peo
ple are doubtless killed, and the dam
age will run into hundreds of thou
sands of dollars.' ' .

One of the most terrifio cyclones
ever witnessed by the citizens of Hud
son passed through the country about
6:30 P. M. It formed in a waterspout
four miles south of Hudson on Lake St.
Croix. It was witnessed by hundreds
of people, and seemed . to follow the
lake, and to be making directly for the

and crossed the country. It was about
20 rods wide and destroyed everything
