AMERICAN ÏR00P8 ADWE Occupied Quingua After a Sharp Engagement. REBELS DRIVEN FROMATRENCH Col. J. M. Btotienburf, of the Nebrnaka K«(imeut> Killed While Leading a Charge—Lieut* Sisson Alsu Killed. Manila, April 25. — Four men of the Nebraska regiment, including Colonel Stotsenburg, Lieutenant Sisson, and three men of the Fourth cavalry, were killed, and 44 wounded in an engage ment at Quingua. The Filipinos re treated with small loss. The engagement developed ir.to a dis astrous, though successful, tight. The insurgents had a horseshoe trench, about a mile long, encircling a rice field on the edge of a wood. Major Bell, with 40 cavalrymen, en countered a strong outpost. One of his men was killed and five were wounded by a volley. The Americans retired, carrying their wounded under fire and with great difficulty, being closely pur sued, fog enabling the enemy to creep up to them. Two men who were carry ing a comrade were shot in the arms, but they continued with their burden. Major Bell sent for reinforcements to rescue the body of the killed cavalry man, and a battalion of the Nebraska regiment, under Major Mufford, ar rived and advanced until checked by volleys from the enemy’s trenches. The Americans lav about 800 yards from the trenches behind rice furrows under fire, for two hours. Several men were sunstruck, one dying from the effects of the heat as they lay there waiting for the artillery to come up. Finally the second battalion arrived, and then Colonel Stotsenburg, who had spent the night with his father at Ma nila, came upon the field. The men immediately recognized him and raised a cheer. Colonel Stoteenburg, deciding to charge as the cheapest way out of the difficulty, led the attack at the head of bis regiment. He fell with a bullet in the breast, dying in stantly, about 200 yards from the breastwork. Lieutenant Sisson fell with a bullet in his heart, the bullet striking him near the picture of a girl, suspended by a ribbon from h is neck. In the meantime the artillery had arrived and shelled the trenches. The Filipinos stood until the Nebraska troops were right on the trem/lies, and then they bolted to the second line of the trenches, a mile back. The Nebraska regiment lost two pri vates and had many wounded, includ ing two lieutenants. The Iowa regi ment had sevetal wounded. The Utah regiment had one officer and thiee men wounded. Thirteen dead Filipinos were found in the trenches. Their loss was comparatively small on account of their safe shelter. The Americans carried the second trench with email loss, and are holding the town tonight. Colonel Stoteenburg had won a repu tation as one of the biavest fighters in the army. He always led his regiment and had achieved remarkable popular ity with hie men since the war began, although, during his first colonelcy, the volunteers who were not used to the rigid discipline of the regular troops thought him a hard officer. The loss of the Nebraska regiment in the campaign is die greatest sustained by any regiment, and today’s disaster has greatly saddened officers and men, who promise to take tiorce vengeance in the next fight.

FOUL Astoria, Or., April 26.—That the en tire party that left Seaside April 7 on a timber cruise are dead is an assured fact as the bodies of three have al ready been found and search is still in progress for the fourth, who was the oldest and weakest member of the party. As soon as S. IL Doty’s body was found and brought into Seaside Satur day afternoon, Louis Chance, known as “Indian Louie,” and John Burke were engaged to start out in search of the re mainder of the party, who consisted of P. E. Heikman, a civil engineer, of this city; W. T. Radir. a timber lo cator, of Portland, and A. J. Cloutrie, of Seaside, who accompanied the party as a guide, as he was thoroughly famil iar with that section of the country. This afternoon “Indian Louie” re turned with the infer illation that they had found the bodies of Heikman aud Radir at the foot of Sugar Loaf moun tain, some distance apart, and about three miles from where Doty’s body was found. “Indian Louie” returned to give the news, while Burke continued to search for the body of Cloutrie. Ac cording to information received, there were no marks of violence on the bodies, and the cause of their death can at the present time only be sur mised. but it is generally supposed that it was the result of eating poisoned canned meat or vegetables. A party started out from Seaside this afternoon to bring back the bodies, but it may be several days before they will arrive, as it is about 15 miles throuuh a very rough country. Some writing may be found on one of the bodies that may explain the cause cf the cruisers’ deaths, but it now appears quite cer tain that they had been dead longer than at first supposed. The last entry in the field notes found on Doty were dated April 9, only two days after the patty had started out from Seaside. P. E. Heikmann was 39 years of age, and a native of Germany. His father is now a major in the German army. He came to this country about 20 years ago, and was employed for sev eral years in the engineering depart ment of the Union Pacific at Omaha. A. J. Cloutrie was 65 years of age. He came to this county from Portland about four years ago, and lived at Sea side during most of the time. “Iridian Louie” today made the fol lowing statement: “My opinion is that Cloutrie got hurt in some way, and they all stayed with him until he died, meantime exhausting all their provisions, matches, etc. After Cloutrie’s death they evidently were lost, and wandered about seeking to recover their bearings. Whether the supposition that the death of any or all of the party was due to poisoning from cairned meats or other edibles is true, there was noth ing in their surroundings to indicate. Cloutrie was one of the most practical woodsmen in this section of the coun try. According to the notes found on Doty's body, the party was tlnough its work and on its wav out.” ARMY MacArthur’s AT Hay Express«« Disapproval. Berlin, April 26. —It is announced in a semi-official note today that United States Secretary of State John Hay has expressed to the German am bassador his strong disapproval of the conduct of Captain Coghlan, of the cruiser Raleigh. FORTY-EIGHT WARSHIPS. Uncle Sain’s Navy Growing at a Rapid Rate. New York. April 26.—A special to the Tribune from Washington says: The completion within a few months of two great battle-ships, the Kearsarge and Kentucky, serves to call attention to the remarkable rate at which the American navy is growing at the pres ent time. Except among naval offi cers. who watch this progress, few per sons realize that 48 warships are now under construction for the United States, involving expeditures under ex isting contracts aggregating $33,336,- 600 for hulls and machinery alone These vessels, when equipped ready for sea. will have cost over $50,000,- 000. Eight of them are first-class sea going battle-ships, as good as any afloat, without taking into account the superiority of the gunners, machinists and officers to man them. Sixteen are torpedo-boat destroyers, averaging 29 knots speed; four are heavy harbor defense monitors; one is a sister cruis er to the New Orleans, and 18 are tor pedo-boats. HAS AN AXE TO GRIND. John Bull Will Not Abrogate Clayton* Bulwer Treaty for Nothing. New York, April 26.—A special to the Herald from Washington says: Al though willing to abrogate the Clayton- Bulwer treaty, Great Britain has made it plain to the United States that she expects an equivalent in return for her action. This equivalent will be exact ed during the negotiations of the American-Canadian commission, which is to resume sessions in Washington in August next. It is because of a demand for con cessions equal in value to that which will he given to the United States ii* the abrogation of the Clayton-Bulwer treaty that the negotiations have not progressed with the promptness at first expected. It is apparent to the officials now that Great Britain proposes to use the proposition to abrogate the treaty to further its own aims in connection with the settlement of the Alaskan boundary and reciprocity questions. Great Britain is determined to make every effort to secure entry to trie Northwest Territory through Alaska, and the United States is not willing to give it to her. It may be, therefore, that she will suggest that in return for such an outlet she will surrender all her rights in the Nicaraguan canal. President McKinley and Secretary Hay have determined not to enter into any negotiations with either Costa Rica or Nicaragua respecting the Nic aragua canal until the new isthmian canal commission has submitted its re port. The Nicaragua canal commission will report within a short time, and the president will then announce the personnel of the isthmian commission. The new commission will then proceed to Panama and later to Nicaragua, and it is the expectation of the president that it will submit its re|>ort in time for consideration early in the next ses sion of congress.
