Y AT MANILA STORY OF THE DESTRUCTION OF THE SPANISH FLEET. Our Squadron is Uninjured and Only a Pew of Our Men Are Slightly Wounded—Dewey Controls the Bay. Dj». MOlJsnBS; ALGO3STA JOWA, WEDNESDAY MAY 11« 1898, "OI.D G10RY" NOW WAVES OVJEB MANILA BAV AND CAVITE. Washington, May 8.—The state department yesterday received news from Commodore Dewey at Manila. The news came by way of Hong Kong, to which point the dispatches were carried by the dispatch boat McCulJoch. The first dispatch was as follows-: MANILA, May 1.—Tho squadron in-rived nt Manila at diiy-hrcak tills morning, immediately engaged the enemy, and destroyed tho following Spanish war Vessels: REINA CHRISTINA, Isla de Luzon and the mall boat darao were drawn, up ou!ts.'ide. Spaniards fired the first shot at L',;IC« rairds, but it was Ineffective. The American. ships formed In column line and steamed nearer, reservit ft thar fire until! within 4,000 yards. T'lu/ then passed backwards and forwar^j elx times across the Spaniards' fron-, pouring In a perfect hail of shot at.d shell. Every shot seemed 'to tell. Tlun the Americans retired for breakfast and a council of war. The Spanish ships were already in ai desperate condition. The Rana Maria Cmijstlna was riddled and one of her .steam pipes 'had burst. The Ca.'Stll.'a was also on fire-, and both were burned to the water's edge. The Don Antonio de Ulloa made a magnificent show of desperate bravery. With her colors na.lled !to heir mast, she sank with all hands. Her hull was riddled and her upper deck swept clean, but the guns on the lower deck were still fining- defiantly as the vessel sank benea'th the waters. A torpedo boa't 'tried to creep along the shore, round the offlng and attack the non-combatants Zafh-o, Nan- shan and McCulloch, but was driven ashore and shot into bits. The Mln- darao was run onto the beach, and the other smaill craft reC'Ircd behind the mole. The fight started at 5:30, was adjioiurned at 8:30 .and resumed about noon. The finishing touches wero given to Cavlte by ithe- Petrel and Con- corn. The Raleigh grounded twice In shallow water durtng the engagement. Cavite !is In u't'ter ruin and has surrendered, the gunboats have been scut- •Hed and the arsenal, was on fire and exploded, causing grealt mortality.

Tho dilspai-ity between the injury inflicted on the Spanish fleet and that sustained by tho Americans .is due to the superior guns of the, latter and the superior marksmanship at long range.

CEDAK FALLS, May c.—For three weeks past there has been committed a number of robberies, mostly petty, averaging every other night. If but one entrance was imide each night, no less would have been clone. The bold and persistent work began with the sweep of ft. L. Chase & Co.'s jewelry store, which lias continued since almost nightly. Dwellings and store buildings have been entered and relieved of their valuables, despite the fact that the city has been patrolled by ten or twelve men every night for the past two weeks. A gambling- den made up of local talent and others from Omaha and about the state was dispersed a few days ago, and the authorities thought they had dispelled the harbor of thieves, but the work las not ceased, nor has the extra patrol given up. As yet no developments have been made. It is believed the same gang has done all, including the entrance to Chase's .-jewelry store, and many believe the Chase stock was so securely done away with that it will never be heard of. The lawless work has been neatly done. Feelings of fear and determination possess those at home and those on patrol, but what will be the outcome is as mysterious now as how the work bus been carried on so successfully.

HONG KONG, May 8.—The order of battle assumed by the Spanish was with all the small craft inside Cavlte harbor sitone and timber break-waters and the larger ships crulising off Cavlte and aian'ila. No patrol was established nor was any searchlight placed at tht entrance to the bay. On Saturday night the American ships crept inside the bay without being seen until the MeCulloch's funnel emitted a spark. Then a few shots were exchanged with Correg'idor island but the fleet never stopped nor sSowed! down, opposite the city until "dawn.

CEDAB FALLS, May 9.—Mrs. Jean- nettc Ireland, residing 1 near Waterloo, was attacked by a large and ferocious bull dog-, which inflicted upon her injuries which may cause her death. Tho^dog had been long- kept in the family and was regarded as perfectly gentle, but ho made an unprovoked attack upon the woman, springing at her throat. Mrs. Ireland threw up her arms to ward off the attack, and •o probably saved her life, though her arms were so terribly lacerated that the flesh hangs in shreds and both will doubtless have to be amputated. Other severe wounds were also inflicted on the woman's breast and shoulders. Mrs. Ireland succeeded in so pluckily fighting for her life that the dog was at last wearied and left her, and the woman succeeded in reaching a neighboring farm, when she fainted from exhaustion and loss of blood. The physician states she is in a precarious condition, with the chances all against herrecovery. HON. J. FRED MEYERS DEAD. Proportion of Offlccrg Fall to Meet Physical Requirements. DKS MOINES, May 0.—A sensation developed at Camp McKinley when it became known that nine officers of the guard had failed to pass the physical examination before the board of examining surgeons. The officers failing to pass were: Lieut. Col. Andrew C. Bergen, surgeon of the Second brigade, Sioux City. Maj. William J. Duggan, of the Third regiment, Creston. Maj. .Tames A. .Sherman, surgeon of the Fourth regiment, Cherokee. Capt. W. II. Keating, Company F, Third regiment, Oskaloosa. Capt. Van Buren Knott, additional assistant surgeon of Foui-tli i-ea-iment, Sioux City. faLicut. Park Findley, assistant surgeon. Third regiment, Des Moines. Lieut. C. A. Tracy, signal service corps of the First battalion of the Third regiment. Lieut. France C. Roberts, additional assistant surgeon, Second regiment, Fort Madison. . Capt. 13. C. Feairs, Company K, Third regiment, Corning. Of about twenty-five men examined the above failed to reach the requirements, although most of them were thrown out after a rigid examination because of weight. The officers are preparing a petition and will appeal tc Adjutant General Bycrs, and will ask him to appeal to the war department in their behalf THE IOWA TROOPS TO MOVE Governor KecclvcB un Order to Get a Regiment Koady DES MOINES, May 9.—Governor Shaw has received a telegram from the war department which reads as follows: It is the intention to on?or to camp Geo H. Jhomas, Chickamauga Park, Go., thij first regiment of infantry which is first completely equipped. Every effort should DO mude to complete a* far as possible each regnnout in turn rather than all simultaneously. Report by telegraph when the lirst regiment wll 1 bo ready. U. A'. AI.OEH, Secretary of Wai'. This is the first order received with regard to movement of troops. The governor notified the secretary of war that ho would be able to have a regiment ready for service and transportation on the 16th. As soon as the regiment required is chosen another will be gotten in readiness. (Tench liner Tries to Knn the Klocfcnde ; With Spanish KccniUs. i KEY WEST, May 7.—The big French liner La Fayette, of Santa Nazarie, with a full complement of passengers- and a general cargo, bound from Corunna, Spain. April 23, was captured 1 off Havana by the Annapolis. The La Fayette was headed directly for Havana and was captured only after an exciting chase. After being boarded by an officer from the Annapolis she attempted to "run for it," but'was again compelled to heave to. The Wilmington, Newport and Morrill participated in the capture. After examination of the Frenchman's papers a prize crew was placed on board and she was sent to Key West under escort of the Wilmington. A very delicate international question is thought tobe involved. The fact that she is thought to have left the Spanish port after the declaration of war seems to be warrant for holding her. On the question of contraband of war the officers of the Wilmington are reticent. The very large number of male passengers leads to the siispicicm that she carried recruits for Havana. KEY WEST, May 7.—Commodore Wat- sou received orders from Washington to instantly release the French mail steamer La Fnyctte and to send her to Havana under escort. The capture of the Frenchman by the gunboat Annapolis turns out to have been an unfortunate incident, resulting from mistakes; but no protest has been made to the representatives of the French government in the United States. The officials declare that this will close the affair. SPANISH FLEET. POSTOFFICE BURGLARIZED.

Sufo Damaged, Hut Little of Value Secured. BOONE, May 7.—-The postoffice at Ogden was burglarized about 3 o'clock a, in. The safe was drilled and a charge of powder exploded, but it was not sufficient to blow the safe open, although some of the contents of the safe were destroyed. The general store of Postmaster Zollinger, in which the postoffice is situated, suffered some loss and a small amount of money taken from the money drawer. A quantity of stamps in the office was left untouched. Mother Charged Wltli Murder.

WASHINGTON, May 7.—The four warships seen off Barbadoes Wednesday were the Vizcaya, Almirante Oquendo, Cristobal Colon and Infanta Maria Teresa. Somewhat confirmatory of this is the report that four warships were sighted about daylight off Martinique, which is 125 miles from Barbadoes. Martinique is about 400 miles from Porto Rico, which is undoubtedly the destination of the Spanish fleet. This indicates that an engagement between Sampson and the Spanish is likely to occur soon.

He. was on trial charged with malfeasance in office, drunkenness, permitting a prisoner to escnpc, etc. The case was tried before Judge House of Miiquokcta, Judge AVado cfe- cided not to preside at tho trial of an oilicer in his own court. Judge House took the case from the jury on technicalities, declaring that the law did not provide for tho dismissal of an oilicer where intoxication did not intorfore with tho performance of his official duties and that the recent escape of the prisoner at Cedar Rapids, while en route to Anamo.sa, unless willfully permitted by the sheriff, was not a, cause for expulsion. A do/.en other charges were stricken out on tho grounds that if tho .sheriff had been guilty as charged the malfeasance was in his preceding term of office. Collision «t Chariton.

Each of these costs 4 cents. The reason of the high price is the rise in the price of flour all over tho. country and a combine of Des Moiues bakers. When they first put in their bids at Adj. Gen. Bycrs's office the prices varied, and according to them tho bread could have been furnished to the men in camp at 3% cents a loaf. But the next day after the bids were in, every one of the baiters withdrew them and put in bids at -i cents a loaf. The contract for supplying the men was given to one establishment. At Chariton recently Sheriff Manning- arrested and turned over to the officers of Kansas City, Kansas, William Dorchester, wanted for murder at that place.
