Some of the insurgents were armed with Mau^or rillos, as reported by the natives. 'Lieutenant.!. C. Gilmorc, while making an examination of the mouth of tho river in an armed bout, wns ambushed, fired upon aud captured. His ifale is unknown as the insurgents refused to communicate afterwards. "Dicwur." MANILA, April 33.—Admiral Dewey in tin interview said the expedition of the gunboat York town to Baler was purely to rescue the Spanish soldiers and priests, who are being besieged in a church there. The soldiers refused to surrender when ordered to lay down their arms by General llios at the end of the Paris peace conference. Dewey said he did not know what had become of Lieutenant Gilmore nud the fourteen men in the launch. They had been sent to sound the mouth of the river, but went beyond tho bend, out of sight of the Yorktown. The supposition is that they were captured or killed by the Spaniards or the 400 insurgents who are besieging the Spanish garrison. Dewey declined to say what steps he would take toward a punitive expedition. General Uios, the Spanish commander, when interviewed, said that he did not think the garrison at Baler knew the war between the United States and Spain hud ended, lie had sent an officer in January to tell the garrison to surrender. The garrison refused to surrender, either not believing the officer or fearing they would bo trapped by the insurgents. Since then General llios has had no communication with the garrison.

PuiLADnr.rniA, April 33.—Matthew Stanley Quay was yesterday declared by a jury of his peers not guilty of the charge of conspiring to use for his own unlawful gain nnd profit funds of the state of Pennsylvania, deposited in the People's Bank of Philadelphia. The charges against Senator Quay followed the collapse of the People's bank in March, 1898, and tho examination of its books by a receiver. Tho warrants were issued in the following October and included, besides Quay and his son, the names of Charles S. McKce, a Pittsburg lawyer, and ex- State Treasurer Benjnmin J. Haywood. On November 21 the grand jury found true bills against all but McGec. The suicide of Cashier Hopkins just prior to the bank's failurn prevented his coming within the scope of criminal action. The indictments were five in number. Thusc were re- reduced to four by the death of Mr. liny wood on February 33 of this year. One week after true bills hnd been found, counsel for Mr. Quay and the other defendants filed demurrers to four of them and moved to quash tha fifth. Drudge Finletlcr on December 1, 180y, decided ngainst the defendants. Counsel then carried tho caso to the r.uprcme court, on the plan, among other contentions, th.'it tha prosecution was actuated by political motives, which would prevent an impartial trial in this county. Tha supremo court declined to interfere. The trial wns set for February 20 and was postponed until the 37th, when it was ngain postponed until April 10. Quay's lawyers say the district attorney picked out tho indictment on which he could make the bust case for tho trial just ended, and will not claro to bring tho senator to the bar again. The political friends of Quay are urging him to bring criminal prosecutions against those enemies who they claim are behind the prosecution of their favorite, but the senator will not indicate what his course in this respect may be. • ' HAliiilSBtnta, April 22. — Governor Stone appointed Matliew Stanley Quay senator to serve until the next session of the legislature. Governor Stone, it is stated, will in the near future announce that he has appointed Quay to tho United Slates senatorship, vacated by him on March 4. Governor Stone will take this action, notwithstanding previous decisions on the question of his right to do so, and will leave the question of Quay's eligibility to be disposed of later on. PEBELS REPULSED. I.nwton Kiinnuntorg t.lio iniljiinos In n Field Near Novullclieij. MANILA, April 24. — Lawton took the field at daybreak Saturday, with North Dakota infantry, two batallions Third infantry, Twenty-second infantry, two guns of Scott's battery, three troops Fourth cavalry and Gale's squadron in light marching order. The force started at 5 o'clock over Novaliches road, traversing the country previously cleared of rebels, but subsequently re-occupied by them. It is presumed Lawton will out-flank the enemy before joining MacArthur on the north of Muolos. The Dakotans first encountered the enemy in front of Novatiohes at 8:15. The rebels opened fire, but were silenced in fifteen minutes, retiring 1 in bad order, the Americans advancing. They were considerably annoyed by the fire of the rebel sharpshooters from the jungle for two hours. At 3 o'clock in the afternoon the rebels fled in full flight, leaving many dead. Our troops were compelled to take a brief rest in tha shade, as the heat was overpowering. SPLIT IN FILIPINO JUNTA. by SooeilorB Hiiro Fultli In Uowoy for Final Settlement. LONDON, April 31.— It is learned the Associated Press that a split occurred in the Filipino junta.

' WASIIINQTON, April 21.—An unexpected delay has occurred in the negotiations toward an Alaskan boundary modus vivendi which makes the future of the modus quite problematical. Extended conferences on the subjccl have been held recently, the result being far from encouraging The principal difficulty arises from dealing with Ottawa as well as London, this dual negotiation causing" great delay and complication. At the outset the United States proposed a modus with a temporary line along certain peaks. The British ambassador forwarded this to London and Ottawa. Tho Canadian officials have now proposed changes in the line, and after considerable delay tho authorities in London approved the changes proposed by Canada. It, is not stated what the respective lines are, but they arc sufficiently npart to make it quite unlikely that any immediate agreement can be rciichcd, even of a temporary nature, as to the boundary. TDANQUILITY IN SIGHT. ARMY BEEF INVESTIGATION Clufilios JJotirceii Authorities nml 1'coplo In Cub.i IJCBS Frequent. HAVANA, April 22.—Now that the Cuban army is on the point of melting away and the political ngitators have been effectively quieted, little remains to check a rapidly growing sense of public tranquility throughout the island. In the last ton days much has been made of certain [clashes between the police and the United States soldiery here, and of various outbreaks of brigandage in this and other provinces, but these disturbances are purely of minor and accidental importance. Two American soldiers have been killed in tho rioting which has tnkeu pliieo in Vcdada and other suburbs where United States troops are quartered. It has uniformly been found, however, that in CHSCS where the United States soldiers have had a conflict with the police the soldiers were clearly to blame. There have been hundreds of instances in Havana in which drunken soldiers have resisted arrest, aud com mi tied .all sorts of offenses against the municipal law, and such conduct has been aggravated by the common feeling among tho troops that the local authorities of tho place had not the courage to use their arms against American offenders. PRESIDENT MAKES DECISION. Will Not KnllHt tho Provisional Army or 35,OOO at I'rcHent. WASHINGTON, April 21.—The president, after a consultation with Alger, 'Long and Corbin, decided to adhere to his decision, not for the present, to enlist the 35,0.00 volunteers authorized by congress. Otis has a force of 22,00!J effective men, and with the troops oa the way to him and those to be son the will haye 30,000, even after tho volunteers now there return. This is thought ample for tho summer, and matters in Cuba and Porto liico are (so shaping- that additional troops can probably be sent him from thesq islands, if necessary. . -. • _U. S.

FBESNO, Col., April 21.—The bloody highbinder war that lias boon expected for some days, broke out in Chinatown yesterday, and as a result three Mongolians occupy slabs in the morgue, two more are nt the county hospital, mortally wounded, and nine are behind the bars 111 the county jail. Tho officers have anticipated an outbreak for some time, as it was known a large number of hatchet men hud arrived hero from San Francisco, but so cunning were their plans that not an officer was close enough to witness the opening battle. The Chinese had' decoyed the policemen on duty in that district to various quarters remote from the scene of tiie intended onslaught. The fight created much excitement, and more trouble is feared. It is remarkable that there were not more victims, as fifty shots were fired. WILL PUSH THE WAR. i flclnilnlfitriitlon DinhloH Not to I/ct tho Hostilities Wnit on I!;ilny Sosisoil. WASHINGTON, April 21. — Notwithstanding 1 the presence of the hot season and the imminence of the rainy season in tho Philippines, there is to be no cessation of active hostilities against tho Filipinos. Appreciating? the hardships which our troops will have to undergo aud the desirability of replacing the volunteers to be brought home by returning troops, additional troops will be brought to Manila, besides the six regiments now en route or under orders, one of which will undoubtedly be the Eleventh regiment, to be relieved from duty in Porto Ricn. The necessity of maintaining vigorous operations is all the more apparent in view of the demoralized condition of Aguinaldo's forces and the iuiidusability of giving- them an opportunity to reorganize.
