this afternoon. The insurgents bad
fled last Monday, alter burning the
depot. Nothing else was destroyed by
them. Gerona is the first town along
the Manila-Dagupan railway line1
where the natives did not run at the
approach of the Americans. The
padres offered qurrters in the church
and convent. The town baa one good
house. Gerona is the seat of heavy
English Bugar interests.
The trip here was a hard one and oc
cupied six hours in covering seven
milea and a half, most of the time be

mile running out of the Tarlac. We
have no wagons, and pack mules and
native bearers carry all our supplies.
The natives here say that B.tyom

mounted troops, probably General
Young's brigade of General Lawton's
division. The people here are of a
better class than we have usually
found, and they welcomed the Ameri
cans, aa they evidently realize that
their agricultural interests will re
vive. General MacArthur said this after
tor noon: "We seem to be entering a

supplies. The expedition will go
north toward Bayombong probably to
day. The signal corps is constructing
lines with great rapidity.

through the enemy's country by train
from Panique, a distance of five miles,
the Americans reached Moncada,
where natives have displayed a
friendly disposition. The train is
'stalled by the wreck of two locomo

freight house and oepot had been
burned. No attempt will be made to
save the wrecked rolling stock, but
the track will be cleared, and as soon

Marsiialltown, Ia.. Nov. 20. At

Southwestern Mutual Life association
was entered, the safe blown open and
cash, drBfts and certificates of deposits

The robbery was the boldebt in the
history of the city. The office of the
association is situated in the basement
of the court house, one floor below the
sheriff's office and but a short distance
removed from the court chamber in
which the session of the district court
was being held at the time. It is sur
rounded by offices which were more or
less occupied by employes at the time
and the corridors of the court house
were thronged with residents of the
city and county, called there by the
court. And yet no one has yet been
found who heard the explosion or saw
the departure of the robbers.
Tt took something less than fifteen
minutes for the robber to opan the
office door, by means of a pair of nip
pers, blow open the sife with giant
powder, tear the money box from its
place, wrap it in a woman's mackin
tosh hanging near, and make his es
President H. S. Halbert of the as

when he went to dinner and at pre
cisely 12:45 F. B. Cooper, another offi
cial, entered the office. During the
interval the robbery was committed.
The outside door of the safe had
been left unlocked, but the inner door
was secured with a double lock. The
thief filled the keyhole with some high
explosive, blew the door to pieces.
wrapped the money drawer in the
mackintosh and stole away unob

About $50 in cash, drafts and checks
aggregating $4,000, and five certifi
cates of deposit oi ifouu each were
taken, besides valuable papers. The
certificates were issued by the Mar

II. S. Halbert and by him indorsed in
The county treasurer's office is Im
mediately above the office which was
robbed and this office is connected by
an inside door with the auditor's office.
Shortly before the robbery an attempt
was made to unlock the door of the
auditor's office,but the man was fright
ened away by Auditor Hargreave, who
chanced to be in the office at the time.
From this it is believed the robber
had designs upon the county treasury.

Doakesville, thirty miles east of Ant
lers, Deputy United States Marshals
James Eunis and Doog Everidge and
John Kelly, a Goodland merchant,

When Bishop was released recently
