the Navy, Washington: November IS

dered to Very unconditionally. Deliv
ery all guns promised. Numerous
local chi fs declared loyalty.
The information contained in Ad
miral Watson's dispatch was received
by the president and his advisers with
unconcealed satisfaction. Ihe sur
render of the piovinceof Zamooanga
is regarded as the beginning of the
end of tho revolution in the island of
Mindanao and it is believed it will be
a hard b ow lo those who are still en
deavoring to maintain the insurrection
in the islaod of Luzon.
On the 21st inst Admiral Watson
cabled the navy department that Com
mander Very had captured the city of
Zamboanga on the 16th. IIo was aided
by the friendly natives and Moros and
was holding the town pending the ar
rival of reinforcements from Jolo. On
the same day General O'is informed
the war department that he had or
dered two companies of infantry to be
sent to Z.imboanga from Jolo.
Zamboanga is the principal province
of the island of Mindanao, which is
the second largest Uland of the Philip

Crowds Vlnit the Cemrtery.
New Yokk, Nov. 26. There was a
big crowd of visitors at Paterson, N.
J., today. The streets in front of Car
rol Hall, the Hobart home, was
crowded all day. The greatest crowd,
however, gathered at Cedar Lawn
cemetery. There a special detail of
police had to be maintained to keep
tho people from trampling about the
graves and the receiving vault. It is
not likely Vice President Ilobart's
body will be placed in the ground. It
is the intention of the family to erect
a tomb upon the plot of land where
Miss Fannie Hobart lies and beside
whose body, it is generally supposed
Mr. Hobart would be placed. The
work will probably be commenced be
fore long, eo it is doubtful if the body
of tho vice presdent will be removed
from its present resting place until the
tomb of the family is erected.

SPANISH PAPERS PROTEST.
Cuban Veterans Also Strongly Opposed to
a Civil Governorship.
HAVANA, Nov. 26. Some 5,000 peo
ple attended the meeting of the dele
gates of the Cuban league and na
tional party today. It was expected
the questions of the civil governorship
and the appointment of the new bishop
of Havana would be discussed. As it
turned out these matters were only
lightly touched upon.
From every part of the islands com
munications are received by the local
papers protesting against a civil gov
ernor general. Almost without ex
ception every paper published in Span
ish has objected. The majority con
demn the project utterly. The minor
ity think that any change to be made
should be by way of reducinsr the num
ber of American troops in the island.
In any event in the management of
the minority subgovernors should be
Cubans and not subject to any lecal
The veterans who constitute the
body from which trouble would be
most likely to arise are very pro
nounced against a civil governorship
in any form. The various centers are
making their objections and passing
resolutions which call upon the United
States congress to grant absolute in
dependence to Cuba. La Luc ha says
that the veterans do not represent
Cuba. To this charge they reply, al
though not representing financial in
terests, they certainly do represent
the element upon whose stability the
future form of government will largely
depend for its success.
Senor Capote, secretary of the gov
ernment, has issued an order lo the
civil governors di recti og them to en
force the acceptance of Spanish silver
coin during the reign of Queen Isa
Lieutenant Colonel Sanger, director
of census, will soon start on a tour
around the island on the Ingalls, Gen
eral's Brooke's dispatch boat, in con
nection with the taking of the census.
Senor Desuernine, secretary of
finance, has requested all administra
tors of finance to furnish him with in
formation regarding the number of
sugar mills in operation prior to the
war, the amount of their product and
the sums paid in tsxes.

Retreat So Hurriedly Seven
American Prisoners Escape.
Insurgents Are Short of Food and Am
munition and Mow Seem Disheartened
Three Hundred Spaniards Kicape
From the Filipinos Arter a Year's
MANILA, Nov. 27. 11:30 a. m. The
insurgents have evacuated Mang
alaren, province of Pangasanan, leav
ing seven American and ninety-four
Spanish prisoners, who escaped in the
confusion of the Filipino retreat. The
Americans are P. J. Green and George
Powers of the battleship Oregon;
Thomas Edwards and Charles Bird of
tbe Sixteenth infantry; Henry W.
James of the Twelfth infantry; John
Desmond of the signal corps and F. II.
Huber of Lowe's scouts. They report
that two Americans were unable to
escape and are with the insurgents.
They are David Scott of the Twenty
fourth infantry and William Sherby
of the hospital corps. Four deserters
are with the Filipinos, Howard, Mar
tin and Ford of the Californians and
Watts, whose former regiment is un
known. Howard is the only one serv
ing with the insurgents. He is a cap
tain of artillery.
Colonel Hell of the Thirty-fourth
volunteers arrived at Mangalaren last
evening after a hard march and ford
ing the Agno. He found that Fowler's
company ot the Thirty-third had oc
cupied the town for two days. The in
surgents. General Alejanprino com
manding, retreated to the mountains
behind the town, short of food and
ammunition. Besides this, his men
were deserting and six cannon, which
the insurgents were dragging, impeded
Colonel Bell proposes to follow the
Filipinos until he can bring about a
decisive fight or they are scattered.
Mangalaren was strongly fortified
with rifle pits, commanding the roads,
but the insurgents abandoned the
place without tiring a shot.
Againaldo's youngest child, who was
recently christened at Tarlac with
great ceremony, died and was buried
at Dayamban in Aguinaldo' flight.
General Wheaton reports that natives
have threatened violence to Agui
naldo's mother, who is now sheltered
in a convent with a guard. General
Otis has ordered her to be brought to
Manila for safety.
8panlsh Escape From Filipinos.
Three hundred Spanish prisoners
who escaped from their captors before
the Americas advance, including civil
officials of rank, who had been in the
hands of the Filipinos for more than a
year, and many officers, have arrived
at Manila during the last week. Fran
cisco Reyes brought 100 of them from
General Wheaton. They were a mot
ley appareled and bearded company.
Some were ill and Lad to be carried
from Tayug to San Fabian in army
A delegation of these former pris
oners has visited Major General Otis
in order to thank him for his hospital
ity, which included the furnishing of
food and clothes. Senor Jamarillo,the
Spanish commissioner, is making ar
rangements to send them to Spain on
board of Spanish transports.
Bduncamino has been lodged in com
fortable quarters at the police station
with his family. Other persons are
not allowed to communicate with him.
He is classed as being the most slip
pery personage connected with the
insurrection. He was a colonel in the
Spanish army and a traitor to Spain.
At the time of the first insurrection he
tried to sell out to the Filipinos and
his present imprisonment excites no
sympathy among his people, while the
Spaniards think it is mistaken len
iency for the Americans to refrain
from shooting him on the Luneta, the
fate dealt out to better men in the
Capture Kebel Ammunition.
Washington, Nov. 27. General
Otis today reports the situation in the
Philippines in the following dispatch
to the war department:
"Manila, Nov 27. Steamer from
San Fabiau yesterday brought 115
Spanish prisoners, $75,000 insurgent
government money and other property
captured by Lawton's troops near
Tayusr on 25h. Wheaton's troops.
Fowler's company Thirty-third, drove
enemy westward from Mangalaren, few
miles southwest Dagupan, captured
five three-inch muzzle-loading guns,
twelve rifles, 12,000 rounds Maxim
cartridges, 1,000 6hrapnel, 800 pounds
powder and other property; also
ninety-four Spanish and seven Amer
ican prisoners. Bell, with Thirty
sixth infantry, in pursuit and will
march down western Luzon coast. In
dications are two or three bodies in
surgent troops, numbering probably
500 or more men each, in mountains
west of railroad, can be readily han
dled by MacArthur; they have the
bulk of the insurgent artillery, all of
which will be captured unless buried.
'Young still in pursuit of Agui
naldo, who is beading for Bangued,
few miles east Vigan; Youngr with
cavalry and scouts is followed by bat
talion Thirty-third ar.d balance bat
talion Thirty-second; two battalions
Thirty-third enroute for Vigan by
military post road. Young's recep
tion by inhabitants enthusiastic; they
give all aid possible. Aguinaldo has
collected more than 1,000 of his troops
at the north; probably most will de
sert him. Number small detachments
of insurgent troops throughout coun
try north of Manila have been cap
tured and inhabitants manifest grati
tude for deliverance. Indications are
that insurgent force south of Manila
is disintegrating and troops going to
their home. Reports from southern
islands favorable. Zamboanga insur
gents surrendered to our troops and
no trouble anticipated there."
Later in the day the following dis
patch was received from General Otis:
"Oregon landed marines at Vigan
yesterday. Young'6 colnmn at Nain
ogpacan, twenty miles north of San
Fernando, on 23d, from which point
passed north into mountains. Troops
will relieve marines at Vigati, 29th.
Bulk Spanish and American prisoners
reported at Bangued, twenty miles
east Vigan. Wheaton, San Fabian,
just reports capture of seventy-three
more rifles and $1,100 in money, also
that he has been obliged to take
mother and son of Aguinaldo under
guard at Fabian to prevent their mur
der by natives. They will be sent
here the first opportunity and deliv
ered to friends. Natives in vicinity
Bayambong, Nuesta Vlscaya, offering
services to drive out insurgents there.
"Reports from Zamboanga say in
surgents surrendered heavy artillery
to navy and since have surrendered to
Nichols, commanding a battalion of
Twenty-third Infantry, 179 rifles, one
Nordenfeldt and four breach-loading
cannon. Order restored in town and
vicinity. About eighty Tagolos scat
tered in mountains."
Test Proves Successful.
Chicago, Nov. 27. Professor W S.
Johnson and Professor C. L. Fortier of
Milwaukee made a successful test of
the wireless telegraph.- They suc
ceeded in telegraphing without wires
through a suite of seven rooms with
all doors closed and through seven
walls. Another test was made when
the signals were conveyed through
fireproof vaults and an ordinary tele
graph switchboard in which thirty
wires were connected up and about
forty dead wires were located.
Notwithstanding the fact that this
switchboard contained live wires, the
current passed through all the vaults
and through this board. This is one
of the most severe tests that has ever
been given wireless telegraphy.
