Hono Kono, Aug. 10. The German
steamer Petrarch, which left Manila on
August 6, arrived here yeaterdsy and
brought the first news of a severe en
gagement between the Spaniards and
Americans near Manila. The Americans
were victorious and only lost eleven
Lien killed and thirty-seven wounded.
Ti e Spanish losees are not known, but
they are reported to have been heavy.
The insurgent forces remained neutral.
The attack was made on the American
camp between Cavite ane Manila during
the night of July 31.TheSpanish troops,
who numbered aboi;. 3,000 men, made
several desperate charges on the Ameri
can lines, but each time the fire of the
Americans drove the Spaniards back,
and finally broke the Spanish center,
and the enemy retreated.
Later, however, the Spaniards made a
second attack, but were again repulsed
and retreated into the brush, keeping up
an incessant fire on the roads leading to
Manila, over which they apparently ex
pected the American troops to advance.
Some estimates place the Spanish losses
at over 500 men killed and wounded.
Marrltt Confirms It.
Washington, Aug. 10, General Mer
ritt has cabled ihe war department a
dispatch confirmatory of the press re
ports of the battle a Manila.
Secretary Alger regards the Manila

''The Brigadier-general commanding
desires to thank tbe troops engaged last
night for gallantry and skill displayed
by them in repelling such a vigorous at

yielded by the Tenth Pennsylvania in

the trenches. A battalion of the Tiiird
artillery and First Cal fnrnia infantry
moved forward to their supp rt through

the highest commendation."

Wajriotor, Aug. 8 The reply ot
the Spanish government to the peace
conditions laid down by the United
States was received by the French am
baeaador, M. Cambon, shortly before 8
o'clock yesterday afternoon. The reply
came in sections, the dispatch first re
ceived giving only the opening passages
of the Spanish reply. A few minutes
later another dispatch brought a second
section and these kept coming uninter
ruptedly by a procession of messengers
until eeven sections of the reply bad
been received at ten minutes of 4 o'clock,
when the last part waa still to arrive.
In the meantime the cipher experts were
at work, and by 4 :30 o'clock they were
abreast of all that portion of the reply
received up to that time, and there wae
a lull of some time pending the arrival
of the concluding portions. It was
thought a terrific rain storm which
swept over Washington about 4 o'clock
might have occasioned delay of the re
mainder. Pending the receipt of the complete
reply no steps were taken to fix a time
for a conference with the president, as
that depended largely upon some of the
features of the reply, and upon the ex
plicit instructions concerning the deliv
ery of the answer which usually accom
panies a document of this character.
Neither at the White house nor at the
state department was there any official
knowledge that the reply had reached
Washington, and the usual office hours
closed with no appointment made for a
conference. There was felt to be little
likelihood, even should the ambassador
receive the complete reply and instruc
tions, that there would be a night con
ference at the White house for the pur
pose of presenting the document.
SPECULATION AS TO THE ANSWER.
Pending the official delivery of the an
swer speculation was rife as to its con
tents. There was little or no further
doubt that the length of the reply meant
that Spain had not given a simple and
direct affirmative to the American con
dition. It was evident that if the reply
was an acceptance, it was accompanied
by extended discussion, and probably by
conditions. This caused considerable
apprehension in official circles here, for
while it was felt last week that Spain
would surely yield in every particular,
it began to be felt that possibly there
might be another period of discussion
and posibly an indirect attempt to open
up a diplomatic exchange on the nature
o! the terms. The prevailing view, how
ever was that the 'eply was on its face
an acc ptane, although not such a one
as precluded all possibility of further
discussion. All vital points were be
lieved to becom e led the abandonment
of Cub , Porto Rico, and the Ladronee
kV d the establishment of a commission
to pans upon questions relating to the
Phillipines. In the carrying out of this
program it waa be ieved that Spain
would seek to secure an understanding
on many incidental point involved.
so:i e of them of considerable impor
tance. For instance, some d ubt was
raised as to whether Spain's acceptance
would be operative until referred to and
ratified by the Spanish cortee, and it
was understood that the reply might
call attention to this condition. . The
same condition, it was pointed, exists as
to the United States, for a peace treaty
requires the ratification of the United
States senate, to become operative. In
case Spain's answer discussed these in
cidental points there promised to be
wide latitude for controversy and delay
unless the president and cabinet decline
to enter the field of discussion. ,
STAND RV FIRST PROPOSITION.
Late in the afternoon the president
received an indirect intimation that the
Spanish reply hud come to the French
embassy. A cabinet officer who waa
with him at this time said on leaving -
"The Information that has coma from
Madrid about the action of Spanish cab
inet indicates the Spanish have accepted
our term? in a general way, but leaves
several questious open that we did not
include in the terms pubmittcd. The
communication offering these terms
was explicit, specifically stating such
points as would be left open to further
negotiations. We will stand on these
The administration has not yet given
serious consideration to the personnel
of the peace commission, but it can be
stated that no one not in accord with
the president's present views as to the
disposition of the Philippines will be
sppointed, and Mr. McKinley favors
keeping at least Manila, Manila lav and
sufficient territory aroun I it for its sup
port and protection, if not the whole of
Luxon island. As to the members of
the cabinet as members of the commis
sion, there are precedents for their ap
oointment, notably the treaty of Ghent.
WILL OET TlIX ANSWER TODAY.
The concluding portion of 'he reply
was received during th evening, but it
was not unitl a late hour that it was de
ciphered as a whole and gone over by
the ambassador. No effort whs made
to communicate it to the United S'ates
government last night, beyon I a note to
Secretary Day advising him that the
document had been received, but not
disclosing its contents. It is probable
that the rep'y will be delivered to the
president at the cabinet meeting today,
though no hour has been fixed.

"Today all tbe best authorities agree
that the government has agreed to the
American conditions. President Mc
Kinley turned a deaf ear to the sugges
tion that Porto Rico might be left for
Spain and compensation sought else
where. "Meanwhile Sagasta's extensive con
sultations seemed to leave no doubt that
the nation wants peace.
"In all interviews Hagasta spoke with
apparent frankness and a sincerity and
personal disinterestedness that might
well have disarmed all but the most
hardened politicians. Even when ' it
was suggested that he ought to leave to
capable hands the task of concluding
peace, be displayed no impatience or
resentment. He even showed the most
perfect courtesy to Senor Romero y

"As to the context; of Spain's reply
the oracles differ. Some say it contains
no contentious matter, accept simply in
principal the four demands of President
McKinley's first communication ' and
suggests an immediate suspension of
hostilities. On the other (hand others
affirm that it is prefaced by an account
of the origin of the war tending to prove
that, as Spain was in no sense the ag
