Washington, D. C (Special.) The
navy department having requested a
correction of the portions of Admiral
Dewey's dispatch, which were not de
cipherable, was today able to furnish
the full text of the dispatch, which is
as fellows:
Manila. April 18. Secretary of the
Wavy, Washington: The Torktown
vial ted Baler, Luzon, east coast of
Luzon, P. I., April 12, for the purpose
Of rescuing and bringing away the
fpanlah forces, consisting of eighty sol
fefera, three officers and two priests,
who were surrounded by 400 insur
gents. Some of the insurgents armed
With Mauser rifles, as reported by na
tives. Lieutenant J. C. Gilmore, while
making an examination of the mouth
of the river in an armed boat, was am
bushed, fired upon and captured. Fate
unknown, as insurgents refused to
communicate afterward. The follow
ing are missing: The officer previously
referred to. Chief Quartermaster W.
Walton. Coxswain J. Ellsworth, Gun
ner's Mate H. J. Hygard, Sailmaker s
Kate Vendgit, Seamen W. H. Rynders
sad C. W. Woodbury, Apprentices D.
W. A. Venville, J. Peterson, Ordinary
Seamen F. Brisolese and O. B. McDon
ald, Landsmen L. T. Edwards, F. An.
derson, J. Dillon and C. A. Morrissey.
The officials of the navy department
are confident that such of the men of
Ike Torktown as escaped being killed
alright in the first ambuscade will be
well treated by the insurgents. Some
time ag the war department made in
quiries as to the number of American
prisoners held by the Filipinos. In
reply General Otis referred to these
soldiers and said they were being fairly
treated by the insurgents, he supplying
funds to defray the cost of their food.
The reports made to the navy depart
ment by Paymaster Wilcox of Dewey's
officers who made a trip across the
Island of Luzon from Manila to the
north coast, described the condition of
the Spanish officials who were the pris
oners of the insurgents, as very com
fortable. In many cases, he said, the officials
were only nominally in confinement,
being allowed the liberty of the towns.
The officials are hopeful that Gilmore
and his men who survived the ambus
cade will some day regain their liberty.
The department has sent no instruc
tions to Admiral Dewey as to the
course he shall pursue, believing that
he is fully competent to deal with the
ituatlon and resting secure in the as
rarance that he will spare no efforts
to rescue Gilmore and his men If they
are alive.

Colonel Vifquain and His Boys Are
In Georgia's Capital.
Augusta. Ga (Special Colonel Vic
tor Vifquain with his Cuban heroes ar
rived at Camp Mackenzie today and the
Third Nebraska Is encamped at the
place formerly occupied by the First
Maryland. The men left the quaran
tine station where they had a hard time
in the pouring rain yesterday morning
going up to Savannah and taking three
sections of cars for Augusta.
Upon reaching here they were trans
ferred to the Georgia road and carried
DUt three miles to a station near camp.
They reached the station at 10 a, m.,
having to lie there several hours. Wag.
ons were in waiting and carried them
up to the camp, where tents with floors,
mess halls and everything needed were
awaiting them. The health of the
regiment is excellent, only two men
oeing left sick behind. Lieutenant
humming of company F and Lieutenant
rurren of company H.
The regiment has a splendid location
:hree miles from the city and 300 feet
above it. The cars run within 300
t'ards of the camp.
The commander of the post called
:his afternoon and preparations for
nuster-out will commence at once. If
he books are in good condition the reg
.ment should be mustered out by May
L2. The men are delighted to return to
America. Colonel Vifquain is wearing

he enlisted men of the regiment.
Augusta, Ga., April 24. The firs
iress parade held for quite a while b
he Third Nebraska regiment was held
lere, a large number of citizens being
jresent to witness the evolutions.
The Third battalion marched on the
w?autiful parade ground first, followed
ioon after by the First and then the
Second. After the proper movements
tad been gone through with and the
egiments formed in line the band
narched the entire length of the line
tnd returned, playing a choice selec-
lon, stopping on the extreme right and
ireaking forth with "The Star Spangled
Janner." At the first note the long line
f soldiers, facing the west, stood at at.
ention, and every hat in the large
:rowd of spectators was doffed. The
risp breeze made the colors stand out
rembling and waving the folds over the
leads of the men, speaking protection
o all.
The red glow of the setting sun, the
(lue sky above and the white drifting
ilouds made the colors of the flag ot
iberty. It seemed to the men that the
aright stripes of their beloved colors
ere reflected on the horizon and the
ihole heavens had contributed in doing
lonor to the stars and stripes.
The phenomenon was eo striking that
t was visible to all, and as the last
totes of the national anthem were com
ileted by the musicians the clear notes
rere caught up by the breeze and
sehoed and re-echoed by the red hills
if Georgia and .South Carolina, which
teemed glad to take up the notes to
ihow that the sons of the south were
eady to unite with the sons of the
lorth, east and west In defense of the
lag and to cheer the national anthem.
The scene inspired all with so much
atriotlsm that It was several minutes
ifter the music had ceased before hats
vere again placed on heads and the
inclusion of the parade began.
At the completion of the dress parade
i review was held by Colonel Vifquain
ind the soldierly bearing and straight
Ines of the men brought forth many
xpresslons of admiration. It will be
nany a day before the first parade of
Ae Nebraska regiment at Augusta will

Chapter of Shame for
Philadelphia, Pa.. April 25. Matthew
Stanley Quay was Friday declared by a
ury of his peers to be not guilty ol

'unds of the state of Pennsylvania de
bited in the People's back of this city.
Harrisburg. Pa., April 25. Immedl
it?!y on receipt of the news that
Senator Quay was acquitted of the

ipnolnted him United States senator
.o fill the vacancy until the next legis-
ature meets and notified Vice Presi-
ient Hobart, as follows:
"Fir: By virtue of the power vested
n me as executive of the state of
Pennsylvania, under article 1, clause 2,
lection 3 of the constitution of the

ary appointment of the Hon. Mtthew
Stanley Quay to be United States sena-
or from Pennsylvania until the next

egislature meets.
Philadelphia, Pa., April 25. John
Vanamaker made the following state
ment relative to the acquittal of ex-
Senator Quay and the latter's appoint
nent by the governor as United Statet
'The acquittal of Senator Quay will
je a disappointment to every lover ol
ustlce and every friend of good gov-
rnment throughout the United States.
It records with emphasis the difficulty
if convicting potent political defend-
ints, charged with public crime, no
natter how clear, convincing and over
whelming the evidence may be.
"The story of the corrupt use and
ipeculatlon in public money In Penn
lylvania is an old one and has been a
natter of notorious accusation against
i long line of state treasurers and
olitlcal bosses for many years. Mr.
Quay himself has been again and
tgain accused of participation in treas
ury Jobbing by the newspapers of this
ind other states with circumstantial
letall. Heretofore, however, the baa's
for these accusations largely consisted
f oral testimony and of allegations by
political apponents.
"The case which terminated today,
jnllke previous allegations, was found
id exclusively upon documentary pnjof
n his own handwriting, and that of his
friends and confederates. The evidence
f the guilt did not depend upon the
veracity of any man or men, but was
lupported exclusively by his own let
ter and by written entries and state
ments recorded by his trusted friends
ind supporters.
"This is a new chapter of shame for
Pennsylvania, a new record of failure
m the administration of Justice that
sill do much to encourage corruption,
lets and public plunderers generally
hroughout the country. The first shout
of defiant exultation over his acquittal
nas proceeded from the governor of
the commonwealth, who has promptly
Appointed him a United States senator
without authority In violation of the
law and In defiance of the will of the
people as expressed by the votes of the

but the trial of corruptionlsts and plun.
