waa grossly Immoral conduct and Ig

GAVE UP THE G AnniSOIJ
SPANIARDS HOLD ON 'TIL THEIR
FOOD SUPPLY RUNS OUT.
Escorted to tha American Linos by
Filipinos Welcomed and Fated
by Their Recent Enemies.
Manila. (Special.) The Spanish com
mission, who went to Tarlac for a con.
ference with Agulnaldo regarding the
surrender of the Spanish prisoners In
the hands of the Filipinos, returned
here last Thursday. Chairman Del Rio
of the commission said the release of all
the prisoners had been practically ar
ranged for. but it would be necessary
to consult the Spanish government be
fore the agreement could be ratified..
He declined to give the terms of the ar
rangement, or to say whether these
contemplated a ransom. He asserted,
however, that Agulnaldo had already
issued a decree for the release of the
civilian officials and the sick soldiers.
The commissioners, with the rem.
nant of the Spanish garrison of Baler,
on the east coast of Luzon, and a num
ber of civilian prisoners, were escorted
by Filipino soldiers from Tarlac to the
American outpost at San Fernando,
and came to Manila by the night train,
The heroes of the long defense of
Baler, where the Spaniards resisted an
insurgent siege for more than a year,
formed a picturesque band. Lieutenant
Martin, the only surviving officer,
marched them through the streets.
There are only twenty-two, and most of
them are mere boys' In faded blue uni
forms and red shirts. They are bare
footed. A crowd of Spanish men and
women embraced them, weeping and
shouting their praises. They tell a re.
markable story. It appears that the
captain of the forces proposed to sur
render, but the soldiers refused. Final
ly, several month? ago, he tried to raise
a white flag, whereupon Lieutenant
Martin killed him. Their food supply
gave out entirely a week ago and they
surrendered to the Filipinos, with all
the honors of war. They were allowed
to keep their arms, and they say they
marched from Baler, with Filipino es
cort, and carrying guns, through sev
eral Insurgent camps, being everywhere
cheeder and feted.

Schurman to Coma Homo.

tary Hay said that he had received no
notice from President Schurman of the
Philippine commission of his intention
to sal llmmedlately from Manila for
home, nor any word from hm since his
return from his trip to the Philippines
south of Luzon. It was fully expected
by the department that Mr. Schurman
would return to the United States In
season te take up his work as presi
dent of Cornell university at the begin
ning of the fall term, and it is believed
that he undertook this visitation In or
der to be able to report personally to
the president the exact conditions pre
vailing among those unknown groups
of islands up. to the latest moment
There is believed to be no reason why
Mr. Schurman should delay his depar
ture from Manila until later In the sum
mer, for the Indications are that there
will be no change of moment in the
political situation in the Philippines be
fore the next dry season at least and,
moreover, the members of the com
mission will remain m the Islands.

men who had to dodge didn't like It
Through their glasses they could see
the Spaniards, who were standing
.round and evidently chuckling over
their work. So they sent to the left of
the regimental line with a request that
Lieutenant Mulr and "Gun Sling Jack"
be sent to pick off the Spaniards from
the gun that was worrying them.
"The Angle" was a sharp bend in
the trenches, the nearest point in the
lines of the Second to the big black
guns across the plain. Lieutenant Mulr
and Jack came up. Just as they
reached the corner a solid shot burled
itself in the hill slope ten feet back ot
the line. The lieutenant regarded dubi

Lieutenant Mulr holds army records
for shooting, so does Gun Sling Jack,
the latter, of course, under his right
name. What that may be, few of us
could say without a look at the First
Sergeant's roll book. For one man that
knew Jack's real name, there were a
dozen at Santiago who knew him only
by his popular nickname. The officer
and the enlisted man lay down togeth

their Krags between their crossed

"That's about it Let It go at that."

But the next man never came. Eight

nore would go the same way complete
