REPORTS THAT AGUINALDO'8
REPUBLIC 18 CRUSHED.
Claims Mad That Force or Fili
pino Ar Widely Scattered
Manila, Nov. 28.-The new which the
Steamship Brutus brings from Dagupan
dlapela all doubts that the so-called
Filipino republic is crumbling like a
house of cards.
Agulnaldo is deserted or being aban
doned by the politicians, and the army,
which a fortnight ago was Intrenched
t Tarlac, and exercised a defacto gov
ernment over nine-tenths of the people
of Luzon, is fugitive In the mountains
with small hope of re-establishing the
machine. The army Is scattered In the
hills on both sides of the railroad, and
the separated detachments are within
the cordon which Generals Lawton and
Wheaton have cemented.
The ruling spirit in the cabinet is a
prisoner in Manila, a white elephant on
the hands of the authorities, and the
mall fry are tumbling over one an
other to get to Manila.
Three provincial governors have ar
rived In Manila to ask General Otis to
Install them In their old offices under
the new regime. Dr. Luna, a brother of
General Luna, and a prominent insur
rectionist, has arrived here, and him
self and many others are applying to
General "Otis for permission to enjoy
the luxuries of Manila, after months of
eparatlon fro mctvlllzation.
There were no demonstrations over
the victory here. The flags are flying
at half mast out of respect for Vice
President Hobart. The natives appear
to be unmoved and business Is unruf

made feeble attacks upon Imus and

Trinldsrd, Eastern Arlngay, toward
Bayambng, escorted by 2j0 men of the
Bulacan battalion, who dwindled from
WO within a week. General Mlno, who
fought the Thirty-third at Han Jacinto,
is supposed to have Joined him.
A letter from General Mno has been
Intercepted. In which the 'writer says
that 20 of his men had been killed or
mounded, that he had enough and was
going to the mountains.
STILL ON TUB TRAIL.
General Young, with the Maccabebe
and Chase's scouts, Is still on the trail
of the fugitives. Men and horses are
badly used up. General Wheaton Is
trying to get reinforcements and sup
. Biles to them from the coast.
General Young left Tayug November
13. to connect with General Wheaton
with the Maceabebe and three troops
of cavalry. Two troops, commanded
by Captain Hunter and Lieut. Thayer,
pushed through to Aslgnan. From that
point Lieutenant Thayer, with twelve
men, started for San Fabian, taking
the chances of getting through the
lines of the enemy, who were suppos
ed to be between Aslngan and Fabian.
During a during ride by way of Mc-
Oeldan and San Jacinto, he arrived at
Sua Fabian November 14. dashing thro'
a considerable force of the enemy at
Magaidan. Ills undertaking was re
ported at Manila by courier from Gen
eral Young at Kan Jose. The fate of
Lieutenant Thayer and his companions
was not known until today and fears
prevailed here that they had been eith
er killed or captured.

organ, the Cologne Volks Zeitung, have

Kreuz Zeitung saying: "Opinion in

SYMPATHY WITH BOERS.
The comment on the South African
war, generally, is tinctured with ill
will for Great Britain. The Deutsche

Details of the czar's visit to Potsdam
are leaking out. The correspondent
here of the Associated Press learns
from a person who was present that
the czar was cool and reserved at first
This was due not only to his natural
disposition and abhorrence of scenes
and painful explanations, but also to
the fact that for some time past sto
ries have been circulated by go-be
tweens at both courts, of biting re
marks of the emperor to the effect
that the czar waa a "pantoffel," and
held to be averse to everything mili
tary about his "spellerol Hague con
ference, all of which was reported to
the czar In distorted shapes.
Owing to this the meeting was re
peatedly put off and finally took place
through the Influence of the-czarina
However, the emperor's explanations
were Irresistible, and the amiability
which he knows so well how to display
when It sules him, had the desired ef
feet, so the czar departed In a friendly
mood. He was not angry, nor aston
ished at the Samoa agreement and a
better understanding between Great
Britain and Germany.
NO USE FOR CHAMBERLAIN.
Regarding the emperor's present feel
Ings about the war, the Associated
Press correspondent learns from the
same authority that his natural sym
pathies are altogether on the British
side, but he clearly realizes that the
complete wiping out of the Boers as
an Independent political element In
South Africa, would not subserve Ger
man Interests. He also disapproves of
what he term Mr. Chamberlain s in
sincere and provocative policy."
Although expected, the burial of the
antl-strlke bill came more swiftly than
anticipated by either the government
or the reichstag. The collapse was
due to the conviction of the centrists
that their amendments would no' be
accepted by the government.
The correspondent of the Associated
Press learns that there Is no Intention
to introduce another antl-soclailst bill
at present. Emperor William no longer
attaches the highest Importance to an
antl-strlke bill, and even the canal bill

London, Nov. 28. The position in

which the censorship his increased. Al
though a division and a half have now

tically powerless until supplied with
cavalry and artillery -and until these
arrive the situation will undoubtedly

Natal, besides Kimberley and Mafe

the outlook Is rega riled as distinctly

such as It was. That battle decided
nothing, and It seems certain that
many experts are of the opinion that
the Btory of the return of the pursuing
cavalry without getting In touch with
the retreating Boers, indicates that the
cavalry discovered In time that If it

It will not surprise any one If the
Boers are shortly again discovered In

It can be relieved for some time. While
the official dispatches from the Boer
head laager outside Ladysmlth, dated
November 24, showed that the town
was still flying the Union Jack Friday,
the cheerful tone of the message and
the evident anticipation of the speedy
reduction of Ladysmlth is not calcu
lated to cheer anxious relative.
The reported silence of the British
guns also again arouses fears of a
shortness of ammunition, and the fact
that the Boers have Just placed In po
sition another siege gun, shows that
they have not yet done their worst.
The -arrival of the German officers,
some of whom, it is learned, gained
large experience In reducing fortifica
tions in 1870, has caused a change or
tactics which will add to the suspense
of the sorely tired garrison.

In all directions. The Capetown dis
patch received at a late hour indicates
that the enemy have blown up a rail
way bridge between Rosmead Junction
and Mlddleburg, with the object of
preventing an advance from Port Eliz
abeth. This was effected by a small
commando which, it Is slated, remains
In the neighborhood. The effect of the
blowing up of this bridge will be to
tend to Isolate Naauwpoort, which was
recently reoccupled by the British and

MILES ON TUB BOER WAR.
Atlanta, Ga,, Nov. 28. General Miles
has arrived here from New Orleans on
an official tour of Inspection. Since
he beginning of his tour in the south
and west General Miles has found the
army posts In good condition and is
pleased with his visit. When asked
what he thought would be the probable
result of the British and Boer war he
did not hesitate to say that England
would eventually win, but emphasized
he fact that the victory would be
bought with a great sacrifice of lives
and property. "BrltlBh arms In the
Transvaal will be carried to victory,"
he said, "but there will be many lives
lost, much property swept away. If
the Boers had a many soldier and as

undertake to say what would be the

"COIN" HARVEY'S NEW BOOK.
Writers and orators, like soldiers, make it a practice to overshoot the
people they are aiming at. It Is said that It takes as much as a ton of lead
in bullets to disable one man. So it is In writing books. As an Illustration,
a certain gentleman has one copy of "Coin's Financial School," and stack
ed around this little book are thirty-odd other books which were published
as attempted answers to the little schoolmaster's lecture. Tens of thou
sands of newspapers, magazines, periodicals, secular and regillous, pub
lished In all languages and In all countries known to mankind, have been
wrestling from the day the book appeared until now with the simple truths
so plainly explained by Mr. Harvey in his remarkable work, "Coin's Finan
The American people will be rejoiced to know that this gifted writer, so
powerful in stripping mystified propositions of their seeming mystery,- and
restating them In manner and form that we all can comprehend, is now en
gaged in writing a new book entitled "Coin on Money Trust and Imper
ialism," which will be sold at 25 cents a copy.
Much the same direct and simple school room style which gave to
"Coin's Financial School" an unprecedented hold on the people, Is fol
lowed In this new work. The young schoolmaster has grown sufficiently In
the past few years, and since he lectured on the silver question, to exchange
his knee breeches for long trousers, but that does not alter his style of
teaching. Think of the hundreds of thousands of men, women and chil
dren who will attend "Coin's School on Money Trust and Imperialism," and
familiarize themselves with these great questions before the winter months
Coin Publishing Co., No. 5 Studio Building, corner State and Ohio street,
Chicago, are the publishers of Mr. Harvey new book. The work will be
sold exclusively by agents, who will agree to begin work at once and take
subscriptions In their counties. Those who will give this matter their
prompt attention are requested to send in twelve cents (six two-cent
stamps) for prospectus, terms to agents and other valuable information,
which will fit them out for Immediate business. Address air communica

of Gedid and attacked it. After a sharp

of emirs, was killed and all the princi

WOMAN CROOK IN MALE ATTIRE
Sex of Sentenced Forger Discover
ed After Reaching Pen
Chester, III., Nov. 28. Ellis Glenn
until today believed by everybody in
Southern Illinois and Missouri to be a
man, turns out to be a woman.
Glenn, who came from the east,
was arrested and .pleaded guilty at
Hlllsboro, 111., on a charge of forgery.
It was alleged that he endeavored to
obtain money on a forged note. He
was sentenced to serve an Indefinite
period on parole at the Southern 1111
nols penitentiary at Chester. This Is
an Institution for male prisoners only,
Today Glenn arrived at the prison in
charge of Sheriff Cassldy. A few min
utes after the pair arrived the prison
walls shook with a sensation, Glenn
was regularly turned over to Deputy
Warden Dowell, who receipted for him.
The prisoner was ordered, as is cus
tomary in such cases, to have his hair
clipped. This operation performed, he
was assigned to the bath room to un
dergo a good washing, as is also cus
tomary before being allowed to com
mingle with the cleanly birds In the
Chester bast lie.
The sex of the prisoner was discov
ered before the Immersion. It was a
surprise to the officials. Glenn was
hustled into his clothes again without
any delay and sent off to the hospital,
where an examination by surgeons
proved conclusively that the new ar
rival was not a man, as had been sup
posed, and as it had led everybody to
believe, but a real live woman.
As there is no ward for women at
Chester, Glenn was placed In charge of
Sheriff Cassldy and forwarded back to
Hlllsboro. Deputy Dowell questioned
her closely and the story she tells is
that she Is from Ohio; that she has
been In Texas. The offense she was
sent to prison for was committed by a
twin brother from whom she could not
be distinguished when in men's attire;
that she met him In Paducah, Ky.,
changing clothes with him, that he
might escape; that she resembled him
so strongly that she deceived acquaint
ances and even deceived the girl that
he was to marry.
-The deputy regarded the whole yarn
as a fish story and Is of the opinion
that the sending out of her photo
graphs will lead to the discovery of a
dangerous crook wanted in more places

cross pierced a shaft of crimson that

repeated the words: "The Lord gave

The chief magistrate , of ., the country

visibly agitated. There was scarcely a

All the pomp of an official pagehtr'
which was omitted In deference to the
wishes of the deceased, could never
have equaled In lmpresslveness the

solemn strains of Chopin's funeral
march filled the edifice with Its solemn
melody as the casket was borne up the
aisle on the shoulders of the stalwart
members of the capitol police and plac

front of the pulpit. Following It came
the pall bearers, members of the sen

the widow and h?r son, President Mc
Klnley, the government dignitaries and
intimate friends. They all- sat close
around the casket.
On every side of It the floral offer

and color. The funeral services were
opened by Rev. Dr. Charles S. Shaw,
who read a portion of Psalms xc, 1-4

selection from Job xiv, 1-2 and 7-12,
and concluded by a reading from th
fifteenth chapter of Corinthians. After
a prayer sixty male voices filled the
church with the beautiful melody of
