MANILA, Nov. 20.—The following
dispatches have been received here
lrom correspondents of the Associated
Press, accompanying the American ad
vance northward:
GERONA, Nov. 18— General Mac
Arthur entered Gerona as already ca
bled, this afternoon. The insurgents
had fled last Monday, after burning
the depot. Nothing eise was destroyed
by them. Gerona Is the first town
along the Manila Dagupan railway
line, where the natives did not run at
the approach of the Americans. The
padres offered quarters in the church
and convent. The town has one good
house. Gerona is the seat of heavy
English sugar interests.
The trip here was a hard one and
occupied six hours in covering seven
miles and a half. Most of the time
was sepnt In fording a quarter of a
mile flood, running out of the Rio Tar
lac. We have no wagons, and pack
mules and native hearers carry all our
The natives here say that Ilayom
bona was occupied last Sunday by
mounted troops, probably General
Young's brigade of General Lawton's
division. The people here are of a
better class than we have usually
found, and they welcomed the Amer
icans, as they evidently realize that
their agricultural Interests will revive.
General MacArthur said this after
noon: “We seem to be entering a dif
ferent political atmosphere. The peo
ple here seem to be less attached to
Agulnaldo’s cause than those In many
towns we have entered on the railroad
The command will move nonnwaru
at daybreak tomorrow, toward Bayom

two companies of the Thirty-sixth,
Immediately on entering Gerona Sla
ven's scouts moved up the track to
ward Panique. On the way they en
countered an entrenched party of in
surgents, whom they drove back, then
entering the town and capturing four
locomotives and thirteen cars, as al
ready cabled. They learned that 500
insurgents had left the town in the
course of the afternoon.
"PANIQUE, Nov. 20.—General Mac
Arthur’s troops arrived from Gerona
in the course of the morning. The
lailroad beyond this point had been
destroyed. The captured railway stock
is being repaired to handle supplies.
The expedition will go north toward
Iiayomboug, probably today. The sig
nal corps Is constructing lines with
great rapidity. A native courier from
Ilayombong reports that the American
troops left the town soon after they
entered, and that many natives re
main, though no insurgents.
General MacArthur discovered here
Major Joneson, formerly chief sur
geon on the staff of the Filipino com
mander, General Mascardo. He re
sides at Bacolor, and is about to re
turn there to resume his practice.
Major Joneson says that all respecta
ble Filipinos are disgusted with the
behavior of the insurgents and are
very glad that the Americans have the
upper hand.
A continuous procession of refugees
is entering Panique from the north,
indicating the proximity of other
American troops, probably off the rail
road line. These refugees say that the
insurgents have not known which way
to turn, with the Americans occupying
so many places on the north.

DURBAN, Natal, Nov. 20.—Tl.e
Times of Natal publishes the follow
“The enemy made a determined at
tack on Thursday, November 9. Ap
parently all the Boer forces particlpat
td. Their artillery opened at 4 a. nt.,
pouring in shells thick and fast upon
the British positions, although with no
great effect. They adopted the unus
ual tactics of advancing under cover
of their to positions on the ridges and
kopjes adjacent to those occupied by
the British troops early in the invest

steady, warm and accurate fire, which
beat hack the enemy, notwithstanding
the display of tenacity of purpose equal
to their desperate stands on previous
occasions. The Boer attack was mo-tt
elaborate on all sides of the town.
“The main attack was made, how
ever, between the Free State and New
castle railway lines by a column chief
ly of Johannesburg volunteers. A bri
gade of King's Royal Rifles corps made
a splendid defense. The Boers wi re
repulsed, but soon rallied and return
ed to the fight. Again the British fire,
which was very hot, forced them to re
tire. They had made a deep trem n iu
front of the British lines and while
withdrawing from their horses they
left this unguarded, whereupon the
King’s Rifles, advancing at double
quick, occupied the trench.
“This smart movement was not seen
by the enemy, who soon returned
with their horses. Carefully reserving
their fire the King’s Rifles allowed the
Boers to advance almost to the euge
of the trench and then poured volley
after volley Into the astounded Boers,
who turned and fled from an awful hail
of bullets, bolting across the jtpen,

The enemy lost heavily, fulling about
in heaps.
“Meanwhile another section of the
Boers had brought a mortar Into ac

New York—Pozorubio, which place
the Herald’s special cable Indicates tin*
rebel leader now occupies, Is about ten
miles from San Jacinto, lying a llttla
north of east from that town.
It was at San Jacinto that the last
hard fighting with the insurgents was
reported, in which Major John A. Lo
gan was killed while leading a charge.
The war department had hopes that
Aguinaldo hud been caught between
the lines of General Wheaton qn the
coast of the gulf of Llngayen, and those
of MacArthur near Tarlac.
In the meantime Lawton has been
pushing up through the Interior, send
ing his cavalry under General Young
far ahead In the direction of Bayou
borg. Two days ago it was reported
that Young was but a few miles from
the latter point.
Major Swlgert is a cavalry officer,
and, while not absolutely certain, in
army circles at Washington last night,
it was believed that he wa3 attached
to General Young’s command.
It therefore seems most probable
that he has swung over westward from
the direction of Bayonborg, and con
sequently is closing in on Pozorubio
from the north. In that event tiio
chances of surrounding the rebel lead
er are excellent.

MANILA, Nov. 15.—The Thirty-third
infantry, in one of the sharpest two
hour engagements of the war, with an
equal force of Insurgents five miles
from San Fabian, Saturday, lost one
officer (Major John A. Logan, jr.) and
six men killed and two officers and
twelve men wounded. The Americans
captured twenty-nine Filipinos and 100
rifles and found elghty-one Insurgent
dead lying in the trenches and rice
Helds. Many more Filipinos were
doubtless killed or wounded.
General Wheaton was informed that
the enemy was gathering at San Ja
cinto, for the purpose of preventing the
Americans from controlling the rail
road from Dagupan north, whereby
Agulnaldo might retreat, ihe Thirty
third. Colonel Howe commanding, and
a detachment of the Thirteenth, with
a Gatling gun, Howland commanding,
were sent to disperse them. The troops
encountered the worst road ever found
in the island of Luzon. There was a
succession of creeks, whose bridges the
Americans had to stop and repair, and
miry ditches and at certain places men
and horses struggled waist deep in
quagmires. A hundred soldiers had to
drag the Gatling gun purt of the way,
the horses being useless.
The insurgents opened the fight two
miles from San Jacinto, while the lead
ing American battalion was passing a
clump of houses in the midst of a co
coanut grove, knee deep in mud. The
Filipino sharpshooters, hidden In trees
and houses and In a trench across the
road held their fire until the Americans
were close to them, when they began
firing. Other Filipinos opened fire
lrom the thickets rlgnt aud left fur
ther away. The insurgent sharpshoot
ers picked olt the officers first. Five
of the Americans who fell wore shoul

ty-third never wavered.

ipinos from the trees like squirrels and
the Amelcans rushed the trench, leav
ing four dead Insurgents there.
The regiment then deployed under
fire with Major John A. Logan’s bat
talion 111 the center. Major Cronje's
on the right side and Major Marsh on
the left. The skirmish line, which was
a mile long, advanced rapidly, keeping
up a constant fire.
The Filipinos made an unexpected
stand, many of then remaining under
cover until the Americans were within
twenty feet of them. Major Marsh
flanked u small trench full of Insur
gents, surprising them and slaughter
ing nearly all of tnem before entering
the town. The Gatling killed five or
the force holding the bridge and swept
the country beyond the town, driving
about 150 Filipinos Into the hills.
Marsh's battalion, entering the town
first, captured a big battle flag, which
was flying over a convent.
The Insurgents are supposed to have
retreated toward Dagupan. It was Im
possible to pursue them, as the Amer
ican troops were exhausted and their
supply of ammunition was law. The
outposts killed live Filipinos during
the night. The body of a i ilipino lieu
tenant colonel was found among the
killed. The regiment returned to San
Fabian, It being Impossible to get sup
plies over the roads.
