four separate engagements with the
insurgents there.
Judging from the firing on these
occasions, Captain Hall estimates tlie
force of each band of the rebels at
from thirty to fifty'. They made no
attempt to charge Captain Hall's
Party. Captain Hall's scout resulted
in the capture of one insurgent offi

district of southen Luzon, highly
praises Captain Hartman and his
troop of the First cavalry, who last
Wednesday morning attacked 400 in
surgents entrenched in the rifle pits
at Buan, Batangas province, and
routed them. General Sumner says
the blow then administered by Cap
tain Hartman is the most severe the
insurgents have suffered, since lie

reasonable c( lerlty. The law provides
tiia: the four principal reports shall
be placed in the hands of the public

liar, rendered it absolutely necessary
to maintain a clerical force adequate
to complete the work within the pre
scribed period. The statisticians made
estimates of the time needed to finish
the particular branch assigned to each

maker — Winner Couilderit Opponent
Vignrou* l.alter Yield*.
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 16.—In one
of the most unsatisfactory prize fights
ever witnessed in this country James
Jeffries proved the victor last night
over Ous Ruhlin. In the fifth round
of what was to have been a twenty
| round struggle Ruhlin wilted and then
surrendered to his peer, to the utter
amazement and disgust of the assem
bled thousands. No one was more
surprised than Jeffries himself, who
asserted that although he had deliver
ed one telling blotv in the second
round ho did not expect to win the vic
tory so easily.
Kuhlin's sole explanation of the out
come of the fight is that lie received
a chance blow which utterly disabled
him and that Jeftiles persisted in
fighting him low. While Ruhlin will
make no absolute charge of Jeffries
having committed a foul he intimates
that he was unfairlj handled and in
jured as a result. Ruhlin received
the report of his seconds in this stand,
who say that his was a hopeless case
after the second round.
When seen in his dressing room af
ter the fight Champion Jeffries said:
‘‘I was certainly surprised at my
easy victory and Ruhlin's amazing de
feat. While it is true that he did not
punch me hard enough during the five
rounds to cause me any alarm, I be
lieved him strong and cautious up to
the moment of his collapse and was
surprised when he quit. I certainly
had no trouble in whipping him and
had the fight gone on the result must
have been the same. Ruhlin was in
accurate and in poor wind and I can
not say that he even had the courage
and force that I expected to ecounter
in him. Ruhlin took a stiff punch
In the stomach in the fourth round.
liich I presume gave him trouble.
Nevertheless I expected him to lose
harder than he did. Ruhlin can
doubiless besi explain his own posi
tion. and as for myself 1 am willing
to meet Sharkey next month and
thereafter to defend as best I can the
title I hold.”
When Ruhlin went into his dress
ing room lie was followed by a gloomy
group of adherents. The defeated
man complained of no parin and mov
ed about without assistance. He
j stated:
j “I believed from the tap of the gong
: that I would win, but as the fight
progressed 1 was beaten down until 1
received a blow in the stomach which
I must say was very low. It may not
have been a foul, but no living man
could have survived it. Jeffries de
parted from the written rules and
from the common regulations of box
ing when ue threw himself upon me
and wrestled rather than sparred. I
believe that had I not received the
stomach punch which ended me in
the fifth round I would have worn
down Jeffries a few rounds later and
beaten him as a matter of endurance.
I am ready to fight him again and be
lieve that in time I will have the op
portunity of showing (hat I can de
feat him.”
Borird of Control Charge* Abuse of State’s
DES MOINES, la,, Nov. 16.—The
second biennial report of the Board
of Control of Iowa institutions was
issued today. An appropriation of
$848,127 is asked, mostly for improve
ment of state buildings.
The report charges that appropria
tions for the State college at Ames
and the State university at Iowa City
have been used for lobbying purposes.
Concerning insane at county asylums,
it is charged they are treated like
animals, male attendants having ac
cess to women’s wards, and that in
one instance six persons were bathed
in the same water.
It is recommended that the Ana

Oklahoma and the fm-llan Territory Urgr*
Their Demand fnr Statehood.
MUSKOGEE, I. T.. Nov. 15.—Single
statehood for Oklahoma and Indian
Territory will be brought to a definite
Issue at the convention catted to meet
in the United States court room here
this afternoon. The date for the con
vention was set at Oklahoma City on
October 22, and three hundred dele
gates from each territory have come
to fight out the issue. The supreme
effort of the two territories to secure
a single statehood form of govern
ment at the next session of congress
will bo made.
The Issue will, it is believed, be.
squarely divided between the political
and commercial interests of the terri
tories. Politicians, as a rule, it is
conceded, are in favor of separate
statehood. This view, as far as indi
cations point before the meeting gath
ers. is opposed by the business men
tf tha territories, who want all ave
nues of trade and industry opened
without restriction, and who profess
to believe that this end coukl not lie
secured in making two states of the
territories. This, it is held, .is espe
cially true in Indian Territory, whose
undeveloped natural resources, they
assert, are as rich as can be found in
any state of the union. Among the
first delegates to arrive the current of
feeling seemed strongly for single
statehood for Oklahoma without de
lay, Indian Territory to be later.
( Aside from speechmaking and the
adoption of resolutions bearing on
the subject, tne convention will likely
provide funds to carry on a system
atic campaign of education for state
hood that shall finally reach congress.
l*ruzil iDfreBHfH Duty «m Ttmt Import**!*
in 1 iag*.
NEW YORK, Nov. 15.—The Rio
Janeiro correspondent of the Heuald
cables: The Chamber of Deputies has
passed a bill increasing the duty on
lloifr imported in hags instead of bar
rels. There was a lively discussion
over the measure. It was contended
that flour imported in bags is apt to
contain dangerous germs, but this as
sertion was combated vigorously.
One member of the budget commit
tee frankly declared that the object
of the bill was to protect United States
producers against the Argentine. Af
ter the votp hud been taken several
deputies said: “The Yankees have
routed the Argentines.”
Public opinion and the newspapers
generally disapprove of the new law,
as it is known that flour from the Uni
ted States arrives in barrels, while
the Argentine product comes in bags.
Newspapers of Buenos Ayres unani
mously condemn the measure and re
monstrances will be filed by the Ar
gentine millers.
It him I Mall Clerk* In Civil Service.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 15—About two
hundred employes in the executive
branch of the rural free delivery ser
vice of the postoflice department will
be brought into the civil service by
an order of President Roosevelt, which,
it is understood, will be issued within
a week or two. These employes are
clerks, special agents and inspectors.
The 6,000 rural free delivery carriers
throughout the country will not be
brought into the civil service under
the same order, but they will be taken
in at some later day. Their civil ser
vice status is to be somewhat different
from that of those first included,
though, the regulations governing them
have not yet been passed upon.

LONDON, Nov. 15.—It is still im

Much wreckage of unidentified ves

DlHIfRfftilrtfted Nehmuktin Panics Away
at Ilia Post in Samoa.
WASHINGTON, Nov. U^-A cable
gram received at the state depart
ment today from Auckland, New Zea
land, announce* the death at Apia,
Samoa, on October 17, of Luther W.
Osborn, United States consul geueral
at Apia.
Mr. Osborn was born in New York
ami appointed to bis present post
from Nebraska July 2t>, 1897. Thus ho
was the principal repceaentatlve ot the
authority of the United States in the
Samoan group in the. troublesome day*
before the partition and it appeared
that he alone of all the foreign rep
resentatives at Apia arejused no op
position. He obtained the confidence
of the natives and the other repre
sentatives of the foreign powers.
The death of Iaft her W. Osborn of
Nebraska, consul general at Apia, Sa
moa, announced today by the state
department, came us a great shock to
the officials. His communications to1
the department have been marked by
thoroughness, clearness and value.
When trouble between the contending
factions of natives arose Judge Osborn,
as acting chief Justice of Hie Samoan
islands, decided every question with
such eminent fairness that both sides
to a controversy were bound to ac-;
eept his decisions. When the excite-;
inent in the islands was at white heat'
and actual warfare between contend
ing native tribes had broken out Con
sul General Osborn remained on the
island, refusing to take refuge on a
man-of-war, and by liis coolness and
courage prevented wholesale slaughter.
The consular service of the United
States contains not a chapter of cool
ness, Intelligent judgment and suceess
eessful diplomacy on the part of any
consul surpassing this chapter of Judge
Osborn's record at Apia.
