General Lawton took a battalion of
tho Fourteenth regiment and two
companies of tho Twenty-first rcgi
tnont this morning to locate tho
masked robel battery and then two
guns of tho Sixth artillery and four
mountain guns were planted against
it at 000 yards' distance. Tho rebels
had a largo gun from which thoy wcro
firing homc-mado cannistor, loaded
with nails, and two smaller guns.
Their shooting was most accurate.
Tho first lot of cannlstcr broke direct
ly in front of Scott's guns and an
other shattered tho leg of a private in
the Fourteenth infantry. Several
shots struck the edgo of the town.
Tho country traversed was very bad,
being mainly lagoons, mud and water
-fringed with bamboos. As soon as
tho fighting opened tho Americans
were attacked by hidden rillemcn on
all sides, even tho amigos, or "friend
ly" natives, in tho houses of thu town
shooting in their rear.
The companies of tho Twenty-first
regiment, skirmishing along tho beach
with niulgo guides found, apparently,
a handful of rebels, who retreated.
Tho men of tho Twenty-first regiment
followed and suddenly tho rebels
opened a terrific firo on tho troops
from tho sides and rear. The soldiers
withdrew to tho water's edge, finding
what shelter they could, and were
picked off rapidly. After their am
munition was nearh, exhausted, the
companies of tho Twenty-first retreat

and rallied tho men.
A Utt'.o group mado a desporat:

and Lieutenants Donovan and Con

down soiuo of tho rebel sharpshooters
from a tree. Finally tholr cartridges
wcro all gone and thoy wero forced to
break through tho enemy's flank,
carrying tho wound'd to tho main
body of tho troops.
Lieutenant Donovan, whoso log was
broken, floundered for a. mllo through
a bog after leading his men in tho
faco of a greatly superior force.
General Lawton coascd fighting un

Two battalions of tho Fourteenth reg

regiment wcro hurried to tho front
and in tho afternoon tho battlo was
resumed. . ,
Tho Monadnock anchored close to
the shore ami her heavy guns poumlod
tho rebels continuously, while the
smaller war ships, steaming along tho
shore, poured bullets from tholr rapid

Tho Filipino forco engaged appears

A few days ago Chicago was startled

About seven years ago sho went to
Chicago, believing that tho city would
furnish better opportunities than a
country town. Tho young woman was
now talented and ambitious. Her ap
plications for employment wero of a
hlghor order than those of most sten
ographers and sho was successful. Tho
world's fair was then In cxlstenco and
sho went thcro for a position, and a
few weeks later alio was nccepted as
a Eccretnry to tho board of lady man
agers nnd was provided with apart
ment.? at the Wlndemere hotel. Whon
the fair ended she still found lucrative
work. Then tho presidential campaign
camo on and Miss Ilurko became sten
ographer for Mark Hanna, work in
which alio was regarded an expert.
Hut tho bounding health which sho
DAVID J. WILE.
fiad drawn from tho country life of her
girlhood began to fado away. The
delicate color of her checks died out
and her step becamo less elastic as
the weeks dragged by. Her friends
noticed tho chango in her, but ns usual
Bhc said it was nothing; It would soon
pass away; it was but a temporary de
rangement of tho systom, alio thought,
which would soon yield to exercise and
hyglono. At this tlmo sho was living
with Mrs. George Doano nt C339 Cham
plalc avenue. Mrs. Doano had becomo
acquainted with tho ambitious young
woman, struggling alone for a liveli
hood in the great city and had Invited
her to make hor homo with tho Doano
family, an invitation which Miss
Burke gladly nccopted. Tho close re
lationship which grew botweea them
ls best expressed by tho farewell let
ter of the suicide, which was address
ed to Mra. Doane as "Dear Mother."
When her hpnlth failed so greatly ns
to Intorfero with hor work nnd to be
n subject of constant conrcrn among
her frlcmta Miss Ilurko consented to
professional examination and ndvlco
and learned to her dismay that sho
was suffering with an abdominal
tumor, which would rnuso her death If
not removed. From that tlmo tho hap
piness1 died out of Mnhcl Iturko's llfo
nnd the light died out of her eyes.
Constantly haunted by the intelli
gence the doctorH had given her sho
set about making preparations for tho
operation which tho doctors said was
liuprratlvp. Sho know It would be
ctMlly, that sho would ho weeks, per
haps months, In a hospital after It
war. over, nnd shn had not enough
money to meet tho expenses. Unwill
ing that Mim. Doane should pay nil or
tho charges, she went to her parents'
home In Coloma, Mich., to toll them
her story nnd Hook financial aid. Ac
companied by Mrs. Donuo sho made
tho sorrowful Journey to tho home,
which had never been a home to her.
lttvth her parents wore thoro, hut her
mother would not hear her out. Ah

soon ns tho unfortunate girl began hor
talo Mrs. Hurke, It is said by tho dead
girl's friends, at onco suspected an
other causo for hor condition and did
not hesltato to any so.
"Is it this way you havo como hack
hero to dlsgraco us?" sho Is aald to
havo asked her.
For nlno months MIbb Durko lay in
tho hospital and when alio flnnlly did
return to hor Woodlawn home, with
sunken checks and pnlo faco, sho was
not entirely recovered. Indeed, up to
tho day of hor death sho waB under
treatment by a physician, for tho ex
pected completo recovery never camo
nbout. This fact saddened her wholo
life, though aho gradually regained
her former good looks and went about
quietly in tho society In which sho had
been accustomed to move before her
illness. Sho was bright nnd clover, a
good musician nnd a strikingly pretty
Kin, nun mereioro wns much sought
nfter u"nd had half a dozon admirers.
n-.it to Mrs. Doane and other Intlmato
friends eho confided upon her return
from the hospital that sho would never
marry nnd that sho would never allow
any young man to fall in love with her
because ahe could only turn him awny
If ho sought hor hand at last.
On this point sho wns firm, although
her women friends argued that sho
should not dony herself tho pictures
of society altogether. Sho went to
social events of every naturo In Wood
lawn, but never gave encouragement to
any of her aJlmlrora but once, n young
man whom sho was forced to "give
up" on account of her derangement.
Later thcro camo Into her llfo n ray
of sunshlno nnd hope. David J. Wile,
the nttornoy, brought it. Their man
ner of meeting was clearly In tho re
lationship of attorney nnd client. Tho
young woman nail become Imbued
with tho idea that sho had cause for
n suit against n physician for malprac
tice. It boro upon tho oporatlon she
had undergone. Sho went to tho of
flco of A. S. Trudo to seek his couil
sol. That was moro than a year ago.
It was then sho mot Wllo nnd Mr,
Trudo advised her to allow him to
handle her caao. Sho told him of her
case, concealing no portion of It. He
was informed of tho nature of tho op
oration, a necessary contingent upon
tho bringing of tho suit. WUo is said
to have allowed hor to believe that
thore wero aomo hopos for her to re
cover. Thoy wero frequently in each
other's company regarding tho matter.
Their acquaintance ripened Into friend
ship and when flnnlly Wile hod per-
fitinilei! her that she had no ease tie con
tinued to call upon hor. He had
found a lond of sympathy between
them. They wero both lovers of tnuulo
and thus In MiIr plntonlc sort of way
they enjoyed each other's companion
ship. Wllo seldom called upon Miss
Uurke after dark, hut neighbors sny
that ho wai nt hor homo almost ovory
Hiindny, Sho novor wont out with
him, It U said, farther perhaps than
occasionally to n nolghlior's house.
Hevoinl or tho residents In tho vicinity
had mado tho acquaintance of Wllo,
but nuno of them know that ho was
married. Months passed by nnd It
wns no secret thnt Miss Ilurko's friend
ship for Wllo h.id ripened Into lovo.
She possessed for him, her friends bo
IIpvciI, tho pure lovo on which Plato
hinged a philosophy. No argiimonta
could over Induce them to bcltovo
Yot thero wns a premonition among
them thnt her courtship would result
In more eorrow and tho same confidnnt
to whom Miss Hurko had confessed her
former pang told her n fow weeks ngo
that slip would cxperlonco such an

"Hut Mr. Wllo knows everything."
Miss Hurko rppllpc. "Ho has known

Ours Is n mental attachment."
Then camo tho story to tho enrs of
Mla Ilurko that Wllo was already

Thereupon sho sought out his wlfo
and learned from hor lips that tho

NEW YORK'S WOMAN BURQLAR.
According to tho polico of Lons Is
land City, burglary Is tho latest pro
fession adopted by tho gentler sex.
They base their belief upon tho case
of Mary Seaman, with many allasci,
who when arrested on suspicion near
tho Thirty-fourth street forry landing
In Long Island City, was found to havo
In her possession n big, mature and
experienced "Jimmy," such ns is used
by tho moot expert cracksmen. The
"Jimmy" was nearly a foot and a half
long. It boro marks of uso, and the
woman could glvo no satisfactory ex
planation of hnvlng it in hor posses
sion. Tho Instrument Is largo and
heavy enough to break open nlmost
any door, and showcases could bo en
tered by means of it almost without
effort. In tho woman's skirt was
found what tho polico describe as "a
shoplifter's pocket," a bag sown Into
ttio skirt about eighteen Inches long
nnd a foot wldo. It was In this "shop
lifter's pockot" that tho Jimmy vu
concealed. The woman, suspected of
being a professional burglar, or sneak
thief, was arrestod while loitering
near tho ferry bouse. Detectives Kel
ly and Maginn hadA noticed that sho
carried n basket, and as the crowds
camo from tho boats edged botweon
persons and walkod by their sides.
When arrested the woman claimed
that sho was soiling pencils, and a
fow of them were in tho big covered
basket. Dut her replies wero so eva
sive and contradictory that tho do
tectlvcs took her to tho station houso.
When tho jimmy was found tho woman
said aho had found it In the street.
Sho could not tell whoro, nclthor would
she tell whoro 8ho lived, except by Bay
ing that she lived in Sixth street, but
had forgotten tho number. Sho gave
