The first shot was fired at San
Juan bridge by a Nobrrska guard.
For the past few weeks the insur
gents have attempted to force buok
our out posts and onlythu coolness
of the men prevented hostilities.
At last the shot was fired and thu
ball opened at eight thirty Satui-
day evening. Bugles called to
arms , and amidst the sound of load
sharing the touts , companion wore
stationed at thuir different pouts ,
Camp dantn Mesa is situated upon
a hill adjunct to Manila and over
looking the Pasig river. This
knoll is surrounded by old Spanish
block houses and barracks and gave
excellent opportunity for insurgents
to lire from three directions , which
they did , The Fillipiuos hive ,
upon two occasions before , taken
Santa Mesa Hill , when under Span
ish rule , and massacred some five
hundred Spanish soldiers and
seemed confident they could do so
again. Saturday afternoon it was
reported that quite a number of
mountaineers in full war regalia ,
consisting of a crimson broach clout
and long spotirs , wore seen at the
insurgent Headquarters These fol
lows wore to be mod to finish up
the wounded when the natives had
takou the camt ) . All ninlit the
American soldiers lay sleeping in
the underbrush waiting the dawn ,
and the Fillipinos wasting amuni-
tion in the darkness. The sun
rose and far to the loft and right
the war ships turned loose their
dreaded guns upon the block hous-
OK within range and heathen mou
going to their now republic by the
liundrods. At San Jnan btidgo
they thought victory was theirs ,
and with a tow cannon of the
joriod of 1778 , wore throwing
slugs at the Nebraska camp. How
they yelled , "Vivi Fillipino Rn.
publioa" ! Two guns of the Utah
ulillory knocked the little gun into
smithereens and ltUlopublioa" was
heard no more. General Otis then
ordered the companion to uhargo
block house number five , which was
taken. Twenty two inllvcs killed
ind two Ainerioins wounded. A
charge wad then gallantly led by
Col. Stotsenburg , of Nebraska ,
upon San Juan bridge and thu lingo
powder magazine was ours. Ten
nessee roenforccd , commenced
bushwhacking and FillipinoH could
not run fast enough. San Juan
cathedral and barracks word takou ,
all the bamboo villages fired and
the insurgent forces retreating to
the roar. Suudav niurht the sur
rounding country was a blazing
mass , and many an old enfeebled
native was pondering upon the
greatness of "Los Americano1' and
the foolishnosn at his raco. Poor ,
harmless wrotch. Monday morn
ing the road leading up to the water
works wore crowded. Capturud
cainages , driven by American sol
diers , cili/.eiiH and stray goldiors
from commands in the city , all
tioading toward the frond , deter
mined to be present during the
capturing of the water works , and
may bo have a chance to kill a
rabbit or two. Chitmmon wandered -
ed around picking up oirtridgoe ,
returning heavy laden with a rack
et store outfit and bushels uf empty
shells. Correspondents and kodack
fiends all busy seeking information
and taking shots at the boys bury
ing dead heathen , three to a do/.en
in a trmioh. At noon Nebraska ,
ono battalion of Tennessee and two
companies of Colorado advanced
toward the water works naturally
entrenched by largo rooks , giving
the heathen plenty of ahiinuu to
duok their nuts. The Utah aitil-
tiry had advanced during the night
and their shells Eont the iupureonlri
scudding over the country toward
the mountains. Many were dropped -
pod before reaching u retreat au < l

can see. Reports are that three to
four thousand insurgents wore
killed. They weru driven back
from all around the city and quiet-
