Hint wandering regiment of Ncbnmkn
volunteers IIMH taken up an abode iif
trmifllcnt as peace. Tbey liavo lived
foi' tbo paBt three days In tbo nlpii
liuta lining the road between tbo two
towiiH. The shelter IB opportune , for
the rulny season IH opening up with al
most nightly inanlfeslatlonB , and tbo
boys have several times endured the
inlHcrles of the deluge , with nothing
"between" but a scanty poncho.
The inou are expecting orders to go
ahead , yet have not given up hopes ol
lielng relieved. The hope , however ,
seems a faint one , nnd doomed to dis
appointment. Great expectations wore
raised and dashed by the recent Filipino
pine commission farce , In which the
two rebel officers asked tin armistice
Instead of signifying some more dell-
ultp Intention of surrender. The sooner
thlH thing Is ended the better we will
bo pleased. We are tired of killing
and being killed. At home the fond
hope may bo Indulged that the trouble
In the Philippines Is over , but In ycari
to come , when this regiment Is but n
name , the press will be filled from time
to time with stories of rupture with
rebel bands of Killpinos.
In coming up upon Cnluinplt after
that memorable Sunday , our regiment
WJIB given n somewhat easier position.
For the first time our boys wore taken
In from the rapidly swinging right
flank to a middle position , which did
not compel them to cover so much
ground. The lighting was easier , too ,
but it was In this advance that Legg
and Hanson received their mortal
wounds , and Majors his very serious
one.The trenches on the other Bide of the
river , which must bo crossed before
reaching Cnluinplt , were wonders In
heir way. They were evidently built
o bo Impregnable- Hold artillery.
With n basis of earth , they were ribbed
ogethcr by railroad ties , and armored
With sheet steel nnd railroad Iron.
They extended In series , occupying n
rontago upon our line of ndvance of
jotccn two and three miles. With port
loleB snugly burrowed through nnd
veil supplied with a store of ammunl-
lon and "chow , " the swarms of Insur
ants who lined up behind these young
ortresses probably thought to make
ho American advance decidedly un-
ilcnsant. They pulled up the railroad
rack on both sides of the stream , tore
> ut n span of the Iron bridge , nnd cut-
ing down the trees nnd undergrowth
vblch obstructed their view of the
country over which wo must march ,
iwaltcd the coming of their enemy by
Well , when the generals got every-
hlng fixed they pushed their infantry
ip to the river bnnk right under the
lose of the Iron-bound works. No one
leedcd to tell the men to Ho down.
They snuggled down Into the dirt like
'dust to duat , returning" some did ;
others were only more or less Boroly
vounded. The insurgents did nil the
Jhooang then. The sun wns n little
vuy up. Somebody Indulging In n
houghtloHS fiction snld that It occurred
n the "cool of the morning , "
Following close upon the Infantry
nine every piece of nrtlllery thnt could
jo put into nctlon , the "three-two"
; uns , the quick-tire Nordcnfeldt , and
npld-flre Hotcbklsa thundcrcrs , seven
jr eight in all. Training the first
hreo-tow" ( three nnd two-tenths Inch
> ore ) upon the trenches , the gunner
sprang aside nnd pulled the strhif-
'boom ! "
It wns the first American voice of
the morning. It said , "Buenos dhus"
o the rebels , with shnrp candor. Some
of them stopped firing as the boys
siuiKKled along the brow of the river
mnk. and fired volleys at the smoke
of the gun. Our long akirmlsh line ,
lowever , hnd nwnkenpd. The boom
of tbo big gun had sot it on fire. Vol-
eys began to rip up the river , and all
the way down again , while all of our
juns turned in to hammer nwny at the
nsurgont works , but without mnklng
UUQb of nn Impression upon the sturdy
The Infantry men seemed to under
stand when they got the order , "rapid
fire" tlwt they wore expected to go
over the river nnd drive the "ntggora"
out. Tor a tlmo the nir wns filled
with ronrlng , the Filipinos answering
with volley tumbling over volloy.
Then our men began to go across tbo
river , some with full equipment , others
stripped of their clothes , holding only
to their guns and belts. The water
was shallow and there wns little need
When the rebels saw the Americans
como scrambling up their steep bank ,
they fired and lied , unable to face such
n Krlmlv determined charge. But
Btrnnge to sny. fully half of the rebels ,
too fully occupied to notice the num
bers croanlng the river , were caught
by our attacking force Inside thofr
tronchofl , and many wore shot down
before they could get away.
It IB said thnt flvo Nebraska men
wore among the first to ford the rlvor.
As they cllmbod the opposite bank ,
they Bhouted back through the din of
the firing for tholr comrade to shoot
the "niggers" as they chased them out.
The work was ono of n series of short
ones , and our boys entering around ono
end llnnk sent the surprised rebels
Hying out by the other flnnk and into
the nro of our men upon the opposite
bunk of the narrow stream.
It wns n sorry day ror the rebels
probably the BCOHO of their most
crushing defeat. Wo have trusted that
it would do much to discourage them ,
Hoeing nil their laborious efforts so
soon overthrown , nnd so ninny of
the-ir number killed nnd wounded.

The work of putting In the founda
tion of the Standard Hoot Sugar fac
tory at Amos wan completed Monday
nnd as the steel plates and beams for
the building itBolf are already on the
track at the grounds the building will
soon begin to loom up , the largest
sugnr fnctory In Nebraska.
The now fnctory , which will have
double the capacity of either the Grand
Island or Norfolk factories , Is situated
two miles north and half a mile west
of Ames , west of the place known as
the Mills farm. The object In locating
It there instead of In town was to have
It as centrally located for the farmers
as possible , thus saving the time nnd
expense of the company nnd the farm-
is rs In hauling beets over a road some-
Limes not in the best condition. Ground
was broken for the building ns soon
us the weather would permit , which
was the first week In April. The Union
Pacific railroad built n side track from
the east end of the Ames yard , a mile
ind a half north , then northwesterly
iilong the side of the cutoff ditch a
inllo nnd a half to the factory , and
[ nit In several switch tracks nt the
dto. The Elkhorn extended Its line
from the Union Pacific crossing , a milo
east of Ames , to Ames , connecting
with the Union Pacific switch. All
Lhc material and machinery can thus
1)0 laid down directly at the site , thus
saving considerable expense In haul
The mnin building Is 300x100 feet.
The foundation consists of piles drlveu
Into the ground twenty-five feet , then
cut oft eight feet below the Biirfnce ,
mnklng a platform about ten feet
square. Between 1,800 and 2,000 plies
wore used for the foundation of this
nnd other buildings , the platforms of
pIloB being about ten feet apart. On
thorn was placed a plllnr of stool
welded together with concrete eight
foot In height. The buildings , except
.1 few of the smaller ones , will bo
entirely fireproof , no wood being used
In their construction , the floors being
rf concrete and the framework of steel

There are ten companies In the regl-

ivas allowed to vote. Of the thirty
jfllcors only twenty-six availed them-

the method of selecting the officers
, t has been rumored thnt some of the
defeated candidates may institute n
contest on the ground that none of the
company officers who cast votes have
been examined. The law provides that
an officer must pass an examination
before he is entitled to a commission.
However , the present company ofllcors
are onjdylug all the rights and privi
leges of regularly commissioned offi
cers. As the vote on the different
candidates was by no means close , it

Our force has been much overworked ,
libut nevertheless has mot with every
3mergency. Major Crosby has put up
excellent tent wards , and the purveyor ,
Major Corblscer , has furnished nbuncl-
int supplies of till kinds at short no

lisadvantages we labor under , being so
far from our base , I can safely say
: hat the success In meeting all require

The Filipino wounded will receive
the same kind of attention they have
in the past , no efforts being spared to
make them comfortable and give them
svory chance for recovery.

NEW YORK. Juno 12. Not long
after ox-Presldont Chester A. Arthur
tiled n fund was started among his
friends to erect a statue to his mem-
Dry. So little noise was made over
live work that it sank out of sight
3f the general public and many per
sons will bo surprised to hear that the
statno will bo unveiled in Madison
square next Tuesday afternoon.
When the subscriptions had reached
525,000 the committee deemed the sum
mlficlent nnd gave the order for a
Jronze statue to George E. BIssell , the
sculptor. The statue represents Gen-
jral Arthur seated , with his eye glass
es in one hand and a book in the
Jther. He appears as though Just
ibout to rise from the chair , which
s a fac simile of one he used when In

hat two of the men had been seen
Thursday nt the Bar C ranch , owned

lorth of Casper and about thirty miles

Ives wore soeu by Al Flood , assistant
oremnn for Tlsdale , who recognized

irothers. The men wore on foot nnd
vero jaded and apparently much worn
by their long struggle to evade capture.
The ofllcers in pursuit arc In the
amo region with the fugitives and
heir capture is reasonably certain.
Extreme care must bo exorcised , how-

of the ambush by which Sheriff Hnzeu
