LONDON , Nov. 13. ( New Yolk
World Cablegram. ) The Dally Cliiouv
iclo's correspondent at Mafcklng , under
date of November 3 , C p. in. , says :
"Early Monday morning the eni'iny
opened with shell fire on the town.
After a half hour's firing wo succeed
ed In knocking ono of the enemy s
guns out of action , whereupon t'uo
Macro retired. Shortly afterward they
received reinforcements from Malma-
nl and again atackcd In force , but wcie
again repulsed. On Tuesday the enemy
opened with a heavy shell fire on an
elevation wo hUVo called Canon kopje ,
but the excellence of the fortifications
there prevented any serious damage.
Later In the day the enemy swelled the
town with a ninety-six pounder , a'so
with small field artillery. A few build
Ings were wrecked by a big siege gun
and two killed.
"On , Wednesday the enemy made a
general attack on all sides under cover
of a very heavy shell lire. Wo replied
vigorously from our IIHchklss seven
pounders nnd also poured a raking fire
from our Maxims. The enemy was
eventually driven hack after a very hot
engagement , throughout which all our
men behaved with great spirit. The
casualties on our sldo were slight. The
enemy's loss Is estimated ut fifty killed
besides many wounded.
On Thursday shelling was resumed
at an early hour , the nlncly-six-pound-
cr being again In evidence. Later in
the day the enemy , to the strength of
2,000 , took up a position to the west
ward with the evident Intention of
making a general advance when a
heavy thunderstorm broke out , after
which the Moors retired , having fired
a few volleys from rifles and Maxims.
So far the shell flro bus had a re
markably small effect , though the en
emy's gunnery practice Is excellent.
The absence of a disastrous loss of Iifo
on our sldo Is entirely due to the admi
rable fortifications prepared by Madea-
Powell.
fly agreement with Jotibert on No
vember 1 , wounded women and civil
ians and the railway and telegraph
staff were moved four miles out of

CLOSC CONTEST IN KENTUCKY.
Future Governor It Still Subject of Mis-
| iutc.
LOUISVILLE , Nov. 13. The second
week of uncertainty regarding the re
sult of the balloting for governor of [
Kentucky begins with Httlo prospect t
of immediate relief. The olllclal tj
count has been In progress two days
and from a majority of the 119 coun
ties has narrowed the contest down tea
a nose finish. Moth sides claim the
election of Its ticket , but the estimat
ed plurality of cither docs not exceed
3,000. While the estimates so far re
ceived favor Taylor , the result.may
hinge on the decision given by the
county election commissioners In sev
eral places where charged of irregular
ities are made. Ono of these contests ,
that In Nelson county , has been de
cided adversely to tbo republicans. It
Involves 1,118 votes , nearly as many
as cither oldo claims as Its plurality.

CHATTANOOGA , Tenn. , Nov. 13.
A correspondent of the Iluntsville
Mercury while at Birmingham talked
with Admiral Schlcy and asked him
if ho thought the building of the Nl-
caraguan canal would bo an advantage
to the United States.

sider It Imperative that the canal be
built. It would then enable us to
mobollze our fleets on either coast on
short notice and would facilitate our
defense In case of war and render the
American navy Invincible. And then
It Would open up the way to the Orient ,

MANILA , Nov. 11. The landing of
ho American troops 'at San Fabian ,
Tuesday , was the most spectacular af-
'alr of Its kind since General Shatter's
disembarkation at Balqulrl. The co
operation of the troops and the navy
ivas complete. The gunboats maln-
alncd a terrific bombardment for an
lour , while the troops rushed waist
; leep through the surf under n heavy
but badly aimed rlflo fire from the
insurgent trenches and charged right
uul left , pouring volley after volley
at the fleeing rebels. Forty Filipinos
were captured , mostly noncommissioned
sioned officers. Several Insurgent dead
and five wounded were found In a
building which had suffered consider
ably from the bombardment. The
town wan well fortified. The sand
dunes were riveted with bamboo twen
ty feet thick , which afforded a fine
cover.
When the transports arrived In the
gulf they found the gunboats Prince
ton , Bennlngton and others waiting.
After consultation with General
Wheaton , Commander Knox of the
Princeton and Commander Sheridan
of the Bennlngton anchored two miles
off shore. The gunboats formed a line
Inside , the Helena , Callao and Manila
close In shore.
With the first gun of the bombard
ment small beats were filled rapidly
without confusion by Major Cronlt's
batallon of the Twenty-third Infantry
and Captain Buck's battalion of the
Thirteenth Infantry. While the lines
of boats moved shoreward the gun
boats poured the full force of their
batteries Into the trenches , soon forc
ing the Insurgents to flee through the
burrows dug back of the trenches.
About 200 men held their places until
the keels of the boats grated on the
shore , when their Mauser bullets com
menced to sing overhead. The bat
talions formed in good order , Captain
Buck pursued the insurgents on the
left Into the bamboo thickets.
On the right was a frail footbridge
across the river , leading to the towns.
General Wheaton , personally com
manding , ordered a charge across the
bridge and Captain Howland of his
staff led Coleman's and Elliott's com
panies of the Thirteenth and Shield's
company of the Twenty-third , who be
haved splendidly under their first fire ,
Into the town , which was found to be
deserted except by the aged and some
Spaniards who bad hidden In the buf
falo wallows and who came shouting
delightfully toward the Americans.
Two companies of the Twenty-third
had a skirmish along the Dagupan
road with the retreating Filipinos.
Major Shields of the staff , with his
command , captured several insurgents.
The troops camped In the rain dur
ing the night and In the morning
General Wheaton established his head
quarters In a church , quartered his
men in the houses and sent the cap
tured beyond the outposts with orders
not to return. The roads were found
to be practically Impassable and It Is
believed Agulnaldo has secreted a
yacht In the river Longapo , near Sublc ,
for use In his flight when he finds his
capture Is Inevitable.
Captain Chenowith and Lieutenants
Davis , Van Horn and Bradford , with
two companies of the Seventeenth regi
ment , reconnollering east of Mabala-
cat , attacked and routed a battalion
of Insurgents , killing twenty-nine of
them. Three Americans were wound
ed.

thorlties of Spearflsh using the tailing

per cent of the gold that was original 110

sents returns from all but three of tbo
ninety counties In Nebraska Ante-
lope , McPherson and Sheridan. On
the fuco of these returns Holcomb's

hood of HOOO. Some of the latter
counties , Madison for Instance , revers-
themselves on the vote of last yoar.
This cuts down the estimated major

uncertainty regarding the result of
Tuesday's election In this state is not
likely to be removed for some time.
Both sides still claim victory , the
state chairman ot each party asserting

4,000. Newspaper returns from r pub
lican sources give Taylor a plura .ty of
4.13S , while tho&o from democratic
sources make Goobel's plurality 911.
These latter cover all but thirty-live
precincts In the state , although sev-
oial reports from counties give esti
mated pluralities instead of actual. Of
the missing precincts live are in Louis
ville , which went republican this
year , twenty are In strong republican
counties and ten are in strong demo
cratlc counties.
