HIS HORSE COVERED WITH BLOOD
Blajor Marchwith Detachment of Thirty-
Third Regiment , Overtaken Insurgent
Tarty After n Long Pursuit Through
VIGAN , Luzon , via Manila , June 3.
Major March , with his detachment
of the Thirty-third regiment , over
took what is believed to have been
Aguinaldo's party on May 19 at La
Gat , about 100 miles northeast of VI-
gan. The Americans killed or wound
ed an officer , supposed to be Agui
naldo , whose body was removed by
his followers. Aguinaldo had 100
men , Major March 125.
The American commander reached
Laboagan , whither Aguinaldo had
made h'is headquarters since March 6 ,
on May 7. Aguinaldo had fled seven
hours before , leaving all the beaten
trails and traveling through the for
est , along the beds of streams. To
ward evening , May 19 , Major March
struck Aguinaldo's outpost about a
mile outside of La Gat , killing four
Filipinos and capturing two. From
the latter he learned that Aguinaldo
had camped there for the night , al
though exhausted and half starved.
Major March's men entered La Gat
on the run. They saw the Insurgents
scattering Into the bushes or over the
.plateau. A thousand yards beyond
the town , on the mountain side , the
figures of twenty-five Filipinos , dressed -
* ed in white , with their leader on a
gray horse , were silhouetted against
the sunset. The Americans fired a vol
ley and saw the officer drop from his
horse. His followers fled , carrying
The Americans , on reaching the
spot , cauglt the horse , which was
richly saddled. Blood from a badly
wounded man was on the animal and
on the ground. The saddle bags contained -
tained Aguinaldo's diary and some
private papers , including proclama
tions. One of these was addressed :
"To the Civilized Nations. " It pro
tested against the American occupa
tion of the Philippines. There were
also found copies of Senator Bever-
idge's speech , translated into Spanish ,
nd entitled "The Deathknell of the
Filipino People. "
Major March , believing that the Fil
ipinos i had taken to a river which is
a tributary to the Chlco , followed it
for two days , reaching Tiao , where he
learned that a party of Filipinos had
descended the river May 20 on a raft ,
with the body of a dead or wounded
man upon a litter , covered with palm

command , shoeless and exhausted , and
picked out twenty-four of the freshest
est men , with whom he beat the sur
rounding country for six days longer ,
but without finding any trace of the
insurgents. The Americans pushed
on and arrived at Aparri May 29.
The officer shot was either Agui
naldo or his adjutant , and as the horse
was richly caparisoned it is a fair
presumption that it was Aguinaldo.

Louis Klopsch Makes Statement of
Scenes In England's Dependency.
BOMBAY , June 3. Louis Klopsch
of New York , publisher of the Chris
tian Herald , who arrived here May
34 and started at once on a tour of
the famine stricken districts , has re
turned , after traveling through the
most severely , smitten portions of the
Bombay presidency , Including Gujer-
rat and Barolda. He makes the fol
lowing statement regarding his obser
"Everywhere I met the most shock
ing and revolting scenes. The famine
camps have been swept by cholera and
smallpox. Fugitives , scattering in all
directions and stricken in flight , were
found dying in the fields and roadside
ditches. The numbers at one relief
station were increasing at the rate of
10,000 per day.
"At Godhera there were 3,000
deaths from cholera within four days ,
and at Dohad 2,500 in the same period.
The hospital death rate at Godhera
and Dohad was 90 per cent. The con
dition of the stricken simply beggars
description. Air and water were im
pregnated with an intolerable stench
of corpses. At Ahmedabad the deolh
rate In the poor house was 10 per
cent. Every day I saw new patients
placed face to face with corpses. In
every fourth cot there was a corpse.
"The thermometer read 115 in the
shade. Millions of flies hovered
around the uncleaned dysentery pa-
tients. I visited the smallpox and
cholera wards at Viragam. All the
patients were lying on the ground ,
there being no cots. Otherwise their
condition was fair.
"I can fully verify the reports that
the vultures , dogs and jackals are de
vouring the dead. Dogs have been
seen running about with children's
limbs in their jaws.
"The government is doing its best ,
but the native oiriclals are hopelessly
and heartlessly inefficient. Between
the famine , the plague and the chol
era the condition of Bombay presi
dency is now worse than it has been
at any previous period in the nine
teenth century. Whole families have
been blotted out. The spirit of the
people has been broken and there may
be ' something still worse to come
when the monsoon breaks. "
