Some of the outcry against the pen
sion department comes from a peculiar
soarce, the following being a sample
Nebraska case: A Missourian tempora
rily residing in Pawnee county arrived
here (Washington City) tea days ago.
' He came to see why his pension claim
bad not been allowed. He had left home
with exactly enough money to pay his
tare to Washington. Arriving here be
was escorted to the pension department
and there learned that his "claim" had
not been allowed because he had no
discharge from the army, and was on
record as a deserter. He appeared aar
prissd to learn that this was any'bar to
the allowance of a pension, and admit
ted that he had found fault with
the pension department through mmc-
cessrve adauaistrauona He Had no
CEonao to offer for the charge against
him on the record. It took him one
boar to find out what he had known for
thirty-f ve years, and he spent the next
.ten days begging money and transports
tien to get oat of town. It is certain
that aaeh misguided individuals do
mach to stir np local sentiment against
rasjnn commissioners, it being ddncult
for neighbors to judge of the worthta
of the case. P. A. Harrison.

Mr Dear Father: It is some time
since I have addressed a letter directly
to you. I have thought the joint family
letter would reach all of you sooner, and
this one is intended for the others also.
On Feb. 15 we left Manila Bay on the
S. S. Yenua Our boats had been loaded
for more than two weeks to take us to
Mindanao, but General Bell's expedi
tionary brigade was decided on to invade
the Camarines Provinces and as we were
ready to go somewhere, we were assigned
to it More than a week previous to this
our Second Batallion had gone to Le
gaspi in Albay province to aid a batal
lion of the 47th which was reported be
sieged in a convent
The 45th regiment joined us just at
the entrance to the bay. Our fleet con
sisted of the Venus, Castellano and Sal-
vadaro carrying the 40th, or rather two
batallions of it The Tartar, carrying
the 45th. The Athenian, carrying horses
and detachments of cavalry and artillery,
the dispatch boat Baltimore and the
It had been intended to enter Gubat
just as we rounded the south end of the
island of Luzon, but the sea was so
rough that the ship's captain did not
dare attempt the entrance between two
narrow reefs. So the entire fleet went
on to the Gulf of Albay and the next
day, Feb. 18, the Venus went back to
Gubat, where we expected to secure
some cascoes to land in. As we came
near the shore we saw crowds of nativea
No Americans had landed here, but an
Englishman has lived here for twenty
years and it was believed the natives
were friendly, and so it proved. Three
small boatloads of soldiers went ashore
and were the center of about two thou
sand wondering natives who crowded
about eager with curiosity. We stayed
only long enough to secure two thirty
foot sail boats. No cascoes were to be
had. Tbe next day we joined the fleet
in the Gulf of Albay.
The fleet arrived in the bay of San
Miguel the morning of Feb. 20 with
orders for all troops except officers in
charge of ships and a guard of ten men
from each company to be in the small
boats at 8 a m. We had been obliged
to anchor about two miles from shore
on account of shallow water. Much to
my disgust I was put in charge of the
Venus and Castellano. The Baltimore
and the launch from the Marietta soon
came along side and took our strings of
boats and pulled away for the beach.
What followed I learned later, but will
tell it conscutively. Our batallion, the
1st, under Major McNamee landed at
Barceloreta; the tide was out and the
men waded through mud waist deep.
They were pretty heavily loaded, each
man carrying his blanket roll, canteen,
haversack with three days' rations in it
his belt with one hundred rounds of
ammunition and his rifle. We met no
resistance at Barceloneta but found the
place totally deserted. Here they se
cured two guides and started for Neuva
Cacerea This town, the capital of the
North and South Camarines provinces,
was the objective point and it was pro
posed to enter it from five directiona
Our batallion- had reached the vicinity
of Libmanan, a march of nearly eight
miles, when they discovered armed na
tives ahead. The major sent forward
the gnide to ask for a surrender but the
insurrectos sent back word that they
wanted to fight So the column was de
ployed into skirmish line, the four com
panies extending about six hundred
yards, and the advance begun. A line
of intrenchments was 60on discovered
and the fire was brisk. About three
hundred yards had been gained, when
the left of the line failed to continue the
advance and Major McNamee went to
discover the trouble. He found B com
pany under Captain Kendrick in a hand
to hand conflict with bolo men. They
were soon dispersed and the batallion
got into the town just before dark after
a hard fight of three quarters of an
hour. Thewounded were brought up and
it was found that seven were hors de
combat Lt Galleher, the batallion ad'
jutant, was shot through the abdomen
and of the six enflsted men, three had
gunshot wounds and three were cut by
boloa Lt Galleher died the second day
after. The enlisted men are all doing
It was too dark to discover the lass of
the enemy that night but the next
morning sixty -five dead natives and
thirteen wounded ones were found on
the field. We have aiaee learned from
friendly natives that the total loss of the
enemy in dead and wounded was two
hundred. Fifteen Mausers and thirty
Remingtons were captured here besides
a great number of boloa spears and
bows and arrows. Perhaps yon do not
know what a bolo ia It is the knife
that is universally used here in place of
an ax, hatchet bntcher-knife, cleaver
and sword. Those carried by the insur
rectos are lighter than those used in
domestic life and are somewhat modified
in she pa They have a heavy blade,
thick at the back and ground very sharp.
The length varies (com a foot to eighteen
The morning of the 24t oar fcfltaUion
entered Neuva Caeerss si abont the
same time with four other oolamas one
other of onr regiment and three of the
45th. It wm expected that the most
decided stand would be made here, but
Libmanan bad erideofiy scared them
out and tbe town was completely de
serted. After vesting hare a day Major
McNamee was ordered to aaarch to the
Bay of Lagonoy, part of bis command
to go to the north and part to tbe aoaihj
of Mount Ysarac. Companies A and B
nnasr Captains Kendrick and KaUy
went to tbe north and' Major McNamee
with companies C and D went to the
aonth. The trail to the soath was roagh
and over very many streams, but there
was a Spanish gnide who was aure of
the way, so no mistake was made in the
trail. When ont abont a day and a half,
when about to ford a mountain stream
about waist deep, the advance guard was
fired on by the enemy from the opposite
bank, which was steep and obscured by
undergrowth. Major's horse was hit
twice and his bugler beside, him was
wounded in the shoulder. They were
unable to see the opposing force, but
the men could not stand there in the
river and stand the rifle fire, for it was
found later that the insurrectos had two
brass pieces from which they were firing
scrap iron, so a charge was ordered and
the enemy driven from bis position. A
stop was made only long enough to care
for tbe wounded, four, when the column
hurried on to reach Tigoon for it was
almost dark. It was not ascertained
now many riupinos were lulled or
At Tigoon Sergeant Heedy, who had
been wounded in the abdomen, died and
was buried in a corner of the old church
About noon next day the two compa
nies reached San Jose where they were
to meet Capt Kendrick's column. But
the other column was not there nor did
it arrive the next day, so the major de
cided to go on to the Barrio de Lazonoy,
leave his wounded, get rations and come
back to meet Capt Keodriok.
I shall have to go back a little now.
When the troops disembarked from the
Venus I chafed under my orders to re
main aboard, but there was no remedy.
The next day, 21st I was ordered to
take a boat's crew to Barceloneta where
the troops had landed and get off a sail
boat that was stuck in the mud. On
account of adverse wind and low tides
I was nearly twenty-four hours doing
this. When I got back to the ship I
was ordered to take a guard of twenty
men ashore at another point and super
intend the unloading of horses from a
catamaran. We were in the water up to
our necks most of the time and as for
wet feet, that was an old story. There
are no docks in this part of the world.
or this part of the island, so when the
small boat touches the sand yon get out
and walk with the water nearly to your
knees, the ships being obliged to stand
out half a mile or mora
When I returned from this duty I
reported on board tbe Tartar for orders
and there learned of the Libmanan fight
and Lt Galleher's death, which was
quite a shock, for I knew him very well
and he was universally liked. There I
received orders to take the Venus around
the south end of the island to Pasacao,
a town on the other side of the neck into
which the island narrows just here, and
there ration for one month, two compa
nies of the 45th which had marched
across the neck. It was a run of about
350 miles and we had delightful weather.
We landed the supplies with a good deal
of labor through the surf saw another
deserted town, save for the troops before
mentioned, and put to sea again at 4
p. m., Feb. 27, two hours ahead of my
ordera By these I was now to proceed
to tbe Bay of Lagonoy and take aboard
Major McNamee's batallion, thence back
to San Miguel bay and report to Gen.
Batea We were to arrive at the Barrio
de Lagonoy at noon on the 28th, but
bad weather coming around the south
end of the island made us four hours
late. We reach onr anchorage a few
hours before dusk but could distinguish
no troops in the little village half a mile
distant, but a good many natives were
moving about As I had only thirty
men aboard ship I decided to wait until
next morning before attempting to land,
which my orders did not require nor
expect me to do. But naturally I was
concerned because the msjor did not
appear. The next morning no troops
were to be seen and in spite of the fact
that the few natives we could see seemed
anxious to keep out of sight for they
sneaked from one bouse to another with
an eye on the boat Well, I took twenty-
five men and went ashore, formed a line
of skirmishers in the water and took the
town, with abont five sick men in it
The rest had all fled at the approach of
our boat We went to the edge of town
toward San Jose and after an hour saw
the head of Major McNamee's column
approaching. It had been nine days
since I had seen or heard from them
directly so I was glad to see them and
they were out of rations, so they were
glad to see ma
