North Adams, Mass., Aug. 7- Shortly after midnight a special officer from Washington awoke Corporal Richard O'Brien at his home in this town to place him Under arrest oh the charge of perjury in his-testimony before the senate committee last May regarding  affairs in the. Philippines on a bench warrant from the supreme court of the District of Columbia. O'Brien took his arrest quietly and said that-he expected to prove every statement that he had made "before the senate; -committee and that he would call several witnesses to confirm-what he-had said. It is expected he will be taken to Washington today. O'Brien was corporal of Company M, Twenty-sixth regiment, of which Captain' McDonald of Boston was commanding officer, and O'Brien made severe charges against his captain,' to which Captain McDonald replied in a vigorous denial. Senator Lodge was quoted at the time as saying that prosecution of O'Brien would follow. Dr.Gill Fhysjcian&Surg'eon Specialist 1138 Maid St. FINANCIAL Hartford, Ct. Hours-9 to 11 a. m.'

Manila, Aug. 7. - A detachment of the' Thirteenth infantry engaged .and defeated a band of ladrones near Ma-rivelez, 'Bata.an province, Luzon, Monday. The ladrones had 'looted a village located on a military reservation, and the detachment of. the Thirteenth was dispatched against them at the request of the people and officials of the village. The: ladrones .opened on the soldiers ,froni cover. The. Americans replied to this fire and quickly dispersed the Filipinos. From records captured by men of j the Thirteenth it was learned that the 1 ladrones were members of the Rati- I punan society. The framework and j organization of this branch of the Kali- ! punan extends through the provinces of Bataam Bulacan,-Uizal and Cavite. The 'movement.- however, is not re-, garded'seriously: It has no leaders of prominence, and "the men are without arms. The native constabulary is operating actively to destroy the organization, and the-police of Manila have arrested twenty persons suspected of plotting With the Katipunan. Numerous arrests have also been made in adjoining provinces. General; Cldaffee will leave Manila next Monday on board the United States nrhiy transport' Ingalls for his fln.il tour of the Philippine Islands.
