MANILA, April 12.— It is supposed that many of the rebels who attacked General MacArthur's line of communication and who were repulsed by the troops commanded by General Wheaton were natives who entered the region in the gniseof lrieudlies. They had seemingly secreted arms in several places and fired on the Americans from the bushes at so close a range that they could be heard talking. One of the Filipinos yelled in English: " We will give yon d— d Americans enough of this before we are through." The rebels undermined the railroad at Marilao and uuspiked the rails in an effort to wreck a train, while the railroad gang participated in the fight. The rebels' work was discovered and repaired before a train arrived. General Wheaton is preparing to punish the Filipinos. The military gunboats Rapi'i- m and Lcguna de Bay have succeede. i entering the Santa Cruz river and have captured a small unarmed Spanish gunboat and three launches which they discovered there. The military gunboat Oeste has brought : J2 rebel wounded, 1 dead Filipino and ft wounded Americans to the hospital. Lawton's command captured the villages of P. ijaijan and Lnmban yesterday, with some resistance at the latter place. The mouth of the river, commanded by Lumbau. was effectually blocked against the entrance of the gnnboats. Shells from the - Laguna de Bay drove i most of the insurgents in flight up the mountain side. A small force remained in an old church, offering resistance until it was rushed by the troops. About 50 were captured and several killed. There was one casualty among tho Americans, that being an arm wound. Fifty Thousand Americans Needed. While it is probable that there is an end to the big engagements in the Philippines between the Americans and the Filipinos, the war is not over by any means. It is the universal opinion among army men here that it will require the presence of 50,000 American troops to occupy the territory that has been taken and to keep open communication among the islands. General Lawton's advance promises to meet with a harassing resistance. Trenches are built by the enemy from town to town. On all sides the rebels are in nightly communication by means of signal fires. They avoid being canght in a trap and are quick to harass the flank- Since March 25 the enemy's- losses have not been more than double ours. Our kindness to the rebel wounded and prisoners dees not allay the dogged enmity. Only a small portion of the population of the north have returned to their home c . Only the diseased and • aged remained iu Santa Cruz. Aguinaldo is reported to be in San Fcrnaudo and still in absolute charge of the defenses of ( ae new capital, Calumpit. ' The insurgents cut the telegraph wires and tore np the railroad track between Sigaa and Bocave at 3 o'clock this morn- . ing. In repelling them the Minnesota '. and Oregon regiments lost 5 killed and . 16 wounded. . : Hlver Sleauier Quarantined. i- ST. LOUIS. April 12.— The steamer r City of St. Louts, Captain Thorwegan, ' from New Orleans, is quarantined at the southern limits of St. Louis because '•- tjt a case of smallpox found on board. SHe i a s 30 first class and 85 second class ' passengers, with 100 deck hands on board, where they will be compelled to ' stay until aii danger of contagion is re- . moved. .: • r- r -. -, o- , . .

Many of the men were carried down in the wreck. Only a few succeeded in getting to the pier, the majority either failing into the water or into the tangle of iron and woodwork. Soldier* Urine Confidence* PANA, April 12.— The presence of four companies of the Fifth regiment, with a gatiing gun section, has had a salutary effect and yesterday's scenes of bloodshed and riot have been followed by a day of uneventful quiet Today the whistles of the three mines, the Peuwell. Springside and the Pana, will call all hands to work and operations will be resumed with little prftspects of molestation, while the military is on guard. The number of dead, contrary to expectation, remains seven, no bodies having been found. Of the dozen or more citizens and miners injured, the condition of two today is pronounced critical. Olara Felix, the waitress in the Harrison hotel, who was shot through the spine while serving dinner, will die. Frank Landwehr, a delivery boy, suffers with a deep scalp wound that will probably prove fatal. The others who got in the way of the fusillade of bullets are not seriously hurt. Paanengrr Abducted and Robbed, CHICAGO, April 12.— Two highwaymen performed a daring robbery at the Lake Shore depot at Grand Grossing last night. The two robbers boarded a Lake Shore train, abducted a passenger who was standing on the rear platform of a passenger coach, bound and gagged him, despite his struggles, and then dragged him into an empty freight car, where they left him after taking everything of value he had in nil possession. The victim of the robbery is Harry Eetcham, who lives in LaPorte, Ind. He did not succeed in gaining his liberty until after his train had departed, it being fully half an hour after he was dragged into the boxcar before he was able to free himself from the ropes with which he had been tied. The robbers secured from him $ 6 in money, a gold watch valued at $ 75 and tore a gold ring from his finger. WUerl Fields L i n B a r r e n . DES MOINES, April 12.— Winter wheat is killed in Iowa, according to the report of Reporter Sage of the crop service of Iowa. Tho report declares: " The fields of winter wheat have not as yet si o. vn signs of life and it is believed that late sown wheat is about all killed. The early sown fields have also suffered material damage. Last year's seeding of clover has been- badly injured in pU sections. Less hardy varieties of fruit have been considerably injured. The consumption of grain and forage during the last winter has been greater than usual." . o f f i c i a l s N o t W o r r i e d . WASHING- OS, April 12.— Administration officials do not believe the German government will make any protest to the United States against considering events subsequent to Admiral Kautz' arrival at Apia in the proceedings of the coming Samoan commission. It was stated in a high quarter that the United Stat i s would hardly agree to any proposition- insisting as a prelimi nary to the negotiations that only the. status quo prior to Admiral Kautz' arrival in thos" waters should be considered. Confidence is expressed there will be practically harmonious instructions on the part of the three : govern, ment- s to their representatives in the tribunal and that the German governmcnt will not at tho outset take a step so radical and inimical to an early un deretandiug as is reported in the German, prcos. • * j . .

WASHINGTON, April 12.— The condition of war which has existed between tho United States and Spain since Arjril 21, 1898, terminated Tneaday, when the last formalities in the restoration of peace were perfected by the exchange of ratifications of the peace treaty. Coincident with this President McKinley issued his proclamation declaring that tho war was at an end, and the appointment of Bellamy Storer was determined upon as United States minister to Spain. The principal ceremony of the day occurred in the reception room at the white house, when the exchange of ratifications took place at 8 p. m. The signing of tbe protocol of exchange occurred at 3: 28 p. m., the French ambassador, M. Oambon, signing for Spain and Secretary Hay for the United States. The protocol was in French and briefly recited the circumstances leading up to tbe exchange. This cleared tbe way for tbe exchange itself, constituting the final act. The president took from the desk the American copy of the treaty, handsomely engrossed, bound in dark blue morocco and encased in a black morocco portfolio, and handed it to M. Canibon. At the same time M. Oambon handed to the president the Spanish copy of the treaty, also engrossed, bound in morocco and encased in a maroon colored morocco box. There were deferential bows as each received from the other this final pledge of peace. This exchange of ratifications occurred at 8: 85 p. m. The president was the first to speak. • Mr. Ambassador," said he, " I will issue my proclamation at once." M. Cambon thanked the president for the promptness with which the proclamation followed. This ended the formal ceremony, and after brief felicitations the ambassador and other officers withdrew. Secretary Hay took with him the Spanish copy of the treaty, received yesterday, and deposited it in the archives of tbe state department. M. Oambon cabled the Spanish government of the final restoration of peace, and made known that the American copy of the treaty wonld be forwarded through tho French foreign office. The effect of the action taken yesterday is to completely renew the peaceful relations, trade, official, diplomatic, consular and in all other ways, between this oountry and Spain. Following the appointment of a United States minister to Madrid and a Spanish minister to . Washington, it is expected that consuls will be sent to Barcelona and the other large places in Spain, where our consular rt presentations were suspended by the war. At the same time Spanish consuls will be appointed through this country. For a time the trade and navigation between the two oonntries will proceed without treaty protection, as the war put an end to the commercial treaty, but a treaty of trade, navigation and commerce, suitable to the new conditions and the needs of both countries, and also an extradition treaty will be negotiated soon, • V o l u n t e e r * M a y T a k e C h o i ce WASHINGTON, April 12.— An order has been prepared at the war department for a reorganization of the army on a peace basis and it probably will be issued today. Most of the general officers of the volnnteer establishment will be mustered out and radical changes made in the staff departments of the same, including the discharge of about 60 paymasters. With the exceptions of Generals Otis, Shatter, Lawton and Mac Arthur all the volunteer major generals will be discharged. Under its reorganization the army is entitled to two additional major generals and Generals Otis and Shafter have been chosen for these appointments. Law officers of the government are discussing in the light of the president's proclamation announcing the conclusion of peace the question of mustering out the volunteer army. It is regarded that the law would be construed to mean that the muster out of the troops shall be on^ orders of the executive and that necessarily there must be a delay of a month or two in the discharge of the volunteers. Meantime they will receive their pay and allowances. In accordance with precedent established at the close of the civil war, a few of the volunteers may be retained for some time, though those who desire to return home will be permitted to do so. The law authorities hold that in order that the volunteers in the Philippines may remain in the service in accordance with the provisions of tbe army law passed by tbe last congress, they must re- enlist, not as an organization, but as individuals. ' If the applications for discharges are any criterion, it is evident that the volunteers in the Philippines are not anxious to remain, and will take advantage of the law to demand their muster out. The effect of the proclamation declaring peace will be felt by the enlisted men In the regular army to the extent of a reduction of 20 per cent in pay. F o r M a n l c l p a l O t r n c r a h l p. NEW YOKK, April 12.— Mayor Van Wyck sent a message to the municipal assembly yesterday in which he said: " I request that both houses of the mu nicipal assembly pass a resolution calling on the legislature to give such statutory authority as may be necessary to enable the city to construct and operate a gas plant for the purpose of supplying gas to the city and inhabitants with authority to acquire by purchase' of condemnation proceedings ' any . existing plants suitable for tre purposed" A r t l l l n T j r .
