N E W YORK, April 12.— The temporary superstructure of the big Willis avenue bridpe, now being built over the Harlem river, collapsed yesterday, killing four men and injuring six, one of whom may die.

The most seriously injured are: Charles Pursley, will probably die. Joseph Perry, crushed. Daniel Sbeehnu, nrms crnahed. S. C. Wold, head crushed. Simon McdlK), crushed. The accident was caused by too heavy^ a weight being put on the traveling derrick that crossed the superstructure. Twenty- five to SO men were employed on the structure when the oollapse ocenrred.

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.

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 . .
