WHO WAS II IT
The Battle With the Filipinos Last Sunday.
BRIG, GEN. CHAS. KING
He Cables to the New York Journal His
Story of the Engagement"
The following story of the Manilla battle is told by Gen. Charles Kiug.TJ. S. V.
in a cable to the New York Journal:
You ask me for a story of our battli
with the Filipino insurgents ou Sunday.
lean tell you only of my own comman ,
for the zone of fighting was I
long and wide one. McArthur's div
ision is aorosB the Fasig river nod Ovei -
shines brigade is well out towards 01
Cavite. Moreover, we are so busy oi
our own front that we had no time to
ask questions, nor would tbe others have
had time to answer them.
For a month past we ha*e expeotei
this battle. The insurgents ou the eas*
front of Mauilla and across the Estem
Conoordia, a creek that empties into th*
Pasig. had been in close contact wii
the outposts of our brigade, and only tin
most positive orders have prevented ai
earlier conflict, for the temper of our nn*
has been sorely tried by their aggres-
sions.
Up to midnight of Saturday, Februai;
4, not a shot had been tired ou my fion
although theie had beeu some toilet*
aud-go wn.k all the earlier eveuiui
across the Pasig, Not until 2:40 n'cl* ck
.-nmiiay m.iruiug, r* uriiar.v 5, dm tne n -
suigents open fire on the first brigade i.
tbe first division, Our policy was one u
HulVeriiui"!". At that moment my line i >
tended from blockhouse Ncc. 12 on tin
extreme right along the Estero Oirooo -
dm tu the I'a-i*.; river, at tbe village o
Handacau.
Across Hum.arrow stream, for week
past, the insurgents bad been allowed ii
throw up earthworks and prepare for at
tack or defense. Our orders were practi
cally to submit to anything*1 rather iba*
to bring on a tight and both officers ann
men had been uuder a condition of se
Vere tension because of tbe insults am.
aggressions of the Filipinos.
It was busiuesB from the start. Ti.
first brigade of General Anderson's in
vision, consisting of the Fust Washington, First California and First ldah
regiments, Dyer's Hue battery ot tl*
Sixth artillery, and Hawthorne's sepeiat
mountain battery joined just after th
fun began,
The insurgents were iu force direct 1-
in front ou the Santa Ana bridge, whin
spans the Concordia creek and wer
armed with Mausers. The sky whi
clouded, but the moon, though waning)
was powerful enough to light tho way,
Colouel Wholley, with two battalion!)
ot his splendid rogimeut, the First Washington, defended the position ou this side
of the Santa Ana bridge, while Oyei't-
guns were being hurried to their station
ou his right, and Iho Hawthorne's mono
tain battery came clattering up aud wen
into action at tbe bridge itself.
In the first ten minutes' fighting oi
the right of the road, Company A of the
First Washington had two meu killed
and 15 wounded, their gnllunt Captain,
Otis of Spokane, losing much ot oue ol
his ears, but none of his nerve,
At4 o'clock In the morning the fight,
was general nil ahong the line.
At last enme the order to advance
General Anderson iu person directed
the attack in the direction of San Peu-
ro, a village lying back of tho insurgents earthworks, while the brigade
commander, with the Washington and
Idaho l-egineuts, made tho dash on
Santa, A mi.
This was about 8 o'clock. The fields
toward Kan Pedro were open and lightly held, hut to the left on the ro.cd
leading to Santa Ana, the ihsiirgc ts
had strong redoubts and eaithworks
and Krupp guns. Itniu-tlie co. fis-od
they fought with obstinate courage,
wilh no little skill���much mere c-kil,
indeed, than we had anticipated, but
their valor was of no avail against tho
determined insh of tbo Washington!
and Idaho:;.
Gallant old Major McCccnville of the*
Idahos got his last order frmn the lips
of the brigade ccimiimii Ier, as together
thoy rode across the Santa Ami br dge,
Knd Ids death won* d was received
trial* he wti 1-tauluR hi* m-Hi Into th*
attack of the crowding masses of Filipinos.
The fight was prnticulnrly fierce in
front of the left wing, where the insurgents doggedly held on to a redoubt
jn front of Pandacan until our line had
swept beyond their flank.
In the clash upon the earthwork, Captain Foitson of Seattle, commanding
Company IS  of the  first Washington,
led two companies across the Concordia, fording the stream, as almost all
the brigade hud to,waist or breast deep.
One of MeConvili's companies attacked the redoubt at the same moment from the right, and between the
insurgents were driven out of their
shelter, heller skelter, across the inter-
lying country and inio the Pasig river,
leaving 40 dead and many wounded in
their wake.
Just beyond the redoubt, and close to
the river, the insurgents had a strong
earthwork defended with two Krupp
guns. These they handled with skill
and coun-ge to the very last, when our
cheering lines swept over them with
the bayonet,
Meanwhile, and in the face of a heavy
fire, the right wing drove squarely in
to the village of Kanla Ana, the insurgents holding on pluckily and leaving
many dead and wounded among the
Nipa huts.
In just one hour after the order tn
advance had been given the first brigade had captured Santa Ann, wit lithe
guns, reserve ammunition and supplies
of the insurgents. The Filipinos can
indeed tight.
Iu another h ur the e.xtiemc right
had driven the enemy through Sai
Pedro, and by no in of Sunday the
church and catli* d nl at Guadeloupe,
hich is situated four miles up the
I'asig, were in our possession.
There is now nothiug else on our side
if the river worth the taking.

MEETING IN NEW YORK
Fitzsinimons and Sharkey Oould Not Ocme
to Terms, so Jefferies Will Take
the Champion on-
New York, Feb. 9.���The chances
for a meeting between Bob Fitzsinimons and Tom Sharkey in a 24-
foot ring for the heavyweight championship of the world are rather
remote. It was generally expected
that they would be matched this
evening for a limited round or finish
contest, but after parleying for over
an hour Martin Julian and Tom
O'Rourke failed to agree on a date
and the negotiations fell through.
Julian immediately began to arrange
a bout between Fitzsimmons and
Jefferies and soon had the matter
well in hand. Jefferies was represented by J. P. Eagan, who acted
on behalf of W. A. Brady, who is
now in San Franciswo. The meeting was attended by a large
gathering of sporting men and newspaper representives. Julian arrived
late in the afternoon from Detroit
but prior to his arrival O'Rourke
announced that he had signed Sharkey to meet Tom Mitchell of England
for a purse of $1 i,ooo, the bout to
lake place before the Bolingbroke
Club, of London, May 29. Julian
opened the proceedings by stating
tbat he was ready to match Fitzsimmons against Sharkey and was
anxious to have the contest take
place as soon as possible before the
club offering the largest purse.
He stated that the conditions
should be Marquis of Queensbury
rules to govern with the exception
that there should be no hitting in
the clinches or breakaways. No
bandages were to be worn by either
contestant and the men should box
25 rounds if the contest occurred in
this state, but if a club could be
found which would offer a larger
purse than any other, and a finish
light could be arranged, then the
principals would accept that offer.
He said that Sharkey could not
meet Fitzsimmons before November next. Julian then said he
would extend the time until  June.
"That is impossible," said
O'Rourke, "as Sharkey will meet
Mitchell in    London  on   May   29."
"You had no right to make that
match." was Julian's hot retort.
"Well, we a e out for tbe money,"
said O'Rourke, "and you would
have taken the same offer if it came
your way."
A war of words ensued, during
which O'Rouke said: "Look here
Julian, I'll put up a forfeit ol $10,-
000 to bind Sharkey to meet your
man in November and you can
make any matches you see lit for
Fitzsimmons in the meantime."
"I know your reasons for not
wanting to light  now," said Julian.
"Well, I can tell you," replied
O'Rourke, "1 know Sharkey is improving while Fitzsiminons is standing still, and as your man has not
fought in two ycass, I feel that
Sharkey bas a right to dictate terms
and should get until November."
"My money has been up for a
long time, and yours has only up
for a couple of days," remarked
Julian.
More followed. Julian made
several references to tbe meeting of
I'itzsimmons and Sharkey in San
Francisco, and finally said:
"I drop all negotiations wilh you
and Sharkey and will take on Jeffries." J, P. Eagan representing
Brady stepped forward and said:
"Jeffries will meet Fitzsimmons on
the terms you have just stated but I
cannot cover your forfeit of $2,500
until tomorrow morning."
Julian assented and agreed to
meet Eagan at the Union Square
Hotel tonight to sign the articles.
It was mutually agreed that the
chilis that wished to bid for tho contest should have two weeks to do so
uud the bout will take place on June
sixth.
Martin Julian representing Robert
I'lUsluiuiouS aud It   P<   Kazan,   rep
resenting W. A. Brady, manager of
Jeffries,met at the Union Square hotel
this evening and settled upon a light
between Jeffries and Fitzsimmons.
The articles will be signed tomorrow.
The declare that the fight is to take
place before the club offering the largest purse not later than May 20, the
day before tho Brooklyn handicap.
The tight is to be of 25 rounds if
brought off in tho .State of New York,
to be a finish in other place. Thore
will be no hitting in clinches and the
men must break at the word of the
referee.

ONTARIO HAS A DEFICIT.
Toronto, Feb. II- -Tbe public accounts
aud estimate! were placed on the table of
the Legislature today. They show a
very favorable state of affairs, though
the expenditure is somewhat In excess of
th* receipts:
The first public political gathering in
connection with the contest for the seat
in the Provincial Legislature, vacated
by the resignation of Hon. J. Fred
Hume, was held in the Hume Hotel
Hall last night. The large attendance
was an indication of the interest being
taken in tbe campaign, despite the fact
that matters political have been apparently very quiet. Mr. Farwell and Mr.
Hume both received flittering receptions, and with the exception of an ac-
casioual interruption by some one in
the audience who knew no better, the
meeting was a very orderly one.
Dr. Forin presided and with him on
the platform were lhe two candidates
and Messrs. Frank Fletcher, W. A.
Macdonald, S. ti. Taylor, James Wilkes and E, V. Bodwell. While speak-
rs of bolh candidates were supposed
to received impaitial treatment from
lhe chairman, the friends of Mr. Far-
wed were invariably cutoff when their
time limit had expir* d, while, on the
other hand, Mr. Hume's supporters
were permitted to continue as they
pie sed. In ju-tice to Mr. Hume's
speakers it is fi*ir t'< ��ny that the blame
I tor the treatment ot the opposition
speakers alone attaches to Dr. Forin.
the chairman.
Mr. Hume was the first speaker.
He was pleased to mret the electors of
the Nelson Riding. He explained why
he had resigned his seat. He had been
advised by some of the solicitors whom
he asked in regard to his standing that
lhat he was secure in his seat, others
had told him there was a doubt and he
bad determined to return to the electors of Nelson Riding and again ask
for their support. He waa well bc-
c|it inled with Mr. Farwell, for whom
he had a great deal of respect, but he
lelieved he had been forced by others
1.0 enter the field aud this against his
better judgment. He had entered the
11 Id, however, and the contest was on.
He (Mr. Hume) had beeu acoused of
bjiug a tool of Mr. Martin. This he denied most emphatically. He had never
been under the control of Mr. Martin or
any other man. Referring to the Placer
Miuiug Bill, Mr. Hume acknowledged
that he had fathered it. If any blame attached to any oue because ot its passage
ihe blame attached to him. Mr. Hume
referted to the Chinese and Japanese exclusion bills and argued to show that
thoy were right and proper. He referred
also to the matter ot the Land Registry
office in Nelson and explained why lt'.had
uot yet beeu established. He said he believed appropriation for tbe erection of
the building would appear in the estimates this year, but did not make any
promise or definite statement to this effect.
Mr. Farwell followed Mr. Hume. He
expressed his pleasure at tho opportunity offered him ot addressing so large a
I meeting of t he eleotors,    He was pleased
i hIho Iiiiii tin- campaign up to  date  had
j been a dean ono. He did not believe io
luudslinging or in personalities. It was
simply a question as to   whether he or
! Mr. Hume could better serve the inter-
.- .!:* ..liln" Nelson Hiding. If the pen-
plu believed that Mr. Hume was tbe man
', who could best lepreBent them they
s could vote for him, but if they believed
shut he, (farwell) would serve their in-
tc rests better, theu they  should so   cast
j their votes. For himself, however he
did not think the return  of Mi.  Hume
1 would be conductive, to the best interests
��� of the Hilling.
Mr. llunii" had acknowledged that
he had been  the  father of the exclti-
I sioti act and this Mr.  Farwell thought
j very bad legislation.      It was simply  a
forerunner of the inclusion of aliens
f 1 (im quart, milling and already the
effects of it are being felt. Outside
' capital hud been intimidated and
' Kootenay would suffer. The speaker
referred also to the action of the Minis-
t. r of Mines ID having repealed the order in council proving that afreeiuinrr
who had allowed his license to elspes
could have   it   dated   back   upon   the

The Monetary Times, Toronto, is
not a political journal. It may have
its party preferences, but if so it is
successful in concealing- the:n. Its
mission is commercial or mercantile
as is sufficiently indicated by its full
title, The Monetary Times, Trade
Review and Insurance Chronicle.
Like every other well informed journal it follows closely all events oi
public interest; and often finds it
necessary to comment on them.
The legislation against alien placer
miners in this Province is a case in
point. Of the expediency of it, so
far as it effects our own interests,
the people of British Columbia musi
of course, be allowed to be the best
judges. But if opposed to the larger
interests of the Dominion as a whole
the question or its disallowance
comes up, and the right of the Federal authorities on the matter
is not open to dispute. Therefore Mr. Martin is clearly in the
wrong to defy that authority as he
has done.
This impartial, non-political journal goes on:
"By reflex action the British  Cc-

There can be no question, in view
of these circumstances, that th
whole affair was a trick to cheat the
Opposition out of a nomination. I
is a new kind of election fraud, and
for unscrupulous boldness beats the
record. That the Legislature will
permit Mr. Wells to take his seat is
quite expected. The Legislature
that seated Mr. Prentice and Mr.
Deane is capable of doing anything;
no iniquity is too great for it. But
that Mr. Wells will ba permitted to
retain his seat by the courts is not
even supposable. In the meantime,
however, Mr. Martin, the promptor
and instigator of all these outrages,
will swagger before the country with
the pretence of a majority.
British Columbians must conclude
by this time that they are being introduced to new methods in politics,
as startling as they are disreputable. Government by the people
has  gone  out,  and in its place we

priving Canadians of the same priv-1 who goes up as
ilege in Alaska. What may be the
relative vaiue of the two privileges
thus taken away, we are not to consider. The fact that a privilege
is taken away from Canadians, in
Alaska, by the action of the British
Columbia Legislature stands out
boldly in relief. Here is an injury done
to Canadians as a whole by the action of one Province. The right of
the injured to look for redress to the
Ottawa Government is clear; and if
the exercise of that right should be
demanded, that Government would
feel the necessity of finding some j
means of giving relief. That it ���
would proceed to an exercise of the
veto at once is not probable, nor ���
desirable. But in case of inveterate
obstinacy on the part of the Province this reserved power might,
however reluctantly, have to be
used. The British Columbia exclusion law could easily be evaded bj
the use of Canadian names in the interest of American operators. That
it will be so evaded, if permitted to
remain on the statute book, experience in similar cases goes to prove.
The law will, in fact, in its direct action be a dead letter;   in   its

Nelson's Chinese colony is by no
means a small one and when one
undertook to visit all the Mongolians at their homes yesterday he
had a few hours work on hand.
The Chinamen were at home to
their friends���whether white or yellow���yesterday as it was the first
day of their New Year celebration.
The ordinary mortals who are born
on American soil are quite satisfied
with a mild observance of one day
as New Years but it is not so with
the almond-eyed natives of the Celestial empire who are content with
not less than a week's festivities.
They keep open house and not onl)
exchange the compliments of the
season with one another but take
pleasure in receiving and entertaining their white friends.
Yesterday afternoon and evening
a large number of citizens found
their way to "China Town" and
visited the different establishments.
In these the Mongolians were assembled resplendent in the gorgeous
hues of their native dress. Some
gambled while others dispensed refreshments in a lavish manner. Natives drinks and sweetmeats were
abundant and the more favored of
the guests not only received all
they could comfortably drink or eat
at the time but were presented with
parcels of nuts and candies to take
home with them. The houses were
decorated in the most tasty Oiiental
manner.
In the evening the festivities confined themselves pretty well to
gambling, in which every self-re
specting Chinaman indulges when
he celebrates his new year, but firecrackers kept up a fusilade until a
late hour. The more prosperous
Celestials will keep up the celebration for at least a week, the laundry
men will knock off work for a couple of days and those who arc servants in private houses will celebrating just as long as their masters or mistresses will allow   them.

The attention of the Supreme

In the police court yesterday a
Nelson bartender wis fined $10 and
costs for assaulting a .woman. The
woman's presence in the saloon had
became objectionable and the dispenser of wine had used his lists to
strenthen his arguments why sbe

The bankers of the city have

and the public may look for a lear-

is supposed to be insane and who bus
been kept in Ne'smi for the six months
by some of his country men, was today
given passage to Marseills, France,
where he hss relatives, Mr, Paul Ninon, Chief of Police McKinnon and
others succeeded iu raising ihe money

The pound man is regretting the
fact that there is no law compelling i
owners of dogs to attach tags to
their canine friends. As it is now
he cannot tell which dogs have had
their licenses paid and be is apt to
gather up the wrong ones in bis
efforts to get after delinquents. To
a\oid trouble owners might attach
theii dogs to the tags secured when
they enrich the

A correspondent writing to The
Miner from Rossland says: Never
before in the political history of the
Dominion was the antomony of a
Province more flagrantly violated
than it has been in British Columbia
by Thorn is R. Mclnnes. All the
infamous legislation of the present
usut pery government of the Province
is due to his arbitrary and unwarranted act. Success then to the
candidate for Ne son whom tin.
electors virtually chose last summer.
He will now get his fights, and the
Province hers, for I have no doubt
whatever that Nelson electors are
true to Provincial rights and enemies of usurpers and "carpetbag'
egtslation.

GENTLEMEN-The sent for this
Riding being again vacant, by the resignation of thu Hon. J. Fred Hume,
at the earnest request of a large number of tho electors of this constituency,
I offer myself ns a candidate to represent you in thu Legislative Assembly.
I advocated iu my last, candidature,
unci still propose to support, the building of useful roads, trails, and bridges,
in the District, and was pleased to see
last year tho con nicucemeut of some
public works of that nature. I rogret
to find that practically all such improvements in this Riding were
stopped upon the acceptance of office
by the Hon. Mr.Hume. With regard to
public, buildings, appropriations were
made last session tor additional School
accommodation, and a Land Registry
Office in Nelson. As to tho former
the sum votoil has been expended in
a dilatory manner,greatly inconveniencing the Trustees, teaching staff: and pupils. As to the latter no attempt has
been made to supply the grave want.
It may he remarked that when in Opposition the Hon. Mr. Hume strenously
pointed out the inconvenience of having to register nil documents affecting land in Victoria, and advocated
the building of the office iu Nelson.
I submit that the legislation already
passed during the present sitting ol
tho Provincial House of Assembly is
against the interest of our mining industry. ��The Alien Bill prohibiting
aliens from working iu the lilacer
mines of the Province is even now having a retarding uffect on the development of our metalliferous mines. It is
interpreted as tho introduction of the
thin fillge of the wedge, towards, prob-
bly next session, introducing legisla-
ty treasury by the | tion to prohibit aliens from prospecting and developing the mineral resources of Kootenay. I may add that
tho   miners   of Kootenay   view   with

The privilege formerly existing of a
free miner who had inadvertently al
lowed his license to lapse, being reinstated in his rights upon the payment of a small fee, was heartily endorsed by me; and the withdrawal of
this privilege by tho Minister of Alines
wns an arbitrary act which has al
ready resulted in loss to miners, pros
peotots and others, and is calculated
in the future to operate disastrously
to those interested in mining.
I am opposed to the hasty passage of
mining legislation without giving tin
mining communities the opportunity
nf considering snch measures. Such
hasty procedure is unusual in this Province and detrimental to the best tutor-
ests of our great mining industries.
[ consider the parsimonious admin
istrntion of publio affairs inaugurated
by the present govern,mint is calculated to seriously endanger lhe efficene\
of the civil service and hamper tin

il of this privilege h id worked, many
hardships to the miners ot Wes Koolenay. He referred to the manner in
in which the Semlin government had
reduced salaries, cuttii g down the
wages of workingmen Crow 050 11 di.y
0 {2.00. tie called attention to some
Government work being done at Revel-
stoke where the men hud petitioned
the Government to pay them $2 50 if
day instead of $2.1*0. Mr. S.mliu hud
replied to the effect thnt after due cmi-
siieratinii the Government had decided
oi pay ��2.01) a day. Tbe speaker believed in payii g workingmen living
wages.
S. S. Taylor followed Mr. Farwell and
was in time followed by Mr. Frank
Fletcher, James Wilkes, of Rosslaud,
*��as next introduced as Vice-President
form Britit*bC. dointiiii of the Trades and
Labor Unions of Canada. He ie the
man who attempted to swing tne
labor vote of Hossland to candidate
Wallace who was defeated in the recent municipal contest at Rossland.
He was brought to Nelsou by Mr.
Hume's supporters in the hope that he
would be able to counteract the effect
of the poor mining legislation among
the mines of this district. He grew
eloquent as he declared "this is tbe
first time mine eyes have rested upon
Mr. Hume aud the City of Nelson"
aud promised iu conclusion that Nelson electors would have another opportunity of hearing him before the close
of the campaign.
Mr. W. A. Macdonald was then introduced. He attacked the preset^
Government and declared th it it was
a one man Government and that one
man was Mr. Joseph Martin, who had
heen turned down in the Province from
which he came aud tbat by his own
party. He paid his respects also to
Mr. S. S. Taylor. He did not know,
he said, until he attended the meeting just where Mr. Taylor stood in
the present contest. He was a man
whose political coat was of many colors. He was very changeable���at one
time he was a Conservative, then a
Liberal and '.iien a supporter of the
Turner Government.
At this juncture Mr. Taylor denied
that he had ever been a supporter oi
the Turner Government.
"You deny it?" asked Mr. Macdonald.
"Yes I do," replied Mr. Taylor.
"You deny that you were never a
supporter of the Turner government
and would uot have heen a candidate
in its interests? Now be careful Mr.
Taylor," said tho speaker.
Mr, Tailor wm aligutly eniluiui-sid
but iikiaiu entered 11 denial.
���'Then I'll provi that   what  I  say  is
rue," said Mr,  M ccdoiii.lil as  he   dr w
fnun bis pocket a letter and held it up 10
Mr. Taylor.
" Is that your signatnte?" he asked.
"Yr-s" w-.s the reply.
Thi-n   turning to  the  audience Mr.
Macdouald rend the letter.   It was wri.-
teu by Mr. Taylor to some one in Nelso .
In it the writer declared that  it he hi,d
beeu a resident ot Nelson   fur   a   lougtr
period he would engage actively iu   politics, but in   ny event, if tue boys would
rally arrouud him hejwould   be   willing
to become a candidate in the interests of
the Turner government
Mr. Taylor was completely undone
and made no effort nt nu explanation.
Mr. Bodwell followed Mr. Macdonald
in defense of the Semlin Government
and Mr. Hume concluded the meeting
with a few words.
