the shacks when tho heaviest storm
Unit has visited here In years came up.
Our buildings stood It for a short time,
when suddenly thoy collapsed and we
were left out In the wind and rain. We
lecelved orders to proceed to Iaguna
Wo boarded small boats on Saturday,
September 15, and started up the Paslg
river, preceded by a gunboat. About 2
o'clock Sunday morning, while laying
around the boat, we received a volley
from the shore. Then more volleys In
rapid succession. The gunboat opened
fire on tho Insurgents and silenced
them. Two of our men were wounded.
Sunday morning about 7 o'clock we ar
rived at our destination, but had some
trouble In landing. Tho Insurgents at
tempted to prevent our landing, but a
few volleys from us dispersed them.
Kaeb company was sent to garison a
different town. L company was sent to
Slmlloon. Sunday night we were at
tacked about 12 o'clock. We were quar
tered In an old church nt the base of
some mountains, nnd tho Insurgents
poured volley after volley Into us. We
Immediately got Into action and drove
them back without the loss of a man.
Monday morning, September 17, Is a
day I will always remember. About
fi.30 we heard heavy firing In the direc
tion of Slmlloon, where Company L wa
stationed. Our captain fell us In nnd
leaving twenty men behind to hold the
town we were in, we proceedod to Slml
loon to reinforce Company L. We
walked the distance of two miles In
water up to our waists. Our battlefield
was a rice field flooded with water,
while the insurgents were strongly In
trenched in the hills and pouring dead
ly volloyslnto us. Men were falling on
all sldesl Wo kept advancing, but It
was -very slow ns the water was up to
our waists. We returned their fire, but
they continued to pour volley after vol.
Ie,y Into us. They had the advantage
of us as they were entrenched, and we
Jiiiadc an excellent target for them, as
wo were In the open and they could
percelvethedamago they were Inflicting
on us. All we could see to fire nt was
i gun once In a while that would make
Its Rppearance over the trenches. We
advanced to within about three hundred
yards of their trenches, and our am
munition was getting low, and about
onchalf of our forces were killed and
wounded, and we wore nearly exhaust
ed when we were ordered to retreat.
The voleys kept pouring Into us until
wo got out of range; even when we
were carrying our wounded nnd dead
from the field they tired on us. After
the engagement was over we found our
loss to be thirty-three killed and fifty-
seven wounded. It was a heartrending
light to see thlrtythree dead men laid
,'fit. fellows that you had chummed
Ivlth for nearly two years, and the
roans of the wounded. I will never
orget It. Some" boys from around Car-
ondale nnd Scranton were killed and

A Letter from the Strikers.
Editor of Tribune, Carbondale.
The sllkSnlll Btrlkers held a meal
ing Friday evening In their hall, and
tho report of tho committee showed
that there were only a few hands
working in tho mill at present. These
will have to Join our union or tho
miners will put their fathers out of the
United Mlno Workers and also throw
them out of work. At tho meeting
held last Sunday of the officers of the
different locals from Forest City to
Olyphant, our ense was laid before
them and they said they would give
us their sympathy nnd do nil In their
power to help us, for Ave are as broth
ers nnd sisters to them. The Simpson
miners refuse to work with any man
who has a daughter or son In the mill,
because they are true union men and
not like some of the union men of our
city, who nra union men only In out
ward appearunce nnd that Is all. They
Bend their children to work In our
places while wo are on strike for what
Is Just. And we would like to know
how wo are going to win while they
continue to work they say that they
will join when our union Is strong
enough. What we want Is to have
them Join our union nnd make It
strong. If those working would only
come out peacefully and join our
union, it would 'be but a short time
before this company would accede to
our demands. They can not afford to
let these two mills stand Idle and es
pecially not now, with all the silk on
hand that Is piled In the packing room.
One of the committee reported last
night that a girl working there told
her that there was only about twenty
five girls working nt present. Shame
on the girl or boy 'whv will -work In
the mill, nnd It's a shame and dis
grace to the parents who send tholr
children there while tho smallest, nnd
those In most need of the money, are
out for their rights.
Wo have worked quietly enough nnd
stood It long enough, but we will stnnd
for it no longer. Hut we will brand
those people with the name that they
will find hard to got away from and
one they will carry for life. They say
they will arrest us. Let them arrest
us and throw the ease, Into court, nnd
when tho ,tlmo comes we will get up
and prove that thoy are just what wo
call them. That mill Is declared on
strlko throughout the country, and
those who work In It are deserving of
the name we brand upon them. Wo
heard this morning that Manager
Prelder told one of the reporters not
to put anything In the papers that wo
would give him, nnd to not let It be
known In Scranton that there was a
strike on in tho mill here, nut we
won't leavo It to tho reporters. We
send all our news right to the oHlce of
the paper. It will bo known In Scran
ton, nnd not only In Scranton but In
all the cities In the country. Mr.
Freldcr cannot fool those on strlko.
Wo know that wo ask for no morn
than what Is just, and by our word
wo will stnnd. We hear also that the
speed of tho frames has been cut
down, so if tho factory Inspector
should come around they could sav
that they are running at the right rate
of speed, but they are too late now,
for we can prove that three of the
frames of the first time spinners were
running at tho rate of 2,",000 revolu
tions. That Is 7,000 revolutions higher
than the average speed, and that they
cut them down to sixteen and four
teen thousand revolutions. We can tell
a lot more of tho quiet work that is
going on up there, but wo will put
that in tho paper later on.

THEIR CURATIVE TREATMENT
A by tho
This method of treating tho abovo
diseases was originated by the cele
brated French physician, Dr. Drouet,
of Paris. Tho treatment consists In
the direct application to the mucous
membranes of speclflo remedies, which
act by gradual Impregnation on the
diseased tissues with remarkably suc
cessful 'results. A most Ingeniously
constructed Instrument! and apparatus
Is required to carry out this mode of
treatment. By Its use every portion of
tho Nose, Throat, Larynx, etc., are
Illuminated for tho purpose of diag
nosis nnd treatment. The remedies and
medicines are Introduced to the dis
eased tissues in tho form of vapors and
medicated air, which produces a mild
and soothing effect upon tho congested
nnd Inflamed membranes. A slnglo
trial of this treatment will convince
any one of Its fooneflclal effects.
This method of treatment Is now In
troduced from Europe In tho Unltod
Stntes for the first time. Its advant
