Manila, Dec. IS. The advance guard
of General Grant's command, under
Major Spence, arrived at Olangapo,
Sublg bay, .during Saturday night,
which place was occupied with little
resistance, the nnemv fleeing. Malor
' Spence had an arduous march over the
mountain trails from Dlnalupihan.
Sunday morning the Baltimore and
Oregon and a chartered transpprt ar
rived at Olangapo from Manila. The
navy was disappointed to find the
army In possession of the place, which
tbey hnd noped to capture. A de-
tachment of marines, under Captain ;
Myers, occupied the navy yard at
Olangapo, and will hold and occupy It
as a naval station. The yard consists
of seven new large buildings and some
repairing and machinery snops, all
damaged by the bombardment of Sept.

1 five miles distant. The enemy was
Ji seen deserting Sublg as the troops
anded, and the latter occupied It wlth
iLotit resistance. They found the place
abandoned by the retreating enemy,
who fired a few shots. The Americans
deployed to the right and left of the
town and killed one of the enemy.
General Grant and the remainder of
his command arrived at Olangapo Sun
day afternoon. He proceeded yester
day to Subig and joined Major Spence.
General Grant will move north along
the coast and will effect a juncture
with the Twenty-fifth infantry, under
Colonel Andrew S. Hurt, who was re
ported eight miles from Iba Dec. 7.
The enemy encountered in General
Grant's advance fled to the mountains
and scattered. General Grant Is not

l Dispatches dated Conception. Dec. 2.
from a press correspondent with the
detachment pursuing Aguinaldo, have
just reached Manila by messenger. The
military wires on all lines to the
northward are continually cut by the
natives or are crowded with govern
ment business when working.
According to these advices General
Toung was at Condon Nov. 29, having
three troops of the Third cavalry,
Cunningham's scouts and Major
March's battalion of the Thirty-third
infantry. The nominal strength of his
command had been reduced one-third
by sickness. The horses were worn
out and handicapped by lack of shoes.
ix me mianiry, aner a marcn or a nun
it dred miles from San Jacinto, were
I shoeless and all were living on the
I country. The troops had no ammuni
f tlon except that In their belts.
JL General Young, having been without
fjteommunicatlon with General Lawton
EiTfor ten days and not knowing the dis
position of the other troops or whether
support was being sent forward, re
solved to keep moving.
Having received information that
the insurgent General Tino, with a
thousand men, was somewhere to the
north, and that Aguinaldo, with Gen
eral Pilar, five women and 400 sol
diers of his faithful Bulacan battalion,
was In the mountains to the east, Gen
eral Young decided, on Nov. 30, to
divide his forces. He proceeded him
self toward Vlgan, hoping to attack
General Tino, with his handful of men,
and to prevent him joining Agulnadlo.
Major March, with his battalion, and
Cunningham's scouts started over the
I mountains toward Cervantes, after
PJAgulnaklo, who was reported to have
Wvbeen there on Nov. 29. This column
marched for 13 hours without food.
The correspondent goes on to say:
"The Americans found that the In
surgents had impressed the Igorrotes,
compelling them to dig trenches and
to construct pitfalls along the trails,
which were fearful traveling at the
best. One stream had to be forded
12 times In the course of a mile. These
inoffensive, stupid creatures, usually
pictured as bloodthirsty savages,
cheerfully turned to undo their own
work and actually went foraging for
"The I locos region Is the richest the
Americans have entered on the north-
j urn campaign. The people are pros-
perous, intelligent and more than half
1 civilized. They have excellent houses
L and carry on flourishing industries.
jPMany of them are evidently rich. Sev-
V eral towns received the trnnnn with
bands and the ringing of church bells.
Cattle were killed and houses were
opened to the troops.
"How much of this display was sin
cere and how much due to a desire to
propitiate the conquerors it would be
hard to say. There were evidences
that similar hospitality had been ex
tended to Aguinaldo. The people de
scribed him as cheerful, hugging the
hope of salvation through American
politics, and everywhere trying to re
tain support by proclaiming with
seeming sincerity that the United
States congress would certainly recog
nize the Independence of the Filipino
republic in December.

dirty, and the natives say some of
them were urged forward at the point
of the bayonet."

Two Letters Which Prove
That Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound Will
Remove Tumor and Cure
"Two yenrs ntfo I was a great
sufferer from womb trouble and pro
fuse flowing each month, and tumors
would form in the womb. I bad four
tumors in two years. I went through
treatment with doctors, but they did
me no good, and I thought I would
have to resort to morphine.
" The doctor said that all that could
help me was to have an operation and
have the womb removed, but I had
heard of Mrs. Pinkhnin's medicine and
decided to try it, ntul wrote for her
advice, and nfter taking her Vegetable
Compound the tumors were expelled
and 1 began to get stronger right
along, and am as well as ever before.
Can truly say that I would never had
gotten well had it not been for Lydia
E. Pinkham's Compound." Mauv A,

given in yonrkind letter for the treat
ment of leucorrhtea, I can say that I
have been entirely cured by tho use
