Manila, By Cable. Major General
MacArthur's division advanced to San

place had been evacuated by the rebels,
who left only a email detachment to
cover their retreat by train. General
MacArthnr occupied the burning town
without loss. The rebels south cf
Manila attempted to rush through

but tbe rebels maintained a fnsilade of
musketry fire on the Fourth Infantry
liegiment for several hours. The
demonstration was ineffectual beyond
Bearing the inhabitants of Malate.
The outposts of the Idaho and Califor
nia Regiments, beyond San Pedro
Macati, were also attacked during the
night. Major General Lawton is still
quartered at Balinag.
Detailed reports of the work of Major
General Lawton's expedition show
that harder fighting took placo duritg
the early part of this week than earlier
accounts indicated. In the attack
upon San Rarel, the American forces
were met with a heavy fire from a
large number of rebels who wero con
cealed in tho jungle on all sides. It

General Lawton, as usual, was at the
head of his lino with his staff. Scott's
battery demolished a stone-fronted
trench at short range.
Tho insurgent leaders Gregorio and
Teio del Pilar, who had 800 men in Bal
linag, retreated when General Lawton
approached ihe town. Chief of Scouts
Young, with eleven men entered Bali
nag ahead of the nrmy aEd rang the
church bells to announce that they had
possession of the city. General Law
ton, when attacking in force outsido of
Balinag, saw woman ana children in
the rebel trenches, aud sent Captain
Case in advance with a while flag to
warn the insurgents to remnvn th
non-combatants. Wrhen within 500
yards of the trenches two volleys wore
fired at Captain Case's party.
Chief of Scouts Young, whose brav
ery at Balinag was most notable, served
as an Indian scout under Maj. Gon. O.
O. Howard, in his campaign in the
Northwest in 1876. The work of
Young's scouts was a feature of the
expedition. Wednesday, 23 of them
encountered a body of 300 Filipinos
beyond Balinag, and drove them until
of the 150 rounds of ammunition which
the scouts carried, they had only 15
rounds left They were about to retire
when Lieut. Boyd, with a troop of the
Fourth Cavalry, came up with them
aud chased the enemy into San Mi
guel. There are 2,000 Spanish prisoners in
the hands of the Filipinos at San Mi
guel. They are served with five cents'
worth of rice daily, and are compelled
to work hard on the rebel defences.
Several hundred of the Filipino wound
ed are at San Miguel. The insurgents
are sending their women and children
to the Biacnabatto Mountains. A Bolo
chief and 100 men were captured at Ba
linag. Gen. Lawton has released many
of his prisoners.
