have been wounded in Tuesday's bat-
tle near Tipltapa. Fowler is an
A a erica n and formerly a member of
the Thirty-third infantry, U. S. A
The go\ ernments' victory appears to
have been complete. Insurgents
thrice charged at the bridge over Tip-
itapa hurling tho irfantry in against
Genera: Aguilar's battery of thre3
Maxim guns with the fury of despair
but were unable to force passage of
the river and retired in disorder,
abandoning (500 rifles, 15,000 cart-
ridges and baggage, and leaving their
wounded upon the field. The where-
abouts of General Chamorro, leader
of the insurgents in the recent bat-
tle. is not known here.
The report of the government vic-
tory was received with great rejoic-
ing here and the celebration con-
by an attack on TKsma, which had
been occupied by the insurgents who
iuTinted two Maxim guns.
These guns were commanded by
Fowler and did great execution
anvm? the loyal troops aud for seven
hours the Chamorro men had the ad-
vantage. At an opportune moment
Rivas was reinforced by men unde-
Chavarria. Soon afterwards Gen.
Vasque and Gen. Aguilar earn*1 to the
iupport of tho government lines.
Aguilar brought artillery and poured
a merciless fire Into the ranks of the
insurgent infantry. \t sundown tho
reboús withdrew toward Tipitaipa,
leaving their dead upon the field.
The fighting was the most severo
of the war thus far, four hundred
men being killed or wounded. Dur-
ing the night Chamorro reorganized
his fcrces and attempted to capture
the trenchos occupied by Gen. Ram-
ierez at Tlpitapa. The fight lasted
for four hours when the insurgents
were driven back. They retired in
the direction of Satilo and it is
thought they v.-ill join the division

Austin, Tex., Fob 26.—Following
the frightful automobile accident in
which John Selstrom lost his iife
came the news of the death of Gus
Man.gum.son, a wealthy farmer living
between Round Rock and Georgetown
had been killed instantly and Oscar
A. Nelson if Round Rock had his
right leg broken and suffered other
injuries by the overturning of an au-
tomobile in a pasture near Round
From Information received here it
seems that Nelson, an agent of an
au'tc-r.; >bilo company of Austin, was
demonstrating a machine preparatory
to selling it to Mr. Mangumson. Mr.
Nelson was showing the car, tout al-
lowed Mr. Mangumson to sih at the
¡«tecring gear. Control of the car was
lost and It turned suddenly into a
ditch. The oar was moving at a low
rate of speed at the time of the ac-
cident, but turned completely over,
crushing Mr. Mangumson to death
and Injuring Mr. Nelson seriously.
Both men were well known In this
city, a9 they were frequent visitors.
