On the same day the insurgents cap

at Manila and captured the Spanish
guns at Santa Mesa.
There was a furious musketry fire
all night long at San Juan, Santa Ana,
Paso and Pasay, the Spaniards replying
with artillery and musketry. Four
hundred native militia at Santa Ana
joined the insurgents. Th? insurgents
have rushed the Malate entrenchments,

probable loss Is 100 men each. The
