Manila, Aug. 27. - There has been a very serious clash at Cavite between United States soldiers and the insurgents, the riot resultlng in the killing of one soldier and the serious wounding of another. George Hudson, a raember of the Utah battery, got into a dispute with a native shopkeeper. Fearing trouble he fired his revolver in the air to attract the attention of some I of his fellow soldiers. A great crowd of natives ran to the scène of the disturbance and at once began flring their revolvers, killing Hudson and seriously wounding Corporal Wllliam Anderson of the same battery, who had hurried to the assistance of Hudson. A detachment of the Fourth eavalry was called out and dispersed the Filipinos, who continued to fire their revolvers as they retreated, but without doing any more damage. On the same night some of the soldiers doing guard duty saw a larga party of natives stripping the wreek of a gunboat whieh was Iying in Cavite Day. A boat with an armed force was put olï from the shore. The sailors hailed the natives, who failed to answer. Then the soldiers fired a volley, one and wounding another. General Aguinaldo promptly denied any connection between the natives in these affairs and his army. Admiral Dewey has transferred his flag to the cruiser Baltimore, the Olympia sailing for Hong Kong to be docked and cleaned. The Raleigh left for the same port Wednesday night.
