Mr. Bridgman to Mr. Hay.
La Paz, Bolivia , April 20, 1899 .
Sir: I have the honor to state that since the battle reported in dispatch No. 113,1 of April 13, matters have progressed quietly and the people generally accept the idea that the revolution has ended and that peace is declared.
Alonzo, on the day of the engagement, fled to Antofagasta, and is still out of Bolivia, with a number of his officers.
The number killed of Pando’s army is 117, wounded 127.
Of Alonzo’s men they estimate 400 killed and wounded; 1,000 of Alonzo’s army were taken prisoners; 20 pieces of artillery, 4 Gatling guns, 1,700 rifles captured, with 38,000 bolivianos from the treasure wagon.
The local government of La Paz soon go to Oruro, there to arrange preliminaries for reorganization. Several months must elapse before regular Congress convenes and affairs are fully adjusted.
I have to-day sent cablegram as follows:
Revolution ended. Everything quiet.
