Darlington, Nov. 11—In the list of casualties from Manila given in the Indianapolis News Saturday evening, was the name of George Lynch without any further distinction. George Lynch, of this place, is now a member of Co. K, 2nd U. S. Infantry, serving his second enlistment, and is supposed to be near where the fight occurred. This fact makes his family and friends have grave fears for him, and all will be very uneasy until the facts are fully known.
*Later edition states this George Lynch is alive. - "S"
