Associated Press Cable to the Star.
AMSTERDAM, August 12.-- A special cable has been received by the Government from the Governor General of Sumatra, announcing the result of a bloody battle between the Dutch government forces and a large body of warriors from the Achinese tribe. A pitched battle was fought. Three hundred of the Achinese forces were killed, seven Dutch soldiers were killed and 50 were wounded, including several officers. 

It is thought that this blow which the government forces have in flicted upon the Achinese, will have a salutatory effect in restrain ing them from further operations against the Dutch. The Achinese have been persistently struggling against the Dutch government for many years in Sumatra.
