Before the Carnage.
On the morning ot July 3 the day
broke beautliully. The skies were
llceced with white tlouus. nnd tho
breeze continued a Utile bit longer off
the land that morning than usual. Alt
er I had eaten brcnkiast 1 came up to
take a survey of tno situation wltn
glasses. We were lying, nt that time,
possibly three miles or a llltlo bit
oer trom tho land, and I wondered

Lawr.h i.rt'l0.1, Ur ' knOWtho direction of tno leading ship. It
where she had gone. .i, i, .,. ..
I sat under an awning that we hadl.,.:.
t dm uuuui u unuiuB umi. n uuu.
put into position cacn aay as tno sun
arose, In order that the offlcers might
collect there. 1 think wo also hau
one forward for tho men. I came on
deck with my glasses, after having
gone below for a little wbllo; and,
while I was sitting abatt on a hatch
way I heard a call trom the forward
bridge: "Tell the commodore that tho
lloei is coming out. 'mat was some
time after the men nad been called
to quarters, about 9:35 o'ciock.
The ship at that moment was lying
with her head In towara the land. In
the direction ot Cabanas, which was a
llttlo covo to tho westward and ono of
tho marking points we used In main
taining our positions. .1 looked over
tho starboard sldo and saw tho enemy
coming out of the entrance of the har
bor. I then looked eastward to see
tho order of the ships, and I saw the
Texas apparently a point or more
abaft tho Btarboard beam. My own
recollection now, ns near as I can
atate It, Is that the ship's head was
near nor'-nor -west. Tho Texas ap
peared to mo to bo heading on some
ono of the easterly courses. To tho
left of her was tho Iowa. Sho was,
of course, to the eastward of tho Tex
as. Tho Oregon was to the eastward
of tho Iowa. The Indiana was cast
ward ot that position, and the Glou
cester was lying In under tno land. I
thought In tho neighborhood of Agua
dores. The New York was out of sight
and out ot Blgnal distance, with
glasses. I looked at that to uetcrmlno
what my position In tho action was
to be. If tho vessel had not been out
of sight I should not have made a sig
nal. I Said, "Go Right for Them."
Tho moment I biw that, 1 went for

constructed upon tno battlo tower as

It appeared at that moment that all
four of these Bhlps were at work upon

of turning, so far as wo could per

thought passed through my mind that,
after all our precautions anu wa t tig.

marked to Captain Cook, that wo were
alone and would perhaps havo most
of that fight upon ourselves, becausn
I did not know then that tne battle-
ships could possibly keep up their

When wo had completely turned
nrotind on n westerly course, the
ships nppeared to havo been broken
up a little, although still In some sem
bianco of formation, ami just at that
moment I saw tho Oregon breaking In
through this cloud cn elope. Sho
uroko through on to the starboard
quarter of the flagship. 1 had hoisted

"Keep the Boys Below Informed."
In n ver few moments after the
Oregon broke through this cloud of
smoke she was perhaps four or flvo
hundred ards distant. Thcso two
ships, tho llrooklyn and tho Oregon,
were firing In a manner I had nevot
seen before. I never before realized
vv hit rapid gunfire meant. Iloth ships
were at that time a sheet of flnmc,
Soon after. I saw that the leading ship

out of her potts and out of hot

Itself upon mo was that tno columns

said to Captain Cook, who was con
stantly at my sldo and alnaH In my
tunfldintu: "We hno got one. Keep
tho bo)s below Informed of nil tho
movements. They cannot seo and
they might to knew." Ho did so
throughout I ho nctlon. Every few
moments messages wcro sent below
to the men that wcro answered often
times with cheers, which wo could
hear through tho ventilators.
It appeared to bo a very short In
terval of tlmo after that, that I saw
a second ship on fire, which proved la
ter to be the Oqilcndo. Sho evidently
had suffered very severely, and start
ed Immediately inshore, leaving tho
Vizcaa and the Colon. The Vlzcaya
immediately took n leading position on
tho bow, and I thought for a little
while that she would perhaps outfoot
us. Tho Colon worried Inshore, and

CAPTAIN F. A. COOK, U. 8. N. '
of course, came up with somo rapid
Ity, and toward 12 o'clock It was ory
apparent that wo wero gaining upon
tno cnase. 1 said to uapiain uook sev
eral times during the action, "Would
It not bo a good Idea to edgo in an
that wo could finish feso fellows
quicker?" and he replied that wo had
them in the most excellent target
range, and that the guns of the two
ships seemed to bo doing most admir
We were pointing 6t that tlmo lot
Tarqulno Point, under Cnpo Cruz, at
the point extending to tho southward.
My Idea was thnt iu steering that
course, she would bo obliged to come
out. I then said that 1 would get up
a lot of extra ammunition, so that
when sho came out Into close quarters
it would bo a question of but a few
niluutes beforo wo knocked her out.
As we wero going out to head her
on there wero various signals bo

to open 1 Oro with his 13 Inch guns. Cap-
tain iiarx nas testined that he did
not receive It, but I nluas had been
uii'lci tho impression, until I heard
hlin say otherwise, that that order had
been transmitted. However, wo con
tinued to advance the Oregon and
Tho position of the Colon being dt
rectly under the flro of tho two ships,
there was no question In the mind of
the captain of tho Colon that it would
be fatal. I think ho did exactly right.
A sacrifice ot llfo would havo been
unnecessary, so ho fired a gun to the
leeward and hauled his flag down and
ran In on the bar at the mouth of Rio
Tarqulno. I signalled at onco to cease
firing, that tho enemy had surrender
ed. Wo hauUd up and Immediately
passed Into position.
"Surrender Must Be Unconditional."
When this surrender took place I
naturally felt interested In tho vessels
that wero following. 1 was then on
tho bridge, and with glasses I saw
three vessels astern. I could seo the
masts of two; 1 could seo only the
smoke of tho third one. Wo lowered
the boat, and Captain Cook went
aboard. He said to me: "Commodore
what are the termB of surrender?' I
said to him: "Unconditional. Thoso
are matters that the commandcr-ln
chief must arrange. We can only re
ceive nn unconditional surrender."
When New York Arrived.
At 2 o'clock and twenty-three min
utes, about, the New York camo up. 1
had made signals to her, and I think
sho was quite half an hour in answer
ing ono of them. Of course, thcro was
not very much breeze In under tho
land to raako tho flags stand out.
When she camo up I made tho signal
to her that It was a glorious day for
our country, nnd as soon as I could
I went on board to pay my respects
In the meantime Captain Cook, who
had been detained somo little time,
started to mako his report and went
on board tho flagship. Wnen ho re
turned, I took tho boat and went on
boird mjseir. There I reported sub
stantially what had occurred, the In

Austrian Has Hair-Breadth Escape.
So I Immediately went on board my
ship, stopping on tho way, I think, to
get tho chaplain of the Texas In order
to bury our man who had been killed.
I mado signal to the Oregon to fol
low tho flag, and started eastward at
pretty high speed. After I had been
gone somo llttlo tlmo 1 saw that the
iinnin i 1,1 not follow, and I naturally
assumed that tho commander In chief
had detained her ror oilier wotk
which ho needed done.
After I had gotten about an hour

ing from tho eastward what afterward
proved to bo tho Vixen, with the flag
lieutenant, Stanton, on board. He
camo up alongside of mo and hailed
mn. nnd said thnt tho smoke which I
saw on tho eastern horizon was that
of tho Pelayo; that ho had gono closo
enough to distinguish' her nnd make
out her colors, and that he was Biiro
It was tho Pelayo.
I told him to go west ami iniorm
tho commander In chief, and stated
that the Brooklyn would go cast and
meet the Pelayo. As we approached
what was supposed to be the Pelayo
I comesB that I was a good aeai con
fused In attempting to distinguish the
difference In tho two colors. Sho had
both at her mastheads, and that only
impressed me with tbo Idea that sho
was cleared and In battlo array tho
difference In tho color being red, wblto
and red for tho Austrian flag, and red,
yellow nnd red for the Spanish flag.
In horizontal stripes.
Wo Kept our battery trained upon
tho ship and had reached a position of
about 1800 yards, and I nad Just given
tho order to Captain Cook to Btand by.
Perceiving, however, that wo wero a
little tbo closo Inshore to ronncuvre,
and that our starboard battery was al
most entirely disabled, I ported tho
helm to get a little moro room and to

oft ot her, and passed under her stern
and stopped. Her commanding offi
