SHIPS "BOMBARD CAIMANERA.
AMERICAN VESSELS REPORTED TO HAVE ATTACKED FORTS
AXD DRIVEN SPANIARDS FROM THEIR POSITIONS.
COMMANDER OF DISTRICT THREATENS TO BURN THE TOWN.
rOesVftgMl 1*!**; The A??ie?Ufe<1 Pre?? ?
Cxpc Haytien, Hayti, June 8, 6:10 p. tn.?Ir is reported here that a great
'tattle has. taken place at Caimanera, on the Hay of Guantanamo. At 5:30 o'clock
yesterday morning (Tuesday) five ships of the American squadron opened a heavy
bombardment of the fortifications of the town.
There was a perfect hail of shells in the bay, striking: and demolishing many
houses beyond the fortifications.
On the Spanish side the artillery replied vigorously, maintaining for some
time a stout resistance. The fire from the warships, however, never slackened
for an instant It ?was regular and carefully directed, and a great majority of the
shots proved effective.
PREPARING FOR \ FINAL DESPERATE STRUGGLE.
The Spaniards were forced to abandon their positions on the shore and re
ircat to tho town of Caimanera proper. It is supposed that later they fled from
that position also, with the inhabitants.
Information has reached here that the Spaniard? at Santiago and Caimanera
are preparing for a final desperate struggle, and are determined to resist the as?
sault?; of the Americans to the last extremity.
The commander of the district issued orders yesterday to burn Caimanera
before yielding it into the hand? of the Americans. The latter force'! the en?
trance of ihe Bay of Guantanamo and, according to the latest advices from Cai?
manera, it was feared there that the Americans would make an effort to land
forces there this (Wednesday) afternoon. Measures to prevent this, if possible,
have been taken by the Spaniards. The American fleet was still maintaining its
position.
SANTIAGO CABLE BELIEVED TO HAVE BEEN ?CUT.
Cape Haytien, Hayti, June 8, 7:10 p. m.- -Cable communication with Cuba,
which had been interrupted for many hours, was partial';.- restored this afternoon,
but it is still difficult The report of lhe bombardment at Caimanera came by
eable.
The bombardment destroyed a little house which sheltered the shore connec?
tion of the French cable at Caimanera, though whether by the explosion of
bombs from the water or by explosives used by a pany sent for that purpose is
not known.
The cables uniting the main cable with the office at Caimanera and the town
of Caimanera with Santiago wore cut, thus accounting for the prolonged absence
of intelligence here as to operations in that vicinity. It is a'.?o believed that the
cable at Santiago is cut, as no direct news from Santiago has \et been received at
('ape Haytien since Monday al midnight
CABLE OPERATORS FORCED TO FLEE FROM STATION'S.
Cape Haytien, Hayti, June8,9:15 p. m. Even before the cables in Guan?
tanamo ii.tx- ha ! been injured so that they could not be worked, the operators at
the Caii ra Station wer? forced t?> 'le?? by the fire from the American warships.
I ?. to ti"? hour, 11:16 p. m?, there has been no direct cable communication
from Santiago vnee Monday ?'it midnight.
