NO FFI?THF.K WORD FROM SAMPSON.
?Washington, June 6L?No further word fr.?m
Admiral Sampson was received at the Navy
Department. The bulletin ma?le public by the
Department last night in ??enfiriiiattoa of ?he
press reports of the attack upor. Santiago last
Monday is beHcved to b? merely a fkeleton
statement of Admiral Sampson's cable dispatch
which, It Is surmised, contained a Rood deal
more information than It xvas dtsm*<V prudent
to make public. Of course, to protect the naval
cipher. Ih? matter published was a paraphrase,
and it xvas said at lbs Department this morn?
ing that the term used In lie bulletin, "silenced
works quickly xxithout Injury at any tlm?\" xvas
based upon a statement In the original dispatch
broad enough to indicate that the ships had
sustained no Injuries, and that there had been
no casualties among the personnel of the Ameri?
Naval officers t<>-day expressed the belief that
about ail of the for? a landed on Monday from
Sampson's fleet were marines, and that their
purp.'se ?rat not so much to take military pos?
session of the landing as perhaps 10 spike some
gut.? and destroy ?OBM batteries that might
have been reoecupied by the Spaniards to ad?
vantage after the retirement of the American
fleet from the action.
One object of Admiral Sampson's attack which
has cscapeil general observai; n. though ex?
ceedingly important, was pointed out at the
Navy Department. This xvas to prevent tae
Spaniards from making a successful attempt to
remove the obstruction of the channel < aused
bg the Wtech "f the Merrlmac Having silenced
the forts at the entra?e- of the harbor, xxhich.
xvhlle effective, obliged the American fleet to lie
many miles out at sea to kee;> out of range of
their guns. Sampson will n?.w be able to piare
one or more of his ships close t?? the mouth of
the harbor, where they will lie In comparative
safety and yet be able to command easily with
their guns the wreck of the Merrlmac
A RBPOBI i'-N IJEUT. HOBSON'8 action.
W?sh!ng;t"n, June V The President has di?
rected Admiral Sampson to prepay.- and forward
a detailed rep nt at ?nee i f the gallant action
of Lieutenant Richmond Pearson Hobson at
Santiago, and ns ?o-.n as that is received he
will send a spoelal message to Congress recog
rlzlng the heroism displayed n-?t only by Hob
son himself but by the men who aoompanied
him on fh" Merrlmac. The order for a full re?
port Is already on the xvav. the President feel
in?? It best to xvalt ofllcial advices l.ef.r.e taking
the action he BOW contemplate?.
What will be recommended for Hobeon and
hla crew la n?t certain now. but there probably
will be a recommendation for a vote of thank:'
specifically naming Hobson. though probably
not naming the men. Medals of honor, it Is ex?
pected by those who have talked With the Pres?
ident on the subject, will be struck off for the
little band of men. and promotion of s??me sort
Is lr. st. re for all of them. It will take some
days for Admiral Sampson to get h:s report
here, but probably some time n"xt wash a m?-a
