GO ABOARD THE HARVARD.
Shortly after noon the officers began
to assemble their men and prepare to
embark on the Harvard. Buglers
sounded the assembly and guards were
sent out to bring the soldiers into
camp. It was 2 o'clock before the com?
mand was given to the Ninth Massa?
chusetts regiment to march. The reg?
iment moved to the passenger pier,
where they boarded tne Plymouth in
companies and were transferred to the
Harvard, which is lying off the ship?
yard Hundreds of people, including
many ladies, were at the dock and as
the Plymouth moved toward the cruis?
er there was wild cheering. It required
several trips to carry the men out to
the Harvard. Later in the afternoon
the Michigan troops were transferred
to the Harvard, after which a quantity
of powder and stores rere taken out.
It is not known when the Harvard
will leave, but Captain Cotton said last
evening that he hardly thought hiy
hip would weigh anchor before noon.
PRIVATE REPORTED DROWNED.
It was reported late last night that
?. private In the Massachusetts regi?
ment was drowned In the James river
yesterday afternoon. The soldier, it is
said, was in bathing and attempted to
swim out to the Harvard, a distance of
at least one mile, but his strength
gave out and he went down. The re

of the General Assembly authorizing
the issuance of bonds stipulates that
such money shall be expended in build?
ing three crossings, and the council
has no right to amend it.
Mr. W. J. Payne, president of the
Newport News Gas Company, and one
of the principal promoters of the New?
port News and Old Point Railway and
Electric Company, was in the city yes?
terday, and made the following state?
ment to a reporter for the Daily Press
regarding the ordinance passed by the
council requiring the company to pay
an annual rental:
"The ordinance passed by the council
at its last meeting in regard to our use
of the bridges is very remarkable and
> which we cannot accept.
Its terms are prohibitive. The coun?
cil seems to forget that the railway
company becomes a regular taxpayer,
contributing its part of taxes on its
property as any other citizen. In ad?
dition to this the council imposes a
licence tax of $25 per year on each car
we operate, and they seem to forget
that as the city grows its revenue in?
creases by the operation of additional
ears. Under the' ordinance passed the
burden imposed on the companv would
be enormous after five years. With the
regular citv taxes, the special license
tax on twenty cars, and the bridge tax
the total would be about $2.500 per an?
num. ? ..
"The offer of Mr.- Darling to contrib?
ute $10,000 to the Twenty-eighth street
crossing was extremely liberal and I
fear is not fully apprecited by some ot
"It is not customary for cities to
Impose class legislation on any Indus?
try to carry on Its internal Improve?
ments for the benefit of the public I
have a letter from the mayor of Bal
timore in which he says that city has
never required any contribution from
the street car companies in the con?
struction of the many bridges they
have, or required any special taxes
for crossing them. Toll bridges are
getting to be things of the past, and
such a thing is out of the question-in
a progressive city. .
"There is a very expensive bridge
crossing James river in Richmond, but
no special tax is required from the
street car companies for crossing it.
nor do I know of a case oh record
where they are especially taxed for
"The council has over-valued this
bridge feature. We hope that the cnun
cil will reconsider its action at its
next meeting. If not we will he com?
pelled to fake the matter before the
American cavalrymen forced their way
over the rough mountain trails this
morning and encountered the Spanish
infantry in a dense thicket on a high
plateau almost overlooking the city ,.f
Santiago de Cuba/and routed them af?
ter a sharp battle lasting one hour.
This afternoon, strongly reinforced
by the arrival of additional forces, the
?avalrymcn held a'position a little more
than five miles' from the Spanish

Practically two battles were fought
at the same time, one by the Rough
Riders under the immediate command
of Colonel Wood on the top of the plat?
eau, and the other on .the hillside, sev?
eral miles away, by the regulars, with
whom was General Young.
The expedition started from Juragua

miles east of Morro Castle, which was
the first place occupied by the troops

derstanding being that the Cubans un?
der General Castillo would co-operate
with him. but the latter failed to ap?
pear until the fight was nearly finished.
Then they asked permission to chase
the fleeing Spaniards, but, as the vic?
tory was already won, General Young
refused to allow them to take part in
the fight. , , ' .

Spaniard exposed himself. His aim
was sure arid two of the enemy were
seen to fall under his fire. Just as
he was preparing to take another shot
and .shouting orders to Iiis men at th
same time, his revolver dropped from
his hand and he fell to the ground
with a ball through his body. Hi
troop was badly disconcerted for I
moment, hut. with all the strength he
could muster, he cried "Dont mind mr.
hoys, go ahead and fight." He was
carried from the field as soon as pos?
sible and lived only a few hours.
Lieutenant Thomas, of the same troop,
received n wound through the leu

The troops that were in the thicket
were not long in getting into the midst

sent a deadly fire in return,
though most of the time they could
not see the enemy. After ten or fifteen
minutes of hot work the tiring fell off
some, and Lieutenant Roosevelt or
dered his men back from the thick
into the trail, narrowly escaping
bullet himself, which struck a tr
alongside his head.
It was evident that the Sparlard
were falling back and changing their
position, but their fire continued at In
tervals. Then the troops tore to th
front and into more open country than
where the.enemy's fire was comin
from. About this time small squad
commenced to carry the wounded from
the thicket and lay them in a more pro
tected spot on the trail until they could
lie removed to the Held hospital.
Colonel Wood also ordered his TTotch

he gun was packed had been stnm
