STORY OF THE BAiTLE.
As Told by Me: Wao Tock a Premie:.t
PA: t I :.
The first connected story of the bat
tle was told to a correspcndent of the
Chicago Chron ce by the cfficers W
the United States revenue cutter Mc
Cullough last Sa'urday rnorning at
Hong Kong. The McUallough Lutk
part in tns battle and her officers had
a good opportunity to see the battle.
They said that the entire Sj.anish fl -et
of ten ships 'was compittely des.royed.
During Saturday night tne vessels
of the American squadron ciept in
side the bqy througa a supposea it z
of mines and torpedoes. They were
not observed by any of the watchers
on the Spanish garrisons until some
stray sparks were emi.ted from the
funnel of the diapatch boat McCal
Taen a few shots were exchanged
with tae garrison on Corregidor 1l
and, but, owing to the darkness, they
were int ffcctive. Tnere was no patrol
established, nor were any st arhii,:ts
placed at the en:rayce to Maza;a Bay.
The vessels of the American eqadrun
never stopped or slowed down until
they had assumed a posntion directly
opposite the city of ManiLa. This was
jtust at day break.
The order of battle assumed by the
Spanish fleet at the. beginning of the
engagement was with all the small
craft inside Cavite barbor, whicna is
prot c ed by stone and timber break
waters and the larger-sips maziouver
.ing c ff Caevire and Manija.
*The American battle line was led by
~the flagship 011 mpia and the cruiser
Raleigh. The Boston, Baltimore, Con
cord and Petrel and the reve nue cutter
McCulloch followed. The Amterican
deet in easy speed approached the
~Spanish ships, wh:ch were drawn out
an two lines, tne Rei a Maria Cristina,
the flagship in the center.
As the dawn broke and the position
of the American squaaron was disczv
ered the Spanaish fleet immnediatelt
opened fire, suppo:ted by the Cavite
forts. The Spanisrcs fired the first
sbot. The challenge was given by the
Rti2a Maria Cristina
The Olymopia repiitd and at once the
e ntire American fleet was in action.
'The Spanish ships did not hesitate in
their fire, and the Cavite batteries let
.:oose treir hea'vy guns. The best gun
ners in the American fl::et mann~ed
ihe most destrucnxve we apons on the
snips, and the havec wrought was
frightful. The engage ment soon be-.
The marksmanshin of thK- Spanish
g anners steened to be w iid from the
outset. Meanwhile the min snips of
tae American aqiauron were pourinig
in a deadly fire, ooioureat ex-cution
both in the Spas:sa? fleet and in tne
Cavite tortnncation un sand.
The American cruiser Baltimore, at
ot-e period of tne engsgement, re
eived the brunt of the enema's fire
and suffered the most of any vessel in
ite Ameuican equad oc. From five

SCHLEY MAY JDIN SAM PSON.
Stated the Two Fic et 9 Will U.it t and Meet
The sa'ish Flotilla.
Tne Washington correspondent of
The Herald says.
Facts all point to the theory that
therte is to be a union of warspips un
der Raar Admiral Sampson with those
under Commodore Scthley as a point
in the ccean previously agreed upon
and that the scouts are to report to
them the location and direction of the
Spanish ships. It is not believed to be
possiblie that the Spanish ships will be
able to avoid ali of the scouting ves.
As soon as Rear Admiral Sampson
lea.'ns the wheregbouts of the Spanish
firet and the direction in waich it is
sailiL g he can get under way to in
terc-t it. throwing his scouts out in
fr ont so as to cover a wide expanse of
sea and follo wing with his armor ves
sels ins the line of battle ready to give
fight as soon as they come in contac
wih the enemy.
Opinions differ some what in nava
circles as to the destination of the
Spanish fleet. Many naval officers
can scarely concceive it to be possible
~tat the Spanish admiral would be no
rash as to bring his vessels within
reach of such an over whelming force
as that which Rear Admiral Sampson
could bring against him.
They believe that if he has held a
westerly course he counts on being
able to reach Porto Rico and get his
vessels safely into the harbor of San
Juan before he can be attacked by an
over weiming American force. When
ne left S:. Via.censt the Amercan force
was divided. R sar Ad miral Sampson
apparently was f ully occupied with
the blockade of Cuban ports and the
only vessels available to be sent
against him were inec uader Comn
RESOLVED TO EVADE CUBA.
Oe c.m p u y Which Will Find no Te onible
in Get ing Becruits.
The Savanahian, says the Savannah
News, received a letter from a lady
friend in a n~eighboring city yester
day, in which sne spoke of the war,
and incidentally the meeting there of
a colored company of infantry, called
together by their captain because of
te sag gestion that a certain nutuboer
of colored volunteers would be called
for. Ts e company met and after due
d&liberation passed resolutions with
regard to the matter. It was evident
frm the tenor of the resolutions that
the coampany was on the war path,
atd wanti d to get into Cuba at once.
lhere'ore, the framer of the resolu
non-s started out by making them as
warm as possible. There was no
doib. as to what the company wanted
to de, but this is what they said in the

Several stor ies have been published
about the detection of Spanish spies
upon our warships, and recently the
liscovery of an effort on the part of a
member of the crew of the Puritan to
blow up one of her magazines has been
variously published. In his special
:orrespondence from the Key West
feet, Mr. Craper, of the Atlanta Con
stitution's staff, gives the details of
the detection and arrest of the Span
iard as follows:
Tae nerson concerned ie a saffron
skinnedl young man by the name of
Calos Yglesias, who is about twenty
seven y ears old; who was born in Ha
vana of a Spasish father and a Cuban
mother; and who, af ter knocking
about the world all his life, enlisted in
the United States navy four or five
years ago, and has been in it since,
with permission to quit whenever he
A week ago last Sunday Yglesias
was the acting storekeeper on tbe Pu
ritan while the boat was cruising off
Matanzas. His rank is that of a sec
nd-class fireman, and he has always
nd the confidence of his superiors to
the extent warranted by his position.
Qn Sunday afternoon he was disco7
ered by one of the monitor's mess boys
industriously boring holes in the side
of the for ward magazine~ with an aug
er, and the executive cli rr being n
tied, had him arrested. 0 ae of pock
ets was bulging with cotton waste, and
the other contained 75 heys of various
sorts. He was in his oare feet, and it
is said that there was evidence on his
oart to set fire to a wooden grating
which connected with the il rr of the
magazine. The arresting cificer was
Gunner's Mate Finn.
Since then the half breed has been
eaflned, heavily ironed, in the Puri
a's brig, and Captain Herrington
oas sent a full report of the occurrence
o Admiral Sampson. Up to the time
this is being wrialen the latter has not
ordered a c2urt martial, and I under
t and that rhe reason for delay is tae
evidence of insanity sh,.n by the
prisoner since nis incarc-ration. His
scheme to blow up the Puritan dis
played no sympton of gcnius, and sa
far as his mates know, he had no mo
tir'e in wrecking the ship. Tne pr-es
ent situation simply means that if he
s ad judged a lunatic by the cour a yetl
to be assemoled, he wat be stfnt to ant
asylum, and if he is found to be sane
ne will be shot.
In the meantime he will stay in the
brig, and until j i gment is passed on
birn no man wil kno w the extent of
i-s guilt. Taere several other men

our ships, but their presernce is not a
menace in any Eense or the word

Commodore Watson Friaay after

General Pando, the commander
of the Spanish forces in tne field,
withdrew the Spanish garrison from

or San Salvador, is situated about
sixty mles nortn west of the city ot
Santiago de Cuba. It has a popuila
tion of about 7,000 souls in time o:
peace. There is no knowing what its
population is at present.
The Spanish merchants and resi
dents of Bayamo, it appears, were in
great fear of plunder and massacre,
but General Garcia issued a proclama
tion declaring that the property of
$paniards and their ci.vil rignts would
be respected. This general also per
sonally assured the leading Spaniards
of the place that they were perfectly
safe in remaining at Bayamno, with the
result that tousiness went on as usual
and tratquiiity prevails there. Tne
people began firinging in vegetables
and meat irom the cjuntry and the
prices of provisions fell. Na cases of
outrage have been reported.
General Pando is understood to be
at Manzantilo, near the River Cante,
with the main bcdy of the troops
whose operations he has been direct
ing in eastern Cuba. Up to April 27,
aoout 6,000 men, or one third o: Gene

A dispatch from Key West, Fla.,
says the government tug Leyden,
Capt. J. H. Angus, steamed into port
Thursday morning, and those on
board told the following story of a
desperate encounter with Spanish
troops on the northern coast of Cuba:
The Leyden le't Key West Monday
afternoon with a party of insurgents
under Gen. Baldamore Acosta and in
ciuding five Cuban scouts under the
leadership cf Capt. J. N. Dorst of the
United States cavalry. The Leyden
also carried a large quantity of arms
and ammunition. Tne tug landed
de men, with four boxes of ammuni
tio'i and two horses. Gen. Acosta
also landed and penetrated to the in
terior, where he communicated with
the forces of the insurgents. The
Leyden lay to outside until 5 o'clock
in the morning, when, observing a
troop of Spanisi infantry approach
ing bhe put to sea and got safely away.
The saime niht she proceeded to Ma
tanzas and Tuesday afternoon landed
another small party near there. Fear
ing attack by the Spaniards, she look
ed for the minitors Terror and Amphi
trite which are on the blockade in
that vicinity, but being unable to
Jocate them the Leyden returned to
the original landicg place, reaching
.here early Wednesday morning.
Here she was met by Acosta and
scout 2J0 Cubans, half of whom were
armed with rdies. They united with
the men on the tug and an attemp.
was made to land tae remaining arms
and m?!n, when a troop of 200 of the
Villa Vicesa cavalry swooped down
on them and a tierce engagement of a

Spain HatesaPoor Snowing aisEara
tine PFwe r.
Not since the battle of Lepanta in
1571 has Spain given a good account
of herself in naval war-are. In that
battle, with the aid of the Genoese and
Venetian fleets administered such a
crushing defeat to Turkey that it de
stroyed the power of the sultan on the
seas for all time to come. That was
the last of Spain's naval victories.
Seventeen years later she sent her
boasted Invincible Armada, the great
est collection of warships ever reen,
against England. What the storm off
tue English coast left of this splendid
flotilla Francis Drake, the dragon of
the sea, disposed of.
In 1704 Spain lost Gibralter and
E agland has held it ever since. Three
months after its capture the allierd
forces of Spain and France tried to
retake the fortress and lost 10,000 men
in the endeavor. The effort was re
pested by Spain alone in 1720 and
and again in 1727, both times with
disastrous results. France came to
the help of Spain again in 1779 but the
English beat them back from Gibral
tar with heavy losses. In 17818Spain
once more attacked Gibraltar and suT
fered the loss of 40,000 men. France
again aided her in 1782, but the allies
were uiterly defeated. Spain since
that time has given up hop; of recap
Luring G bralter.
On July 31, 1718, Spain lost to Eng
land t wenty-nine battleships at Messi
na. In 1780 Rodney administered a
severe defeat to the Spanish fleet off
Cape Vincent, where her warships
were recently gathered. A far worse
thrashing was given her by that great
est of all sea-fighters, Horatio Nelson,
at Trafalgar, where with a far inferior
fleet he almost annilated the combin
ed naval strength of France and
Spain's latest naval defeat before the
oattle of Manila was in 1866 when
Peru, with a few ships, most :of them
borro wed from Cniii, utterly defeated
a stronger Spanish fleet. Admiral
Peleja, rne Spanish commander, was
so mortified at the result that he re
tired to his ca bin and ble w out his
Commodore De wey and his gallant
men have added another to the long
unbroken and dismal list of Spanish
der eats at sea. Admiral Sampson will
soon add another.
