Argus Company A Correspondent
Remembers His Paper
to the Last.
SUPPOSED THEY SAILED LAST NIGHT
Columbia and Tale Take Reinforce
ment! to Santiago, Which Will Be
Followed by the Deepest Interest In
Bock Inland The Sixth a Favored
Begiment. ' j
Charleston, S. C, Julv 8. To the
Rock Island Aki-s: On board the
Columbia; Company A on the Yale.
Good bve to all! Rosev.
Today's Associated Press dispatches
elsewhere tell of the sailing of the
Vale and Columbia this afternoon.
According to these greetings it mav
le inferred that Company A. of Hock
Inland, has set sail from Charleston
for Santiago to reinforce Gen.
Shaffer. A dispatch from C'ainn
Alger last night contained the follow
ing: Information received here in
dicates that 1,800 men, composing a
regiment and a battalion of Gen. Gar
retson's brigade, left Charleston.
S. C, today for Santiago on the
cruisers Yale and Columbia. Two
regiments of Garret sou's brigade, the
6th Illinois and the 6th Massachu
setts, are at Charleston, aud the un
derstand here is that those who
left today are the Massachusetts regi
ment and one battalion of the 6th
Illinois. Gen Garretson telegraphed
the war depai-tment that he would
like to have the Grand Duchess sent
from- Norfolk to Charleston to ac
commodate the 800 men remaining.
The slight delay experienced in start
ing tor Santiago was because of the
inability to procure the necessary ra
tions promptly. Garretson's brigade
was under orders to start with ouO
rounds of ammunition to each man.1'
Serious Realization Comes.
With the departure of the boys from
Charleston comes the serious realiza
tion to relatives and friends' in Rock
Island that their service to the coun
try is at last to be an actuality.
While from their departure from
Rock Island in the latter part of
April, their every movement has been
attended with anxiety on the part of
those at home, yet all along decpite
the ambition on the part of the sol
diers themselves to get into the thick
of the tight, there has been, neverthe
less, an abiding feeling in the hearts
of those at home, that perhaps the
worst would not come. This spirit
cannot lie misunderstood. It is not
selfishness, it is not undue fondness
for our own. Patriotism is the
strongest and purest where it. tugs at
the heart strings. The mother who
gives her son to the nation with the
prayer that he may be safely returned
to tier, does not oegrmige the sacri
fice, nor does she ask that he shall not
share in the perils that others have
undergone if necessary that
honor inav Come to his country's llar.
It is a source of comfort to know that
the paug of parting cannot lessen the
pride that Rock Island feels at this
time. In the stern appreciation of
what war means in sacrifice, the city's
pride iu her soldier boys is heightened
ami stout hearts at home will le with
those at the front, while prayers for
the protection and safety of loved
ones will atteud them until, glory
crowned, they come back again.
