Washington, June 4.-From early
morning, when the first newspaper
appeared on the street containing
the brief statement of the sinking of
the Merrimac in Sdntiago harbor, the
afficials of the navy awaited with in
terest official confirmation from Ad.
miral Sampson. In the afternoon
the story came, lacking .in detail; it
is true, but giving in rough outline a
sketch of American heroism that will
live through generations to come.
There is no doubt that the name
Hobson is destined to be bracketed
with that of Cushing among Ameri
ca's naval heroes and, indeed, it was
the opinion of the majority of officers
who scanned the Associated Press
account of the sinking of the Morri
man that the exploit surpassed in
brilliancy and as an exhibition of
cool daring even Cushing's famous
attack upon the ram Albemarle.
Reward sure and adequate is await
ing these American heroes ann Act
ing Secretary Allen has so pledged
himself after consultation with Sec.
rotary Long, who is still confined to
his room by a lame leg. Medals and
promotion are the leastthey can ox
poet at the hands of a grateful peo
ple. Moreover they will not languish
long in a Spanish prison if the au
thorities here can bring about their
relealso, for half an hour after Samp
son's bulletin was displayed on the
walls of the navy department, Col.
(Cartei-, as the adjutant general, -had
taken the preliminary steps to arrange
for an exchange of prisoners, and
was learning just how many Spanish
officers and enlisted men were still
held'in captivity at Fort McPherson,
Ga., where they had been taken from
the prizes captured 'by the American
In addition to those the navy has
just turned over to the military au
thorities at Fort Monroe, for safe
keeping, another Spanish office-,
supposed to be of high rank, but who
has so far managed to conceal .his
identity. The officials are confident
that they have more than enough
Spanish officers to offer as ransom
for the one American oficer and
seveo' enlisted men hold by Corvera.
PRCAIsE FORl ADMIRIAL OREvRA.
The oflicors one andl all took note
of the generous recognition by the
Spanish admiral of the bravery of
the Americana and his kind treat
ment of the prisoners, and it can be
gnaranteed that the admiral's lines
will fall in as pleasant placos as any
captive has a right to exp)ect
should ho be overcomo in the end
andfocedtosurrender to Sampson.
The naval situation is believed to
be .entirely satisfactory. Notwith
staliding the Spanish reports of the
clearing away of the Merrinmac it is
not believed for an instant that
Sampson will submit to losing this so'
dearly purchased advantage, and he
can be relied upon to prevent the no
moval of the obstruct,ion. With the
Spanish fleet caged inside the har
b)or, there to r-emain until they are
starved out or surrender, Sampson
will be free to detach most of his
powerful squadron for servico else
where. This moans, according .to
common belief, an immnediato attack
upon San Juan.
Peace signs havo been multiply

in the tone of the Spanish pres', and,

Naval Constructor Hobson, whose
name is on every lip in Washington
tonight, is well-known at the 'navy
department, as he served in the bu
reau of construction for soveral years.
His avsociates regard him as combin
ing great ability as a student with
tho eccentricity often accompanying
HOBSON, OF ALABAMA.tl
It was remarked by one of the
chief officials of the department to
night that Hobson was a man who
held naval regulations concerning
matters of form in contempt, and
was oblivious to oflicial rules. These
daro devil characteristivs were offset,
however, by his recognized ability in
all branches of naval science, par
ticularly architecture. Although the
youngest.man in his class at the
Naval Academy, he graduated at the
head of the class, a signal honor,
which led to hi being sent by the
Government for a course in the naval
schools of Europe. 1oro he gained
new honors. On returning to this
country he served with the depart
mont and also saw sott service, and
about a year ago became instructor
in naval architecture at the Naval
Academy at Annapolis. When the
war broke out ho asked for activo
service and at the same time insisted
on taking the throo naval cadets of
his class with him in order that they
might gain the advantage of practi
cal experienco on shipboard (luring
wAS ABOARD TIE FLAO FHIP.
As a result ho and his three cadets
wore assigned for service on Admiral
Sampson's flag ship. It, was the
prevailing -ex pres.sion at the dopart
mont tonight that Hobson was just
the character to take the leandin such
a hazardous fent as that of sinking
the Merrimac. It is presumed that
Admiral Sampson choso him from
among niiany volunteers, owing to
the fact ilst his expert knowledge of
naval conist ruction wvould perit him i
to sink the Merrimae in such a posi
tion as to priovo) most effective in
blocking the channel.

From naval sources a full eketch

Later ho joined Admiral Bunco on
the flag ship Now York. As a result
of this service he inaugurated the
now system of giving sea duty to
naval constrnctors. He proposed,

Other Kind of FRetional Nomination.
Senator Geo. S. Mower of New
berry propounded a question to the
Democratic Executive Committee at
their meeting last night that favored
a staggerer. At every attempt I
swallow and digest the question the
committee was soized with a violent
attack of political cramp colic. They
spent two hours and a half writing
over the problem during which
10,000 resolutions, more or less,
were introduced and killed, and it
was midnight before they got a final
Horo is a copy of the formidable
question: "Whether or not the sug.
gestion of a candilato by the recent
prohibition convoution makes the
person who is suggested and accepts
a candidate in the Domoratic pri
mary such as is forbidden by the
terms of the pledgo prescribed by
the constitution of the Democratic
party of this State."
Finally Mr. Winkler moved that
the answer be "No, he will not be
debarred." An aye and nay vote
was taken and dreloped a tie. So.
the motion was lost..
Mr. L. J. Williams introduced the
"As the nominee of the Prohibi
tion faction, yes, he is debarred; if
he is an individual Prohibition can.
didate within the Domocratic party,
no be is not dobarred."
Mr. Dial, of Laurons, introduced
the followihg as a substitute-:
"We interpret the constitution as
disproving factional nominations,
but if the pledge is bigned by.the
candidates as individuals their votes
will be counted." -
This was adopted and the com
mittee sighed with relief, and after
indulging in a little breathing spell
the other business before the coin
