Liont. Victor Blue, whose deeds in t4
and around) Santiago have made him I
- one of the best known officers in the b,
American navy, by force of ciretm
stances was compelled to spend the
greater part of yesterday in Colum- t
bin. Lieut. Blue came here from b
Jack-ionville on his way to lpnd a t
a two days' leave at his hemo in .
. Marion, but missod connection and if
had to remain over until the after- t
noon train. His ship, the c! ptured d
Spanish gunboat Alvarado, is now at i
Jacksonvilie, whero she will take
part in the peace jubilee of that city
The first impression one iceives t
of Lieut. Bluo is that he is a modest
(nd thoroughly reliablo oflicr, like
iso many others the United States has
in their service, and the moro one
talks with him the more cot firmued
becomnes this impression. He makes
one feel that woro he told to do an
-impossible thing by a superior officer,
he would try, anmd keep on trying
with all his might util the inmpossi
-bility of the feat became manifest to
his commander or all the mi ains in
his power weto exhausted. C
- Lint. Blue told how he wa,s able '
to penetrate the Spanish lines and
got the information about Cervera's ~
fleet :for Admiral Sampson. Ac
cording to his own account it was"
* i simple enough matter. All one
had to do was to land and t hen,-with I
eor four gu idos sent out in ad.
*vanelaaq out for-a point from whichi
Santiago liarzior could be viewed.
"It was not very hbard to elude the C
Spanish," he said, "for we asked our
wny. of the people ie o were friendly ~
to orir cause, aind when we came near C
oiln of the Spanish out sts we would ~
take to the woods. It Avould have t
K Iuilpild;e to ha4O a0b0f m dished
hm at I did with any oth r enemy
thani the Spaniards. They guarded e
onliy the roads. I knew they wore
too lazy to. put pickets q ut in, tihe a
woods. It was in this way tilit I
finally came to the top of a hill from (
which the whole harbor, with OCr- i
vera's ships ly ing there,, was plainly '
to be seen. At tbo fodt of the~ hill 6
in easy rifle range was a camp of v
-Spanirds, vhom we could -see mov. c
Lientg. Blue told whamt he biought I
a goodt joke illustrative of the Span
ish character, but few civilians would
have so considered it had they been I
in his pla1ce at the time. Manmzanillo i
had been commanded, tunder peonalty I
of bombardment, to surrender wvithin 1
three hours. Thn demand and bena I

,fused. Fire was opened. The t
ombardment was kept up for some
m when the commodoro thought <
a saw a flag of truce run up fromt I
Io Spanish lines. He signalled 1
maso firing and ordered Lieut. Blue, 1
'ho was in command of the Alvarado, t
> enter the )ar)or under flog of s
.uce to see what was wanted. He s
id so, but no sooner had be get well i
nder the guns of the Spanish bat. L
)ries than they opened a terrific fire. a
'he other vessels of the fleet stood
y him and the engagement was t
uite warm: Soon oftor the Spanish v
.11 up the white lag (and botit word
the fleet that the protocol had t
een signed that day. That ended c
io light. A few days after that t
,ient. Bino was talking to the Span
ih officers who had participated in t
lie fight and asked: "Why in the t
ovil did you fellows fire on me when t
was under a flg of truce"' I
"Flag of truce!" they exclaimed,
We did not see any flag of truce."
"I hmlieve they were lying," con
nued the lio utenant, "but. that is
io wiay vitlh theimn. Tiey were mad
rhon they saw it Spanish gunboat
ying the Americani flag, amd wamted
>sink her. Then t hey would all
ave sworn t hey lhad not seen t he
ag of truce."
Lieut. Blue, who saw most of Ad
iiral Samipson's b)onibar-dnm.ts of
~uban ports, was asked if a great
eal of damage was done. It, was
nggested1 to bon1 that the explosion~
f shells in land hatteriesi would look
s if the whole earth wats being do
troyed withbout really doing muchi
"Yes," he answered, "it dlid look
a if the devil wais being pilayed with
be batterios, but the only real eff'ect
/as that t.he guns were dlismouittedl
y their foundation being knocked
romt undler them. Tlhe Spaniards
rould r-nn away until the firing wvas

uid set to wvork remountmng the guns.
Ve made those poor- devils do0 a lot
f work by knocking their batteries
o peices anr' necessitating them put
ing the guns back up."
A gorieral dliscussion was had upon
hoe value of torpedo boats in a naval
ngageme'nt. HeI ex pressed the opin1
an'that several of them might copo)

Washaington, D. C., November 17. C
-John W. Tolbert has received
Governor Ellerbo's answer to his r
telegram asking whether the Gover
nor woul afford him protection from I
0mob violenco in returning to his d
home at McCormick, S. C. Tho
Governor's reply is regarded by Tol. t
brt as a practical admission that! Ih (
Governor cannott afford him protc. f
tion, atud, there-fore, it. is said, it is C
not likely that he will jeopardizo his C
lie by returning to his home iii the1
presont stato of excited feeling. Up
to this timo no defilit.o plawn.. with
rospect to the prosecution of the par
tivilpants in th Ie iotons provo im"Ns
against J. W. Tolbert, havo been do
cided upon. The fact that Tolb"rt.
is the asistiat poitimastor at me- p
CormIch, ani iot the ostmaster,
may have an im porntant bearing oni
the case. Assistants to fourth class
post imastoers are niot recognized byi
the hlliw as oilicers of ihe government,
t.h:y being appointeatd anid pahid by
the o.stmaiister. Ini the postoflico de.' I
part nmnt they are recogniized as is
collaneous oemployes. Assi tant u Uni
ted State's Attorney Cochrman, from

T1he caso of B. II. Bunting, United C
