fall in the war were undoubtedly killed at
the bombardment of Matanzas on April
27 the war having been declared by Con
gress to have commenced April 21 Short

some Spanish cavalry at Cabanas thirty
eight miles west of Havana without sus
taining loss nnd on May 1 Dewey won
his world famous victory off Manila af

ish loss has not been reported
Total Losses in Both Armies
Gen Vara del Rey of the Spanish forces
was one of those killed at El Cahey Gen
Toral declined to estimate the total Span
ish losses there It is safe to say that
their loss in killed in battle on land and
sea is several times our loss in dead Ac
cording to the estimate at hand the navy
has lost Killed 1 officer and 18 men in
cluding Cadet Boardman accidentally
shot at Cape San Juan Aug 10 wounded-3
officers and 40 men The army has
lost Killed 23 officers and 213 men
wounded 87 officers and 131G men Total
American loss 24 officers nnd 249 men
killed 90 officers and 1350 men wounded
The estimating of the number of Ameri
can soldiers who lost their lives through
sickness in the war is a more difficult mat
ter because of the lack of complete re
ports from all hospitals At present the
Navy Department has no sufficient data
on the matter As to the army 250
deaths is a conservative estimate
The land that Spain must add to men
and ships in her column of losses includes
Cubas 43319 square miles Porto Rico
contains 3550 square miles and is the
healthiest of all the West Indies Guam
or Guahan is the southernmost and larg
est of the Ladrone group If we select
it as our perquisite in that locality we will
get a fertile piece of ground 100 milej in
circuit thickly wooded and provided vth
a couple of Spanish forts and a roadstead
The Philippines have an aggregate area
of 114400 square miles We have taken
thirty or forty transports in the course
of the war
WANT TO BE ANNEXED
A Strong Feelincr Among Spaniard in
Cuba for Union with Us
A correspondent of the New York Her
ald who visited Havana since the signing
of peace articles between the United
States and Spain says that the sentiment
of Spaniards in the capital is in favor of
the annexation of Cuba to the United
States They realize that if a steady and
strong government is not founded it will
be very difficult for them to remain in the
country representing as they do the
wealthy element They prefer the idea
of annexation to any other kind of rule
for they believe it would be the only thing
which would guarantee order and the pro
tection of all kinds of interests They
state that a government established under
any other conditions would not Inst very
long
The Cuban element representing finan
cial interests and having social standing
who have taken no active part in warfare
have similar ideas and believe also thnt
any other government which miirht hn oc
j tablished in Cuba in which certain radical
elements would participate would precipi
tate groat disturbances nnd render im
possible all efforts for pacification by the
Government Among many of the plain
people thejeeling of annexation is strong
We want to belong to the United States
and not to the Cubans many of them
said to the correspondent
