Lisbox, May 1. Reliable news lias been received here
that the Spanish fleet was completely defeated.
Official Spanish Account.
Madrid, May 2. The Governor General of the Philli
pine islands has sent a cablegram to the Minister of War at
Madrid. The date of the message is April 30, and it reads
as follows: "The batteries of the Fort Cavite, near Manila
city, opened on the enemy's squadron at daybreak with a
slow fire. The enemy finally took possession of the fort and
arsenal. It was a brilliant combat,and on account of the
fact that they were so well protected by the fortification the
enemy were obliged to manouver skillfully to get out of the
way. They were repelled and took refuge among the mer
chant ships on the east side of the bay. Owing to the su
periority of numbers of the American ships, our fleet natur
ally met with a severe loss, but tine American loss was also
heavy. The cruiser Maria Christina was fired and was com
pletely burned and Capt. Cadarso, her commander, was
killed. The Spanish Admiral has transferred the flag to the
cruiser Isla do Cuba. Another ship, the Don Juan, was
blown up with a great loss of
also destroyed, being completely burned up. All the other
ships were obliged to retreat to avoid being taken by the
enemy and to keep from sinking."
The Second Battle.
Madkid, May 4. According to the Aurora printed this
morning there were two engagements. The seeond one was
lyx'tin after the Americans had landed. In the second battle
the Spanish cruisers Midando and Ulln both suffered
heavily. The authorities in Madrid treat it as a very serious
but honorable defeat.

SIR JOHN MOORE.
The llrave Rolrlirr Died ns lie Had Always
Hoped IIu Would.
Moore was dying. Baird vas severely
wounded. The early winter night was
creeping over the field of battle, and
Hope, gallant soldier tliotif;h ho was,
jnriged it prudent to stay l is hand.
Soult had been roughly driven back.
The transports were crowding into the
barber. It was enough to havo ended a
long retreat with tho halo of victory
and to have secured an undisturbed em
barkation. Meanwhile Moore had been carried
into his quarters nt Cornnu. A mush
attached servant stood with tears run
ning down bis faco ns the dying man
was carried into tho bouse. "My
friend," raid Moore, "it is nothing!"
Then, turning to a member of bis staff,
Colonel Andersen, he paid: "Anderson,
you knew I have always wished to dio
iu this Way. I hope my country will do
nie justice." Only once bis lips quiver
ed and bis voice shook as be said, "Say
to my mother" and then stopped, while
ho draggled to regain composure.
"Stanhope," ho said as his eyes fell cn
his nid-de-canip's face, "remember me
to your sister" the famous Hester
Stanhope, 1'itt's niece, to whom Monro
was engaged. Life waa fast and visibly
sinking, but be mid, "I feel myself go
strong I fear I shall be long dying."
Cut ho was not. Death ramn swiftly
and almost painlessly. Wrapped iu a
soldier's clonk, he was carried by the
light of torches to a grave hastily dug
in the citadel at Cornna, and far off
to tho sown, as the sorrowing officers
stood round the grave of their dead
chief, could bo heard from time to time
the foui.fi of fc't'ult'p puns, yet in sullen
retreat. Thut scene in made immortal
in Wolfe's noble Hues:
Few and short were tho prayers wo said,
And wo spoke not a word of sorrow,
But we steaufristly gazed on the faco that woh
And we liitli rly thought of the mcrrow.
We thought 11s v. e ho!U wed his nnrrow bed
And smoothed down his lonely pillow
That the toei.nd tho Htrangcr would tread o'er
Ami wo tar away on tho billow.
Tlie Strange Illsease Which Attai Jii Loco
"Railway surgcous are learning many
new facts iu regard to the physical re
quirements of railway employees," said
J. K. Mot son of Chicago at the Southern.
"Recently the rai.' nay surgeons of
the United Statessbe a national con

is. J Ut-S3--important that the ears of
railroad employees, and particularly
the ears of locomotive engineers, should
be scientifically tested for natural or ac
quired defects as that their eyes should
be tested for possible color blindness.
'Whistle deafness' is now a common
diseuso cn.oug railroad employees.
Many a railroad accident could be traced
to this peculiar 'wbistlo deafness' if
the truth were known. This disease
makes tho tar of a locomotive engineer
sensitive to the sounds by which bo is
immediately surrounded, but entirely
deaf to sounds of all other kinds.
"Tho same condition is often ob
eirvcd among boiler makers, who can
beer slight ntiisis when the air is ludeu
with tho clatter of hammers upon iron
plates, while they are insensible to the
same sounds in quiet surroundings. Lo
ccuiutivc engineers sometimes have de
fective ears that can detect slight sounds
indicating imperfect working of the ma
chinery, even while tho bell is ringing
cr the wbistlo blowing or both aro in
use. A locomotive, engineer thus afflict
ed should bo relieved of duty for awhile
until the ear has recovered its normal
condition, enabling it to discriminate
between sounds according to their exact
relative volume, pitch and intensity."
