A good stirt had boon mndo townrtl It, too, by tho charge of n $5 membership fro to the auxiliary, to which all tho girls' irlcnds readily responded. 1 xVlien Jeykll tsland was proposed for a Ihw pllnl site the Ico Atixllhuy decided thnttlicio 1 w as llioplnep for their plant, but JoyHl Islnnd wan gUon up. and ngnln they woro left without iiilellnlto objecthe ioliil for their endenors. Nothing dlsoounged, they determined to manufacture Ice for the soldiers In the camps, but on liiiestlgntion found that It would bo cheaper and better to bin tho leo from dealers. Those four young women thereupon went at tho (lovermnent of the United Statos, which politely concealed w hut must hno been a eon sldenblo shock of nmaiomen t, nnd ngroo J. with thnnks, to undortnko what Ico trnsportatlon was necessary nt Its own excnse. In this way thoy supplied and aro still supphlng tho hospitals nt Jacksonville, Chlckamnugn and Miami, Not only this, hut nt Jacksonville, whero tho drink ing wntor Is toplil on noconnt of tho shallow ness of tho sourc6s of supply, the auxiliary has built special (nnks for tho use of the w ell sol diers, nnd theso tanks are kept cold by the uso of n ton of Ico per day In addition to tho ton used In tho hospital. This was nil bolng paid for right along by tho receipts of tho circle, which woro augmented suddenly by a check for JO. 000 from Mrs. Alfred Corning Clark of Oooperstown. Out of this a large supply of Icowossont to Miss Barton at Santiago, Tresldont Morsoof the Consolidated Ioe Company paying half tho oxponse ot trans portation, And there1 was still monoy left In the treasury, so it was decided to giro the navy Its turn and 1.000 tons of Ico was sent to tho blooknding squadron oft llio north coast ot Cuba, together with 8200 worth of carrots, boots, lemons, ohooolato, nnd Aome books. Dr. B. L. Lamar sailed with this cargo, represent ing tho society. Meantlmo tho membership of tho auxiliary was growing, contributions kept coming In from tho sub-auxlllarlos whleh had been start ed In two of tho summer resorts Inthls vicinity, and Miss Bohenck's endless chain of lettors was making tho Postmaster of Babylon bald and pouring Its stream ot dlmos Into tho Ico fund. Ono of the founders nolvoly admits that It at tho first thoy had known tho real cost of an Ico plant they would not have attempted so largo a contract. Now, having done all that they have dono. thoy find ttlcmeolves nblo to promise to tho Bed Cross ship Missouri, which is expoetod to sail In October, an Ico plant whleh shall cost S5.C00. In all. this auxiliary has received moro than $10,000 and Hb members haxo the satisfaction of knowing that nearly nil their capital Is il raw ing good Interest In aetual dally sen Ice dono for tho mon at tlm front. This auxiliary Is, ot course, an oxcoptlonally successful one, chlelly owing to the fact that Its founders have given up overy other consideration to devote them solves to this work, but It Is true ot a majority of the clrolos that results have boon In oxcesa ot anticipation. An nuxillary which has been highly successful by tho organization ot sub auxlllarles Is tho Tlrst Pennsylvania, which has thirty brnnehos in dlfforont towns and cities, and which a short tlmo ago sont a splondld as sortment of necossarles to headquarters. The following list shows tho nchloemcnts of tho various auxiliaries, but lt Is not bynoy means complete Bo rapidly liavo consign ments been coming In to hondquirtcrs during tho last few days that tho general rcconls from which this list Is taKon hoo not boen kept up. and many contributions which hao been rocolvednro thorofore unnoldab!y omit ted. In tho case ot tho recent acquisitions to the number of auxiliaries, returns hae not been received, because there has not boon sufficient time since tlitKrienv oomors ha-o been notllled what thoy nro expected to supply, for them to do the work of organization, collection of funds and prepara tion ot material. Returns arc coming, how ever, from day to day. and Miss Hoffman, who keops tho general record, wishes It understood that all contributions aro duly sot down for record and that at tho earliest possible oppor tunity the record will bo brought up to date. At presont the entire forco nt headquarters Is busy at tho important work of getting tho sup plies on hand to tho places where they will do tho most good. This Is tho list: Auxiliary No. 1-Mrs W. 8.

Bf .Jonx's, Newfoundland, July 10,-Tho prog ress ot tho Spanish-American war Is being fol lowed with keen Interest by the officers ot the British naval squadron In .Newfoundland waters. It Is, perhaps, not known to most Americans, but tho fact Is that because ot tho difficulties botweon Frauoe and England to sardine Ashing rights on tho west coast ot this Island both nations maintain n squadron ot threo or ftrarshlps on tho coast during the fish ing soaaon. This year tho British ships are the Oordolla (flagship), Pollonn, Partridge and Col umbine, and for tho past flvo weeks tho Oor dolla has been lying In this harhor. The Com modore ot tho squadron Is tho Hon. M. A, Bourko, brother ot tho Earl of Mayo. He was Captain ot (he battloshlp Victoria whon she was rnmmod nnd sunk by (he Cnmpordown In tho Mediterranean flvo years ago, nnd he wns only saved after standing at his post till his voescl sank beneath him. no ami tho officers of his present command con verse freely on t ho naval operations ot the pres ent war with their friends In tho elty. Tho event In tho whole strugglo which ovoked th warmest admiration from them whs Hobson's dash with the Morrimno Into almost certain doath In the mouth of Bantlngo harbor. Thoy aro unstinted In their prnlso ot him. In British navnl anhals they say thoro aro few deeds re corded nobler (ban (hat of Hobson and his Httlo band, and the whole eight would bo deco rated with the Victoria Cross It tho tichleo uiont had been performed under (ho Union Jack. The destruction ot Corpora's fleet also ovoked tho most Intonso Interest among these officers. They could scarcely Orodlt the reports that the Americans wiped ont his elx ships with tho loss of only ono man, nnd when the details of tho engagement readied horo their expres sions of nmozoment woro loud and prolonged. After carefully studying tho maps and artistes dealing with tho famous sen fight onoot tho Cordelia's Lieutenants analyzed tho situation thus: "Osrvora, whatever his motlvot In entering Santiago, committed a fatal blunder in coming out aaaln In daylight no should have done as Dewey did nt Manila perfected his formation under cover ot night. Dewey, without pilots or trustworthy charts, book his ships (hrough Oorregldor Bay at midnight, and Corvera, free to choose his own tlmo, able (o make nil his own plans In his own port, with scores of San tiago Oshormon who would mako admirable pilots, was almost criminally careless In not stealing forth during the night, wheu nil the chances ot gottlng through tho blockaders would have been In his favor. Tho Amerlenn searchlights would havo discovered him. no doubt, but tho TJnltod Statos (runners could not havo mado anything like the effective practice they did In tlm daylight Oervora soems also to have been badly Informed of tho movements ot Bamp son'e squadron. If informed at all. Tho Spanish batterios at Socapa. elovated as they were, should havo observed that tho New York went off on a reconnolssaneo that morning, nnd that by steaming In her direction his fleet would be out of reach almost of tho other American ships and havo only her to contend with. Cervern had a splendid game to play; he could demoralize the whole American plan of cam paign If he escaped, and lead the United States fleet as lively a dance ns ho did for the tour weeks prior to his reaching Bantlago ; nnd yet he seems to havo neglected the most ordlnnry precautions nnd to have plunged blindly out Into tho midst ot his waiting foes, only to be nltorly Worsted within an hour. " Cervora's defeat was duo to several causes. In the first place, his ships were evidently very foul, and could not mako anything llko tholr proper Brood. In tho next place, there seems to have boen no plan of action prepared before hand by tho fleet Captains, tholr wholo policy being to cut and run. In tho third place, tho Spanish gunnery must ha o been execrably bad If, at the short rango nt which the contestants were engaged, there wns so Httlo damage dono tho American ships, whllo the othors wero rid dled llko stoves; and. In the fourth place, even had othor conditions been equallred. the Span iards have shown, all through this wnr, that they are no match in fighting or mcmruvrlng ships with the Americans. Vthy, one can scarcely bnllevo that so little ilamngo was do-io tothoYankeo fleet 1 Itsecmo ns If no matter howwlldly they fired, the 8pntilarrt3 could not avoid hitting their adversaries nnd spreading over their deokB (he wreck and ruin so plen (Ifully bestowed on (he uufortutiafe Spanish cruisers. "Allowing even for nowspnper exaggerations. It Is undeniable that the American shlpi wero fought In grand stylo. The deelopment of the bit of strategy by which Ctmcm was tempted out beyond the range of tho Bhoro bnttorles, on whloh ho rolled for help, was crnnd. and tho Spaniard was ontgoneralled completely. Of ooursc the morale of tho crews counted for a good deal. The Americans wero flunhidwlth the recollection of Dewey's biiccpsi. while tho Spaniards were dispirited In n c orrespondlng degron. Btlll thoy should hao mntlrt a better fight than they did. for It resulted In n'vi hole snlo slaughter of tho unfortunate wroichos aboard tho Spanish ships, whoiea they should havo given n fairly good account of themnelies. The Americans lind marvellous good fortune, am) Bhonld not overlook the fact. "Tho lessons of (ho fight ftrn prnetleilly nil. CorverVs Bhtps. being hut urmorcd cruisers, could not hope to make head DCilnst battleships oppo-lng them whoso moro formidable, nrmnincht nnd Iron olftd protection rendered them Invulner nblo almost against the projectiles of their enemloi. But If n erulsor onnnot fight phe should bo nblo to run. nnd (hat Is the weak point hi Con era's po.o; he did neither one nor the other. It speaks forcibly ngnlnst the con dition, equipment and hniidllng of his nhlim that not ono of them got rtwdy. It Is not HVoly that In any war betwoen dm great powers rueli a result would occur, and naval strategists are not llkoly tonltertholr plans very much nor constructors to chango their designs beenusn of tho occurrences of this war. "The fight has, however, proed tho wisdom ot (he British policy of building n larger pro portion of battleships thin tho other naval powers, for they seem to glvn tho best all round rculK If not too largo nnd unwind). ThoUbltud Btntcs. having only tuo armored cruisers tho Nw York nnd BrooMn-uill llkoly strengthen that arm of tho service, hut lt Is almost n certainty tha( thoy will devote their energies (o tho construction of a u(t of battleships llko tho Massachusetts and Indlimi. The Spanish torpedo-boat dcMrojers Becm to havo mado no figure in tho fight ntnll ; Indeed, tho torpedo, as an nffdnstvn nenpon, npppni to havo been overlooked. The crevssof tho de stroyers were probably rattled by thu pounding tholr oonsorts wero gctdnc, nnd wore not brought Into action properly. In their cnsi, as In that of tho cruisers, it will not be wlsn (o draw conclusions as to tho utility of these craft in futuro Eoa fights from their performances In the Santiago battle." In discussing tho progrens of tho war hionii of tho clubs, a few evening ogo, Commodoru Bourko said; "Tho main cauiu of the utter overthrow of the Spaniards hat, been tholr o,vn Indecision and lack of a dellnlto )Kllcy Tlio Aroorloan papers have, vory unwisely, heaped much ridicule upon their Navul Strategy Board, who nctad as expert ad Isers to t ho non-sen ion Secretory of tholr Navy Department, iiiidflllod a rAlo whloh no floet cominaudor could horo to do with advantage, In vlow ot tho impossibility ot his koeplng himself Informed ot tho move ments ot his enemies. Homo 9uch board was just what tho Spaniards neodod, which would arrange a definite plan ot campaign and pro. vide for Its bolng oITccthplycarrled out. Butthe declaration of war kouniud to demoralize tholr wholo naval machinery s they kopt tack ing and filling, moved (heir ships about without any definite purpose, and nuc JecUd to avail of the one opportunity whloh presented Itself to strike thetr en emy In n vulnerable spot That would havo been to attack tho north Atlantlo seaeoast cities, Portland, Boston, Now Tork, Ac whleh could have been dons by sending Camarn's squadron across to these waters at the earns time that Corvera was despatched to Cuba. Though the Americans acted with commend ablo promptitude In Improvising on auxiliary squadron out of merchant steamers. It It open to quesdon as to whether they would have been ot much value in resisting Camars's armored ahlps. The Americans would have been at a further disadvantage by not knowing tho point he Intendod to tnko, and they could not have mossed together very easily enough real warships to prevent his making a dash Into one ot these ports and destroying millions ot dol lars' worth ot property. "It you recall tho panlo which prevailed In (hese coast cities at the tlmo Oervora was com ing across, the sowing of tho harbors with mines and (ho utilising ot scores of tugs to patrol the coast you can easily Imagine what would havo been the result had the Span lards adopted that polloy. Hero was Schley scouring (he Caribbean Sen. (he four American llnors circling about In mldocoan, and Bamp on In reserve to defend the military base at Tampa, with tta thirty transports find Immense stores ot war munitions. Yet Cervem escapod thom all. He crossed tho Atlantlo without being sighted, nnd wns actually Inside tho Amorlcan second patrol line when reported from Martinique by tho Harvard's Captain as hull down west ot thst port Then ho ran to Cnracoa without Interference, and from thero to Santiago. He like wise dodged the Yankee fleet. A Httlo bettor judgment, or more noeurate Infor mation, and he might havo mado for n&vana and destroyed the small gunboats and tugs whloh then comprised the blockading squadron off that port, for nil tho effective fighting ships had boen withdrawn to crdtse In quest ot him. find Cam am played tho same garno off the New England coast, with only a hastily converted squadron under Commodore Howell to oppose him, ships would hove had to be withdrawn from Cuban waters (o strengthen Howell, the naval forcos of both nations would have been equalized, and we might have seen somevery different engagements result Still, nothing can detract from tho admirable raonnor In whleh the Amerioan naval authorities rose to the need ot tho occasion, and prov ded men, munitions and ships for the varied purposes which tho opening ot hostilities Imposed upon (hem. "TheUnKod States havo reason to be eroud of tholr naval commanders. In every Instance thoy havo proved themselves men ot tried courage and strategy. I think that the specta cle of Dewey setting out from Hong Kong to right tho Spanish fleet In the shelter ot known batteries and destroying It without the loss ot ono ot his own men Is an achievement un equallod in naval history in its lack ot Injurs to tho victors. The Santiago fight Is another amazing encounter, and It Camarn and Watson Bhould meet I look for the extinction ot Spain as a naval power. It Is a great pity that the American nowspnpors hove been so prone In the past to rldlculo thetr own warships, for It has been proved beyond doubt that In seaworthi ness and strength ot construction they ore the equal ot any. The record ot the Oregon In ntenmlng from San Francisco, round Capo Horn, to Key, West 12.000 miles, without starting a rivet, is one of which any nation might feci proud. And tho work entailed on these ships In Cuban waters In tbo past three months has beon very severe, bnt they have come through lt very well, none ot them being obliged to undergo repairs, whllo several are now start ing across the Atlantlo to begin nn aggressive campaign against the Spanish coast. The American humorist will nood to revise thetr opinions of tho usefulness and stability of tholr navy in the light ot the experiences of the past three months. "lam surprised that In tho land operations before Santiago thero was no attempt to tit 1 1 ire a naval gun brigade, as we always do, when POFMble. In tho British service. Tho want of artillery seemed to be Shatter's main difficulty, and If the American bluejackets partake ot the spirit of tho British tors they would bo only too delighted to got the chance of n shot at tho enotny. Howeor. there seems not to havo beon any too harmonious relations botweon the mtlltaryond naval commetideni. which perhaps explains a lot ot things, Sampson's refusal to cntor Sunttago harbor because of the land batteries and mines might at first sight, pcnm to stamp him as a different order of man from Dowey, who boldly dlsro ganlod the onn nnd the cither. But It must be remembered that tho conditions are In nowiso pnrnllcl. At Mnnllu Dewey had un open bay to manoeuvre In, nud the batteries ot Cnvltd wero but little derated above the shoro. At Sintl rtgo, on the other hand, Sampson would havo to enter a narrow channel sowed with mines, and would be exposed to tlio downward Ore of poworful batteries hundreds ot feot nbovo him, to whose destructive fire oh his unprotected docks he oould make no ef fective reply. His course, furthermore, In dlcntee that the enpturo of Hnvana or Ban Juan do Porto BIcowlU not be as oasy a task ns most AmorieatiB think, unloss the Spanish desire for furthor fighting has boen abated by successive defeats. However, from presont ap pearances. It Is unlikely that the conflict will ho nur.tnlno.1 much longer. For Spain It can havo but ono cndlng.rhilo for the United States tho wnr is too costly to be prolonged, Tlio o-spemllturo of over one million dollars a day In carrying It on forms an eloquent nrjiu meut for an early cessation of hostilities, cs polallr when It is taken Into consideration thnt there Is about as much chance of exacting an Indemnity from Spain as there Is of drawing blood from u stone "I think thin wnr shown that the United State will kuo to bo reckoned with In futuro as u went naval powor, and it the Anglo-Amerlenn ulllunco tionr-H fruit tho 12tigllsh-speaklng racoullldomlnuto thu world, making wnr lm IKieslblc in tho future.

HiMTTOK, Va July 20.-JXhors'roaIaiirs number ot wounded soldiers at Fort Monroe, among them many members ot thetfourAJro Anaerican reglmonts ot the regular rmy who took part In tho battle ot Santiago. I have neon and talked with many ot these men. and I have been surprised at tho fraternal feollnjt whloh obtains among them and their wounded whlto comrades. Thoy lounge together undor the trees and reollne upon the grass and walk tho promenades In tlio most brotherly way. As far as I could see there was no race feeling be tween theso men who had been baptised In Spanish tiro under the Stars and Btrlpce and had oomo out otit with wounds whloh some ot them will carry to their craves. This fraternal feeling between the white and black soldiers, who have braved death to gether, Is all the moro notloeablo because ot tho unfriendly disposition ot the Maryland regiment encamped at the same place, the members ot whleh allow no opportunity toes capo them to jibe and Jeor Afro-Amorlcans soldiers and olvlllans, who pass tholr quarters. I had an oxporlonto ot this sort early this morning when, with a bicycle party ot young men and women, school touchers who are taking a summer's course at tho Hampton In stitute, wo roilo through the town of Fort Monroe, and post tho quortora ot this Maryland regiment whon coarse and vulgar remarks were burled at us by whole squads of men, who knew vary well thnt tholr Insolence could not well bo resented. Perhaps whon these same mon havo boon baptized In Spanish flro and havo beon horoleally supported by their black comrades In arms thoy will oxhlblt a nobler and manlier and more gentlemanly disposition toward tholr Afro-Amorican fellow-citizens, and especially toward helpless women ot cul ture and refinement Thero was a groat deal ot curiosity among tho Afro-Amorican population ot Hampton to see some ot tholr number who had fought tho Spaniards In Cuba and hear tholr sldo of the story, and upon tho carnost solicitation ot the Bav.Htohard Bptllar the post surgeon allowed tour of tho men to mako a public statement In tho targe Baptist church ot tho town. The men belonged to tho Ninth and Tenth Caval ry and the Twenty-fourth Infantry. Tho ona from tho Twenty-fourth Inrahtry, Frank M. Hill, was wounded In the hand, and has as a memento the Mauser rlflo bullet that struck him. Another. William H. Brown, had been woundodinthearmt the third had boon inca pacitated for duty by tho deadly malaria con tracted In the trenches before Santiago. Tho worst wounded of tho four was Lewis Bowman ot the Tenth Cavalry, who had two ribs broken by a burotlng Spanish shell before Ban Jnnn. All tour aro only of average Intelligence." nnd (old tholr stories In a modest unassuming, but very graphlo manner. , Mr. Bowmnn said, after describing tho land ing nnd tho trying march to the front: The rough riders had gono on in great glco, bantering us, and good-naturedly boasting that they woro going ahead, to, lick the SpaninrUs without any trouble, and advising us to remain where we wero until they returned, and they would bring back some Bpanlsh heads ns tro phies. Whon wo heard llilng iu the distance, our Captain remarked that some ono ahead was doing good wort.. Tho firing beenmo so heavy and regular that our ofllcerB. without orders, decided to move forward and reconnoitre. When wo got where wo could see what wbb go ing on we found that tho rough riders had marched down a sort of cation between tho mountains. Tho Spaniards had mon posted at tho entrance, ami as soon as the rough riders had gone in had about closed up tho roar and wore , tiring , upon .the rough riders from both tho front nnd tho rear, Immediately tlio Bpnnlards in the rear received n volley from our men of the Tenth Cavnlry without com mand. The Hpmlards were afraid wo woro going .to. flank them, and rushed out of am bush. In front ot the rough ridcre. (hrowlng up their hands and shouting: .. Don't shoot; wcwi re Cubans-." Tho, rough riders thus lot thgm escape, nnd gave thom p. chance to tnko n better position ahead. During all thin tlmo the men wore oil in tall grass and could not see even each other, and I rem the rough riders In tho renr shot many of tholr men In the Tront mistaking them tor Spanish soldlern. By this time the Tenth l'n airy had full taken In the situation, and, adopting tho method employed In lighting In dians, were able to turn tho tide ot lattlo nnd repulse the Hpnnlftrds. . I don't think It nn exaggeration to snythst It lt had not beCnfor tho timely nldof tho Tenth Cavalry the rough riders -would havo been ex terminated. This Is the unanimous opinion, nt least, of the men of tho Tenth Cavalry. 1 was In the tight of July 1, nnd It, was in that fight that 1 leeched my Wound, vin wero under lln In that fight about rort -eight hours, nnd wero without food and with but little water.

Vory soon alter tho firing began our Colonel was. k llud nnd tlio most of.our othor offlcors wero killed or wound ed, so thnt tho greater part ot that desperate battle was fought by sorne of the Ninth nnd Tenth Cavalry without ofllcors; or, at least.
