DISTRICT TROOPS
Four Companies Mustered Into Uncle
Sarn'3 Service.
TO CAMP ON VIRGINIA SOIL
Remaining Companies of Regiment
Still Short of Men.
HUSTLING FOK RECRUITS
Up to 3:20 o'clock this afternoon the fol
lowing companies had been mustered into
the lfrt Regiment, District of Columbia
Volunteers: Company F, Capt. Otto F.
SImondson; Company A (Emmet Guards),
Capt. Harry Walfh; Company B, Capt. W.
T. H. King; Company G (Morton Cadets),
Capt. F. S. Hodgson.
These companies are now in the service
of the United States. They are all quar
tered In the armory of the National Guard,
over the Center Market.
Tomorrow morning at i> o'clock these four
companies, under command of Maj. Urell,
wlii leave the Pennsylvania depot for Falls
Church, where they will go into camp at
the point recently selected for the mobiliza
tion of the volunteer army. Maj. Urell will
be mustered in this afternoon for this pur
pose.
It was the intention of General Harries
to have the tr**>ps go into camp on a gov
ernment reservation within the limits of
the l>istrict, but permission could not be
secured for this purpose. As fast as the
other companies are mustered in, they will
be sent to the camp at Falls Church.
\% ill Keeeive K<|uipmentn.
The companies will be properly equipped
for field service tonight and early tomor
row morning. Those m?n that are not
equipped will be filled out in camp. Com
pany F is already equipped for the field.
When this company was mustered In it
was in heavy marohir.g order and ready to
move at a moment*s notice.
Tht other companies are made up largely
of recruits, and they are not even fully
provided with uniforms, to say nothing of
puns and :he other necessary parapher
nalia. knapsacks, haversacks and canteens.
Biankets have not as yet been furnished
to the men.
Humify Recroi (int;.
In the meantime recruiting in those com
panies thai are short the necessary number
of men is going on. The armory has been
the same scene of busy activity that has
boeii the case every day this week. Offi
cers and men have i>een rushing back and
forth ali day trying to get recruits. Since
eariy morning the examining surgeons have
been kept busy inspecting those men desir
ing to enlist.
More than fifty per c??nt of the men ex
amined have failed to pass.
It is said at the armory today that the
examination has been e>*-n more rigid than
heretofore. Out of batches of ten and
twenty men only two and three were able
to pass the* ordeal successfully.
The Morton Cadets have been waiting
for muster since 10 o'clock this morning.
When the members of the company left the
armory last night there were eighty-five
men who promised to appear for muster
this morning. Thi3 morning, however, sev
eral of the men failed to show up and the
company was five shy. All day the officers
hac been hustling for recruits, but it was
not until 3 o'clock that the last man was
secured.
The Mortons were then mustered int j
the 1st Regiment of Volunteers, being the
fourth company to be sworn in.
(.oiupan) About Ready.
It is more than probable that Company
L? Cafct. George W. England, will be mut
tereo in late this afternoon or tonight.
Ihis company at U-?*0 o'clock, only needed
five men to have the necessary number,
&nd the officers and members of the com
pany are working hard to get this number.
The balance of the companies which will
go to make up the regiment need from
fifteen to twenty men each in order to
complete their ranks.
It is estimated this afternoon that one
hundred men will have to be secured to
make up the regiment. Some of the com
panies have established recruiting stations
in Georgetown, Anacostia and Bladens
burg. one company will open up a re
cruiiing station In Alexandria tomorrow,
where it is expected some nun will be
Eecured.
The physical examinations, as stated,
have been very rigid today. It was a no
ticeable fact that a number of the members
of th? guard who have been rated as ath
letes, who have been prominent members
of the foot nail, baao ball and basket ball
teams, who have ? scored successes
as boxers and wr^stlsrs have bsen un
able to pass examination by the surgeons,
while others who looked as if a strong gust
of winu would blow them away have gone
through with flying colors.
Hivalry Hftwen ?'<*iii|?uiitea.
There has been great rivalry between the
various officers and men that will compose
the regiment in the matter of securing re
cruits.
Ouisuit* of each company quarters is a
large sign stating that recruits are wanted,
v>hile the br?dge is lined with those on the
lookout for any poor civilian who turns up
and looks even the slightest bit anxious to
go to he front. He is grabbed and hustled
about, first one side and then the other,
until he Anally succeeds in impressing upon
his captors that he is only looking for a
trand. He is quickly released with dia
fiubt.

C\I,IFOR\IA WHEAT CHOP SHORT.
Yield Will >ot De More Than One
Tenth Average.
SAN* FRANCISCO, Cal., May 12.?Re
ports from Associated Press correspond
ents in the Sacramento and San Joaquin
valleys, the great wheat-growing sections
of the state, say that the wheat crop
will be almost a total failure this
year. In Sacramento and adjoining coun
ties the outlook is decidedly gloomy. Wheat
has not yet headed and most of it will be
cut for hay.
There is a general belief that there will
not be enough wheat this year for seed.
Enorrrtous quantities of corn are being
brought from Kansas and Nebraska to
feed stock. Advices from Stockton state
that not more than 10,000 tons of wheat will
be harvested this year. The normal yield
is from 100.000 to 125,(100. In Fresno and
acijoining counties the wneat crop is re
garded as a total loss.
WORLDLY AMI SEJIEXTS TABOOED.
Resolution lntrodnced by Yirjgiiiijl
Dclrituteii to llaltimore Conference.
Special 1'lspatch to The Evening Star.
BALTIMORE, May 12.?Worldly amuse
ments are to be tabooed by members of the
church if a resolution passes the general
corfeience of the Methodist Episcopal
Church South which was introduced by
delegates from the Virgir.ia conference. The
memorial makes provision for the addition
of a chapter to the discipline forbidding
the members of the church from indulging
in worldly amusements?such as dancing,
card playing, horse racing, attending thea
ters. circuses or horse races or Joining
clubs which furnish intoxicating liquors
to members.
The memorial states that for the first
offense there shall be a private reproof by
the pastor, afterward exhortation by breth
ren and lastly expulsion, according to the
manner adopted by the church in cases of
immorality.
When it was found that the report of the
commission to examine the articles of re
ligion had not changed the articles of faith,
but had only made them conform to the
original draft, the conference adopted the
report without a dissenting vote.
Conference decided to combine the offices
of editor and secretary of the Epworth
Era. the league organ, and providing for
paying the expenses frcm the book fund.
During the discussion it was developed
that the league has a membership of
120,000.
TORPEDO BOATS OFF VWTICKET.
They Were \?t American* and Minht
Have lleen English.
NEW YORK. May 12.?The Brtish steam
er Menantic, which arrived today, reports
that two torpedo boats were passed near
Nantucket Shoals yesterday. Captain
Mann said: "At about 1 o'clock In the
morning of May 11, in latitude 4O.50, longi
tude 68, a long. low-lying craft was seen
approaching under the shadow of the Me
rantic's smoke. It came along rapidly and
was seen to be a torpedo boat. She flashed
a light on us and crossed under our stern,
going to the E. N. E., and fired a rocket,
which was answered to the southward by
dot and dash flashes.
"The night was too dark to distinguish
anything or determine the nationality of
the stranger. At daylight, about twenty
miles east of Nantucket Souta Shoal light
ship, another torpedo boat was seen in the
line of the sun, which dazzled the water
too much to make out her color. She w is
one of the destroyer class of torpedo catch
ers and a very large boat with one funnel.
Guns were mounted on the bow. She ap
peared to be one of the recent English typo
of torpedo destroyers, and I am sure there
is no vessel of her class in the American
navy."
The Menantic ran close to the lightship
on Nantucket and reported the presence of
the torpedo boats.

the gunboat Macliias died there shortly
afterward.
At O-i'5 p.Tn. yesterday the Hudson, with
the dead bodies and some of the wounded,
started for Key West, arriving here at 8
o'clock this morning.
Lieut. Bernadou, commanding the Wins
low, was wounded in the left leg. but not
seriously. Lying in the cabin of the Hud
son this morning, he received a reporter
of the Associated Press and told the lat
ter the story of the fight. He said:
Lieut. Bernndon'n Story.
"We went into the harbor under orders.
The torpedo boat Winslow was the worst
Injured. She had five of her men killed,
and I don't know how many Injured.
"The Winslow was ordered by the com
mander of the Wilmington to go into the
I harbor of Cardenas and attack the Spanish
gunboats there. We steamed in under a
full head and were fired upon as soon as
we were in range. The Spanish boats were
i tied up at the docks and had a fair range
on us. The batteries on shore also opened
on us, and I think we received most of the
fire. I don't khow whether any one was
hurt on the Wilmington or on the Hudson,
but I think not.
I "I have no fault to find with the Wins
low's crew. They acted nobly all the way
through. The men who were killed all
fell at the same time. We were standing
in a group, and the aim of the Spanish was
perfect. The shell burst in our very faces."
nrail at Key Went.
The dead and wounded brought here by
the Hudson were taken in small boats to
the government dock. This was the first
news of the engagement to reach Key
Wrest.
No time was lost in attending to the
wounded. A quick call was sent to the
Marine Hospital and an ambulance came
clattering down to the dock. The dead
were taken to an undertaking shop and the
wounded were conveyed to a hospital.
In the meantime, the news had spread
and crowds gathered about the dock, but
there was no sort of a demonstration. The
si-ccess of the American ships In every ac
tion thus far has been so overwhelming
that it is hard to realize that death lias at
last come to soma of our men.
Ensign Bagley was about twenty-six
years old. and while the fleet was station
ed here h? was one of the most popuiai men
in the service. The news of his death came
a^ a terrible shock to all who knew him.
IWpedo t'rewd Flrnt to Fall.
It has always been a foregone conclusion
that the torpedo boat men would be among
the first to fall, as their work is most dan
gerous, but in spite of this, when the fleet
was stationed here and changes in assign
ments were frequently made, all the young
men of the service were eager for torpedo
boat duty.
The Hudson shows the effect of the fight.
Her smokestack is punctured with bullet
holes and her cabin and decks are smash
ed and splintered.

men who ever came out of the Naval Acad

FiKST \ H TIMS OF THE WAIL
Mr. Pepper's Story of the Fight at
CarileiiaH Yesterday.
Special From a Staff Correspondent.
KEif WEST, l-'la., Ma) 12.?The auxiliary
tug Hudson this morning brought in the
fit st American victims of the war. They
lay on her deck covered by the American
flag. Their lives were sacrificed off Carde
nas yesterday afternoon in an engagement
in which the torpedo boat Winslow, the
gunboat Wilmington and the auxiliary tug
Hudson took part.
There are three Spanish gunboats in
Cardenas harbor. One of them ran out and
the Winslow followed her well in shore
and flred after her. Then the masked bat
teries on shore fired. The Winslow replied,
and the Wilmington also opened up on the
shore batteries.
The firing v as general for several min
utes, the shore batteries having good aim.
Finally a shell struck the Winslow in her
boilers. The explosion was terrific, and the
vessel was disabled. Ensign Worth Bagley
was killed with two members of the crew
and several were wounded, resulting In
the subsequent death of two more. Lieut.
Bernadou, who was in command, was
wounded, receiving a splinter. The Wil
mington and the Hudson both perceived
the disaster, but it was impossible for the
Wilmington to run in shore so far. The
Hudson made a plucky run, under the fire
of the batteries, which had not been si
lenced, and towed the Winslow out of
danger, while the Wilmington kept up Its
shelling of the shore batteries. Ultimately
these were silenced. The engagement be
gan at 1 o'clock Wednesday afternoon and
lasted thirty-five minutes. Eight-Inch
shells were used by the Spaniards, and
they employed smokeless powder.
Several houses were set on flre by shells
from the Wilmington, and when the Hud
son came away, bringing the dead and
wounded, half of the town seemed to be In
flames.
The Hudson was scraped by two or three
shells, but was not damaged. PEPPER.
Tlie Prmlilrnt'a Sorrow.
President McKlnley expressed the deep
est sorrow at the loss of life on the Wins
low. The news afTected him greatly. The
first news reached him through the press
dispatches. He eagerly read every line of
these. Some time later Secretary Long
went to the White House with the official
news of the fight and the killing of the
Americans.
The general belief Is that the bombard
ment of Cardenas was by orders from the
Navy Department, and that the object was
to clear the vicinity of opposition to the
larding of United States troops.
No Sewn of uu Engagement,
Soverul telegrams were reoelved at the
Navy Department over night, supposedly
from the West Indies. None of these was
made public by Secretary Long, but it was
stated that they contained no Information
of an engagement between Admiral Samp
son's squadron and the Spanish forces,
either jjet or forts. It Is believed that
they w^i slirply reports from the com
manders of some of the soouts.
WAR REVENUE BILL
Important Changes Made by the
Senate Finance Committee.
LITTLE OF OIGINAL ME1SDRE LEFT
Bonds, Time Certificates and For
eign Tonnage Tax Eliminated.
GREENBACKS AND SILVER
The Senate committee on finance today
at 12 o'clock began what it was hoped
would be its last meeting on the war
revenue bill, the measure having been prac
tically completed at yesterday's meeting.
The bill as presented to the committee to
day shows almost iMK> amendments and
fully half of it Is original matter.
The most striking features are the omis
sion of the provisions for bonds and time
certificates and for a tonnage tax on for
eign shipping which the bill carried when
it passed the House. These are all stricken
out, not a trace of any of them being left.
Next in order of importance are the pro
visions for the issuance of greenbacks, the
coinage of the seigniorage and the 1*1
lion of corporations, inserted at the in
stance of the democrats with the assist
ance of Senator Jones of Nevada, and for
an inheritance tax placed in the bill by the
joint effort of the democratic senators and
Senators Jones of Nevada anil W oleott of
Colorado.
Sliver SeljtnlorHRe Colnaare.
The seigniorage provision authorizes the
Secretary of the Treasury to coin not to
exceed $42,000,000 of silver Immediately
and to issue certificates based upon it. |
The greenback section is an authorization
to the Secretary of the Treasury to Issue
during the next fiscal year to defray the
expenses of the war with Spain not to
exceed 1150,000,000 in United States legal
tender notes. They are to l>e redeemable
the same as the greenbacks now in circu
lation.
Tnxutlun on All Corporation*.
The provision for the taxation of corpora
tions enumerates railroads, street rail
roads, sleeping cars, canal boats, steam
boats, express, telegraph, telephone and
insurance companies of all kinds, including
iife, fire and accident; gas. electric light,
elcctric power and steam heat companies,
and also sugar and petroleum refineries.
To these specifications is added a general
provision for taxing "all corporations.
The rate on all is made one-quarter of 1
per cent of the gross receipts. A penalty,
fine or imprisonment, is imposed for evad
ing the tax It is made the duty of the
managers of* such institutions to make re
turns of their receipts monthly.
Lt-KitricN of Over S5.000 Tnxeil.
The tax on legacies is made on a double
sliding scale, til* rite increasing with the
amount of the bgqufgt, and also being gov
erned by consanguinity. No legacies be
low $5,000 are t^jted. Those between $5,000
and $250,000 are taxpd at the rate of 75
cents for every . Slop in cases where the
beneficiary is a lineal descendant or an
cestor or brothet* or sister of the testator.
The rate is augmented as the beneficiary is
removed in relationship until It reaches
on the $100, wh&re he Is a stranger. The
tax is increased on lUrger legacies. Those
made to husband or wife are exempted
from the operations of the act.
llanktfK and llroker?. <
The tax on banker* Is leveled at the rattS
of $100 a year on all banking institutions
which have a capital' stock of $50,000, and
$2 is added for each additional thousand
dollars of stock.
Brokers are assessed at the uniform rate
'of $50. There is also a tax on pawn brok
ers, insurance agents and on the properties
of theaters, circuses, bowling alleys, etc.
The tax on board of trade and exchange
operations is made at the rate of one cetit
for each $100 to be represented by memo
randa, and brokers evading the giving of
these are liable to be made the subject of
ctiminal proceedings.

ASOTHER RIMOR GXPLODtD.
>? E?ropp?n Protest Aicnlnst War In
the Philippine*.
It was stated authoritatively today at
the State Department that there is * no
truth whatever In the L*md?n newspaper
Hlleffafion that thre?^ of the Kuropean am
bassadors had made friendly representa
tions to the United Stales against an ex
tension of the war to the Philippines. No
representations whatever In that line have
been made to the State Departme'nt.
ARMV HKAI>?tt 4HTKRS.
Arrnnct-mrnlii for Their Kanixriiirat
Durlnic (in. Miles' Absence.
During General Miles* absence from
Washington army headquarters here will
remain for a few days in charge of Captain
Davis, 3d Artillery, at present a member
of General Miles' staff. Captain Davit will,
however, only retain charge of headquar
ters for a few days, when he will be suc
ceeded In that duty by J. D. Morton, now
chief clerk at army headquarters.
Upon being relieved Captain Davis will
Join General Miles at Tampa, again at
taching himself to his staff. Of the em
ployes at army headquarters here General
Miles takes with him three clerks?John
Wahling. N. E. Dawson and A. C. Foote?
with three messengers?Thomas Morris, I.
W. Scott and J. H. Williams. That will
leave live clerks and three messengers for
headquarters here.
Chief Clerk Morten Is to be made a cap
tain in the regular army and an assistant
adjutant general. He is of large military
experience, having entered the service ^s
a private in l>>7o, enlisting in the _'d Cav
alry. He served in Montana in most cf
the Indian campaigns from 1S70 to 1875.
He was then attached to the 2d Artillery.
Gen. Sheridan detailed htm as an orderly
to at'end him at Chicago, and when the
army headquarters was removed to Wash
ington Mr. Morton came here with Gen.
Sheridan, ami in ISM was appointed chief
clerk at headquarters, which place he now
holds.
THE HAWAIIAN HESOI.l TIO.V.
Ineerlnln Situation in the Senate lu
ItcKard to It.
It Is regarded as certain that the House
will pass the Hawaiian annexation resolu
tion next week, after considerable opposi
tion.
The situation in the Senate is very uncer
tain. It is apparent that a strong majority
of thi Senate is in favor of annexation,
and that the resolutions are stronger in
that body now than heretofore. A number
?of senators who were opposed to the an
nexation treaty have been convinced by the
recent developments on the Pacific that it is
of the utmost importance that we should
have a mid-Pacific station.
The practical certainty that we will hold
the Philippit.e Islands renders It necessarv
that we should have the Hawaiian Inlands".
A few men in the S. nate, however, who
have been the leaders in opposition to the
annexation of Hawaii, arc still very deter
mined, and it is possible that they may
take advantage of tne exigencies of the
situation with respect to revenue and other
measjres necessary to war conditions to
coerce the Senate In this matter.
Notwithstanding this character of opposi
tion. and the fight that has been renewed
by thi sugar trust, it is believed that the
resolutions can be got through Congress
before adjournment.
POSTPONED AXOTHER DAY.
The Eclilneton and guilders' Home
Hallway Hill in the Senate.
The consideration of private pension bills
consumed nearly the entire morning hour
in the Senate today and prevented the
further consideration of District of Colum
bia street railway bills. When 2 o'clock
arrived Mr. Kyle asked that the labor aroi
tration bill be taken up. and Mr. McMillan,
chairman of the committee on the District
of Columbia, said he would not object to
that being done provided the railroad bills
could be taken up and, disposed of immedi
ately after the routine business is tran
sacted tomorrow morning.
There were quite a number of people lt<
the Senate galleries, interested in the Eok
ington and Soldiers' Home railroad and
ether bills, and general disappointment
was expressed that such legislation had to
be postponed another day.
A Noteworthy Point.
From the New York Tribune.
It is interesting to observe that whlie an
ti-annexationisls are agreed that the ac
quisition of Hawaii would fatally weaken
this country from a military and naval
point of view, the men who have led
armies and commanded fleets declare, with
impressive unanimity, that the possession
of the islands would greatly strengthen us,
and is, ind^d, essential to our safety.
S|>uln's Tardiness.
From the New York Commercial Advertiser.
Stories that Spain is willing to surrender
Cuba remind that Spain's concessions al
ways come too late. She must surrender
more than Cuba. Probably events have
gone too far in the Philippines for their res
U ration to Spain. Pirhaps next week it
will be too late for her to keep Porto Rico.
Sometimes it is not enough to yield; one
n.ust know l?ow to yield at the psycholog
ical moment.
Education and Patriotism.
From the Hartford O urant.
Therj is something radically wrong in
the education tnat educates the patriotism
out of an American. Whatever it may do
for his scholarship, or his taste, or his
style, it has -obbed him of his birthright.
It has robbed the couutry too. The coun
try is entitled to the .oyai'.y and loving
service of all her children.
Too Costly.
From the -Savannah News.
Each shot of the long-range guns on the
big Spanish warships c< sts in the neigh
borhood of $800. Spain is not in a linan
cial condition to waste $800 shots In bom
barding $200 towns, hence a number of the
nervous little places along the coast may
rest easy.

GENERAL MARKET REPORT?
Special Dinpatrfa to The Evening *ir.
NEW YORK. May 12.?^Conflicting newt
as to the movement of the Atlantic fleet and
lower prices in London encouraged ?omc
profit-taking in th? local market this morn
ing. Opening prices reflected fractional de
clines in most every IntUnce, and subse
quent trading carried prices down from 1
to 1H per cent from the Initial sale.
The market relapsed into dullm ss at tho
decline. ai:d commission houses bought
cautiously at er< ry opportunity.
In the granger shares profit taking was
especially pronounced, T?ndon selling St.
Paul and local houses realising on Burllng
ton and Rock Island. Some selling in the
latttr stock was credited to inside Interests,
but the rallies from the low prices w? re
easily actomplish?d by very moderate pur
chases for accounts known to favor liiglvr
price.
The effort to put the stork to par hav'^ff
}>een discovered, thtre is considerable st U
for sale a fraction und'*r that figure. Sev
eral times during the da> the price lacked
but a small fraction of fulfilling th:? pre
diction. but the selling dutlng the entirs
n croing proved superior to the buying
The earnings of the company are a guaran
tee of higher pries. and there is little I: e
11 hood of the su> k being more than tem
porarily cheeked by speculative condition*.
Burlington maintained its new level ever,
in the face of considerable profit-taking.
and these shares at their par value are des
tined to lose their novelty the first tiir?*
the general market will admit of a fur
ther advance.
The Industrial shares were strong and
weak by turns, and seemed to lack a defi
nite course of procedure. Sugar and to
bacco were particlsrly erratic, and the
manipulation Was employed in sustaining
rather than In advancing prices.
Confidence in ultimate higher price* ex
ists on all Mdes. but there is an increasing
spirit of ooMnrfAtbm umi eMEnhsl ?n
houses. This attitude of caution is inspir d
entirely by the fact tha: prices have had p.
big rise since the naval triumph in th *
Philippines. A reaction of 1 or 2 per cent
would be logical, and considerable idle
money is known to i>e awaiting only su< a
an opportunity for investment.
The abundant cash holdings of the rat
ional b^nks. as disclosed by the recent re
ports to the controller, clearly indicate . ?
?n? rmous. althojk'h temporarily inactive,
motive power upon which the market mav
depend for future needs. The public de
mand for stocks is steady, if not liberal,
and sooner or later will become gener :*
and dominate all other speculative for?'cs.
The action on the revenue bill is to
considered as a factor, as its provision?
cover a multitude of features of vital sig
nificance to corporations.
The tax on corporate in teres s as well
as uprn the commodities manufactured bv
corporations, will i e a considerable item
to at least a few of the better known in
stitutions whose shares are listed.
Peace arguments are ^till in forc^, b*it
their feignlflcur ce is restricted somewhat
by the fact that those who indorse th?m
were tut a short time ago confident that
v. ar was in.probable.
