TRIP TO SANTIAGO
A Famous War Correspondent's Ac

FOLLOWED THE TRANSPORT FLEET

of Sea and Land.

IN GUANTANAMO HARBOR. Cuba.
Juno 21.?A boisterous night with i nastv
beam wind and a punishing sea, and the
Af-sociated Press dispatch boat Wanda
from Kingston came rollicking, like a
petrel, round Point Morant, and bending
:ilm"St due north, was making for Santi
ago de Cuba.
All of a sudden, up from the deep blue
billows of the midnight sea there glistened
along the horizon a coronet of noble jewels,
necklaces fit for the throat of a queen
diamond, emerald and ruby?the signal
lights of a great squadron of some forty
vessels, rocking under easy steam in the
ck?p. As they rolled through the waves
the stars seemed to come down to meet th<;
Great Bear, his lowest stars swinging Just
behind the lamps of the Indiana, the South
ern Cress mingling Its bright lights with
the gems that made so beautiful a night.
We had chanced, by good fortune, upon
the long-expected transport fleet, taking
some 20.000 men to the attack of the south
ern coast of Cuba, escorted by a powerful
convoy of men-of-war. Perhaps it is that
the outward and visible signs of war thrill
me more than they do most civilians, per
haps it is that blood is "really thicker than
water" and that looking out upon the noble
constellation of flashing ships I feel myself
half an American; anyhow, the fact re
mains that I feel proud of our common
Anglo-Saxon kinship, and sympathetic as I
must be with the ruin, the derotta of a na
tion of most ancient fame, 1 gazed upon
the scene with a something warmer, more
enthusiastic, than mere English feelings.
In Soiling; Line.
A scouting gunboat, ablaze with color,
at once dircovercd us, made friendly prize
of us. questioned us and let us go. and till
dawn we lay there in a little yacht, rock
ing on the swell among the great company
of leviathans. At daybreak we watched
them bulklly awaking to life, taking their
I-laces, with a monstrous leisureliness, in
the sailing line, and with the flagship
ahead, and warships thrown well out on
either flank, steaming away along the
coast to the eastward toward Guantanamo.
How empty the sea seemed without these
behemoths, black and gray! How terri
bly significant of speed and power those
wisps of ugly smoke below the horizon!
And meanwhile we were steering to the
westward, and with the stately line of .the
squadron always on our right, far away,
approached '"St. Jago de Cuba."
A sharp tropical squall caught us as we
went, pelting us with rain drops as keen
and sharp as hall stones and ermining all
the black sea with points of silver. But
we ran through it very soon, and as the
rising sun caught the rain-laden air I saw
for the first time the beautiful phenome
non of a double rainbow. One arch started,
so it seemed, from our very keel and span
ned only the few miles of sea between us
and the flanking squadron. For the other
Iris flung out her longest, brightest, broad
est riband, the one end dipped in the sea
somewhere on the farther side of the scene
and the other was lost beyond tlw blue
haze of the Cuban hills. And thus it was
that I first saw the Morro of St. Jago un
der the arches of the rainbows.
Morro Cawtle.
There are those who have written of this
fine old Rhine castle in the Caribbean sea
in contemptuous scorn, not merely as e
fortress, unsuited, by the misfortune of its
antiquity, to oppose the scientilic terrors
of modern ofTense, but as a building no
longer "of any use to anybody." I cannot
understand the tone of mind that, even
under the distorting stress of war, can
write like this in the public press of so
picturesque and, to America, so precious a
building. Granted it is no fort, it is a thing
of beauty, graced with a reverend antiq
uity. The squadron should spare it if they
can. There is nothing to be ashamed of
in respect for an old past, nor in the sen
timent of reverence. Compare it with the
brutal objects, aboml nations of machinery
and steel, ungainly in the very fullness of
their power, the ugly battle ships and ug
lier monitors, unlovely scows, dynamite
craft, torpedo boats and "converted col
liers"?a wicked-looking congregation of
life-takers?compare these with the gentle
contours of the old Morro, so pathetic in
the rays of the setting sun. It Is like com
paring the beautiful rounded wreaths of
steam that curl and float away behind a
railway train with the odious angularity
of the cars and engines that go racing for
ward.
The coast line round St. Jago is re
splendent, the roeky hills have a rough
fleece of sciub which is patched as if with
mange, showing bare leprous spots of rud
dy under-earth. Wo pass the noblo-look
ing old fort, perched like the eyrie of some
madiaeval robber baron upon the crest and
brow of the crags and trailing its lower
levels of donjon-keep in the waters of the
bay, to Juragua. where iron mines were
worked "before the war."
The VulnvlUnfc Shore,
The white cottages of the miners still
stand dotted about among the uninviting
bills or scattered ulong the beach, n shore
most uninviting to eyes accustomed to the
more comfortable outlines of Europe and
lamentable by contrast with the wealth of
beauty, the superb contours of Jamaica.
But soon the coast alters. The mountains,
lying back from the sea, send down about
their feet softly undulating lines of hills,
gentle heralds, as it were, of the sterner
upper heights, and the foreshore is broken
into outlining ramparts, the "first lino of
defense" of the imperial hills behind,
rounded knolls, great cushions of green
upon coral stands. Half Islands they seem

and little harbors and hays break away be
tween them from the sea, each margined
with narrow strips of sand?.vhat shells
must be strewn upon those little Inlets!?
bush. dense and deep, creeps with jealous
accuracy of outline.
When the setting sun caught the coasts
the rugged hills looked like crumpled vel
vet, the bush a close-piled plush. Oroup3
of white houses straggled down through
the green foliage to the water's edge, very
sad in their forlornness, roofless, some of
them, desolate all. Here is a great Iron
pier, ten trucks in a row, all standing on
it, rusty and red, waiting for the creak of
the crank, the push of the strong arm, to
etart them Into life again.
Uulqulrl Harbor.
And the day is not far distant, for this
is Balquiri?this queer little harbor, with
Its' sad hamlet, its idle Iron pier, upon
which tomorrow the eit ^trlfying hand of
war will be laid?tomo'row-and Kalqulrt
knows nothing of the awful change that is
coming; the old hills know nothing, and
the unruffled harbor knows nothing, and
all are dreaming together as if the past was
to be the future. And yet I know that to
morrow before the sun sets the leviathans
that 1 saw lying spangled with signal lights
upon the sea last night will be clustered
lound this little port; that the rattle of
small arms will shake all the folk in fuss
and feathers that live In that slumbering
bush; that the walls of the machine gun
will send the terns that now float asleep
upon the tranquil waters of the bay out
screaming In klarm to the sea, and the
angry voices of the field guns awaken the
long-distant echoes of the majestic lakes.
What a dawn is that of tomorrow. What
a day it Is that is about to break. The life
story of a people begins anew. Tomorrow
the Anglo-Saxon lays upon the island the
hand under the touch of. which every coun
try leaps with fresh existence and renewed
youth, drinking the new air of freedom and
starting regirded about the loins for a new
race to run, the goal of which is peace,
honor and tranquillity under law.

DELAY HARD TO BEAR
District Soldiers Eager to Reach the
Field of Battle.
GIVEN SIXTY DAYS' RATIONS
Still the Order to March Has Not
Been Made.
GOOD INSPECTION
Sjxclul Dispatch to The Evtninjt Star.
TAMPA, Fla., June 30.?'The regular
monthly muster and inspection of the
reglmmt was held this morning. Promptly
at 7 o'clock, when the assembly sounded,
the men fell into their regular pkices and
prepared for a thorough inspection by Col.
Harries.
He commenced at the head of the 1st
Battalion and inspected every rifle, all the
accoutrements and uniforms, then tents,
company streets and company Kitchens.
He expressed himself afterward as being
very much pleased with the result. He
was accompanied in his inspection by Ad
jutant Meher and Quartermaster Field.
The muster roll was called and every
man had to account for the property that
had been issued to him. One private has
had his equipment stolen, and Captain T.
W. H. King of Company B, and Lieut.
Walker and Lieut. Meekins have been ap
pointed a board of survey, to investigate
the matter. They will hold a meeting for
that purpose today.
Jiu Sick Men.
After the companies had been inspected a
visit was made to the hospital, where Sur
geons Pyles, Cox and Weaver had every
thing in excellent shape. There were no
patients in the hospital, and but few men
answered sick call this morning.
It is expected that the number will be
larger tomorrow, as about a dozen boxes of
edibles came from Washington for the boys
this morning. Such boxes have caused
most of the sickness found in the regi
ment. Colonel Harries hopes very much
that no more boxes will be sent.
The boys are chafing very much over not
being ordered to the front. All sorts of
rumors and some orders have been afloat,
hut they have not materialized. Sixty
da^' rations have been issued to the men
and five hundred rounds of ball cartridges
provided for each man. The men will not
be allowed to have these cartridges until
they are ordered away from Tampa.
The general court-martial to try Private
Marshall of the 5th Maryland regiment
some weeks ago will convene tomorrow
morning. Private Findley of Company B
of the District Regiment will probably
come up before the court in the ntar fu
ture.
Sor.ic Clinngea.
Private Kenneth O'Conner of Company C
has been appointed a musician in the same
company, and Private Jones has been ap
pointed artificer. Quartermaster Sergeant
J. M. Walsh of Company A has been made
a duty sergeant at his own request, and
Sergeant Thomas F. Macauley has been
made quartermaster sergeant.
Ford Thompson, jr., of Washington ar
rived at Tampa yesterday and enlisted in
Tropp A of Roosevelt's rough riders. The
boys of the 5th Maryland Regiment are re
joicing in the arrival of three hundred and
twenty recruits. They came last night.
They will not probably go to the front
with the regiment, but will remain in Tam
pa to b<i drilled and seasoned.
The pay rolls are being made out today,
and both officers and men hope very much
that the paymaster will show up before the
end of the week. Most of the officers and
all of the men are busted. The censor ab
solutely refuses to allow anything of real
interest to go oat from Tampa. - B.
TODAY'S SACK AT SARATOGA.
Talk of llie Morning Slljjlitly Favored
Columbia.
SARATOGA, N. Y., June 30.?The day
for the freshman boat race opened bright
and clear, with a light, cooling breeze stir
ring. The talk during the morning con
tinued slightly in favor of Columbia. The
fast time that Ward swears that both his
crews have made causes a number to take
stock in the Quakers for today's struggle.
The facilities for witnessing the race could
not be better. Grand stands have been
erected opposite the finish, and the high
acclivity, which crowns tiie neck of the
lake where the finish line is located, forms
an Ideal place for spectators, and com
mands a view of nearly the entire course.
The following are the crew statistics for
the race today:

SALISBURY FOR PEACE.
England's Premier Speaks of Amer
ica's War l?ith Spain.
Lord Salisbury, the prtmler, addressing
the United Club, In London last evening,
said:
"There is a black cloud on the horizon,
one that does not affect us personally,
but which evokes the deepest sorrow and
our largest desire for Its removal. It is
the war of two great states, between whom
wo are neutral?one bound to us by every
tie of kindred and similarity of institutions
ana religion; the other the state that
fought on our side when we struggled with
the threatening tytanny of the first Na
poleon.
"Watching this terrible war, we are
bound to abstain from expressing any
preference or any judgment on either side.
We know that in both cases the motives
were of the highest character. We know
that the United States are animated by
elevated philanthropy, and that Spain
Is inspired by that love of independence
which was the greatest pride of all an
cient nations.
"I can only say I earnestly wish the day
may speedily arrive when this terrible
slaughter between two nations will cease,
and the world be restored to peace.
"With this exception, the world looks
smiling enough to us politically. Tt\e con
vention with France has removed the sub
ject of conflict between us and our great'
est and most cultivated neighbor. The
Soudan expedition, If successfully accom
plished, will be the greatest work for
civilization that England has performed
for twe or three generations.
"The government's Chinese policy Is to
prevent the Chinese empire from falling
Into ruins, to invite into paths of reform,
to give it every arsis te nee in our power,
to perfect its defenses, and to increase its
commercial prosperity.
"Thus, we Bhould aid China and our
selves. It is impossible that we should
have the same influence over China ~s
over India and Egypt, but I believe that
so far aa railways are concerned our ad
vantages will be fully equal to those of
other nations."
FINANCIAL.
"What will be the expense of re
moving my establishment to New
York?Chicago?Paris?"
"So many dollars, sir, and we will
attend to all details until you are set
tled in the new residence."
