Mr. Downs was struck by the wagon tongue and quits badly injured. SOLDIERS FOUGHT FIRES Flames Dangerously Hear Tents and Maga? sine of Fort Baker. Ho Serious Danmge Wu Done ?Hard Work to Get Transports for Manila Eipedltloi. 6AN FRANCISCO, July 2.?The troops lit Ihe Presidio and LJme Point were called ?ut last evening- to light grass fires. The flames at Lime Point approached danger ously near the tents and magazine of Port Baker. About 800 acres were burned over, but no serious damage was done. Major General Otis has not yet desig nated the troops to go on the next expedi tion to Manila. It is known, however, that Major General Merrltt is especially anx ious that the 1st New York Volunteers should be dispatched speedily, and they will probably have a place In the next fleet. The difficulty experienced in obtaining steamers for transport service has caused the government to seek for sailing vessels which may be available. Several have been examined, and It Is tyiderstood that the ship Tacoma will be chartered to carry stores and military supplies to Manila. Colonel Smith of the 1st Tennessee Vol unteers asked Major General Otis for a board of supervisors to pass on the uni forms Issued to his regiment. The colonel asserts the garments were made in China town and are worthless. After ten days' wear they are In worse condition than the old uniforms worn by the troops on their arrival here. General Merriam has ordered Major Gen eral Frank W. Hess of the 3d United States Artillery to proceed to Fort Canby, Wash., where he will be permanently stationed. The steamship Acapulco, from Panama and way ports, has arrived here. The Umatilla, from Puget sound and British Columbia, also reached auaranttne, and the City of Panama is expected from Central America wl'hin a few hours. It Is understood that these three vessels will be takea by the government for trans port purposes. The City of Puebla and the Peru are rapidly belr.g fitted up, and the departure of the fourth fleet to Manila is expected to be set for July 10. The Idea of sending each ship off as it is ready, without waiting for a fleet, has not been favorably considered, and the next ex pedition will be plmllt.r to those that have preceded it, although the term "fleet" is variable, and may ii.clude anything from three to fifteen vessels. Maj. Gen. Otis has announced no definite plans In regird to his own departure. Ac cording to present Indications, he will not go until the final fleet sails through the Golden Gate. One hundred ar.d four recruits for Bat teries A and D of the Utah Artillery have arrived at Camp Merrltt. They are in charge of Lieut. Wedgwood and are not equipped. The rr.en were received at the ferry by the ladles <jt the Red Cross So ciety and given breakfast. They then marched to camp and waited in the hot sun for soma one to furnish them tents. The Alger Light Artillery Battery will probably move over to the Presidio today to join the forces at Camp Miller. LINE OF SPANISH RETREAT. In forum t ion nt the Disposal of the War Department. The military authorities here are fully considering the chances of a retreat of the Spanish army from Santiago and are en deavoring so to shape events that General Shafter's force will not only take Santiago, but will capture tbo 12,000 Spaniards before they get away northward to effect a junc ture with General Pando. Full information as to the possible lines of retreat has been placed at the disposal of the War Depart ment. One of the most interesting stat& ments is that of General Manager Cox of the Spanish-American Mining Company, at Baiquiri, who Is thoroughly acquainted with all the country surrounding Santiago. He shows that the two possible lines of re treat are: First, by the road to El Cobre; or, second, by following the line of the Sa banillo and Marato railroad. The first line will be easy for about the first ten miles, or as far as El Cobre, but after that the coun try Is mountainous and barren, and would not aCTord subsistence, and the pass to reach the central plateau of the Island would be difficult. The more likely line of retreat will be along the line of the above mentioned rail road, crossing the Sierra Maestra at El Cristo, a pass 000 feet above the sea, ten miles north of Santiago, which is the low est pass through the Sierra Maestra for many miles. The country back of this is a rolling plateau of rich agricultural land. At Manacas, on the railroad, two miles north of the pass, is an Iron bridge, con sisting c a series of thiry-foot spans on Iron trestle bents. This point Is about two miles beyond the Cristo summit, and Just beyond this bridge the railroad divides in to two branches. The destruction of this bridge would be the most feasible method of preventing the approach of General Pan do's Spanish troops to relieve Santiago. It Is probable that if the Spaniards re treat by this road they will make a stand on the plateau at El Cristo and hold the pass of El Cristo. The only other pass through the mountains near this point is at Escandel Summit, about six mlies in a straight line east of El Cristo pass. Es candel Summit Is 1,200 feet above the sea, and Is reached frcm Santiago via Caney. The road from Santiago to Caney Is fairly good, being wide enough for vehicles. Be tween Caney and Escandel the road, which Is no more than a trail, ascends the moun tains and is very winding and broken. Be yond Escandel, across the range, the coun try Is heavily timbered and broken, and the roads are not good. It is an ideal country for ambush. This is probably the only pass through which the Spanish posi tion could be turned should the Spr.nish troops occupy the Cristo plateau and pass. The railroad has been fortified by a line of blockhouses, protecting the bridges, and certain zones of cultivation inclosed be tween these forts have been planted dur ing all the time of the war, and would af ford a supply for the nrmy for a certain time. In the meanwhile sweet potatoes could be planted, walch in three months would ripen. These zones of cultivation exist along the road as far as San Luis, at which point there is considerable of the country in cultivation. On the other branch (the Sabanllla branch) the zones of culti vation extend as far as Songo. Causes a Loss of fSOO. Fir* was discovered this morning about 10 o'clock in the stable of John Van Der lehr. No. ?00 2d street northwest. What caused the fire Is not known. The dam age amounted to about 1600.

PAY DAY AT-CHICKAMAUGA -I Preparations for the Front Hare Hot Been Stopped. ... r Travel Ration. Have Been ftecetred ?Bd M?trlbnted So That Tkcra Shall Bo No Delay. CHICKAMAUGA, CHATTANOOGA NA TIONAL MILITARY PARK, July 2.?To day has been another excessively warm one at Camp Thomas, and the men have again experienced trouble In getting through with their drills. The work of paying the army was the main feature of the day. A number of regiments, whose pay rolls have been checked and approved, were paid before noon. The work Is now systematized, and hereafter at least six regiments a day will be paid. The whole army will be disposed of In a very short time. Although the army now In camp here has received no Immediate orders to move to the front, preparations for such an event are going on. Ever since the arrival of this army, the Southern. Western and Atlantic, Chatta nooga, Rome and Southern and Alabama Great Southern have concentrated a large number of passenger coaches at this point. These cars remained on the sidings In a rather promiscuous order until today, when . ,t"? former roads began the work of straightening out and making these cars up Into trains -of one freight, three bag gage and nine passenger cars. Major Nye. commissary of subsistence of the Chattanooga depot. Is engaged in pre paring for a movement of the army. Dur ing the past several days he has shipped to the park a quantity of "travel rations," canned corned beef, hard tack, canned sai mo2? ,and ?<her prepared and cooked food, sufficient to last the army for ten days. The supplies have been portioned out to the commissariat officers of the park so that when the time comes to leave for the front every soldier can secure his "travel rations."
