' BED WAR RAGES "ROUND THE FORTS Big Guns Get Busy Again Early This Morning. RED LEGS WORKING HARD And Puzzling a Lot Over This "Second Phase" Thing. CAPTURED BY LANDING PARTY Hostilities to Be Resumed This Evening With Grand Climax Friday Night?Field Notes. Special From a Staff rorrespondent. STAR WSPATCH F50AT, OFF FORT ^ ASHIX<?TON, Md.. July 25.?Rod war be giiu in liw ugain Tins morning at a quarter to 9 o'clock at the Potomac forts, although hostilities had ceased against Fort Washington at. only 10 o'clock last, night, j At a quarter to 8 o'clock this morning the call to arms was sounded at each of the v. is, mm in iiss time tnan it takes to tell it the regulars and the District militia wire in position, ready for the armed force reported as coining up the river. At a quarter to 9 o'clock the Oneida, simulating a battleship, with two small boats, representing the gunboats, were picked up by the rangefinders in the Are command stations on both sides of the river. At that time the naval reserve boats were far below Mt. Vernon, but both forts opened lire, huge clouds of white smoke rolling nifcu in nip air as me great guns Mellowed blank charges, which in time of real war would be destructive messengers of steel. District militiamen were at the guns, as well as tlie regulars, and some of the smaller batteries were served entirely by the guardsmen, wiio are becoming artillerymen as readily as if it were bred in the bone. Actual War Conditions. Lieut. Col. Coffin directed the general defense from the Fort Washington side, while militia officers were in fire command stations with the regular officers, who were giving the detailed orders for the defense. Both defending forces at the forts had outposts stationed to protect themselves against attack by land, and the disposition of the troops was exactly what it would have been in case of actual attaok, although the-numbers were far less. Kor less than an hour hostilities raged, and then the Oneida recalled small boats which she hid sent out, presumably with the Intention of making a land attack, and came to anchor abreast of the fish commission. She left eight small boats in I'iscataway creek. Col. Coffin then ordered "smoke rockets" sent tip as signals. These rockets make a heavy, rolling smoke when they burst, and finally a parachute opens and falls slowly. Hostilities are expected to reopen iatfe this afternoon, and again at 1 or 2 o'clock Friday morning, while Friday night will be llie climax of the week's operations. After cessation of tiring this morning Col. Coffin rushed a request over to The livening Star reporter at Fort Hunt to be taken down the river on The Star dispatch boat and put aboard the Oneida. Last Night's Land Attack. Last night the promised land attack on Fort Washington was made by the men under MaJ. Stephan and Capt. Balentlne, assisted by the company of regulars at Fort Hunt. Everybody from that side of the river except the cooks and the men on the sick list was impressed into the service. The strength of the defenses of Fort Washington was demonstrated, for the hAatc rin?r tViA attaclririfr fnrpfu u*crp? detected long before they reached the objective landing places. It is claimed at Fort Hunt that they had the attacking force of the previous night beaten, sln-ce they managed to get the Cushing, bearing their main attack, farther up the river before discovery than the Fort Washington men had done Tuesday night. It is also true that MaJ. Stephan'a whole battalion landed at Fort Washington on the engineer's dock, and marched up the hill, capturing the power plant, the old fort and the bridge leading to the fort, and finally gathered In the old fort, where Col. Coffin visited them and louked over his Invaders. This achievement of the invaders' attacking force is explained at Fort Washington as inevitaole, since from the principle of the tight It would not matter how often the supposititious enemy were theoretically destroyed, as the advance was supposed to continue In any event. "Another phase of the maneuvers" Is the way this is expressed. Alter tne approaching boat is "spotted" by the searchi.ght and destroyed, constructively, by the big guns. It keeps on coming, and is said to "enter another phase," as if it were Just beginning its attack. When the boats landed at Fort Washington dock they were supposed both to be llVii'VAi-T^iU, nuu 1I.IVT MIUUCIMV SprUHg into being, at one and the same time. This Is a curious metaphysical distinction which seems to make it necessary to grant that a body can be in two places at the same time, since it is assumed that such . body both is and is not at a given place. When Maj. Stephan's men marched up the hill, like the noble king of France, they announced that they were spirits. As they were from the deep there might have been something in it. Such a Dizzy Problem. The Fort Washington theory, then, is that the men who started against Fort Washington from down the river never got anywhere near the fort, but the same men, "in a different phase," did the landing. Hence, it is argued at Fort Washington, the assumption of the new phase does not give the defending force a square deal, since it has no time to redispose Its men in the poi sltions where they would be assigned In ] case of an attack made under these latter | conditions, wh> n they have once been ar! ranged at distant oulposts to repel adj vances which are to be made against unI known points, thus rendering it necessary t?_? defend the whole l osition, besides watching t'.ie river, This sounds som< hat complicated. b' is even more coinp.icated than It sounds, to judge by the corrugated brows that are bent over the problem. Although the action was not to begin until S o'clock in the evening. Maj. Stephan and Capt. Ballentine got under <Way in the Cushing at about 5 o'clock, r.nd started down the river, with four boats and one gasoline launch, the latter under command of I>ieut. Briscoe of the Coast Artillery. At twenty minutes past 8 The Kvenlng Star's dispatch boat hove to alongside the Cushing, about nine miles down the liver from the forts, and found a changed vessel. While the expedition had been waiting down stream the men, under the direction of Capt. Walker and Capt. Feland, had disguised the boat with tarpaulins and ponchos. The white steamer had become black, and was swathed like a mummy. In response to the request of the expe dition's commander. The Star's boat took In tow two of the rowboats, loaded to the gunwales with solders, and was directed to cast them off at Marshall Hall dock, where Lieut. Briscoe would meet them and tow them up to Fort Washington. Suspects The Star Craft. Aboard The Star dispatch boat with the reported were Col. Urell, Maj. Slrams, SurKoon Woodman and Chaplain Dudley of the 2d Regiment. who came out to see the events at close quarters. At first, after the boats had been cast loose at Marshall Hall, there was no trace of Lieut. Briscoe, and a canoeist was commandeered into the service to act as scout and hunt him up. At last the lieutenant Hwooped down In hi* little gasoline launch, SUPPLIES FOR |pQBE== i v- : " -" ; I . I - . i "' ' j j . ; ' > JtW j*.V. J: ' ' .v - - ,: \ '. . ' ' ' ' ' , : > ' !

This was done, The Star l>oat keeping close to the Maryland shore in order to avoid the searchlights of Fort Washington as much as possible. But in spite of all precautions the boat was evidently regarded as a suspicious character, for tlie huge sixty-inch searchlight, brilliant as the sun at noon, kept its glare fixed upon it for a long time, even for fully twenty minutes after the tow was cast loose. The steersman was blinded by the rays and had to pick ills way up the river by guesswork and estimates of his distance from the river banks, .steering ahead by looking behind a good part of the time. Off Marshall Hall dock an accident to the tiller rope of The Star boat delayed operations for a few minutes, during which time the dishing, which had gone up nearly to the tlsh coommisslon station lay to, waiting for tlie smalled boats to overtake her. Then she steamed ahead, but at 9:20 o'clock was picked up by the searchlights and "sunk." At Fort Hunt it is contended that the honf'? HispillK.* t lip Pnrt W'nchinir. ton watchers for a long time, and that a boat preceding her was mistaken for the Cusiung. At 11:50 The Star boat was "gunk." "I let you have it right between the eyes," said Maj. Stevens to The Star reporter aftt r the maneuvers. "How did it leel?" "Second Phase" Activity. But in spite of being "sunk" the .Gushing kept right on, entering her "sscond phase." She steamed directly to the engineer dock at Fort Washington, brought up alongside and landed her men, of whom there were four companies. They found there a cossack outpost from Company L,, with a machine gun and a six-pounder. The officer in command of the invaders at once told the man at the field telephone to stop communication, then he himself telephoned to Capt. Goldeman of the regulars that a party of ten men had landed at the dock. This was to continue the illusion that there were few men on the Cushing. Then all four companies came ashore, considering that they had put the guns and searchlight out of business. They claim that at any rate the 6-pounder was not Working when they landed. Company B was marched up the almost perpendicular railway track with Company A in support, while companies C and D were left to cover the rear, sending at the same time a detachment to capture the quartermaster's dock, where there was also a machine gun in charge of a cossack outpost from Company L.. The companies that went up the hill claim, as has been said above, that they captured the power plant, the old fort and the bridge. On their way up the hill they also met Capt. Summers and part of his company coming down to reinforce the Company L. outposts. Afterward a rusl was made into the old fort, where many ladles had been watching the spectacle, and then, after inspection by Col. Collin, hostilities having been formally closed by the firing of two red bombs on each side of the river, the men boarded the Cushing and returned to Fort Hunt. Credit to Lieut. Fuqua. It is asserted at fort Hunt that the ruse of disguising the Cushing, of putting four companies aboard, keeping the men lying down, and given ..he Fort Hunt peo"pTe reason to think that the steamer did not carry the main attack, are the means "lay which the landing was effected. All the credit at Kort Hunt is attributed to Lieut. Fuqua of the iiid Infar.try, a graduate of the Cavalry and Infantry School, who is about to enter the Staff College. His mastery of detail and comprehensive grasp of situations is said to be remarkable. U liile the Cushlng was coming tip the river boats under Capt. Balentine, which had been lying in Piscataway creek, southeast of Fort Washington, were picked up by the searchlights, but some of them landed and the men had hand-to-hand encounters. Lieut. Briscoe's flotilla was caught as It came into the creek, hut those men landed also, some j>lunging into water up to their waists. There was plenty of excitement when the small parties met.

IIC rushed up to a Kort Washington man and took tiis Kiln away. Lieut. Briscoe, who was in a hurry to seize a battery, pushed an officer so hard that the latter fell down. There were no further casualties. Views at Fort Washington. At Fort Washington it is asserted that the defense was so carefully planned' tliat it would have been impossible for the invaders to land without being blown to pieces. Companies I and M were held near headquarters as a reserve, while Company L. was used as the rignt support, with cossack outposts stationed at threatened points with machine guns. Connecting patrols were thrown out, all connected by Held telephones, so that they could be moved when necessary and notify headquarters of threatened attack. Company K formed the It-f'r siinnnrt. ciittnlimr t?m BAntlinuct nurt .xf the reservation, with three important cossack outposts on Piscataway creek, strengthened with machine guns. A detachment of Company M guarded the < pumping station. 1 Furthermore, say the Fort Washington , n.en, the enemy was twice the strength of the defending force, whereas Lieut. Col. O'Brien, in his attack Tuesday night on l Fort Hunt, had used only his four com- ] panies of supports. ; Notes of the Lighter Side. < Tonight at Fort Hunt the regular officers j will entertain MaJ.

The Signal Corps is sending wireless and other messages from the front. Twenty rounds of blank ammunition per man were issued at 7::?> o'clock, so that the exercises were rendered realistic by the report of exploding cartridges.

The drill period of Saturday, the final day in camp, will be devoted to the company, the battalion and the regiment in close order. Progress by all the organizations in camp continues to be the rule. The Signal Corps, under the direction of Capt. Chandler, United States Army, and assisted by a detachment of ten men of the Signal Corps of the regular establishm. nt, is learning a great deal regarding wireless telegraphy and the use oT appliances in connection therewith; field telegraphy and telephony, the flying of signal kit's, the erect.ng of poles and the lik", in addition to conducting tel'graph and telephone offices. The first disciplinary measure of the encampment was necessary late yesterday. First ],ieut. John E. Bean, Company M, 1st Regiment. commander of the 1st Regiment guard, was placed under arrest for absence from his post. After an investiga- j tion he was releasi-d from arrest, relieved from duty In connection with the camp and ordered to return forthwith to Washington. Artillprw in "M*niinto^ nn'!l The 1st Battery, Field Artillery, is lo devote the remaining days of camp to mounted drill, and began tlie work yesterday afternoon.

The commissioned oflleers assembled this afternoon for instruction and discussion. Parade at 5:1:0 o'clock will be by the 1st .Regiment. A feature yesterday afternoon was drilling, beginning at 3:30 o'clock by the three troops of the second squadron of the 13th United States Cavalry and by Battery E, 3d United States Field Artillery, witnessed, among others, by a party of ladies from Fort Myer. Added to the spectacular features late yesterday was parade in which all the troops in camp participated. A large crowd of spectators was on hand to observe the ceremony and the exciting passing in review at walk, at trot and at gallop by the regular cavalry and artillery. Commissioners Macfarland and West are expected in camp tomorrow. They will be entertained by Col. Ourand, as Gen. Harries will depart. according to previous arrangement, early in the morning for the Potomac forts to witness the work of guardsmen performing duty there. Return to Washington. Orders were prepared today to govern :he return movement of the command to Washington. All guards will be held for Juty next Sunday until the troops disembark at Washington, when they will report ;o their respective commanding officers. The officers of the guard will turn over before 7 o'clock a.m. to the camp quartermaster all public property furnished for ;he use of the guard, and obtain the camp juartermaster's receipt for the same on the guard report book; the guard report aook will then be turned in to the acting idjutant genera). Troop trains will leave Harpers Ferry Sunday morning at the hours specified, and in sections made up as follows: First section, carrvine the 1st Rntfprv Field Artillery, with Its equipment of horses, guns, caissons mid baggage at 7 o'clock.

Precautions Against Confusion. To avoid confusion and delay, section niiflrtorm'ietcra will _ ho nrona rorl t n rlpslcr. nate the particular coach or coaches to be occupied by each organization or part of organization. In the event that more than one organization is assigned to a coach the particular coach to be occupied by the organizations will be indicated by appropriate labels. No baggage or other impedimenta will be taken on a passenger coach, and no officer or enlisted man will have anything on the coach except his arms and personal equipment. The personal baggage of an officer or enlisted man is limited to 150 pounds. Upon arrival at Washington section quartermasters will unload the horses and baggage on their respective sections. Mounted officers, except the officers of the 1st Battery, Field Artillery, will turn over their horses at Harpers Ferry to the section quartermaster of the second section, and will notify the owners of their horses of the expected hour of arrival of that section in Washington. The care of these horses by the quartermaster's department will cease j upon arrival of the section in that city. . t To Leave Train at Eckington. The troops, horses and baggage will be landed in Washington at the Eckington freight station, New York and Florida ave nues. Baggage will be sent from the railroad station In Washington at public expense only to the Center Market Armory, the 1st Battalion Armory and the 1st Separate Battalion Armory. Baggage to be sent else- ; where must be delivered at private expense. When commands leave the trains section quartermasters will see that no property is left in the cars. The servant of an officer will not be permitted to enter the train unless he holds a certificate from the acting quartermaster general showing that his railroad fare to Washington has been paid and that his badge has been turned in. Immediately after breakfast Sunday morning the cooks will thoroughly clean the ranges and all of the kitchen utensils preparatory to packing them. Ice boxes will be taken from the ground and the holes filled, and the ground around the kitchen thoroughly policed. Officers In charge of messes will supervise this work. Final Orders. The kitchens will be twice inspected by the camp commissary, the first inspection to be made to ascertain whether all uten- | sils are clean and in proper condition to be packed; the second Inspection to ascertain i whether the field ovens and other utensils are properly packed. Cooks will remain at their kitchens until after the inspections. When the Inspecting officer has found that the kitchens and ovens are In proper condition he will give a certificate to that ef- ' feet In order that the cook may receive pay. Cooks will turn in their blankets and ponchos to the camp quartermaster between the hours of 0 and 8 o'clock a.m. and will then receive their pay. They will retain their badges until they are taken up on the train. The personal baggage of officers will be packed, marked and placed in position for loading on wagons not later than 6 o'clock a.m. The colors will be lowered probably at 8 o'clock Sunday morning. Assembly is to be sounded fifteen minutes later, and the troops, headed by- the Brigade Band and the corps of field music, will then march through Bolivar and Harpers Ferry to the railroad station. No parade will occur in Washington. C. F. C. UNDER AN OLD STATUTE. Proceedings Which May Result in a Queer Penalty. An application was made to Prosecuting Attorney James L. Pugh at the Police Court this morning for an information against John H. House, a local contractor, carrying out work for the District, charging him with violating a Maryland law, passed In 1723, and In which the penalty is "200 pounds of tobacco." Prosecuting Attorney Pugh has taken the matter under consideration until next Tuesday. The court action is the result of a complaint made to the District Commission ers by Gen. J. M. Wilson, 1773 Massachusetts avenue extended, in which he protests against the use of that street on Sunday for heavy dirt wagons and asks if i there is any way to stop it. The matter was referred to. Corporation Counsel r Thomas for advice, and he suggested the 1 old Maryland law as the only one under which prosecution might be begun. I That law prohibits persons from working t on Sunday or causing others to do unncc- j esaary work on Sunday. Child Falls From Window. While playing In the front room on the second story in her home at 2100 1st street northwest this morning Dorothy kemball, three years old, fell from the window to the front steps, about sixteen feet below.
