rejoicing had it not been accompanied
by the news that the yellow fever had
broken cut in our army at Santiago.
Everthing thst money and science anc

disease is being done, and the reports
indicate that the fever is so far of a

TO RETURN them to spain.
The War Department is perfecting
?arrangements to send the Spaniard8,
-who surrendered at Santiago, back to
Spain, under parole, in accordance
with the terms of surrender, and they

Sending them to Spain is the best nos

cheaoer than feeding them |and keep?

OOLORhD SOLDIERS IN BATTLE.
[Baltimore, Md., Morning Herald.]
It did not need the demonstration
which took place at the brifif but des?
perate battle of La Qiasina to prove
the valor of th* colored troops. Even
as far back as 85 years ago, during the
Civil War, it was satisfactorily shown
that colored men, under proper disci?
pline, made efficient soldiers, and the
memorable rep -rt of General Butler
th*t. "the colored troop* fought nobly"
wat> not an empty compliment.
According to authentic accounts of
the La Quag in a engagement, it wbb tbe
gallant interposition of the Teuth
C ni ted States Cavalry, colored, which
prohably saved the Rough Riders from
annihilation, and which enabled them
to drive the Spaniards from their
strong ambushed position.
The testimony of the commanding
officers and of all observers was to the
effect that the Tentn Cavalry made a
brilliant dash and stood to its colors
manfully.manifesting conspicuous evi
dence of personal courage ar.d splendid
training.
Whatever may be the racial preju?
dices against the colored segment ol
our population, they are not strong
enough in any quarter to obscure Um
public appreciation of the fact that the
colored citizen makes an admirable
soldier in many respects In physical
development he meets every militarj
requirement, his powers of endurance
arc in no wise inferior, and he has the
adventurous spirit which Rta him foi
life on the tented field.
Of the 70,000,000 people of our great
BepnbUe over 7,000,000 are colored
and il is gratifying to know that thi;
formidable element ii pro vi ag its valiu
in periods of public peril.
The American people ara fair-mind
ed, and they delight to give honoi
where honor is due. They applauc
the valor of the Tenth Cavalry ai
heartily as the heroic dash of thi
Rough Riders,
In this free and enlightened country
the paths of glory are open to all alike'

OOLORED TROOPS WIN PRAISE FROM

Splendid Behavior of the 24th Regiment
ot United Infantry.
[From the Springfield Republican.!
"It is surprising, perpaps shameful,
that there has been so little recogni?
tion of the tmc- that the Twenty-fourth
Regiment of United States Infantry,
which s > distinguished itself at San
Juan hill last Friday, was composed of
Negroes.
The correspondents of the New York
papers at the front seem to have utter?
ly ignored the fact. They miss no
opportunity to glorify Roosevelt's
Rough Riders or the Seventy-first New
York Volunteer* for their work on
that day, yet never a word about this
regiment of colored regulars.
Col. T. W. Higginson, who learned
to appreciate the value of Negroes
some thirty-tl ve years ago, will not be
surprised at the story of Twenty-fourth
Infantry at San Juan. Three compa?
nies of the regiment lost every oue of
ita elli *ere before the fight ing was over.
Four of the regimental Captains were
knocked over by Spanish bullet within
a minute of each other, and the Lieu?
tenant Colonel was severely wounded.
Company F, in a --hort time had only
its Captain left, and no other commis?
sioned otli oat.
Tt is said that the Twenty-fourth
really bore the brunt of the San Juan
fight, the Spaniards directing their
main attack upon them on the theory
that Negroes would not stand the pun?
ishment. Vet companies remained
steady without a single omcer. Asa
final display of their remarkable dis?
cipline and nerve, this regiment of Ne?
groes under the hottest fire of the
day, "changed front forward on its
tenth company," which is called a
manoeuver not altogether easy ona
peaceful parade ground home.
The value of a Negro as a soldier can
hardly bl doubted after that day's
work While we are distributing cards
of merit to Generals and Commodores,
lee us not forget the colored soldiers of
the Twenty-fourth Infantry."

The Gallant Tenth.
(From the N. Y. Mail and Express )
"All honor to the black troopers of
the gallant Tenth ! No more striking
example af bravery and coolness has
been shown since the destruction
of the Maine than by the colored
veterans of the Tenth Cavalry
during the attack upon Caney on
Saturday. By the side of the intrepid
Rough Riders they followed their lead?
er up the terrible hill from whose crest
tne desperate Spaniards poured down
a deadly fire of shell and musketry.
They never faltered. The rents in
their ranks were filled as soon as made.
Firing as they marched, their aim was
splendid, their coolness was superb and
their courage aroused the admiration
of their comrades, their advance was
greeted with wild cheer from the white
regiments, and with an answering
shout they pressed onward over the
trenches they had taken close in pur?
suit of the retreating enemy. The war
has not shown greater heroism. The
men whose own freedom was baptized
with blood have proved themselves ca?
pable of giving up their lives that oth?
ers maybe free Today is a glorious
Fourth for all races of people in this
great land.
