Wounded Americans Landed at
Key West Hospitals.
KEY'WEST, Fl,.. uly 7.?The three |
hundred and twenty-five wounded he- j
roes of Santiago brought here by the
Iroquois, are doing well and none is in <
danger. They are distributed between
the marine and convent hospitals and f
etr unused clsar factory which had
been previously fitted for such purposes.

quartered at the convent hospital, j
where the nuns are doing fine service as
nurses. At &U places the utmost care I
and skillful medical and surgical at- j
tentloa are devoted to the wounded
men. I
These wounded warriors, returning to j
their native soil after their glorious
achievements In the field, were,strange |
to say, received In rather cavalier fashIon.
Their landing would have been
commonplace had It not been grotesque. \
The Iroquois entered the harbor about
5 o'clock and through somebody's neg------?

where she remained for three hours, a
brace of government tugs struggling to
free her, while from the rails of the
stranded.ship peered bronsed faces of
wounded men, eaotr to step once more
on American soil.
Kventually fhe steamer slid off and
was docked. News of her arrival had
brought to the deck a motley crowd of
curiosity seekers, mostly Cubans. There
was hot a sign of enthusiasm, even
amonj? those very persons for whom the [
disabled soldiers had received their j
hurts?not a cheer, not a hand clap. It
was exactly as If one of the regular line
steamers had arrived on & day trip and
was discharging her ordinary passengers.
Thero was no gang-plank and
the wounded men were obliged to clamber
down the companion ladders as best
they could to get ashore.
All the ambulances in ue ionn
been brought Into service, but despite
their frequent and hurried trips, filled
to the last Inch, the provision was en
tircly Inadequate. In consequence many
of the men had no other resource than
to walk four blocks to the horse car
line, on which they were jolted t-t the
hospitals, at the other end of the town.
The sight of the stalwart fellows,
blacked by the tropical sun, bruised and
scratched by Cuban Jungles and wrapped
in bandages which covered, but did
not conceal their wounds as they shambled
and straggled along the rugged
roads, had in It much ot pathos, per
haps tragedy. ^ .*
It was 11 o'clock before the last of I
those able to keep their feet had been
safely disembarked. Most of these f

or hands. About thlrty-flve oth- |
ers, whose Injuries are in the lower j
parts of their bodies, had to be carried
off In stretchers. Fifteen, who are suffering
from a mild attack of measles,
were left on board the steamer and will
probafily be taken back to Cuba, when
the Iroquois returns.
The debarkation was not completed
until early yesterday morning. Most
of these men laugh at their wounds.

every case, the moment make-shift
ban da cos were swathed about their |
wounds they pushed again to the front, j
until It eventually became necessary to
atrip them of their cartridge belts.
Said one of them In telling this of the
others: "Damn It; they had to stay
back then. They had nothing to fight
t with." i
i They talk of the two days of bloody ,
battle in the most unconcerned way im- '
aginable. One man was struck by a
' mauser bullet while in the act of firing ,
his revolver. The ball struck his right j
fore-arm between the wrist and elbow. 1
It went straight through the forearm, |
then penetrated the upper arm, struck i
his ri*ht side and passed through his
body, coming out at the left aide.
Strange to say he will not die, but he
swears he will make his way back to
Cuba and score at least ten dead Spanlards
for each of his Rashes.
All are loud In their praises of the
fighting qualities of the Spanish troops,
but say their losses must be enormous.
Of our own dead And wounded extravagant
figures are given by many, but
wiser heads place the figures for the
two days' fighting at between 1.200 and
J,500, perhaps three hundred of whom
were killed.
At the hospitals suits of pajamas
were served out to the soldiers and
they lounge about the rooms In the
airy garments, rending the latest newspaper
tales of their own prowens and
chaffing each other thereon. Indeed,
many of those whose wounds are trifling
have been unconcernedly walking
about the streets and renewing friendships
at the hotels, with no other apparel
than these scanty sleeping garments.
The Iroquois will probably return to
Santiago within a day or two. and
meanwhile another ship, with a larger
body of more seriously wounded men, is
expected to arrive here hourly.

BEFORE SANTIAGO, Monday, July 4,

Despite all the caro bestowed upon
them by tho medical staff, two officers

also brass covered bullets, with the

lu tm Attitude of Ibfl ContlBintal PrtM
of Knrope Towsnti Amtrle*.
LONDON, July 7.?The Vienna correspondent
ot the Tlraei, remarking upon
the "striking change in the attitude
of the Austrian press since the American
victories," says: "Ho trace ot encouragement
to Spain has since been
seen. The 'European steam roller'
could not have worked at Washington
and President McKlnley stood less In
aive ot European Intervention than did
the sultan."
The Berlin correspondent or the
Times, commenting on the profound
Impression produced by the American
successes and Ambassador White's
speech on the German mind, quotes at
length from the Frankfort Zeitung,
which defends the United States against
German newspaper attacks and predicts
that a friendlier feeling will now prevail.
The Berlin Post, the correspondent
says, seems rather embarrassed by
Ambassador White's speech, but Is disposed
to admit that the speech "will
materially help to dispel the unfriendly
feeling which threatens to arise between
the Americans and Germans."
The correspondent says: "Americans!
will be well advised not to exaggerate
the significance of German press opinions,
friendly or the reverse, except
where they bear tb9 direct Impress of
official Inspiration. Occasionally, however.
a German journal reflects with
wonderful accuracy of Intuitive feelings
which actuate wide and Influential circles
in the German empire. Thus tho
Neueste Nachrlchten, while welcoming
the friendly words of< Ambassador
White, expresses Its anxiety concerning
the growing sea power of the United
States. It finds that. If the gigantic development
of the British navy is accompanied
by the growth of a great
American fleet, the maintenance of tho
balance of power will involve great
maritime exertions on the part of Germany.
The German nation, this paper
says, will be compelled to face this
necessity, even though. It may be convinced
that the German and American
flags will always fly In friendship and
never in opposition."

To-day's advance In prices was probably
Intended as an admonition to tha
bear party that they were not to be allowed
to have their own way In forcing
down prices even In the existing dullness
of speculation. To-day's buying
gave no indication that It grew out of
an urireni dosire for the ownersblD of
securities but eeemed rather an organ- :
ized effort to mark up prices. There
waa some covering of short contracts
Induced by the advance, but nothing to
show that there had been any large
outstanding short interest in the market.
The advance in Sugar may have ;
been tfue to buying by shorts to realize
their profits on the adoption of the Hawaiian
annexation resolution by the
senate yesterday and probably the demand
from this quarter Induced some
bidding, irp of the mock to exert pressure
on the shorts.
The buying of the Vanderbllts was ,
clearly a professional manoeuvre by
large bull Interests. The gains In these
stocks ranged from 1 to 2 points. The
powerful sympathetic effect which this
group always exercises un tnu balance
of the Mst was shown by the general
responses to-day after the opening depression
caused by lower prices In L/ondon.
When the short llvtd buying in
the Vanderbllts ceased the general list
showed a sHghHy reactionary tendency
but not sufficient to wipe out the earlier
gains. The pushing up of prices is
clearly designed to Invite outside inter- ,
ests In the market, hut no such Interest
was manifested to-day. There were
special movements of note In the rubber
stocks and of Manitoba, which is
guaranteed' to yield 6 per cent by Great !
Northern, sold up 4 points and was bid !
up before the close 2 points further to (
151. The pending adjournment of congress
and" renewed reports that Spain
was about to sue for peace tended to
help the rise. Reports of railroad earnings
were also encouraging, handsome
advances being shown over the corresponding
period last year outside the ,
grain carrying roads-, on which the traffic
reached abnormal proportions last
year. The money market continues
ea*y. notwithstanding that the banks
are losing money- to the sub-treasury by
reason, of the collection of subscriptions
to the new bond Issue. New York exchange
in Chicago fell to-day to par. as
against 20 cents premium yesterday.
There was a rise of 14 cents in the actual
rates for sterling exchange in response
to the hardening in the London
money market.
Kings county elevated firsts were the
feature in bonds with a rise of 5 per
cent. The county's stock advanced to
lUft old in the outside market, against
sales last week at 3. Prices generally
were about steady. Total sales $2,300.000.
Quotations In government bonds were
unchanged throughout.
