A BOUGH BID?B Tails of the FamoM ICiigagemon of Jnljr I Before Santiago. M4sa Bell? McKlnley. of Richmond, Jefferson county, O., has received a letter from her brother, Charles McKlnley, a Jefferson county boy, who Is a member of the "Rough Riders," troop E, First U. 8. V. cavalry, in which ho tells of :he egagement In front of Santiago. IN SIGH/T OF SANTIAGO (Outskirts), July 7. 1898. I suppose you have heard by this t1m? all About the battle we had the 1st of July. It lasted flfty-four hours. The ojght of June 20 we marched to a point about three miles from the outskirts of town and overlooking- the enemy's trenches and fortifications about one mile In front of us. Early on July 1, the artlHery- which we were supporting, opened Are. Thero was no reply ror a few minutes, then the shells began to come thick and fan and to the spot; one of our boys and some Cubans were killed before we could change position. The artillery soon silenced the enemy's cuna?In twenty minutes fj-oin the time they opened. Then wo went to the front and the line of battle. The Spaniards were In* a thick growlfh of groan, weeds and brush wifh wire fenc* running through It at the foot of a hill' where their breastworks were. It took us an hour or moro n hem, outj of there. Our regiment vu hehi In renew * then, but when we started to> the front And charged th? hill we went rlgtot ahead, got mixed up wttfc the Third, Sixth and Tenth reglliierti. but wo were anions the flrM ot reach the top. The Spaniards foil back to their trenches on another elevation about 600 to 800 yards away, and gave u* a hot fire from there, which wo returned wtth good effect. After I got to the top and flrwl a few rounds I got a slight clip oro the head; then. I dug Into them In good earnest. E troop had one Irtlled and<slx wounded hero. Then the Whole line advanced on the next position and forced them hack to their trenches Just out*4d? of the outskirts, srfcer* they are now. Jlriog ceased ao dark of the 1st and ' -9r ^ t'i INSURGE Asulnaldo's band of Insurgents ar progress on their way to Manila. 1 quest Atfuinaldo not to be too severe lean admiral cannot countenance me Is anxious to take the Philippines In a we fold in line of battle that night and trenched the rest of the hill. Next morning: they opened on ue before light but we were too many for them. They put up a white flag at noon Sunday and have had It up ever since; have had several conferences under the truce flag and exchanged prisoners for Hobson. amil the Merrlmac crew. I understand the truce is to end the 9th; thero have been half a dosen times set, so we don't know what to believe. We sleep on arms every night. We were called out at 5 o'clock the other morning; some one reported the enemy to be advancing on us. We take turns of six hours in the trenches. 1 am on now, from 4 to 10 p. m.; from where I am sitting I can almost see the color of the roseate' eyes. They are 500 yards in front of me. We dug another trench last night 100 yards n?irer, so we can get within about 40tJ yards of them. We could see a line oi' reinforcements marching in on our left this evening; thero must be near 2,000 of them. Our line of battle is eight to ten miles long; have them flanked on each slda and Sampson hn? captured- their licet. I think they want to surrender, but 1?* they openr up again something Is going to happen. We have bomb-proofs built; sheds with thick dirt roofs. We have all worked hard since the 1st, and have been, in a hurry and push all the time. I guess if you hadn't sent this paper I'd' had to write on brown* paper I have an old dirty envelope addressed to mother that I'll have to send this In. but you must excuse everything now; my pencil Is less than an inch long. It is Just run down? and the bands are commencing to play in different parts of the line. They say our horses will be hero soort; glad they weren't here now. C. E. McKIXLET. BOUND FOB MANILA. Interesting Letter From Soldier boy at Sun FraucUeo. The Tenth Pennsylvania regiment of volunteer* was among the first to leave for Manila* It 15 commanded by Colonel Hawkins, and was formerly under Colonel Streator, of Little Washington, well known to Wheeling. A short lime ago 300 recruits for the regiment made the trip across the continent to San Francisco, and among them was Ernest Newlon, a eon of Mr. C. T. Newlon, the Wheeling brokey. Mr. Newlon yesterday received the following intereeting naratlve of the trip, which the Intelligencer is permitted to reproduce: CAMP MfiRRITT, Cal.. July 11.? Well, we are here at last, and I must say* that this glorious climate of California "is off me." It is colder than thunder, and if I didn't have my sweater along I would freeze to death. All the other boys are wishing they had theirs. On the way out we received splendid receptions at all the towns. Even the smallest western towns had lemonade and flowerj and cheering to *>urn. me trip across the plain* was tiresome, but after we struck the Rockies the scenery waa grand. It is beyond description. We saw several mountain lions, but no deer or bear. We passed through Salt Lake City at night, and so did not Ret to see It. But the next morning, we got a pond view of the lake. We wore now on the desert, and It's the most God-forsaken counI try I ever saw. Miles and miles of sand, with not a living thing in sight, but i there were a lot of magazine* In the cars, so I didn't mind it much. Then we came to the Sierra Nevada | mountains and sow more grand scenery. I only wish you had been along. I liked ?.hls part of the trip bettor than any other. We went through miles of I snow-sheds. They are dark and Btnokey, I and enough to make you wish you were ! dead. I didn't wish I was dead, hut I | did wish I was back home just for a lit I tie WMie you Know. I 80 far we havent' seen a pretty girl In the west, but there was a surprise at "Frisco." The Red Cross ladles were "thoroughbreds" and no mistake. All the way from Utah we snw lots of I Indians. They were so dirty and ugly J that one doesn't care to look at them. We arrived at 'Frisco In the morning. I The Ited Cross people gave us n lovely I breakfast of coffee, bread, sandwlchen. I doughnuts. hard boiled ej:K? and a bunch of flowers to cach man. It was I Sunday morning, and there were not many people on the streets. but where I we did meet any, there was lots of cheering and applauding. The p<>ople out here are wild about the soldiers; people In the east are like lco-bergs, compared to them. Must fall In to drill. | Drill 1s over and so I'll go on.

The hhlpa will fly the colors of Spain and will be manned entirely, by Spanish crews.

July 20.-The United States transport Seneca, Captain Decker, arrived at quarantine to-day and was detained- by the health officer for disinfection.

Dr. Doty says that while these cases are not well j marked' ana* are noi oy any means yei- | low fever, ho will wot take any chances am* has decided, to remove them' to Swinburne lslaawl Immediately.

The Seneca, now kown as transport No. 5, left" Slboney'.Cilba, July 14, with ninety-irine sick and wounded' soldiers nnd forty-eight passengers. The passengers were already on board- when1 the sick and wounded were received. The ship, being Intended for transporting troops, was noo in any way flted for a hospital ship. The passengers were Colonel Yermsleff, Russian army officer; General Euver Pacha, Turkish army; Lieutenant Aklyama, Japanese naivy; Count Von Rebeure, German arnw: Commander Anderson. Swedish navy; Lieutenant Abilgaard, Norwegian navy; Mrs. Sylvester Scovel; Miss Jeannotte Jennings, of the Red Cross society, and a number of newspaper correspondents. The arrival of the sick and wounded on- board the Seneca off Slboney caused considerable aJarm, as there were no medicines, no antiseptic dressings, no thermometers, no surgical Instruments, doctors or nurses. Drs. Hicks and Bird, assistant surgeons, and one nurse came to help out. Miss Jennings did great service and merited tho praise bestowed upon- her by all on board. The foreign officers of the Russian*, Swedish, and German delegation? and their assistants gave up their state rooms' and quarters to the sick and took pot luck with the convalescents. The steamer between decks was filthy and not lie for human beings to occupy. The bunks were built of rough boards amd looked like cattlo pens. The ice gave out first and then the fresh water became vile and unlit for use. A little was obtained by condensation. The washing of wounds was I" mnnv- m?a* llrtrtft with Rait wn.ler. Tlie food' was scarce. Tho passengers say that if yellow fever had appeared on the voyage home, the mortality would have been fearful. Nothing could be done on board to prevent the aceumuKbtion of filth. Tha vessel's capacity waa crowded to the utmost. Bunks and. cots were erccted in every direction. The Seneca brought ttie bow chaser, or bow pun of the VIzraya, which war put on board before sailing. CAMP MERRITT.
