Beyond the fact that Lieutenant BrauiverweuKwr was the* officer detailed by Captain Ghu? to effect the capture, little has become known of the details of the exploit, and the graphic story told by the hero of the occasion In the following letter will be thoroughly enjoyed by the Intelligencer's readers-, many of whom are personal friends of the lleurtinant.

We have Just carried out our orders to capture the Spanish authorities ut the capital of the Lodrone Islands, Agana. I was selected by the captain to undertake this Job and given 160 men to hind with, ae a starter. I went ashore to have a talk with the governor about affairs and the results ' were that I did not lose even a single man. The matter was all settled in one dav and wu are carrying with us fifty- ' four soldiers (Spanish) and six officers, ' besides a lot of Mauser rltles and nearly 10,000 rounds of ammunition. I had the whole to handle and did it up quickly. ? The captain's instruction? were to wait a half hour for his answer to ultima- j turn, then use my troops. I waited, ( and in just twenty-nir.e minutes the governor handed me his sealed reply, J addressed t?? the captain of my ship out J In the harbor about four or five miles off. . I knew this was sealed with the sole object of gaining time, and hence I broke the seal, read the contents, the governor protesting and saying that was a letter ror my captain. * repncu. "I represent him here. You are now my prisoners, senors, and will have to come on board ship with me.!' They protested and plead and finally the governor said: "Ton came on shore to talk over matters. and you make ue prisoners ln stead." 1 replied: "I camo on shore to hand you a letter and to get your reply; In this reply now In my hand you agree to surrender all under your Jurisdiction.. If this means anything at all, It means that you will accede to any demands I may deem proper to make.

H FAVORITE HYMNS |( War and Peace, and their Powc of Inspiration HEME OF A TIMELY SERMO lt the first christia: church, sunday evening. b rev. c. m. oliphant?"ten1 ino on the old cam GROUND/' AND "BATTLE HYM OP THE REPUBLIC" AMONG TH SELECTIONS CALLED BY TH SPEAKER?HYMNS FOR SP1RI1 UAL WARFARE. Last evening a timely ^ermon wa ellvered at the First Christian churc y the pastor, Rev. C. M. Ollphan Songs of "War and Peace" was tli heme of hfa remarks, and apt quote Ions were made from the best know ymns, with reference to marilal fee) igs. Rev. Mr. Ollphnnt said: In all life's contests nothing Is mot elpful than music. It keeps our spirit live. When in trouble and overwhelm d with difficult?, a song lifts us on nd removes our fears. Many arc th ymns of war and peace, occasioned b ar and peace. These hymns indicat ic spirit of'the age In which they wer rltten. Luther in 1523 wrote: righty fortress Is our God." It wa jng in his time so often as to give I ie name of Battle hymn of the Re wintlnn The king of Sweden, Gustavus Adol bus, bod this hymn sung In Severn ittles. His soldiers sang It Jn the bat e of Lutzen In 1632 In which battl Ing Gustavus lost his life. Isaa 'alts In 1719 wrote a hymn for use i! ar, based on the 20th Psalm. Th rst couplet: "Now may the God o ower and Grace attend His people* umble cry." It has been often use< id sung when people desired wars t rase and peace to reign from the river the ends of the earth. For "Through centuries of sin and woe Hath streamed the crimson flood." War has been an unending antago Ism between man and man; betxvee: Ibes and nations. Oliver Wendell Holmes was quick t ispond to the sentiment of the -time hen he wrote in 1861, the "Arm; ymn:" "O Lord of hosts! Almighty King Behold the sacrifice we bring." These and many other hymns were a ispiration In war times ond teach u le spirit that pervaded the hearts c le people in these times. Music has helped the spirits of th jople and soldiers. O. W. 'Holmes als rote one that was helpful In this waj : Is a prayer for the protection of sol lerB. Its tirst line: Father of all mercies; Heavenl Friend" Then the last stanza Is: Let each unhallowed cause .that bring he stern destroyer cease, hv flnmlnc nncel fold hid wings, nd seraphs whisper peade." Band music has been Inspiring. I le Battle of Waterloo Wellington a critical moment found the Forty-sec id Highlanders wavering and that th enson alone lay In the fnot that th and had ceased to play. He instantl rde?ed that the pipes be played in fu >rce. The effect was magical. The tilled and went forth strengthened t in the hard-earned contest. An army chaplain after the la<e wn itpressed the opinion that the -wo jngs and Christian hymns did more I laintain the spirits of the people on Jldlers until a decisive conclusion wa cached than any other single caus aid he: "Eloquence and money dl leir part, but music more." The "Bal e Hymn of <he Republic," by Mrs. Ji a Ward Howe, was written becaus fie authoress had o vision of war on f the God of war, of human slaver nd freedom, of soldierly courage, su> jrlng and endurance. "Tenting on tl lid Camp Ground," was written in sw minutes, in 1862, by Walter Kit! edge, while preparing to go to battl d first it was not populnr but aftei ards became Immensely popular. J uns like this: We aro tenting on the old cam ground, >ur weary hearts, a song of home, ind friends we love so dear.",' Chorus runs: Many are the hearts that are wear to-night, Wishing for wars to cease, lany are the hearts looking for U right To nee the dawn of pence. 'entlng to-night, tenting to-night c the old camp ground." There Is one hymn written in 1882, I >. F. Smith, a theological student i >ndover,which remains unsurpassed, as a history of sixty-six years an ntll another poetic seer Is sent froi .hove, It will hold undisputed tin nnlt. ns the gr?at national hymn f< ill national occasions, secular an acre J. It is "America." My country, 'tis of thee, Sweet land of liberty: ?f thee 1 sing: Land where my fathers died, ,and of the pilgrlmV pride. From every mountain sido set freedom ring." All these and other hymns JJke 1 hould ever live and will ever live, 1 he hearts of nil true patriots. The spiritual warfare has brougl r?rth hymns that havo Inspired 11 'hristlnn soldier. These hymns ahoul e sung frequently In our church. The re peculiarly helpful. Isaac Watts wrote: I am n soldier of the cross, tnd I'm not ashamed to own my Lord, Charles Wesley wrote: A charge to keep I have." Du/fleld wrote: Hand up. stand up for Jesus.*1 Sabine Baring Gould wrote: Onward, Christian soldiers." These soldier songs are among tV inst popular, and inspire Christla arts to loftier things.
