alute of fifteen runs to be fired ana
roops M, K. C. H and K, of the Seoond
ejrular cavalry, were detailed to escort
leneral Shatter Into camp when he
bould land.
General Shatter and his staff were
inded from the City or Mexico snoray
efore 1 o'clock, being taken off in the
uxlllary gunboat Alleon and landed at
tie "floating- dock" some distance away
rom the quarantine pier. General

enerul Wheeler had Che cavalry drawn

raited to salute General Shafter. He
'as not aware that General Shafter waa

ad the troops remained In Santiago
tiey would have fared much worse.
Burgeon Meyer, who came north on

as to the condition of the transport,
It was on the vessel that foureeo
Ninth Massachusetts men died,
lurgeon Meyer stated that when the
illegheoy left Santiago there were but
welve sick men on board, but Illness
leveloped very quickly on the vessel,

BIDS FOE BATTLESHIPS
Ar Very SatUffcetory to (ha If?vjr D*p?rt>
mn>t-OMgraphl?d Hitritatira.
WASHINGTON, D. C- Sept. L?The
I result of the bidding for the construcI
tlon of the three big battleships authorI
Ised br Congress is eminently eatiafacI
tary to the navy department From'the
face of the bid tt Is deer that the government
Is going to secure very much
more In the matter of power and speed
thso was expected; that the cost Is going
to be Ipse than was paid proportionately
for the Illinois class ;and finally,
that the department will bp able to
distribute the work among the three
big building concerns, a method of construction
that always redounds to the
advantage or the government.
! The bids were made In three classes,
I the first being wider the plans prepared 1
by the navy department calling for t
ships of about 11.600 tons with a speed t
| of sixteen knots. The other classes
I were under plana prepared by the bidders
themselves, in some cases on additional
plans prepared by the engineer- I
ing bureau, but not included in the
original specifications sent out to bidders.
.
A careful examination of the bids
shows that the prices asked for the 1
vessels planned on the department designs
average slightly less than the
price to be paid for the Illinois class, j
although these ships are improvements
in some respects. But it also appears ,
that tbe bids are within the limit oicost
fixed by Congress,even where the build- .
ers propose to make them of eighteen
knots speed, much better ships than ,
called for by the department It Is ex
pec ted that the only bids considered J
therefor* will be for the eighteen knots
ships. In this case, the Newport News
Corftpsinr Is the lowest bidder, but bids
for only one ship. The highest Is the
I Union Iron Works, but the aot of Congress
allows the department to make
| an allowance of not to exceed 4 per cent ]
I In favor of the Pacific coaat bidders, so j
that brings their bid within line. '

American Manufacturer will Hf tomorrow:
*
ThU week's development, have taken
nothing from tbe strength of the Inn
and steel market. In every bnmch,ooo
dltlons are quite encouraging, Unt in
the leading lines, something of a hill to
shown, so far as sales are concerned. Ih
some, the material Is hard to get, and
in others, buyers are pretty well tW?C
up tor the present The present lull,
however, Is regarded as merely an Intermission
which is sooq to be followed
by another movement. Our reports from
various points this week ahow that this
is about the case evenrwhsre. At Philadelphia
an enormous amount of {justness
in pig iron was done during the
past three weeks, and the demand will
likely be in small lots for some time to
come. It is thought that the next
movement will be seen when buyer* .
must over requirements on business
now coming into the mills and foundries.
About 00,000 tons of steel billets
were sold during the week for deferred
delivery.
The merchant bar mills are doing the
t>est business in two years. There la a
good market for pipes a*d tubes, the
nheet mills are full of business and
there is a vigorous demand for structural
material. At Cincinnati the n!f
iron trade Is not large. The shtet mills
are active. Chicago reports a fair la*
qulry for small amounts of pig Iron.
While the large southern furnaces are
holding the advance, smaller maker*
are willing to concede aomethlng. Then
is no diminution In the oonsnmpttoQ.
Merchant steel is higher and bars ara
in good demand. Car building wort la
active. In the Wheeling district ftncral
trade Is good, the best being seen in
Bessemer pig and steel There la a de.
elded improvement in muck bar, and
the finishing mills are all working full.
The iron market Is stronger, and thft
