Cadet 8. G. MagUl in thj? Chicago
Tltn?'?J-HeraId: At first th<T%i0p was
filled with the rattle of drums wfrllng to
quarters and the clarion of bugles, all of
which wo Knew meant that wF'iere to
do or die, and the most touching Incident

j*ent at the work, sinning and Joyous,
without a thought of their personal
fc'one of them had ey|r been

they would puint out sheila striking the
t/ater close by and yell, "Lowj balli"
and as the shells whistled over ua,
HlKh ball-1" j
a( the Hpunlah ships came ant they 1
opened a terrible lb* on ua, and It waa
only owing to their poor marksmanship
tlut our ships did not uA riddled,
'/hose four bpanish ships ljall* about
ft?rty or lift> rapid-fire guns apiece,
which gave them twenty to twentyjlve
kuhh on a broadside, capable of llr- i
inn an uverage of three shots a minute
from the heavier gutis and ten ahota a 1
minute from the lighter guns. They 1
Kept the water all around jib boiling 1
with their shells, even if thejr did not I
strike ua. It hua turned out that the I
Oregon was only once hit by a small j
rhcll. which hardly made more than a ,
Cent lu her heavy armor. Twice we .
were also hit.with fragments of burst- j
lug shells.
When the Spanish fleet was dlscov- 1
fred coming out of the harbor the Ore- 1
uon at once, commenced st#mlng to- J
ward the entrance before the other I
ships of the squadron commenced, mov- i
<ag. The Iowa waa soon bearing In to- i
but aeemed to stop in her ,
effort to t turned around to the west- ,
ivarri. which was the direction taken by
Ihc Spaniards. By this time the Oregon
wa? going at full speed and making '
right for tho Meet. She crossed the bows I
?f th<* Jovvu like a shot. I
One of my old classmates, who was In 1
the military top qt the Iowa when tho j
Oregon passed her. said to me: "All of a
sudden I saw an enormous wave on
Ihc P"rt bow. and looking around 1 saw '
the < Toson walking by us. looking llko
a. volcano as the black smoke poured :
from h?-r funnels. I said to riiyarff: 'For .
the love of Mike, are we standing still?' J
f ne passed, barely missing us. and left 1
US Demr.U, anu lilt? 1>UJ sue ciuevu (Iiiu
that r ur v.ns the finest sight I *
ever expect to see." '
This Is the opinion expressed by oil 1
(ho officers on the other ships, und that "
(lash of the Oregon will live in the mem- Jj
ory of every one who saw it to the end I
nr their da ye. Tiie credit for the beau- ?
isrul work done by the Oregon, whereby j
carried off the honors of the day, Is :
fiye to Captain Clark, who quickly saw *
the objective point of the Spaniards and ?
ruided the ship so as to Intercept them. "
j;gptain Clark is now the pride of the .
Hvhole fleet, and is recognized as a tacjjelan
of the very highest order. It Is ?
- pleasant sight to see the way in which
the Jackies in the fleet admire him. ,
the day of the fight, when he went over u
to the tlagshlp to report to the admiral ?.
in regard to the chase of tht Colon, the J!
*cliors all lined up on the rail of the
different ships as he went by in his a
Kip and cheered him again and again.
Tr.e boys of the different ships have 8
written a number of songs dedicated to f
Jjlm. 11
Th* high speed we were able to get v
up rlsrht away and the way we hung on u
to them, driving them on to the beach *
one after the other with the heavy tire
from our guns, was what saved the day. {?
Jt must be remembered that the four *
Spanish cruisers were almost battle- 1
ehips. and had a greater speed than w
most cruisers In the American navy.. All
of our battleships, except the Oregon. 8
were foul bottomed nnd apparently had v
little stoam on, so that when the enemy P
Hlxteon or seventeen knots' speed. those
battleships which were In condition to ?
mak* only twelve or thirteen knots ?
found themselves left behind.
Hy the foresight of the captain and "
the chief engineer of the Oregon we had h
kept every boiler In use and a high a
("team pressure on from the time we 8
left San Francisco until the Spanish
fleet came out of Santiago harbor. a
Th^n we felt rewarded for this persist- ?
race by being able to go through our *
fire! ns though they were standing still, v
zrA by the time we were abreast of the *
r?r vessel In the Spanish fleet we wero ?
making sixteen or seventeen knots our- c
Mvcs and overhauled each one In sue- S
<vsi!on. This may be of Interest, for 1
ninny will undoubtedly wonder how It 1
came nbout that the Oregon was able to G
I take the leading position, although she

The eleven Spanish shlp9 destroyed at
Manila carried about 2,000 men. The
Jiounty, therefore, will amount to about
1100,000, of which Admiral Dewey gets
one-twentieth, or $10,000. and the balance
goes to the other officers and men
of th?' fleet, according to the rules of _
division. The statement has been made
thut Dewey would receive about $150,000. ci
Vhi* Is a mistake. c
The seven Spanish ships that Sampcon's
fleet destroyed at Santiago carried
2.4S2 men, for whom a bounty of $

lollars, and the havoc caused by the
llabama, which took sixty-five vessels
nd property valued at 16,000.000. There
rere other cruisers?the Shenandoah,
he Siimter, th* Nashville, the Retrlbulon.
the Tallahassee, the Chlckamauga
-all of which did much damage to our
lerchant marine. All of these cruisers
rere more or less assisted and protected
y England, and the consequence was
hat the claims for damages against
hat country were bunched under the
Itle of the Alabama claims, and. as
verybody knows. England settled the
111 by paying $16,600,000.
During the war there were 1,129 prizes
rought in by our navy. Two hundred
nd ten of these vessels were fast
tenmers, nearly all carrying valuable
irgoes. There were also 355 vessels
urned, sunk, or driven on shore, or
therwlse destroyed. The value of all
tie prize vessels and their cargoes was
J0.000,000. They were condemned in
mounts aggregating $28,000,000.
The Santiago de Cuba, a side wheel
teamer, was the great prize taker. Unsslsted
by any other vessel, she capurod
thirteen prizes, aggregating in
alue $1,404,847, one-half of which was
warded to her. No other vessel any
rhere near approached this record.
Tho largest single share of prize
loncy fell to the lot of Lieutenant
tudd, a volunteer officer In command of
he steamer Magnolia. While on his
ray from New York to Join Farragut's
rjuadron in the gulf of Mexico he
cooped In the steamer Memphis, outrani
bound from one of the southern
orts, laden with cotton. Strange to
ay, the Memphis had been sighted by
y another American war vessel, whose
ommander failed to take her In. Had
e been aware of Ihe fact that she was
he richest prize of the war, he no doubt
rould have lost no time In overhauling
er. The expense of adjudication
mounted to 132,581, leaving a net reult
of $510,914.
The Magnolia also captured, without
sslatance, the steamer Matagorda, the
et proceeds from which amounted to
153,568. The net total of the two prizes
as $864,482. The law of prizes provides
hat when the prize vesel Is of superior
r equal froce to the vessel making the
npture, the entire proceeds shall be
;lven to the captors, but If the capured
vessel be of Inferior force, then
he captors shall receive one-half, the
overnment taking the other half.
Under the law tho Magnolia was
warded one-half the prize money,
mounting to $432,241, which was ready
Dr distribution in November. 1863. Lleuenant
Hudd's share from the Memphis
/as $38,318, and from the Matagorda
26,517, making a total of $61,835.

The day's stock market was dull to the
erge of stagnation, for practically all
f the standard stocks. There was no
pvere procure of liquidation but
either was there any demand to buy.
ivldcntly the elaborate manipulation of.
be bull clique, wh^ch, In view of the
ivorable conditions was expected to lnIte
a prolonged outside buying movejent,
which would carry prices from
ne hlglfc-r stage to another has come to
aught for the time being. The profesiona
have realized, but the new holders
re vulnerable to the machinations of
fie bear clique and arc loath to hold
jclr stocks In a declining market. There
i a constant dribble of realizing offcrigs
and a sagging of prlc<w. The maret
was redeemed from absolute dullose
to-day by movements In special
locks. Sugar and Manhattan were
larked up by the bears. People's Gas
meted on the failure of the agreement

as large absorption of both Northern

ig Lorain stocks; Buffalo, Rochester &
Ittsburgh ?tecks showed marked adanew.
Ho far ns the outlook In the
?otiey market In concerned there Is
rospeot of easier conditions. There was
o more gold lin ported to-day, but sterng
exchange was weak and London
money rate* are still below the New
York level, though they'gardened fur-'
ther to-day. The announced Intention
of the treasury department to anticipate
the October Interest payments on the 4
per cent bonds will release over $5,000,000
to the market. It Is expected also that
the distribution of the new government
3s will be much more rapid from this ,
time on and will be completed by September
15. This will serve to liquidate
a large amount of loans made by New t
York banks for financing subscriptions
to these bonds and will also make Che
bonds available as security for deposits 1
of government money In national banks
and for purposes of circulation. At
| the same time the action of the treasury
in anticipating interest payment is an
Indication of the rather pressing needs
of the money market Such a measure
has not been resorted to since the period .
of Secretary Windom's administration
when the old tariff law wa*j yielding a
surplus revenue.
The bond market shared in the dull- (
ness of stocks and prices yielded before '
the end of the day. Total sales 12^)90,000. (
Quotations for government bonds were

CHICAGO?Bad crop report* from
Nebraska strengthened corn to-day.
That aroused the sympathies of tradera 1
In wheat and was the principal reason 1
for an advance of %@>%c. At the close
Lt^ember corn showed an advance of
Oo?u nri* unchanced to %c '
higher. Pork advanced 7%c, iard 2ftc J
and ribs 507%&
A rather urgent demand from shorts i
Just at the opening, owing to continued ?
hot weather and lighter receipts than J
expected, advanced the price of corn J
%c over the close yesterday on the in- '
itial transactions. The condition of the 1
crop In Nebraska, however, appeared to be
the chief consideration with traders. <
Kansas corn was in as bad or worse j
condition than that in Nenraska, but j
the trade here had already* accepted the 3
damage reports from Kansas and did
some buying because of them during I
the last hhort bull campaign. It needed i
another big corn state to be heard t
from dlscouragingly as to its crop (
prospects to thoroughly stir up the 4
bulls. Nebraska's great disappoint- 3
ment as compared with her early pros- j
pects for a big crop came opportunely* <
and the chief Incentive to the buying. I
The market had no decided set-back ex- 1
c?pt immediately following the opening
bulge, and again after December had
risen %c above the previous day's closing
price, whence it had %c reaction.
December opened tf?%c u p at 31?
31%c; declined to 30'^@30%c, improved j
to 3lV*c, then reacted to 31?31%c at j
the close. r
Chicago received 193 cars of wheat, f
against 220 as expected. The weather j
was hot and considered unfavorable for t
corn and that article was strong at the r
commencement of the session. There i
was a general feeling of confidence ex- n
pressed on the curb that under present f
circumstances December wh#at was low {
enough. In consequence, the opening i
trades were at about %c improvement v
over closing prices of last night. No t
wheat had been tendered on September $
contracts before the opening. This fact g
helped In the formation of the slightly t
bullish tone with which trading started. j.
On the other hand Liverpool came
%c lower, while Minneapolis and Duluth
receipts were 672 cars, compnred
I with 3H the corresponding day a year |
ago. Corn scon began to drop a few t,
sixteenths of Its early advance, and c
thi? with 4hp iifoiin,. ?it Livernool and ,
heavy northwestern receipts hud to re- j
celve the consideration It wns entitled j
to ut the hands of the wheat specula- ;
tors. As a result the small advance ut ,
the start wns lost. Business was small (
and the heat wns too oppressive for
anyone to mix himself In the sweltering
crowd who did not have an order very
close to the market. During the %last
part of the session corn grew strong c
again and wheat responded sympathet- <
leal I y.
The aggregate of the day's primary c
western market receipts was 1,026.000
.bushels. aKalnst 914,000 bushels n year
ago. and It now appears as If the movement
for the present season having
at length caught up on that of the year
before was getting In shape to beat it.
The export clearances from Atlantic 1
and Gulf ports were equal In wheat and ;
flour to 700.000 bushels. September
opened up at 61c and after declining
to f.3ftc, advanced to G4>4tf?C4*<,c
at the close. December started
higher at 6r%0(K%c, sold down to 61%G? J
Gl^c, then firmed up to 62\4c and clos- 1
ed at 62%{?62Vic sellers. 1
Oats were easy early, but toward the *
close the strength displayed by corn '
was felt and the market closed steady. I
The principal part of the business 1
done was changing from September to v
December. Dcceinber opened unehang- ?'
ed at 19?fcc, up to 20c. weakened to 19\@ f
19%c and closed at 19~fc?2Cc. a
Provisions were depressed nt the start f
