My men were kept prisoners In the hospital.
From my window I could see the aimy

British Consul Tireless
Mr. Ramsden, tho British consul at San
tiago, was tireless in hl3 efforts to secure
comfort for Hobson and his men. Lieuten
ant Hobson could not utiderstand his prom
ised exceptional promotion, but was over
joyed to learn the news that ht» bravery
bad been recognized by the people. He Is the
same simple, unaffected, enthusiastic Hob
son, more anxious to talk about the effect
of exploding shells and army movements
than about his brave deed. The men who
came with him received a ringing reception.
All are doing well.

WASHINGTON, July B.—ln a manner so
sim.le as to te almost perfunctory, the sen
ate at 2:06 oclock this afternoon adjourned
without day. It had been agreed upon when
the senate convened at noon that the house
resok..ion providing for the adjournment
uf congress at 2 oclock today should be
adopted and that an executive session
should be held to confirm the nominations
In the military and naval establishments.
No other business except of the merest
routine nature was to be transacted. The
arrangement was carried out to the letter.

Morgan of Alabama opposed t! - . pro
posed amendment, maintaining that It
would be far more desirable for congress to
take a recess until the first Monday In Sep
tember. He urged that the war with Spain
seemed to be drawing to a conclusion anil in
sisted that it was the duty of congress to I
mafn ir a»mon, as questions of tho gray ft
consequence might be precipitated at any
moment. He urged, too, that a treaty of
peace with Spain might soon demand the at
tention of the senate.
Allen of Nebraska spoke in a similar
strain and stated also that the calendar wal
crowded with bills of an important charac
ter. This statement brough from Gallinger
the assertion that there were but 116 general
and thirty odd pension bills on the calen
dar, a smaller number, he said, than had
been on the calendar at adjournment at any
time during the past twenty 5 cars.

Vice-President Hobart then, the hour of 2

Enthusiasm in the House
The House adjourned precisely at 2 o'clock
amid cheers followed by the singing of pa
triotic songs. Representative Bromwell of
Ohio proposed three cheers for President
McKinley, which were given twice over by
the Republicans. Then followed cheers
joined in by the entire house for Admiral
Dewey and General Joe Wheeler.
The whole house was one vast demonstra
tion and flags were passed about to every
member and were enthusiastically waved
while the members sang.
The Senate adjourned sine die at 2:06
The end of this session of congress In the
house was marked by, two notable incidents.
One was sensationally partisan, well-nigh
resulting In personal conflicts upon the floor
of the house; the other Was notably patriotic
and swept away all signs of the former.
In the formef Ray of New York, Repub
lican; Handy of Delaware, Democrat; Can
non of Illnola, Republican, ar.d Ball of
Texas, Democrat, werei the principal par
In tha latter all members joined, Irre
spective of party affiliations. After tho
rather stormy session of two hours, the
house,- when adjournment was announced,
joined In cheers for the pres'.dtnt and war
heroeß and th« singing of patilotlc songs,
making perhaps the most notable ending of
a session since the civil war.
The only measure of Importance passed
was a bill to reimburse states for expenses
Incurred Ir. aiding the organization of the
volunteer army.
Bay Baised the Bow
Handy of Delaware, Democrat, by moving
to strike from the Record a part oR the
speech which appeared as that of Ray of
New York, precipitated the dispute which,
brought on the closing! Incident of a sen
sational nature.
Handy declared the part in question was
never uttered on the floor of the house, and
read from reporter's notes to corroborate
his assertions.
Ray declared that he had uttered every
The house was becoming excited; the
packed galleries were Intensely Interested.
"Mr. Speaker," resumed Handy, "a ques
tion ot veracity has arisen here. If the gen- j
tieman from New York says he uttered the
words In question, I declare on my honor
he did not, and I hold here the reporter's
notes, which show that he did not, and I
rely upon the memory of members to sub
stantiate what I say."
"Vote, vote." came from members all
over the house, who were In haste to have
tha Ray-Handy Incident closed.
A vote was taken. The house declined to
strike out the speech. A division 1 was called
for and the negative vote prevailed.
Cannon was standing just across the cen
ter aisle, with flushed face and eyes fixed
upon the minwity, growing apparently* in
"H called for tollers " said Handy, and with
that the Veteran member of Illinois
stepped into the aisle.
Cannon Comes to the Front
"You are deliberately obstructing* public
business in which the w hole country Is in
terested —"
The rest of his remark* were lost In the
jeering of the minority, calls for the regu
lar order and the resulting confusion as
Cannon charged up the aisle, pouring out a
flood of vigorous denunciation.
He) had reached a point opposite Ball of
Texas, Democrat. Cannon had called for
the yeas and nays, saying it was manifest
the Democrat-; would call for them. Can
non had repeated his charge of obstruction,
when Ball, addressing the Republican side,
as It subsequently developed, declared "the
record Is. false and you knew It was false
when you voted against correcting It."
The Lie Passed

Cannon and thrust him aside, and. when
Ball asked Cannon "to come outside" and
the latter was moving to comply. Lewis of
Washington, Democrat, took charge of the
Illinois member and restrained him. Mean
while the speaker, had been pounding hard,
and the sergeant at arms, Mr. Russell, had
seized the big silver mace and was moving
among the members where the greatest dis.
order prevailed. Order was resldred slowly
and the roll call proceeded.
Cannon Explains
The roll jell upon Handy's motion to
strike out resulted' Yeas 50, nays 106. Later
m the session Cannon explained that Ball
had addressed his remarks, not to him per
sonally, and therefore he desired to with
draw his offensive statement.
The speaker named Hendersm, Hopkins
of Illinois and Richardson of Tennessee is
a committee to wait upon the president,
in company with a senate committee, and
announce the readiness of congress to ad
"Mr. Speaker," said Henderson, after
the return and reporting of the committee;
had discharged Its duties, "the president
directs the committee to say ha has no
further communications to make to the
house, and says he desires to congratulate
th's congress upon Its patriotic and faith
ful work."
The report was applauded.
Reed Adjourns the House
The remainder of the session passed
without Incident. At 2 o'clock, when
Speaker Reed announced "this second ses
sion of this congress is adjotirned without
dey," a great cheer arosu, and then began
a scene which, similar to the usual closing
scenes of sessions, far surpassed In its en
thusiasm and manifest good feeling any
similar episode In the memory of the oldest
member of the house. The occupants of
tho pack'd galleries who had risen to go.
paused as they heard several of the mem
bers beginning "America."
Other members hurriedly crowded around
the speaker's stand and joined the othi'!
singers, unlil within a short time it seemed
all the members present were aiding In
swelling the volume of song. Presently
a voice here and there in the galleries jolncl
In. and it was not long until members and
spectators were all singing the patriotic
The 1 scene was a marked transition from
the many partisan demonstrations which
had been witnessed such a short time be
fore. Democrats and Republicans were
now singing in accord the national anthem.
When the song ceased, some member pro
posed three cheers for the nation's presi
dent, and the rnnr of sound that followed
came from a united house.
"The north, the south, east and west,
a united country," was proposed, and then
in turn came the heroes of the war. Dewey,
Schley, Hobson, Sampson and Anally for
mer Representative General Joseph Wheel
er, who is clinging, though 111, to his com
mand In front of Santiago, was named,
and the hall resounded with cheers of
thrilling strength. Then the singing pro
ceeded. Meantime, Sergeant-at-Arms
Russell had brought in 200 small American
flags, and every member was now waving
Waved the Flag
"Tha Star Spangled Banner" was sung
while flags waved and the galleries cheered.
Later followed "Yankee Doodle" and
"Dixie," the latter perhaps for the first
time in the house by members.
Cheers for the speaker were given, and
then the members began leaving, saying
farewell to colleagues.
"Home, Sweet Home" and "Auld Lang
Syne" supplanted the patriotic airs and
Impressed more strongly upon the hearers
that another session was ended.
Clerk Meadowell, when the singing
ceased, mounted the clerk's stand and an
nounced that Mr. Allen of Mississippi had
opened a recruiting office in the wuys and
means committee room, and a few minutes
later Mr. Allen, popularly known as "Pri
vate John," arose and said:
"The congressional rough riders will re

Reinforcements to Dewey
CHICAGO, July B.—A special cable to the
Chicago Record from Its correspondent.
John T. McCutcheon. with Admiral Dewey's
fleet, Manila Bay, July 4, via Hong Kong,
The American troops under General An
derson which have reached the Philippines
are now comfortably quartered in the Span
ish military barracks at Cavite and are
busy preparing for active Bervice against
the Spanish. No attack on Manila Is prob
able before the arrival of the second de
tachment of troops under General Green,
which is expected soon. The present force
of soldiers and marines Is considered insuf
ficient to protect life and property in Ma
nila in the event of the capitulation of that
city. The soldiers, however, are all eager
to begin the fighting.
Captain General Augusti has desired to
surrender Manila for some time, and for
that reason the Spanish Consul, who is
conducting the defense, transferred the
military leadership from him to the senior
colonel of artillery.
The Insurgents control the city water
works, and have cut off the supply from that
source, but as till* is the rainy season, and
there is a cloud burst every day, the Span
iards do not suffer from lack of water. A
serious matter for them at present is that
the insurgents have captured San Juan del
Mbnte, a few miles to the rear of the city,
which had been lltted up with old cannon
and a supply of ammunition and provisions
to serve as the last stronghold of the Span
ish government after the forces should be
driven out of Manila by the bombardment
of the American warships.
Governor Marina, whom Captain Glass
brought as a prisoner Guahan, the seat of
.Spanish government in the Ladrone Islands,
declines to accept parole from the Ameri
cans, preferring to remain v prisoner at
Cavite rather than run the risk of being
shot in Manila by his countrymen for sur
rendering when menaced by the guns of
the Charleston.
Today the warships In the hfy are dressed
in honor of the Fourth of July. The troops
hold a military review off Cavite. The
health of the American forces continues
Waiting MerriSt's Arrival
HONG KONG, July B.—A dispatch from
Manila under date ef July 4 says that Ad
miral Dewey will remain Inactive until
General Merritt arrives. The rebels are
practically doing nothing, but the Spaniards
are strengthening their position, destroying
huts and woods and construe ting entrench
ments. The authorities have enacted a pen
alty of $1000 against anybody who shall
raise the prices of provisions. The Span
lards assert that, despite the loss of the
water works, there will be no famine during
the rainy season. They are confident that
an ample force from Cadiz will arrive soon
ar.d annihilate the Americans and they still
hope to conciliate the natives. In the mean
time they dec lare that they will endure pa
tiently whatever comes and resist to the

Second Day of the Convention at
NASHVILLE. Term., July B.—Many en
thusiastic meetings marked the second day
of the Christian Endeavor convention and
all were well attended. Beginning with the
morning praise meetings, followed by th;!
numerous denominational conferences in
the different churche3, the morning was
busily spet. In the afternoon two great
services were held at Hall Williston and
the auditorium, Centennial park. Tonight
equally as well attended meetings weiv
held in the same hulls, and strong and
eloquent addresses delivered. The reports
of William Shaw, treasurer made to the
board of trustees, were given out today.

At the auditorium tonight Commander

The Situation There as an Englishman
Sees It
LONDON, July B.—The officials of the
Spanish embassy here say they have no
knowledge of any peace negotiations being
on foot at present.

ing that the Americans are unable to cap
ture Santiago de Cuba and that the perpetual
slay "has broken the men's nerves and con
stitutions, bringing to the verge of disaster,"
unless reinforced, Is published conspicu
ously here and has also been telegraphed to
The Times today publishes a long letter
from one of Its correspondents, E. W.
Knight, dated from Havana on June 8, in
whichl tho writer gives details of his diffi
culty in landing in Cuba, experiences in
prison and release.
In regard to condition! of affairs In Ha
vana, Mr. Knight says he found the city In
a very different condition than that de
scribed in the American press, and that the
town is perfectly quiet.
Continuing, he says there are no signs of
popular excitement and no Intimation of a
general massacre of foreigners which has
been foretold.
The correspondent also says there are no
signs of famine In Havana, though he ad
mits It Is true that provisions are very dear
and that there Is distress among the poor,
who are without work owing to the block
ade. But he adds that the distress is no
greater than that sometimes experienced in
London. Of the present attitude of the
population, civil and military, the corres
pondent says he can hardly speak too highly,
adding: "There Is no excitement and no
fear, but a dignified calm resolve to defend
the country bravely. All here eagerly de
sire an American force to land In Cuba In
order to try conclusions in a fair fight with
Spanish troops. The latter, I think, will
give a good account of themselves when the
time comes."
New Rules Issued by the Commission
er of Internal Revenue
WASHINGTON, July B.—The Commis
sioner of Internal Revenue has issued the
following circular to all collectors regard
ing the sale of Internal revenue stamps:
"In view of the large number of stamps
that have been placed in the hands of col
lectors, the continued complaints of Insuffi
cient supply received from taxpayers In
dicate that such stamps are bought up for
speculation purposes in some instances and
in others that there has been a super
abundance of precaution to secure an am
ple supply.
"Collectors should exercise great care in
selling adhesive stamps to make sure that
a fair distribution of the stamps needed by
the taxpayers Is not prevented by either
cause above indicated.
"In no case should the purchasers be per
mitted to take more than a week's sup
ply, and where the purchaser Is located
near the collector's office, only a supply suf
ficient for two or three days should be sold.
"Complaints reach this office that In
some instances collectors and deputies
have refused to sell less than an entire
sheet of adhesive stumps to a purchaser.
This practice must be discontinued, as tax
paying purchasers must be supplied with
what they may need.
"Inquiries are received in regard to agen
cies for the sale of these stamps by post
masters, banks, etc. In all such cases,
they have been referred to the collectors of
their respective districts, who should ad
vise them that they can procure the stamps
at a discount of 1 per C*n4 of the face value
on each purchase amounting to $100 or
'"The only arrangements that will bo
made for the sale of adhesive stamps arc
those above indicated, namely, the sale In
quantities ot $100 worth or more to parties
willing to take them on tho terms fixed
by law for resale to taxpayers and sale
directly to taxpayers by the several col
lectors and their stamp deputies."
The Latter Wins the Second Battle.
Will Be Matched Again
NEW YORK, July B.—Peter Matter de
feated Joe. Goddard tonight in eight rounds
at the Lenox Athletic club. The fight had
beer, scheduled for twenty-five rounds with
five-ounce gloves. Goddard had defeated
Matter on two previous occasions and was
the favorite among the sporting element
previous to the fight.
Goddard administered a lot of bard pun
ishment to his adversary, but received a
terrible pounding while he was doing so.
Goddard was out a couple of times, but the
bell saved him, and when he quit towards
the end of the eighth round he was scarcely
able to stand on his feet. At the same time,
the fast work which both had gone through
from tho beginning had told on Maher. and
he was unable to land a blow heavy enough
to finish the Australian.
In the first round ,in a lively exchange,
Maher hooked his right to the head and put
Joe to the floor. Goddard's nose was bleed
ing when the gong sounded.
In the second Goddard's defense was bad
and Maher got at him frequently, but did
no great damage. After some rough In
fighting In the third Goddard went down
again from a left swing on the face. When
ho got up Maher sent him down again.
At the close of the fourth Goddard got In
a couple of lefts on the head that staggered
Round five saw Goddard lying on the floor
and he staid down nine seconds. Maher
repeated the performance when Joe got
on his feet and the latter again took nine
seconds' rest before rising.
The next two rounds were full of hard
hitting on both sides, but In the eighth
Maher brought his man to his knees. The
final round started lively, Goddard trying
hard to reach Maher effectively, but Peter
landed ropeatedly on head and face.
Goddard was now unable to defend him
self and held his head down with his arms
crossed in front of his face.
Maher went at him but could not land a
knockout blow. Goddard backed away and
stretched out his hands, saying as he did
so, "This is more than nature can stand,"
as he shook Maher's hand.
-The referee then awarded the fight to
Maher. Time of round, two minutes and
nfty-flve seconds.

The Destruction of the Alfonso XIII
Now Certain
KEY WEST, Fla., July 8, 9 a.m.—A four
masted Spanish steamer of about six thous- 1
and tons with two funnels has run aground
at Marlel, west of Havana, after being
chased by the gunboats Hawk. Castlne and
Prairie. The intelligence was brought here
this morning by several auxiliary warships
returning from the north coast blockade.
At the time they left the lines the identity
of the wrecked Spaniard had not been es
tablished. By many, however, it is thought
she is the Alfonso XIII. The steamer was
first sighted at the western end of the Ha
vana blockade, about six miles from Morro
Castle, heading for Havana. The Hawk
Immediately gave chase and was soon
joined by two other gunboats. The trio
opened a hot fire on the enemy, who, unable
to escape and helpless, was forced ashore.
The affair occurred a day or two ago, but
none of the ships who participated In it have
arrived here and the boats which brought
the news were not close enough to learn
fuller details.
