Acting upon the unanimous recom mendation of the naval board of awards, Secretary Long has approved the designs for the two medals pro vided for by congress to commemor ate the achievements of the United States navy in the campaign in the West Indies during the Spanish-Am erican war. Of these two medals the first is known as the battle medal and the second as the meritorious ser vice medal. In its report to Secretary Long the board of awards points out that this battle medal is not for ser vices rendered in any one engagement but is intended for all the men who participated in the West Indian campaign. The board states that it has placed Sampson's head upon the medal be cause he was the commander in chief of the West Indian squadron, as Dewey's was placed on the Manila medal. The medal will not be known as the Santiago medal, as it will bear upon the reverse the name, the rank and ship of the initial battle in which the recipient participated. The ad ditional battles will be represented by separate bars above the suspend ing ribbon of red, white and blue, one bar for each battle. The meritorious service medal is for those who have enjoyed disting uished service otherwise than in bat tle. It will go to such men as Hobson, Lieut. Ward, Victor Blue, Lieut Buck and a very few others. The design is a five pointed star in open work and encircled by a laurel wreath and supported by a bar, the whole backed by red, white and blue ribbons. A foulde anchor fills the centre of the star. The name of the recipient will be engraved on the back. The board has decided and the sec retary of the navy has approved the decision, and the sailors and marines who were engaged in blockade duty shall have the medal (in their case a meritorious service medal) as well as the men who actually participated in the fighting. Everybody who was in the West Indian campaign at all, as either blockader or fighter, will get a medal of one kind or another.
