Caimanera, Monday, via Mole St, Nicholas, Hayti, Tuesday, June 14. Another battle has been fought here. This time the sea as well as the land forces were engaged. It was ode of the fiercest battles of the war, and in it were engaged 900 marines brought here on the Panther, the cruiser Marblebead, the battleship Texas, the collier Aberenda, and the Journal's dispatch boat Simpson. Camp McCalla and the crest of the hill where the marines were entrench ed were attacked by overwhelming Spanish forces. Unlike the first fight this was not a surprise in any sense. The men were expecting it, or rather were ready for anything that came along, and so were not at much disad vantage except as to numbers. ' The launches, of the Texas . and Marblehead, with rapid fire guns in their bows, did heroic work in shelling the enemy along the coast and in the BAY OP GUANTANAMO. bushes that grow olear down to the water's edge, and the big guns of the Marblebead and Texas ripped the un der growth and the trees of the forest into shreds as they tore through the hid log places of the Spanish and sent the enemy flying to places of safety. The dispatch boat Simpson was made the speolal target by the Spanish sharp shooters, and a perfect ball of Mauser bullets fell upon her decks. pierced her wood work, and dimpled the bay. The fire directed at her finally be came so hot that Captain Philip brought his battle ship Texas into ac tion and also signalled Lieutenant Commander Bufford of the collier Abarenda to use his guns on the beach. This wss done, and the sharp shooters' fire was silenced. New York, June 14. A dispatch received this afternoon from Mole St. Nicholas says that eighty Spaniards and sixteen Americans were killed in yesterday's battle. The story lacks confirmation. There are many rumors afloat of losses much greater on both sides. COMMUTED. Train Wrecker Will Save His Neck. San Francisco, June 14. Governor Budd, it is announced, will commute Salter D. Worden'a death sentence to life imprisonment. Worden is the man who during the great railroad strike of 1894 helped to wreck a South ern Pacific train near . Sacramento, killing the engineer and three sol diers. The case became one of national prominence, through the efforts of the big labor organizations to save Worden and through the fact that Grover Cleveland, who was then president, wrote a personal letter to Governor Budd asking him to save Worden'a neck.

At noon on Monday one of the batteries in San Diego, and Morro Castle, opened a ter ritic fire upon the American blockad ing fleet off Havana. The firing was begun without reason, as dj ships were within easy range. The govern ment report says that over 200 shots were fired. It is believed that Blanco invited an attack by opening fire, as it is thought that his resources are fast dwindling and he wants to fight while he is able. This view was shared by Commodore Watson, who would not permit his ships to answer. Not a vessel was touched, and the nearest shot exploded 100 yards from any ship. DEWEY AT MANILA Handled His Ships Skilfully, While the Spaniards Did Not Use What They Had. London, June 14.

On the other hand the American ships were skilf ul- fully handled. It was not Admiral Dewey 's fault that the battle wa comparatively without glory.. He showed a correct appreciation of he people he had to deal withby declining to be frightened by tales of submarine mines. CABINET MEETING.

Buenos Ayres, June 14 Popular feeling in Argentine concerning the war . between Spain and the United States Is running high and remarkable public demonstrations of sympathy are dally taking place. Tbe enthusiasm displayed among the Spanish communi ty in this city is on a par with the excitement in Spain, and meetings are held nightly at the Spanish club for the management of tbe funds collected to send to Spain. News from ths provinces, also, in dicates how Spaniards throughout tha country are dominated by the same en thusiasm for helping tbe mother conn try. At a meeting in Rosario the en thusiasm of Spanish population is said to have been indescribable, children, beggars and all sorts of people offering money, jewelry and other valuables These articles were sold over and over again; one watch wbieh brought SHOO was resold again and again, each time for a considerable amount. A boat described as of little value waa sold repeatedly until it finally brought in $10,000. The total amount collected at tbe meeting was estimated at $100,- 000, and over 1,000 men enlisted as volunteers. - A number of the natives, however, are outspoken in their desire for tha success of the United States and seri ous clashes between the two elements are of frequent occurrence In tbe streets of this city, The resident En glish colony is1 also decidedly fav-. orab'e to the cause of America, while the German subjects.lean toward the side of Spain. The English sentiment in Buenos Ayres is well expressed in a letter written by a prominent mer chant and published in the Standard, which is the leading paper published in the English language in Argentine. In calling attention to the prevalent Spanish sympathy in the country, the writer says: In ; perusing the different news papers of this country, .what particu larly strikee me is the seemingly sympathetic feeling displayed for Spain in tbe present war by the ent.re South American countries. Eveiy one of the Soufh American republics owes its independence from Spain to the material assistance and moral sup port of the United 8tates. Tbe true feeling of the people should be . with the cause of liberty. The Cuban struggle is identical with that in which Argentine waa engaged la 1810-16, and tbe attitude of tbe United States today is the same as that of Ar gentine when San Martin crossed the Andes to help tbe Chileans to throw off the yoke of Spanish oppression and cruelty. "Yet now when Cuba is in the same position as that in which they found themselves in the first decades of the present century, so far from sympathiz ing with Cuba, they are almost un animously .in favor of Spain. Some are even going further and are raising fuods by popular subscription for pur chasing a warship to present to tbe mother country. However, this anti American feeling is a matter of slight consequence so far as concerns tbe United States, and is more than offset by tbe hot sentiment in their favor which prevails among the English speaking population and also among the many Cubans who have found a re fuge here."
