Tl.e Btory of tho lnmlltig of the Amerlcan
army near Santiago la told on pago two of
thiB iBsue.
Admlral Cervera telegraphed to Madrid
tho Burprlslng lnforuiatlon that tho Amerl
cans had offeoted a laudlng at a place elgh
teen inilerf east of Sautiago, that he Im
medlately mustered tho crows of hls squad
rou aud proceedod to the sceno, and that
after a aharp tlght ho succeeded lu drlvlng
the Amerlcana off. No menlion of casual
tlea on elther aido la made. The humor of
tho admlral's statement contrlbuted to the
goiety of tho marinoa.
Immedlately after landlng the Amerlcana
began thelr march toward Santiago. The
head of tho advanclng column camped at
Demajayabo Wednosday nlght, June 22,
and on Thursday advanced to Juragna
whlch the enemy hastlly ovacuated. By
nieht a lunctiou had beon effected between
the maln dlvlsions of the invaders on hlgh
cround about ten niiles from the guna of
Morro castle. Beyond Juragua, tho Span.
iarda suddenly appeared In force, oxpect
ing to surprise the Amerlcan advanoo. They
were, however, dlscoverod by a recon
noltering party composed of AmerlcanB and
Cubans who opened flre as they fell back
toward tho head of the column, and tho
Spanlarda themselves fell back. Two Cu
bans were kllled. On Friday mornlng
KooseveltB rougu riders, who had asked
that they be sent to the front at once, were
ambuahed by the Spaniards, sixteen of thelr
number kllled and as many more wounded.
Among tho kllled wero Captaln Capron,
and Sergeant Hamllton Fish of the famous
New York family that f urnished a secretary
of State in Qen. Grant's cabinot. The
young man was an athleto and was one of
many of the gilded youth of Now York who
entered Itoosevelt's rogiment. Young Flsh
was in tho fore front of the fight, brave and
daring. Among the wounded was Edward
Marshall, corrospoudent of the Now York
The warshipB have kept all the coaat on
oitherside of Santiago under their guna,
and the fortlflcationa and the country
around the advanclng colnmns of the
Amerlcana are under flre. There is con
atant flghtlng on the land, and day by day
the gripof the invaders istightening around
the clty and harbor that are the objects of
their operatlons.
It la believed that the firat stand ln force
will be encountered at the intrenchmenta
immedlately east of the clty, as the Unlted
Statea scouts have protty thoroughly ox
plored the territory between the head of
the column and the Spanlsh outpoatB, and
they report that theae intrenchmenta are
heavily manned, but that there la no con
aiderable body of troopa east of them.
The InsurgentB under Qeua. Qarcia and
Castillo are in constant touch wlth the
maln body of the attacking army, and are
provlng a source of greatest atrength.
Further partlculars of tho fight on Friday
leave no doubt that the "rough riders,"
who were flghtlng dlsmounted, walked lnto
an ambush. The spot had beenaelected by
the Spaniards and Booaevelt's men were
taken at a dlsadvantage. The aeverlty of
their lossea, and of the other troopa wlth
them, la attrlbuted in part to the ntter con
tempt they showed for their Spanlsh foea.
The lesaon will not daunt thelr courage in
the leaat but will lead the Amerlcana to a
more prudent regard for their safety. The
gallantry of the troopers, under flre for the
firat time, la apoken of wlth higheat pralao
by offlcera and men throughout the army
and the cool bravory of Col. Wood and
Lleut. Col. Itoosevelt, who took their men
out of a bad fix wlth the glory of victory,
has madethem heroea.
When the nature of tho reslatance waa
understood, the men were ordered to de
ploy and flre npon the concealed enemy
from a lylng posltion, tlll relnforcemonts
could come up. Aa tho Mauaer bulletn
rlpped up the ground about them, the men
swore ln angry iinpatlence. They wanted
Xo be up and at the Spaniarda cloae ln.
"Don't Bwoar or you'll catch no fish," waa
Col. Wood's cool advice as he held the men
in cbeck and dlrected the flre. When belp
camo the AmerlcanB made a hurrlcano daah
for the chaparral, and the Spaniards were
eoon acnrrying through the thicket. The
auxiliary cmlsers sent a few rounds of aholl
after the retreatlng enemy, but the range
waa too long and little damage waa done.
When the firlng waa over the wounded
were promptly sent to the rear. There waa
deep sorrow and anger aa the extent of the
lossea began to be learnod.
The troopa are havlng the greatest dlffl-
culty ln tranaportlng the slege guns and
other hoavy war materlal to the front. It
waa known ln advance that the conntry waa
rugged and mountalnous, and covered wlth
a tangle of troploal nndergrowtb, but
revelatlon awalted them aa to the kind of
roada aouthoaatern Caba affords. The maln
road from Balqulrl to Santiago la aa lmpas-
Bable to artlllery ln lta present condltlon as
a Malno logglng road ln aummer tlme, Tt
la little moro than a footpatb, and is over
grown wlth vlnei and ahruba and brlstlea
wlth jagged rocka. The englneera are work
lng llke beavora to put lt ln ahape for the
artlllery aud aupply tralna, but ln the ter
riblo heat the taak la a hard one.
Bren the infantry find the footlng a tax
on thelr endurance, and many ot them
havo beon Bont to the tcar, havlng beon
proBtratcd by tho heat and oxortlon. In

Four thousand mon, comprlsing tho thlrd

Tho Spanlsh fleet roportod at the north
ond of the Suez Caual, supposedto be lieau
ed for Mantla, conststa of tho battloshlp
Polayo and crulser Emperor Oharles V,
each of somo 9,000 tons dlsplacement, the
gun boatB Osado, Audaz, FroBerplna, and
oleht tranaporta conTeylng 4.000 troops. It
la reported from Washington that the Unlted
States will checkmate tlils movo by sendlng
a lleet to attack Spaln at home, and
thua compol her to recall the Uoot that ap-
poara to be destlnod to operate agalnat
Admlral Dewey. The dlstance from Suez,
at the north ond of the canal, to Manlla is
about the samo aa from San Franclaco.
Before the Spanlsh could roach .the Fhlllp
pines, all the three expeditions dlspatched
thlther from San Francisco will have ar
rlved and Dewey could be relnforced by
the Charlestown, tho Monterey and the
Monadnock, a double turreted monltor
whlch salled on Thuraday June 23, and
whtch la rated at 14.5 knots an hour. The
Monterey salled June 7. A large forco of
troops, and arma and ammunltion for evory
emergency, barrlng dlsastors to the expedl-
tions will roach Dewey before the Spanlsh
lleet appears off tho entranco of Manlla bay,
The Amerlcan forces, lt is confldently
believed, will be able not only to defend
thelr posltion auccesafully, but to attack
the Spanlsh fleet If opportunity presents.
But the Spanlsh lleet has not gone yot; and
if it undertakes to go the dlfficultles of coal-
ing in the neutral ports whlch are all Brit-
iah, and the dangera that impend, may aave
Admiral Dewoy thetrouble of deatroylng it.
