Guantanamo Bay, June 16. American marines and Cubuns completely routed a force of 400 Spaniards. One American was slightly wounded. The Spaniards lost about forty killed. Washington, June 16. Admiral Samp son reports all satisfactory at Guanta namo and Cubans are co-cptratlng with the Americans. Wafhlnpton. Jun 16. "Guantanamo" Is a name pronourccd with mingled pride and sorrow at the navy depart ment. Every official is keyed up to the hlRhept pitch of anxiety, dreading any minute that the handful of Ameri can marines holding the first point of conquest on Cuban sell has been over whelmed by the guerrilla forces that be siege them day and night. The navy department has received nothing e fa cial, but Is expecting news any minute livery hour intervening between the present and the time the Amrrio-jn troops will arrive to reinforce the iv.a rines will be tilled with anxiety. To Iteinforee the -Murine. Orders will probably be Issued to Ad miral Sampson, unles he ac ts poon on his own volition, to land Lii. Jaokefs to reinforce the marines. Tlie:c ap pears to be no doubt here that the force of Spaniards creeping In the high grass and trees around the American post at Guantanamo and haassslng Its defend er's has been heavily reinforced. The effect of a rout of the marines from the post they have gained Is dreaded. It would be heralded abroad, It Is said, as a setback for the American forces, and Its Impression on the other side of the world might be that American sol diers had suffered the first defeat of the war and little allowance would be made for the uneven battle now being waged by the little band of Spartan heroes. Dread of a Mn.4u re. But the effect of a rout on the mind of Europe Is a passing consideration compared with the dread of a massacre. "The chivalry of Cervera of Santiago fame toward the crew of the Merrlmac was a pretense," said a navy officer. "Guantanamo revealed the real kind of warfare waged by the enemy when the bodies of American marines were mutilated." This outrage is deeply re sented and a reptiypn oj It will In vite fierce reprisal, If, lndee3, it does not result In a grave representation to the powers Qf Europe concerning the barbarous violation of the rules of civ ilized warfare by Spain. KILLKI MANY SPANIARDS., " Result of the Second Fight in Cuba at Guantanamo. Mole St. Nicholas, June 16. The sec ond assault of the Spanish guerrillas which caused Lleuteant Colonel Hunt ington to strike camp Sunday and move his headquarters to the foot of the hill near his original landing place on Fish erman's point, was continued at dusk Sunday night and prosecuted with de termination Ml night. The firing was all but incessant from sunset on Sun day to daylight on Monday. Seven of the American force were wounded and two killed. Those killed were: Ser geant Major Henry Goode, shot through the right breast; Private Tauman, wounded and fell off the cliff. Instantly killed by the fall. There are dead Spaniards scattered through the brush. Four bodies were found In one place. Many more have been seen to fall. It Is certain that the Spanish loss Is much heavier than ths American. Seven Americans were wounded by the Spanish fire during the night. Thl Is in addition to these hurt by the stones sent flying by bullets or shells, whose wounds are not disabling. The wounded are: Corporal B. Hagg ney, Company B, shot In the foot; Pri vate M. Costello, Company B, ear In Jured; Private J. T. Roxbury, Company D, we mded in the arm; Private Martin, Company D, wounded In the thigh; Private S. Dalton, Company D, wound ed In the leg; Trlvate I). Burke, shot In the arm; Private T. Wallace, Com pany D, knee Injured. Seventeen Spaniards and one lieuten ant w ho wen found dead by the Cubans when morning broke told part of the tale of the night. No systematic search of the woods and brush has been made. It Is probable that there are many more bodies about. The circling vul tures near the head of the lagoon are a grewsome suggestion. REJOICING AT CIIICKAMAVGA. Fifteen Regiment Soon to Leave There for Tain pa, Fla. Chlckamauga Park, June 16. The re port that fifteen regiments are to leave Camp Thomas for Tampa during the next few days Is the main suMect of Interest In the camp, and It Is being eagerly discussed by both officers and men. It Is Impossible to confirm the report, as the army officials refuse to discuss It, but nearly every man In camp now believes it. When the new of a move gained circulation there was general rejoicing among the soldiers. The greater portion of them have been very anxious to go to the front, and now that there-Is a fair prospect of a large number of regiments leaving, the boys are all anxious to know who will be Included In the order.

Fourth, Fifth, Ninth and Sixteenth Pennsylvania, Fourth Ohio, and Eighth Massachusetts w!'.! be among the first to be ordered to the front. In addition to the regiments there are many others which, lack only a small amount of equipment and which could be equipped for operation without much trouble. The rains, which have fallen since Sun day, have added materially to the com fort of army life and afforded an ex cellent opportunity for active work. Every regiment Is drilling and maneuv ering and the field Is covered with them. The First Mississippi is being supplied with Springfield rifles. Two troops of Kentucky cavalry have secured their horses. Major Bradley of the Second Wisconsin took charge of the First di vision. First corps hospital, succeeding Br. Wakenian. There are a number of sick In this hospital, but none of the cases are very serious. Regime titii I lUiugl'p. Washington, June 16. Recruits are pouring Into camp Alger to fill the regi ments to their full strength. The work of recruiting has been much easier than was expected. Those who arrived Tuesday Included ninety men for the Sixty-fifth New York, sixty men for the Seventh and Eighth Ohio and a number for the Third Virginia.

Nightingale, Chicago. In all general declarations the plat- -form Is a typical Republican document. On a new question growing out of the A-ar, however, It takes ground boldly and emphatically as follows: . "Resolved, That the United States should hold all of the possessions it has conquered and may conquer from Spain, until the Spanish government has agreed to give security that it will pay the United States Indemnity for what ever cost might have been avoided had Spain been a humane government, and also that the United States hold such possessions In the conquered territory as shall be advantageous to its interest in times of war and peace. That the navy of the United States should be so increased and strengthened as to com mand the respect of the world and to meet the emergencies of this great na tion." Hero Is the resolution that was put In the Republican state platform and which refers to the Allen law and gas consolidation bills: "The Republican party will uphold the Interests of the people, and to that end, if any legisla tive enactment is injurious to any part of the people or proves objectionaDie, the Republican legislature can be de pended upon to correct the same In the interest of the people."
