Leaves Trinidad a,t Easy Pace of Ten Knots an Hour-—Governor of Trlnl* dad Gave Many Functions in Honor of Admiral Evans and His Officers While There. Port of Spain, Trinidad, Jan. !• —The American battleship fleet weighed anchor at 4 o'olock Tuesday nf ternoon and steamed for Rio Janeiro. Accompanying the fleet were the sup ply ships Culgoa and Glacier. Early m the morning the signal went up from Rear Admiral Evans' flagship, the Con necticut, to prepare for departure at S a. m., but owing to the delay in the coaling of the battleship Maine from the collier Fortuna, it was necespary to change the time of sailing. Long before the hour set a myriad of email era", chiefly launches and steam yachts, moved up and down along the lines of anchored warships, the merry parties aboard shouting farewell to the departing vessels. Thousands of residents climbed the surrounding hills to view the great ships as they moved outward on their journey of 3000 miles and more, while boatloads of excursionists went to the small islands in the gulf and others to the floating dock to catch the last glimpse of the ships that were so royally welcomed to this port almost a week ago. The fleet presented a magnificent appearance as It steamed out In four columns, with the supply ships trail ing, a distance of 400 yards separating one division from another. With the Conuecticut'in the lead, the battleships headed for the Booas and steamed ma jestically through the Grand Booa and thence along the northern coast of Trinidad. An average of 10 to 11 knots an hour will carry the fleet to the end of the second lap of the 14,000 mile journey in about 12 days, and it was announced by Admiral Evans before his departure that he expects to reach Rio Janeiro January 10. During the week of their visit here the American officers and men re ceived every courtesy at the hands of the residents. Sir Henry Moore Jack son, the governor of Trinidad, Colonel Swain and other high officials, gave dinners and garden parties in honor ef the eommander of the fleet and his officers, and there were scores of ex cursions and entertainments for the men, all of whom enjoyed more than the ordinary amount of shore leave. The newspapers here and the residents are unsparing in their praise of the ex emplary behavior of the men, and the papers compliment Admiral Evans in the warmest terms, expressing to him and bis men the best wishes of the peo ple of Trinidad and the hope that they will soon return.
