ANDERSON, Ross, Iowa The following is a clipping from a recent issue of the Los Angeles (Cali fornia) Herald, and is a description of Dewey's Manila victory by John P. Brotherton, former shipmate of Joshua Jordan, of near Boss. Mr. Brotherton was hereon a visit about two years ago aud formed many pleasant ac quaintances, who will pe pleased to hear of his safe return, but regret to learn of the loss of his eye-sight: It is a hurrying hungry crowd that usually alights at the Arcade depot in tbe rooming from the 7 30 Sao Francisco train. Every man is intent on his own breakfast and his own busi ness and has but little hoed for his neighbor. So it is not probable that many of the passen gers paid much attention to a pioasant-faced, elderly looking man, drossed in the uniform of a petty officer of the United States navy, as, with the uncertain step of one whose eyesight is dim, he slowly wont down tho car stops and out of the depot enclosure Friday morning. His name is John P. Brotherton and ho is just home from Manila where ho took part in the great estof our country's naval battles on that memor able Sunday morning, tho first day of last May. Mr. Brotherton is an oiler, which rank ho ob tained by twenty-six years of faithful service in tho navy. Ho arrived at Maro Island on the re ceiving ship Independence a few days ago, and was there granted an honorable discharge from the service on account of his rapidly failing vision. The home for his remaining days is a neat little cottage of his own in Univorsity, where ho expocts to ljvo with his brother and tho latter's family. Mr. Brotherton is a very in teresting man to talk with, hav ing all of tho easy, natural fluen cy common to men of tho sea. Ho received a Herald reporter cor dially and proceeded to tell his story which is here given as near lyas possible in his own language: Departure for the Orient I joined tho gunboat Concord, Capt. J. P. Walker, at Maro Island, on the 4th of last Jan uary," said Mr. Brotherton. Ou the Ml], wo left for Honolulu, where wo stopped three days to take on coal. From there wo sailed for Yo kohama where we joined the flagship Olympia and delivered her some ammunition. Then we went over to Chemulpo, Coreo, and after spend ing a night there set out for Hong Kong. We reached there about February 22d and found the Raloigh and Petrel waiting for us. I did not get on shore during the time wo wero at Hong Kong, but I had no trouble find ing out that the feeling among tlie English there was very warm toward us, while the Frenchmen and Spaniards had a good deal of sympathy for Spain. "Of course we sailors did a lot of guessing and talking about a war with Spain, but we really knew nothing about it until April 15th, when we got orders to paint the ships war color. A few days later, after war had been declared, we received orders from the British government to get out. We did so and went to Mirs Bay, a Chinese harbor seven or eight miles from Hong Kong. Here we waited until Consul Wildman came up from Manila. He was taken on board the Baltimore. Tbe Baltimore and the Boston had joined us a few days before we left Hong Kong. Then when all was ready Hong Kong we started out for the Philip- to pines. The trip took us about four days, and on Saturday after- Manilla noon, April 30th, the Concord and Boston ran ahead of the rest of the fleet into Subig bay in the island of Luzon, about seventy miles north of Manila. Subig bay resembles the bay of Manila in having a narrow entrance and good depth of water, although it is not so large. All the way down from Mirs bay we had been throwing overboard things which were only in the way and could bo of no service in battle, and by the time we reached Manila bay wo were in fighting trim. Tbe ships were in fine condition from top to bottom and the boys wanted nothing but to get at tho Spaniards. About midnight we passed Corregidor Island lying in the entrance to tho bay. Not alight was to be seen, and though there were batteries on the island several hundred feet above the water, and water batteries, too, wo didn't hear a sound from any of them. But out in the channel botween Corregidor Island and El Fraile island there was a spy in a little tug-boat waiting for us, and when he saw a few sparks fly from tbe Boston's funnel he sent up two or three rockets. "There were three modern five-inch guns mounted on El Frailo, and they at once opened fire in the dark. Tho Concord and the Boston each returned with three shots but none of them bit. Tho ships entered tho harbor in or der of seniority—that is, the seniority of tho captains. The first was the Olympia, then the Baltimore, Raleigh, Boston, Concord and Pet rel. After these camc the McCullough and the transports Zafiro and Nanshaw. These three wore left about three miles to the roar of the firing lino when the lighting commenced in the morning. Well you know the story of tho battle pretty well. You want me to The Battle give my impressions of it? It of just seemed to me wo were going into a routine target practice. Manila There was no great excitemont. Everybody wont about his own business just as usual. Way down in tbe ship whoro 1 worked it was very not it was a hot morning anyhow. But wo didn't have time to think of the heat there was just one idea for us all and that was to get in and sink thoso Spanish ships and we did it. The firing commenced about half-past 5. We had not had a thing to eat, not even a cup ,of coffoo. At 7:30 wo pulled off, but wo had stayed with the work until every one of tho ene my ships was ruined or sunk. Then we ato breakfast. There wasn't much of it, but what thare was was good beef tea and the sort of things that brace a man up. As soon as the firing ceased the command ing officers of each ship were summoned to the flagship. You can imagine tho admiral's sur prise when they reported no ono killed or badly hurt. He congratulated each of the captains on their fine work, and told tliom to do tho same for bim to their crews. Oh, I tell you the admiral was just the man for that place! He knew what ho was doing, and overy man in the fleet thinks the world of him It was a beautiful sight to see tho old salt's face light up with pleasure and devotion as he spoke of his beloved ex-commander. One hear ing him could not doubt tho sincority of his words. When the captain came back I tell you there was a lot of cheering. Tho boys were crazy and cbeored and sang and said what they thought. Of course some of 'om usod kind o' strong lan guage but I remember well ono fellow who said: Well fellers, I feel as though we've got those pepper eaters to tho bottom at last.' You see, during tho fight the boys didn't suy much, but tlioy turned loose afterward. On the way down the captain read us the proclamation of tho captain general of the Philippines. Con sul Wildman had brought a copy of it with him from Manila. It called us Americans pigs, sav ages, cut-throats and everything that was bad, and I tell you it riled us up a whole lot. About 9 o'clock we went back into action again and in half an hour the forts at Cavite were done up. Wo hadn't been through very long boforo the insurgents got in and took everything in sight that they nould carry off—organs, pianos, sewing machines, everything you could think of. Capture of Cavite I have a picture here which I took from the commandant's house. They would liavo had that if it hadn't been so high on tho wall that they probably didn't see it. "Tnat evening (Sunday) just before sunset a boat hove in sight, coming into the harbor. Dewey sent out the Concord and the Raleigh with the instructions: Find out what that ship is. If she is a German, warn her off if she is English, admit her if she is Spanish, capture her.' So you see that even thon Dewey had his suspicions of the Germans. "But as wo drew near to the vessel wo noticed smoko rising from her farther side. Wo went to look it up and found that it was a Spanish tug, evidently trying to escape past our fleet by hugging close to tho side of the larger ship. Wo took lior commander on board the Concord and found out afterward that he was the same who had caught us entering tho channel tho night before and that ho had this same tug at the time. The ship was an English gunboat, but I don't remember her name. "The Olympia and the Petrel did most of the work in reducing the forts, and the next day ®ll 1 A Sailor of the Concord returns to his Los Angeles Home WHAT HE SAW OF THE FAMOUS BATTLE The Bombardment and Capture of Cavite —Grande Island Incident—A Spanish Tug- 4 boat Which Did Not Safely Get Away. the Olympia's marines landed and took posses sion. Mr. Brotherton liimsolf did not go ashore until the 8th, a woek after tho battle, but he brings with him a number of interesting souve nirs of his visit, such as a long, wicked-looking Mauser cartridge, a Hotchkiss rapid-tiro shell, a Spanish belt buckle of brass with a crown and crossed cannons and balls upon it. He tolls an ln,!™stl!',gstors'of tho 5S ,?.cord expedition to Subig Bay. aQd Raleigh left Manila on July 7th. \Ye steamed up tho coast and as we were ontenng Subig bay the German cruiser Irene came swiftly out and hurried off to the north. She had not oven waited to hoist an chor, but slipped hor cable. "With our battle-flags flying we hoadod for Grande island in the bay, where we knew there wero some Spanish soldiers. Thero wore some works thrown up near the water and after ward wo found several five-inch guns there un mounted. But not a soldior was to be seen. Fi nally Capt.. Coagland of tho Kalcigh gave tho signal to open fire. Tho Concord sent two throe inch, shells into the barracks ou tho hill, fifty or sixty feet above tho water, fairly blowing tho end off the building. Then those fellows swarmed out of there like hornets. There wero C00 of them. They surrendered to us on condi tion that we should not turn tliom over to the insurgents at Subig. Wo were just going to take them on board when somo insurgent boats camo up from Manila, claiming authority from Dewey to take them. Our captains were doubt ful about tins, so after taking their arms wo left them on the island, where they could not get away, and went back to Manila to see the admiral. He said that ho had given the insur gents orders to take the captured soldiers and that wo should givo them up. So tho insurgents brought them down to Manila." Mr. Brotherton has ono of tho captured rifles. It is an old Sharps' 45. Instead of lead, the Spaniards had brass balls for their cartridges, in direct violation of international law. Mr. Brotherton has one of them and it is a very ug ly-looking affair. He also shows a bamboo cano with a solid silver head, carried by ,i cap tured Spanish sergeant. Being asked of his opinion of tho Spanish soldiers, Mr. Brotherton said They are a queer lot of fel- Spanish lows, and keep very quiet after •tnlriiorc tl,ey nre captured. The ones we took up at Grande island did not seem much jut out about com ing with us, but when they were turned over to the insurgents they seemed to lose all heart. But tlie whole thing shows what kind of men wo have and the kind of stuff behind our guns. And it shows, too, the result of plenty of hard work at tho targets, where every man has to do his share of practice." Mr. Brotherton retires from liis life on the sea with many interesting mementos gathered in all lands and many recollections of tilings seen and done, but of all these, proudest and most precious to him are tho things and the thoughts which carry his mind back to that Sunday morning in May when he fought with Dewey in Manila bay.
