SUNK BY MINES AT SANTIAGO Report That She Was Sent in the Harbor to Determine Location of Destructives. Terrific Battle Raging Between Sampson, Schley and the Big Spanish Fleet. y Special Dispatch toTHF, Srx. WASHINGTON, June 3.—According to news that came by way ofthc Span ish cable to Haiti, the American col lier Merrimac was sunk by Spanish mines today while trying to force tier way into Santiago harbor. They reported eight of the crew taken prisoners, and the number ol' lost not known. The Merrimac was a steel steamer bought by (he government some weeks ago as a carrier of coal. She was probably sent in lo try the mines, as she coaid easier be -p .reil than any of the fighting vessels of tiie spuailron. und was probably manned by a crew who volunteered for Hie perilous work. No con llr mat ion of Hie loss of the vessel has reached the Navy Depart ment, but. (hoy consider it extremely probable, though coming from Span ish sources, as II was expected Samp son would try to force tiie passage with some of his vessels. Officials here are awaiting (lie news of Sampson's bombardment of the foils at Santiago, as it was expected he would begin operations today against the ihrlideations and the Spanish fleet. Rumors of a terrific light at Santi ago came from Cape Haitien and the details are looked for tomorrow. First News of Battle. Special Disj atch to The sun.

Maduiu June .8.—Tiie Pais, a promi nent Republican paper, concedes that the United S'ates fleet has made a second attack upon Santiago de Cuba, and that, the Americans forced an entrance into tiie harbor.

In speak ing of this Secretary Alger said today; "Wo cannot conquer a mitlo*. with out running great risks. The time has come ior us to lake cliunccs." This is all ho would say about the im pending battle. Tiie Cubans in Washington have been in constant communication witli tiie State Department here, and say that as soon as Santiago i« taken the city will be made the cnpitnl of the Cuban Republic. The Cuban diplomats in this city, in conjunction with the Department of Jus tice, are at work devising a form of civil government for the Cubans to enforce as goon as the capitoi of the Republic is made stationary.

The troops embarked yesterday and may have been halted at Key West. They may have gone from Tampa or Mobile or some other point on the coast and although dispatches from those points suy that no troop ships have sailed, contrary information is obtain able here from "such sources as are en tirely unquestionable.

Butler, Amos Cole, Harry F. Ford and John R. McGon nigal for aiding and abetting William N Boggs in the looting of the First National Bank of Dover, have also turned their attention to other gentlemen who may have been interested in the robbing of the bank. The allegation is that they already nave taken in hand the charges against United States Senator Richard Rollins Kenney and that the case of John F. Saulsbury may also follow, jf these ailegations are true, then when the grand jury make their report it is more than possible that a sensation will be sprung on the public. A gentleman was interviewed yester day afternoon in reference to tiie matter, but lie would neither afiirm nor deny the story. If such is the case, however, the person interviewed is placed in such a position that it would be impossible for him to divulge the fact. It was predicted in these columns be fore the trial of Colonel Kzekiel T.' Coop er, that Senator Kenney would become "interested" in tiie future proceedings of the different trials, and it now seems ns if the gentleman in question and Air. Saulsbury may yet a-crriain this import ant fact to their sorrow. It is understood tl.at ever since Wed neaday tiie grand jurors have been ex amining witnesses and investigating the charges against Senator Kenney, and the outcome of their investigation^ awaited with an interest that is daily becoming more intense, No presentments were made by the jurors when they appeared in the Fed era I court room yesterday afternoon and a * their request they were discharged until Tuesday morning of pext week at 11.80 o'clock.

In Hie latter end of September, 18!) , a man was found drowned here and at tiie time it was alleged that ho pushed overboard.
