Off Santiago, June 20.—Euless the |
Spanish make a much more determined |
stand than tJiey have since the army of |
invasion landed on Wednesdiv, tomor -1
Shatter's men at the j
gates of Santiago. j
So far the Spaniards seem to have been j
dazed by the rapidity and daring of the j
American advance. Position after posi- j
tion has been abandoned with scarcely a |

lighting. ,
It is now believed that the first stand
in force wili be encountered at the in
trenehments immediately east of tlie
citv, as the United States scouts have
pretty thoroughly explored the territory
between the heatl of the column and the i
Spanish outposts, and they report that j
these intrenchinents are heavily lnaniied,
but that there is no considerable body of (
troops east of them. !
The insurgents under Gens. Garcia and
Castillo are now in constant touch with
the main body of the attacking army,
and are proving a source of greatest

The losses on our side are probably
more severe than at first reported, and
although the official list is being witli
plcted, the best available
sources of information indicate that more
than ten were killed ami that fully fifty
were wounded. Among the latter is Ed
ward Marshall, the correspondent of a
New York newspaper, whose wounds are
believed to be mortal.
Tlie severity of tlie losses is attributed
in part to the utter contempt displayed
by Roosevelt's men and tlie regulars for

Special Disiwtch to The Sun.
VVashinoton, June 20.—Interest has
shifted sharply from the Navy Depart
nient to the War Department. The news
paper reports telling of the short and
bloody engagement between the
Spaniards defending Santiago and the
Hough Riders, the romantic features in
the American army, aroused popular in
terest to a high pitch.
Consequently, us soon as the War De
partment opened for business a crowd of
wspaper men and other interested per
sons filled the hall and the neighbor
hood of the bulletin-boards, seeking for
some official information that would
supply data missing from the press ac
counts yesterday.
It was not until nearly noon that the |
first cable dispatch came from General
Shafter, and then, to the disappointment
of the Department, it was even more'
meagre than the press reports. In the
conf of the day several other dis
patches were received, but they all left
much to be desired, for, being under
vesterdav's date, they did not relieve the
anxiety as to what happened yesterday
evening and today with the two armies
separated by tlie short space of a mile

Snceinl hisimti'li to The Sun.
Pkxxsoiiovk, N T . J , June 20—A rumor
j s prevalent among the boys of the
Second Pennsylvania Volunteers in camp
], ere that orders to move to Porto Rico
mav come anv hour. The rumor meets
V vith hearty approval, as all tlie hoys are
eager to get a whack at the Spaniards.
Lieutenant Colonel Decliert subjected
tlie camp;to a thorough inspection to
hay and everything was found in apple-!
pj e or<ier. The battalion drill, under
command of Major llartung, this .norn
ing was also highly commendable. One
member of Company 11 could not stand
the heat and tell, but soon recovered.
Last night, in addition to the consign
nient of equipments received, there came
one case more, conuiining 2.')b campaign
hats. About noon today 19eases of Win
Chester rifle cartridges, each case con
taining 1000 rounds, were received. A
few rides were given out yesterday and
the balance were distributed among the
men this afternoon. Tlie boys are well
pleased with their pieces. The camp is
now on a good war tooting, as it has
nearly all its equipments and supplies
and could be moved to the front at al
most any time on short notice.
