The time and sea were propitious for
the army of inrasion.

army arone from .hip after ship as the
troopships moved in to take their share
in tbe hatardous game of war, and it
was maguini-ent.
Cuban iiuunrauts, too, bore their share
in the enterprise honorably and well.
Fire thousand of them were in the
mountain fastnesses and dark thickets
and ravines and lay all through the night
on their guns watching every rsid and
mountain path leading from Santiago to
Ouantanamo. One thousand of them
were within sight of Haiuin making
tbe approach of the Spaniards under tbe
cover of darkness lmxwsible.
At 4 o'clock this morning as the Ano
clated Press dispatch boat approached
Hauiuiri, tbe entire island of Cuba
seemed wrapped in a soft mist, like that
of dogdays in northern Utitnles. A
dull, thick cloud lay on the eastern bor
laoo and the color reflected in the gray
waters of the ocean, which are generally
undulated in a lasy breeic. Distant ob
jects loomed up dimly, but it was iM-en
that the many troopship that had been
lying several miles in tbe offing, had
drawn in toward fhie, while three or
four warships lav menacingly uear the
All around tbe transports steam
launches and small tioats bobbing about
like corks were tbe first indications of
the true object of the undertaking
ahead. An hour later the sun was ris
ing in the eastern sky, touching the
mountain tops with patches of light
green ami revealing in the great semi
circle the troopships, some close to the
cuaat line, others a mile d.stant, with
decks crowded with eager, expectant
men, impatient to begin the gn at move,
ment of destiny, to make a new i hapter
in tbe history of America, the first In
vasou by our army of a foreign country
in half a century.
As tbe dispatch lst of the Associated
Press ran sMsW m, near where the New
Orleans was lying, with her gn at Ann
strong guns trained on daiquiri, tongue
of a lurid flame and black smoke were
seen rising from the town, an inevi

sign the SKimnrds had gone, lenvmg

waiting made the men on the transports
impatient to get ashore and inaction,
and every move of the warships wens
closely watched by the soldiers.
