The American troops captured the out er works of Santiago last Friday. The American loss was heavy. Gen. Shatter has demanded the surrender of the city. Sunday morning Admiral Cevera with hla Spanish fleet made a desperate dash from Santiago harbor and tried to escape, but the entire fleet was destroyed. The American navy was taken completely by surprise, but not off Its guard. Admiral Cevera and 1,000 Spaniards were cap. tured. . - - -. The French line steamer, La Bour- KOKue. with 723 persona on board, was sunk by a collision with the Iron sailing ship, Cromartyshere, early Monday morn- lna. durtnir a thick foil, south of Sable Island. The La Uourgogne sank within half an hour and MO lives were lost. On ly one woman was saved. The orew act ed In a most horrible manner, and fought like demons for the few life boats and rafts. Washington Letter. Washington, July 4, vm. He Is a callous roan, indeed, who can look at Old Glory after reading of the heiolo conduct of Gen. Snafter's brave men at Bantlago, and of Sampson's gal lant tars, who no ably asRlsted In the winning victory after victory, without feeling new pride of his country. Shafter's men fought undr great difficultly. The country around Santiago would be a diffi cult one for military operations under the most favorable circumstances, but when those operations are suocessfuly conduct ed with the thermometer ranging from 105 to 125 In the shade and against an enemy about e'jual In numbers and strong ly intrenched, they command the unbound ed admiration of, not only Americans, but of all men who admire bravery, en durance and determination. Shaffer's short campaign against Santiago has made an enviable plaue in history for himself and his men. The casualties were large, but It seems wonderful that they were not larger. Inasmuch as the mombers of the select committee on the census, Just named by Speaker Iteod, will have much to say about the large number of appointments to be made by the census bureau which will get to work next year on the census of 1900, outside of the civil service rule, there was more or less scrambling and wire pulling to get on the committee. Following Is the committee : Hopkins, of Ills., Chairman, Russell, of Conn., Bab cook, of Wis., Heatwole, of Minn., Ache son, of Penn., Alexander, of New York, Aldrioh, of Ala j Wise, of Va., DeVtles, of Cal., Morton, of South Carolina; Kldgeley.of Kansas; Grlfflth,of Ind. ; and Mac Do well, of Ohio. Eight of the com mittee are republicans, four democrats, and one a populist. Although there Is still considerable out side speculation as to Germany's Inten tion the Philippines, President McKIn ley and Secretary Day stated at a cabiuet meeting that they had received official as surances direct from the government of Germany that no interferences with American plans in the Philippines, had been even thought of. The revival of the old European story that Germany, France and Knssta had formed a combination to head off the U. H. and Great Britain In the Phlllppnes, Is not attracting any special attention in Washington, for the very simple reason that nobody believes It. Military men are much Interested in the successful nse of a balloon by Gen. Hhafter to make observations of move ments Inside the enemy's lines in and around Santiago, and they have no doubt that when the report of the campaign is made, Gen. Shatter's statement of the use of the balloon will be so strong that it will give the balloon a permanent place among American military accoutrements, such as it already holds In Europe. Further than a temporary shortage of stamps In several large cities, the causes of complaint made to the treasurer de partment about the new tax law, which has been In effect since the first of the month, have been trivial. No one class has been more abused on account of the new law than the receiving clerks of the telegraph companies. Where one man tendering a telegram unstamped would lauirh and aay, "On, I forgot,' when In formed that It could not be received until the stamp was attached, three would say unprintable things about the tele graph company because (t does not pay this tax. No trouble was experienced at any of the banks, although many of their customers appealed to have heard of the stamp tax for the first time when they presented checks without stamps and had them handed back by the paying tellers The state department has information that Spanish agents are In Mexico trying to organize a force of Spaniards and Spanish sympathizers to make a raid on Texas towns near the border. The lnfor. matlon worried nobody in Washington, because the belief Is general that If the Spaniards ever take a radlng party from Mexico into Texas, the 1 exans will see to It that not a Spaniard gets back to Mexico. The annexation of Hawaii Is in sight likewise the adjournment of congress. It was hoped by the friends of annexation that the president could have signed the resolution for the annexation of Hawaii on independence day, so that our fello citizens to-be on the Islands would have been given an additional reason for join lng with us In celebrating our greatest national holiday foi all time but the senators In charge of the resolution con cluded that It would be wiser not to add the dying agonies of the antls by pushing it to a vote, knowing that a vote would come without any pushing la a few days. The resolution will probably be adopted by the senate during the present week, and the adjournment of oongress will fol low very closely, unless something new turn up to Interfere with the carrying out of the present programme.

S. is the laying of a sidewalk from Tracy's corner as far down Main street as the funds of the society will allow. E.A.

EtpartM la Conai , In the Fifty-firat congress there was a tilt between General Spinola and Eli jah Adams Morse that was entertaining. The general always wore an enormous itanding collar. It was so large that it Is said that Tim Campbell approached him one day and tapped the oollar with the ferrule of his cane, apologetically asking, "la General Spinola witbinr Sir. Morse was making a sort ol a pro hibition speech against the sale of in toxicating liqnors in army canteens. General Spinola had interrupted him leveral times, and in reply the Maasa chnsetts statesman finally twitted him upon the size of bis oollar. It stung the general to the quick. Taking the floor come minutes afterward, he called atten tion to Mr. Morse's language. "My col lar, " said he, "nnlike the gentleman from Massachusetts, is immaculately clean, and if it was twice as high as it ia and was placed around the neck of the gentleman from Massachusetts it would not serve to hide his ears." The general was a political curia He had a striking faoe and a martial air. In the Fifty-first oongress he threw the bouse into convulsions by pointing to the painting representing a scene at the liege of Yorktown and gravely accusing Speaker Reed of counting the Hessians therein to make up a qnorom.
