Showers tomorrow morning. Southwest winds. News From Camp Olympia. The weather was fine in camp Tues day until o l m. when there was a light shower, It was fair at night. There- was an exciting timo here Tuesday morning when the fire alarm sounded at abobt 10 o'clock in the morn ing. Companies K. L, and I responded from the parade ground where they were drilling and "found the whole o'f the broad expanse of woods in the rear of the canp one mass of flames, with the wind blowyig almost a gale towards the camp. Cu-.op Olympia was indeed threatened with" great danger, but the three companies which responded soon checked the progress of the fire. At 1 p.m. the second call was sounded by Mercer and the whole regiment re sponded. This time the progress of the fire was completely stopped. About 500 acres of woodland was damaged but the government woods were pro tected all right. Every man who has heretofore worn a mustache had the same removed Tues day forenoon. Cnpt. Badger is the only exception. The slaughter of Company F took place Tuesday forenoon. l'J men were thrown down. The 2nd Lieut, 2 cor porals and 15 privates. Sadly dissa pointeil the unlucky ones left for Xorth ficld on the first train. It is reported that E. A. B. Bishop will visit the Camp Thursday. We arc waiting for our old friend and will give him a hearty welcome. The recruits of Company Fare show ing up in fine shape and are given very stiff drills every day. There lias been no sickness in the Company vit and everyone is feeling well. 24 hours a day out of doors is doing us all good. The new recruits who arrived Tues day with Lieut, Meaker were given a glad welcome, by all the boys. Company C feels very much down hearted at losing their 2nd Lieut., 2 sergeants and l'J privates. So far Company h has the best record for examination and means to maintain it in every way. The evenings spout around the camp fires are very pleasant ones indeed. It may be of some interest to friends at home to know how we live down here. Six men occupy each tent over which presides a non commissioned offi cer who is rc'spoiisibe for the appearance of the tent and its surroundings when inspection comes. Each ' man is sup posed to provided with a mattrass imd blankest and the Moor of the tent is pretty well covered when the boys have all turned in. There is a raised floor un der each tent so that when it rains we are kept dry. Each man is provided with a tin plate, steel knife and fork and tin cup which he has to wash and scour himself. The latter is usually done in a big pile of sand dug up for the purpose. The cooking is all (lone m a building till rods in the rear of the com nanv street. Here the rations are is sued to the men as they come up inline and the greer sward is used for a table and chair at once. For breakfast we have bacon, bread, butter, and coffee. For dinner, beefsteak, potatoes, bread butter, and coffee. For supper, Beans bread, butler, and coffee. There is is. sued to each company every day 100 lbs meat, 40 loaves of bread. 40 ijiiarts of milk, :S bushels of potatoes, :5 lbs of coffee and other necessities. When supper is over there is nothing left. There seems to be a strange, iuconsis tencv and a slight vein of luck running through the method of physical examina tions 'given the boys -at Camp Olympia.

They state that on some of the coldest nights there are only three or four blan keTs to every six men.

Americans Worsted in Naval Battle. Kev West, May 12. There was a disastrous engagement off Cardenas yesterday near Mantanzas. The cruiser Wilmington, the torpedo boat Wins low and the gunboat Hudson were the United States ships engaged, ami the names of the Spau'sh ships are as yet unknown. Those who were killed were Ensign Worth, Ensign W. Bagley, John Varvorls, oiler ; Josiah Tunnct, cabin cook ; J. V. Weeks anil J. Dan iel, firemen, of the Wiuslow. The The Hudson returned here this morn ing with the bodies. A great many of the sailors were wounded, the most serious of these are Lieutenant Berua dow, of the Winslow ; R. .E, Cox, guu tiers mate ; D. AicKeeon,"quarter- j master ; J. Patterson, fireman, and F. Gray, fireman. The engagement occurred of! Car denas harbor at two o'clock yesterday afternoon. The American boats en tered the harbor for the purpose of at tacking the Spanish gunboats which were stationed there, as it was thought if the gunboats could be silenced it would be an easy step to effect an en trance to the town. The gunboats, however, proved to be made of diil'er ent stun" from those which have been met before, and the Americans met with the first repulse which they have thus far sustained, although a stifl fight was put up. The defeat, how ever, is not so serious as at first!" might be imagined, for the Americans had in this fight everything to gain and nothing to lose. Another attempt can be made now as well as belore, while, it the fort had been captured from the Spanish, the latter would have utterly failed. It is thought t lie attack was made simply to test the strength of the Spanish at this point. The first shot was from the Spanish gunboats which were supported by the batteries on land. The engagement lasted an hour, and considering the ranidity of the Spanish lire the Ameri can loss canuot be saitl to be heavy. The battle while it lasted was terrific. The Wilmington and Hudson fired first and then the Winslow came up. In an instant the entire attention of the Spanish gunboats and the batteries on laud were directed towards her. From all sides sheets of shell and shot seemed to pour upon her. The brave crew of the Winslow never falfered, but one solid shot crashed through her hull, knocking out the boiler. In an instant she began to roll and drift help lessly about and there was a moment of awful suspense as the fiends on shore watched their devilish work of de struction. A fierce cheer of triumph went up from the Spaniards ami again a storm of fire opened on the helpless bout. The Hudson threw a line to the crew. Ensign Bagley anil six. men stood on deck as the line was thiown. The brave Ensign smiled and said : " Let her come, it is getting too hot here for comfort." At the same in stant a shell burst in the very midst of the group and quick as a flash of light ning from Heaven save brave souls were hur.ed into eternity while strug gling f ir the rights of their country and the great cause of humanity. The names of two of Ihein have not yet been learned. When in history shall the names of these brave heroes be forgotlnug? They have gonetolheir Defeated. Battles in Which Loses to Have Been Sunk last sleep with the blessing of a mighty nation and ere long the memory of their death like that of the sailors of the Maine will serve to spur on the American dogs of war to a revenge that shall mean the freedom of a people and the downfall of a barbarous kingdom. JThe bodies were recovered by the crew of the Hudson and brought to Key West. The other boats retired. No other boat bi s'des the Winslow was struck. The Winslow was towed to Pedia Island where she was anchored and the dead were removed from the docks. The story of the battle was told by Com mander Bernado. He said they went to the harbor under orders to attack the Spanish gunboats which were tied to the dock and had a fair range on the approaching vessels. The crew of the Wiuslow acted nobly. Hie shell which killed them burst in their very faces. The Hudson shows the effects of the fight but is still serviceable. A small smokestack was punctured with bullet holes while the cabins and dacks were smashed and splintered. Ensign Bag Icy was 20 years old and very popular. His face was blown half off and he was Killed instantly. Americans Lose in the Cuban Battle. Havana, May 12. Four American vessels opened fire upon Cicnfuiros on Wednesday morning and attempted to land men and arms on barges. They were repulsed by the Spanish troops and the guns from the forts. The sec ond attempt to land was also frustrated. The lighting lasted eight hours anil was a most determined battle on both sides. It is reported that the American loss was heavy and that fourteen Spaniards were wounded. The Spaniards were on shore and therefore better protected, while the Ann rican troops were obliged to light in the open Held and subject to a hot fire from the troops in barricade and also the terrific fire from the guns at the forts.
