A provost guard did duty at Lytic and all saloons and disorderly places were kept closed. All the saloons in Chattanooga, which for the past two Sundays have been wide open, were to-day closed by order of the city authorities, so that the day was peaceful. Services were held in the twenty-two Christian Commission tents now in operation in the camp and the proclama tion of I 'resident McKinley, suggesting that prayers for peace bo offered by all ministers, Avas observed. From every pulpit in Chattanooga to-day prayers fov peace ami the triumph of the American army were offered by the pastors. Masses were said by Catholic clergy men during the day at the park. The First Ohio cavalry received the last of its needed equipments to-day a"d it will move to Tampa early Tuesday. ( Icneral II. Y.

It had been raining hard ail day. but just after the Kim drew out into the stream a beautiful rainbow appeared spanning the entrance to the harbor like a triumphal arch umh r which the ship was sailing. The watch- in: soldiers caught the significance (the incident and a cheer swept al-'iig the water front that could be heard all over the city. Special services conducted by the chap lains of each of the regiments were held iu various churches of the city to-day.

(Copyright by the Associated Press.) !':" Santiago de Cuba, duly S, per tin Associated Dispatch Boat Cynthia, by way of Port Antonio. Jamaica and Kingston. Jamaica, July !. (I p. in. Captain Adolph Marix. of the converted yacht Scorpion, ami Captain Pureed, of the Osceola, had a hot time on July .rd. at Manzanillo, where- they had. estab lished a blockade. Manzanillo has unHl lately been guarded, and the Spanish have used it for a port of supplies. (Jen eral Pa.udo and his branch of the army being there, it was decided to lock the stable door last week, and on Sunday, July oi'd. the Scorpion and Osceola were before the place. It is on a long, deep bay. and a close examination by Captain Marix. convinced him that its defence wa.s one small fort and four gunboats. On Sunday morning Captain Marix decided to go in after the gunboats, and so signalled to Captain Purcell. Cap tain Marix tells the story as follows: "Imagine otir surprise upon finding, instead of gunboats and a small fort, the shore Idled v.ith artillery and infan try. The lire we moved into was a des perate one. considering that we did not have any protection for our men or the guns. For twenty-live minutes we siayed at ii, and I think we must have done a lot of damage. I had no piiot. and could not move in (lose. We were hit frequently, and at last, when a shot had cleaned our galley and I saw that it was useless to risk the men's lives, we moved out. "The gunboats lay behind the hills in small coves, and we could, not get them. We moved out slowly and the lire ci ased. The next morning we cap tured a large lighter and a sloop tilled with provisions. No attempt was made by the guuhoats to come out to the de fense of these ships. Tlie Spanish steamer Purissima Conception. w hi h had been around the coast looking for a. place to land money and provisions, is in the harbor and has: discharged her cargo.

Th e cent me eo withdrawals of gold for Germany and Russia, and dividend payments have caused a rise in the discount rate, and money is expected to gradually become dearer.

THE WOUNDED AT TAMPA TOLD THEIR EXPERIENCES WHILE UNDER THE SURGEONS' liNDS. The Efftx! of Wounds Irflicted by the Bullets of Mausers -A!! tiiu Men arj Duing Wtll. Tampa, Fla., July 10. The transports Iroquois ami Cherokee, arriving last night, brought four hundred and lifty wounded men from Santiago. These have been distributed to-day to positions on shore and the transports are await ing orders. At daylight the long train of hospital cars Avas thrown open for the reception of those who were going to Ft. MePher son and 'I'lW men were placed aboard. Eighty seven were sent to the general hospital of the Fourth army corps, and the surgeons there had their lirst expe rience in dressing war wounds. The sufferers were treated with the greatest consideration, and while they lay upon the rough pine table they gave an ac count -of their wounds, and how they were received and what effect they had on them. Invariably when the Mauser bullets struck they were knocked down, but suffered little. The holes seemed to have been neatly drilled through the flesh or bone, making no laceration. On ly one man brought over was unable to walk, all the others having sufficiently recovered to do so. The wounds were mainly in the hamls. arms and feet. Men with their feet bundled In white cloths and their arms in slings were iu abundance. but although they must have suffered, they v.-ere hap py. They talked good liaturedly of the light and spoke highly of the enemy. Many of them have souvenirs, such as machetes, Mauser bullets, some having retained the bullets that wounded them. One man's riile was struck, the bullet deflecting and wounding him in the arm. It made an ugly wound on account of the bullet being Jlattencd. Tho surgeons in charge, report all the men doing well. The special train left for Fort M Pherson at noon to-day and the balance of the wounded will leave on the same train next Tuesday. Lieutenant G. W.

Sampson. Washing m. D. C. July lo - The bom bardment of Santiago lias begun,' that: was the verbal information obtained this, afternoon shortly before 1 o'clock at the War Department. Almost immediately three bulletins were posted, the most important of) which was from General Shatter. This! dispatch announced that Gi neral Toral, who succeeded Gen. Linares in com mand of the Spanish forces in Santiago w hen the latter w as wounded, had do-1 (lined to surrender unconditionally audi that the bombardment of tho town , .... . . . i woiud no hegun tty tho army and navy about 4 o'clock this evening. The fact that tlie bombardment was scheduled by Shatter to begin so late in the day created some comment, but no explanation of it was offered. Information received by the War De partment during the few days of truce j indicates that Shatter has materially' strengthened his position. During tin past wee!-: hp has received reinforce ments of both artillery and infantry. Randolph's battery of tw enty-four guns which left Key West last '1 uesday at midnight is now in position before San tiago and. as one of the War Depart ment officials expressed it: "When those Long Toms of Randolph begin to talk, something will happen in Santiago. (Jeneral Shafter has nearly fifty siege guns and a large number of seven inch mortars, beside lighter artillery at his disposal. These guns, taken with the work that can be done by the licet will, it is believed, carry terror and destruc tion to Santiago. Anxiety had been expressed bv the War Department officials as to whether General Shafter had a sufficient force to prevent the evacuation' of Santiago by the enemy. This anxiety was allay ed about half past 1- to-night by tin receipt of following dispatch from Gen eral Shafter, which contained confirma tion, too, of the earliest reports of the beginning of the bombardment: "Playa del Este.

POSITIONS OF OUR TROOPS. Twelve Mort-irs and The Demon Dyna mite Gun Ready. Copyright 1SJS by Associated Press. I Before Santiago. Saturdiy. July p. in. Per Associated Press dispatch boat Wanda, via Port. Antonio and Kingston, Jamaica, Sunday, July lo. -11 a. m. Everything on ik' tiring line is now ready for the commencement of hostilities, in ca.se the Spanish generals do not surrender. The dyn unite gun. which has been in posbioii for several days, is now iu better working order than at the time of the battle of San Juan, and it is predicted that is charges, consisting of twenty pounds of gun cotton and gelatine will work havoc in the Spanish trenches when it opens tire. Twelve mortars in one battery are mounted and ready for use. and they nr. relied upon to jh' effective work in shell ing the city. Three batteries of artillery are posted on El Paso Ridge L4i0 yards from the town, and the Capron and Climes batteries are l.r.OO ynrds to the north of the road in the rear of Gen eral Lawton's division. In firing the field guns will be compelled to shell the town over Ihe heads of o-ir own men. but the artillery ofiiccrs say it cm be done safely and without injury to our so' iliers. The dynamite gun has been so placed that it will be able to enfilade several of tho Spanish lines. On the other hand, during tho truce, which so far. as regarding the continu ing preparations for defence or attaok hts been no truce whatever, the Spaniards have not been idle. They have been mounting guns and some -f these ate of much heavier calibre tha:i any the American army can bring into play. Some of their guns are of atiti quatcd pattern and not capible of much damage, but others .ire very different and capable of excellent work. One seven-inch gun, which had so perfect a range during the battle of San Juan of many ridi-os occupied by the Ameri can troops, has been located with osm--ciil care by the American gunners, and it will be the recipient of much attention when hostilities reopen. General Bates' division, which holds the extreme left of the line. moed for ward to-day lo a new position, p0 yards in advance, planted along the edge of a precipit ions ravine, the walls are about eighly feet high. This ravine is about Too yards long, and about 1 f M yards wide. General Bales has now moved the Twentieth infantry to tlie side of the ravine nejiresl Santiago and placed Ihe Third infantry, which, with the Twentieth forms his brigade, at right angles to the line of the Twentieth The extreme left of his line, which is the extreme left of the American army, is about opposite the dipper end of San tiago hail. or. and from lour to six miles from the coast line. When hostilities are opened by the bomhardnietil. great things are expected from the navy. Admiral Sampson is quoted throughout the army as saying that he will drop one shell into the city ri ry five minutes, and if that is not sufficient to do the work he will drop one into the city every two minutes. Tin lire, in addition to what the land forces will turn in. it is thought will bo suffi cient to reduce the Spaniards to a point whose they will si.rrender. Genera! Hawkins, commanding the f:r.-t 1 rigad-.' of General Kent's division, who was wounded in the foot during the attack made on our lines Saturday night .y the Spaniards, has returned to ihe United Stales. Colonel Theater, of the Sixteenth infantry, has succeeded Gen eral Hawkins in the command of the brigade. and Colonel W'.mmI, of the Rough Riders will succeed General Young. Lieutenant Colonel Roosevelt, w ill command the Rough Riders here- a fter. Sixteen Spanish prisoners who were wounded were turned oer to the Span iards yesterday afternoon. Dr. Good follow and Captain Drier, escorted the a ui hula in c-. and tie- correspondent of the Associated Press. accompanied them. The Spiniards displayed great gratitude for this kindness, and there was considerable fraternizing with th" Spaniard's. and desire for peace stood out like a headlight in a fog. There i no doubt that the subordinate Spanish officer are anxious to surrender, but they prac tically said thai upon General Toral's decision they would rest. They admit ted that tley were short of provisions, but all appeared to be determined and resolute, and willing to die if need be, in tie- defence of the city. EUROPE ADVISES PEACE. Carlist Meetings Greatly Disturb the Spanish lov -riiLieii!. Paris. July 10. The .Madrid correspon dent of the Temps, says: "The end is impatiently awaited, even the government no longer attinpfing to disguise its conviction that after ihe fall of Santiago, the time will have come for thinking about overtures of peace, especially as all the European chancel lories advise this course. "The meetings that are being held at Bayonne. in the province of Navarre, and along the Pyrennean frontier, greatly disturb the Ministry. The par-' tisans if Den Carlos are making no secret of their intention to rise, if the terms upon which peace is concluded should entail a loss of territory. "General Blanco rabies that it will be impossible for reinforcements to reach Santiago in time to aid in the defense, the duration of which will depend upon the supply of food and ammunition, un less tho garrison attempts a desperate sortie." The Temps. commenting upon the fort going dispatch from its Madrid cor respondent, says: "What should decide neutral Cabinets to give wise counsels to Madrid, is not only the fact that the latest develop ments of the war have entirely changed the complexion of, the situation, which was already grave enough for Spain, but the further fact that there are trustworthy indications of a beginning of a reaction in favor of peace in og&uil circles."
