    The Oity of Santiago De Oabn.
Although thts city has one of the
finest harbors in the West Indies and
is the centre of a great copper region,
it ranks third only in commercial im
portance among the ports of Cuba.
It has a picturesque locality, with
mountains on three sides, but is ex
ceedingly hot and subject to epi
demics of yellow fever.
Before the city is an immense bay,
into the upper harbor of which Ad
miral Cervera was induced to take
his squadron by a ruse of Commodore
Schley, who immediately blockaded
the only means of exit The entrance
is between high, fortified bluffs.
It is the difficulty of ready com
munication through this channel that
has retarded the development of the
city. The city was supposed to have
the strongest defenses on the entire
southern coast of Cuba, but the Ameri
can fleet, in several bombardments,
soon rendered the various works in
effective. The city exports copper
ore, sugar, coffee, rum and fruit, and
has a population of about 40,000, with
30,000 more in the suburbs.
Postal Development-
The following statement by an
official shows how the post office de
partment is keeping up with the war
procession : "The postal service is
breaking all records during the present
war. Two months ago, who in the
land, or world for that matter, would
have thought it possible for us to have
a post office in fine working order at
Manila, thousands of miles away, by
this time, or at Camp McCalla, on
the southern coast of Cuba ? Before
three more weeks are gone it is almost
safe to say that the soldiers and pri
vate citizens may be calling for their
regular mail at San Juan, U. S. A.
(San Juan is the principal city in
Porto Rico). The way the postal de
partment is expanding these days

Pennsylvania's War Governor Said Eleven
Years Ago We Would War With Spain.
Eleven years ago Pennsylvania's
war Governor, Andrew G. Curtin was
interviewed by a reporter on the seal
ing dispute between the United States
and Great Britain and the possibility
of a war resulting from it. He made
answer to the effect that this country
and Great Britain would never go to
war again, would settle their future
differences by arbitration.
Then the reporter said to him:
"Then you think the days of war for
this country are done away with, do
you, Governor ?"
"Now, I did not say that, nor do I
think that," replied the former Gov
ernor. "I believe and predict that
towards the end of this century the
United States will have a war on its
hands, but it will not be with Great
Britain, but with Spain, and the real
cause of the struggle will be Cuba.
Cuba should by all rights be a part
and parcel of this Government; or,
rather, a possession of the United
States with an independent govern
ment, but such a transposition of
affairs will never be brought about
without a war with Spain, and that is
bound to come. Mark my word for.
it. I may never live to see it. I hope
i won't. But you will."
One of the German newspapers,
commenting upon the reported inter
ference of the German gunboat Irene
at Subig bay. says: "But 1f the Irene
did hinder Aguinaldo's landing it is
no business of Dewey's." Well, prob
ably Dewey is not so sure about that,
j , and if Germany has any desire to re
ft tain her navy intact she will be a little
careful about probing around in the
rf vicinity of the Philippines just at
J present.
The bicycle lunatics appear to be
on the increase. A large party recent

miles in two days. Result, nine-tenths
of them were seriously disabled and
some probably permanently injured.

A Graphic Description of the
Greatest Naval Battle
of Modern Times
Washington, July 27.—The cabinet
discussed the report of Admiral Samp
eon and Commodore Schley on the de
struction of Cervera's fleet anl decided
that It should be made public this
The combined report, as stated here
tofore, includes those of Captain Evans,
Captain Taylor and Captain Clark,

them Is that they show no fraction
U. S. Flagship New York, First Rate.
Off Santiago de Cuba, July 15.
The Secretary of the Navy:
Sir: 1 have the honor to make the
following report upon the battle with
and the destruction of the Spanish
squadron commanded by Admiral Cer
vera off Santiago de Cuba, on Sunday,
July 3, 1538:
2. The enemy's vessels came out of
the harbor between 9.35 and 10 a. m.,
the head of the column and appear
ing around Car Smith at 9.31 and
emerging from the channel Ave or six
minutes later.
S. The positions of the vessels of my
command off Santiago at that moment
were as follows: The flagship New
York was four miles east of her block
ading station, and about seven miles
from the harbor entrance. She had
started from Siboney, where I Intended
to land, accompanied by several of my
staff, and go to the front and consult
with General Shatter. A discussion of
the situation and a more definite un
derstanding between us of hte opera
tions proposed had been rendered nec
essary by the unexpectedly strong re
sistance of the Spanish garrison of San
tiago. I had sent my chief of staff on
shore the day before to arrange an In
terview with General Shatter, who had
been suffering from heat prostration.
I made arrangements to go to his head
quarters and my flagship was in the
position mentioned above when the
Spanish squadron appeared In the 1
channel. The remaining vessels' were
in or near their usual blockading post- I
tlons. distributed In a semi-clrole about '
the harbor entrance, counting from the '
eastward to the westward in the fol
lowin gorder: The Indiana about a
mile and a half from shore; the Oregon
the New York's place between the two;
the lowa, Texas and Brooklyn, the lat
ter two miles from the shore west of
Santiago. The distance of the vessels
from the harbor entrance was from
two and one-half to four miles, the lat
ter being the limit of day blockading
distance. The length of the arc form
ed by the ships vu about eight miles.
The Massachusetts had left at 4 a. nt.
for Guantanamo for coal. Her station
was between tht lowa and Texaß. The
auxiliaries Gloucester and Viven lav
close to the land and nearer the harbor
entrance than the large vessels, the
Gloucester to the eastward and the
Vixen to the westward. The torpedo
boat Ericsson was In company with the
flagship and remained with her during
the chase until ordered to discontinue,
when she rendered very efficient ser
vice in rescuing prisoners from the
burning Vlrcaya. I Inclose a diagram
showing approximately the positions
of the vessels as described above.
4. The Spanish vessels came rapidly
out of the harbor at a speed estimated
at from eight to ten knots, and in the
following order: Infanta Maria Teresa,
flagship, Vlzeaya, Cristobal Colon and
the Almlrante Oquendo. The distance
between these ships was about 800
yards, which meanß that, from the time
the first one became visible In the up
per reach of the channel until the last
one was out of the harbor, an Interval
of only about twelve minutes elapsed.
Following the Oquendo, at a distance
of about 1,200 yards, oame the torpedo
boat destroyer Pluton and after her the
Furor. The armored cruisers, as rap-
Idly as they could bring their guns to
bear, opened a vigorous Are upon the
blockading vessels and emerged from
the channel shrouded In the smoke of
their guns.
5. The men of our ships In front of
the port were at Sunday "quarters for
Instruction." The signal wae male sim
ultaneously from several vessels, "The
Enemy's Ships Escaping," and general
quarters were sounded. The men
cheel-ed as they sprang to their guns,
and fire was opened probably within
eight minutes by the vessels whose
guns commanded the entrance. The
New York turned about and steamed
for the escaping fleet, flying the signal
"Close in toward harbor entrances and
attack vessels," and gradually Increas
ing speed, until toward the end of the
chase she was making sixteen and one
half knots and was rapidly closing In
on the Cristobal Colon. She was not,
at any time, within range of the heavy
Spanish ships, and her only part In the
firing was to receive the undivided fire
from the forts In passing the harbor
entranoe and to fire a few shots at one
of the destroyers, thought at that mo
ment to be attempting lo escape fr..m
the Gloucester.
6. The Spanish vessels upon clearing
the harbor, turned to the westward In
columu, Increasing jthelr speed to the
full power of their engines. The heavy
blockading vessels which had'closed In
toward the Morre at the Instant of the
enemy's appearance, and at their best
■peed, delivered a rapid fire, well sus
tained and destructive, which speedily
overwhelmed and silenced the Spanish
Ore. The initial speed of the Spaniards
carried them rapidly past the blookad-
Ing vessels, and the battle developed
Into a chase In which the Brooklyn snd
the Texas had at the start the advan
tage of position. The Brooklyn main
tained this lead. The Oregon, steam
ing at amazing speed from the com
mencement of the action, took first
place. The lowa and the Indiana, hav
ing done good work, and not having
the speed of the other ships, wers di
rected by me. In succession, st about
the time the Vlzcaya was beached, to
drop out of the chase and resume bloc
kading station. These vessels rescued
many prisoners. The Vixen, finding
that the rush of the Spanish ships
would put her between two fires, ran
outside of our column and remained
there during the battle and chase.
7. The skillful handling and gallant
fighting of the Oloucester excited the
admiration of everyone who witnessed
It. und merits the commendation of the
navy department. She Is a fast and
entirely unprotected auxiliary vessel--
the yacht Corsair—and has a good bat
tery of light rapid fire guns. She was
lying about two miles from the harbor
entrance, to the southward anl east
ward and Immediately steamed In, op
ening fire upon the largs ships. An
ticipating the appearance of the Pluton
and Furor, the Gloucester was slowed,
thereby gaining more rapidly In high
pressure of steam, and when the de
stroyers came out she steamed for
them at full speed and was able to closa
at short range, where her fire was ac
curate, deadly and of great volume.
During this fight the Gloucester was
under the fire of the Socapa battery.
Within twenty minutes from the time
they emerged from Santiago harbor the
careers of the Pluton and Furor were
ended, and two-thirds of their people
killed. Tile Furor was beached and
sunk in the surf; the Pluton sank In
deep water a few minutes later. The
destroyers probably suffered muoh In-
Jury from the fire of the secondary
batteries of the baittleshlps lowa,* Indi
ana and Texas, yet I think a very con
siderable factor in their speedy de
structioh was the fire, at close range,
of the Gloucester's battery. After res
ruing the survivors of the destroyers,
the Gloucester did excellent service In
landing and securing the crew of the
Infanta Maria Teresa.
8. The method of escape attempted
by the Spanlards--all steering in the
same direction and in formation—re
moved all taotical doubts of difficul
ties and made plain the duty of every
United States vessel to close In, Imme
diately engage and pursue. This was
promptly and effectively done. As al
ready stated the first rush of the Spa
nish squadron carried It past a number
of ithe blockading ships, which could
not Immediately work up to their best
speed. But they suffered heavily in
passing, and the Maria Teresa and the
Oquenlo were probably set on fire by
shells fired during the first fifteen min
utes of the • ng.agemcnt. It was after-
waids learned >tha't the Maria Teresa's
flremam had been cut by one of our
first shots, and that she was unable
to extinguish fire. With large volumes
of smoke arising from their lower decks
aft these vessels gave up both fight and
(light and'ran in on the beach--the Ma
ria Teresa about 10.15 a. m., at Nlma,
six and one-half miles fwrn
harbor entrance, . and the Oquemlo
about 10.S0 a. 111., at Juan Gouialets,
seven miles from the port v ,
9. The Vlzc.iya was still under tha
Rre of the leading vessels; the Cristo
bal Colon had drawn ahead, leading
the chase, and soon passed beyond the
range of the guns of the leading Am
erican ships. The Viscaya was soon
set on fire, and. at 11.15 she turnel In
shore and was beached at Azoerrade
ros, fifteen miles from Santiago, burn
ing fiercely, and with her reserves of
ammunition on deck already beginning
to explode. When about ten miles
west of Santiago, the Indiana had been
signalled to go back to the harbor en
trance, and at Aacerraderoa the lowa
was signalled to "lleaume blockading
station." The lowa, assisted by the
Ericsson and the Hist, took off the crew
r.f the Vizcaya, while the Harvard and
the Gloucester rescued those of the In
fanta Maria Teresa and the Almlrante
Dquendo. This rescue of prisoners, in
cluding the wounded from the burning
Spanish vessels, was the occasion of
some of the most daring and gallant
-conduct of the day. The ships were
burning fore and aft, their guns and
reserve ammunition wei-e exploring,
ind It was not known at what moment
the fire would reach the main maga
zines. In addition to this a heavy surf
was running just Inside of the Spanish
ships. But no risk deterred our offi
cers and men until their work of hu
manity was complete.
10. There remained now of the Spa
nish ships only the Cristobal Colon; but
she was their best and fastest veeeeL
Forced by the situation to hug the Cu
ban const her onl.v chance of escape
was by superior and sustained speed.
When the Vlacaya went ashore the
Colon was about six miles nhend of
the Brooklyn and the Oregon, but her
spurt was finished and the American
ships were now gaining upon her. Be
hind the Broklyn and the Oregon came
the Texas, Vixen and New York. It
was evidentfr om the bridge of the
New York that all the American ships
were gradually overhauling the chnso,
and that she hod no chance of escape.
At 12.60 the Brooklyn and Oregon op
ened fire and got her range—the Ore
gon's heavy shell striking beyond her
—and at 1.20 she gave up without fir
ing another shot, hauled down her col
ors and ran ashore at Rio Torqulno, 48
miles from Santiago. Captain Cook of
the Brooklyn went on board to receive
the surrender. While the boat was
alongside I came up In the New York,
received his report, and placed the Or
egon In charge of the wreck to save
her If possible, and directed the pris
oners to be transferred to the Resolute
which had followed the obase. Com
modore Schley, whose chief of staLff
had gene on board to receive the sur
render, had directed that all their per
sonal effects should be retained by the
officers. TWs order I did not modify.
s The object of the blockade of CJer
vera's squadron was fully accomplish
ed, and each Individual bore well his
part in it, the commodore In command
of the second division, the captains of
the ships, their officers and men.

Bell Telephone Company Wins an im
portant Suit.
Judge Buffington of the United
States circuit at Pittsburg on Tues
day handed dotvu an opinion to the
effect that the Carty Bridging
Bell patent is valid and ordering
that an injunction issue to restrain
certain persons from making further
use of this apparatus.
This opinion is regarded as of the
highest importance by capitalists
who have been thinking of investing
money in certain so-called indepen
dent telephone corporations, and,
of course, is of the utmost conse
quence to the telephone company
which has been almost invariably
successful in all of its suits brought
to defend patents for telephone ap
paratus from the first one invented
by Alexander Grayham Bell down
to the latest appliance.
Although the particular suit up
on which the decision of Judge
Buffington was based was apparent
ly so unimportant in the character
of some of the persons identified
with it as to seem almost humorous,
yet it has long been known in tele
phone circles that this suit was but
a test case designed to cover inter
ests and patents of importance equal
only to the patent covering Bell's
original invention and his later ap
paratus, the Berliner apparatus and
the double or multiple switch
boards which are absolutely essen
tial to the conduct of a telephone
business in populous communities.
