Port Au Prince, Ilayti, May 14.
The Americfan fleet under Bear-Admiral
Sampson, bombarded Ban Juan
de Porto Rico today.
The bombardment began this morn
ing. Rear-Admiral Sampson, with
nine warships, arrived before San
Joan just before sunrise. At a signal,
the battle-ship Iowa fired the firBt
shot, whioh took effect.. The battle
ship Indiana then opened fire. In
jew minutes more, Morro lortfess was
reduced to a heap of ruins. The fort
made little effort to respond and was
silenced almost instantly.
The Spanish steamer Rita was cap
tured by the auxiliary oruiser Yale,
which took her crew on board.
Morro fired but three Bhota from her
lieavy gunB. There were but seven
&hot.s fired from the big guns of the
American squadron. These left Morro

were mute and her gunners killed or in

Spanish War Teasels Sighted Off Nan
New York, May 14. The British
steamer Menantio, which arrived yes
terday, reports that two torpedo-boats
were passed near Nantucket shoals yes
terday. Captain Mann said:
"At about 1 o'clock on the morning
of May 11, in latitude 40:50, longitude
68, a long, low-lying craft was seen ap
proaching under the shadows of the
Menantic's smoke. It came along rap
idly and was seen to be a torpedo-boat.
It flashed a light on us and crossed
under our stern, going to the east, and
fired a rocket, whioh was answered by
dot-ai)d-dash flashes. The night was
too dark to distinguish anything of the
nationality of the stranger.
"At daylight, about 20 miles east of
Nantucket south shoal lightship, an
other torpedo-boat was seen in the line
of the sun which dazzled the water too
much to make her out plainly. She
was of the destroyer class, and a very
large boat with a large funnel. Guns
were mounted on the bow. , bne ap
peared to be one of the recent English
type of torpedo-boat destroyers, and I
am sure there is no vessel of her class

The dispatch is evidently a few
days old and does not show that Dewey

he has received the last orders of the

General Merritt is the senior general in
the United States service after General
Miles, and in ordinary cases is entitled

his designation for this work may be

TORPEDO BOAT DAMAGED
Gunboats Wilmington and Hudson Were
In the Fight but M ere Uninjured
Dead and Wounded Taken to Key
West Caused by Carelessness.
Key West, May, 14. America's first
dead fell yesterday in a fierce and
bloody combat off Cardenas, on the
north coast of Cuba. Five men were
blown to pieces and five were wounded
on the torpedo-boat . Winslow. The
dead are: ' . '- ''- " '' L.-"-. . '

Four were wounded.
The battle lasted 85 minutes. It
was between the torpedo-boat Winslow,
the auxiliary tug Hudson and the gun
boat Wilmington on one side, and the
Cardenas batteries and four Spanish
gunboats on the other.
The Winslow was the main target of
the enemy, and was put out of service.
The other Ameican vessels were not
damaged, exoept that the Hudson's two
ventilators were slightly scrutohed by
flying shot ihe enemy's loss is largo'
ly conjeotural. One of their gunboats
caught fire and the men of the Hudson
think it sank. The fire spread to the
barracks and swept away several small
warehouses, and for a time the whole
waterfront seemed to be ablaze.
The Winslow was within 1,500 yards
of shore when the1 shells struck her,
How she came to bo eo close was told
by her commander, Lieutenant John B.
Bernadou. He said:
We were making observations when
the enemy opened fire on us. Ihe
Wilmington told us to go in and attack
the gunboats. We went in under full
steam and there is the result."
He was on the Hudson when he said
this and with the final words he point'
ed to a huddle of American flags on the
deck nearby. Under the Stars and
Stripes were outlined five rigid forms
The land batteries of Cardenas sup'
ported the fire of tbi Spanish gunboats.
The engagement commenced at 2:05
M., and lasted for about an hour. The
Wilmington and Hudson were ahead
and opened fire on the Spanish bouts
which were lying at the dock. The
firing began at a range of 8,500 yards
A few minutes later, the Winslow
came up ami also opened tore, in an
instant, the entire attention of the
Spanish gunboats and land batteries
was directed upon her. From all sides,
shot and shell poured in on the little
torpedo-boat The Wilmington and
Hudson still kept up their fire. The
crew of the Winslow never faltered for
a second. At 2:35, a solid shot crashed
into the hull of the Winslow and
knocked out her boiler. In a moment,
she began to roll and rock helplessly.
Then there was a moment of awful
suspense. A fierce cheer of triumph
went up from the Spanish on the gun
boats and in the batteries.
The storm of fire was continued upon
the helpless boat. The gunboat Hud
son, lying near by, started to the as
sistance of the Winslow. After about
20 minutes, the Hudson approached
near enough to throw a line. Ensign
Ragley and six men were standing in a
group on the deck of the Winslow
ready to catch a rope. A line was
thrown, and at about the same instant
a shell burst in the very midst of the
group of men on board the Winslow.
Bagley was instantly killed and a few
others dropped about him. Half a
dozen more men fell groaning on the
blood stained deck. One of the men
plunged headlong over the side of the
boat, but his feet caught in an iron
rail, and be was hauled back. Bagley's
body was stretched on deck, with his
face completely torn away, and the
upper part of his body shattered.
When the shell burst, another wild
shout of triumph went up from the
Spanish boats and batteries, and again
a heavy fire was opened on the torpedo
boat Finally, the Hudson succeeded in
getting a line on board the Winslow,
and was towing her out of the deadly
range when the line parted and again
both boats were at the mercy of the

On Board the Flagship Iowa, off San

enemy's loss in the attack by part of
Sampson's fleet on the forts of San Juan
is believed to be heavy. The American
loss is two men killed and seven men
After three' hours' firing, the ad

Spanish fleet, and not for San Juan."
The men killed were:

Of the injured men, three were on
the Iowa and four on board the New
York. The names of those slightly in

Mitchell, Private Marine Merkle, Ap

York: Seaman Samuel Feltman, seri
ously; Seaman Michael Murphy.
The four above-named were injured
by the bursting of a shell on the New
York. This is a complete liBt of the
killed and wounded.
The American ships are uninjured.
The engagement began at 5:15 A. M.
and ended at 8:1$ A. M. The enemy's
batteries were not silenoed. , The town
in the rear of the fortifications probably
suffered. The ships taking part in the
action were the Iowa, Indiana, New
York, Terror, Amphitrite, Detroit,
Montgomery, Waumpautuck and' Porter.
The enemy's firing was heavy, but
wild,; and the Iowa and New Xork
were' probably the only ships hit.
They went right up'under the' guns in
column, delivering broadsides and then
returned. They passed in front of the
forts, pouring tons of steel on shore. It
is impossible to judge, the amount of
damage done to the buildings and forts.
They appeared to be riddled with shot,
but the Spaniards were plucky. ' "
The after-turret of the Amphrite got
out Of order temporarily during the en
gagement, but she banged away with
her forward guns.
After the first passage before the
forts, the Detroit and Montgomery re
tired, their guns being too small to do
much damage. The Porter and Waum
pautuck also stayed out of range.
The smoke hung over everything,
spoiling the aim of the gunners and
making it Impossible to tell where our
shots struck. The officers and men of
the ships behaved with coolness and
bravery. The shots flew thick and
fast over all our ships.
The men who were hurt during the
action were injured by splinters thrown
by an eight-inch shell, which came
through a boat into the superstructure,
and scattered fragments in all direc
tions. The shot's oonrse was finally
ended on an iron plate an inch thick.
Merkle was struck in the arm and may
lose it. ' A' fire was started in the boat,
but was quickly extinguished.

The Iowa was hit eight times, but
the shells made no impression on her
armor. The weather was fine, bet the
heavy swells made accurate aim diffi
cult The broadsides from the Iowa
und the Indiana rumbled in the hills
inshore five minutes after they were
delivered. Clouds of dust showed
where the shells struck, but the smoke
hung over everything.
The shells screeching overhead and
dropping around showed that the Span
iards still stuck to their guns.
At 7:45 A. M., Admiral Sampson
signaled "cease firing." "Return"
was sounded on the Iowa, and she
headed from the shore. The Terror
was, the last ship In the line, and, fail
ing to see the signal, she banged away
alone for about half an hour, the con
cert of shore guns roaring at her and
the water flying high around her from
the exploding shells. But she pos
sessed a charmed life, and reluctantly
retired at 8:15.

OREGON'S SUGAR INDUSTRY.
The Trans-MlssiBslppl Fair Will Un
doubtedly Give It Great Impetus.
A proposition on foot at the Omaha
Trans-Mississippi fair this summer
which is of vital interest to Oregon
farmers. Is the manufactuie of sugar,
illustrated by a plant in operation on
the ground. The complete process, it
is said, will be il'ustrated and all
grades of the staple article will be
made in plain sight of spectators.
In connection with this project, ac
tive interest has been manifested by
the Oregon commissioners. Special
representatives of the commission have
visited the Grande Ronde valley and
the Willamette valley, and have ac
quainted those interested with the plan
for showing the progress made in late
years at utilizing the most plebian
looking plant known to the agricul
turist In a general way it is stated the sub
eot of sugar beet growing will be treat
ed from the time the seed is planted
until the orop is matured and will be
Arrangements have been made to
demonstrate at the fair that Oregon's
wondefully fertile soil Is especially
adapted to the growing of the beet,
and that if capital in the middle west-
em states is seeking an outlet in this
promising industry, Oregon offers the
best advantages and every inducement
to come here. It will be the purpose
of those in charge of Oregon's exhibit
to explain what has been done for the
industry at La G-rande and to show
that Willamette farmers will do the
same for a factory here.
The agricultural college faculty,
which has enlisted its support in a
gratifying way, will arrange complete
exuibit of Oregon soils with scientific
analysis. This will be displayed In the
horticultural building at Omaha and
all queries relating to soil and crops
will be answored In a most complete
and satisfactory manner,.- Whatever
shall be accomplished for Oregon at the
Trans-Mississippi fair will be praotical,
as the commissioners have had that
end in view in all they have under
taken to do.
R. D.Tnman, of Portland, who is
largely interested in working fox the
success of the Oregon display, says that
he Is satisfit-d that the Omaha exposi
tlon is to be a great success and ' that
Oregon will reap beneficial results in
greater proportion from the .fact that
the exposition city lies In the path of
thousands bound westward after gold
or a home this season. It is ' nearer
home and the attendance at the fair
will be drawn from all the trans-Mis-
aissippi states and the East. , If the
Paoifio coast states want more people
to settle in their borders, additional
capital and fresh industries, Mr. Inmnn
most heartily believes this is the time
to let the world hear from us. Too
much cannot be done for immigration
for upon future immigration depend

The advantages to be derived from th
advertising which every section of the
state will receive there this year, seem
to be clearly realized. The advan

WEEKLY MARKET LETTER.
Trade Conditions In the Leading Cities
of the World.
fReported by Downing, Hopkins & Co., Inc.,
Board ol Trade Brokers, 711 to 714 Chamber of
Commerce building, Portland, Oregon.
A combination of circumstances has-
been at work to make Leiter's position
in wheat comparatively easy. Supplies
the world over are light, and the foreign
stocks are in such a condition that
France and Italy have been forced to
takeoff their import duty of 87c. Spain
has prohibited exports and imports and
Germany and Austria are considering
the advisability of removing or reduc-
ng their Import duty, Admitting that
supplies are low and the price of bread
everywhere is high, flour being up to $7
per barrel, the question arises, does the
real condition of supply and demand
warrant 'an advance of 40o to 53c a
bushel in the leading markets in a week?
If so it must be admitted that prises
have been too low ror months. If there
is not manipulation behind it Short
sellers are chiefly responsible for the
advance, but, even taking into consid
eration the light stocks in store in Eu
rope, there is no sonqd argument in tha
supply and demand theory, to sustain
11.70 for wheat here, when it is consid
ered that over 40,000,000 bushels are
afloat for Europe, against 17,000,000
bushels a year ago.' If all other grains,
were equally scarce, there might be
sound argument in the assertion that
wheat was "worth fancy prices. Specu
lation , !s more responsible for these
prices than the aotual demand, as values
are up to a famine point, and higher
than during the wild speculation that
prevailed at the time of and following
the dose of thecjvil war, allowing for
the premium on gold. One dollar and
