Oft Santiago, via Kingston, July 11.
The i e turn of Assistant Naval Con
structor Hobson to his ship, the flag
ship New. York, was marked by wild
enthusiasm. When Hobson sat once
more among his messmates, he told the
story of his experience, his marvelous
escape and his imprisonment in Morro
"I did not mias the entrance to the
harbor," he said, "as Ensign Powell,
in the launch, supposed. I headed east
until I got straight in. Then came the
firing. It was grand, flashing out from
. one side, then the other, from those
big guns on the hills, the Vizcnya, ly
ing inside the harbor, joining in.
Troops from Santiago had rushed
down when the news of the Mammae's
coming was telegraphed, and soldiers

as she got to Estrella point. Only
three of the torpedoes on her side ex
ploded when I touched the button. A

amidships, hurling water high in the
air and tearing a great rent hi the Mer

"Chiefly owing'to the work done by
the mine, she began to sink slowly.
At that time she was across the chan

Shells and bullets whistled around us.
The six-inch shells from the Vizoaya
came tearing into the Monimao, crash

clear through, while the plunging shots
from the forts broke through her decks.
" 'Not a man must move,' I said,
Cubans Showed No Mercy to the Span
Before Santiago, via Kingston, July
11. One secret of the determination
of the Spanish soldiery in Santiago to
fight to the death was the belief which
prevailed generally among them that
prisoners taken by the Americans
would be put to the sword.
It is known that after the fall of El
Gauey July 1 the Spanish soldiers who
escaped along the foothills marched
directly into . General Garcia's men,
posted to tho north of Santiago. They
fought desperately, but were shown no
meicv bv the Cubans, and were ma-
cheted to the last man. General Del
rine, who was in command, was bru
tally mutilated. The knowledge of
this massacre found its way into Santi
ago and prompted the Spaniards to die
rather than surrender.
The voluntary surrender of some of
the wounded Spanish officers and men
has dispelled the delusion, and is help
ing to induce General Total to consider
the proposition to capitnlate. ;
After the fall of El Gauey the Cu
bans sacked the town. Information of
the two outrages were promptly sent to
General Shatter, who issued orders
that any Cuban found rifling the bodies
of dead or wounded snaniaras wouw
be promptly dealt with.
To prevent the possibility of Cubans
plundering Santiago when it capita
lates it has been decided to forbid the
Cubans entering the town.

Halifax, N. S., July EL In one of
the thick fogs which at this time of
the year hang like a pall ova the
grand banks and Sable island in the
North Atlantic, occurred early Monday
morning one of ' the most appalling
ocean disasters in the annals of trans
Atlantio commerce, and in faot in the
history of steam sailing of the world.
Almost without a moment's warning
the French liner La Bourgogne, with
725 souls on board, was run down by
tie iron sailing ship Cromartyshire,
and sunk within half an hour, carrying
with hei to the ocean's bottom over 500
of ber passengers and crew, white the
rest who were not drowned by the fear
ful suction straggled and fought for life
until 163 were at length rescued by tht
crew of the Cormartyshlre, which ship
survived the collision.
If the words of the passengers who
were dragged aboard the Cromartyshire
and later brought into this port by the
steamer Grecian, are to be believed, the
last few minutes on board the La Bour
gogne witnessed some of the most ter
rible Ecenes of horror and cruelty that
have blotted the history of a civilized
race. Instead of the heroic discipline
which so often has been the one bright
feature of such awful moments, the
crew of the steamer fought like demons
for the few lifeboats and rafts, batter
ing the helpless passengers away from
their only means of salvation, with the
result that the strong overcame the
weak, for the list of 168 eaved contains
the name ot but one woman.
The disaster occurred at 6 o'clock
rn the morning, Monday, about 60
miles south of Sable island, which lies
nearly 100 miles off this port. The
Bouryogne had left New York, bound
for Havre, on the previous Saturday,
while the Cromartyshire was on its
way from Glasgow with a crew of 21
men. ' Although the trans-Atlantic
ships have a definite course, the Bour
gogne was, by all accounts, 40 miles or
more to the north Of these lines. The
fog' was very dense and the Cromarty
shire was sailing along with reduced
canvas and blowing the fog horn.
Suddenly out of the fog rushed a great
steamer, and in a moment there was a
fearful crash, the iron prow of tho ship
plunging into the port side "of the
steamer, just under the bridge. Tbo
shock was terrific, and tore a tremen
dons hole in the steamer, while tlx
entire bow of the ship was demolished.
Half an hour after the collision the
misty curtain went up, giving a clear
view for miles, and then it was that
those on the Cromartyshire realized the
fearful struggle for life on board the
Bourgogne, the collision having come
so suddenly and at such a time in the
morning that few besides her crew were
on deck, but the shock roused nearly
everyone, and within a low minutes
the docks were crowded. .
At first it seemed as if there was
some attempt at disoipline. A few of
the boats were swung off and some of
the passengers allowed to get into them,
but as the steamer began to tremble
and list to port, the officers loBt control
of the crew, and a panic ensued.
Passengers and new fought for the
boats and life rafts, the strong battered
down the weak, the women and chil
dren being pushed far away from any
hope ot rescue. Fists, oars and even
knives were used by some of tha demons
to keep their places. .
The offioers seem to have been pow
erless over their men, and only four
weie saved. The fight for life on the
decks of the steamer did not last long.
for in a little more than a half hour she
gave a long lurch to port ana went
down. . -
As the ship sank beneath the surface,
the vortex of the water tucked down
everything on the eufaoe within a cer
tain radius. When the suction ceased.
those still alive saw about 200 bodies
come out of the water with a rush, as
if the sea were giving up the dead,
after having swallowed the ship.
But the struggle for life still contin
ued after the ship went down. Hun
dreds still floated about grasping tor
rafts, boats and wreckage, in frantic
endeavors to keep above water. Even
then many of those in the boats, If the
stories told are to be believed, showed
their brutality by beating off those who
attempted to climb aboard.
By this time the small boats of the
Cromartyshire bad come up, and the
work of rescue began. The crew of the
ship saved everyone wlto kept afloat
But one woman was rescued.
Commodore Watson Has Been Ordared
to Start at Once.
Washington, July 9. The presideni
cnlled a council ot war to meet at the
White House, the purpose being to re
view the situation and learn exactly
what the present conditions are and
what changes, if any, should be made
in the plans for the conduct of the
war. According to one of the members
present, it was decided to abide by the
plans already laid, at least as to the
general conduct of the campaign.
Confirmation seemed to have been
given to this statement later in the
day, when, after a conference with the
members of the war board, Secretary
Long announoed to the waiting news
paper men that he had ordered Admiral
Sampson to detach from his own com
mand immediately the vessels to be
embiaced in Commodore Watson's

commodore to proceed on his mission.

No prisoners have been turned over to

This week's information in regard to
the evidenoe of yield of winter wheat
are confirmatory of the previous indica
tions of disappointing results, although)
no special new developments have been
added. The spring wheat crop in thai
Northwest is not particularly changed
in general promise in comparison witlt
the situation a week ago. There ap
pears to be some tendency in the winter
wheat regions, where serious disap
pointment in yield have arisen, to
take a too gloomy view of conditions.
The fact is the crop never justified the
extravagant estimates which were freely
promulgated a few weeks ago.
In the Chicago wheat market the sit
uation of prices for new crop deliveries
does not vary much in comparison
with a week ago. The reoent embar
rassment to the trade from conditions
incident to manipulation are olearimt
away, the new crop will De in urgent
demand, and sellers apparently will ba
tardy in offering on the basis ot current
values, so theie is increasing ground for
the belief that chances for a strength
ening tendency of values as a prevailing
condition in the early part of the crop
year, whatever may happen later.
