THE TEXAS IN BATTLE.
No vessel was more conspicuous
in the naval battle at Santiago than
the battleship Texas, under Captain
John W. Philip. Before her experi
ence in this war the Texas bad met
with so many accidents that she was
playfully 8ppkca of in the navy as a
hoodoo. There was really no test
of her serviceableness until the war
opened, and from the beginning she
has made a good record.
Captain Philp, a veteran of twenty
years' service, has taken great pride
in his ship, and when Admiral Cer
vera's fleet made an attempt to
break out of Santiago harbor the
Texas was among the very first ships
to get in action. Under direction
of Captain Philip ihe vessel was
from the first in the very center of
battle. She -fired heavy shot at
nearly every one of the escaping
Spanish vessels, and while she had
not as much speed as the Brooklyn
or the Oregon, she probably did as
much hard work as any of them, and
was in the fight to the very last.
The temper of Captain Philip was
shown when, at the close of the bat
tle, he asked his men to stand with
uncovered heads in recognition of
their i thankfulness to God for so
great a victory. This was an extra
ordinary scene to lake place on a
battleship, but it seems to have been
in keeping with the character of the
captain. After this the Texas will
not be counted as an unfortunate
ship, but as one of the most efficient
in the navy. It often happens that
when the test comes the verdict that
has been made up on insufficient
evidence is chaDgtd. The verdict
as to the Tcxass now stands on the
most indisputable evidence, that of
experience in battle.
The conjecture at Madrid that
Camara's squadron will neither go to
the Philippines nor return to Spain
may turn out to be correct. The
first part of it will undoubtedly be
correct. Camara will not go to the
Philippines. It is safe to assume
that he never had any intention of
going there: He' will keep several
thousand miles between ' himself and
Dewey's fleet. The guess that Ca
mara will not return to Spain is, of
course, based on the belief that he
fears Watson's fleet will sink him cr
bottleihim-up if he gets into any port
in Spain. Hence the policy of wis
dom suggests that Camara pass his
days in neutral waters until the war
ends. Thus, for the time, Camara
will be a man without a country
This is an ignoble role, but, on the
whole, Camara may think it has ad
vantages over that played by Mon
tojo or Cervera.
The scenes which mark the return
ot our wounded to Key West are,
of course, pathetic in the extreme;
but it is God's providence to the
poor fellows that their country has
been within such easy reach. One
of tne horrible possibilities of the
present war wts the danger that our
wounded might be left to swelter
ami die by inches in a Cuban camp,
far away from even the crudest com
forts. The medical arm of the gov
ernment has acted with admirable
promptness in bringing the wounded,
the sick and the convalescent to our
own shores, where everything that
love and science may suggest will be
done to relieve their sufferings.
President McKinley has been
quick to reccgnize the achievements
of the ar;my and navy commanders
in the present war. His telegram
have inspired officers and men alike.
The president's telegram to Admiral
Sampson expressed m a few words
the sentiments of the nation.
