Alive With the Don
Steam Launches' Have
No Suitable Place Found for
Transports Have Not Arrived ;With
Off Santiago De Cuba, June 18,
10 a, m., via Kingston, Jamaica, Sun
day, 4 p. -11. Several attempts to find
landing places for the United States
troops within a distance of two miles
west ot Santiago have determined,
with previous Inquiries to the east
ward, that the shore for fifteen miles
is lined with Spaniards. While this
will not prevent a landing close to
Santiago, it may entail considerable
delay, as the surrounding country
must be thoroughly shelled and
cleared before the troops can land in
When Bear-Admiral Sampson
received advices that upward of 30
transports would be here today (Sat
urday), he sent word that they should
stand to the south 10 miles
and Ho there until a 'landing
place had been secured
Yesterday, at duyllghtftho launches
of the New York and Massachusetts
reconnoitercd the shore between Ca
banas, two miles westward of the en
trance to Santiago harbor, and
Guayanacoa, two miles further west,
both of which points He ease of the
rangeof mountains surrounding San
The launches pushed their noses
Into a hornet's nest. The brusn was
fairly alive with Spanish troops of In
fantry and cavalry, and the fire
opened upon the launches was so fierce
that their retreat had to be covered
by the Vixen and Texas.
When the Texas asked permission
of Commodore Schley to take a hand,
the commodore shouted to Captain
Phillips. "Yes. go in and give 'em,
The Texas landed four 12-inch
shells on the battery at Cabanas,
completely demolishing it.
Lieutenant Sharpe, of the VIxon,
and IlarlOjY, in command ot the
launches, were both complimented by
Admiral Sampson for gallantry.
It Is believed the insurgents, who
are in force and under the command
of General Garcia about 15 miles
distant, will render effective aid In
driving the Spanish off shore.
The following Is the abstract of
Lieutenant Ilarlow's report to the
commander ot the Vixen, dated Juno
"The expedition consisted ut a
steam launch from the Massachu
setts, In charge of Cadet Hart, and a
launch from the New Ycrk.lo charge
of Cadet Powell. 1 took passage on
the Massachusetts' launch, leading
the way. Soundings were taken on
entering the bay close under the old
fort, and we were preparing to clr-

MAdTJlRE & TEATZ,
It speaks (or iUK
cumnavlgate at fnll speed, when fire
was opened from the fort and rocks
on shore. The Massachusetts' launch
was some distance ahead, and about
40 yards off the fort. There was no
room to turn and our one-pounder
could not be brought to bear. We
backed and turned under a heavy fire,
"Cadet Hart operated the gun as
soon as It could bo brought to boar,
sitting exposed In the bow and work
ing the gun as cooly and as carefully
as if at target practice. Cadet Powell
had been firing since the Spaniards
opened. lie also was perfectly cool.
Both launches ran out under heavy
tire. The number of Spaniards along
the shore was large. Tuo launches, as
soon as was practicable, sheered, to
give the Vixen the range of the fort.
The VlXbn and Texas silenced the
shore fire promptly.
"I strongly commond Cadet Hart
and Cadet Powell for their cool man
agement of tbo launches. One launch
was struck several times. Nobody on
either was hurt. A bullet struck a
shell at Cadet Hart's feet, but failed
to explode it,
"Coxswain O'Donncll and Seaman
Bloom are commended, as also Is the
coolness with which the marines and
sailors withstood the Spanish fire.
"Nothing was learned at Cabanas
bay, but at Guayanacoa it is evident
a landing Is practicable for ship's
boats. Tho same Is truo ot Banco
Cruz, a small bay to tho eastward. I
am Informed that to tho north and
westward of Cabanas bay there is a
a largo clearing, with plenty ot
ground, igrass and water. I think a
simultaneous landing at tho three
places named would bo practicable, It
tho ships shell tho adjacent woods. A
Junction would naturally follow at
Movement of Troops.
A special train consisting of twelvo
coaches transporting 312 Minnesota
troops to San;Francl8co,cnrouto to the
Philippines, passed through Salem al
4 a. m. Sunday. Attached to tho
overland last avenlng was a Pullman
tourist car containing 27 stalwart
young volunteers, who are enrouto to
Mamla,there to recruit the companies
of the Second Beglment, Oregon Vol
unteers, to their maximum strength
of 100 men each. Tho volunteers were
easily distinguished from tho other
passengers, by reason of the "fever
caps" that were presented them by
tbo Portland Emergency Corps and
which they jokingly christened "gov
ernment night-caps." Tbo volunteers
wore citizens clothing and will not
recelyo their uniforms and accoutre
ments until they reach San Francisco.
They were In charge of Private John
Teesdalo and were enjoying them
selves very much. They were greoted
by fully 200 Salemltcs at tho depot
and as tbo train pulled out they
were lustily cheered. Portland's quota
In the second call for troops was 128
and as soon as a company of them pass
the medical examination they are
immediately dispatched to San Fran
cisco in 6quads. The recruiting
officers In the metropolis expect to
baye the desired 128 recruits and have
them enrouto to Manila by Thursday
of this week. Among the recruits
passing through Sunday evening was
Ted Burton, at McCoy, well known in
this city. He will Join the Salem boys
In Company K. As the train started
one enthusiastic volunteer shouted
"We'll all be with Dewey."

via Kingston, Jamaica. Cuban scouts
report that tho Inhabitants of Calm
anera havo strewn tho streots with
straw nnd oil, with tho Intention of
destroying tho city and fleeing to tho
hills. Caimanera lies four miles up
tho bay from Camp McCalla, under
tho guns of tho American ships, and
tho situation Is desperate, Starving

ultimate triumph of tho American

The scouts declare that tho story Is
accurate, and say that every building
of the town Is being rapidly prcpurcd
for tho toroh.
Tho situation of tho besieged Is fear

and mules and are scouring tho hills
for fruits and herbs. Occasionally
brief bombardments by tho tho
American fleet leavo the helpless cit

for defense being made. It is also
stated that the Spanish gunboat at
Caimanera has been loaded (with in
flammables, and will bo burned with

that Bhe will never become an Amer
The scouts also say the Sr,anlsh
soldiers aro In almost us complete a

reported Spanish route. They re

and guerrillas on Camp McCalla Is
contemplated within a night or two.
Preparation was made for an assault.
When the Associated Press dispatch
boat Dandy arrived in Ounn tanamo,
the hills about the marine camp were
brilliant under the shifting ray of
the searchlights of tiie Marblcbead,
Dolphin and Scorpion, and tho
marines were lying in therlflcplts, at
Mm guns, ready and anxious for battle,
but the night pascd without tho
filing of a shot.
The greatest care wus exercised as
Captain McCalla Is convinced that an
attack Is likely to occur at any time.

morning and later the ad aural came

Tho coast in the vicinity ot Quan

Cuban flags. Numerous camps of
Insurgents havo been established
along tho boach between Santiago
and this place, and are-used by theni
for communication with tho Cubans
In tho Interior. Tho Information
which these men havo glvon has
proven highly valuablo to the Amor

of the Spanish forces hero, is undoubt
edly desperate In regard to obtaining
food for his men. The prisoners who
havo been captured appear to havo
been HI fed and apparently Indiffer

A batch of Spaniards was captured
by Ensign Pratt, of the Marblehead.

outside tho bay, ho picked up a 40
foot sloop, containing a Spanish
captain and four sailors. They Bald
they were on their way to Qauntan

papers found on the sloop proved that

The marines aro growing restless,
owing to tho delay in tho arrival ot
tho troops, but It isgonorally believed
here that tho transports will reach
Santiago not later than Monday,
A rumor to the effect that Lieu
tenant Jobson and his fellow citizens
had been seen on tho walls ot Morro
castle under a Spanish guard caused
much excitement among the fleet, but
tho story Is discredited on Commodore

that Spanish sentries were mistaken

canvassing board, this morning begaa
the re-count of the Marion couutj-vota
for tho judgeship. A re-count la
necessary to determine the contest
recently Instituted by P. IT. D'Arcy,
one of the Union candidates for this
ofilce. From tho returns at hand
from the counties in this district Mr,
Boise has a majority of 34 over Mr.
D'Arcy. It Is possible the official
count may reveal some mistake that
will alter tho figures now atrhand.
Tho board had not proceeded far
until it was discovered that the tally
sheet from Woodbqrn precinct waa
missing. County Clerk L. V. Eulen,
having gono to Portland this morn-
lng, tho whereabouts of the missing
tally-sheet could not bo ascertained,
and tho work of counting the votes
was postponed until 0 o'clock this eve
ning by which time County Clerk
Ehlcn will havo returned from the
Justice Hayes of Woodburo one ot
tho board of canvassors. was Been this
afternoon by a Journal reporter and
from him It waa learned that when
tho board completed Its labors last
Tuesday morning und was ready for
adjournment, tho tally-sheets from
all tho county precincts had beea
placed In tho ofllco of County 'Clerk
L. Y. Ehlcn. Wbllo In the .county
courtroom, Mr. Hayes, claims that
the Woodburn tally-sucet was brought
Into tho room and looked over by Col.
N. B. Knight, a Salem attorney, awl
W. T. ItlRdon. While they were look
ing over the sheet, Mr. Hayes ad Mr.

W. T. JQIgdon with two or three otUer,
parties in tho room and In poseselos
Of tbo missing tally-sheet. This was
the last scon of the sheet. Mr. Eblert
Is expected homo from Portland to
night when tho whereabouts of the
tally.sheot can probably be learned.
The Woodburn tally-sheet was
the most poorly kept of the entire
county. Tuo canviisslng board has al
ready discovered about SJO mistakes in
recounting tho vote of that precinct.
A mistake or 10 votes in favor pat
