Calls for Thanksgiving.
Washington, July G. President
McKinley, at 11:40 tonight, issued the
following proclamation to the Amer
To the People of the United States
of America: A.t this time, when to
the yet fresh remembrance of the un
precedented success which attended
the operations of the United States
fleet in the bay of Manila on the 1st
day of May last are added the tidings
of the no less glorious achievements
of the naval and military arms of our
beloved country at Santiago de Cuba,
it is fitting that we should pause and
staying the feelings of exultation that
too naturally attend great daeds
wrought by our countrymen in our
country's cause should reverently bow
before the throne of Divine Grace and
give devout praise to God, Who
holdeth the nations in the hollow of
His hand and worketh upon them the
marvels of His high will, and Who
has thus far vouchsafed to us the light
of His face and led our brave soldiers
and seamen to victory.
I therefore ask the people of the
United States, on next assembling for
divine worship in their respective
places of meeting, to offer thanks
giving to Almighty God, who, in His
inscrutable ways, now leading our
hosts upon tho waters to unscathed
triumph; now guiding them in a
strauge land through the dread shad
ows of death to success, even though
at a fearful cost; now bearing them
without accident or loss to far distant
climes, has watched over our cause
and brought nearer the success of the
right and the attainment of just and
With the nation's thanks let there
be mingled tho nation's prayers that
our gallant sons may be shielded from
harm alike on the battlefields and in
the clash of fleets, and be spared the
scourge of suffering and disuse while
they are striving to uphold their
country's honor; and withal let the
nation's heart be stilled with holy awe
at the thought of the noble men who
have perished as heroes die, and De
filled with compassionate sympathy
for all those who suffer bereavement
or enduro sickness, wounds Hnd bonds
by reason of tho awful struggle.
And above all let us pray with
earnest fervor that He, tho dispenser
of all good, may speedily remove from
us tho untold nlllictions of war and
bring to our dear land tho Housings of
restored peace and to all tho domain
now ravaged by tho eruol j-trifo tho
priceless boon of security and tran
quillity. William McKinley.

BIO DEMAND TPS STAI.IT3.
ff.viino Collector KHtiimito 1'lkr?o
Months' Supply at 400,000,000.
Washington, July 2. It was stated
at the internal revenue bureau that
fewer complaints of inability to get tho
new revenue stamps were received yes
terday than were expected. The requi
sitions of tho collectors for an estimated
three months' supply amounted to
about 400,000,000 stamps. These requi
sitions have been honored to tho amount
of over 200,000,000, and other shipments
will bo made as rapidly as possible. In
a number of cities large crowds are ro
jiorted as standing in line at the col
lector's office waiting to purchase
stamps, but no seri' inconvenience or
trouble has-been reputed so far. There
seems to bo some danger that the sup
ply in the hands of the collectors will
bo exhausted before renewals can be se
cured, but the bureau of engraving and
printing and the internal revenue forces
will work night and day as long as the
situation seems to require, and before
tho middle of next week everyone, it is
expected, will havo an ample supply to
meet all demands.

Anxiety at the V:ir lt part tuoiit.
"Washington, July 2. The profound'
est concern throughout military and of
ficial circles marked the opening of tin
second day upon which tho battle of
Santiago is being fought. The desp.-rate
character of the fighting is now fully
known at the war department. The in
formation is m addition to too report
made by General Shatter last midnight,
when he roughly estimated his casual
ties at abovo 400. Litter reixnts, offi
cially direct from the lield, indicate that
this estimate was far too low. General
Shafter had cot, up to 11 o'clock this
morning, placed any exac t figure on his
loss, but he made it clear that his lu-.st
estimate at 400 was much short of the
actual loss. Tho Associated Press dis
patches from the field give the casualties
at about 1,000 and it is in line with Gen
eral Shafter's later intimation, -although,
as stated, he has set no figure.
Young Halstead ISaclly Hurt.
Washington, July 2. Griffin Hal
stead, one of tho speediest racing cyclists
in this district, met with a serious acci
dent while making an attempt to lower
the quarter-mile paced record. A
triplet that was pacing him accidentally
crowded Halstead with terrific force
into the fence on tho turn. Halstead
struck the railing head down and was
hurled backward on the embankment.
It was found that Halstead's front teeth
were all broken off, his gums cut, a
long gash in his chin, arms, legs and
back severely lacerated and bruised and
that he was otherwise badly injured.
It is doubtful whether or not Halstead
will ever race again. Halstead is a son
of Hon. Murat Halstead and is chief
page in the house of representatives.
