Political, matters are beginning to

counted that they are not cutting much
ice in the republican ranks.
Some people, who ought to know
their names were a stench in the nos
trils of good republicans, are wasting
lots of time plotting and putting up
jobs to control tho piimaries, when, as
a matter of fact, they will have no
moro to do with those who go as dele
gates than the Akund of Swatt.
When the republican ex-tjoss took
charge of Mat Gering's political for
tunes, tho young- man with a big voice
felt at once that he was not only nomi
nated, but his election was assured at
the same time. It is well that he
should enjoy the victory (?) now, a he
wont be able t enjoy it later on.
Caul Schukz, in a let er printed in
a German newspaper, informs his fel

will stand by their
adopted country: "its friends are their
friends, and its enemies are their
eoemies." There has never been a
doubt on this subject in the United
States. There are no more loyal citi
zens than our German citizens. If any
misconception on this subject exists
in Germany or elsewhere it cannot be

Blanco's voice is loud for war. It

his wants could be speedily attended

now urges continuance of tho war
when his people are starving and their
loss from American shot and shell
will be something terrible. It looks
like murder rather than war surround

bard that city which, ought to have
surrendered several days ago.

Off SAvn.vio Dk Cu-a, July 7. (Per
dispatch boat, via Port Antonio) July
9. The hattleship Iowa was the first
ship to see the Spanish fleet coming out
of t lie harbor. i
Somebody on the "bridge slioxited:
"What's that black thing coming out of
the harbor?" j
A moment later the Iowa was at geu- j
oral quarters and tbe signal was hoisted
that the ( nemys ships were coming out.
A gun was fired to attract tho atteution
of the fleet.
"l ighting Bol" Evans, commander
of the Iowa, was sitting in his cabin
talking to Irs son, a cadet on the Massa
chusetts, who lucidly had been left be
hind in a picket launch when the
Massachusetts went to Guantanamo to
coal at dawn. Captain Evans' account
of the battle, as told in the cabin of the
Iowa to a correspondent of tho Associ
ated Press, is intensely interesting. Ho
"At the time 'general quarters' were
Founded, the engine bell rang "full speed
ahead,' and I put the helm to starboard
the Iowa and cio-syd the bows of the
Infanta Maria Teresa, the first ship
out. The Spanish ship swung to the
westward, the 12-iiich shells from the
forward turret of the Iowa seemed to
tdrike him in t he bow and tho fight was
a spectacle. The squadron came out in
column, the ships beautifully spaced, as
to distance and gradually increasing
their speed to lo knots. It was superb.
The Iowa from this moment kept up a
steady fire from her heavy guns, head
ing all the time to keep the Infanta
Maria Teresa on her starboard bow and
hoping to ram one of the ships. The
Oregon, Indiana, Brooklyn and Texas
were doing excellent work with their
"l.i a very short space of time the
enemy's shii;s wei all clear of the har-
bor mouth and it bet-am-.; evident! jr im-pos.-ihle
IV r the Iowa to ram. either the
first or the second ship on account of
their speed. The range at this time
was 2,Oi)o yards. The Iowa's helm was
immediately put hard to the starboard
and the entire starboard broadside was
poured into tho Infanta Maria Teresa.
The helm was then quickly shifted to
port and the ship went across the stern
of the Teresa in an effort to head off the
Oqitendo. All the time the engines
were driving at full speed ahead. A
perfect torrent oi" shells from the enemy
pas-od over the smokestacks and super
structure of the shin, but none struck
Cotin nit Die Iowa.
"The Cris.-ebal Colon being much
faster than the rest of the Spanish
ships passed rapidly to the front in an
effort to escape. In passing the Iowa
the Colon placed two six-inch shells
fairly on our starboard bow. One
passed through the coffer dam and dis
pensary, wrecking the latter and burst
on the berth deck. The other passed
through the side at the water line
within the coffer dam, where it still re
mains. As it was now obviously im
possible to ram any of the Spanish ships
on account of their superior speed, the
Iowa's helm was put to starboard and
she ran on a course parallel with the
enemy. Being then abreast of the
Oqtieudo, at a distance of 3,100 yards,
the Iowa's entire battery, including the
rapid lire guns, was opened on the
Oquendo. The punishment was terrific.
Many 12 and S-inch shells were seen to
explode inside of her, and smoke came
out through her hatches. Two 12-iuch
shells from the Iowa pierced the Almir
aute Oquendo at the same moment, one
forward and the other aft. The
Oquendo seemed to stop her engines for
a moment, she immediately started and
gradually drew ahead of the Iowa, and
came under the terrific fire of the Ore
gon and Texas.
Tm pc il lioat Alarm.
"At this moment the alarm of 'tor
pedo boats' was sounded and two tor
pedo boat destroyers were discovered in
the starboard quarters at a distance of
4,000 y:rds. 1 Ire was opened on them
with the after battery and a 12-inch
shell cut the stern of one destroyer
sanarely off. As the shell struck she
fired back at us, sending a shell close to
my head. I said to Executive Officer
Rogers, "That little chap has got a lot
of check.' Rogers shouted back, 'She
shoots very well, all the same.' Well
up among the advancing cruisers, spit
ting shots at one and then another, was
the little Gloucester, shooting first at a
cruiser and then at a torpedo boat and
hitting a head wherever she saw it.
The marvel was that she was not de
stroy!, d by t he rain cf shells. In the
meant iine tlio Vizcaya was slowly
drawing abeam, r f the Iowa and for the
space of 15 minutes it was give and take
between the two. The Yizcaya fired
rapidly but wildly, not one shot taking
effect on tlio Iowa, while the shells from
the Iowa were tearing great rents in the
sides of the Viaya. As the latter
passed abend of the Lwa she came un
der the murderous lire of the Oregon.
UrailfU l'.ir Hie I -arti.
"At this time the Infanta Mari?e
Teresa and the Almiraute Oquendo
leading the enemy's column were seen
to be heading for the beach and in
flames. The Texas, O.vgon and Iowa,
pounded them unmercifully. They
ceased to reply, and in a few minutes
the Spanish cruisers were a mass of
flames and on Ihe rocks with their col
ors down, the Teresa fiyiug a white
flag at the fore. Tho crews of the
enemy's ships stripped themselves and
began jumping overboard, and some of
th:' smaller nag: zir.es began to explode.
"M an time the Brooklyn and the
Cristobal Colon w( re exchanging com
pliments in lively fashion at apparently
long range, and the Oregon, with her
locomotive speed, was hanging well on
the Colon, ;i-so paying attention to the
Yizcaya. The Teresa and the Oquendo
were in flames on the beach just 20
minutes alter the first shot was fired.
Fifty minutes after the first shot was
fired, the Yizcaya put Iut helm to port,
with a great burst of flame from the
utter part of the ship and headed slowly
for the rocks, where the f jiind her last

"An it was apparent that tin Jow.i
could not catch the Cristobal Colon and
thiit tho Oregon and Blooklyii und .rl t
edly would, and as the fast New York
was on her trail, I decided that the calls
of humanity should lie answered .aid
attention given to the l.liOJor l.TrHJ
Spanish olliccrs and men who had
struck their colors. I therefore headed
for the wreck of the Yizcaya, now burn
ing furiously fore and aft. When I
was in as far as tho depth of water
would admit, I lowered all my boats
and sent them to tho assistance of the
unfortuuato men who were being
drowned by dozens or roasted on deck.
I soon discovered that insurgent Cubans
were shooting on the men who had sur
rendered tt us. I immediately put a
stop to this, but I could not put a stop
to tho mutilation of many bodies by tho
sharks inside the reef. These creatures
had become excited by the blood from
the wounded mixing in the water.
"My boats crews worked manfully
and succeeded in -saving many of the
wounded. One man who will be recom
mended for promotion clambered up the
Yizcaya and saved three men. Tho
smaller magazines of the Yizcaya were
exploding with magnilicient cloud ef
fects. The boats were coming alongside
in a steady stream, and willing hands
were helping the lacerated Spanish of
ficers and men on to the Iowa's quarter
deck. Some of the Spaniards had no
clothes. Some had their legs torn off
by fragments of shell. Others were
mutilated in every conceivable way.
"I took Admiral Cervera aboard the
Iowa, from the Gloucester, and received
him with a full admiral's guard. The
crew of the Iowa crowded, aft, black
with powder, and half naked as Cer
vera stepped over the side bare headed.
Over the undersuit he wore a thin wool
undersuit borrowed from Lieutenant
Commander Wainwright. Cervera is
every inch an admiral even if he had no
hat. He submitted to the fortunes of
war with a grace, that proclaimed him
Kxamle8 of Heroism.
"The bottoms of the boats held two or
three inches of blood. In many cases
dead men were lying in the blood.
Five poor chaps died on the way to the
ship. They were afterward buried with
military honors from the Iowa. Some
examples of heroism, or more properly
devotion to discipline and duty, could
never be surpassed. One man on the
Yizcaya had his left arm almost shot off
just below the shoulder. The fragments
were hanging by a small piece of skin.
But he climbed unassisted over the side
and saluted as if on a visit of ceremony.
Immediately after him a strong-hearted
sailor whose left leg was shot off below
the knee, was hoisted aboard the
Iowa with a tackle, but never a whim
per from him."
Captain Evans is intensely proud of
his ship and his men, The Iowa fired
31 12-inch, 41 8-inch, 210 4-inch, 1,000
6-pound and 120 1 -pound shots. The
officers of the Yizcaya said they could
not hold their crews at the guns, on ac
count of the rapid fire poured on them.
The decks were flooded with water from
the fire hose, and blood from the
wounded made this a dark red. Every
instant the crack of exploding shells
told of new havoc. Two 12-inch shells
from the Iowa exploded a torpedo in the
