Every vessel in Admiral Sampson's
flet went through the fierce engage
ment without injury. But one man
in the American fleet was killed and
two were injured.
From the veiy first of the fighting
the tittle Gloucester was in the thick
est of it. Atone time she was pour
ing her six-pounder ehell6 against the
entire Spanish fleet, while the guns of
Morro castle were making ber their
target. She riddled the destroyers
and fought the Vizcaya and Oquendo
as fiercely as if she were a battleship.
Magnificent beyond description was
the bold dash by which Cervera at
tempted to get his fleetoutof Santiago
harbor. Cervera himself led the way
with his flagship the Cristobal Colon.
It was to ba a dash to liberty or death,
and the Spanish admiral made the
plunge with eyes opt n.
At 9:30 o'clock a vessel suddenly ap
peared at the entrance of the harbor,
steaming straight for the American
fleet. It was soon discovered to be
the Cristobal Colon, Admiral Cervera's
flagship and she was soon flollowed by
the other ships of the fleet, the two
torpedo boats bringing up the rear.
The Americans, of cour e.were com
pletely taken by surprise, but they
immediately recovered. As Admiral
Sampson was ten miles down the
coast inspecting some works the com
mand devolved upon Commodore

IV Saturday night all of the outer
fortilicatiOLs of the city had been
takea and Gen'I Snafter 6eut a mes
s ige to the Spanish commander, de
manding the immediate and uncondi
tional surrender of the city and stat
ing that in case or refusal bombard
ment w ould begin at 10 o'clock Mon
day morning, but at the request of the
foreign representatives in Santiago
the action was postponed until noon
l uesdaj. In the meantime, however,
Cervera had made his dramatic dash
from the harbor and the authorities
here thought the better policy would
be to stiil further defer the bombard
ment until the fleet of Admiral Samp
son could enter the harbor and lend its
aid to the land forces. Instructions to
this effect have accordingly been
cabled Shafler and Sampson ar.d it is
now thought the final assault will not
be,-in until the latter partof the week.
Durin the terrific conflict ot Friday,
Gen'I Linares in command of the
Spanish forces was shot through the
aim and forced to retire.
The city is now nearly surrounded
by the American forces but despite
this fact. (Jen. 1'ando yesterday suc
ceeded in entering the city with 7,000
troops. In order to do so he was forced
to do battle with Gen. Garcia s army
of 3,000 Cubans, but superior numbers
won and the besieged city has now
7,000 more men to feed. During the
engagement with Garcia, l'ando was
severely wounded in the arm and is
the third conspicuous Spanish leader
to fall in battle.
The volunteers during these two
days' battles did grand and effective
work, the rough riders especially at
tracting great attention by" their
bravery and gallantry.
The dead and wounded were taken
to the rear as rapidly as possible, the
latter being sent aboard ship, and the
the more serious being sent by trans
poit to Key West.
During the engagementthe heat was
simply terrible, and many of our men
dropped down overcome.
