New York. The Times dispatch from

inconvenience and distress caused thi

more promptly than it was had ou

there is no probability of this belri

of time. Commodore 0Ne:il. chief
the ordnance bureau, said the burea
had placed very large orders with prj

that large amounts of it were bein
shipped to Santiago. It would take
lunge time, the commodore said, to sut
ply all the ships, and in view of th
quantities of ammunition likely to t
ust-d there it would be difficult, wit
the present facilities for nianufacturin

hold out that the navy would be ab

Berlin. The remarkable speech de
livered by the United Slates ambas
sador. Mr. Andrew D. White, at the
ourtn or July celebration by Ameri
cans at Leipsic on Monday last, has
aiviaea tne attention of the German
press ail week equally with the latest
developments of the war tet ween Spain
and the United States. The speech is
universally characteristic as a co.iiical
enunciation of prime importance. The
attendant circumstances, too. were of
an unusual character.
Mr. White, in an interview with the
correspondent here of the Associated
Never in my life have I seen such a
scene of fraternization of Americans
and Britons. The flrgs of both were in
tertwined around the hall, and a number
of prominent Tngllshmen residing In
Germany were present. The toast. 'To
tr.e resident of the United States,
was received with tremendous enthusi
asm by every one present."
The reception by the German news
papers of Mr. ".Vhite's speech varied
greatly. Many of the papers sup
pressed those portions of the ambas
sadors remarks which were unfavor
able to Germany or Germans. Others
pretended to be ttnaware of any sys
tematic unfriendliness toward the
United States on the part of the Ger
mans. The Post of this city, in addi
tion to admitting a few days ago that
the speech would materially help to
dispel the unfriendly filling which
threatened to arise between the Ameri
cans and Germans, promises to co-operate
with Mr. White in establishing
better teeiine between the two nations.
The government press thus far has been
mute, but the cortespondent of the
Associated Press here leains that the
government will tske an early oppor
tunity to rerer to the speech of the
United States ambassador.
A remarkable article has appeared in
the Deutsche Zeitung, the leading organ j
oi me nin-uermin party. Alter ap
proving of Mr. Whites speech and re
minding the Americans of the past close
lelations between the two countries,
the paper asks:
How lias the United States treated
us in return? Hw has she thanked us
for past favors during the last decade?
The United States throughout has been
unfriendly to us in its economic, com
mercial and political coutse, and has

The program arranged by Mayor
Frank E. Moores and other loyal cltl-
sens was well carried out. and though
it was at night before the last section
of the regiment pasted through the
city, none of the soldiers were allowed
to leave the station unreminded of the
good will of the pec pie of Exposition
city. At the blowing of the big whistle
of the Bemis Bag company shortly be
fore t o clock, the citizens of all sec
tions were notified that they had on
nour to get to the railway station
and welcome the eastern soldier boys.
They responded numerously and
quickly. They came from as many sec
tions of the city as the shrill blasts of
the powerful whistle penetrated, and
that term included the streets of all
sections and of all nations. From all
quarters the people came, and hardly
a one that did not bring some token
of regard for the Empire state vol
unteers. By 5 o clock the crowd at
Tenth and Mason streets had com
pletely overrun both of the railway
stations and the extensive platforms
between them. The early comers
picked out points of vantage on the
colonades and balconies of the Burling
ton s new depot. The east side of

rowded with an animated throng. The

easily climbed, and the tops of frieght

Before the boats could be got from

ship lurched to starboard, throwing the
passengers overboard. The slant of the
deck was so steep that passengers
could not stand upon it. The passen

the sailors clambored Into the six

them and could not budge them and
gave up In despair.
THREE BOATS ARE SMASHED.
On the starboard side three boats
were smashed by the Cromartyshire in
the collision. Boat No. 7 was filled with
women and other passengers and had
been launched successfully, when the
big funnel fell, crushing the boat and
killing most of those in it.

o'clock when the lookout, seated away

mighty yell went up to the lookout In
acknowledgment of his tip. If there
was a big crowd before there was twice

Where they come from it was hard
to tell, but they rushed out pell-melt,
all enthusiastic to extend a cordial

was drawn into the station slowly la
