Now that the war with Spain Is at an end
the men who acted leading pans In that
nhort , but sharp struggle can speak moro
freely than they could a few months ago.
To have written of the war during Its progress -
gross might have been regarded as ft breach
of discipline , but now that It Is ancient
history the leaders , both In the army and
navy , nro at liberty to tell the story of
events as witnessed by them. The maga-
zlnts for November contain several articles
by very prominent officers which will Uo
read with moro than usual Interest. Not-
nblo among these Is the article by Captain
Slgsboe In the November Century on the
destruction of the Maine. The captain of
the 111 fated ship gives In this article the
full Insldo history of the reception of the
Maine at Havana , her stay In the harbor ,
and her destruction. Important facts and
details are given which have never before
been made public. The article IB profusely
illustrated with portraits , pictures and
drawings , and facsimiles of the abusive
Spanish circular sent to Captain Slgsbee
nnd the tatters first dispatch announcing
the disaster. There are many other Inter
esting articles , together with the usual
Blorles In a lighter vain , but an } thing from
the pen of Captain Slgsbee that might
throw light on that dark tragedy In Havana
harbor will bo sulllclont to arrest the at
tention of the reading public. This number
of the Century presents a novelty In the
ways of a colored cover designed by Grasset ,
the famous poster-maker of I'arls. Ho has
pictured Alexander the Great on his Rtecd
"Bucephalus , " to mark the opening of 1'rof-
Ilcnjamln Ido Wheeler's serial "Life of
Alexander , " which will bo a feature of the
magazine during the coming year. Grassct's
present design Is entirely different from his
famous Napoleon poster , "Tho Sun of Aua-
tcrlltz , " which ho made for The Century ,
but It Is none the less striking. The greal
gray war-horse Is represented In the Im
mediate foreground , reined In until ho has
almost fallen on his haunches. On his back
Is the determined young Alexander , In rich
trappings of cold and purple.
Another aitlclo that will bo read with
great Interest by reason of the Important
position occup ed by the author Is "The
Navy In the Wa " bv Captain F. E. Chad-
wick of the flagship New York , published
In the current Scrlbncr's. It IH a complete
nnd authoritative account of the many prob
lems that had to be mot In the formation o
nn adequate licet and the conclusions to
bo drawn from the victory before Santiago
as to questions of type , construction and
armament of the navy of the future. Cap
tain Chadwlck says that the Spaniard had
never really faced a civilized fee excepting
In guerrilla warfare since the warn wagoii
In the Netherlands. Ho had no prepara
tlon for war on a large ficale. Ho bough :
and built fine ships , officered them by gal
lant men , the officers of the Spanish navy
having been at all period * of their bes
blood ; but there was throughout their
service the want of syotcm , the want o
drill , the general want of preparation which
one would look for In the Turk or Moor
but not In' tle European. Other notable
features of the November Scrlbncr's are
Richard Harding Davis' war stories , Sen
ator Lodge's "Vorktown , " and Walter A
Wyckoff's "The Workers "
Still another prominent contributor to thi
magazine literature of the month Is Lieu
tenant J. C. Fremont , who commanded thi
torpedo boat Porter and who tcll8 of the
experiences In that department of thn ficrv-
Ice during the war In Harper's. Ho gives
to the public for the first tlmo the story of
how close to destruction the flagship Now
York came whllo the Meet was blockading
Havana. The Porter came very near giv
ing a practical Illustration of Its powers
and the Now York came near being the vic
tim. Other prominent features are : "Bis
marck , " by Sidney Whitman , with an en
graving by K. Schladltz , of H hitherto un
published portrait ; "With the Fifth Corps , "
