Movement to pas through the ra began
at 10:20 p. m. Forts-. Mlchle. Wright and
Terry engaged fifty minutes.- Apparently
the ships entering have been put out of
action by points scored by the army guns.
The resaltf however, .will be determined
later by the board of arbitration.
All was .quiet at army headquarters,
when. suddenly the reports of the big guns
were Heard gad General MseArtbur lis
tened -attentively.' The attack waa on, but
It came sooner than .was expected by the
major general commanding. ' When the
booming of the big guns signaled the be
ginning of the attack, for the moment all
communication with the forts being cut off
by telegraph and telephone, General Mac
Arthur boarded his yacht Kanawha and
proceeded to Fort Wright. Far out In the
races the ships ' commanded by Admiral
Hlgglnsoa were sighted, and Just at soon
as they came . within firing dlstsoc the
fort gunr opened on them. - There - was
quick response from the enemy.
It seems the fleet of the enemy bad been
divided, the squadron under Admiral Cogh.
lan not being seen during the first attack.
Admiral Hlgglnsoft cam from the east to
the race and there the fight commenced
with all the realism as far as potslbl of
actual war. The ships' lights were out, and
It was evident the admiral hoped he could
get nearer the forts before he waa discov
red, but In this ha was foiled, ao the army
officers claim, and his ships, Including
Massachusetts) and Indiana, were put out
of action, the ships hurrying to the west
ward out of the firing sons. Just exaotly
where the fleet went was not known defini
tely at headquarters.
