July 4—8 p in—Per A. P. Boat, via Kingdom Jam, July 6—2 p rn—After a chase of 60 miles to the westward, the Brooklyn, closely followed by the Oregon, overhauled the Cristobal Colon, after she had run ashore and had hauled down her flag. Capt Cook of the Brooklyn went on board of her and the commander of the Spanish cruiser came forward to surrender and was taken on board the New York, which came up an hour after the Brooklyn and Oregon had completed the capture of the Cristobal Colon. The latter was not seriously damaged, though she was struck several times by shots from the Brooklyn and Oregon. During the chase a clever maneuver of Com Schley’s in heading due west to cape Caney, while the Cristobal Colon had taken a more southerly direction with a much greater distance to cover, rendered the Spaniard’s escape impossible. There seems to be no doubt that the Cristobal Colon and perhaps the other three Spanish armored cruisers would have escaped had It not been for the prompt action of Com Schley. The Brooklyn, his flagship, alone was in a position to attack the Spanish ves- Continned on the Second Pace. Summer Comfort When the sun blazes fiercely down, and the air is hot and sultry, comfort becomes the first consideration in respect to matters of attire. Yet one need not forsake style withal; indeed, we can show you how possible it is to make effective concessions to hot-weather necessities without sacrificing in the least that trimness of effect which marks the man of taste in dress.

Abandoning Cruise. NEW YORK. July &-J. Pierpont Morgan, commodore of the New York yacht club, has issued an official notice to the public that the annual cruise of the club will not take place this season. The reasons given for declaring off the cruise are that the comparatively small number of yachts in commission and the restrictions upon navigation in force at the principal ports would seriously Impair the success of the cruise. In conclusion, the statement says: “There Is another consideration which Is deemed controlling, the country Is engaged In war, thousands of our citizens are risking their lives In her service, including, in the navy particularly, many who are members of the club.1’__ Enterprise Leaves Portland.

Lieuta Parker and Leland of the 5th Continued on the Fourth Page. WASHINGTON, July ^Santiago has not yet surrendered. The bombardment of the city was scheduled for noon today, but there was a hitch In the performance. More than this, the time when the curtain will again rise upon the tragedy of war is Indefinite. The city is certainly doomed, but the exact moment of Its fall cannot be predicted. The end may be hastened by the fact, made known in a telegram from Gen Shafter tonight, that he has placed several rifled mortars In position to shell the city, and by the appeals of the foreign consuls, who Insist that Gen Lino ret) shall hold out no longer. It is understood that the president is very anxious that Sampson shou... enter the harbor, and if there is any hesitation on the admiral’s part, positive orders may be sent to him. The glow of victory has been dimmed by new developments. Within rifle shot of Santiago the American army is encamped waiting either for reinforce- j ments or for the navy to come to its j assistance. Will Admiral Sampson, defying dan- ' gcr on the hills or hidden in the deep, I dash by tho fortifications on shore and j over the submarine mines and place the city at his mercy? This question wu3 the one uppermost topic today, As soon as official < onflrmation had been received of the fact that tho Spanish garrison had been reinforced, almost outnumbering the American army, It j became necessary to know whether the j cooperation of tho navy could be counted I upon. The matter wa? thoroughly discussed In the cabinet meeting, alter which tele- ! grams were sent u- Gen Shatter and * Admiral Sampson directing them to confer together, and decldo upon tho best policy to be pursued. Up to the present time no answer has been received. There w^re rumors today that Admiral Simpson has already attempted to force the harbor, but they lacked official confirmation. In fact, it Is not believed that Admiral Sampson will attempt to gain an entrance until the shore batteries have been silenced. This may take some time. The reports from Santiago Bhow that Morro castle, despite all the hammering which it Is said to have undergone since the American squadron anchored within its range, is still able to use its guns. The batteries In its rear along the east-e:n shore of the harbor are still undemolished. It la the opinion of the mill-tiry and naval experts that the next movement will be a comblred attack by the army and navy upon Morro castle and these batteries, the troops assailing them en the land side under the cover j of the guns of the fleet. When they have been taken the harbor can be dragged for mines, an operation that will not take longer than a day, and then Admiral Sampson can safely sail up to the city. When this point has been reached the surrender of Santiago will follow as a matter of course, although In tnelr desperation the Spanish soldiers can be relied upon to make a determined, stubborn resistance, Inflicting all the injury possible upon our array It will be for them a desperate ami j hopeless defense.

CAMP ALGER, Va, July 6-The Gth Massachusetts left Dunn Loring station tonight at 7.30 for Charleston, S C, there to embark for Santiago. Today was the first time since this camp was established thnt a whole brigade broke camp at once. It was the 2d brigade, 2d division, 2d army corps, under the command of Brig Gen Garretson. Last night the 8th Ohio received orders to leave this evening for N''w York, but the “two sixes,” the 6th Illinois and the Gth Massachusetts, did not get thc'r orders until this noon.. The orders then were Imperative, to got away as soon as possible, and It to:k the Gth Massachusetts just three hours to be riady to march off tho field. The orders came just as the men w^re going to dinner, and many of the men embraced the opportunity to take In a good supply of food, while others wore too excited to eat anything, and no one knows when they will get another “square meal ” It Is surprising to see how quickly a body of well trained men can get on the move, and the Gth Massachusetts gave a beautiful exemplification of how this work can be done. Before 2 o'clock every man had his roll thrown across hi3 shoulder and was ready to start, but the bugle did not sound. When the call did come every man Jumped to his place in line. One wag shouted “All aboard for Cuba, and no way stations!" Although tho Gth Massachusetts was the last to receive Its ordeis It was the first regiment to march off the field, and I the boys of the 8th Ohio and the Gth Illinois gave the bay state boys a glorious send off, cheesing and waving their hats. The bands also added to the enthusiasm. The weather was glorious and the rain last night laid the dust, so that the I march from the camp to Dunn Ia>ring station was not nearly as trying as It otherwise would have been. Immediately the orders to move were received Adjt Butler Ames threw his campaign hat out of his tent and yelled with delight. He had a smile on hts countenance that Illuminated the whole camp. The regiment looked fine as It marched off the field and reminded one very much of the departure of the gallant Sd Massachusetts when it left camp Dewey zig weeks ago. The fine soldierly appearance of the regiment was a striking feature. The men marched with a steadiness that cannot be surpassed by any regular regiment in the service, and physically the Gth has no equal at camp Alg'r, or any other camp. Every man when Col Woodward gave the order to march had a determined look on his face, and all left the field the picture of health. At Dunn Loring the long walt for the train had a tendency to try the boy*' nervous systems, so eager were they to get away, but all left in the best of spirits arid temper. Many compliments were thrown at th# regiment by officers stationed here os the boys marched Into the station. On* colonel at the quartet master’s depot sold; Continued on the Fourth I ’age. ;
