Sheboygan Times, The (Newspaper) - July 23, 1898, Sheboygan, Wisconsin Sheboygan Times Published Every Saturday THE TIMES PUBLISHING CO., JULY 23, XLV, NO. PORTO RICO. Second and Third Wisconsin Sail from Charleston, BADGERS ON THE WAY Bnclced and Delayed the Load- ins of the Third Transport of the Fleet. Charleston, S. C., July and Illinois troops are in the advance guard of the expedition to Porto Rico, being the first of the army of liberation to leave American shores. They left this port at 7 o'clock last evening, sped oa by patriotic music and the cheers of practi- cally the entire population of Charleston. The Wisconsin troops were on the high seas last night and their Illinois brethren are to follow. Three ship loads of troops constitute this initial expedition. On the transport Grand Duchess is the Second Wisconsin regiment, on transport No. 30 the Third Wisconsin nnd on transport No. 21 two companies of the Sixth Illinois aud the entire Sixteenth Pennsylvania. The first two vessels put to sea at once, while No. 21 is still loading. Maj.-Gen. J. H. Wilson in command. His troops, together with the rest of the Sixth Illinois and tho Sixth Massachu- setts, which sailed from here last week for Santiago, comprise the First brigade of the First division of the First army corps. Transport No. 21, apportioned to the in- vaders from Illinois and Pennsylvania, waa the Ward liner Mobile and is the larg- est ship of her kind that has ever sone out of an Atlantic port south of Norfolk. In addition to 1400 men she carries 1000 head of stock, the wagon train of the di- vision and a vast quantity of supplies. One important announcement, gained from authoritative sources before the de- parture of the transports, is that the ex- pedition will sail directly for Porto Rico. This disposes of the report that the in- vaders sent from the United States would be concentrated at some point in the invasion took place. It gives color, on the other hand, to the report that Gen. Miles will precede this expedition to Porto Rico and select its landing place. For hours before the departure of the troops cnnyds lined the shore in a dense mass for three miles. When the ships drew away and the bands ashore and afloat played national airs the thousands of spectators cheered like mad. It had been hot in the city, but late in the after- noon a sudden thunder shower came up. The rain was of brief duration, and as the ships made the stream a perfect rain- bow broke over the entrance to the har- bor, just as was the case when the Rita took her expedition to Santiago, ten days ago. For two days and nights the work of loading baggage and provisions on the transports has been going forward under rush orders. All the stevedores in the city were employed at it. They were as- sisted by details of men from the various .regiments and the 500 negro laborers em- ployed here by the government and des- tined" for work on the roads and bridges in Cuba. As a result yesterday's depart- ure found nothing lacking in the way of supplies. Transport No. 21 carried, in addition to tho troops, 1000 head of mules an-] the Tvasron- train. The men were embarked easily' enough, but the mules were frac- tious and the No. 21 was delayed. Camp Cuba Libre, Jacksonville, Fla., July hundred men were detailed from the regiment this for rilie practice and 150 for the construction, of a drainage system about the division camp. Every precaution is being taken to improve the sanitary con- dition. Col. Bryan's regiment is expected to ar- rive here this afternoon. It will be as- signed to Gen. Hubbard's division at Pan- ama park. Two sections of Tampa troops passed through this morning en route to Fernandina, from which point they will leave for Porto Rico. Jacksonville, Fla., July some unaccountable reason tiie North Carolina boys encamped here are determined to do some ngutmg, even tnougn it is not at the front. One member of this regiment forced the lines of the First Wisconsin yesterday and, u fter a few impertinent re- marks to one of the men, started in to emphasize his speech with his fists. The Wisconsin niaii accepted the invitation, and botli were soon engaged in dead earn- est. Men from both regiments joined their respective comrades, and clubs and other weapons were brought in to help out matters. The North Carolina sentry guards reached over with rifles and were soon met by Wisconsin guards with their guns, and had it not been for the Second Virginia boys charging in between the now intensely angry soldiers some one would have undoubtedly been seriously wounded or killed. The feeling between the North Carolina and Second Illinois regiments, over the shooting of was very bitter, and last night the same feeling existed between the North Carolina and Wisconsin men. The latter regiment occupies a position be- tween the Illinois and Wisconsin troops, making the situation unpleasant in the ex- treme. New York, July daylight three of the fleet of United States transports which have been fitted out at this port put to sea, and upon clearing Sandy Hook took southerly courses. The Gla- cier was the first to leave. She was fol- lowed by the Roumanian, now known as No. 52, and the Michigan, known as No. 20. The Massachusetts, which is being loaded, will leave later in the day. The auxiliary cruiser St. Louis, which now carries five 55-inch rifles, is sched- uled to leave the American line pier for the south at: 5 p. m. today. She has 4000 tons of coal, ammunition aud a big stock of provisions on board.____ LOST IN THE WOODS. Heine Hanson Wundern the Wooda Nenr Aahlsmd and Doca Not Return. Ashland, Wis., July Han- son, an old man years of age, left Monday afternoon with his wife to pick berries in the vicinity of the fair grounds. He and hla wife became separated, and she returned home about supper time, thinking that her husband had returned also. He did not return and a posse started out to make a search. They have scoured the woods since Monday evening, but no trace of him can be found. It is thought that he has been overcome by the intense heat, and died. Fully 100.people are searching today in the vicinity of where he was last seen. The fire' alarm was turned in yesterday afternoon to start out another cosse. FEAR A FATALITY. An Upturned Sailboat Sighted Near Marinette. Marinefte, Wis., July The Sidney O. Neff, a steamer, when about about a mile from Green isle last evening, sighted a sailboat upturned and badly wrecked by the storm's fury. It was a red boat about twenty feet over all, and the query as to whom does it belong, was it occupied at the time of the storm, and are unfortunate occupants now lying beneath the green waters of the bay. A boat answering its description was seen occupied by several persons the fore- noon of the day of the storm by Oukwood parties. There is little doubt that the waters of the bay may disclose who the unfortunate occupants were ere Ions. IMMENSE LUMBER DEAL.
