Ion's battalion of marines, which
landed from the trans|M>rt Panther on
Friday and encamped on the hill guard-
ing the abandoned itable station at the
entrance to the out< r harbor of (Suan-
taiiaino, has been en^-aged in heading
(dT a rtiNh attach by Spanish guerrillas
timl regulars. The fighting was almost
continuous for thirteen hours, until 0
o'clock Sunday morning, when rein-
forcements were landed from the Mar-
blehead. Four of our men were killed
snd one wounded. The advance pick-
ets under Lieutenants Neville ami
Shaw are unaccounted for.
Among the killed is Assistant Sur-
geon .loim I'.lair Olbbs, son of Major
(Hbbs of tho regular army, who fell in
tho Custer massacre. Ills home was at
Richmond, Va., but he has been prac-
ticing in New York and he entered the

The Spanish loss Is unknown, but it
was probably considerable. The
splashes of blood found at daylight
at the positions the Spaniards oc-
cupied indicate fatalities, but their
comrades carried off the killed and
The engagement l egnn with desul-
tory firing at the pickets, a thousand
yards inland from the camp. Captain
Spicer's company was doing guard
duty, and was driven in, tinally rally-
ing on the camp and repulsing the en-
emy at 5 o'clock. Tho bodies of pri-
vates McColgan and Dunphy were
found, both shot in the head. The
large cavities made by tlie bullets,
which, inside a range of 500 yards,
have a rotary motion, indicate that the
victims were killed at close range.
The bodies were stripped of shoes,
hats and cartridge belts and horribly
mutilated with machetes. When they
were brought in. the whole battalion
formed three sides of a hollow square
about the camp on the hilltop.
Below, in the bay,were the warships
at anchor. Inland from the hill camp
is a deep ravine and beyond this arc
high hills. The adjacent country is
heavy with a thicket growth. The sky
was blanketed with clouds, and when
the sun set a gale was blowing sea-
ward. Night fell, thick ami impen
ctrable. The Spanish squads concealed
in the chapparel cover, had the advan-
tage. the men furnishing a fine target
against the sky. The Spaniards fought
from cover till midnight, discoverable
only by Hashes at which the marines
tired volleys. The repeaters sounded
like firecrackers in a barrel.
The Marblehcad launch, with a colt
machine gun in her bow, pushed up
the bay, enfilading the Spaniards, and
it is thought some were killed. The
marines trailed much blood to the
water's edge and there lost it. Sharks
are numerous in the vicinity.
The ships threw their searchlights
ashore, the powerful eyes sweeping
the deep tropic foliage and disclosing
occasionally skulking parties of Span-
iards. It all represented a transfc
at ion scene at the harbor.
Kach discovery of the enemy was
greeted by the cracks of carbine fire
along the edge of the camp ridge or by
the long roll of the launch's machine
gun, starching the thickets with a
Shortly after midnight came the
main attack. The Spaniards made a
gallant charge up the southwest slope,
nut were met by repeated volleys from
the main IkkIv, and broke before they
were one-third of the way up the hill;
but they came so close that, at points,
there was almost a hand to hand strug-
gle. The officers used their revolvers.
Three Spaniards got through the open
formatiou to the edge of the camp.
Colonel Jose Campina. the Cuban guide,
discharged his revolver, and they, t tim-
ing and finding themselves without
support, ran helter-skelter down the
reverse side of the hill.
It was during this assault that As-
sistant Surgeon (libbs was killed. He
was shot in the head in front of his
own tent, the farthest point of attack.
He fell into the arms of Private Sulli-
van, and both dropped. A second bul-
let threw dust iu their faces. Surgeon
Uihbs lived ten minutes, but did not
Toward morning the fire slackened.

tho t'nited States and Spain has taught
us useful lessons. It has taught us the
absolute necessity of complete and
thorough organization previous to
war, instead of trusting to chance. It
has taught us the value of a proper
supply of cruisers and the ineffective*
i of obsolete guns against the range
and accuracy of modern weapons. No
other nation has a ship on theeffective
list armed with muzzle-loading guns,
