one of the American ships was 
struck, the Spanish gunnery being 
ild. There is no means of know- 
ing the number of dead and wound-

considerable, 

While the New York, Puritan 
and Cincinati were reconnoitering 
in force for the purpose of locating 
and destroying the formidable de- 
fences being constructed the flag- 
ship was tired on by the batteries 
on Point Kubalacaya and Point 
Maya, guarding theentrance to the 
harbor. 

The New York replied, firing her 
8-inch gun on the port side. She 
iteamed boldly in between the bat- 
teries and soon blazed away with 
both broadside at them.

The Puritan steamed in behind 
the New York and engaged the for-

New York went to starboad close

which had remained well

Graphic Description of the Bombardment of Matanzas -Forts

American Warships. 



Hew York, April 28.— The Spanish fleet under Admiral Mundjo put 
nto Subig bay to-day and is awaiting Admiral Dewey, who must pass 
that way enroute to Manilla. A great naval battle is expected on his 
arrival Saturday. If Dewey wins he will proceed to Manilla and effect 
a landing on the Phillipine Islands. If worsted he will break for San 
Francisco, as no reinforcements can be sent him in time to be of service. 
The Spanish Admiral has chosen his ground and is calmly waiting for - 
his adversary and will risk everything on one naval battle. Dewey's 
squadron consists of the cruisers Olympia, Boston, Raleigh,Concord and 
the gunboat Petrel and several other vessels. The Spanish Admiral 
has only one good w arship, the Luzon, and a number of vessels of th$ 
minor class.

HOW WE ONCE TOOK HAVANA 



After a Terrible Siege American 
Soldiers Hauled Down the 
Spanish Hag From 
Morro Castle. 



In 17f 2 soldiers from the Ameri- 
can colonies which afterward be- 
came the United States captured 
Havana under English leadership, 
and men from Massachusetts hauled 
down, the Spanish Hag from Mon o 
Castle. ' 

The story is well worth recalling 
because it -hows how bravely and 
successfully our ancestors fought 
against Spain, and also because it

he deadly rainy season sets in. 
The following is from Bancroft,

Nicholas. Admiral Pococke sailed 
directed through the Dahama straits 
and on the 0th day of June came in 
sight of the low coast around Ha- 
vana. The Spanish forces for the 
defense of lho city were about 4,- 
OtMl; the Knglish had 11,800 effec- 
mcn and were recruited by 
fly a thousand negroes from the 
ward Islands, and by 1.5(H) 
l Jamaica. Before the end of 
July the needed reinforcements ar- 
ned from New York and New En- 
land; among these w as Putnam, 
the brave ranger of Connecticut,

ause never destined to rev isit their

EDISON ON WAR WITH SPAIN 

Torpedo Boats and Yellow Jack 
Have No Show Against 
Science. 



I can produce a light." said 
Thomas A. Edison in his labora- 
tory at West Orange yesterday, 
that will render absolutely harm- 
less Spain's terrible torpedo boat 
flotillas we read so much about. 
Science has found a way to destroy 
the mines Spain has planted in the 
harbors of Cuba. More important 
itill, science tells us how we can 
narch our armies from one end of 
Cuba to the other this summer, and 
in the rainy eason, too. and lose 
hardly a man from the dreaded ma- 
larial and yellow fevers." 

s to certain published state- 
ments to the effect that Mr. Edison 
had invented i lectrical apparatus 
that will work all kinds of destruc- 
in case of war, he said: 
Ml such statements are imagi- 
native. No such things are needed, 
does science do its work 
through any such methods. Sci- 
ence does its work in legitimate 
and straightforward ways, and it 
stands ready to-day to afford the 
United States army and navy just 
what it needs. 

As to the light that renders ab- 
solutely harmless these terrible tor- 
pedo boat flotillas? Well, the tor- 
pedo boat is a demon of darkness 
only. It is an enemy that creeps 
upon its foe in the night. In the 
day time it is as useless as the eye 
of an owl. In the daytime it can be 
l and blow n to pieces before it 
gets near enough to do any dam- 
age. 

"In order that an object may be 
observed distinctly the light must be 
behind it. It must appear in sil- 
houette, [gnite a .bonfire behind

"By the use of chemicals which 
ignite and produce a light when 
brought in contact with water, the 
ocean can he lighted up for about 
four square mildp about any of our 
vessels. This is an ample distance 
to render a torpedo useless, for the 
moment the latter appears within

The wizard was asked to elabo- 
rate on his idea of protecting the 
health of the army of occupation in 

Cuba. 

•Science can do a great deal for 
that army," he replied. ••! am will- 
ing to lay a wager that I can take 
inn men into Cuba and spend the 
summer in the worst districts of the 
■i-land and not lose a man, no. not 
one. And the same thing can be 
.l .ne for the army. 

Mr. Edison said that he bad 
plan* for the destruction of 1 
mines in the harbors of Cuba, 
would leave that to the dynamite 
cruiser Vesuvius and the dynamite 
cruiser Nichtheroy, which, it has 
been reported, the United States 
to buy from Brazil. How the 
little vessels can make a harbor 
safe by literally blasting a way 
our warships has been told in 

Press. Besides, the army engim 
are well up in countermining. 
hMison thought he could not help 
the army and navy a great deal 
in the mine question be© 
Spain, has no boats like the V 
and the Nichtheroy. 

Mr. Edison said he had no doubt 
that electricity would play an 
portant part in the war, and he 
pointed out that the Spaniards have 
little or no inventive genius. I 
this particular he said the Amer 
c^mis would have a great advai
