Guantanamo Bay it is stated will be
a base of supplies and a shelter for the
American fleet and must therefore be
free from any menace of danger. On
the shore of the bay will be dumped
thousands of tons of coal from colliers
sent there for the purpose. This will ob
viate the necessity of frequent returns
to Key West or even coaling at sea.
The movement upon Guantanamo
however will be only a diversion as the
town will not require a large force for
its capture. The main attack by the
army with undoubtedly be upon San

ship of Commodore Howell; her com-
mander is Cap ain Leary.
As the bottom is of a sandy

An Important Trial In Washington
Washington D. C June 13 In
the district court next week there
will come up for trial a case in ' which
the local branch of the Knights of
Labor is defendant and the result of
which will be awaited with national
interest. The ease is one involving
the rights of organized labor to boycott
those who do not meet its demands
and owing to the fact that every phase
of the question is supposed to be In-
volved in this particular suit and that
moreover both sides have retained
eminent legal counsel the result of the
trial is reasonably 'expected to go a
long way toward definitely settling this
much-disputed point in law. A half
dozen leading members of the local K.
of L. have been criminally indicted
for conspiracy to injure the business
of Charles C. Walter a well
known carriage manufacturer of
this city. The indictment eets
forth that prior to the boycott being
placed on his shops by the organization
he enjoyed an extensive business but
in the last three years it has been vir
tually ruined because of the action of
the Knights in declaring him to be
"unfair to organized labor." In form
er cases oi a similar nature
the aggrieved parties have
sought to obtain redress through
the medium of civil suits for damages
and added interest is therefore given
the present case by the fact it is the
first in which the labor leaders were
brought to trial on a criminal charge.
Springfield 111. June 13. The ar
riving trains today are bringing hun-
dreds of republicans whe come as dele-
gates or interested spectators for the
state convention tomorrow and also
for the meeting of the state republican
league which will be held tomorrow's
night in Representatives' hall of tbe
state capitol. The state convention
will be the largest of its
kind lever held in Illinois
and will contain 1521 dele-
gates of whom 515 will re-
present Cook county. There will be
only two nominations to make and
those for relatively unimportant of
ficesstate treasurer and superin
tendent of public instruction but
nevertheless the convention will be an
interesting one in so far as it is likely
to be productive of an acrimonious con-
test between the so-called republican
state machine and its opponents.
Philadelphia Pa. June .13. A
committee composed of representatives
of various patriotic organizations-of
the Qnaker City today visited and de-
corated with flags and bunting the
plain old-fashioned little house in
Arch street below Third where the
first American flag was made by Betsy
Ross. Tomorrow will be the 121st an-
niversary of the Stars and Stripes and
the decorations were in celebration of
the event. Owing to the peculiar ap
propriateness of the occasion it is like
ly that tbe observance of Flag Day
throughout the country tomorrow will
exceed all former celebrations of tbe
To the Philippines.

His Report Received Today By
Washington June 13. Admiral
Dewey's full report of the battle of
Manila Bay and subsequent happening
la tbe Philippines was received at
the navy department by mall today.
The report under date of May 4
We a-riv. d off B liaio ong the morn-
ing of April 30. Finding no vessels
there we proceeded down the coast
and arrived off the entrance of Manila
Bay the same afternoon. A thorough
sea search of the port was made by the
Boston and Concord but the Spanish
fleet was not found.
We entered the south channel and
arrived off Manila. At daybreak the
fleet was fired upon by the batteries at
Manila and Cavite and by the Spanish
fleet lying at anchor. The squadron
then proceed to attack tbe flagship
Olympia under my personal direction
leading followed by the Baltimore
Raleigh Petrel Concord and Boston
in the order -named which formation
was maintained throughout the ac-
tion. The equa-lron opened fire while ad-
vancing to the attack. Two mines ex-
ploded ahead but tbe flagship was too
far off to be effective. The Spanish
Saga hip Relna Christina made a
desperate attempt to leave the line
and come out to engage us at short
range but she received such a galling
fire the entire battery of tbe Olympia
being concentrated upon her that she
was barely able to return to tbe shelt-
er of the point. The fires started in
her by tbe shells at this time were not
extinguished until she sank.
The three batteries at Manila kept
up continuous firing from tbe begin-
ning of the engagement which lire
was returned by the squadron. At
this point I sent a message to the gov
ernor general to the effect that if the
batteries did not cause firing the city
would be shelled.
This had tbe effect of silencing them
at 7:35. I ceased firing and withdrew
for breakfast. At 11:16 a. m. I resum
ed tbe attack. By this time the Span
ish flagship and almost tbe entire
Spanish fleet were In flames. At 12:30
p. m. the squadron ceased firing.
The batteries bad been silenced and
all the enemy's ships sunk burned and
deserted fourteen of them. I am un-
able to obtain a completeiacconnt of the
enemy's killed and wounded but be
lieve the losses to be very heavy. The
Relna Christina alone had 150 killed.
Including the captain and 90 wound
I am happy to report that the dam
age done to the squadron under my
command was inconsiderable. There
were none killed and only seven men
in the squadron very slightly wounded.
Several vessels were struck and even
penetrated but the damage was of the
slightest and the squadron la In as
good condition now as before the bat-
tle. I beg to state to the department
that I doubt if a commander-in-chief
was ever served by more loyal effici
ent and gallant captains than those o
the squadron now under my command
Warship For Honolulu.
Washington June 13. The navy
department has decided to send the
Philadelphia to Honolulu to remain
there pending the settlement of the
future of the islands. She will be the
flagship of Rear Admiral Miller who
will hoist the American flag over the
Hawaiian islands and take possession
for the United States as soon as con
gress adopts tbe annexation resolution.
Tbe Philadelphia will be ready to sail
from San Francisoo in ten days.
A distinguished delegation of Mex
ican citizens were in El Paso Satur-
day. The 'following gentlemen com
posed the party: ignacio de la Torres
Tomas de la Torres Enrique Lebo de
Sorrea Juan Gutierres and Alfredo
Saldivar. These gentlemen passed
through this city teveral weeks ago
and have spent their time in the east
selecting thoroughbred horses and
Durham cattle lor there ranches near
the City of Mexico. Senor Ignacio
Torres is a son-in law of President
Diaz of the republic of Mexico. In re-
gard to the Spanish American trouble
tbe party guarded their remarks re-
markably well. They acknowledge
however that they themselves were
neutral and thoughtpoesibly that the
majority of the Mexican people would
take tbe same stand. Senor Torres as-
sured the Herald representative that
President Diaz was watching the
border closely and weuld prevent an
outbreak at all hazards. "I must say
that the cause of this war is not tho-
roughly understood by all of our peo-
ple" said one of the party "and the
ignorant of course sympathize with
the under dog which is Spain's pre-
sent position but the Intelligent posi-
tion of my country is heartily in favor
of Cuban Independence."
