"Our commander, Commodore Schley, coolly snd deliberately tils-ed himself In the most ponsplourus places on the (hip, w here he c ould plainly ohtcervo ev erything and direct the man >eiiver/< of the Brooklyn nnd the fleet, as the N w Tfc ri. with Hear Admiral Sampson, had disappeared to the eastward an hour previous to the battle. This left the whufc command on Commodore Srhley, an<: he displayed seamanship that I rlo net hellevp was ever equalled In the history of the world. "It Is considered by nuval eomman ders to be remarkable and the height of efficiency for a ship of war to be clear ed for action in live minutes. However, on this occasion. In exactly two min utes the Brooklyn was sending In her terrible and destructive fire, and the Commodore was kept busy giving or ders. He had all the boilers going, fire hose connected all over the ship and a thousand and one other things In ac tion. He also had the Brooklyn headed for the leading Snanlsh shlo, so as to cut her off escaping to sea. Commodore Schley kept up a deadly fire abreast Of thj Spanish fleet. We were in awful shape for all of thirty minutes. "f cannot do Commodore Schley full justice. I and all the men on the Brook lyn and all those w hos • good fortune it Is tc I;e plated under his command agiee with me that he is a fighter and a thorough gentleman. H* repeatedly praised the men and gave then words of confidence and encouragement, one of his pharses being. ‘Bully, boys, give it to them; your shots are finding the mark.' I was excited s-mcwhat at tile start, but the men were constantly cheer ms. joirins and laughing.” ' HERALD WANT ADS ENJOY THE LARGEST CIRCULATION IN CEORUIA ANU SOUTH CAROLINA. tftto ACM* A tMK THE AUGUSTA IIEHALI). %o*ft mr %n FATAL HOTEL FIRE TODAY.

I At the battle of New Hope church, between Atlanta and Chlckumauga, |Gen. Walker sent Major Wm. H. Ross, who was on his staff, to ascertain from Gen. Wheeler, who pccunied an ml \anee position, what was in his front. He found the general on his horse, [with one leg over the pommel of the saddle. Haluting him. Major Ross said: I "(Jen. Walker would like to make a charge at this point and would like to know ts the enemy has a masked bat teryln front of us." [ 'I don't know. Major," Gen. Wheeler replied, "But I <an soon find out," and, swinging Into position In his saddle, he galloped up to a slight eminence, ac companied by Major Ross and his staff, ami planted a guluon. A moment later !a cuff of smoke In the distance, and the sputtering of a shell as It flew over them showed what was ahead. Turning to Major Ross, the general said: "Give Gen. Walker my compli ments, and say there Is a masked bat jtery In front of us.” I Major Ross ventured the remark that It was a rather risky way of uumask llng a battery. j "The first shots always fly high,"-was I the cool reply. "It's the shots shat fol low that are dangerous.” "When I returned and rejjprted to (Jen. Walker," said the major. “I re quested him to send someone else tli ■ next time he wished biil: lies unmask ,,,l by Gen. Wheeler." Macon Tele graph. “Whack” Bailey Dead Atlanta.
