One Is Called for Next Thursday at
That an effort is being made to crystallize the sentiment of the Independent vote of this division is evident from
a poster placed about town yesterday.
It calls tor an Independent convention
at Sandon next Thursday to select a
legislative candidate.
Following is a copy of the call:
: A convention of delegates repre- :

' of the Electoral Division of Slocan :
: will be held in Virginia Hall, San- :

: at 7:30 p. m. Delegates should :

In the absence of a voters' list, it is
impossible to do absolute justice in tho
matter of representation at the convention; but tha list appended ts at
least as close an approximation to it
as can possibly be made, says yesterday's Sandon Mining Review. The
people to be represented in this convention are all who are not. committed
supporters of tho Turner government.
Tho number of delegates allotted to
each place is as follows:
Place. No. of Del.
Kaslo  7
Sandon  7
New Denver 5
Slocan. City  5
Silverton    4
Throe Porks  2
Whitewater ,
���A insworth	
Bonnington Falls	
Deer Park  1
Pilot Bay...	
Duncan  1
Total 41
Thoro are doubts, says the Mining
Review, as to whether the three last
places aro in the district; if not they
will not of course be represented. Before the close of the convention an electoral association will be formed.
The News iu informed that it was in
error in accepting as oorreot the statement that the time for placing names
on the voters' list expired on the 4th
inst. Tho statement should have been
that it close* on the day on which the
writ of election is issuod, the date of
which is not yet announced.

".Tovl non Placet" wrote the redheaded girl In the back scat of the
wide, oblong school-room. Harrison
Jenkins, the presiding genius of the
place, stood scowling behind his desk,
struggling with the class ln Latin.
These young boys and girls, who looked pityingly up to his dark face, were
struggling Willi the verb "sum."
The lesson had been poorly prepared
nud the Issue of thunderbolts was soon
expected to shower from ibis pedagogical Olympus,   At last It came.
Mr. .Icnkins brought bis list down
upou thc plain deal board with a
thump lhat awoke every languid mind
ln the room. "Is this what you come
io school for?" he began, as if address-
lug a jury. "Is this the way you use
one of the most precious gifts that God
has given to you? Hero yon are. a
whole class of bright boys and girls.
With brains enough to do anything you
desire in this great world, throwing
away the greatest opportunity of your
lives. If this was an Institution for
weak-minded children i would have
some compassion for you. But your
faces arc all bright aud your eyes are
clear, aud yet you will come to mo
with such a lesson as Ibis!" Mr. Jenkins punctuated every sentence with
that echoing thump nu the desk which
carried conviction aud mortification to
the minds of each boy and girl before
lt was then that the red-headed girl
ou the back seat wrote ".lovi non
placet" r'il is not pleasing to Jupiter").

pride, lie bad no favorites; at least,
such never appealed In thc little commonwealth which he held in the hollow of bis hand. Hut in (icraldlne lie
was intensely Interested, aud he often
found in her his greatest irritation.
While Mr. Jenkins held the whole of

name of "Jupiter," und it fitted so well

���uud lu this remark (icraldlne hud.
christened hliu. Many times he had
thought be had heard the name of Jupiter Jenkins, but he had never been able
to capture one of these erring mortals.
Of course, he knew he was called Jupiter���he had beeu told so by admiring
parents, who knew he would be pleased, and he was.
Hut It was with thc red-headed girl
that this story Is chiefly concerned.
She was the only human problem Hint
Jupiter Jenkins could not solve. Oor-
aldilie Collin hail beeu an Inmate of the
schoolroom only a lew days when Mr.
Jenkins discovered that she possessed
an unusual mind. He laid his plans to
make the most he could of Iter. He
was accustomed to use Ihe parable of
the talents in Ihe schoolroom, and to
say that lo whom much was given
much would be required. The getting
of lessons was an easy matter lo tieraldine Collin. She uot ouly leained
them, but the truths and principles
were digested, unit sank Into her mind,
clearly understood and stored nway,
until the day which would call them
into use.
Jupiter Jenkins was accustomed to
say thnt hardly more than one child in
twenty really digested knowledge.
lie had come to complain to Geral-
dlne's mother that her daughter sometimes failed In her lessons, and that lt
was Inexcusable ln one who had such a
mind. "I have come to tell you this,
Mrs, Coffin, wheu I would not take the
trouble to Inform another mother, for
this reason and It alone: (icraldlne has
an unusual mind, and she can make
anything she pleases of herself. If she
knows you and I are ono ln this matter, she will not care to trouble us by
neglecting to get her lessons."
Qeraldlne's mother wns as much flattered as any other woman would be,
and, of course, Jupiter Jenkins was upheld. Thus he dealt wltb Qeraldlne,
conscious of his power. He endeavored
tO make her fall, and, whenever she did.
she was compelled to remain after
school and get her lessons.
But. wilh a wonderful mind, there
wns a somewhat wayward nature In
thetexlureof Qeraldlne Coffin's personality. She wns often rough and boy-
denlsh. and she caused no end of trouble. With the deep Interest the young
master took In her, a sense of power
developed. What! ^'r- -lenklns supposed he had her solidly In his control,
tliere would burst forth a fit of "don't
care" lu her which astonished and
ularined htm.
Then the thunderbolts flew to punctuate the master's fluent words of Indignation. "When one has the mighty
gift   of   brains,"  he   thundered, "and
make the girl fall. And wnen'she did
fall he did his best to make lt uncomfortable for her. She had to remalu
after school and get the whole lesson.
Jupiter made her recite It all, "precept
upon precept," so to speak.
He hnd conceived the ambition to
make a teacher of the girl. He broached
the subject to Mrs. Coffin. "Geraldine,"
he began, "is cut ont to be a teacher."
Mrs. Coffin started in astonishment.
"Yes she Is," he affirmed, with a thunderbolt, "nud she ought to be sent to
a normal school. I never went to one.
nnd what 1 know about teaching has
been gained by experience. But there
ls no mistake. The learning of methods means something In these days, and
I'm sure that if Geraldine is sent to a
normnl school she will make a flrst-rate
.Mrs. Coffin thought It over for a few
days, and then came to the conclusion
that Mr. Jenkins was right. That was*
the usual conclusion about Mr. Jenkins
In the little village. The idea was
placed before Geraldine. aud when she
heard of Jupiter's proposal she smiled
a smile that made her mother look at
her twice. But (Jeraldlne had tbe key
to certain kinds of human nature which
was far beyond her years. She thought
! she would like to go, aud lt was a great
| Joy when she came to Jupiter's throne,
and In her sweetest and calmest nian-
j tier thanked hlm for his kindness, and
said she would do her best to deserve
It. That was the happiest day that
Jupiter had ever had In the school. He
did not understand It, but tliere was a
singing ln his heart as homelike as the
singing of a ten kettle and as soft as a
cat's purr,
(Jeraldlne took new Interest In school.
She tried no more of her subtle ways to
disturb Jupiter, and the boys found ti
change In her, which at once set their
former Interest at naught.
"She aiu't no more fun." they all
agreed, and they troubled her no more.
Geraldine entered the normal school
and passed her preliminary examlna
life's road lies before to choose what Is
beat and highest, to be lazy aud languid, and not to reach the arm to griup
the golden apple of Hesperhles, Is the
greatest wrong."
ll wns then thut Geraldine, her color
slightly brighter and her head a irlfle
higher, would return to her seat and
write, "Jovl BOO placet"���"It Is not
pleasing to Jupiter."
Tliere were ccilaln rare fads about
Qeraldlne Hint Jupiter Jenkins, in his
teacher's enthusiasm, had not nol iced.
One of these was (hat she was a very
pMtty girl, But If lie had been impervious lo this fact there were olhers who
had not, aud among those were some of
the big iKiys In the school.
Geraldine wns growing, and she was
now tall und lithe of figure, with her
big blue eyes clearer and more expressive, as she looked at people. The true
soul of a rather designing maiden-wus
showing forth from them. She was
glad to receive attentions, and It smote
Jupiter hnrd when he observed that she
walked with oue and then with another
in the still and balmy spring evenings.
Just why lt smote him as it did Mr.
Jenkins never knew until a few years
Slut It did, and Geraldlne's face seemed to have framed Itself Into the center
of his thoughts. She recurred to bis
consciousness constantly, aud when he
thought of these big boys he was truly
He had another conference with Mrs.
Coffin, ln which he suggested that Geraldine had better be kept In tbe house
and made to give closer attention to her
lessons. When he called ber In recitations be was also doing his best to
tlon* wilh extraordinary success. She
was one of the highest three out of a
large class. The veteran principal of
Hie school knew human nnture al a
glance. He wrote lo Jupiter a letter
which confirmed all that worthy had
said aboul the wild, nomadic (ieraliline.
When (ieraliline had finished her
course In the uoinial school she received
the highest commendation, and the old
principal happened lo find a good place
for her lu the same city where Jupiter
was milking his way.
When Geraldine had come Into his
office ni the end of the llrst quarter it
was the tlrst liiiliuailou that he hud
received of her presence In tin* city.
She said she hnd eoiiie to make a payment, nnd while she spoke poor Jupiter
was turning ull sorts of ruddy colors.
"But I hadn't heard you were here,
(Jeraldlne," he   said.    "I   have   been
thinking of you. too ,nnd wondering If
1 should hear from yon.   Of course, I.
knew I should.  But somehow I cannot
get you ont of my head, girl." This wasf 1
punctured with   one of   tbe old-time 1
thunderbolts.   "Fact ls, Geraldine, I've(��T
only Just found out why I treated youi
so hnrd when ln school.   And It wns
simply this���I loved you!   I want you
always; I want you to make me happy,

Pachyderm's Worst Foe.
It writes inoreuible thnt so small and
harmless an animal as a mouse is able to
frighten an elephant almost out of his
senses, says the New York Sun. One little mouse in the hay on whieh tbey arc
feeding will stampede an entire herd. In
their native land there are little animals, known as chaeanas, which feed on
a small, sour berry of which elephants are
very fond. They live in settlements,
something after the manner of prairie
dogs, under the berry bushes. When
feeding, the elephants trample the little
towns, and the -cliaeanas, in their fright,
run up tlio tubes of the elephants'
trunk?. Their long, sharp claws catch
in the flesh and they can not be ejected.
The more violently the monster blows
through its coiled trunk the more firmly
the hooked claws of the little animal become iinliediled in tho flesh. Inflammation and dentil arc the result, ln captivity the elephants think they are iu danger of the deadly chaeanas when they see
a mouse.

Cuban Possibilities.
Louisville Courier-Journal: It is known
that the natural resources of Cuba have
never hml any adequate development.
The Spanish taskmaker has stood over
the laborer ready to seize his earnings ln
oppressive exactions while capital has
been harassed and discouraged for want
of the protection of Just laws. It has
been estimated that not more than one-
tenth ot the possible product of the land
has been realized; and while this may be
an exaggeration, yet it Is known that the
disproportion la enormous. Give Cuba a
good governmelnt and a rational economic system and capital wiil flow tn
abundantly, labor will be encouraged, improved machinery will be aet up, increasing Ssllke the productivity of labor and its
recompense. Under such conditions
Cuba will have much more to sell, and
so win be able to buy a great deal more,
and In both cases the United States, by
their proximity and ouher circumstances,
must furnish the natural market In which
Cubans will deelre to buy and sell.

Tho Spanish-American war started
witli apparently sincere protestations
on the part ofthe United States of waging a war for humanity only. Ouomorn-
Ing, through Dewey's exploit, the
United States awoke to find itself in
possession of the Philippine Islands.
There could be no valid objection Interposed townrd holding those islands as a
war measure. But the spirit of con-
. quest seemed to have caught a larg
part of the American people, and th
cry went up that theso islands ought
to  lie hold for the good of the country.
Again, a few days since, when the
Spanish govern ment. bank showed
signs t.f failing, great fears were <.:;-
pressed that suoh financial embarrassment might terminate the war before
Ihe United States should be able to
capture l'orto Rico.
Now ii is given ont that it will be
necessary to capture the Caroline Islands, Spanish colonies botween the
Philippine islands and tho Hawaiian
Islands, and that tho latter in their
eagerness to Ik* annexed to the United
States may help.
[u the meantime, the Cuban recon-
centrados have probably all perished
of starvation. Is this a war for humanity or a war of conquest?

Wshington .May 80.���About 20 governors of states und territories have replied
to Secretary Alger's telegrams asking for
their views regarding the Idling of the
present volunteer regiments to their maximum strength before beginning thc formation  of new organizations.      Some of
these Indicate a preference for the recruiting of entirely new regiments as, Under
thc lirst call, leaving the present organizations with the number of men now contained in them, though practically all
promise the governmen any amount of
troops that arc wanted. it is the president's desire, however, that the organizations already formed should be filled to
their maximum strength as the law provides and this policy will be carried out in
the recruiting under tne second call. The
apportionment to the states has been
made up but not yet given to the public.
Through urgent representations to Secretary Alger some of the slates were permitted under the first call to furnish a
greater number of (roops than they were
legally entitled to on the ba-sis of popular representation. Consequently in railing thc 76,000 men under tlie second call
these inequalities will be remedied as far
as practicable with the result that some
of the states may not be called on to
furnlih any of tlie men needed. This
course probably may give rise to discontent in states where men wish to serve,
but it is regarded as the only fair way to
Adjutant Oeneral Corbin said that it
had lieen definitely decided today to use
about 50,000 of the volunteers to be raised
under the new call in filling out deficient
regiments already organized under thc
old call. It would take about that number he thought, to fill each company up
to the maximum limit of 1000 men. Thc
remaining 25,000 men will be organized
into regiments of three battalions each
and distributed among the stall's and territories in exactly thc same proportion as
under the first call. No cavalry however,
would be accepted, and only a limited
number of artillery.

Washington, May 20.���Naval authorities have advanced another stage in their
calculations on the status of Cervera's
fleet at Santiago. They not only have
good reason to believe be is bottled up
but, as an officer expressed it today, the
cork is in the bottle and it is practically
impossible for the fleet to make an exit
from the harbor, day or night.
It is felt that this condition of the
Spanish lleet is not only important from
present strategic standpoint, but of momentous concern to the entire future of
the war, as the crippling of this, the most
effective naval force that Spain possesses, will leave her such scant nuval resources as to make prolongation of thc
war impossible.

Key West, May 20.���The movements of
the American war vessels are now
shrouded witli only slight uncertainty.
The composition of the three squadrons
has been changed but the exact completion and names of the ships under caeh
commander is not permitted, for strategic riMisons, to Ik* telegraphed.
Concerning the statement that Cervera's fleet is bottled up at Santiago, it
has been accepted that Schley could
maintain the blockade of the harbor there
and annihilate thc Spanish lleet if it is
found outside.
The fact that Schley is now thought to
lie outside Santiago libs given free rein
to Sampson who is known to lie in position to proceed eastward and effect a
juncture of the powerful squadrons or, re-
tu.ning to Havana, io resume operations
in that vicinity..
It is now accepted as a fact that Schley
is to be permitted to work out the problem off Santiago.
The blockading squadron under Commodore Wutson is doing duty along the
western const of the island.

Denver, May 20.--A News special from
Washington says:
Senator Leo Mantle of Montana may
organize a provisional cavalry regiment
in the mountain states, of whieh he
would go to the front as colonel. He has
already received tenders of enough companies from Montana alone to mako the
regiment, but he feels other mountain
states will desire and should he given opportunity to contribute troops if the regiment is to be organized.
Washington, May 30.���At 12:30 o'clock
this (Monday) morning the navy department received a dispatch from Commodore Schley announcing definitely that he
had located Admiral Cervera's Cape Verde
squadron In the bay of Santiago de Cuba.
The commodore states that he himself
had recognized the vessels of the Spanish
j lleet.
While naval officials have been moder-
| ately certain for several days that Cer*
I vera's squadron was in the harbor of Santiago, the ollicial announcement from
Commodore Schley was received by the officers on duty at the department with intense satisfaction. Assurance is now
doubly sure thut the Spanish llget is bottled up and the cork is in the bottle. It
is not believed that Cervera will attempt
to escape from the predicament in which
he now finds himself, as such a course
would surely result in the destruction of
his vcssols and the loss of many lives
precious to Spain. The suggestion is
made, however, that the Spaniards may
blow up the ships rather than have them
fall into the hands of Schley, as they eer-
tuinly will if they remain in the harbor.
The definiteness of Commodore Schley's
dispatch would seem to indicate that ho
has effected a landing near Santiago and
made a personal investigation of the harbor. It would be impossible, from the entrance of the bay, definitely to seo and
recognize the Spanish vessels, but by effecting a landing at some jioint on either
side of the entrance a vantage point could
be gained from wliich tho entire harbor,
it is believed, could be examined, ln all
probability Commodore Schley or one of
his trusted ollicers has succeeded in performing this hazardous undertaking iu
order to obtain the valuable information
contained in his dispatch.
It is impossible, owing to the lateness of
the hour, to obtain any ollicial expression
upon the news from Commodore Schley.
What effect the certainty that Cervera is
practically helpless will have on the plans
of the naval station with reference to the
invasion of Cuba can only be conjectured,
ilie transportation of land forces to the
island, it is thought, was delayed because
of uncertainty concerning the location of
the Spanish squadron. If tnat understanding is correct, the probability of an
early invasion of Culm is strong. It is not
unlikely that the movement of troops,
which has been delayed from time to
time, will begin this week, and that before the end of the week the United States
forces will have obtained a substantial
foothold upon Cuban soil.
Will Schley Uo Inf
Ollicial advices received tonight from
Commodore Schley contain no information such as is reported from Madrid, although it is known that they were written after the battle was said to have occurred. The advices from Commodore
Schley indicate that he is now on station for several days guarding tlie entrance to the bay of Santiago do Cuba.
Commodore .Schley has not only his own
squadron, but two or three vessels besides
at his command, and it is not believed to
lie possible for the Spanish admiral to escape with his fleet.
No information is obtainable as to tbe
intentions of Commodore Schley. Whether he will endeavor to force an entrance
to the bay and seek a battle with the
Spanish squadron is not known, but such
a course at present is not regarded as
likely. It would be better, in the opinion of somo naval officials to keep fervent and his vessels safely in the burlier, where they are us absolutely useless
as tbey  would be at the bottom of the
I sea.

Hul there is method iu Sampson's inactivity. Until he is definitely advised that
the Spanish fleet is imprisoned iu Santiago
de Culm harbor he is here in a position to
move quickly in any direction where the
Spanish ships may appear. If the Spaniards should escape Schley and make for
eastern seaports of the United States he
is in a position in a few hours run to cut
them oil' in the Windward passage. One
or more scout boats are kept in that posi-
tion constantly. On the other hand if
the Spaniards should como around the
western end of Cuba with the hope of getting into Havana he is here where he can
intercept them on short notice. it is
irksome to-wait here day after day.
A most vigilant watch is kept by the
fleet day and night in Iiojh* that the Spanish licet may come iu sight. The sailors
hang over tbe rails scanning the horizon
and the gunners Iio in the shadow of the
big rifles, longing for a chance to see the
monsters thundering.

New York, May SO,���A special dispatch
to the Tribune from Washintgoii says:
Orders have at last gone forward to
Major (ieneral Shatter at Tampa to cm-
bark the greater portion of his corps, Including all the regulars and a few of the
most efficient volunteer regiments on
board the transports gathered at that
place and the aggressive military movement wliich has been so frequently predicted and so often delayed for one cause
or another is an accomplished fact before
tbe end of this week. The strongest units
of Admiral Sampson's reorganized squadron will convoy the expedition and cover
its lauding at u point now definitely designated.
Simultaneously the most rigid censorship of press dispatches tlint has so far
been undertaken by the government will
lie put into operation at Tampa, and Key
West tonight and no message relating to
the movement* of troops or ships, or in
any way speculating upon the expedition
will be permitted on the wires. If this
means of preventing publication of information wliich would be exceedingly valuable to Spain is not wholly suet essful, the
censorship will be promptly extended to
the mails. It can lie confidently asserted
tbat beyond Hie secretary of war and secretary of the navy, the president will par*
in it no civilian to enjoy his confidence in
this matter until a landing on the foreign
territory shall have beeu actually accomplished and lieneral Shatter himself will
have sealed orders, whose contents will be
known only to Ueneral Miles and General
Corbin, until the expedition is safely at
j sea. Admiral Sampson's sole instruction
was to guard thc expedition und to cooperate with Oeneral Shelter under the
hitter's direction.
Washington. May 27.���The    president

Hy the President of the United States
���A Proclamation:
Whereas, An act of congress' was approved on the 2.)th day of April, 1898,
entitled, "An act declaring that war existed between the United States of America and the kingdom of Spain"; and
Whereas, An act of congress entitled,
"An act to provide for temporarily increasing the military establishment in the
United States in time of war, and for
ober purposes," approved April 22, 1898,
the president is authorized, in order to
raise a Volunteer army, to issue his proclamation lulling for volunteers to servo
iu the army of tho United States;
Now, therefore, I, William McKinley,
president of Ihe United States, by virtuo
of the power vested in me by the constitution and laws, and deeming sullicient occasion lo exist, have thought fit to call
forth, and hereby do call forth, volunteers
to the aggregate number of 75,000, in addition to tho volunteers called forth by
my proclamation of tlie 23rd of April in
the present year; the same to bo apportioned, as far as practicable, among tlie
soveral states and trereitorics and tlie District of Columbia, according to population, and to serve for three years, unless
sooner discharged. Thc proportion of each
nrm of service and details of enlistment
and organisation will be made known
through the war department.
ln witness whereof, 1 have hereunto set
my hand and caused the seal of the United States to lie atlixed. Done at the
city of Washington, this 25th day of

No Occasion   for  Harry.
Washington, Muy 25.���Secretary Alger
said this afternoon that the additional recruits will be not recruited from the national guard, as were tho first 125,000, Tiut
the enlistments will be open.
The regulations referred to in the proclamation under which enlistments will
be conducted have not yet been prepared
and it is thought there is no occasion
for a hurry in this matter until the full
draft called for in the drat proclamation
has been secured.
It is further stated that the decision
to issue the additional call for volunteers
was not reached until the cabinet meeting yesterday. The call, it is supposed,
here, indicates a determination to press
tho campaign actively and vigorously
I from now on.
First  Call   Nearly   Filled.
Washington, May 25.���One hundred
and twelve thousand men havo now been
mustered into the volunteer army and official reports show the mater number
of these arc ready to move to the front.
Two-thirds of the states have entirely
completed their muster.
Tlio failure of some of the states, notably four or five in the south, to furnish
the men called for up to this time, is a
surprise to army ollicers here, but ig ascribed not to lack of patriotism, but to
tho belief probably shared by many national guardsmen who had home ties and
business connections which they could not
well afford to give up, that plenty of
other persons not so encumbered would
readily be found to take their places.
San Francisco, May 20.���Four train
loads of Montana volunteers arrived iu

marched along they were presented with
flowers and fruits in abundance,
Tho troops were in good physical condition, but were a little fatigued from

fact having been realized, instruction has
been given to every private in the United States army in the art of taking care
of himself in case ho is hurt. He carries
at hia belt what is called a "first-aid packet," containing a roll of bandages, an-
antiseptics compress and an antiseptic
gauze, inclosed in a sealed rubber casing.
If ho gets a bullet wound and is in a
condition to use his wits, he stuffs a plug
of the gauze into the hole and applies a
bandage. This may save his life and give
the scrgon a chance when tliere is an opportunity for treating him.

slight. Tbe rider is thus robbed of the
warning which he is accustomed to attend and repeats or continues the strain
upon the heart. As in other similar cases
the effect is to render that dilatution'pcr-
mauent which was at first but temporary,
and to cause an increase inthe muscles
of the heart by repeated exertion. Tlie
heart produced is of large dimensions and
of thick walls���a condition which may,
perhaps, give little uneasiness to its owner, but which a medical man will view
with considerable distrust and apprehension. Weakly and elderly people cannot
bo too often told that no exercise is more
easily abused, though if taken in sensible
measure few are more healthful or enjoyable.
New Vork. May 111. The stale department has mailed to (ieneral .Merritt his
exhaustive instructions for the government of the Philippines, -ays the Washington  correspondent   of the Tribune.
These embody not only full details lor
the control of the military and naval
forces in establishing United States sovereignty over the Philippine group, which
were prepared by the war and navy departments for incorporation in the in-
; si ructions, but are  understood to clothe
j the commanding general with greater dtt*
Cretionary powers than have ever up lo
j this time been granted to au agent of this
government. Kxeept in his relations with
I foreign powers, growing out of possible
Complications in the east, which nre lo
; be referred to Washington for negotiation,
! (ieneral Metritis control of affairs will
\ be practically supreme. The instructions
throughout bear every, evidence that the
I I'nited States intends to retain permanent
��� control of ths islands.
In this connection it is understood today that arrangements are already being
made to lay a cable from San Francisco
: hy way of Hawaii, directly to Manila and
j that work will be undertaken as a matter
of necessity the moment the authority
for expenditure can lie secured from congress.
Twenty 'I'lioiiHiini: Men.
By direction of the president  formal
orders have been prepared for issue today
i milling 8000 men to the department of the
I Pacific under (ieneral Merritt, Increasing
[the force to .0,000 men. While (ieneral
I Merritt was promised a week ago that
j this increase would   be made  if  possible.
difficulties   insurmountable in character
were  presented  and   il   was only  on   the
success achieved  by  the war department
yesterday,   ill   securing   (lie   execution   of
contracts much  curlier  than anticipated.
Hint it was found possible lo redeem ihe
I promise.        These   related    nol    only '   to
j transportation   but   lo  Ihc  anus,  ammunition, uniform ami oilier requisite equipment) it   hilling  been   feasible  up  lo this
time  to  secure these essentials  lor  only

Ueneral Merritt waa informed last night.
of Ibe improved prospects for augment*
ing his force and was requested to designate such additional volunteer regiments
from the east as he desired for duly iu
the Philippines with the assurance that
his wishes would  be respected.
It is understood that he contemplates
asking for al least one regiment from
] New York, another from Illinois and from
the District of Columbia a third. It is
I likely Colonel .lay Torrey's mounted
i Rocky mountain riflemen will be added
I to the expedition, which is thus far dc-

Mole St. Nicholas. Haiti. May 30.���Tha
following dispatch has been received here
from the correspondent of the Associated
Press   with   Hie  American   Beet   off  Santiago:
(Ml Santiago do Cuba, May 80.   Com*
module Schley and the Hying squadron
have tbe Spanish fleet Ixittlcil up in the
harbor of Santiago. Ily thc most clever
manoeuveiing the commodore allowed the
Spaniards to think he had left in disgust.
They took the bait und ran into tbe harbor. Schley moved down this morning
and at 0 o'clock hy going close to the harbor he saw the Cristobal Colon. Maria
Teresa,  and  two  torpedo  laiats.
Commodore Schley has acted upon his
own information and judgment for six
days and believes the whole Spanish lleet
is there. After the discovery of the lleet
he weut to breukfa-t saying:
"I liaie got them and they will never
get home.''
The auxiliary cruiser St. Paul iirriviyl
here this morning and was sent to Mole
St. Nicholas wilh dispatches. She captured a coul ship, which was sent to Key
West by Captain Sigsbee iu charge of a
prise Clew. The coal was undoubtedly intended for the Spanish Hect. It is believed there is nol much coal at Santiago.
The ollicers and men of the flying
squadron are jubilant over the fact that,
thc location of the Spanish fleet has finally
been definitely established.
The temperature here is 110 in the
shade and in the steel turrets thc heat is
actually beyond the power of imagination. The American ships here are the
Brooklyn, Texas. Massachusetts, Iowa,
Marblehead and Vixen, a torpedo gunboat.
San Francisco capitalists have undertaken to organize and equip a mounted
regiment of volunteers.
