General Shaffer's Headquarters,
Santiago, July 15.���General Shafter
boars his] honors modestly. To a correspondent of the |Associated Press he
"The enemy has surrendered all
territory and troops east of Santiago.
The terms were dictated from Washington. It has been a hard campaign,
one of the hardest I ever saw. The
difficulties were groat. The character
of the country and tho roads made it
seem almosl imposailho to advance.
The problem was hard but all difficulties have been satisfactorily surmounted. Ouv troops behaved gallantly.
They fought like heroes and I am
proud to have commanded them. Darin:;' all ihe hardships they have suffered, ihey have shown great spirit.
They tlosorvo to conquer.
"The resistance ot Ihe onomy has
been exceedingly stubborn, General
Torn! has proved hiuiself a noble man
worthy of any man's steel. The negotiations which culminated in the
surrender have been dragging on fer
ti ii day,', with intermissions oil Sunday and Monday, when onr batteries
aud fleets bombarded the enemy's
positions. Throughout theso periods
of truce General Toral has shrewdly
played for time, always dgolining to
surrender unconditionally and finally
when hard pressed, fell hack on the
statement that he was merely a subordinate and eould not surrender without
the sanction of his superiors, except
under penalty of being eourtmartialed.
At 1'ie same timo he seemed to intimate that personally he thought it
hopeless to hold out any longer."
Il was at the personal interview held
by General Shafter with General
Toral yesterday that the Amerioan
general made the Spanish commander
understand thai the temporizing must
cease, and before noon today a categorical affirmation to his offer must be
received or the bombardment of the
oity would begin in earnest. In the
meantime all the plans had been perfected. The delay was utilized to good
advantage. The American lines had
been extended until Santiago was
nearly surrounded and the light batteries had been so posted as to be ablo
to do more effective work. In addiiton
arrangements had been made to laud
troops at Cabanas, the western entrance of the harbor of Santiago.
Tho Spanish batteries opposite Morro
Castle were to be bombarded and
stormed. Their guns were thou to be
turned upon the city. General Law-
son's division'il the same time was to
fall on the enemy's flank under cover
ol our artillery tire, we could then
havo   invaded     their' lines,   and have
driven them into tho city.
(leneral Toral must have realized that
ho was trapped anil that to hold out
longer must mean a useless sacrifice
of his nun. Still ho made ono last
effort to gain more time this morning.
While nominally yielding to the torms
General      Shafter   proposed    before   8
o'clock he sent 0 communication to
GeneralJShafter ouclosing][a copy of 11
telegram from Captain-General Blanco
explaining that the surrender of such
an important position as Santiago, and
lhe abandonment of eastern Cuba,
would require tho dircctjsanotion of the
"Madrid government, and requesting
thai time to hear from Madrid be
niven. At the same time Blanco authorized General Toral, if it was agreeable to the American general to appoint
commissioners on each side to arrange
tho terins of capitulation of the forces
under the command oil the conditions
of Iheir parole and transportation to
Spain,pending the sanction of Madrid.
He also communicated the names of
the commissioners he had selected,
namely Mr. Robert Mason, British
vice consul; General Torol's staff,
Colonel Fontaine   and General Escara-
jao. This communication was so
ambiguous that it might all he upset
by tho refusal of Madrid to sanction the terms agreed to by tho com
missioners, audJGeneral Shafter resolved
to have, all the ambiguity removed before proceeding further.
At 11 o'clock he mounted his horse
and together with General Miles and
his staff, he rode, to the front. At
General Wheeler's headquarters General Shafter, General Miles, Colonel
Mans and an interpreter lefl their
Tetiuue and passed on over Iho Amerioan trenches with a flag of truce lo
the Mango tree under which the interview was held yesterday. They
were soon joined b.- General Toral,
his chief of staff and the two other
commissioners appointed by him.
General Miles took no part in the
negotiations. He has been careful
since his arrival here not to assume
the direction of affairs, or to detract
in the least from the glory of General
Shaffer's achievements. General Shafter insisted at the outset that the
commissioners to he. appointed should
have permanent authority to make
and conclude the terms of surrender
in accordance with the general conditions of the Amerioan demands.
After some parleying General Toral
acceded to this, explaining that since
his last communication he had received
direct authority from Captain General
Blanco to do so.. This being the
main point the interview concluded.
Before parting General Shaffer complimented Genoral Toral highly on the
skill and gallantry of his resistance.
Upon the return to General Wheeler's
headquarters the news of the complete
victory was communicated to General
Lawton and to General Kent and to
the brigade commanders. A scene of
general rejoicing followed. General
Shafter held a regular levee before he
dismounted, and was congratulated
and complimented by all. He immed
lately appointed General Wheeler
General Lawton and Captain Smiley
to be the commissioners on liis behalf
to treat with those appointed by General Toral. He then issued orders to
permit tho Americans troops to retire from the trenches, but absolutely
forbidding any soldiers and aivilians
going into the Spanish lines. The
refugees areato bo permitted to return
to their homes, but neither the American troops nor Cuban authorities are
to be permitted to enter the city at
present. The order as to the Cubans
is very specific. They have shown a
'disposition to loot everything and any
place, but they are not [to have the
privilege of glutting their appetites
for plunder in Santiago. A guard is
to be maintained about the city, and
the camps of the Amerioan soldiers
aro to be removed just to the front or
to the rear of theMines as is most practicable in the various cases. The
change of camp will undoubtedly improve the health of the troops.
Tho whole purpose of the American
commander now is to protect the
health of the army, and especially
from the dread contagion. It is claimed
there is no fever in Santiago, but
Ihe eity is full of tilth and stench,
and if the United States troops are
allowed to go in, it will undoubtedly
become a pest hole.
Washington, July 15.���There was a
long and anxious wait todayjto hear
further news from the commissioner.
For is hours no word came from either
(Icneral Shafter or (ienoral Miles. Wheu
the cabinet met at 11 o'clock there
was positively nothing from tho front
which wonld serve as a guide for the
deliberations. It was thought the cable
had been interrupted but on inquiring of General Greeley he gave assurance that the cable was not cut. There
upon Secretary Alger sent a despatch
inquiring as to how far* the surrender
had proceeded. No answer came,
whilo the cabinet was in session.
Meanwhile General Greely cabled to
Santiago and an answer was received
at* 2 :28 p. m., and indicated that the
negotiations wero yet in progress,
but as the despatch was submitted to
the president no details wero given
out. Toward the middle of the afternoon despatches from General Miles
and General Shafter began to arrrive.
Such portions as were made publio
showed that* the Spanish had raised
some rathei unexpected questions.
The   most   important  of these was an

from Klondyke, having on board meu
who left Dawson as lato as June 28.
They came it)) the Yukon on the
steamers Ora and Goddard which made
the run from Dawson to White Horse
in five and a half days. Included in
the party were Dick Butler and threo
brothers who cleared up ��400,000, and
others who did nearly as well. The
clean up cannot be estimated as tho
men gave incorrect figures to escape
the royalty. The Dominion government, they say, must havo collected
half a million dollars in royalty.
Soapy Smith, the notorious confidence man, was killed at Skagway
last week by Frank Reid, tho city
surveyor. A returned Dawsonite robbed a, sack of gold and Smith defied
the authorities to arrest one of his
gang. lie whipped out* a Winchester
with which he shot Reid through tho

Whether the Colonist is right or uot
with regard to tho institution of these

remark that tho government will not

Six teams compi tod for tlio Kolapoor
eup today, utuucly, (iiigliuid, Guuudti,
Gruernsoy, Victoria, india uud Jersey.
Though tlie CanadiiuiH were defeated
they did siiiui' oxcellout shooting, Ihoir
marksmanship being superior to thai
exhibited in lasl year's couipetition
for the cup. At tho 200 ynrds range,
Staff Sergeant Hayhurst led oft with 11
bull's eye und in this us well as tho
400 yard and 500 yard ranges, his
shooting wasj decidedly good. IJicu
tenant Ross who came rather low in
the 200 yards distance, recovered himself at 400 yards, milking six consecutive "bull's eyor, tho seventh shot being
an inner. Somo fine targets were
made by the Canadi ins at 000 ynvda.
Sergeant Broadhural topping tho list
with si:; bull's eyes and an inner. Ill
luck followed Lieuti muit Smith tit Ihis
range, his sec:',* ! ein c 21 out i f 11 p is-
sible 35. The match 1-1 uuuiud aftor
the rajah of Kolapoor with whom tho
event originated in 1871.
The compel ition i-' li raited to ��� Hi-
cient volunteers ;:i teams uf eight.
Ono team from tho motln ��� count ly, ono
team from tho militia or volunteers
of nny British colony or dependency,
and one team from thi un mbers home
on leave of the India staff 1 orps or of
the covenanted or am ovi minted sorvico
of Indian volunteers or all four. Last
year the cup was curried off by the
Australians from Victoria, a team
brought in Bisley by reason of the
jubilee celebration. Although ten
teams were ( ntere.l, the largest number taking part in this competition.
Lust year tbe Canadian team ranked
fourth with 7.^1 points. Today tho cup
wan won by the Guernsey team with
744 points, England and Victoria tiling for second placo with 711 points
to the credit of each, Canada following
with a seiire of 7ij*'i, while Jersey and
India got 718 and 7(1(1 respectvely.
Tho individual scores of the Canadians at the three ranges were as follows :
Hayhurst llli, McVittie, 83, Blair 80,
Forbes 95,, Ross 90, Broadhurst 98,
Hutcheson 90, Smith 82.
In the Centaur unsquadded competition, seven shots at 500 yards open,
Miller, McVittie, Blair. Hutcheson
and Smith e:ich today made possibles.
Sergeant Simpson in the Golden
Penny, seven short at 200 yards, made
a score of 84.
For the Association cup, seven shots
at 000 yards, Private Davidson. 08th
battalion, made a score of III'.
The weather today was very favorable to good scoring, although the
heat was excessive. There is much
disappointment among tho members of
the Canadian toam over losing the
Kolapoor cup. Captain Hutcheson at
the 000 yards range shot at the wrong
target, thereby destroying what otherwise would have been a most excellent
score. Sergeant Broadhurst, with a
total of 08, made the besl score of any
competition in the match, In the
Wautago rapid firing competition eight
shots, 200 yards, open to all coiners,
Private Swaino niade a score of 21,
For tho Gregory, seven shots at 200
yards, Lieutenant Forbes made 82,
no one was allowed ashore. Colonel
Allan returned this evening to Baiquiri to repair the French cable at that
point, and establish regular communication between Playa and Santiago,
s ' that the army will be in telegraphic
communication with Washington us
soon us tho city is entered.
The perplexing problem is bow to
carry out the pledge made by General
Shafter. It would have been no easy
undertaking to remove 20,000 men
across tho Atlantic under the best conditions, but the reports that indicated
tlie existence of yellow fever among
the Spaniards threatened all kinds of
difficulties. After aliil was decided
to bo only a matter of money, and
ii' the prico offered is large enough,
steamship Inns can doubtlessly he
found to undertake lhe transportation, In the interval a large force
will have to ke kept a! Santiago, but
no troublo is anticipated in making
the troops comparatively   comfortable,
An epidemic of yellow fever is not
Soorotary Alger said after Ihe eon-
fen nee thai the Spaniards will not he
r 'turned Iheir arms, ainl thai they
must surrender at once on the terms
oSerod, or an immediate attack on
Santiago will 1 e made.

Continued from First Paso,
insisiance lhal the Spanish troops
should retain their arms when lliey
returned to Spain, Toral was willing
to give up the arms to Shafter, provided they were returned whin en
reaching Spain. This was attributed
merely to Spanish sensitiveness at the
humiliation involved in laying down
their arms, at the same time it was a
point which neither side appeared
ready to yield, but General Shafter
was confident a settlement would he
reached by the end of the day.
