Wahin;;t ui.July 14���Tho first chapter iu the land campaign of the* United
Slates ngainsl Spain closed today,
when the Spaniards, colors gave place

Next will follow the transportation of
the Spanish troops to their native land

\ig bi ck over the record of those two

nearly a thousand Spanish sailors hav,!

'Spanish soldiers havo died in the trou-

said   Secretary   Alger,   after receiving
; the  news of   Santiago's formal  surrender   and   then if need be, Hav; na.
| Tho secretary was in excellent spirits
Ho  has  been  more anxious than he
f dared  show as   to the condition of our
sick  soldiers   and   looked with appro-
I hension  upon the p  isibility of a pro-
| longation of the struggle in   the uu-
1 healthy valley of Santiago.   The seore-
'tary said that the Porto Ricau expedition will go forward immediately. It
will oomprise new men entirely. Thc
warriors in the trenches before Snntigo
havo distinguished themselves and il
is not dec ned prud 'lit to bring them
I into  unnecessary   contact   with  new
troops in view of thedanger of spreading contagion.
The sick sol li�� rs will be nursed
back to health and be brought back
to the United States as soon as thoy
can be safely removed. Immune regulars will be ordered to Santiago to
guard the town, aud as slated in the
despatches yesterday, two companies
of regular- are already under orders
lo proceed. The size of the Porto
Kicaa expedition will depend upon
General Miles' wishes, although il is
believed thnl 25,000 men will bo sulli-
oienl for the purpose. At San Juan
the  navy  will he of greator assistance
Ihan il was at Santiago, owing lo the
possibility of approaching the town
more   closely without   risking contact
with mines. Goneral Brooke is uow
on his way to Washington by the
direction of Secretary Alger, so that
lie will be iu a position to make his
views known. The experience gained
iu despatching Shatter's expedition
il is oxpectod will aid the oilicials in
iheir determination to mak
work of the Porto Ricau affair,    i
The line begins at Accerados, about 15
miles west of Santiago harbor, and
then runs due north about 2*"> miles
io Paluio Soriana. Had the line oon-
tl'iued due north it would have passed
west of Holquin, thus taking in the
Spanish garrison at that place. Evidently General Toral wished to avoid
the inclusion of Holquin so the line
terns abruptly to the northeast of
Fi.lmo, and runs to the town of Boca
di 1 Sagua, on the coast. The extreme
w dth is about 50 miles.
The navy department had not heard
iv) to the close of office hours to what*
e.'.tent tho American fleet was participating in the Spanish surrender. With
Santiago in the hands of the Americans the way will be (dear for Admiral
Sampson's fleet to enter the harbor
aud proceed up to the wharves as soon
as the torpedoes and mines at the harbor entrance are removed. The guns
of Morro Castle are included in the
surrendered zone." The possession of
these fortresses, particularly Morro
Castle, will afford a valuable garrison point for a large number of men.
The terms under whieh these soldiers
are surrendered is not known in detail,
hut it is regarded as likely that their
big guns pass with the surrender.
While the fleet will sem be free to
move up to Santiago, some doubt is
entertained in naval circles, whether
any good could be accomplished by
such a move, r i it might subjeci
some of the sailors Id tho contagion
existing within tho city. More attention will now be given to the care
of tho sick, and fever stricken soldiers
on tho island, in the opinion of the
army surgeons, tho sick can bo beta
treated by removal to the high ground
back of the southern coast, where
the heat is less severe and where there
would be uo fear of communicating
disease to the rest of the army. Thc
aotive preparations made lo deal with
the emergency aie such lhat it is fell
that, the question ot health can he coped
with'.successfully. now that the milihi .'.*-
situation has been simplified.
The plan of the war department for
returning the surrendered army of Tor '
to Spain will not necessitate tho uso t '
American vessels. It is the purpose of
the department to ask for proposals from
nil steamship companies which desire
to compete for transporting the Spanish troops to Spain, and the most advantageous bid will be accepted. The
advices of General Shafter state that
the number of ^Spanish prisoners will
be between 12,000 and 15,000.

Washington. July 14.���The war
department has received the following
despatch from General Miles, written
apparently before the final surrender
of Santiago at li o'clock :
Playa del Kste, July 14.
Secretary of War,
Washington, D. C.
Before Santiago, Jvly 14 ���General Toral, formally surrendered
the troops of his army, the trrops
and division of Santiago, on th
terms and understanding that his
troops shall be returned to Spain.
General Shafter will appoint commissioners to draw up tho conditions of arrangements for carrying
out the terins of surrender. This
is very gratifying and General
Shafter and tho officers and men
of his command are entitled to
great credit for their sincerity and
fortitiude in overcoming the almost insuperable obstacles which
they encountered, A portion of
the army has been infected with
yellow fever and efforts will be
made to separate those who are
infected from those free from it,
and to keep those who are still on
board ship separated from those on |
shore. Arrangements will be ini-J

not destroy tin; town and should leave
his arms behind. This latter condition the Spanish general, who does not

tho laws of Spain gave a general no

place when he found it untenable, but
he could not leave his arms behind
without subjecting himself to the pen- t

Without saying so in words, General Miles said that the tenor of General 'Toral's remarks, all betrayed his
realization that he could not hold
out long. When General Shafter explained that his reinforcements wero
coming up, that he was completely
surrounded and that new batteries
were being posted. General Toral iu
reply shrugged his shoulders,saying :
"I am but a subordinate, and I
obey my government, if it be necessary
we will be defeated at our posts."
During the course of the interview
General Toral said the bombardment
of Sunday and Monday had done littlo
damage. He admitted that, the shells
had destroyed four houses but he as-
si .led lhat only half a dozen soldiers
oi' the garrison had been injured. He
also     volunteered     the     information,
wheu General Miles gallantly enquired
after General Linares' condition,
that the latter would probably be
compelled to suffer amputation of his
left arm at tho shoulder.

When the Unitod States entered into
the present war with Spain, it wns
with the express declaration thnl it
was a war undertaken with the object
of assisting pi ir siaTering humanity,
that territorial aggrandisement was uot
looked for and thai the independence
of Cuba more es dally would bo respected. Cynical ^persons ai the time
express-d doubts of the coutiuuauco
of each lofty and disinterested resolves,
and facts are beginning l i prove that
they were right.
It is an open secret thai Spain is anxious for peace, and would open negotiations did there nppenr to bo any
chance of her getting anything like
reasonable ten IS. But what are the
terms on which tho United Stales
would make peace? They nave nm,
of. course,  been   annul need   officially,
but it is tolerably apparent that they
would amount to nothing less than
tho entire colonial empire of Spain
and a substantial indemnity. When
it is considered that, from the Spanish
point of view, the Americans unwarrantably intci 'end between Spain end
her rebellious subjects, it is not surprising    thai    the    Spanish   refuse   to
entertain such terms until it is a
question of pence or her I ital annihilation as a nation.
Spain it appears, is willing I i declare
the independance of Cuba���the object
for which the war began���and In pay
an indemnity, the amount of which
would have to be determined by negotiations. Spain is also willing to give
such security as she is able for the
payment of tho indemnity. The exact
nature of this security seems uncertain,
but would proliably be fhe Philippine
Islands. As Spain has lost Cuba, lost
her fleet, will never be able to regain
control of the Philippines, and will
also have to pay an indemnity, while
her own expenses in Ihe war have
practically ruined her already.it would
seem that she has 'suffered- enough.
The United States have gained the
object for which Ihey went to war,
and are ottered fairly substantial rewards Jfor what was supposed to be a
philanthropic campaign, and now.
unless ihey wish to stultify all they
said at the col niencenienf of hostilities it is sr el.v time ��� show Ihey cm

Representative of   thc  Spokesman-Review  Securing Information.
Percy  F. Godenrath,  who formerly
resided in this city and is now the
representative of the mining department of the Spokesman-Review,
arrived in tlm city yesterday afternoon
on the N. & F. S. road. Mr. Godenrath is on a visit, to the mining camps
of West Kootenay in the interests of
his paper and has visited the Ymir
cnnip nnd the Fern mine.
Speaking of the Ymir camp he said:
"I wiis particularly struck with tho
ureal improvement iu the town itself
since my last visit a year ago, und
the great amount of development work
being done on the properties in the
* vicinity.
"At the Fern mine eveiything is
running  smothly   and   tho vats to bo
j used in connection with tiie treatment
of   the  slimes   by   the  Plefan-Clerici

This will mean a considerable saving
of ihe product. The company, so I
was informed, intend putting in two
Pelton water wheels for the purpose
| of furnishing power which will inin-
ini/.e the cost of operations. "
Mr. Godenrath will spend the next
four or live days iu this district, and
will ,'isir lhe principal properties.
He is anxious to secure as much information as possible about the mines
in this vicinity for a special edition
of the Review, which will be circulated at the Trans-Mississippi and

today for a visit* to the Last Chance
mine on Toad mountain, near Cottonwood lake, about nine miles from Nelson, winch i.s being operated under
the supervision of Ihe Wilson Bros.
This is the second visit of Mr. Wilson, Sr., to Nelson, he having spent
several weeks here last year. To a
Miner reporter yesterday evening he
expressed his pleasure at the progress
the eity i.s making, and notices a
marked improvement* since his former
visit. In speaking of inining mutters
he expressed the opinion that Birtish
Columbia should he one of the greatest
mineral producing countries in the
world, but in order to get British
capital properly interested in it a great*
deal more work must he done. The
time has gone by when an undeveloped
piospect can be sold for the price of
a mine, and to secure a purchaser, the
seller must have something definite
in sight. Should the operations of
the British America Corporation prove
successful it will have a very beneficial effect in directing the attention of
British capital to the Kootenay country.
The part}- will make a thorough
examination of tho Last Chance property and expect to return to the city
on Saturday evening.
