HAVE NO PLAN YET
Details of Second Call
Have Not Been
GOVERNOR'S VIEWS SOLICITED
neomplete Regiments May First Be
Filled tip Regiments of Negroes
Will Probably Be Offloered by Men
or Their Own Color.
Washington, May 80. An important
phase of the military programme is the
decision not to take up the details of
organizing the new force of 75,000 vol
unteers for at least a week or 10 days.
At a cabinet meeting today Inquiry was
made of Seoretary Alcer as to what
steps he proposed taking in the organ
ization of this large additional force of
volunteers. His reply was that he
bad not even considered the details of
this question, and that his plan was not
to take up the matter for a week ar 10
In the meantime no conclusion has
been reached as to whether a portion
of the 75,000 volunteers will be nsed
to recruit the regiments remaining un
filled under the first call for 125,000
volunteers, which would taEe about
40,000 men from the second call.
This would leave 85,000 men to be or
ganized in distinctly new regiments.
It would have the advantage of filling
every regiment in the service, instead
of leaving some of them with a deplet
ed organization. On the other hand,
itwould destroy the integrity of this
force of 75,000 volunteers as a second
The war department is anxlons to ob
tain the views of the governors of
states and territories in regard to filling
to their maximum the regiments al
ready furnished by them under the
first call, and with this object in view,
Adjutant-General Corbin today sent
telegrams asking tlie several governors
to make recommendations to the de
partment on this subject.
A number of minor points coming
up constantly in relation to the second
call for volunteers are being passed
upon in a general way at this time.
For instance, the question arose today
as to whether colored officers, as well
as colored troops, would be taken as a
part of the organizations offered. Gen
eral Alger at once decided that if a
colored oompany had efficient, soldierly
colored offioers, they were as much en
titled to receive recognition and accept
ance in the military service as were
the troops themselves. Be made this
decision known to the governor of In
diana, who asked for information, and
he stated the same thing to Represent
ative Hull, of Iowa, who has an organ
ization of colored men with colored
officers in his district. In this connec
tion it developed that colored men are
being considered for some of the staff
appointments, and the surgeon-general
of the army has accepted a colored man
as Burgeon, with the rank of captain.
The colored surgeon will be assigned to
a colored regiment, and colored troops
and oolored officers will be kept to
gether as far as possible.
It is not yet known what states will
be called upon for infantry, cavalry or
artillery. It is quite likely, however,
that any request a state may make in
this matter will be complied with if
Adjutant-General Corbin tonight an
nounced that three of the brigadier-generals
appointed by the president today
would be officially assigned, as soon as
the senate had confirmed their nomina
tions, to command troops in the Philip
pines. The generals selected for the
Philippine expeditions are George A.
Oarretson, of Cleveland; Francis V.
Greene, of New York, and Charles
King, of Wisconsin.
Late this evening General Merritt
wired General Corbin requesting that
General King bo sent with him to the
Philippines. The request was approved
and forwarded to General King, and
so becomes, to all intents and purposes,
General King is a novelist and an
ex-offloer of the United States army.
Generals Garretson and Greene have
already signified to the war depart
ment their acceptance of the orders to
proceed to Manila. Both are experi
enced officers of marked ability. It in
understood, unofficially, that Harrison
Gray Otis will also go to the Philip
pines. Fatal Tennessee Collision.
Chattanooga,May30. A special from
Oakesdale, Tenn., says: An engine
collided with the Oakesdale accommo
dation train at Gainsville, north of
-Chattanooga, on the Cincinnati South
ern. The orew on the engine, com
posed of Conductor Simpson, Engineer
'Hudson, Fireman Edwards and Brake-
man Mathews and Swanson, were all
instantly killed, except Simpson, who
is not expected to live. All resided In

great speed, with all well on board.

Seattle, May 80. The steamship In
diana, which will probably be char
tered by the government to carry
troops to Manila, arrived here last
eight, 59 days from Philadelphia.
IN A THICK FOG.
The Cruiser Columbia Sinks a British
New York, May 81. The United
States cruiser Columbia reports that at
7:30 last night, off Fire'ishnd during
a thick fog, she was ran into by the
British steamer Foscolia, hence for
Bordeaux, grain laden, .-. The Foscolia
struck the Columbia on the starboard
side, just forward of the after barbette,
cutting olean into the hull and filling
the oompaitment. The Foscolia.jsank.
The Columbia succeeded in "rescuing
all of her brew and landed them at St.
George, f' ' '.,
Wrnen the .Columbia, in command of
Captain Sands,, anchored off Tompkins
ville this afternoon, it was sqenthat
she had a large jagged hole'ttove inher
starboard side; abreast the ," mast.
Above the waterlino, the hole extended
about 10 feet high and . six feet wide.
Commander of the Spanish Fleet
Just how far below the water line the
cruiser is damaged could not be ascer
tained. As soon as thd vessel came to
anchor, the captain and crew of the
Foscolia went ashore. The captain and
crew left at once for New York, to re
port to the agents of the company to
which the vessel belonged. No one
was allowed to go on board the Colum
bai, but to a representative of the
press, the officer of the deck made the
"About 7:80 P. M. yesterday, the
British steamship Foscolia, in oom
mand of Captain John Evans,' collided
with our vessel during a dense iog. We
were then about eight miles southwest
of Fire island. We loweied two life
boats and rescued the captain and crew
numbering 21 all told. We stood by
nntil the Foscolia Bank at 8 o'clock
this morning. As soon as we arrived
here, we sent the rescued men ashore.
Further information in reference to
the accident I cannot give."
About 4 o'clock one of the navy-yard
tugs steamed alongside the cruiser and
delivered some messages from Rear-
Admiral Hunce; commandant of the
navy-yard at Brooklyn. A few minutes
later, the Columbia headed for the
Brooklyn navy-yard, where it is sup
posed she will be drydocked in order to
ascertain the full extent of her injuries.
AFFAIRS IN SANTIAGO.
Food Becoming Scarce and Despond
Port An Prinoe, May 81. Two Ital
ians, who Bet out from Santiago de Cu
ba in a small boat May 19 and landed
near Mole St. Nicholas on the 22d, ar
rived here today, bringing information
as to the situation at Santiago. The
Btate of affairs there is critical, partic
ularly so because of the lack of food.
A great many of the unfortunate peo
ple, especially the reconcentradoes, are
dying of starvation. The whole popu
lation is terribly discouraged and are
keenly desirous of peace.
The arrival of the .squadron under
Cervera witlwut food supplies for the
city deepened the general despondency.
The squadron has disembarked 800 ar
tillerymen and engineers, and landed
20,000 Mauser rifles, a great, quantity
of ammunition and four big guns des
tined for the fortifications.
In spite of the striot silence main
tained by officers and crews, the gen
eral impression, when the Italians left,
was that the squadron would Bet out
for San Juan de Porto Rico to obtain
supplies and land ammunition there.
To Save Ills Mother.
. Tacoma, May 81. A 6 o'clock this
evening Frank Derville, aged 60. came
home lntoxioated, quarreled with his
wifedrew a big knife and rushed upon
her. His 13-year-old son, Jack, picked
np a gun and shot his father as the
latter was attacking his mother the
old man falling dead almost instantly.
The family resides in the town of Steil
aooom, 12 miles from this city, where
the shooting took place. The boy was
not arrested. The people of the town
consider the killing as justifiable. The
Derville family is well known, in the
West, being prominent on the ' variety
Talking of Peace. '
Madrid, May 81. The papers con
tinue to talk of the possibilities of
peace. El Globo publishes an article,
supposed to be inspired by Senor Mo
ret, the late minister of the colonies,
advocating peace, which has attracted
great attention, but the discussion
shows as yet nothing tangible.
Washington, May81. Adjutant
General Corbin said today that it had
been definitely deoided to use about
50,000 of the volunteers to be raised
under the new call in filling out deficit
regiments already organized under the
old call. It would take about that
number, he thoaught, to fill each regi
ment to the maximum limit of 1,060
men. The remaining 25,000 will be
organixed into regiments of three bat
talions each and distributed among the
states and territories in exactly the
same proportions as under the first call.

There is much speculation here in
regard to the visit of the soldeirs.
Many believe that the mon will not be

Mutt Co Together.
Washington, May 80. The Hawai
ian annexation question assumed defi
nite shape in the senate today, when
Lodge and Morgan offered amendments
to tlie war-revenue bill bearing direotly
upon the Bubject. Lodge's amendment
is in the words of Newland's resolu
tion, and provides in direct terms for
the annexation of the islands. Lodge
was seen immediately after he had sent
tn his amendment, and announced' it
to be his purpose to press the amend
ment to the end.
"Henceforth," he said, "the two
measures shall travel together. Both
are equally important, and under the
circumstances it would be foolhardy for
us to forego our advantages in Hawaii."'
EXCHANGE WAS MADE.
American Prisoners Transferred
Havana, May 80. From a Spanish
oorrespondent.)-T;At. .10 o'clock this
morning the marines were notified
from Morro that an American ship had
been sighted off the harbor flying a flag
of truce. A colonel of the general
staff, with the vice-consul, went on the
Spanish gunboat Marquise Molina, and
moceedod to Morro castle, off which
lay the tug Marqnis de Balboa, having
on board the American newspaper cor
respondents, Hayden Jones and Charles
ThralL for whom an exchange of pris
oners was to be made. Jones and
Thrall were tendered at 10 o'clock to
the Marquise Molina, which immedi
ately hoisted a white flag and went to
meet the American vessel, which
proved to be the Maple. Two boats
were lowered for the American vessel,
and to them were transferred the pris
oners to be exchnngod for the Ameri
can correspondents. They were Colo
nel Vicente de Oorijo, the former com
mander at Cabanas fortress, and said
to be a brother-in-law of General Wey
ler, and Surgeon-General Cinoon Gar
vin Julian and two private soldiers,
who were captured aboard the steamer
Argonauta. The exchange was soon
effected, and the Spanish were taken
aboard the gunboat.
Balloons for the Array.
New York, May 80. The Tribune
prints the following: There were ship
ped to Governor's island yesterday
from the pier of the French line two
big balloons and equipment, which the
government has ' purohaaed for use in
army operations. They were obtained
from the French manufacturer of bal
loons and proprietor of the captive bal
loon in Paris, Maurice Malet. M.
Malot is in this country with Anthony
Varicle, both of them well-known
aeronauts, and it is likely that their
services will be secured in connection
with tbe use of balloons in military
operations in Cuba and Porto Rico, and
possibly in the Philippines. The plan
has been proposed of sending one of
the balloons now at Tampa on a trial
to Commodore Schley's Bquadron, and
to use it in seeing just now if the
alleged Spanish fleet is hidden away
in Santiago harbor. The balloons will
be shipped to such points as the signal
serivce may determine.
5o Accident on the Baltimore.
London, May 80. Stories circulated
at Madrid and elsewhere regarding the
Baltimore are evidently groundless. A
dispatch received at the Spanish capi
tal from Mauila apparently referred
to the alleged disablement of the Balti
more during the battle of Manila, when
a Spanish shell struck her and explod
ed some ammunition, slightly injuring
six men on her decks.
False Report of a Disaster.
New York, May 80. The World's
London correspondent says: A dis

CANNOT GET AWAT
Cervera at the Mercy
of the American
MlS lCAREER IS AT AN END
Spaniard;!. Fatal Blunder Schley Off
Santiago .and Sampson Where He
' Can Go to His Assistance or Reach
Washington, May 28 Secretary
Long said at the oloseof office hours to
day that Cervera was still in Santiago
harbor. Schley is lying outside
watching the entrance, to prevent the
egress of the Spanish vesse Is, but while
there is evidence of a certain kind of
that fact,1 there has been no official con
firmation of it. This is a little remark
able, in view of the fact that it is only
a day's run for one of Sohley's swift
torpedo-boats from Santiago to a cable
port in Hayti.
There is also a ourious lack of infor
mation from the newspaper boats on
this point. It was supposed the censors
might have eliminated from the dis
patches of the newspaper men any ref
erence to the fleots, but this would
apply, according to the statement of
tbe naval department officials here,
only to that part of the dispatches that
might relate to the number and where
abouts of tbe United States forces, and
the censor's rules would not exclude
reference to the Spanish squadrons.
Notwithstanding the officials profess
unshaken confidence in their belief that
the Spanish squadron is securely bottled
up in Santiago harbor, thore is no con
cealment by them of an Intense debire
to secure some absolutely trustworthy
information on that point. It is not
to bo doubted that, with the question
still open, the beginning of the main
operations are retarded. So long as
there exists a possibility of the Spanish
naval force being at large, there is an
Indisposition to start the troop trans
ports for Cuba.
Probably it was this uncertainty of
affairs that induced the presidont to
cull a consultation at the White House
today between Secretaries Long and
Alger, General Miles and the members
of the naval war board. Admiral Sio
ard. Captain. Crowinshield and Cap
tain Mahan... As stated by one of the
members of the conference, the pur
pose was to go over the whole situation
from the Philippines to Cuba and Porto
Rico, and decide just how far the
plans already . laid down should be
modified to meet existing,, conditions.
This involved a decision on such im
portant points as the propriety of an
immediate move of the military fowe
op Cuba; the reliability of the advices
so far had touohing the location of the
Spanish squadron; the policy of pieced
ing the Cuban expedition or accom
panying it with one directed against
Porto Rico, and, finally, the extent of
tbe military assistance to be sent to
Admiral Dewey at Manila.
As already indicated, the proceedings
were rather in the nature of a consult
ation than of a war council, bo it is not
probable that all of the important ques
tions were disposed of at the conference.
No member of the conference felt
authorized to tell what had taken
place, but there are felt to be patent in
dlcations of a decision to embark the
military expeditions in the course of
the next few days; whether for Cnbo
or Porto Rioo can only be conjectured
Naval officers feel that Cervera has
committed a fatal blunder in being
trapped at Santiago do Cuba', "and thnt
there is no fear the trap will prove in
adequate to hold the Spaniards.
WILL TAKE PORTO RICO. .
Sampson Has Been Ordered to Move on
Chicago, May 28. A speoial to the
NewB from Washington says: Porto
Rico is to be taken. The president has
decided that Sampson shall move im
mediately on that island, while Schley
guards Cervera. ( At least 20,000
troops will beiBent, and another army
ia at the same time to enter Cuba, the
plans now being ready.
.From a cabinet officer it is learned
that the haste In ordering troops and
ships to Porto Rioo is owing to the fact
that the president has leaned that the
powers are preparing to ask that Spain
be peiuiilUd to withdraw from Cuba
and allow peace to be declared. This
intimation came direct from Europe.
The president wants to be able to say,
"Yes, Spain may withdraw. That's
why we made war; but we will hold
Porto Rico and the Philippines."
Without a dissenting voice, the cabinet
decided that the greatest possible haste
should be made in the invasion.
SHIPS FOR ASIA.
More Transports Are Needed
San Francisco, May 28. The trans.
porting of 50,000 troops to the Philip
pines has set government agents to
work scouring the Pacific ocean for
transport vessels. So far, only 2,600
troops have been sent to Admiral
Dewey's assistance. There are 7,000
more in camp here, and 40,000 more
to come. About 15 more transports
are required, together with half
dozen colliers. The second expedition
will not leave San Francisco for fully
three weeks, unlsss the transports are
sent out by twos and threes. In tbe
latter event, the Zeulandia and China
(if the big liner is finally chartered)
might be made ready to sail in about
10 days, or within two weeks at the
FROM GARCIA'S CAMP.
Two Cuban Officers on a Visit to Wash
Washinton, May 28. Secretary Al
ger and Genoral Miles today conferred
with two'officers from the staff of Gen
eral Garcia, General Coioazo and Lien-
tenant Charles Hernandez, who came
direct from Garcia's headquarters, bear
ing credentials from him to perfect a
plan of co-operation with the American
forces. They accompanied Lieutenant
Rowan, of the United States army, on
his return from Garcia's camp at Bay
amo, in Central Cuba, and shared with
him the danger of a two days' journey
in an open boat from the coast of Cuba.
They reported first to the Cuban dele
gation here, and Secretary Quesada waa
careful to keep their presence secret
until General Miles had made the fact
Lieutenant Hernandez says his head
quarters at Bayamo, with a body-guard
of Beveral hundred men, are quartered
in the city. Ibe infantry and cavalry
are quartered in the suburb of South
Bayamo. In all, abont 8,000 men are
thus quartered. They are well armed
with Remington and Mausers, captured
from the Spaniards. Most of them
have maohets, but only tbe offioers
carry other small arms. The cavalry
have email horses, much like the Indian
mustangs, hardy and reliable.
Hernandez says communication is
maintained with General Gomez and
with points along tho coast. From
this be has a general idea of the foroes
outside of those with General Garcia
at Bayamo. He estimated that there'
are 12,000 taen, all of whom are well
aimed, east of la trooha, and constitut
ing the forces lathe eastern division of
the island under Garcia. . These in
clude the 3,000 at Bayamo, the others
being scattered at various points. He
estimated General Gomez' immediate
command at about 8,000 men, with
6,000 men scattered at various points.
In all there are, according to Coioazo
and Hernandez, about 20,000 to 25,000
It is understood the visit of Garcia's
officers is to give general assurance to
the authorities here of Garcia's desiie
to give every possible cq-operation to
the American movements. Similar
assurances have come from General
Gomez, and have been presented by
Quesada. The Cuban officers have
made a good impression here, and the
authorities were agreeably surprised to
find them men of ability and sound,
soldierly bearing, speaking English
The Second Draft,
Washington, May 28. The officials
of the war department are not yet pre
pared definitely to announce their pro
gramme with respect to obtaining the
75,000 volunteers called for yesterday
by presidential proclamation. Thers
will be some consultation on tbe sub
ject between the president and the war
officers before a conclusion is reached.
It Is said, however, to have been de
termined to fill to their maximum
strength the 100 and" more regiments of
volunteers already called for, most of
which are organized at the minimum
number allowed by the law.

WEEKLY MARKET LETTER.
Trade Conditions in the Leading Cities
of the World.
Reported by Downing, Hopkins & Co., Inc.,
Board ol Trade Brokers, 711 to 714 Chamber of
Commerce building, Portland, Oregon.)
Indications are that the wheat crop.
of 1808 will be the greatest in the his
tory of the country. From figures that
are being collected and compiled by-
some of the big-Chicago firms, based on
the reports of experts in every section
of the country, the oncoming wheat
crop is estimated to exceed 650,000,000
bushels. All tho conditions are report
ed as being of the raosf favorable na
ture, and while there ' is a decrease in
acreage the total yield will be more
than double that of 1897. . In the fall
of 1896 there was an extraordinary in
crease in acreage, but , the conditions
were , such that' a large, share of the
crop was plowed up .the following
spring, and at harvest time much of
the remaining crop was not worth out
ting. Kansas looms up as the banner
state this year, an inoroase of 28 per
cent in the acreage having been report- .
ed. Estimates on the ... yield vary all
the way from 70,000,000, bushels to
100,000,000 bushels, .while' the com
bined crops of Kansas, Nebraska and
Oklahoma is estimated at 160,000,000
bushels. Of this 80,000,000 to 40,000,
000 bushels are credited to Oklahoma
and Kansas will have 80,000,000 to
00,000,000 bushels. .'
As compared with the planting in
Illinois In the fall of 1800, there has
been a decrease of 16 per cent it the

whereas it is generally conceded that
this year's crop will be nearly, if not
fully, treble, or between 25,000,000
