Advices from Sampson and Shafter
have prompted Secretaries Alger and
Long to wait until reinforcements are re
ceived. Shafter, in a dispatch which arrived
last night, confirmed the report that
General Pando and about six thousand
Spaniards had arrived in the city and
that these troops were already distribu

rains of the paet two weeks have con
tributed nearly as much as Spanish bul

Madrid, July 5. The general public
of the Spanish capital still believe Cer-
vera and his squadron have eecaped
from Santiago, thanks to the official dis
patches given out. by the government
and interviews granted by the ministers
A dispatch from Captain-General Blanco
"Cervera's fleet at 11 o'clock Sunday
morning broke the center of the line of
the American fleet and proceeded at full
steam in a westerly direction.'
The Spanish minister of marine, Se
nor Aunon, is quoted in an interview as
"I am highly pleased with the feat of
arms performed by Cervara's squadron,
which left Santiago the moment Cervera
judged it opportune to do so."
After eulogizing the Spanish admiral,
the minister of marine adJud :
"The squadron could only leave the
harbor at a given point, and when the
moment arrived Cervera seized it. I
have never doubted that he would do so.
But of course it is difficult to foresee the
result. The American squadron was
taken by surprise. After attacking us,
the American admiral detached five of
his best ships', which steamed for some
time abreast of ours, but they were soon
left astern. Only the Iowa and Brook
lyn were able to follow our fleet, but it
is certain they will not do so far, for
fear of reprisals on our part. Cervera
deserves great praise."

Santiago, July 3. Late last night1 the

American lines. Tn several places our
