OFFERS OF PEACE
General Toral Has Surrendered and Will
Be Sent With His Army, to Spain.
WASHINGTON, July 14. At 3 o'clock this
afternoon General Toral, commander of the Spanish
forces at Santiago, surrendered that city and the en
tire portion of Cuba east of Sagua on the north and
Acerradoris on the south. The only concession made
by the Americans was that the Spanish troops would
be sent to Spain. An American commission will be
appointed to arrange for the transportation of Toral
and his army of sixteen thousand men.
In all probability British vessels will be char-'
tered and gotten away within a week.
There will be no delay of investment of Porto
Rico. It is expected that the fleet and army will
capture the capital of San Juan before July 24th.
The war department will probably establish a
quarantine camp, where all soldiers exposed to yel
fever may be concentrated.
None but regulars and artillery will go to Porto
Rico. Companies of immunes will go as garrisons,
and the victorious Santiago army will go as soon as
Doubt as to Whether or Not They Will
Be Accepted, as Spain Asks for

Washington, July 14. Peace terms
to which Spain ia willing to accede have
been communicated to President Mc
Kinley. It is asserted that they may
be accepted. The Spanish offer to grant
Cuba independence, transfer Porto Rico
to the United States and give this coun

but want to retain the Philippine Isl

Llow fever occurred among the American
troops today. The sick are rigidly iso
lated and very few new cases are re.
ported. A demand haa been made for
more physicians and nurses and the
assurances have been received that eucb
will be hurried to the front at once.
One Hundred and Eighteen Lives Lost

Little Doubt Expressed that the Hero
of Manila Can Take Care of Him
self if the Kaiser's Fleet Figures
in the Action.
Washington, July 14. The action of
the German warship in preventing the
investment of the Isla Grande in Subie
bay, near Manila, yesterday is still a
subject of grave interest at the war- de
partment. It is true that the Irene re
tired when two vessels of Dewey's fleet
appeared in the harbor, bat were it not
for the perfect confidence that the
Washington authorities repose in the
hero of Manila, the incident might lead
to a demand on Germany for an ex
planation. President Mc Kinley and Secretary
Long and Alger perfectly agree that
Dewey's management ot the affairs in
Manila has been most admirable, and
they are not disposed hardly to even
offer suggestions as to how the admiral
should act in case of any overt acta on
thejpart of the Kaiser's fleet.
The splendid work ot Dewey in dis
posing of Admiral Montejo leaves no
fear in the mind of the president as to
what will be the outcome in case any
loreign vessels si manna invite a simi

Of Interest to Stock Kaisers.
The following quotations from the
South Omaha etock yards will be of in
terest to Btock-raiaers :
Receipts of western cattle still con
tinue to be very moderate, and consist
entirely of etockers and feeders. The
downward tendency noted last week has
been checked and prices have improved
this week abont 10 cents, with a more
active demand, caused no doubt by the
general belief that the corn crop of Ne
braska is almost assured. Based upon
actual sales we quote prices as follows :
Yearling steers $4.40 to $4.75 ; two and
three-year-old steers $4 to $4:40; four,
year-old steers $3.65 to $4; yearling
heifers $3.75 to $4.25 ; two and three-year-old
heifers $3.25 to $3.65; cows
$2.50 to $3.25.
Quite a number of feeding cattle and
stockers from the western states, in
cluding California and Texae above
quarantine, have been unloaded in al
of the largo feeding counties of Nebras
ka, with the expectation of selling io
feeders. Sales at all the points where
they have been unloaded are slow, be
cause, feeders are reluctant to invest,
until they are certain that they will
raise corn to fatten the cattle. On ac
count of these conditions, owners who
are ehipping direct to this market are
meeting with more satisfactory results
The Required Sum Will be Distributed
Among Over 250,000 Citizens.
Washington, July 14. The success of
the popular war bond issue, tor which
the subscription booka were closed to
day, has been . most remarkable. Over
$90,000,000 has been taken in $500
amounts and under. The total applica
tions will amount to over $1,325,000,000.
No application for over $5,000 will be
considered as the entire $200,000,000 is
covered by applications under' that sum.
The issue will be distributed among oyer

out in the etate.
Receipts cf sheep are still quite mod

sheep to western grass sheep. The gen
