MILES WAITING NAVAL CONVOYS He Has Transports Ready to Start for Porto Rico Sampson Ordered to Get a Move on Himself. Washington, July 21. General Miles last night notified the secretary of war that he is waiting at Gnantanamo for necessary naval convoys. He says he has ten transports at his disposal, and they are probably loaded and ready to start for Porto Rico. Miles accuses Sampson of red tape and needless delay. The war department at once ordered Sampson to get a move on himself. The date of the departure of Watson's squadron to attack the Spanish coast becomes more uncertain. It is believed now that Watson must wait nntil the vessels for the Porto Rico expedition are selected and perhaps until naval operations off Porto Rico are completed.

Admiral Cervera has received from the Spanish govern ment a check for $50,000 to defray the expenses of himself and other officers who are prisoners at Annapolis. Madrid, July 20. Martinez Campos, former captain-general of Cuba, has issued an address to the people of Spain tonight, saying that the present cabinet must be kept in power until peace was gained. Speaking of Santiago, Campos said : "Surrender was inevitable, sooner or later. It is impossible to resist in such a climate with ill-ted soldiers. The Americans also suffered from the climate but had more resources, being near their country and could get everything they wanted. Haying powerful artillery they would have been irreeistable in the end, chiefly considering that we had lost our squadron. Santiago could do noth ing else but surrender. Havana will have to do the same thing, whether it resists one month or six weeks. I am pereuaded, however, that the purpose of the Americans is now to get hold of Por to Rico and to try to make good their claims on it. - 'The Americans have etrenath and consequently will have all. - It is im possible to. live on the glorious memo ries preserved in old historical parch ments. I believe the government acted too rashly in refusing to accept tho American nltinaatum. I would have waited to receive the ultimatum. Apart from that, I am persuaded that the Americans wanted nothing but war. They continued to help the insurrec tion after Spain had granted autonomy, but punishment has arrived for the Cubans and for the Yankees. "The Cubans will fight the Yankees in the end the same they fought Spain, cruelly and relentlessly. .. They will lose in the end but the cost tothe Americans will be terrible." tomi; Contentions ii Snail Wt The Spanish Cabinet Has Resolved to Fight to the Bitterest, Bloodiest End. MADRID, July 20.

The governor of Kwangsi has sent soldiers to the rebellious districts. Trouble is reported in Manchuria. Some think the authorities are doing all they can to drive the people into rebellion, or, as some 8 a j-, into the hands of Russia. Private letters speak in strong language about the doings of the tsai-li-ti, a powerful eect,something like the lao-hui. These people are gathering in bands and defying the petty local authorities. They are Btrongly anti-foreign. Reports are circulated that China in tends to open the island of Changbain uen, near Canton, as a treaty port, to prevent Germany or any other power from gaining it.
