Troops of tie Second Expedition Have Been Landed-The Officers are
Busy Making Preparations for the Fight.
NEW YORK, July 22. A special to the World from Manila under date of July 18,
via Hong Kong July 21, says:
Everything is ready now for the word to advance on Manila. The belief is general
throughout the fleet and among the American soldiers on shore, that a demand for the sur
render of the city will be made before Sunday, the 2d.
The army detachment has just arrived from San Francisco and there are now six
thousand United States troops here. These troops together with the fleet form a force
strong enough to take the place easilj'. ' - -
Troops of the second expedition have been landed at Paranaque, about two miles
from Manila, and have camped near the First California volunteers, who advanced to that
point last Friday.
Admiral Dewey and the officers of the army held a long consultation on the flag
ship yesterda' afternoon, afte rather Second expedition arrived.
The American officers have been entirely around Manila familiarizing themselves
with the topography of the region and gathering invaluable information for the command
ers. General Anderson has personally inspected much of the country. Elaborate maps
have been prepared showing the location of all the Spanish forts and guns. '
It is known that the Spanish have mined the roads likely to be traversed by our
troops in fighting, but the locations of these mines are known.
Claims He Has Been Mistreated by the
Americans, and Will Withdraw
His Forces to the Hills.
New York, July 21. A Santiago
special to the Journal, dated July 20,
flays General Garcia has written a letter
to General Shatter, declaring be is dis
gusted with his treatment at the hands
of the Americans, and will, therefore,
' withdraw his forces to the bills. Among
the things of which General Garcia com
plains is the failure of the American
commander to officially notify him of
the surrender of the Spanish force under
General Toral. He is also incensed at
the alleged fact that he was not invited
to be present at the ceremony attending
the formal capitulation of Santiago.
Another grievance is the retention of the
Spanish civil authorities in the admin
istration of their functions in Santiago.
For these reasons Garcia declares he
will no longer co-operate with the forces
under General Shatter, but will act in
dependently as he did before the Amer
ican troops landed in Cuba.

Cabinet in Spain.
London, July 21. According to a spe
cial from Madrid, Senor Sagasta has
again offered to resign, and has been
counseled by the queen regent to advise
with the other political leaders relative
to his future course. It is also reported
that General Polaviejas' return to Mad
rid ia closely connected with the coming
change in the ministry, and that Gen
eral Weyler will form a cabinet, in
which General Polaviejas will be minis
ter for war. This combination, it is fur
ther asserted, will support the dynasty,
repeal the suspension of constitutional

Trouble With Shatter Causes His Ac
tion Claims He Was Ignored in
the Peace Negotiations and Sur
Santiago de Cuba, July 21.; Serious
break has occurred in the relations be
tween Shafter and Garcia. The Cuban
general has withdrawn his army to the
interior, and also sent to Gomez his res
ignation of command. The result of
the grievances of Garcia are set forth in
a letter to Shafter. "Garcia says he was
ignored in the peace negotiations and
surrender ceremonies, and that certain
Spaniards are still in authority in San
tiago. The main complaints is that the
Cuban army is kept out of the city for
fear of massacre and revenge. Garcia
says the Cubans are not blood-thirsty.
Left for Vancouver.
Tacoma, July 21. The First battalion,
Second regiment, Washington state
volunteers, 425, strong, left for Vancoo
ver, Wash., this morning on a special
train. They expect, after a few weeks,
to be ordered to San Francisco. .
flflS BEEfl DEFEND
Unless Some Contingency Makes it Nec
essary He Will Not Cross the' Atlan- '
tic It is not 'the Present Inten
tion to Carry War Into Spain.
Washington, July 22. The project
to send Commodore Watson across the
Atlantic has been suspended and he will
not leave American waters at all unless
some contingency of the war makes
neceesary sterner .measures to 'seek
peace than have thus far received the
president's approval. '
Secretary Long said this afternoon
that the departure of the fleet had been
deferred until after the Porto Rico cam
paign at least; but further than that be
declined to indulge in predictions. It is
stated advisedly and upon highest au
thority that the president never con
templated an attack on Spain except as
an extreme resort to terminate the war.
It has never been his intention to bom-
ba rd cities, however strong or helpless,
or to capture and destroy fishing ves
sels and defenseless coastwise com
merce until other measures had failed.
The occupation of the Philippines and
of Porto Rico, with the overthrow of the
Spanish sovereignty in those colonies
and ejection of Spanish troops from the
whole island of Cuba without great Iobs
of life from disease, are to be achieved it
possible before hostilities are to be car
ried into Europe.
After Porto Rico comes altogether
under the American flag, if Spain does
not awaken to a realization of the futil
ity of further resistance, and war ia
necessary, the "Raiding Squadron" pro
ject may be revived.
