Witnessed in Porto Hieo.
CHICAGO, July 30. A special cable to the Inter
Ocean from Ponce, Porto Rico, says:
The most remarkable scenes were enacted at the capture
of that town by General Miles. Before the entrance of the
American troops the Spanish soldiers became wild with fear
and ransacked the town for pillows, rags or any old thing
that they could stuff under the backs of their uniforms to
act as protection from Yankee bullets. The flight of the
Spanish forces from the town looked like a burlesque act of
lot of circus clowns.
The American troops are being treated like conquering
heroes, who came with the gospel of justice and 'equality.
The transition of the city from a staid old Spanish town
into a lively American center of business activity, is one of
the wonders of the Spanish-American war..

Appointed to the expeditionory foices
will soon be ordered to the Philippines
for active service. - Generals Merriam
and Miller are very reticent in regard to
the contents ot the dispatches, bat have
admitted to members of personal staffs
that thousands more troops than those
already here will probably be ordered to
the far east. An officer who saw dis
patches said it could not be doubted
General Merritt had -found the situation'
in Manila very grave, and would apprise
Washington of the necessity of a large
body of troops thore.
Preparations for dispatching the big
steamships Arizona and Scandia are
being pushed to the limit. Both vessels
are scheduled to sail August 10, but the
Arizona may have to go alone as the
Scandia cannot possibly be gotten ready
inside of two weeka. -

War Appears Practically Ended.
New York, July 30. Peace will in all
probability have been attained between
the .United States and Spain within a
week. It was learned by the Journal's
Washington correspondent from the
very best authority after meeting of the
Cabinet Counsel today that Cambon,
French minister to Washington, had
been made envoy extraordinary to ar
ange peace details for Spain with the
United States. Terms will probably De

States, independence of Cuba under
American jurisdiction qntll Cubans have
manifeeted their ability to form a stable
government, evacuation by Spain of all
other islands in the West Indies and
commission to settle disposition of con
quered Spanish islands in the Orient.
This will not mean evacuation of the
Philipinea, Ladrones and Carolines by
American troops, at least not until after
the question of coaling stations in those
places for the United States is settled by
the Commission. Cambon is instructed
to accept almost any terms that are

Cavitb, Philippine Islands, Ja'y 26.
General ' Wesley Merritt, governor-gen

here and in command of all the Ameri

defenses of Manila. General Merritt
arrived on the transport Newport yes

and Valencia are expected in a few
days. The vessels all left Honolulu to
gether; but an accident occurred to the
Ohio, and all-the transports, except the
Newport, turned back.
General Merritt has sent an import
ant cable to Washington and to Gener
als Merriam and Miller at San Francisco,
but the contents have not been made
General Merritt believes that the
monitor Monterey is now-at Guam isl
and, one of - the Ladronne group, and
expects her along in a few days.
The General has had an extended

letter said they would rather wait for
the arrival of the Monterey before mak

IRON AND STEEL
Contractors Unable Promptly to Fill

Chicago, July 30. Iron and Steel to
day says : '
Whatever may be the trade in Amer
ican iron and steel and that question
is now a most vital one -there can be
no uncertainty about the domestic con
sumption. Within the past week con
ditions among some of the. sellers, who
weeks or months ago booked many or
ders for future delivery, have been
growing more serious. ' The buyers
wanted the material tbey had bargained
for; they, in many instances, wanted it
in even larger quantities than they had
arranged to receive it; and when in re
ply to their specifications they were
favored with explanations, excuses and
promises, their business became more
or less deranged.
It is remarkable that quite a number
of the large consumers of iron and steel
are now running their works day and
night. Their surplus product has been
