H. Davis, of the auxiliary gunobat D ixie. There was no resist ance, and the Americans were wel comed with enthusiasm. Major-General Miles arrived here this morning at daylight, with General Ernst’ s brigade and General W ilson’s divisions on board transports. General Ernst’s brigade immediately started for the town of Ponce, three miles inland, which capitulated this afternoon. The American troops are pushing to ward the mountains, and w ill join Gen eral H enry,with his brigade, at Yanco, which has been captured by our troops. A tight before the latter place last Tuesday was won by the American companies o f the Sixth Massachusetts and Sixth Illinois, but the enemy was repulsed and driven back a mile to the ridge where the Spanish cavalry ■charged, and was routeJ by our in fantry. General Garretson led the tight with the men from Illinois and Massachusetts, aDd the enemy retreat ed to Yanco, leaving four dead and several wounded. None of onr men were killed, and only four were slightly wounded. The Porto Ricans are glad the Am er ican troops have landed, and say they are a ll Americans and w ill join our arm y. The roads are good for m ilitary purposes. Our troops are in good health, and General Miles says tire campaign w ill be short and vigorous. General Miles has issued the follow ing proclamation: “ In the prosecution of the war against the kingdom o f Spain by the people of the United States in the cause of lib erty, justice and humanity, its military forces have come to occupy the island ■of Porto Rico. They come bearing the banners o f freedom, inspired by a noble purpose, to seek the enemies of our gov ernm ent and of yours, and to destroy ot ■capture all its armed resistance. They bring you the fostering arms of a free preople, wlroee greatest power is justice and humanity to all livin g within their fold. Hence they release yon from your former political relations, and it is hoped this w ill be followed by your cheerful acceptance. “ The chief object of the Amerioan m ilitary foroes w ill Ire to overthrow the authority of Spain and give the people of your beautiful land the largest meas ure of liberty consistent with this m ili tary occupation. They have not come to make war on the people of the coun try, who for centuries have been op pressed, but, on the contrary, they ■come to protect not only yourselves, but your property, promote your pros perity and bestow tire immunities and blessings of our enlightened and liberal institutions and government. It is not the purpose to interfere with the exist ing laws and customs which are whole some and beneficial to the people, so long as they conform to the rules of th e m ilitary administration, order and justice. This is not a war of devasta tion and desolation, but one to give all w ithin the oontrol of the m ilitary and naval forces the advantages and bles sings o f enlightened c iviliza tio n .” A F FA IR S AT UNALASKA. •R ich S u l p h u r M i n e S a i d t o H a v e B e e n D iscovered. Seattle, Aug. 1. — Elmer M iller, who wintered at Unalaska, says that since the Russians first settled Alaska there were never so many white people on the Aleutian islands as there were last year, and eight different companies were at work building 34 Yukon river ■boats, and from about a score of white Unalaska increased its population to nearly 700. O f the 34 boats bnilt, many met with disaster when they were towed into Behring sea. the shores of which are strewn with wreckage o f a ll kinds o f river craft. Judges Broket and Reed, o f Minne apolis, have been on the island all w in ter examining a sulphur mine adjoin ing the volcano of Makushin, about 30 miles west o f Unalaska. It is said that this mine w ill prove more valuable than any gold mine in the Klondike, as snlphnr is at present greatly in de mand. Rumor has it that the mine w ill prove to be the richest in the world. K i l l e d by a Train. Clay Center, Kan., Aug. 1.— L evi C a tlio , o f Rockford, III., was killed by a Union Pacific passenger train.

Atkin- eon, of New York, who started to the Klondike by way o f the Ashcroft trail, has returned here, with the story that 500 prospectors are stranded at a point about 700 miles from Ashcroft. Be yond one or tw o parties, who took in large outfits, the men are livin g on the most stinted rations. Mr. Atkinson says that the attention of the Canadian government w ill be called to the desper ate situation in which the gold-seeker« are in. P A N IC A m erica n B usiness Key West, Aug. 2.— Reports havo reached here that Neuvitas, on the northern coast of the province of Puer to Principe, Cuba, has been bombarded by the ships o f the blockading squad ron, evacuated by the Spanish and sub sequently burned. N o details are known, and the only information of the affair was that given to Captain Maynard, of the gunboat Nashville, by Lieutenant-Colonel Rojas, o f the insur gent focres at Gibara, last Tuesday. Colonel Rojas him self has the news at second hand. The only American ships known to have been in the vicin ity of Neuvitas lately are the Prairie and Badger. The latter captured three Spanish ships coming out of the Neuvitas harbor, and took them to Dry Tortugas. A ll were flying Red Cross flags, but wheu board ed were found to contain a number of Spanish soldiers, only three of whom were sick. The Badger is expected here shortly. The Nashivlle reported at Gibara on Tuesday, when shecaptnred the schoon ers Gibara and Expresso. On entering the harbor, she was met by the ex- United States consular agent and pres ident of the railroad line to Holguin. He told tire Americans of the evacua tion of G itara two days before by Gen eral Leque and his 1,800 Spanish troops, who feared a concerted attack by A m er icans attd Cubans. They fled to H ol guin by rail, and afterward store up the tracks. General Lequez left in the Gibara hospital 535 sick and wounded Spanish soldierB with a request to A d miral Sampson to see that they were properly oared for. The next day the Cuban forces, con sisting of 500 cavalry, under Lieuten ant-Colonel Rojas, and 200 infantry, made a triumphant entry into the town. They were received with acclamations by the Cubans, and the town held fes tival that day and n igh t The insurg ents took formal possession, establish ing police system and sent out scouting parties, and when the N ashivlle ar rived, the best of order was being main tained. The invaders had, however, neglected the schooners in the harbor, and the American ships took possession o f them. When Ensign Snow left w ith a prize crew to bring the Gibara here, It had been determined to raise the A m er ioan flag over the town. SORROW A ll IN GERMANY.

As a result they have held a meeting here, and after consultation with the Filipinos in Franoe and B el gium, have cabled to President M cK in ley and to Senator Davis, chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. The message to President M cK in ley is as follows: “ The Filipinos resident in Europe pray you not to abandon the Philippine islands for the sake of peaoe with Spain. Our loyalty and trust in the honor of Am erica entitle ns to your consideration and support. To hand over our country again to Spain is con trary to the humanitarian proceedings of your noble nation, and the wish of all olasses. C ivilization, trade and all w ill be lost if Spanish authority is re established in any form .” The message to Senator Davis says: “ A ca.it iuli agreement, binding Spain to form a government satisfac tory to the inhabitants, is preposter ous. To retain her sovereignty means deception, oppression and bigotry. We place our rights in your hands, and pray you to induce the president and senate not to abandon in the hour of peace a people who, trusting in A m eri can honor, fought for their common interests.” T h e P re s id e n t’ !

Washington, July 8U.— Secretary A l ger is deeply con-'^rned over the welfare of the gallant troops under Shatter’s com ma ud, now encamped on the out- skills of Santiago. The health report shows a surprisingly large number of cases of sickness, but army surgeons authorize the statement that these figures are misleading in a certain sense, and that the situation may not be nearly so bad as they would seem to indicate. The slightest ailment o f tbe most temporary nature suffices to place a soldier’s name on the sick reporta, which, in their present shape, would not distinguish between such a ease and one of mortal illnees. The inference is that many o f these cases in Shatter’s camp are of a trivial nature, but go to swell its grand total of sick and wound ed. Notwithstanding this m itigating fact, Secretary Alger is going to remove the soldiers at the earliest opportunity to more healthful clime. Tbe surgeon- general, under the direction of tbe sec retary, a few days ago, inspected a tract of land adjoining Muntauk Point, Long Islam!, belonging to the Long Island Railroad Company, which has been offered to the government as suit- abe lor a large encampment. The tract is thiee miles square, contains an abundance of fresh water, a considera ble lake, a hill 10 feet in height, and many other sanitary advantages, io- eluding salt water bathing. The necessary orders to eqntp this ae a camping ground w ill go forward im mediately, and every advantage w ill be taken of the experience gained in the formation of the great camps at Cbicka- rnauga and Camp Alger, to make the conditions os comfortable as possible for the bettle-ecarred veterans in Shel ter's army. Tbe time for their removal is left to General Shafter, the only lim itation placed npon him being that be shall not delay the homeward sailing of bis troops beyond the moment when it shall he safe for them to leave San tiago, having regard to the fever condi tions. Meanwhile, details are being made o f troops to supply the force that shall garrison Santiago so long as it shall be fonnd necessary to contint!« troops there. This fotce w ill be made up almost altogether of im m une* General Shafter's daily bulletin, ae posted by the war department, follows: Total sick, 4,122; total fever, 8,193; new coses fever, 822; cases fever re turned to duty, 542; deaths, Private J.

Washington, July 30.— The cabinet discussed the president's answer to Span’s peaoe proposal, and readied a decision to demand the follow ing gen eral conditions: Absolute surrender of Porto Rico to the United States. Recognition of the independence of Cuba, cession of one of the Ladrone islands as a coaling sta tion, and cession to the United States of at least a coaling station in the P h il ippines. The question undecided is what dis position w ill be made of the P h ilip pines. It can be Btated that there is practically no difference of opinion in the cabinet on the retention of the Philippines as a whole, all the mem bers being opposed to our acquisition of these islands. There has been no decision on the extent to which the government w ill go in its decision re specting the future of these islands, but it is expeeted the answer of the president w ill express the willingness of this government to leave the matter of the future government of the P h ilip pines entirely in the hands of a joint commission, to be appointed by this government and the government of Spain. The probability is that the United States w ill insist on oertain re forms in the government of the P h ilip pines. Our answer w ill make no mention of a money indemnity. Neither w ill there be any armistice at all. The answer w ill be In the nature of an u lti matum, and if Spain does not accept it she w ill fare worse in tbe future. C O N D ITIO N S F a v ora b le IN HAVANA. Report B rought m an To urist. by a G er Berlin, Aug. 2.— The news of Prince Bismarck's death, which became gen erally known only through special edi tions of the papers, produced profound sorrow, as so sudden a realization of the fears o f his demise was not expected. Several paperB this morning published special articles with mourning borders, expressing, in feeling terms, the na tional sorrow, and dwelling on the b ril liant and immortal services of the prince to the fatherland, his heroic greatness and his truly German charac ter. Sorrowful sympathy over Prince Bismarck’s death is manifested in many ways. The news is constantly discussed in public places, and a feel ing of sadness prevails among all classes of people. Particulars of the last mo ments of the prinoe and other cicruin- stances attending his death are eagerly sought. Many private houses show flags at half mast. Secretary of State Von Buelow w ill return from Siemmer FATAL ing, Austria, immediately. Washington, Aug. 2.— By direction of the president, the follow ing dispatch was sent tonight to Hon. Andrew W hite, United States ambassador to Germany: “ Washington, Aug. 2. — White, A m bassador, Berlin: The president charges you to express, in the proper official quarter, to the bereaved Ger man nation and to the fam ily o f the deceased statesman, the sorrow which the government and the people of the United States feel at the passing away of the great chanoelior, whose memory is e w e r associated with the greatness of the German empire. ADEE, “ A cting Secretary.” 4, 1898. IN Santiago de Cuba, Aug. 1.— A pan icky feeling prevails in business cir cles here, owing to a fear that the Americans w ill turn the city ovei to the Cubans for self-government- No confidence exists, ow ing to the uncer tainty of the future. Orders that w eie given during the first da\s of the American occupation have been coun termanded by cable. European mer chandise on through bills of lading via N ew York has been ordered unshipped and sold in New York, even at a sacri fice. The same feeling extends to the Cuban merchants themselves, who seem to have lost faith in the ab ility of their own people to control affairs. The rebels demand independence, but the better classes, the merchants and land- owners, dread such a possibility, and fervently hope that the United States w ill retain the reins of government in the island, as the only guarantee of stability or prosperity. Senor Julian Cendoja, agent of the Ward line of steamers, says that hundred Spanish merchants have ap plied for cabin and baggage room on the return trip of the steamer Ph iladel phia, which is expected today, and they w ill leave the city unless there is some assurance from the American gov eminent that it intends to control the administration of public affairs in Cuba. This is the question uppermost in everybody’s mind. Spanish, foreigners and natives are all alike anxious for a definite expression from Washington of the policy of tiie United States with regard to Cuba, and until the expres sion is made, no resumption o f trade or commerce can be expected in Santiago, where today both are in a demoralized and chaotic state. APPEAL THUBSDAY, 8t. Louis, July 30,— August Grope, one of the foremost merchants of Cuba, who has lived in Havana fo- 34 years, stopped here today en route to G er many on a visit.

(Reported by Downing. Hopkins Co., In c - Board oi Trade Brokers, 711 to 714 Chamber o! Commerce bulldiug, Portland, Oregon.] The average wheat trailer is bearish, but does not stand short, an advance o f )%o to lc runniug him in. He is afraid because farmers are not selling tbeir wheat as freely as they did last year, although prices are but slightly d iffer ent. Conditions a year ago were ex- trem elr bullish, foreign cropa being snort, and the m ajority o f foreign trad- el* were outspokenly bullish and bad m illions of bushels bought for Septem ber and Deoembar delivery. T h ey kept up their buying right along and made heavy engagements for ocean room. Freights from Chicago to L iv e r pool a year ago were , 11)^0 a bushel on wheat, and now they are 7.8-8. The Amerioan grain trader saw the largeet exports for tbe twelve months ending June 30 that he is liable to witness in many years. N ot one in the trad* ever knew their equal, and they may not witness a repetition. Foreigner« are now selling wheat short, as they know that their home crops are nearly equal to their requirements. France w ill need very little, if any, the Dana- bian provinces hare a larger snrplns, and tire m ajority of tbe European coun tries w ill not be in the m aiket aa buy er*. Export liouees figure that we w ill not ship more than 140,000,000 bushels of flour ami wheat for the coming twelve month* The world’s crop is estimated at 844,- 000,000 bushels above last year’s, which does not warrant higher prices unless there is an nr.usnal wave of speculative buying, which for the present is not diecernable. There is no ball leader, and no proepect of getting one. It ■» true that the farmers bare more money and are in better position to hold tbeir wheat, so that it may not be forced on the market as rapidly as in previous rea r* This may have a sustaining influence, but w ill make a slow and dragging market. Exporters at the seaboard and eleva tor people here have been short fo r July, having accepted order* for ship ment this month. This has oieated an urgent demand for prompt shipment. It is too Late to get much wheat to the seaboard for this month’s delivery, and the m ajority of the shorts have covered. S e a ttle M a r k e t » .
