At Santiago Bay for
Gen, Shafter Will Clear

No Small Job to Land
Large a Jorce,
Thn Exact Point of Landing: Still
Kept a Secret,
Washington, June 21 It is ex
pected here that General Shatter Is
landing his troops, a work which
will require sagasity and nerve, as It
will hayo to be accomplished under
the cannon's mouth. It will require
nearly a week to land the forces. All
plans for the debarkation have been
arranged and Is expected the fleet of
transports will lie in a safe position
until Sampson has cleared the way for
a landing, a place which has been
selected hy the commanders.
The first business in order upon the
irrlval of the transports off Santiago
Is a war council between Sampson and
some of his nayal ca'pWnfuomthc one
nana, ana bimrter ana ws'htau on too
other, the purpose being to settle all
the details of the debarkation. Mean-
while the fleet of transports would lie
out at sea at least 10 miles beyond the
blockading squadron, in order to be
entirely safe from attack by the Span
The work of debarking the troops Is
not to be one of hours, according to
the opinion of army oilicers. A great
deal depends upon the point selected
for the lauding. It was thought the
Aguidores, cast of Mora castle, would
be a likely landing place, in yiew of
the fact that it lias a wharf which
would be extremely useful for landing
heavy supplies and the ordinance of
the siege train.
nThe army olliclals feel confident
that Shafter will make an effort to
restore cable communication as soon
us he has landed a force, and are ex
pecting a cablegram at almost any
mument announcing the fact that he
The rerort that supplies have been
reaching Havana from the soutli by
way of Batabano and a short line of
railway connecting that town with
Havana Is no news to naval officials,
who have been aware of this fact for
a long time. They are not, however,
deeply concerned over it, as it is not
believed to be the main purpose of
the campaign to cause the surrender
of the capital through the starvation
of its Inhabitants. Nevertheless, In
view of the decree to which the
practice of carrying supplies to
Havana has been extended naval
oilicers have tightened the guard
lines against South Cuba.
The-refusal of the Spanish oilicers
to exchange Hobson cause a disa
greeable feeling here. While there Is
no positive obligation upon a belli
gerent to exchange prisoners, yet It Is
the universal practice in civilized
warfare. In the case of Hobson, ills
rank aa assistant construct r, which

Is equivalent to lieutenant of the
Junior grade, shall oe the sole basis
for his exchange, yet it Is obvious to
the authorities here that the Span
iards hold him, not a? a lieutenant,
but as a popular idol of the United
States In this respect his detention
ceases to be that of prisoner
and becomes one of hostage.
May Land Today.
A Hew York Times special says
The capture of Santiago may turn
out to be easier than was expected,
but preparations huve been made op
the assumption that the Spaniards
will make a resistance equal to thai
which would be made by the same
number of American troops holding
a like position. Hut the Spanish wly
be weaker than General Shatter and
the licet combined, while the reports
about the activity and efficiency of
the Insurgents lead army men to hope
that their assistance will bo of some
Willie there Is
here concerning General Shatter and
his jirmv. thorn Is n unlvnrail desiro
to hear of his arrival and landings
Army and navy men argrcc In th
opinion that if the army reaches San
tlagoor the point at which It Is ln
tended to land before Monday, or,
even Tuesday, it done ernor- gov
well. The transports would not salll
at high speed, some of them may
have been detained, and as the fleet
would keep together In order to
offord the slowest ships tho benefit ofi
tne convoy, It Is observable that the
expedition might not reach Santiago
until tomorrow or next day. j
General Shafter was rather expected
to run ahead of the fleet and troops,
and to arrive at Santiago or Guan-
tanamo somewhat before the other
vessels, taking tho risk, which is not)
regarded as great, of meeting with
Spanish cruisers. The assumption of
naval oilicers Is that any day danger
of that kind would be reduced by
sending ouc of the convoy V2ssels
along with tho Seguncla us a guard
for the commanding general.
An oilier of tho army who has seen
a great deal of service ana who has n'
high opinion of the ability of tho
United Mates army, expresses the
opinion that the campaign against
Santiago will be a short one, and that
it will not be a show of fighting abil
ity that will give a victory to the men
under General Shafter. Although
the United States troops arc not all
properly clad, most of them havo good
shoes and all have plenty of food and
good medical attention. The case Is
different with the Spanish soldiers.
Their commissary is bad, owing to
the indifference of the oilicers to the
welfare of the men, for whom they
make no sacrifices.
Excepting garrisons usually taken
care Df, the hospatal service Is Inade
quate, and to that Indifference is at
tributed tho great mortality among
the Spanish troops. Tills oillcer said
the same conditions In dis
tricts where Spanish military habits
arc found. The United States forces
will be superior as much for the reason
that they are fed and paid as for
their greater cnergyus a race.
War department still keeps secret
exact point of landing of tho military
cxDcdltion to Santiago. It may be at
the first harbor, and it may be at tho
last, borne suggest that there Is reason
to believe that both the east and west
approaches may be utilized.
The early reports from General
.Shatter following hU landing and
observation of the situation are ex
pected to giye the department an idea
of the probable duration of the
campaign. The commander will also
Instruct the departmentos to whether
on the plans already adopted there
are enough men to do the work. If
not, a sufllclent number, whatever it
may be, will be hurried forward to
assure complete success at the earliest

It Is reported from Key West on tho
authority of several naval olllcersthat
Ulanco has notified the commander of
the American lleot that ho will here
after recognize no Hag of truce.
W. Ramsden, the Hrltlsli consul nt
Santiago, now acting for tho United
States In the negotiations with tho
Spanalrds for the exchange of Lieu
tenant Hobson and his comrades, has
suggested to the olllcluls at Washing
ton that even u random might bo paid
to becure tho prompt relenso of tho
American prisoners. Tnut Idei. was
undoubtedly expressed In cable dis
patches which passed through the
colonial authorities here, but In w'-nt
form It was shaped Is not clear.
It was also recalled tliut when
Colonel Cortojo, confined at FortSMc
Phcrson, Oa,, was exchanged, It was
strictly on the basic of his rank, with
out consideration of the Incidental
fact most luiportunt to General
Jilanco. thatCorteJo was a close rela
tion of the former captaln-gouoral.
The naval olllcluls attach no Im
portance In the half-masting of the

bombardment as Indicting that Hob

supposed that tho .Spanish lijg would
