AMERICAN TROOP WELCOME.
Triumphal March of Troops Through
PoNCfvPorto Rice, Aug. 3. (Cor
respondence of tJje Associated Press.)
The Porto Rlcan natives, especially
the "poorer classes, have glyen the
American troops a most enthusiastic
'welcome. They had dreamed for
ycars'of the time when the hand of
the oppressors would bo removed freni
their throats, and now It has come.
With the exception of a few of the
few of the rich, tliey seem to care
little about the Independence of the
island. The old revolutionists am
bitious fur political power, inquire
anxiously If wo will retain possession
of the island, and shout enthusiasti
cally. But a great many care little
for independence, apparently sure of
the conviction that we come to drive
out the .Spaniards.
Last Tuesday the writer accompan -led
a reconnoltering expedition under
General Roy Stone, of Pennsylvania,
into the mountains north of Ponce. It
"was remarkable In more ways than
pone, General Miles had ascertained
that the enemy's position at Aybon
Ito was almost Impregnable, and he
had decided to turn the left flank of
the Spanish position, and lauding
General Brooke at Arroyo and moving
hlscolunin to Cayey in the rear of the
Spanish position at Aybonlto. The
advlslblllty of a movement by our left
flank was also discussed. This could
bedone If the road across the moun
tain to Arcclbn, on the north coast,
The start was made at noon. The
road led straight up lo the top of tlie
mountain for ten miles, and 'the
Infantry was soon far bohind. The
carriages were drawn by native ponies
and went up to the mountains at a
gallop. It was right Into the heart
of the enemy's country. The road
rises to an altitude of 5000 feet and
right Into San Juan. One more
descent and wo went tearing into the
town. As rapidly as had been grow
ing the pace, We drove on at a gallop,
and women and children lined tlio
Strcet8bombardlrig us with bouquets
ofvroses and other ilqwcrs, while the
men who formed the background
cheered and cried. "Down with
Spain!" A quaint little town In the
mountains has a picturesque square
where the people can gainer to cheer
and welcome. They had sonie Ameri
can flags, which Waved everywhere.
The alcalde welcomed Gebdi-al Stone
formally, but the latter made the ns
scmbled populace a speech from the
veranda of the town hall. In their
enthusiasm the people could not wait
for translation. Every sentenco they
cheered. It was dark when the for
malities were over and every citizen
constituted himself a. reception com
mittee, besieging the members of our
party with Invitations to dinner.
General Stone hnnllyvatcepteLtlia4aj
yitationofa rich English engineer
who had lived there 54 years. His
children spoke nothing but Spanish
and French, and the old gentleman
wast-o delighted that he can still
speak English that he would not take
no for an answer.
The correspondent insisted upon
going to the hotel, taking with them
ahalfdoien natives who had been
pressing their invitations, and wo had
dinner with half the town at the
doors and windows.
After we had finished, the natives
began to show alarm. They had sup
posed that many troops were behind
us, Twp hundred Spaniards had re
treated through the town in the
morning, and the natives feared they
would return. We informed them that
our troops would bo up In an hour or
more, though we knew they were
tulles behind, After a council of war,
General Stono decided to suggest to
the natives the advisability of their
maintaining a line of outposts around
the city, pending the arrival of our
troops. This they agreed to do, while
we arranged our sleep I pg quarters.
But the eneuiydid not appear. Sev
eral times crowds came under our
windows and awoke us with cheers.

Washinoton, Aug. 18. It was
learned nt thn war department that
the reopening of tlio cable to Manila
was surrounded by some complica
tions. This cable was laid by a British
company by permission of Mic Spanish
government, which granted the com
pany u .subsidy. When Admiral
Dewey cut the cable, becauso the
Spanish authorities would not allow
him tlio use of It, It was healed up at
Hong Kong by order of the Spanish
government, and It Is claimed that an
order from the Spanish government
will tw necessary before the company
will be authorized to reopen It.
It had been believed all along that
ua boon as Manila was In possession of

would feel utjlberty to restore cable
