the eutrance to tho bay of Santl.iiro. and four

lnsurgenta are in full control of nll the eountry
around Santiago to within a few mlles of the

The wisdom of this 1 lnn of campalgn Is evl
dent. Santiaijo is the inont iiuportant place ln
the Islnnd east of Matntizas. lts fall will l>e a
serlous blow to the Spaniards. It wlll make

Cuba beyond Puerto Prln4-lpe whollylnto Amer?
