Washington, July 16.?At 0 o'clock this evening the following message, an
nouncing delinitely the surrender of Santiago, was made public at the White
House. It was received by Adjutant-Gencral Corbin:
"Camp near Santiago, July 10.
"The surrender has been definitely settled, and the city will be turncd over
to-morrow morning, and the trx>ops will be marched out as prisoners of war.
"The Spanish colors will be hauled down at 9 o'clock, and the American flag
CONDITIONS OF THF SURRENDER.
A dispatch received from General Shafter earlicr in the day gave the follow
"Headquarters near Santiago, July 16.
"Adjutanl General U. S. Army. Washington.
??The conditions of capitulation include all forces and war material in de
scribed territor>'. The United States agrees, with as little delay as possible, to
transpotl all Spanish troops in district t.? Kingdom of Spain, the troops, as far
as possible, t<? embark near to the garrison they now occupy. OfficerstO retain
their sidc nnns and officers and men to retain their personal property. Spanish
attthorized to take military archives belonging to surrendcred district. All
Spanish forces known as volunteers Moirilizadvcs and gucrillas who wish
t<? remain in Citba may do so under parole during present war, gtving up
their arms. Spanish forces march out of Santiago with honors of war, deposit
ing their arms at a point mutually agrccd upon. to await disposition of the I nited
States Government, it being undcrstood I'nited States Commissioners will rec
ommend that the Spanish suldicrs return to Spain with arms so bravely defended.
This leaves the question of return of arms entirely in the hands of the Govern?
ment. I invite attention to the faet that several thousand surrendered, said by
General Toral t?. be aboul 12,000, against whom a shot has not been fired. The
