B alrj, numbering 102,000 men. The Army Or-

Intended to place one regiment of regulars with
tiro regiments of volunteers, forming a brigade.
, By the provisions of the Reorganization law
j t each regiment will consist of 1,200 men, lnclud-

of 3,000 men. Threo of these brigades will form

Their Intention er FliMInc for Uncle Ham.
It was not n multitude that greeted the Amer
ican liner St. Louis when sho warpod Into her
pfer nt the foot of Fulton stroet last night,
after a tumultuous voyog from Southampton
nearly a day longer tnan her usual April trip.
But everybody In the throng was a patriot, and
little flags wero worn by nearly all bands.
The passenger list of the linor waa small, be
cause when she left Southampton thero was
an Impression In the minds of many
Americans that war between the Unltod
States and Spain might begin whllo
I tho St. Louis was on her way here, and
that she and her passengers might fall Into the
hands ot the Bpanlsb. That is why more than
halt tho possongors orlglotlly booked on tho St.
Louts decided to ssil by other lino not flying tbe
Amorlosn flag.
The St. Louis carried only forty first cabin
passengers, and that I tho oblof reason why
there was not a large crowd on the pier. Sho
had 128 second cabin and 850 steerage pas
sengers. Prof. M. D. Borlllz, a cabin pas
senger, said that the ronservnttva tone of
tho English papers had led him and many
other passenger) to twlleve that tho chanco
ot a conflict betwoen Opsin and the Unltod
States was remote. They were much surprised
wbou tbo pilot boarded the 8U Louis off Sandy
Hook lightship lato yesterday afternoon and
told them that war existed between the United
States and Spain.
Tho pilot hod a newspapen of Thursday last
which he gave to tho purser. Tho cabin pas
sengers crowded uround tho paper, which n pas
singer with a good volco finally read aloud. It
was not until tbe steamship got to quarantine
that it was known bow far tho war had gone.
Many of the women Waiting at the American
Hue pier were fearful, after they road tho scare
storlcsln tho afternoon extras about tho probablo
capture ot tho American liner Paris, which
sailed from Southampton on Friday, that tho St.
Louis might also havo been in danger from Span
ish cruisers. Sonio of tho women were nervous,
but all wero happy when they saw their rela
tive and friends looking at them from the
docks ot tho liner.
As tho big ship moved slowly up alongsldo the
pier, passing the many open gangways, folks
ashoro greeted those afloat with remarks about
the war. A tall, solemn-looking man on tho ship
was the object ot much attention from n group
of mlddle-nged women and girls. Ono of tho
girls was evidently the solemn man's daughter.
Sho shouted to him:
" Papa, w o havo captured four Spanish shlpsl"
'rYou ought to have captured all of them,"
tbo solemn man answered in a subterranean
voice. '
"But thcy'vo got the Paris," the girls said.
"I don't believe it." the solemn man an
swered. When tho gangplank was put up there was a
rush for the plor by the elated passengers. No
men or women wero ever hugged moro enthusi
astically, A wife who was halting on tbo pier
for her husband said: "I thought'lbey had cap
tured you."
" We hod no fear of that," he answered, "this
ship Is swifter than any the'vo got."
Capt. William G. Handle and all bis officers
learned the moment after tbsy landod that Uncje
Sam. would extend to them the privllego ot re
ecllstlng in tho servlce-a,ot the United States
Navy. Fifteen tnlnutesjAfur the shin had been
(led Up to her .pier eve:jr ono ot her, officers , had
atifi-d UeSmflp'Jtft UoouLJjJrW-tbfi AajarP
can Hoe that We was willing to 'sign for a year's'
cruise on ths St. Louis.
Several of her officers aro of English birth, as
are also many of her crew, particularly those In
tbe engineers' department. Mr. Griscom said
that there was no man whe was not anxious
and willing to .go. lie also said that
Capt. Randlo would bo the actual com
mander ot the ship as far as her
management was concerned, but that ho and
his officers and tbe crew would bo under the di
rection ot United States naval officers, who will
have charge ot the ship.
All of tbe St, Louis's cargo will bo discharged
before noon to-day, and nearly all the stores she
will need in her cruising will bo put aboard
beforo to-night. It Is thought she will be ready
for scrvlco to morrow morning. Mr. Griscom
says she will bo used chiefly as a despatch, and
scout boat. It Is like!) that she will have a
light armament, but she will depend chiefly on
her heels In tho sort ot work for which tbe Gov
ernment needs her most.
The American liner New York, sister ship to
the Paris, Is duo at this port some tlmp this
morning. She left Southampton three hours later
than the St. Louis, and, not belngasgoodnrough
weather ship, she will probably bo half a day

NuwroiiT Nkws, Va., Anrll 23. Excltcmont
was causod at Old Point this evening by th
boomlna- of tho "All aboard " gun shortly after
0 o'clock. In an Instant everything was In a
bustlo and confusion.
OnlcerS who had been lounging around the
hotels chatting with frlonrts went down to tho
pier rapidly to embark for their respective
ships.
Out In the river signal lights wero flashing
among tho vessels of tbo flying squadron. It
wrs said that orders had been received for tbe
Columbia and Minneapolis to sail in an hour
on soma socrot mission. Tho offlcers were erv
reticent, and refusod to divulge tbe destination
of tbe vessels.
It Is believed here, howovcr, that the two
fastest vessols of the flying squadron have been
despatched to meet the Paris and convoy her
Into port.
As soon a tbo orders wero received the
anchors or the Columbia and Minneapolis were
rajsod and dense volumes of black, smoke
pouring from tbe smokestacks told that tbe
stokers were at work, and that the swift cruis
ers would soon bo ready to put to sea,
Tho transport Panthor, with 750 men aboard,
arrived at Old Point ibis evening, and it was re
ported that tho Columbia and Minneapolis
would escort this vessel to Key West
It was learned later that thn mrlnia wm nnf
Intended for the flying squadron and that Com
modore Schley's ships wero Intended for some
other services.
At 11:45 P. M. the Columbia and Minneapolis
passed out. ,
NonroLK, Ya, April 23. Thu swift orulsera
Columbia and Minneapolis suddenly went to
sea at midnight. It is dark as pitch nnd rain
ing. When tho order to sail came a number of
the offlcers of the Columbia and Minneapolis
were In tho hotols.
Messengers summoned them to tbelr ships at
once and they hurriedly obeyed. It thero Is
other work than guard duty cut out for tbo two
swift cruisers It Is not known.
The groat secrecy maintained by the naval
authorities since hostilities bogan makes It Im
possible to do more thun conjecture tbe purpose
of tho Government.
All tho other ships of the squadron remain at
anchor, giving no indication ot any intended
movement.
WAsniNOTON. April 22. Nobody connected
to-night' .fcfcoub th.VdeparttitV ot tno fly
ing sqasdron froeT Hampton ' Roads would
give any Information on the? subjoct.
It Is tho genersl bellot in naval clr
cles, bowevor, that Commodore Schloy's ships
havo gono out this tlmo for business, and not
merely to engage In manoeuvring and target
practice. What Commodore Schley's ordors are
only a few officials of the Navy Department
know. Commodore Schley will probably not
be any bettor Informed about his mission
until he gets outsldo tbe Virginia Capes
and translates his orders from tho naval cipher
code into plain English At tbo Navy Dopart
mont tbo general bellof among offlcora not con
nected with tho Bureau of Navigation was that
the flying squadron would remain at Hamp
ton Iloads until something was known about
tbe programme of the Spanish squadron at St.
Vincent, Tho officers of th Navigation Bureau
would not talk about ship movements.
When it was known here to-night that the
squadron was preparing to sail, naval ofrlcora
expressed much Internet, but had nothing, ex
cept theories, to offer. Somo ot them were
of tho opinion that Commodore Schley's
Ave ships have been ordered to meet the Oregon
and the Marietta on their long voyage from tbe
Paclflo around to Key West, Their belief was
bassd on the fact tbat tbo two American vessels
would pass within 1,500 miles of theCape Verdo
Islands, where the Spanish squadron is con
centrated. The Oregon and the Marietta are supposed to
be in tbe Atlantic now. They havo prob
ably Just about passed through the
Straits of Magellan, for It Is said tbat
tbey took that route instead of going around
Cape Horn, a longer but safer course. It Is
1,010 miles from Bt. Vincent to Peruambuco,
and 1,775 miles from St, Vincent to Para,
Brazil. Theso are the shortest cuts the Spanish
esssls could take It they wanted to Intercept
tbe American battleship and tbe little gunboat
accompanying her.
The American vessels, according to tbe naval
offlcers, will keep well out to ess. They are not
yet withla the danger line. Their next port will
bo Montevideo, and it will be ten days or two
weeks beforo tbey ran get there. Ot
course. Instructions will be sent to Capt,
Clarko of the Orogon, when he reaches Monte
video. Ho will ptobably hoar his first bows
thero of tbo hostilities between Spain and tbe
United States.
From Hampton Itoads to Pernambuco, by way
of St. Thomas and Barbndoes, the dlatuure Is
3.650 miles, and from Hampton roads to Para
2.010. From tho Atlantic entrance to tbe
Straits of Jt ii Bel I nn to Montevideo Ihe dis
tance Is about 1,200 miles, from Man
let Ideo to Klo It Is 1,050 miles, and
from Itlo to Pernnmburo 745 miles, or
from Bin to Para about 1,600 miles. The flying
squadron cannut proceed much faBter than the
Oreson, on account of the slowspoed nt which
tho Columbia, Minneapolis, and tho Brooklyn
would havo to proceed to remain with the Mac
BHihusetts nnd tho Texas.
Taking Pcrnninhuco as tho point of Junc
tion bitwocn the flying squadron and tho two
American ships from tbe Pacific, thodlstanrcs
to bo traversed nrn 3.H50 miles for tbo fljlng
squadron and 3,000 miles for tbo Oregon nnd
the Marl'itta.
If the Oregon and her consort reached Per
nambuco first tboy would wait there for tho
flying squadron, Tho Spanish Hoot would have
only 1,0111 miles to travel to reach Ptrnaiubuio.
It Is not consldorod In tho least probablo
that the SpanUh vessel will try to Inter
cept the Oregon and the Marietta bo (ore
they get to Monteiidro, where the com
plete Instructions a to tbo courso to
pursue will bo awaiting them, NnvMottlrrru
bellovo that tho combined force of tho flying
squadron nnd tho other two American warships
would be sufficient to whip the Spanish forma
tion. Tbe latter Is composed of a bittleshlp, far
infhrlor to the Oregon and Massachusetts, four
armored cruisers, three torpedo boat destroyers,
and threo torpedo boats, leaving out the accom
panying merchant steamships, the City of Cadiz,
and a collier,
Another armored cruiser Is now on hr war

Ing qua4ron would line up In an engage

three torpsap boats. Amerioan: three battle
ships, ono armored cruiser, two protected
cruisers, and ono gunboat six Spanish nrmorod
craft lo four American, but with tho American
vossels ot this type far superior to the Spaniard.
With tbe wonderful records made by the ships
of the Flying Squadron In target practice, every
thing would favor success to tho United States
vessels,
The Navy Department has considered among
other plans tbe dispatch of the flying squadron
to harass tbe Spanish coast, but It Is believed
among naval officer that instructions to that
effeot wore not sent to Commodore Schley.
It was learned to-night on apparently good
authority that a proclamation will probably be
Issued pn Monday or Tuosday declaring a
blockade of Han Juan, Porto Blco. This would

Cable communication with Havana by way of
Key West was subject to a good many delays
yesterday and was entirely ausponded last
night, wbon a report camo that the cable had
been out """ .
The cable ofllco at 10 Broad street hod posted
a notice in tho afternoon, dated 2:40 P. M as
follows!
A censorship! has bsn established by tho
United State! Government at Kej West, Flo,,

The result of the Key Wost censorship last
night was that nothing was ollowod to come
through relating to the movements of thefleot
now before Havana.
About 8 o'clock last night word was received
that the cable was out of ordor. This roport
was not made to tbo offleo In the Western Union
Building, but only to the cable office In Broad
street. Tho broak In the sorrlce was thought
thore to bo only temporary, nnd It was said
that the cablo would probably be In operation
to-day, subject to tho censorship at both ends.
The censors on, this end are understood here
to be naval offlcors. and their occupa
tion of the Key West office is thought
to amount practically to a seizure ot
tho lino by the Government. No messages In
code or cipher words will be forwarded, and any
against which there Is the slightest suspicion ot
a hidden or hostile meaning will bo refused.
The understanding here is that the steamer
Mangrove will cut tho cable leading from the
south coast of Cuba to San Diego, whence ther
is communication with St. Thomas.
It is thought possible, however, that attar this
Is done tho Koy West cable may be cut also,
leaving Cuba absolutely without means of communication.

Lokdcw, April 23. ThoAmerlcanllno steamer ;'
Pari passod the Lizard, steaming rapidly west .
ward, shortly beforo midnight last night, This w
fact Is definitely known. The best opinion hero d
Is that she is now pursuing a somowbat unusual -.a
course toward Nw York at tho highest speed f jj
bar engines can develop, but in London to-day ij
oach hour has brought out f resh editions of tha 'j
newspapers, with new stories of her being pur-
ued or captured by a Spanish warship which 'g
was lying In wait for her on her course south of u
Queenstown, jj
Two out of four clrcumstsntlsl reports of her M
capture have beon completely dlsprovod. Only ii
her arrival at Cadiz as a prlzo ot war or at New J I
York, roady to be rechrislcnod a one of tho y
vessels of tho American Navy, can determine ft j
the truth ot tbo other tno. Sho was not chased '
in the English Channel, she did not run back to J
the Isle of Wight, and she has not boon officially ' iu
reported or sighted at any point except th J
Lizard. J
It Is doubtful If a Spanish man-of-war would iff
hare dared to molest the Paris In tho English f I
Channel. Its waters havo been regarded by in- : j
tematlonal consent In recent yoars as entirely l I
within British and French Jurisdiction, and $ !
they aro, therefore, neutral. Thb high seas be- 1 1
gin technically throe miles boyond Llsard Point. j
Nevertheless Capt, Watklns, tho master ot the
Paris, was Instructed to hug tho coast as much as
possible In ordor to escapo tbe observation ot it
the Spanish boats which wore known to bo
cruising In the western waters of tha Channel. j t 8
His signalling tho Lizard nt midnight was un- J, I
expected, but tho night was dork and moon- n
leu, and It is believed that ho trusted to this
faet and tho alteration of bis course to escape i ' a
observation. a g
As soon as ho roacbod tho unprivileged waters j i
beyond tbe Lizard there la no doubt ho also '( . f
resorted to extinguishing all tho lights usually Jj i jj
carried. Daylight should havo found the f ', 1
steamer well boyond danger of observation or j F
pursuit by any available Spanish warship. f I

lookout for tho enemy off Cape Race. j , $
Nothing, of course, Is disclosed concerning tho ) L- a
