LANDED AT LAST.
SHAFTER'S ARMY LANDED AT
Shafter Will Attack in Rear?Sampson Will Make
it Hot in Front.
Washington, June '2'2.?Today, just a week after the United Btutee troops left
Tortugus. they began to disembark on Cuban soil, landhig in rornmtion at twoj
points, so as to attack Santiago in the rear and nt the sides, with the navy to help |
the work in front. Thus the military invasion of Culm may be said to have fairly
begun, for though the United States murines wire the Hist ol the regulur forces l<> |
laud upon Cuban soil, their pUrpose after all was not invasion, hut tin- establish?
ment of n naval base and a base for a cable station, in both of which they w ere
eminently successful. To the regular troops was left the beginning of the formid
Jftlle task of Invading Culm in force by hind.
?lust at the close of office hours a brie'cablegram came to the War Department
from Lieutenant Colonel Allen. Its exact wording is withheld, bat the statement
was authorized that it said the troops were lauding, and that preparations had
been made to at tack Santiago al the sides and rear. The delay in receiving furth?
er cable communications after the first ( fliist evening is thus explained. The lines
wen? being carried westward, probably to be nearer the point selected ns I he land?
ing place in Cuba.
In his dispatch Lieutenant C.iloncl Allen said that he had In ai d nothing ??lie a'
ly from either General Shafter or Admiral Sampson. This is n< counted for readily by J
^|iis instructions. He was told specifically by General Miles in a cablegram eil
yesterday not to embarrass General Shafter by any mini c ?hhiii-.x suggcl.y.
Tliusit will be seen, to the delight of all true soldiers, Mut G-ii<-r.il Shaftir,
like Admiral Sampson, is not to be tied by exact orders fr.au Washington, but s
to In- allowed the widest liberty of action in the belief that he. being oil I llegiotlad
is capable of judging b.'st I he proprio!y of projected movements. The lieutenant
colonel, however, who is a member of General Miles' stuff ami directly ill charge
of the signal work hi Santiago province, communicated briefly with Geuct-ul Miles
in cipher the fact that the debarkation ol the trnoopa hud begiiu. and that a plan
ol at lack had I.a arranged.
PROGRESS OF THE LANDING.
Washington, June22.?Official dispatches raceived tonight by both Secretary
Alger and Secretary bong indicated thai the landing of troops near Santiago was
piogressing most favorably. The tirsl landing was affected tit Daiquiri this morn?
ing, and met with comparatively slight resistance This was staled in a dispatch
received this evening by Secretary Alger. which, though brief, was full of news and
meaning. It follows:
Plnyn del Kate, .1 line 'J'J.
Secretary of War, Washington:
Off Daiquiri, Cuba, .lane 22.?Lauding at Daiquiri this morning successful.
Very lit He, if any, resistance. SHAFTBR.
Secretary Alger expressed himself ns delighted at the the expedition with
which the 111 tiding of the troops was being effected, and with the fact that no ob?
stacle was being offered by I be enemy.
?JtShortly aler Secretary Alger received his dispatch, Secretary Long n.Ived a
I'mrWextcnded cablegram from Admiral Sampson. It, too was dated nl I'lnyn del
Rste at G:HI) this eveing. The text of the dispatch, translated from Ihn Xnvy De?
partment cipher, is as follows:
"Landing of the army is progressing favorably at Dahpiiri. There is very lit?
tle, if any, resistance. The New Orleans, Detroit, Casline, VVubash mid Suwunee
shelled the vicinity before tlie landing. Wo made a demons!ration ul Cabanns to
engage the attention of the enemy. The Texas engaged the west battery for some
hours. She had one inon killed. Ten submarine mines have been recovered from
the channel of Guuntnunnio. Communication by telegraph bus been established
at (luojitunamo. SAMPSON.
NO FIGHTING FOR SEVERAL DAYS.
Washington, Juno21.?Secretary Alger said after the cabinet meeting that the
only annoiiiiceme.it General 8hufter made hi his communication was to the effect
that the troops were in remarkable good health, lie said thac I lie administration
did not expect any lighting for several days, us yet, aud il would possibly be a
week before there was anything like it decisive battle.
WHY SPAIN WILL HOLD HOBSON.
Kondon, June 21.?A Madrid correspondence of The Times says thai Spain's
refusal to exchange Lien tenant Ilobsoii und his eompuuioim of the Merrininc is
easily explained and is justified. Wit boat any intention of a-tiug as spies, they
must to ha-ve seen many Illings in or around Santiago of which the American
naval and military authorities would gladly have information.
BRYAN TO SERVE UNDER LEE.
Washington, Jane 21.?It is regarded as probnbuhln that Colonel William
Jennings llrydn and lire Nebraska regiment under his command will he assigned

authority for Ihestaienionl that the assignment will be made.
