FEVER AT TAMPA
ilaste in Breaking Up the Camp
There Explained
Troops Not Sent to Porto Rico
Will Be Withdrawn To
Other Points
Washington July 20 Special
A part of the transports have
left Tampa for Porto Rico and the
remaining troops will at onc6 be re
moved to Ferdinanda as the de
partment has indisputable informa
tion that yellow fever has broken
out there
The camp at Tampa will have
to be broken up at once said my
informant
The transports had to sail in
order to get to sea before fever
broke out among the troops in them
Yellow fever cannot thrive at sea
if the fires are banked and the
sails spread
Upon receipt of the news orders
were sent for ten transports td sail
at once
It is possible though not likely
that the Second Kentucky will not
be included in the Porto Rican ex
pedition Gen Brooke wanted to
take the full First Army Corps in
the expedition but owing to the
fact that yellow fever had broken
out in Tampa which forces the de
partment to take more troops from
that point Gen Brooke has been
limited to one division of his corps
The First and Third Kentucky
are in the Third Regiment of the
First Division and if the division
remains as now organized both will
go to Porto Rico But Gen Brooke
has been given plenary power to
rearrange his command to suit him
self
It is barely possible that should
he decide upon a rearrangement
that only Col Castlemans regiment
will be included in the invading
army of Porto Rico
The President said this morning
to some Senators who called on him
that he had received no peace sug
gestions and did not expect any
He said moreover that he did not
expect the war to end now without
a campaign in the Havana province
THE CAPTURED RIFLES

Springfields
Washington July 20 Special
The ordnance bureau is busy
preparing to use the Mauser rilles
captured from the Spainards
Probably the Mausers will be used
to replace the Springfields which
many of the volunteers are now

Preparations are now being
made to embark the fifth expedition
to the Philippines within four or
five days
Information from San Francisco is
that the equipment of the expedi
tion is progressing rapidly and the
troops are expected to be ready to
sail as early as the 25th The ships
to carry the expedition are the
Scandia St Paul and Arizona
