It is understood that the withdrawal
of some of the German warships from

that the feeling of the Americans at

ships in the harbor was one of sus

An official of the foreign office, ex

government, said: "The presence there
of our waiships was solely due to our
desire to protect German interests in
the Philippine islands which are too
large for one or two ships to protect

as the presence of ships at various
points at the same time might be nec

"VVII.I. LEAVE THKlll ARMS.
Secretary AI K er Settles a Disputed
•*<>"iit at Santlau-o.
WASHINGTON, July 16.— The arms
surrendered;; by. (the Spanish soldiers at
Santiago to* Gen. Shf.-ter will be kept
by the United States government. This
conclusion, Cached late this afternoon
by the president and Secretary Alger,
was made* "public by the latter as he
left his offlce at 6 o'clock tonight for
■his home. "All those who have arms
will turn them over to this govern
ment. This is final." These were tlie
secretary's words when asked for In
formation on the subject. "And," he
added, in response to further inquiries,
and to clear any doubt that might
exist, on the subject, "the rifles will
not be returned to Spain."
The decision 1 no doubt already has
been commurdeated to Gen. Shafter.
Up to the time when Secretary Alger's
emphatic statement disposed of all
doubt on the matter, it was thought
in some quarters that consideration
might be given to the appeal made by
Gen. Toral in behalf of his men that
they be allowed to keep their arms. In
fact, it was said by a high department
official that the. president would await
the recommendations of the United
States commissioners to the surrender
on this subject before disposing of the
question, especially as Gen. Shafter
■had telegraphed the department that
it was understood the United States
commissioners would recommend that
the Spanish' soldiers return to Spain
with the arms they so bravely defend
ed. This decision of the president ap
plies alike to those Spanish soldiers
who have-not been engaged with the
United States troops, as well as to
those who'-havfe been participants in
the .recent batties.

ANNAPOLIS, Md., July 16.— Admiral
Cervera, the recent commander of the
Spanish squadron which was destroy
ed off Santiago, and about forty Span
ish officers, were brought to this city
today and are now prisoners of war
within the historic preoincts of the
United States naval academy. The
auxiliary steamer St. Louis brought
the foreign visitors up Chesapeake bay
this afternoon. Her blaok hulk was
sighted by the tugs off Annapolis at
3 o'clock this afternoon and immediate
ly a fleet of small craft that had be^n
waiting far outside the city since eariy
morning, put on all steam and a half
hour later were surrounding the great
cruiser in the hope of seeing the Span
iards. Soon after she came to anchor
the St. Louis flew signals for the gov
ernment tug Standish, which had been
tied to the wharf at Annapolis, with
her fires up, since 3 o'clock this morn
ing. The tug at once put to sea. About
4 o'clock she tied up to the starboard
side of the St. Louis and for nearly an
hour there was a transfer of baggage
and bundles between the two vessels.
Then throe wounded Spanish officers
were swung down to the Standish in
Admiral Cervera took courteous leave
of the officers of the St. Louis, and
marched down the gangway of the ship
with a stately tread. He wore a black
derby hat and the dark clothes of a
civilian. On his left arm he carried a
brown overcoat. Immediately follow
ing him were the recent governor or
Santiago, also an old man, in civilian
clothes. Capt. Euiate, late of the Viz
caya, and the rest of the Spanish offi
cers. A few of them were dressed in
the Spanish uniform, but most of them
were rigged out wholly or In part In
duck uniforms that had been furnished
them by the American officers.
Chairs had been provided in the rear
of the tug for the accommodation of
the prisoners, and there they sat while
the tug steamed up to the old city
of Annapolis. At the Wharf Command
er Edwin White, with a detachment of
United States marines, was awaiting
their ooming. He received the admiral
in person and escorted him immediate
ly to the superintendent's carriage.
Commander White, Admiral Cervera
and his son then drove to the res<-
dence of Admiral McNair, the super
intendent of the naval academy. A
brief formal call was made there, at
which courtesies were exchanged and
Admiral McNair explained to the visi
tors the arrangements that had been
made for their comfort.
Admiral Cervera was then escorted to
his quarters, a plain brick structure
of three stories, in what is known as
Buchanan row. The house has been
well furnished, and is in all particulars
the same as the houses occupied by
naval officers on duty at the academy.
Soon after the arrival, which was at
5:30, dinner was served for the ad
miral and his staff, in their own quar
ters. The other officers signed the
parole and were conducted to quarters
In Strlbling row, which is used by the

Brings 271 Slek and Wounded Sol
diers From SitiiMP(>-o.
NEW TORK, Judy 16.— The United
States transport Olivette (No. 11) ar
rived at quarantine tonight, bringing
271 sick and wounded soldiers from the
scene of war. Of this number fifty
eight are convalescent and ready to re
join their regiments. When the Olivette
anchored ln quarantine, she was board
ed by Health Officer Doty, Surgeon
General George Sternberg, U. S. A.;
Majs. Bushnell and Hall, U. S. A.; Sur
geon Barnes, of the Massachusetts Vol
unteer Aid society; Deputy Health Of
ficer E. P. Sanborn and Capt. Blake,
of the Richmond borough police force.
Maj. Aple, surgeon in charge of the
Olivette, reported the condition of the
sick and convalescent as being excel
lent and the ship's company much Im
proved in every way. The ship was
given pratique by the health officer.
The Olivette will remain at anchor un
til tomorrow morning, when she will
proceed to Brooklyn, where the sick
and wounded will be removed to the
Long Island college hospital and St.
Shortly after the Olivette dropped an
chor the Staten Island ferry boat went
alongside and took aboard about 100
of the most seriously sick and wound
ed, landing them at Stapleton. where
ambulances removed them to the Unit
ed States miarine hospital. The main
and hurricane decks of the Olivette
presented a most animated appearancv
when the health officer's boat, went
alongside. All were elated to hear of
the surrender ot the Spanish army at
Santiago. Many of the men were sorry
they were not able to be present at the
surrender. Surgeon Aple, of the Oliv
ette, said that he was more than pleas
ed with the condition of the men un
der his care. They had Improved won
derfully since leaving Santiago.
Many telegrams were put on board
and large bundles of papers were dis
tributed. The boys were anxious for
news about the surrender of Santiago.
The pilot on boarding the Olivetti had
said there was a hitch in the negotia
tions. One of the men said: "If we had
been allowed our way. we have gone
plumb into Santiago."
There was no evidence on board of
contagious disease. Dr. Aple said the
improvements made in modern surgery
were the means of saving the lives of
fully 100 men of the 271 on board. The
fine physique of the men was also a
large factor in their recovering. Ed
ward Marshal, the reporter, who was
shot in the spine, was improving, and
when seen here said he felt as com
fortable as could be expected.
