Menaced by the American forces on

dofoats and without hope of victory,
General Toral yield his city to save
With the final stroko of the Span
ish General's pen, the only strong
hold in the province of Santiago hus
fallen and the power of Spain in
eastern Cuba is crushed.
The victory is greater than ap
peared at first. All the Spanish
troops in the Fourth corps, the mil
itary division of Santiago province,
from a line drawn north from Asse
raderos, eighteen miles west of San
tiago, through Los Palmas Sorin,
Alcantaza, to Sagua do Tanamo, on
the north coast and eastward to
Cape Maysi, are surrendered and the
torritory is abandoned.
Between 18,000 and 20,000 .Span
ish prisoners are taken, about 10,000
of whom are in Santiago. The re
mainder are at Guantanamo and
others are garr'soned in the towns
of eastern Cuba. All these troops
are to be embarked and sont bank
to Spain under parole.
OENEIIAr sHHAArr TALKS OPT1H. VICTORY.
General Shafi.r bears his honors
modestly. To a correspondent of
the Associated Press he said:
"The enemy has surrendered all
the territory and troops east of San
tiago. The terms woro dictatel from
Washingon. It has boen a hard
campaign, one of the htrdest I over
saw. The difliculties to contend with
were very great. Never during our
civil war were more difficult prob
loms solved. The character of the
country and the roads made it seem
almost impossible but to advance in
the face of the enemy. The trans
portation problem was hard, but all
the difficulties have boon successfully
surmounted. Our troops have bo.
haved gallantly. They fought like
heroes, and I am prond to have corn
mnanded them. During all the hard
ship they have suffered they have
shown resolution and spirit. They
deserve to conquer.
"The resistence of the enemy htts
been exceedingly stubborn. Genoral
Toral hats proven himself to be a
foeman worthy of anty man's steel.

TIiE END CAME SWiFTLY AND UNEX'.CT
'hio end camto swiftly and unex
petodly. The Situtiago Campaign,
With its deeds of splendid daring
and (lark with the record of slaugh
to'', had boon believed by many mon
high in rank to have only just b.
gun. The refusal of the Spanish to
surrendor has been so emphatic and
so recent that both army and navy
had forsaken the idea of victory
without further bloodshed, and noon
today had boon sot for the final and
desperato assault upon the stubborn
defonsos of the city.
That its fortifientions wore strong
and that its forces wore bravo all
know, and today had boon looked
forward to as likely to be the blood
iost in the history of tho campaign;
and, when soon after 2 o'clock this
afternoon Admiral Sampson received
by signal the nows that General
Toral had surrendored, the admiral
and his oficors scarcely credited tihe
When Gonoral Toral on Monday
last refused absolutely to consider
the torms of unconditional surrender
and when General Shafter announced
negotiations at an end, it was be
lioved that the taking of the city
without further fighting was anl im
possibility. The artillery of the
Federal forces was ordered to be
rushed to the front., the investing
ine was extended to the town con
pletely and every preparation was
made for the final assault.
Acting under instructions from
Washington, however, General Shaf
tor again proposed surrender, and at
a conference yestordlty at which
General Miles and General Toral
were present, it was proposed to al
low the Spanish officers to retain
their side arms and the American
commander offered to return the do
foated army to Spain under convoy
The story of the conference has
already boon tofd. General Toral's
announcement that the matter would
have to be referred to his government
convinced the majority of the oflicers
at headquarters that nothing further
would como of the negotiations and
an order was issuod to prepare for a
general attack at 1)oon today, at
