THE FIRST AMERICAN ARMY
To Sail for a Foreign Shore Is Now

San Francisco, May 26. The
start was made for Manila late this
afternoon and the first American
army to sail for a foreign shore is
now on the broad Pacific.
At 4 o'clock this afternoon Brig.
Gen. Anderson signalled from the
Australia for the City of Pekin and
City of Sydney to get under way im
mediately. The signal was seen
from the shore and the waiting
crowds commenced to cheer wildly.
No time was lost and the vessels
were soon under way. Then the
2.5O0 soldiers let themselves loose,
they climbed to the rigging and
swamed all over the big ships,
shouting and cheering like mad.
The noise made by the patriotic
citizens on sea and shore was some

LATEST WAR NEWS.
The battleship Oregon, with her
companions, the Marietta and
Buffalo, arrived and anchored off
Jupiter, Fla., on the Atlantic coast,
about 300 miles from Key West.
Secretary Alger has issued an or
der mustering the six immune regi
ments into the volunteer service.
One of those regiments will be
raised in Kentucky and Tennessee
by Col. L. D. Tyson, of Tennessee.
The blockade of Cuba is certainly
effective. A cable dispatch from
Havana says that importations be
ing shut off, efforts are being made
to provide an adequate supply of
food for the soldiers. Vegetables
are being planted in large quantities
in the neighborhood of Havana.
The press censor at Key West has
just permitted to pass the news of
last week in Key West. In two days
no less than fifteen battleships,
cruisers and monitors, besides many
smaller warships, put in there and
hurriedly coaled, each sailing as
fast as its bunkers were full, with
out waiting for the others. The bat
tleship Iowa was attached to Com
modore Schley's squadron, which
was ordered to Santiago. Samp
son's destination is unreported. At
the same time all the transports for
the army of invasion lying at Key
West sailed, presumably for Tampa,
Mobile and New Orleans.
The steamships Australia. City of
Pekin and City of Sydney sailed
from San Francisco, carrying 2,5u)

Admiral Sampson is not before
Santiago. He is off on another mis

until lie learned that Schley had
bottled the enemy up. Then his
hVet, minus the Iowa, which is with
Schley, moved rapidly eastward,
but a later dispatch says that he is
ready to bombard Havana whenever
the invasion begins.
An aheged Spanish spy was
arrested at Tampa.
A thrilling sham battle, in which
the three brigades of Gen. Wilson's
First Army corps participated, was
had on the battlefield of Chicka
mauga. Gen. A. S. Burt, command
ing the First brigade, was outclassed
by the Second and Third brigades,
which were pitted against him.
Judge Sam Holding Will Have a Plurality
in the Convention.
The Democratic primary for the
selection of delegates to the Judicial
convention, which meets in Pu
laski next Wednesday, June 1, took
place last Saturday.
In Maury County every district
except the 19th selected Holding
delegates, and this one was lost
through overconfldence, as the dis
trict was largely for Mr. Holding,
but a majority of his friends, not
knowing of the fight that would be
made against him, and confident of
success, failed to turn out and vote.
This gives Holding 37 votes from
Maury County, and Williams 2.
In Giles county Holding gets 5
votes, Williams 17 and Broyles 17.
The election in Hardin county will
be contested before the convention,
two sets of delegates ' having been
elected and both Broyles and Will
iams claiming the county. The
other counties have not yet bten
definitely heard from. There is
some opposition to Williams in
Lawrence, his home county. How
many, if any, districts this opposi
tion carried, has not ben learned.
Broyles will carry nearly if not quite
all of Wayne. Lewis is an unknown
quantity, with its three votes proba
bly divided. Conceding Hardin
county to Judge Broyles, and Law
rence county to Judge Williams,
(their home counties) and dividing
equally the three votes of Lewis,
the first ballot will stand about as
follows: Holding 43, Broyles 38,
Williams 34; total number of votes
cast 115; necessary to a choice 5H.
Unless Broyles loses half of his own
county to Williams which is hard

Secretary Alger said this after
noon that the additional volunteers
called for will not be recruited rrom
the National Guard, as were the
first 125,000, but that the enlistments
will be open. The regulations re
ferred to in the proclamation under
which the enlistments will be con
ducted have not yet been prepared,
and it is thought that there is no
occasion for hurry in this matter un
til the full draft called for in the
first proclamation has been secured.
It is further" stated that the de
cision to issue an additional call for
volunteers was not reached until the
Cabinet meeting yesterday after
noon. The call, it is supposed here,

TO INVADE Cl'B.V AND PORTO RICO.
This Announcement Onlckiy Follows the
Washington, May 25. The Presi
dent's call for 75,000 volunteers will
be followed by an immediate in
vasion of Porto Rico and Cuba. It
was announced at ttie War Depart
ment as soon as the proclamation
was made public that an expedition
of 20,000 troops will be sentatonce to
seize and occupy San Juan and the
island of Porto Rico.
Further than this, Admiral Samp
son has been ordered to take his
fleet to San Ju.iu and prepare the
way for the arrival of the troops.
Tn other words, he is to destroy the
fortifications, so that our army can
land and ocupy the island.
This means that the administra
tion is satisfied that Commodore
Schley has Admiral Cervera and his
Spanish fleet at his mercy and is
fully able to take care of them.
The invasion of Cuba will likewise
be started immediately, and 100.000
men will in all probability be the
strength of the invading army. Re
ports at the War Department show
that there are 13,000 Spanish troops
at Porto Rico.
