OFF' IIAIIAMA CHANNEL , May 30.-Via (
Key West.-New ) ( York World Cablegram-
Siecial Telegram.-For ) ten days Admiral
Sampson's fleet has been lying on the sea
between the Cuban coast and Bahama banks
or cruising slowly from 100 to 200 miles off
the east of hIas'ana where the gulf narrows -
rows Into Bahama channel toward the southeast -
east and the Santaren channel opens to the
northward. Through the first week of this
waiting it was the plan of strategy to corn-
mand these two channels as the only approaches -
preaches to the westward by which the
Spanish fleet might attempt to cater these
waters or make a dash toward havana or
Key West ,
Admiral Sampson assembled this fleet at
a rendezvous 200 miles cast of Xhavnna one
week ago iast Tue'sday , bringing with him
some ships from the havana station , where
the ilag ship waited two days to pick theni
up , others joining the squadron later by
prevIous appointment. \VetTh'sday , May
25 , there was gathered at the enranco of
the old flahama channel a fleet rem'rkable
in that every type of naval architectur was
represented. There were five cruisers , the
ilagshiip New York , Detroit , Montgoniey ,
Cincinnati and New Orleans ; one battieshii ,
first class , the Indiana ; three monitors
Puritan , Amphiatrite and Miantonomah ; four
gunboats , \'icksburg , Machins , Newport and
Wilmington ; two torpedo boats , Foote and
Rogers ; one dynamite cruiser , the Vesuvius ;
two supply and coal steamers , torpedo boat
destroyer Mayliower anti another converted
yacht hornet and two armed tugs ,
It was undoubtedly the plan that if the
Spaniards fled from Schiloy and tried to
double Cape Ilayti , Sampson would be waiting -
ing with a grim welcome. There was no
escape , but before the American admiral
could turn to their destruction Schhey had
caught the enemy in Santiago anti hail hot-
tleii them up , their choice being to conic
out and fight or stay in and starve.
The Spanish navy in these waters now
ceases to spread alarm by reports of its
phantom movements. The gulf Is as safe
for Anicrican vessels as the waters of Long
Island sound. The entrance to Santiago bay
is by a crooked channel. There are to
forts , which arc scnrcel , ' worth consider-
tog as modern defenses. Two or three
hulks or barges sunk as obstructions would
block this channel.
IItSItrg'IIIM in Control.
Santiago province is altogether in the
control of the insurgents. There is no railroad -
road hI thIs province by which supplies
could be brought from Havana or Cien-
fuegos to the relief of the beleaguered fleet
even if Spain's soldiers were iii force
through this region. The insurgents have
only to close in around Santiago city to cut
off all chances of relief by land. It is only
a question of time measured by weeks before -
fore these four magaitlcent Spanish cruisers
must surrender by the ignominious agency
of starvation and become valuable additions
to tile naval force of the United States , unless -
less they choose the desperate alternative
of coming out to fight with defeat certain
aliti only th ? glory possible to inflict data-
age on the enemy before lowering their col-
ore over their shattered ships.
If they would rather remain in the harbor -
bor , then it is for them only in their cx-
treinity to put tbeir crews ashore to fight
the insurgents and starvation and blow up
the Vizcaya , the Oquendo , the Cristobal
Colon , tile Maria Teresa and the torpedo
destroyer Terror , rather than have them
augment the hostile forces. But there is
opportunity for some pretty torpedo boat
dashes by each side before the definite end
is in sight.
Schley's squadron is to be reinforced.
ET2tlghi ships will be left behind for protecting -
tecting and covering the landing of troops
and blockading the coast.
I llatl not seen an American flag over a
sailing vessel ten miles off the coast of
Florida , but totlay we passed two large

There have been many impressive sights

but none to stir the pride and patriotism
so much as the coming of the Oregon , reporting -

Norman's letter In the Chronicle dated
Washington says ft study o the whole sit-
uatton appears to dictate the capture of
Santiago by land. The trdops now chafing
at Tampa are amply sumc1nt to acomphish
this , and transports now costing the gov-
crnment $5,000 a flay are ready to convoy
them on a few hours noticd. Santiago Is
cut off by a roadless country and insurgents -
gents from the rest of Cuba , It is therefore -
fore impossible for 'hllanco to reinforce It
even if ho could spare the troops. To cap-
tore Santiago would compel Cervera to rush
onto certain destruction , sink his ships or
surrender. The administration , if it chose ,
could establish the Cuban government
safely there. Such a scheme seems the nat-
oral strategical solution of the present
combined naval , military and geographical
problem and is calculated to bring the war
to a conclusion without great loss of life ,
which would certainly be involved in the
long delay followed by an in'asion of Cuba

KEY WEST , Fla. , May 30.-Any doubt
remaining as to the exact location of
Admiral Cervera's fleet was removed by reports -
ports brought in by naval scout ships , and
forwarded in tile Associated Press dispatches -
patches of Saturday night. The Spanisil
squadron is anchored in the harbor of
Santiago , and tile problem remains for the
commanders of the Alnericali fleet to dispose
of the enemy , either by corking the bottle
or by forcing the loig ; , narrow passage and
alliashing tite strong Spanish squadron at
tile anchorage its commander bias clwcn.
It bias been the'opinion of Rear Adntiiiml
Sampsoa that Admiral Cervc'ra would seek
either Santiago or Cienfuegos as a naval
reftigo anti base , and the movement f the
two American squadrons has proqqIc .vrtnu.
this basis. Strong and effective an are the
Spanish ships , representing as theydo tile
flower of ( be Spanish navy , every argo-
meat , in the opinion of American naval
strategy , compelled Admiral Cervera to
seek the shelter of the closed harbor of
Santiago or return to Spain , and he chose
to make hii refuge at Santiago. 'That he
woultl court a fight in the open sea is nu
itlea which has never been entertained iii
American naval circles , although his ships
without exception have high qualities , cuing
to their great speed , for such a con u'-4t.
On the other hand , it 'wAS believed the
Spanish admiral would attempt to
run into San Juan do Pore
Rico , but the fact of the
recent bombardment of the forts of that
harbor , coupled with the great possibility
that Rear Admiral Sampson's ihect would
be met if be attempted to enter that harbor ,
heft tile Spanish admiral only one alternative -
tive , and he adopted it by going to Santiago ,
where , it is presumed , he has been able to
coal , clean and repair , anti is in a iosition
to accept either the contlitious imposed by
tilat blockade or the issue of a fight in the
inner harbor , after the American fleet has
forced the passage.
It has been thought that the campaign
against Admiral Cervera might now be ended
by demnolishling the forts at tile entrance of
tile harbor of Santiago , blockading the chan-
nd and isolating the Spanish fleet until the
other problems ef the war arc worked out.
This , however , is not in line with the Artier-
ican policy , and , simply accepting the view
of tile situation taken by the naval experts
here , Admiral Cervera will have to accept
battle at once. It is Comluldently expected
tb.t a hard blow will be struck s'ithlin three
or four days , and that the result will be
known to the world nt the expiration of that
tinle. It. has hot been disclosed whether
Commodore Scitley Is to be reinforced , but
it. would not be surprising if some additional
ships were sent to him ,
