Claimed Toral Did Not Receive Author ity to Capitulate. 1 ft MADRID, July 81.—A semi-official note lias been published explaining the circumstances from a Spanish standpoint of the surrender of San tiago de Cuba. It declares that the letter which Gen. Toral "is alleged to have written to Gen. Shatter" is apocryphal, as the telegraph version "contains a statement which it is im possible for Gen. Toral to have made, because it is untrue that his govern ment authorized him to capitulate." The note continues: "What happened •was that the minister of war received two telegrams from Gapt. Gen. Blanco. The first dispatch described Gen* Toral's position, which was most pitiful because of the want of provisions and ammunition. It also detailed the enemy's proposals. In the second telegram General Bianco gave the terms of the capitula tion and requested instructions. The war minister replied to both by telling Gen. Blanco to leave every initiative to Gen. Toral, for it was impossible to recommend any other line of conduct. Gen. Toral accordingly acted as he thought advisable and would explain before a court martial the motives that induced him to capitulate." 1 FLAG WENT DOWN. Spanlih Force* at Caimanera Give Up and Haul Down Their Flag. CAMP MCCALLA, July 20, via Playa del Este, Guantanamo Bay.—A launch from the Marbleheari went up the bay to Vertcaya del Voro, opposite Cai manera, and gave formal notice to the Spanish commander of the surrender of General Toral's troops, together with the conditions of the capitulation of Santiago. A limited time was fixed for hauling down the Spanish flag floating over Caimanera. The Amer ican officer also gave notice that if the Spanish gunboat Sandoval was dis abled in any way, or if any arms, ammunition, public buildings or the barrack at Caimanera or Guantanamo •were destroyed, the Spaniards would not be treated as prisoners of war. Later the flag was hauled down. From Spanish sources it is learned that the total force in Guantanamo aqd Caimanera is about 5,000 men, of which number, however, only about 3,000 are fit for service, the others being dis abled by sickness or wounds. I ARRIVAL OF THE TEXAS. Starred Santiago Citizen* Hall With De I light the Red Cross Steamer. SANTIAGO DE CUBA, July 18, via King ston, Jamaica, July 19.—The Red Cross society's steamer State of Texas, ar rived yesterday at 6 o'clock in the aft ernoon, and this morning at daybreak Dr. Elwell, who was in charge of the work of unloading, secured eight stores in the heart of the city and one large shed on the dock, engaged eighty stev edores and began to unload the steam er. She had 1,400 tons of provisions on board. The distribution began at 3 o'clock, allowing a pound and a half of rations to each citizen. When the unloading began, crowds of half-starv ed citizens rushed to the docks, fight ing, trampling one another under foot, breaking open cases and stealing the supplies. Finally a picket of troops was placed on the wharf, refusing ad mittance to anyone. Each applicant was furnished with a ration ticket, supplied by the local commissioners, with General McKibbin's endorsement. TROUBLE WITH CUBANS. Strained Relations Between Uncle Sam's Forces and the Cubans. I SANTIAGO, July 20.—The fact im pressed more and more every day on the American officers and men is the increasing strained relations between the Americans and Garcia's Cubans. Indeed, the situation has now reached a point where there is practically no communication between the armies and their relations border on those of hostilities rather than allies. The Cubans were particularly angered by Shafter's refusal to allow the Cubans to enter Santiago when it surrendered, in order to prevent them from looting it, as they did Baiquiri, Siboney and El Caney. The American officers and men no longer conceal their contempt for allies who will neither fight nor work. That Garcia is displeased with the turn of affairs is shown by the fact that he declined Shafter's invitation to assist in the surrender of Santiago. Will Come Down Gracefully. "VANCOUVER, B. C., July 21.—Accord ing to advices brought from Hong Kong by the "Empress of India," the chief news is that Manila is ready to surrender. Not that it is going to vol nntarily capitulate before it is com pelled to. but that the backbone of resistance is unquestionably broken, and upon a real show of intentions to bombard the town, it will haul down the Spanish flag. The Pelayo Damaged. MARSEILLES, July 20.—A -steamer, which has just arrived reports that she sighted, off the coast of Tunis, the Spanish fleet commanded by Admiral Camara. As the steamer passed the battleship Pelayo a column of smoke suddenly issued from her, and from the fact that a cruiser had to take the Pelayo in town, it is evident that the most powerful warship of Spain lias been damaged. Decline to Surrender. MADRID, July 21.—General Parreja, Spanish commander at Guantanamo, refuses to be included in the capitula tion of Santiago. Under the Spanish code a commander can only surrender the troops under liis immediate com mand. Consequently it .is claimed the surrender includes only the troops actually at Santiago.

Sullivan is au incarnate fiend and has seven indictments hanging over him. Two of these indictments charge him with incest, the victims being his sis ters, who. at the time the indictments were returned, were 15 and 12 years of age. The parents of the Sullivans have been dead for some years and the two girls had no one to properly care for them. They lived with their broth er in Waukon. Not until the older girl was in a delicate condition did their brother's eriine become known. The girl, when persuaded to reveal the identity of the author of her ruin, named her brother as the guilty oue. Then all the facts became known and the horrible tale included the younger sister as his victim also.

July 22.—The doors of the Commercial State Bank have been closed until the state bank exam iner has finished his examination.

The express officials were held to the federal grand jury for exacting pay for revenue stamps on express receipts from shippers. Contrary to the usual custom of awarding contracts to the lowest bid der the United States government recently awarded a big contract for rubber boots and shoes to the highest bidder, owing to the manifest supe riority of the grade submitted by the successful bidder, Geo. Watkinson & Co., Philadelphia, manufacturers of the "Thistle" brand of footwear. Bentley & Olmsted, wholesale boot and shoe dealers of Des Moines, re cently received a request from the United States army officials at Chicago to submit bids to the government for 50,000 pairs of shoes. The same firm recently furnished 5.000 pairs of shoes to the army, and they were so satisfac tory that the request was made for a bid on the larger order, which is in all probability the largest order ever bid on by an Iowa firm. At Mason City recently Justice Cum mings bound Mrs. Lottie Hughes, charged with the murder of her hus band, over to the grand jury and fixed the bonds at 84.000. The preliminary hearing occupied four days, but in accordance with the request of attor neys for the defense has been conducted behind closed doors. Consequently nothing is known as to the nature of the evidence offered, aside from state ments of attorneys and witnesses that it was sensational in the extreme. Des Moines dispatch: The people of Des Moines have subscribed more than 81,000,000 to the new war loan. How much over that amount has been sub scribed it is impossible at this time to ascertain, but the amount is probably very much larger. It is known, how ever, that through the banks exactly $929,500 has been subscribed and with the possible exception of $100,000 of this amount, most of it was subscribed by individuals in amounts ranging from 8100 to 836,000. A large propor tion of the money offered in payitont for the war bonds was not drawn Jwm the banks, but represents wealth hoarded in waiting for opportunity for absolutely safe investment "v(T,f'/^w dTONE IN HER STOMACH. From the Gazette, BlandimvMe, 111. The wife of the Rev. A. R. Adams, pnsto* of the Bedford Christion Cburoh at Blan dinsviUe, 111., was for years compelled to live a life of torture from disease. Her case baffled the physicians, but today she is alive nnd well and tells the story of her recovery as follows: "About six years ago," said Mrs. Adams, "I weighed about 140 pounds, but niv health began to fail and I lost flesh.

The famous Canadian corporation, the Richelieu and Ontario Navigation Company, has issued a Guide Book, en titled "Niagara to the Sea," which may be had by writing to the general offices of the company, 288 St. Paul street, Montreal, Canada, and which anyone who may be thinking of mak ing a pleasure trip through Lower Canada this summer will find it ad vantageous to consult. The handsome and commodious steamboats of the company traverse a route which for picturesque beauty and historic inter est is not surpassed, is barely equaled by any water highway in the world. Toronto, the western terminus of tho line, a handsome, prosperous, bustling city, in itself is well worth a visit, is easily and expeditiously reached from Niagara Falls, and from there the sail across Lake Ontario and down the St. Lawrence River, past Kingston, Brock ville, Prescott and Cornwall and other well-known places to Montreal aud Quebec Is distinguished by a varied and abiding charm. The tourist passes among the far famed Thousand Islands, and, although he must not expect to see the best of them from the deck of the boat, he will be able to get an Idea of the secret of their singular attractiveness. If the season is propitious—that is, during the months of July and August—he will experience the peculiar sensation known only to those who have shot the Lachine and the Long Sault Rapids, and when he reaches Montreal he will find himself in a city which combines many of the graces of the Old World with all the energetic progressiveness of the new. Should he continue his journey to Quebec, he will feel as though he had crossed the Atlantic and arrived at some ancient European cap ital. Montreal is In most things as modern as New York, but Quebec, al though by no means wanting in the conveniences of life, seems to belong to a bygone century and to another world. It Is essentially foreign an all the varied aspects of its life. From Quebec it is but a short jour ney to the Saguenay River, which, in the wild and awful sublimity of its environment, is beyond compare. Poet—''Poets,sir,are born,not made."

Anns and ammunition have been intro duced, by many mountain passes into Navarro, Aragon and Catalonia, it is supposed with the connivance of the local authorities on both sides of the frontier. The Carlist agents and lead ers know that they can act with a cer tain amount o£ impunity, because, so long as the pretender and his repre sentatives and newspapers in Madrid patrioticalty disclaim all intention of disturbing1 the peace during the war with the United States, they feel cer tain that Sanor Sacjastn and the au thorities will not dare to arrest or mo lest Curlists. They also assume that Senor Sagasta cannot afford to affront a large section of the people and risk civil war, when his hands are so full. In some few places, however, the mili tary governor has suppressed the Carl ist newspapers and warned the Carlist juntas that stronger measures will be taken if they persist in agitations.

WASHINGTON, July 21.—An authori tative declaration has been made that Porto Rico will beheld as a permanent possession of this country as a price of the war. The subjoined is practically an official statement made to the As sociated Press: ''Porto Rico will be kept by the United States. That is settled and has been the plan from the first. Once taken it will never be re leased. It will pass forever iuto the hands of the United States. There never lias been any other thought. Its possession will go toward making up the heavy expense of the war to the United States. Our flag, once run up there, will float over the island per manently."' The same authority says the future of the Philippines is a mat ter of dcvelopement that so far there is no certain policy finally adopted re garding these islands. They arc sub ject to developments in the war situa tion in the Pacific. It was intimated, however, though not definitely assert ed. that theLadrone islands might fol low the fate of Porto Rico and become our permanent possession, being valu able as a coaling and supply station for our ships when en route to eastern Asia. To Transport Spanish Troops. Wasiiisotox, July 21.—Arrange ments have been concluded by the government for the transportation of the Spanish prisoners at Santiago from Cuba to Spain. The contract was awarded to the Spanish Trans Atlantique Company. The company agrees to carry the prisoners from Cuban ports to .Spain at the rate of S20 for each enlisted man and S55 for each commissioned officer, subsistence to be furnished by the company on the army ration basis as provided for in the government advertisement for bids. The award provides als-j that the company shall have enough ships at Santiago to complete the transportation of the prisoners in 21 days. On the basis of 24,000 enlist ed men and 1.000 oflieer, it willl cost the government 8535,000 to transport the prisoners. The ships will fly the colors ot Spain and will be manned, probably entirely, by Spanish crews. Another Irene Incident. Loxnox, July 10.—Ilong Kong cor respondent of. the Daily Mail says: United States Consul Wildman informs me that as the German cruiser Irene was passing Marivcles, off Manila, the other day, the United States gunboat Hugh McCulloch was sent after her to ask her to stop. As the Irene refused to obey a shell was sent across her bows and a .small boat went to discover what she was doing. The German ad miral protested and insisted that Ger man ships had a right to enter the harbor without being-searched, a claim which Admiral Dewey declined to rec ognize. It is reported that Admiral von Diedriclis. who is, in command of the German squadron at Manila, inter viewed Captain Chichester, of the IJritish cruiser Immortalite, as to what he would do if the Germans interfered with the bombardment of Manila. Captain Chichester replied that only himself and Admiral Dewey knew that. Havana and Ttlnneo Isolutert. WASHINGTON. July 21.—Gen. A. W. Greeley, chief signal officer, cabled in struction to his officcs in Santiago to seal up and place a guard over three cable lines connecting Santiago with C'ienfuegos, whence, by a land line, communication is established with Ha vana. (ien. Greely has just been in formed that his orders have been car ried into effect. The closing of the C'ienfuegos cables absolutely isolates Havana and Gen. Illanco from Madrid. Blanco's only means of communicating with the Madrid government is by the Key West cable, which is under the strictest censorship by the government of the United States. As a result of the scaling up of the Santiago-Cien fnegos cables, several cipher dispatch es passing between Gen. Blanco and the Spanish government hnve drifted into this country. It is scarcely nec essary to say that they dul not reach their destination. Second Expedition Arrives at .Manila.

What Is doing On In and Around Uncle Sam's New Possession. Santiago, July 22.—Lieutenant Miley, of General Shafter's staff, has left here with a t-roop of the Second cavalry, mounted, to make the rounds of the entire military district of San tiago for the purpose of receiving the formal surrender of the Spanish forces, lie goes first to San Luis, where there arc about 4,500 of the enemy's troops. He will then receive the surrender, in order, of 800 men at Cobrc, 1,200 at Catalonia, 2,500 at Guantanamo and 3,500 at Baracax A total of 20,000 Spaniards are. expected to yield their arms to this one troop of cavalry. To reach Baracao Lieutenant Miley will be compelled to ride straight across the island to the northern coast, led by a Cuban guide. He will ride under a white flag for protection, but (ien. Toral has sent members of his staff ahead to notify the post commanders of ttie terms of surrender. The wound of Gen. Linares is much more serious than reported. Ilis left arm has been amputated and he is in a scriotis condition. The readiness and avidity with which the storekeepers accept green backs is remarkable. General Shafter's orders to close all the rum shops has had the effect ol keeping the city quiet and peaceful. Many of the Spanish soldiers are anxious to become American citizens and are applying for naturalization papers. The useable ammunition of the Spanish troops was exhausted before the surrender, as the 2,000,000 car tridges found in the magazines of San tiago do not fit tho Mauser rifles. At the battle of El Caney, our cas ualties exceeded those of the Span iards. While they had 400 men killed to our 200, they had only 500 men wounded to our 1,500. The list of the wounded has been increased since to over 2,000 men, who are lying in the Principe Alfonso, Mercedes and other hospitals here. DEWEY CALLS GERMANS DOWN- Wants to Know Whether the Countries Are ut Pcaco or War. NKW YORK, July 20.—The World's Manila special of uly 14, by the way of Ilong Kong, China, says. "Admiral Dewey sent a message to the German admiral recently to inquire whether America and Germany are at peace or war. If they are at peace lie demand ed that the German warships pursue a different course. If they are at war he wantc 1 to know it, so he could gov ern himself accordingly. Dewey was prompted to send this peremptory message by the action of the German cruiser Irene in preventing the insur gent attack upon the Spanish garrison at Subig bay, which greatly displeased him. Admiral Von Diedriclis, in com mand of the Germrn fleet in the Pacif ic, returned a vei-bal answer which was apologetic in tone to Dewey, stating that he objected to the Americans stopping a German ship which had been in the bay once and had been visited. The German ships have made a practice of coming into Manila and then making trips outside the bay, cruising among the islands and return ing in two or three days. The German contention is that a ship should not be stopped after the first time. Admiral Dewev replied that Manila was a blockaded port and that he would con tinue to have all ships communicated with when he desired, whether on the first or the hundredth time of entering the bay. The German admiral responded, still objecting and saying that he would submit the question to the senior ofliccrs of his other war ships. NO PEACE. So Says New Story From Madrid—J'lgtit to the Knd. MAmui), July 19.—Defense works are being actively pushed at all the Spanish ports. It is supposed that the American peace terms greatly excited he public. The opinion is expressed among the people that war to the death would be preferable to the ruin of Spain. WASHINGTON, July 19.—It is learned that the government docs not look for peace overtures from Spain before the fall of Havana. It is understood the policy of the president will be to post pone the Havana campaign until fall, and the belief exists in high official circles that Spain will put off the in evitable until the last stronghold in Cuba is lost before making an effort for a cessation of hostilities. Surrendered 22,789 Men. WASHINGTON, July 20.—The war de partment has received a dispatch from Gen. Shafter saying that the roster of prisoners was handed in by General Toral. The total showed 22,789 men. Shafter's dispatch added that the pris oners turned over to him far exceeded in numbers the strength of his own army. Gen. Shafter asked the war de partment to hurry forward a few regi ments of immunes for service at San tiago, in order to have the minimum danger of infection from the fever which prevails there.

"Caleb West, Master Driver," is the title of. the latest book by F. Hopkin son Smith, author of "Tom Grogan," "Gondola Days," ctc. Competent crit ics declare that it is not only the best story Sir. Smith has yet written, butit is one of the strongest, manliest, breezi est stories written on cither side of the Atlantic for many a day and it seems safe to predict for it an immediate and lasting popularity. The book is pub lished by Houghton, Mifllin «& Co., Bos ton and New York, and is the custom with these publishers the work of print ing and binding is par excellence. The pages are as neat as the printers' art can make them and the qualitv of pa per is far superior to that ordinarily used. In a beautiful and substantial cover it is one of the neatest books that has come to our table this year. Houghton, Mifflin & Co. announce "At the Sign of the Silver Crescent," by Helen Choatc Prince, whose previous novels have been so favorably received. Like those, this is a story of modern French life, the scene being for a little while at Paris, later and principally iq Touraine. The characters include the heroine, who has married a wealthy Jew in order to restore the shattered fortunes of her family another woman who wishes to be the heorine an unprincipled and shifty cure a young Englishman studying French and a y.onng American studying art. This last may be accounted the hero. The story is written with sufficient local precision to render it effective, »nd with even greater literary skill than that which marked Mrs. Prince's other novels. It is distinctly readable, and leans fitly to virtue's side. It ought to be a popular summer book. Bret Ilartc's many admirers will welcome a new collection ot stories which Messrs. Iloughton, Mifllin & Co., Boston nnd New York, have re cently published. Under the title "Tales of Trail and Town" Mr. Ilarte gathers eight stories, part of them located in California, which is pre eminently his own literary domain, part in Eurpoc—but all told with that sure touch and that literary felicity which gi re him his somewhat unique position among modern story-tellers. The tales include: "The Strange Ex perience of Alkali Dick." "The Judg ment of Lolinas Plain,"' "The Ancestors of Peter Athcrly," "Peter Athcrly's Kindred." "A Tale of Three Truants,'' "A Night on the Divide," "Two Amer icans," "The Youngest Prospector in Calaveras." Vai-iety of theme and char acter is certainly assured lier'e, and readablencss—in Mr. llarte's stories^-"^ always. CUKRENT EVENTS. There are 741 German newspapers published in the United States.
