This leaves the question of return of arms entirely in the hands of the Govern? ment. I invite attention to the faet that several thousand surrendered, said by General Toral t?. be aboul 12,000, against whom a shot has not been fired. The return to Spain of the troops in this district amounts to above 24,000, accordin? to l ieneinl Toral. "W. R. SHAFrER, U. S. Volunteers," TORAL AUTHORIZED TO CAPITULATE.

Oeneral Wheeler's Headquarters. before San* tlago de Cuba, July 16, 10 a. m., vla Kingston, Jamalra, July 1(5?The prellmlnary basls for the capitulation of the Spanlsh forcea ln Eaat ern Cuba was agreed to and slgned under a plcturesque cleba tree half way between tha llnen shortly after mldntght. The American commlssloners were Invited to enter the clty by those representlng General Toral. but tha lnvltatlon was decllned. and the conference waa held under the spr^adinjr cleba. At the very outset a hltch oecurred, owlng to a misunderstinding of what was sald at tha persor.al Intervlow between General Shafter and General Toral at noon. At that tlme tha In tarpratar, translating the language of General Toral. had glven Generals Shafter. Mlles and Wheeler dlsrlnotly to understand that Captaln General Blaneo had consented that the com? mlssloners should have plenary powers to nego tlate the terms of surrender, such terms aa they agreed upon to be bindlng upon botb partles. Somethlng was sald ahout a ref?rence to th* Madrid Government. but General Shafter Inslsted that the capitulation had been actu.illy agrce.] to, and that no further tonaaat of the Madrid Government araa requlrnd. wanikd CONSENT oi' MADRID. When ths commlssloners met shortly after 2 o'clock ln the afternoon those ln hehalt of Oen? eral Toral (General Escario, Lleutenant-Colonei Fortan and Alb-rt Mason. the Brltlflh Vlce Consul), combated at once the idea that the capitulation had in fr.ct actualrjr taken place.

Ai! this was extremeiy anaattafactory to the American commlaalonera, who elnng tenaclotHtp to the understanding Oeneral Bhafter had re? celved earller ln the day. Flmilly, wiih the question of xvlnthcr or nct the spanlsh forcea had actnally aurrendered atlll open, the com? mlssloners proeeeded to the oocsideration of the prelimlnartea. OBJBCTBD ro "isrRRKN'nF.R." raptaln Mlley had drawn up thirteen artlclea of a general nature, and these were submltted tO General Toral personally. He made a strong appoal that the word "capitulation" be used lnstead af the harsher term "surrender," and that hls army be allowe.l to march out, the offlcers with their side arms and the men with thelr small arms. He aald the arms could after ward be sent to Spain, elther on the aame shipa wlth the troops or on some other shlps. General Toral further remarked that he ex? pected the commlaaloaatra as representatlvea of a brave and chlvalroua peopie would not seek to humiliate his army or make lt appear that he waB vanqulshed. As brave men, hla soidlers deslred to go home wlth honor. They had slmply ylelded to superlor force, and they would pfOfar dylng to going home wlthout thelr honor. The American ?"'immlsslorers could r:ot reslat thls appeal, but they Baid It lay DOyOttd the lerms lald down by the Government. and they could only recommend the matter to Washing? ton. At 4 o'clock General Toral reiurned to the clty to consult wlth Oeneral Lir.area.
