WASnisoTON. July 25 Nearly all tho big
ships of tho navy, which hnvo been constantly
In servico slnco long before tlio war began, nro
to bo brought to the United States for over
hauling. Only one or two of tho battleships
and nrmored cruliors will bo taken from West
Indian waters at the samo time, bnt tho Navy
Department has deeldod that tho work must bo '
performed us rapidly as possible and all avail
able docks will bo utilized.
Tho Texas has been ordered to New York
from Santiago, nnd will probably reach tho
Brooklyn Navy Yurd in a few days. Llko nearly
all tho other ships, sho Is suffering f rom splin
tered decks and bulged bulkheads, caused by
tho concussion of tho big guns. All the esscls
to bo brought homo need cleaning. Tholr liot
toras aro bofoulod by tho rank marine growth
ot southern wntora. thus retarding tlioir speed
and reducing tholr general efficiency.
Few of the ships requlro repairs on account
of dnmago dono by tho onemy's shells. Tho
Indiana neods somo renovating on account of
tho damngo mado by a shell thatdropped on
her deck ono night and exploded when no firing
was going on. It has novor been ascertained
whether this shell eamo from a Spanish battery
or from ono of Shatter's mortars. Tho Brook
l)n received a number of wounds from tho
rapid-flro guns of tho Cristobal Colon and other
Spanish ships in tho engagement of July 3. and
the Iowa has an unoxplodod shell sticking In
her sldo. Tho Indiana and tho Iowa will follow
tho Texas to New York. Tho work on tho
Toxns will tako two weeks.
Just w hat offoct tho withdrawal of tho battlo
shlps from West Indian waters will havo on tho
programme intrusted to Commodore Watson
for execution has not beon dlsclosod, but It is
practically certain that tho expedition of tho
Eastern squadron will bo postponed until tho
vessels havo been ovorhaulod. Of tho esscls
under Watson's command tho Nownrk Is In
prlmo condition, fresh from n navy ynrd; tho
Yankeo nnd DIxlo aro In pretty good shape,
and tho Yosemlto is at Now-port News, waiting
to go Into dry dock for a quick overhauling.

mer IlMorti Under Instructions to
ainlio Freclse Inquiries on the Subject.
WAsniNQTON, July 25 The Administration
Is studying tho futuro relations of tho United
States and tlio I'htllpptno Islands with great
care and not a llttlo anxiety. It Is a question
that has been presented to tho President and
his advisers within tho past few days, not from
a new standpoint exactly, but with a knowledgo
that tho European powers are taking n lively
Interest In its determination, A member of tho
Diplomatic Corps In Washington to-dny told a
reporter ot Tur. Sux that tho stories which
camo from abroad last wock, that tho Conti
nental powers had formod a combination to
protect tholr Interests In tho Islands and In
effect to protest against a disposition ot them
that did not tako Into consideration their do
slros, wore based upon correspondence among
them ns to n concertod Inquiry to ho mndo of
tho United States Government as to Its inten
tions. It was thought strango that tho mprcsonta
tlvosot European countries, after having only
recontly established themselves forthosunimor
at soastdo and mountain resorts, should return
to Washington In tho almost tropical bent that
prevailed hero for tho purpose of calling on tho
President and Secretary of Stato merely to ro
now assurances of distinguished consideration
and esteem on tho part ot themselves and ot
their rcspectlvo Governments. Tho French
Ambassador was at tho 'W hlte Houso on tho
llth Inst, and tho Gorman Ambassador last
Friday It turns out, according ti tho diplo
mat reforrcd to, that they all camo back under
Instructions to mako precise Inquiries on tho
subject of tho Philippine Islands. Not only did
tho Interested European countries havo theso
inquiries mado. but Japan and China. Interested
because of tholr proximity to tho Islands nnd of
tho possible effects upon them ot a radical dis
turbance of tho relations of Europenn nations
In tho fur East, also sent their Ministers to usk
similar questions.
Tho answer was of necessity somewhat
vague and altogether general In Its nature, for
tho reason that the Administration doos not
know w hat will bo dono In theso islands Tho
condition ot affairs existing thero was alto
gether unexpected, and aroso out of tho for
tunes of war, that could not havo been foreseen
nor guarded against had It been desirable to
do so. The Inquiries wero met by tho state
ment. It Is said, that whatever tho Issuo may
bo in tho islands the United States will en
deavor to so conduct matters thero as to glvo
no just causo ot offenso or anxiety to other na
tions, hav ing In view always tho rights and du
ties of this Government thoro and tho Interests

Yellow lrr situation Improving ."SOO New
C'unes of Sickness on Sun. In).
WtsnihOTOv, July 25. Tho Intention of tho
Wnr Department to maintain Shnftor's army in
southeastern Cuba for the present remains un
changed, and them is llttlo likelihood that tho
troops will be brought back tothe United States
boforo fall. Tho proposition has beon consid
ered by tho department to bring nt least a part
of tho army to tho northern coast of tho United
States nnd to establish it in somo healthful
camp on tlio seaooast until tho soldiers
have thoroughly rocuiierated from tho hard
campaign lu Santiago province. It has
been thought best, howover. for sev
eral reasons, not to attempt to do tills.
The principal objection is that danger would
immediately arlso of spreading yellow fever in
tho United States during tho summer months,
and the mere Miggostlon thntucamp of San
tiago troops might bo established in tho United
States has already aroused opposition. Tho Ad
ministration at prcsont bolloves that the best
policy Is to koep Gen. Shaffer's troops in San
tiago on as high ground ns possible nnd to
carefully Isolate all ensos of sickness w hlch can
possibly develop Into jellow fever.
Tho yellow fover situation in Santiago Is nt
present slightly Improving, according to ad
vices received from Gen. bhaftor to-night. If
It should appear within tho next fow weeks
that yellow fever lnfoctlon has beon thoroughly
stamped out among tho troops at Santiago,
most of them would probably be brought to tho
United States and encamped in somo healthy
locality during tho summer. This despatch
was received to-night:

Tho rurchaso by tlio navy of so manymor

Washington, July 25 -Information was ro
colvod nt the War Department to-day that
Major-Gen. W. It. Brooke, who will bo second
In command of tho United States forces In Torto
Blco. would Ball from Nowport News to-ulght
or to-morrow on tho nuxllliir) cruiser St Louis.
Ho vv HI bo accompanied by tho members of his
staff, nnd, ns ho Is to bo carrlod on ono of tho
fastest vessels In tho nnvv.lt Is nrobablo that
ho will bo landed on Porto llleo soil within tho
next four da)s. Gen. Brooko will tnko with
him a considerable body of troops. Including
his headquarters guard, and the St. Louis will
be accompanied for n part ot tho distance nt
least by tho St. Paul, having on board Gen.
Haines nnd a part of his brlgndo belonging to
tho First Division of tho Tlrst Army Corps.
Other troops from Chlckanmuga will boom
barked as rapidly as possiblo for Porto Illco.
aud It Is expected that by tho end of tho week
strong military forcos will bo established at
throo points on Porto Illco soil.
Among thoso to go from Chicknmaugn aro
tho regiments belonging to Gen. Frod Grant's
brigade. Tho opinion was oxpressod In the
Quartermastor Ooneral's office to-dny that ono
regiment of this brlgado would reach Nowport
News In tlmo to ombark on the cruiser St.
Louis with Gen. Brooke. It was said that thoro
was room for this regtraont on tho vessel, and
that tho ombnrkatton of tho troops was a ques
tion only ot tholr reaching Nowport Nows In
time to go aboard tho St. Louis boforo tho tlmo
appointed for hor sailing. An effort is also bo
Ing made to send light batteries A and 0 of
Pennsylvania either on tho St, Louis or tho
St. Paul.
Formal orders wero Issued to-day directing
tho First Florida, Second Georgia and Fifth
Maryland Volunteers to ombark Immediately
for Porto Ilico. These regiments are at present
Btatloned at Tampa, Fla , as a part of tho Fourth
Army Corps under Gen. Copplnger. Tho do
cislontoscnd thorn to Porto Ilico was partly
duo to tho criticisms of the Administration for
not having employed Southern troops In tho
campaigns against Santiago and Porto Blco.
The regiments aro woll equipped for service
and aro in no way inferior to tho volunteer or
ganizations from other parts of tho country.
Tho War Department received a cablo de
spatch announcing that tho supply ship
Panama loft Santiago to-day for Porto Rico.
Tho Panama was recently flttod out at New
York with a full supply of provisions of various
kinds tor tho array of invasion In Porto Rico,
and It Is probablo that sho will join tho trans
port fleet which boro tho detachment ol troops
undor the immediate command of Major-Gen
Miles.
Tho despatch of troops from Tampa. Charles
ton, and Newport Now s tor tho Porto Ulco cam
paign carries out promptly the Administration's
plans for follow Ing up Gon. Mlles's detachment
with ample forces to act In cooperation with tho
first expedition. Tho Administration Iscongrat
ulatlng Itself that tho plans forthe Porto Blco
campaign havo thus far beon carried out with
far greater promptness and preliminary suo
ciss than attended tlio expedition to Santiago.
Tho bovornl bureaus of tho War Department
most Intimately coneernod with tho outfitting
of tho expedition havo performed their duties
with tho success which would havo been ex
pected after tho valuablo experience acquired
lu moving tlio troops on Santiago. Tho Gov
ernment has not )0t been Informed of tho ar
rival of Gen. Miles, but no concorn is felt on
that score. Tho Administration ofllclals could
not iiosslblyhnvo exieeted to hear ot his ar
rival before to-morrow, and no alarm will bo
felt If advices from tho commanding General
nro not received until late to-morrow night.
Tho War Department feels sure that Its elab
orately perfected plans for tho movement
against Porto Rico cannot fall to bo successful
from tho very beginning, nnd no fear of for
midable resistance by tho Spanish to tho land
ing of troops In Portolllcohas existed recently.
Thero nro at prcsont six transports at New
port News ready to carry troops to Torto Rico.
By the mlddlo ot noxt week it is expected
tint enough more will have arrived at that
port to raise tho total number to sixteen or
seventeen, although several ships will un
doubtedly havo sailed for Porto Blco in tho
meantime. Tho Harvard and two minor ships
aro expected at Nowport Nows on Thursday
next, and four or flvo vessels of good capacity
will probably bo thero on Tuesday.
