Attorney-General Decides That Bounty Is
Not Fald for Merchantmen Destroyed,
Washington, Aug. 4, Tho Attorney-General
has rendered an opinion virtually rejecting tho
claim of tho officers and crew of tho United
States gunboat flawk for prizo money on no
count of the nawk's lctory over the Spanish
steamship Alfonso XII. Tho Attornoy-Goucral
holds that bountios nro paid only when an
enemy's ship Is captured or when tho os8eI
destroyed was a warship. There Is no law au
thorizing bounty to bo paid where n merchant
vessel Is destroyed. There Is nchnuce, how
ever, that tho Hawk's men will get somo prluo
money, ns It 1b reiortod that tho Alfonso XII,
was u regularly nrinorcd yowl of the Spanish
auxiliary navy. If this can bo proved n bounty
will probably bo paid. The opinion ntfocts tho
notable destruction of tho Santo Domingo, a
Spanish merchant liner, by the gunboat Eagle,

tion of several other merchantmen at Manza

The Government Won't Allow Them to Be
Sent Abroad for Fenr of the Effect on Spain.
Washington. Aug. 4. Tho publication ot tho
letters addressed to Gen. Shatter by tho divi
sion and brigade commanders of tho Fifth
Army Corps and by Col. Roosevelt has caused
moro important and significant action than tho
robuko to Ocn. Shatter for making the com
munications public. President McKlnloy and
Seorotnry Algor woro Indignant not only on
account of the poor judgment of tho 'com
mander of tho Fifth Corps in permitting such
startling Intelligence to go to tho newspapers
in America, but on account of the effeot It
might have on the Spanish Government
In Its consideration of tho demands made by
the United States In tho noto concerning
Spain's peace overtures. Much anxiety was
expressed In official circles to-day that tho
lottors nbout tho sanitary conditions nt Santi
ago would bo cabled abroad and be brought to
tho attention ot the Spanish Government. It
was said by a prominent official that Spain
might see In tho communications reason why
sho could safely decline to nccede totho Ameri
can forms, as tho letters addressed to Gen.
, Shatter showod a condition among tho Ameri
can troops in and around Santiago that wns
favorable to a continuance of tho war by Spain,
with practically all the Unltod States land
forces wasted by sickness nnd unablo to make
an offenslro or defensive campaign.
In order to prevent tho publication of the two
letters abroad, the censorship over press de
spatches to nowspapers outsido ot tho United
States was reestablished to-day by direction ot
tho War Department. It is hot known posi
tively here, outside of official circles, whether
tho censorship applies to all press despatches
relating to the war or only to the communica
tions mado publla by Gen. Shatter, but the
understanding is that the Shatter totters alono
nro afTcctcd. Tho oensorshlp on press matter
addressed to newspapers In foreign countries
was rigidly enforced during and prior to tho
Santiago campaign, but was removed after the
urrendor of Gen. Torn!.

Long Island Bnllrond's Arrangements.
Somebody in tho War Department at Wash
ington called up somebody In tho Army Build
ing hero on tho tolcphono about 4 o'clock
yesterday afternoon, and tho following bulletin
wus transmitted:
"Hello, thoro 1 All Shatter's army has been
ordered to get out of Cuba and go to Montuuk
Point, P. D. Q."
This unofficial announcement was tho first
Information that any of tho army officers horo
had that Gen. Shaftor was to get up out of Cuba
on such short notice. I.lout. -Col. J. Morris
Brown, Surgeon, U. B. A., In ehargo of tho med
ical supply depot hero, when ho heard tho news,
" Well, If Shatter's coming P. D. Q. It will bo
necessary for Bomo of us at this end to get a
movo on, at least. D. Q."
Whllo every ono was speculating on un
official nows. Col. Amos 8. Kimball. Doputy
Quartermaster-General, received official notlfl
cation from tho (juartormcstor-General that
tho entire Fifth Corps, comprising the officers
and men under Major-Ocn, Shaftor, had beou
ordered to cvaouato Santiago, and proceed to
Montauk Point as speedily as posslblo, Tho
official notification carried with It tho Informa
tion that tho troops would como north as soon
as transports could bo provided, and that ono
shipload had already startod. It was stated
that tho whole command would be on the way
within six days.
Tho War Department officials In Washington
may think nil of Shaffer's troops will bo got out
of Santiago within six days, but nobody hero
thinks so. If tho Inst dotaohment starts north
by tho end of threo weeks tho movement wilt
hnvo been made moro quickly than most move
ments connected with the Santiago campaign.
The foroo under Gen. Shaftor numbers at pres
ent about 18,000 men. Ot this number ovor
4,000 are sick. Tho War Department has
enough transports at Santiago, Porto Btco and
Port Tampa to bring up tho entire command.
It will be necessary, however, to have all the
transports rendezvous at Santiago.
To accommodate the troops whon they reach
Montauk Point, all tho tentago now In Govern
ment storehouses horo. at Philadelphia, at fit.
Louis, nnd at Chicago has beon ordorod to the
now camp at once. Forty ambulances now nt
Governors Island have been ordered to bo sent
there. Largo hospitals for each division of tho
command will bo set up and a complete mod
lea! and Biirglcal outfit will bo provided
foroach. Tboworkof equipping tho hospitals
will bo in chnrgoof Col. William II, Forwood,
medical director of the Soldiers' Homo at Wash
ington, Col. Forwood returned to New York
yesterday from Plattsburg. whero he had been
with others to Inspect a site for u genernlflold
hospital for tho army, He will begin his work
on tho Montauk Point hospitals to-day.
To furnish proper accommodations for 4,000
or 15,000 sick soldiers will entail an immenso
amount of work, Col. Forwood wishes It Un
derstood, however, thnt ho will havo proper ac
commodations or ho won't havo any. Llout.
Col. Brown will provide tho supplies that Col.
Forwood needs. It Is thought now that ut least
5,000 beds, with boddlng and bod linen, will
hnvo to bo provldod, and this moans n requisi
tion for 1,000 hospital tents, as each hospital
tent Is Intended to hold flvo beds comfortably.
The services of between 100 and SOO nurses
will bo required nnd about halt as mnny physi
cians and surgeons as nurses. Then, too, a
largo hospital corps will be. required, It Is
taken (or granted, howovor, that Shatter's
army has a fairly well equipped hospital corps.
However, this branch of tho hervlce Is weak,
according to Major Nathan S. Jnrvls. Surgnoii,
U. S, V who has chnrgo of the Hospital Corps
recruiting office In tho Army building, and if
any ablebodlod mon hereabouts, having a
knowledge ot drugs and medicines, as well at

For about 13,000 or 14.000 woll soldlors

coivod any orders forgetting tho rations ready
yet. But ho knows that tho rations will bo

Tho 'transportation of supplies ot nil kinds

nlBO supply now under nnd outor clothing,
shoos and hats and bluo Bblrts for tho troops.
Col. Kimball Is ready to carry out his part ot
tha programmo on ten minutes' notice. Ho
had officials ot tho Long Island Railroad in
consultation with him In loss than halt an hour
after ho was notified of tho coming of Shatter's
Aftor tho conforonco onoof tho officials stated
that tho Long Island road had agreed to carry
all Government freight from Long Island City
to Montauk Point nt 25 per cont. undor tariff
rates, providing tho Government did not put
on a lino of freight steamers botween Now York
nnd tho camp. Tho read also agrees to trans
port all troops, from ono soldier up, ovor its
lino for n cent n mile a man.
At present thoro aro no ptor faollltles at Mon
tauk for largo vessels. There Is a small pier at
Fort Pond Bay that has bcon used for fishing
smacks. Col, Kimball has suggested to tho
WarDopartmontthat.lt no other means aro
provldod, lighters be ready nt tho landing
placo and that the transports bo sent directly
to tho Point, instead of unloading horo. A largo
pier will bo built thoro. but It Is doubtful If this
can be complotod In tlmo to bo usod for disem
barking tho troops.
Col. Kimball has a considerable amount of
clothing on hand, and thoro is still moro that
ho may call for at tho Philadelphia dopot. It
occurred to him yostorday afternoon, howovor,
that somo of tho troops, or all ot them, might
bo held nt Montauk Point until cold weather.
Tho doctors sav that it takos two or throo hard
frosts to drtvo malaria out ot the system. Upon

heard of tho coming of Shaffer ho sent out
notices to tho successful bidders. Tho ovor
coats ore to bo delivered by Bcpt. 15. nnd. In
each case. If' the whole number nwnrded to
each bidder Is not delivered by that time, for

was a husband
worthy of the name, who did not aspire
to be the father and the grandfather of
healthy, capuble children to hand down
his name and the fortune accumulated by
the sweat of his brow, from generation to
generation. There never was a wife fit to
bear that noble title, who did not wish to
wear womanhood's most glorious crown,
the sceptre of motherhood, Thousands
of wedded couples, otherwise happy, fall
short of wedlock's greatest happiness be
cause they arc childless, In the majority
of cases, this Is because the wife, through
ignorance or neglect, suffers from weak
ness and disease of the organs distinctly
feminine. For women who sufler in this
way there is one great medicine that does
not fail to accomplish its purpose. It is
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. It acts
directly on the delicate organs concerned
and makes them strong, healthv, vigorous,
virile and clastic. It allays inflammation,
heals ulceration, soothes pain and tones
the shattered nerves. It fits for wifehood
and motherhood. It quickens and vitalizes
the distinctly feminine organism. It ban
ishes the maladies of the expectant months
and makes baby's introduction to the world
easy and almost painless. It insures the
little new-comer's health and nourishment
in plenty. It is the best supportive tonic
for nursing mothers.
Mrs. Jennie Parks, of Marshall, Spokane Co.,
Wash., writes: ' I nra glad to tell of the good
results of your irreat medicine. Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Preacripuou. I waa benefited by your
medicine in confinement, It gives me strength.
I have no tired feeling and my baby is the
picture of health, I fee) better than I have lo
leu years.'' (
In.cate of constipation Dr. Pierce's
Pleasant Pellets should be used as an
adjunct to the "Favorite Prescription,"
they are extremely simple, perfectly natural
sd insure prompt and permanent relief.
