SUPPLIES FOR G A RCIA'
NEARLY 400 MEN. ARMS AND AMUNI TION LANDED IN CUBA. Seven Thousand Rifles, Two Million Rounds of Ammunition, Seventy-Ave Mules and Twenty-live Horses Curried to the Insurgents. f Key West, Fla., June L—The Plant' line steamer Florida returned here yes terday from Cuba, having successfully j landed there an Important expedition.' The Florida has been quarantined, but Is expected to be released soon. She ! landed her party about 25 miles east j of Havana and not a shot was tired.' Senor Polo, the local delegate of the' Cuban Junta, has official information that the expedition was successful in accomplishing its object. ! The expedition was landed on the coast of Cuba last Thursday morning, i When the Florida, escorted by the Os I ceola, drew up close to the shore at | the place selected for the lauding, she ! out scouts ashore to see wbethel I all was clear. The scouts were greeted J by Generals Ferla and Roja.', with! about 1,500 armed insurgents. Conse quently, far from there being sny hos tile demonstration upon the part of the Spanish, 'the landing was in tiie nature ' of a triumphal Invasion. The Cubans J who were in waiting for the party had j a hand and welcomed the newcomers with national airs. Ihilouiltng tile Cargo. The work of unloading the cargo of the Florida was promptly begun and carried on by 432 men composing the expedition. There was no Interruption, a d tho work was finished on Friday U'sht. While the cargo was being un loaded the Osceola, which is an auxili ary gunboat, with her guns ready for j a Uon, scoutec about the vicinity, look- j ing for an enemy. But the Spaniards apparently had no suspicion of what j was taking place, for not a sign of. them could be seen ashore or afloat. > So easily was the dangerous mission! accomplished that while some members | of the party were getting the supplies j ashore, others were providing them selves with fruit, sugar and other pro- j duets of the landing place, a large i stock of which was brought back foi I Key West friends. Nevertheless, no precautionary meas ure was neglected, and the moment the work was concluded the Florida and I the Osceola slipped away, leaving the j Insurgents to convey their reinforce- > ments and supplies Into the interior, I which, ii is confld. .ttly believed, was j done without mt.' casualty. The re-, turning members of th Florida party 1 brought with them several hundred! private letters,, which, it is understood, give a compl-te Inrighl info the pres ent conditions prevailing in the blork- i aded island. The local Cuban colony is j elated over the astonishing success of the expedition. A Sinma Kxpedl'lon, Nearly 400 men. with a pack train and a large qvantity of arms and am munition, sailed on the Florida, on the night of May it. These men and the equipment constituted rn expedition able to operate Independently and to defend Itself against any body of Span ish troops which might oppose it. The expedition was under the command of Colonel Jose Lacret, formerly insurgent commander in Matanzas province. He assumed the direction of affairs imme diately on the landing of the expedi tion. Until then General Joaquin Cas tillo was in control. In the landing of the expedition the; United States army was represented by Captain J. H. Dorst; and Thomas Estrada Palma was represented on the Florida by J. E. Cartaya, who has been the landing agent of nearly every filibustering expedition for more than a year. Messrs. Castillo, Cartaya and Dorst will return to Key West. Gen eral Julio Sanquilly, on the way to re port to General Maximo Gomez, was also on the boat. Culiuna unci Americans. This is the most powerful anti-Span ish expedition ever sent to Cuba. About 300 of the men are Cubans. The oth ers are Americans. The engineer corps of the expediflon is composed entirely of Americans, under Aurelian Ladd. and includes experts in explosives. Three of the four physicians with the party are Americans. The men were dressed in canvas uniforms furnished by the United States government, and the commissary department had ra tions enough to last fifteen days after the landing. The pack train consisted seventy-five mules and twenty-five horses. The expedition carried 7,000 ri fles and 2,000,00) rounds of ammunition for General Calixto Garcia. General Castillo, General Sanguilly and Colonel Lacret are fine looking men, and the expedition is composed of hardy young fellows who looked fit for anything. Dinin : Pl )* Under Civil Service !,w.

WHY PORTO RICO IS WANTED. Fears That Spain Hack Down liefor. Wo <;t the Island. M .."blngten, June 3. —There seems tc be little doubt that the first plnn ot campaign contemplates the reduction of Porto Rico and the president is be ing strongly urged to begin this move ment before any serious attempt h made upon Havana. His advisers poinl to what they regard as the danger of a retreat on the part of the Spanish gov ernment. It might be possible, it is thought, for the Spanish to assert that they accept in fidl tin- demands of this govern ment's ultimatum and withdraw their troops from Cuba. In such case the I'nlteil States would be placed in the disagreeable position of continuing tr trnke war upon the country which holds out the flag of truce. The di lemma that would confront us in such care would he how to secure Porte Rico without offending against inter national law, for it can be safely ac cepted as the truth that the adminis tration is determined that Spanish rule in the western hemisphere shall cease. Now that General Miles has gone it -an be stated that for the last live days he has held frequent conferences with a prominent Porto Rlean, thoroughly conversant with the situation in that island and able to give exact informa tion as to the Spanish strength, de fences, etc., there.

We have enlisted all of the men we need. And I wish to say right here that they are as fine a body of young men as 1 have ever seen. I am well pleased with them. In phy sique and general intelligence they are far above the average. They have evinced a willingness and eagerness to learn their duties that will help me wonderfully." To Signal \wi of Fleets.

Washington, June L-The cabinet has discussed the situation at Santiago and the coming invasion of Porto ltlco and Santiago. lioili the secretary of the navy and the secretary of war were reticent in regard to the exact move ments of the army and navy, hut they acknowledged that before the week ended Important developments would occur, und that there would be no fur ther delay in regard to the campaign in the West Indies. The actual embarkation of troops be gan late yesterday afternoon, accord ing to positive information at the war department. It is not permissible to state the point of departure, and it will be probably a day or two before the expedition actually sails. l'orio lltco to Ho Invaded. It is the general belief in Washing ton that the real point of invasion at this time is Porto Rico—and there is doubt whether iroops will be landed at Santiago before or after the attack on Porto Rico. There are obvious reu sons for not resolving this doubt, and the only thing that can be stated posi tively without impropriety is that both the Porto Rican and the Santiago ex peditions will precede the general in vasion of Cuba. While it may be true that a number of troops will be landed at Santiago to assist Commodore Schley, in his attack on the Spanish fleet and the city, it is the opinion of the administration that 110 lime must be lost in seizing and holding Porto llico. T.ie most signifi cant news from the South, in the opin ion of the army officers here, is the an nouncement that General Lee has gone to Jacksonville, on the east coast of Florida, to establish headquarters there, nut one Inference can be drawn from this movement, namely, that Jacksonville is to be made a base of operations against Porto rtico. The town is admirably situated for this purpose; in fact it far surpasses Key West as a base for operations even against any of the eastern points of Cuba. The terminus of an excellent railroad system leading from the North and West, with good steamboat con nection with New York, with a naviga ble river, affording'a good harbor, and distant only 1,200 miles from San Juan in an air lino. Jacksonville leaves little to he desired as a base of military op erations. There seems to be little doubt that the plan of campaign contemplates the reduction of Porto Rico. Cvii. Miles'* Plans. The departure of General Miles does not mean that he Is going to command in person the army bound either for Santiago or fan Juan, but that, as stated in these dispatches last week, he is to organize the expeditions to Por to Rico and Santiago, so as to know exactly what the army needs and pre pare for the greater invasion of Cuba. The preparations for the occupation of Santiago and Porto nearing completion, and the division for San tiago, which will be under General Shatter, lias been selected. Its equip ment Is complete, and It Is not thought there will be any delay fn starting. General Miles will reach Tampa to day, where he will confer with General Shafter regarding his campaign, and give him his final Instructions. Gen eral Brooke will have command Qf the Porto Kican expedition, and General Lee will go with him,, starting from Jacksonville. General Mlles's plans are, as stated, to inspect the Santiago com mand and make his report to the presi dent, nfter which he will turn his at tention to the Porto Rlcan troops. Af ter these expeditions have been started he will devote his entire attention to thoroughly organizing and quipping the army for the general Cuban Invasion. TO BUILD SHIPS FOR RUSSIA. The Crainp'n of Philadelphia Get a $13,- 000,000 Contract. Philadelphia, June I.—From a trust worthy source It was learned to-day that when Charles H. Cramp was In Russia he secured from the czar's gov ernment contracts for $10,U00,000 for the construction of warships by the William Cramp & Sons' ship and en gine building works in this city.
