From Utnllk and lautlago Considered at
the War Dopartmeut
WASHINGTON, Aug. 18.?Dispatches
of Importance were received and considered.at
the war department early today.
Immediately after the arrival of
Secretary Alger at the war department
he had a consultation with General Corbin
and denied himself to visitors. The
conference was a protracted one. They
were considering dispatches received
from General Merrltt and from Santiago.
It Is understood that General Merrltt's
dispatches were r.ot of a disquiet
ing nature, although the condition*! to
be faced in the Philippines are giving
the department considerable concern.
The conditions at Santiago are causing
a great deal of uneasiness and It is
believed that more troops will ordered
there very ffoon. Already orders
have been Issued directlngheFlfth regu

irt Walker. Roproduced from Harper's
lar Infantry now at Tampa, to proceed I
at once to Santiago. Inquiries have |
been made au to the condition of the immune
regiments which have not yet sailed
with a view of sending thorn to Santiago.
The government intends to take
vigorous measures to preserve'the peace
and keep order in Santiago and the territory
under United States control. The
emphatic order Issued to General Lawton
a few days ago will be followed by
orders sending sufficient disciplined
troops to enable him to carry out the Instructions
of the secretary.
As ji further step In this direction, the
President* to-day directed that the
Twenty-third Kansas regiment, colored.
be dlapatched t?? Santiago, to form part
of tho army of occupation of Cuba. T^e
Kuneann liinl tendered their iiervlroH for
this purpose and had ur#ced acceptancc
