Col. Alston has received orders to
equip his Regiment and report to (?en.

ness when the time comes to move.
Messrs. H. C. Daggctt, T. Page and
Millcdge Bonham were transferred

the Company.
Company C has been honored in the

It has raiued almost every day since

the dust and cooled the atmosphere
until it is e. pleasure to drill.
Our Regimental Band now compares
favorably with any band at Camp
Thomas, and tho musio it dispenses
each morning and evening is much
enjoyed by the men in camp.
Capt. H H. Watkins is ill with a
slight attack of malarial fever, but it
is hoped will soon recover.
Quartermaster Johnson has estab
lished a Company store at tho end of
our street, and has stocked it with
peanuts, syrup and other things to
sell to tho soldiers, thc profits to go
to the Company fund.
On Friday evening Lieut. Grant
commanded Company C at brigade
drill and acquitted himself with all
the skill and ease of a veteran com
mander, and the members of the Com
pany were complimented for the quick
ness and precision with which they
obeyed the commands.

Havana Not to be Attacked by Less
Than UH),(KM) Men.
WASHINGTON, June is.-The origi-1
nal plans of campaign for the conduct
of the war ngaiust Spain will bc ad
hered to, and will bo pushed with
vigor and energy. That dt cisi?n was
roached at a war council hold at the
White House to day, at which were
present President McKinley, Secre
taries Alger and Long, (Jen. Miles,
Assistant Secretary Meiklejohn, Ad
miral Sicurd and Capt. Malian. Of
course there will be some slight modi
fications made necessary by thc
changes that have occurred since the
beginning of hostilities, but these,
after all, will uot affect the general
plans of operations. Gen. Mile? re
turned from Florida with information
respecting the condition of troops,
difficulties to be expected in the pro
gress of tho change and needs in tho
matter of transportation facilities that
would be freely availed of to correct
the defects i ti thc present system as
has developed. Thc conference wa?
entirely harmonious. Thc ouly reason
that thc commanding general did not
visit the White Ilou?c yesterday waB
because of a desire ou thc President's
part that his war councillors should
have the benefit of Geu. Miles' recital
of hin observations at first hands.
The stories that there has been
friction between Ci cn. Miles and his
official superiors aro pronounced to bc
absurd by all concerned, and to-day
proceedings gave ampio evidence of
the fact that the utmost harmooy
characterizes the relations between
thc Chief Kxocuiive and thc military
branch of the Government. There
were, of course, some differences of
opinion among thc persons present at
the war council, but them has been no
disposition in any quarter to resist for
an instant any concession which has
secured the approval of the Presi
The official declaration to the effect
that the campaign is to be pushed
with vigor does not necessarily mean
an immediate attack on Havana, al
though such advice bas been tendered.
It does mean that thc very best efforts
are to be put fourth to get the army
in conditiou where it can be used with
overwhelming effect at any point or
points at almost a moment's notice.
To this end the troops uow in camp
are to be thoroughly trained and
hardened, and when they leave the
United States their equipment will be
the best a soldier eau have, fit for any
season, wet or dry, cold or hot. With
such an army at command, numbering
no less than lUU.OUU, the fate of
Havana cannot long remain in doubt
when once this army is hurled upon it.
Meanwhile the smaller expedition
ary movements are to go forward un
interruptedly. When Santiago is
captured the trained regulars, who do
the work there will be pushed on to
Porto Rico. If all or most of them
are needed for this expedition then
the "provisional force," referred to
by Gen, Sh after in his orders, prob
ably will be dispatched immediately
from the United States to garrison the
town of Santiago and to relieve the reg
Probably knowledge of some such
intention has led to the rumor which
found free currency to-day, to the
affect that 4,ODO men from Gen. Gra
ham's camp had been ordered to pro
ceed immediately to reinforce Shafter
at Santiago, making the passage on
the big ocean liners Harvard and Vale,
late the. New York and PariB, which
are now in Hampton Roads.
As a matter of fact Secretary Alger
said this afternoon that he had as yet
given no orders for the sending of
troops away from Camp Alger, nor
had he ordered any extensive move
ment elsewhere. The rooms of Secre
tary Alger were th rouged to-day by
friends of the many candidates for
appointment from civil life as second
lieutenant in the army. There are to
be 200 of these appointments, aud it
was announced this afternoon that
they would be made public in the
newspapers Monday morning.
Straight From Gomez.
Nair YORK, June 18-Capt. Rafael
Conto of tho Cuban anny has arrived
at the headquarters of the Cuban jun
ta of this city with dispatches from
Gen. Gomez. He was accompanied by
a lieutenant of the army of liberation.
Capt. Conte and his companion left
Gomes in Las Villas. The general
theuhad'with him a body guard of only
60 men-a cavalry escort. There was
little, food in the region where Gomez
was making his headquarters, so he
did not mass any large number of men
there, but spread them over a large
extent of territory and directed their
movements from his headquarters.
He has all the necessary arrange
ments made fer thc concentration of
the troops'when the proper time comes,
but keeps them scattered and employ
ed in a guerrila warfare in the mean
time BO that they may find food.
The captain claims that Gomes can
concentrate 30,000 armed men in a
short time at any p lint whero it is de
sirable. There are several thousand
more men who aro attached to Gomez's
army, and are only waiting for arms
to be available for defensive or offen
sive operations. .
In a skirmish with guerillas about
three weeks ago Gomez was wounded
in tho left arm by a Mauser bullet.
The wound healed quickly, however, in
spite of the general's advanced age,
and when the? captain left headquar
ters the old chief was able to use his
arm as well aa before ho was hit.

A Stampede in Camp at Tampa.
WASHINGTON, June 10.-A special
to the Post from Tampa says: At 10
o'clock tonight 3,000 horses aud mules
broke from their corrals and stampeded
through the camps of Gen. Carpenter's
brigade. It was so dark and the
excitement was so great in the District
of Columbia camp that it was impos
sible to learn if any men were hurt.
The panic among the men was terrible.
Officers tried to get their companies
into line, but the army of wild horses
made that impossible. Many men
began shooting at the excited animals,
but this only excited them more. It
seems impossible to stop the stampede
tonight. The horses seemed to be
attracted by the tents, and they rush
ed through the brigade of three regi
ments and then back again, taking a
different course each time. They
have already destroyed many tents,
kitchen and camping paraphernalia.
It is not known what started the
animals on their wild rush. Taps had
just sounded in a.? the camps, and the
bands had played their good-nights.
The men were hardly asleep, wheo a
loud cracking, like the fire of a Gatling
gun, startled them. It was the break
ing down of the corral fence, a high
wooden affair. In the next moment
the excited and panting'horses rushed
into the New York camp, whioh was
nearest the break in the fence. The
rush sounded like a thunder storm.
The New York camp's sentinels began
to yell like mad men: "Call out the
guards !" "Cail out thc guards!"
The guard hurried out, but it was
useless, as the animals were then
rushing over everything in their path.
In half an hour the camps had been
stampeded several times, and there
seemed to be no hope of driving the
beasts away from tho beach. Forty
men were mounted by ll o'clock, and
they were able to check thc rush some
little, or, at least, to steer thc horses
from the camp.
Ready to Land.
WASHINGTON, June 20.-It is stated
officially that there is now no doubt
?.hat General Shafter's military expe
dition han arrived ?afely off Santiago
by this time.
It ia not admitted that advices to
thst effect have been received, but it
is presumed that the war officials
sp?ak from knowledge
According to the plans arranged for
the debarkation, the fleet of transports
is to lie in a safe place until Sampson
has cleared the way fov a landing.
The selection of thc landing place
has been left entirely to the judgment
of Admiral Sampson and General
Shafter. the military commandor, and
tho first business in order, upon the
arrival of the transport fleet off Santi
ago would be, it is said, a war council
between Admiral Sampson and some
of his naval captains on tho one hand
and Major General Shafter and nis
staff on the other, the. purpose being
to settle all the details of the debark
ation. Meanwhile the fleet of trans
ports would lay at ova at ?east ten
miles beyond the blockading squadron
in order to be entirely safe from attack
by Spanish torpedo boats.
A great deal depends on the point
selected for the landing. It was
thought that Aguadores, to the east of
Morro, about six or eight miles, would
be a likely landing in view of the faot
that it has a wharf, the property of an
iron oro company, which would be
extremely useful for landing tho heavy
supplies and ordnance of the sieg?
trains. It is reported now, however,
that this particular wharf has been
commended by Spanish bntterios
which have been so placed aa to giv?
an enfilading fire upon it. If this In
