Shafter is operating there under writ
ten instructions from tho secretary of
war, approved by tho presldont, and as

A prominent official of tho war do

neither tho administration nor General
Miles hud any dehho to detract an iota
from tho credit duo to Goneral Shafter
for the plans by which he hopes to
achieve a victory nt Santiago.
Tho notably fast run made by tho
cruiser Yalo from Charleston to Santi

My plans for tomorrow are to keep up
