TO BE SENT HOME f sictjbjsd ros the MrAJOMK FBISONEBS A SPANISH COMPANY WINS Awaited tha Contract for Transport*- Tim* Will Ba Lost In •ending- Then Away *—elate* Praia Special Wlra WASHINGTON, July 20.-Arrangements ' practically ware concluded by the govern ment tonight for the transportation of the Spanish prisoners at Santiago from Cuba to Spain, Tha contract was awarded to the Span tsh Transatlantlque company, represented . by J. If. Ceballos & Co. of New York. The company agrees to carry tha prisoners from Cuban porta to Spain at the rate of tS) for each enlisted man and 155 for each commissioned officer, subsistence to be furnished by the company on the army ra tion basis, as provided for in the govern ment's advertisement for bids. Ths award provides also that the com _pany shall have five ships at Santiago in nine daya from tomorrow (the 21st Instant) . two In seventeen days from tomorrow ' and enough to complete the transportation of tha prisoners in twenty-one days from tomorrow. .. Two days ago Colonel Hecker, in charge of the transportation of troops in the quar termaster general's department ot the amy, went to New York to consult with ■hipping companies concerning the trans portation of the Spanish troops surren dered at Santiago. Bids which he had previously advertised for were opened at the army building in New York today. Colonel Hecker returned to Washington this evening. Tonight he had a confer once at the war department with Secre tary Alger, Quartermaster General Lud . Ington and Adjutant General Corbin. The blda of the several companies were con , aide red. that of the Spanish Transatlan ttque company Anally being- accepted, aa tn all respects It was regarded as the best made. On the basis ot 24,000 enlisted men . and 1000 officers. It will cost the govern ment |535,000 to transport the prisoners. The ships will fly the colors of Spain and will be manned, probably entirely by Span ish crews. It waa remarked tonight aa ems of the curious developments of the war that the United States government should anted Into a friendly oontract with a com pany, many of whose vessels are auxil iaries to the Spanish navy, and some of whioh have been captured or destroyed by the navy of the United States. Troublesome Prisoners WASHINGTON. July JO.—The Immunes are wanted by General Shafter to serve as -military guard* of Santiago proper, obvi ating the necessity of retaining within the ■one of infection any of the men who con stitute hla army. Tha situation at Guantanamo among the Spanish troops surrendered is calculated In some measure to disturb the depart ment's plan for the shipment of these sol diers back to Spain. The department is under obligations not to place aboard steamships to be used for conveyance of tbe troops any soldiers having yellow fever, so it will probably be necessary to place the surrendered camp under very rigid sanitary rules and then sift out care fully all persona showing the faintest symptoms of disease. When the others nave been isolated for a sufficient time, ' thus making sure that they have not con tracted the fever, they will be ready to go aboard ship, but it can be readily seen that ' the adoption of these precautions Involve j considerable delay In the return of the Spanish troops to Spain, and it la doubtful If this move can be made within a month. This delay Is unfortunate, In view of the possibility of trouble ensuing from the " presence of the two armies, as well as the " Cubans at Santiago, but as the Spanish officers have been, or will be, paroled. It Is presumed they will use their influence among the enlisted men to prevent any friction. Secretary Alger has cabled to General Shafter directing him to cause to be pre pared at the earliest possible moment a complete list of the American soldiers suf fering from yellow fever, as well as those who have lost their lives from that dls ease. This then will be telegraphed to tha War Department, and It is expected wilt serve to allay the suspense of the relatives and friends of our soldiers. It is believed that the naval contingent Of the Porto Rican expedition, composed of ironclads, which are to make the at tack upon the San Juan fortifications, started last night from the base of Santi ago directly for San Juan. The Navy De i partment, however, declines as yet to re scind its rule regarding the disclosure of Information relative to the movement of the naval vessels. 1 News came to the Navy Department to day from Gibraltar that three Spanish transatlantic steamships had taken refuge In that neutral port, having learned that ' Commodore Watson's squadron had ap peared off Cadiz. As a matter of fact Com ! modore Watson has not yet started, and It Is not believed that any concealment will be made of his movements when he does ■tart. Word has come to the department that the Spaniards in Porto Rico have sue ' ceeded in landing from the wreck of the Steamer Lopez nearly all the cargo car ' rled by that ship when she was run ashore and set on Are by one of the American 1 cruisers. The Lopes was loaded with sup plies and was about to run the blockade ' into San Juan when she was cornered. It was hoped tha fire had destroyed her ' cargo. The State Department has decided that It Is not necessary to give formal notice to the world of the abandonment of the | blockade at Santiago. The capture of the Sawn is supposed to be sufficient notice to "» seat/body concerned.

Germany Friendly WASHINGTON, July 20.—Further in quire* by the Associated Press today in official quarters as to the alleged complica tions between the United States and Ger many in the Philippines failed to elicit anything that might serve as a foundation for tha reports of such complications. On the contrary, it is learned that there have been recent communications between the two governments of a decidedly friend ly nature, and at no time since the war be gan haa there been greater reason than now existing for confidence in Germany's neu trality In the war between the United States and Spain. Reports of misunder standings in the Philippines or elsewhere should not be too readily assumed as a basis of inference of national unfriendli ness. Indeed, it la believed to be the desire, as it is also the Interest of both govern ments that the relations of traditional friendship between them should continue unbroken. BRIGADIER GENERAL CHAMBERS M'KIBBIN LOS ANGELES HERALD* THURSDAY MORNING, JULY 21. 1898 ARMING THE TROOPS THIRTY THOUSAND RECEIVE THEIR SOUNDS Over a Million Cartridges to Be Dis tributed, Exclusive of Shells for the Artillery CHICKAMAUGA, Chattanooga Nation al Park, Ga., July 20.—The plans for an Im portant movement of troops from Camp Thomas to Porto Rico are progressing. It was learned from excellent authority this evening that It Is the earnest desire of Gen. Brooke that the entire First corps form the expeditionary foroe going from here. This would mean a departure from Chlckamauga of about 30,000 volunteers. Col. Rockwell handed out for dletribution In the First and Second divisions of the First corps this afternoon 800,000 rounds of ball cartridges. The artillery brigade received a large quantity of equipage. A large quantity of ordnance stores was forwarded from Camp Thomas yesterday for the Third Wiscon sin at Charleston. Several hundred thousands of ammuni tion arrived tonight and will be distributed at once. FRANCE AND HAYTI Prospects of Serious Trouble Between the Governments PORT AU PRINCE, Haytl, July 20.—1t is rumored here that some friction Is likely to arise between France arj4 the Haytten republic. In spite of the remonstrance* and urgent demands of the French minis ter, the Haytien government still refuses to abrogate the recent decree of expulsion Issued against Mme. Hermanle, a French subject, who was expelled as a person dan gerous to public security shortly after her notorious collision in. the cathedral with Mme. Simon Sam, wife of the president. The government Is much irritated by cer tain articles damaging to Haytl that have recently appeared in the Matin, the Libre Parole, the Autorlte and other Parisian journals. At the dinner given by the president at the palace today to the members of the diplomatic corps, the only foreign repre sentative absent was the French minister. The relations between the two govern ments are evidently much strain J. CHINESE EXCLUSION ACT Assistant Secretary Howell Issues a New Ruling WASHINGTON, July 20.—Assistant Sec retary Howell of the Treasury Department made a ruling- In regard to the admission Into the United States of Chinese persons, which is more comprehensive In Its re strictions than any hitherto mad* slnee the passage of the Chinese Exclusion act. This action was In accordance with an opinion of the Attorney-General, who holds in effect that the exclusion applies to all classes of Chinese persons other than those specifically named In the act. The only exceptions therefore are: Officials, teach ers, students, merchant* or travelers tor curiosity or pleasure. It Is estimated that the number of persons hitherto admitted but hereafter excluded will aggregate several thousand a year. The following letter of instructions based upon the At torney-General's opinion has been sent to the Collector of Customs at San Francisco: WASHINGTON, July 80, 1898. Collector of Customs, San Francisco- Sir—Referring to your communication of the 14th ultimo in relation to the appeal from your decision rejecting the applica tion of Wong Yook Foo, a Chinese person, seeking admission to this country, and con firming the telegram sent to you on the 19th Instant, you are Informed that In an opinion, dated the 15th Instant, the Honor able the Attorney-General, holds that Chinese persons known as "trades." should not be allowed to land In this country, even though they submit the certificate pre scribed by the act approved July sth, 1884, relating to the admission of Chinese. I enclose herewith for your information a copy of the opinion of the Attorney-Gen eral and invite your particular attention to that portion of it in which he says: "It may be stated comprehensively that the result of the whole body of these laws and decisions thereon is to determine that the true theory Is not that all Chinese per sons may enter this country who are not forbidden, but that only those are entitled to enter who are expressly allowed." You are therefore directed to hereafter refuse admission to all Chinese persons whose occupation or station does not clear ly Indicate that they are members of tho exempt class of Chinese as denned by the law, and applications for admission for persona described as salesmen, clerks, buyers, bookkeepers, accountants, man-. agers, store keepers, apprentices, agents, cashiers, physicians, proprietors of res taurants, etc., should be rejected by you. Respectfully yours; W. B. HOWELL, As**t Bee.

' THE PHILIPPINES DISPOSITION OF THE ISLANDS IS AGITATING EUROPE England Wants America to Retain Control—France, Germany- and Austria Hay Object NEW YORK, July 20.—The London cor respondent ot the Tribune writing under date ot July 6 says: There Is no reason to doubt that nearly all the Influential leaders In English public life are hoping that the Americans will re tain control of the Philippines after the close of the war with Spain. They don't profess to be disinterested in their advice, nor to look at the question from an Ameri can point of view. They frankly admit that the occupation of the Philippines by either France, Germany or Great Britain will sub ject the relations of European powers to a dangerous strain, and they favor perma nent American control of the group in the Interest ot peace. They are also sensible of the great advantage which England would derive from the moral and diplomatic support of the United States in all ques tions relating to China and the Far East, If the American flag were raised at Manila for all time. As Englishmen with practical instincts, and influenced by consideration! of enlightened self-interest, they are out spoken and emphatic in expressing their hope that America will enlarge her sphere of activity In the world's diplomacy and work. Lord Kimberly has been at the head of the foreign office and is one of the most cautious and sagacious leaders of the Lib eral party. The speech which he made at the American dinner this week wn« of great significance and has been widely discussed here. He said in part: "Common language, although a very strong bond between peoples, Is not the strongest bond. A far stronger one is a community of Interests. Interests of the two peoples run largely on the same lines, and they could look forward to a friendship which may be enduring and for the benefit of both countries. The United States will be at the parting of the ways, and the time has come when the American people will take a larger Interest In what goes on In other parts of the world." He believed that If they should so extend their Interests in other parts of the world it would be a signal advantage to the Eng lish people, because although that people thought they were strong and could stand a lot, yet it could not be a matter of In difference to them that a sister nation was coming to stand by their tide. Once the ' two peoples had parted In anger, they had now returned to friendship. He hopes that that friendship may be long and enduring. Not a word was about the Philippines, but the context involves the application. Where the English speak of the extension of the American interest "to other parts of the world" they do not refer to the Spanish West Indies, which are geographically close to the United States. Their thoughts are centered upon the Philippines and China, where they ardently desire to see "a sister nation stand by their side." Lord Kimberley, with less reserve than one would have expected from a former For eign Secretary, frankly confessed that American co-operation In that quarter would be a signal advantage to the Eng lish people. This Is also the view of Blr Wm. Har court, Mr. Asqutth, Mr. Arnold Morley, Sir Charles Dllko and other leaders on the Liberal side. There are two Liberal leaders who are sufficiently broadmlnded to reflect seriously and deliberately upon the consequences of a new colonial and Im perial policy so far as Americans them selves are concerned. John Morley, one cf the most sincere and disinterested friends of American Institutions to be found in England, will probably regret the entrance of the United States upon a career of foreign expansion as a dangerous experiment, which may interfere with the real Interests of American civilization. Another friend of everything American is Jas. Bryce, who has not hesitated to ex press his distrust and apprehension of the tendencies toward colonization and enlarge ment of empire, and to forecast grave changes in the constitution as inevitable if these new policies are adopted. On the Unionist side there is no mora outspoken advocate than Mr. Chamberlain ol an American policy of action in the Phil ippines. Lord Salisbury not only represents the old school ot British diplomacy based upon conservatism, prudence and sobriety of Judgment, but he is also a silent states man who guards Jealously his own secrets. Mr. Arthur Balfour knows the Prime Min ister's mind respecting the American pol icy in the Philippines, if anyone does, and there is no other Englishman who Is more enthusiastic respecting the possibility of a common basis of action in the Far East for England and America. Every Unionist hopes that the Americans wUI retain the Islands. Forwards and moderates stand together on this question. With the great parties practically united In Parliament for American occupation ot the Island, tha opinion In the clubs of the c'.ty and in the press is running strongly In one direction American residents wherever they f hear the expression of English hope r , expectation that the United States w... not withdraw from the Philippines. Vermont Democrats BURLINGTON, Vt., July 20.—The Demo cratic State convention was held here today and the following ticket was nominated: Governor, Thomas W. Maloney. Lieutenant-Governor, A. N. Olmstead. Treasurer, L. Clough. Secretary of State, George O. Davles. Auditor, Richard D. Preble. The resolutions adopted endorsed the platform of the Chicago convention of IS9S and a tariff for revenue only; oppose the "proposed imperialistic policy of the Re publican party," and the admission of the Hawaiian Islands to Statehood, and ex press "undiminished admiration of and con fidence in William J. Bryan." Tardy Recognition WASHINGTON, July 20.— J. A. Camp bell, who was General Sheridan's scout all through th* Civil War, has been appointed captain of volunteers and will be attached to the staff of General Brooke aa chief of scouts. He will accompany the General to Porto Rleo. It was of Captain Campbell that General Sheridan wrote this: "The people of the United States will perhaps never know of his lnestlmablo service* to his country." The Corbstt-McCoy Fight BUFFALO, N.

Thirty Thousand Men Sail for Porto Rioo WASHINGTON, July 30.—Secretary Al ger said tonight that he expected General Miles, one brigade of Infantry and some ar tillery would leave Cuba Immediately, un der convoy of a strong naval squadron for the Invasion of Porto Rico. He expressed the hope and belief that troope were al ready en route to Porto Rioo. Most ot them hud been on board the transports for sev eral days, and the situation was becoming trying for them. Secretary Alger said there had been' no delay in the embarkation of the troops, and that, so far as the war department and General Miles were concern«d, the expedi tion had been In readiness to proceed to Porto Rico for several days. Orders were sent today to Admiral Sampson to start at once with his fleet for the landing place In Porto Rico which has been determined upon by the authorities. No Information could be obtained at the war department tonight as to whether the fleet had actually sailed. Thirty Thousand Sail CHARLESTON, S. C, July 20.—With bands playing and 30,000 people cheering, the first expedition to follow General Miles to Porto Rico got away from here at 7 o'cloi* this evening. The expedition Is under command of Ma jor General J. H. Wilson, and will, when complete, consist of the Second and Third Wisconsin, the Sixteenth Pennsylvania regiments and two companies of the Sixth Illinois. The first two regiments are oa the transports Grand Duchess and No. SO respectively, and they are at sea. No. 11, carrying the Sixteenth Pennsylvania and the Illinois men, Is In the stream, and will sail early tomorrow morning. Each ot the ships carries a large quantity of supplies, and on the No. 21 there are 1000 head of mules and the wagon train of General Wil son's division. These men, together with those of the Sixth Illinois and Sixth Massa chusetts, which sailed from here last week for Santiago, constitute the First brigade of the First division of the First army corps. For two daya and nights the work of load ing baggage and provisions on the trans ports has been going forward under rush orders. AU the stevedores in theicity were employed at it. They were assisted by de tails of men from the various regiments and tbe 600 negro laborers employed here by Sic SECOND EXPEDITION + HONG KONK, July 20.—(Special to Ths Herald.)

Tha scan* which accompanied the departure of ths vessels from their docks was one of Indes cribable enthusiasm. Practically the en tire population of the city was In evidence. As the vessels made the stream, the bands on shipboard and ashore played national airs, and the thousands of people cheered like mad. The expedition will sail directly for Porto Rico. NEW YORK, July 20.—Orders were re oelved today by the quartermaster's de partment for the Massachusetts, Roumn nla and Michigan to sail at once, whether their supples were on board or not. They will leave tomorrow. The Roumanla and Massachusetts will go to Newport News and the Miohlgan to Port Tampa. WASHINGTON, July 2S.—The arrange ments tor the departure of the Porto Rican expedition continue today with vigor. Tb* transports loading at Tampa are leaving aa fast as practicable. There Is no definite Information at the department, however, showing just what regiments have sailed. The recommendations of Gen. Brooke, in dicating what regiments he prefers for Porto Rico, other than those whose selec tions have already been definitely an nounced, have not been made publlo at the war department. The reports which come from Quarter master Humphreys indicate that it will be a comparatively easy taak to supply the army In and about Santiago with subsist ence stores in marked contrast with tha almost superhuman efforts necessary while the siege of the city was In progress. There are good wharves and ample storehouses in the vicinity and the department haa four good tugs and excellent lighters for trans portation purposes where these are neces sary. THE ENGLISH CARLISTS Only Waiting for an Opportunity to Strike LONDON, July 20.—The English Carllsts are most active and are In hourly expecta tion of momentous news. The leader ot the organisation here saysi "We are quite ready for active operations. Moreover there is no doubt the authorities at Madrid are aware that a Carlist rising la Imminent and that it will be successful. We are immensely strong in many parts of Spain, and ao soon as tbe truth of tha cowardly surrender of Santiago percolates, sur forces will be greatly increased. ! "The foreign enlistment act curtails our activity in England, and even since tbe Madrid government bsgan to get into dif ficulties we hay* been shadowed day and night by spies and detectives. However, we have money, which la sorely needed Ist Spain." Wagon Factory Burned CHATTANOOGA, Term., July 10.—The Mlllburn-Baas Wagon factory was burned here tonight. The loss Is 1128,000.
