The War Department Will Keep
Its Plans Secret
Washington April 30 The War
Department is very seriously con
cerned over the publication in some
of the morning papers of its inten
tion to select Gen Shafter to com
mand the first detachment of troops
to be sent to Cuba To prevent dny
further disclosure of the plans of
the department Secretary Alger
this morning issued a most sweep
ing order directed to all bureau
chiefs of the War Department and
all officers on special duty from the
highest to the lowest instructing
them under no circumstances to
give any information to the press
on any subject connected with the
war While this seems to work a
hardship upon the newspapers that
feel compelled to aid rather than
obstruct the Government in its cam
paign it is said to be necessary to
meet the present conditions The
same state of affairs exists in the
