SANTIAGO'S FALL UNCERTAIN Cabinet Ministers Maintain a Reti cence Concerning Reasonable Peace Conditions. Jf the Washington Govermment Restricts Itself to the Single Object or Cuban In prudence, Spain Is Willing for Peace Strict Censorship Is Put on the Tress News from Manila Reports Every thing Quiet Ilread Hiots In Spain. London, July 19. The Madrid corre spondent of The Times says: "The public hereN In a painful state of un certainty regarding Santiago. The American dispatches are contradictory, and there 1s almost no lnforamtlon from Spanish sources. It Is suggested that the delay Is du to the fact that the cabinet communicates with General Toral only through Captain General Dlanco, but this explanation is unsatis factory. "One thing Is tolerably certain, and It augurs 111 for the sieedy conclusion of peace. The cabinet at Washington seems more exacting about conditions than General Shafter. and this Is re garded as indicating anything but a conciliatory deposition on the part of President McKinley at a critkal mo ment, when a little generosity might turn the Fcale in favor of a peaceful solution and when the local negotia tions between tho two generals at San tiago might devel p It to brg:r n gotia tlons betwe.n the two governments. .MlnUter Are KHircnt.

If President McKinley restricts himself to that object, there will bp nj perlous dlfllculty In coming to an agree ment, because Spanish public opinion, ofllclal and unofficial, has come to rec ognize that Spanish rule In Cuba cannot be re-established. If, on the other hand, a war undertaken for the specific purpose of liberating Cuba devolveslnto a war of ruthless conquest and annexa tion, the Spanish government and peo ple will defend themselves to tha ut most. This seems to me at the present moment the dominant note of public opinion." Tress Under a Censorship. A special dispatch from Madrid says the appearance there Friday nlgrt of several newspapers with blank columns representing portions of new sup pressed by the censor caused a pensa tlon. The following day, however, Lieutenant General J. Chinchilla, mili tary governor of the city, -had inter views with the leading editors and managers, and discussed the situation, lie expressed a desire to apply the new regulations with the least possible rigor, but the result Is that a bitter feeling prevails and, as one effect of the cen sorship, the papers Insinuate that they, know more than they dare assert. El National suggests that the entire press should cease to appear until the censorship Is abolished.

A., Washington: I have the honor to announce that the American flas has been this instant, 12 o'clock nocn, hoisted over the house of the civil government In the city of Santiago. An Immense concourse of people present. A squadron of cavalry and a regiment of infantry presenting arms and band playing national airs. Light battery fired salute twenty-one guns. Perfect order is being main tained by municipal government. Dis tress is very great, but little sickness in town. Scarcely any yellow fever. A small gunboat and about 200 seamen left by Cervera have surrendered to me. Obstructions are being removed from mouth of harbor. Upon coming into the city I discovered a perfect en tanglement of defenses. Fighting as the Spaniards did the first day, It would have cost 5,000 lives to have taken It. Battalions of Spanish troops have been depositing arms since daylight in ar morv over which I have guard. Gen eral Toral formally surrendered the plaza and all stores at 9 a. m. "W .It. SHAFTER, "Major General." Washington, July 19. The' sweeping extent of the victory at Santiago and the complete success of the first mill tary expedition to foreign territory since the conquest of Mexico was never fully appreciated until Sunday. Gen eral Shafter's message., dispatched at noon from the heart of the fallen city. announced that the American flag was flying over the municipal buildings, with a squadron of American cavalry OUR NEW TERRITORY. Country surrendered Indicated by dark portion. and a regiment of infantry presenting arms, wni.e a oanu piayeci tne Amen can natlcnal airs and a light battery was filing the rat'.oral talute of twenty-one gui.s. This fiisiatch was re ceived Rt 4:30 in the afternoon. At last the tense strain of anxiety which had depressed the authorities, who werei unable to lanlh some linger Ing doubt that Spanish treachery might be disclosed at any fctage of tha vexa tious delay, was relieved. Even the few who had not been able to surpress grave doubts us to the wisdom of cer tain so-called "conditions" which had been granted to the Spanish command ct. changed their minds when they read of General Shafter's impressive convlc tlon that 5.000 good American lives would have been the cost of carrying the city by assault. Toral's Condition Were Ka3'. It appears that General Tc: mi's Insist ance upen the insertion cf several nK'asant-scundlng expressions In the formal terms of "capitulation" contcm plated no practical dlfadvantrge to the Americans, and that General Shafter by the exercise of diplomacy, actually achieved Santiago's "uncondlt'oral sur render." In nlditkn he secured near ly half of the largest province of Cuba, with all its ports and narrisans, ngalns which he was not required to strike blow. ' Every word in his d'spatch added to the exultation of the administration The comprehen?Iveress of Ms report re moved all doubts. The last reirnar.t of the naval force in the harbor had com Into his poserslon. The mine field which had i effectively kept out the American squadron, was rap'dly being taken up. The Spanish troops were promptly laying down thrlr arms, and General Toral and all his forces were prisoners. Above all in the minds of most of the officials was Shafter's refer ence to the astonishingly healthy con dition of the place and the compara tive absence of the dreaded yellow scourge. Shatter Master of the Situation. All sollcltvde for General Shafter's ability to meet any contingency that might hereafter appear at Sant'ago has disappeared, an 1 confidence now ex ists that he Is master cf the situation and that under his direction the Im provement cf all conditions will be swift. Under the circumstances, con sidering that the government at Ma drid was fully consulted and gave Its unqualified approval to the surrender, the belief Is growing that the end of the war Is plainly In sight, and It would surprise no one If a direct request -came at any moment for an. armistice to per- " '. o N. mlt a' discussion of propositions for a treaty to end the war. Although the garrisons at Guantanamo, Baracoa and other points In the surrendered terri tory have not yet been mentioned spe cifically In General Shafter's dispatch, it ! believed they will promptly deliver themselves at Santiago. . i'S .

The plans for eiending Commodore atson s eastern squadron to Spain have reached a point where naval officials are considering the exact day of departure, and it Is said that positive orders have been given that preparations musi ue brought to a close at once, with a view to having everything in readiness cy the end of this week. Two of the col liers which are to accompany the ex pedition arc at Norfolk for the purpose of putting light batteries cn them. The officer in charge of the work estimated that It would take two weeks more to get these batteries together and have them mounted. This meant dc-lry and an order has been given that the work be completed this week, or else that the 'colliers go without their light batteries. The same view is taken as to the condition of the ships. The fleet officers would like to have the ships' bottom scraped and con siderable overhauling done.
