nrf- -ai i THE EVENING BULLETIN. VOLUME XVII. MAYSVILLE, KY., FRIDAY, JULY 8, 1898. NUMBER 193. CQUNCl OF WAR HELD To Review the Situation as It Now Exists. NO OHAGES WERE ORDERED. Eastern Squadron to Sail Fcr Spain Without Delay. TWO BATTLESHIPS WILL GO One Protected Cruiser and Several Aux iar'lei, Which, With Several Col liers and a Supply Hhlp, Make Up This Trans atlantic Fleet. Washington, July 8. The president called a council of warto meet at the Whit House, the purpose being to re view the situation and learn exactly what the present conditions are and what changes, If any, Bhould be made In the plane for the future conduct of the war. According to one of the members preselt it was decided to abide by the plans already laid, at least as to the general conduct of the campaign. Confirmation seemed to have been given to this statement later in the day.fl when, after a conference with the members of the war board, Secretary Long announced to the waiting news paper men that he had ordered Admi ral Sampson to detach from his com mand immediately the vessels em braced in Commodore Watson's eastern squadron and to direct the commodore to proceed on his mission. The veisels of the squadron will not be the same as those originally select ed, for the reason probably that the recent engagement with Cervera's squadron necessitated some changes. The new eastern squadron will con sist of the battleshipslowa and "Oregon, the protected cruiser Newark, and the auxiliary cruisers carrying side armor) Dixie, Yankee and Yosemlte, the col liers Averenda, Cassius, Caesar, Leoni daB and Justin, and the supply boat Delmonlco. The ships are to set sail as soon as they can coal and supply. They will not be required, in the case of the southern vessels, to come north, which would mean the Iosb of several days, but will start directly from the points Where they are now located. The order provides that each ship shall make her way across the Atlantic to a marine rendezvous, which will be designated in sealed orders to prevent its exposure to the slightest possible danger from the enemy, and the most that is known is that It will be at some point off the Spanish coast. It probably will not be long after that before the American squadron will be in full pursuit of Camara with his remnant of the Spanish navy. Meanwhile the gathering of the American fleet off the Spanish ports is expected to have a sobering effect upon the inflamed people. The number of colliers accompany ing the expedition Is evidence that a long cruise lies ahead, and that our naval authorities propose to be caught in no such position as was Camara at Port Said obliged to submit to a re fusal of coaling privileges. A telegram received at the state de partment announced that Camara was utlll lying with his squadron at Suez, the southern and eastern entrance to the canal. The torpedo boats Osada, Proser pina and Audaz, which were reported at Pharo, Portugal, arrived at Cadlr, their home port Admiral Dewey has been notified of all these movements. The very flrBt care of the oflclala will be fox1 tho wounded men who are to be brought north as rapidly as their condition will permit There was some Idea of taking one of the big hotels at Fortress Monroe, standing on the government reserva tion, for the purpose of a hospital, but it Is said to be the present plan to substitute a number of large tents which, when properly pitched and placed, are said to be hygienically better than enclosed structures for tho treatment of wounds at this season of the year, Meanwhile all is being done in the neighborhood of Santiago to alleviate the suffering at Santiago that condi tions will permit. Thursday afternoon came a telegram from General Shat ter to the war department as follows: "In the name of the sick and wound ed oAoers and men under my com mand, I thank Mr. J. W. Mackay for the let sent us," Much f the difficulty experienced In supplying the troops on the battle fields still lie lp tke transportatioA de paHfcMkt General SWfter has reprf 44 m ffrtt ty iVrtpwfe. fctha received as yet only one lighter, the Laura, and this Is able under the best conditions to carry ashore supplies for only one day for the army, from tho transports lying far out at Baa. Whal might happen n the event of bad weather can be conjectured. The necessary orders were given during the day to start the Philadel phia for Hawaii, carrying Ad,mirat Mllier with a notice of the action of the United States government add direction to United States Minister Sewell to take formal possession In the name of the United States. The Hawaiian legation hero has taken steps mean while to get the earliest news from Honolulu through telegrams to their consul at San Fran cisco, who will dispatch them on the Coptic. Major General Nelson A. Miles, com manding the army, accompanied by the entire staff of army headquarters, left for Charleston, S. Ci, where the party will embark for Santiago. At the same time Lieutenant Colonel Michler and a large staff of head quarters' clerks who have been In Tampa will come north to Charleston and join the party. The start will be made from Charles ton on the first steamer after the gen eral and his staff arrive. This may be either the Yale or Columbia, which pre taking on troops there. If the troops are ready to start be fore the party arrive they will go on and the general will follow on the Resolute or one of the other steamers to Ball under the Yale and Columbia. It Is expected that the party will be at Santiago the early part of next week. On the eve of his departure General Miles expressed sat'sfactlon on start ing to Join the troops, He spoke of the sacrifices and hardships they had passed through recently, and of those yet to come. It has operated severely against the general officers, and Gen eral Miles feels that he, too, Is not en tirely Invulnerable In a country of heat, Bwamp and disease. Dut he has a strong physique, his muscles are as hard as iron, and he goes expecting to stand a good deal of knock-about ser vice. General Miles himself has no other purpose in going to Santiago than to look over the military situation and to strengthen the hand of Shatter. There is no intention on his part to take in any manner from the glory that Shatter has won or may win in this campaign. He will not relieve General Shatter of his command unless the latter's physical condition is such as to demand some such action. The war department admitted for the first time that two expeditions, one on the Florida and another on thf Fanita had successfully proceeded from Florida porta to points In central and western Cuba, where large quantities of arms and supplies were landed for General Gomez's command. This Is the first time that arms have got to Goms and his men in the west ern sections, as the first expedition equipped Garcia and his men around Santiago. The Florida and Fanita left sometime ago, but their movements were guarded with the greatest care in order that a premature publication might not jeopardize the safely of those on board as well as the delivery of the guns. The time of danger is now past, how ever, and the full stock of guns, am munition and supplies is in the hands of General Gomez's troops. Sinking of Relna Mercedes. Washington, July 8. Admiral Samp son has telegraphed the navy depart ment aB follows: "Abopt midnight the Relna Meroedes was seen by t$t Mas sachusetts, which vessel had a search light on the channel, coming out of the harbor of Santiago. The Massachu setts and Texas opened Are, and the Spanish vessel was sunk opposite Es treela Cove. I am inclined to think it was the intention to sink her In tho channel, and thus block the harbor en trance. If bo, this plan was defeated by the fire of the ships, as she lies dn the edge of the shore." Hobion and Comrades Exchanged, Off Jurogua, Cuba, July 8. Rich mond P. Hobson, lieutenant United StateB navy; Osborne Deignan, cox lst; John Kelly, water tender; George Charette, a gunner's mate; Daniel Montague, seaman; J. C.

Hobson and his comrades were given a great ovation when they reached the American lines. Ban Froncfsco, July 8. The depar ture of the Fourth Manilla expedition before the middle of net week Is now assured. There Is some doubt, how ever, bb to whether It will be com manded by General Miller, aB has been atinounced. There are only two trans ports now ready to sail, and these can not carry more tlan 1,600 men. There fore the expedition may be placed in c&Rrge.of Major Sanfprd C. Kellogg, Dnrlnl of Ellli.
