Washixotos, May 25.—Tiie President
today issued a second call for troops, this
time for 75,000. Apportioned among the
states according to population Delawares
quota will be 199 men.
Including this call, tiie army will now
consist of regulars 92,000, volunteers
200,000. Ten regiments of immunes,
10,000; three cowboy regiments, 3,000;
engineers at large 3500. Total 278,500.
The probable disposition of these
troops is for Cuba—100.000 men; for tiie
Philippines 25,000 men; for Porto Rico,
20,000; for home defense and emergen

General Miles, commanding the army,
i • , . . |
places more importance upon obtaming
Possession of l'orto Rico and wants the
first expedition sent to that island. j
One of liis best arguments is jliat
There is great lack of unanimity, how
ever, in tin- War Department as to which
shall start first. Secretary Algor, it is
said, favors the carrying out of the origi
should Spain sue for peace, we couln not
properly claim Porto Rico as an indem
nity, while if we had possession ,of the
island it would be different.
Under the resolutions upon winch the i
war is based the l'nited States could not
hold Cuba, for the declaration is made
that that island is to be free and inde
pendent after a stable government is es
tablished. Then lie points out the su
perior climatic conditions of Porto Rico
over Cuba which make it less perilous
for our troops.
Of course, a gre

jfit is decided to starve them out, tiie
iflockade there would employ so many

ports, also they would liave to bo
guarded and the transportation of tiie
armies would be somewhat hazardous.
Then, too, another fleet of Spain is sup
posed to be en tiie way from Cadiz,
which would be a continual menace,
especially as the battleship Pelayo is
supposed to he one of tiie number.
So in spite of tiie cry of "On to Porte
Rico" it is not probable that an expedi

General Miles again announced that lie
would start for Tampa, but before tiie
time arrived for departure, again post

by tiie receipt of positive information to
that effect.

Cervera's Fleet Useless,
special Dispatch to the sun.
Washington, May 25.—Secretary Long
And the Navy Department officials gener
ally are so firm in tiie conviction that
Admiral Cervera's fleet is bottled up at
Santiago de Cuba that persons without w
definite information are not warranted
in disputing the point.
But whether this opinion of the De
partment is to be relied upon depends
on the information which the Secretary
lias. He does not confess that any
nite statement has been received from
either Commodore, Schley or Admiral
Sampson, but indicates that his convic
tion that the Spanish fleet is at Santiago
de Cuba is based on a general knowl
edge of the situation. Secretary Long
is not in the habit of announcing an
opinion in this positive way except on
verv correct information.
The question is being discussed pro
and con, and there ts considerable specu
lation as to whether, if the Spanish fleet
is at Santiago, the entire fleet is there, or
lias been divided, and as to the number
and character of the vessfils.
One interesting question is whetjm.'
the fleet was accompanied by a supp'y
ship, and whether toe purpose of enter
ing the harbor was to land supplies, it
being found impossible to land them
elsewhere, or whether the fleet was com
pelled to seek refuge there on account
of the bad condition of some of t ho ves
No doubt is felt that if the Spanish
fleet is actually bottled up at Santiago it
was tiie intention of Admiral Cervera to
remain there until reinforcements arrived
from Cadiz. For some time it lias been
felt extremely probable that the Cadiz
fleet is coining to join Cervera.
The manceuvres of the Spanish Ad*
miral have indicated that lie was await
ing reinforcements, and it is believed
that the necessity of economizing his j
coal supply, which lie lias found diffi
culty in replenishing, compelled liis
seeking a harbor of refuge where be
could enjoy comparative immunity from
attack until reinforcements, accompanied
by transports, should arrive to join him.
It requires too great a risk for him to
attempt to reach Cienfuegos, and lie was
therefore left to choose between Santiago
de Cuba and San Juan, l'orto Rico. It
was believed by many naval authorities
that lu would try to reach San Juan,and
if it is true that lie lias not done this, but
is bottled up at Santiago, liis taking this
course is regarded ms an evidence that he
is short of coal and provisions, and t hat
liis vessels were not in a condition to un
dertake tiie trip to Sau Juan.
The .Spanish fleet enjoys greater nil
unity from attack at Santiago de
. Cuba than it would at San Juan, but
its remaining there puts an end to its j
operations and renders it extremely diili- |
cult, it nut impossible, for rebel to I ••
got to it by any fleet which Spain could |
organize. :
fhe best authorities say that if Ad
miral (lervera's fleet ,s at Santiago de I
( uba, it need no longer be counted as a j
* a iMnav be*the design of the Spanish t„ 1
send another fleet to attack ours at that;
attack'with t hVtor pedo-dest rov-eiVtinder j

our fleet to danger on hotli sides, but |
thin could not be successfully accom

of the hXr and our SS
f " ^i'"wa e » « stronu onontrl to '
destroy an v force that Spain could send
against it.
The plan of campaign being consi-1
tiered, based on thi assumption tliai'
Admiral Cervera's entire fleet is at'
Santiago, is to keep it blockaded there
and to proceed at once with the invasion !
of Cuba. This plan contemplates that as ;
soon us a suflicfe.it army is landed in
Cuba to hold the Spanish in check at;
every point and to warrant aggressive
operations, an attack bv land forces will
be made I,nor, toe town of Santiago rfo
Cuba, which it is said could speedily l ;
compelled to surrender. . / j
The occupation of Santiago de Cuba bv
our troops ind the blockading of the en- if
trance to the harbor bv our fleet would j
leave the Spanish fleet utterly without I.
support or escape, and the Spanish A.1
niiiai would either have to surrender or
have his fleet destroyed.
Tiie same plan contemplates the bom- f
bardmeut of Havana andageneral attack
upon the Spanish forces at all quarters,
Bv following this plan of prompt and ag
gressive action it is ur g e\l that before
another Spanish fleet could be got to f,
American waters we could "bag" the is
land of Cuba and Admiral Cervera's fleet
at the same time.

Washington, May 25.—The President
this afternoon issued a proclamation call
i„g for 75,000 more volunteers. This

lars and volunteers, 280,000. The text of
the proclamation is as follows:
By the President of the United States:
Whereas, An Act of Congress was ap
proved on the 25th day of April, 18PS,
entitled "An Act declaring that war
exists between the United States of
America and the Kingdom of Spain;"
Whereas, By an Act of Congress, en
titled "An Act to provide for temporar
ily increasing the military establishment
of the United States in time of war, and
tor other purposes," approved April 22,
1898, the President is aiitlioii/ed,in order
to raise a volunteer army, to issue his
proclamation calling for volunteers to
serve in the army of the Uni'ed States;
Now, therefore, I, William McKinley,
President of the United States, bv virtue
of the power vested in me by the Consti
tution and the laws, and deeming suf
ficient occasion te exis., have thought fit
to call forth, and hereby do call forth,
volunteers to the aggregate number of
75,000, in addition to the volunteers
called forth by my -proclamation of the
2iid day of April, in tiie present year;
the same to be apportioned, as far as
practicable, among the . veral States and
Territories and District of Columbia, ac
cording to populati in, and to serve for
years, unless sooner discharged,

Done at the city of Washington, this
twenty-fifth day of May, in the year of
our Lord one thousand eight hundred
and ninety-eight, and of the indepen
dence of the United States the one hun
dred and twenty-second.
By the President—
William R. Day,
Secretary of State.,
Secretary Alger said tiiis afternoon
that the additional volunteers called for I
will not be recruited from the National;
Guard, as were the first 125,000, but that.!
ducted have not yet been prepared, and
it is thought that there is no occasion
for hurrv in this matter until the full
draft cafied for in the first proclamation j
has been secured, it is further stated'
that the decision to issue an additional;
call for volunteers was not reached until i
the Cabinet meeting yesterday afternoon. |
The call, it is supposed here, indicates a |
determination to press the campaign
actively and vigorously from now on. ;
