As a result of tho conference, Gen eral Sbafter will insist ujou tho itu me.liato withdrawal of tho army north within two weeks. As an explanation of the sitnation, the following letter from Col. Theo dore I'.oosevelt, coiimiantlinft the Tirot volunteer cavalry, t 'General Shafter, was haiuleJ by tho latter to the correfymuileut of tho Associated lress for publication: "Major General Shafter Sir: In a meeting of the general and medical llieers called by you at the palace this morning, we were all, as you know, unanimous in view of what ehouhl bo done with tho army. To keep us here, in tho opinion of very officer com manding a division or brigade, will simply involve the destruction of thou sands. "There is no possible reason for not ehippiug practically the entire com maud north at once. Yellow fever cases aro few in the cavalry division . where I command one of the two brigades, and not one true case of yel low fever has occurred in this division, exoept among the men sent to the hos pital at Siboney, where they have, I believe, contracted it. But in this di vision there have been 1,500 cases of malarial fever. Not a roan has died from it, but the whole command is bo weakened and shattered as to bo ripe for dying like rotten eheep when a real yellow fever epidemic, instead of a fake epidemic, like the preseut.strikes us, as it is bound to do if we stay hero at the height of the sickness season, August and tho beginning of Septem ber. "Quarantine against malarial fever is much like quarantining against tho toothache. All of us are certain, as soon as tho authorities at Washington fully appreciate the conditions of the army, to bo sent home. If wo aro kept here.it will in all human proba bility mean an appalling disaster, for tho surgeons here estimate that over half the army, if kept hero during the sickly season, will die. This is not only terrible from the standpoint of the individual lives, but it means ruin from the standpoint of the military efficiency of the flower of the Ameri can army, for the great bulk of tho regulars are here with you. "The sick, large though it is, ex ceeding 4,000, affords but a faint idea of the debilitation of the army. Not ten per cent, are lit fcr rctivo work. Six weeks on the nortu Maine coast, for instance, or elsewhere, where tho yellow fever germ cannot possibly propagate, would make ua all as lit as fighting cocks, able as we aro eager, to take a leading part in the great campaign against Ilavana in the fall, even if wo are not allowed to try Porto Ilico. "We can be moved north, if moved at once, with absolute safety to the country, although, of course, it would have been infinitely better if wo had been moved north or io Torto Rico two weeks ago. If there were any object in keeping us here, we could face yellow fever with as much indif ference as we faced bullets, but there is no object in it. Tho four immune regiments ordered here are suflicient to garrison tho city and surrounding towns, and there is absolutely nothing for us to do hero and there has not been 6ince the city surrendered. It is impossible to move into the interior. Every shifting of camp doubles the sick rate in our present weakened con dition, and anyhow the interior is rather worse than tho coast, as I have found by actual recounoissance. Our present camps aro a3 healthy as any camps at this end of the island can be. "I write because I cannot see our men who have fought so bravely and who have endured extreme hardships and danger so uncomplainingly, go to .destruction without striving, so far a3 lies in me, to avert a doom as fearful as it is uuneoessary and undeserved.
