Expected That They Will Be In Porto Kico Sunday, After Which Word U Looked For of the Expedition Only at Certain Intervals Gratitude of the Reg iment to Mr. loiter. After the last of the letters written near Santiago to relatives and friends at home has been received, it is ex jiected that little will ! heard defi nitely of Company A for a tune. In fact the department at Washington does not expect direct intelligence of Gen. Miles1 expedition enroute from Cuba to 1'orto Kico for some days hence, and only at certain intervals after it arrives. From the best of cal culations, the expedition should find a landing on Porto Kican soil and raise the stars and stripes some time to morrow. The bovs in blue iiiut fight and vanquish the enemy before they are again heard from. The advancing army, of which Company A is a part. is Deiieved to have passed tape llav- tien. on the north coast of Hayti, a little more than one hundred miles from the Mole. Cape llaytien is the last cable station on the way to Porto Kico and is 450 miles from San Juan. A Washington dispatch says "it is feared Gen. Miles during the opera tions against Porto Rico will have to send messages to Cape Havtien, ami it is exiHicteu there will henceforth be long periods during which the move ments of the American army will be uiiKnown. . Forces In the Expedition. There are under Gen. Miles' imme diate command 4,415 men. These in clude the 6th Illinois, 6th Massachu setts, HO men of the signal corps, 7th hospital corps, Lomac's batterv B. oth artillery, four light batterie's of the dil and 4th artillery and 275 recruits for the 5th corps. "The four light batteries with Gen. Miles, referred to in his dispatch, are C and F of the 3d artillery and B and F of the 4th. The 6th Massachusetts and the' 6th Illi nois regiments are a portion of (Ten. Garretson's brigade. The 8th Ohio regiment, also belonging to (ion. Gar retson's brigade, was landed in Cuba, and in accordance with the decision of the department not to send to Porto Kico any of the troops which took part in the operations con nected with the Santiago campaign, that organization was left behind. The Yale and Columbia, which con veyed (Jen. Miles' troops from Charles ton, are with the transports, and anions' the convoys is the Ix-vden. on which is Seaman Sam Bowlbv. of this city, who may thus be given a chance for shore leave and an opportunity to meet his townslxtys in the infantry. A I'AKTIMi WUKU OK THANKS. Col. Foster Expremea Gratitude for the Letter Water Wagon. Before " leaving Camp Alger Col. Foster, of the 6th Illinois regiment, paid a tribute of gratitude to L. Z. Loiter for his generos ity in providing the regiment with an improved water wagon such as the regiments of no other state in the camp had the benelit of. When the camp was first established it was evi dent to Mr. Leiter that the Illinois novs were to tind dilhcmtv m getting an adequate supply of pure water. and he had a large wagon with eiht barrels having sanitary spigots built iorinem. jne drinking water was hauled from springs some distance off. A review of the hospital wagons at breaking camp showed that Illinois had only three sick men, while Mas sachusetts had 40 and Ohio 34. and the regimental surgeons laid the credit to better drinking water. Col. Foster's last words on leaving the encampment field to an Illinois man were: ' Please thank Mr. Leiter for myself and my men he has made life exsier for lis. and the wagon and outfit will go with us wherever the fot tunes of war take us." The wagon, pump, barrels ami all were carefully packed up and installed among the regiment al plunder as part of the command's most precious luggage. Sergt. Ilorton III.
