The Squadrons to be Given a General Shaking Up. 4 Washington, May 17.?The intention ul the administration to expedite the mili? tary occupation of Cuba is apparently to be coincident with a rearrangement of the ; plan of the naval campaign, which will in- ! crease efficiency of the sea forces and in? sure with greater certainty a speedier en? gagement with the Spanish ileet. A I'ress correspondent was told to-day that the administration had decided to ignore the Spanish fleet in the West Indies and make vigorous campaigns on land and water. Sampson's armor-clad division and Schyley's siiips are rapidly converging on Watsons blockading force. A junction can be affected in a few days and with such a force in Cuban waters there is no need of further delay. The gathering of these squadrons in the West Indies nil result in something more important than expediting the military campaign. It is understood that consideration is being given by the strategy board, if it has not already rendered a decision to re? arrange the naval forces so that each squadron will be better qualified to per ? jfepwhe work assigned to it. Cevera's 1 lieet is a ll\ing squadron, in fact as well as in name, and to corner it is now a prob lern confronting the administration. The United States has ouly two ships ( corresponding to the Spanish cruisers and none of the destroyer type. The New!; York and the Brooklyn and a host of pro- ' tecte.l craft are available for the new fly. ing squadron. By general exchange be- 1 tween Sampson and Scbley and Watson each could be put in better shape to over? whelm the enemy. The New York and i Brooklyn could attend to two of the j Spaniards and half a dozen protected cruisers could look out for .the rest, with ! some converted fast yachts for destroyers. For the reformed flying squadron are available the New York, Brooklyn, De? troit, Montgomery, Marblehead, Cincin nati, New Orleans, ColumLia and Minne? apolis, the dynamiter Vi*u\iiM and fast gunboats. The armor-claddivision won Id !>? com? posed of the Iowa. Indiana, Mas-acbu setts, Texat and later on the <> c with some torpedo boats and mihi:?. This! j would leave for the maintainance of the ' ?blockade four monitors, ten gunboats, sttul many smaller craft. When or where this change of formation will occur is kept I secret, but it is acknowledged the plan I has been adopted. INVASION OF CUBA. The Government May Land Soldiers There This Week. Washington, May 17.?The govern men! has decided upon an immediate , military campaign in Cuba. In the opin? ion of the administration the naval situa? tion has so changed as to warrant the landing of troops in the island despite the fact that the Spanish lleet has not been defeated. The determination to begin operations at once was reached at the cabinet meet? ing to-day. The President and advisers are opposed to pursuing a temporizing poilcy, and emphatic objection exists against allowing the elusive Spanish fleet to figure any longer as a cause for postponement. The change in the naval situation war? ranting this policy is the gathering of nearly the whole naval force of the United States in the vicinity of Cuba, thus giving! V sufficient force to deal with the enemy's f fleet and at the same time protect the transportation of military to the island. . The administration will only wait until Sampson, Scbley and Watson have come together in Cuban Waters and assumed such positions as they deem best before ordering the troops to leave. The mili? tary occupation will not begin before the end of the week. ANOTHER SPANISH TRICK. An Iron Weighted Derelict Set Adrift Off Havana. Key West, May 17.?Since the affair at Cardenas, when the Window was disa? bled, the blockade along the northern coast of Cul^a has been almost without incident. Even the fishing smacks are keeping in shore, and as no steamships are attempting to get into any of the ports the work of the gunboats on duty is in the main merely routine. A dispatch boat was steaming along the coast of Cuba off Mantanzas on Monday morning when a derelict was sighted about twelve mills off thore. It was boarded and examined. Both her masts bad been chopped off. The boat was loaded with forty pairs of car wheels of American make. There was abundant evidence that the schooner bad not been wrecked and the presumption arose that her condition was the result of :a Spanish scheme to harm some of the American ships. Should one of the smaller craft on the blockade run against the railroad iron it would have gone hard with her. The1 gunboat Wilmington immediately steam-1 m\ west and having found her used her as \ a target until she sank. Four shots did ' the business. iE 1 DEWEY GETS A NEW PRIZE.

A few Spanish boats have been cap? tured, including one gunboat on Thurs? day, May 12. The Spanish gunboat Cal lao steamed up the bay Thursday morn* iug, coming from the Southern Islands, ivhere it had been stationed for the last 1(1 months. Iis commander, Lieutenant Francisco Pou, knew nothing of war hav? ing been declared and he had beard noth? ing coming up. The result was that he steamed for Cavitte, expecting to find the whole Spanish fleet at anchor there. He arrived off Cavitte at 7 in the morning, ivith the Spanish iiag living and signals for the Spanish Admiral up.

The gun? boat escaped their sight and the three ships headed for Cardenas town. Sud? denly from a marked battery there came a screaming shell, tired at a range of 8500 yards. Our ships kept on, the Wilming? ton and the Hudson beginning to answer the enemy's fire. A few minutes after the firing began the Winslow came up and al? so opened fire. In an instant the entire attention of the Spanish gunboats and land batteries was directed upon her.

They had moored two barges outside in the roadway. The Cardenas batteries had exact range of the barges.ami every time the American vessels got near them the battery fire got dangerously near. The Wilmington was not struck. All the Spanish shots went over or passed her. The fire from our boats set fire to the town of Cardenas. shell disables the winslow, The Wilmington and the Hudson kept up their tire, but they could not turn aside the fire of the enemy from the tor? pedo boat. The crew of the Winslow did not falter for a second. But, at 2:35 p. m., a solid shot crashed into the hull of the Winslow and disabled one boiler. In an instant she began to roll and drift help? lessly. The Winslow replied bravely with her little 1-pounder guns, but the Spanish were shooting with fearful accuracy, and the Winslow, disabled, began to drift to? ward the enemy's gunboats, which had her range perfectly. ix .\ storm of fire. A fierce cheer of triumph went up from the .Spaniards on ttie gunboats and in the batteries, and again a ftoim of fire was opened upon the helpless boat. Up to this time, with the exception of the one shot which disabled the boiler of the Winslow, the tiring of the Spanish gunboats had been wild ; but, as the Win slow lay rolling in the water, the range grew closer, and shells began to explode all about her. asking the hudson' s All). The Hudson's people were in the thick? est of the fight, and did not weaken at first, despite the execution by the Span? ish gunboats and batteries. Suddenly, through the crashing of the guns, a voice reached the Hudson through a megaphone, from the Winslow, 100 feet away: "We are totally disabled." The Hudson was not struck, although right alongside the Winslow. The force of one shell explosion knocked some of her men down. brave bagley faces TUX fire. TI>e Hudson then tried to get near enough to the Winslow to throw a line to her. The enemy's tire was murderous. Finally, after trying for about 20 minutes, the Hudson approached near enough to throw a line. FiiMgu Bagley and six men were stand? ing in a group on the deck of the Winslow. "Heave her! Heave her!" shouted Bagley, as he looked toward the commander of the Hudson and called for a line. "Don't miss it!"' shouted an ofiicer from the Hudson, and with a smile Bagley called back: "Let her come! It's getting too hot here for comfort." shell's awful work. The line was thrown, and, at the same instant a shell burst in the middle of the group of men on board the Winslow. Bagley was instantly killed, and others dropped about him. some dead and some wounded. One of the dead men pitched headlong over the side of the boat, but his feet caught in the iron rail and he was hauled back. Bagley's face was complete? ly torn away, and the upper part of his body was shattered. When the shell burst in the group on board the Winslow another shout of triumph went up from the Spanish boats and batteries, and again a heavy fire was opened on the torpedo boat. mending a broken line under fire. The torpedo-boat, disabled and helpless, rolled and swayed, still under the fire from the Spanish gunboats. Finally, the Hudson succeeded in getting a line on board the Winslow. and was towing her out of range, when the line parted, and again both boats were at the mercy of the Spanish fire. At 3.50 P. M. the Hudson managed to get another line on the deck of the Wins? low, but there were only three men left there at chat time -to make it fast. The iZEWELL, VA., THT line was finally secured, and the Window was towed up to Piedras Island, where she was anchored, with her dead and wound? ed men on her decks. About 15 or 20 shots struck the Window. Several hulled her. One shot knocked off the funnel, another the venti? lator, and a third shattered the conning tower. BRING THE WINSI.OW i? CRKW HACK.

One of Our Brave Seamen Killed and Several Wounded. Key West, May 14.?The United States cruiser Marbleliead, the gunboat Nash? ville and the auxiliary cruiser Windom steamed up the harbor of Cienfuegos early Wednesday morning with orders to cut the cable connecting Havana with Santiago de Cuba. This task was accomplished but only after a terriGc tight between our war? ships and several thousand Spanish troops which lined the shore and lay concealed behind improvised breastworks. One man, a seaman, named Reagan, of the Marbleliead, was killed in one of the working small boats, and six men were severely wounded. In addition a large number on board the ship received minor wounds. CaptainS. E. Maguire, of the Windom, believes that several of the six badly wounded men who were bi ought to Key West this morning on the Windom cannot recover. El LIED AND WOUNDED. The following is the list of killed and badly wounded : Reagan, seaman of the Marbleliead, killed. The badly wounded are : John Davis, of New York. John J. Doran, of Fall River, Mass. Ernest Suntzeanickle. Herman W. Ueelineister. Harry Hendrickson, all of the Marble head. Robert Boltz, of North Carolina, of the Nashville. i Soon after the arrival of the warships jff Cienfuegos, four boats were launched und proceeded to shore for the purpose of i grappling for the cable in order to cut it. I I'he warships lay-to about 1,000 yards or more off the barbor. i It was observed that the Spanish troops had assembled ashore but it was not ; known that heavy guns had been placed i n a battery and that the oVi lighthouse, I ?r out on the neck of land, had been I janafoimed into a formidable fort. JRSDAY, MAY 19, H When the commanders of the Marble head an<l the Nashville called for volun? teers to man the boats and cut the cable the men responded with a jump. Lieutenant Melt. Winslom, of the Nash? ville, took command of the Nashville's, boats. The shore surrounding the entrance of the harbor was first shelled and then the boats proceeded in. The work of finding the cable was slowly and cautiously proceeded with. The cable was deep in the channel and was found with difficulty. One of the relays of the cable had been cut when the Spanish opened lire. The marines in the boats replied at once and a machine gun from the forward launch sent in a stream of bullets, while heavy shells from the warship drove the Spaniards from the rille pits at the shore, many of them seeking refuge in the light house fort, which was afterwards torn to pieces by a shell from the Windom. As there were gieat numbers of Spaniards in and behind the fort at the time, there is no doubt that many of them were killed. With desperate courage, the American sailors remained calmly at their posts and succeeded in dragging up the second re? lay of the cable and severing it. Seven men badly wounded was the count, and one of them, Reagan, died while on the way back to the ship. Lieutenant Wins low was shot in the hand and a number of others were more or less injured. CA1T. MAYXAKI) WOUNDED. On the Nashville Capt. Maynard was standing forward, with an ensign, when a Spanish bullet pnssed through the en sign's shoulder and struck Maynard on the chest, near the heart, wounding him only slightly. The Marbleliead was struck scores of times by bullets from machine guns, and the Nashville Buffered to about the same extent. The Windom also had many marks of the ft ay. Her shell, blowing up tiie light house and scattering the Span? iards in all directions, ended the battle. Doltz and Hendrickson, who with four others of the'wounded are at the Naval Hospital here, are expected to die. The remains of Reagan were buried. The small boats proceeded cautiously and for more than an hour worked un? molested on the cable. Suddenly, just as the work was about completed, the shore battery tired a shell at the boats. It was followed by others, and the Span? ish infantry opened fire with their ritles. Then, like a Hash, tiie .Marbleliead sent a shell inland, and followed it with a per? fect shower of shot. The Nashville was <piick to follow suit, and the little Windom cut loose with her four-pounders. in the meanwhile Spanish bullets fell in L'veiy direction around the small boats. Though the attack had come suddenly und fiercely the bluejackets were not dis? mayed, and, protected by the terrilic re? turn fire of the warshipe, work was con? tinued and the cable cut. When the boats returned to the ships, SEEKING THE CAIlI.K. MAKBLEHEAD REPLIES. June rides. This is the month of roses ari9 brides. Nearly everybody will be.invited to somebody's wedding.

Reagan, who was in one of the Marble head's boats, of which there were two, was found to have been killed, Six men were badly wounded. The Spaniards had by this time suffer? ed severe loss.

Thereafter, for the moment, the tire of the warships was concentrated upon the li^ht house, and the improvised fort was blown to pieces.
