Ki-v West. Mav 20. The movement of the American vessels under the three squadron commanders is being taken as a generally accepted fact, and that Schley is in the vicinity of .Santiago is believed to be true, while the report that the squadron under Watson is along tin; western and northern coasts is now shrouded with only a slight uncertainty. The composition of these three squad rons has been changed but the names of the vessels are not permitted to be known. It is also accepted as a fact that Schley is lobe permitted to work out the problem of Santiago himself. This arrangement is greeted wiih much satisfaction from all sides, as it is the general opinion that an experienced na val officer in the held of action is better suited to conduct his own movements than a board of strategy in Washington is. Dewey's victory is probably largely due to the fact that he was cut loose from anv communication with Washing ton and was thus unhampered by any such orders as Sumpson was troubled with in Southern waters.
