' DlecuEusing the fall of Santiago and th surrender of General Tornl , Dr. Congest said : "There were brave soldiers at Sanli ago , and If their leader lacked courage h d crves to bo punished. Santiago shoul not have fallen as It did , and if Tornl ha not entered Into negotiations With the eneru It Is likely that there would have been different story to tell today. It Is not tru that the Spanish army there lacked supplle and ammunition , for they had plenty c both , which they turned over to the Amerl cans. If Toral had pushed forward , Instea of Retreating towards the city , ho ccrtnlnl would have caused a repulse. These ar things which ho will have to explain.
