Brooke Will St&rt as Soon as Shatter Has Made Sure of Santiago, Which Place Will Probably Be Used as a Base of Supplies. General Miles Will Probably Lead the Expedition to Capture Havana. NEW YohK, July 2.—A special to The Times from Washington says: The Porto Rican expedition which is the nest number on the war pro gramme after the surrender of San tiago, is to be led by Major General John R. Brooke, now commanding the First army corps at Chickamauga, who will be made military governor of the island after its capture. Having pro vided for the forwarding of sufficient reinforcement to General Shafter to in sure his being able to take Santiago when he gets ready to move his full army against it, the administration again is turning its attention to the details of the invasion of Spain's other valuable island possession in the West Indies, with a view to being prepared to fall upon it the moment Linares and Cervera have capitulated. The plans have so far progressed that General Brooke has been selected to command the army ot invasion, and has b°en ordered to get his corps, the First, composed of ^7 regiments of volunteers, ready to move to Tampa within a week or ten days. From there they will be sent to Santi ago, preparatory to the movement on San Juan, which will be made from Southeastern Cuba as a base. The des ignation of General Brooko for the Porto Rici'.n enterprise is in accord ance with his own wishes. While General Brooke's corps, in cluding 3U,000 men, is destined for Porto Kico, it will be sent lirst to San tiago. As revealed, in part from oi licial sources of the highest authority, the plan is to make the Porto Rican campaign a continuation, so to speak, of the Santiago enterprise, instead ot an independent and separate under taking. "W ith the American array in posses sion of Santiago, it will be made a soit of base lur the movement on Porto Eico. Being but a little out of the wav of the direct route from Florida to Porto Rico, it is admirably suited, army authorities say, for a half way station between Tampa and San Juan. With General Momtt in the Pnilip. pines, and General Brooko in Porto JRico, i£ will remain for the other rank ing uiajur general of the regular army, General Miles, to lead the main expedi tion against Havana, when the time comes for the final movement to drive the Spaniards out of Cuba. Unless Spain surrenders sooner, it is believed that to General Miles will be intrusted this important service in def erence to his place as commanding general in the army and in recognition as well o£ his line record as an Indian fighter in days gone by.

WASHINGTON, July ].— The opinion prevails here that within a day or two at most General Shafter will have be gun his attack upon the city of San tiago proper. The important event of the day was the general's message that he could take the city in 48 hours, but at considerable loss. Taken in connec tion with the announcement inanothe dispatch that he was going to attack without awaiting reinforcements it will be seen that the officials have grounds for their expectation that the first general engagement of the war will begin in a very short time. Nu merically the opposing armies are not very different, the estimate of the Spanish force being placed at 14,000 men, thoroughly intrenched behind Barbell Wire Fences and V'lock Ilouses, as against about 18,000 men under Shatter's command, aided by 4,000 Cubans. One of the gravest elements iu the problem, however, are the Span ish warships, for unless Shafter is ma terially assisted by Sampson, who might engage the full attention of the Spanish ships, their fire upon the American advancing forces would be cry hard to meet. The military au thorities here say that General Linares has shown great military tactics in slowly retiring during the last few days, as he has gradually drawn our troops away from the protection of the American ships and brought thorn close to the fire of the Spanish Ships in Santiago Harbor. For this reason it was with relief that the announcement was received here that Shafter had succeeded in landing all of his artillery, including his siege train, for unless Sampson can bo relied upon to force his way into the harbor and attack the Spanish ships, tho siege guns planted on heights commanding the bay will be tho main reliance of General Shafter in offsetting the pres ence of the Spanish ironclads. Undoubtedly Shafter is animated to attack as soon as possible by his knowl* edge of the approach of the reinforce ments for Linares from Manzanillo, for with this additional force Shafter's position would bo disagreeable, if not perilous, at least until he had rootired reinforcements. FLYING SQUADRON *0 MOKE. Has Been Merged Into the Fleet Under Admiral Sampson. OFF SANTIAGO DE CUBA, June SJ8, via Kingston, Jamaica, July 1.
