Genernl Shifter Officially Declnrei Yellow Kot Visited Any of Hii Cimpa. STARVED INSURGENTS HOT TO FIGHT. Wondtrful Dlipliy of Patriotic Fervor by Famiihed Cubans in the Army Before Santiago. REMARKABLE HEALTH AMONG SHAFTER'S TROOPS. Cervera Sheltered Poiitioo at Entrance to He Try to Dodge Out? June BUte department lias information that the Caninra nVet has practically abandoned its trip to llic Philippines, having ruu against so ninny obstacles which are insurmountable. Among them is the regula- tion, under convention of all Europe, which guarantees tlie neutrality of the .Suez Canal, unit permits only one war ship of any nation to enter the waterway at one ship being compelled to get out of the canal before another goes in. As C'ainura has twelve vessels with him, it take many days to get the licet through. The navy department has decided to rush Commodore fon's fleet to Gibraltar, so that it may airivo before Giiiiani. can gel bach there. 1'OUXD ANOTHER 111DINXI I'LACIC. June Sampson has definitely ascertained that Cen-era lias taken up ;i position with his squadron near High Hill, at the entrance to Santiago harbor. He is perfectly safe there from shells of tin; American Imt lie can do nothing from that point to American vessels; nor can he turn his guns against Shafter's army. THIS HAKES rr ALL BIGHT. NEW YORK, .lime Evcnin? U'orld's special says that Gcriiiiiny will land marines at Manila, with the consent of Washington authorities. ;t June mentioned in these dispatches yesterday, the belief grows in official circles here, that Admiral Camar'a's licet, will not go into the Indian Ocean at all, Inif will return to Cadix. as soon as it appears that Mjm- inodoru Watson has sailed for eastern Cuba with his (lying squadron, lictircd naval officers express the belief that n big double game of blnfl is ]inw going on, Spain seeking to convey Hie false impression of an expedition against Dewey. and the I'niled States making a fictitious demonstration against the I'oast of Spain. One thing is certain, however. If Camara passes through tlie canal, lie will be overhauled ami compelled to light an American squadron before lie can reach Jlanila. If he returns to the American fleet may not, leave Cuba waters. Another rumor lias leaked out from the navy department, to Hie cellVL that after WaUon's flying squadron has started in pursuit of Camilla'.-; licet. Admiral Sampson with a strong array of war ships, will sail afiain-t tlie Canary and the coast, of Spain. These rumors are not conlirmeil, ollicially, because the ultimate denouement depends Inrgely upon Camara's action, and the intentions of Hie. navy department may be modilied thereby. It is evident that most important naval movements in the very near future are not only conlcm- plated, but determined upon, and only await tlie capture of Cervera's licet to lie executed. If Camara's lluel shall sail through the Indian Ocean into (lie Richie, very great interest and suspense will accompany it. on the part of the American peo- ple, liecanse of its menace to tUe transport tleets of soldiers for the Philippines, which it might be able to intercept. NO YKLLOW KKVEli. June reply In a telegram, sent at the in-tancc of President JlcKinley, asking about reports that yellow fever had made its appear- ance amongst the Iroops at. Santiago, General Shatter stales that such reports are absolutely false. The weather, he says is very good, and tlie health of Ihc troops is cvccllenl. The war department lias made public ihe following oflieial statement: Sccrctarv of War. Washington: I'LAYA DKL KSTH. -lime oil' Pihoney, Cuba, June of tin: dead arc marked so that there will be no mistake in idcnlilicalion.

OX, June following correspondence was given out at the war department this morning: To -Major General Shafter, commanding: The president directs me to send his thanks to yon and your ainiy for the "allant. action of vesterdav, which I gladly do. II. A. Secretary of War. In reply to this the following was received: Seeretarv of War: Sincere thanks to the president for h'> coiifiialnlations. SHAKTKH. Major General. A TOUCHING KXAMI'I.I-; 01' I'ATIilOTISM. I'l.AVA MEL FSTK, June 20. -Two thousand insurgents, from Calisto Garcia's command, who were embarked on the. transport l.eona at Ascuradcros. June 2.ith, and arrived at Siboney the same aftern >on, aiv under command of llrigadier General Sanchez. They landed through alicavy surf and lined up, emaciated, half naked and in some instances entirely nude. Weak as they were, they stood up proudly and shouted "Culm Libra." The fami-hed fellows were overjoyed to meet the American troops, and at the sight of food they fell to like starring men. With swollen feet and every evidence of long sniveling, they cheerfully got tlicm- in readiness to march at once in advance of the regulars toward Santiago. SUDDEN' DEATH OK CIHUXS. ItAIQUIIil, Cuba, via Kingston. J.....: nice starving insurgents who reached the American lines, after having been without food for three days, have died from the effects of eating too much food before their stomachs were in con- dition to receive it. They ravenously devoncred raw corned beef and pork and a large quantity of hardlack, and shortly afterwards were seized with acute cramps and died six hours after partaking of Ihc food. MAKE 'EM OF ANY OLD THING. MADTC1D, June queen regent to-day authorized the formation of an auxiliary squadron of warships at Cadix. HONOR TO WHOM DUE. WASHINGTON, June the senate this morning, a joint resolution was reported and passed, recognizing tlie gallantry of I.ientenat Frank II. Nowcome, of the. torpedo boat Hudson, and his officers and crew at Cardenas; and Captain Hodgcson, of the revenue cutter Hugh McCulloch, at Manila. Lieut. Nevvcome. receives the thanks of congress and a. gold medal; his officers receive silver med- als, and men of his crew bronze medals. Captain Hodgeson (tieing 0.1 years of ngcl is to be placed on permanent waiting orders or on the retired list on duty pay. June similar joint resolution was passed giving the of congress to Assistant Naval Constructor Ilobson and the volunteer crew of the eolHcr Jlerrimae, sunk in the. channel at Santiago. After the passage of this last resolution, Mr. Hoar stated that names of members of Ihe crc.w   -pired against his life, wus, captured after n xcvcie light and f.hol as a traitor. How Aguinaldii. knowing the wnole island is i ferment, ean suppose lie or any Phil- ippine combination could govern the Mauds without tlie help of u foreign power i.-: inconceivable. It is stated that Aguinaldo had an .interview witli the Herman admiral, .Dicdorichs, yesterday. INTERESTING PAPERS. WORK OF THE WRITERS.

The Storming of Mono CHS tie May Even Now Have Been Begun try General Shatter's Gallant Troops. GENERAL KENT'S COMMAND TO HAVE THAT HONOR. The Mines are to be Removed From the Channel and Sampson Will Engage Ceivera'a Fleet. June Shnftor has reported to the war depart- ment that he can carry Santiago by assault in forty-eight hours. JIe came to this conclusion after a survey of the field. JTe will, however, not undertake the assault ut once, because not all his siege guns are in position, and because his own forces are constantly gaining in strength, while Hie Spaniards nve growing weaker. AUK STRONGLY ENTRENCHED. BAIQUIRI, -June 27th. via Phiyn del Este, June News haw at Cuban headquarters at Sihonoy that, the Spaniards are strongly entrenched ut Santa Ursula and Liiguiias, both important entrances to Santiago City. The have oreoied two heavy batteries, including, it is believed, some guns which were landed from the Spanish cruisers and Almiranle CAUP HAYILLA, Near Santiago. Kingston, .Mine storming of Morro Ciietle liable to be ordered nuw at any moment. General Kenl has pressed forward with his division and occupies a strong position on the. left IhinU of the enemy, and to .Morro Castle. Elis men hold the railroad nmnmgalong the coiiFt, and the, American Hag Jliea from eve.iv Mil top on the shore, from Sl- bmiev to within two miles of the castle promontory, upon whose crest Jlorro Castle Is situated. The position hold by Onera! Kent's division is one of great strategical importance, and the fact thai it was abandoned without resistance, shows that (lie Spaniards themselves have no hopes of making a successful stand oven at Santiago, under the gnus of Con-era's licet. The successful storming of Morro Ca-llc means the complete control of the narrow entrance to Santiago har- bor, the removal of the obstruct ion.- iind the mines and the admission of i-anip- soif? licet to engage Cervera in :i light to (lie finish. .Nothing but capifuIHion bv General 'Linares and Adminil Cervera can now avert a. bloody the will iiglit face to face. Huge siege guns have at last been placed in po- sition on the heights where they can be used with destructive efTecl. upon the enemy in the valley below, while the guns of Corveru's lleet. cannot be successfully elevated so as In dislodge them. The much vaunted Spanish fortifications about tho city have nol in any substantial form other limn n scries of barbed wire fences several in num- ber, ami ut u distance of about fifty fret npnrt, between which tangled wire has been placed to make the advance of our troops as dillicult as possible. Cuban insurgents are to take the lead, a? a skirmish lino of attack, while the American regulars advance in line of battle so far as admissible, by topographical condi- Concials Wheeler, Kent and Garcia, lifter consultation with General Klmflor, have agreed upon the points at which the Cubans shall attack. All Inuk for tin: early capture of the city. They realize, however, Unit the enemy is prepared (o make a desperate resistance, Intl. they are confident that the superior numbers and courage of their troops will insure a complete victory. .Neither Go.....-at .Shallcr nor General Garcia, it is understood, place any credence in the report that General Linares lias divided his forces to attack our army from the rear when the Ameri- cans advance against1 the city. General Giircia maintains that tho Spanish mm- mandor not. a force large enough to warrant, him in adopting such a. course, lie bases (his opinion on the reports brought hy his reliable scouts. All the information at hand indicates that General Linares will hold his entiin force in Santiago. One reason that goes to assurance of an early battle, is desire of General Shaffer to have it all over before General Pando can arrive with rein- forcements. INDEPENDENCE TO BE OFFERED.
