LOANS TO SALAKIKD PEOPLE or Gentle   Assocutod Pn-H-O KKY WEST, Fla., May A. is now almost certain that Commodore Schley has the Spanish fleet bottled up in the harbor of San- tiago de Cuba. There is so little doubt about this that the naval campaign is proceed- ing upon the assumption that Ad- miral Cervera is incapable of doing any harm. Within a few days the exact con- ditions at Santiago de Cuba will be known without a shadow of doubt. In spite of assertions to the con- trary, Commodore Schley was not absolutely sure of bis game when he last communicated with Rear Ad- miral Sampson, and the commodore will not take active steps to block up the entrance of Santiago harbor until be' is perfectly certain that Admiral Cervera's ships are inside. However, he may have done this already, as Commodore Schley's last communication, forwarded on Thursday, only reached Rear Ad- miral Sampson yesterday. The commodore stayed three days at Cienfuegos. He signalled to his ship, "I believe the Spanish fleet is in the harbor." On this belief, a message was sent to the American admiral. The details of how Com- modore Schley found out that he was mistaken are not yet known. At any rate, acting on the admiral's instructions, the commodore then moved east, arriving outside Santi- ago de on Wednesday morn- ing, May 25tb. The topography of Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba are almsot identical. Both harbors are about six miles long with narrow en- trances about 300 yards wide and protected by highland. A whole fleet could lie in the harbor of either place and be invisible from the out- Aide. After his experience at Cienfuegos, it is probable1 that Com- modore Schley was very consera- tive in deciding whether or not he had canght Admiral Cervera. From the tone of his dispatches it is evident that the commodore soon gained much second-hand 'and ex- ternal evidence which pointed to Admiral Cerveia's presence in the inner harbor. This evidence was apparently strong enough to make tho commo- dore feel certain the object of his trip had been accomplished, but in view of his previous experience, he would not risk a decisive statement until after ascertaining the fact for himself. Bafore this dispatch is published, it is likely that Commodore Schley has sent some vessel into the en- trance of the harbor of Santiago de Cuba or has obtained from a re- THE PRIZE WINNERS.

The United States auxiliary cruiser Za- iro, which arrived here at mid- night yesterday, reports that Rear Admiral Dewey is short of provi- sions and ammunition. The Havilo-Manila cable, it is said, was cut by the Americans on May 23. A brush between the in- surgents and the Spanish occurred near Cavite on Majr 30. The entire American fleet is at Cavite. The report that some of tke American ships had sailed for Ilolio, where the Spanish gunboat El Cano is supposed to be, is in- correct. Agninaldo, tho insurgent leader, is with the insurgents be- tween the Americans and the Spaniards. The incendary fires continue. The priests and nuns at Manila have been removed from the latter place to Laguna. All the coast towns are reported to be held by Spanish troops. The Americans are repairing the slip at Cavite.

Contrary to the generally ex- pressed opinion, the harbor of Santi ago de Cuba is poorly protected, Mr. Wise and has proved a faithful i and valuable assistant. The work of examining the lists submitted in competition has been a truly gigantic task. It has con- sumpd much more time from the fact that the judges were unable to devote their attention singly to the work, but could only work upon the lists in time siezed from other duties. They havo performed their work carefully, conscientiously and with the utmost impartiality.

DMtntlon Daj, Hondiiv, Mat "OUl, Like Havana and San Juan de Poito Rico it has its Morro castle, which is even a better target than those of Havana and San Juan. The only danger to bo feared is from the mines which have been laid in the chinnel of Santiago since war was declared. Bnt counterming would probably render these mines harmless, should it prove desirable for Commodore Schley's ships to enter tho harbor. Bach a step, however, is unlikely. In this connection it may bo noted that, since the commencement of the naval the moral effect of the mines has been great. This condition promises to continue, and will probably mark tho naval operations to a greater extent than over imagined in the past. A prominent naval authority said to tho correspondent of the Asso- ciated Press: "Tho moral effect of torpedos and mines will prove far superior to their actual effect. In fact, so great is their moral force that there is no doubt whether their powers of exe- cution will havo an opportunity to be judged in this war."
