It would put the Spaniards under a neutral flag, which would insure their reception without difficulty at home and it would relieve our gov- ernment of the necessity of sending with the prisoners the heavy gnard that would be required if they were conveyed on United States trans- ports. Economically, it was thought that tho proposition was a sound one. Assuming that the compaaies charged the usual passenger rates for soldiers, the transfer could bo affected at a cost not to exceed a sum which is probably less than would be the cost of the service if undertaken directly by our government.

WASHINGTON, July fol- lowing statement has been issued by Secretary Alger from the dispatches he has received from the officers at and it is feared that if these reports are well founded it may be difficult to induce transportation companies to undertake the task of convoying sick soldiers and those who had been exposed to infection. There is also doubt whether the Spanish authorities would allow the men to land on Spanish soil. Adjutant General Corbin said that the necessary rations to care for the Spanish soldiers when they surren- dered had been secured, and were now in place for immediate delivery at Santiago. It is presumed that the quartermaster's will avoid the enormous undertaking of transporting these supplies over the mountain trails by sending these Santiago: "Tho commissioners on the part i supplies in vessels into the harbor of the United States narnod by 1 to the city of Santiago.

Nothing further has been received from the general on this subject and the assumption is that the com- missioners are still at work endeav- oring to arrange the details of the surrender. These are likely to be more com- plex than are generally supposed, foraeide from matters of actual moment, such as the methods of transportation, the carriage of arms by troops and the transportation of the surrendered Spanish officers, there are many smaller matters to be attended to, some of them grow- ing out of the fantastic Spanish no- tions of honor, which are quite as troublesome to deal with as matters of vital importance. The French cable was shut dfwn over night, and that was supposed at first to be the reason why further reports were not forthcoming from Shatter or Miles. It wag believed that the cable op- erators, Frenchmen, had become wearied from their protracted la- and refused to continue at work last night.

President ieKiuley gave expression today to hope for an early peace. esponding to congratulations on IB sncrajtis of tho Santiago cam- paign, ho said ''I hope for early peace now. In the course of other interviews e gave voice to the same senti- ent, not expressing his entire be- ef, but a strong hope, that peace onld come. The dispatch from adrij announcing the royal decree nspending individual rights m win was quickly communicated to 16 president and read at the cab- net meeting. As in Madrid, it was generally to mean the imminence of a move of the Spanish government jr a cessation of hostilities. It was eceived with this interpretation ith great satisfaction but in the lisonce of a definite official an- Onncoment of Spanish motive, the dministration, while strongly oping for it, is not entirely confident of so satisfactory an utcome. A member of the cabinet xpressed his opinion that the issu- nce of the decree at this time ndicated the end was not far off. ut he was not sure that whs the mulsh intention. He cited the requency of misconstruction of unish motives and the intentional ilsleading as to the course it la- nded to pursue. At the same me he took a hopeful view of the tnation and thought that the oyal pronunciamento might, in the xigency of the Spanish case, prove bo the entering wedgo in a peace movement, PREMO CAMARAS! to ami tup- pHMtfallklntfa. M. U. JONES, FEVER CONDITIONS HAVE IMPROVED. WASHtKOTOH, July in- quiries are coming to the war de- partment as to the condition of the sick and wounded American near Santiago. The ttppearanw of yellow fever among tho troops was an additional cause of apprehension and doubled the number of queries.

Thousands of jodioa have been recovered from le river and have been buried at Voo Chow. The losses of the im- forces are probably more than killed, which tho number rst announced. It is reported here that the Chinese cctor Hun Yat Senm, who was nveigled into the Chinese embassy n London in 1K9C and imprisoned tore until he succeeded in notifying tie British government official irough a friend that he had been idnaped, is among the leaders of be present rebellion. It is said the rebels have decided iot to advance further than Bhn ling above Sams fluey, fearing f or- ipn complications in the event of Canton being attacked. The credibility of this report is uostioned, as tho inhabitants oi Canton are greatly in sympathy with the rebels.

All Are on the   ender and when toneral Shatter nnonnced negotiations at an end, was believed that the taking of he city without further fighting was an impossibility. The artillery f the federal forces was ordered o be rushed to the front, the invest- ng line was extended to surround tie town completely, and every reparation was made for the linal assault. Acting under instructions from Washington, however, Ueneral Shatter again proposed surrender yesterday, and at a conference at which General Miles and Ueneral Toral were present it was proposed o allow Spanish officers to retain heir side-arms and the American Commander offered to send the de- ented army to Spain nnder convoy and on parole. The story of the conference has already been told. General Toral 's announcement that the matter would have to be referred to his government convinced the officers it the that nothing 'orther would come of the negotia- tions and an order was issued to irepare for a general attack at noon oday, at which hour the extended armistice erpired. The men at the 'ront made every preparation for rattle, the fleet gathered around the Ittlo bay of Aguadores, roady to lurl shell over the hill and into the city, and the combined American forces quietly and grimly awaited tho word of Ueneral Miles. But while all these preparations were going forward, General 8haf ter and General Miles were still hard at work in an attempt to avoid tho slaughter which must follow an at tack.
