I Garcia's Firing on Spanish Not Conditions Im proving-Shafter Reports ISO Cases of Yellow Fever and Some Fatality-Mangrove Captures Another Prize-An Investigation. WASHINGTON, D. C., July Miles expedition in all probability now in Mona Passage between Hayti anil I'orto Rico nnd will be in sight o[ landing point In tbe morning. The War Department declines to mate ny comment as to the point selected tor the landlnB place. It will be in ho closest cable communication with Miles' Headquarters alter landing. Schwau's troops got away only to-day from Tampa, and the 1st division nder Gen. Brooke clears trom Newport News Monday. The comfortable anding ot the troops is laeilitated by tho landing in detachments Instead t in one vast army as Shatter's army did at Santiago. Inasmuch as Gen. Shatter has made less important subjects a matter for ispatches, it is hard to' understand why he should tail to mention an event t such'importance as tbe reported attack ot Carcia upon the Spanish troops n their way lo surrender to Gen. Shatter. The story is therefore doubted ere. No health report came from Uen. Shatter to-day which Is believed to in- icate a continuance of improved health conditions. Some or tbe papers ome from Sampson hut the reports were closed on the day before the famous ival battle. The War Department will begin at once to execut plans by ecrctary Alger securing reserve camps in heallhful localities. It was tor his reason that Fcrnandlna was selected as a reserve camp within the last wo tloys. The value ot this policy has just been justified as otherwise there voulil have been no suitable place to which to remove the troops from Tampa. Ono reserve camp is likely to be located in the valley ot the Poto- mac, 10 miles from Washington. The State Department to-day completed ths engrossment ot the joint re- olutlons adopted by Congress extending thanks to Admiral Dewey, and it ivau transmitted to the Navy Department which will forward it to Admiral Dewey along with the-degrco ot LL.

Shatter: Wljutant General, "Washington, D. C.: HEADQUARTERS FIFTH ABMT CORPS-A colonel of engineers In the Spanish army baa just arrived trom Ouantanamo. He heard .Irom tho Freuch onsul there that Santiago had surrendered and they had been included. Not crediting it he was sent here to verify the tact.
