WASHINGTON, May 12.—The army j
movement on Cuba is now fairly
launched and a conserted effort is be- I
ins made all along the line to begin |
aggressive operations on a big scale I
for the ejectment of the Spanish troops j
and government from the Pearl of the j
Antilles. An order given by the war j
department for the purchase of 3,000,- j
000 rations is an earnest of the scale I
on which preparations are making for j
invasion of Spain's territory. Of this
vast quantity, one-fourth is togo to |
the Philippines by way of San Fran
cisco and the balance to Cuba.
The department has made a great
many changes in the original program
laid down for the concentration of
troops, and many bodies of volunteers
that were originally slated for one of
the great concentration camps have
found themselves under orders to pro
ceed direct to southern points, so that
volunteers from the East and middle
West will soon be moving swiftly to
Florida and the Gulf, while from the
West the cars will be carrying troops
to San Francisco.
PORTO RICO PROGRAM.
It All Awaits Some Uufinitn News From
WASHINGTON, May 12,-rntil news
comes from Admiral Sampson of his
doings in and around Porto Rico it
cannot be said definitely what program
shall be decided on In regard to that
island. It has been suggested that
some of the troops now being hurried
so rapidly to the Gulf coast may be
intended to co-operate with Admiral
Sampson in the reduction of the forti
fications at San Juan de Porto Kico J
and the occupation of the Island.
It is felt that the admiral will be in j
a rather disagreeable plight for lack
of troops supposing even that he man
aged to reduce the forts with his fleet,
if he were obliged to remain there in
occupation of the place, when he might
otherwise be urgently needed either
on the Cuban coast or somewhere in
the Atlantic to meet the Spanish fleet.
An evidence of the wisdom of hav
ing the troops transports near at hand
in such eases is shown by the predic
ament Admiral Dewey is believed to
be in at Manila, where for lack of
troops he is unable to occupy the town
and to prevent atrocities which the in
surgents are capable of inflicting upon
their helpless Spanish foes.
FEARS FORTHE OREGON.
Some I>oubts About the Spanish Fleet
lieing at Cadi/..
WASHINGTON, May 12.—Notwith
standing what appear* to be confirma
tory newspaper advices relative to the
presence of the Spanish Cape Verde
fleet at Cadiz, the navy department
officials are beginning to entertain
doubt of the accuracy of the report. It
has not been possible to obtain any
thing like an official confirmation of
the report, but this is not to be won
dered at in view of the success with
which the Spanish government has so
far met with in keeping secret the
movements of the naval ships.
The revival of doubts as to the
whereabouts of the Cape Verde squad
ron caused a renewal of anxiety as to
the Oregon. The ship was at Bahala
at last accounts and is believed to
have started a day or two ago up the
Brazilian coast to join Sampson's
squadron in the West Indies. She will
have to make a run of 3,000 miles,
which will occupy the Oregon about 10
days only, as she is in fine fettle and
averaged 13 knots an hour on the ions
rim around from San Francisco. How
ever it is believed that Admiral Samp
son is as well posted as anyone in
Washington as to the conditions ex
isting in the West Indies, and he
doubtless will do whatever is neces
sary in his judgment to safeguard tho
ship in her run up the coast.
RELIEF FOR DEWEY.
The Cruiser Charleston Will Start For
Manila at Once.
WASHINGTON, May 12.—The navy
department has decided to have the
cruiser Charlestown start at once on
its relief mission to Admiral Dewey's
fleet at Manila. The orders are to
start just as soon as it is possible to
get the ammunition and stores aboard,
and she will leave without waiting to
convoy the City of Pekin and the other
ships loaded with supplies. The order
to the commandant of the navy yard
at Mare island is to put on board the
Charleston all the ammunition she
will carry so long as her steaming ca
pacity is not retarded. It is the under
standing here that at least 150 tons of
ammunition can be put on board. By
extraordinary efforts on the part of
the authorities here all the powder,
shot and shell requisite for this relief
expedition have been assembled at San
Francisco already. The ammunition

Ari :, • Dei'- y's fleet mount S-lnch j

0v.,i... la the hurried departure of
the Charlestown it is not expected
that she will take any considerable j
number of troops these will follow la
ter. She has a crew of about 300 men, ;
and this probably will be augmented i
by a marine guard of a few hundred |
men. The Charleston probably will I
ijave to stop at Honolulu to recoal.
ARE NOW REGULARS.

WASHINGTON, May 12.—Reports j
received at the war department show a j

ing made in th-a mustering in of the

Another Kxpedltiou About Iteady to Sail
TAMPA, Fla., Ma> 12.—There is good
reason to believe that inside of 24 hours
another expedition with the same pur
pose and destination as that of th< j
Gussif?, which left here loaded with
arms and ammunition and supplies for j
the Cuban insurgents, will slip fror i
Port Tampa. The Florida, one of the i

ernment for use as a transport, has I

pleted. The boat is lying at the dock
with full steam up and no one is al
lowed on board.

An Offer Declined.
WASHINGTON, May 12.—The navy
department felt obliged to decline the
offer made by some wealthy New York
gentlemen, headed by O. H. P. Bel
mont, to build and equip a torpedo
boat for the use of the government
during the war. Possibly the declina
tion was brought about through the
condition attached to the /offer, that
the boat should be commanded by Mr.
Belmont, for without the least reflec
tion upon that gentleman the naval
officials have been obliged to decline
to establish the precedent of appoint
ing civilians to commands in this way.
