- to liegin Inside of
a Week from Santiago.
Washington, July 21. Arrange
ments practically were concluded by
the government last night for the
transportation of the Spanish prison
ers iit Santiago from Cuba to Spain.
The contract was awartled to the
Spanish Trans-Atlantic Co., represent
ed by .1, M. Ceballos <£- Co., of New
York. The company agrees to carry
the prisoners from Cuban ports to
Spain at the rate of S2O tor each en
listed man and $55 for each commis
sioned officer, subsistence to lie fur
nished by the company on the army
ration basis, as provided for in the
government's advertisement for bids.
The award provides also that the com
pany shall have five ships at Santiago
in nine days from to-day, two in 17
days from to-day and enough to com
plete the transportation of the prison
ers in 21 days.
Three days ago Col. ffecker, in
charge of the transportation of troops
in the quartermaster general's depart
ment of the army, went tw New York
to consult with shipping companies
concerning the transportation of the
Spanish troops surrendered at San
tiago. Bids which he had previously
advertised for were opened yesterday
at the army building in New York.
Col. Ileeker returned to Washington
last evening and had a conference
with Secretary Alger, Quartermaster
General Luddington and Adjt. Gen.
The bids of the several companies
were considered, that of the Spanish
Trans-Atlantic Co. finally being ac
cepted, as in all resoeets it was re
garded as the best made. On the basis
of 24,000 enlisted men and 1,000 offi
cers it will cost the government, $535,-
000 to transport the prisoners. The
ships will fly the colors of Spain and
will be manned probably entirely by
It was remarked as one of the curi

IS GEN. GARCIA DEAD?
The Famous Cuban Leader 1- Heported tn
Have Iteen Shot l>etalls are l.a<-klu£.
New York, July 21. —A Kingston,
Jamaica, cable to the Evening Post
says: "Cubans arriving from Siboney
report the death of Gen. Garcia. They
make a mystery of it, saying that it
should not be known in Cuba yet or
in the United States for reasons of
state and give no particulars except
that he was shot."
New York. July 21. —The last word
directly received by the Cuban junta
in this city from Garcia was dated
before Santiago, July 11. It stated
that he was well and that the progress
of events was satisfactory. At that
time Garcia was west of Santiago,
guarding the approaches from expect
ed reinforcements for the city.
Horatio S. Rubens, counsel to the
junta, when given the information
contained in the Post's dispatch, said
that news of Garcia's death had not
been received at the junta, but that
at best communication with the Cu
bnn forces in the field was irregular.
"I am greatly surprised," he said,
"but I do not find it hard to credit the
"During the assault on Santiago,
Garcia was in the west with his com
mand. with.the special duty of inter
cepting reinforcements and cutting
off the retreat of the Spanish soldiers.
"When the city fell, his duty there
was at an end. The attack on Man
zanillo was then planned. Manwin
illo lies to the west, and it is. there
fore, probable that Shatter detailed
Garcia's command to cut off reinforce
ments there. Ilolguin lies near Man
zanillo and was garrisoned by a con
siderable force, as Ihe American gen
eral must have known. It is not un
likely that Garcia and his men came
into conflict with a body of Spanish
soldiery bound from Ilolguin for Man
Course of Cuban War Leaders.
Washington, July 21.—Sena** Que
seda and other representatives of the
Cuban junta consulted yesterday with
officials of the war department. The
United States officials were assured
that there was no dissatisfaction with
the management of affairs in Cuba so
far as the Cuban representatives were
concerned, and that if Gen. Garcin and
other Cubans operating about San
tiago were not in harmony with the
United States authorities there, it
arose from a misunderstanding of the
president's proclamation and of the
intentions of the United States gov
ernment. The Cubans at Santiago, it
was stated, probably thought the ac
tion of Gen. Shaffer meant the con
tinuation of Spanish rule and Spanish
authority. It being well understood
here that such was not the case, it
was the belief of the Cuban represent
atives that when the matter was
made plain to the Cuban officers in
the field, they would acquiesce in the
action of the United States and render
the United States army hearty sup

Few of the gallant soldiers in tli«
United States army are able to look
back over a career so varied and so full
of useful activities as that of llenry
C. Corbin, the [(resent adjutant gen
eral. Inheriting from his patriot an-r
cestors an ardent spirit of American
ism he determined early in life to de
vote himself to the service of his coun
try, and since he left his father's farm,
a hardy, untrained but ambitious lad,
he has known no other calling- than
that of a soldier. At the first summons
to arms in IStil, young Corbin
down his farming implements and,
with godspeed from a loyal father, he
hastened to enroll himself among the
union volunteers. Up to that period
he had spent 19 > ears on the paternal
farm in Clermont county, ()., where
he was born in September, 1842.
Although he enlisted as a private,
Corbin speedily rose to the rank ol
first lieutenant of the Eighty-third
Ohio infantry. He went immediately
to the front and soon afterward ha
was transferred to the Seventy-ninth
Ohio, in which he served for more than
a year. In the fall of 1803 he whs ap
pointed major of the Fourteenth
United States colored infantry, and
much of the high reputation attained
by that regiment for discipline and ef
fective service was due to his efforts
as a drillmaster and leader, lie was
successively promoted to be lieuten
ant colonel and colonel of that regi
ment, and in March, 1865, he received
the honorary brevet of brigadier gen
eral. Throughout the war his com
mand was frequently engaged at im
portant points, and not only did he
win personal distinction as a brave
and cool-headed officer, but the regi
ment was cordially commended in of
ficial Teports. The young officer
earned his first brevet for "gallant and

After the Fourteenth infantry was
mustered out of service, early in the
spring oi 1800, Col. Corbin was at onto
commissioned a second lieutenant in
the regular United States army and
attached to the Seventeenth infantry
His ability as a tactician and an ex
ecutive officer soon secured his ad>
vaneemvnt to the rank of captain, and
in November, ISG9, at the age of
years, he was transferred, with that
rank, to the Twenty-fourth infantry.
In 1877 Capt. Corbin —more famil
ly known even then as Gen. Corbin —
was detached as military attache to
the president, and during the inter
esting period of his service at the ex
ecutive mansion he developed not only
an admirable degree of tact, but those
sterling social qualities which resulted
in the establishment of strong and
lasting friendships with some of the
most distinguished soldiers and states
men of his time. His relations with
Presidents Hayes and Garfield were of
the most cordial and confidential char
acter, and Presidents Harrison and
McKinlcy have each held him in high
esteem as a valued friend. lie was
with President Garfield when the lat
ter was shot, in the Pennsylvania rail
road station ir. Washington, in July,
1881, and he was one of the sorrow
stricken family group that stood by
the assassinated president's bedside
at Klberon when death came a few
President Haves appointed Capt.
Corbin to his staff with the rank of
major in ISSO. and also made him an
assistant adjutant general. At various
times he served on the staffs of Gens.
Hunt, Sehofield, Terry, Cooke and
Miles, proving himself at all times a
most trustworthy and valuable aid to
his chief. He .vas with Gen. Miles in
the exciting and successful cimpaigii
against Geroriimo, and also during the
Pine Ridge campaign, which continued
through 1890 and 1891. Subsequently
while with Gen. McCook in Arizona he
was vested with the personal direction
of and responsibility for the campaign
against the Moquis. and he dischargee
his obligations with customary
promptness and thorougness. About
this time he was promoted to be lieu
