that the city surrendered uncondition

The information contained In Consul
Wildman's brief measage aroused in
tense interest, but created no surprise
among those who received It. For two
or three days news of the fall of Manila
haa been expected. The last dispatches
received from ' Admiral Dewey 'and
General Merrltt indicated that It was
their purpose to force a surrender of
the city as aoon aa posaible.
It is believed that thev Joined In a

Who Will Restore Order lia Cuba aii
Washington. Aug. 16. Today's Post
says: The announcement of the per
sonnel of the military commissions for
Cuba and Porto Rico may now be ex
pected at any time. The president haa
practically determined upon the mill
tary and naval officers who will com
pose the commission. It Is probable
that the names will be as foHows:
Cuban Commission. Major General
J. T. Wade, Major General M. C.
Butler and Admiral W. T. Sampson.
Porto Rloo Commission. Major Gen
eral John R. Brooke, Major General
Theodore Schawn and Admiral Win
field S. Schley.
It will be noticed that the name of
General Fltshugh Lee does not appear
In the list of the Cuban commissioners,
The omission la not unintentional. Gen
eral Lee waa originally slated for
place on the commission, but wilt not
serve, owtng to his desire too remain at
the head of his army corps. It Is ex
pected that this corps, the Seventh,
will eventually be sent to Cuba, and
In that event General Lee will go to the
Island at Hs head, preferring this po
sltlon to a commlselonershlp.

Washington, Aug. 16. The subsist
ence department of the army will have
plenty of supplies ready to forward to
Cuba In case It Is found that the peo
ple there must be supplied from the
United States. There are supplies at
Tampa and at many other points near
enough to- the seaboard to load avail
able transports when Information
reachea this government that they will
be needed. It la, of course, an aasump
tlon only so far that supplies must be
sent to Cuba. Since hostilities began
no information has reached this gov
ernmerrt concerning the reconcentra
does or any other portion of the peo
ple of Cuba within the Spanish lines,
That they are destitute Is Inferred from
the conditions which existed previous
to the war.

Madrid, Aug. 16. Duke Almodovar de
Rio has received an intimation that the
Cuban blockade has been raised and
cable communication restored. Numer
ous vessels are being prepared In Span

The next cabinet council will consider
the question of summoning the cortes.
Senor Sagasta, the premier, ia hope

upon this point. The news of peaca

ADVISE A 00UTIHU A5GE OF WAE.
At a Secret Meetlnar of Leaders, now
ever, at "Which General Garcia Waa
Preaenx, It Waa Decided That the'
Cuban Army Should Be Dtabanded.
Santiago de Cuba, Aug. 16. Trouble
with the Cubans la breeding. Their at
titude la one of sudden hostility to
wards Americans. The better class in
Cuba favor the annexation of the Isl
and to the United Statea and a majori
ty of the masses are ready and anx-
loua to work and accept the shelter
and protection afforded by an American
protectorate; but they are Influenced
by a certain class of rabid orators and
breeders of sedition and ' rebellion
against anything smacking of law and
Thla Inflammatory class demands
and urges the recognition of Cuba for
Cubans, and spurns all offers or sug
gestions tending to prosperity under an
American protectorate, and excltea
popular discontent This is exactly
the class that pushes itself most Into
evidence, and whose views and opin
ions are most overheard and published.
Their advice to the Cubana is to re
pudiate all offers of peace or a cessa
tion of hostilities, and to look upon an
armistice as an agreement between the
United Statea and Spain on their own
account, and not binding upon the free
and Independent state of Cuba, whose
liberating army not only repudiates
pacification, but will Ignore the armis
tice to the point of continuing to wage
war and shooting every Spaniard In
A wild rumor Is afloat to the effect
that the Cuban army will attack San
tiago and capture It, to the glory of
the Cuban arms, as soon aa the Ameri
can garrison ia weakened. This Is di
rectly traceable to the same source.
The influence exertad by audi a body
of men against law and order Is for
midable, and demands suppression
with an Iron hand. While still In em
byro, this Influence Is already felt
among certain classes, who refuse to
work or serve the government until a
clear statement of the freedom and In
dependence of their country Is made
A knowledge of this condition Is Im
perative to the moulding of the fu
ture policy and to explain whatever
harsh steps may be rendered necessary
In dealing with the Insurgents.
A secret meeting was held last night
at the palace between the commanding
pfflrers of the American army and the
Cuban leaders. The strictest secrecy
was maintained, but It can be nald with
good authority that General Garcia was
present. The Information obtained Is
to the effect that the Cuban situation
waa thoroughly reviewed, and that it
was resolved to disband the Cuban
army and that the United States should
pay the men off. This involves the
expenditure of $15,000,000, but It Is
most Important to the prosperity of
the Island, whose wealth Is entirely
agricultural, nobody, planter or farmer,
daring to cultivate his lands while
Insurgents bands are' In the Held raid
ing and burning.
DEATH IN THE STORM.
Eight Known Dead and Many Sh.ipp
and Cattle Killed.
Gary, S. D., Aug. 16. A terrlllc wind

came. Searching parties are looking
for the wife and children.
Thousands of dollars worth of prop
erty are destroyed and many cattle and
sheep were killed. The storm started
one mile northeast of Hutchinson's
farm and struck his house, driving It
through the barn. The Northwestern
railroad track Is torn up for some little
distance: telegraph poles aod snow
fences are down. The wounded are be
ing taken to Canby. The dead were
found on the prairie with their bodies
badly mangled and clothing nearly
stripped from them.

A POBOlt MTSTERT.
Scathe tat Detasrare From Bating;
CandT Sent From California.
Dover, Del., Aug. 16. Whatever may
se the final result of the Investigation
nto the cause of the deaths of Mrs. J.
P. Dunning and her sister, Mrs. J. D.
Deane. all the Indications at present
are that both women lost their Uvea by
arsenical poisoning taken In the candy
sent from Ban Francisco by a person at
present unknown. The funeral of both
the vlctlma took place yesterday from
the home of their father, Ex-Congressman
Pennington. Prior to the services
Coroner Walls began an Investigation.
Dr. Bishop, who attended the women
after they had been taken 111, gave It
as hie opinion that the deaths were due
to poisoned candy. No analysis of the
candy haa yet been made, but Mr. Pen
nington will place samples of It in the
hands of several expert chemists. On
the result of these tests he proposes to
have further action. Minute examina
tion of the box, wrapper and contents
haa only served to deepen the mystery
as to the Ideatlty of the sender.
Within the box waa . a common,
plain white handkerchief, with the price
mark, K cents, still on one corner. The
note signed "Mrs. C." Is written on
ruled white paper In lead pencil, and
the worda "With love for yourself and
baby" are written Jerkily and in an
entirely different hand from the super
scription, very like a woman's hand.
There are two klnda of chocolate candy
in the box. one hard and similar to a
confectioner's make, the other' soft,
with every appearance of being home
made. The Impression of Dr. Bishop
Is that the poison will be found In the
latter kind. Mr. Pennington bellevtw
that the box with pure candy was
purchased, after which It was opened
and the poisoned candy placed along
side with the good. He states It as his
firm belief that his daughters were In
tentionally poisoned, but thinks the
candy was only Intended for Mrs. Dun
ning and her baby. He states that he
will make everv effort to solve the
mystery surrounding the case.
