Jubilation, which lasted all night.
This morning there was a reaction of
feeling over a report that the Spanish
contemplated treachery and that they
were parleying slmnly to gain time.
Our commissioners to arrange peace—
Generals Wheeler and Lawton and
Lieut. Miley—went to the place of the
conference with many misgivings as to
The Spanish commissioners—General
Kzarlel, Colonel Fontaine and Mr. Ma
son, vice consul —were waiting. After a
pleasant greetimg the party sat down
and proceeded to business. The terms
of surrender are that the 20.000 refu
gees at Caney and Siboney ate to be
turned back Into the city. An Ameri
can Infantry patrol is to be posted In
the rounds surrounding the city and In
the country between the American cav
alry will patrol. Our hospital corps is
to give attention to any possible sick
and wounded among the Spanish sol
diers in Santiago. All the Spanish
troops in the province, except General
Lugue's 10.000 at Holguin, are to come
to the city to surrender. The guns and
defences of the city are to be turned
over to the Americans in good condi
tion. The Americans are to have full
use of the Juragua railway, which be
lcr.gs to the Spanish government. All
the Spaniards are to be conveyed home
by American secured transports with
the least possible delay and they are
permitted to take portable church prop
erty with them. This concession is in
teresting because at the first threat by
the Americans to bombard the city the
archbishops, priests and nuns came out
and demanded a safe convoy. They
v.ere told to go back and point out to
the Spanish the foolishness of further
resistance. The Spanish are to surren
der their arms.
They Are Hemmed and Hawed.
The conditions were lengthily discuss

Result of the Surrender.
By the terms of the surrender twen
ty-five thousand :< anlards lay down
their arms, and submit to being taken
home—a thing unheard at in history.
While he is satisfied that the surren
der is genuine, General Shatter will
take no chances. He directed General
Garcia, after the signing of the agree
ment, to look out for any Spanish re
The returning of the Spaniards to
Spain is a serious proposition on ac
count of the scarcity of transports, but
the difficulty will be overcome somehow
and ttelr removal begun at once. The
only soldiers in Santiago province not
included in the surrender are one thou
sand at Holguin under the command
of General Luque, but I hey have no
food trains and ore not feared by Gen
eral Shafter. General Shafter declared
today that intended to keep some of
the Spanish authorities who belong to
tbe autonomist government in charge
of Santiago of ter the evacuation. The
Cubans declare this to be n mistake.
They say the officials are unfriendly to
the United States, and if they remain
in power the Cubans will not enter
Santiago and live under rule.
General Garcia will confer tomorrow
with Generr.i Shafter In regard to the
Spanish officials. The American offi
cers think that In case of an approval
of the terms of the surrender by the
Madrid government it will take a
fortnight to embark the soldiers. In
the meantime the American troops will
remain in the hills-where Santiago will
be properly looked after.
Not Until Fall.
The doctors adyise that to prevent fe
ver the larger part cf our troops should
be sent home until fall. They ear the
climate here. The officials are seriously
considering the country Bade of Guan

occurred, owing to a misunderstanding
of whot was said at a personal inter
view between Shafter and Torai at
noon. At that time, our interpreter,
translating the language General To
rai had given General Shafter, Miles
and Wheeler distinctly to understand
that Blanco had consented that the
commissioners should have plenary
powers to negotiate the terms of sur
render. Something was said about no
tification to tbi- Madrid government,
but General Shafter insisted that the
capitulation had actually- -been agreed
to and no further consent of the Mad
rid government was required.

afternoon those in behalf of General
Torai combatted at once the Idea tfcut
capitulation had, In fact, actually tak
en place. The consent of the Madrid
government, they Insisted, was still
necessary; hut. at the same time, they
claimed strongly that it would tor
forthcoming. This was extremely un
satisfactory to our commissioners, who,
clung tenaciously to the understanding
that General Shafter had received ear
lier in the day. Finally, with the ques
tion still open, they proceeded to the
consideration of the preliminaries..
Captain Miley had drawn up thirteen
articles of a general nature end these
were submitted, to General Total per
sonally. He made a strrng appeal that
the word "capitulation” be used in
stead of "surrender." ond his army be
allowed to march out, the officers with
side arms and the men with small
arms. He said that the army would
afterwards be sent to Spain either on
the same ships with the troops or on
His Further Remark.
General Torai further remarked that
he expected our commissioners, as a
brave and chivalrous people, wotild not
humiliate the army or make It appear
to have been vanquished. As brave
men, his men desired to go home with
honor. They simply yielded to superior
force and they prefer dying to going
home without honor. Our commission
ers could not resist the appeal, but said
it lay beyond the terms laid down by
the government, and they could only
recOmmend the matter to, Washington.
A recess was taken until 9:30. The
commmlsslonera returned, at that hour
and the articles were again gone over.
Various changes in the verbiage,which
tended only t® soften the,sound of the
tefms, without (affecting the sense,were
prdpesed by Ohr Spaniards and accept

Wheeler suggxsted that the good faith

of the Spanish commissioners tic tested.
' Ail the articles were read and each
commissioner was asked If they were
satisfactory. When they replied in the
affirmative, General Wheeler asked
them to affix their signatures. This
they appeared reluctant to do, but all
signed and the commissioners adjourn
ed until morning. The present munici
pal authorities will continue In control
of the city until the Spanish troops
have embarked. The Spanish troops
from other prrtnts will be embarked at

claims the distinction of having fired
the first shot in the naval battle off

a thirteen-inch shell froM his vessel
went clear through one of the torpedo
bouts and I hen exploded, sending the
boat to tbe bottom. Towards the end
of the battle, he writes, when it was
seen that tbe Vlscaya was almost de

Remember the Maine. It was then
run into the breech and the gun care
