TUCKER, TAILOR, «* & Broadw>y - Washington. May 11.—It is hard to tell whether the naval officers were relieved or disappointed by tht news that came late yesterday afternoon to both the navy and state departments to tho effect that the Spanish flying squadron had arrived at Cadiz. Spain. The safety of the Oregon from attack is nmv completely assured, and the way is clear for military operations in Cuba, without running the risk of having the occupy- in:: army's line -,if communication cul off. On the other hand, it is believec that no enduring peace can be secured until the Spanish navy has been destroyed, and it now appears that to do rhi* our sailors must make up their minds to go after the Spaniards, a task very much more difficult than that o meeting them near our own shores. I was suggested by some of the member; of the war board that there was jus a possibility that the Spanish squadron might, make a quick passage into thi Pacific through the Suez canal and at tack Dewey at Manila.

It "also has cause' a complete change in the concentratio: plans. Time is now believed to be ti great factor. There is no longer op portunity to indulge in extensive drill ing ar,d practice manoeuvering. Th regular army troops do not need these and are to be thrown at once into th fray. Many of the regiments of the Na tiunal Guard which are entering th volunteer service are felt to be suffi t-iently trained from a military point ot view u> follow the regulars immediately, and Hie department indicated-its purpose yesteiTjpy of dispatching these volunteer troos directly to the gulf coast for shiment. instead of sending them to Chickamauga. Transports Are at Hand. The quartermaster general has al- reaoy gotten under charter twenty- seven merchant steamers for the transport of troops, and roughly speaking these should carry about 20.000 me:i. Others are being procured as rapidly as possible. The pian of the war department is to have these vessels assemble at the different gulf ports — Tampa, Mobile, Xew Orleans and Galveston— to take on troops which will be sent there. The navy department is expected to furnish convoys for these transports, which would be absolute!}' helpless against a Spanish attack. At this point there are signs of friction. First, the transports will be obliged to await Admiral Sampson's return, in order to secure proper convoy, and secondly, the navy objects very decidedly to undertaking the task of convoying a number of transports. It insists that to assure the safety of the convoy of the troops all the transports should be gathered in one fleet to start from Tampa, and the 5,avy is likely to prevail in this.

The signal jorps has also been ordered to remain here until further order_s. The medical corps of each regiment was yesterday provided with medical supplies for sixty days. The medical force is to be regularly increased from fifteen to twenty- five mt-n. as soon as the regiments have been increased to their war strength. All recruits will be ordered to report to Tampa, New Orleans and Mobile. A large number arrived .yesterday and were provided with the necessary equipments. There will be very little delay as transporting the troops, all the railroads having provided the necessary cars In expectation of hurry orders. The oading of supply trains began yesterday afternoon and a ilumber are ready for shipment. Washington. May 11.—Friday morning the commanding: general of the United States army. Major General Miles, will have assembled his staff, around him at Tampa, Fla. ,He leaves Washington tonight. Unless present plans are changed the general will go with the first expeditionary force to Cuba. The arrangements for the move upon Cuba are being- hastened with' such energy that it is. evident to any observer that the beginning of the campaign is imminent. It is expected here that within a week the first-troops will be on iheir way from the United States to Cuba. ^__ BKfiJXXlXG TO TAI.K OF PEACE. Foreign Diplomats Think It About Time for Spain to Cllml) Down. Washington. May 11.—As a result of the Spanish reverse at Manila leading members of the diplomatic corps, repre- :enting some of the most influential jf the great powers of. Europe, have unofficially exchanged views on the op- portuneness of a movement, dictated by the most friendly spirit and in " e interest of peace, towards urging upon Spam the futility of further prosecuting the war and inducing her to sue for peace on the basis of the relinquish.- ment of Cuba, the promise of a war indemnity, and the occupation of Manila by Admiral Dewey until the war indemnity is paid. It was stated last night by one of the most influential members of the diplomatic corps, an ambassador, that such a step by Spain, v.as the logical result of the crushing Spanish defeat at Manila. The military authorities connected with the foreign establishments here pay that Admiral Montejo and his entire staff of officers ought to be, and undoubtedly will be. court martialed for allowing themselves to be surprised by Admiral Dewey's fleet. One of these official? said: "There is not a naval power in'Europe which would not immediately order a court martial after suth a humiliating surprise, followed by such terrible results of negligence. To be taken by surprise is unpardonable. All of the reports show tha.t the Spanish officers had no proper lookouts, had no searchjislv.s. no safeguards against surprises." Only Place It Had to Go. London. May 11.—There is no confirmation of the report that the Spanish fleet from the Cape Verde islands has returned to Cadiz: but it is generally regarded as the most likely movement to be made. The question is g-enerally asked: "What possible use bas Spain for continuing- a hopeless struggle?" as u is considered next to impossible that she has any alternative plan or that the retreat of the squadron hides some •strategic design. receivers Ordered t*> "File a Report.

Washington, May 11.—Rfports received at Adjutant General Corbin's office up to yesterday morning show that S.J.3D4 men had been mustered hv.o the volunteer army of the United States. It Is probable, however, by this time that the actual number mustered in is about 40.000 in round numbers. Lieutenant Colonel Roosevelt said farewell yesterday to the officers and :lerks of the navy department. It is safe ;o say that not one of the employes, from the highest to the lowest, declined the invitation which was sent around to all the bureaus to call at the assistant secretary's office and say good-bye to Roosevelt. There were many expressions of regret at his departure, and the whole affair was lacking in that perfunctory character which »> often attaches to ceremonies of the kind. Some of the employes of the . departments united in presenting Roosevelt a very handsome silver mounted cavalry cabre, which he displayed with pride upon bis desk to all of his callers. WaitillST '" Hour IVoin His Colonel. The new lieutenant colonel will leave Washington for San Antonio upon telegraphic advices from Colonel Wood, commanding the regiment, which are expected within' a day or two at the latest. Colonel Roosevelt is uncertain whether his "rough riders" will be in readiness to go with the first expedition to Cuba or not, the shipping of the equipment in time for them to join be- ir;g the chief obstacle in sight. Major General Joseph Wheeler is the first of the newly appointed major generals- to take the field. He spent his last day at the Capitol until his army service is endetl and left Wahisngton at 11 o'clock yesterday morning for Chattanooga to take his command. As to Hie I'liysiqiie of Officers. The war department officials authorize the statement that no orders have been issued to mustering officers directing them to accept all regimental officers of volunteer troops appointed by governors of states, regardless of physcial disqualifications. In a few cases, where governors were particularly anxious to commission certain officers who, ordinarily, would be rejected on the ground of physical disability, the mustering officers have been instructed to accept the services of the officers; but in each case a special dispensation has been required and a special notation of ana oeneral FItz Sinrmo'ru, commanding the First brigade, together with their staffs, are relieved from further duty at Camp Tanner since yem- terday and immediately returned to their home station. Milwaukee, May :i.—The Third rrjrt- jnent. has been ordered to Tampa, Fla.. instead ot" to Chickamauga. Governor Scofl«ld at aoon recived a telegram t» this effect from Secretary Alger.

May 11.—A very Urge percentage of the men being examined fail to pass, and from present prospects about 1.700 recruits will be needed to fill their places. Governor Pingree is now considering the advisability of beginning to number the regiments where the state left off in ths war of the rebellion. If this plan is carried nut Oulonel (Isrdiner's regiment will be called the Thirty-first volunteer infantry. The First regiment will not leave for Chk-kamauga before Fridayor Saturday.

The decision was reached after the receipt of a telegram LIEUTENANT COLONEL KOOSKVELT USU)IK» lilS COWBOYS. the disability has been made for the benefit of the government. Hereafter it will be difficult for the officers so accepted to secure a pension, as they will have to show clearly that the disability for which the pension may be asked was due to their service in the present war.

ATTK.M.I»T TO POISON- SOLDIERS. Water lit Ciimp -Mobile Improsiisit'od w«tl» Arsenic by Some Miscreant, Atlanta, May 11.—A special to The . onstiuition from Mobile says: A second dastardly attempt to poison the Infantry regiments at Camp Mobile has been made. Several days ago some soldiers found in the creek which runs alongside the grounds a sack filled with absorbent cotton, which had been saturated with arsenic and tied down beneath a rock which juts out into the stream at a point just above the place where the soldiers net their drinking water. By accident a trooper discovered the deadly trap, removed the sack. and upon the contents being revealed reported his find to the commanding officer. Strict orders were given not to mention the incident, and so the matter was hushed up. Since that day. however, the creek has been closely watched and vigilance was rewarded when Corporal Sullivan found a poison bag loaded with arser.ic and anchored down just as in the first instance. Spanish spies are known to be lurking in the neighborhood, where a number of Spaniards reside. They are all under strict scrutiny a.nd sensational disclosures are looked Cor No one doubts that agents of Spain are responsible^ —"•"> Medico-Psychologist* in Council. St. Louis.
