Madrid, May 20.--There were two sensational reports here last night—one that Cervera's squadron had arrived oft Havana and another that it had ar- ived at Santiago de Cuba. [Santiago de Cuba is the capital of antiago province and is finely situated n a bay on the southeastern coast of he island, about eight miles inland. Tha larbor, although one of the finest in ?uba, is difficult of access, owing to tha narrowness of the channel. The en- rance to the harbor is protected by latteries for a distance of more than a mile. Within the last month the har- 3or has been mined. It is stated that Admiral Sampson has been directed to ut the cables entering the port, and if .n engagement has taken place this is he probable cause.] iUse Logan Milling Go's PATENT AND 1 » T T T~* y^v i if \ r T~* T :Flours are the Purest, and .'•highest grade ou the Mkt AUTOMATIC The "Domestic" Office.

Washington, May 20.—With every dis- osition on the part of the executive to lake the present war short, sharp and lecisive, it is beginning to be realized hat the shortcomings of our military ervice are so many that delays are in- vitable and that much work will be necessary to put the nation in efficient jghting shape. Every day brings forth omeweak spot that has to be strength- ned, or some hidden defect, such as he discovery at this late moment that very regular army officer who accepted volunteer appointment would forfeit ,is commission in the regulars and so ,ecome liable to be let out of the ser•ice entirely at the end of the war. .'ew officers cared to risk the future in hat way. so a rush was made to con- •ress, which passed the necessary cor- ective legislation. Sliort of Military Equipment. 1 Again it has been found that the equipment of the army, small as it is in comparison with the great army of the rebellion, is sadly lacking. Nearly a month after the formal declaration of war the war department yesterday purchased a number of shelter tents, and it las just secured the hammocks that experts say are essential to existence in !uba. These preparations involve de- ay, so that it is not'remarkable that n spite of the herculean efforts of the officers of the army no positive start ms yet been made towards its goal by :he army of occupation. Probably it is his fact, rather than any unreadiness m the part of the navy that causes the :ampaign to drag. Job Is Gradually Developing. To maintain the army of 200,000 men for six months will cost $30,000,000, ac- oording to estimates prepared by Paymaster General Stanton, and the leading officials are beginning to fear that hostilities may run along beyond this period. The reason is the growing conviction on the part of some of the offi- .-rrs that they must not reckon on any substantial assistance from the Cuban rebels in this campaign, and moreover must meet the Spaniards in Cuba in their strongest sphere—that of the defensive. Naval authorities are relieved of a good deal of embarrassment by the consent of the French authorities at Martinique to allow the scouting vessel Harvard to remain in St. Pierre until her repairs are completed. It was supposed at first that she would be allowed only seven days and at the end of that time would be forced out to risk attack at the hands of some ambushed Spanish :ruiser or torpedo boat. Still No Ne'.vs of the Fleets. The absence of official news of any character from the fleets at the navy department grave the widest field for speculation, ami all sorts of stories were afloat as to the whereabouts of the ves- and the imminence of an engagement. The report that came from Madrid of the bombardment of Santiago received cr-?dencfi, inasmuch as it seemed , to show that General Greely, the Chief siena! officer, had set in motion the machinery of the navy to carry out his de^ purpose of cutting the cables that afford the last connection between Havana and the outside world and thus i=nlnt? Blanco. It is not believed that the bcmbardr'.ent amounted to anything mors than this. __ WAS A BUSY DAY AT CHICKAMAUGA, Loaded trith Volunteers Block tfee Si<U3K> at the Park. Chickamauga' National Park, Ga-. move. Tliere were at tne park" at i o'clock last night 24,000 men. Yesterday •was the busiest day at the park since the volunteers began to arrive. a.nd the ;oroes of the various supply departments were taxed to the utmost to dispose of t'ae bulsness promptly and without confusion. The quartermaster's department received all the supplies needed in th» matter of tents, uniforms, ammunition, food supplies, etc.. but n» ordnance for artillery or guns for the unarmed volunteers. The water supply Is holding satis- factory.Aut a large number ofaddition- al wells ar» being sunk, and as a guarantee against a possibility of adeficiency it is stated that a recommendation has been sent to Washington urging that a standpipe be erected on the field and that water be supplied from the cele- brajed Crawfish spring, which flows several millions of gallons of water daily, and that this water be piped to the camps that may be lacking in supply. .Ample storage room for the 2.500.)00 rations recently ordered here from Chicago was secured in Chattanooga yesterday, and these food supplies are now nearly stored, so that orders for regimental supplies are promptly filled. The following commands among others arrived yesterday and were assigned to camp: Twelfth Minnesota, Colonel Bobleter, 1,033 officers and men: Twenty-first Kansas, Colonel Fitch, 1,027 strong. General Brooke late yesterday afternoon gave out the information that he bad been notified that three corps o£ the volunteer army would be mobilized and organized at th,"r> point, which means the concentration here of at least 80.000 men. It is stated, however, that one of the corps may be sent further south as soon as it is in condition to move. At least two of the corps are to be drilled and prepared for service at this point. It is announced that General Brooke will b& in command of the First corps, General Wade of the Second and General Wilson of the Sixth, all to be organized and equiped here. NEARLY ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND. Actual Number of Volunteers Now Mastered Has Readied That Figure. Washington, May 20.—General Corbln said last night that the number of volunteers mustered into the service had now passed the 100,000 mark. At 10 o'clock the actual number reported mustered in was 99,273.

Those regiments which started yesterday afternoon or last evening are the Third, Sixth, Twelfth and Thirteenth Pennsylvania: Fifth Maryland, First New Jersey, Sixty-Fifth New York, First Missouri. Second Georgia, Thirty-Second Michigan and battery A, of Illinois.

Queen and Crescent, Southern and Florida Central and Pen- nsula railroads. Prior to the departure the officers of the Thirty-Second ; were dined by the officers of the Thirty-Second, whose organization is also about completed.

The night operator was in the station building when the storm struck it and' had a narrow escape. A train of loaded freight cars standing on the sidetrack at Pennington was literally demolished, the storm seeming to have taken the time to go the entire length of it, tearing the cars from their heavy trucks and breaking them into splinters. The pine forest about the town was laid as low as standing wheat in a rain storm, covering the railroad tracks wth timber and various debris, requiring derricks to remove it. Destroys a Logging Camp. The school house in the town of Pell- can was destroyed and several buildings were unroofed. In the town of Berlin the sawmill of Curtis & Yale was unroofed and lumber scattered half a mile distant.

FULL LIST OF THE IOWA DEAD. Property Loss Will Beach Half a Million Dollars—SLorm Incidents. Des Moines. la.. May 20.—A special from Cedar Rapids says: Further details of the fearful cyclone which swept through the northeastern part of Cedar county, the southeastern part of Jones county, the northern parr of Clinton county, and touching the southern part of Jackson county, show that it was even more destructive than at first reported.

The property loss will be enormous, reaching in the neighborhood of $400,000 or S500.000. There were many places where not a building or fence of any kind was left standing. Cattle, horses and hogs have been killed by the hundreds. Many farmers lost all their earthly possessions, and in some instances the individual losses will reach as high as $10,000. The storm was more in the nature of a torando. the path varying from forty rods to half a mile in width. Thf fury and force of the storm may be judged when it is stated that from one farm house near Deimar an iron safe weighing 1.100 pounds was picked up and carried several hundred feet. \ special from Deimar. where the storm was the severest, says: "A barren tract c.f land in a diagonal direction with bare trees, broken timbers of houses and heaps of ruins, where yesterday dwelt order and happiness, mark the dark pathway of terror for miles.

Dr. Jackson spoke, earnestly of the condition of the missionary work, of talents hid in napkins and of "the cries of church members scattered as sheep without a shepherd."
