Price 26 Cents, PREPARED BY THEiTHOMPSON HEKB TEA CO. t NEW YORK. Washington. May 30.—At 12:30 o'clock Monday morning the navy department ecuived a dispatch from Commodore Schley announcing definitely that he. had located Admiral Cervera's Cape Verde squadron In the bay of Santiago de Cuba. The commodore states that he has seen and recognized the vessels' of the Spanish fleet. While the naval officials have been morally certain for several days that Cervera's squadron was in the harbor of Santiago, the official announcement from Commodore Schley was received by the officers on duty at the department with intense satisfaction. Assurance is now doubly sure that the Spanish fleet is bottled up and that the cork is In the bottle. It is not believed that Admiral Cervera will attempt to escape from the predicament in which he now finds himself, as such a course would surely result in the destruction of his vessels and the loss of many lives precious to Spain. May Blow Up His Fleet. The suggestion is made, however, that the Spaniard may blow up Kis ships rather than have them fall into the hands of Schley, as they certainly wiil if they remain in the harbor. The definiteness of Commodore Schiey's dispatch would indicate that he has effected a landing near Santiago and made a personal investigation of the harbor. It would be impossible from the entrance to the bay definitely to see and recognize the Spanish vessels, but by effecting a landing at some point on either sifle of the entrance a vantage point could be gained, very likely, from which the entire harbor could be examined. In all probability Commodore Schley or one of his trusted officers has successfully performed this hazardous undertaking in order to obtain tha valuable information contained in his dispatch. Inviision of Cuba Probably Imminent. What effect the certainty that Cervera is practically helpless will hav3 upon the plans of the administration with reference to the invasion of Cuba can only be conjectured. The transportation of land forces to the island, It is understood, was delayed because of the uncertainty concerning- the loca.- tion of the Spanish squadron. If that understanding is correct the probaility of an early invasion of Cuba is strong. It is not unlikely that the movement of troops which has been delayed from time to time, will begin this week, and ihat before the end of the week the United States forces will have obtained a substantial foothold upon Cuban soil.

Neb., May SO.—Go\'err,or Holcomb Saturday made a formal tender of the regiment of troops now being recruited by William J. Bryan to the soc- leiary of war.

Sfl&ngviitrr Utah, May SO.—Two men entered the Spriugville bank at 10 a. m. Saturday and at the point of a pistol compelled the cashier to hand over $4,- UOO. The robbers then mounted their horses and disappeared. A large posse was immediately organized and started in pursuit.

The posse returned'the fire, killing one of the robbers and compelling the other to surrender. Half of. the stoien money was recovered. Minnesota and Illinois regiments, and that the percentage of sickness among these regiments is very small and inconsequential. The health of the camp, considering the conditions, is remarkably good and it is believed that aside from the usual slight complaints incident to the season, the worst of it is now over with the men who have made such a radical change in temperature, water and diet. Three Death* Take Place Sunday. There were three deaths yesterday, as follows: Pierce Collyer, aged IS, Company H, Fourteenth Minnesota, of Beaver Palls, from pneumonia, contracted In carnp before reaching Chickamauga; Harry O, Burnham, of Lynn.

May 30.—A specialdispatch to The Tribune says: Orders have at last gone forward to Major General Shatter at Tampa to embark the greater portion of his corps, including- all the regular and a. few of the most efficient volunteer regiments on board, the transports gathered at that place, and the aggressive military movement which has htrn «?o frequently predicted and as often delayed for one cause or another will be an accomplished fact before the end of this week. The strongest units of .Admiral Sampson's reorganized so.uadr.in will cunvoy the expedition anci cover its landing at a point now definitely designated.' Simultaneously the most rigid censorship of press dispatches that has so far b-^en undertaken by the government will be put into operation at Tare pa and Key West, and no message relating to :lie movements of troops or ships, or ia any way spculating upon the expedition, \vi!! be permitted on the wires. If this means of preventing publication of Information which wouid be exceedingly valuable to Sp<!.in is not t'ully successful the censorship will be promptly ex- u-nded to the mails. It can be confidently asserted that beyond the secretary of war and the secretary of the r.avy the president will permit no civilian to enjoy his confidence in this matter ur.ti! a landing or. foreign territory shall have been actually accomplished, and General Shafter himself will have sealed orders, whose contents will be known only to General Miles and General Corbin until the expedition is safely at seal Admiral Sampson's sole instructions will be to g-uard the expedition and to co-operate with General Shatter under the latter'g direction. 1'rime-Guest Case at aa End. Des Moines, la.. May 30.—The supreme court has brought the Prime- Guest National Guard controversy to an end, allowing the decision of the lower court in favor of Prime to be affirmed by operation of law, as the court was tied t'n the case and could not agree.

Washington, May ',W.— Adjutant Cortin said that it had been definitely decided to use about 50,000 of the volunteers to be raised under the new call in filling out deficient regiments already organized under the old tall. It would take about that number, he thought, to till each company up to the maximum limit of 106 men. The remaining 25,000 would be organized into regiments of three battalions each and distributed among the states and territories in exactly the same proportion as under the first call. The cavalry, however, would bt- atvepted and only a very limited number of artillery.
