WASJU.NXJTOK, April 12.-- After the examination of some minor witnesses the court of inquiry heard the testimony of General Shatter, who deta, led the main events connected with the Santiago expedition in narrative form. The quaar tity of supplies taken was largely fe- termioed by the capacity of the ships. He bad no discretion in the matter of rations. He took what was sent to him by the commissary department. It was utterly impracticable to take beef on the hoof. He regarded it as absurd to consider. Looking back at the campaign, be still considered it impracticable. Had they encountered an active enemy they might have lost a beef herd »nd in any event it would have been imperatively necessary to take the same amount of salt and cured meat to provide against such a possible contingency. After the troops were landed, he ordered all troops forward with three days rations. The meat ration wa* not specified. Each command determined whether it 'should be bacon or roast beef. He Heard No Complaint*. He heard no complaints of fte canned roast beef between the time of landing and the surrender. He heard no complaints until after his return from Cuba. Naturally in such a ^ma*" it was not pleasing. He ate It every day himself. The troops were furnished with foU rations of meat, hard bread. coffee and sugar. There were one or two days when the ftdl ration of coffee and sugar did not reach them, but it was made up the next day. The question of supplying the troops was the difficult one, the rest was easy. There were no complaints from Washington. The health of the troops was fairly good up to the tine of the surrender. The sick report July 16 would show but 1,000 men side, but the troops had been weakened, and after the surrender went down rapidly. The first case of yellow fever was reported upon the sixth. He only recalled one complaint against the refrigerated beef; he thought that came from the Seventh or Kinth infantry.

TOO MAXY POLITICIANS. Cnha Ha* the Uaivenal Complaint hi Severe Form. MEXICO, Hex, April la.--The resident Cubans for the most part favor the annexation of the island of Cuba to the United States, and the Spanish capitalists who have left Cuba and taken up residence here are of the same opinion. The Mexican Herald says on this point: Cuba, like Spain and like the United States, has its class of professional politicians, who are a menace to its peace and tranqnility. This mob, hungry for salaries, are threatening all sorts of deviltry if they are not provided for. All of this will have a familiar sound at Washington and even the politicians there must have sentimental clamors and fraternal feeling for the clamorous claimants of Cuba, but what Cuba wants for the sake of the hard working peasants and property owners is a long inrper county, were pottonea D; eating wild parsnips.
