WASHINGTON, June 28.—The administration has finally come to a decision to send an American Squadron to th«s Spanish coast and into the Mediterranean. Several times since the war broke out rumors to this effect have circulated, but the pi-oject had not matured. It required the Spanish movement toward the Philippines by Camara's squadron to decide the navv department to adopt this bold stroke. BROGKE TO PORTO RICO. The department has selected Commodore Watson, now in command of the Havana blockading squadron, to strike the blow. A bulletin was posted stating that his squadron is to be designated ns the eastern squadron, and will be as follows: Flag-ship Newark, battleships Iowa and Oregon, cruisers Yosemite, Yankee and Dixie, colliers Scandia, Aberemla and Alexander. The three colliers are now at Newport News taking on conl. and it will take about a week for them to reach Sampson's fleet, whence the start will be made for Spain. The determination to send this squadron against Spain was the outcome of direct official advices reaching the state nnd navy departments ns to the progress of Admiral Camara's squadron. These advices give a list of the Spanish ships now ncaring the Suez canal. The official list is as follows: Pelayo, Carlos V, Audaz, Osccla, Proserpine, Patriota, Rapido, Buenos Ayrcs, Isla do Piiney, Colon, Covandonga and San Francisco. The additional information comes from official sources that this squadron is at Port Said and expects ,o take on board 3,000 tons of coal before entering the Suez canal. Such i heavy coaling will take some time. It discloses also that the admiral ex- sects to make a long sail and is doubt- ess headed for the Philippines, a point vhich the officials here doubted at first. tfrltt Be Military Goremor of the iBlund When It Id Captured. NEW YORK, July 1.—The Times Washington special says: The Porto Rican expedition, which is the next number on the war program after the surrender of Santiago, is to be led by Major General John R. Brooke, now commanding the first nrmy corps atChick- amanga, who will be made military governor of the island after its capture. Having provided for sending sufficient reinforcements to Shafter to insure his being able to take Santiago when he gets ready to movehis full army against it, the administration again is turning its attention to details of the invasion of Spain's other valuable island possessions in the West Indies, with a view of preparing to fall upon it the moment Linares and Corvera have capitulated. The plans have progressed so far that (Jen. Brooke has boon selected to command the array of invasion and has been ordered to get his corps, composed of twenty-seven regiments of volunteers, ready to move to Tampa within :i week or ten days From there they will be sent to Santiago, preparatory to the movement to San Juan, which will be msule from southeastern Cuba as a hnsc. The dcsigination of Brooke for the Porto Rieaii enterprise is in n coord with his own wishes. While Brooke's corps, including 30,000 men, i s destined for Porto Rico, it will be sent first to Santiago, which, as soon as the American army is in possession of it. will be made a base for the movement Porto Rico.

American Consul Buys Up All the Avnlliinlo Coal. WASHINGTON, July 3.—United States Consular Agent Uroadbent, at Port Said, lias just made a master stroke, which he reports to the department. While the Spanish ships were seeking permission of the Egyptian govern" ment to take coal at Port Said the consular ollieer succeeded in quietly buying up all the coal available at that port. This amounted to 20,000 tons, and it is in a good place to be shipped to Dewey, to .serve as a. base of supplies for Commodore Watson's eastern squadron when it enters the Mediterranean sea, or to coal any American vessels that may pass throug-b. the Suez canal bound to the Asiatic station, if it should be permissible for warships to take on coal at Port Said, THII Ifl P..

Food and Ammunition Scarce— Will Soon be KxInttiBtnd. PI.AYA DKT, ESTE, Guantunamo Bay, July 1.— Intercepted dispatches from Admiral Cervcra show a critical state of affairs at Santiago. Both food and ammunition are reported to be getting very short, and the latter will be ex'- hausted soon. For some days the fleet has been unable to draw a shot from the batteries off the harbor entrance, even though going very close inshoi-e.' The cruiser New Orleans Key West. has left for teer force of 0,000 men now coming from Tampa, and practically the entire fighting force will swing into Caney or Aguadores, making the base of operations before Santiago at this place. The railroad from here to Santiago is being rapidly pushed by engineers and a large force of troops. Its completion will greatly simplify the movement of supplies and a pack train will have no more arduous work than transporting- food and ammunition from point to point at the front. Siege guns were landed at liaiquiri Jas>t night and have started for the front. Cniimru Through Otiiml. 6MArau«, July 2.—Camara's fleet is now announced to have passed through the Suez canal.

Watson at Santiago. ^WASHINGTON, July 1.—Commodore Watson has reported to the navy department his arrival oft' Santiago and is in consultation with Admlraf Sampson respecting the details of the cruise to Spain, which it is expected will occupy fully four months, provided the war endures that length of time. The delays to which tbe Spaniards are subject at. Port Said will redound very greatly to the advantug-e of Admiral Dewey if Camara is still in reality bound for the Philippines, for they insure the arrival of almost the whole of General Merritt's military force and certainly of tho cruiser Charleston and the monitors Monterey and Monad- nock before the Spanish squadron could reach Manila harbor.
