TflE UPPBR DBS MOINEB: ALGOKA, IOWA WBPNJSDAy JULY 20. 1398. THE HEWS IN IOWA MdlNES At 01VJAMA, -- & - — Capital City to VlAlfc the Exposition on the 23d. '±)ESMoINfi9. July 16.— it is Settled that fies Moines will go to the Omaha Exposition, August 23. A, conference •wfts held with TI. F. Mcttarvie, representing the Trans-Mississippi Exposition. Mayor MacVicar, Thos. llatton, president, und Secretary of the Commercial Exchange and C. II. Bath brick, president of the Jobbers' and Manufacturers' association, present. All agreed that Augusts,!, Tuesday, should be calendared as DCS Moines Hay. Hence July 15 is declared off. Some misunderstandings grew out of a former visit by an exposition agent, who 'left the mayor and the exchange in doubt as to -whether the date set, July 15, had been cancelled, or the exposition people expected DCS Moines to keep the date. But Mr. McGarvie, by his practical suggestions and important information as to the special days already set and leading features secured, set everything to rights, and August 23d is the date. DES MOINES IS WEALTHY. Individuals Subscribe Sl.OOO.OOO to the War Bond Issue. DES MOINES, July 18.— The people' of Des Moines have subscribed more than $1,000,000 to the new war loan. How much over that amount has been subscribed it is impossible at this time to ascertain, but the amoiint is prohably very much larger. It is known, however, that through the hanks exactly $929,500 has been subscribed and with the possible exception of 8100,000 of this amount, most of it was subscribed by individuals in amounts ranging from $100 to $20,000. A large proportion of the money offered in payment for the war bonds was not drawn from the banks, but represents wealth hoarded in waiting for opportunity for absolutely safe investment. THE WHISTLE TELLS IT. ON TO RICO. th* Arm? 1VII1 ft* Once be Sent to That Inland. WASHINGTON, July 15.— Secretary Alger says the Porto Rican expedition will go forward immediately. It will comprise new men entirely. The warriors in the trenches before Santiago have distinguished themselves and it is not deemed prudent to bring them in unneccssai-y contact with new troops in view of the danger of spreading contagion. The sick soldiers will be nursed back to health and brought to the United States as soon as they can safely be removed. Immune regiments will be ordered to Santiago to garrison the town, two of these regiments being already under orders to proceed. The Porto Rican expedition will be commanded by General Miles in person, though General Brooke, now in command at Camp Thomas, is expected to be his main dependence. The size of the expedition will depend upon General Miles's wishes, although it is believed that 25,000 men will be sufficient for the purpose. At San Juan, the navy will be of greater assistance than it was at Santiago, owing to the possibility of approaching the town more closely without risking contact with mines. _ THE WAR IS OVER. ALL OVEK THE WORLD SANTIAGO SURRENDERS. TORAL MUST YIELD. Receive the big the llow DCS Molncs Citizen* War News. DES MOINES, July 13.—Every piece of war news is signalled to public of Des Moines and vicinity by the Daily News, which has arranged a code of whistle signals whereby every possible event of importance is made known as soon as news is received, followed, of course, by extra editions of the News. The Daily News is making wonderful strides in circulation, due in part to its low subscription rate of SI a year. 75 cents for six months, 50 cents for three months, and 25 cents per month; but also to its wide-awake methods and its fairness in discussing all questions. HELD TO THE GRAND JURY. Sufficient Evidence Found to Hold Mrs. Hughes to tho Grand Jnry. MASON CITY, July 10.—Justice Cummings bound Mrs. Lottie Hughes, charged with the murder of her husband, over to the grand jury and fixed the bonds at 84,000. The preliminary hearing occupied four days, but in accordance with the request of attorneys for the defense has been conducted behind closed doors. Consequently nothing is known as to the nature of the evidence offered, aside from statements of attorneys and witnesses thut it was sensational in the extreme. EXPRESS OFFICIALS ARE HELD Adjudged to Have Violated the New Revenue Linv. OTTCMWA, July 18.—The first criminal case of violation of the new revenue law by express companies was tried before United States Commissioner Hunter. The express officials were held to the federal grand jury for exacting pay for revenue stamps on express receipts from shippers. Ben Mcnzcr's Neck Broken. IDA GKOVE, July 10>-While in town, two farmers, William Estlick and Ben Menzer, living ten miles north of Ida Grove, became intoxicated and began quarreling over some trivial affair. They left town, agreeing to settle the matter later. Next morning Menzer was found dead in Estlick's yard. The report says that he drove home past his own place to Estlick's, but without getting out of the buggy started to drive away and, turning too short, was thrown from the buggy, falling on his head and breaking his neck. Serious Accident. CjsnAit FALLS, July 10.— Joe Burns, assistant postmaster, had his right hand terribly lacerated by the explosion of a giant firecracker during the celebration of v tb.c capture of Santiago.

WASHINGTON, July 18.—A correspondent at Madrid says the martial law is nearly a step in the direction of what the government has long contemplated —negotiations for peace. He declares that with the fall of Santiago the war is at an end. "Spain to-day," he says, "to the relief of all her serious men, is in condition to seek terms of peace from the United States." The government has received word from General Blanco that the regular army under his command will submit to the desires of the government. The correspondent declares this is a great point gained. Sending the Spanish Home. WASHINGTON, July 18.—The secretary of war has approved a circular Colonel I-lecker has prepared calling for bids for transporting the Spaniards home from Santiago. It provides for an aggregate of 1,000 Spanish officers with first-class cabin accommodations, and 24,000 soldiers with third-class steerage passage. The Spanish forces will be delivered on board at Santiago for transportation to Cadiz, Spain, or such other port as may be designated. The subsistence furnished is to be equal to the prescribed United States army rations, which the bidders must furnish. Would Have Cost Many Lives. WASHINGTON, July 18.—One report sent by General Shafter contains the following: "The distress in Santiago is very great, but there is little sickness in the town, scarcely any yellow fever. A small gunboat and about 200 seamen left by Cervera have surrendered to me. The obstructions are being removed from the mouth of the harbor. Upon coming into the city 1 discovered a perfect entanglement of defenses. Fighting as the Spaniards did the first day, it would have cost 5,000 lives to have taken it." Five Deaths From Yellow Fever. WASHINGTON, July 15.—Reports that have reached the war department show that there have been five deaths among the yellow fever cases with Shafter's army. Surgeon General Sternberg is making arrangements to supplement the working force of immune physicians and nurses at Santiago. He announced that a vessel would leave New York at once carrying an additional number of this class of workers and a large consignment of hospital supplies. Double Murder at Fnriulngton. KEOSAUQUA, .Inly 18.—At Farmington, fifteen miles east of Keosauqua, in a saloon row, Push Recce and Geo. Hatter, colored, were shot and killed by Armel Freed. A feud existed between Hatter and Freed. Reece was a bystander. Freed claims he acted in self-defense. IOWA CONDHNSIOD. Dnclo Satn Will Transport the Spanish Troops to Spain. WASHINGTON, July 14.—The adjutant general has received the following: Have just returned from interview with General Toral. He agrees to surrender upon basis of being returned to Spain. This proposition embraces all eastern Cuba, from Asscraderos on south to Sagua on north, via Palma, with practically Fourth army corps. Commissioners meet this afternoon at 2:30 to definitely arrange terms. (Signed) SHAFTER, Major Gen. PLATA DEL ESTE, July 14.—Secretary of war, Washington: Before Santiago, July 14, General Toral formally surrendered the troops of his army—troops and division of Santiago—on the terms and understanding that his troopsshall bo returned to Spain. General Shafter will appoint commisioncrs to draw np the conditions of arrangements for carrying out the terms of surrender. ^ This is very gratifying, and General Shafter and the officers and men of his command are entitled to great credit for their sincerity and fortitude in overcoming the insurmountable obstacles which they encountered. A portion of the army has been infected with yellow fever, and efforts will be made to sepcrate those who are infected and those free from it, and keep those who are still on board ship separated from those on shore. Arrangements will be immediately made for carrying out further instructions of the president and yourself. (Signed) Nelson A. Miles, Major General of the Army. CONGRATULATING THE HERO. McKlnlcy and Alfjcr Compliment Shafter, Who Kcturns Thanks of Army. WASHINGTON, July 17.—The follow- messages were scut yesterday: To General Shafter, front near Santiago, Playa del Este: The president of the United States sends to you and your brave army the profound thanks of the American people for brilliant achievements at Santiago, resulting in the surrender of the sity and all the Spanish troops and territory under General Toral. Your splendid command has endured not only hardships and sacrifices incident to the campaign and battle, but in the stress of the heat and weather tri- 'umphecl over obstacles which would have O7ercome men who were less brave and determined. One and all have displayed the most conspicuous gallantry and earned the gratitude of the nation. The- hearts of the people turn with tender sympathy to the sick and wounded. May the Father of Mercy protect and comfort them. (Signed) WILLIAM McKiNLEY. To Major General Shafter, front near Santiago, Playa del Este: I cannot express in words ray gratitude to you and your heroic men. Your work has been well done. God bless you all. (Signed) R. A. ALGETC, Secretary o£ War. Later the following message was received at the White House: PLAYA DEL ESTE, July 10, via Hayti. —To the president: 1 thank you, and my army thank you, for your congratulatory telegram of to-day. I am proud to say every one in it has performed his duty gallantly. Your message will be read to every regiment in the army at noon to-morrow. SiiAFTKit. Major General. FOURTH MANILA EXPEDITION. Government Will Not Permit Spanish to Ketnln Their Arms. WASHINGTON, July 16.—After an extended conference with the president, at which three other members of the cabinet were present, Secretary Alger said: "The situation is just this: The Spaniards at Santiago want to surrender, but they want to carry their arms. We have determined to grant no such concession, nor any concession, except the generosity of this government to transport them to Spain." Secretary Alger was asked if it was not the expectation that when it was known that, no other terms would be granted the surrender would take place, and replied that such Was the case. In any event, no other concession would be afforded by this government. In accordance with a decision reached at a conference with the president, instructions have been sent to General Shafter that nothing but an unconditional surrender by General Toral will be satisfactory to this government and unless this is forthcoming at once the city will be bombarded. Gen. Toral, it is known, a.t first insisted that his men should be permitted to carry their arms with them to Spain. This concession General Shafter declined to grant. Toral has modified his demand regarding the arms and has presented a petition that the arms taken from his men be returned to Spain with the troops. As indicated in Secretary Alger's statement above, the petition has been denied by this government. General Shafter reported yesterday that Generals Wheeler, Lawton and Miley had been appointed as the representatives of the United States on the commission to arrange details of the surrender. The commissioners believed the matter would be settled yesterday. lie said there were about 12,000 troops in the city and about as many more in the surrounding district; 25,000 in all to be transported. Dispatches also state that the Spanish troops have left the entrenchments and gone into the city. Shafter has permitted the American soldiers to retire from the trenches, but has issued orclcrs absohitcly forbidd'ag anyone to enter Spanish lines. The refugees are permitted to return to their homes. Toral requested that the Spanish soldiers be supplied with food, pending their concentration and embarkation, saying there was little food in Santiago. This was granted.

T.*"nt 4<l-t r>Vi««t>/** tQDHflOv* Major General Otis Sails for the riilllp- pines With Two Vessels. SAN FRANCISCO, July 1G.—Shortly after 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon Major General Otis, from his flagship, the City of Pnebla, signalled the transport Peru to get under way. The two vessels proceeded slowly down the bay and out to sea. Major General Otis and staff have their headquarters ou the City of Puebla, which carries a total of 843 men. The troops on the Peru number 020 men. The last order of Gen. Otis was that the remaining transports should sail as soon as pos- sitle. Each one, he said, should goby itself, if necessary. Conditions at Cadiz. LONDON, July 15.—According to mail advices from Cadiz dated July 2, the old Spanish broadside armor clad Vittoria, for some time past used as a training ship, which, was towed back to Cadiz after starting ostensibly for the Philippine islands with the fleet of Camara, is the only war ship in the harbor. Mines have been laid to protect the entrance into the port of Cadiz and the coast lights extinguished along the whole length of the Spanish coast. Vessels are excluded from all the harbors of Spain after dark. Transporting Toral's Army. WASHINGTON, July 15.—The plan of the war department for returning the surrendered army of General Toral to Spain is to ask for proposals from all steamship companies which desire to compete for the transporting of the Spanish troops back to Spain, and the most advantageous bid will be accepted. The advices of Gen. Shafter state that the number of Spanish prisoners will be between 12,000 and 15.000. Evidence That the Ministry is Preparing lor Eventualities. MADBID, July 10.—A decree has been piiblished suspending throughout Spain the rights of individuals as guaranteed by the constitution. The publication of the decree is accepted as proof that peace negotiations arc actually in progress. The government wishes to >jave full power to suppress any evidejjce of discontent or rebellion which might appear. The Carlists are furious, and are sure to attempt to create troiible. One minister expressed a conviction that official overtures for peace would be made before Sunday, that there was reason to believe France offered her services to Spain and that Spain would draw up conditions for peace which she would offer as a basis of negotiations. Sagasta is quoted as saying Spain wants peace, but "it must be honorable peace, as Spain deserves." "The army," the premier is said to have added, "is anxious to resist to the last, but the government cannot consent to siich useless sacrifice. Had we our fleet, the situation would be very different." Final Bcport of Casualties.' GENERAL SHAFTER's HEADQUARTERS, July 17.—The final, report of casualties in the army since it landed in Cuba three weeks ago has been forwarded to Washington. It shows an aggregate of 1,914 officers and men killed, wounded and missing. The killed number 84f>, of whom 21 were officers; wounded, J.584, of whom OS were officers; missing, 84, of whom none were officers. Of the wounded only 08 have died. In the fleld hospital there have been a remarkable small number of septic wounds and but two cases of gangrene have developed, one of which resulted fatally. More Spanish Prisoners. PORTSMOUTH, N. TI., July 10.—The cruiser Harvard with a thousand prisoners from Cervera's fleet has arrived. Nearly half on board were ill, eighty seriously. Seven died on the way. All the patients are victims of malarial fever. JUtKVITJKS. GOOD NE.VS FROM DEtVEV. Met a German Womonatratlon In Ills ttauitl Decisive Manner. WASHINGTON, July 14.—The administration is very much pleased with the readiness shown by Admiral Dewey in meeting the grave issue presented to him at Subic bay and just reported as he did. Naval Officers, too, were not a little gratified at the speedy retirement of the German cruiser Irene after the appearance of Raleigh and Concord. A comparison of the ships shows that the Irene was much the superior of either of the two American vessels, and in tonnag'e was almost as large as tire Raleigh and Concord together. From this it is inferred that the retirement of the Irene was from motives of general policy rather than from any indisposition to try conclusions with the two American ships. In armor the German ship was much stronger than the Americans, but in guns the Americans had the advantage in number and general effectiveness. In official quarters here there appears to be no disposition to look upon the action of the Irene as a menace which will require explanation. It was thought at first that this first outward show of force on the part of the German ships might lead to an inquiry by this government as to the purpose of Germany. Thus far, however, there is no disposition to make such inquiry or to attach serious import to the incident. The navy department has received from Admiral Dewey the following dispatch: Aguinaldo informed me his troops have taken all of Subic bay except Isla Grande, which he was prevented from taking by the German mnu-of-war, Irene. On July 7 the Raleigh andCon- cordwent there; they took the isle and about 1.300 men, with arms and ammunition. No resistance. The Irene retired from the bay on their arrival. I shall send the Boston to Cnpc Engano about Jxily 10 to meet second army detachment. It is not practicable to send to Guam. No transport vessels available. (Signed) DEWEY. Complete Control of Sublg. MANILA, July 10, via Hong Kong.— The Americans captured the Spanish garrison at Grande Island, Subig bay, the chief harbor of Luzon outside of Manila. Aguinaldo, July 0, informed Dewey that the insurgents held all of Subig except a large island controlling the entrance with a strong garrison, which they were unable to take. The admiral forthwith, early the 7th, dispatched the Raleigh and Concord, with emphatic orders to take the. island and garrison. On their arrival both shelled the principal points, destroying the torpedo station, the earthworks and the launch. There was no response. Finally the Raleigh sent a 0-inch shell through the commander's house. The white flag was instantly shown. Ca.p- tain Coghlan sent Rodman, of the Raleigh, and Napier, of the Concord, with a landing party to. demand the absolute surrender. The Spanish colonel. Rio Hopeless, complied. Five hundred men. rides. 40,000 rounds of ammunition and one Hotchkiss gun was captured. This gives us control of Subig. It is a splendid strategic point. It frustrates the Spanish plan to protect the mines and make ready for a now fleet coming, and ends all possible German designs. The seizure was done with a dash and success that surpassed the Germans and other foreigners. Spain Ought to Trolit by it. LONDON, July 15.—All of the London papers tender an ample inede of praise for the success of the American strategy in securing possession of eastern Cuba with so little bloodshed. They recognize that fiirther resistance on the part of Spain is hopeless, since in all probability famine will soon compel Captain General Blanco to surrender. Therefore, they say, Spain ought to profit by the pause in hostilities tc sue at once for peace. SfONE IN HER STOMACi!* From tlit Gazette, mandimvllle, 111. the wife of the Rev. A. R.

FROM TORONTO TO QUEBEC. Something About an Attractive Pleasure " Trip and How to Make It. The famous Canadian corporation, the Richelieu and Ontario Navigation Company, has issued a Guide Book, entitled "Niagara to the Sea," which may be had by writing to the general offices of the company, 288 St. Paul street, Montreal, Canada, and which anyone who may be thinking of mak^- ing a pleasure trip through Lower Canada this summer will find it advantageous to consult. The handsome and commodious steamboats of tha company traverse a route which for picturesque beauty and historic interest is not surpassed, is barely equaled by any water highway in the world. Toronto, the western terminus of tho line, a handsome, prosperous, bustling city, in itself is well worth a visit, is easily and expeditiously reached from Niagara Falls, and from there the sail across Lake Ontario and down the St. Lawrence River, past Kingston, Brockville, Prescctt and Cornwall and other well-known places to Montreal and Quebec is distinguished by a varied and abiding charm. The tourist passes among the far- famed Thousand Islands, and, although he must not expect to see the best of them from the deck of the boat, he will be able to get an idea of the secret of their singular attractiveness. If the season is'propitious—that is, during the months of July and August—he will experience the peculiar sensation known only to those who have shot the Lachlne and the Long Sault Rapids, and when he reaches Montreal he will find himself in a city which combines many of the graces of the Old World with all the energetic progressivenesa of the new. Should he continue his journey to Quebec, he will feel as though he had crossed the Atlantic and arrived at some ancient European cap- Hal. Montreal is in most things as modern as New York, but Quebec, although by no means wanting in the conveniences of life, seems to. belong to a bygone century and to another world. It Is essentially foreign an all the varied aspects of its life. From Quebec it is but a short journey to the Saguenay River, which, in the wild and awful sublimity of its environment. Is beyond compare. Poet—! 'Poets, sir,areborn,not made." Publisher—"That's right; lay the blame on your father and mother." Cervera at Annapolis.
