WASHINGTON, Oct. 15.—Papers sub mitted by Secretary Alger to tho investigating committee with his statement concerning the conduct of the war, reveal the fact that General Miles recommended tho occupation of the Isla do Pines about the time of the i/attle of Santiago, nnd that General Alger disapproved the suggestion. It also appears that General Miles recommended that some point between Santiago and Porto Rico be taken previous to the beginning of either campaign. The correspondence also developed the fast that there was an apparant conflict of authority between General Miles and General Shatter at Tampa before the Santiago campaign was inaugurated. It also shows that orders were issued by the secretary of war that in the event that General Slmfter should be disabled by sickness or other cause the command of the troops at Santiago should devolve npon General Wheeler, and upon the next in command in case of the disability of both Slmfter and Wheeler.

It appears that when the Mohegan struck, a gale was blowing and the sea wasrunninghigh. Lifeboats put off from the Lizard and from Falmouth, one returning filled with passengers. Several were drown ed, however, it is reported, on th passage of the lifeboat to the shore 'The coast at that point is extremely dangerous, and has been the scene numerous wrecks.

Af tet i speaking of the troubles of the army, ' he said: "The lack of attention on the part of the people regarding th« need and unpreparedness in the armj system was the cause of the present trouble. Congress has not done as i| should have done. The regular armj should be increased. We are not ye1 out of war and we will need a thor* oughly equipped and efficient land and navy force. We are going to dabbl« in the east and you will have to flghl shoulder to shoulder and ship tc ship with England on this Chinese question. There will be an offensive and defensive alliance there.

MADKID, Oct. 17.—The semi-official Correspondencia attaches much importance to Friday's meeting of the peace commission. It says it believes besides discussing the Cuban debt and the evacuation of Cuba and tho Philippines a question was under discussion, which this pnper claims to regard as incredible, as all unprejudiced people must think that, after the signature of the protocol, the rights and sovereignty of Spain would be unquestioned. Continuing, the Corres- pondencia says: "The Americans are uncompromising and disposed to yield only on points of unimportant detail. They are not disposed to agree' to an arbitration, while Spain is willing to accept Russia or Germany. The public is anxious, but we cannot immediately reassure it, telegraph not being, under present circumstances, tho means oi information." P, B. Barpes, an attorney }n Chicago, has brought suit in that eity -against butcher -in that city because hilmeat The Lost M FALMOUTJI, Oct. 17.—Out of the 101 persons on board the lost steamer Mohcgnn, forty-five were saved. From the best evidence obtainable it appears that the Mohegan foundered five minutes after she struck the rocks. She was iroinp- at full speed, struck twice, stooped and rapidly settled into the water. As the captain and the executive officers of the sieamer went down with her, it has been impossible thus far to ascertain how she jrot out of her course, as Falmouth lights and the const were visible. One of the survivors, George Maule, of New York, said: "We left London Thursday, and all went well until 7 o'clock the ivext evening, when most of the passengers .vere at dinner. The steamer was joing at full speed, and suddenly we icard a loud crash, which seemed tc denote that we had collided with some other vessel. But when we rushed on leek we found that the Mohegan -was on the rockd between the Manacles and the low lands, in the vicinity ol ,he Lizard, Orders were given at once to lower the boats, and the crew f the steamer behaved like heroes, ler captain stood on the bridge, and he greatest order prevailed among he officers and crew, The steamer, lowever, began to settle by the head, .'wo boats were launched. The women vere sent away in the first boat." Spaniards Are LeavinK Havana. HAVANA, Oct. 34,— The Spanish mail steamer Reina Maria Christina has sailed for Spain with 1,073 officers and troops, 051 cases of military archives anil a heavy cargo of ammunition, the exact quantity not being ascertainable. JJUEVITJKS. A cable message received recently from Pekin, from H. II. Lowry, president of tho American University in China, denies the truth of ail the recent stories as to the suicide or assassination of the emperor, but says that the emperor has been deposed and the dowager empress reigns. News from Australia says the Head Hunters, the cannibal natives of Ren- dova, have of late been extremely active. On the western portion of the protectorate they captured a village and, after sUuig-htering many of the inhabitants, returned home with thirty jrisoner.s. These were killed and eaten at a barbaric feast. Evenment, a Paris paper, published an interview with Chamberlain, British secretary of state for colonies, now in America, in which he is quoted as saying that the United States, owing to the recent war, is in the same post tion as Great Britain is in Egypt; that the United States has ail imperative duty to keep the Philippines, adding: "The moment has arrived for the United States to prepare for an extension of territory. To realize this ideal she will not refuse Great Britain's support. Great Britain, the United States and Canada will be invulnerable." Work on the Spanish cruiser Vizcnya lias been abandoned.

ViBbEN, 111., Oct. 13.—The arrival ol negroes from the south yesterday afternoon was followed by a desperate battle. Five hundred shots were ex changed between the strikers on one side and Sheriff Davenport and his deputies on the other. It is though! at least twenty men on both sides were killed and wounded. The best inform ation is that ten were killed ahd fiv« fatally wounded, five seriously. A Chicago Jk Alton policeman named D. Kiley was among the killed. When the train arrived bearing the.negroes, fully 1,600 armed miners lined up on each side of the track. The train stopped in front of the gates of the stockade and the trouble, began. Dozens of shots were fired from the stockade at the white men and white strikers half a mile away. Kiley was killed by a shot from the tower. The wildest rumors are afloat, one to the effect that fifty miners were killed. There is the greatest excitement. The men are securing whatever arms they can to defend themselves if the trouble spreads. Women and children are fleeing to their homes and barricading the doors. It is reported that the miners were fired upon from the stockade after the train went through. It seems that the union miners were looking for the train bearing the negroes. Upon its arrival a shot was fired from the train. Firing began on all sides and the engineer of the train was hit. The fireman jumped to the throttle and threw it wide open and the train, which had stopped at the mines but two minutes, and from which none of tho negroes had alighted, was pulled on to Springfield. Tho fighting continued between the miners nnd the sharpshooters employed by the mine owners, and, said all of the dead miners were killed after the train departed. J. F. Eystcr, superintendent of the provision' store of the mining company, was telephoned to send physicians to the stockade. He went there with two, and upon his return the union miners, learning what he had done, chase.! him into his store. lie rushed to the roof of the building, from which he crossed to the roofs of other buildings, amid the fire of Winchesters. He was armed with two revolvers. He was finally wounded, probably fatally, and captured, after which he was brutally treated. Inside the stockade two were killed and eight wounded. Outside eight were killed and fifteen wounded. On the train which pulled into Springfield one deputy was killed, Engineer K.vger was shot in the arm and eight nejrroes were wounded, one of which died afterwards. Gov. Tanner had been appealed to by Sheriff Davenport for troops, the sheriff declaring that the situation was absolutely beyond his control. To his appeals the governor replied that so long as the coal company persisted in importing labor he would not furnish troops unless rioting occurred. After the fight troops were sent to the scene of the fight. Upon arrival at the stockade guards were ordered to surrender. One failed to do so and was shot. Squads of militia were sent out over the town and every man found was disarmed. SPBINGPIKLD, Oct. 13.—In an interview, Governor Tanner said he had instructed the militia sent to Virden to disarm all persons bearing arms, and to not allow imported laborers to unload from any train within the city limits nor to march in in a body. He declared that the officers of the company, who brought the ncgr6 laborers into the state against his urotcst, were guilty of murder, nnd should be indicted and convicted and he believed they would be. VJEDEN, 111. Oct. 14.—The day passed without another outbreak of violence, but aside from tho restraining influences of the militia, no progress has been made toward permanent peace. The idle miners are excitable and determined, while tho Chicago- Virden Coal company has shown no sign of a purpose to abandon its plan of operating its mines with imported negroes. The shooting" has resulted in fourteen deaths so far. VIRDEN, 111., Oct. 14.—At 5:35 last evening a train arrived here from Springfield bearing twp carloads of negroes taken through to Springfield on the previous day. Manager Lukens, of the mining company, demanded of Captain Fevier, of the militia, that they bo permitted to disembark, but the captain would not permit it, accl the train proceeded south, SrniNGFiEU), Oct. 15.—The troops are now in full control at Virden and Pana, with orders to permit no negroes to be unloaded from trains.

He had been stationed at Camp Thomas. He said the conditions at.first,were bad, but they were soon rectified. He thought pies sold the men were unwhoVsome and also said too much stale chicken had been sold to them. Dr. Hysell, chief surgeon of the Third division of the First army corps, located at Camp Thomas, followed. Dr. ITysell thought typhoid fever had been imported into camp from outside, and that the increase hod been due to the failure to properly cover the sinks and to the prevalence of flies. Ma or Gallagher, depot commissary at Siboney, San Juan, Santiago and Montauk Point, said he heard of no complaint of lack of rations at the front while at Siboney. At El Paso there were never enough rations for even a day ahead. A Shortage of lighters was the cause. Two of his assistants were inefficient and indifferent to their duties.

The commission gave the remainder of bhe day to the reading of papers submitted by Secretary Alger with his Statement concerning the conduct of the war, WASHINGTON, Oct. 15.—Dr. Seaman, major and surgeon of the First Volunteer engineers, who saw service in Porto Rico, testified that the supplies furnished by the commissary department were not suitable for invalids, and he depended on the Red Cross and National Aid societies for thcfoodncc- i-sary for the patients. He would not criticise the medical department of the irmy. Whatever fault existed was in other departments, lie declined to inswer questions put by Commissioners Connor and Brown, saying that after appearing before the commission he was expected to appear before the war department, and he would 1 noc criticize his superior officers while lie" wore .the.- shoulder straps. Lieutenant Hill, an officer of tho warship Jowa, said the army would have been unable to land, at Santiago, and unable to subsist after landing without the aid of tho navy, because it failed to provide itself with lighters.
