was with Gouuv. since tho week fol
lowing the blowing up thu Maine, has
cati'o I everything to ba made eleur
regarding the situation on the island,
from mi Insurgent standpoint. The
conclusions drawn fiom Mr. Summer
ford's observations are:
I'irst The condition of the rccon
ccutrados since the I'nitcd States sup
plies have been cut oil" Is unspeakably
bad. I hey tiro d. ing in greater num
bers tliau ever before from actual
starvation This mortality will In
crease so long us relief Is not forth
coming from the Culled States.
Second Tho most of Goiue.'.s com
mand continues to bi. inactive, wait
ing for Spain to yield up the island.
Third It Is not thu idea of insur
gents to Join with the Tinted States
troop, and give the Spaniards open
battle, driving them out. General
Gome does not seem noxious to have
1'iiltod States troops lauded. Ho be
lieves nil that Is necessary is for tho
United States to blockade only Span
ish ports, stop Trench and Italian
ships as well as Spanish ships from
going into Cuban ports, and semi him
arms, munitions mid supplies, so that
ho can continue to harass the Spanish
outposts. He believe this will re
sult lu Spain's yielding In a fuw
months. Mr. Siiiumurford, on tho
other hand, believes it is necessary
for tho United States to land troops
Toiirth Gome is sorely In need of
nrms ami supplies. His men are far
ing well so fur us fare goes lu Cuba,
but they are now on one ration u day.
Gome is about s'..ty miles inland in
the eastern end of the Islnud.
Mr .siiiunierford came witli Colonel
Iitnn .lova, one of the ollicers of the
Cuban republic, who brought seul.'d
mess iges from Gome, to Admiral

.if the fleet of Admiral Sampson from
Key West Is believed to bo duo to n
conviction on the pari of naval olli
cers that thu Spanish fleet Is headed

North Atlantic squadron will strlko

head for the nori. coast of llrar.il to
meet the Oregon, Tdarlctta nnd ltuf
falo, mid convoy them safely into
Meantime, the auxiliary cruisers
chartered from tho American Stenm
ship company are to net us scouts,
furnishing notice in iidvanco of tho
approach of hostile fleet, while a suf
llclent number of smaller vessels will
be left to maintain tho blockade
around the island of Cuba.
The uncertainty legnrdlug Mm
whercalioiitn of the Spanish fleet is
respouslblu for the postponement of
