WAflitiHO'nw, July as. Secretary
Alger has always fo'.t n pardonable
prldo In thu succjsi with which tho
war depirtmont met tho tremendous
problem thrust upin It by tho neces
sity with which it was suddenly con
fronted during tho war with Spain of
suddenly disposing of tho thousands
of Spanish prisoners cnptuicd In San
tiago province. The histo.-y of that
time has not been fully told, und it
remained for Secretary Alger to sup
ply tlie need by the following bit of
On tlio night of July 0, 1803. the
President naked mo what, in my judg
ment, we should do with tlio Spanish
prisoners of Santiago after their cap
ture. The matter had received very
much thought from tho President nnd
myself, but no detluilo conclusion had
been reached. I then suggested that
Galveston. Texas, would bo tho best
place in tlio United States, In my
judgment, whero we could send thorn;
thnt It was awny from tlio coast lino
trnvol; a good haibor; that thcro
would bo plenty of room for camping
them, and that Its cllmato would bo
us nearly similar to that of Santiago
as wo could probably select. This
seemed to meet his approval, ns it
was only it question of timo, of
cour.so, when their capttiro would bo
effected. I went to my home,
ns nearly as I cun remember, about
2 o'clock In tho morning nnd, being
too tired to slojp, I lay awako for
n while, but tinally dozed off. I
awoke at daybreak and my first
thought was concerning tho Spanish
prisoners, nnd the new idea cntno in
to my head, 'why not send them back
to Spain?' Tills thought so deeply
impiV35cd me that I formulated my
plan, nnd, on tho morning of July 10,
instead of going to tho department di
rect, 1 went to tho White liouso nnd
laid tho new plait before tho Presi
dent, saying that it would bo an un
precedented procedure and a most
gracious act; that to transport the
prisoners to Galveston would bo half
thu dlstaucc; that wo should havo to
clothe, shelter, guard and feed them
there, und no doubt havo to ship them
back to Spain in the end. I also
stated that I believed that it would
be a great' inducement to the Span
iards to surrender, which General
Shatter afterward assured mo was tho
effect. Tho President readily ap
proved tho plan and on tho samo day
I cabled General Shatter as follows:
" 'Should tho Spaniards surrended
unconditionally, and wish to return
to Spain, they will bo sent back at tho
expenso of the United States govern
ment.' 'Some days after tills contract was
awarded, tho president said to me, as
I entered the cabinet room:
" 'Mr. Secretary, would you Hko to
hoar something favoraHlo to you
printed in tlio New York Times? and
went on to rond the cdltoriul comment
complimentary to- tho man who origin
ated tho plan of transporting thr
Spaniards buck to Spain."
