Havana Oct. 18. The Spanish
milita-y commission has sent a reply
to the American note concerning the
evacuation of tbe island. The- Span
iards continue to insist that tbe troops
cannot be sent from the inland as rap-
idly as the Americans desira..
The Spanish note declares that evac
uation according to tbe terms of tbe
protocol means only the withdrawal of
the military forces from the island and
not the surrender cf Spain's sovereign-
ty in Cuba. This latter quest'on is a
matter says the note to be settled by
the peace commissioners at Paris. Un-
til settled the Spanish government is

recommendations on tbe ground
that it will be entirely safe
to send an American army there
then whereas if it is sent earlier
there might be danger of yellow
fever. As neither Hecker nor Lee is
an expert in this line the suggestions
will have little weight at the depart-
ment. Every precaution is to be taken to
insure tbe health of the army of occu-
pation but it mu6t be sent to Cuba
within the next three weeks. Tbe as-
signment lists of troops for
Cuba are nearly ready and
may be given out today. There has
been a decided shifting of regiments
especially among the volunteers and
the pres ure on the department has
been very strong either to get certain
regiments in or get them out.
One of the most important matters
of details under consideration is a
complete change in the army ration.
The- department has decided
that bard tack and bacon as a basis for
tbe ration shall be supplanted en
tirely or at least supplemented by
other food more suited for
the constitution of men on duty in the
tropics. Profiting by the mistakes of

Virden III. Oct. 18. It is reliably
stated that from th9 Chicago office of
the Chicago Virden Coal Co. bas
emanated a request that tbe differ-

the men however and the success
which bas attended their efforts in the
past few weeks lead to the opinion
that the matter is past arbitration.
But Cuba Must be Ours In Fact Be-
fore Success Will be Assured.
Washington Oct. 18. State de-
