Washington, Sept. -Official dis-
patches received here from Havana
confirm the reports that the colonial
.^government of the island is taking a
hand in shaping the terms on which
the evaluation shall be executed. This,
It Is believed here, may develope some
uew phases in the situation in Cuba.
The colonial government was estab-
lished by Spain shortly before Ihe war
broke out, there being a abinet of five
officers at Havana, and a legislative
body with two houses. It carried out
In a measure the long pending plan of
gMng Cuba home rule by means of an
autonomous government, but while in
name autonomous, It was contended by
the Insurgent element that genuine
home rule was lacking and that this
colonial regime was a continuance of
Spanish domination. It appears, how-
ever, that these colonial authorities are
taking a very active part in the pres-
ent negotiations and that there Is more
or less co-operation between them and
\ the Spanish government. This creates
a condition In which the U. S. must
deal, not only with Spain, but with
those who claim to represent the island
itself, free from Spanish control. The
colonial, or autonomist administration
is very thoroughly organized and can
4 exert much influence. It established a
j regular legation in Washington prior to
the war. with several prominent public
men of Havana on the staff. Its num-
bers in its ranks much of the wealth of
Cuba, and claims to stand for the edu-
:ated classes as against the insurgents
It now seems clear, from *he official
as well as the press reports troin Ha-
vana and Madrid, that the autonomist
element Is taking up the claim first ad-
vanced by Spain that many incidental
questions as to Cuba must be settled
before the evacuation begins, fBut f:he
view among government officials here
is that the Cuban autonomists as well
as the Spaniards, have no Questions #
advance or settle before evacuation is
determined upon. The i/m- and -place
of evacuation is looked upon by the au-
thorities here as the only point Involved
and there is likely to be a ft*ude awak-
ening if the pro-Spanish element, either
.as autonomists or as native Spaniards,
insists upon bringing In the determina-
tion of the Cuban debt, future forms of
government, rates of tariff of WSpain,
and many other subjects, as a pre-
liminary to evacuation. The American
commissioners, will insist on a strict'
adherence to the protocol for an inime- j
diate evacuation of the island, and if '
need be, will submit an ultimatum I
against taking up subsidiary questions
of Cuba's future.
TO WITHDRAW AT ONCE.
While the Cuban colonial government
is thus combining with the Spanish
government In brining forward these
incidental questions yet the opinion was
expressed today by a high diplomatic
officer, based on recent advices from
Havana, that a serious Issue would be
averted, and that the actual avacuatlon
of Spanish troops from Cuba would be-
gin within the next month. But it ap-
pears that the evacuation will <cover a
much longer time than has been antic-
ipated. There are some 100,000 Spanish
troops in the Island. Allowing 1,000 men
on a transport and a vessel leaving ev-
ery day. it would take 100 days, or over
three months for the evacuation. But
the vessels are not available for a trip
every day for 100 consecutive days, t >
that the time for departure would prob-
ably exceed three months.

About on the InImuU -Ameri-

Ipplnes, business is decidedly brisk in
Manila at present and there is every
indication of the approach of a boom.
The fact that everything has been prac-
tically tied up for th«- past three
months, necessarily occasions an im-
mense amount of extra work, now thaa

apart from this the advent of th*

One of the first official acts of the
new administration was to clear the
channel a the mouth of the river Paslg
of the obstructions placed there by the
Spaniards, thereby re-openlng the port
of Manila for commerce. Immediately
after this had been done the fleet of In-
ter-Island steamers which, by an ar-
rangement with Admiral Dewey, had
been anchored out in the harbor and
used as refuse ships by the various con-
sulates. returned to their bet ths at the

I In accordance with the requirements
I of international law no charge has us
yet been made in the customs regula-

the war is still maintained, and the
coffers of the treasury are being re-
plenished very materially. It was nat-
urally expected that under the regime
the port duties would be considerably
reduced and many merchants laid their
plans accordingly, but In spite of ex-
orbitant duties the demand so far ex-
ceeds the supply that the merchants
are only too glad to get their gouijs

GEN. SHAFTER TELLS OF THE SANTIAGO
CAMPAIGN AT A REUNION.
Chicago, Sept. 22.—A special to the
Tribune from Constaniine, Mich., gives
the following speech made by Gen.
Shaffer at that place, where he went to
attend the reunion of the 19th Michigan
regiment, of which lie was colonel dur-
ing the civil war:
Gen. Shafter said that when the fleet
had left Tampa It was Intended to land
at 25 miles from Havana and march on
that city. When, however, the fleet put
pack, because of the reported proximity
Df a Spanish squadron, word was re-
ceived from Admiral Sampson that
Santiago could be taken In 24 hours,
and the army sailed for that point.
Gen. Shafter then described in /lis own
characteristic manner the campaign at
Santiago. A ft< r re at hing the t int 4

offered to surrender, Gen. Shafter con-
cluded as follows:
