LONDON, April 28.—The Hong Kong
correspondent of The Daily Mall says:
"United States Consul General Will
lams, after spending the evening
ashore with United States Consul
Wiidman, accompanied the American
squadron. Thirty Insurgent leaders?
here wanted to accompany it; but
Chief Aguinaldo goes as their repre
sentative. He will take charge of the
insurgent forces at Manila. Admiral
Dewey has issued strict orders that no
barbarous or inhuman acts are to be
perpetrated by the insurgents.
"The primary object is the capture
of the Spanish fleet, which Admiral
Dewey thinks more important than
capturing Manila. He Is determined
to prevent its preying upon American
vessels. On reaching Manila he will
demand its capitulation within half an
hour of his arrival. His men are in the
best of spirits and excellent health.
There have been nine desertions. In

one German during the fleet's stay at
"Every preparation has been made.
The ships are cleaned and painted for
battle, and the general opinion Is
that the fight in these waters will re
sult in an easy victory for America.
Her ships carry 122 guns, as against
% or thereabouts in the Spanish fleet.
"The co-operation of the American
fleet wt i the rebels has been kept a
strict secret The latter await the ar
rival of the fleet, when Manila must
soon succumb. Its defenses are in a
wretched state. The Americans in the
Philippines are anxious to see British
rule established there, and the proposal
has been favorably received here. The
Manila press on the contrary says
there is great enthusiasm among the
population for Spain, and that an ob
stinate resistance will be offered to the
Americans; but the papers qualify thi3
bold allegation by referring to the
'phlegmatic character of the natives,
which prevents any excited expression
of opinion.' These journals say too,
that the treason of a few hundreds or
a few thousands of the rebels does not
affect the virtue of the race: and they
haughtily add that the Philippines will
prove worthy of Spain.
"The governor of the Philippines has
issued several proclamations. One re
quired all able-bodied Spaniards to en
roll themselves for military service,
and accords permission to foreigners to
join. Exemption is granted to all
American citizens. One extraordinary
proclamation has excited great dis
trust here. It asserts that the Ameri
can people are composed of all social
excrescences, who have exhausted our
patience and provoked war with then
perfidious machinations, their acts of
treachery and their outrages against
the law of nations and international
She Await* the Outcome With I'erfect
MADRID, April 28.—Madrid is abso
lutely unmoved. The capture of the
American Saranac by a Spanish gun
boat near Manila caused a momentary
excitement, but the town is expectant
of the result of the action likely to oc
cur off the Philippines and awaits the
outcome with perfect confidence.
As a counterpoise to the growing
sympathy toward the Carlists among
the people since Don Carlos raised a
vigorous war note against the United
States, the Spanish cardinals and pre
lates are now assembling here to visit
the queen regent collectively, declar
ing their adhesion to and support of the
reigning dynasty. They will endeavor
to convince the people that the queen
regent has never advocated peace at
any price, but thoroughly participated
in the enthusiasm of the people to de
fend the honor and rights of Spain.

casualties have been reported to the
flagship. The torpedo boat Dupont ar
rived from Matanzas, reporting that
there had been no more firing there and
that the blockade was effectively es
tablished. No prizes have been se
cured by the Matanzas squadron.
News has been received that the La
Lucha asserted that two coasting
steamers had sneaked into Havana
harbor on Saturday; but it should be
remembered that at that time the
blockade was only in its initial stages.
The fighting squadron is equipped
with a force of small boats, which un
der cover of darkness can get close in

blockade running by little craft bug

taken as in any way a criterion of

WASHINGTON, April 28.—The war
situath 11 iK substantially this: The
blockading squadron remains passive
before Havana with 110 presnii pur
pose of bombarding, or of drawing the
lire of the shore batteries. The strat
egic purpose of effective blockade of
the Cuban capital is being accom
plished to the entire satisfaction of
the authorities here. There is no indi
cation that a part of the lleet will be
withdrawn for the purpose of afford
ing additional protection to North At
As to the report of the imminence of
a naval battle off the Philippine islands
the naval authorities here seriously
doubt whether the Spanish fleet will
make a stand against the American
ships. Their reason for this belief is
that the Spanish lleet is very inferior
in number i.nd quality to the American
force under Admiral Dewey. The de
partment, therefore, is satisfied that
the Spanish lleet will not goto do bat
tle on the high seas with Admiral
Dewey, but will remain In port to se
cure the protection of the battalion of
Manila, and are not expecting an en
gagement for about two days.
Without giving any explanation for
setting this time the department al
lows it to be surmised that the estimate
is based on its knowledge of Admiral
Dewey's whereabouts. There is no cer
tainty that there will be an engage
ment at al< .n the immediate future, the
main purpose of the American expedi
tion being to seize and hold some suit
able Spanish territory in the Philip
pines as a base of operations in Asiatic
waters, it is possible that this can be
done without attacking the other at
all, by seizing a suitable port on some
adjacent Island without fortifications,

toward the insurgents.

The very fact that the Madrid offi
cials have rather ostentatiously de
cjared that the fpanish fleet has sailed
to bombard the cities on the North
American coast is taken as a certain
indication at the navy department of
the utter improbability of such a move

Spanish officials would be the very last
to make their purpose public.

WASHINGTON, April 28.—1t was

the Netherlands. Switzerland, Norway

To these should be added Great Brit

great powers of Europe have declared

cause surprise, as Austria's sympathy
with Spain is no more pronounced
than that of any other country of
Europe. It is doubted, however, that
Austria »ill assume a neutral attitude
eventually. The delay of Germany is
felt to be due solely to Germany's con
sulting her own commercial interests

Actual Fighting May Not Begin Until
WASHINGTON, April 24.— 1n the war
department there is a growing belief
that the campaign proper in Cuba will
not be in full swing beiore next fall,
when the rainy season has ended. That
belief, however, has not prevented the
officers whose duty it is to get the
troops together from pushing their
work with the greatest energy. Thus,
within 12 ..ours after the Hull bill be
came a law, the department was able
to begin to send out circulars pre
scribing the methods to be followed in
recruiting the regular army up to its
full war strength of 61,000 men.
The enormous amount of work in
volved in thus increasing the army,
regular ant' volunteer, has caused Gen
eral Miles to abandon his southern
trip fir the present. The officials of the
department were overwhelmed with
all sorts of protests and appeals
against their action in making the as
signments of troops among the volun

a much more radical doctrine than the
United States in the matter. The
Spanish order published in the official

purpose of exercising the right of
