day said: "Senor Sagasta has gone to

unfortified part of Manila burned. The
Americans lired petroleum bombs. An
extraordinary cabinet council has been
convoked for 7 o'clock this evening."

Hong Kong, May 3. There is no news
of the American squadron beyond a pri
vate telegram from Captain Concha, of
the Spanish cruiser Don Juan de Aus
tria, to his children at a convent school
here, mentioning that tiring has been
heard in the direction of Corregidor
island. It is assumed f . om this that the;
Americans were rec onnoitering the en
trance and trying the southern side of
the island, which is six miies wide and
surrounded by rocks and shoals, though
not believed to be mined. There is no
news either of the Spanish squadron,
but according to the latest advices it
could not take the offensive in any case.
The cable to Manila is now interrupted.

Washington, May 3. It is a curious
fact that the nation most interested of
all the? great powers in the combat that
took place at Manila Sunday should be
among the last officially to know of the
result. Up to the ch.se of office hours
yesterday absolutely the only informa
tion that our government had received
of the brilliant victory of Commodore
Dewey and the winning of the battle
of Manila on May day came to the gov
ernment through the medium of the
press dispatches. If the report is true
that Commodore Dewey has begun a
bonjhnrdme.nt and blockade of the city
of Manila it is unlikely that he can
spare a vessel from his fleet to carry
the news to Hong Kong, the nearest
cable station, so it is not known when
official advices will come.
The greatest anxiety -is felt as to the
casualities sustained by the American
fleet. From the stubborn defense made
by the Spaniards it is feared that they
burnt, blew up or sunk their ships they
managed to indict severe damage upon
Commodore Dewey's squadron. If Com
modore Dewey has lost a considerable
portion of his men it is feared he will
te much embarrassed in the work of
maintaining possession of Manila for
lack of sufficient forces. United States
naval vessels are always undermanned,
i acc ording to European standards, and
1 it will not be passible, having regard to
the safety of he ships, to spare any
considerable number of men to keep the
city, especially if the engagement has
disabled many of them.
There was some talk yesterday of
sending troors out from San Francisco
to aid in this work, but this has not yet
taken shape as far as can be learned,
and it is likely that the department will
wait to hear from Commodore Dewey
himself before taking any action. It
may be and in fact it is expected that
by combination, with the Insurgents he
will succeed in having his men relieved
of the task of garrisoning Manila. As
to the future of the island, it is likely
that the government will retain posses
sion of at least one good port, such as
Manila, for a coaling station and base
of supplies during the ramainder of the
war. In the possession of these islands
the United States will enjoy a powerful
weapon in "enforcing terms of peace

There is no talk yet of European in
Mrver.tion, but one of the most bene
ficial results of Dewey's victory is that
a deep impression has been made upon
the European powers who can now no
Hnger afford to blind themselvea to the
fact that man to man the American
navy Is equal to any in the world. The
impression produced is likely to deter
I he European powers from hasty inter

In honor of the victory of the American
fleet at Manila. The war department
is bending all its energies to the mus
tering in of the volunteers and the re
uniting of the regular army to its full
war strength of Cl.Oi'O men. These mat
ters are well under way, and the of
ficials feel confident that within a rea
sonable time both the voulnteers and
the regular armies will be ready for
practical military duty. Secretary Al
eer and General Miles had a long con
ference with the president yesterday
afternoon, presumably in regard to ap
pointments in the volunteer service. In
a few days all the troops that have been
ordered to Tampa are expected to reach
that place and the eight large trans
ports which are to conduct the first
expedition to Cuba have been ordered
to proceed to Tampa.
The officials, however, decline to make
public any information regarding the
expedition or the place in Cuba where
it is to land. The quartermaster's de
partment has begun negotiations with
railroad companies for the transporta
tion of the volunteers to their mobiliz
SPANISH ACCOUNT OF THE FIGHT.
Onr Sbuadron Appears Itefore Cavite at 3
In the Morning.
London, May 3. The Madrid corre
spondent of The Times describing the
engagement at Manila says: "The
Olympia, the Boston, the Raleigh, the
Concord, the Petrel and the Monocacy
entered the bay under cover of dark
ness by the smaller and safer Docachica
channel. The forts of Corregidor island
gave the alarm by firing on the intrud
ers, but they seem to have inflicted no
serious damage. The American squa
dron moved up the bay and at 3 o'clock
it nhe mornig appeared before Cavite.
Here, lying- under the shelter of the
forts, was the Spanish squadron. Ad
miral Montejo, a few days before, went
to Subic bay to look for the enemy, but
learnig that they were vastly superior
in force, had prudently returned and
placed his ships under the protection of
This was his only chance of meeting
the enemy on something- like equal
terms, and it did not suffice. Soon the
Americans opened fire. The Spaniards
replied vigorously and the combat con
tinued without interruption for four
hours, during which the Don Antonio
de Ulloa aws sunk, the Casilla and iMn
dan were set on fire and the Renia Ma
ria Christiana and the Don Juan de
Austria were seriously damaged. One
or two of the smaller craft were scut
tled by their crews to escape capture.
Others took refuge in a small neighbor
ing creek emptying into Bakor bay
where, presumably, the American ships
were unable to follow them. But not

Key "West, Fla., May 3. More naval
officers from the big ships were ashore
yesterday at any time since the fleet
sailed for Cuban waters. Although the
blockade is still being maintained by
the smaller cruisers an importantmove
ment is being planned. What it is, how
ever, can only be conjectured. The
cruiser Marblehead brought in the
Spanish steamer Argonauta, captured
b ythe gunboat Nashville off the south
coast of Cuba last Friday. The Argo
nauta was bound for Havana and had
on board a colonel of the Spanish army,
a surgeon, six officers and three non
The auxilary cruiser Eagle, a trans
formed yacht, was scouring along the
southern coast of Cuba near Cienfuegos
when she sighted the Argonauta and
started in pursuit. She was fired upon
from 4he shore but continued the chase
and drove the big steamer along- the
coast toward the Marblehead and the
Nashville, into which the Spaniard al
most ran. They put a couple of shots
across her bows and she quickly hove
to and surrendered. The Nashville took
the Spanish army officers on board as
prisoners of war and brought them into
London, May 3. It is suggested at
Madrid that the half-breeds at Manila
arsenal, insurgents at heart, cut the
cables connecting with the sub-marine
mines, enabling Dewey to force the
harbor in safety.
Victory Told in the Commons.
London, May 3. In the house of com
mons yesterday Balfour, the govern
ment leader and first lord of the treas
ury, answering a question on the sub
ject, said the government had received
information pointing to a serious battle
at Manila and the destruction of a por
tion of the Spanish fleet. He added
that a British warship was on her way
there, explaining that anything the gov
ernment can do to preserveBritish lives
and interest will be done.
Not Victory, but Annihilation.
London, May 3. The Daily Mail, ir
an editorial this morning on the en
gagement at Manila, says: It was in
Nelson's words 'Not victory, but an
nihilation,' and it proved Commodore
Dewey a worthy disciple of the heroic
Farragut. It is characteristic of the
American race to be generous to the
weak, and as the president is averse to
useless bloodshed, he will doubtless
meet Spain, whose honor is now saved,
in a generous spirit."
