"Washinffton, May 17. An order posted
yesterday morning: and signed by Sec
retary Loner relative to the publication
of news emanating from the navy de
partment had the effect yesterday of
considerable curtailing; th supply of
information that heretofore has been
rather freely given out. The secretary's
order was directed to Captain Crown
inshleld, chief of the navigation bureau,
and he in turn gave it effect by making
an order in his own name that no per
son connected with his bureau in any
capacity should have any conversation
whateverupon subjects in any way per
taining to the navy with representa
tives of the press. As an offset it was
ordered that bullet. --s of such fac ts as
have actually occurred and are proper
for publication, and are not connected
with existing or projected movements,
shall be prepared and posted on the bul
And This In the Flint Iay's Hudget.
The sum total of the information pub
lished by the bulletin board yesterday
under this rule was a notice of the in
tention to start the Philippine relief
expedition, and of the permission given
to some foreign neutral vessels to pass
the blockade at Havana. In explana
tion of the issue of this order the naval
authorities say that some of the leading
American newspapers have been so far
lacking in patriotism as to print plans
of campaign and projected movements
of naval ships, with the result that the
war board has been obliged to com
pletely revise its plans In the knowledge
that the Spaniards had promptly taken
notice of the publications and were
prepared to profit by them. Complaint
was made to Secretary Long that the
newspapers were working injury to the
government In such cases.
Cargo of the Spanish Armada,
Intimations have been received here
that Captain General Blanco at Havana
Is very short of ammunition, in which
case the powerful batteries at the en
trance of Havana harbor of course
would be deprived of a large part of
their defensive strength. This state of
affairs may lead to some desperate at
tempts at blockade running on the part
of the Spaniards in the hopes of getting
more ammunition Into Havana. It is
believed that the supplies so frequently
referred to as being on the Spanish fly
ing squadron are of this character
rather than food supplies, which makes
It all the more important that Sampson
and Schley should succeed in keeping
Admiral Cervera from reaching Havana
or Cienfuegos, or any port In Cuba con
nected with Havana by rail. Commo
dore Schley probably is well down on
the Florida coast now. His appearance
on that side of Cuba would enable
Sampson to bring his ironclads with
perfect safety into Cienfuegos on the

"What the Senate Committee Has Done to
the War Revenue Kill.
"Washington, May 17. The debate up
on the war revenue measure was begun
in the senate yesterday. The opening
statement for the committee on finance
was made by Allison, the ranking mem
ber in the absence of Morrill of Ver
mont. It was estimated that the bill, as
it came from the house of representa
tives, would raise about $100,000,000 a
year. As reported from the senate com
mittee Allison estimated that it will

ment the bill was made the unfinished

The house received its first veto from
President McKinley and voted unani
mously to sustain the executive. The
veto was of a bill conferring upon the
court of claims Jurisdiction In a private
claims case of long standing. The day
was given to the consideration of bills
under suspension of the rules, none of
which was of general interest.
EXCHANGE OF PRISONERS.
Report of the Farty That Went to Havana
Under a Flag of Truce.
Key West. Fla., May 17. The Uncas
after leaving here at 1 o'clock on Sun
day morning headed for Havana and
epjke the Mayflower, which was acting
as flagship of the blockade fleet. Lieu
tenant Bralnard. U. S. N., special agent
of the United States government,
boarded her and handed sealed orders to
the captain, who thereupon instructed
the Uncas to hoist a white lla, and
proceed into Havana harbor. The Un
tas then steamed towards Havana, and
when within signalling distance of
Morro Castle she signaled, asking for
an anchorage. The castle signaled hack
that its commander was waiting for
instructions and that the Uncas must
certainly not anchor.
After an Interval a launch with th
harbor authorities on board put out
from the shore anil took on board Lieu
tenant Bralnard and Mr. Knight, the
correspondent of the London Times, who
had been chosen to negotiate the ex
change of prisoners. As the launch was
returning to the shore she was met by
Captain General Blanco's launch com
ing out with the captain general's aide-de-camp
and Mr. Gollan, the British
consul general. The boats drew to
gether and a conference was had. Lieu
tenant Brainard and Mr. Knight were
assured that Messrs. Thrall and Jone3
were absolutely safe and were being
threated with every consideration.
It was added that Captain General
Blanco was willing to release them the
moment the United States authorities
send him two Spanish prisoners in ex
change. Mr. Knight was told he could
not land at Havana from an American
boat, in spite of the flag of truce, and
it was explained to him that if he de
sired to reach Havana he must go there
on a ship belonging to some neutral
power. The Uncas then returned to
Key West and delivered this Informa
tion to the department. It is under
stood that two of the Spanish captives
now in Fort McPherson, Atlanta, will
be promptly sent down, and the ex
change of prisoners will ho consum
mated without further trouble.
Spain Sel7.es a C:ille.
Liverpool, May 17. The telegraph of
fice at the Island of Grand Canary, near
the center of the Canary islands the
chief city of which is Las Palmas, has
been seized by the Spanish authorities.
All telegrams except the barest com
mercial messages have beeen stopped.
CHAMEERLAIirS LATE SPEECH.
Matter IJrouglit I'p in the Commons ly
the Lflcr.-il and Davit t.
London, May 17. The speech of
Chamberlain, the secretary of state for
the colonies, at Birmingham on Friday
last, is still the sensation of the day,
and was introduced in the house of
commons last evening. During a ques
tion as to the date for the discussion of
the foreign office vote the Liberal lead
er in the house, Sir William Vernon
Harcourt, said the country desired "to
discuss the Birmingham foreign policy."
The remark aroused tremendous cheer
ing. The cheering was intermixed with
Michael Davitt, member for South
Mayo, having read an extract from
Chamberlain's speech in which the lat
ter deprecated the value of Russian
promises, asked the colonial secretary
if he thought such language and senti
ments were consistent with the friendly
relations between the two countries,
but the speaker refused to allow the
question to be put.

Incident In the Criminal Annals of tho
Prairie Stale Capital.
Springfield, Ills., May 17. Joe Morris
has been landed in the county jail and
a charge of murder will probably be
placed against him. Morris went to the
residence of Jane Murray and demanded
to see Lucy Murray, her daughter. He
was refused admittance, whereupon he
broke in the door and grabbinsa lighted
lamp threw it at the girl. The lamp ex
ploded, but Mrs. Murray managed to
throw it into the hall. Her screams at
tracted the attention of Henry Cleve
land. The latter rushed upstairs and extin
guished the blaze. Hearing the com
motion inside the room, where Morris
was beating Lucy Murray, Cleveland
rushed in. Morris attacked him with a
large knife and came near disembcwling
him. Cleveland was taken to t. John's
hospital and the physicians say there
is no hope for his recovery.
Russian Editorial Opinion.
St. Petersburg, May 17. The Novne
Vremya, commenting upon the recent
speech at Birmingham of Chamberlain,
the British secretary of state for the
colonies says: "We doubt if the United
States desires an alliance, and question
whether it would be agreeble to the oth
er powers that the United States, after
wresting the Philippines islands from
Spain, should afterwards sell them to
Great Britain." TheNovoe Vremya says
that display of such an intention would
be "sufficient to induce the powers to
reconsider their neutrality during the
