summarize the debates and results o(
secret sesious of the cortes.
Yesterday in the senate a republican
senator, who holds a high position in
hii party, bitterly attacked the queen
regent. A liberal senator replied, eu
logising the iiioi, arch sylng:
Prudence, moderation and honesty
characterize the upper classes and
resignation and devotion characterize
the people, lU'lween the two are the
politicians, who exploit the country
and ar the real cause of all Spain's mis
fortune." I The republicans are planning obstruc

nounce the P.arcelena bands as anarbists
instead of republican."
The Carlists in the meantime are plot

Omuuhmak, Opposite Khartoum, Sept
J -General Sir Herbert Kitchiener with
the khalifa's black standard, captured
during the battle, entered Omdnrman,
the capital of Mabdiam, at 4 o'clock this
afternoon at the head of the Anglo-
Egyptian expedition, completely routing
the dervishes and dealing a death blow
to Mahdim. Kougnly, our losses were
200, while thousands of the dervishes
were killed or wounded.
Last night the Anglo-Egyptian army
encamped at Algaxa, eight miles from
Ouidurrnan. The dervishes were three
miles distant. At dawn today our cav
a ry, patrolling toward Omdurman, dis
covered the enemy advancing to the at
tack in battle array, chanting war songs.
Their front consisted of infantry and
cavalry, stretched out for two or three
miles. Co intless banners fluttered over
their masses and the copper and brass
drums rebounded through the serried
ranks of the savage warriors, who ad
vanced unwaveringly with all their old
time ardor.
At 7 :20 a. m. the enemy crowded the
ridges abe the camp and advanced
steadily in enveloping formation. At
7:40 our artillery opened fire, which
was answered by the dervish riflemen.
Their att ick developed on our left, and
in accordance with their traditional
tactics they swept down the hillside
with the des gn of reaching our flank.
Put the withering fire maintained for
fifteen nrnutes by all our line frustrated
the attempt, and the drvishes, balked,
swept toward our center, upon which
they contracted a fieri attack. A large
forte of horsemen, trying to face a con
t nuous hail of bullets from the Cameron
highlanders, the Lincolnshire regiment
and the Soudanese, was litterally swept
away, h ading to the withdrawing of the
eniire body, whose dead strewed the
field. The bravery of the dervinh can
hardly be overstated. Those who car
ried the flas ftrupgled to within a few
hundred yards of our fighting line, while
mourned Vmirs absolutely threw their
lives away in bold charges.
When the Jb-rvUh withdrew behind
the ridge in front ol their camp, the
whole force marched on Echelong, after
withdrawing from Omdurman. Afier
our troops surmounted the crest adjoin
ing the Nile, the Soudanese on our right
came into c nfact ith the en my, who
had reformed under cover of a rocky
eminence aud h-.d uiacsed again under
the black standard of the khalifa in or
der to make a supreme effort to retrieve
the fortunes of the day. A maps 03,000
strong bore down on the Soudanese.
General t r Herbert Kitchener swung
round the c- n'er and left of the Soudan
ese, and siezed trie rock eminence, and
the Egyptians, hitherto in resereve,
joined the tiring line in ten minutes and
liefore the dervish cou'd drive their at
tack home.
The lloer of the khalifa's 'army was
caught in a depression and within a
icne of withering cr s-fire from three
brigades, with attendant artillery. The
devoted n ahdists strove heroically to
ni ke ha ul way, but every rush was
topped while their main liody was liter
al y mown down by a sustained and
deadly cross fire. Deflna'ly tho dervish
es p anted their s audardii and died 1-e-aid'!
them, Theirdense masses gradual
ly melted to co i. panics and the com
panies to driblets beneath the leaden
hail. Fit ally they broke and fled leav

Madeid, Sept. 6. The chambers ai
embled here yesterday. Thus far onl;
routine business has been transacted
At the opening of the senate the seer
tary read a letter from Senor Rodriguei
Senator from Porto Kico, refusing to
obey the summons to attend.
The premier, Benor Sagasta, arrayed
in the insignia of his office, sccended
the tribune and read a decree' author
izing the government to present to the
chamber a draft of a law empowering
the ministers to renounce sovereignty
over the colonies in conformity with the
stipulations of peace preliminaries be
tween Spain and the United States.,
The president of the senate proposed
a secret discussion of the decree, and
despite the protests of some senators or
dered that the galleries be cleared,
mid loud murmurs of disapproval.
The chamber soon br-oame involved in
a discussion of press censorship. Tho.
who had expected sensational scones on
the opening of the chamber were dis
appointed. The general public seemed
indifferent. The people at large are ap
parently convinced that Spain must ac
cede to whatever the United States de
mands. A t the close of the censorship discus
don, in which deputies who are journal
ists protested emphatically against the
attitude of the government, Senor Ro
meroy Robiedo demanded immediate
decrees revoking the suspension.
Minister of the Interior Capedpon re
plied that the time was not opportune
to revoke the suspension, and the cham
ber then adjourned.
A dispatch from Barcelona says the
local gendarmerie have surprised and

the true situation of affairs in the archi

Monday were but the oue.rture for far
more important eveuts yesterday, upon
the occasion of the long awaited en-
0D3fce cf Queon WHhpmma, who came
of ago on Auguet 81. The day boyran with
fabite of lnl puns and a inijtic
chorale was performed by trumpeters
from the crenellated towers of the fixe
great churches in Amsterdam. Crowds
of people assembled early in the morning
and took up poHi lions from which to
view 'he rryal procession to the Nieu-
kirk, an edifice that, in spite of its
name, ie 400 years old. By 10 o'clock the
Damplatz presented s magnificent spec
tacle. The center was cleared and the.
sides were densely thronged, the front
places being reserved for the children of
the orphanage. The multitudes were
kept back by lines of troops of all arms.
From the principal gate of the palace
to the church, between lines of naval
cadets, was stretched a gay awning, dec
orated with streamers, and velvet oar
petimr was laid over the short distance
which the queen had to traverse.
At 10:35 the princely families of Saxe
Weimer and Wind drove to the church
escorted by cavalry, w ith barn's playing,
drums beating and the;iroo b presenting
arms. Almost immediately afterward
the que: n'a mother appeared in a state
couch, which was surmounted by a
royal crown upon a criiueon cushion
She received an ovation and was greeted
with endless cheering and cries of "Long
live the queen mother."
About ten minutes after the beating
of drums and the blare of trumpets sig
nalled the fact that Queen Wilhelmine
had left the pahce, and at that very
moment the sun burst from the cloudi
in brilliancy, which was looked upon at
being a happy augary for the youm;
sovereign. The procession was headed
by the king of arm-, with the heraldf
in their gorgeous antiqu; co turtles and
bearing long trumpets adored with
pendant flags'. But all the ' splendor ol
the royal retinue was overlooked by tin
vast crowds of people, whose eyes were
turned upon the contral figure ot thi

was a diadem of diamonds, crown
thaped. Her robe wan white silk, with
a long train, under a mantle of rioh, rec
velvet on which the lions of Xasat
were displayed in gold embroidery. Tin

The Fword of state was carried before
the young queen by a general.
Her majesty carried herself with grac
and fortitude, but be.r blanched cheek

who replied; "promise it."
Soon afterwards the queen left the
church, her mother following her, and
returned to her pa'aoe.
As the queen and her mother passed
on their way to the palace there were
renewed acclamations irom the peop'e
ami when their majesties entered th
