Humors of Rebellion in King

Control of Government.
London, June 16. Rumors of a se
rious revolutionary movement in
Spain are given prominence in a lec
tion of the press. There has been an
almost complete absence of Dews from
the peninsula since the appointment
ot the new ministry.
Rumors of something abnormal in
the Spanish situation have been given
prominence in the last two or three
days in a small section of the press
and today several papers print ar
ticles declaring that something im
portant is happening.
One suggestion is that a movement
to bring Spain into the war is ma
terializing, but the little information
available, is to the effect that the crisis
is purely a dotestic one and largely
due to the demand for reforms by the
rank and file of the army.
According to the Express, the
army has obtained complete domi
nance, military "committees of de
tense" have been established and have
tabulated a list of the reforms de
manded by the army. The action of
the committee, says the Express, is a
more or less vivid reflection of what
happened in Petrograd.
The Daily News reports serious in
dustrial unrest. Labor troubles are
partly explainable by the widespread
poverty to which high- food prices
have brought the people.
In all the reports there are allusions
to German influences working for
their own ends. The Spanish em
bassy in London disclaims knowledge
of anything unusual, but it is stated
that neither commercial firms or
newspapers are able to get replies to
