Washington, May 7.—One feature oC the session of the cabinet yesterday was a discussion of the attitude of Che senate in providing the "sinews of war" for defraying th» 'expenditures of the u-ar. The president has received positive information that the senate committee on finance, which is still struggling with the revenue bill, will report that measure with the bond feature eliminated. diplomatic quarters here. The state department has received no suggestion of such intervention, and does not believe it is contemplated. The foreign representatives here, including those of Great Britain, France. Germany, aM Russia, inset these reports with specific denials, and declare that intervention is not being discussed in any way" at the present time. These officials have ;wt>n fully conversant with a.11 previous Moves towards inu-. ,-...<..mi. and they doubtless would i>- :i w'aiv if such a move was on foot at present. The utterance of Hmneror Willilam before the? reit-hstas yesterday confirmed what the German officials here have maintained frc.m the first—namely, that Gtrrrr, any \\nuttl observe strict neutrality, even thourhno decree of neutrality was issued. T.assian officials take the same views ILS to the purpose of Russia to keep out m" any intervention which ivould Iw inimical to the United States. The French authorities here do not consider intervention a live question at present, and since France issued her dei re<; of neutrality the French officials dimis.s reports that France will participate in intervention. ' The Bri tish officials have received no word i-nnoernins 1 recent moves for in- terventior:. and they consider such moves as quite inopportune under existing circumstances. A leading member of the diplomatic corps said: "What could we intervene about? It could not be because the United States had occupied the Philippines, because w.e do not yet know that the Philippines ar« epupied. It could not be because Porto Rico may be occupied, for we have no official information yet that any movement against that island is con- emplated In fact, .even if continental Europe desires to intervene, it has no 'acts before it thus far on which to base ntervention."

Hay 7.—After another day of waiting in the navy and state departmentsthedoors were again closied in the evening; yesterday without a.word from OmmodoreDeweyoranyother reliable source as to what happened at Manila after the cable broke. During the course of the day there were rumors that the cable communication had been restored, but these were soon found to be baseless and the excitement sub- Sided. One comfort the officials take in the situation, although it is of a nejija- tive Character, is that the lack of communication is a probable evidence that the Spaniards, at least, are not in .control of Manila, else they would speedily communicate that fact to the rest of the world through the cable. If the delay means anything it is believed not to be more serious than that Commodore Dewey has been delayed- in car- ryinsr out fully his plans for the occupation of Manila. M list Give the Commodore Time. In other words, it maj- not have been possible for the commodore, within the space of five days, to effect the destruction of the Spanish fleet, the silencing of the forts at Cavite, the seizure of Corregidor, the capture of Manila, and finally the restoration of cable communication, if he has been delayed beyond Tuesday or Wednesday in carrying- out this extensive programme it is not at all surprising that he has not been heard from through a dispatch boat. The state department is in close touch with Consul Wildman at Hong Kong, who is expected to supply the earliest possible news from the Philippines. The only messagre received from the consul yesterday was one-informing thedepart- mems thnt four families of refugees in the Philippines had petitioned for admission tn the United Statescitizenship, somethinjr manifestly impossible for the consul to grant under the naturalization laws. AVill Hi'nr of Sampson TTlieu He Strike?*. Respecting Admiral Sampson's movements the department is still mute, although it i? apparent that interesting rif«s is expec-ted on that subject within the next three day=. Therefore it is quitf certain that the rumor which originated in L.ondon to the effect that Sampson ha? undertaken a. campaign in the Canaries i? dismissed without, attracting attention at the hands of the officials, since it would be manifestly impossible for the admiral to arrive at the Canaries within ?o short a space of time as thivi? days. A leading diplomatic official said there was no reason why foreiam nations shouid be given in- formaucr. of an attack on the Canaries, Since the United States was conducting a war it had the right, Se said, to choose :ts own points of attack without keep- Was a Mistake and the Blue Jackets Will Get Nu Prize Money. Wahlngl.on, May 7.—Any international difficulty connected with the seizure of the French steamer LaFayette has bee-n removed by the prompt release of the vessel immediately upon notice of her capture reaching the state department. The explanation for this action on the part of the administration is given in the statement which follows, issued from the White House lastnight: "The LaFayette was released in pursuance of orders which were issued by the navy department previously to her seizure, but which had not been received by the commanding officers of the vessels that made the capture. "The facts are that on April 23 the French embassy made an informal, inquiry as to whether the LaFayette, which left St. Nazaire, France, for Vera Cruz, by way of Havana, before war was decls.red or information of the blockade was received, would beaUowed to land ai. Havana certain passengers, htf mail hags and the dispatch bag' of the consul general of France, arid take some French passengers on board. An asuranee was given that if this privilege should be granted the steamer would be -forbidden by the French consul to lar.d goods. "The matter was duly considered, and it was decided that without regard to the strict law of blockade, and as an act of courtesy, the request of the French government should be acceded to. Orders were accordingly sent on the 2d dair of May. When information wai= received of the capture of the steamer and of her having been brought to Key West these orders were communicated to the captors with instructions to release the steamer and to see THE AEMT'S OUTDOOR PAXTKY. regiment began yesterday afternoon Company B, of the Third, commanded by Captain Preston, of Joliet, was examined first, he being the ranking tain 11 f the First battalion.

A grand military review may be given Governor Tanner that day.

Since the rigid examinations encountered a fewcompaniesat Camp -an- ner are not full to the maximum, and the officers have asked to send to the home stations for recruits. A general order was issued yesterday covering the case, which orders that "civilians brought to Camp Tanner from home stations for the purpose of filling companies to the minimum or maximum required by law. will be transported to Camp Tanner by the state of Illinois, that the orders were fully'delivered, so [ ' ; "-'t all men rejVcied by the surgeons, or that thi?y might be carried into effect Xo demand was made either by or on behalf of the French government, di rec-tly or indirectly, for the steamer's release." MIGHTY CUTE, THAT, OF DEWET. But No! Hiilf So Cute as the Constructor ot' This Special. Xew York, May 7. — A special to The Journal from Montreal says: A speeia, to .La Presse from Madrid states that Commodore Dewey's squadron could only ge-t an entrance into Manila, bay- by first severing- the wires connecting the submarine torpedo system with the foris. This having been done, Dewey had no dilfk-ulty in doing what he did; that is to sail into the bay as on the hicb seas. The special then goes oh to say that he engaged the Spanish squadron. with the result as told. But it ap- prars thnt during the fight the Spanish amhoritiesi set to work reconstructing the wires under the fire of the American warships. The severed wires were patched so quickly that before the fight was over no ships could move any more in the bay without the greatest danger of being blown up. Now. says the special to T.a Presse. this startling piece of news reached Madrid in the form of a cipher dispatch frnm Hong Kong, where it was discreetly circulated among the leaders of the Spanish groups. The dispatch seems to be the only explanationof that fivr days' silence from Dewey's squadron.

Captain Swift ft-ill in a few days l>e made major of the Third battalion of the Seventh regiment, being formed to fill up the regiment, which formerly had but two battalions and two majors. Captain Swift has been assistant inspector general of the I. X. G., and has finally secured a place with the Illinois troops in the field. He still retains his position in the United States army. He will be succeeded here by Captain C. S, Roberts. Seventeenth regiment, TJ. S. A., who has already arrived here. IN A HURRY FOB BADGERS. Washington Wants la Know How Soon » ReKimrnt Can Be Keady. Camp Harvey. \Vis., May 7.—Captain Buck, the regular army officer here who is to muster in the soldiers, re- ceivpd a telegram from the war depart- !ii»nt asking him how many troops he wa? or tne sami? tenor as the one referred to above and he sent back the same reply.

They are Iwavy. substantial, serviceable articles. ; General linardman is wearing a pair of them himself, in order to determine by per- snnal experience ihe justice of any kicks which may be registered. He has found the shoes he wears comfortable andsat- isfao-ury. A tent used by Company I, of ths First regiment. Captain Manion, caught fire Thursday evening and th« chemical had its first run. The fire was put out with trifling loss. The second week at Camp Harvey commenced yesterday with a bright sun and a. northeast wind, which hn.s thoroughly drieit up the camp. The weather was sUH chilly. It was essentially s. dull day in camp, and little outside <>f the ordinary routine transpired.

West Superior, four fell by the wayside. Th« Toman company, 100 stronpr. Company K, lost four men. Ten companies of the Third regiment had been examined up to noon . yesterday. Two more companies, finishing the Third regiment. were handled in the afternoon and then work was commenced en the field and,staff, officers of the Second regiment. Lack of muscular development and lack of \\eight is the commonest cause for rejecting men who want to be soldiers. The heig-ht most desired Is from 5 feet f inches to 5 feet 9 inches.

New York, May 7.—Bradstreet's says: Evidences accumulate that the corner has finally been turned in the trade situation and that circumstances \vhicb, have hitherto been regarded as disquieting- have begun to give way to more cheerful conditions. While it is claimed, and perhaps with justice in many cases, that the changes yet noted are largfiiy sentimental, and that little that is tangible is to be cited in the direction of improvement, it is not to b* forgotten that the dullness a.ml even' degression ruling for some time past was likewise largely sentimental,, and— t is now" beginning- to be admitted by- many—had even less of a basis to rest upon than the present unmistaka*)* signs of improvement. A new sense of national strength and energy seems unquestionably to have developed since the news of the Ameri- victory at Manila. Among the more favorable features of the week have been the slightly easier tone in the money market and a little more disposl- ion on the part of financial institutions o accommodate legitimate demands of rade. Prices for wheat, on seaboard and at the interior, have broken all records or many years past, due to a consider- ble extent lo foi-elfi-n recosrnition of the act that the world's wheat stocks to- ay are smaller than they have been. or many years past.
