May 12.—A special sent out from Mobile telling that Sergeant Crowley had been shot and killed by a, member o£ the Nineteentll infantry who he "was trying to arrest for drunkenness "was made out of whole cloth. There was no shooting'.

MOLE SAN NICOLAS. what appears to be confirmatory newspaper advices relative to the presence or the Spanish Cape Verde fleet a.t Cadiz ihe navy department officials are beginning to entertain strong doubt of the accuracy of the report. It was not possible during the course" of the day to obtain anything like an official con- lirmation of the official report, but this is not to be wondered at in view of the success which the Spanish government has so far met in keeping secret the movements of its ships. Until news comes from Admiral Sampson of his doing in and around Porto Rico it cannot be said definitely what programme we shall be decided on as regards that island. .Alay S«ml S:uitpson Some Soldiers. It has been suggested that some of the *roops now being hurried so rapidly to the gulf coast may be intended to cooperate with Admiral Sampson in the reduction of the fortifications at San Juan de Porto Rico and the subsequent occupation of the island. It is felt that the admiral will be in a rather disagreeable plight, supposing even that he man- •agres to reduce the forts with his fleet, if he were obliged to remain there in occupation of the place for lack of troops, when he might otherwise be urgently needed either on the Cuban coast or somewhere in the Atlantic to meet the Spanish fleet. An evidenceof the wisdom of having" the troops transports near at hand in such cases is shown by the predicament Admiral Dewey is believed to be at Manila, where the lack, of troops Is very seriously felt. Why Hcliiioiil's Oder Wa* Declined. The navy department felt obliged to df-cline the offer made by some wealthy New York gentlemen, headed by O. P. H. Belmont. to build and equip a torpedo boat for the use of the government during the war. Possibly the declination was brought about through the conditions attached to the offer that the boat should be commanded by Bel- mnnt. for without the least reflection upon that gentleman the naval officials have been obliged to decline to establish the precedent of appointing civilians to commands in this way. The practice in some respects would approach priva- teerins", which is distinctly prohibited by the agreement we have voluntarily entered into and proclaimed to the world. ONE <iOOD SPANISH BATTERY. Sant» Clara Drops Projectiles Uncomfortably Close to the Mark. Key West. Fla., May 12.—The blockade of Cuba continues effective. A shore battery at the foot of the hill at Santa Clara, near Havana, has repeatedly opened fire on the gunboats patrolling the inner lir.e of the blockade. This battery flred two shells at the Condition of the War Revenue Measure M Ready fur the Senate. Washington. May 12.—With'the exception of a few administrative features the war revenue bill is ready for report to the senate. This report probably will to* made today, though consideration •f ti» measure will not be beffun bef«r» Monday. With the assistance of Jones of Nevada the Democrats had control of tile finance committee and adopted their amendments, which Include a corporation tax of one-quarter of 1 per cent., a provision for the coinage of the seigniorage, and the issuance of $150,000,000 of greenbacks. The bond provision is eliminated. It required only a little more than an hour for the committee to dispose of the Democratic amendments. It was soon made evident that Jones would vote with the Democrats on all their amendments, and as his vote turned the scale against the Republicans they did r.ot enter into a struggle to prevent this consummation. The vote to strike out the bond feature stodd 6 to 5 as follows: Jones or" Arkansas, White, Turpie. Daniel and Chilton (Dems.), and Jor.es of Nevada, for it, and Allison, Aldrich. Platt of Connecticut, Wolcott and Burrows (all Republicans) against. Morrill and Vest were paired. The bill hardly will be recognized by its authors when reported, as it has been so generally amended in both phraseology and rates as to make it practically a new bill. There are few paragraphs that have not received som« attention. The changes yet to be made are only of minor importance and will dea.l with the administrative, features and in some cases with the grammatical construction of sentences. :N~A One Expedition to Start for Cuba, Another for the Philippine Islands.

London, May 12.—Special dispatchem from Madrid say it is officially declared that the government of Spain has no intention of allowing- Rear Admiral Dewey to rest upon hisvlaurels. About 40,000 men of the reserves of the Spanish army have been ordered to rejoin th« colors ar.d it is added that a formidable expedition is being: organized for .dispatch to the Philippine islands. Washington, May 12. — The army movement on Cuba is now tairtr launched and yesterday's news developed a concerted effort all along th» line to begin aggressive operations on a scale, for the ejectment of the Spanish troops and government from the "Pearl of the Antilles." An order given. yesterday afternoon by the war department for the purchase of 5,000,000 rations is an earnest of the scale on which preparations are making for invasion of Spain's territory. : Of this vast quantity one-fourth IF to go to the Philippines by way of San Francisco, and the balance to Cuba. For some reason that was not discoverable there appeared to be a. temporary cheek in the practical working out of the plans of the war department for this Cuban movement. After everything had been made ready for th« departure Tuesday night. General Miles was detained and for a time yesterday the rather g-loomy prospect of an indefinite postponement of the first mllltai'y expedition was presented. ObKtacle Was Finally Removed. Later on, however, the obstacle, whatever it was, was removed, and it -was again announced that the commanding general with a numerous staff would eave Washington today directly for Tampa. The department ban made a at many changes in the original programme for the concentration ot troops and -many bodies of volunteers that were originally slated for one of the jrreat concentration camps hav«! lound thc-mselves suddenly under orders to proceed direct to southern points, so that soon volunteers from the cut and middle w*st will be moving swiftly to Horida a.nd the gulf, while from the far went thf: cars will be carrying troops to San Francisco.
