The Spanish Fleet.. New York, May 16.—A. dispatch to the Herald from Willemstand, Our- acoa, May 15th, says: The Spanish cruisers Vizcaya and Maria Teresa left this -port at o'clock this evening. Their destination is unknown. The four other Spanish warships which were off the harbor disappeared about noon, but thl: evening one of the torpedo boat destroyers was sighted again. While here the two warships took on a small quantity of coal and provisions. Their departure was due to F. Davis aud his innovations in the rowing line. The gig which he has beeu building for the Hudson .River Boat club has been completed, and there cau be no dispute as to its worth. With outriggers, seats and all ready for the •water, it weighs bat 110 pounds. The ontriggers are of steel tubing and so well is the boat trussed that it can be lifted by them. Everything iu or about the boat is done according to Davis' ideas and experience. The seats are set iu a track higher at either end than the middle; the foot rests are made so they can be adjusted iu a moment. Oil the outside of the boat there are no nails, except at the butts. The ribs are held iu place by an adjustable set Borew on either end, which bows them to the shape of the boat. The oars used •will bo sweeps of Davis' own idea. They are fitted with a safety gnard—a lug which prevents the oar being turned below the level. Davis claims it to be absolutely impossible to "catch a crab" when using them. Another idea ia a small, hard robber roller fitted on the feathering side of the oar to save the -wrists. Taken all iu all the boat and fittings represent Davis* idea of what a gig should be, and its fortunes •will be followed York Journal . with interest.—New as provided in the decree of neutrality. There were no colliers with the fleet. A rumor says there are some commercial ships in this vicinity. REGULAR ARMY. Men Sworn in Here Today Will be Sent to Georgia.

Tomorrow «10 silk capes, |6 98,— Trade Palace. * PURE GRAM CREAM OP TARTAR POWDC1 DFL CREAM BAKING POWDHt Awarded Highest Honors, World's Fair, QoW Medal, Midwinter Fair; Bailroatln Hot Materially Affected by Free Transportation of Wheel*. New York railroad officials say it makes practically no difference whether a road carries bicycles free or not as far as patronage is concerned. Cyclists who are caaght out in a storm miles from home or meet with an accident which makes their bicycles useless or who ride out into the country a certain distance, intending to t?.ke the train ou the return trip, will patronize .the railroad whose station is nearest them. With but oae exception the railroads running into New York have not noticed any" increase in the carriage of wheels except what would. naturally resnlt from the recruits to the army of cyclists since the charge for carrying 1 them was abolished. The average cyclist in Greater New York today would rather pay for the transportation of his wheel than be pet to the annoyance of getting it checked, stripping it of all unnecessary accessories, such as lamps, bells, etc., and then pushing it to the baggage car himself, and when the destination is reached handling its delivery. What are needed to increase the patronage of a railroad by cyclists, more than anything else, are good roads surrounding or adjacent to it. No matter what inducements are offered, a railroad surrounded by poor highways can never catch the cyclists, while good roads drive wheelmen to the nearest railroad, whether or not they have to pay for the transportation of their •wheels. It is an open question today whether the members of the New York state division consider the free transportation of bicycles a benefit.—New York Post.
