Caracoa, Dutch West Indies, May IS. —[Copyright, 1S3S, by the Associated Press.]—The Spanish fleet is now supposed to be off the coast of Venezuela, or off the coast of Colombia. t On!y a portion of the fleet was allowed to enter .this harbor to obtain provisions, cattle and coal, which were purchased here. Confirmation was obtained of the report that the Spaniards left one of their torpedo gunboats at Fort d France, island of Martinique. London, May 18, — A special Hong Kong dispatch says it is expected tha owing to the blockade and trie resultin famine Manila will soon capitulate tc Admiral Dewey. Madrid, Hay 18.—An official dispatch from Havai^. confirms the report o the blowing up of an American vesse off Cardenas and the killing of eighteen on board. [Note.—The above is believed to refe: to the blowing up of a derelict thi Spaniards had set as a trap for some o our boats to collide with.] •mpioyea in Havana, it is further alleged that upon the prisoners were found revolvers, cartridges, interesting documents and a camera. Advices received here confirm the report that Freeman, Halstead. the American newspaper correspondent arrested at San Juan de Porto Rico, was taken into custody while in the act of taking photographs of the fortifications. A report is current here that the Spanish flotilla at Havana is about to make another sortie. Havana. May IS.—[Copyright, 1S9S. by the Associated Press.]—Inquiries made at the palace here show that Captain General Blanco was unwilling to receive Lieutenat Brainard. TJ. S. N., the special agent of the government of the t/aited States in the matter of the proposal to exchange Spanish prisoners for the two newspaper men, Thrall and Jones, because the general considered the lieutenant was not empowered with sufficient authority. Therefore, he simply accepted the documents presented by the lieutenant and consulted with the Spanish government on the subject. The answer from Madrid has not yet been received. News just received here from Porto Paco confirms the report that Freeman Halstead. an American correspondent, has been sentenced by a militair court martial at San Juan de Porto Rico to nine years' imprisonment, after having been convicted of taking pictures of the forts with use of a camera. TALK AT THE CUBAN CAPITA!,. Washington, May IS.—The officla bulletin boards yesterday failed t& yield any news of the movements of either o the three fleets—Sampson's, Schley'sanc the Spanish (lying- squadron—and there is reason to believe that the department itself has received no information on that point. The department officials are beginning to show a little sensitiveness to criticism in the matter of delay in bringing the Spanish fleet into action conscious as they are that they have ina£e all dispatch compatible t^ith due •regard for-the safety of our own ports as well as of the lives of the crews of our warships. Every day there is talk of a. change in the naval plans brought about by some movement of the Spanish squadron, but what the latest phase of campaign is nobody outside of the members of the war board is competent to say. Supposed American >'aval Plan. The general immpression is that no particular effort is to be made just now to pursue the Spaniards, so long as they keep within the confines of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean sea, but that Sampson and Schley, in combination, will encircle the island of Cuba, maintain the blockade, and convoy troops across the Florida straits if necessary, meanwhile simply keeping a watch on the Spanish flying squadron to see that it does not do mischief either to the American fleet, or—by escaping into the Atlantic—to the seaboard cities. By this plan the military and naval official* might hope to silence the rather sever* criticisms that are being expressed because of delays in opening the military campaign in Cuba itself. "On to Richmond" Cry Again . Considerable pressure has come upon the administration from congressional quarters to have the campaign hastened, and there are thought to be signs of a resumption of the plans of the military leaders for the invasion of Cuba at the point where they were suddenly suspended by the announcement of the arrival of the Spanish flying squadron at Martinique. At army headquarters there was no sign of immediate departure, but in view of the fact that three times, at least, everything has been prepared for a movement to Tampa it may be presumed that everything is in train for departure at short notice without open manifestation of preparations. Expedition to the Philippine!. As to the Philippine expedition the department has known for some time that its military advisers opposed the sending of less than 15,000 men to.Ma- nila, and that at least a third of them should be seasoned troops from the regular army, capable of meeting on even terms the veteran Spanish soldiers who garrison Manila. To endeavor to over- corn" the Spanish force with less than half their number of'rroops would seem to b» a senseless proceeding, in view of the fact that there is no necessity for such a course. General Merritt took occasion to deny very emphaticaliy the accuracy of certain newspaper interviews published yesterday which placed hin: in the position of refusing to obey an order to proceed to the Philippines because his force was insufficient. The officials at the department upon seeing these publications did not hesitate to express at once their belief that General MMritt was too good a soldier to refuse a lawful order. BLANCO SAVS THET AEE SPIES. Prospect Looks I>arfc for the Two Capt«r»d Correspondents. Madrid. May IS.—It is announced here In a. dispatch from Havana that after the arrival of the Uncas off that port the; two captured American newspaper men were examined, and it Is added that the inquiry revealed the fact that' they could not be considered as prisoners of war, but must be looked up as on e.beiriE.. it Is cjajoied. & Cuban l>ama*e Done to Porto Kico by Sampson Declared Very Small. Havana, May IS—[Copyright, 1898, By the Associated Press.]—All sorts of war rumors are in circulation here from Spanish sources. Among them it is said that a woman and child killed during a bombardment of Cardenas by American vessels were the wife and daughter of one of the pilots on the American ships. The Spaniards say an American force attempted to make a landing on May 13 at Tacla Agua beach, and that after two hours' firing the Americans retired. Captain General Blanco has definitely appointed the secretaries of the colonial council, who have been re-elected. They are: Senor Galvez, president of the council; Senor Montero. secretary of finance; Senor Govin, secretary of justice; Senor Dolz, secretary of public works and communications; Ser.or Rodrigruez, secretary of commerce: Senor Zayas, secretary of public instruction. The captain general of Porto Rico has cabled to Captain General Blanco, say- inar that although the bombardment of San Juan de Porto Rico took place at rifle-shot distance not a gun of the forts was silenced and. he adds, the Spanish losses were only eighteen men wounded among the troops composing the garrison and a few persons wounded amon; the civil population of the place. TheLucha in an. editorial article says: "The "American government gave the Spanish government forty-eight hours to remove its troops from this island, and it now finds attertwenty-three days of blockade, that it cannot land American troops. Apparently the island'con- tains more soldiers than they thought. Such a number could not be removed in forty-eight hours." DEWEY KXEW WHERE HE WENT.

Cincinnati, May 18.—Mr. William Doherty. an ornithologist and entomologist, who In the interest of science has traversed the four«quarters of the grlobe and has achieved a reputation as far- reaching as his travels, has just returned from the Philippine islands, via lions' Kong and San Francisco, to rest a year ivi'.h his parents in Mount Auburn, this city. His latest distinction was in successfully passing the Spanish customs officers at Manila, with complete plans of the city, the harbor, the fortifications, and minute details of their armament from Consul General Williams to Admiral George Dewey. It was a dangerous proceeding, but Doherty carried it to a. successful accomplishment. Arriving at Hong Kongr early In April he delivered the supremely important papers to Admiral Dewey on the Ol3 - mpia, London, May 18. — The Hong Kong correspondent of The Standard says: It is expected, owing to the strict blockade and the famine resulting from t, that the city of Manila will soon be compelled to capitulate to the American blockading squadron under Admiral Dewey."
