London, May 19—The correspondent at Manila of The Daily Telegraph telegraphs under date of Friday, as follows: "Despite the worries of the blockade the spirits of the Spanish officials are well maintained. The vessels of Admiral Dewey's squadron keep their positions and content themselves with preventing all supplies from reaching the beleagured city. In addition to the Callao the Americans have taken some steamers which were making for the port, and several coasting vessels. Nothing has yet succeeded in running the blockade. Admiral Dewey is credited with n. desire to capture Spanish steamers, as his launches have been scouting around the coast. The Leyte is at present anchored in the River Pampanga "The rebel forces have not yet summoned up courage to attack the city. They are in no condition to do so, but they ravage the country outside. The foreign residents believe that if the city fell into the hands of the rebels it would be deplorable. The governor is creating a royal native legion to assist in coping with rebel attacks, while the Spanish regular troops are reserved to meet any American forces that may be Janded." Hc»ry Failure at Terre Haute. Terre Haute. Ind., May 19.—The Clift & Williams company, owners of a plan- ing mill and contractors, made an assignment Tuesday, with assets estimated at $60,000 and liabilities $45,000. A first mortgage on the plant for $12.500 ia held by Rose Polytechnic institute and other preferred debts amount to $25,000. Of this latter amount $12,000 is due to local banks. Felled a Historical Tree. Lawrenceburg. Ind.. May 19.—Dr. J. H. House, in clearing ground for a new- borne, has cut away a historical apple tree, which stood on a lot owned by E. D. Moore, near the Presbyterip.fi church. The tree was planted nearly three- quarters of a century ago by Henry Ward Beecher, when he was pastor o£ the Presbyterian church in this place. It was sprouted on the historical Harrison farm, near North Bend. O., and was given to the young- preacher by the father of Benjamin Harrison. Beecher dug tha tree up with his own hands and brought it here, planting it within the shadow of the primitive church where he conducted his first pastorate in Indiana.

This Month, TAKES ALOKG 11,000 SOLDIERS Squadron Contain* the Only Battleships in the Nary of the Dons—Only News at Washington In That the Oregon Is Safe and Probably >"ow with Sampson's Squadron—Charleston Starts for Manila with Ammunition, Etc., for Deirey— Bismarck's Criticism on the Present American Policy. Gibraltar, May 19,—The Cadiz reserve squadron is ready for sea. It is expected to sail for the Philippines by the end of Ma.y with 11,000 troops. Washington, May 19.—Secretary Long gave out the welcome information yesterday that the battleship Oregon, the second, largest craft in the American navy, had successfully completed her long trip from San Francisco, making the entire circuit of South America, and TEX ORBOOK. ,was now safe. Whether or not she has joined Admiral Sampson's fleet the secretary would not say. The rigid secrecy of the navy department wag relaxed only enough to make known the best news the navy department had received since the battle of Manila, as It meant not only that the Oregon was out of harm's way from a concerted attack on this one ship by the whole Spanish squadron now in southern waters, but also that her great fighting strength would be added to Admiral Sampson's force in the near future—if, indeed, it had not already augmented the Admiral's strength. Ship Has Traveled 13,000 Miles. The Oregon left San Francisco about, six weeks ago, before the war had opened, and at that time it was not admitted that she was to join the ships in Atlantic waters. She stopped at Callao for dispatches and then went round the Horn and then up the east coast of South America. In all the trip she covered more tb.an 13,000 miles. The last stretch, from Bahia to the Windward islands, has been followed with anxiety by na'val officials, for by a strajige coincidence the formidable Spanish squadron of armored cruisers and torpedo boats approached the Windward islands at the very time when the Oregon was due there. This is why the department has been anxious. Charleston Off for Manila. The cruiser Charleston, which started yesterday on her long journey to meet Admiral Dewe3' at Manila, should arrive in about twenty-five days, allowing a couple of days at Honolulu for coal. Nothing better illustrates the value of the swift long-range cruisers of the type that make up the Spanish flying squadron than the fact that they would be able to make such a run as this directly from San Francisco to Manila without stopping anywhere for "coal at a rate of speed about 25 per cent. greater than the Charleston. The stock of ammunition which the Charleston carries is believed to be the great essential just now, the engagement at Cavite having consumed a large part of the American admiral's shot and shell. BISMARCK TALKS OF THE WAR. Man of "Blut und Eisen" Thinks Uncle Samuel Is AU Wrong. Friedrichsruhe, Mar 19.—[Copyright, 1598, by the Associated Press.]—The cold and rainy weather has increased Prince Bismarck's neuralgia and aggravated the swelling of his legs, and he has been unable to leave his bed for several days. Dr. Schweninger is again here, and is disunited about 'hia patient. The prince is unable to receive visitors, but a correspondent of the Associated Press—from members ot the family—has been" able to .obtain the views of the former chancellor on the war, as expressed by the prince during his most recent talk at the table. In substance they are as folows: Prince Bismarck condemns the war outright. He says it is due to systematic American provocation, which finally became unbearable. He added: "The whole course of the Washington .idmipistration has been insincere. My views of war are' well understood. I have always held it was only defensible after all other remedies have failed. The result of the war cannot be wholesome either to America or Europe. The United States will be forced to adopt an intermeddling policy, leading to unavoidable frictions. She has abandoned her traditional ptace policy, acd in order to maintain her position she most become a military a n <3 a naval power—an expensive luxur/-- which geographical position renders unnecessary. America's change of front means retrogression, in the high sense of civilzation. This is the main regrettable fact about the var." MUSTER OF CITIZEN SOI.DIERS. Volunteer Annj- J.< Close to *00,OOO Strong —At the Chickamansa Camp. Washington. May 19.—Adjutant General Corbin says the Fiftieth Iowa has been ordered to Tampa, Reports received at the adjutant general's office up to 11 o'clock last night indicated that 95.000 volunteers had been mustered in to the service of the United States, The number mustered ia yesterday was comparatively small, because in a. majority of the states'whose troops tav» not already been mustered it was ex-day—th» Rirctaw fcalne eat in passing upon tne pnyslcal qualifications of the volunteers presented.

May 19.—Adjutant General Boardman is busily engaged just now In making out the commissions of the officers of the Wisconsin volunteers who have gone to the front. There are 156 of these. Colonel Schadel will be ready to leave Camp Harvey for Tampa. Fla., with the First regiment this evening, possibly, and surely tomorrow morning. Major Lynch fears that the Milwaukee battalion will leave with very poor equipment. Island Lake, Mich.. May 19.—Allof the companies, but not all the men necessary to fill the Thirty-third and Thirty- fourth regiments, are now provided for. It is believed at headquarters that another call will be made by the president sc-cn. The estimates are that Michigan's ciuota will be three regiments, or 3,078 men. In anticipation of this call several advance applications have been made to the governor for commissions, mainly for the higher positions as field officers. BOCK TACKLES A BIG ISSUE. German-Spaniard Says Thnre Is No Suffer. ing In Large Cuban Towns. Key West. Fla.. May 19.—Senor G. Bock, the wealthy Havana cigar merchant who is waiting here for permission tii g-o to Havana on the German steamer Polaria. denies the stories of the suffering and starvation of the people in the large Cuban towns. He claims to have over 6,400 men working on his tobacco plantations, and incidentally raising food enough for themselves and a lanre community besides. Senor Bock says lie is informed as to the real situation, snd can set as many more men at work raising food stuffs whenever needed. The farmers who are raising produce for the Spaniards, he explains, are armed and protected by the government and he asserts that tha present blockade cannot starve Havana or any other part of Cuba into surrender in a hundred years. When asked what was becoming of the Cuban population meanwhile, he shrugged his shoulders and remarked: "The stories of the burned fields and desolated farms between Havana.Sagua, la Grande and Matanzas told by American investigators were -true when written, but a fortnight puts those farms in working order when protected by the government, and we are raising a crop every forty days. The island wi'Jbecap- tured by the United States—tne force against us is too great—but it will be many months yet. I am a German, yes. I am also a Spaniard, but I wish it were all over tomorrow. Yet it will never be ended as the war is now being carried on. Twenty thousand American troops landed there cannot take the island. It is not like the Philippines. The people of Cuba are armed by the government and they will fight." The naval authorities here are said to be fighting vigorously against the release of the Po"aria. DEATH OF A EOT.
