Madrid, May 21.—The government. It Is said, has received a dispatch from Havana "announcing- that the rebels have pronounced in favor of Spain and are now making: common cause with the Spaniards to defeat the Americans." Montreal, May 21.—Senor Polo de Bernabe and his suite went on board the Dominion line steamship Dominion at a late hour last night. The ship 1 sailed early this morning. The senor -efused to talk with reporters. "Washington, May 21,—All of the news that was given out yesterday at the navy department was comprised in the one short bulletin posted at the close of the day stating that the department had information, believed to be authentic, that Admiral Cervera, with his Spanish flying squadron, was at Santiago de Cuba. This went to confirm the newspaper reports and also the Madrid cablegram published yesterday—the latter a rather unusual circumstance, for the Spanish bulletins have been notably deceptive ever since the flying squadron left Cadiz. Accepting this statement as correct it indicates that there is little probability of a hostile meetingbetween Sampson or Schley and Cervera immediately. The experts soon discovered that Santiago de Cuba harbor would be a vertible rat trap for the Spaniards with its narrow entrance, in which a single American monitor Could bottle up the whole Spanish fleet. Expedition to the Philippines. Preparations go on steadily for the Philippine military expedition. General Merritt, who will command, stopped in. Washington yesterday morning- on his way westward from New York and spent most of the day in consultation with the officials of the department arranging the details of the expedition. Another transport was secured yesterday, and the department Is showing a disposition to treat General Merrittwith utmost liberality in the equipment of his force. It is expected that the advance guard on one vessel under the command of General Otis will sail out of the Golden Gate today bound for the Philippines. The complaints of the shoeless among the volunteers just brought Into the army will soon be silenced, as the department Just placed orders for 200,000 pairs of soldiers' shoes. That Alleged Spanish Coaling- Station. Officials here dismiss as pure invention the story coming- from Montreal that Former Minister Polo has succeeded in securing for Spain a coaling station on one of the French islands of t. Pierre and Mlquelon, off the Newfoundland coast. At the French embassy the report is treated with indignant contempt, as the French decree of neutrality is binding on the French governor of these Islands and effectually prevents the granting of such exceptional privileges as coaling- stations. It s not generally known that Francepos- sesses these small islands in the north Atlantic. When the French gave up Canada and Newfoundland to the Brit- sh it was provided in the treaty of Jtrecht that France should retain the wo islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon, i'hich have since been utilized as coal- ng stations for French steamers. Now Cornea the Struggle on the War Revenue Kill. Washington, May 21.—At the conclusion of yesterday's Session of the senate the reading of the war revenue measure had been completed. About severf-eighths of the amendments proposed by the senate committee have been agreed to. Those remaining are the most Important In the bill, and will nrovoke a deal of discussion. The principal amendments yet to be oassed uixm are thoue relating to the issue of bonds and certificates of indebtedness, the tobacco tax, the tax on proprietary articles, the Issue of greenbacks, the coinage of the silver seigniorage, the issue of silver certificates, the inheritance tax and the tax on corporations. The action upon some of the amendments will be dependent upon that.on others. Aldrich offered as a substitute for the paragraphs relating to the coinage of the seigniorage, th,e issue of silver certificates and the issue of legal tender notes, the bond provision prepared' by the Republican minority of the committee on finance. If the bond 1 provision should be accepted by the senate tlJe amendments offered by the Democrats in lieu of it will naturally be rejected. Daniel delivered an extended speech strongly opposing an Issue of bonds. The senate adjourned to Monday. WII/L HONOR QUKEN VICTORIA. British and American Officers to Sleet at B Banquet at Tampa. Tampa, Fla., May 21.—An English warship is expected to arrive in Tampa harbor on May 24, the anniversary of Queen Victoria's birthday, and tba event , will be celebrated by a banquet that will be notable for the number of military and notable for the number of military and naval celebrities who will be present.

Up to this time the estimates and. appropriations already made on account of the war aggregate $295,210,840. Explosion In a Spanish War Factory. Carthagena, Spain, May 21.—An explosion occurred at the chateau San Julian, in the projectile factory. Five soldiers and five workmen were killed outright, and sixty-two persons severely injured, among them the governor of the port. The explosion was accidental. KEY WEST BIG WITH EXPECTATION. 'lefts HaveJLeft There and Great News I* * Looked tor Soon. Key West, Fla., May 21.—The prologue has been spoken; and the curtain is bout to rise on the first act of the rama. This is the unwavering- opinion f caval men here. Dewey's brilliant chievetr.ent at Manila is regarded 23 separate episode. San Juan is xl- eady a memory, and the sporadic en- ounters along the Cuban coast are ac- epted as merely preliminary skirmishes —tentative rather than decisix-e. The meeting of the two great hostile fleets s the pivot upon which the situation urns, and that a few days, perhaps ours, will bring them together is the niversal view here at the base of perations. This view is confirmed by he news that Admiral Cervera's squad- on has reached Santiago de Cuba. The intelligence came yesterday, and If it id not affect the situation it was a ngular coincidence that activity among our ships was perceptibly aeight- ned and the work of coaling and pro- isloning those in the harbor was ushed with more than usual haste. The ships were surreptitously creep- Tts toward the open sea as the day aned, and the ranks of naval men shore were constantly tHinningr until t dusk there was scarcely one to be een. The newspaper dispatch boats av» nearly all departed, with par- cular care not to lose sight of tlw ait*& Stares warships. Tbc C4AMr *C PEESBYTEEIAX ASSEMBLY.

Sunday travel was referred to committee. A resolution urging that President McKinley order that no unnecessary work be done by the army and navy and in the present \va.r, and that battles be not begun on Sunday, met with decided opposition and was finally laid upon the table. The evening session was devoted to pcpular meetings in the interest of the board of publication and Sabbath scliool work. .Addresses were made by missionaries of the board laboring in the west. , Scores on t)ie Diamond.

Poison Was in Their Mindt, The story sent out from here to the effect that three men had been arrested with arsenic on theirpersonswlth which, it was supposed they were to "poison water used by the troops Is a fake, pure and simple, and was evolved from the imagination of several boys wh» are indulging in liquor, cigarettes and other vices, and who are here as alleged correspondents of certain newspapers. There is not the slightest foundation for the story, all wells being under constant guard to prevent pollution as well as waste of water. Frank McReady, Company D. Twelfth New York, died yesterday from heart failure while on the march from Rossville to the camp ground in the park. The remains will be sent to New York city for interment.

New York, May 21.—All that remains of the New York Evening Post's tent at Camp Black, where New York state troops are encamped, is a heap of ashes. It was burned early yesterday morning by indignant volunteers. Tha men first discovered a Spanish flag flying from the pole of The Post's tent. "In a flash it was hauled down and torn- to pieces. Later 300 soldiers charged through the guard, quickly pulled th» tent down and set it on fire. Tha Evening Post has aroused public sentiment owing to its anti-war attitude.

Washington, May 21.—At 10:30 last night it was announced at the adjutant general's office that 104,000 volunteers had been mustered Into the United States army. It is expected that from now until the remainder of the 125,000 men called for have been mustered the •work will proceed very slowly. It is problematical whether the government -will await the slow motions of some of the states. The probability is that it the mustering- of the required quota. i» not completed by the first of next week the call, so far as the delinquent states are concerned, will be canceled and volunteers will be accepted from other ' states.

Y., May 21.—The fight here last night between "Kid" McCoy and Gus Ruhlin resulted to a victory , for McCoy after twenty rounds. The showing made by Huhlin was a surprise. He stood a lot of punishment and was always ready to come back for more. He was apparently strong at the finish. There was a great difference in. the weight of the men, McCoy weighing 157 pounds and Ruhlin tipping thft • scales at 180 pounds. George Siler, of Chicago, acted &• . referee. When he rendered his decision ; Jim Corbett leaped into the ring and asked McCoy to fight him, but the latter declined to consider the matter and refused to make any arrangements.
