Washing-ton, May 23.—The navy department has posted the following bulletin: "There is no truth in the published statement concerning an engagement off St. Nicholas Mole, Hayti, In which twelve Spanish ships were sunk." Gibraltar, May 23.—An unconfirmed rumor is in circulation here that the Spanish squadron at Cadiz is about to sail for Cuban waters. Madrid, May 23.—An official dispatch from Captain General Blanco says some Amercaa warships shelled the forts guarding; the water approach tQ-N vitas, province of Puerto Principe, on Thursday nig-ht last. Madrid, May 23.—An official dispatch from Havana says: Two American warships attempted to force an entrance at Isabela Sagua (near the mouth o"f the Sagua river, Santa Clara province, on the north coast). The tnops were massed upon the shore and compelled the Americana to retire. Washington. May 23.—The rumors of » great naval battle, current -Saturday nignt, were disposed of by the navy department early yesterday in the plainest kind of "United States." As a rule the navy departmentadopts the cautious phra.=enlogry of stating- that no official information has been received, but to make assurance doubly sure in this case, the department declared there was "no truth" in the reports. This indicates tliat the official information is such as to warrant the statement that the American and Spanish squadrons have not met. The bureau of navigation, navy department, where official dispatches are received, was opon throughout yesterday, but everything was serene. In the absence of exact information as to the location of the fleets serenity in naval circles is a fair indication that the official advices do not give promise of an immemdiate eu- gagement. Wants to Make It a Crusher.. It is evidently the view of the -war board that an engagement, if it can be broug-ht on, will be decisive of the whole war. and there is no purpose to aJIow such momentous results to go off on a fluke, or on a too precipitous move, in deference to the public pressure for re- THE MONTERET. suits, but to move firmly yet cautiously and insure a victory when there is a fight. One thing may be "posted in your hat"—there will be no news from Washington, or Key West that will give the slightest hint as to where the United States fleet i« or is not. or what moves, naval or military, are to be made. The censorship of telegrams is complete; nothing: goes out that has not been examined by the government censor, and nothing will be allowed to go out. Monterey Goes to Maaila. The news event at the navy department is the dispatch of the order to th» Monterey to proceed to Manila to re- nforce Admiral Dewey's squadron. The Monterey is a tower of strength in herself and her addition to Admiral Dew•y's force, together with the dispatch of troops to Manila, is ample evidenc that the administration has assumed no half-hearted attitude toward the Philip- Dines question, and is determined to lake no chance of dispossession until such time as the United States itself ias arranged for the disposition of the slands. Major General Wesley Merritt concluded his business at the war detriment Saturday afternoon and at 3 o'clock began his journey to San Francisco, whence he will take charge of the xpeditlon to the Philippines. There will be between 1.200 and 1,500 men in the first detachment to go. THEY AKK AIX FOK TTAK Dr. Paal's Pennyroyal Pills ss&s&s For Sale by Ben Fisher. Those Spanish Ministers, Keirardless of Their Other Diflerenees. Madrid, May ">3.—Senor Capdepon, minster of the interor, has denied in the course of an intervew that the change !n the consttution of-the ministry will nvolve any alteration in the foreignpot- ,cy of Spain, all the new ministers be- in favor of prosecuting the war to the end with the utmost energy. "Spain." said Capendon, "went perilousJy near sacrificing her honor in the interest of peace, only making a stand whec further concessions would have involved her diagrace and effaceroent as a nation. 'This she will never do, and in this rwolve the new cabinet is as thor- oushly determined as the old. The new. cabinet entertains no illusions.

COAL FOK CERVEKA'S FLEET. Dispatch Indicating That H» Has from Sampson. SL Pierre, Martinique, May 23.— [Copyright, 1S98, by Associated Press.] Admiral Cervera's squadron, it is reported on good authority, will return to these waters to coal. It is known that 3. number of Spanish colliers are on their way to Fort de France. The British steamer Twickenham has been refused the privilege of coaling the Spanish tordepo boat destroyer Terror and the hospital ship Alicante in the Fort de France harbor. It is therefore thought that these vessels will coal from her at sea, and that she will then go tc meet Admiral Cervera's sqttad- ron for the same purpose. Twickenham curries 4,000 tons of coal. Late yesterday afternoon an unknown man-of-war was yi.sh.ted off the southeast coast of Martinique. The Alicante has again. changed her moorings, and the departure of the Terror and the Alicante Is momentarily expected. DEATH OF EDWABD BELLAMY. Famous Author of "Looking Backward" Passes to th« Other Shore. Sringfield. Mass., May 23.— Edward Bellamy, the author and humanitarian, eiit early yesterday morning at his hoijie in Chicope Falls, In the 49th year of bis age. Bellamy had been in feeble -health ever since hefinished his "Equality;":some eight months ago. He was bortr in Chicopee Falls on March 26, 1850. He was educated for the law, but drifted into journalism and was in that profession for a number of years, meanwhile writing a number of books. It -was in 1SSS that his famous book "Looking Backward" was published. "Looking Backward" has been translated into German, French, Russian, Italian. Arabic, Bulgarian and several other languages. 3>ec. 20, 1891. he issued the first number; of "The New Nation," a paper des- tin^d to become the most quoted and influential political or evolutionary jour- r.in the world. An idea of its influ- endf may be judged from the fact since "Tae New Nation" was started over 350 papers devoted to nationalismhavebeen .aunched in the United States, Canada andf Mexico, and thousands of papers through the direct inspiration of "The New Nation" have started departments d,etoted to political reform which are cfe&ucted and edited from the writings of Bellamj' in "The New Nation" and "Looking Backward." He leaves a widow and three children. WDTOffA'S PATEIOTIC DAT. Presbyterian Commissioners Devote One Session to War Talk.
