Alleged To Be of Importance and from the Seat cf War in Cuba. WILL EOT TELL IT TO THE PUBLIO, Which Would Seem to Indicate That It Is Not Pleasant for the Dons. For Sale by Ben Fisher. Heary Firinc Heard In the Direction ol tbo North End of Cuba from Hayti on Two Day*—What the Noise Might Have Been—Washluctoti Official* Know Nothing of a Sea Fight—Bat Oar Squadron* Are 1-ooking for One—Spain's Bitter Complaint. Key West, Fla., May 24.—The report was current last night that the Mangrove has been captured by the Spaniards. Madrid, May 24.—The belief is prevalent in all circles and all sections that the government is in possession of important news from Cuba. Its character has not been made public. Port au Prince. Haytl, May 24.— [Copyright, 1S98, by Asociated Press.]— The following dispatch was received here yesterday from Port de Paix. dated Saturday last, land telegraph communication having been interrupted up to yesterday: "Furious cannonading was heard or. the 19th (Thursday last) In the direction of North Cuba. Today (Saturday) the cannonading continues In lively fashion." [Port de Paix is in the northwestern part of Hayti and the firing referred to may have been from any part of the eastern extremity of Cuba. As the Spaniards claim that Guantanamo was recently bombarded by American warships the sound of firing may have coma from that direction.] , TVashington, May 24.—It was stated at the navy department yesterday at the close of office hours that no dispatches of any kind relating to the movements of the fleets or the prospect of an engagement had been received during the, day, and that the only dispatch received related to an inconse- quental prize case. As the ships are now at sea there is no expectation of reports until' a decisive engagement occurs ancf a dispatch boat gets to a port, or it is found that Cervera has eluded our search. In the meantime there is a complete lack of official data by which to forecast the coming engagement. A report was current during the day that the big battleship Oregon had arrived at Key West, but this was also denied- Our Alleged Use of Spain's Flag. Late in the day dispatches from Madrid giving the sharp debate in the cortes over the .alleged flying of the Spanish flag by American ships created much comment in naval circles. Spain's protest to the powers that this use of the flag was "cowardly and iniquitous" was dismissed by naval officers with the statement that international law writers agreed on the right to use an enemy's flag for the purpose of deceit, so long 1 as the flag is hauled down before a shot is fired. The United States naval regulations make specific provision on this point. The navy department recently issued an edition of Snow's Naval Precedence, a standard work on naval usage in time of peace and war. As to the Matter of Privateering:. The statement made by the Spanish minister of interior that the government is likely to resort to privateering does not cause any apprehension among officials here. One of the highest authorities of the navy department said Spain would adopt privateering if sha felt it to be to her interest without waiting for this country to give any pretext for such action. It Is felt, however, that Great Britain, Germany and France will have considerable to say in case Spain resorts to privateering. The commerce of these countries with the United States would suffer very severely by Spanish privateering, aid ita effect would be far more disastrous to these foreign interests than to the shipping of the United States. INVASION OF THE PHH.IPPINES. Organizing or San Francisco—First Expedition Starts Today. San Francisco, May 24.—The preparations for the first expedition to Manila are absorbing the energies of all the departments of the state as well as the enthusiasm of the people. Nothins seems to be done, but to finish loading the three vessels—the Peking, Aus- traia and Sydney. The first expedition will be divided on the three vessels as follows: The. City of Peking—the First California volunteers, composed of forty-nine officers and 953 enlisted men. ten officers and seventy-one sailors of the navy, making a total of fifty-nine officers and 1,044 men. City of Sydney— Thirteen officers and 318 enlisted taea of the Oregon volunteers; Bine officers and 200 men of the First companies o£ the Fourteenth United States infantry, one officer and fifty men of the California heavy artillery, and Dr. H. B. McVain. ranking medical officer; making a total of twenty-four officers and 670 men. Australia—the headquarters staff and band and two battalions of the Oregon volunteers, comprising thirty-seven officers and 64S men. The troops assigned to depart on the Australia and the City of, Sydney were ordered to report at the docks of their respective vessels at S o'clock this mom- ins. The organization of the mscon* expedition to the Philippines will not b« ^determined until the arrival of General Wesley Merrttt. who is In corn-man* the -whole expedition^__ ^; ,_:_ 'WTL.T. COIXECT PHILIPPINE RKVEKUB Treasury Preparlne to Enforce the Span. tsh Customs There. Washington, May 24.—In anticipation of the early occupation of the Philippine islands by the military and naval rorces of the United States the treasury department ha« already begun the formulation of regulations and a scheme of customs tariffs which will be collected by the military authorities and then turued into the treasury of tha United States as a "military contribution." That the president ha* authority to collect the Philippine revenues un- d»r existing conditions is not a matter of doubt. It was several times done during the last war with Mexico, and the authority of the government in the premises was sustained by decision of. the United States supreme court. The court in a case which gew out of the capture and occupation of San Fran- Cisco and all the upper part of the state of California by the United States troops held that the president, under the constitution, as the commander-in-chie/ of the army and navy, had a right to exercise the belligerent rights of a conqueror and to impose duties on imports as a military contribution for the support of the army. The tariff rates now being prepared by the treasury department will closely follow the Spanish customs laws IB force in the Philippines. Just what revenue they produced is not known, but the assumption is that inasmuch as the home government realized -from them last year approximately J9,000,008 the actual amount collected was $18,500,000. The government will assume control of the revenues as soon as the principal seaports are in our possession and will continue to control them, at least until congress takes specific action In the case or until peace has been declared between the two countries. READY FOR THE DESCENT ON CCBA. Expedition Expected to Start as Soon as the Fleet Reports. Tampa. Fla.. May 24. — Elaborate arrangements have been made for the banquet to be held at Tampa Bay hotel today in honor of Queen Victoria's birthday. Covers for about 250 seats xil'. be laid. Colonel Wylie, of the gov- .ernor of Alabama's staff, will act as toastmaster. Everything waits on news from the fleets. When the long-looked for • and long-hoped for meeting between Admiral Sampson and Cervera takes.place (and military officers do not for a moment question the result) it is the general belief that orders will be given to put the army on board the transports at once. Should the original plan' be carried out of sending only regular troops on the first expedition, the fleet of transports at Port Tampa is amply sufficient for that purpose. TjPith the arrival yesterday of the Irs a uois, Santiago a.nd Cherokee, twen- tyi-fine transports are now at the port, every one fitted ready for embarkation. These ships will easily accommodate between 15,000 and 16.000 men, somewhat over the total number of regular troops in camp here. It'is thought thirty-six hours after orders are issued to embark every man. horse and pound of supplies can be placed on board the vessels in waiting. The first provisional volunteer brigade has been formed. It consists of the Thirty-second Michigan, Third and Fifth Ohio and Second Georgia regiments, with Brigadier General Hawkins, formerly colonel of tha Twentieth United States infantry, in command. All 'of these regiments are in camp at Palmetto beach. Heard a Tremendous Explosion. Key West, Fla., May 24.—The officers of one o£ the United States cruisers which arrived here yesterday say that while off Cape San Antonio (the western extremity of Cuba) Sunday afternoon a terrific explosion was heard from the direction of the shore, but apparently many miles away. There was an upheavel of water all about the ship and the cruiser herself vibrated with the shock from/stem to stern. Many are inclined to think that the phenomenon was an earthquake. Time Up Last Monday. Washington, May 24.—Beginning with the present week all Spanish vessels in United States ports which sailed after the outbreak of war are subject to seizure, as well as all Spanish merchantmen found on the high seas, save where they left port for the United States before April 21 last. The president's proclamation of war allowed such ships lying in our ports or bound for them thirty days in which to discharge cargo, and also insured, them safe passage home. Increase of Naral Becrnita, Washinsrton, May 24. — Commander Hemphill, who has charge of the naval enlistment has made out a table showing that the recent recruiting- of the navy has swelled that branch of the service by recruits from the following- states in part: Michigan, 304; Illinois, 1S2; Wisconsin, 32. Loading for a Cuban Expedition. Mobile. Ala... May 24.—The steamer Fenita is loading ammunition here for a Cuban expedition. Brigadier General Kafael Rodriguez, who was a leading f erure jn the ten years' war, is superintending the loading of several car loads of ammunition and 15,000 rifles and stores. This I* a Tish-crman's Story. New Yo?k. May 24.—A special from Key West to The Evening World says: A fisherman reports that at 2 p. m- Sunday afternoon while he was off Gonaives, on the west coast of this island, he saw three steamers coming from the north and bound south, going at. full speed. Fined for Playing on Snndajr. Indiana,polis. May 24.—The cases of the Indianapolis and Kansas City base ball players who tried to play a Western League game Sunday, came up in police court yesterday.

Chickamauga National Park. Ga,, May 24.—Major General James F.Wade, until recently in command oJ the Fifth corps at Tampa, reported here yesterday to General Brooke, having been assigned by the war department to the command of the Third corps now being formed here. The first division of the First army corps'was reviewed yesterday by its commander. Major General James H. Wiison. Although no particular demonstration was made yet it was a spectacular scene, made doubly Interesting because it will go in history as the first great formal movement by a large body of troops organized for the American-Spanish war. It is moreover said to be the first review of the kind had since the civil war. It began early, in the cool of tae day, before 9 o'clock. The three, brigades of the first division, nine regiments, practically 9,000 men, formed a line of battle, the right resting north of the historic Kelly field. Wa» a Fine Military Scene. Thence it ran a mile perhapi along the ridge, a portion of the command forming in the rear, a second line as if for reserve in an assault. After the usual formal inspection of the line, which took sqme time, tha division formed and moved, in column of fours, changing direction twice until on a line parallel with General Wilson, who eat on a fine horse in front of a group of NEWS FROM THE STATE CAMP*.. GENERAL GKAHAJf. brilliant staff officers. The lines formed with remarkable rapidity and precision. Then, in a column of companies—that is, each company marching in line one behind another—the division advanced in splendid form. It was a grand sight to witness, and all the veterans in the camp enjoyed the unusual spectacle. Showed Tliat War Had Broken Out. Nothing, they said., since the breaking out of the war. had so strikingly emphasized the fact that the hostilities had actually begun as this spectacle. Each regiment in the line had a reputation to maintain, and every company and individual was impressed with the necessity of doing the best possible. The result was singularly gratifying. The marching was, as a rule, In excellent time, the alignments accurate and the 1 distances well maintained. General Wilson expressed himself as delighted and. very proud of the fact that the division when manoeuveringtogetherforthefirst time should act so much like regulars add veterans. With the morning aun glancing from polished arms and trappings and the silken stars and stripes and state flags waving in the breezes that came from Missionary Ridge, the sight was a glorious one and inspired the utmost enthusiasm in both spectators and'men in line.

While there is considerable sickness among- the members of the Sixth Illinois the general health of the camp is excellent. Yesterday seventeen members of the Sixth Illinois were confined to the hospital. The illness in this regiment is due to the exposure of the nuai while en route to the camp. A hospital corps arrived from Fort McHenry, Baltimore, yesterday, and will instruct the volunteers how to take care of the sick. Last Bight 9.050 men were in cainp, and the total will be swelled today to about 12000. It is expected that the regiments now in camp will be organized today into brigades.
