Washington, May 25.—There was a lapse into sensational war rumors in Washington yesterday after a week of comparatively quietude. The rumors rang-ed all the way from the capture of the little Mangrove with' a crew o£ thirteen men to the reported de- .struction of the entire Spanish fleet by Sampson's and Schley's combined forces. They were circulated wUh persistence, notwithstanding their denial as soon as they could be brought to the attention of any official capable of passing: judgment on their accuracy. As the day rolled along- the officials themselves became apprehensive, as was shown by the frequency with which they called for the latest newspaper bulletins. At the close of the day, however, it was again announced in the most positive manner that the navy department had no information to warrant the report of any sort of engagement in the Windward Passage. Covers the Case Pretty Thoroughly. This did not specifically cover the waters of the West Indies, but in view of the fact that the department has almost pledged itself to let the public know of anything- in the nature of'a general engag-einent, possibly the bulletin announcement is sufficient to cover the case. When Secretary- Long started for home after an exceptionally busy day he stated to a group of newspaper men that the department had received no inform'ation of importance. In response to an inquiry as to where the Spanish fleet was located. Tidng replied that his belief was that it was still at Santiago de Cuba. Concerning the .reported rapture of the Mangrove and the loss of other ships the secretary said that word had come from the commander of the Mangrove since the time of the alleged capture, showing that the ship could not have been in the hands of the Spanish. Spaniards Are Very Active, The Spaniards appear to be making ready for something more than a defensive campaign at home: or at least they are trying to create chat impression by other means than news bulletins: The navy department now has through its own reliable sources reports of the greatest activity in the Spanish navy yards, and of the preparation for sea and for a long voyage of two of ths torpedo boat destroyers. It s given out that they are to join Cervera immediately, when his squadron enters Cadiz harbor. Possibly this statement is made with a deliberate purpose of misleading American sail- ers into the belief that Ce-rvera has- taken his way homeward. LOCATION OF OCK FLEETS. Nothing Positive That Reveals th« Situation in the West Indies. London, May 25.—The following dispatch has been received from Madrid 3at«i 1 a. m., Wednesday: "Nothing positive is revealed as to the situation. Uieutenant Genera! Corres, minister of \var, has received a cablegram from General Blanco saying that American warships are in front of Santiago, Captain Aunon, minister of marine, has received a lengthy dispatclj from Admiral Cervera. replying in full to instructions. The minister of marine receives nobody. He ia working day and right. Yesterday he presented to the queen resent every detail of the plans at Santiago de Cuba, showing- the de- fences and the security of Admiral Cervera's squadron. "Admiral Camara has gone back to Cadiz with sealed orders. It is said that on his arrival there he will arrange for manoeuvres of his ships at sea, for trials of speed, gunnery and everything necessary to satisfy himself that the squadron is in efficient condition. He will depart for a destination undiyulyed. Senor Capdepon, minister of the interior, says a telegram received by the war office from Manila reports that the natives are disposed to remain loyal to Spain and . will defend the territory •gainst forei»m invasion."

Kingrston, Jamaica, May 25. —[Copyright, 189S, by Associated Press.]—The Spanish consul here, acting- under ths nuetraJity proclamation, asks of the colonial authorities the right to search the steamer Adula when she arrives from Cienfuegos tonigtit. He is in search of dispatches from the American blockading- fleet to the navy department, and of communications from spies. He avers that on her previous trip from Cienfue- gros the A-dula brought mail from th United States cruiser Marblehead, am he cites the British neutrality laws clarinjj that official dispatches are con traband. The colonial authorities, after inquiry replied that no proof existed of the ex istence of official dispatches from th • Mayblehead. but only of the personal letters of officers and men, which-•wen accepted as an act of courtesy for mailing here. The Spanish consul persist ing in his demand for the privilege t< si-arch all packages sealed or unsealed and the persons of passengers, the co Ionia! government replied that auch a thins? could not be allowed withou proof of reasonable probability. The colonial authorities are understood to have inquired of London for advice. LATEST NEWS FROM MACTI.A. Where They Arp Supposed To "B«—" a Circle of Cuba. Associated Press Dispatch Boat Dandy, \Tonteg-o Bay. Jamaica, May 25.—[Copyright, 1S9S. by Associated Press.]—The vaters south of Cuba have suddenly become the scene of great naval activity. Commodore Schley, who left Key West ast Thursday .with the battleships ilassachusetts and Texas, the armored •ruiser Brooklyn and the armed yacht Scorpion, is believed to be cruising off Cienfueeos and Santiagode Cuba, When the Da.r,dy loft Key West last Friday norning Admiral Sampson was still here.

The battleship Iowa followed Comroo- lore Schley on Friday, but was over- aken off Cape San Antonio on Saturday by the torpedo boat Dupont with ecret instructions. The battleship immediately increased her speed to the mit. and when last seen was guard- ng the entrance to the passag-ebetween the Isle of Pines and Cuba. Ths Du- »ont rushed on toward Cienfueg»s.

Hong Kong-, May 25.—The Japanese cruiser Akitsushitma. which arrived here yesterday from Manila, reports that when she left there rioting had broken out and a number of houses had been burned. Food was daily becoming: scarcer, and horse flesh was sold at Jl.50 a pound. The Spanish volunteers were making angry demands for pay and food, which the Spaniards were utterly unable to satisfy. The cruiser reports that Admiral Montijo is awaiting- trial by court martial for alleged incom- petency during the engagement with the United States squadron under Commodore Dewey, while the captain of the Spanish revenue cutter Callao, captured by the American warships, is to be shot for not making- resistance. Aguinaldo, the insurgent leader, had a great reception on his arrival at the Philippines from Hong Kong. Rear Admiral Dewey supplied the insurgents with two guns.and 300 rifles, and at the time the Japanese cruiser left Aguinaldo was expected to make an immediate attack. The archibstiop of Manila, announcing in a pastoral thai four Spanish warships -were coming, promised victory for the Spaniards. Philippine Expedition and Hawaii. Washington. May 25.—The Philippines expedition is now off ia dead earnest. The sending of these ships will affect the Hawaiian question vitally. Like the Charleston the transports must stop at Hawaii to replenish their coal bunkers from the great hea.ps of coal that Consul General Howard has been piling up for months past. If the Ha- v.-aiiars let us take this coal without the pretext rhat we are using- it to make our way to our nearest home port—as required by international law in such case?—they will stand convicted of a gross breach of neutrality that in the eyes of the law of nations allies them with the United States in hostility t-i Spain. The taking of coal by the American ships at Hawaii to make an extensive campaign against the Spanish possessions it is believed here will result in compeHins the United States either to a^ume a protectorate over tile islands or to annex them. Blanco Is Not Tet Cat Of. "Washington. May 25.—Late yesterday afternoon it was ascertained that the cable from Santiago that was cut by the American warship St. Louis was not the line controlled by the French company running from Santiago to Hayti through Guantanamo, but »ne of the two English cables running- £rom Santiago south to Jamaica- General Blar.co therefore is not isolated from the rest of the world, but can still com- mum'cate with the home Ro-vernment br either th<? ; French cable groins to Hayti •9T th* Epelisb, one nmatce to Jamaica.

The movements were under command of General Wilson, and the men-were put through the exercises in a very thorough manner. The regiments of the division have been in camp long enough to have become somewhat inured to the ciimate. as well as the work, and the manoeuvres were characterized by great energy, accuracy and remarkable precision.
