Key West, Fla.. May 2«.—Colonel Jimenez, the alleged Spanish spy. is not a spy at all. He was a passenger on the steamer Panama and is. therefore, being held on board as a ordinary prisoner of war. In response to a telegram from the north United States Marshal Horr made an investijatlon to find out if Jimenez had a map and chart in his possession. As the Panama left New- York before war was declared he had a i-^ght to buy any charts he wanted to. Furthermore, persons arrested on the high seas cannot be arraigned as spies.

London, May 26.—The Madrid correspondent of The Daily Mail says: "Official telegrams from Cuba confirm the report that Rear Admiral Sampson and Commodore Schley, with their combined squadron, are now in front of Santiago de Cuba, blockading Admiral Cervera. Washington, May 26.—The event of the day in the war situation was the issuance of a. proclamation by the president calling for 75,000 more volunteers. It addad a new and stirring phase to the lethargic conditions which have prevailed of late, and came with almost startling unexpectedness even to many of the high official officers in the army. The proclamation means not only the a»s«mblimr of a large force of troops but also the appointment of a number of major generals, brigadier generals, colonels, majors and staff and field officers, for the organization of this additional force of 75,000 men into armT corps, divisions, brigad-es and regiments, The rea?ons leading up to the call naturally were sources of much conjecture, as it was at first felt that the possibility of foreign complications was a factor in bringing about this new move. C:ill Is Simply a Part of >.ho Plan. It speedily developed, however, that the call was not due to any latent or serious emergency, but was rather in the iine of getting together a large body of men to be drilled and seasoned, and to constitute a sort of second reserve to bf> drawn upon later when the campaigns were fully under way. Secretary A!ger stated that the determination to issue th^ call had not been reached un- ti! late Tuesday. The merits of it have been canvassed more or less lor some w^eks. but it was not until a. few hours befor? the cail itself appeared that the move was finally decided upon. It will be some days before the details are worked out as to the qutoas from each state, the calls to the respective governors of states, the mustering points and the general points of concentration. KniUtments Will >ot Be Restricted. A!; that is settled thus far is that the enlistments are to be thrown open, much as they were at the outbreak of the civil war. and are not to be restricted to the militia and National Guard organizations of the several states. It will be an encouragement to the organization of independent volunteer .companies and regiments. The goi'ernors will have the appointment of all company and regimental officers, while the brigade, division, corps and staff officers will be appointed by the president- The following gives an approximate estimate ot »»!B« of. tlie-%tate quotas: Illinois. *,S2»; In- di*na..2,5Sl; loTra, 2r2«; Michigan, !,«*»:'• The n«w Invasion and the « Fle«ts. Washington, May 26.— Reports were current here yesterday that armies of Invasion were about to start for Cuba and Porto Rico. It was based on the conjecture which has been current of late, but officials in authority gave it no indorsement, as it waa manifestly contrary to public policy to give any advance information of such a move, if it were contemplated. The report that General Miles and his staff would leave last night was specifically denied, although it Is probable that the commanding general will leave for thesoutb. at an early day. At the close of the day at the navy department the situation as to the fleets, both American and Spanish, was precisely as it was in the morning, so far as the officials knew, the only noticeable difference being- an apparent strengthing of the confidence of the officials in their belief that Cervera's squadron is lying in the Santiago ha rbor. Ever since thedeterminatlon was positively reached to invade Cuba before the dry season next fall there have been published intimations that the delay, or what appeared to be the delay, in be- ginn.ig the invasion was attributable to the navy. In other words, that the army has long been prepared to start for Cuba but could not do so for lack of convoys and ships to insure landing. It can be sta.ted on the highest authority that there never has been a moment even when Sampsan's forces were at Porto Rico, when the navy was not prepared on instant notice to aid the arm> in effecting a landing in Cuba. Nor. on the other hand, 'has the a.rmy been at fault in this matter. It was at first proposed to throw a small force ol soldiers, about 10.000. into Cuba immediately and allow the remainder of the army of occupation to wait until next fall before going over. There were various reasons for abandoning this- plan. such as the discovery of the insufficient support that could be rendered the first army by the insurgents; the fact that to delay the campaign meant the absolute extermination of the starving re- concentrados. and there were beside international reasons for making haste. These considerations caused complete change in the army plans and that involved delay. To equip an army of 100,000 men in thirty days and put them in condition to light trained veteran soldiers on their own soil was no small undertaking. INSISTS ON TAKI>*G PICTURES. Philadelphia Publishing House I>eiies tjie TV:ir Department Rules. Washington, ilay 26. — Secretary Alger sent to the house yesterday a communication enclosing a letter from a prominent publishing house in Philadelphia in which it urged a correspondent to a'''i;i! mi'-aiis to s-'t photographs of the defenses despite theprohibitlon. Thecon- ci.rn Th this lr-tti :•, which was turned over to the gov.-i-nment. stated that it had emphaik.-iMy been refused permission to make photographs of the League Jsiand navy yard and Fort Mifflin, but the next day It hired a tugboat, and its photographer, stopping in front of the yard, took several views and urged its agents to secure photographs of all fortifications by those or similar means. Rear Admiral Sicard. president of the war board, to whom the letter was referred. recommends that the publication and exposing for sale of views of the navy yards, fortifications, new sliips and other government structures for military or naval service should be forbidden by la.w during the war. Chief of Engiseers Wilson, U. S. A., adds a recommendation for an act making photographs of fortifications or publication* of descriptions of works of defense a penal offense. - JTGIPFEST CASE COKES Wf.

May 26. — The Mc- iffert case came before the Presbyterian general assembly late yesterday afternoon on reports from the committee on biils and overtures.
