He said that during his service in Cuba, up to the surrender of Santiago, his command had rations of bacon and canned roast beef, in the proportion of abont'10 days of the former to 15 day«t «f the latter.

Lockroy, minister of marine, in the course of an interview had with him by a represenfafi-ve of The Gaulbis. said that none of the theories advanced was admissable. ' "Imprudence on the part of the per- *oanel," he added, "was impossible, as the explosion occurred several hours after the gates had been closed. The heating theory, too. is unsound, as the temperature of the b ~ " low and the air dry.' teere, was taken in ambush.

REQUISITION DOUBLED. WILL KEEP_HANDS OFF. foiled State* to Take No Part la tho Bald on China. WASHINGTON-, March 8.--The United States government has remained absolutely passive throughout the execution of the Italian project to secure an "open door" on th« Chinese coast through the acquisition of San Mun bay and out lying islands. Some days ago Minister Conger at Pekin acquainted the state department with the fact that Italy had referred a request upon Chroa for the use of the spot selected bnt he made no report since and it is not known officially whether the Italian forces have been landed at San Mun. A high official says our government, resisting from j motives of broad policy alluding mti-1 mabons from other powers that thei fame is rip* for a raid by the United! States on some part of the Chinese coast i line, ha* determined definitely to keep bands off. for Cuban* Want Two Million Katt the Xonth of March. HAVANA, March 8.--For the month of March the various provinces; excepting the province of Santiago, have made requisition for 2,000.000 rations. Thus, instead of diminishing, the requisition has doubled since that of Jan. I. This is due partly to the fact that Cnbans nse every possible opportunity of getting rations under false pretences and partly to the fact that American dis-' tribntors are unable to d.scnminate properly between impositors and the really necessitous. The supply ship Cotnal with 1,000,600 rations will proceed to Matan7«« and Nenvitas and on- load them. MONEY FOR THE CUBANS. MAXJLA, March 8.--The troops which arrived on the transport Senator and those that arrived on the transport Ohio are disembarking and all the preparations are being made to proceed with an aggressive campaign before the wet season sets in.' The rebels, anticipating the American advance, are busy throwing np defenses in every direction and it is reported that they are levying men and supplies in every province.

It has developed that General Otis has practically completed his plans fora grand onslaught on the insurgents which is expected'to deprive them of offensive power at least. It is probable that he wfll form a large part of his force into columns, as soon as reinforcements are all at hand, and will push these in parallel lines straight through the jungles, ant the insurgents in every Librarian of Contra*.

An agent of the United States will go to Cuba next wedt and pay the Cuban army the $8,000,000 appropriated.
