(Sickness as well as bullets has to be guarded against, so the president Is trying to assemble from the volunteer and regular army forces 10,000 yellow fever "Immunes," who are accustomed to the southern climate and who are not likely to succumb to the diseases peculiar to tropical and semi-tropical countries.

Six workmen were killed and four other-s were seriously. Injured, some probably fatally. The explosion Is believed to have been the work of Spanish spies, as suspicious characters have been seen around the building for several days. In a flre at Worthing, S. D., the Armory was burned to the ground and the ammunition, uniforms and guns of Company D, National Guard, were totally destroyed.

The torpedo boat Ericsson on Sunday noticed a large number of infantry passing eastward, towards Mntnnzas, on the. beach. The Ericsson followed them for miles, but used no guns. Later they noticed another large number of infantry going eastward and apparently driving prisoners before them. The Ericsson discovered a force of men at work on a new fort four miles east of Cojlma. It was being built or. the second of four or five small hills at some distance from shore. All aftrrnoon and night the Ericsson's men watched the men at work. They made out sixteen cavalrymen quartered in the plantation house near the fort. Finally the Ericsson ran across the Wilmington, and Captain Todd was informed. "They'll never finish it," he said. "Just watch." The Ericsson drew away and tho Wilmington leisurely proceeded toward the coast. In less than two minutes the fort was a, shapeless wreck. The Ericsson has had rough weather. On Saturday it anchored within 250 yards of the Cuban coast. WodncRdayi May 4. Failure to receive word from Admiral Dewey causing extreme anxiety.

Belief prevailed that this announcement masked the real intentions of tho department with a view of deceiving Spain and that troops wouiu be sent to Cuba at once.—A London cablegram announces that a portion at least of the Cape Verde fleet Is at Cadiz. IIow Spain Gets tho Nowg. The following Is the substances of tho official report made by Captain General Blanco on the subject of the bombardment of the forts of Matanzas by ships belonging to Rear Admiral Sampson's squadron: "Three American cruisers fired on the batteries of Fort Morillo at Matanzas without doing any damage. Wo fired fourteen shots, to which the Americans replied with a multitude o£ mitrail- leuse (quick-firing guns) shots, which did not do any Injury. The American squadron also fired fourteen cannon shots at THE OLYMPIA. the Abanllla battery, only one mule being, killed, to which the Spanish battery only replied with four shots, as the squadron was beyond range. The whole squadron of five ships then threw several shells' into the town without doing any damage.. The French and Austrian consuls have! protested against thp bombardment, asi It was commenced without any previous' warning to foreign subjects. The troops manning the stations are full of fight. It appears that our shots did some damage to the American ships. One funnel was certainly hit. During the bombardment Colonel Alfabs with a column of troops attacked a rebel band under Betancourt at Migote, south of Matanzas, capturing their positions and killing twenty men, Including two chiefs. A quantity of arms, horses, stores, and tho' insurgent camps were captured. Five mounted rebels and a chief,, surrendered." Contraband of War, Authorities on international law agreei that no absolute definition of contraband of war can be made. Certain principles, however, have been laid down which serve as a reliable guide aa to the character of a cargo of a neutral vessel subject to seizure by a belligerent. In order to con- stltutu goods contraband of war It is decided that they must not only have a hostile quality but also a hostile destination. On the other hand, goods of an. Innocent quality are not contraband oven if their destination is a hostile port. With respect to its hostile or innocent quality merchandise is divided into three classes —first, that which is useful only for war, .such as arms and ammunition; second, that useful alike in peace and war, such aa provisions, naval stores anil coal; and third, that useful only in peace, such as household goods, books and fine cloths. Concerning the. first and third classes no controversy is likely to occur; but In; determining the quality of goods useful alike in peace and war there is always! the chance of unpleasant complications with neutrals. The question must be de-l elded by circumstances and in accordance! with the terms of treaties existing bo-i tween the belligerent and the neutral ntv-' Uon, The treaties between the United States and various nations bearing upon this question vary greatly, and what in one case may be specifically defined as (contraband of war in another may be as. Innong&t jnejrc.harid.lse.,.. TUe proclamation of Spam OB to what It shall consider contraband of war is extremely liberal, but liberty of action 1? reserved as to whether or not coal shall be 96 considered. The United Statea also follows a liberal Course in accordance with historical precedent. Neutral nations permit their merchants the freest Intercourse with belligerents, not attempting super- Vision over such trade. The protection of neutrality ceases, however, with violation of Its laws. All merchant vessels flying a neutral flag are subject to search by belligerents. If they are found to carry contraband goods they may be seized i' G. M. STERNBERG. (Surgeon General of the United States Army.) and. confiscated and their owners will have no claim for redress. Famine In Puerto Itloo. Famine and smallpox are killing men, women and children in Puerto Rlc n . The conditions In (he Interior are horrible. Children aro perishing of starvation and tho villages are petitioning the government for succor. Smallpox is 'epidemic. Draft animals aro dying and tho desperate, starving peasants are killing beeves In the highways, cutting them up and distributing the portions among the hungering. Tho mayors of municipalities Insist upon an extensive cultivation In anticipation of a siege. The prohibition of tho exportation of cattlo is agitating the people. Their indignation has been excited by tho rapacity ot tho merchants, who have decreased the pound weight by ono- third and Increased prices 50 per cent. Railroad rates upon provisional freight Into the Interior have aggravated the situation. The financial situation is critical. Hanks are susnendinjr. Bankers refuse to Bdl drafts. Paper Is discounted 00 per cent. The colonial bank refuses Spanish paper. The opening of the insular parliament has boon postponed indefinitely by order of Captain General Maclas. Tho old ministry has been overthrown and a new ministry sworn. New tariff studies have been initialed. Twenty-five thousand troops are expected from Spain.. Bakers aro hurrying orders for 150,000 pounds of biscuits for them. The militia is organizing in all the towns. Fight Toasted Four Hours. 1 Before the battle of Cavlte the Olympia, the Boston, the Raleigh, tho Concord, the Petrel and the Monocacy entered the bay under cover of darkness by the smaller and safer Bocachlca channel. The forts of Corregidor island gavo tho alarm by firing on the Intruders, but they Deem to have Inflicted no serious damage. The American squadron moved up the bay and at 3 o'clock in tho morning appeared before Cavite. Here, lying under the shelter of the forts, waa tho Spanish squadron. Admiral Montejo, a few days before, went to 'Sublc bay to look for the enemy, but learning that they were vastly superior in force had prudently returned and placed his ships under tho protection of the forts. This waa his only chance of meeting the enemy on something like equal terms, and It did not sufllce. Soon tho Americans opened lire. The Spaniards replied vigorously and the combat continued without interruption for four hours, during which tho Don Antonio de Ulloa was sunk, tho Castilla and Mindanao were set on fire and the Relna Maria Christina and the Don Juan de Austria were seriously damaged. One or two of the smaller craft wero scuttled by their crews to escape capture. Others took refuge In a small neighboring creek emptying into Baker bay, where, presumably, tho American ships were unable to follow tl'^m. But no one surrendered. Portugal Friendly to Spain. While it is true that the Portuguese prime minister has publicly and private ly declared that Portugal will be abso lutely neutral in the present* war, if f equally true that the king and sovo;/n- ment of Portugal are doing theli afmost to favor Spain. The proclamation of neutrality has been deliberately withheld, while Portuguese officials have been assisting the Spanish fleet at Cape Verde to prepare for war against the United States. Investigations by telegraph Indicate clearly that Portugal has been, up to present iimmtnt, an aSuve, uggruodlvu ally of Spain. The government will not allow correspondents to telegraph to America the movements of Spanish warships in Portuguese waters. The official organ of tho government announces that this applies to tho correspondents of all na;ions, but the fact is that telegrams ad- diessed to Spain are allowed to go practically without censorship. It is obvious ithat Portugal Intends to connive at tho secret coaling of Spanish warships in her waters, especially at points where there is no American consul to protest. Awiikonlng of tho Uiuut. Tho sudden growth of the tremendous war spirit in America has been a marvel. A few weeks ago we were the most obdurately peaceful ,of nations, boasting with Andrew Carneglo that wo alone of all countries spend more on our educational system than on our army, applauding Frederick R. Coudc-rt when, lie spoke .'to us of the glories oi' arbitration, and tooling a glow of pride when he reminded ua that Uncle Sam had always been foremost in this crowning enterprise of civilization. We pooh-boohed the expensive armaments of Europe and taunted her citizens with the blood and money tax, which they have to stand. AVe •sneered at the "gospel according to William," which the forward young emperor of Germany -commissioned his brother •to preach by the cannon's mouth in China and in the uttermost parts of the earth. When we would hear of tha enormous battle fleet of England or of the myriad soldiers of the czar, we would wag our heads in a knowing way, assuring ourselves that we had chosen the bettor part in allowing these bellicose nations to spend their substance in preparing for mutual destruction, while we, safe in pur cis-Atlantlc isolation, busied ourselves in raising the corn and 'cotton to feed and clothe tho mad world. Army men were in despair, and sub-lieutenants looked sadly at hale old generals who would -not die, and who, by a milk-and- water governmental poMcy, were given no opportunity to get Jellied. These were piping, peace times. But 'alas, it was only tho rich rabble that were talking them—the plutocrats, as pur Populist friends would call them. This class of people know nothing of the spirit" of their country.' They could not see a giant nation being awaked from its repose. First came ft little peal of thunder, as It were, to-day Us roar is beard around, the \vorlct. The giant is awake. The peace at any price has taken to tho . The woujg-be. .djgfftaso 1 - PjL eiir national honor are either siieiT or are making for distant lands. Frederick R. Coudcrt and his Ilk have gone to roost till the war is over. The masses of the American people are looking after our national honor.—fix. ( Spanish Strengthen tint-fthn. Charles Thrall, a government agent, was picked up off Havana Wednesday by the gunboat Wilmington and transferred to the flagship New York. Thrall has spent some time in Havana in the service of th« United States. He went there on the bark Matanzas shortly after General Lee left tho city. He gave Admiral Sampsbn some important Information about the beleaguered city and the changes that had been made in the batteries at Relna and Cojimar. He says they have been re- enforced and that their fighting radius has been Increased. A large force of troops, he says, is necessary to prevent an outbreak by the people, who are. in thousands of cases, suffering from the want of food. Thrall says the Spaniards havt about 45,000 available troops, although Blanco claims to have 100.000, counting the men who man the batteries, volunteers and others. Ho says many of tho people there believe the Americans are afraid to engage the shore batteries. The newspapers, Thrall says, have not been allowed to print the true story of the assault on Matanzas by tho Americans. The only stories they have printed represent that the ships wero driven away by tho forts. Last Monday an American newspaper man was captured and will be shot as a spy. Thrall succeeded In getting away from Havana attired as a cattle driver. He speaks Spanish fluently ajid has dark eyes and complexion, What Soldier* Need In Cuba. Captain John A. Floyd, whom Secretary Alger has just directed to report to General Shatter nt Tampa for service on tha hitter's staff in tho Invasion of Cuba, is a resident of Columbus, Ga. For twelve months Captain Floyd was chief of General Mnceo's staff, and as such had an unexcelled opportunity to study tho climatic conditions. Speaking of tho equipment necessary, Captain Floyd says that he would not recommend tho use of tents in Cuba, as this would necessitate long wagon trains, which the roadless condition of tho Island would render Impracticable. Ho says each man should be provided with a cloak or cape of rubber, as the rainy season will be In full blast when the Invading army moves on Cuba. This Will also serve aa a covering at night. Tho men should also be supplied with hammocks, says Captain Floyd, as otherwise Insects will make tho nights a veritable hell. Ho snys the clothing should be as light as Is consistent with cleanliness, as the days are scorching, and It will be absolutely Impossible to wear woolerts of any kind. Fruit can be obtained in endr less variety the year around, and he recommends its liberal use, precautions being taken to prevent tho uso of green- fruit. He Hays that during the entire term of hla service he saw riot a slngla case ol! yellow fever, and that ordinary sanitary regulations will prevent its spread. Russia IB Aggrieved. The Moscow correspondent of tho London Standard says: "Public opinion In tho matter, so far as it Is expressed, uympathlzes with Spain. Apart from admiration of tho courage of a country that ventures upon a conflict with an overwhelmingly superior antagonist, Russia •has received a severe blow In the suspected friendly agreement between the United States and England. The Russians do not forget placing their fleet at the disposal of the North In tho war 'Of secession In 1801, and they are bitterjy aggrieved that tho United States is not oauallv mindful of this service now." FOND OP STREET CAR HIDES. Aged Annlo Maliou Makes Trouble for Maxwell Street Policeman, Out on the west side la the Maxwell street district an old woman has lived for several years, whose desire to ride on street cars 1ms caused a deal of annoyance. She is Mrs. Annie Mahon, eighty years of age and is a public burden. Mrs. Mahon, as she insists upon being called.has a habit of clanib- oriug on street cars and riding until put off. She has no money and is, besides, crippled so that any movement is a matter of difficulty to her. Her plan is to board a car, if the conductor does not know her and then if he a»ir* for her fare say she has no money and make an appeal for a free ride. She has a persuasive tongue, a pitiful appearance and seldom fails to work on the sympathies of some passenger. If the conductor is obdurate, and attempts to put her off, the emotional passenger pays and "roasts" the conductor, sometimes even going to the extent of reporting him. The old woman has caused so much annoyance that officers have found it necessary to arrest her frequently. She has been In the house of correction many times 4 In the past two years, but always resumes her travels on being released. She was recently sent back 1 by Justice Eberhardt, because the workhouse or Dunning is the only place where she coul'd be sent to protect her from the streets and possible starvation. PLEA FOR SILK PETTICOATS. Modesty and Not Vanity Prompts Their Wear. " 'Men,' says the young woman, with a toss of her head, 'think to settle every matter by their dictum, They think they are so much,' Yesterday I saw where one of those animals had been stuffing some gullible reporter about the silk petticoats ladies wear," says the Memphis Scimitar. "He said that these silk skirts were never raised because women wished to show them, and he said the custom of wearing silk underskirts was started by some foolish woman who had money and could not wear all of this good clothing on the outside. This is not so at all. The use of silk underskirts was started by a modest woman who did not wish to show her ankles every time she crosses! the street. When white underskirt* were worn duet and dirt showed ot them so readily that as a matter of deft erence the ladies had to raise them. The dust then settled on the hose pi the fair one. Dust and dirt do not show on the bright silk skirts, and these are not raised. It just goeg to show that some men always put the worst construction possible on a thing." Grown »t Great Heights.
