Spain Fortifying and Manning Her Med
iterranean Islands.
Madeid, April 13. As the result of
long, important cabinet council last
night, the Spanish war office is actively
engaged in fortifying and manning the
Mediterranean islands of Spain and
placing other portions of the kingdom in
a state of defense. It is understood in
struction9 have been . cabled Captain
General Blanco to- carry suspension of
hostilities into practical effect "accord
ing to circumstances in each district.'
The cabinet refused to recognize the
right of the United States to intervene
in Cuba. ;
Government Bays the Warship, Subject
to Inspection by Committee.
' New York, April 13. A Herald dis
patch from Washington says-:
Admission is made at the navy de
partment that the Brazilian cruiser
Nictheroy has been purchased subject to
an inspection by a naval committee to
be appointed by Minister Bryan.
The Nictheroy, which is equipped with
a dynamite gun, will, naval authorities
say, be available for Biege doty, provided
she is still in good condition. She was
built at Newport News five years ago
and sold to Brazil six months after her
completion, being converted for that
government into a man-of-war. She is
a steel vessel of 7080 tons displacement,
and her one screw prepels her at the
rate ot 19 knots an hour. Her engines
and boilers are protected by coal bunk
ers, and her armament consists of one
15 inch pneumatic dynamite gun, one 4
inch quick-fire gun two 3.9-inch quick'
fire guns, eight 6-pounders, ten 1-pound'
ers and four Howell torpedo tubes.
By the terms of the contract under
which she will be sold to the government
she will be delivered at any point 'on the
coast of the United States that the de
partment may designate. " 1 .
. There has been some talk in naval cir
cles of holding the Nictheroy at Rio Ja
neiro until the arrival of the Oregon and
the gunboat Marietta at that point so
that tbey may shift a crew to her and
convey her to Key West. These vessels,
however, will not reach Rio in less than
24 days, and if war were declared in the
meantime and the Nictheroy had become
the property of this government, Brazil
would be compelled to refuse to deliver
her. If the Nictheroy should leave Rio
and war be declared a few days after her
departure, the officials say the Spanish
government might eend the torpedo-boat
Temeriario, which is still In Montevideo,
after the American ship in order to seize
her as contraband of war, and should
She risist, the Spanish wocld make an
effort to sink her.
The department has determined, how
ever, that it is to the interest of the gov
ernment to have the vessel in American
waters before the sale is confirmed, and
by this means it is believed we cannot
possibly enffer toss. ,
The President Determined to Veto Res
olntlon for Recognition.
. Washington, April 14. The presideut
is determined to veto the1 Cuban resolu
tions if they carry a provision for recog
nition of Cuban independence. He
stated this today to a senator who called
on him.
.Washington, April 14. The action of yesterday in adopting the Cu
ban! resolution made the eenate today
the storm center of the war elemente.
The. galleries were packed andthoueands
were turned away..
Hale presented a memorial, calling at
tention to the necessity of repealing
some of the present navigation laws in
the event of war. The laws, he said,
prevent our merchant vessels from sail
ing under, a foreign flig, while every
Spanish merchantman would be under
the French flag. : Our ships would there
fore be preyed upon by Spanish priva'
teera. '"
Penroee presented the following tele
gram from Philadelphia:
"The house resolution is dishwater;
the Davis resolution is satisfactory; re'
member the Maine." -.-
A message was received from the
house transmitting to the senate the
Cuban resolution passed bv the house
by unanimous consent.
The resolution yesterday reported by
the eenate foreign relations committee
was laid before the eenate. and Turner
(Wash.) beean a speech, in which he
sharply criticised the administration for
its vacillating, irresolute, cowardly and
pusillanimous policy in the Cuban ques
tion." He said tbe developments of. the
past two weeks had shaken his faith in
those who held the president's ear and
confidence. -
Turner declared bimBelf strongly in
favor of the minority resolution, main
taming congress could not delegate to
the president power to make war, and
vehemently attacked the president for
delays in serding his message to con
gress, charging that the delay was not
due tfc-treneral Lee's request, bnt to tbe
fact that ArchbiBhop Ireland cabled the
Vatican in the hope that tbe pope might
bring about a peaceful solution of the
Turner ridiculed the diplomatic nego
tiations of the administration, and de
clared with bitter sarcasm that with
Euch diplomatic agents as we have rep
resenting the United States, the Madrid
government might eventually, for a suit
able indemnity, absolve this country for
blocking the harbor of Havana with the
shattered bulk of the Maine.
Hoar followed Turner. . He said this
was no time lor impassioned rneiorir,
and manifestations of approval greeted
the sentiment. He said that Turner,
who represented only half a state, wae
making MnKinley, who represented 45
states, the subject of the same kind of
objurgations that were , inflicted upon
Washington. Hoar thought the Maine
affair was enough to justify war. . Still
he thought honorable reparation might
possibly be secured without war.
Turpie followed Hoar with a speech
for the recognition of the Cuban repub

New York, April 13. A dispatch to
the Herald from St. Vincent, Cape Verde
islands, says :
The secend Spanish torpedo flotilla is
expected daily by the officers of the tor
pedo-boats now in port. Portuguese
war vessels are expected to arrive here
within a very short time.- The governor
of the Cape Verde islands, it is'said, will

Opposition Press Brings Weyler
- ' Out as the Prospective Savior cf
Madrid, April 14.-The newspapers
here regard war as inevitable. Tbe lat
est dispatches lrom Washington have
created profound excitement throughout
Spain. The Spaniards protest against
the "odious imputation" that Spanish
officers are responsible for the loss of the
Maine. It is asserted that proof can be
furnished to show that no torpedoes
have ever been laid in Havana harbor.
Tbe official Gazette tomorrow will pub
lish a decree organizing a national sub
scription to increase tbe strength of the
Spanish fleet. ' :
The featnre of the opposition press is
an endeavor to bring Weyler to the front
and make him champion of the canse of
revolution, under the guise of the savior
of national honor. Weyler today un
doubtedly has numerous followers, and
even the newspapers which, ever since
his return from Cuba, have violently de
nounced him, are now lauding the for
mer captain-general of Cuba as tbe man
who can save the nation.

London, April 14. According to
special from Madrid today, a Spanish

that should President McKinley notify
Spain to evacuate Cuba this government

fuse, arid is folly prepared to take the
consequence?, lhe government does not

Absolutely Pure
Sir Edwin Arnold's Life In the Flow
ery Kingdom.
Sir Edwin Arnold, who legalized liis
union with a fascinating Japanese
widow by an English marriage service
in London recently, wa always cosmo
politan in his ideas. Surely no English
man born and bred has ever succeeded
in merging his own individuality into
that of other people's as the anthor ot
"The Light of Asia" "and "The Ligfit
cf the World" has done. When Hexras
in India in his young days his work
showed his intense sympathy wit&tlia
Buddhists', and in the preface ta "The?
Light of Asia" he wrote: ''TB is book
was written by one who loved India,anct
the Indian people." ,
For two score of years he was Eng
lish to the core of his heart in the edi
torials he wrote-for the London Tele
graph, and in lfeOOhe came to America,
seemed quite able to understand ns (aa
few of his countrymen could do), and
then he went on to Japan and immedi
ately began to live a la Japanais.
He lived in a native house, left hi
shoes at his door, slept on a thick quilt
and, they say, ate in trne Japanese
?tyle. In his bedroom he had a cheap
European washstand, two Japanese
chests of drawers of white wood and
black iron work, end the usual sliding
cupboard, into which his bed was pus
when it was rolle'd up in the daytime--.
' The walls of the room were of tissue
paper panels powdered with silver"'
maple leaves, and a clear glass belt ran
around the room "at a height incondtr-'
cive to propriety," as one correspondent
of the day remarked.
The drawing-room was glass paneled
from door to ceiling, and the only thing'
in the whole house that hinted at other .
civilizations was an American stove,
which stood in' one of the corners.
With such surroundings it is .not
much wonder that the impressionable
poet found himself going through the
ceremony of tea drinking with lis .
charming companion of the hour, and
that he was content to accept the cere
mony as a bona fide marriage is f ribnte
to his kinship with genius that since
the world began has ever flaunted a
little the staid laws and regulations that
ordinary folks .find necessary to com
fortable existence.
It was in Japan, by the way,:that
Sir Edwin' began "The Light of the
World," and, indeed, completed it, too,
during his stay of several years. Phil- .

The Proportion "Largest In the United
States and Smallest In Germany.
There are in the United States, roagb-
ly speaking, 350,000 school teachers,
and of this number 120,000 are men -and
230,000 are women. In other wtirds.
there are nearly twice as many female
as male teachers, and the disparity is
increasing year by year. According
to tbe last official census of Prussia
there were 68,000 school teachers in the
kingdom, of whom 9,000 were women
and 59.0CO men. It is evident, therefore,
that the Prussian preference is for male
teachers. In all Germany there are,
including the government, church and
private schools, 135,000 teachers, and
the number of pupils is nearly 10,000,-"
000. There are 140,000 , teachers im
France, of whom 65,000 are men and
75,000 are women, the number of eacbr ....
being subject to about the same ratio
of increase. There are,' it is supposed,,
about 100,000 teachers in Great Britain
but authentic figures are lacking.
