The Government Apparently la About

Madrid, July 18. A decree has been

Madrid says decrees suspending the
constitutional guarantee throughout the

without previous authorization, any
writings, engravings or designs what
ever. The decree concludes by specify

The publication of the decree is ac

Sagasta is quoted as saying:
"Spain wants peaoe, but it must be
an honorable peace, as Spain deserves.
The army is anxious to resist to the
last, but the government cannot con

we our fleet, the situation would have
been very diflerent."
The pacific tendency is increasing,

should attempt the re-CBtablishment of
peace, but it is said, contrary to reports

French Gnnboat Held Up in Guanta-

gunboat came into the entrance to the

under full steam.
For a few minutes it looked as if a

across the Frenchman's bow, this

It is against naval custom for a war
vessel of one nation to enter a port
which the vessels of another nation
are blockading, unless permission is
granted. The captain of the French
gunboat was either in ignorance of the
American occupation, or chose to dis
regard it until forcibly reminded of the
fact by Commodore McCalla.
The gunboat was allowed to anchor
in the lower harbor for the night.
Treating the Wounded.
Washington, July 14. Surgeon-General
Van Kevpen, of the navy, received
a report from the surgeons with the
fleet showing that in many cases of
wounded, some of them eerious, no rise
of temperature or an accumulation of
pus has appeared. From a medical
standpoint this is said to be a great ad
vance from the conditions during the
civil war, and is attributed to the intro
duction of antiseptio treatment of
wounds. It shows that no fever fol
lows the wound.
MILLIONS IN DUST.
Gold-Laden Steamer St. Paul Arrive at
San Francisco, July 19. After be-
ng eagerly watched for during the last
10 days, the steamer St. " Paul arrived
tonight from St. Michaels, bringing
men and treasure from the Klondike.
There were 176 passengers on the list,
and the amount of their earnings in
jolddust, nuggets and bank drafts is
nstimated by the ship's officers at 83,-
The largest amount brought out by a
single prospeotor is in the possession
of T. I. Pickett, who has $80,000, prin
cipally in gokldust and nuggets. Pete
Wybird admits to ownership of $50,
000; E. J. Nash has $30,000 and Fred
Berry, of Fresno, Cal., who had previ
ously brought out a fortune, says he
has another with him now, but de
clines to disclose the amount.
J. Dumas, who has been prospecting
on Eldorado creek, has $45,000 to show
for his labors in the frozen north, and
W. E. Burn, who suffered the misfor
tune of having bis feet frozen and los
ing both by amputation, feels compen
sated by the possession ot $100,000 in
oash the proceeds of the sale of his five
mining claims. J. Dumas spent only
one month in the Klondike, but during
that period realized $20,000 from his
olaim, and juBt before his departuie
sold the claim for $25,000 more so.that

The returning miners say that it is
idle for prospeotors to go to the Klon
dike now expecting to locate claims as
all the mining land of any value has
already been staked out. The only
manner in which claims can be now
acquired in said to be by purchase.
The general concensus of opinion is
that the value of Minook creek as 9
center has been overestimated. Claims
there are pronounced to be of little
value and the intending miner if he be
guided by the experience of these pio
neers will confine bis operations to the
neighborhood of the original gold dis
coveries near Daweon.

richest of the Klondike streams in the
precious metal. Eldorado and Bonanza

While tli is was regarded with some
apprehension by laymen, the surgeon

Alden, acting surgeon-general during
the absence of General Sternberg, said
a report of only 16 cases was an exoep'

Hecker for the transportation of the
Spanish troops from Santiago back to
Spain. It provides for an aggregate of

cabin accommodations,' and 24,000 sol'
dlers, with third-class steerage passage,

diers will be delivered on board at
Santiago for Cadiz or such other ports
as may be designated. It is provided
that the accommodations are to be kept
up to the standard required by the

officers and men, in regard to the gal
leys, ventilation, etc. Subsistence
furnished is to tie equal to the United

Possession Capitulation Came After
a Brief Conference Between General
Toral and Sh after and Miles.
Washington, July 16. Santiago for
mally surrendered at 8 o'clock P. M.
The adjutant-general today received
the following from Playa del Este:
"I have just returned from an inter
view with General Toral. He agrees
to surrender on the basis of his army
being returned to Spain. This proposi
tion embodies the surrender of all of

proved so far as , they are known, in
eluding the agreement for . shipment of

ment that the Spanish proposition em
braces all Eastern Cuba from Acerrad'
eros to Sasua is important, in that it
shows the surrender to embrace all the

tiago. It does not include Holguin and

patch from Admiral Sampson.

his army at Santiago on the terms and

Bills Passed by Congress Providing for

providing for the transfer from the
cirouit court ot appeals for the ninth
circuit to the supreme oourt of certain
appeals from the distriot court of
Alaska, the passage of which by the
house was in a great measure due to
the efforts of Representative Tongue,
was steered through the senate the day
before adjournment, alter being re
ported on the same day from the judi
oiary committee. Action on the meaS'
ure was exceedingly rapid, for when
the bill had passed the house, June 21,
it was immediately sent to the senate
and there referred to a committee,
from which it was favorably reported
within two weeks. That is a short

Blanco Was Frenzied When He Heard
of Cervera's Defeat.
Key West, July 15. Acoordlng toad-
vices from Havana reooived here today,
Governor-General Blanco attempted to
aornmit suicide when he learned be
yond doubt that Admiral Ceiveia's
quadron had been annihilated. The
sarlier misleading dispatches, which
gave the impression here that CerVera
had eluded the American fleet, caused
the greatest joy in Havana, but when
the truth became known, with meager
etails, showing the' utter destruction
of Cervera's squadron, all gaietieb were
topped and every publio and many pri
vate buildings were hung with crepe
and other black draperies.
Blanco was in the palace when the
intelligence readied him, and he be-
oame almost frenzied. He was oloseted
with his staff and General Arolas, of
the Spanish forces, disucssing the news,
when be made the attempt on his life.
After a struggle he was subdued and
disarmed, but the sbock was so severe
that he was prostrated and compelled
to keep to his bed for several days.
When he arose his first order was to
prohibit any food supplies leaving
Havana for interior towns, where the
distress is most severe and where many
are starving daily.
This and other information was
brought by Jose Pauline Blanco, who
indignantly repudiated a suggestion o
kinship with the governor-general. He
says he is a loyal Cuban, and escaped
to avoid the necessity of fighting
against his cause, as every male in the
island who is able to bear arms is being
pressed into service. Blanco says the
living conditions in Havana are con
stantly growing worse, the greatest dis
tress necessarily falling on the Cubans,
as nearly all the food is seized for the

starve, and it is no uncommon thing,

in the streets. Even among the Span
iards starvation is rapidly sapping their
loyalty, and large numbers of men are
banding themselves together, awaiting
the first American attack on Havana as
a signal for revolt. The grocery and
provision stores are empty.
Work on the defenses continue with
ceaseless vigor. Two lines of cable-
bearing torpedoes have been strung

by the republic: of Colombia of the ar
bitration award made by President
Cleveland in favor of Ernesto Oorrutti,

ment bas summarily closed diplomatic
negotiations with the Colombian min
ister at Rome and notified Admiral

Manila, via Hong Kong, July 15.
The insurgents, on Wednesday, July 6,
reported that the German cruiser Irene,
in Subig bay, refused to permit them
to attack the Spaniards on Grande
island. Rear Admral Dewey promptly
dispatched the Raleigh and Concord to
investigate tbe matter. On entering
Subig bay the Raleigh opened fire on
the forts, whereupon the Irene slipped
her cable and steamed out by the other
channel. The result of the fire of

plained that she interfered "in the in

sued a proclamation promising to grant
autonomy to the islands and offering
the irvBnrgents inducements to join the
Spanish forces. . General Aguinaldo,
tbe insurgent leader, in a reply, said
the overtures of the Spanish command

Washington, July 15. The adminis
tration is very much pleased with tbe
readiness shown by the admiral in
meeting the grave issue presented to
him at Subig bay, as he did. Naval
officers, too, were not a little gratified
at the Bpeedy retirement of the German
cruiser Irene, after the appearance of
the Raleigh and Concord.
Tbe navy department has received
this dispatch from Manila: "Aguin
aldo informs me that his troops have
taken all the Subig bay ports except the
Isla Grande, which they were prevent'
ed from taking by the German man-of

and Concord went there; they took the
island and about 800 men, with arms
and ammunition. . There was no re
sistanoe. Tle Irene retired from tbe
bay on their arrival. . I shal' sand tbe

practicable to send to Guam. No troop

A comparison of tbe ships show that
tbe Irene was much superior to either
of these two - American vessels and in
tonnage was almost as large as the
Jialoish and Conoord together. From
this, it is inferred that the retirement
of the Irene was from motives ot gen
eral policy, rather than from any dispo
sition to try conclusions with the two
Amerioan ships. In armor, the Ger
man ship was rnnoh stronger than the
Americans, but in guns tbe Americans
had tbe advantage.
In official quarters here there appears
to be no disposition to look upon the
action of the Irene as a menace which
will require explanation. , it was
thought at first that this outward show
of force on the part of the German
ships might lead to an inquiry by this
government as to the purpose of Ger
many. Thus far, however, there is no
disposition to make such inquiry or to
attach much importance to the incident
Insurgents Captured a Steamer.

and killed the officers. They then
handed the steamer over to the insur
gents, who armed the vessel and dis
patched it to Subig for the purpose of
making an attack on Grande islucd.
Continuing, the letter confirms the
story told by the press correspondent at
Manila in regard to the action of tbe
'Gorman warship Irene, and the steps
taken by Admiral Dewey to prevent in
terference with the insurgents, adding
that the Spanish prisoners, in spite of
'their protests, were handed over to tbe
