WAiiuaiiTua, April 25. Tb President to
day Mnt to Congreaa the following bill
recommending the paasae of a declaration
of war against Hpaln:
To the rWnaieand Houae of Representative
ot the United Htate of America:
1 tranimlt to Coiigroai for It conaiilera
lion and appropriate action copiei of corre
spondence recently had with the repreaeiit-
atlve of Hpaln In the UnlUd Btates, with the
United Statea Mlnlater at Madrid, and
through the latter wltb ths government of
Hpaln, allowing the action taken under Joint
reaolulion, approved April 20, 1809, for !
cognition of the independence of the people
of Cuba, demanding that the government
of Spain relinijuieh it authority and gov
rnnientin the inland of Cuba and withdraw
It land and naval forcea from Cuba and
Cuban water, and directing the 1'realdent
of the United Htatea to uae the land and
naval force of the United State to carry
these resolution into effect.
Upon communicating to the tipanlsh mln
later in Washington the demand which it
became the duty of the executive to address
to the government ol Hpaln In obedience lo
aid resolution, said Minister asked for his
passport and withdrew. Ths United Stales
Minister t Madrid was in turn notified by
the Bpanish representative that the United
State had terminated diplomatic relation
between the two countries, and all official
communication between their respective
representatives ceased therewith.
I recommend to your special attention
the note directed to the United Stale ruin
Isterat Madrid by the Spanish Minister of
Foreign A Hairs on the 21st Inst, whereby
the foregoing notification was communi
cated. It will be pvrwived that the Spanish
government, having coguixance of the reso
lution, and in view of the things which the
President i hereby required and authoriied
to do, responds by treating the representa
tive demands of tbi government as meas
ures of hostility, following with that in
stant and complete severance of relations
by It action.
The position of Spain being thus made
known and the demand of the United
Btatet being denied wltb a complete rupture
in the intercourse with Spain, I have been
constrained in ibe exercise of the power
and authority conferred upon me by the
joint resolution aforesaid to proclaim under
date of April 22, lc$8, a blockade of certain
port on the north coast of Cuba, lying be
tween Cardenas and Babai Honda and the
port of Clenfuegoi on tbe south coast of
Cuba, and further, in the exercise of my
constitutional lowers and using the power
confened on me by act of Congress, ap
proved April 22, 1808, to issue my proclama
tion dated April 23, 1S93, calling for volun
teers In order to carry Into ellect said reso
lution of April 20, 1SD8. Copies or this
proclamation are hereunto appended.
In view of the measure so taken and with
the view to the adoption of such war meas
ure a may be necessary to enable me to
carry out tbe expressed will of the Congress
of the United States in the premises, I now
recommend to your honorable body the
adoption ol a joint resolution declaring that
a state of war exists between the United
State of America and the kingdom ol
Spain, and I urge speedy action thereon, to
tbe end that a definition of the International
statu of the United States as a belligerent
power may be made known aud the asser
tion ot all it duties in the conduct of the
publlo war may be assured.
Executive Mansion, Washington, Apiil 23.
Not a Dlaaentlug Vote.
Wasiiinuton, April 25. The House today
passed the bill declaring the existence of a
tale of war between the United States and
the kingdom of Spain in a manner which
cannot fail to impress the world. The repre
sentatives of 70,000,000 people voted for it
without a word of debate, without a dis
senting vote and without a roll-call, but
with a solemn appreciation of tbe gravity
of their momentous action.
The joint resolution or bill was as follows:
"Be it enacted by the Senate and the
House of Representatives of the United
States, in Congress assembled.
"First, That war he and the same Is
hereby declered to exist, and that war has
existed since the 21st of April, 1893. includ
ing Sunday, between the United States of
America and the Kingdom of Spain.
"Second, That tbe president of the
United States Is hereby directed and em
powered to use the entire land and naval
forces of tbe United States, and to call into
actual service the United States militia of
the several State to such extent as may be
necessary to carry this act into ellect."
Following is the text of President' ulti
matum to Spain, as given out this morning:
"April 20, 1808.-Woodford, Minister of
the United States, Madrid: You have been
furnished with the text of the Joint resolu
tion voted by the Congress of the United
States on the 19tb Inst., and approved today,
in relation to the pacification of the island of
Cuba. In obedience to that act, the Presi
dent directs you to immediately communi
cate to the government of Spain said resolu
tion, with a formal demand upon the gov
ernment of Spain to at onoe relinquish its
authority and government in the island of
Cuba and withdraw It land and naval
force from Cuba and Cuban water. In
taking this tep, the United blate hereby
disclaim any disposition or Intention to ex
ercise sovereignty, jurisdiction or control
over tlx Island, except for the pacification
thereof, and assert It determination when
that I accomplished to leave the govern
ment aud control of tbe island to It people
under sucb free and independent govern
ment a tbey may establish.
"If by the hour of noon on Saturday
next, ths 23d day of April, instant, there be
not communicated to this government by
the government of Spain full nd satisfac
tory response to this demand and resolution,
whereby tbe ends of peace in Cuba shall be
assured, the President will proceed without
further notice to use the power and author
ity enjoyed and conferred upon him by said
Joint resolution lo sucb extent as may be
necessary to carry tbe tame into effect.
Tbe following is the Proclamation Isaued
April 21, announcing tbe blockade of Cuban
"Whera. In carrying into ellect the
Resolution, the President of the United
States deem it necessary to set on foot and
maintain a blockade of tbe nortb coast of
Cuba, including all port of said coast be
tween Cardenas and Babia Honda, and tbe
port of Cieiifuegus, on the south coast of
Cuba; now, therefore, I, William McKinley
President of the United State, in order to
enforce said Resolution, do hereby declare
and proclaim that the United 8tates of
America ba instituted and will maintain a
blockade of the north coast of Cuba, includ
ing port on aid coast between Cardenas
and Bahia Honda, and tbe port of Cien
fuegos, on tbe south coast of Cuba, afore
said, in pursuance of the law of the United
Slates and tbe laws of nations applicable to
such canes. An efficient force will be posted
so as lo prevent the entrance to and exit
from said ports aforesaid. Any neutral
vessel approaching said iiorts and attempt
Inn to leave tbe same without notice or
knowledge of the establishing of sucb block
ade will be duly warned by tbe commander
ot tbe blockading forces, wbo will Indorse
on ber register the fact and tbe date of such
warning, and where such indorsment was
made, and it the same vessel shall again at
tempt to enter any blockaded post, she will
be captured and tent to the nearest con
venient port for tucb proceedings against
her and ber cargo a prize as may be
deemed advisable. Neutral vessel lying in
and of tbe said porta at the time of the
establishment of such blockade will be
allowed 30 days to issue therefrom. .

my hand and caused the seal of tbe United
States to be affixed.

Ex-Praaldent Clereland Speaks.
PaiaceTOH, N. ., April 22. A great
student demonstration in regard to the war
took place on Prinoton campus last nighu
One thousand students paraded through
tbe town and about tbe campus, finally
drawing up in front of ex-President Cleve
land's house, and with ringing cheers in
duced him to come out. The enthusiasm
was unbounded, and Mr. Cleveland made a
speech, every sentence of which was loudly
cheered. He said in part:
"I suppose this demonstration is an evi.
deuce of your patriotism In this critical hour
ot our Nation' history. We must stand by
the Country when she is right, and I am not
so sure that we should not stand by ber
when sbe Is wrong. Let us bope in this
crisis which is upon us our arms may sus
tain their prowess and that it may be
demonstrated in after years that we were
right. Stern duties face the American
people today, and let us bope that these
duties may be performed in tbe same high
way that our duties were performed in the
preliminary stages of the trouble, and in the
days to come let us prepare ourselves for the
proper performance on all occasions of these
duties. But so far as in us tie, let u be
conservative and righteous to the end."
Loud hurrahs were given for the ex-president
before the students took up their
