New Yoiik, April 18. In directing her
coloniuB to regard coal ob contraband of
war in tlio ovunt of hoBtilitien between
tlio United Stales and Spain, Great
Urituin has taken action, American of
(iciulH Buy, in Hue with the wishes of tho
president nn.i naval officinlp, says the
Washington correspondent of the Her
ald. l'ressure will be exerted upon France,
Hayti nnd Sun Domingo to accomplish
the fcanie result, mid some attention is
luting given by the state department to
Smith American countries, with a view
of securing a contraband character of
coal, us well bh an announced determi
nation on their part not to sell either to
Spanish or American men-of-war a sup
ply of fuel greater than necessary to en
able the belligerent vessel to steam to
the next home port.
So far hb the Danish West Indies are
concerned, the authorities have pur
chased in their reports all the coal that
it is possible to secure. With coal a de
clared contraband of war, administra
tion ufllcials and naval experts say it
will be impossible for Spanish vessels to
operate in the West IndieB or tiie Pacific
and a a u result the chances of success
for American arms would be immeasur
Great Brituin's declaration of the con
traband character of coal will effect the
United States enly at one point in the
fur Kiiat. The United States now has
at Hong Kong six vessels, the cruisers
Iliiltimore, Olympia, Kaleigh and Bos
ton, and gunboats Concord aud Petrel
and these ships are awaiting the word
to rush to Manila.
If the lorlifications of the Philippines
should stand off the American fleet for
any time, the operations of the vessels
would be greatly embarrassed, for by
England's declaration, her colonists will
be only allowed to sell to either bellig
erents a supply only sufficient to take
him to his home port.
Appreciating the position assumed by
tlio British government, Commander
Dewey, acting under instructions from
Secretary Long, has purchased a large
quantity of coal and stored it on board
two colliers, which will accompany the
fleet to the Philippines. Extended op
partitions would necessitate a,renewul of
the supply, and the central position of
Hawaii is pointed to by naval experts
who want It for a naval base. Hawaii
Is 4000 miles from the Philippines. Her
position in the family of nations would
conipell her to observe strict neutrality,
nd not to favor one belligerent more
than another, but her annexation, it is
pointed out, would result in placing eup
,plies lor the Asiatic squadron 2000 miles
nearer the vessels than would be the
ease if coal, munitions of war, otc, had
to he shipped trom the United States.
It Is ulso pointed out that Hawaii will
find it necessary to sell coal to a Span
vessel at Honolulu sufficient to take
It a portion of the wav to the next home

Strong representations have been
made to the president by Secretary Long
to get him to instruct the secretary of
the, treasury to decline to grant clear
ances to ships carrying provisions aud
coal to Spanish ports.
The Canary islands will be admittedly
a Spanish base of operations, and it will ,
be the effort of this government to
blockade them and seize vessels which
may try to bring contraband from any
other rountry to them. This will be
especially the case with Cuba and Porto
