Washington, May 18.- Reports re

to 10 o'cock tonight indicate that 80,
000 volunteers have been mobilized in
the service. Unless something unfor-
seen ocours, all of the 125,000 volnn-

" Wants Regular Troops.
, New York, May 18. The Tribune
today says: Major-General Wesley
Merritt may not go to the Philippines
in command,of the troops to be sent to
the assistance of Rear-Admiral Dewey.
In an interview last night General
Merritt said: ' --. ' ; -
"I may not go to the Philippines at
all. It is proposed to give me 15,000
men, only 1,000 of them regulars, and
the rest volunteers, and those from the
Northwest, who have had little oppor
tunity for training and discipline. I
have askod the department for at least
4,000 regular troops, for I believe they
will be required."?. There will be no op
portunity to train the volunteer forces
before they start or after they get to
Manila. I want enough disciplined
troops so that the whole body will be
as effective as possible."
Are you going to Washington to see
about this matter?" . .. ,
"No; I am sending an officer. , I had
conversation with Dr. Bourns, of At
lanta, who is familiar with the Philip
pines, and came on to see me, and he
and Colonel Hughes will go to Washing
ton together. The only way I could get
more regulai troops would be to take
them from the army now in Florida for
Cuban invasion; but I feel that I do
not want to go on this expedition unless
1 have an entirely adequate force, and
at least five regiments of regular
troops." V , . ' f
The department promises to send
men, but history and experience show
that in such expeditions all depends
upon the first force sent. How can the
Charleston start if there are no men
ready? General Otis may be willing to
go on without four'or more regiments
of regular troops and take only 1,000
trained men, with 14,000 undisciplined
ones, but I arn not. I do not propose
to go without a force that is suitable
to my rank. I shall stay right here if
I do not go to the Philippnes. I do not
expect anything will be done in the
matter until it is certain what I am to
have for the purpose of the expedition."

Secretary Lonj Curtail the Supply of
Washington, May 18. An order was
posted this morning, signed by Secre
tary Long, relative to the publication
of news emanating from the navy de
partment, considerably curtailing the
supply of information that has' hereto
fore been rather freely given out. The
secretary's order was directed to Cap
tain Crowninshield, chief of the-navi
gation bureau, and he in turn gave it
out by making an order in his own
name, that no person connected with
bis bureau in any capacity should have
any conversation whatever on subjects
in any way pertaining to the navy with
representatives of the press. As an
offset, it was ordered that bulletins of
such acts as have actually oocurred and
are proper for publication and are not
connected with existing or projected
movements, shall be prepared and post
ed on the bulletin boaid. -.
; The sum total of the information
published by the bulletin board today
under this rule was a notice of the in
tention to start the Philippine expedi
tion, and of the permission given to
some foreign neutral vessels to pass the
blookade at Havana. '
, In explanation of the issuance ot this
order, the naval authorities say that
some leading American newspapers
have been so far lacking in patriotism
as to print plans of campaign and pro
jected movements of naval ships, with
the result that the war board has been
obliged to completely revise its plans.

promptly taken notice of the publioa
tions, and were prepared to profit by
them; . . " , '. '

officers, men and supplies would be
sent out to Manila by the City of
Peking. About 1,200 troops will go.

LATEST FROM FRANCE.
Not Anxious to Incur Our Ill-Will
Charges England With Mischief. ',
Paris, May 18. The Journal des
Debarts, in a long article today, re
flects the anxiety experienced in gov
ernment circles here respecting the
feeling aroused in America on account
of France's open sympathy with Spain;
It says: ' ' '.'
' The whole affair is a misunder
standing. French opinion at the out
set of the war certainly regarded the
United States in the wrong, - and some
of the papers express this opinion in
an aggressive tone. The Americans,
however, should not have taken the
matter tragically, for of all foreigners,
our natural sympathies are for the
United States, and our government
throughout has acted most correctly."
After charging Great ; Britain with
being at the bottom of the mischief,
and declaring that it is America's busi
ness, if she decides to interfere in dis
tant affairs, the article concludes:
What concerns us is that America
should not, in taking up the question
of international domain, , start with
preconceived ideas against us, and de
nounce he good understanding with
France whioh has been so useful in the
past, and which is still more desirable
in the future. The French nation
was never really hostile to the Ameri
cans, who will realize this when the
present friction has had time to disap
pear." :".'. .. '
Tempting Pate. '
London, May 18.- A dispatch to the
Standard from Corunna . says: The
presence of the British ohannel , squad
ron at ViHagarier is likely to lead to
some unpleasantness. The idea of an
Anglo-American alliance . has so in
flamed the Spaniards that the postmen
from the fleet when on shore to collect
letters have been hooted and stoned.
Threats have been made to stop the
supply of provisions to the fleet. The
British consul protested to the alcalde,
who explained that the popular resent
ment was due to a belief in the exist
ence of an alliance, and to the further
impression that the fleet took wheat
that properly belonged to the poor. ...

Under Heavy Fire.
ONE KILLED, SIX WOUNDED
finished the Work In Spite of Terrible
Volleys From Shore Spanish - Loss
Known to Have Been Heavy Forts
at Harbor Sntrance Reduced.
Key West, May 17. Amid a perfect
8torm of shot from Spanish rifles and
batteries, the American forces cut the
cable at : Cienfuegos Wednesday morn
ihg. Four determined boat crews, un
der command of Lieutenant Winslow
and Ensign Margruder from the cruiser
Marblehead, and the gunboat Nash
ville, put out from the ships, the coast
having previously been shelled. 1
: The work of the volunteers was per
ilous. The cruiser Marblehead and the
gunboat Nashville and the auxiliary
oruiser Windom drew up 1,000 yards
from shore with their guns manned
ready for desperate duty. . One cable
had already been out, and the work
Was in progress on the other when the
Spaniards in rifle pits and a battery on
a point standing out in the bay opened
The warships poured in a thunderous
volley, their guns belching forth mas
sive shells into the swarms of the ene
my. ' The crews of the boats calmly
proceeded with their desperate work,
notwithptanding the fact that a' nuro-
ber had fallen, and finished it, return
ing to the ships through a blinding
smoke and a heavy fire. .'..; ;
One man in a Marblehead boat was
killed, and six were seriously wounded,
one of whom, Robert Boltz, is now at
Key West, and is expected to die before
morning, a bullet having passed
through the base of his brain. Harry
Hendrickson, ' who also may die, was
shot through the abdomen. ,
More than 1,000 infantrymen on shore
kept up a continuous fire, and the bul
lets from the machine guns struck the
warships 100 times, but did no great
damage. Commander Maynard, if the
Nashville, was slightly wounded by a
rifle bullet, that, before striking him,
passed through the arm of an ensign,
whose name is unknown. Lieutenant
Winslow was shot in the hand, mak
ing three officers wounded in all.
When the Spanish had been driven
from the rifle pits, many of them took
refuge in the lighthouse fortress, upon
which the fire of the ships hai been
centered. - A 4-inch shell from the
Windom tore the struoture to pieces,
killing many and burying others in the
ruins. The Spansih loss is known to
Lave been very heavy, the warships
firing hundreds of shot and shell right
into their midst " : "
Following, is a list of 1 the badly
wounded: . V : -
Herman W. Kuchneizter, ' private
marine, shot through the jaw, probably
fatal; Harry Hendrickson, seaman,
shot through the liver, probably fatal;

buttock; John Davis, gunner's mate,
wound in right leg; William Levery,
apprentice, wound in left leg; Robert
Boltz, seaman on the Nashville, se
The remains of Eagah, who was
killed in the Marblehead , boat, were
buried at sea.
The Marblehead and Nashville used
their heaviest guns, as well , as their
small rapid-fire guns, and hundreds of
shots were thrown into the Spanish
troops. On board the ships a number
of men were slightly wounded." One
of the cables had been cut whenrthe
Spaniards opened fire. - The marines in
the boats replied at once, and machine
guns oh the fowrard launch sent in a
stream of bullets, while heavy shells
from the warships drove the Spaniards
from their rifle pits' on shore.
The cable which was cut at Cien
fuegos extended from that city to San
tiago de Cuba. It does not sever cable
connection with Cuba, as there is an
other line in operation between San
tiago' de Cuba and Kingston, Jamaica.
The severed cable is owned by the Cuba
Submarine Company. The. one in
operation to Kingston is owned by th
West Indies and Panama Company.
SPANISH LOSS AT MANILA.
Acknowledge That 300 Were Killed
,: ' I and 000 Wounded.
Madrid, May 17. A Spanish report
from Manila admits that the Spanish
lost 800 killed and 600 wounded when
Dewey annihilated the Spanish fleet.
The dispatch, whioh was to El Liberal,
was dated May 9. It came by special
steamer to Hong Kong; ' It Bays: -
"The arsenal has surrendered and
Cavite : has been evacuated by our
troops. The Spanish losses were 800
men killea and 600 wounded. The
enemy suffered considerably, including
one officer killed on the Olyiripia. The
Baltimore was damaged.
The Trans-Mississippi . Fair Will Un
doubtedly Give It Great Impetus. .'
A proposition on foot at the Omaha '
Trans-Mississippi fair this ' summer
which is of vital ' interest to Oregon '
farmers, is the manufactuie of sugar,
illustrated by a plant in operation on
the ground.. ' The complete process. cit
is said, will , be il'ustrated : and tall
grades of the - staple s article will : be
made in plain sight of spectators.
; In connection with this project, ac
tive interest has : been manifested by
the Oregon commissioners. ' Special
representatives of the commission have :
.visited the Grande Ronde -valley and '
the Willamette valley, and have ac
quainted those interested with the plan
for showing the progress . made in late
years at utilizing the most plobian-,
looking plant known to the agricul
turist. . . ; ... .;
1 In a general way it is stated the sub
jeot of sugar beet growing will be treat
ed from the time the seed is planted 1
until the crop is matured and will be
practically exemplified. .
Arrangements have- been made to :
demonstrate at he fair, that Oregon's I
Wondefully fertile soil is especially
adapted , to . the growing of the beet,
and that if capital in the middle west
ern states is seeking an outlet in this
promising Industry, Oregon 'Offers the '
best advantages and every inducement
to come here. - It will be the purpose
of those in charge of Oregon's exhibit
to explain what has been done for the
industry at La. Grande ; and to show .
that Willamette farmers will do the ,
same for a factory here. - .
' The agricultural college faculty,
which has enlisted its support in a
gratifying way, will arrange complete
exhibit of Oregon soils with scientific
analysis. This will be displayed in the
horticultural building at Omaha and -.
all queries relating to soil and crops
will be answered in a most complete
and satisfactory manner. Whatever
shall be accomplished for Oregon at tho
Trans-Mississippi fair will be praotieal, ,
as the commissioners have had that '
end in view in all they have under-
taken to do. 1 '
R. JD. Inman, of Portland, ' who is '
largely interested in working for the -success
of the Oregon display, says that
he is satisfied that the Omaha exposi
tion is to be a great success and that .,
Oregon will reap beneficial results in
greater proportion from the faot that
the exposition city lies In the path of
thousands bound , westward after gold
or a home this season. It is nearer
home and the attendance at the f.jir
will be drawn from all the trans-Mississippi
states and the East. If the;-'
Paoifio coast states want more people' :
to settle in their borders, additional
capital and fresh industries, Mr. Inman
most heartily believes this is the time ,
to let the world hear from us. Too.,
much cannot be done for immigration,
for upon future immigration depends

The suooes of the Oregon display at ;
the Columbian Fair at Chicago will be
repeated on a far more comprehensive ,
scale at the Trans-Mississippi Exposi
tion, which opens in June. The state '
commissioners appointed by Governor "
Lord, having in charge the work of
preparation have gone aotively to work '
and not a day has , been lost. Funds
are pledged, there is over 6,000 feet of
space contracted for on the ground '
floor of the department buildings at the
exposition, and everything is progress- ,
ing toward a successful end.
From the time the subieot was first
broaohed the proposed Oregon exhibit :
at the fair has met with popular favor.
The advantages to be derived from the
advertising which every section of the
state will receive there this year, seem
to be clearly realized. The advan-. ,
tages, it is believed, will be greater in -proportion
than came from the Colum-, '
bian fair, although in that world's con
gress of wonderful sights Oregon did
appeax as quite a factor. 1 The salmon
fisheries of the Columbia, the wool-
growing industries, the mines : and -
stock of Eastern and Southern Oregon,
the fruits from Hood river and the,
fertile Willamette - valley, and the
varied other resources of this state will
be represented. , '
