Washington, D. C. April 14.-
Cuban war news received here may bo
summarized as follews:
There was serious rioting in various
parts of Spain, yesterday. Many per
sons were Injured. Hostilities still
continue in Cuba.
A member of the Spanish cabinet
says that all Spain will resist to the
bitter end any Interference of the Uni
ted States In Cuban affairs.
The Hying &quadron Is ordered back
to Hampton Roads after forty eight
hours target practice. It will then
be stationed at some southern port in
case war begins.
The government is making prepara

Washington, April 14. There was
a revival of general war activity In
the navy and war departments, im
portant conferences and hearings
were held, the most notable being the
session of the war board of the navy
department, before which Consul
General Lee appeared.
General Lee furnished a great deal
of definite data la regard to the forces
of the Insurgents and the Spanish In
Cuba, An important feature of the
hearing was the agreement that It
would be very necessary to Interrupt
the cable from Santiago de Cuba. It
Is proposed to teed a ship to the
southeastern waters of Cuba and, at
the outbreak of hostilities, drag for
and cut the cable from Santiago do
Cuba. It was decided to press the

of the army; but, after further consid
eration, it was decided to adhere to
the numerical strength of 40,000, pre.
ylously decided upon; yet there will,
within a day or two, be u compromise
on a force of 30,000. Everything is in
readiness, so far as routine work
goes, of securing volunteers and for
the concentration -of the regulars.
There remains for these two features
in the military programme only the
Issue of the presidential proclamation
calling for volunteers.
Admiral John G. Walker has been
detailed as a member of the war board
In the navy department.
Orders have been issued in the war
department prohibiting further use
of ammunition by the light batteries
of the artillery In field guns for the
Instruction of troops. The order has
a special significance in the fact that
the time has arrived when powder aud
projectiles must be saved.
There Is ominous news from New
York that dock No. 3 cannot be put
Into condition for service within 60
days. The dock situation, which has
given the authorities a good deal of
trouble in the last four or five years,
proves to be the most exasperating
feature in the whole war scheme,
Madrid, via Biarritz, France, April
14. Sagasta said after a long Inter
view with the queen regent, that he
could not say that the tone of the Mc
Kinley message was hostile to Spain.
The old premier's eyes glittered and
his voice trembled as ho said It. lie
refused to discuss the message until
the full officlclal text arrived. I have
taked to those in his confidence, and
find the old Spanish fox still believes
that congress will entrust the whole
Cuban question to McKinley and that,
with Woodford's assistance, matters
can be delayed indefinitely, or atleast
until Spain can be better prepared for
It Is a fact that Woodford has as
sured the Spaniards, even since the
McKinley message was delivered, that
peace Is certain. Woodford knows
the Spanish minister will not con
sent to the Independence of Cuba, nor
to intervention. Sagasta and the
ministry, as well as the queen, have
said again and again that Spain will
not surrender another point till she
Is conquered. The fact Is, the Span
ish ministry has now an Idea that
McKinley has offended the American
public by his message, and if he gets
congress to put the matter into his
hands he will continue delays Inde
Rioting in Madrid.
Madrid, April 14. Rioting was re
sumed at midnight last night. Many
persons were injured, in a charge made
by the civil guards. Quiet was re
stored but the government finds it in
creasingly difficult to repress the per
sistent clamor for war which comes
from almost the entire population,
Carllst Baron Singunen and 17 others
were sent to prison to await trial for
participating In the riots.
How to Take Havana.
WASniNQTON, April 14 Lee at
tended a secret session of the board
of strategy and gave his views on the
best way to take Havana. He spoke
for over an hour, going over the
whole military situation, describing
the military Spanish defenses, then
