C ARTH AO EXA, SPAIN. Jan. 29.?
The Srst class armored cruiser Vizcaya
has started for America. The rest of
?the Spunish squadron is preparing to
enil for Havana.
The ironclad Cristobal Colon (form?
erly Giuseppe Garibaldi II). will accom?
pany the torpedo flotilla later.
WASHINGTON. Jan. 29.?No official
advices have been received here as yet
t>.> confirm the reported intention of the
Spanish government to send a fleet of
warships to Havana. The Spanish le
-gation was informed some time ago
that small gunboats now engaged in
patrolling the Cuban coast would be
strengethened soon by the addition of
a number of torpedo boa't-s, and it is
this flotilla that is expected to sail for
Havana as soon as conditions permit.
The boats are said to be wanted partic?
ularly for service on the Canto river
-.-(and in Havana harbor. The coming of
?the fine cruiser Cristobal Colon, one of
the best ships in -the Spanish navy,with
the torpedo boats, is said to be neces?
sary to their safety, as these little
craft must have a convoy to come to
their relief in case of severe weather,
and to help ou't their coal supply. Even
with this'assistance, it is said the boiuls
will have a risky voyage.
'MAJHtliD, Jan. 29.?It is announced
that the cruiser Vizcaya, which the
government has- decided to send to the
United States, will not be commanded
by Captain Conca.s Pulan, but by Cap?
This chsau-ge in the command of the
Vizcaya is believed to be due to tbe
feeling produced by an address deliver?
ed In 1896 before the Madrid Geographi?
cal Society by Captain Cunos Pulan,
?whocommanded !theCaraval Santa Ma?
ria, sent over by Spain to the Columbi?
an Exposition, giving his impression of
?the United States in such a manner
as to call forth from Hannis Taylor,
the then United States -minister to
Spain, a curt note to the Spanish gov?
ernment, demanding an explanation.

LONDON, Jan. 29.?After an unusual?
ly prolonged period of extreme tension,
all Indications point to en early im?
provement in, it not a complete solution
of, the various intermat?onol political
problems agitating the nerves of great
Britain. The foreign and colonial offi?
ces are beginning to see daylight
through the darkness which has long
been enveloping the far East, West Af?
rica, the upper Nile !and India, and un?
less signs fail and information from the
best informed circles ils faulty, the Mar?
quis of Salisbury and 'Mr. Joseph Cham?
berlain, secretary of state for the col?

Britain will secure about all she asks.
So Ear as China is concerned this view,
in connection with the speech of Cur?
zon, the preliminary secretary for the
foreign officce, at Bolton, on Tuesday,
and the rejx>rted acceptance of the Brit?
ish loan, is generally regarded as cor?
rect. As 'Mr. Curzon foreshadowed the
probable success of the Joan negotia?
tions, the laohievemertt of Great Brit?
ain's purpose in keeping the ports free
to the whole world and' the maintenance
of treaty rights wJhereby "spheres of
influence are rendereaVimpossible."
The Russian proposal of a 'loan to

Paris is dally showing less inclination
to burn its fingers in a game in which,
even If succcessful, Russia would be the

has never been so alarming as sensa?
tionalists attempted to paint it. Hence
the Czar's peaceful assurances and
Lord George Hamilton's statement in
his speech on Tuesday that relations
with Russia were entirely satisfactory,
will not surprise America.
Turning to West Africa, an official
of the colonial office informs Dhe Asso?

Thus far all the British demands
have been conceded nominally and
"-provisionally, pending the result of the
convention." But Mr. Chamberlain is
perfectly satisfied that the British
claims are upheld and that the French
will be confined westward of a line pro?
longed from the present Lagos-Da?
homey frontier to the Niger, and along
the right bank of the Nigar to Say. In
the meantime he does not propose 'to
risk being caught napping by a possible
adverse decision of the convention, so
he is pushing troops and supplies to the
front as rapidly as possible.
In regard to the upper Nile the in?
teresting news which Mr. Curzon drop?
ped on Tuesday to the effect that the
ratification of the treaty between
Great Britain and King Menelek of
Abyssinia, have been exchanged and
that the government hopes shortly to
accredit a direct representative at the
Abyssinian court, has given the great?

at Sobat, the purpose of the expedition,
it "Will readily be seen, is to cut off the

The health of King Humbert, of Italy,
is again causing uneasiness, the faint?
ing fits having recurred.
The Correro, organ of the Car-lists,
discussing the visit of the United States
battles-hip Maine to Havana, expresses
the belief that the Spanish public is
justifiably alarmed, .adding:
"As 'a fact, it is the government Itself
which is seriously alarmed, though
e-rery effort is made to disguise it. In
spite of the official statement of Admi?
ral Cervaras, the admiral of the fleet,
on last Tuesday, pat 'e, conference with
the minister of marine, when he .assert?
ed that the recent evolutions had dem?
onstrated the perfect condition of the
Spanish fleet). Admiral Cervaras in
reality reported that there Wais not a
ship ready for service, that the vessels
not actually in dry dock ought to be
there; that many of the boilers were
I defective and that some ships were not
tyet armed and that some of the vessels
require cleaning. In view of the per
fidityof the United States it is -not sur?
prising that such neglect and helpless?
ness creates alarm."
According to the same paper, great
importance is attached to the confer?
ence between M. Patenotre. the French
minister to Spain, 'and Senor Gulion,
?the Spanish minister of foreign affairs,
who. it is said, discussed the action of
the United States -'a^ it is well known
that there is great alarm in France tat
the course of events." The Pact that
?M. Patenotre is intimately conversant
with the United States' affairs lends
'additional importance to the matter.
