position w as a negation of the Itoinauclaiiu.
Until this claim was admitted, no basis of
reunion was possible.
The cardinal further declared that he

Significant Actions Which Tolnt to an
Espousal of the Insurgents.' Cause
When Consrcis Meets.
According to nttacbea of the State and
Naval Departments it has become evident
that Mr. Cleveland is meditating sonic new
surprise for the country.
According to tbeso sources of Informr.'lon
there is abundant oldencc that some policy
is being thought iner by the President,
which concerns some foreign power, pre
sumably Spain, and Its dependency, Cuba.
It Is twlnted out by these naval Informants
that they have been called upon recently
to maSe retxirt upon and gather Informa
tion concerning boutb Atlantic waters,
Cuban ports, the number ot-esscls we bave
that are best adapfd for transports, the
number ot men that could be landed in
Cuba, and other data ot like character.
They say also that L'eut, Pillsbury has
been receutly called lo the Naval War
College on account ot bis great experience
In coast suney work and bis superior
familiarity with the Carrlbbcan Sea, the
shores and waters of which he has par
ticularly studied. From this same source
it is learned that plans for naval evolutions
and fleet maneuvers with the capture of
Cuba as an object and Its defense after
capture, bat e been called for and submitted
by arious experts in the department.
From a well posted political source It
Is learned that there is talk of Mr.
Cleveland coming out with a vigorous
foreign pollcy,and a possibility of Ills
taking sonio action with regard to Cuba
In order to forestall a Republican move
ment to bring about the recognition of
tiie belligerency ot the Insurgents.
A well posted diplomat said to-day that
within a short time a demand would be
made by the Cuban Insurgents for the
recognition of their belligerent rights.
Capture of Prisoners, Arms and Am

New York, Sept. 14. Sympathizers In

a force of Spaniards in the village of
Calmanera, about tea leagues from the

unusually heavy, one sergeant and fifteen
men being killed and thirty-one men and

It Is not known exactly what the Spanish

United States May B Asked to Save
Baltimore, Sept. 14. The vessels which
have arrived In Baltimore from Cuba this

have ordered troops to protect the iron ore
mines of Juragua and the Spanish-American
companies, both American owned properties:
Tho same source of Information state
that tlicre Is an. increased apprehension
over the ability of the Spaniards to protect
the mining property. IJow troops have been
ordered to protect tbo' property from the
filibusters. If the Spanish authorities
prove unable to cope with the situation, the
United. States Government will be probably
asked to protect the American property.

Neither Sir. Mora nor any of his attor

ish minister transferred to Acting Secretary
Adee the amount agreed upon as consti
tuting final settlement.
NO DELAY IN DIVIDING.
Crammond Kennedy, chief counsel for
Mr. Mora, said to the Times reporter that
lie did "not apprehend any delay in appor
tioning the funds among the lxncficlaries
ot the claim.
He believes the temporary restraining
order secured rrom Justice Cox by Mrs.
Frszer will under no crcumjtanccs serve
as a bar to the distribution of the money.
He eaysit is an Injunction Issued against
Richard Olney as an individual and can
not affect his actions in an official ca
pacity. On the contrary, Mrs. Frrzer Intimates
that she has assurances which convince
ber that Mr. Olney will transfer no por

settled in the courts.
MR. OLNEY NOT HERE.
Sir. Kennedy, howeverholds that no
other assignments can be affected except
j those made by Dr. Dexter, against whom

Secretary Olney is not expected to re
turn until a week Irom this time, and in
the meantime Mr. Adee, as Acting Secre
tary of State, will bave replied on next
Wednesday as to the temporary Injunc
tion, and this question will be clrared
away, so that Mr. Olney can act without
fear of becoming entangled In legal com
plications. There wns no ceremony about tre paying
of tb: Mora claim. Senor de Lome-appeared

He handed to Mr. Adee a draft, signed
by himself, on the Londtm financial agent
ot the Spanish government, for 29S,412

1,500,000 Spanish pesos, and Mr. Adee
delivered In return a formal receipt for
the amount signed by himself as Acting
Secretary ot State.
.What steps will be taken to collect the
amount of the draft, have not been deter
mined. Mr. Adee has left that to Secretary
Olney. There is apparently no hurry In
the matter, as it iriay take some time to
arrange the assignments.
This morning a bailiff attempted to serve
the injunction papers on Mr. Adee, but as
they were directed to Richard Olney, Mr.
Adee refused to accept the scrv ice, and. at
his suggestion, the bal'iff returned to the
court to have them made serv Kcab'e on "the

San Francisco, Sept. 1 1. The board of
health held a special meeting this mornlnz
to consider the Hawaiian cholera situation.
Slayor Sutro, who was present addressed
the board, statlrjg that Sail Francisco had
the whole beahli of tie United .States In
her hands, and that the greatest care
must be taken.
The lward, after considerable discus
sion, t!i tared Honolulu to be nn Infected

from there until action is taken by tho
Dr.' Rupert Blue, of the United State
Marine Service, in this city, received two
letters tlii-s morning from his brother, Victor
Blue, who is an ciislgu on board the United
States steamship Btnnington, now sta
tioned at Honolulu.
In one letter, bearing date of August 23,
Ensign Blue states that cholera broke out
In the islands two weeks prev lous, and that
it was consUntly on the increase. The
death rate dally wa3 six, and of all
who contracted the dread disease only
one escaped with his life.
MORE MEN WERE SICK.
On September 3, two oays before the
sailing ot the Mariposa, Ensign 1 lue
wrote again. He Hated tnat six men
were down with the disease ou board
the Bennington, and that one sailor had
died. The other men were doing w ell, but

gone southward 1C0 miles. We will re
turn oncea week after mail and orders. In
one day thirty five casee, were reported at
Honolulu, and nearly every one resulted
fatally. I hope to be able to give you bet
ter news when next I write, but I fear
that I will not be so fortunate."
Dr. Blue slates that the United States au
thorities will assist the. state and local
officers in preventing the entrance of the
disease into this country. He thought
this could be accomplished by exercising
NOT OV THE BELGIC.
The Occidental ami Oriental Company
Is still of the opinion that It was not the
Uelglc which brought ehokni into Hono
lulu. The uiricers of the company say that
as the llrst death from cholera on the
Bennington occurred on August 8, and as
the Belgic did not get into Honolulu oa
Its trip Irom Cblui to ban Francisco un
til the 9th, the cholera must have been
In Honolulu before the Belgic arrived.
The elfcctof the cholera scare has been
so great that Spreckle-s Bros, have or
dered that the Slonawai, which sails for
Australia ne"U Thursda3' via Honolulu,
must carry no passengers or freight for
Honolulu. The vessel will, however,
touch at the islands for the purpose of
carrying the mail. Thl3 step was taL'j
upon the advice of" the captain, who con
vinced the Oceanic Corapa-iy that It wojld
