PROGRESS STOPPED.
NEW YORK. April 10.-A World spe
cial from aCiro says: From indications
here it is thought that the plan of pur
suingthe Anglo-Egyptian army toDon
irola has been suddenly abandoned. The
purchase of camels and horses has been
stopped. Lord Cromer and Sir Her
bert Kitchener have had a great deal
of telegraphic correspondence during
the last. :'.« hours. It has been found,
it Is thought, that the force up the Nile
is too weak to cope with the hordes of
PerVlshes now in the Held and gather
ing to the Khalifa's Hag between Aka
iheh and Dongola. It Is not probable
now that any attempt will be made to
advance beyond the former point at
? resent It Is believed, too, that it is
he' intention of the British to move
Stongly by the Suakim route when the
ifme for active hostilities arrives.
Sixteen additional British officers
Save been ordered to Egypt to take
jart in the Nile expedition.
CUBAN NOTES

Keoorted Dead
NEW YORK. April !).—A report has
just reached here from Washington
that the president has made a startling
move in the Cuban matter. It is said
to be nothing more nor less than a.
personal leter to Sennr de Lome, Span
ish minister, asking him to urge his
government to take action at once to
stop hostilities before the United States
intervenes.
A World special from Havana says:
A repor tthat Oome z died of heart fail

Coast Defense
CHICAGO, April 19.—The Tribune's
Washington special says: The fortifica
tions bill will be submitted to the house
tomorow and will carry in actual cash
an expenditure of live times as much as
was appropriated last year. Congress
has started in on a system of elaborate
fortifications for defense of the coast
line. Not only is a large sum of money
disposed of, but the appropriations are
so arranged as to provide means by
which a number of the important coast
cities can secure substantial fortifica
tions within a reasonably short tlme-
The bill to be submitted tomorrow will
carry in the aggregate about $111,500,060
and of this sum a little over half is ap
propriated for immediate use during the
coming fiscal year.

Mr. Hopkins in the house today. The bil
comprises live sections unCer the captioi
of "A bill to Increase and equalize tin
