Internal Politics a Disturbance in
the National Program.
London. Sept. 22 ?Hon. Hnnnis Tay?
lor, former American minister to Spain,
arrived in London ftom San Sebastian
to-day. Mr. Taylor, in conversation with
an interviewer, denied the truth of a re?
ported interview with him published *ln
the Madrid Imparci-il on September 17,
in which ho was noted as snying thnt tho
American people cared nothing for the
Monroe doctrine. His words, he snid,
were exactly tho opposite. Ho also de?
nied tho statement that at one time he
was on the point of demanding his pass?
ports and bnd so intimated to the Madrid
Mr. Taylor declined to discuss tho
peudiug situation between Spain and the
United States until he had severed his
connection with the diplomatic service at
Washington, which he would do about
the middle of October, but ho gave the
Times reporter a clear exposition ol tho
present political crisis in Spain.
"A ureat struggle is going on in inter?
nal politics,'' said Mr. Taylor, "which
involves an attempt on the part of Gen.
Afscarraga, the present president of the
council, to concentrate In the cabinet rep?
resentatives of all tin1 factions of the con?
servative party. The largest section is
led by Benor Silvela, who stood apart
from the la'e *Prnmiei Canovas because
he had declared the party to have been
corruoted by Romero'Rohledo, who we
would call the 'Ross Tweed' of Spain.
"It is uot likely that Silvela and Ko
inero Rohledo can lie united. If this Is
true,the present ministry must, soon give
way to the liberals under 'the leadership
of Honor Sacastn. What effect the latter
will have upon Cuban affairs 1 do not
know, as Sagasta has not manifested any
stronger disposition i'< favor of real Cu?
ban autonomy than Canovas did.
"The Spanish people are not yet. suffi?
ciently educated to govern themselves
upon republican principles. Senor Cas
tellar is right in not wishing for a Span?
ish republic yet, although he is a repub?
lican. The country, however, has strong
democratic leaninus and will eventually
be a republican stronghold."
Mr. Taylor intends to pav a visit to
Piofessor Freeman, the historian at Ox?
ford, and will sail for New York on Oc?
tober 7, on board the American lino
steamer St. Paul.

to the up-country bazaars deducing from

WEYLER IS ANGRY.
Blames Kis Admiral for Allowing
Filibusters to Land.
Havana, via Key West, Sept. 33.?The
news of the successful landing of three
filibustering expeditions'on the northern
coasts of the provinces of'Pinar del Rio
and Santa Clara has stirred up the whole
personnel of tho navy department in Ha?
vana and caused a blistering communica?
tion from General Weyler to the Spanish
"What is most irritating," says the
captain-general, in his document, "is the
fact that one of those expeditions passed
within a fow miles of Havana's Morro
Castle, and within 'reach lof our guns,
without being observed by auy of the
many gunboat* which are suppose to pa?
trol our shores." This is the expedition
landed at Puerto Ksconido, a few miles
from Havana. It said also that 'on Sep?
tember 1(1 the filibustering steamer
Dauntless, which brought tho three ex?
peditions to Cuba, was..seen, on her third
trip by the Spanish transatlantic steamer
Heina .Maria Crlstiua, while approaching
the ccast of Santa Clara "province. The
steamer was on her way to Havana from
Spain and Porto Rico.
The captain of a Spanith schooner,
which entered the port of Matan/.as from
the Bahamas, has reported that the
Daunt loss received aid from the keeper
of an English lighthouse on one of the
British keys The filibusters, according
to this version, were short of coal and
provisions, and both commodities were
supplied by the English ollicial. General
Weyler has ordered an Immediate inves?
tigation of this reprrt with a view of pro?
testing to the British government.
Cipher dispatcher about the affair have
also been sent to Senor Dupuy do Lome
at Washington and answered by him. It
is believed that the Spanish minister will
take some steps against 'the Dauntless
and its crow and add tho three expedi?
tions to the list of Spanish claims for
which damages will bo asked from the
United States. This list, it is said, here,
has been already prepared as an answer
to General Woodford's proceedings at the
court of Spain.
The indignation that the news [about
the Dauntless' doings has produced here
among tho uncompromising Spaniards is
hard to describe. They sincerely believe
that the American Government is help?
ing the Cuban ,'pa! riots in the United
States to ship tvar material tot Cuba, and
thoy refuse to listen when they aro told
that really the administration does all in
its power to enforce the neutrality laws
in a sense favorable to Spnin.
