Marion Manoly Mason Sues for Drvorce
Will Maintain Secrecy.
Washington, May 17. (ien. Gree
ley chief of the United States Signal
Service has adopted energetic measures
to prevent the Spanish squadron from
keeping posted on the movements of the
American squadrons, lie has forbidden
the Haytian Cable Company from send
ing or receiving any messages except to
or from the, U. S. government which dis
closes in anyway the ) odtion of ourships
This prevents press dispatches, but it
will be a great improvement over the
war policy which has been in effect
thus far, as it appears from all indica
tions that the Spanish authorities have
had a perfect knowledge of all the
movements of our fleets and thus have
been able to elude us at every point in
the Atlantic, while the U. S. officers
have been completely in the dark as to
the movements of the Spanish squadron.
Ship Blown Up.
M.li;it, May 17. A despatch re
ceived from Havana says that a small
naval boat having a crew of 17 men has
been blown up off Cardenas' while en
gaged in removing torpedoes from the
harbor. Tho explosion was caused
through the negligence or the workmen.
All of the crew perished. The despatch
does not indicate whether the ship was
Spanish or American.
Lateii. Kr.v West. Boats which
have just arrived here from Cardenas
say they have no knowledge of any
boats being blown up and that its crew
perished as was announced in the dis
patch from Havana. The opinion is ex
pressed here that it probably arose from
tho report of the sinking of the Uirelict
by the Wilmington.
