British Dcslro>icr Easily Cuts
Through Massive Obstruction.
Portsmouth. July 2S— The inefficiency of a
massive boom with wire entanglement to pre
vent the entrance of hostile torpedo craft was
demonstrated In Portsmouth Harbor this morn-
Ing, the destroyer Ferret cutting through the
obstructions wltli the greatest e&so.
The boom consisted of massive timbers and
eteel spikes, the outer edge beinsr bound to
gether with stout wire hawsers, with hawser en
tanglements above and below the water. The
Ferret, whose bowp were specially strengthened
with sharp steel plates, steaming at full speed,
about thirty miles an hour, charged directly at
the centre of the boom, and cut through with
out apparently much Injury to herself.
The Ferret was manned by a skeleton crew of
volunteers, all of whom assembled on deck Just
before the Impact, expecting to be thrown over
board by the force of the shock. The razor-like
bow of the swift travelling ship, however, cleft
the obstruction in two as if it had been a col
lection of cabbage stalks.
The Ferret seemed to have suffered some dam
age under the waterllne. as the pumps were
net to work, but she showed no outward sign of
being any worse for the feat, and sailed quietly

cause of this fact and the spread of the move
ment the government has ordered the governors
of the provinces concerned to employ the most
stringent measures and to maintain order at
any cost.
The hostility of the people against the Moroc
can campaign, -which has been followed by wide
spread disturbances, is based on resentment
that the nation has been plunged in a foreign
war, and that the nation's sons are being saorl-,
flced because of opposition to a private mining;
undertaking. The poorer classes, from which
the regiments are chiefly drawn, are especially
bitter. complaining that the man who can pay
$300 is exempt from military service. It in the
poor, therefore, they Bay, who are forced to co
to Africa to meet death.
The greatest antagonism has been aroused by
the mobilization of the reserves. Many of the,
m«n In the reserve forces have large families
without means of support. Touching scenes
occurred when the poor workmen were called
to the color*. They wandered distractedly about
the streets, loading their children, whom finally
they were forced to abandon. At the last mo
ment, however, th«» government decided to keep
the reserves In the home garrisons, and chari
table, persons cared for the unprotected wives
and children.
The Moroccan mission, which formerly was
welcomed in the streets, is now received with
hoots and cries of derision. The envoys came
here to effect a settlement with the Spanish
government on Moroccan affair*
Advices from the front say that the holy war
sentiment is spreading among the Interior
tribes, v ho. so poon as their crops are gathered,
are expected to flock to The coast and Join the
Riff tribesmen.
While Spain 1? convinced that she ha* a huge
task on her hands. It is said by the government
that a. large army will soon crush the Moors,
and it la considered fortunate that the tribe* are
concentrating at afelltia Instead of forcing the
Spanish troops to penetrate Into the wild and
unknown Interior.
The notorious anarchists Cardenal and Her
reros are represented as being the leaders In the
rioting at Barcelona, which wan most violent,
and accompanied by the destruction of property
and Incendiarism. The. Convent of Merastaa
was taken by assault, and the Church of Pt.
Paul and the Congregational schools of Bt.
Antoine were burned. The Captain General and
his staff were fired on as they were riding
through the Boulevard Paraleto.
Bands of strikers have been sent from Bar
celona to the surrounding country to destroy the
railroad, with the object of preventing the ar
rival of troops. The troops from Valencia were
forced to disembark at Vendrell. seventeen miles
from Tarragona, from where they drove the
strikers before them.

Sir Hundred Spanish Casualties in
Two Dot/ft' Fighting.
Melilla. July 2«. — An official report of yester
day's battle shows that It was one of the most
sanguinary of the present campaign. The en
gnge.tnent was fiercely contested, and cost the
Spanish forces more than 200 dead and wound
ed, the slain including General Pintos. two lieu
tenant colonels, commanding naval contingents.
and a large number of other officers.
.At 0 o'clock in the morning word was re
ceived that the Moors had destroyed several
hundred yards of railroad connected with the
mines. Which isolated and imperilled the ex
treme Spanish post. As It was imperative to
restore communication, a convoy, escorted by
two strong columns, was gent out in command
of General Pintos. It occupied the outlying
spurs of the mountain Guru^a during the entire
While the ronvov was communieatinK w ' tn
and reprf>vlFionlnir the stations, the Spaniards
sustained a heavy fusfllade from thousands of
Moors, who first fired from the fastnesses of the
mountain and then boldly charged in the face of
a murderous flre from the Spanish artillery.
Spanish officers describe the Moorish loss as
.enormoup. •
Reinforcements were hurriedly sent to the
support of the convoy and ltn escort, and these.
mi< vended in repulsing the Moor* and driving
them back to the hills.

in the Alfer ravine, killing and -wounding four
hundred men. The shattered fragments of the
column only escaped under the protection of the.
Spanish jrunboat Martin Alonzo Pinxon and the
Melilla forts, which fired two thousand rounds.
The Spanish batteries to-day are ceaselessly
bombarding the camps of the Kabyle tribesmen
at the foot of Mount Gurusra. Several of the
ramps have been burned, hut it is the consensus
here that until the Moors are dislodged from
Mount Ganssa, which Is S.nno feet high* and
dominates the entire peninsula, the Spanish po
sitions around Melilla are constantly threatened.
To accomplish this object It is believed that 2",
000 men will be required.
