War Developments Follow Eacl: Other In Rapid Succession. News Summarized From Varions Sonrcei Morro Castle Opens Fire On an Aiuerlcai Warship?New York Captures a PrizeSeveral Spanish Merchantmen TakenKi;; Naval Battle Looked For. The first guu ou the Spauish side was fired last Friday night at 11 o'clock. It came from Morro Castle, and the target was the flagship New York, of the Amercan squadron. The New York was sigualling to the othei ships of the fleet. It was about fivt miles distant from Morro. One of the big guns of the castle boomed and Ensign J. R. Eddie, who was officer ol the deck, carried the information to Captain Chadwick with the suggestion that perhaps it would be just as well for the New York to stop signalling. "No necessity for that," the captaiu replied, and glancing in the direction of the castle for an instant, he turned on his heel and went to his quarters. If the guns of the castle were really firing at the New York all of the shot fell short. The ships of the blockading fleet before Havana are the Mayflower, Iowa, Newport, Detroit, Marblehead, Indiana, New York and Wilmington, with the torpedo boat Porter attending the flagship. The New York captured a prize on Friday afternoon. While about half way betweeu Havana and Matauzas, she sighted a large Spanish steamer and gave chase. The steamer tried to get away ; but it was no good. She was soon overtaken and a shot from an 8-inch gun across her bows brought fitio nrnvpi) in hf> thfi Pedro. .v.. ? , of Bilboa, with a cargo valued at about $150,000. Prize ships, with their cargoes, are divided between the government, the officers and men. In this case the government will get onehalf, the admiral one-twentieth, the captain oue oue-huudredth, aud the men get equal shares of the balauce. The share of the meu amouuts to about $130 each. An unusually exciting event occurred during Sunday afternoon. It was shortly after a squadron had left to blockade Matauzas. Presently the Cincinnati was seen to deflect from her course aud head toward a distaut steamer. The increased volume of smoke from the stacks of the Cincinnati indicated that she was putting on more steam. The New York, the Marblehead and the gunboat Wilmiugtou started for the stranger. "She is a Spauiard," the men said to each other, aud the meu were jubilant. Admiral Sampson gave it as his opinion that the stranger was either the Oquendo or the Vizcaya. The call to quarters was sounded aud everything was gotten in readiness for actiou. The New York was steaming along at her very best speed, something like 20 miles au hour. It was noticed that the war vessel was flying the Italiau flag ; but that did not necessarily signify anything. By the time the New York got all of her guns trained on the stranger, the separating distance was only about 1,500 yards. Then there was a putt' of smoke and a gun boomed from the supposed enemy. Some of the men thought it" was a hostile shot; but the officers interpreted it as a salute, for 14 more?15 guus in all?were fired. The New York ran up the Italiau flag and returned the salute. It developed shortly afterward that the supposed enemy was the Giorvaui Bansau, one of the most powerful cruisers in the Italian navy. The Americaus were very much disap pointed. The Italiau pursued her eourse aDd entered Havana harbor. The New York Journal, of Sunday, has a story which purports to give the real reason why no assault will he made ou Havana for the present. Naval officers, so goes the story, are agreed that within the next few days there must, of necessity, be a territic naval battle in Cuban waters. The Spaniards will make a terrible effort to break the blockade. It is necessary, therefore, that the American ships take uo risks except against Spanish ships. It is thought that there will be a lauding of American marines somewhere close to Havana, soon?probably by Saturday?as a preliminary to establishing communication with the army of General Gomez. The Journal claims this to be authentic; but in view of the fact that the war department is uot uow advertising its intentions, the reader will have to form his own conclusions. SUNDAY'S It LOCK A DK DEVELOPMENTS. The Associated Press papers of Tuesday morning contained the fol lowing dispatch, written at Matauzas and sent from Key West on Monday morning at 7.42 o'clock : The United States torpedo boat Foote, Lieutenant \V. L. Kodgers commanding, has the honor of having been the target for the first shots fired by the Spaniards at the American flag during the war just begun. The tiring occurred between 5 and 0 o'clock on Saturday afternoon, while the torpedo boat was taking soundings in the harbor of Matauzas. She was within 200 or 300 yards of the shore. Suddenly a Spanish masked battery ou the east side of the harbor aud not very far distant from the Foote, fired three shots at the torpedo boat. They all went wide of the mark and the Foote returned leisurely to the Cincinnati, where she reported the result of her soundings and then announced that she had been fired upon. The Cincinnati was anxious to steam in instantly and reduce the Spanish batteries, but she was uot permitted to do so. No captures are reported by the fleet off Matanzas. It is alleged that two Spanish gunboats were seen in shore, but the report could not be verified. Between 9 and 10 o'clock last night -t- IV I.ea ....... mi!..!!. Hie 1^IUIIIIV09 ??ao oiV(%u?iu^ towards Matan/.as, whose lights wert rellected on t he sky a few miles south' eastward. A large lire on shore wa> exciting comment on board the dis patch boat, and wonder was rife as It where the United States blockading lleet was to be found. Suddenly j lookout on board the dispatch boat reported : "Torpedo boat astern ; com iug up fast." A moment or so later, by her lights, two red and one green, and by a rocket which she sent up, the torpedo boat t Dupont was made out. The rocket was answered by a glare from the searchlights on board the cruiser Cincinnati, the beams beiug thrown full ] on the Dauntless and on the Dupout. The dispatch bout of the Associated , Press had come, unawares, within .ithree miles of the Cuban shore and far .liuside the prescribed limits. The Dauntless made known her , identity and soon a boat from the Cincinnati, in charge of Ensign Mclntyre, pulled toward her. The papers and ! log of the Dauntless were examined . aud found to be satisfactory. . We exchanged news aud the Cincin, nati having ordered the Dauntless to ! lav to, permission was requested to re' - a _ Tr _ .. *1 r * : % T ? 4 turn 10 xvey west/. r^usiyu iuuiutjrc said he would transmit the request to , the Cincinnati. The Cincinnati was also informed that the Dauntless would cheerlully take back any mail. Iu ten minutes a boat arrived with the message : "Captain Chester's compliments and he will be obliged to you if you will take iu this mail. You cau go. Advise that you steam due west six miles when you make your first course, or you may get into more trouble." The instructions were obeyed literally and the Dauntless set off on her return. Before she had gone six miles, we saw a torpedo boat astern, evident- ( ly keeping an eye on us. Then we saw the Cincinnati's search light sweep ' the horizon and soon afterwards we heard four shots iu succession. As j they were not followed by auy others, < we presumed that some other boat had been overhauled. Certainly there was ] no bombardment of Matanzas commenced at night. The Dauntless made a good run, the north gale having 1 abated and the water being smooth iu < the straits she arrived off Sand Key light at 5 o'clock this morning. On board the flagship New York off Havana, April 25, 10 a. m.?The early 1 morning hours today were taken up 1 by a vigorous chasing of moving lights, s The only vessels spoken was the Brit- t isb schooner Iolanthe, of Windsor, N. | S. She was allowed to proceed. She was just out of Matanzas. No shots have been fired siuce yesterday morn- 1 : lug Ull CIllJCI 01V4U. The torpedo boat Porter made a < daring trip into the shore uuder cover of darkness last night, and Lieutenant Fremont, her commander, landed with , a small party and obtained valuable J information. The blockade continues 1 under beautiful weather conditions. When darkness came ou last night, Morro Castle showed a powerful j searchlight, and flashed it nervously , around the horizon. Another short . searchlight was also seen. It looked 1 to be from the direction of Santa Clara J batteries, to the westward of El Morro. THE FIRST CALL. j Tlie President Wauts 125,000 Volunteers I to Fight Spaniards. The president, on last Saturday, issued a call for 125,000 volunteers. ] The full text of the call is as follows : j A PROCLAMATION". , Whereas, a joint resolution of congress , was approved on the 20th day of April, 1898, entitled "A joint resolution for the 1 recognition of the independence of the people of Cuba, demanding that the government of Spain relinquish its authority and government of the Island of Cuba, and to withdraw its land and naval forces 1 from Cuba and Cuban waters, and direct- < ing the president of the United States to use the land and naval forces of the United States to carry these resolutions into etfeel," and Whereas, by an act of congress, entitled "An act to provide for temporary in- i creasing the military establishment of the , United States in time of war and for other 1 purposes," approved April 22, 1898, the j president is authorized, in order to raise a Onxf tfi iocno Lie 51IVI5111 DTI ' calling for volunteers to serve in the army | of the United States; Now, therefore, I, William McKinley, ( president of the United States, by virtue ] of the power vested in me by the constitution and the laws, and deeming sufficient occasion to exist, have thought tit to call forth, and hereby do call forth, volunteers to the aggregate number of 1 125,000 in order to carry into effect the , purpose of the said resolution ; the same to he appointed, as far as practicable, | among the several states and territories , and the District of Columbia, according 1 to population and to serve for two years, unless sooner discharged. I The details for this object will he immediately communicated to the proper authorities through the war department. In witness hereof I hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United I States to be affixed. , Done at the city of Washington, this 23d day of April, A.

Wants to Meet General Wej'ler With an Army. ' General Fitzhugh Lee went to Washington last Monday. The general ap- i [tears somewhat restless uuder the ] restraints placed upon liitn by the ( delay iu sending troops to Cuba. He is anxious to get back to the islaud 1 and attack the Spaniards, and predicts ! that if he is put iu charge of troops down there he will make quiek work of Blanco's army. I The announcement from Spain today , that Weyler had conferred with the queen regent, and would return to Cuba at the head of an army, proved < interesting reading fur General Lee, ( ?vbn t-iifl ?ft pi- bp read it that, he would < like nothing better than to face Wey- , ley with an army. General Lee appears to think that the proposed delay in sending troops to Cuba will prove somewhat dangerous. The rainy sea- 1 son sets in on the island about the middle of June or first of July, and he i had hoped that the troops would be | sent at once to Cuba, and that the , ! light, as far as driving the Spaniards from the island, would have been over i before the rain began to fall, for if i Americans uuaeclimated are caught on i the island after the wet season begins < they will be very apt to contract ' fever. It having been suggested to General Lee that the Richmond troops who had I s at first been somewhat loth to go to Cuba, had reconsidered, and were de> claring themselves as prepared to go ; wherever ordered, he exclaimed : i "Richmond and Virginia will do their I duty. I never knew them to fail, aud - certainly they can be depended upou now." TELEGRAPHIC SUMMARY. s< More Important Develop- T ments of Tuesday. . t! Special Dispatch to the Yorkvlllc Enquirer. Jj!

This information, which the naval depart- T ment has, no doubt, been in possession of since Sunday, accounts for the sudden departure of the Columbia aud a Minneapolis from Hampton Roads.

At last the call for the volunteer J oops from this state has been re- j jived from the war department. ^ 'hough anxiously awaited all day and j xpected by mail, it came by wire bout 7.15 o'clock last evening. That lere will be a prompt response to the s all of the president the events of the ast few days in this state leave no , oubt. Here is a codv of the call: , Washington, April 25, 1898. he Governor of South Carolina, Columbia, S. C.: The number of troops from your state, nder the call of the president, dated pril 23, 1898, will be one regiment and ue battalion infantry and one heavy batsry of artillery. It is the wish of the resident that the regiments of the naonal guard or state militia shall be used ) far as their numbers will permit, for le reason that they are armed, equipped id drilled. Please wire as early as posble what equipments, ammunition, rms, blankets, tents, etc., you have and hat additional you will require. Please so state when troops will be ready lor luster into United States service. Details i follow by mail. R. A. Alger, Secretary of War. Immediately upon receipt of the >ove call, Governor Ellerbe sent the Ilowing telegram in reply : Columbia, April 25, 1898. . A. Alger, Secretary of War, Washington, D. C. Your telegram received. South Carola will respond to the call of the presisnt. Will furnish information requested soon as practicable. W. H. Ellerbe, Governor. Later Lieutenant Stokes, U. S. A., id Adjutant General Watts, who ive the condition and equipment of e state militia forces at the tips of eir tongues, were in conference with e e governor. No further definite inrmation in regard to the matter will i obtainable until this morniug. ti WHAT THE CALL MEANS. When the terms of the president's 11 were read by the military men last 11 ght they seemed at an utter loss to nlerstand what total number of vol- , iteers the call meant. And they will main in the dark it appears uutil the (tailed letter referred to has been reived by the governor. It is general- n understood that the call will cover mething over 1,600 actual soldiers, bout all that is known of the provis- 8' ns of the volunteer bill is that the ii inimum number of men to be allowI in a company will be 84; with the a ree commissioned officers this will o uke a total of 87 men as the mini- *5 utn. The regiment will consist of 12 mpanies. This will make the mini- ( utn number of men, exclusive of reg- ' leutal officers in the South Carolina giment, 1,044. The battalion will nsist of a minimum of four com- 1 luies. The minimum number for t( e battalion is 348. A9 to the bat- ^ ry of heavy artillery it is impossible 1 say anything. In time of peace, at 11 esent the regular army battery iually consists of any number of men Dm 65 to 165, and can be composed ' 200 or more. It is generally ought that the battery will consist j ' about 216 men, and it will be under n e command most likely of an army J' .ptain. The battery will really const of infantrymen who will simply be lied artillerymen. There is nothing now to go by as to 1 a mnkenn of the troons asked for, ? ve the act of 1863. The minimum i imber of men allowed a company by I lat act was 78. ' * The regimental officers that the gov- j( nor will have to appoint, according ' a leading military man, are as fol- ; ws : One colonel, one lieutenant col- | lei, two majors, an adjutant, a quarrmaster, a surgeon, an assistant snr- " ;on, a chaplain, a sergeant major, id a quartermaster-sergeant. The ipointing authority usually leaves it > the colonel to select his adjutant, ( jartermaster, sergeant-major and s jartermaster-sergeant. The battaln will have only a major. As stated love a captain from the regular army ill most likely he appointed to have large of the artillery. Nothing has yet been said about the ] rmation of an ambulance and hos- ? tal detachment.

COMMODORE DEtVET. Most of the vessels ot tne Asiatic piadron which, according to the ssociated Press dispatches, have sail- ( 1 with sealed orders, according to the ? itest advices were rendezvoused at c ;ong Kong.

Governor El- 1 erbe made a stirring speech and told J ,he boys that he would call upon them c f there should be occasion. Mr. Har- ^ y De Pass was the spokesman on the lart of the boys. He thanked the s governor for his address and said that t .he boys would like to be among those vho planted the stars and stripes on e uins of the Morro Castle, and iu the jentre of old Madrid herself. He said hat the ancestors of the students had 1 'ought in the front ranks during the 1 Revolution, the War of 1812, the Vlexican war, the Civil war, and the ^ ions of those ancestors would see to it hat the glory of the Palmetto flag a ihould never be tarnished.

FYTPA CANTY PROPCRICS LA I lift ItfllWI UIIUULIII LU> My Fancy Grocery stock is, by far. larger than I have ever carried before ana is composed of the choicest and most select Canned Fruits, Fish and Meats on the market, including the choicest brand of ROASTED MOCHA AND JAVA COFFEE?blended?which it has ever been my pleasure to otter to your aristocratic epicurean taste, aud of course cannot be sold in competition with the "popular brands"; but in buying my coffee, you get coffee, and in the case of other brands you get silver spoons, signatures, and a conglomeration of other things beyond the descriptive powers of a chemist or pawnbroker. SNUFF AND TOBACCO. My stock of Lorillard Snuff aud Chewing Tobaccos is very large, and I can save both consumers and dealers money. I have the iinest quality of Porto Kico Molasses.
