MADRID REPORTS LATEST TELEGRAMS FROM THE CAPITAL OF SPAIN MINISTERS TALK PEACE ALL HOPE OP FOREIGN AID 13 ABANDONED MORE TALK ABOUT HONOR McKinley's Announcement Concerning Cervera Will Prevent Exchange of Prisoners Special to The Herald. NKW YORK. June 19.—A dispatch from Madrid' says: The Spanlsih minis-try is strongly Impressed by the peace manifesto Issued by the people of the province of Catalonia. This manifesto was signed by thirty association's and eighte*n local news papers. Catalonia is l the most indtpendent of the Spanish provinces. It Tias compara tively great Industrial wealth, and Barce lona, Its principal city, is a big Flapping port. The manifesto is the clearest utter ance yet made from a Spanish standpoint. Referring to the giving up of the colonies, the manifesto says: "It would be better to consent to amputation, however painful, than to continue a war that must be fertile In disasters. What folly it is to say more. Spain courts ruin before peace. It is more honorable that there be peace. Where is the honor in pouring out the blood of our soldiers and reducing millions, to famine?" Foreign Minister Talks The Madrid Heraldo publishes an Inter view with the foreign minister, who, al though reserved, lets It be understood that he is working for peace. He denies that the government expects the intervention, of the powers, declaring that there are no Don Quixotes even in Spain. The reported in tervention of Germany. It says, is pure imagination. Germany is not going to run risks with a strong nation in order to aid a weaker one. Dividing the Army MADRID. June 19, 9 p. m.—The statement that President McKinley has sent to Ad miral Cervera and General Pando messages saying that he would hold them personally responsible for the lives cf lieutenant Hob son and his men has produced' a disagree able impression here ln military circles, as showing that President McKinley distrusts the military honor of tfhe Spaniards, who, on their part, despise all threats. Such messages. It is declared, render the future exchange of the prisoners most unlikely. Germany Will Not Interfefe MADRID, June 19.

MONTIJO WAS A COWARD Chinese Version of Admiral Dewey's Cap ture of Manila SPANISH COLONEL COMMITS SUICIDE Archbishop of Manila Issues a Scurrilous Pastoral in Which He Tries to Influence the In surgents Against Americans Associated Press Special Wire • TACOMA, Wash., June 19.—The Oriental steamship Olympla, arriving here • • today, brings Chinese papers which accuse Admiral Montljo of cowardice at • c the battle of Manila. • • A special correspondent of the Hong Kong Telegraph writes to his paper • • from Manila, saying that the admiral did nothing more than flee from one yes- • • sel to another during the engagement. He was among the first ashore, and c • almost before the buttle was over was at his country villa beyond the city. • • He had not even allowed his captains to know where the Cavito anchorage c • was mined, and this is given as a reason why some of the mines were ex- • • ploded before the American ships approached them. They were exploded in c • order to give Spanish vessels a chance to cross the line. • „ A COLONEL SUICIDES • • Colonel San Miguel of the battery suicided when he found that the supply • • of ammunition was not what had been represented. Frauds hud been c • committed which had disposed of thi stock. c . A VINDICTIVE PRIEST • • The archbishop of Manila has issued a pastoral in which he declares: c • "Very soon the country will see an insurmountable barrier placed between c • you and your masters; there will be then for you no situation nor representa- • • tion. nor can you even participate in the government of the towns. You will c • be reduced to a separate civil state, Vilified and degraded like those of the c • lowest caste, and like miserable laborers, reduced to the condition of coolies, c • and further to that of beasts or machines, supplied or fed by a handful of rice ■ • thrown into your faces as a daily allowance, simply lo secure the fruits of • • your labor. This Is not all. The worst Is that you will see the ruin of your c • temples, or that they will be turned Into Protestant chapels, where there Is • • no altar. Oh, this is hard. God, virgin and all are gone, and the cross will • • have disappeared from your cemeteries, the crucifix from your schools and • • the ministers of the true God who made you Christians through baptism." • • In conclusion he urges the Spanish to resist with all their power the Amerl- • • cans. • • ANTI-BRITISH FEELING • • There is a strong anti-British feeling among the Spanish In Manila, who are • • of the opinion that the English people have shown their sympathies with tho • • United States too openly.

Captain • • Cobban of the collier Zafiro was accused of being the pilot. • LOS ANGELES HERALD* MONDAY MORNING, JUNE 20, JB9B THE HAWAIIAN QUESTION IT WILL OCCUPY THE SENATE THIS WEEK ANNEXATION ALMOST CERTAIN Obstructionists Who Are Against An nexation Will Try to Prolong Debate Till Adjournment Associated Press Special Wire WASHINGTON, June 19.—The Hawaiian question, comes to the front again in the senate during the present week, but under somewhat different circumstances from those which attended its presentation at the beginning- of the session. The purpose was then, as It is now, to secure the an nexation of the islands to the United States, but the effort at that time was to secure t-his result by means of a treaty, whereas the present course was through the instru mentality of a joint resolution. On the first occasion the matter was considered in executive session, with the public excluded, while now the doors are to*be thrown open and the world Invited. What the outcome of the question may be, or when the vote may be reached, no one will undertake to say positively. The lead ers on both sides are full of prophecy, but there Is so much discrepancy between their opinions as to render it necessary to dis card one in order to accept the other. The friends of annexation assert that there Is no possible doubt of their ability to pass the resolution and say they have forty-six senators, or one more than a quorum, pledged to remain In the senate until the question can. be decided, while the oppo- Ing leaders declare that forty-eight senators have assured them they will vote to ad journ in preference to remaining in session indefinitely for the consideration of the Hawaiian question. Supporters Confident The supporters of the proposition express confidence that action will be secured within ten days, while the opposition contend that it will be found to be impossible to secure a vote during the present session of con gress. The advocates cf annexation de clare that they will not make any speeches, leaving the opponents to occupy all the time to be consumed by this means. The opposition say they are willing to make the speeches if compelled to do so, but that if forced to do this, they will Insist that the friends of the measure shall maintain a constant quorum in the chamber. They also predict that the annexationists will find themselves compelled to participate in the proceedings, as they expect to advance points which will demand refutation, or at least reply. In view of this generally contradictory condition, one can only base prediction on general conditions. There Is no doubt in the first place that the annexationists have a majority in the senate if a vote can be reached. If a vote could be gotten now the result would be about fifty-four for annexa tion to thirty-five against ln a full senate. Of these fifty-four senators there are, how ever, quite a number who are not zealous and in whose minds all doubt as to the pol icy of acquisition of outside territory has not been overcome. May Eorce Adjournment These senators, as a rule, are indisposed to remain, ln session for any length of time during the hot summer months to consider Hawaiian annexation. Most of the sena tors of this class are Republicans, and there Is a probability a sufficient number of them under normal circumstances to join with the Democrats to force an adjourn ment. They find themselves confronted, however, with the request of the adminis tration to remain nnd pass the resolution as a war measure, and some of them are dis posed' to sink their own preferences ln obe dience to the presidential wish. The gos sip as to the probability of a postponement until a fixed day In the next session In creases and many persons are predicting that this will be the outcome of the contest. A test vote will probably be secured on Monday on the taking up of the resolution. as It will be necessary In order to get it up to displace other measures on the calendar.

The loss Is over $86,000, and the Insurance Is less than half that amount. The conflagration was started Just be fore noon by the explosion of a gasoline stove in a restaurant recently started by Mrs. Mary Mann, ln a frame building ad joining the postoffice, and the wind, which was blowing a heavy gale from the northwest, drove the flames toward the business portion of the town. So tierce was the blaze that two Southern Pacific engines which were put to work on the fire made no perceptible headway. The town Is entirely without lire fighting facilities, but the citizens turned out en maese an! fought the flames as best they could.

While lighting the Are, Charles Rosine was compelled to jump from the second story of the Odd Fellows' building, and both of his legs were broken. The residence portion of the town, which Is north of the burned district, escaped destruction, owing to the direction of the wind. The losses and insurance, as closely as they can be estimated tonight, are as fol lows: Simpson & Gray, $500, Insurance not known; Mrs. Falrchiid, $5000; insurance $1200; Mrs. Kohler, $800; Insurance $300; D.

The damage is probably close to a million dollars. The fire was gotten under control at 9:30 a. m.
