THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER: HONOLULU, MAY 30, 1S9S.
Minister of Marine, Captain Aunon, rcwiviMl a dispatrh from Admiral Ccrvera, in command of the Cape Verde squadron of the Spanish licet. It read: "SANTIAGO IE CUP.A, May 11). This morning I have without incident entered this port accompanied by squadron. CERVERA." The Minister of Marine immediately went to the residence of the Premier, Senor Sajjasta, and communicated this inform ation. He then proceeded to the palace for the purpose of informing the Queen Regent, but her Majesty had already retired, and the news was conveyed to her by the Infanta Isabel. Captin Aunon then went to the Admiralty and cabled his congratulations to Admiral Cervera. on his arrival at Santiago de Cuba. Admiral Cervera, says a cable dispatch from Santiago de Cuba, did not sight an American ship during the voyage. He announces that tin? crews of his ships are in perfect health and enthusiastic. Continuing, the dispatch says: "The blockading vessels quickly, left on the approach of the squadron, whose arrival has created the greatest excite ment and enthusiasm at Santiago. Immediately crowds of peoph? thronged the quays and cheered our sailors. Havana's relief at the safe arrival of the fleet is very great, as it was feared the American ships which left the blockade there had gone to intercept the Spanish fleet. It is now believed the Americans tied in order to avoid a reverse." SPANISH FLEET PILIKIA. PORT All PRINCE, Hayti, May 21. Rear-Admiral Osbon arrived here this morning on the Dutch steamer Prins Frederik from Curacoa, where he met the Spanish lleet, consisting of the cruisers Viscaya, Infanta Maria Teresa, Equidabo (presum ably the Almirante Oquendo) and Cristobal Colon and two torepdo-boat destroyers. The Spanish squadron took on :J00 tons of bad coal and 100 tons of provisions and left Curacoa on Sunday evening at 0 o'clock. At 10::i0 o'clock it could still be sighted steaming westward. The ships have little or no coal and scant supplies of pro visions. The allowance to the men of the ships' crews for live days had been nothing but beans. The torpedo-boats are almost empty and in suclf condition that they would be unable to do much damage. FRANCE GETTING FRIENDLY. NEW YORK, May 21. A dispatch from Paris says: There? are remarkable indications in certain Paris journals hitherto inimical of a complete reversal of the French disposition toward America. TO MASS AT HONOLULU. The big army which is to occupy the Philippines, will con gregate in the Honolulu harbor. The Charleston will be anchored in the stream until all the transport boats have arrived. This will be ten days at least. The City of Peking was to have left San Francisco on Wednesday last. She will probably reach here? late Tuesday night or earlv Wednesday morning. The Australia and City of Sydney were to leave a day or so after the Peking. The Monterey is coming. The big monitor will not arrive until the latter part of the week. The Charleston brought no orders for the Pennington. It is expected, however, that the Mohican will arrive within a week or ten'days'to relieve the Pennington. The Pennington will probably be ordered to convoy. some of the transport ships to Manila. CHARLESTON'S ARRIVAL. The' Charleston was telephoned off Koko Head at 9:55 o'clock. Less than an hour afterward the Inter-Island steamer W. (2. Hall steamed out into the harbor to welconie her. On board were about one hundred and fifty persons, mostly mem bers of the "P.ig 100" committee. The Government band was also aboard. The Charleston was met this side of Diamond Head. Three mighty cheers were given by the towns-people which was heartily responded to by the navy men. It seemed as though everybody in town was down to watch the Charles ton come in. A I r.

Dear Sir: The Secretary Disc Plow I pur chased from you is giving us satisfaction. We are using it to plow under a crop of lupins. They are three feet high and very thick. Your plow turns them completely under, at the same time plowing the land fourteen inches deep. I feel satisfied that with this plow the draft for the same quantity and depth of work is as . 6 to 8. That is, with the old plow, to do the same work, it takes 8 good mules; with your plow it takes only 6, and they are less tired at night. Please send me another plow by first schooner leaving for this. You are at liberty to use this in any way you may see fit. Yours truly, A. LIDGATE.
