Jan. 14.—A late dispatch received here front Madrid says the building occupied by the military club is surrounded by the police and that eighty officers have been placed under arrest. Special editions of the newspapers practically agree that the movement in Madrid Is directed from the throne and that it follows as a result of dis closures made upon arrests at Lisbon last week, when reports were promptly denied that a plot against the government had been unearthed. It is even hinted in some of the papers that the change made in the ministry at Lisbon was aue to dis closures identifying very high per sonages with the active existence of the alleged plot for a general upris ing and overthrow of the ruling house of Spain. The broadest interpretation is plac ed upon the proceedings of the night in Madrid, it being declared that the steps taken are the direct outcome of information obtained involving a large number of army officers in the planned uprising. It is stated that the discovery is not of recent date, but that knowledge of the alleged plans has been held for some time, arrests being delayed in order to give the plotters opportunity to fully in-1 volve themselves. It is declared that the arrests of 1 today and other steps taken by the | government were timed immediately before the hour for execution of revo- 1 lutlonary plans and that they cannot now be attempted. MADRID, Jan. 14.—The police and all other authorities refuse to discuss the actions of the government | today in surveillance of the military i club and the arrest of a number of officers. Rumors current are neither denied nor affirmed, absolute silence being maintained. The atmosphere is heavy with expectation, but there is little or nothing known of definite character.
