HOSTILITIES MAY NOW COMMENCE. Our Minister Not Allowed to Present the Ultimatum to Spain-President McKlb . Icy Hastily Summon IIU Adviser to I Conference at the White Home Senator ZavlSays "We've Taken the Trick" What (Senator Cullom Kays. Washington, April 22. Minister Wood ford left Madrid afternoon. at 4 o'clock in the Washington. April relations between the 22. Diplomatic United States and Spain are at an end. 'It is expected from now on that events will move with amazing rapidity up to the climax of actual war. Judge Day, assistant sec retary of state, early In the morning received a cablegram from Mlnlstei Woodford at Madrid stating that he had been handed his passports and had been notified that all 'official relattons between "the United States and Spain were ended. His cablegram said that he had been given his passports before he had had an opportunity to present the ultimatum transmitted to him for submission to the Spanish government, the delivery of the ultimatum to Min ister Polo having been accepted by the Spanish government as a formal an nouncement on our part. Hurried to the White IIoue. Judge Day at once hurried to the White House, where he found the presi dent about to enter a carriage to take Mrs. McKlnley to the railroad station, where he Intended to see her off on a short trip to New York. The news that diplomatic relations between the United States and Spain were formally at an end was so Important that the presi dent bade a hasty good-by to his wife on the White House portico 'and re turned Immediately to ' the White House, where he and Judge Day held a conference, the result of which was the dispatch of Trlvate Secretary Por ter to the Capitol to communicate the news to the senate committee on for eign relation and also to leading mem bers of the house. It Is presumed that this was done In order to facilitate any action deemed necessary by congress. Dy a hasty summons Senator Davis of Minnesota, chairman of the senate com mittee on foreign relations: Senator Lodge of Massachusetts, a member of the committee; Senator Allison of Iowa, a leader lr that body, and others wer brought to the White House. "We've Taken the Trick." They Joined Assistant Secretary Day and the president shortly after 10 o'clock In a conference the purpose of which la to map out the Immediate pol icy of the United States. The confer ence broke up shortlyafter 10:30 o'clock. Judge Day, accompanied by Senator Lodge going over to the state depart ment. The assistant secretary would say nothing regarding the conference further than to authorize the statement that a public announcement would be made later In the day Senator Davis, of the senate foreign relations committee, was laconic and not explicit, simply remarking: "We've taken the trick." Asked specifically regarding the hand Ing of his passports to Minister Wood ford, he said that that was all right; that the delivery of the ultimatum to the Spanish legation here had served all purposes. War Declaration Not Necessary. The president did not Indicate to the senators and members of the house with whom he talked that he considered a declaration of war necessary, and it is understood that he has been advised by some of those whose advice he most relies upon that no declaration Is nec essary. Some of the leading senators consider that the congressional resolu tions and the ultimatum sent to Spain are all that Is necessary to give notice to the world that a state of war exists, while others hold that a manifesto to the powers advising them of the condi tion of affairs might be well. The best Information Is that the president Is dis posed to regard their advice and the probabilities now are that he will not ask congress to make a formal declar ation. What Senator Onlloin Say. Senator Cullom of Illinois, of the for eign relations committee, was at this conference also, and at 11 o'clock, on leaving the White House, said that the handing of the passports to Minister Woodford constituted the Spanish re ply and ended all peaceful relations. While an effort might be made In con gress to make a formal declaration of war there was no occasion for It, and In his opinion there probably would be none. He added: "There Is enough of a state of war now existing." Everything now, he suggested, would go ahead without preliminary action of formal declaration of war by con gress. Tne next step, ne saia, wouia De to call out the troops. HIGHLY COLORED ACCOUNTS Of How Minister Woodford Wan ITanded HU Pasnpnrts. Madrid, April 22. The newspapers of this city print highly colored ac counts of how General Woodford was handed his passports, but the circum stances In the case were as cabled to the Associated Press. The Spanish government, having received the text f the ultimatum of the United States from Its own sources, did not wait for the United States minister to present the ultimatum, but sent him his pass ports. It Is not expected that there will be any formal declaration or war, as Spain's action is considered a virtual declaration of war, and hostilities may begin Immediately. Both nations, how- aver, may make to their own ceople and to afl neutrals what Is termed ,rtti notification of war." All Troop Are Moving. Washington, April 22. Adjutant Gen eral Corbln of the army is In receipt of telegrams from commanding officers of troops throughout the country showing that every regiment of Infantry and cavalry and light batteries of artillery ordered to the south has started on its way there. In many cases where the distances were not over two days' trav el to the mobilizing points the regi ments have reached their destination. It Is hoped that all will have been set tled and the discipline of military life be fully under way when General Miles and his aides on his staff start on their tour of InsDection In the latter part or tne week. 'AFFAIRS AT HAVANA. The City In Ouiet but the Newspapers Are Not. Havana, Arril 22. The weather Is fine and warm and quiet prevails here. The government has accepted the proposal of Nlchola Tamin & Co., an American concern, to arrange fcr a supply of wat er rrom Palta and Colon. The contract will be signed Immediately. It Is looked uprn as a good arrangement from both standpoints. The Dlaro De La Madrid In its editorial praises the Spaniards of Mexico, who are said to have raised by subscription about $1,000,000 for Cuban relief. The same paper says: "There Is no fear of a scarcity of provisions I case of war, owing to measures adoute by the government and to the patriotic attitude of the Spaniards of Mexico." The Union Constitutional refers i high terms to the stand taken by Spain saying: "She does not need sixty hours not even one hour, to return the Amer lean's Insulting challenge." It says of the American ultimatum: "The disap polntment of the 70,000,000 of people will be great when they come out of the fight with the people over whose pos slons the sun has never set." It is currently reported here that the insurgents have declined to confer with the delegation of the colonial govern ment which was sent to treat with them for peace on the basis of a broader form of autonomy. It is added that the insurgents will only accept Spanish generals as mediators. Secretary Montoro has called a meeting of mer chants and bankers to discuss the sit uatlon. They have already agreed to help the government. REDUCES TERM OF ENLISTMENT. Senate Committee Amend the Volunteer Army Hill. Washington, April 22. The senate military affairs committee ordered favorable report on the volunteer army bill, with some general amendments. The most Important amendment is one reducing the time of enlistment o members of the national guard, where the guard of each state enlists in body, from three years to one. This change was made because of the be lief that the national guard of many states would go as a body for one year, but not for three years, and that is considered an Important advantage. Senator Money of Mississippi, in the senate, speaking of the fact that there would be no privateering by the Unit cd States in the war with Spain, said that the matter of deciding such question was entirely in the hands of congress. Senator Hoar gave notice he would Insist that all war discussions, such as that precipitated by Senator Money on privateering, should be In secret ses sion. DEATH TO THE YANKEES!" Madrid Students Engage In a Scene and Ilurn an Effigy of McKlnley. Madrid, April 22. A great demonstra. tlon of students took place at the prin cipal theater In Valladolld. The build ing was gayly decorated with . flags within and without, and the scene was one of wild enthusiasm. There were al most continued shouts of "Death to the Yankees!" and an effigy of President McKlnley was burned amid frantic manifestations of . Indignation. There were also cries of "Down with the Carl IstsS". Violence was averted by an orator, who secured the attention of the angy crowd long enough to exhort them to husband their energies and devote them to fighting the Americans. A telegram was sent to Premier Sagasta offering the .serlves of the whole gathering to be enrolled as soldiers in the coming war. May Hlow Havana to Atoms. New York. April 22. Dr. Gcnzalo Arostegul, who, with his wife and five children, arrived here from Havana on the steamship Zoe, said: "The Spanish will never leave the city of Havana standing if they are compelled to evac uate Cuba. The entire city Is under mined, and there has been no effort to conceal this fact In the Cuban capital. The placing of the explosives has been done during the past few weeks, and the Spanish openly assert that if Hav ana Is taken by the United States they need only touch a button and the city will be blown from the face of the earth." Spanish Vessel Sigh tel. Port au Prince, Haytl, April 22. The Spanish warship which was sighted to the southward of Jeremle, on the south west peninsula of Haytl, about 125 miles east of this place, was hovering about the coast. She was too far dis tant for her aumber of guns to be as certained, but she Is probably the same vessel reported from Fortune Island as being off Cape Mays!, the eastern ex tremity of the province of Santiago de Cuba, last week. It Is claimed here that she has been making a tour of the Hay- tlan coast, looking for merchantmen. Polo Enters Canada. Buffalo, N. Y., April 22.

New York, April 22. The submarine torpedo-boat Holland made four dives of a mile each, went through a series of surface evolutions, tried her aerial dyn amite gun, and expelled a dummy tor pedo from her submarine tube In Rar- ltan bay. The experiments were con ducted for the benefit of the board ap pointed by the secretary of the navy to witness the Holland's trlal9 and report upon her efficiency. Lieutenant Com mander C. S. Sperry, chief of the bu reau of equipment; Liuetenant Conv mander Swift, chief of the bureau of ordnance, and Lieutenant Rock, naval constructor, who comprised the board, witnessed them from a tug provided by the Holland company.

Argument in the appeal of Martin Thorn, under sen tence of death for the murder of Will iam Guldensuppe at Long Island last summer, was heard by the court of ap peals here. A remarkable change is said to have come over Thorn since his conviction, which was the result of the confession of Mrs. Augusta Nack. his accomplice in the crime. In Sing Sing, where he Is confined in the death chamber, he srjends all of his time, from the breakfast hour until the lights are ordered out at night, in reading, his fuvorlte books being scientific works and the fiction of George Eliot, Hugo, Thackery and Dickens. During the last three months he has read, apparently with care and under standing, no fewer than 200 books, the most of them being barge volumes deal ing with the most abstruse scientific subjects, and with his warden he free ly discusses the profound questions with which he has made himself ac quainted. This astounding mental transformation, which is Ihe first case of its kind on record in the big prison, has attracted much attention on the part of medical men, and will doubt less play an Important part in the ar gument for a new trial, and, 'if this proves unavailing, In a plea for clem ency.
