Madrid, May 7. The Imparcial says the officials of the German embassy here have received a dispatch from Hong Kong, saying that the American Commodore In Manila Lay is reported to have effected a landing at Cavite after a fresh bombardment of that place. London, May 7. A dispatch from Shanghai elves what purports to be the Japanese report of the fighting ac Manila, received via the island of For mosa. It eays that after disposing of the Spanish fleet and Cavite Commo dore Dewey bombarded Manila Itself.

Vlles of Boston from a friend in Singapore was read at the banquet of the Electric club: "Reliable information received here corroborates news of Dewey's victory at Manila and says he is now execut ing the duties of governor general there." NO NEWS AT WASHINGTON. Nothing of an Ofllclat Nature Concerning Commodore Dewey. "Washington, May 7. The fifth day since the battle of Manila opens with out bringing the slightest trace of news of that engagement from any official source to the navy department. THa state department was in equal Ignor ance, notwithstanding the fact that It had taken steps to receive the earliest information that might reach - Hong Kong, through Mr. Wildman, the Unit ed States consul at thatpolnt. There is no apprehension expressed, however, as to the safety of the American fleet at Manila, though there is a dawning suspicion that Commodore Dewey was not able to subdue the forts at Corre gldor island and the defenses of Manila proper Immediately. From the meager reports received from Manila before the interruption of cable communication It was not made quite clear that the Spanish forts at Cavite were forced to surrender Imme diately succeedins the naval engage ment. If that were the case, Commo dore Dewey would be under the neces sity of destroying or capturing them afterwards In order to ensure the safe ty of his own fleet. Likewise It would be necessarily to silence the Corregldor guns In order to avoid being bottled up In the harbor. Both of these tasks take not only time but ships, and it Is not to be supposed that Commodore Dewey would feel Justified In sending one of his vessels away for the simple purpose of carrying news when she was needed in the fight. CONTROLS THE rillLirriNES. Government of the Inland Said To He Carried on by Dewey. New Tork, May 7. A dispatch from London says: Commodore Dewey has followed up his first victory with a sec ond. The Americans are In control of the Philippines. Manila is captured by the American fleet. The government Is now being carried on by Commodore Dewey. This news reached London In a private dispatch from Hong Kong. It Is the first news from Manila that does not bear the stamp of Spanish author ship. How the news reached there is not stated, but it. is possible that It came over In some swift merchantman which was lying in the harbor during the engagement and which set sail be fore Dewey started the dispatch boat. This private telegram confirms the news of the destruction of the Spanish fleet and the sinking of the flagship Relna Christina. From the same source It Is learned that General Alejardrlno, the rebel leader who was taken over from Hong Kong by the American com mander, landed on the coast from one of the American transports, taking with him a quantity of ammunition and arms for the insurgent forces that hov ered about the city. It Is thought that these insurgents lent a brave hand when Dewey attacked the defenses of the city and helped to bring about a speedy end. GETTING THE PEKING BEADY.

"Austria Is Indicated as taking the Initiative In mediation, but In diplomat ic circles a conference of the powers Is considered the only practical solu tion of the problem which touches the mission of Europe In the far east. I have reason to believe that England would only take part in such a confer ence with the United States by her side, and that great hesitation on the part of the government of the latter power would be shown to a choice of Paris as the place of meeting."
