The reports sent by thess detectives are known to nave worried the que?n regent almost beyond endurance, and advices from members of the diplomatic corps in Madrid have told that she has been more worried recently over the aggressive att.'tule of the Carl sta than she is over the war with the United States, because success for Don Carlos means the loss of the throne. Chris tina Is using every resource at her command to thwart the plots that Car list agents are carrying out In every part of unhappy Spain.

It ia under stood that Brigadier General Charles King will be in command of the next Manila expedition. lie will probably go either on the. Arizona or Scandla. Brigadier General Miller, now com mander of the Presidio, probably will remain for the present, at the expressed desire of General. Meniam. Referring to the men to go to Manila, General King said: "It is my personal opinion that every man of the expeditionary forces will be wanted in the Philippines and will go there. Even should Manila be taken, from the Spanish, and the war settled In the orient, as far as Spain Is concerned, with the forces now there or already ordered to depart, yet It Is not to be doubted that General Merritt will be glad to have &0.000 men before he is through with Agulnaldo. The men at Camp Merritt and the Presidio may rest contented that they will s?e all of the Philippines they desire " MIm Schley at Madrid. Washington, July 26.

WE HAVE XO CLAIM I'I'OX Cl'BA. Only One Contingency That Could Atlse Wherein the I' nl ted Mates Would Re Justified In Taking the Inland Advises Retaining Porto Rico Says Our Navy Should Re Enlarged and Our Land Forces Augmented. Washington, July 26. Ex-Secretary John Sherman, in an interview, said: 'I regret to hear of the reported differ ences between uenerais snarter ana Garcia in Cuba. If the Cubans deserved enough respect to be recognized by the United States, It seems to me they should be respected on the field of bat tle. They have battled for liberty and freedom from Spanish tyranny for half century or more, and now that the object which they have so long fought for is in sight, they should share in the fruits of victory. General Garcia should have been Invited to the surren der of Santiago, and if he was not a blunder was made. Congress passed a resolution to expel Spain from Cuba. In that resolution it was clearly stipu lated that we would leave the Island to the control of the people thereof after a firm and stable government had been established. Therefore, we cannot with any show of consistency lay claim to the island after it has been taken from Spain. Cuba for Cubans. "It Is yet to be determined whether the Cubans are capable of self-govern ment. If they are, well and good. We should turn the Island over to them, but If the Cubans become dissatisfied with their form of government after we set it up and rebel against it, we would doubtless be called upon to step In and take the Island. This, to my mind, is the only contingency which could arise wherein the United States would be Jus titled in taking Cuba. At this time It is not possible to form an approximate estimate of the amount of Indemnity we should demand from Spain. Much de pends on future events. It seems to me, however, that the Maine Incident should not be lost sight of when the United States begins to figure on indemnity. I have always believed that the Maine was blown up by the Spaniards. It may be, however, that the act was done sur reptitiously and without the knowledge of the Spanish government. But the Maine went into a friendly harbor on friendly mission, and should have been protected while in that harbor. This is a fact which the American people cannot lose sight of. Retention of Porto Rico. "Of the Spanish territory which may accrue to us because of the war there Is only one island which I would be in favor of retaining, and that is Porto Rico. There are reasons why Porto Rico would be a desirable acquisition But. as J believe, there Is no excuse for taking the Philippines or cuDa. Annex atlon of the Philippine islands would mean endless trouble for our govern menfe Already we are confronted with the Insureent leader AguTnaido. who has bedecked himself with Jewels Whistles and other , trinkets to distin- onlnh hlnrmplf from nfhtr mnrtnla Tf we attemptTo lay claim to the Philip pine group we may have serious trouble with the Insurgents. Porto Rico is needed as a coaling station for our war ships in time of war and for our mcr chantment in time of peace. The day has come when we should have coal ing stations In all parts of the world. The present war has forcibly demon strated that coal Is as valuable as gun powder and we should make every pro vision for fuel in the future. thou Id Enlarge Our Forces. "We have a navy of fair proportions, but the future will require an enlarge ment of our present sea force. I am emphatically In favor of an increase in our naval strength, but it Is Just as well that this Increase should come gradually. Our land forces also should be augmented. A standing army of 50,- 000 would not be too large for our popu lation. An Inter-oceanlc canal, which 1 hope to see constructed in the near future, would be of great advantage to us In defending our western sea coast. It would do away with the ne cessity' of maintaining a large navy In the raclflc. A canal connecting the Atlantic and Pacific oceans should be built by the government." MONEY FOR FIGHTERS. Paymaster Going to Santiago to Make th Roys Happy. Washington, July 26. Major Sniffen of the pay corps will sail from New York on the Olivette for Santiago, ac companied by three paymasters. They will begin the' payment of troors on their arrival and In a very short time will be Joined by other paymasters, who will assist In paying off General Shafter's army and then will proceed to Porto Rico to pay off the army of General Milts. A rather interesting question has arisen In regard to the rayrnent i f troops. A telegram has been received from General Shafter requesting Vm gold and paper be pent to Santiago, a tradesmen there refuse to accept Am' r Ican silver dollars at their jar valu and rat? them at 53 cents on the d. ll.;r like the Mexican d. liars and dollars of South American countries. H was Paymaster Gereral Stnnicn'3 tnt nt'on to uend as lit le r'lnr as p.ssble, cii fining it mostly io subsidiary coin for the purposj of n aklng change cn ac count of the greater convenience to take gold and paper, and he will con tinue to do so. Considerable Indignation Is expressed that American money of any kind Is discounted and a suggestion has been made to the stcretary of war thai any tradesman who refuses to accept Unit ed States money cf any kind at 100 cents on the dollar should b removed from any territory over which the American flag floats. It Is not known that any orders will be sent to General Shafter on the subject, although the suggestion has been made that American money should not be allowed to be questioned by the countries occupied by United States troops. The suppos.tlon Is that the refusal to accept silver dollars is the result of the long usa of the sliver of Mexico and the South American countrlesv which has never passed for more than half its face valu. STEAMER IS SUSK. ColUu Ret ween Two Vessels Occur la Lake St. Clair. Detroit, July 26. The steamer Ed ward Smith No. 2 was run into and sunk in Lake St. Clair, near the Flats, by the schooner Auran!a, In tow of the propeller Aurora. The Smith was bound up loaded and without a consort. whle the Aurora and Auranla were bound down. Another large propeller was also bound down close to the tow, and it I supposed the man in charge of the Smith got the prcpeller and tow mixed in his mind and in dodging the pro peller crashed into the Auranla, which was making about seventeen miles an hour. The force of the blow sent the Smith over to the west side of the channel and sunk her. The Auranla was badly damaged about the bow. The crew and a pleasure party on board the Smith were rescued without accident and sent to the Old Club. The Smith Is owned by John Mitchell of Cleveland, and valued at $63,003. The Auranla Is the property of Mr. Corrigan of Cleveland, and valued al $1D0,000. MINERS ARE STILL OUT. Hostilities Continue at the Coul Shafts iu Paun, Ills. Pana, Ills., July 26.

Mon day, however, opened with a renewal V-of hostilities between the operators non-union men and the union miners. The scene of the principal excitement was at the Springside mine. Just out side of the city limits, where Sheriff CoTsurn and a force of armed deputies had control. The union miners and their wives were congregated in large numbers in the roads and streets lead ing to the mine. They feared some weak union men might give in to the operators and resume work.
