New York, June 2. —The following special London cable appears in the Evening Sun: The Evening Sun learns upon high diplomatic authority that the whole bus iness of intervention between the United States and Spain has been discounted, and is conai dered out of the munition at pres'ill. The Spanish representatives ill all the European countries have stand ing instructions to use their bestendeav oir to induce the Governments to which they are accredited to make representa tions on Spain's behalf, and, failing in that, to give whatever assistance they can. It is not believed that the representa tions made to the French Government by Senor Leon y Castillo, the Spanish Ambassador to France, differ from those which are operative throughout Europe. Whatever sympathy there may be with Spain on the Continent, no Government will attempt, mediation unless em powered to offer substantial conditions to the United States. The Powers have been made aware that President. Mc Kinley will not consider any proposals except such as are based upon the evacu ation of Cuba by Spain, but that a pro position to that effect will be imnie diatulv considered. Not being able to of fer these terms, no Eflropenn Power is moving in the matter. ■t t* 7 - ta 4. m . ff war Department rising. r Special Dispatch to Tick hin. ?

Special Dispatch to The Sun. New Yoiik. June 2. —The Evening Sun prints the following Key West special: The unloading of the cargo of coal of the seized British steamship Restorniel is being watched with interest today. Commodore Remev decided vesterd. v 10 seize the caigo at once, without waiting for the court's decision - The captain cf the steamer made a vigorous prot-wt, and declared that the coal should n t : e seized, as he would sink the ship nrst. It was found yesterday that the sliip'b hoisting cranes lmd been broken, and it is n iw suspected that arms are concealed beneath the coal. Unloading began this morning. ; even to the extent of acknowledging that tlie communication laid been sent. .......... , , , ! Later in tlie «uy the secretary h letter t went th lough the ordinary channels of Congressional reference, was sent to the Printing Ollice as a public document, and given the publicity which is cus tomary with relation to all routine com munications to Congress and the Execu tive Departments. Evidence of irritation caused at the Department bv the incident was given by the inquiries made by officials as to how it was possible .that a communica tion containing important confidential information could have gotten to the public. •Apparently the letter was not marked confidential, and being addressed to the Speaker, as are all communications from the Executive Departments to the House, its confidential character escaped the at tention of the officials of the House. Th re is the best of reason for be ieving that the inference drawn from the letter that the general invasion of Cuba will take place at once is a misinterpretation of its meaning. The letter fully confirms the state incuts made during the progress of the campaign in these dispatches lliat the first plan of the Department was to establish a base of supplies for the Cuban army bv landing a,000 men and that ci:- ! cumstances led to a change of plan, Gei -! era! Miles' idea of a general invasion by I a large force being adopted. I It is known to be still the plan of the Department to occupy Porto Rico and to J destroy the fleet and fortifications at Sar lingo before the general invasion of Cuba occurs, and General Alger's reference to [ the invasion of Cuba cannot properly be interpreted to mean that this invasion is ' to be tin first move. The very best in formation is that considerable "time will! elapse before the large invading army will be ready to move on Cuba. Meanwhile the Porto Rican and San- i tia^o expeditions are to proceed. The j ( hickauianga troops are to join (ieneral: Let* at Jacksonville and are undoubtedly destined for the occupation of Porto Rico. Jacksonville being the nearest point of departure from our coast for that iBiaml. * If Admiral Sampson and Commodore Sch ey have, contrary to the expeetatu n (.fine Department, undertaken the r. - j auction of Santiago, and there is a large i force ot insurgent < assembled in that vi- j canity, the necessity tor the military ex peditiouto that point may be^ relieved; hut the Department hint not t ins morn-1 mg received any inlonnation which 1 led to a consideration ot a change of pltw.

Schley, with a sufficient but not power ful squadron, was stationed at Santiago to prevent Cervera from escaping or sup-, plies from getting in to him, it being known at Washington from secret sources that supplies of coal and provis ions were on the way to him there. Schley's orders "were substantially these. Not to try to take Santiago or to reduce t.he fortifications. Not to engage Cervera, if he should try to escape, until he was clear of as sistance from the guns of the forts. Not to let him escape or let supplies or reinforcements get in to him from the sea Not to let the Spaniards make any re pairs or additions to the fortilicaitwiis at the mouth of the harbor. Ever since the fiasco at San Jttaii— of which the last has not yet been heard, by the way—the Administration has been most anxious that there shall be no more half-baked bombardments to be heralded abroad as repulses and Span ish victories. Indeed, so anxious was the Adminis tration, that it gave Schley a fleet only strong enough to tempt him, no matter how provoking the circumstances, into trying to imitate Dewey. "While Schlev's squadron as it stands is perhaps strong eni Ujh 11 fmee he harbor and capture Cervera, still I e would-not think of attempting it. The Administration Intends to capture Santiago shortly, but the sea assault will be made by all of our battleships, new monitors and heavy cruisers, t ie it'ei being that it is folly to take chances of partial failure when with ships that are available and are not in the least needed elsewhere the sea attack can be made an assured triumphant success. The land attack will be made at the same time. The Americans will be aided by the in surgents, who are gathering in force near Santiago and are in daily, or rather nightly, communication with Schley.

Oils in Comm mil. j j News ill Washington. • a Special Dnpatch to The Six. | 1 Washington, Ji no 2.—Much surprise is expressed in the Navy Department that no communication from Commodore ; Schley had been received today. It was expected by the Department when the j first newspaper reports came of an en gugement between Commodore Schley's ; fleet and the fortifications of Santiago j that a report from the Commodore would I tie received immediately. As was stated j in these dispatches, the Department doubted there having been a general en gagement, but expected that Commodore Schley would report at once whatever had happened. Hourlv . since then dispatches have been looked for. The circumstantial newspaper stories of the engagement have convinced the officials that the attack occurred, and there is much speculation as to the reason for the silence oil Commodore Schley's part. The statement in this morning's news paper dispatches that Commodore Schley's fleet was drawn up for another engagement is regarded by some as af fording a hint as to the reason.. A theory advanced is that the attack is to be con tinued and that Commodore Schley waited to complete his operation before making his report to the Department, since the use of his dispatch boat to communicate the first incident would deprive him of facilities and delay in the transmission in tl e later and more im portant dispatches. The indications seem to point to a seri ous engagement which may already be taking place, Admiral Sampson being present, and the insurgents participating by a land attack on Santiago. These movements are all contrary to the general expectation of the Depart ment, and it is assumed that, if they are taking place,they are due to information in the possession of Sampson and Schley as to the movements of the insurgents, which render the attack by the fleet op p jrtune. _ at to he e of an in PHYSICIAN IN TROUBLE. A Former Wilmingtoiiian Committed to Jail in Philadelphia On a Serious Chance. to he a Dr. James C. Pickels, who several years ago uomliu ted a china store in this city, but now of No. 62(1 North Tenth street, Philadelphia, was on Wednesday committed to Moyamensing prison by Coroner Ashbridge to await the action of the grand jury on the verdict of the cor oner's jury holding him responsible for a criminal operation in the case of the prematurely born child of Elva Ander son, of Seventh and Wallace streets. The case was probably the most sen sational that has been tried in the cor oner's court for some time. The evidence at times was almost startling, and when between sobs and fainting spells Miss Anderson, who had to be carried to and from the eta. d, so wiak and prostrated was she, told her pitiful story, the scene was most dramatic. She positively identified Dr. Pickels as the man who had performed the criminal operation upon her. A fainting spell abruptly ended her testimony, and it was in her out of the court room and hurry her return to the hospital. The prisoner was then committed. The doctor has been before the public on a former occasion when suit was in stituted against him in a divorce suit and sued for $.>0,000 damages by a prom inent resident of Philadelphia for alien ating liia wife's affections. try to carry c is Notices Sent Out.
