gave out the principle of the ne.utr.ili. 1

signed by the six. great powers and Tur

Snictly speaking their action doe nit
hind the powers that were not parlies
to the convention, lint as 11 uih is of any
impoitance except the United Slates,
and all have .distinctly acquiesced in
what was done, the pmoiicil result is
much the same as if the whole body of
civilised nations had fonnally exprjsicd
iheir adhesion to it.
The convention I'eclares that the
canal is to he open in time of war as
wull as in time of peace to al! ships,
whether- belligerent or neutial, but no
acts of hostH ty are to he committed
either in the canal itself or in ll.e sea to

The stay of tho belligerent vessels of

hours, and belligerents are not to em

the canals or its ports.

There is an active, energetic consul at

WARHtNaTON, May 14. Department
officials continue to be considerably
worried over a suspicion that France
is secretly aiding and abetting .the
enemy. The delay to a St. Pierre cable
gram from Captain Cotton giving the
information of the appearance of Ad

the Spaniards great advantage, enabling
them to get twenty-four hours Btart

Washington, May 14. A bulletin
says the state department has an official
report fro-n Curacoa that Spanish ves
sels have been sighted there. Curacia
is 50:) miles southwest of Martinique
and 700 miles southeast of Santia.ro de
Cuba. If ibis news is accurate it indi
cates tho Spanish fleet sailing away
from Sampson.
Washington, May 14. -Great anxiety
is expressed here for the Oregon, Dnffa
lo and Marietta, as the Spanish fleet is
from hist accounts headed southward,
and is over 003 mile- ahead of Sampson
and between him and tho thiee Ameri
can ships. The three vessels, which
left Ilahia some five days ago, should
now be off the northern coast of brazil,
and would p.ob.ibly meet the Spanish
