Washington, July 14. The navy de partment has received from Admiral Dewey the following dispatch: "Aguinaldo Informs me his troops have taken all of Subtc bay except Isla Grande, which he was prevented from taking by the German man-of-war Irene. On July 7 the Raleigh and Concord went there; they took the Island and about 1.30U men. with aims and ammunition. No resistance. The Irene retired from the bay on their arrival. "I shall send the lloston to Cape Kngano about July 16 to second army detachment. It is not practicable to send to Guam. No transport vessel available. "(Signed) DEWEY." Turning to the far east it was re freshing to receive good news again from Dewey. In fact It is beginning to be remarked that that officer Is usually able to make felicitious re ports. The administration is wry much pleased with the readiness shown by the admiral in meeting the grave Issue presented to him at Subic bay and just reported at he did. Naval officers, too, were not a little gratified at the speedy retirement of the German cruiser Irene nfter the appearance of the Raleigh nnd Con cord. A comparison of the ships shows that the Irene wns much the, superior to either of the two American vessels, nnd in tonnage was nlmost as large ns the Releigh nnd Concord together. From this it is inferred that the retire ment of the Irene was from motives of general policy, rather than from any disposition to try conclusions with the two American ships. In official quarters here there ap pears to be no disposition to look upon the action of the Irene as a menace which will require explanation. It wus thought at first that this first PEACE PROPOSALS. A Washington journal Telia of the Efforts of Diplomats to llffect an r.udluir of War. Washington, July 14. The Star claims to be in a position to state au thoritatively that an active exchange of views occurred on Monday and Tues day between the diplomats who are endeavoring to arrive at a peace un derstanding between the United States nnd Spain. It nlso understands that the Spanish government is ready to agree to evacuate Cuba If her soldiers are allowed to depart in n mnnner nc cep table to an army which has not been defeated, and if the United States Is ready to assume the Cuban debt. The greatest difficulty Is with the question of a war indemnity, but a solution of this moy perhaps be found in a proposal from n syndicate of American nnd Eng lish bankers to repay the United States Its war expenses in 20 annuities, taking In return the tobacco monopoly nnd the railway concessions in Cuba and the Philippine islands. It is rumored that if Spain will surrender Santingo with out further bloodshed. President Me Kinley, in order to facilitate peace, may nbandon the attock on Puerto Pico. If the pending peace negotia tions succeed the queen regent will ap point n Moret cabinet to sign the nr tlcles of peace.

Thus far, however, there is no disposition to make such inquiry, or to attach serious import to the incident. New York, July 14. A special copy right cable from Manila, July 10, to the New York Journal, says: Admiral Dewey early on July 7 dis patched the Raleigh and Concord to take Grande island in Subic bay and capture the garrison. The cruisers shelled the principal ports on the island, destroying the earthworks nnd other fortifications, nnd laying the torpedo station in ruins. They then sent out ft launch with a message demanding surrender. There was no response, nnd the Raleigh finally sent a. six-inch shell through the commodore's house. The white ling was instantly run up on the ruins of the earthworks. A landing party demanded ubsolute surrender. The Spanish colonel, Rio, realizing his hopeless position, made submis sion and gave up his sword. The 500 men comprising the gar rison were made prisoners nnd their rifles were token from them. The victory givea tho Americans control of Subic bay. Admiral Dewey's possession of Subic bay defeats Germany's supposed plans to Interfere In the Philippines. The insurgents have captured the valuable merchant coast steamer named Phillplnas. The native crew killed the officers of the ship before her capture. Although the attitude of the Ger mans Is still Irrltotliig.Adinlral Dewey is mnnaglng them with great diplo macy, lie does not expect any trouble with them. The blockade will hereafter be more rigid.
