public opinion in Manila. Most of the
officers wanted to steam out of the Har
bor and meet the approaching tluet but
Montejo refused. Concha says that the
Spanish fleet was in a disgraceful con
dition, tho engines wore broken, the
ships were leaking, and on some of
them not more than two of tho guns
cou'ul bd fired. On some of the others
only the decks were protected.

Strategy Board Superceded.
Ki-v West. Mav 20. The movement
of the American vessels under the three
squadron commanders is being taken as
a generally accepted fact, and that
Schley is in the vicinity of .Santiago is
believed to be true, while the report
that the squadron under Watson is
along tin; western and northern coasts
is now shrouded with only a slight uncertainty.
The composition of these three squad
rons has been changed but the names of
the vessels are not permitted to be
known. It is also accepted as a fact
that Schley is lobe permitted to work
out the problem of Santiago himself.
This arrangement is greeted wiih much
satisfaction from all sides, as it is the
general opinion that an experienced na
val officer in the held of action is better
suited to conduct his own movements
than a board of strategy in Washington
Dewey's victory is probably largely
due to the fact that he was cut loose
from anv communication with Washing
ton and was thus unhampered by any
such orders as Sumpson was troubled
with in Southern waters.

Subral Not The Spy
M Alilttl), May 26. Confirmation has
been obtained here in a despatch from
thi) island of Martinique of the depart
ure of the Spanish torpedo gunboat Ter
ror from Fort Du France. Lieutenant
Subral a former naval attache of the
Spanish legation at Washington is here,
therefore the statement that be is Jimincz
the spy who was arrested at Key West
is incorrect. The story was started by
some of the passengers who said they
recognized Subral in the person of the
spy. Further investigation of .Iiniinc7. s
case shows the importance of his capture
nml ii is believed he has a number of
nssociates who may be detected, A com
