Washington, July 13. Never since the breaking out of the war has there l.Pen a moment when the officials and people here have experienced such a period of suspense as during me nisi i Iwtnrs:. At the White House and the war de partment last night there was no rest but the night was spent in feverish aux in waitinir for some word from Shatter. Alo-er and Wilson were in Conference with "the President at the While House until after 1 o'clock when they left for .l.oi,. homes with no word having uecn received from Santiago from othcial sources and they said they had got no information during the night except what was furnished them by the Asso tinted Tross dispatches from Playa Del Este.

A special meeting of the Cabinet was ca'led at noon. Tne war conference is still continuing at 2:30, and important despatches "are being considered. 14 suspicions of yellow fever have broken out among the employees, tit the quartermaster department near Santi ago. The men are isolated, and the doctors expect to stamp out the fever before it makes great headway. It was learned later that all the des patches laid before both War Board and Cabinet relate to the appearance of suspicions of fever which it is feared might be the dread yellow jack, among the forces at Santiago. Confidence is expressed that they will be able to wipe it out. Blanco Says Fight.

London, July 13. A spciial from Madrid says that Blanco energetically protests against the idea of peace and says that the report that the government is resolved to negotiate with the United States in regard to peace measures lias had a deplorable effect among his tooops. A detachment of officers w aited on him to consider the proposition of peace. They say that the Cuban Volunteers va'iaully oppose peace and will not re commend any agreement under the circumstances. if they are disputed by Spain they will continue the;war themselves. The Spanish government continues the assurance to the effect that the min isters are not taking part in any nego tiations that may be proceeding. A correspondent. iys that peace will be impossible until a Spanish victory has occurred over the Americans or an other disaster forces them to it. Spain makes most ample concessions. demand made on Sunday and again re iterated his determination to resist. Notwithstanding this the American batteries did not open fire this morning and the renewal of the bombardment will be probably postponed until to morrow (Wednesday) when it is hoped that all of Gen. Randolph's batteries will he in position. The seige guns landed yesterday ,will also be brought up as soon as possible. Torrents of rain fell last night drown ing out the boys in the trenches and making the roads almost impassable This may delay the batteries and seige guns. The volunteers who are being hurried to the front are being lo cated along the right center in the posi tions which havo been occupied by Gen. Lawton's division, while the latter has moved forward extending our right until it almost touches the road by Chi menes over which Gen. Toral would have to retreat if he should tver be foolhardy enough to make the attempt, The Cubans under (Jen. Galixto Gar cia took Chimerics without opposition Monday night and have entrenchments on either side of the roads. The Amer icans arc now in a position to strike the enemy on the left, flanks and make the Spanish enlreui hinnts north of the city untenable. Gen. Toral, realizing the weakness of this Hank, has been busy during the ex istence of the truce in doubling back and fixing his guns in the direction fram which he is threatened. Most ot Gen. Randolph's guns will be located upon tho heights in the center of Gen. Lawlon;s new position, where they com mand the town. Yesterday afternoon the Capton and Dines succeeded in tear ing up the emplacements for a "palm" battery, as it is called, and m pumping shells into several block houses on Salients, but the shots directed at the Spaniards in the trenches did not havo much effect. Sharpuel was rapidly broken directly over the trenches, yet in five minutes tho trenches at every point of explosion would be alive with the enemy. They would watch for the flash of our guns and drop before the shells exploded. Our mortar fire was directed at the Spanish bull ring nnd tore up almost everything in the vicin ity. It is understood that the bull ring is being used as a barracks. Three large steamers lie in the har bor alongside the Philadelphia Iron company's wliaif and a small Spani.-h o-unboat is anchored at the head of the ...... .., . .... i... .i... bay.

The First Illinois volunteers and the District of Columbia volunteers are now located in the trenches that were occu pied last week by Gen. Shailer's bri-oade. Wnahintrtnn Jnlv 13. The reDort from Madrid that Senor Sagasta's ministry has resigned Is believed here to make the prospects for an early peace more favorable. It is thought probable that Senor Sagasta has stepped out of the ivnv tn mnlt rnnm for a cabinet which tvill negotiate for a cessation of hostili ties and that a dispatch irom raauim purporting to give demands made by the United States was inspired for the purpose of feeling the temper of the United States by seeing now sucn lenua would be considered here. There is no foundation, however, for :he report from Madrid that the United States has made demands rrom spain as conditions of peace, contemplating the cession of Cuba and Porto Rico, with a port in the Canaries, the pay ment of an indemnity of 48,000,000 and the retention of the Philippines as a guarantee of the payment of the indem nity. It was stated by a member of the cab inet Inrlnv thn t this government had made no propositions whatever, either ilrectly or indirectly, concerning pcaue, nor has any proposition been received trom Spain, either directly or indirectly. Why l'eaco Is I-ooked For. hflsls for the hope of the ad ministration that Spain will soon sue for peace is the conviction that all classes In Spain are rapidly being con vinced of the hopelessness of continuing fViB atmc-crle. This conviction is based on the tone of the Spanish papers and on information received, througn press dispatches from Madrid and other sources, of the sentiment of many lead ing men in Spain. The following dispatch rrom Maaria today is worthy of notice in this con nection: "The possibility of peace with the United States is being widely discussed In the newspapers and by the public. Tho pnnsprvntive Daners declare Spain is prepared to accept peace, provided It implies only the loss ot uuoa; oui, mey add, Spain would prtfor war a.l'outrance if the United States claims Porto Rico, v,o tn,iiim.ino islnnda or an immense indemnity, which would be impossible P,.. Cnoln tn nnv. "The Correspondence asserts that General Correa. the minister for war, does not disagree with the other cabi net ministers ko seriously as Is generally supposed, and In view of the gravity of the Cuban situation it is possible he will no longer oppose peace, provided the conditions are not too onerous. "The public connects the recent con ference between Duke Almodovar de Rio, the Spanish minister for foreign affairs, and the French embassador here, M. Patenotre, with the report that the French embassador at Washington, M. Cambon, has been instructed to as certain the lightest conditions upon which peace Is obtainable."

There has been no direct news from Sampson for several days. No news has been received from Shaf ter at noon and the anxiety is at the fever point among the ollieials at head quarters who are unable to account for the silence so long drawn out. It is feared the real facts in the case may be that Santiago has been entered by Shatter and that the Spaniards have made good their escape to the western hills. If that should bo the ease in all prob ability the American forces are hot on their track and consequently are farther from direct communication with Wash ington than they have been for the past week. A special meeting of the war depart ment takes place this noon to confer in rc"ard to the matter. UNDERTAKER and FUNERAL DIRECTOR, W. K.
