brush between some Spanish troops anil
a recennoitering party in steam cutters
occurred at daylight this morning in a
small cove west of Mono Castle. The
Massachusetts' steam cutter, in charge
of Lieutenant Harlow, entered the cove
to take soundings and reconnoitre.
When well inside the inlet a detachment
of Spanish infjintry opened fire upon the
cutter from a blockhouse. The lire was
vigorously returned by the marines in
ihe Massachusetts' boat, and also by
the marines who were in the New
York's cutter, which was in charge of
Naval Cadet Powell, and which had
followed in. The New York's cutter was
hit ten times, .and a marine in the cut
ter of the Massachusetts had the stock
of his rifie shattered, but by good luck
i no tine was Int.
The Texas opened fire with her six
pounder on the hillside, and the Vixen
steamed right into the cove and pepper
ed the blockhouse with her rapid tiring
guns. I Jvent ually the Spaniards re
treated to the woods, ami the two steam
cutters withdrew.

Madrid. June is. 1 m. There is
considerable comment here to-day over
a long conference which has just taken
place between 'the British Amba-ador
to Spain. Sir Henry Druinmoud-Wollf.
and the Spanish Minister of War. (Jen
eral Coirca.
The newspapers of this city to-day
publish the text of .a manifesto from th..
inhahitjtnts of Catalonia. of which
Barcelona is the capital in favor of
peace between Spain ;ind the I'nitcd
States.
The manifesto is signed by thirty-live
.associations jmd eighteen local news
papers. It says the present evils jire "due to
the existing regime Avhich is nothing bed
a government of disorder and neglect."
After recalling the fact tlmt the
Spanish Monarchs have lost possession
after possession, it says:
"Tin United States is guilty of un
justifiable aggression, but if the war is
prolonged. Spain Avill be completely
ruined. A painful amputation is a hundred-fold
preferable to ji terrible and
disastrous war. ami jiny transaction
eventually made Avill not be more honor
able .after the country is ruined, the
blood of her vjilued soldiers shed .and
starvation has ravaged ;i majority of the
workmen's homes."
The manifesto then depicts the griev
ous internal situation ami says:
"Spain :isks immediate peace, desp'jj
the opposition of those who desire the
utter destruction of the country in or
der to impose their domination upon its
ruin. The sooner peace is concluded the
more advantageous it Avill be. it is the
duty of oAeryhody to endeavor to force
tin government to obtain peace."
The document concludes liy predicting,
unless a speedy pejiee is secured, a com
plete internal collapse, wliich Avill en
guf economic prosperity and political or
ganizations and launch the country into
a state of anarchy or arbitrary despotism.

Pome, June IS. In the Chamber ot
Deputies to-day the Premier, the Mar
quis di ltudini, announced that the
Ministry, Avhich Avas formed on May
.'II. has resigned. Amidst considerable
excitement, the Marquis di ltudini sa.id
that after considering the parliamentary

the grave public questions, the Ministers
had placed their resignation in the
hands of the King ayIio reserved the
right of decision relative to their accept
ance, a remark which Avas greeted with
murmurs.
Continuing the Marquis said the Min
istry Avou'd remain in office for the
present in order to attend to routine
business and safeguard public order. He
then begged the Chamber to suspend its
sittings for tin present. Tin request
was approved after a stormy debate.
It is generally thought that the re
signation of the Ministry foreshadows

Avar council held at the White House to
day at which were present President
McKinlcy, Secretaries Alger and Long.
Ceneral Miles, Assistant Secretary
Meiklejohn, Admiral Sicard and Captain
Mahan. Of course there will lie some
slight mollifications mule neces.-ary by
the changes that have occurred since
the beginning of hostilities, but these,
after all, Avill not a fleet tin general plan.
of operations. Cencral Miles returned
from Florida Avith information respect
ing the condition of the troops, diilioul
ties to be expected in the progress of t!i
campaign, and needs in the matter of
transportation that a ill aid materially ni
the t oin.net of the next expedition.
The conference Avas entirely harmoni
ous. The only reason that the command
ing general did not visit the White liou-e
yesterday was because of ;i desire on
tin Prosdeiit's tart that his Avar council
lors should have the benefit of Ceiieril
Miles' recital of his observations at first
hand.
Tin stories that there has been fric
tion between Central Miles and Ids of
ficial superiors are pronounced to h ab
surd by all concerned and today's pro
ooedi'igs gave ample evidence of tin fac
that Ihe utmost harmony characterizes
the relations between the Chief Exccu
five and the military branch of the gov
eminent. There Avere. of course, sonn
differences of opinion among the poi
sons present at the Avar council, but
there has been no disposition in an.v
quarter to resist for an instant any eon
elusion Avhich has secured the approva
of the President.
The official declaration to the effec!
that tin campaign is to bo pushed wi'I
vigor does not necessarily mean an im
mediate attack upon Havana, although
su.ch advice has been tendered. It does
mean that the ery strongest efforts an
