Has Lost Nono of the Advantage Gained Can Take Manila Vhen Desired--The Land Forces to Go to the Island as Speedily as Possible. WASIH'OTO,May15. The dispatches from Hong Kong brought good news from Admiral Dewey, particularly to Secretary Long and the naval oiIieers wlto are watching t, he admirM's move- ments with interest. While no appre- hension existed as to his security, nev- ertheless reassurance of safety is always pleasant. The telegrams indicate that Dewey has lost none of his prestige gained ia Iris memorable fight of two weeks ago, and that. while he refrains from takin the city of Manila, he has it practically at his mercy. The admiral expresses the belief that the rebels are hemming the city in by land, but the fact that he says explicitly that they have made no demonstration seems to disprove the story published that they have entered Munila and be- gun a career of bloodshed. The best evidence of the effectiveness of the blockade maintained by Dewey and also of the work of the insurgents m surrounding the city, is shown in the statements in the dispatch that pro- visions are scarce in the city of Manila, which seems to indicate to Admiral Dewey an early surrender by the Span- ish. Another published report seems also to be refuted by the admiral's advice, to the effect that the rebels had raided Manila where the Spanish naval station was located, and where, presumably, large supplies of arms and ammunition were kept. If the rebels have been supplying themsel yes with arms it must have been with the admiral's consent, as his dispatch Ls originally dated from Cavite, indicating that he is still in poss;ession. The greatest satisfaction prevails here over the good work being done and the effectiveness of the blockade being maintained by him. The dis- patch as given out by Secretary Long is as follows: "CAVITE, :May 13.--(via lions Kong, May 15.) Maittaining strict blockade. Reason to believe that the rebels are hemming in the city by land, but have made no demonstration. "Scarcity of provisions in Manila. THE HOSTILH FLEETS, Spaniards Put Out From Ca-reao--Saml son and Schley Moving to Inter- cept Them. WASHINGTON, May 15.--How to "cap- ture or destroy" the Spanish fleet now in the Caribbean Sea is the great war question of the hour. Official information was received by the state department this morning from Consul Smith, at Curacao, that the Spauish squadron intended to leave there today, and it is the belief of the naval war board that it is now or soon will be on its way to the point where its colliers are lying. Our fighting and flying squadrons are in quest of the enemy. Improving every moment of the time given it, as a result of the present loca- tion of the Spanish men-of-war, the naval war board was in session today, and when it adjourned at a late hour the members were confident that they had taken every precaution that their naval experience and best judgment dictated to defend their country and bring early defeat to the enemy's force. It developed today that, instead of two colliers, as has been believed, there were four of these vessels, carrying about 8,000 tons of coal, sufficient to re- coal ever)" ship of tie Spanish squadron. It is believed by members o4 the board that the arrival of the Spanish squadron at Cracoa was due to the ne- cessity of communicating with the col- liers, in order to appoint a rendezvous alon the Venezuelan coast, where coal can be taken aboard without interrup- tion from American ships or a heavy sea. Official advices are to the effect that seven Spanish men-of-war are off Car- acoa. This number is somewhat sur- prising, in view of tlm fact that the fleet, when it left Cape Verde, consisted of seven ships, and one of this number, the Terror, is at Fort de France, Mar- tinique. It is believed in naval circles that the place of the Terror lms been taken by one of the small gun-vessels which fled from Cuba or Porto Rican waters upon the approach of the Amer- ican squadron. There is no reason to believe that the plan determined upon by the war board to place Rear Admiral Sampson's squadron to the south of the Haytien coast, in the immediate vicinity of the Windward Passage, has been changed. The department has been' advised that Rear Admiral Sampson. acting m ac- cordance with instructions sent him last night by the war board, is making all speed to the western end of tLayti, Probable that the Spanish governor where he will proceed, it is understood, will be obliged o surrender soon.

Itugnlng Troops Over The officials are making utl possible haste to rush troops to supplement Ad- miral Dewey's forces, so that if the Spanish government does am'render the former will not bc dependent upon the small nnmber of marines, which he can illy spare, but will have the aid of sol- diers in holding his position and main- raining order. It is confidently hoped here that the City of Pckiu. chartered will be in close cable communication with the department. Commodore Schley's command is well on its way to Cuba. The naval depart- ment sent a communication to Commo- dore Schley off Charleston. that the Spanish fleet was at Caracoa, and hc was ordered to hasten with all dispateh to Cuban water, from which his future movements will be directed by the board. Secretary Lonff's belief is this: The enemy, depending upon superior speed, will make every effort to cut out isolated American ships and destroy them. run- ning into Sp:mish harbors to take on as a transport vessel, will be able to board supplies. As soon as these snp- clear from San Francisco in a very plies are received the Spanish admiral short time, to be followed in rapid suc- will leave the harbors without delay cession by the other three ships en- and continue his policy of attacking an gaffed for a siu, ilar purpose. The Pekin can carry 1.000 men. which, with the marines aboard the Charleston. just about to sail, will be of considerable assistance to the admiral, but far from the number which he will need. The total nnmber of men to be sent will ag- gregate probably 12,000, as Maj.-Gen. Wesley Merritt, who is to command the expedition and subsequently to be made military governor, regards that as the least with which he can maintain order in a city like Manila, made up of msny discordant elemeuts. Over teu regiments of infantry and four battcr- es of artillery from the volunteers have been ordered to concentrate at San Francisco. and t lie regulars now in the extreme West will also be sent there. It is the purpose now to send a force of 15.000 to the island. In order to make np the requisite nmnber it is the intention of tire army ofiiciais to send, as a part of the expedition, at least three regiments of seasoned regular troops. Gen. Corbin said tonight the regular troops probably would be sent from tire forces encamped at Tampa, as they are the mos available cow. It is not regarded as desiralflc o remove such regular troops as have been left in the Indian country. The fear is en- talnedtbat if those troops should be sent away from their present posts some of the unruly Indians might take advantage of their absence to commit outrages and depredatious upon the white settlements. For thatreason the regular troops selected for the Philip- pines expedition will be taken from the forces mobilized on the Atlautic coast. It was announced definitely tonight that the transport ship City of Pekin, now a, San Francisco. wofld sail for Manilatonigltt or tomorrow with about a regiment and a half of the volunteers already selected for the expedition, Other forces destined for Manila will be hurried to San Francisco as rapidly as possible. SF.qNIAIDS TURN ED ADItIleT. Their Fl,et Sent Awuy From Friendly Caracao. WII,LEbtSTED CARACAO, [a y 15.--The Spanish cruisers Vizeaya and Maria Teresa left this port at 6 o'clock this evening. Their destination is unknown. The four other Spanish warships which were off the harbor disappeared about noon, but this evening one of the tor- inferior force. It can be stated that the naval war board is acting in line witlt tlns idea. When the Spanish squadron has coaled it is thought it will proceed to sornc port on the southern coast of Cuba.

Naval War Bo'ard Couvlnced the Hostile Squadron Cannot Now lscape an Fgagement SYlth Sampson. VASIIINGTo_N', May 16.--Spain's fleet in the Caribbean Sea is to be met by a squadron consisting of the armor-clads of the United States in North Atlantic waters. This seems to be the intention to- night of the naval war board, and preparatious arc being made to effect the junction of Rear Admiral Samp- son's and the flying squadron, under the command of Counnodore Schley, with all possible dispatch. If neces- sary, Commodore Schley, accordin to one o:icial with whom I talked today, will join Rear Admiral Sampson on the soutlt coast of Cuba, in order that the southwestern section of the American blockading squadron may be protected, and to place the American force in a strategic position to attack the Spanish fleet at whatever point it may appear. It is not necessary, r:or would it be good policy, to attach the lnofitors to the combined fleet, and the probabili- ties are tlmt these vessels will be sta- tioned in front of lIavana, or at south- ern ports, for their protection in case the Spanish squadron should attempt to bombard a coast city. With such a squadron as the officials contemplated forming, the enemy*s fleet, if met in battle, will, it is confi- dently believed, be totally crushed. Sttnpson's Crushing Squadron. ReaR. Admiral Sampson will have un- der his command, it is expected, the battleships Iowa, Indiana and Massa- chusetts, second-class battleship Texas, and armored cruisers Brooklyn and New York. IIandieapped, as Admiral Sampson now is. by the Monitors--the speed of these are not more than eight or nine knots an hour, for the reason that the Seer's speed is the speed of the slowest vessel--the Terror and Amphi- trite are being towed, besides endeavor- inff to hasten their voyage by proceed- ing under their own steam With no monRtors in hls fleet, Rear Admiral Sampson will be able to steam at the rate of twelve knots an bout and keep his squadron well together, and under forced draught may be able to reach iifteen nts. The New York aud Brooklyn, with the auxiliary stcatncrs and torpedo boats to bc attached to his" force, will be able to speed at such a rate as to be able to overhaul the Spanish armored cruisers and hold thc:n engaged until the Texas. followed by the heavier ships of the line, come to hcir support. The flying squadron is now well on its way to Cuban waters, and hould reach them. officials state, by tomof row afternoon. Its collier, the Sterl- ing, is trailing along behind, and the vessels will coal either from her or at Key West. Rear Admiral Sampson has colliers with him aml can eol his ship from them. but should hc change his plan of proceeding to Cienfuegos nnd come to Key West, there will be a plentiful coal supply for his ves:e]s there, and he can coal as rapidly as he may desire. :But whatever is the plan of the ar boar(l, it believes it wilt have ample time to perfect is preparations to en- compass the destruction of the Spanish fleet. A chart of distance which that body hus studied shows that Htdrc can be a junction of the American fleeis without interference on the part of the ;paniards. A Chart Study. From Caracao to Cieufuegos is 1.000 miles, and if that point be Rear Ad- miral Sampson's destination, he will reach it about the same tinte the Span- ish squadron armves there, provided it sailed yesterday from Caracao for that port. If the Spanish fleet is coming, as is believed, then the operations of the board can be completed without undue haste, and the combined armor-clad squadron can be stationed at the str,.t- egic position to be selected, from which it will strike in any direction that the enemy may make his appearance. An important feature of the board's plan of campaign is the scouts which have been thrown ou in all directions, but particularly at the several passages leading out of the Caribbean Sea. Iris proposed to keep these scouts ou the lookout for information and in constant communication with the American fleet, so that tltey can forward to Rear Ad- miral Sampson. as rapidly as possible, anythin they may learn regarding the whereabouts of the enemy's men-of- war. An important reason, in the eyes of naval experts, why monitors should be placed before the city of IIavana, or the cruiser Newark shoul4 be hurtle to that point, was tire ruise execute yesterday in accordance with Capt.- Gen. Blanco's order by the cruiser Conde dc Venedita and the 'unboat Neueva Espana, designed to draw the American vessels within the radius of fire of the shore batteries. If the commandin officer had been plucky, the experts at the department sry, he could have raised the blockade in front of the city of Itavana hy de- stroying the small vessels cruising at that point. With the Terror and the Amphitrite off tim city, there would be no dano'er of Spanish vessels again try- ing the performance of yesterday. The Wisdom of Silence.
