Washington, May 31���The significant
[statement wss made by a cabinet officer,
letter the regular Tuesday meeting ofthe
[cabinet today, that no news bad been re-
loefred ainoe Monday from Schley direct-
|ly, and thst it *as now believed tbat
nothing would be heard for two or three
fdays st least   It was plainly anticipated
owever.io some quarters that he might

ftjig-rt and destroy or capture tbe Spanish
With the assistance of a single regi-
ant of regular United States troops,
irWoh it if believed even now to be on
Ithe way to his support, tbe officials are
onfldent that tbe fleet ean reduce tbe
iforts at the entrance to Santiago harbor
id make untenable the position of . the
lition of the Spanish ships within. Of
, this plan is based upon the theory
at Cervera will not attempt to make bis
ape|by a desperate sortie at night.
This movement of Schley's is tinques-
aonably in ptirsnance of the president's
olicy to send a helping hand to the
Starving Beooncentrados. The Spanish
tauadron might be kept within Santiago
larbor until tbe end 0? tbe war without
endangering an American life, and because of its distance and isolation from
lavana, Santiago has little to attract a
iitary-"attack, moreover is in the very
Jdst|of an insurgent section of the island.
Che town affords a splendid base for the
itribntion of supplies to the famiUeslot
modifies her original proclamation of
April 23, so as to make tbe rule relative
to supplying provisions, subsistence and
ooal to belligerent ships consorm closely
to the very severe English rules on tbe
subject. Tbe Japanese proclamation is
rather remarkable in the great exactness
with which it prescribes'the rules that
are to govern Japanese subjects in tbeir
dealings with the belligerents, and the
treatment that will be accorded belligerent ships.
' After a conference today the naval
-bureau chiefs, presumably with tbe
knowledge" ot the constructive ability of
American shipyards' capability of undertaking this work, resolved to reduce the
time of the building of the newahips to a
maximum of 82 months.
���The navy department bought another
yacht today, tbe'Enquirer, belonging to
W. J. Connors, of tbe Buffalo Courier at
New York for use in the auxiliary fleet by
whioh the Mosquito fleet will be designated in aooordance with tbe recently enacted aot on the subject. Other purchases are in prospect, but the formal
selection ot the dozen vessels tp be purchased trom the eligible list of over 100
supplied by the examining board has not
been made.
The torpedo boat Rowan built at
Beattie by Moran Bros., has now been

insurgents and to the Reconoentrados,
who still drag out a miserable existence
in the interior. Already, the president
has begun to prepare, to help them
people Commissary General of tbe army
haB'prepared an estimate of $1,000,000 for
tbe purchase of sufficient supplies to
feed 160,000 reconcentrados for sis
months. For tbe time beingit is felt
tbat the real field of action is remerred
rrom Washington, and is centred witb
tbe troops now advancing under ouletf
from here. The time of preparation bat
gone by, and it remains only for the
preparations to be carried into actual
effect. A leading naval official pointed
to bis desk wbiob was clear of papers
and documents snd remarked tbat all
tbe preparatory details were now well
along, and tbat so far ss the authorities
here are concerned tbey bad only lo wait
for tbe execution.
Tbere will continue to be much routine
detail in the maintenance of tbe general
military and naval force, but this is now io
well established channels. The more
vital features of tbe campaign itself bare
been fully matured.
To a certain extent tbe military and
naval operations will be directed Iron
Washington, and yet witb General Miles
at tbe front, and Admiral Sampson and
Commodore Sobiey in Cuban waters,
tbey will bave most to do witb tbe time
and circumstances of tbe attack. Tbe
commanders, military and naval, bave
been given wide latitude, as tbe authorities fully appreciate tbat a battle cannot
be fought in advance on paper.
All that bas been attempted is, to outline the campaign and make the fullest
provision for adequate toroes, ample supplies and the fullest co-operatio�� between
the navy and army in tbe successful
execution of the plans.
The real blows are for the commanders
to strike, and in the execution of this
part of the programme the authorities
here can take little part. It is for this
reason that they regard themselves now
rather as spectators of what is about to
occur. Tbe consular reports issued today contain some additional declarations
of neutrality, this time from Brazil, Japan
British Guinea, St. Lomia and Gibraltar.
It is noticeable tbat both Brazil and
Japan go out of the way of the usual formal preamble to express regret at the
outbreak of hostilities between the
United States  and   Spain.     Bermuda

This is expedited practically to complete

ot between ��40,000,0 and f 80,000,000 to
be submitted, immediately to ��over tbe
expenses of tbe-volunteers under tbe
president's seoond call.

The Appraisement of Captured Vessels
Going on at Key West.
Key West, May 31���The appraisement
of the prize ship Pedro which has been
formally seized by tbe government was
made this afternoon by tbe naval board
of appraisement, appointed by the secretary of the navy. Her value was plaoed
The Pedro wss 0 aptured by the flagship New York off Havana, the first day
of the blockade. She was first sighted
by the Mayflower which informed the
flagship, whereupon the latter put off
aud captured ber.
The prize money Will be divided between tbe two. ships. Although tbe
question is yet to he decided whether
the other ships of the blockading squadron were in sight when the capture was
made. If tbey were, then all will come
in for a share of the prize. ,
Cape Haytien, Hay ti, May 31, 5.15
p.m.���Advices just reoeived here from
Havana say that since two o'clock this,
afternoon, the Amerioan fleet, at Santiago de Cuba bas been cannonading the
batteries at Moro castle, La Z oapa and
Punta Gorda. . At the same-time,- it is
added, the Amerioan ships havefeetn engaged with tbe Spanish rbips. The fir*

to the terms of the bond entered into between the oity nud tbe Electric Light Co,
last fall, it was agreed that the price

the price, on the basis just given,
amounted to about' $85,000, and about
$2000 hive sineC- beea laid out in improvements.
