Prospects. oT War With United bt&test Itoa- - itltter rVwllucs. LONDON. September 19. There is no use denying that the situation ia Spain is rapidly going from bad to worse. It is perhaps because it is getting so desperate that antagonism to the United States is growing stronger, and is to some extent encouraged by the attitude of the Government. Unfavorable construction is put upon the most trifling acts of General Woodford. There is even unfavorable comment upon the fact that he has decided to livs at a hotel for four months, on the pretext that he requires time to select a house to suit his family. This is interpreted to mean that he knows his instructions are likely to lead to a rupture, and he wants to be able to depart without difficulty. Public insults to America are becoming very common. The Imparcial, tha principal journal of Madrid, printed a leader Thursday in the form of an apocryphal letter from the Sultan of Morocco to President McKInley, begging him to communicate the secret of how he manages to escape the consequences of American outrages on Spain in Cuba, while he, the Sultan, is frequently compelled to, pay for outrages by the Riff pirates, MAT itETOIE WORK.

NO CLUE TO MURDERER Rode Off On Horse After Firing the Shot. No Witnesses to the Crlmo-N- o Motlvo Assigned for tho Deed. News was received yesterday morning of the murder of Dr. J. K. Smith of Koloa, in the doorway of his residence, at 10 o'clock Friday night Up to the time of the departure of the Mlkahala from Kauai ports late Satur day afternoon no trace of the murderer had been obtained. From letters received It appears that the deceased and his sister had been longer, then went to his own room. removed his coat and began writing a letter. He had nearly finished it when at a quarter to 10 a knock was heard at the front door. The doctor answered with a "Who's there?" but there was no response until a minute afterward, when Miss Smith heard some one at the door cough and the doctor leave his room to see what it was. She heard the blind open, a pistol shot.and the fall of a heavy body. Rushing to the door, she found her brother lying prone upon the floor with his hands pressed against his chest In a second he was dead. Directly the shot was fired she heard a horse galloping up the road. There may have been two, but her anxiety for her brother's condition at the time prevented her paying close attention to the details of anything else. The neighbors were Immediately called and the Sheriff and deputies notified, but owing to tho darkness and absence of any good trailers it was Impossible to get on the track of the fugitives. The bullet entered the body on the left side, passing through the lung and heart and lodging midway through the right lung. Around the bullet hole in the shirt there were powder marks, but the ploth was not burned. Accord ing to expert testimony in a recent murder case in California the murderer could not have been more than three feet away, and it la supposed he was standing close to the house to the left of the door. It is possible he had been waiting there for an opportune moment in which to do his deadly work, and this came after Misa Smith had retired to her room to sleep. He apparently took no chances on detection by the lady in the event of his not reaching Ms horse promptly after committing the deed, for that reason he waited for some minutes after her light had been extinguished, and, supposing her to be asleep, knocked on the door. That he is some one whose voice is familiar to the family is evident from the fact that when the doctor called. In response-to tbe knock, tbe man merely coughed to let him know be waa still there, Instead of giving any Intelligible reply. The method of killing is that of a white man. It certainly shows none of tho handiwork of a native. The cough at the door even eeems too deep for a native, even though tho act Itself may have been Inspired by a whlto man. One of the theories advanced yesterday was that the doctor may havo had tho enmity ot some ot the Asiatics on tho plantation and tho murder was tho result But this Is hardly probable. When a Chinaman or a Japancso wants to get even for a wrong, real or Imaginary, ho uses a cano knlfo or a bludgeon. So far as known, the deceased had no enemies on tho Island or anywhere else. Ho and his sister have used their private funds In tho maintenance ot the Kauai Industrial School, and In other ways havo dono much for the Hawallans. One rumor on the streets was that the murderer-wa- s a man, whoso wife, a leper, had been reported by Dr. Smith. Tho Government has a record ot all the firearms oa tho Island. The bullet taken from the body by Drs. Campbell and Watt was from a re revolver, and It Is the Intention ot the Sheriff ot Kauai to ascertain, It possible, the whereabouts of persons carrylnjr re revolvers on the night of the murder. With the complete records In the possession ot the Sheriff, it is possible the murderer may be discovered In this way. About a year ago the engagement of Dr. Smith to Miss Brewer, formerly principal ot the Punahou Preparatory School, was announced, and the doctor had but finished a residence, which they were to occupy after the wedding, which was to shortly occur. It Is not probable that anything will be heard until the return ot the Ke Au Hou. which left for Koloa yesterday with Attorney-Gener- al Smith, General Hartwell, Marshal Brown and Detective Kaapa as passengers.
