  • March 15 – After two months of production, Ang Kalayaan finally comes out, bearing a false masthead stating that printing was done in Yokohama when it was actually done in Lavezares Street, Binondo, Manila. Marcelo H. del Pilar appears as editor but the one who put the broadsheet to bed is Emilio Jacinto who writes under his non-de-plume. Dimas-Ilaw, Aguedo del Rosario, and Apolinario de la Cruz subsidized types free of charge but the publisher, Dr. Pio Valenzuela, had to secure more, paying a peso for each type sold by four workforces of the Diario de Manila who stole them from the paper's production press.[1]


  • April 18 – More inspections involving Manila residents accused of suspected accomplices in plans to oust the Spanish government were conducted by the Spanish authorities, resulting into the arrests of Jose Albert, Salvador Vivencio del Rosario, and others.[1]
  • April 21 – More suspects were arrested by the Spanish authorities: Doroteo Jose; Cecilio Velarde, the parish priest of Quiapo; Felix Roxas; Padre Consunji; and many more.[1]
