M.?Jamie Fernieres, who says he is
the first officer of the Spanish hospital
ship Alicante, was brought here this
morning e prisoner of war on board
the British prize steamer Twickenham,
captured by the cruiser St. Louis on
Conflicting stories ore told concern?
ing the Spaniard's presence on board
the Twickenham, und there Is strong
suspicion that lie is a more important
pr sonei than superficial circumstances
The Twickenham was captured at 3
o'clock In the morning of June 10, when
about ten miles off the south coasi of
Jamalen. The St. Louis.which took her.
of course without a show of resistance,
was the only ship of the American fleet
In or about these water* at the time.
The British steamer had been picked
up in West Indian waters about a
month ago and was warned to avoid
the blockade vessels. Recently It was
I. arned that she was at Martinique,
where the Spanish hospital ship Ali?
cante, under command of Captain An
Ionic. Clonts, lind been lying for some
time. There wns a report that the Al?

had been securing coal from the Twlck

Captain Goodrich, of the St. Louis,
could find no papers to Indicate to
whom the ship and cargo were con?
On June the United States consul
at St. Pierre. Martinique, wired to the
State Department at Washington that
the Twickenham's cargo of coal was
consigned to the Spanish consul in
that island, but that the local govern?
ment refused permission to llf* offi?
cial to land It. On the pame day. the
I Twickenham sailed for Jamaica and
I was picked up off the coast five days
Inter by the St. Louis. The captain of
tlio Twickenham professed complete
Ignorance concerning the ownership of
the cargo, and could produce nothing
tending to fix this point, lie said that
at Martinique lie was informed by a
man named Lebat that he (Lehnt) was
the ship's broker, but Captain Robin?
son added that Lebat had telegrams
relating to the Twickenham which he
did not show.
Captain Coodrlch put on board the
Twickenham a prize crew consisting
of Ensign It. F. Payne and live ma?
rines, and after reporting the capture
to the squadron at Santiago de Cuba,
he senl the British vessel here. En?

his story, through an interpreter, to a
representative of the Associated Press.
He said lie was going, by order of
Captain Genis, from Martinique to Ja?
maica, where he hoped to board a
steamer for the Pacilie coast in order
lo transact business with the agents
of the Spanish Trans-Atlantic Com?

MRS. WALLACE AND THE GLOVES
Made Quite a Difference to Her Who
Found Them?But Why?
Mr. and Mrs. Wallace have been mar?
ried five years. Up to last week Mr.
Wallace was of the opinion that he un?
derstood his wife pretty well. Now he
Is wondering whether he ever will
know anything about her.
Wednesday evening Mr. Wallace
found a pair of gloves. They were
pearly gray, and probably had not
been worn more than once. They look?
ed small and dainty, and Wallace, ar?
guing that they might fit his wife's
band, took them home and gave them
Mrs. Wallace looked critically at the
dainty gloves for a moment, then said,
"Where did you get them. Howard?"
Mr. Wallace Is truthful by nature.
Had he been otherwise what follows
would never have happened.
"I found them in the street car." he
said. "They seemed to be about your
size and 1 thought you might be able
to wear them."
She laid the gloves on the table, then
turning around till she faced him
squarely, she transfixed him with bolts
of lightning that darted from her
"Howard Wallace." she said bitterly,
"are you trying to drive me from you'.'
II you want me to go home to mother
why don't you say so right out like a
man. instead of torturing me with
your cruel hints?"
"Torturing? Want you to go?home
? to?mother?" repeated Wallace,
"That's what I said." she went on
with increased vehemence. "You'll
soon provoke me to, whether you want
me to or not, if you keep up this way
much longer. I thought you bad too
much respect for me. Howard, for me?
your wife?to offend me by such an
insult. I didn't think you were capa?
ble of such a despicable action."
"Wh?what have I done?" faltered
"Done?" she retorted. "What
haven't you done? Oh. to think that I
should have married such a narrow
minded, stingy man. If you wanted to
make me a present of gloves why didn't
you buy new ones, instead of coming
home with an old worn-out pair that
some other woman had thrown away?
You knew I needed gloves. You heard
me say so this morning, and instead
of bringing me something decent you
go poking around in street cars till
you find these?these?and then ex?
press your content for me by offering
them to me. Why, don't you know
that I'd no more put on a pair of gloves
that anybody else had worn than I'd
My to Egypt? I suppose you never
thought of the danger I'd be exposed to
in so doing.
"No," said Wallace, meekly. "I didn't.
They looked nice and I supposed you'd
be clad to have 'em."
"Clad," derisively. "He supposed I'd
he glad to have them'. These are not
lit for a beggar to wear. That's why
they had been thrown away: As I said
before, if you are not able and willing
to buy my gloves I'll go to mother,
who will provide me with all these
Illings without grumbling about it."
Mr. Wallace tried to defend his rep?
rehensible conduct still further, but his
wife flounced out of the room and re?
fused to listen.
The next evening Mr. and Mrs. Wal?
lace went to the theatre. They were
late in leaving the house after the play,
and the lobby was almost deserted
when they passed out. Mrs. Wallace
paused and looked about her. There
was a pair of gloves lying on the floor
near the entrance, and she stooped and
picked them up. They were gray and
showed signs of much usage.
"Well, if I am not in luck." she cried.
exultantly. "I don't know when I've '
found anything before. These are the
very things 1 want" I can have them
cleaned and they will be as good as
"I thought." said her husband, won
deringly, "that nothing could induce
you to wear gloves that had belonged
to anybody else. You threw those 1
gave you into the garbage box."
Mrs. Wallace regarded him disdain?
"Oh. well," she said, "that was dif?
It probably was. Mr. Wallace
couldn't see for the life of him where
the difference lay, but he supposed It
must be there.
