FIRED UPON AT SEA.
Spaniards Intercept the
SOLID SHOT WAS USED.
The Ensign Was Dipped, but
No Respect Paid to the
FULL EXPLANATION WANTED.
Captain Crossman Thinks He Was
Taken for a Revolutionary
New York, March 12. — The 'American
mail steamship Allianca, which was pro
ceeding from Colon to New York on the
Btb inst., signaled a barkentine-rigged
steamer under the land off Cape Mays!, at
the eastern edge of Cuba, which headed
directly toward her. At 7 o'clock, when
about two and a half miles distant, she
hoisted the Spanish flag, which was saluted
by hoisting the American ensign and dip
ping, which act of courtesy was not an
swered by the Spaniard.
At 7 :15 o'clock she fired a blank cartridge
to leeward, soon followed by another. The
American ensign was again hoisted and
dipped, but the course and speed of the
ship was not changed, no hostile demon
stration being anticipated.
The Allianca was more than six miles
off land. The Spanish man-of-war was not
satisfied, however, with even a double
salute, but proceeded to chase the Amer
ican to the fullest speed. Seeing the Alli
anca drawing away she yawed to bringing
her gun to the car and fired a solid shot,
which struck the water less than an eighth
of a mile away from the ship and directly
in line. This was followed by two more
solid shots, which, fortunately, did not
reach the mark, the second striking the
water in plain sight of the ship. At each
shot, however, the Spanish snip yawed to
get a range of the American ship before
firing on her, plainly showing her inten
tion to hit her if she could.
Captain Crossman of the Allianca,
knowing he was more than two leagues
from land and on the high seas, or
dered on full steam and gradually drew
out of range. The chase was kept up for
more than twenty-five miles, however.
This outrage has been reported to the
Secretary of State by Captain Crossman,
and no doubt a. prompt demand will be
made on the Spanish Government for an
explanation of the insult and the reason
required for the attempt made to stop an
American mail steamer on the high seas
in time of peace.
Captain Crossman was unable to name
the Spanish gunboat.
"We were six miles off the shore on the
high seas," he said, "and I do not think we
were responsible to the Cubans or anybody
else for being in those waters. The shots
were fired, doubtless, by some conceited
Spaniard who has an idea that he can stop
anything that floats. However, he was
disappointed, as it never occurred to me
for a moment to lay to. It is customary
for us to run within half a mile of the Cu
ban coast, and this time we were far ther
away from it than ever, and I really can
not tell why the shots were fired."
In answer to a question as to whether or
not the shots might have been fired by' the
gunboat with the idea that his boat be

captain said :

Colon Merchants Are Guarding
Their Property From In
Colon, March 12.— The recent reports of
repeated victories by the Colombian Gov
ernment troops over the revolutionists chal
lenge surprise when they, get back here
from distant parts in printed form. These
reports are misleading, because the revolu
tion is enly growing by reported victo
ries. It is still in progress and the Gov
ernment of Colombia is in sore straits for
men and money.
The Congress of Bogota has just passed a
bill for a forced loan. This measure pro-
vides that $1,000,000 a month shall be col
lected from the merchants throughout the
republic. The method of its collection, no
less than the loan itself, will cause bitter
dissatisfaction. It is believed that the offi
cers will apportion the amount to be col
lected from each merchant and individual,
and as the amounts to be collected are not
based entirely on the actual capital of each
merchant, but on his supposed capital, it
can be plainly seen how sympathy for the
revolutionists may be created.
■ The interests . of the country are para
lyzed, as the Government is conscripting
soldiers down to the age of 14 years and
those who are not in the army already or
.in the field with the revolutionists are
hiding in the mountains. The premium
on gold has risen to 142>_ per cent and
that with the increased cost of living,
owing to recent advances in the tariff and
the low price for labor prevailing, is
causing great distress. Merchants are ex
ceedingly apprehensive that their places of
business will be fired for pillage.
Three attempts were made on the night
of February 28 to burn Colon, and but for
the prompt discovery and suppression of
the fires the city would have been in ashes.
The merchants of Colon are doing night
patrol duty as most of the police force of
the city are now in the regular army.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 13, 1895.
A VISIT TO THE
It Is Made by the Mayor, Su
pervisors and Health
HOG RANCHES ON A CREEK.
The Question of the Contami
nation of Lake Merced .
In accordance, with the programme out
lined Monday the Supervisors made a trip
to the Colma watershed in order to see
whether the charges that the waters of
Lake Merced are contaminated by the
seepage from the surrounding cow and hog
ranches were true or not.
As will be remembered this proposition
of the impurity of the water in Lake Mer
ced first came up in the Board of Health
when Mayor Sutro presented a sample of
Spring Valley water which had been
analyzed by Professor Price, and which
showed that the liquid contents of Lake
Merced were impure.
Promptly at 9 o'clock four carriages and
Mayor Sutro's private double-seated carry
all were waiting outside the new City Hall
to convey the official investigators to the
scene of their labors such as they might
be. The sight of the vehicles was very
gratifying to the members of the board,
who had been given the impression by the
Mayor that the party would ride out to
Colma on the electric cars, and from that
point walk over the hills to Lake Merced,
All the members of the board were on
hand, except Supervisors Spreckels and
Scully. Drs. Regensburger and Bucknall
represented, the Board of Health. The
press was also well represented, and with
but little delay the procession started out
in the direction of the Mission hills, around
which the damp gray mists of the morning
were still grouped in quaint forms under
the influence of a March wind that was
inclined to be raw and disagreeable. The
sun skulked behind gray clouds and did
not appear to take any interest in the
actions of the Supervisors or any one else
in this vicinity.
The route taken was out the Almshouse
road, full in the teeth of the raw mists,
and then on to the Ocean House road. A
stop was made at John Daly's milk ranch,
about which some complaint had been
made, although it is two miles from Lake
Merced. Mr. - Daly was on hand to meet
the party, and tie was very anxious that
they should see everything about his place
in order to disprove the charges. He" said
he would defy any one to find a creek
around the ranch that was 100 yards long,
or that could in any way find its way into
the waters of Lake" Merced. The ground
all around is sandy, and all seepage sinks
into it. There was no chance for any
of the refuse from the place to get into
the lake. After looKing around and agree
ing with Mr. Daly under conditions as
they are now in the place, the procession
went on to Colma.
It was there that Mr. Fitzgerald and oth
ers who live in the vicinity charged that hog
ranches conduced to make filthy the creek
which runs down to Lake Merced. An in
vestigation showed that there was no doubt
about the existence of the hog ranches, or
the malodorous smells which they exuded.
There was the mud, and the hogs and the
smell, but then the question arose among
the officials as to whether the tainted
water reached Lake Merced or not. The
stream as seen yesterday was not a heavy
one and several Supervisors who walked
down it several hundred yards found that
the water was quite clear"
Mayor Sutro concluded that through
lack of rain the creek did not have much
of a flow at present, but that in winter
when the water flowed down the shed it
carried all the filth into Lake Merced.
Satisfied from the smell that the hpg
ranches were at the least a nuisance which
required abatement the Supervisors and
party passed on to one of the main causes
of complaint, Mrs. Ilallinan's ranch, on
the creek about a mile from the lake. She
keeps hogs, and it is held that the water.
flows directly from her place into the creek.
Mayor Sutro had been informed that the
swill and refuse from the city restaurants
were dumped on the banks of the creek for
the wallowing hogs to eat. The hogs were
found, and there were unmistakable evi
dences of filth in the creek, but the ques
tion in tne minds of the Supervisors was
whether it reached the lake or not; or, if
it did, whether the water was not purified
in its passage over the soft bed. . .
Mrs. Hallinan, who saw the visitors,
loudly asserted that some of her neighbors
did not like her and that they wanted to
eet her away from the place.
This was the last place visited. It was
getting late in the afternoon, and some of
the party wanted to return. There was no
time to "isit the lake, although some of
the Supervisors said they would like to see
how it looked and test its waters.
Before returning the party enjoyed a
"picnic" luncheon provided by Mayor
Sutro. Among the liquid refresments
furnished were several bottles of water
from Sutro Heights, which relieved the
Supervisors from the necessity of drinking
the waters of the creek.
■ In some respects the trip was unsatisfac
tory to the Supervisors, because the lake
itself was not visited. They wanted to
learn whether the waters of the creek ac
tually ran into it or not and contaminated
it as had been charged.
FIGHTING AT THE ALTAR.
Polish Catholics Use Weapons
to Gain Possession of
The Priest Resists and Wounds
a Number of the Invad
i Omaha, March -During the early
morning mass at St. Paul's Roman Catholic
Church to-day a party of Poles, formerly
members of the congregation, but ousted
by Bishop Scannell, entered the church
and attempted to take possession. Father
Karminski, who was saying mass, resisted
the attempt to capture the church, and one
of the invading party opened fire. Father
Karminski drew a revolver and fired into
the attacking party. After a long fusillade
the invaders withdrew, leaving their
wounded in the church.
Those wounded were: F. Dargaczewski,
shot through both legs; John Kozioka,
shot through the knee; Joseph Inda, one
of the priest's supporters, stabbed and
beaten over the head. The police were
summoned, and after a hard fight took
possession of the church.
Several people were arrested, among
them Father Karminski. They are now in
jail. * . , ,_
The trouble was the _, outgrowth of dis
sensions^ which have torn the church for
two years. Bishop Scannell removed the
priest in charge in spite of the protests of
the leading men of the congregation, and
the matter was carried into the courts. ' y
Three, weeks ago the District Court de
cided that the Bishop should , have posses
sion, and the trouble was supposed to be
ended; ;.• - '/%''-'>•' .: * ■•"-..'
| When v the officers arrived on - the scene
this morning they found an infuriated mob
surrounding the church building, and it
was necessary to fight their way in.. There
they found the priest in full possession,
backed by five altar-boys; and two wounded
men lying in the aisles.
More trouble is feared and another bat
talion of police has been' sent to the neigh
borhood of the church.
Although the attack was a surprise to
the priest, something of' the kind had been
expected for some time, and he had ar
ranged a signal to call his supporters
around him when it should occur. This
signal, was the ringing of the church bells.
The enemy had become aware of this fact,
and when the attack was made pulled
the ropes of the bell outside and tied them
to a fence. Priest Karminski discovered
this, and after closing the doors of the
church, he sent one of the boys into the
tower and soon the danger signal was peal
ing over the land. As soon as it was heard
his supporters began to rally, coming to
the side door of the church, and being ad
mitted within. On their way to the building
they were welcomed by the enemy with
clubs and rocks, but nothing daunted,
they arrived at the rallying place.
The enemy decided that this would have
to be stopped and made a rush for the
door. Joseph Inda, who, next to the
priest, is at the head of the congregation
which has possession of the church, was
stationed at the steps as a guard and
bravely he met the onslaught. But num
bers were too much for him and he was
downed. His head was battered with the
blows of clubs and rocks and he has a deep
and long gash on his forehead which was
made by a knife. His defense, however,
gave time to the attacked to close and lock
the doors of the church and the enemy
was again balked. Inda was carried to his
home. While his injuries are severe they
are not dangerous.
The parties making the attack claim to
have the right on their side. They say
that Judge Ambrose decided the property
belonged to the Roman Catholic church and
if so the title is vested in Bishop Scannell.
If this is the case then the Bishop has the
power to appoint a priest to carry on ser
The congregation is about evenly
divided, about eighty families being on
each side. The leader of the Scannell
division seems to be Joseph NowickL
Priest Karminski and Joseph Inda appear
to be at the head of the other faction. The
priest claims that he has been threatened
frequently by his enemies. They desire
to kill him, he says, and have held meetings
to lay plans for doing so, but the Bishop
has told them not to do this. He thinks
that the whole trouble was caused by
