W A S I N O N, March 8.—The
ish situation developed on phases
during the day it became
that the Spanish government had for
mally requested the recall of Consul
General Lee at his post at Havana, to
request the United States had

and gunboat Nashville, to which sug
gestion the Unite States had given a
like answer in the negative.
The first intimation of these steps
came in a brief and explicit cable dis
patch from Madrid. Prior to its re
ceipt, however, the authorities here
had been fully conversant with the
facts, although no intimation had been
allowed to get to the" public on either
Official Statement Given Out.
The disclosures from Madrid left no
further ground for reticence in Wash
ington and after a conference at the
White House between the president,
Assistant Secretary Da of the state
department and Secretary Long of the
navy department, the following au
thorized statement was handed to the
Associated Press by Judge Da as com
prising everything that was to be said
by the administration on the subject:
"The president will not consider the
recall of General Lee. has borne
himself throughout this crisis with
judgment, fidelity and courage, to the
president's entire satisfaction.
"As to the supplies for the relief of
the Cuban people all arrangements
have been made to carry a consignment
this week from West, by one of the
naval vessels, whichever' a be best
adapted and most available for the pur
pose, to Matanzas and Sagua."
President's Reply Was Prompt.
In responding to the request for Gen
eral Lee's recall the president does not
appear to have deemed the subject open
to such discussion as would require the
views of his cabinet associates, and
after a brief exchange between the
Whit House and the state department
the negative answer was dispatched to
Minister Woodford. One phase of .the
incident that tends to show the firm
stand taken by the administration is
the expedition it which the action
as accomplished. Such a matter or
dinarily is laid before the cabinet, the
views of all its members personally
given and the fullest opportunity
afforded for discussion. Bu in this
case the Associated Press bulletin fur
nished to some members of the cabinet
the first information they had that
General Lee's service was open to ques
tion. The grounds on which General
Lee's recall was asked are not officially
No Beaion for Change of Plana.
The suggestion of the Spanish gov
ernment that relief supplies should not
be sent in war vessels did not come
through Minister Woodford, as the
Madrid dispatches state, but as pre
sented by Senor Bosc to the state
department last Friday. Th re
sponses in both cases went direct to
Minister Woodford. I the protest
against the Montgomery and Nash
ville, Judge Da conferred it Secre
tary Long, in turn called in Cap
tain Crowninshield of the bureau of
navigation. There appears to be no
reason a change should be made
in the plan for sending these ships on
the relief mission and without attach
in grave'significance to the request of
the Spanish government, the answer
as made that the plans for the trip
were completed and that the stay of the
ships would be, brief and the _, most
tmcihc character. ^v!\?.vl
Lrts'a Sympathies With the Cubfcuagt*''
1 or seme time it was known that
General Lee's presence in Hanana was.
(Ustastefnl^lo t^ Spanish government,
bat it as supposed this had blown
over and the demand tat *aia recall
cabie somewhat in a ii re 6f a sur
prise. Th fact is also noted that Senor
Dupu de Lom is due in Spain at this
time. Hi enforced .retirement on a
demand by the Unite States is felt to
have awakened a counter sentiment at
Madrid which, finds expression against
Consul General Lee. There is little
doubt also that such advice as Senor
Dapuy.d Lom would give to the gov
ernmen or to the press" in public in
Madrid would not be conducive toward
the retention of General Lee. There is
little doubt, however, that the main
cause of Spain's action is the sym
pathy General Le has shown for the
Cuban sufferers. ,*,
Thinks Spain Has the Bight to Demand
N E W O K, March 8. —General Dan
iel E. Sickles, was minister of the
Unite States to Spain from 1869 to
1874, during which period occurred the
strained relations between that country
and the United States over the Vir
ginius affair, said that Spain's request
for the recall of Consul General Lee
as a serious move and likely to lead to
General Sickles continued: "It is
Spain's right to ask for General Lee's
recall. Spain would be justified in de
mandin the recall of Consul General
Lee on the ground that he is persona
non grata simply. President McKinley
is at liberty to refuse to recall General
Lee and in that case Spain would be
perfectly justified in handing him his
passports on the single ground that he
is persona non grata."
THE FERN WILL GO
Change in Relief Vessels Said
to Have Been Ordered.
REASON GIVEN TOR ACTION
Believed to Be the Result of a Sngges
tion From Naval Officers
at Key West.
E W E S Fla., March 8.—The
supplies forth starving Cubans will
not be taken on the cruisers Mont
gomery and Nashville. It is under
stood that the dispatch boat Fern will
perform the duty. The change of plan
as ordered from Washingto Friday
or Saturday. A high naval official
"The Fern is better suited for
such duties. I do not that the
change of the plans was brought about
by Spain's demand. Indeed, I am in
clined to think it is the result of a
suggestion from Ke West.
"I fully expect the Fern will be tak
in supplies from here by the end of
the week and you must remember that
though she is only a tender to the
fleet, she is still a vessel of the fleet and
of this navy. The survey boat Bache
will return as soon as possible to Ha
vana after her arrival here and will
relieve the Fern. Whe the Mont
gomery was at Matanzas investigating
the conditions there her officers were
most cordially received. I is strange
if Spain has made objection to the
proposed peaceful errand of the Nash
ville and Montgomery. But, however
that may be, it is far better that those
cruisers should not go to Cuba under
the present conditions."
CONSPIRACY IS CHARGED.
Thirteen Correnpondents Arrested and
Jailed at Havana.
A A N A March 8. —In addition to
Henri Laine, the American correspond
ent, Vicente Pardo Suarez, editor of
La Bepublica, and 11 others have been
arrested, making 13 in all. Eight are
in cell No 47 and five in cell No 46 at
Cabanas Fortress. Henri Laine will be
sent north on Wednesday. I is offi
cially stated, from American sources,
that two or more American correspond,
ents will be required to return to the
United States at the same time.
The prisoners are charged with con
spiracy. I all 18 are implicated.
Eleven, it is said, will be sent out of
the country and seven to the Isle of

Great Activity Continues at the league
PHILADELPHIA, March 8.— Great ac
tivity continues at League island navy
yard. Workme were busily engaged
upon the cruiser Minneapolis, the mon
itor Miantonomah and the ram Katah
din. I addition work was going on in
the mould loft and several forges were
in operation in the blacksmith shop.
The utmost reticence prevailed among
the officers, sailors and workmen at the
yard, and it was impossible to obtain
any official information as to the detail
of the work going on. It was evident,
however, that all work was being
pushed as rapidly as possible.
Mangrove at Havana. -"'%,'
A A N A March 8.—The Mangrove,
with the United States naval court of
inquiry on hoard, arrived here before
noon, and the board at once held a ses

concerning the work of the divers over
which he has supervision, and his ex
amination as continued after Vfche re-

Capture of Havana Considered
Comparatively Easy by
A A N A via Ke West, Fla., March
8.—As the conviction becomes settled
that the court of inquiry will decide
that there as a mine explosion under
the Maine, discussion among American
naval officers and civilians here is
prevalent as to the warlike measures
it is believed the United States
government will adopt in case the in
demnity by Spain is overruled. A ma
jority believe that American troops
will be landed at some point east of
Havana and the insurgents communi
cated with, that the Spanish soldiery*
will be defeated or captured in detail,
and that in the meantime a fleet of
United States vessels will blockade, if
not bombard, Havana.
Capture of- Havana Considered Easy.
N one seems to doubt that the re
duction of this city would be compara
tively easy. Four 12-inch guns—two
west and two east of the city—are the
ones that axe considered dangerous.
These are not likely to be well served,
while their emplacements are not mod
That some Spaniards are of opinion
that an attack on Havana will be made
is believed to be shown by the abnor
mal activity displayed on board the
Vizcaya. Th Associated Press corre
spondent has the best naval authority
for the statement that the Vizcaya is in
a constant state of readiness 'for emer
gencies and that picket boats are on
the alert day and night inside the har
bor and outside the harbor at night."!
Work of Spanish Divers.
The conduct of the Spanish divers
are investigating the wreck of the
Maine is a mystery. Thus far they
have not been down five hours in the
aggregate and they show no disposition
to make a thorough inquiry.
It is impossible to learn the truth
fully regarding the purpose of the Span
ish court of inquiry, but it is generally
believed that the divers were sent down
for form's sake only and that a report
will be made in accordance with in
structions from Madrid. It may be
that the Spanish divers have discov
ered that the whole port side of the
Maine forward is gone and, having so
reported, further examination is deemed
unnecessary. Th work of our
divers henceforward is bound to be
slow, owing to the ponderous weights
to be moved, and the safety clamps,
nuts and rivets that must be cut.
Proctor Sees Mnch Suffering.
Senator Proctor is likely to make a
speech in the senate on his return that
Will have great weight in determining
the future policy of the United States.
He is much affected by the suffering
that he found in Matanzas and highly
indignant at at he calls the "inhu
manity of the course pursued."
During a visit to Artemisa, this prov
ince, he saw thousands of reconcentra
dos, refused to beg, though they
are starving. They were evidently of
a class accustomed to make their living
and unwilling to become paupers.
saw thousands of the best tobacco and
banana lands in the world reduced to
waste, it trochas and garrisons at
every village and crossroads. His
driver, pointing to the mountains 15
miles away, said: "There are plenty
of insurgent camps there that the Span
ish have never discovered."
GIVEN HEARTY WELCOME.
Cruiser Almirante Oquendo Has Arrived
at Havana Harbor.
A A N A March 8.—The Spanish
first class cruiser Almirante Oquendo
arrived in Havana harbor at 8:45 a. m.
from Spain. She received a hearty
welcome from the ferry boats and tugs,
on board of which were the civil and
military authorities and different so*
cieties which had been waiting forth
ship's arrival. Th docks were crowded
with sightseers, rockets were sent up,
and flags and other decorations were
displayed from the velsels in port, the
public buildings and the palace. The
Almiranto Oquendo made a fine ap
pearance as she returned the salute
from Fort Cabanas and then saluted
the fort and admiral.
