Winnipeg. Man.. Oct. 2L It is learned
that a hitch has occurred in the con

delegates from Manitoba had agreed
to allow a half-hour a day in each
school for the teaching of religion by
the Koman Catholics, the belief be
ing that this concession would settle
It might have settled it as fat- as
the Koman Catholics were concerned,
but when the Protestant leaders here
heard of it they raised a big row. Such
. concession they declared to be a
iolation of the national school prin
iples. So the Manitoba premier. Green-
way, had to withdraw from this agree
ment, and now, as far as can be
learned, no other scheme can be de
vised, and the settlement Is as far off

Washington. Oct. 21. It is stated by
officials of the covernfnent that the
reports coming from New Orleans as
to an exciting controversy at Havana
between General Fits Hugh le. Unit
ed States consul general, and General
Weyler over the attempted apprehen
sion of a Mexican named Femandes
on board of the American shin Vlgi-
lancia. give a significance and Im
portance to the event not warranted
by the farts. If there was any ap
prehension that v.ar would result th-.t
feeling must have been confined -n-tirely
to Havana, for the law on tbe
subject is too clear and its applica
tion lias been so firmly established by
precedent that the o3k-lals here were
In no doult as to tho outcome. Con
sul General Lee has not Informed the)
state department of the -affair, and
the fact that he did not deem It worthy
ot the expense of cabling, nut will
treat it only in the routine way through
mail reports, is evidence of the im
portance be accorded to the incident.
Sensation Made Out ot Whole Cloth. '
The Spanish authorities received Ha
vana advices fully explaining the case.
but these advices were ef an entirely
pacific character and treated the mat
ter as an incident which had. been
satisfactorily adjusted between Gen
eral Weyler and Consul General Ie
without any breach of their friendly
relations. The facts as reported are
substantially these: General Veyler or
dered the arrest of - Fernandez as a
suspect, not knowing at the time of
the issuance of the order that he was
on board an American ship. Later.
General Lee notified the Spanish au
thorities that the Vigilancia was an
American ship, which, under our treaty
rights, had an immunity from search
and seizure for suspects in transit to
other ports. General Weyler promptly
acceded to the position taken by Gen
eral Lee and the affair ended. No pro
tests or claims were submitted to
Washington by either side. It Is said
positively that the report that General
Weyler ever contemplated firing on the
Vigilancia. or trained the guns of Morro
Castle on the ship, are incorrect.
L'ncto-ftam'a doctrine In tho Caae.
The" doctrine maintained by the Vnit
ed States in cases like that of Fer
nandez is that any foreign ship not a
national vessel or man -of-war entering
port subjects herself to the local
laws of the place. Consequently. If
there should he on board a fugitive
from justice be can be reclaimed by
the local officers, provided it Is done
strict'y according to due process of
law. It is in just this proviso that
Fernandez found safety, and in this
his case is a parallel to that of the
American merchant. Samuel Tolon.who
was taken off an American steamer
at Havana, but afterwrad was released
by the Spanish officials upon Consul
General l.ce's demand. In Tolon'sci
the Spaniards failed to follow due pro
cess of law, but arrested the man un
der militaiy process, and It supposed
from the .press reports that this was
attempted in Fernandez's case.
Whore Weyler IMScrs with fa,"
Captain General Weyler has all alonit
maintained that the operations of civil
law were frequently suspended In Cuba
during the progress of the rebellion,
and that martial law reigned supreme
I'nder this construction he arrested
Tolon and doubtless attempted to ar
rest Fernandez. But the I'nited States
has taken -the contrary position, and
in this has been sustained by the su
perior authorities at Madrid, who,
yond question, foresaw that If they
supported Weyler's contention It would
amount to such an admission of the
existence of a state of actual war aa
would not permit of the further de
lay of recognition by foreign powers
and perhaps even the graver step of
formal recognition of the Independence
of the Insurgents.
NO CHANGE IX OCR FOLIC!.
Some Facto That Dispone of a Whole Lot
. Washington. Oct. 2L It can be
stated on good authority that there
has been no change in the declared
policy of the government with respect
to Cuba; nor is any contemplated. As
is well known the sympathies of the
administration, as individuals. In
large measure are with the insurgents,
but if they gain their independence it
will be without any intervention other
than amicable on the part of Cleve
land. From the inception of the pres
ent difficulties In Cuba tbe administra
tion has used -all diligence in prevent
ing the fitting out in this country of
hostile expeditions against the Span
IsH authority in Cuba, and this vigil
ance will be continued to the end.
Tbe government has taken this
course for the purpose of showing to
the world that international law Is hld
sacred in the I'nited States, and also
fr the purpose of making it impossible
for Spain successfully to prosecute any
claims against the Lnited States for
damages growing out of filibustering
expeditions, as might be the case were
the officials less alert in preventing
such expeditions and in prosecuting of
fenders. It can be stated also, that
the sending of the revenue cutter Win'
dom to sea with sealed orders has no
speola significance whatever, beyond

agents the movements of the revenue

that the officials have determined to

issuing sealed orders to the captains
