CASE OF DR. RUIZ
As Stated by Gen. Lee and the

Consul General Says the Prisoner Was
Kept in n Black Hole and 31 ordered
fepanish Official Keport That His Celt
Was a Large, Comfortable Room, and
That He Committed Suicide Thorough
Inquiry To Be Made.
-Washington, March 3. The president
yesterday sent to the senate a report
made by Secretary Olneyon the resolu
tion requesting the correspondence In
the case of Dr. Ricardo Ruiz. The re.
port suggests the inadvlsabllity of sup.
plying the correspondence at this time,
which suggestion the president indorses,
saying that it would be "incompatible
with the public interest to do so pending
tne pudiic ana exhaustive investigation
about to be instituted." The president
adds the -suggestion: "That the con
sul general should have professional aid
In such investigation, though that mat
ter, together with the selection of the
particular persons to act with bim,
properly devolves upon my successor in
office." Instead of transmitting the
official correspondence, the secretary
supplies an account of his own composi
tion covering the essential facts in the
case. lie says: "Ruiz, a native of
Cuba, came to this country during the
revolution which terminated in 1878, and
studied dentistry at Philadelphia, de
claring his intention to become a citi
zen of the United States in 1S77, taking
nis nnai papers in 1830. After this he
returned to Cuba and has resided there
Implied Complaint of tec.
He details Ruiz' arrest on Feb. 4. of
which he says the department was im
mediately informed, but that nothing
more was heard of the matter until
Feb. li, when the consul general re.
ported that Ruiz had been found dead.
He says the department had assumed
that the case was being attended to
during this interim, and that a demand
would be made that the prisoner should
be put communicado, but that it after
wards developed that no such demand
had been made, and the prisoner had
remained constantly in solitary confine
ment. The circumstances attending the
aeatn were such as to lead to a demand
for immediate investigation.
OXE OF THESE REPORTS IS FALSE.
Divergence That Can Be Explained Only
ay Thorough Investigation.
'After such personal examination as
he was able to make," the secretarycon
tinues, "the consul general has reported
to the department that Ruiz was placed
and kept 315 hours m a small, close, and
filthy cell, 3 by 5, having a rough stone
floor with no window, and only a six
Inch square opening In the door for the

aiea rrom neglect or violence; that an
autopsy showed seven contusions on
his head; that he died from congestion
of the brain; that there was no fracture
or tne skull; but all knowledge was
fined to officials and that It was difficult
o ascertain tne facts.
He says that on the other ban th.
acting governor general of Cuba, in a
report made to his government on Feb.
o, mai xtuiz was connned in a
room over 8 by 19 feet with a larire win
dow; that the room showed no signs of
aampness, ana that Ruiz had an eav
nair ana a comtortable bed. This offi
cial also reports that Ruiz was fonntl
tn his room very much excited with a
contusion on his head after a blow was
heard in the room. He says the prison
er was then removed to a better room:
that on the 17th he was found by the at
tendant In the act of butting his head
against the grating of the door, and
though quieted by theattendant, shortly
The conclusions of the official renort
of the two governments being radically
conflicting the secretary says another
open and thorough investigation seemed
to this government indispensable, and
that the Spanish government concurred
in this view. The secretary endn
copy of Minister De Lome's letter ac
ceding to this request. He says that
Ruiz did not make known his Ameri
can citizenship when arrested, a cir
cumstance, he says, which often occurs.
