The Antique Little Vessels Given the Un
precedented Compliment of a Salute
Before "Old tilery" Had Been Hon
ored Brought Into Port by the Spanish
Cruiser Inlauta Tsabel Secretary Her
Foist Monroe, April 22. After a stormy
time, especially around Cape Hatteras, the
Spanish fleet towing the caravels of Colum
bus has entered Hampton Roads. The
SPANISH WARSHIP INFANTA TSABEL.
cruiser Infanta Ysabel, with the Pinta 100
yards astern, was in the van. When the
two vessels were abreast of Fort Monroe
the water battery paid them a most un
usual compliment and saluted before the
Spaniard had tired in ! lor of the Amer
ican nag. Mich ilistiiicumi lias never been
paid any nation in the history of the world.
But this compliment to the nation under
whose banner the New World was discov
ered seemed to please the Russian and
Dutch flagships so well that they followed
Twenty-One Gam for -Old Glory."
After the Pitita came the little gunboat
Neuva Spain leading the Xina. To the
northwest was the flagship Keina Regente,
towing the Santa Maria, the flagship of
the Great Admiral in his eventful voyage
of discovery. By the time the Infanta Ysa
bel had taken a position abreast of the
flagship Newark the Reina Regente had
wheeled around and was ready to restt be
tween the Jean Bart and the Giovani Bau
san. As her anchor went tumbling over
the side the stars and stripes floated at her
masthead and the national salute of twenty-one
tuns was fired.
A Thunderous Reply Returned. ,
All of the foreign flagships poured forth
volley after volley to the Spaniards and
the Columbus caravels. The scene in the
roads as the Spanish fleet and its famous
convoys steamed in was the most brilliant
spectacle that has yet been witnessed,
rivaled only by the five English vessels as
they ran np the harbor. The day opened
with sunshine that has never been equalled.
A gentle breeze blew from the southward
and eastward, tempering the heat which
was already beginning to make itself felt.
Th'e Crack Spanish Cruiser.
The Spanish admiralty has done honor
in sending over the Keina Regente, for she
is one of the most modern as well as effi
cient and powerful vessels in the world. Her
low.black hull and light colored superstruc
ture give her an appearance not altogether
unlike the Knglish flagship Blake. The
Infanta is about in the class with Amer
ican small gunboats.
Secretary Herbert nn Hand.
The Dolphin, which will have President
Cleveland on board during the naval par
ade in New York, has arrive-i with Secre
tary Herbert, accompanied by his daugh
ter, Mrs. Manning, Miss Fryer, and Naval
Aide Ensign Wood. He was received with
the salute due his rank. letter he gave a
reception to the officers of the fleets here,
and tonight ue will give them a banquet.

ance. Rather an Odd Situation.

DEBS AND THE FIREMEN.
Report That He Will Be Expelled for Ad'
itiiiiE hauts, ina., April V4. a com
mittee of the members of the Brotherhood
of Locommotive Firemen called on Eu
gene V. Debs, past grand secretary of the
order, and present editor of the official
organ of the brotherhood, and asked him
whether a certain interview given public
ity a few weeks ago was authorized by
mm. i.ne interview set forth the aim and
object of the American Railway Union, of
which Debs is president, and criticised the
Brotherhood of Firemen.
In response to the question Debs said the
Interview was authentic. The committee
will report back to the lodge and immedi
ate action will be taken. The members
will not exp.ess an opinion, but it is quietly
given out that Debs will be expelled from
the lodge. 1 his will also sever his connec
tion with the magazine, A peculiar feature
of the trouble is that many of the very
features of the order criticised by Debs
were adopted during the last few years
mainly upon his recommendation.
Referring to the last statement above
Debs says he has been in forty-eight fights
with roads and never won. "The day has
been when I was a warm advocate of this
manner of organization, but the day of
their usefulness is over. The men have
paid in vast sums for protection they never
received. Did you ever know of an organ
ization wimung a strike? Not one. Time
and again they have been defeated. When
a railroad company will allow its men to
strike it will whip them; that is certain."
