PORT IN ORDER TO LEAVE HA?
VANA?THRILLING EXPEH IENCE*
AFTER THE RESCUW. [
New York, Oct. 15.?Kurl Decker, of
Washington, known in Havana as
Charles Dnval, the rescuer of Evagelina
Cossio y Cisneros from the Casa de Reco
jidas, Havana, who arrived in this city
yesterday, was met down the hay by a
number of newspaper men, and said:
"I was commissioned by the New Vork
Journal to no to Cuba and dclivci Se
utorltn Cossio y Cisncr s from the filthy
Recojidas prison. I started from New
York August 28, determined to free the
woman, though I did not see my way
clear as to tne plan to be adopted. After
reaching Havana many plans suggested
themselves to me, but each one proved
impracticable. I tried to bribe the jailor
or alcalde, but he wauted SMi.OttO'for the
job and positive assurances that he and
his family could yet to the United States.
This was too rich a proposition for me."
Mr. Decker repeated the story of the
rescue fiom 'he jail as already told in his
dispatches, ami then related what hap?
pened after the girl was out of the prison,
"When Senorita Cossio y Cisneros en?
tered our shanty adjoining the jail we let
her rest a few moments and then took
her to a carriage awaiting outside and
drove to the house of a friend. The friend
was holding a reception that night.which
was a part of the plot. The man who
drove the carriage was one of the conspi?
rators. Senorita Cossio y Cisneros was
exhausted from exciteme.it when she
reached the house, but she did not give
"On Thursday morning she was taken
to the home of a friend, wheie she re?
mained in secrecy until Saturday after?
"To reach the steamer for New York
she was obliged to walk down Obispo
street, the principal thoroughfare of Ha?
vana, at a time when the street was
crowded,and yet take her time and rmoko
a cigar. If she had skulked "about the
back streets she would immediately have
been suspected. It was over n m'le from
the house to the pier She had a pass?
port made out under an assumed name.
i\ll the steamships anchor out in the
stream. Senorita Cossio y Cisneros
walked down from the house, clad ns a
rancher, and my companion and 1 follow?
ed behind. She sauntered along leisurely,
and once in a while turned about to see
if we were followiug. We mot'oned her
to go'on. She grew more confident as she
went along, but we could see that she
was under a strain. Shu got on the
launch and we v.-aited, and when the
launch returned from tue vessel and she
was not on it, we knew that the scheme
hail worVed like a charm.
"The day after the jailbreak the town
was astir over the escape of Senorita
Cossio y Cisneros,a house to house search
was begun and would have been kept up
had not a telegram from Minister Dupuy
de Lome at Washington informed Wey ler
that the girl was on the high seas and ex?
pected any day in New York. Then Wey
ler was mad. He threw the jailor. Jose
Quintana, into jail,^whereupon the jailer
told about my attempting to "bribe him.
This, in connection with the surmise of
De Lome, placed suspicion on me. I gave
it out that I was going to take a steamer
for Mexico. There was only one steamer
leaving Sunday, and that was i Spanish
steamer. I waited for instructions from
New York, and had almost made up my
Clind to start Sunday, instructions or no
instructions. My instructions came,
"My passport was made out In the
name of Karl Decker. In order to take
the Panama Sunday night and run the
g uintlet I must get my passport vised and
stamped With the seal of^tho secretary of
the captain general. I knew that my
passport would never be Bigned and I
learned that an order for my arrest was
determined on, and that 1 was to be ar
-ested ut 5 o'clock Monday morning. I
was in a bad plck.c. I got a glimpse of
the writing of Scnor Carjoval, the secre?
tary of Weyler, und I copied it -o that I
had it down fine. Then I forged the vis?
rr ynnturc. 1 determined tol do without
the seal. At the last moment I went to
the wharf and took the launch for the
steamship. The inspector looked at my
passport and asked where the sea1 was.
1 assumed a nonchalant air, as best 1
could, and told him that Senor Carjoval
was at the Ingleterre Hotel, and having
no seal, he signed his name to a state
ment, saying it was all right. The in?
spector hesitated and showed the signa?
ture to another inspector, who said all
right, and I was safe.
"The Spanish authorities never
thought for a moment that I would take
a Spanish steamer. Nearly all the Amer
leans take the American line. They did
not think to guard the Panama aud
watch for me. They arrest all pi isoners
at 5 o'clock in the morning. They were
sure I would be in town on Monday, and
thev were fooled."
