Havana. Sept. 12 It la enppoeetl that the
joint commission hu don nothing forthe
than to exchange credential, which took place
at the conference yesterday.
To-day Lieut. -Col. Clout, Deputy Jndfe
Advocate General and Secretary ol tha
commission, presented Id writing to the
Spanish Commissioner an outline of
what the United Rtatee Commissioner
propose to do. and what they expect of the
Rpanleh Government. Thla will be replied to,
ahortly by the Spanish Commissioners, and
JBk earnest work will than begin.
jm The Spanish Commissioners will meet In the
morning for tha purpose of discussing tha note
tWJk of tho American Commlaalonore. Just when
9Jr another session of the joint commission will
be held haa not yet been determined. The
American Commissioner are preparing to
leasa a hotel tu the eastern part of the olty. but
they will doubtless remain on board the Reso
lute for ten daya.
It Is said that the commission expect to re
main here during the entire winter, or during
the time the Spanish troops are evacuating
the island. It is now generally believed that
I this evacuation cannot be accomplished in leas
than aixty days, but it will be the commission's
object to facilitate the evacuation in even way
possible.
This morning Admiral Sampson, on the
transport Resolute, sent a long communi
cation to Maraui Montoro. a member
of the Spanish commission to arrange for
the evacuation of the island. The contents
of the communication are. of course, unknown.
Marquis Montoro Is the only civilian member
of the commission. Admiral Bampson's com
munication wns brought ashore by Col. Clous
and Capt. Hart.
It is announced In despatches from Madrid
that instructions to the Spanish Commission
ers are coming by mail from Spain.
j Gen. Blanco and all the Spanish authorities
were much pleased by the courtesy shown by
Admiral Sampson yesterday, when he raised
the Spaniah flag on the mainmast of the Reeo-
lute and fired a salute in honor of the birth
day of the Princess of the Asturias. King Al
fonso's eldest sister.
This action on the part of Admiral Sampson
has dissipated all the misunderstanding occa
sioned by the failure of the Resolute to salute
when she arrived here with the American
Commissioners.
The city presents Its usual appearance.
There are a number of foreign warships in the
arbor.
The utmost indignation has been excited
among the Spanish military and naval officers
hare by the terrible charges made in the
Cortes at Madrid against the Spanish.Generals
by Count Almenas. Captain-General Blanco
Thus sent a despatch to Madrid protesting
energetically against the Count's wanton In
sults. Gen. .Blanoo. who, after the .beginning
of the war. merely followed his Government's
Instructions, was ready on his side to con
tinue the war to the bitter end. and he re-
' sent the attacks made In the Cortes against
All the army and navy of Spain without any ex
ception whatever.
A meeting of naval officers was held here
A last night to protest against the utterances of
Count Almenas. Resolutions were adopted to
the effect that the Spanish Navy had fulfilled
It duty during the war; that disaster came
on account of the superiority of the American
vessels and artillery and that, therefore.
Count Almenas's remarks were unjuatSand
cruel.
The news that was received this morning
r. J , that Gen. Linares, formerly the Spanish com
mander at Santiago de Cuba, had sent seconds
to Count AJmenas to arrange a duel, caused a
sensation. Gen. Linares's action is warmly
supported here.
Ip Comment has been oaused by the arrival in
the harbor of Sefior Guerra, the Treasurer of
a the Cuban Junta, and Brig.-Gen. Freyre of the
Cuban Army. The police have not yet per
mitted Guerra to land. The latter is the bear
M er of the proclamation recently Issued by the
I W. Cuban Government calling for a general
1, J u eleotlon of representatives to form a new pro
fl visional Government. This proclamation
m I was written by Gonzales Lanu-ia, a member of
E I the New York Junta, and Vice-President Men-
des Capote.The plan was framed in New York
IV-7 I br 8efior Capote when on his last trip there,
and he returned to Cuba, accompanied by
lfffl Sefior Lanuza to carry It out.
r"jf! The insurgents outside Havana are re-
f' T oeivlng provisions from the Cubans In the
M rsity. Gen. Blanoo is praised by the Cubans for
ft ML having allowed Civil Governor Castro to send
bs gYi' provisions to the Insurgents, as well as to the
WmaJl famine-stricken paciflcos. In giving his or-
B ders for the distribution of the food. Gen.
Blanco said that noldlstlnotlon was to be made
fflB between insurgents and puclflcos when they
HI were in need.
I The radloal Autonomists have adopted reso
lutions advocating the independence of Cuba
as against annexation by the United Htates.
H The resolutions are signed oy such prominent
Autonomists as Glberga a..d Vlondi.
A group of men of all classes gathered yes-
terduy in front of the Buona Vista Railroad
B Mi station and began shouting "Viva Cuba Libre."
Nobody heeded them until their number in
jlnKt creased and they became too noisy, when they
llSv were s.-rested for disorderly conduct. They
Wfrl showed great surprise nt their arrest, bollev
T y 'eg tnut w',n ",0 arrival of the American
i I Commissioners they could shout freely.
J 1 The Havana press published to-day for the
v 1 I Orst time the official text of the peace protocol.
I . Major Bererson of the British Engineers ar
rived here to-day from Santiago, whither he
went to watch the military operations.
MM I COL. MORAN DEPOSED.
HA Tamed Down by the Irish Volunteers n a
TfM Result of the Irish Fair.
Ml Col. James Morun has been deposed as com
jflFj mander of the First Regiment, Irish Volun
teers, and the organization is threatened with
V disruption. The trouble dates buck to the
Irish Fair, which was held a year ago last win
Hn ter for the purpose of raising funds to erect an
)1 Irish hall in this city. Col. Moran was the ac
MJlK tlve manager. The fair, apparently, was ulgreat
BflK Buocess. but at its close the discovery was
I Ml made that tho net receipts were not very large
ist'l after all. and the grumbling began at once.
I On Thursday a meeting of the officers of (he
LTV I First Regiment was held and a resolution was
an sV adopted depriving Col. Moran of his command.
Qpl. Moran, however, still claims to be the
WB Colonel of the regiment. He blames all the

MAT MSn flT A COVRT.MART1AL.
pata Asked ttsto Investigate th stllllagof
Frlsonert on Ihe Harvard.
vTaskimotos. Hept. 12. At the request of
the Spanish Government, made through the
French Embassy, the War Department ha
begun an investigation of the tragedy aboard
the United State auxiliary cruiser Harvard
by which a number of the captive sailors from
Cervero's ships lost their live. Tho prison
ers were nnder guard of volunteers on the Har
vard on the night of July 4 off Santiago when
the affair occurred. Tho Ninth Massachusetts
and part of theTThlrty-fourth Michigan regi
ments had just arrived off Santiago on the
Harvard. Some of tho volunteers were de
tailed to watch the Spaniards, and In the le
llef that the prisoners had mutinied tho
guards fired Into the ranks of the captives.
Several were killed and others wore wounded.
The Investigation, which Is now In progress.
may result In a court-martial. Lleut.-Col. E.
H. Dudlor. Assistant Judge Advocate General
of Volunteers, is now nt Portsmouth, N. II .
where he has token testimony from United
States marines and Spanish prisoners who
witnessed the affair. According to the under
standing in official circles here the Spanish
Government wants to make It appear that the
prisoners were shot without cause. None of
the army nnd navy officers asked about the
affair to-dav had over hoard of any claim for
Indemnity by one nation against a nation with
which it had boon at war for the Ill-treatment
of prisoners.
Neither the Navy Department nor the War
Department has ever been able to learn who
was responsible for tho killing of the Span
lards. At the time tho affair noppened. the
Navy Department was requested by Admiral
Cervera to lnvoatigate tho tragedy so that he
could make a report to his Government on his
return to Spain. This request. It was said to
day, was referred to the War Department, but
the case remained unsettled until tho French
Embassy renewed tho request In behalf of the
Madrid authorities. Then the Navy Deport
ment asked the War Department whether It
would prefer to have a joint Inquiry or to have
on lnvetlgatlon.by tho War Departmen' alono.
Tho military authorities preferred tho latter
course, and, after securing from the naval
branch documents relating to the killing, sent
Lieut. -Col. Dudley to Portsmouth. Tolo-
frams have also been sent to the Governors of
assachusetts nnd Michigan, asking them to
ascertain what troops wore detalleato guard
the Spaniards on the Harvard when the snoot
ing occurred. Cant. Cotton of the Harvard, in
his report, said that Michigan men were on
duty at the time, but it has been assorted that
tho guards wore from tho Massachusetts regi
ment. Capt. Cotton's report, now in tho possession
of the War Department, says that the affair
mktit have been avoided, but he does not
btnme the volunteers who did tho shooting.
According to his version some of the Span
iards hod been sleeping on a deckhouse of tho
Harvard, to which thev had been forbidden.
These men started to climb on the deckhouse
and wore warned off by the sentinel.
Not understanding, or pretending not to
understand, the warning, they continued to
come forward. The sentinel then ran toward
them with his bayonet advanced. He was at
tacked, and his oomrades, responding to his
cries, fired into the prisoners, killing and
wounding a number of thorn. z.
Another report says that the sentinels had
been strictly enjoined not to allow any of the
prisoners to climb on tho deckhouse, because
there was a quantity of ammunition there.
In carrying out his orders n sentinel was as
saulted and it was necessary to Ore into the
Spaniards, who wore swarming over the deck
house and sljowed everv disposition to mu
tiny. The Spanish defence is that the prison
ers thought the ship was on tire and they
rushed over the deckhouse to escape the
flames.
There Is some feeling over the matter in o".
cinl circles, the Navy Department appearing
to believe that the War Department was remiss
in not making an investigation when request
ed the first time and thus creating an impres
sion in .Spain that the United States could not
afford to have the true story told.

Rowan and Capt. Hnrker of the Second Artil

from (Hbar. They rode across the Island,
taking three days for tho trip. Lient.-Col.
Rowan and Capt. Hnrker landed at Glbara from
tho Gussle threo week ago. They brought
word to Gen. Lawton of the operation of tho
Cuban Government there.
Gen. Garcia occupied Glbara when he left
Santiago after writing a letter to Gen. Shaftor
complaining that the Americans had not
treated the Cubans properly. Tho Span
lards abandoned the town on his ap
proach. Gen. Garcia assumed charge of
affairs, put Cubans In all the municipal offloos.
levied taxes and collected duties from ships
entering the harbor. He repulsed attempts of
a Spanish force from Holguln to retake the
town on Aug. 16 and 17.
Col. Garcia told the correspondent of Tbb
Sun that everything at Glbara was run
ning smoothlv. His father had demand
ed contributions to the amount of S50,
000 when he entered the town, but on
learning a few days later that the peace proto
col had been signed, he placed the money in a
bank and did not use It. The money Is still In
the bank, but Is to be returned to the men who
contributed It. There Is great scarcity of pro
visions in the town and much sickness among
the poor.
Lleut.-Col. Rowan, Capt. Hnrker and Col.
Garcia nil urged Gen. Lawton to send fresh
moat to tho town, it being badly needed to sup
ply the sick with broth. Gen. Lawton will take
stops to send relief to Glbara immediately.
Col. Garcia told Gen. Lawton that since his
father had left the Cuban Army the General
had been exerting his personal influence
among the Cubans to lead them to turn their
arms over to the Americans, return to their
homos and go to work. Gen. Garcia has told
the Cubans, his son says, that they have
nothing to gain by retaining their arms and
resisting the efforts of the Americans to restore
order and establish a stable government. Gen.
Garcia has sent tho officers of his staff home to
spread his views with regard to the necessity ot
immediately disbanding the army.
Gen. Lawton has received word from Capt.
Hendosa of his staff and the Cuban General.
Dometrlo Castillo. who left Santiago a week ago
to attend a conference of prominent Cubans In
Camaguey. that the meeting would take place
in Santa Crux. Instead of Camaguey, on Sept. 15.
Vice-President Capote and two or three other
prominent officers of tho Cuban Government
will attend the meeting at Santa Cruz. Both
Capt. Mendoxa and Gen. Castillo write favor
ably of their mission, which Is to urge
upon tho Cuban leaders the Importance
ot immediately disbanding the army and
sending the men to gather tho crops,
and to point out to them tho futility
of the Cubans remaining under arms. Tho
most partisan Cuban leaders. Gen. Castillo says
In his letter to Gen. Lawton. have given up the
Idea of attempting to resist the Americans.
The Cubans about Santiago expect an Im
portant communication from the Government
at Camaguey to-morrow.
The balloting for delegates to the Cuban
Congress to assemble at Camaguey early In
October began to-day at El Cobre. Cuovitas.
Bonlato. Glbara. .Tlguani and other places in
the province of Santiago held by the Cubans.
The Cubans in Santiago city are not allowed to
vote because the place is held by the Ameri
cans exclusively and the Cubans have no share
In the government.
A Ward line steamer arrived here from Cien
fuegos to-day with a cargo of much-needed
fresh beef and other supplies. The officers of
the steamship say that the suffering in Cien
fuegos from starvation Is terrible. The war
has reduced the best families to invert y, and
begging isgoneral. The Cubans outside the city
are allowed to come In by the Spaniards occu
pying the town to sell anything they get in the
country- The Cubans have been reduced by
starvation and disease to mere skeletons.
Spaniards and Cubans alike are delighted the
war is over. The Cubans are anxiously await
ing the order from Camaguey to disband their
forces. The men want to go to their homos to
try to gather enough together to carry them
and their families through the winter months.
A member of the First Battalion of the Fifth
regulars died from yellow fever to-day. The
case was not pronounced yellow fever until the
patient was breathing his last. The announce
ment caused considerable stir because It was
not believed that there was any yellow fever in
this battalion. It is believed that Gen. Lawton
will isolate the battalion to-morrow. The dead
soldlor was buried without waiting for the
Chaplain. The funeral service was read to
night by the light of a lantern by the Adjutant
of the regiment.
Forty per cent, of the Fifth Regulars re

Cauba. Crete. Sept. 12. The foreign Admirals
have resolved. In consequence of tho disturb
ances In Candla, that the Ottoman troops must
withdraw from the Island ol Crete at once.
Const antixopmc Sept 12. Tho Porte has
abandoned its intention of addressing a circu
lar upon the recent events in Candla to the
repreeentntivesof the Governments at London.
Paris. St. Petersburg and Rome.
Cavdia. Crete. Sept. 12. The Italian Vlco
Consul describes the recent massacre of
Christians by tho Mussulmans as being accom
panied by ghastly scenes.
The mob burst into tho British Consulate.
where British Vice-Consul Calochcrlno nnd
many Christians had taken refuse
Onco Insldo tho building, tho mob compelled
the Vice-Consul to deliver up the money in his
possession, which nmounted to nbout 2,000
napoleons, and then silt his throat and sot fire
to the promises.
Tho Turkish guard thnt had been posted to
protect the consulate fired on the Christians.
The looting, however, was not confined to the
house of Christians. Much Turkish property
was either plundered or destroyed.
The foreign Admirals havo sent nn Identical
telegram to their resnectlvo Governments de
claring that the situation is very grave.
Tho Christians are assembling to march on
Candla, and a conflict is imminent. The Mo
hammedans at Retlmo and Canea have as
sumed a threatening attitude.
Each Admiral has asked foranother battalion
ot troops. Rear Admiral Noel, the British
commander, has taken' charge. He landed
this afternoon with M. Billot 1 1, the British Con
sul, and Inspected the town.
The aspect of the town "is horrible. Every
where there wore ruins, some ot which were
still smouldering. A tew Moslems watched the
progress of the Admiral In apparent awe. Not
a voice was raised.
The plucky telegraph staff la guarded by Ot
toman troops. The International troops are in
their own camp, which is strongly barricoded
and has guns mounted, but it Is Incapable of
making a defence against a strong attack with
out support from the warships.
The Porte has ordered the formation ot a
commission of beys to estimate the damage.
Many of these suffered heavy losses.
They admit that tho conduct of the Bashi
Barouks and Turkish troops was indefensible.
The mob. however, were desperate, owing to
its disappointment at the delay of the settle
ment of the Cretan question, and the priva
tions, losses and confinement lu the towns.
At the time tho recent war between Turkey
and Greece began. Crete had a Christian Gov
ernor, but he was utterly powerless, because
never would tho Sultan consent to place tho
military commander under his orders; conse
quently he was able to do nothing more than
offer unheeded advice. The Christians have a
decided numerical preponderance In Crete, and
It was only the presence of tho Sultan's troops
that, made it possible to carry out a policy of
oppression against the Christians.

RUSSIAN OIRL COMMITS STICIDB.
Left a Letter Saying She Found It Neces
sary to Kill Herself.
Bertha Markowitz. 22 years old, committed
suicide yesterday in her room in what are
known as the Kindergarten flats, ut 340 Cherry

oountrv five years ago from Kownow. Russia,
and got work making women's wrappers in a
factory in Pitt street. She hod no relatives in
this country, with the exception of a cousin
named Samuel Mendelsohn, who lives at ISO
Clinton street.
Bertha had been keeping company for sev
eral years with a young man whose name could
not be ascertained. For tho past two or three
weeks the tenants noticed tiiat sho was de
spondent. She ell ed on her cousin on Satur
day last and asked him what wus the best way
to commit suicide.
Mcndels din, thinking she wns joking, said
tho rope was as good us any way lie knew.
"I don't think so; gus is easier. 1 have been
told." said Bertha, nnd she left tho house.
Miss Steinfeldt nnd her brother left the flat
to go to work about il o'clock yesterday morn
ing. Two hours later Robert Scott, the jani
tor, smelled gas. and, forcing the door of Ber
tha's room open, found her lying ou the floor
dead. Her head wus resting on a gas stove,
which was turned ou. The door anil windows
in the room were plugged up with puist to pre
vent the gus escaping.
In the suicide's hand was a letter written in
Russian and addressed "To my friends and
acquaintances." In It she requested forgive
ness tor what she wus about to do.
"I have thought of t his for a long time." the
lettor ran, "and at last I tlnd it necessary to
kill myself. 1 cannot toll why 1 do this, but I
beg my friends not to think of mo unkindly.
Notify my father and mother uud my eleven
brothers and sisters In Russia ot my death.
but do not tell them how I died."

A Spanish Assertion That Blanco Not Only
Drove Cervera Out of Santiago, but
Hoped the Admiral Wonld Be Killed
Wilful Treachery In Havana Charged.
Washington. Sept. 12. Tho following slate
ment concerning the events lending up to the
destruction of tho Spanish licet off South go
July 3. und which is along the lines upon which
Admiral Ccrvorn will lav his caso before tho
ofllclnls nt Madrid, wns tntido public to-day
from Spanish sources:
"Tho .full truth concerning what led to the
destruction of the magnificent Cape Verde fleet
has ncvorvot been told, nnd tho time has come
when ertnlii tacts which havo boon
heretofore withhold should l-o mnilo pub
lic. It Is truo that Admiral Cervera nnd
his officers may bo conrt-mnrtinled upon
reaching Spain, and mxn conviction It Is
alo true that they could bo hot If tho authori
ties. 'those composing the court-martial or tho
Government, saw lit to Impose such a penalty.
However, such n catastrophe Is not looked for:
It will not occur: and when nil tho facts are
plainly sot foith and the blame iilnccd where 11
belongs. It will be clearly shown that Admiral
Cervera acted like tho wise and sagacious Ad
miral that ho Is nnd both ho and his officers
and crow will bo completely exonerated.
"Notwithstanding this, their situation at
present or upon their approaching Spain Is crit
ical, and it may bo safely said that the high
standing of Admiral Cervera's family
all bolng of royal blood will not save
him from court-martial. Public opinion
has been Inflamed against him in Spain
through gross misrepresentation, through
falsehood and conspiracy of those who seek
to shift the blame for tho loss of tho Spanish
ships from their own shoulders to tho shoulders
of Admiral Cervera. Their erring deeds, un
faithfulness and trenohory wore entirely re
sponsible for tho disaster they would place
upon those who nre Innocent, and who. if al
lowed to exercise their own wisdom and dis
cretion, would havo saved for Spain the pride
of her navy.
"It Is untrue that Admiral Cervera. after
leaving the Cniio Vcrdo Islands nnd reaching
western waters, was sooking to avoid tho
American fleet and flying hero nnd there to
avoid a light. Naturally, his plans wore dif
ferent from those luid out for him to fol
low by the American Board of Strategy, for he
was endeavoring to separate the American
fleets and engage them separately; he wanted
to moot and light them singly, but his mis
fortune would not permit him to do that.
hen lie was nearly without coal and being in
need of some slight repairs to his ships he
naturally put Into Santiago, expecting thereto
find supplies, to mukn what few repairs were
needed, get provisions and proceed further,
but tbore he was greatly disappointed.
" Through the interference of (ion. Blanco ho
was prevented from carrying out his plans, and
tho whole world knows the result. Gen. Blanco
Immediately communicated to Spain ami asked
the Minister of Marine to place Admiral Cer
vera and his fleet under his (Blanco's) orders,
making various representations and explain
ing tho necessity of such action from his stand
point, and his request wus finally granted.
" It wns simply a deep diabolical trick on the
part of Gen. Blanco. Ho foresaw disaster
somewhere, and in case it should come ho
wanted to have someone high in authority upon
whom ho con Id shove a portion if not all of the
blame for any loss which mlghr accrue to Spain
and for which he was bold responsible. Gen.
Blanco then ordored Cervera to remain In San
tiago and assist in the defence ot the shore
batteries. Admiral Cerveiti protested strongly
against this and appealed to Spain, but it Is
doubt l ii I If his appeal overreached the Govern
ment. Ho asked to be allowed to coal up and
then lenvo Santiago, where he might be free to
moot tho American fleet, rather than to bo
bottled up In a blockaded harbor. He contend
ed that he could not possibly be useful to Spain
by remaining in Bant lego harbor with the cer
tainty of American thins coming to keep him
there, whereas, outside and free, his strong
fleet could bo of great value to the Spanish
cause.
"The answer of Gen. Blanco was that Ad
miral Cervera was now subject to his orders,
and that he. and not Admiral Cervera. wus in
command of affairs In Cuba, and that tho Ad
miral must obey his command. Cervera could
then do nothing.
"After the Mcrrimnc affair, which made tho
name of Lieut, llobson Immortal and made
Admiral Cervera. by his kindly treatment of
the prisoner, well regarded by Americans when
he entile to lie a prisoner bimsetr. Cervera was
fully aware that Ii" could t ill got out of Sunt logo
harbor if ho had permission to do so. Ills
immediate investigation showed that the chan
nel was not entirely closed and that his ships
could pass out. Finally, when fully aware that
tho strong American licet wore waiting for him
outside of the harbor, as ho was completely in
formed of the movements of the Americans at
all times, he concluded that he would do his best
to defend the city, as it would at that time bo
certain destruction to attempt to run out of the
harbor. The time to escape had already passed,
nnd he bocame resigned to do his best.
" Then one night nn order camo to him from
Gen. Blanco to bo ready to sail out of the har
bor within twenty-four hours and fixing 1
o'clock in the morning for the tlmo of depar
ture, when, it was nrguod by Gon. Blanco, tho
Americans would bo taken by surprise and
probably off their guard and tho escape could bo
made. Admiral Cervera protested strongly
against this, maintaining that the American
commanders were too shrewd not to double
nud treble their guard at night, and pointed
out to (leu. lllnueo that 1 o'clock i in tho morn
ing would be a very bad time to start, if in
deed lie should Insist upon tho order to get out
of the harbor.
" Admiral Cervera did not know at that
time of tho villainy of Blanco In teie-
&raphlng to Madrid asking that Cervera
a removed from command of the fleet
and Commodore Villamil be placed In
command. Then Inter, whon tho fleet was
destroyed. Blanco sent another telegram stat
ing that it was tbo fault of the Minister of
Marine in not hooding his advice and granting
his request to remove Cervera.
"Blanco was fully aware that to leave San
tiago meant Iho destruction of the fleet, and
ho waited to again shift tho blame.
and so made the request for the change
ot commanders, which he knew would
not and could not be made, but ho nevertheless
had an excuse and some one to blame for not
accepting his counsel. Gen. Blanco knew that
tho action which ho ordered must moan the
destruction of the fleet, nnd ho actually hoped
and believed thut It would moan the deuth of
Admiral Cervera. so that he could not make
answer to tho charges which Blanco pro
jHised to make against him.
"Tho same vile treachery of Gen. Blanco is
also shown in his conduct toward Gen. Toral.
who ho first ordered to surrender the city when
it became actually necessary to do so and the
siege could no longer bo endured, und then
publicly accused of cowardice whon ho and his
command bud laid down their arms In honor
able surrender.
"Every ono ot Admiral Cervera's craw, of
course, knew thnt in attempting to escape
from Snntlugo harbor at the time they did
mount not only tho loss of their ves
sels, but probablv death to thorn. They
knew thut the course they were entering upon
by order of Gon. Blanco was ono of suicide, and
all expected to llnd graves at tho bottom of the
sea. But the fleet would not have attempted
the escape had It not been for the command of
Blanco, and tho only concession which Ad
miral Cervera could obtain from the Captain
General was a change in the time of departure.
"It Is true that Admiral Cervera and some
Of his officers and crew attempted to es
cape by swimming to the shore, but there
they found another obstacle and were fired
upon by a force of men whom it was after
wurd learned wore Cubans under command
of Col. Oaudelnrls Cobrocos. The Spaniurds
have no cause for complaint at tile treatment
received at their hands, for when the rank of
their prisoners was usoertaincd 'Hoy were
taken to the Cuban rump nud afterward sur
rendered to tho American comninnders and
distributed among the American ships.
" The remainder is all history, but the world
at large has never known the real inside fuels
or the cause which led to the destruc
tion of the pride of tliu Spanish navy, and
the blame has never Mian proiwrly attached.
History knows that t he Spanish Cupe Verde fleet
was destroyed by superior American force.
but It docs not know of the wilful treachery.
incompetency, und dastardly rlllulny of those
who were responsible fir It. and Admiral Cer
vera will in the end bo vindicated."
