This detailed report contains a number ot telegraphic errore. principally of punctuation, which the Navy Department did not attempt to correct In the copies glron to the press. Tho frreatost regret waa expressed by tho naval officials over tho loss of tho Maria Teresa. Assistant 8ocretnry Allen expressed the gen eral opinion when lie said that tho vessel was the only physical reminder of the great naval victory of Santiago, and that for sentimental reasons, more thnn anything else, it wasagreat pUy that sho could not havo been presorved. There will be no change In the decision of the Navy Department to abandon work on the Colon unless somo private wrecking concern will undortnko to save that ship at Its own financial risk In consequence of tho Maris Teresa's loss. The Infanta Maria Teresa was raised under tho personal direction of Naval Constructor R. P. Hobson. Rho had gone ashore and could have been hauled off without great difficulty It a large rock, projecting through her bottom, had not made It Impossible to float her without raising the hull above the apex of thn rock. Constructor Hohson overcame the difficulty, after repeated trials. In sixteen days. Tho depth of water where thn llarla Teresa wns abandoned la about 2.700 fathoms, or 10.200 feet. It Is 200 miles from Nassau, the nearest port. She had sailed 310 nautical ml joa from Ounntannmo.and was O00 nautical miles from Charleston and about the same dtstinoo from Savannah. The Infanta Maria Teresa was a sister ship of the Vizeava, and was Admiral Cervern's flag ship In the engagement at Santiago. Tho Te resa wns launchod at Balboa on Aug. 30. 1880.

The attempt to savo tho sunken Spanish cruiser Cristobal Colon has been abandoned by ordor of Capt. Chester of the cruiser Cincinnati, and no effort wlil be made to raise tho Vizcaya if Capt. Chester's recommendation to tho Nnvy De partment is acted upon. Capt. Chester re turned from a trip of inspection to the wrecks of tho Vizcaya and Cristobal Colon to-day on board the tug Potomac. Ho told tho corre spondent of The 6uh this afternoon that he had ordered the wrecking company's employees nt work on the Colon away yesterday. He said that after ho had inspected tho Colon carefully and noted her difficult position and tho steep, sloping sea bottom, he had concluded that the cost of rais ing hor. with nine chances to one in favor of failure, wero too great to justify tho attempt Even if they were successful In floating her, Capt Chester said, he doubted whether she could be fitted for sorvAe at a figure under that of tho cost of a now and better boat He thought the possibility of raising the Vls oaa oven more remote Tho Vizcaya Is eaten by rust and decay and is In bad shape. The only thing tho American Navy will have to re member the Vizcaya and ths Colon by aretholr guns. Even those not taken off by Mr. Hobson can bo saved and usee on Amuriean ships. The guns are of good quality as to metal and are In better condition than anything elso connected with the sunkon Spanish sblps. Entering tho harbor this afternoon Capt Chester inspected tho wreck of the cruiser Rein a Mercedes carefully, nnd concluded that sho could bo ralsod at trifling expense and nddod ;to the American Navy. The work ot floating her will bo commenced in a short time. After raising the Mercedes Capt. Chester will blow off tho smokestack and upper works of the sunken collier Merrtmac, which lies at tho mouth of the harbor, closs to the main channol. It will not bo necessary fb blow up the Merrlmao entirely, as when tha smoke, stack and masts are gone there will be thlrty flvo feet ot water over her. Gen. Wood paid a visit to Capt Chester on board the Cincinnati to-day, and reoelved a salute of thirteen guns as he boarded and again as he left tho ship. Con. Wood received a telegram from the Cuban Provisional Convention at Santa Cruz to-day asking that ho furnish a boat to take to Mariano the committee In whoso hands the affairs of tho insurrectionists are to be placed. Tho request was signed by some of the men who are most violent In tho clamor against tho continuance nt American authority In the provlnoo of Santiago. The Cubans won't get the boat, as den. Wood neods all of the vessels hare for the business of the province. The Cubans here are favorably inclined toward tho Americans, and aro expecting an order from the Banta Cruz Assembly shortly to disband the Insurrectionary forcos la the province of Santiago.

Sneitl CMt DupaUUt to Tsi 8m. Loxdow. Nor, C During the past wcok Uiere has not been any really now event actu ally bearing upon tho Anglo-French crisis. BtllL It Is Impossible to deny that the general aspect of affairs has considerably altered and things look far more grave. There Is no need to discuss Lord Salisbury's words yesterday emnroe regarding Fashoda. Thry were merely the official announcement of what was already well known. The question Is how muoh ought to bo read botwoon tho lines ot the negative statement "all eanses ot controversy havo not been removed." As repotted In this oorrespondsneo on last Saturday, tho Dahr-el-Ohazal problem re mains unsettled and tho mannor In which It will finally be settled now dopends entirely on tha French Government England's attitude seem definitely fixed by tho mannor In which sbt it undlsgulsedly preparing for war, and pouring out money with both bands. In vlewof this the French withdrawal from Fashoda can only be Interpreted in one way. Briefly Eng land has resohod to uphold, at all costs, hor declared policy in the Nils Valloy, a policy which Is summed up in Lord Ilosebery's dic tum: "The Nile is Egypt and Egypt is tho Nile." And it may bo added that England Includes both It France refuses to reoognlze this. It teems clear that England is arming to the teeth and making ready to see who will ven ture to contest her position. With a situation such as tills it is profitless, at the present moment to speculate whether Franco will put the question to England dis puting her rights, or whether England, find ing dlptomacy futile, will take the bull by ths horns, boldly declare a protectorate in Egypt and then await events. Considering tho nresent situation, there is one index to European opinion which has not yet attracted the attention It deserves, namely, Italy's warlike preparations. Italy has very little cash to spare at any time. The Minis ters of Finance and the Treasury have recently been exhausting every device to mako the budget balance. They now flnd all calcula tions upset by a Midden demand neon the exshequer by the War and Navy departments, espeololly the lattor. In fact, tho Italian navy is being rapidly mobilized and tho warships have been ordered toconcontrate at the island ot Maddalena. north of Bardlnia, for "extraor dinary manoeuvres." Tho manoeuvres certainly deserve to be called extraordinary in view ot the timo. place and general circumstances. Maddalena Island Is the nearest Italian fortified nlace to Corsica, and Is tho key to the maritime defence ot Italy. In normal times the Italian active fleet would have gone) into winter quarters at Bpezia, north Italy. In the middle of October, remain ing out of commission till March. " """Evidentlr Italy- fears grave international complications tn the nearifuture, andvtho fol lowing tacts are worthy ot consideration, namely: the relations of Holy and Germany as members of tho Triple Alliance: theSrelations ot England and Germany as regards the etUl somewhat mysterious Anglo-German com pact which possibly covers the whole African question: Italy's old friendship for England, and Emperor William's recent! close relations with the Snltan, wno is Suzerain ot Egypt and also the Emperor's hurried return home. The Italia ililttare. tho organ of tho Italian general staff, apnears to believe in a war be tween France and England, and dcolares that in such on event tho least Italy could do would be fully to mobilize her army and navy. It is jntt possible, though, that Italian naval activity it a hint to Ilussla, whose agents havo been Intriguing with the llttlo Sultanate ot Itaholta. on the Red 8ea. which has long been an Italian proteotorate. Italy has already de prived the Sultan ot his throne and made rep resentations at St Petersburg. On tho whole, it can only be said that Eng land has determined to uphold bor rights, and. while preparing, will be glad to avoid war. That point depends upon France, not forgetting tho influence of Russia, who has recently urged her -jot to go to war with England at this time. EUBOrK Rita THAT XSQLASD UKAMS WAO. Pabis. Nov. 5. The Fashoda crisis has ended. As all olear-slghted observers foresaw, thero never was serious danger that it would plunge France and England into war. Thoro is reason to foar, however, as has been hinted in Tub Son's London despatches for several weeks past, that a graver situation has been masked behind the Nile quarrel. Europe has been suspecting for some time that England was arming for another purpose. Tho fact that the complete backdown of Franco on tho Nile, which has been discounted for several days, has not checked British mobiliza tion is causing genuine alarm, especially at St Petersburg. The explanation which probably has the widest acceptance In Paris It that England has decldod to accept the Frenoh ohallonge and, as reported after last week's Cabinet counoll, will soon declare a protecto rate ovor Egypt St Petersburg has bettor reason for believ ing that Great Britain has at last decided upon aggressive resistance to Russian scheme In China. England's challenge, if it comes, will probably be delivered toon, and against what ever nation or group ot nations it is sent it Is not likely to be acoepted at the present junc ture Indications multiply that Ilussla espe cially and Franco by inforenco aro most anx ious to avoid a war. The French publio mind, now that the Cabi net crisis has been settled and the Dreyfus horror put out ot tight for a few weeks, has turned this week with rellof and something approaching enthusiasm to the rapidly nearing Exposition. There It genuine popular Insist ence upon tho restoration ot tranquillity In order to escape the failure ot the great Inter national show. There was some Irritation to day over the surrender ot Fashoda and the humiliation of France, but this sentiment la not likely to become violent XXOXUXDS PttErABATXOfTS.

Augustus Van Wyok. Mr. Odoll went up two flights to tho office of Bell & Co. and was very courteously received. Hs was polltoly In formed that Mr. Tatoott and Edward Bell had departed early and would be out ot town over Sunday. Mr. Odtll was then Introduced to Mr. Eadson. one of the partners ot Boll ft Co., and Mr. Odoll stated his mission. He said: "Mr. Eadson, I'm very sorry not to havo met Mr.Talcottor Mr. Edward Bell, but I believe you can arrange the llttlo matter which calls mo hero. I do not bellove In this betting busi ness, but at the Fifth Avonuo Hotel this morn ing at breakfast a tow of tar Republican friends banded me $20,000 in cash, and they thought that I should come down to see Bell ft Co. and atk this well-known firm it it would not put up a liko amount ot money on Mr. Van Wyclc My friends wanted me to bet this $20,000 that Col. Roosevelt will bo oleotod Govornor of the State of New York. I want to assure you again. Mr. Edason, that I do not be llovo in this betting business, but Inasmuch as my friends at the Fifth Avenue Hotel havo de sired mo to execute this commission, I am observing tholr commands. "Mr. Odell," replied Mr. Edasdn in his very nicest tones, "Mr. Tnlcott and Mr. Edward Bell aro not hero at the moment Thoy have gone out ot town oarlr, but If you will wait a moment or two I think I may bo ablo to com municate with people who will cover ths money your frlonds at tho Fifth Avenue Hotel have put up." Mr. Odell seated himself beside Capt Henry P. Connor and other well-known Wall street men while Mr. Edason wont to the telephone. In a few moments Mr. Edason returned to Mr. Odell and said: "JIr.Odell.we have friends who will cover this bet ot $20,000. but we would liko to have the money put up with some Block Exchange firm." "I have no objection." repllod Mr. Odell to a Stock Exchange Arm holding the money; " but what Is the objection to naming Hitch cock. Darling ft Co., proprietors ot the Fifth Avenue Hotel, as the stakeholders?" "I do not bellove thero will be any objec tion." replied Mr. Edason, "and yet I must consult our friends before I give my decision in that matter. Let mi telephone to them again." Mr. Edason did telephone to his friends, but back came tlie answer again Uiat Mr. Odell should be required to put up the $20,000 In the hands of a stock brokerage Arm which is a member of the New York Stock Exchange. There was some dlsousslon over this matter, and finally Mr. Odell remarked that Moore ft Schley would bo good stakeholders if that well-known firm would consent to hold tho money. Thero was a few moments' delay and It was ascertained that Mooro ft Schley would depart from tholr usual rule In matters of this character and hold tho money. Bell ft Co. mado out through Mr. Edason. a certified check at the request ot their client for $20,000, and. this check, together with twenty $1,000 bill.- whloh Chairman Odell produoed; was handed to Moo'le ft' Sohley.

BABCOCE'B BBYIBED FORECAST, Tie Is Now Confident That tha Ronsa Will Be Republican by from 30 to 33. Washington, Nor. 4. Chairman Babcook ot tho Republican Congrestlonal Committee to night gave out the following statement: "Since my last forecast ot the situation nnd probable result Republican conditions havo steadily Improved. I expressed tho opinion a week ago that the Republicans would elect 102 members ot the next Houso of Representa tives, giving them a majority ot 27 over all, I now reel justified in saving that the total Republican membership will exceed 102, and the indications are that It will bo at least 107, It is not necessary to philosophize or go Into details; It Is too near election day for that, it Is sufficient to say that in a number of districts whoro the lie publicans and their sound-money allies ap peared to be apathetlo until recently different conditions now prevail, all of which are encour aging. In my former forecast n generous con cession was mado to tho opposition on account ot what I then regarded as districts uimn which they could surely count I cannot now concede the opposition as many districts by seven or eight as I then did, while I am justified in In creasing the total number of sure Republican district by at least Ave. , "I may add that the present outlook Is that the Republicans will control tho organization of the next House ot Representatives by a majority of not less than 35. There are no In dications whatever that It will fall below 30. All that Republicans have to do now Is to con tinue their efforts and leavo nothing In their power undone for party suoeet until the night of eleotlon dar." FJlfE WEATUBR ELECTION DAT.

It was sold that he might return, but one of Mr. Murphy's personal friends tald list night that when ho departed on that oocatlon ho left for good. No Domocrat of tho State ot Now York Is more In terested In thlt campaign than Mr. Murphy, Ho IsacandldateforrenloctlontotheUnltedBtattt Benato. It had been considered highly prob ablo by Democratlo statesmen that Mr. Murphy would bo the, party's candidate, but It waa learned last night nt tho Hoffman House from responsible pcoplt that Richard Crokor. a little over a weok ago, mod It known that in cnto tho Domocrata capture the Legisla ture on Tuesday next lio, Mr. Crokor, it to bo tho candidate for United States Senator to aucceod Mr. Murphy. Thoro Is no mistake about this statement. It came from Demo crats in tho confidence ot Mr. Murphy and Mr. Crokor, and one ot them wont bo far as to say: "Whon Mr. Murphy ascertained Mr. Croker's ambition he loft for hit home in Troy, and ha has not been seen slnoo. To put it mildly, there Is a 'miff' betwoeu Mr. Murphy and Mr. Croker." Mr. Murphy and Mr. Croker have always been warm personal friends. Personal friendship, though, outs little ios with Mr. Croker. It is tatd.l when political ambition comes in. and Mr. Croker has thought for two or throe yoart that as the leader of Tammany Hall h Bhould be bidden to como up higher. Mr. Hill has gone to the United States Senate, and so has Mr. Piatt Mr, Crokor's friends arguo. and Mr. Murphy, too. has beon honored with a seat In tho Bonate, and then Mr. Croker goes on to tell hit friends that there Is no reason In tho world why ha should not be sent to the Unltod States Senate. Tho foregoing are the statements mode by Mr. Croker's friends tn tha political and social world. Richard Croker's management ot tho Demo cratlo Stats campaign has been of the usual Tammany style. He baa not It was declared last night, consulted Mr. Hill. Mr. Murphy, or Mr. McCarren. but has gone on his way, as suming lull charge and directing all mat tors, and as for Frank Campbell. Hill's Chairman of tho Democratic State Committee, why Mr. Campbell has beon no more consid ered than it he wore one of ths marblo tiles over which Mr. Croker has trod in tho Hoffman House, Mr. McCarren. Chairman ot the Dem ocratic State Campaign Committee, Is consid ered to be a thoughtful nnd shrewd manager. Mr. Murphy has never been looked upon as a campaign Idiot and Mr. Hill certainly has a reputation as a resourceful fighter. All of these people havo been brushod aside by Richard Croker, and whatever bofalls tha Demoeratlo party on Tuesday noxt it is the testimony ot Democrats on all sides at tho Hoffman Houso that Richard Croker and Richard Crokor alone Is responsible forbad tactical management. BomtTot former Senator' Hill's frlonds at the Hoffmaa House said last night that the tlmo is at hand when a second Demo eratlo organization in Now York should be established. This step is to be taken. It was declared, as soon aftor elec tion day as is convenient Richard Crokor does not understand. It was said, that the Democrats of tho Btato of New York will not follow his leadership. He Is blinded by his own telt-importanct. Democrats went on to say. but his awakening is abont to come. Tbo Democrats will receive tho election news on Tuesday night at Democratlo State bead quarters In the Hoffman House and at ths Democratlo Club. No predictions are In order. Richard Crokor on Tuesday night will ascertain whether his aspirations to be tho Democratic leader ot tbo Btato ot New York ore to be fulfilled or not, and the majority opinion last night was that they are not to be fulflllod. TANUANT O.V WARIXO'S CASE. Jenkins, ex-IIealUi Officer, Attacks Doty, Health Officer, for the Health Board. The report ot the Sanitary Committee of the Tammany Board of Health on Col. Warlng's case ot yellow fever was made publla last night Tho report of the ohlet Inspector of the First Division is appended. The Inspector's report relates that Col. Waring, on his way hero from Havana, sat In a northerly breeze on the deck of the steamer Yucatan on Sunday. Oct 23, until he became thoroughly chilled. It de scribes all the methods of Isolation, fumigation and disinfection employed after ho developed yellow fever hore and the quick cremation of tho body. The committee's report signed by Dr. Wil liam T. Jenkins, formerly Tammany's Health Officer, Chairman, begins with the statement that the period ot inoubatlon of yellow fever has expired, without secondary development It then attacks tbe quarantine offtolalg (Dr. Doty Is a Republican for allowing Col, Waring to land. It states that CoL Waring reported to the quarantine officer. Dr. Banbora, that hs had had "a chill, and thought that he had caught cold." and concludes that "a proper regard for the publio safety would have demandod tho de tention of CoL Waring under observation." As a matter ot fact, it has already boen stated repeatedly that Col. Waring reported himself as fooling all right to Dr. Sanborn, the auaran tlno officer who examined all the passengers ot the Yucatan. The examination of Col. Waring was as rigid and thorough as that of any other person on board, and. In consideration of the condition of all of them and of the fact that hot weather was over, all wero allowed to land. The Sanitary Committee of tho Board of Health, ot whloh Dr. William T. Jenklnt It Chairman, after alleging remissness at Quar antine, JUstlflod Its own omission to removo Col. Waring from his own homo by reference to tho general sanitary conditions and the cool weather. The report then praises Col. Warlng's sanitary engineering works In Memphis and In this city, jindortaken In conjunction with the Hoard of Health." It closes with a fling at the Chamber of Commerce, the Academy ol Medi cine and the newspapers In general. "Thn board further expresses Its apprecia tion," tho renort of Dr. Jenkins oonoludts, "of tho masterly Inactivity ot the Chamber ot Com merce and tho Academy ot Medicine, as well as ot the temperate attitude ot the publio press upon tho admission of the patient to the city."

While nothing but nn official Investigation will determine tho oxaot causo of tho accident tho general belief to-night Is that tho truss whloh supported tho Iron and concrete base of the felt nnd gravel root was toowoak for tho strain upon It, and It gave way when tho work men removed tho supporting scaffolding. Oscar Mlor. who was working In the base ment and constantly looking upward for fear the others might drop something on him, said that he saw a small part of tho centra of the roof glvo way and ho ran toward the corner to protect hlniBolf. Before ho got there, howovor. the roof, scaffolding and uppor gallory had all como down, nnd he was buried In tho dobrls. Ho anil others ot the Injured who wore ablo to talk ascribe tho acci dent to a laok of strength In tho root truss.

Roosovelt was mado yesterday In a circular Issued by the A. P. A. Tho circular Is long and bitterly attacks Col. Roosovalt because he has been friendly to tho Catholics. His record as a legislator is raked over to show that ho supported bills that wero desired by the Cathollo Church. It Is further asserted that when ho was a Pollco Commis sioner he had many Catholics appointed to the police force. The circular alleges that In all bis publla career, regardless of his duty at an American above all elso, he has ncvor exorcised that discrimination against tho Catholic Church that his Americanism should have lod him to exerolse.

In all the factories visited it was found that the workingmen are going to vote this year as thoy voted two years ago, against Bryanlsm. The workingmen will rote for Theodore Roosovelt and they will continue to vote for Republican candidates so long as the Democrats of the East urn too timid to break away from the leadership of tht Populists ot the West.
