The proposal which Halbert believes

Cotton Steamer Bound from New York
to Copenhagen Taken Into Halifax
as War Prize
HALIFAX, Nov. 311. The Norwegian
steamer Sandefjord, which sailed from
New York for Copenhagen with a cargo
of cotton, was brought in here as a
prize of war. She is suspected of hav
ing contraband of war on board, and
it is reported she has balloon sflk and
copper stored beneath the cotton. Tins
will be investigated after she has
ilnckei, probably tomorrow.
The ship tonight anchored in the har
bor. The fact that she was so heavily
laden, it is said, first directed suspicion
toward her. A few days out from New
York she was halted by a British cruis
er patrolling the North Atlantic steam
ship lanes and an officer examined her
papers. Following the examination a
prize crew was placed on board and t?!e
steamer was ordered to put in at Hali

ASSOCIATED press dispatchI
SAN DIF.GO, Nov. 30 That 380 Vil
la soldiers were landed at Knsenada
this morning Horn the Jlexican troop
ship Manuel Herrerias, Was the word
brought to San Diego this afternoon by
the l'nited States cruiser Chattanooga
which followed the steamer into the
Lower California port to investigate the
threats made against the commander
of an American excursion launch off
the Coronado Islands yesterday.
According t' the story told by the of
ficers of the Chattanooga, the cruiser's
wireless operator intercepted radio
mes.sages last night from the Point I.o
111a station here to Admiral Howard on
the I', s. v San Uiego. This mes
sage told of the peculiar behavior of
the Mexican troopship, which threat
ened to fire on the ocean-going launch
Golden West off the Coronado Islands
on Sunday.
At the- time this message was picked
up the Chattanooga was only a few
miles south of Knsenada and Comman
der Senn decided to visit tbe Lower
California capita! to investigate af
fairs. On arriving there, Senn found
the Manuel Herrerias already in port
and discharging troops. The teamer
had on board two small cxeurs'ui
launches which had been kept ai th-Cor-niaiio
Islands by American firms,
(in inquiry, the American commander
was told the Manuel Herrerias had
gone north lor the purpose of landing
troops on the shore. of Lower Califor
nia between F.nsenada and Tia Juana
and that the .small excursion launches
were confiscated in order to laciinate
the landing of the soldiers. The plan
was given up. said the Mexican author
ities on accoant of the high sett which
was running at the time.
Short ftf coal ; nd provisions, the
Mexicans told Commander Seen they
uere compelled to put into Knsenada.
The Mexican; did not offer to explain
why one trooper on board the ship
aimed his rifle at the commander of
the Golden West and ordered him to
take his ship from Mexican territorial
waters, nor was it learned why the
troops had planned to land at a de
serted point along the coast rather than
at Knsenada.
The Manuel Herrerias first came to
the attention of the American steamship
men when she stopped tlie steamer
Carolyn off the Lower California coast
Friday morning and asked if nn
American warship was in the vicinity.
