has h.nl the 1'iTect of lomovlng much

is believed to be llttlo doubt of Its

Itorlallj this morning in the course of
a refetrnce to the denial given last
Friday by Baron ion Bulow, German
minister of foieign altaiis, through tho
Berlin correspondent of the Assoclateel
Press, to the it porta that Germany had
been Intriguing in tho Philippines
against the Americans, sajs: "It Is to
be regittted that the irresponsible en
thusiasm of fcomu Washington politic
ians should hae led to the use of lan
guage unnei'essarily offensive to Ger
many. It mav well be believed that
Aguinaldo and the insurgents would
have inclined to establish lelations with
Germany or with any other power, but
whatever views Get many may former
ly have held, it is certain that she has
not the least idea now of interfering
with the plans of the United States as
to tho Philippines.
"Bather than Involve heiself In such
difficulties she Is more likely think

Cienfuegos, Jan. 15. The entlic mili
tary depaitment of Santa Clara. Major
General J. C. Bates commanding, is
quiet. Twcnty-seen thousand Span
iards still remain in the vicinity of
Cienfuegos, but ono transport is now
leaving and twelve otheis are expected
to arrle at an early day. It Is im
probable, howeser, that the evacuation
will be completed much before the
middle of Febiuary.
The Spanish tioops, who are thickly
quaitered in the warehouses and along
the wharves, swaim thtough the city
day and night. Their officers ciowd
the hotels. The soldiers are pooily fed
and have had no pay for months. They
are quiet enough, but their continuing
presence makes impossible a proper
cleaning of the town and prevents ac
tivity on tho part of the American ad
mlnliitiatlon. Cuban soldiers garrison the country
towns in the piovlnce, a well as guard
the plantations, whose owners in some
cuses pay each soldier $6 a month.
The behavior of the Cuban troops in
garrison capacity Is highly lecommend
ed. They observe discipline and main
tain pel feet order.
The Cubun majors and civil admin
istrators In the interior towns of tho
department are awaiting the advent ot
tho American authorities. In numer
ous eofles no communications have
reached them from the latter and they
are proceeding with their oidlnary
duties in default of Instructions,
The customs receipts here at Cien
fuegos are lrom $5,000 to $6,000 a week.
The telegiaph seivlce of the district
is still In the hands ot Spanish em
ployes. Captain Hickard, United
States Signal corps, has made a re
quisition on Havana for operators and
the necessary Implements to establish
an adequate service throughout the de
partment, und many of the piesent op
ciatois will be retained.
General Bates, in making civil ap
pointments, takes lltnesa into consid

PAT WfLSON, St. John's, N. 1'., sea
man The sbip, which was of English build
and wot tb probablv WO.000, enteted
this port several days ago. She was
te) have loaded wheat under charter to
Epplnger & Co., ot San Francisco, for
Euiope. Friday the Andellna was taken
to the Em oka dock and all ballast re
moved and the hold cleared prepaia
totj to receiving cargo. She was then
lowed to nnchoiage several hundred
vards noitheapt of the St. Paul and
Taeoina Lumber company's dock, nt
which point disaster ovettook her. She
had out, according to the best infor
mation obtainable, tho staibeiaid an
chor, weighing at least two tons, while
to eltlui side of the vessel were at
tatheel the ballast logs used to keep
a hhlp uptight during the nbsentc of
cargo or her ballast.
The ship was riding easily when the
skippers of other vessels nnchoicd In
the bav. retired for the night. When
da light dawned no signs of the An
dellna weie possible. Over the spot
where tho ship lode at anchor the night
beforo only a danger signal buoy lamp
was visible. When the absence of the
ship was diseoveied. Captain Doty and
Captain But lev took the tug Fairfield
und made an investigation, nnd It was
soon determined bejond possibility of
doubt that the ship had gone to the
bottom. Ono of the baltast logs was
found. To this dangled part of the
chain by which it was originally fast
ened to the Ill-fated ship. In addition,
one of the life-boats1, a mattress with
the name of the ship on It nnd several
oars wete found Beyond this, no
wieckage has been diseoveied. As all
on board perished, only surmises as to
the cause of the disaster were obtain
able. Judging from indications, shipping
men say that the ballast log found
was from the port sldo of the vessel.
The ship, according to all account,
was headed in a southetly direction, or
toward the head of the bay, at the time
the gale swept down the sound. The
heavy winds caused the ship to strain
on the chains, making the log on the
weather side taut and give a tendency
to lift the log fiom the water, but the
strain was too great for one of the
chains and It snapped, This released
the towering craft from the greater re
straint on the weather side nnd she
lifted with tho wind, and there being
little restraint from the other end of
the log, raised It enough to allow
the mooring chain to slip off The
ship freed from ballast and floating
like a chip, caieened under the pres
suie of the heavy gale, shipping great
eiunnimes oi water, filling completely
the hold and forecastle, causing her to
capsize and sink.
The situation was further aggravat
ed by the fact thnt the tides were
Just setting in nt the time the ship !s
supposed to havo gone down. This,
in all piobablllty, forced the stern of
the vessel around and exposed the
bioadside to the gale's fury.
Late this afternoon the vessel was
located She lays on her broadside un
der 23 fathoniis of water close to the
spot wheie she had been anchored.
The vessel will probably be raised,
and the bodies of the dead sailois re
covered. When the Andellna enteied this, port
she was manned by a ciew of neaily
