WASHINGTON , Nov. 8. A message re ceived at the Navy department today from ; Captain Crownlnshleld , chief nf the naviga tion bureau , who la In New York , called attention to the report that thn Spanish cruiser Maria Teresa had been seen off Cat Island. The captain expressed his be lief In the accuracy of the report and sug gested to the department that the repair ship Vulcan , now at Norfolk , bo sent at once to make search for the derelict. The department acted at once upon the suggestion. A telegram was sent to the commandant oj the Norfolk navy yard , di recting him to place the Vufcan In com mand of Captain McCalla , the captain of the yard , and send It with all dispatch to look for the Teresa. A similar order was cabled to Captain Converse at Guantanamo - tanamo , directing him to aend the wreck ing tug Potomac from that place north ward on the same t | cat. It goes In charge 1 of J. E. Craven and the department be lieves It will be In the vicinity of Cat Island within thirty-six hours. The Vulcan was ono of the vessels which was towing the Teresa when It was hup- posed to have foundered and the department - , ment believes that It will reach the scene of the wreck In about forty-eight hours | | nftej1 reaving Norfolk. tlinnoo at .luvinsr ( he Ship. Cat Island lies about thirty mlloa south west of. the spot where the Teresa was last tccnand It Is nald at the department that It the veeccl did not founder outright within a very few hours after having been cut adrift it would almost certainly have fetched up on the' shoal beach off Cat Island , for the wind and tldo set directly on that beach. If so , the location Is much more favorable for saving the rhlp than the position occupied by It off Santiago , where the bottom was covered with rocks and tlio wreckers worked at great disadvantage. J Captain McCalla was selected for the taafc because of bU great energy and ability for this particular claea of work and the officers declare that If any man can bring the Teresa Into port ho can. It la the belief of naval constructors that the Teresa took water aboard almost al together throughout the decks and not through the hull , " as would appear from the first accounts of the loss of the ehlp. f These decks were rude temporary construe- / tlons and were entirely unsuitable for rough V wcatbeY. The fact that the reports Indl- \ cato that the ship settled by the head and i .that water ran Into the coal bunkers and "Ihenco Into the flrerooms goes to bear out the constructors' theory. It also tends to slve color to the report that the ship may not have foundered at once but have drifted , ashore on Cat Island. NASSAU , N. P. , Nor. 8. No Information Is obtainable hero which In any way tends to confirm the report in circulation In the United Statea that the crulssr Maria Teresa , which was abandoned in a sinking condition off Wattling Island on Novem ber 1 , lias been sighted aground off Cat Island of the Bahama group. The rumor that tbo cruiser has been sighted is dis credited. NORFOLK , Vfl.i > Nov. 8.
