any plans for the area-way wall drawn

battleship Oregon was sighted off
Lighthouse point yesterday. For a
half hour she remained there and
practiced with her big guns. Several
shots were fired toward Monteroy,and
then she turned around and sent shots
in a northerly direction. The battle

rections. After an hour's firing she
came to anchor a mile from tho wharf.
She behaved admirably under tho
rapid lire of her guns.
Was the Trial in Ft. Cabanas
American Prisoners Allowed Neither
Counsel nor Interpreter!
Havana, Nov. 25. The Competitor
prisoners have been tried by court
martial In the fortress of -Cabanas In
spite of Consul-Gcneral Lee's official
protest, filed Just before he left Ha
vana. The exceptions taken by the
prisoners were overruled by tho aaval
courts. General Leo's note was pigeon
holed, and In defiance of Secretary
Olncy's Intimation of disapproval, tho
Competitor's crew and Mr. Melton,
the American newspaper correspond
ent, have again been tried by n drum
head court, sitting within the walls
of a Spanish fortress, where, accord
ing' to Captain-General Weyler's or
ders, the representative of tho United
States consulate may not enter,
The prisoners were allowed neither
interpreter nor counsel. Those partly
acquainted with Spanish wero com
pelled to interpret for tho others. So
quickly was the affair conducted that
Acting Consul-Gcneral Springer does
not yet know, It U said, that the case
was virtually closed November 14, on
which day Melton, Maza, Dr. Vcdla
and the witness, George Ferran, were
forced by Naval Judge Fernandez to
sign statements admitting their com
plicity in the filibustering expedition
which the Competitor is alleged to
have brought under Mcnson and La
bord to the Pinar del Rio coast, This
written evidence is now under consid
eration by the court.
Judge Saul said today that a decis
ion may be rendered at any moment,
It is expected that all members of the
party whoso American citizenship
has not been clearly shown will bo
shot. The bona fide Americans prob
ably will be sentenced to from three
to ten years imprisonment in some
Spanish penal Btatlon off the coast of
Tub Primaries. Republican pri
maries will be held in each ward of
this city on Saturday. So far no op

and none will probably bo held. Tick
