An Answer to Cleveland's Threat
to Interfere on Behalf of
the Cubans
Key Wost, Fla.-If the Spanish
authorities had taken Senor
Ingle Fm-nandoii from the Ward
line steamer Vigilancia, while
that vessol was in Havana harbor
lust Friday, United States warships would immediately have
been ordered to Havana to en-
forco a demand for reparation
and war between this country
and Spain would undoubtedly
have resulted, For three hours
last Friday, the United States
and Spain were on the brink of
war and the threatening situation
was only relieved whon the Spanish authorities ignominously
backed down and allowed the
Vigilancia to proceed to sea with
Furnandoa on board. A letter
received hero from a correspondent In Havana, who is closo to
Consul-Gonoral Lee, gives a
dramatic account of tho episode,
According to the latter when the
Vigilancia put into Havana tho
Spanish authorities domanded
the BiiiTondot' of Senor Ingle
Fumandoi!, a Mexican, who was
on board the vessel, Tho Span
iards alleged thatFnrnanden was
not it Mexican but a subject of
Spain. Captain John Mcintosh,
of the Vigilancia refused to surrender Fiiriiiindw,.    Then  the
Spanish authorities told Captain
Mt'liitiirili that if tlio Vigilanciij
attempted In go .to sea with Fum
anclea on board she wuiild bo sunk
by   tho  gnus ,nf  Mum Castle.
Captain  Mcintosh  Immediately
laid llie iiiiilli'r before Consul-
('onoriil "Lob, who qqmplimonted
tlio captain nu liis bravery uml
told hlm to take tho Vigilancii)
in sen when Iio pleased,,   Consul
(liMiiii'iil Loo wus greatly enraged
at the throat lo sink llio Vlgilaa-
ciu, and is reported lo have said
to Captain Mcintosh i   ''If tin;
guns of Moro Castle sink your
ship, American warships will bu
bombarding   Havana   within  u
week,"    Captain Mcintosh returned  to the Vigilancia   and
Consul  Lee   informed  Captain
General Weyler that tho vesscj
was going to sea and if any attempt was made to take o'lF.ttrn.-
andez, ot- if ,tho vessel was fired
upon,  Spain must tako the consequences.   General Weylor immediately summoned the Cabinet
and while the council was considering the .matter the Vigilancia.
began  to  weigh anchor,    The
Spanish officers on board proles-
ted, but Captain Mcintosh said i
" Damn your objections, my ship
has been cleared and my consul
told me to go to sou,  I am going
and dare you to try and prevent
me,   Get off my ship," and with
that he roughly shoved the Span,
iards into the waiting boats, and
the Vigilancia, Hying tho stars
and stripes, started for the mouth
of-the-harbor, which is commanded by ),ho guns of Moro Castle.
All was excitement in Havana,
d-nci the quay and house tops woro
lined with hundreds of persons.
wjio  expected   tho Vigilancia
would be fired upon.    Consul
General Lee himself watched the
Vigilancia through a glass.    In
the meanwhile signals were being
exchanged    between    General
Weyler's palace and Moro Castle,
and in the latter place were signs
of great excitement,   Slowly the
Vigilancia entered the mouth of
the harbor and it was noticed tho
guns of Moro Castle were turned
on the ship.   The Vigilancia repeatedly signalled Moro Castle i
"I am going to sea," but no an.
swer came from the fort until the
vessel was in blue water and then
the Spaniards ran up the signal
which means "good-bye,"
Another expedition is undoubtedly off for Cuba. On Saturday
night the Steamer Cora, in tow,
loaded with 200 tons of coal in
sacks, left here on a wrecking
voyage, but it is now believed
she met the steamer Three
Friends at Loggerhead Key,
about eighty miles from here,
and transferred the coal and
obout eighty tons of dynamite,
Dr. Castino and C, Silan, who
have been on former filibustering
voyages in tho Thrco Friends,
arrived in tho city Friday very
mysterously and loft on tho Mas-
cotte Saturday night for Tampa,
A large crowd of Cubans accompanied thorn.
Whilo federal officers have
boen searching for the Dauntless
since sho landed tho munitions in
Cuba which wore taken on Palm
beach about ten days ago, that
vessel has beon busily engaged
in landing more arms and ammunition and men tor the insurgents, She made hor second
landing on Tuesday of last week
and it is said she is now on her
third trip to the island. The
Dauntless gtt the arms from a
small island at the lower end of
Turtle harbor, whore the Cubans
have established a storehouse for
supplies, Tho munitions of war,
medicines and stores are taken
to tho jsland hy sailing vessels,
It is also reported here that tho
tug Enterprise of Perth Amboy,
N. J., Captain Canovor, which
stopped at St, Augustine last
Thursday and was searched by
tho collector of customs and
United Slates marshal, Me has
instructions to go to the supply
station and load for Cuba, • A
revenue cutter is expected hern
in a day or two to break up the
Cuban storehouse.

THE   PUBLIC   SCHOOL.
Our Public School was opened
in August 1.808, in the old Hudson Bay building near tho Custom
House, with an attendance of ten
pupils, When it was found that
the building was too small Mr.
Galbraith erected on St. Mary's
street the present Comfortable
and commodious building, which
has been neatly furnished With
desks, maps, blackboards etc.
At prosont there is on the roll 28
pupils in attendance. And for
the past month the average at
tendance hits been 22, showing a
marked increase Since the Sohool peoplo in the vicinity of the scene
bills, which stop is considered
necessary in order to maintain
their compulsory circulation.
This nows is looked upon in certain circles as being likoly to improve the financial situation.
A detachment of about 275
Spanish troops has boon engaged
for five hours with an insurgent
force, estimated to number 2,500
men. The Spaniards captured
the insurgent positions at Tumba
Cuato, Solodad, San Juan and
Blanqttial, but having exhausted
its supply of ammunition, the
column Was compelled to return
to Campo Florida. - The country
was lirst opened, Through the
efforts of Mrs, Huckle a Subscription Was raised and a Bell
purchased and placed on the
building, Which is rung daily at
9 o'clock and at noon. The play
ground is enclosed by a neat
fence, The teacher Miss A.
Bailey is one df the oldest in the
province and the trustees arc! to
be congratulated in having se>
cured the services of such ttn
experienced instructor. I'lie

said to be without hospitals, and

Madrid i—Commenting Upon
the statement contained in a dispatch from Washington City that
President Cleveland intends to
intervene In Cuba in a manner
tantamount to tho recognition of
the independance of the insurgents, tho Imparcial declares
Spain ought to demand a full explanation* of the Washington
City government,
"She cannot brook such n
threat over hdr head," continues
the liripitrcial, oven for a single
day. By what right does the
United Slates doflno the tiim! for
Spain to sottlo a question of her
internal administration ? 11 nnisl
be affirmed before the wholo
world that the American govern'-
uienl cannot Impose any sort ot
tortus on ns,"
After donounding tho United
States " fictional neutrality,''
'•Tho conduct of the United
Statos will nrotiso international
Indignation; If Spain shoilid re
main alone in a conflict with the
Unlled Slittds, Spaniards, by
their own efforts, will know how
to mark the differences between
the noble defenders of tlloir own
ih-operly and tho Vllo trafllckory
at Washington City."

The National Matte Smelter,
1st 1805, and was bonded lo
Chicago parties, who neglected
to fulfill their agreement and the
bond was 'forfeited, since then
the parties have vainly strived
to make a now deal for the property. The Sherwood property
consists of four locations, E. J.
Hotloy is interested with Mr.
Sherwood. Assays from the
Badger and Red Mountain "the
prior locations" run from SaO to
$280 in gold. The next locations
were made by Thompson and
others, this outfit took up jftVeA
locations. These wei'e 'all tho
quart!! locations that were made
up to July 1st 1896. Then J-.
Huskies and others made seven
locations, Charles Elwood and
others made seven locutions, then
cume a general stampede and in
80 days over 100 locutions were
made, since then many moro
have been recorded. The ore is
a free milling quarto, assays,
average very high in gold—the
formation is slate and porphyry.
Pour townsltes have been
staked ,ulT. Surveyors ure at
work surveying claims, and parties are building u hotel.
The Thompson property was
bonded to u Mr. Seward, who
hits since rehimdcil to Montana
parlies, the lead is Hi Peel in
width on this property.
Wo loam Unit there nre four
parallel lends running through
the locations, development is
being pushed forward ni hipidly
as possibli
be traced through the country
for ft long distance. The ore is
said to be an absolutely free
milling quartz, the top of the
lead is generally covered with
red iron carbonates. Across the
divide on Weaver creek the same
formation is found-, and many-
locations havo been made at this
point. Hugh McQuade lias bonded several valuable locations on
this creek. Mr. McQuade will
loaVe for Helena the lattdr part
of the week, for the purpose of
making tiro necessary arrangements for machinery to work the
ore.
It is reported that tit Mast five
stamp mills will bo erected on
Perry and Weaver creeks next
s'ummer. Every indication points
to the fact that this section of
the Fort < Steele mining district
of Bast Kootenay will during the
coming season be one Of the busiest mining camps in the coun-
toy.
