Chicago, Dec. 27. A special to the
Tribune from Havana says :
Tlis American troops were fired oa in
Havana tonight. The whole city is in an
uiroar,and serious rioting is threatened.
A detail ol company M, Tenth regular

riot which broke out on Bombay street
at 6 o'clock this evening waa fired upon.
The resulars returned the fire and sent
volley after "volley into the crowd of
rioters as they fled out of the street.
Two Spanish sailors were wounded and
a Spanish marine was killed by the
Americans. A number of other persons,
whose names could not be secured, were
also wounded in the melee which caased
the Interference of the American troops.
Three Cubans were fatally injured. Sev

known how seriously. The Cubans f.ho

Jose Delores, a mulatto, shot through

Pedro Males shot in the groin.

In the small riots that ocenrred in va
rious parts of the city today 12 persons
were wounded, several fatally.
A Spanish soldier, marching with his
company to the wharf, attempted to pull
down a Cuban flag and an American
flag over the door at 108 Pan Lasaro
street. This started the fight. The
Rieniarda were fired on from the house
tops and windows. They returned the
fire, riddlina the front of the buildings
with bullets. The soldier who attempted
to take down the flag fell on the steps of
a bouse, bleeding from wounds in the
head and shoulder. The Spanish sol-

tii withdrawal of tile Spaniards was doe
to the appearance of an American of

hands of the Americana. The Span

Dossession of the strip of ground between
the. Piado and the port, but their sol
diers have been withdrawn to witkin a
few blocks of the port.
Three companies of the Tenth regular

Chicaoo. Dec. 2fl. A sensored special
cable to the Tribune from Havana says:
Rioting began at Montserrat tonight .
A battalion of Spanlnh troops hurried
from the barracks on the Prado to Gall-
ano street, the dividing line between
Cuban and Spanish territory.
Order was restored, but in the firing
which occurred before the troops ar
rived, an 8-year-old Cuban child was
killed by a stray bullet.
Spanish territory in the New World is
now limited to a narrow strip of land
between Havana harbor and Calianl
street. The flags of Cuba libra and the
United States are waving within two
blocks of the Prsdo, a great boulevard
which runs through the center of Ha
vana. Montserrat having been evacuated,
the place was alive today with Cubans
and people from tbe United States. The
scene enacted at Cerro and Vedado last
week snd Jesus del Monte yesterday,
was related at Montserrat. There was
even a greater demonstration, for Mont
serrat come almost to the city. Some
of the flags leaped acrosa the dividing
line and waved cn the Spanish side.
The calibration which waa begun on
Chriatmas night May reached its height,
Crowds of men and women waving Cu
ban and American flags and carrying
branches ot trees, paraded the streets
shouting and singing. Many Americans
went over to see the demonstration.
They did not remain long. Owing to
tbe intense enthusiasm, the populace
Insisted on kissing the "brave Ameri-
nnnfl. whether thev wanted to be
kissed or not.
Several affrays took place between the
SDanish residents and the Cubans. A
ffrocerv-keener on Oquendo Streets re
fused to pnt out the Cuban colors, and
was almost beaten to death with sticks
As eveoine came on, the demonstration
became noisier than ever, as many of
the negro- parading were drank ana
greatly excited. The Americana became
fearful of another clash with the Spanish
troops like that which ushered In Christ
mas dsy. Francisco Luinteso, a Span
ish volunteer patrolling the street near
the Prado, was fired st from a housetop
and kilted. A Cuban was killed in
snother part of the city. Half doxen
PnKana and Rnaniards were shot Or
stabbed in affrays about the city.
There was a fiabt between uuoans
and Spaniarda in front of the United
States Club at midnmht. Several ot tne
participants were badly cut with mach-
etea. Many American soldiers wno
srere in town behaved so boisterously
that General Ludlow says he is sorry
that they were permitted to come into
Havana, and in future none will do per
mitted except on strictly military business.
Senator McBride has introduced a bill
appropriating $4000 for the purchase or
construction of a launch for the use of
tbe custom officials at Astoria. A craft
capable of giving a good speed and one
that will stand knocking about is badly
needed in tbe customs service at Astoria,
and Senator McBride's bill is intended
to supply the deficiency.
Madbid, Dec. 27. General Rios, the
Spanish commander in the Visayas, bas
teleirraohed to the government Irom
Iloilo, capital of the island of Panay,

My Dear Sister. Once more we are
in Rio. Arrived here at 8 :30 this morn
ing. We have kept our six pounder hot.
firing salutes. It is some sort ot a holi
day and we salute everything in eight,
ourselves included. As soon as we
entered the harbor we fired a salute of
21 gnns, with tbe Brazilian flag at tbe
mast head, and a fort replied. Then we
saluted all the different nations whose
flag Sew from a ship and each ship re
plied seperately. After dinner tne
Brazilian Dreeident came out in an anti
quated eide wheel yacht and all the men-
of-war saluted him. There were nve
Brazilian, two English, one German,
one French and tbe Iowa and the Ore
gon, all bangiug away at once.. It
sounded like a second Santiago. We ,
manned the rail and all the ships that
carried masts manned the yards. It
was a pretty . eight, with all the sailors
all around tae rail, hands on each others
shoulders, while on the yards the sailors
stood hand in hand.
Rio is very cool at present, in fact, all
South American porta seem much cooler
then when we left tbeni, but I suppose
that is because we have been In hot
weather for some time.
I hear we are going to Manil from
Honolulu. I hone not, fori confess 1
sm just a little homesick, and if w go
to Manila I can't come home before tbe
end of my cruise. Well, I guess I will
appreciate home and friends wnen I ao
get back. It waa all right until we got
a new captain, but now tt is a continual
round of qnarters and drill. Two years
more and it will be over and then home
again. The harbor is in the shape of a
horse shoe. At the entrance, which is
narrow, are two forts that look as if they
could sink any ship, but during the last
revolution here, a Braailian man-of-war
used to run in and out at pleasure.
There is a high rock at the entrance
and the city is surrounded by a chain of
mountains. The city seema laid out
without regard to streets, the houses
being set down wherever there is a flat
spot. It is very unhealthy here, so we
can't go on liberty, bat we are to wae
part In a celebration on the 15th and a
battallion may go ashore for exhibition
drill. . On tbe 18th we leave for Sandy
Point, Chili. We may see a little fight
ing there as that city is a bone ot con
tention between Chili and Argentine.
From Sandy Point we coal from some
small island near the equator and tnen
to Honolulu. I will write from Hono
lulu whether we are going to Manila or
Uov. 17. We celebrated Brasilian in
dependance day and inaugeration day.
At sunrise each of the seventeen ships
iu the harbor fired a salute of 21 guns.
The bay is surrounded by mountains
and valleys and they echo and re-echo
the reports 'till it sounds like a navai
battle. All the ships were dressed with
flags of all nations, running in a single
line from bow to mast-head and from
yard-arm to Btern, in double lines. At
"night electric lights were substituted for
flags. The Brazilian flag floated irom
.i, moat-head of the Iowa and the
American flag from tbe jack-staff. The
search lights were played on tbem all
evening. We have no night dressing
but we decorated with Chinese lanterna
A stage was erected on our forecastle,
