A. DEE? LAID PLOT.
Spanish Authorities Unearth an Insur
New York, April 29. The Herald
this morning Bays :
The Spanish authorities here, and in
Washington, have recently discovered a
conspiracy, which was formed by Cu
bans, to blow up a Spanish warship and
at the same time intercept a peninsula
mail steamer and rob her of a large
quantity of gold intended for the govern
ment troops ' on the island. The plot
further included the capture of the sea
port town of Nuvita8, and contemplated
certain demonstrations along the north
ern coastof the eastern Cuban provinces,
in order to precipitate a rush of troops
from the west and effect a weakening of
the military trocha across Pinar del Rio.
While the disclosure of the conspiracy
may not discourage the Cuban leaders,
it will require an entire change of tactics
to free Antonio Maceo from the uncer
tain position be occupies in the extreme
west of Cuba, and in the Spanish circles
it is looked upon in the light of a blow
to the Cuban cause. The plot originated
and was perfected in this city, with the
assistance of the insurgent leaders of
Cuba. The firBt blow was to be struck a
The revolutionary congress at Cubitas
has felt for some time the necessity of
seizing and holding a seaport town, and
has made several attempts to get pos
session of small towns on the coast of
Cuba. Finally the congress decided that
Neu vitas, on the northern coast of
Puerto Principe province, was "the most
available point. It is situated at the
head of the harbor of Neuvitas, which
can be entered only . through a long,
winding and narrow channel. - The
harbor is well sheltered from the eea and
affords an excellent anchorage. The
town is not strongly garrisoned. ' The
coast line peninsula mail steamer stops
at Neuvitas at regular intervals, and
when there are supplies on board, the
boat is escorted by a Spanish cruiser.
After long survey, the Cubans devised a
plan by which a formidable demonstra
tion could be made at Neuvitas, in order
to force General Weyler to send strong
bodies of troops to the eastern end of
Cuba. It was decided that it would be
possible to blow 'up a Spanish vessel as
she passed through the narrow channel
to Neuvitas harbor, so that the wreck
would completely block the entrance
and no other vessel could pass in to dis
place the rebels after they had captured
the place. ...
The insurgent president entrusted the
carrying out of the plot to one of the
Highest of all in Leavening Power.
members of the Cuban revolutionary
party in this city. The latter called to
bis aid an adventurous' young American
who began to perfect all the details, but
it was not long afterward that the Span
ish and American detectives were on the
trail of the Cuban plotters. Negotiations
were entered into by the Cuban agents
for the purchase of a Cape Ann schooner,
and a New England skipper was em
ployed to navigate her. ' A small steam
tender was purchased, which was to be
carried on board the schooner. The en
tire outfit has been estimated to cost not
more than $8,000. Those engaged in the
scheme were promised thaj, in the event
of success, $100,000 and one-half the
prize money found on board the mail
eteamer to be trapped and seized should
be their reward.
The schooner, the Spanish authorities
learned, with her crew, was to sail from
this port as a fieherman. She would
carry, in addition to 30 days' provisions
for four men, besides the crew, the
steam tender, coal, several small kegs to
ba converted into submarine torpedoes,
an electric battery and about 2,000
pounds of dynamite. The schooner was
to take the outside course. The pro
gramme was to launch the steam tender
at night, when near the Cuban coast,
and to work back and forth between the
spot and the schooner under cover of
darkness, using no ship lights. The
men who were to do the wrecking of the
Spanish cruiser, and the dynamite and
other material, were to be landed, and
concealed on a plantation near the coast
close to the entrance of the harbor.
From this plantation the Cubans could
reach the channel and lay torpedoes at
the only point where a warship could
pass, in less than two hours' time.
