Ho it tho Spauiard Tried to Force a
Confession Story of Cuptaln
Now York, May 8. A dispatch to the
Herald, from Havana, eays :
The crew of the Competitor will be
tried in the arsenal at 8 o'clock this
morning. Five of the men were per
mitted to send a letter to the American
consul-general and to talk with one an
other last evening for the first time in
When seen by your correspondent in
prison they were singing and talking
Spanish. Captain Alfredo Laborde
showed deep sores in his wrists, which
were cat by ropes. He said :
"They tried to force me to make some
sort of a confession. I assured them
that I had told the truth from the out
set, and though they tried to make it ap
pear that I had knowledge of everything,
I was really a victim. I had a wrecking
license, permitting general freight and
passenger business and sponge fishing
along the Florida coast, though from a
distance special custom-house papers are
necessary. I arranged to carry 24 pas
sengers from Key West to Lemon City,
and we started at night. When near
Cape Cable, the leaders, Colonel Monson,
one Tagurde, and five others, came into
the cabin. They said they had ex
pected to reship for Cuba.
"They ordered me to sail about until
it came, bat I refused, and they seized
the boat, sayiDg:
"Well, we will do as we see fit.' '
"They had a pilot of their own " and
compelling as to be silent by threats,
they steered for the Cuban const. I re
ceived only $2 for each oian and never
thought that I would carry them so far.
When we reached the coast and had
almost unloaded the Cubans ashore, a
Spanish gunboat appeared and began
firing. I sent the mate to raise the
American flag, but the Spaniards kept
shooting at him until he turned below.
There was a quantity of dynamite on the
deck, and fearing an explosion, we got
into the water to keep at a safe distance.
The gunboat continued to fire at us,
though we did not resist."
William Golden, the mate, ia an Eng
lishman. Captain Laborde says he has
been naturalized, Onajillon, another
prisoner, is a native of Kansas. He
says be became a correspondent for a
Jacksonville paper and this was his first
newspaper work. He had been waiting
some time for a chance to secure a boat
for Pinar del Rio, he says. ' "
"Did yon expect to land in Cuba from
the Competitor?" I asked.
"I expect to land and transfer," he
v Captain Laborde turned and re
. "That is the only thing for which I
blame you, for not telling me in ad
vance." "I wonder what became of the three
others of the crew who were captured,"
he continued. "They are not here. I
fear they are dead. Only two of the
crew are here besides myself and the
The owner of the Competitor is Joseph
Wells, of Key West.

royal forces have lost in killed and those
who died of wounds ' or disease, three
generals, 29 field officers, 272 officers,
and 4892 men, up to the end of March,
1896, which does not include the heavy

Washington, May 8. In the senate

When the item for the deep-water
harbor at Port Los Angeles, Santa Moni
ca bay, California, authorizing contracts
aegregating $2,998,000 for the work, was
reached, White offered an amendment
for the creation of a board of three offi
cers to report on the relative . merits of
Santa Monica bay and of San Pedro har
bor. Large easels were brought in and
maps of the Pacific coast, placed on
them. With pointer in hand, White

The board of examiners, composed
largely of officers of the Philadelphia, has
been made up. The United States coast
survey steamer Gedney haB completed
the survey of the course.
Captain Minor Goodall says he will
try to make the Oregon excel the record
of the Indiana, her sister ship, which
gained a record of 16.67 knots. From
his experience with the Oregon Wednes
day and yesterday, be thinks she can
come closer to the 17-knot mark than
did the Indiana on her trial trip.
If he succeeds in beating the latter's
record the accomplishment will be ex
ceedingly gratifying to the officers of the
Union iron works, not so much on ac
count of the bonus of $25,000 for every
Quarter knot over the contract speed of
15 knots, as that it will prove a victory
for the Pacific coast over Cramp Bros.,

AN OLD PLOT.
But in This Case a Now Heroine Was
Young story-writera are apt to beg-in
a literary career by tellingr, in some form
or other, the story which follows. But
it must have taken areal genius to make
a cow the heroine. This particular story
is attributed by the Philadelphia Times,
in which we find it, to a Texas locomo
The engineer was running- his train
at full speed, when, he sa.ys, his atten
tion was attracted by a cow which
seemed to be coming' straight-down the
track to meet the train. He put his
hand on the valve and pulted out three
sharp whistles. .
Still the cow came on, bellowing at
every step, and acting altogether in an
unusual manner. As much from curi
osity as anything else, the engineer
slowed up and sent t he fireman ahead to
see what was the matter with the cow.
No sooner did the cow see that the
speed of the train was slackening, and
that the fireman was yoing to invest!--pate,
than she' turned and ran straight
back down the track, stopping now and
then, looking over her shoulder and
switching her tail as much as to say:
The man followed, and by and by saw
the cow stop short at a high trestle.
Going up, he discovered another cow
which had got herself fastened in the
trestlework squarely across the rail.
As soon as the animal was released,
the two cows lost no time in scampering
