that it was due to tho speculative

Whitney (live Ilia Opln Ion of the Outrage.
New York, March 18. W. C.
Whitney, ex-secretary of the navy,
sends tho following cablegram to
the New York Times today, under
date of Naples, in reply to a mes
sage sent him by the editor of the
Times: "In considering what
should be done concerning tho out
rages perpetrated by the Spanish
man-of-war in firing on the Allinca,
one fact should not be lost sight of.
It was deliberate and with full
knowledge of the act. Itiscertain
that no person in command of any
.... 1 1 1
war vessel in the world wouia do
ignorant that firing upon a mer
chant vessel of another nation on
tho high seas in time of peace
would violate the law of nations.
There is not a subordinate officer of
any man-of-war who is not
sufficiently instructed to know that.
It is, therefore, a case of willful in
sult to the American flag and
people. I do not recall so wanton
an outrage as happening to any
first class power m 50 years. An
apology scarcely wipes out such an
affront. The truth is we have
happened to come in for a piece of
the general brutality and ruffian
ism that holds Cuba. The thing
is a relic of thejniddle ages. It is
a disgrace to us that it lies at our
doorstep. Yon can gather what
my opinion is. What the govern
ment Ehould do is an other matter.
The president, in such matters, is
a safe person to follow, but as yott
ask my opinion, there it is."
