If tne Spanish authorities had
taken Scnor Angel Fernandez off the-
Ward line steamer Vigiiancia when
thai vessel was In Havana harbor last
Friday, United States . warshins
would have been Immediately ordered
to Havana to enforce a demand for
reparation, and war betweeu this
country and Spain would have un
doubtedly resulted. For three", hours,
hist Friday, the United States and
Spain were on the brink of war. and
the threatening situation was 'only
over when; the Spanish ignomlnously
backed down and let Hie VMhinpln
proceed with Fermandezon boasd.
Word from a Havana correspondent
gives a dramatic account of tjicepi
sode According to the letter, when
the Vigiiancia put Into Havana', the
Spanish authorities demanded the sur
render ofSenor Angel Fernandez. a
Mexican on board the vessel! The
Spanisli alleged that Fernandez was
not a Mexican, but a subject of Spain.
Captain John Mcintosh, of the Vigi
iancia, refused to surrender Fernan
dez. Then the Snanish authorities
told Mcintosh that if the Vigiiancia
attempted, to go to sea with Fernan
dez on board. '. shwould'be' aunic-'byn

intosh Immediately laid the matter
before Consul-General Lee, who com
plimented the captain on Ills bravery
and told him to take the Vigiiancia
to sea when he pleased.
General Lee was greatly enraged at
the threat to sink the Vigiiancia, and
Is reported to have said to Captain
"If the guns of Morro castld sink
your ship, American warships will te
bombarding Havana in a few days."
Captain Mclntesh returned to the
Vigiiancia, and Consul-General Lee
informed Weyler that the vessel was
going to sea, and If any attempt was
aade to take off Fernandez, or if the
vessel was tired upon.Spaln must take
the consequences. Weyler Im
mediately summoned a cabinet coun
cil, and while this council was con
sidering the matter, the Vigiiancia
began to weigh anchor. The Spanish
officials on board protested, but Cap
tain Mcintosh said in vigorous langu

the postofllec were nearly all saved.
The hotel is a total loss.
The flro spread slowly, owing to the
absence of wind, and thud every one
was ablo to save most of his goods.
Tho flro commenced at 8:30 o'clock
and raged until 10:30 o'clock p. in.
As the city lias no flro department,
it was hard work to light the flames,
