The Allianca incident must not be re peated. It matters not whether Capt. Grossman was within or without a league's distance from shore. He was in the regular route of vessels passing between the United States and southern ports. It is the recognized thoroughfare and must be respected by Spain as such so far as ships flying the stars and stripes are concerned. A message embracing the sense of the above, by the direction of Secretary Gresham, was Thursday cabled to Minister Taylor at Madrid, He was. instructed to call at once on the minister for foreign affairs and say that the route traversed i>y die Alliauca Is the one followed by the American merchant marine, and that this government believes that American ships traversing that sea path should be permitted to go unchecked. Muni Ho He is further instructed to say that this government expects that ships Hying our ilag will henceforth triiverse thul route unmolested, and that while the Allianca incident is reserved for future and separate adjustment a repetition of such interference with American commerce will be regarded as an unfriendly act. toward the United States. Spain Tuo Free. This action, while prompted, of course, by the Allianca incident, is taken without consideration as to whether Capt. Grossman was in the right or wrong. Spain has for many years boon a bit too free in her dealings with the .American flag and people, a ni! S;:i;reL^ry Gresham is determine'! -Jiul. huiiceforth she must iJViit :', im.-netMis and the stars and Ki.!-i)n:s with iin... very nicest consideration. Not Well Tnlcen. With regard to the statement that the Spanish man-of-war was justified in firing on the Allianca if she was within a marine league of Spanish territory, and especially if passing between ad- jacc7at Spanish islands, which statement is based on this country's position regarding sealing in Bearing- sea, the state department holds that it is not well taken. "liy way of illustration.'' said one of the department secretaries Thursday afternoon, "we are permitted to send our ships through the Sue?, canal, but'' been made here. It is thought" th'at since the Cuban coast is being watched by Spanish naval vessels, one of them fired on a suspicious vesse which did not obey its sig-nals to stop.
