The latest report is to the cll'cct that ;i Spanish gunboat, Arced, fired into and sunk an American Kchoonur oil Puerto Padre. It is reported that the crew of the vessel, numbering- sixteen persons, perished with it. It is nut known whether the schooner had arms or carried an expedition for the Cubans. It was reported in Havana that the schooner had bailed from Key West. Inquiries, however, fail to show that anj r boat is missing or nnrcported, except those engaged in legitimate, trade. Many sailed recently for West India ports with full cargoes. .Not Corroborate^!. WASHINGTON, March IS.—The officers of the naval intelligence office who endeavor to keep truck of all foreign \viir vessels, have been entirely unable to locate any Spanish vessel named the Arcado, or anything like it, and so were unable to throw tiny light on the story telegraphed from Key West that a Spanish gunboat of that name had sunk an American schooner with a loss of sixteen lives. Ha» Jieon Hvurcl .From. W.A.sinN'GTO.v, March 18.—For a few hours Monday matters connected with the -Spanish incident were in a most ambiguous state. Bui just before 1 o'clock Monday afternoon. Secretary Gresham told a reporter that he would neither affirm nor deny the story that Spain had replied', -and he went on to say that he had made no statement that would indicate, thatan answer had been received. It was admitted that the department had heard from Minister Taylor. Spnln'H Jtcputod Answer. NEW Youx, March 18.—The Recorder publishes the following dispatches from Washington: Spain has replied to Secretary Gresham's demand. A dispatch was received Sunday night that, so far as it goes, is entirely satisfactoi'y to the United States. It is a response to the: last part of Secretary Gresham's dispatch in which he insists that ''immediate and positive orders be given to Spanish naval commanders not to interfere with legitimate American co'iimerce passing through that (windward) channel ami prohibiting all acts wantonly imperiling life and propertj* lawfully under the Hag-of the United Stal.es." ' That part of tho dispatch which refers to the liring upon the Allianca is reserved for future reply, after an in- Yi'stigalioi) by Spain into the circum- KLaiiivs that sin-round it. There is no' doubt in tin: r.iimls of the president' ami the secretary of state that this will receive "prompt disavowal as a.u un- authorised act," and Lha.t a, "due expression of regret on the part of Spain" will be forthcoming. Secretary (Jresliam communicated the substance of Spain's response to the president as soon as it had been translated, but he was unwilling- to give it out for publication. It is the belief, based on good authority, thai, in its ansiver the Spanish, government has given assurance to the' United States that there will be no more repetition of such offenses as the. firing upon the mail steamer Allianca. The reply of the Spanish governim-j.it is couched in courteous a.nd temperate phrases, and expressed the determination of Spain to avoid further causa for complaint on ihc part of this government. S-IMLIHJ.U Deputies Discuss Jt. M.UH:H>, March 1#.—Implying- to questions propounded in the chamber of deputies on Saturday Senor Alejandro Cin.iiscarU, minister of state, said the report that Minister Taylor, ncting on behalf of the United States government, had claimed reparation from .Spain _ was due the United States on account of the Allianca incident was true. The United States government, he said, at the same time demanded that American trade with Cuba should not be interfered with. He hoped the Allianca affair would be amicably settled. The United States government, he explained, considered the firing on the Alliance, to be a. violation of the principles' of international law. Minister Groiseard, in conclusion, said the Spanish government had ordered the fullest investigation of the affair to be made. The government, he added, vras willing- to agree to any settlement, provided Ifcc' principles of international law were not infringed upon and that no attempt •was made to prejudice the dignity oi the nation.
