The steamers course vas to the northeast. The cruiser 'hoisted a flag and the steamer replied "by raising an English flag. The cruiser signalled the steamer to stop but without effect. As the steamer proceeded at full speed the cruiser first fired two blank shots, and then two solid shots. The commander says lie did not desire to hit the steamer, but merely to cause her to heave to. lie asserts that the steamer was but \.y, miles off the Cuban coast when the firing occurred. The authorities here have ordered that a, full in- quir3' be made into the commander's acts. Judging from Capt. Grossman's story nobody can doubt that the steamer was the Alliar.ca, which was fired on by a Spanish cruiser on March S. Say* 1t'» a Liu, NEW YoitK, March 19.—Capt,. Crossman, of the steamship Allianca, which is alleged to have been fired on by a Spanish gunboat, when seen on board the steamer Thursday morning in reference to the dispatch from Havana stating that he was within a mile and a half of the coast of Cuba when fired upon nnd that he had hoisted the English ensign, said: "It Is slmply'a lie. I did not hoist the English ensign, und had I done so the Spaniard would not have dared to Hro upon It 1 was not within a rnllo and a hair of the coast of Cuba, und according to the course I pursued could not have t°ne within four mlle8 of the coast," Will Dlakn Affidavit*. According to instructions received from the officials of the steamship company, Capt, Grossman is making an affidavit in regard to the matter of the [lag and the distance from the coast of Cuba. The captain is also to have affidavits signed by First Officer Corning, the purser, the purser's clerk and the ship's doctor, who were on deck at the time that the Spanish vessel fired. An affidavit is also to be made by the boatswain, who hoisted the American ensign by Capt. Grossman's order. The Ji'cws In Wmhlntfton. WASHINGTON, March 19,—The Spanish minister was shown the dispatch from Havana containing the report of the commander of the cruiser Coudo de Veuadito, und while the substance was of a very •gratifying nature to Minister Muruaga, he refused to talk on the subject. The statement made bj' the Spanish commander would, if true, entirely change the phase of the affair. It is very much doubted In naval circles that there can be any foundation for the statement that the Allianca hoisted the English cusig-n, and it is thought to be highly improbable that an*y steamer other than the Allianca was. fired on at that point on March Sand 110 report made so far about the affair. The report by the Spanish commander must settle the doubt which has existed in the minds of some of the Spanish authorities here as to the truth of the statements made by Capt. Crossman that he had been fired on by a Spanish cruiser, but the statement that the Allianca had raised the English flag has complicated matters to such an extent that no official opinion can be obtained from either side. S»J-» She Curried KilU-n to Rclx-Ia. NEW YORK, March 10.—The Herald prints the following special cable from its correspondent in Havana: "It is reported here that the Allianca carried 24,000 i-ltles south on the trip on which sho was fired *t. It Is also roportotl here that there wore landed on the eastern end of the Island Borne mon who were passengers on the Alllaa- ca. The men, it is reported, were taUon off the Alllauca in flaking smacks the nlk'ht preceding the llrlnfr." KtiportA Reteatment Abating. MADRID, March 19.—Senor Muruaga, Spanish minister at Washington, has informed the government by telegraph, that the excitement and intemperate utterances of a portion of the American press in regard to the Allianca affair is abating. President Cleveland, he says, has never shared the resentment which those papers have ex- -IEC rruun is ire Dire atnrpcnca. ID ccrar :n n piece of the general brutality and ruBluni that liolds Cubii. The thing is a relic of the middle sines. It is a disgrace to us that lies at our doorstep. It makes tnj- blood boil, for one. Of courso they will upol- OK'ZC elaborately aad discipline the ofti- cer.
