I Spain and America. CRITICAL SITUATION. Reported Orders to American Troops. NEW YORK, Sunday. News that the Spanish court-martial at Havana has passed sentence of death on the crew of the American filibustering schooner Competitor, captured by a Spanish warship, has pro- duced much feeling in the United States. A telegram from Washington to the Journal says Mr Olney, Secretary of State, was summoned to the White House on Saturday, where he conferred with President Cleve- land. He then returned to the State Department and sent for Senor Dupuy de Lome, the Spanish Minister, to whom he explained that the President considered the Cuban question to be reaching an acute stage and insisted that the Competitor prisoners should not be executed upon the conviction by a court martial. Senor Dupuy de Lome endeavoured to justify General Weyler's position by the law of nations, but Mr Olney was emphatic in his reply and the Spanish Minister, express- ing solicitude, promised to cable to Madrid. President Cleveland has dictated despatches to Mr Taylor, United States Minister to Spain, and to the Consul General at Havana, stating that if the American subjects who had been condemned by Spanish court-martial are executed without a civil trial the act will be regarded by the United States Government as an unfriendly one. Mr Fitzhugh Lee, the newly-appointed Consul-General at Havana, has been ordered to hasten to his post via Tampa. The World says Mr Olney holds out that the only offence chargeable against the prisoners is that of smuggling contra- band, punishment for which is a fine and imprisonment. A telegram from Tampa, Florida, announces that Mr Connelly, the mayor, has received a despatch from Governor Mitchell ordering the 5th Florida Battalion to be held in readiness for immediate action owing to Washington advices regarding the position of the Government with respect to the Competitor prisoners. Of the five men condemned to death by the Spanish court-martial two are Cubans, two American subjects born in the United States, and the fifth is an Englishman, who has been naturalised as an American sub- ject.-Reuter. Latest Despatches. I WASHINGTON, Monday. Nobbing has been officially published regarding the death sentences upon the American prisoners at Havana. Satis- faction is expressed at the reported action of the Spanish Government in ordering the cases to be referred to Madrid. The subject will probably be brought up in Congress. -Reuter.
