MAY BE FLOATED
Hulls Sunk Off Cuba's South
Coast Worth Saving.
THE OPINION OF ENGINEERS,
First Two Columns of the Republican
OTHER OFFICES ADDED AS DISTRICTS REQUIRE.
All the Battleships Have Been Looted
Except tho Colon, Which Was Pro
tected From Vandals by Four Fath
oms of Water.
President T.aft's recent message to
congress asking that it be determined
whether tho Spanish nicn-of-wnr sunk
In the battle of Santiago thirteen years
ago should bo given away and Secre
tary Knox's opinion that the wrecks
belong to the United States have re
vived speculation as to tho possibility
of refloating tho ships. Engineers
who have studied the location of the
three battleships and two; torpedo1
boats think salvage is practicable and
would warrant Its expense.
Seven miles west of tho narrow
mouth to Santiago (Cuba) harbor lies
the first of Cervera's bottled up battle
ships, the Almlrante Oquendo. She Is
beached in the breakers of Juan Gon
zales, with about one-third of her hulk
visible above tho whltecaps. Long
ago she wns stripped of every portable
article by wreckers who braved a wa
tery grave for tho prizes she was re
puted to have held. They took every'
thing they could pry loose, including,
report has it, many thousand golden
coins from tho bhlp's safe. Recent In
spection has shown that tho Almlrante
Oquendo was looted of even the copper
rivets which held her fixtures in place.
Admiral Cervera's flagship, tho Vlz
caya, lies eight miles farther down
the rocky coast, as much a victim of
the depredations of ocean Juukmen as
tho Oquendo. A third of her form
breaks the land line, and it is believed
that there would bo comparatively lit
tle difficulty in recovering her, with
other ships of tho Spunish fleet, al
though she would be worthless, it is
thought, as a vessel of war.
May Find Treasure.
Nearly two hours' sail from the Viz
caya, at Rio Torquino, forty-eight
miles from Santiago, is tho third of
tho four Spanish ships, tho Cristobal
Colon. The Colon has been preserved
from the hand of the vandal by four
fathoms of water above her. Locked
in her safe there is said to be a largo
amount of money. Aboard her noth
ing has been disturbed slnco she was
silenced by American guns and nm
ashore to prevent her capture. Tho
water Is comparatively deep at the
point whore she Hps, and tho land
rises abruptly from tho sea, a sheer
precipice of considerable proportions.
Her salvage probably would bo the
most difficult of the three, engineers
The history of tho fourth vessel of
the fleet, the Infanta Maria Teresa, Is
well known. She was floated by Lieu
tenant Richmond P. Ilobson of Merri
inne fame and lost off Cat island, in
the West Indies, while in tow of an
American war vessel on her way to
an American port during a squall.
Engineers have declared her not wor
thy of a second nttempt at salvage.
The two secondary vessels of Ad
miral Cervera's fleet, the torpedo boats
Furor and Pluton, lie submerged not
fur from the harbor entrance. Tho
bafo of tho Pluton and easily porta
ble nrtlcles from her deck and cablus
have been recovered. The Furor is
practically undisturbed. Both He In
comparatively shallow water.
UNIQUE QUESTION RAISED.
Woman Forbidden to Vote Beeauso
Husband b Not a Citizen.
Judge Frank II. ItudUlu, sitting in
tho United States district court for
eastern Washington In Spokane, will
be called on to pass upon several legal
proDlems of international importance
when counsel for Mrs. Maude E. Black,
wife of James II. Black, a stonema
son, presents an application for a writ
of mandamus to force the clerk to is
suo naturalization papers for the wo
man. Mrs. Black has been declared an
alien, thongh she was born In the Unit
nii stntos and has never set foot on
foreign soil, Involuularlly becoming a
British subject by marrying a native
of Canada In tho United States several
years ago. The district clerk holds
that she canuot bo restored to citizen
ship until her husband swears alle
giance to tho United States. This,
Mrs. Black declared with emphnsis,
she will not permit her husband to do.
"I was born in the town of Weyau
wega, Waupaca county, Wis., thirty
eight years ugo, and my forbears
fought in the Revolutionary and civil
wars," Mrs. Black said. "My peoplo
liavo been Americans for more than
135 years, and yet I am classed as nn
alien. I hnvo never stepped outsldo of
tho United States, but the clerk of tho
federal court declares I cannot voto
until my husband becomes an Ameri
can citizen. I did not know I had
married away my legal rights."
