Madrid Mav 10. There are evidences of growing popular excitement in Spain thp attitude of the United States j j w government to the question of the fill busterers captures on board the Com petitor. The riots and outbreaks ot popular hatred toward the United States at the time of the passage through congress con-gress of the resolution favoring the recognition of the Cubans as belligerents belliger-ents have not been forgotten, and the sentiments which caused them are but smouldering. The Spanish government has on all possible occasions expressed its appreciation appre-ciation of and satisfaction with the efforts ef-forts made by the United States government govern-ment to prevent, as far as lay in its power, the giving of unlawful aid to the Cuban insurgent citizens of the United States. But the widespread sympathy for the insurgents in the United States Is well recognized by the Spanish people peo-ple and the news of expeditions from the United Slates landed from time to time in Cuba creates intense irritation The news of the capture of the men on the Competitor was received with great satisfaction and rejoicing. It was felt to be the first opportunity that had been offered to make an example of those engaged in feeding the insurrec tion. The popular clamor for the exe cution is general and is likely to become ..urni, Little account is taken of the refined questions of treaty interpre tatlon involved in the protest of the United States government against the execution of the sentences. The action of the United States is regarded rather as an expression of sympathy with trie Insurrection and there will be a strong popular clamor to disregard it. The public feeling on the subject is fostered by the tener of the advices received re-ceived from Havana. Dispatches from there affirm that Captain-General Wey-ler Wey-ler is greatly irritated at the attitude of the United States on the question of the sentence.' It Is asserted that if the Soanish government adopts a contrary view owing to the representations made by the United States government Wey-ler Wey-ler wiil resign his position. Allegations were made in these Havana dispatches of very extraordinary conduct on the part of Mr. Ramon O. Williams, the United Sta'es consul-general. If these are not true, they are nevertheless, cer-tain cer-tain to add fuel to the fire of popular indignation in Spain. Mr. Williams' attitude, at-titude, it is asserted, is the subject of general censure in Havana, and is said to be very provocative. The story goes on to relate that the United States con. sul general shows himself everywhere In public places in Havana, using irri tating and menacing language regarding regard-ing the probable action of the United States toward the authorities in case the sentence upon the Competitor captives are executed. The Imparcial, commenting upon the hpTTnited States, says that a man accused of acts of piracy, admit ted before a court martial in Havana that the American police made a point of vanquishing when filibustering expe itinnc (mr Cuba were about to leave Key West. Gompers' request to affiliated unions for a vote, was carried by a large majority. A letter was received from district assembly 75, Knights of Labor, which controls the street railway union ef Brooklyn, alleging that President C. L. Rossiter of the Brooklyn Heights trolley trol-ley road violated agreements entered into with it by discriminating against union men. The district assembly explained ex-plained that it did not wish to inconvenience incon-venience the public by another strike, and asked that the members of the Central Labor union patronize rival roads. Peter J. McGuire, vice-president of the American Federation of Labor, wrote to warn the Central Labor union against John McLuckie, formerly burgess bur-gess of Homestead, Pa , who is conduct ing a fight against the Carnegie Iron ami Steel company, and collecting money f-om labor unions, the members of which are under the impression that he is connected with the Amalgamated Association of Iron and Steel Workers McGuire enclosod a letter from M.

The contention of the state depart- partment is that, irrespective of the Cushing protocol of 1877, the treaty gives the American citizen certain priv ileges that were witheld from them by the Spanish court martial. Notably they were obliged to rest their defense in the hands of a Spanish officer detailed for the purpose, and in all probability, not particularly anxious to clear his client, and was prevented from selecting their own counsel as guaranteed by the treaty Also it is said that the prisoners were not accorded an opportunity to procure pro-cure testimony in iheir own nehalf This is one of the privileges .nsepara-able .nsepara-able from a lawful and regular conduct. of the prosecution. Altogether the indications are that the state department is preparing to make a strong legal defense against the execution of the death penalty-case penalty-case of the American prisoners.

Now comes the Topeka To-peka man with a detailed story of the whole transaction, in which he supplies the missing historical data. Souther is 76 years old, has for the past eighteen years been a clerk in the office of the auditor of the Santa Ft railway, though the greater portion of his life has been spent as a printer and newspaperman. Up 10 the arrival of the duelling party at the Alton ferry, the storv he tells is verv similar to the oth er heretofore printed, but from there it differs widelv. "It was on the morning of Septembet ij, 143," says Mr. Souther, "that Shields and Lincoln arrivod at Alton. I was then a printer and reporter on the Alton Telegraph, and had received an intima tion of the coming duel, which made me anxious lo see it il possible. The dueling party took breakfast at the Franklin house, and about 10:30 in the forenoon proceeded to the ferryboat which was owned and run by a man by the name of Chapman. The boat was propelled by two horses, which worked around a windlass at one end of the boat deck, and I made arrangements with Chapman to drive these horses. Arriving at the opposite shore, which was a wilderness ef timber, a spot part ly cleaned was selected as the battle ground. Shields took a seat on a fallen log on one side of the clearing, and Lincoln Lin-coln seated himself on another at the opposite side. The seconds then proceeded pro-ceeded to cut a pole about twelve feet long, and two stakes were crotched In the end. The slakes were driven Into the ground and the polo laid across the crotches so that it rested about three feet above ground. The men were to stand on either side of the pole and fight across it. A line was drawn on the ground on both sides three feet from the pole with the understanding that if either combatant stepped back across his own line, it was to be considered a giving up of the fight. After all these arrangements had been completed the seconds rejoined their principals at the different sides of the clearing and commenced to talk in low tones. Along with the Shields party was Dr. T. M. Hope, of Alton. He wat very much opposed to the duel and reasoned with Shields for a long time. As a result of this talk several notes were passed between the seconds. Lincoln remained firm and said Shields must withdraw his first note and ask whether or not he was author of the poem in the Journal. When that was done he said he was ready lo treat with the other s'.de. Shields was inflexible and finally Dr. Hope got mad at him. He said that Shields was bringing the democaatic party of Illinois and himself him-self to ridicule and contempt by his folly. fol-ly. Finally he sprang tn his feet, faced the stubborn little Irishman and blurted out: "Jimmie, you g d flttle whip-persnapper, whip-persnapper, if you don't settle this I will take you across my knee and spank you." This was too much for Shields and he veiled. A note was solemnly prepared and sent across to Lincoln, which Inquired if he was the author of the poem in question. Lincoln wrote a formal reply in which he said he was not, and then mut'.al explanations and apologies followed. "I watched Lincoln closely while he sat on the log awaiting the. signal to fight. His face was grave and serious. I could dlsccarn nothing suggestive of old Abe, as we knew him, I never knew him to go so long without making some sort of a joke, and I began to believe he was greatly frightened. But presently he reached over and picked up one of the swords which he drew from its scabbard. Then he felt along the edge of the weapon with his thumb, like ft barbej feels of the edge of a tazor, stretched himself tojhls lull height, stretched out his long bony arm and clipped oil a twig from a tree above his head with his sword. There was not another man of us who could have reached anywhere near that twig, and the absurdity of that long- reaching fellow figting with cavalry sabers with Shields, who could walk un der his arm, came near making me howl with laughter. After Lincola had cut off the twig he returned the sword to Its scabbard with a sigh and sat down, which was always the forerunner of one of his inimitable yarns and I expected him to tell a side splitter right there In the shadow of the grave Shield's grave, 'After things had been adjusted at the dueling ground, we returned to the ferry boat, everybody chatting In the most friendly man nor possible."
