American officer, who' attempted to board a-Gernlan' warship "to make Inquiry und establish its Identity" tn carrying out tho orders of Admiral Dewey. This admission was made today In the course of a further narrative of events glWn to tho Associated Press. The controversy between Admiral Dcn'cy und tho German admiral arose oer tho visiting between tho vessels of the varloim powers. He admitted there was certain Justice in Admiral Dewey's complaint as to tho German ships being constantly on tho move, although this was necessary and In no way meant to bo unfriendly. About He Withdrawn. The bulk of tho German Bquadron was about to bo withdrawn, said tho Gorman commander, when tho conflict nroso ovor tho right of visitation, und hethen de cided to retain his whole force there. Admiral von Dlederlrhu blamed Admiral Dewey for tho clash and Intimated that It would never hava urlsen it tho Amer ican commander had merely protested of ficially about two "trivial Incidents," in stead of firing shots In order to stop two German plnnanccs. One ot them passing the American vessels was held up because its flag was not showing plainly and the other whs approaching the Olympla nt night with a message and was not promptly identified. Feels Arllon Unfriendly. Tho Gcrmun admiral felt that Admiral Dewey's action was decidedly unfriendly. Ho sent his flag lieutenant, Von HlnUe, to make a formal protest against the ac tion ot tho MrCullough In halting the German cruiser Irene in order to learn Its Identity. This, said the German ad miral, was the Incident Incorrectly at tributed to tho Cormoran by Admiral Dewey. The American admiral retaliated, with an announcement that no ship, commer cial or naval, would be allowed to pass his lines. He" then announced his Intention of sending an officer on board every warship arriving tn the bay "to make Inquiry and to establish Its Identity." Tho word "inquiry'' apparently aroused the Ire ot the German admiral, who Identified It even today with a claim to the right to cross-examine any German commander. Threat of German. Admiral Von Dlederloha says ho dis cussed the situation with the British cemmander and told hlrn that he would shoot any officer attempting to carry out this order of Admiral Dewey. A substantial victory for the Germans was claimed by Admiral Von Dleder- Ichs in . the final settlement by which any arriving warship was to report it self to the American commander and afterward was required only to show Its (lag. According to the German admiral, his call on tho Spanish authorities was Jus tified by the facts that no blockade had been formally proclaimed. Bury Hatchet.' Before leaving Admiral Von Dleder Ichs and Admiral Dewey exchanged presents and cordial letters, burying tho hatchet and blaming the newspapers for the friction. Admiral Von Dlederich's said he hoped tho affair had been forgotten and Ad miral Dewoy action In reviving the con troversy In an erroneous statement was a matter of surprlso and regret to him.
