Havana. Feb. 23?(Via Key West,
Fla.), Feb. 23?The situation, which
may be changed at any moment by
Tresh discoveries, may be summed up,
when this dispatch ls> sent, this after?
noon, substantially as follows:
The divers httving discovered cases
of brown Hexagonal powder for the
ton Inch guns unextploded, and be?
lieving also that others unexploded will
be found in the ten Inch magazine on
the stm'hoard side forward, the con?
viction grows that this magazine did
not blow up. If this be so, and many
have insisted from the first that it is,
the further conviction Is forced that
the explosion which wrecked the Maine
come from the outside on the port bow.
As previously wired, the main por?
tion of the wreck, as seen from above
and noted below, was blown to star?
board. The highest American officials
here nre confident that General Blanco
and the other high Spanish officials had
no knowledge, direct, or Indirect, of the
conception or execution of a plot to
blow up the Maine, if such n plot ex?
isted, but blicy believe the junior Span?
ish officers, who from the nature of
things, nre more conversant with mod?
ern explosives than their elders and
superiors, were nt the bottom of the
disaster. If there were any outside
It is pointed out that It W>uld not be
impossible to plant a mine of wot and
dry gun cotton near where a foreign
vriar Messel wrtis dbveted >to ?anchor,
such a wine communicating with an
electric battery on the shore. It is re?
garded as an interesting point that the
Maine, -fir the first time during her stay
in the harbor, lay at the particular spot
where sh? was at the time of the ca?
tastrophe, and, it is said, though not
officially verified, that the Maine was
the first foreign war vessel moored to
this particular buoy since the troubles
In Cuba grew acute.
All stories as to lax discipline on Che
Maine are without n shadow of truth.
On the contrary Captain Sigsbee was
complained of by some for the rigidity
of his rules and the stria:ness with
which he enforced them. Moreover, the
Maine has been In commission for
yfans and ne ver had a serious accident
until anchored in this ciuiet harbor.
WAR WITHOUT FIGHTING.
In re-ply to a question put by this cor?
respondent to a high American official
as to what the outcome would be if it
were prayed that the disaster was due
to an outside agency, the official In
"Sir, the American people could not
be restrained. I mean war. Still, 1
iou'bt whether it would benecessary to
lire a gun. Admiral Slcard could an?
chor the Iowa, the Indiana, the Massa?
chusetts and the Now York outside Ha?
vana harbor to prevent the Ingress of
the food supplies, without which the
city could not exist a fortnight.
Cuba Is a waste of ashes and desolu
lion. Even the hotels and cafes here
In Havana live from hand to mouth on
supplies brought from the United
"If Admiral Slcard demanded the
surrender of Havana, giving twenty
four hours for the removal of the
women and children, surrender would
rollow. The forts nre old structures
and could be demolished by a six
pounder. Such new guns as have been
mounted are short of ammunition and
have never been tried. If General
Blanco should decline to surrender the
Spanish merchants here, who repre?
sent .SO per cent, of the property and
pay 7f> per cent, of the taxes of the
Island, would compel him to accede to
Admiral Sicard's terms. As for the
volunteers, the men are for the most
part the- employes of these merchants,
and the volunteers officers are largely
their sons or their junior partners.
"It Is well to look these things In
the face. At the same time It Is well
for the Americans to restrain them?
selves until there Is some proof of an
outside agency of explosion, We can
afford to wait a little longer, seeing
that we have wailed so long. We could
not wall after It had once been proven
that the ?Maine disaster was the result
of a dastardly plot. Spanish officers
from the old country hold to the un?
accountable belief that theft- arms
would overcome us In a few weeks, but
the Cuban merchants have no such de?
lusion, and they would control the sit
uatlon. I fence I believe that ho shot
from a big American gun will be.
These sentiments really represent
those <>f the 'best informed Americans
here. Any moment, however, may
chronicle discoveries at it he wreck that
would change all this. A member of
the court 'if Inquiry who conversed with
this correspondent to-day, strongly de?
precated any premature expression or
evidence of res r.tment on 'the part of
the people of the United States until it
was proven that the disaster resulted
from some other cause than accident,
carelessness, e.r the visitation of provi?
dence. Certainly the members of the
tour: of inquiry, cool, experienced and
Judicial, will not lose their heads.
One thing seems certain. If the Maine
was blown up by an OUtflldp agency,
th-- agent was a mine and not a ?'.or
pt do, as no torpedo known could have
produced such tremendous results.
