WHAT I II I I. JIIMCI-VI I'Al'Citi
One of the two officers-who lost their
lives on the Maine was Lieutenant Jen?
kins, whose body has not yet been re?
It appears, according; to the Pater
son (N. J.) Call, that Captain Slgsbec
was suspicious that there were mines
planted at the bottom of the harbor
and he detailed Lieutenant Jenkins to
make an Investigation. The officer had
marie a preliminary report; which tend?
ed to verify the suspicion, and he was
still at the Investigation when the ex?
plosion occurred and he lost his life.
It Is believed that he has papers on his
person bearing the notes of tho sub?
sequent examinations, and these are
esteemed of the greatest Importance.
It Is for this reason, asserts the Call,
that the search for the lieutenant is
being prosecuted with such great en?
ergy, before the body falls into the
hands of the Spanish authorities."
w i: a nr. a s oi.i.u a .\ r PEOPLE.
Lieutenant-Commander L. S. Sobral,
formerly naval attache Of the Spanish
Loga I ion at Washington, has at last
left the country, but he dfd not forget
to lake with him full details or our
naval defenses, collected during his
connection with the Legation, which
connection, he simply used as a cloak
thai he might carry on the work ? of
the spy that he was. The Junta
Patriotin- Espauola of the United
Slates, with headquarters In New
Vori;, sent to the Spanish Minister ?>r
".Marine a dispatch regretting Sobral's
recall, find were informed In reply that
his return lb Spain had been ordered
"thai he may render her service."
The 'Phliadi Iphla Ledger is of the
opinion that Sobrul goes back to en?
gage oetlvcly In war preparations
against I he United States, lie says
himself Ilia I in the event of war ho
will probably command the Spanish
fleet in. American waters. Wo are a
very tolerant people, or the Spaniards
who stay here and wish him God-speed
would be invited to leave the country
they arc so ready to attack.
when the Spanish Government re?
called Sobral it was understood to be
because at' certain representations made
by this Government, and that the re?
call was somewhat in the nature of
disgrace to the oflicer, but it seems
now. according to the Spanish press,
that, he was recalled that he might
tender Spain service :Lt hatne. Things

In speaking of Spain's responsibility
for the destruction of tho Maine, the
Army and Navy Journal, which .Is
generally regarded as the organ of the
military and naval service, main-]
tains that if the ship was blown up
el tili r through <i. sign or want of due
dllllgence on th ? part of the authorities
at Havana. Spain's respohbilliy is com?
plete and Justifies the United States
resorting to drastic measures of re?
The Army and Navy Journal de?
clares that there Is no precedent of a
w.;.r vessel being designedly blown up
while visiting a foreign harbor In the
time of peace, and lays down these
principles as governing such a case:
"It is a principle of International
law that u ship of war admitted to
a foreign port is accorded t'he privi?
lege of extra-terrltorlallly. While
ordinarily this consists simply of
immunity from local jurisdiction,
yet by reason of the principles un
derlyhi?: Hie privilege of extra-ter
rltor'ality such vessel of war Is cn
41 lied b> the same immunity and in?
violability Which surrounds the
person of on Ambassador and his
hob ;. It becomes, therefore, the
duty i f ihn authorities responsible
for the government of the harbor
visited by a foreign public vessel
to use due diligence that such Ves?
sel is not injured by any violence
of Iho Inhabitants or by any hid
den means of injury known to such
government, such as submarine
mines, torpedoes or other concealed
nieahs of defense. And this duty
is intensified to the highest degree
when the fact is taken Into consid?
eration tthat foreign public vessels
.?f war being subject to the port
regulations must anchor where di?
rected by the local authorities.'*
This seems to be ihe correct view
of the matter, and from this stand?
point It a;.pears that even if It is
proven that the ship was not destroyed
by outside Influences Spain is* still lia?
ble to this country for the loss, because
if want of .an exorcise of due diligence.
BY WtlO.11 I^i ?Alt IH tT. A S. I D?
The (toe.-!ion lias often been asked
of late, what authority in this coun?
try has tin power to declare war
ngalnst a foreign nation'.' In IS51 Dan?
iel Webster, then Secretary of State,
wrote tlv.it "the war-making power in
this Government rests entirely with
Cangrcrs, and the President can au?
thorise belligerent operations only In
the cases expressly provide.1 for by
the constitution and the law."
?in another occasion Justice Crier,
delivering the opinion of the Supreme
(..'.tut in a matter which touched on
this question, said that "by the Con?
stitution CongiTss alone has the power
to declare a national or foreign war.
The Constitution, confers on the Presi?
dent the whole executive power. lie Is
bound to take care that the laws be
faithfully executed* lie is convm'an
der-ln-chlef of the at my and navy of
the United States and of the militia of
the several State.-; when called into the
'actual service of the United' States.
He hns no power to Initiate or d<
1 dare a war, either ag'alnst, a foreign
I iiatV'h or a ,1. up stic State, but by ihe
arts of Congress of February 28; 170.1,
and March 3, 1S07, he is authorized to
call out the mllltla and use the mill
ttiry and naval forces of tho United
States in case of Invasion, by foreign
nations, and to suppress Insurrection
against the' government of a State or
Ihe United States.
"If a war bo made by tho Invasion
of a foreign nation, the President 13
not only authorized but bound to re?
sist force by force. He does not Ini?
tiate the war, but Js bound to accept
the challenge without waiting for any
special legislative authority; and
whether the hostile party be a foreign
invader or Stales organized In rebel?
lion, It Is none the less a war, although
the declaration of it be 'unilateral.'
'It is not the less a war on that ac?
count, for war may exist without a de?
claration nn cither side. It is so laid
down by the best writers on the law of
nations. A declaration by one coun?
try only is not a mere challenge to be
accepted or refused at pleasure by the
