Havana Harbor Said to be a Dan?
Havana, Cuba, Feb. 21.?I have learned
from the highest authority that uo mat?
ter what may have been tee cause of ihe
terrible catastrophe to tho Maine, the
harbor ot Havana in and has been for
lonu time filled with submarine mines
ami torpedos. While this fact has been
suspected, but a few army ami navy offi?
cers have any dellnlte idea of the location
or number of these mines Before the
present Insurrection broke out v'.-itors
to the fortt?flcations, now closed to all
excepting the army, were informed that
a moft effective system of mines had
been planted anil that they could be ex?
ploded by means of electric connections
from stations on the shore.
~At the outbreak of the war tho greatest
secrecy was imposed upon those having
these mines under their supervision and
their presence was forgotten by the pub?
lic in general. When it was rumored
thnt a United Stales war vessel would be
stationed iu the harbor the attention of
one of General Weyler's aide-de-camp ?i
was called to the fact that all.of the large
shore batteries guarding the entrance to
the harbor could only bo directed aualust
an enemy in the open sea, and that if a
warship succeeded iu running past the
fort and entering the harbor the entire
city vuuld be at its mercy.
The odicer replied that the engineers
intrusted with the most recent loititica
lions ot the harbor had fully considered
ttds question and had arranged that if n
vessel ever did enter tho harbor she should
be blcwn up at once. This explains the
seemingly unprotected condition of the
bay and harbor. I am satislUd that my
information is correct.
All information about these n ine" was
so carefully guarded that* Lieutenant
Jenkins, the ill-fated intelliaencn odicer
of the Maine, \v:is really uncertaiuf as to
tbeir presence, and so expressed himself
to several friends in Havana
