WASHINGTON , Tcb. 25 There h rcison
to bcllevo that nome of the olHclaln ot the
administration have been looking up the sub-
jcct of Indemnities , so as to lay the founda
tion of a case , In tbo event It ahould ho do-
clilcil to roBert to that method of settlomeilt
for the Maine explosion.
There are a largo number of precedents
which will aid the authorities In fihaplng
their action In this direction when the facts
are full } established. While none of the
cases show the fearful less of life sustained
toy the Maine explosion , yet they Include
many Instances In which the United States
had adopted energetic measures to secure
redress for the killing of American citizens
In foreign countries In a general way Iheso
methods of rodieds lime Included demands
for Indemnity , proclamation excluding the
war whlia of the offending nation , from our
harbors , display of force , nonlntcrcourse ,
withdrawal of our minister , reprisal rcul
blockade1. Some of these steps border \ery
cloacly on war although they arc regarded
as the movements just preliminary to actual
hostilities , an I 0/3 amounting to a threat
that force will follow If icparatlon. Is not

honor and every reparation within the
power of the republic was given This in

avowal and $10,000 for the sufferers from
the outrage. As the republic was willing to
grant full rcpaiation the naval expedition
did not exert the force It wan prepared to
USD In case a refusal had been offered
When the facts of the expedition were re
ported to the American congiess the presi
dent stated that the dispatch of this formid
able naval lleet had had a salutary Inllu-
unco throughout the world and had con-
Mneed foreign nations that the United
States v.ould protect the llvoy of Its citizens
with all the force at Its command.
The case of the llrlng on the United States

WASHINGTON , Fob. 25 A long and
somewhat exciting debate over the question
of river and harbor appropriations was pre
cipitated In the house today during the con
sideration of the sundry civil aproprlatlon
bill. U was practically agreed by all those
who participated that there would be bo no
river ci d harbor hill at th'fi ' session ot con
gress , and this led Mr. Moody ( rep , Mass )
to attack the contract Items carried In the
sundry civil bill. Ho selected no appropria
tion of $15,000 for Hockland , Mo. , and his
remarks In denunciation of what he termed
favoritism approached the sensational.
Mr. Dlngloy denied that ho ever suggested
the appropriation to the committee on ap
propriations , or to any member of the com-
It was Intimated that there was a plan to
defeat all the provisions of the bill , so as
to force the river nnd harbor bill , but this
was not berne out by the vote on the amend
ment on which the debate rested.
Mr. Uerry ( dem , Ky. ) succeeded In se
curing Iho adoption of an amendment In
creasing the appropriation for the Kentucky
river from $150,000 to $350,000.
Only four pages ot the bill were disposed
The senate amendments to the army ap
propriation bill were agreed to without de-
Quite a dpbato developed on a motion
to strlko out the appropriation of $133,000 for
work at Oakland , Cal. , Its opponents alleging
that no contr.iPt had jet been made for the
work and assorting that a river and harbor
bill was to be suppressed and n favored few-
given appropriations In the sundry civil bill.
ATTACKS MU. DING LEY.
Mr. Moore ( rep. , Mass ) made a sensational
attack upon a provision In the sundry bill of
$100,000 for Rockland , Me. , harbor , which Is In
Mr nlngle > 's district. He nattl ho was willIng -
Ing to submit lo economy and to high lead
ership , hut for one ho lebelled against the
leadership ihal gave an appropriation to
Uockland , Me , an Insignificant poit tha *
could bo burled In Boston haiTior.
Mr Grcsvenor ( rep , O ) , attacked the np-
pioprlallon and declared if the house al
lowed Iheso river and bailer ilcms lo go
Into the sundry civil bill there would/be no
river and harbor bill Ho was amazed , he
said , at the action of the appropriations com
mittee , and Insisted that all the members
should bo on an equality.
Mr Cannon replied to the attack , declar
ing that eomo of the most vicious river and
harbor Items ever reported came from the
commltloe when ho ( Gosvenor ) was a mem
ber of It. Ho said that from 23 to 3T per
cent of the money appropriated by a bill he
helped to report had been worse than thrown
Mr. Dlngloy answered the personal attack
made upon him. Tha Rockland Improvement
ho said was not simply an Improvement. It
Included provision for a brcalcwater and a
harbor of refuge Just such another as was
being built at Sandy Hay In Mr. Moodi's dis
trict , and on whlcn $30,000 had been spent.
Ho Indignantly icpudlated the Intimation
that he had over suggested or Intimated that
this appropriation should be made In this
bill. Ho presumed It had been made on the
recommendations of the corps of engineers ,
In the public Interest.
Mr. Catchlngs ( dem , Mies ) , defended the
action of the appropriations commltlee.
The Oakland harbor appropriallon re
mained In the bill by a vote of IIS to 1C
When Ihe Hem appropilatlng $400,000 for

regiments of artillery. It was delivered by
Mr. Cox ( dem. , Tenn. ) . There was an
Informal discussion of the necessity of
these two additional regiments to man the
coast defenses of the country , and some gen
eral opposition was expressed by Mr. Cox
to Increasing the army. He contended that
In the event of war the volunteers could man
these guns Ho also expressed the opinion
that reporting this bill , which has been be
fore congress for several years , at this
particular time might bo misunderstood by
the country. Ho thought It might be con
strued as a direct action by congress In
preparation for war. On the other hand It
was contended by these who declared that
they did not 'believe ' that war was Imminent
that refusal to report the bill might also bo
misconstrued. The sentiment In the com
mittee , however , was overwhelmingly for
the two additional regiments to properly
man guns which are 'being- ' erected along the

NEW YORK , Feb. 25. The Dutch tank
steamer Brenierhaven , which arrived hero
this afternoon fiom Antwerp , reports that on
February 19 , In latitude 13 , longitude II , It
passed a steamer apparently a Frenchman.
It was almost stopped and was heading
northeast. It had four masts and two fun
nels. Regulation lights were burning , hut
no signals were displayed.
Mr. Bocaude , the Now York agent of the
French line , said the description of the
sloamor sighted by Captain Nlnnes fitted
that of the La Champagne precisely , Ho was
ot the opinion from the fact that no signal
for afcfilstanco was shown , that whatever
breakdown was sustained by It , was not
ot a serious character , possibly ono ot the
cylinders had broken , necessitating slow
speed , Mr , Docando explained that the on-
glnea of La Champagne- , which is a slnglo
screw steamer , were triple expansion , with
three cylinders working on the same shaft ,
BO if even two cylinders gave out there would
still be ono to drive tbo vessel along. Ho
believed the steamer would ibo In port In a
couplu of daja.

"It lias been the dream ot the citrons ol

Immense capability of such a largo body of
water , something over 2,000,000 cubic feet
dally , might bo harnessed and put to use ,
principally In generating electricity and fui-
nishlng water to numerous establishments.
This dream has now been realized. About a

lighting plants , and that will take only one-
fourth of the power. While the dam was beIng -
Ing Hooded It necr-ssirlly left the river bottom
below dry , and SIM oral miners got out their

another 'something. ' The house where th
manifestations are seen nlgl tly Is surrounded
by cleared land and the stalking of these un-
c inny objects begins every night exactly at
10 o'clock. While they are abroad the
sound of a flute , playing a sweetly pathetic
air , Is heard. The eound la not close lo
hand , but seems to ba dulled by the inter
veiling walls , as though the music was pro
ceeding from un adjoining room. The air
can easily bo distinguished and continues
for several hours. It Is the same through
out."A curious feature Is that the music pro
ceeds to a certain point and then a false note
seems to bo sounded ; the ghostly musician
hesitates and attempt ! ) to strlko the MOiO
two or three times , and , falling , goes back
to the beginning and plays the few bars
over again , Btumbllng at the same point and
repeating the air as before. After the miihleal
demonstration subsides to the ordinary
nightly iiolsr-8 the house becomes perfectly
quiet , and then without waining there Is a
bombaidmont that seems at times as If the
house would fall about the listeners' cars.
There Is not much variation In the program
except that on certain cvenlngB there Is n
hteady sound llko water falling Into a
dipper. After this there IK a sputter and a
crackling , then the walls appear to part anil

on these occasions of the gaunt figures In
