WASHINGTON. Feb. 25. There Is reason
to hcllcvo thnt some ot the ofllclnls of the
administration have been looking up the sub
ject of Indemnities , so as to lay the founda
tion of a case , In the event It should bo de
cided to resort to that method of settlement
for the Maine explosion.
There arc a largo number of precedents
which will aid the authorities In shaping
their action In this direction when the facts
ere fully established. While none ot the
cases show the fearful less of life sustained
by the Maine explosion , yet they Include
many Instancra In which the United States
hail adopted energetic measures to secure
redress for the killing ot American citizens
In foreign countries. In a general way these
methods of redtros have Included demands
for Indemnity , proclamations excluding the
war iihlpa of the offending nation from our
harbors , display of force , iionlntercourso ,
withdrawal of our minister , reprisal rcid
blockade. Some of these steps border very
cloaely on war , although they arc regarded
as the movements Just preliminary to actual
hostilities , and a/s amounting to a threat
that force will follow If reparation Is not
CASD MICE THE MAINE.
The capo of the Waterwlch Is considered
to bo the most annloqoue to that of the
Maine , should It bo established that the
Malno disaster was not the rtmilt of acci
dent. The Wntorwkh was a United States
8hlp engaged In 1855 Ilk surveying the en-
trnnre to ono of the rivers of Paraguay.
"Without warning , and by orders of Prcoldcut
Lopez of Paraguay , a force of troops opened
lire on \\aterwlcb , killing the mail at
the helm and wouullng othcio.
Intci.ee feeling was aroused In thCj United
StJtey when thu facts became known. The
president leportcd the facts to congress and
in his mesvsagp asked authority to make a
demonstration of force which would uisurc
tiiiltnlilo redress. In respond to this con
gress authorized him to "ust ! uuch force as
Is necessary" to secure ample reparation.
Accordingly , an armed lcot ! was hastily as
sembled on a bjalo : which was regarded as
renmrkablo for those days. The expedition
Included nineteen armed ships , twenty-five
heavy guns and 2,500 pallors and marine. ) .
Accompanying this formidable outllt were
civilian plenipotentiaries prepaied to make
the demands of the government and then
enforce them by calling on thu armed ships.
The expedition inadu a formidable show
ing In South American waters and Pic.sl-
( lent Lopez's government was awed into
coirplcto subjection by Its presence. The
American commissioners and naval olllcers
were received ut Ascension with much
honor and every reparation within the
power of the republic Was given , This In
cluded un abject apology , a sweeping dis
avowal ami $10,000-for the sufferers from
the outrage. As the republic was willing to
grant full reparation the naval expedition
did not exert thu force it was prepared to
iwo In cas o a refusal had been offered.
When the facts of the expedition were re
ported to the American congress the presi
dent -stated that the dispatch of this formid
able nival ik-et had had a salutary Influ
ence throughout the world and had con
vinced foreign nations that the United
States would protect the llvoy of Us citizens
with all the force at Its command.
The case of the firing on the United States
ahlp Cheiapeake by tbc British ship Leop-
'ard Is another case affording a precedent
as to thu government's mode of action. The
Chesapeake was proceeding to sea when it
% \aa hallod by the commander of the Leop
ard with a demand that Uritlsh deserters ,
t > ald to be in the hold of tha Chesapeake , be
ti.irrendered. The American commander ic-
fuscd to comply , whereupon the Leopard
'llrbt fired a shot across the bow of the
Chesapeake and followed this with two
broadsides. The American commander wot1
bovercly wounded , three sailors were killed
outright and many were wounded. Itelng
unprepared for action , It being a time of
peace , the American commander hauled
down his colors and surrendered.
CAUSES OUEAT EXCITEMENT.
Tremendous excitement prevailed In the
United SUtes over the outrage. President
Madl on speedily Issued a proclamation ex
cluding from American ports all Drltlsh war
Hhlps. Ho also caused energetic protests
and demands to bo presented nt London.
The Drltlbli authorities promptly disavowed
the action , recalled the admiral under whom
the outrage had been perpetrated , and
without request tendered Indemnity.sulilclent
to support the wives and families of all those
who had < bccn killed and wounded.
In a later case the American ship" " Promo-
thus was fired upon In the harbor of Orey-
town. The ship had declined to pay exces
sive port charges Imposed 'by ' the king of the
M ( qiilto country , then controlling the coun
try under a HrltU'h protectorate. The king
called on the Drltlah war ship i\-prcss to
tiufltaln his demands , and the Express
promptly flout a broadside into the Prome-
thus. There wore no persons killed , but th ?
United States made n pnmpt donund for
reparation , The Drltlsh gavoinment gave
this In the fullest manner and without qucs-
tlon , disavowing the act and condemning
the olllcer of the Express.
Dlnpbys of force weio resorted to by the
United States In 1833 agilnat Japan , and In
1S5S against Java , In the case of Japan ,
American sallorn had been severely handled
In Japanese ports , nd the native courts
failed to glvo adequate rodrers , A naval ex
pedition was sent to Japanec ? waters , and
this had the effect of oocurlng the fullest
apology , and also an ngicenicut by which
every protection was guaranteed to American
citizens and property In Japan ,
In the case of Java the secretary of the
navy sent a largo naval force to the waters
of Java to demand that the native trial
courts should glvo the fullest protection to
Americans , The expedition was , successful
In Its purpose and all the assurances desired
In 1S1D EOVCII Americans were killed and
about sixty \\oro wounded whllo they were
( being detained In the Urltlsh prison at Dart-
moor , This was brought on by a clamor for
rations , which was resisted by the prison
gimd. The United Slated demanded an ex
planation and suitable icpiratlon and the
prltlsh government complied by an Indem
nity for the support ot the families Of those
killed and wounded ,
There are quite n number of recent cases.

mitted by Chinese on German missionaries.
In that case the German government ac
quired as Indemnity a largo portion ot

valuable strategic ports ot China.
PAY MONUY TO ITALIANS.
The principle of money Indemnity for the
killing of foreigners has been recognized In
evernl recent cases In the United States.
One of these was the killing ot Italians ut
Now Orleans toy n mob. In that case , whllo
the United States did not admit the re
sponsibility of the federal government for
the act of a mob , yet Indemnity was paid out
of thu federal treasury as a matter of Inter
national comity and equity. Similar action
was taken In Indemnifying China for Its
subjects killed at Rock Spring.
In the case of the Vlrglnlus a largo money
Indemnity was paid. 'Demands ' by the United
States are now pending against Turkey for
the burning of American missionaries' prop
erty In Turkey during the Armenian out
break. There arc many Individual claims
agnln l I'paln , Including the Kulz case and
thnt of Dr. Delgado , n.ow pending.
President iHtichalianadopted the procedure
of reprisal In 1859. This Is n measure just
short of war. Mexico was charged at that
tlmo with assenting to spoliation along the
United States border. President Uuchanan
asked congress for authority to send a mili
tary force to secure Indemnity , as diplo
matic negotiations had failed to bring rc-
rlrcss from Mexico. This course was adopted
by congress , nnd the preparations for the
military reprisal soon brought about a satis

covered that they cannot have their bodies
brought to this country In cases where they
have already been Interred. This Is duo
to the fact that the Spanish laws forbid the
exhumation of corpses until the expiration
of the period of live years after burial. The
prohibition had Ha origin In the fear of
Infection from contagious diseases. Some
applications have already been made to have
bodies brought to the United States by .prl-

made to have It removed Is not apparent.

WASHINGTON. Feb. 23. A long and
Eomewliat exciting debate over tbo question
of river and harbor appropriations was pre
cipitated la the house today during the con
sideration of the sundry civil aproprlatlon
bill , It was practically agreed by oil these
who participated that there would be be no
river ciul harbor bill at thin session of con
gress , and this led Mr. Moody ( rep. , Mass. )
to attack the contract Items carried In the
sundry civil bill. He selected na appropria
tion of $15,000 for llockland , Me. , and his
remarks In denunciation ot 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 mid harbor bill , but this
woa not borne out by the vote on the amend
ment on which the debate rested.
Mr , Herry ( dcin. , Ky. ) succeeded In se
curing the adoption of an amendment In
creasing the appropriation for the Kentucky
river from ? 150,000 to $350,000.
Only four pages of the bill were disposed
The senate amendments to the army ap

Quite a dpbato developed on a motion
to strike out the appropriation of $133,000 for
work at Oakland , Cal. , Its opponents alleging
that no contract had yet been made for the
work and assorting that a river and harbor
bill was to 'be ' suppressed and a favored few
given appropriations In the sundry civil bill.
ATTACKS Jill. DINGLEY.
Mr. Moore ( rep. , Mass. ) made a sensational
attack upon a provision In the sundry bill of
? 1CO,000 for Uockland , Mo. , harbor , which Is In
Mr. nlngley's district. He cattl ho was willIng -
Ing to submit to economy and to high lead
ership , but for ono he rebelled against the
leidorshlp that gave nn appropriation to
Uockland , Mo , an Insignificant port that
could bo burled In lloston harbor.
Mr. Grcsvenor Crep. , O. ) , attacked the ap
propriation and declared If the house al
lowed these river and harbor Items to go
Into the sundry civil bill there would/bo no
liver and harbor bill. He was amazed , he
said , at the action of the appropriations com
mittee , and Instated that all the members
should bo on an equality.
Mr. Cannon replied to the attack , declar
ing that eoino of the most vicious river and
harbor Items ever reported came from the
committee when ho ( Gosvcnor ) was a mem
ber of It. Ho said that from 25 to 33 per
cent of the motley appropriated by a bill ho
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 breakwater and a
harbor of refuge Just such another as was
being built at Sandy Bay In Mr. Moody's dis
trict , and on which $30,000 hod been spent.
Ho Indignantly repudiated the Intimation
that he had over suggested or Intimated that
this appropriation should bo made In this
bill. Ho presumed It had been made on the
recommendations ot the corps of engineers ,
in the public Interest.
Mr. Catchings ( dem. , Miss. ) , defended the
action of the appropriations committee.
The Oakland harbor appropriation re
mained In the bill by a vote of US to 1C.
When the Item appropriating $400,000 for
San IVdro , Cal. , was reached there was some
debate , in the counso of which Mr. Cooper
( rep. , WIs. ) reviewed the whole history of
the protracted contest between San Pedro
and Santa Monica , characterizing It as the
most astounding cLapter In our legislative
hhtory. If there was tnythliig la the bill
that ought to < paEs , he salcf , It wa thla. The

of Detroit. Ho said tbo present tendency
was to decry the money making spirit In
nicu. Instead he would have such a" talent
encouraged and , rightly guided , It may prove
a great power to reclaim the world. Bluhop
Nlcido oald It the statistics of the wealth In
the hands of profeesed Chrlstlina were
known they would startle the world. Most
ot the wealth of the world Is In the handset
ot Christians. Referring to the small gifts
of the self-sacrificing people , the speaker
said : "Many of the charitable works of this
country are carried on by associated pov
Rev , A. F. Schaufrier , D. D. , vice president
of the New York City Missionary Tract so
ciety , was the next speaker.
The wise man saya " .Money nnswercth all
things. " Thla Is true. Money Is a won-
drom thing. In a true sense money la your
self stored up for tuturo use. A boy earns
$10 per week ; when ho Is pnld ana suits the
money In his pocket he pockets H week's
worth of himself. Where ho shall lose
this stored self Is a serious question.
One ninii loses hlm'clf In pictures and
li.iys $10.000 for one canvass. Another min :
loses himself , us represented In hl money ,
nnd lo , a hospital rises to bles ? mankind.
Another lots bis stoied power go abroad ,
and the missionary church I * the result.
Still nnother sct his peer loose In riotous
living , nml lo , ho uses himself to commit
suicide. All this shows what u mysterious
anil mighty force money Is. It Is simply a
device for storing your onn energy and los-
Iiw It again anywhere In the world.
"The Value of Prayer In Raising Money"
was the subject of Rev. C. II. Mnble's ad
dress. Ho Is homo secretary of the Ameri
can "Baptist " Missionary union. Mr. Mablo
said : "Tho problem la now to produce
spontaneity of giving ; the transition of the

Donald iM. Thornton , the fraternal dele
gate from England , spoke on the church mls-
florary unions of Great Britain. Ho be
lieved In the faith policy. Miss Mablo L.
Leach , a missionary to Ceylon , thought all
people able to pay their way should not ask
the mission for support In foreign fields.
Mr. Robert Wilder of the advisory board
spoke on the "Student Securing hla Own
Support. " The financial conditions now con
fronting the missionary boards make It
utterly Impossible to send out all the capable
workeio ready to go. Mr. F. S. Brockman , a
young college student volunteer who has done
much active work , especially In the bouth ,
made a remarkably eloquent appeal to the
students to raise money by Individual ef

NEW YORK , Fe'b. 25 , The Dutch tank
steamer Bremcrhavcn , which arrived hero
this afternoon from Antwerp , reports that on
February 19 , In latitude 13 , longitude 14 , 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 ' , but
no signals were displayed.
Mr. Bocande , the Now York agent of the
French line , said the description of the
steamer sighted by Captain Nlnnes fitted
that of the Li Champagne precisely. Ho was
of the opinion from the fact that no signal
for assistance was shown , that whatever
breakdown was sustained by It , was not
ot a serious character , possibly ono of the
cylinders had broken , necessitating slow
speed , Mr , Bocande explained that the en
gines of La Champagne , which Is a single
screw steamer , were triple expansion , with
three cylinders working ou 'tho same shaft ,
so If even two cylinders gave out tboro would
still be ono to drive tbo vessel along. Ho
believed the steamer would bo In port In a
couple of days.

"It lias been the dream of the citizens of
Helena for years , " said John D. .McGulrc of
Butte'Mont. , last evening , 'Ho luvo the Mis
souri river near that city dammed , that the
Immense capability of such a largo body of
water , something over 2,000,000 cubic feel
dally , might bo harnessed and put to use ,
principally In generating electricity and fur
nishing water to numerous establishments.
This dream has now been realized. About a
year ago a syndicate ot capitalists secured
permission from congress to dam the river
at Canyon Ferry , and work was begun at
once. Last Saturday the dam was Hooded
and next week will bo Installed what Is said
by experts to bo , with the slcglo exception
of the Niagara Falls plant , the most complete
ns well ns the largest electrical plant In the
country. Power will bo fuinltihod for two
of Montana's largest concentrators , tbo East
Helena smelter and the local street ear and
lighting plants , and that will take only one-
fourth of the power. Whllo the dam was beIng -
Ing Hooded It necessarily left the river bottom
below dry , and several miners got out their
gold pans and began active operations In the
river bed. In the thlrty-Ri.x hours that It
was dry some of them panned out as Ivigh
as ? 100. There Is now a movement on Coot
to dredge the river bottom for gold. "

"The British navy estimates are duly
planned for presentation to Parliament lu
March nt this tlmo of the year , " said Her
bert R. WIlcox dt No\y York , agent In the
United States for a Liverpool company , last
night. "Itio English Naval league has al
ready published Its views ns to the ship
building program for the coming fiscal year ,
and urges the laying down of six battleships
nnd a largo number of cruisers. This ques
tion ns to tuo number of naval cruisers re
quired for the protection ot British com
merce in war has never boon thrashed out
to the satisfaction of tbo public. The num
ber of vessels ot all types below the class
of battleship and above that of torpedo boat
destroyer is 194 , and It may bo unmed that
most of ttiese might bo utilized for com
merce protection. In this total I Include
the cruisers building and projected , and also
a large number which arc dr.U'iont In speed
and protection on account of their ago. If
war came tomorrow England might bo able
to send afloat ICO cruisers , ot which some
would bo the bast In Europe , and others ot
slight value nnd very limited ccal capacity.
From these a certain number would have to
be deducted to act with the battle squadrons ,
and It Is possible that others would bo re
quired for the purpose of convoy. It seems
doubtful , therefore , If England would have
a hundred cruisers to epaio for the trade

"That there Is 'something' In the cellar of
the humble farm house there Is no doubt ,
and It Is a very curious 'something. ' It
conies from the outer cellar and moves toward
the house In a circle. Hero It Is Joined by
another 'something. ' The house where thesjp

by cleared land and the stalking of tbcao un
canny objects begins every night exactly at
10 o'clock. While they nro abroad the
Bound of a flute , playing a sweetly pathetic
nlr , Is heard , The sound la not close lo
hand , hut seems to be dulled by the Inter
vening walls , as though the music was pro
ceeding from an adjoining room. The air
can easily bo distinguished and continues
for several hours. It la the same through
out."A curious feature Is that the music pro
ceeds to a certain ipolnt and then a false note
seems to bo sounded ; the ghostly musician
hesitates nnd attempts to strike the noiO'
two or three times , and , falling , goes back
to the beginning and plays tbo few bars
over again , stumbling at the same point and
repeating the nlr as before. After the musical
demonstration subsides to the ordinary
nightly noises the house becomes perfectly
quiet , and then without warning there Is a
bombardment that seems at times as It the
house would fall about the listeners' cars.
There Is not much variation In the program
except that on certain evenings there Is a
bteady sound llko water falling Into a
dipper. 'After this there Is a sputter and a
crackling , then the walls appear to part ami
ghostly fingers slldo up and down the plas
tering. This Is followed by the appearance
on these occasions of the gaunt figures In
white. Nobody has thus far been able to
explain the phenomena and the popular
theory la In the face of the evidence that
