terrific explosion, were ground together in
a c fused mass. Knowing this, there Is
little hop« that many of the bodies still
mt-.-ing will be found, or. if found, that
they will be in a condition to be brought
to the United State".
The officers of the British battleship
Hood today cabled from the island of
Crete, expressing deep sympathy over the
d.master to the Maine.
At the Spanish legation much Interest is
manifested in ths developments attending
the Maine inquiry ar-d the earnest hope Is
expressed that conservative Judgment will
not be influenced by r. ports which, by the
Spanish 1 g ition, are regarded as untrust
worthy. Mr. Du Rose, ar.d his staff, are
maintaining a calm attitude and are seek
ing to allay everything which might in
n.jne public sentiment.
Late tonight the navy department re
ceived two brief telegrams frotn Capt.
Sig.-bee at Havana. One related to some
routine matter of expenditures in connec
tion with the work on the Maine, and the
other Is as follows:
"I>ivers report more bodies in wreck.
Some in hammocks Involved in debris.
Probably not recognizable."
This dispatch indicates that the divers
have finally secured at lea?t partial en
trance to the quarters in the forward part
of the ve-s. l, where the crew were asleep
when the explosion occurred, and under
which were the magazines. One fact, that
the divers Wert* unable t > extricate the
bodies, shows the fearful obstacles against
which they are operating, and bars out
the belief that the work of submarine in
vestigation will necessarily proceed slowly.

V\ ill Soon Soil for Key West to Com
plete Examination.
HAVANA. Feb. 24—The court of inquiry
held its usual .•*.■* ions today Capt. Samp
; son reports that Chaplain Chadwlck w is
examined as to his personal experiences at
the tane of the disaster to the Maine, and
that the testimony was taken of the cap
tain of a British bark in the harbor and
the superintendent of the West Indian O .
Works acro.-s the bay at H-gla. both of
whom witnessed tho explosion. Mr. Rolf,
the British engineer of the floating dock
in th* harbor, wrote a letter to the court,
but. it I.h said, did not add anything mate
rial to what was known.
V the afternoon session, the divers were
examined more fully than before Their
tex'imony is taken from to day. "he court
ex pee;- now to tini>h here today and to
sad on the Mangrove for Key \\ est. where
the oth.r officers and m-:n will be e.xim-
Nelther the officers of the court of in
quiry nor the witnesses will give the
slightest indication of the testimony <>r
tlv* conductions from it. iinn
eiy that the men employed on the wreek
j h tve beer, warned to observe an equally
strict reticence.
This course is regarded as eminently
wise by the Americana and all intelligent
F anlsh officials, as there is no telling
what passions m ! gbt be aroused or what
evil results might be brought about by
tilklnir of the matter in the present
s' IT- of public feeling lr» Havana Thus

"I have no theories as to the cause of
the explosion. 1 cannot form any. An ex

to a court of inquiry. 1. with others, had
heard that the Havana harbor was full of
torpedoes, but the officers whose duty it
was to examine into that reported that
they found no signs of *ny. Personally
I do not believe the Spaniards had any
thing to do with the disaster. Time may
tell, I hope so.
"We were its i deli.-ate position on the
Maine, so far as taking any precautions
was concerned. We were friends in a
friendly, or alleged friendly, port, and
could not tiro upon or challenge the ap
