The General Opinion In washing-ton Is That It Was Not an Accident. Captain Sunrner, of the Brooklyn Navy Tarda, Is Suspicion. New York is Alarmed on Account of the Probable Arrival In the Harbor Today of a8panlsh Mao-of-War. A Dispatch From Captain Slgsbee Olvrs Details of the Situation, but Does Not Tell How the Explosion Occurred. Washington, February 16. The government is intense. y interested this morning over tne news irom na- vana that tne oattiesnip iuaia oiew up at 9:40 last night, .destroying the vessel and kilting over-100 sailors. All manner of rumors are current and the declaration is openly 'made that the disaster was not an accident. A dis- natuh boat was ordered to steam Xrom Key West to Havana at 7 o'clock thi morning. The arnroreo cruxeers r em and Mangrove railed at 3 o'clock. Cap tain Sigsbee cabled Secretary Loog this morning asking especially that no warship be sent. ' t. The uecretary or tna. navy received ast night the following telegram from Captain Sigsbf e. "The Maine whs oiown up in Havana hrbor at 9:40 o'clock and destroyed. Many are killed and drowned. The wounded and others- are on board Spanish man-of-war aid a Ward ne steamer. Send ligh' hu tender from Kev West for crew an a few pieces of pqu'pment still above "-a'er. M- one r a other domes tnan inose upon bim. "KUOIIC opinion snouicr r tuspeaucu till further report. All officers are be lieved to be savt d. Jenkins and Mer ritt are not yet accounted for. Many Spanish officers, including representa tives of General Blanco are now with me and express sympathy. " At 11 :30 o'clork the pr sldent sum moned by telephone a special cabinet meeting to consider the destruction of the Ma ne. As the first cabinet officer arrived, the following telegram was handed to the president,oated Havana, 10:45 a m. It read: "Only a few officers are unaccounted for. The explosion, from all indica tions, was in tbe magazine. The sen try reports there were ' no ve3sels in the vicinity when the explosion occur red." After the cabinet meeting today Se cretary Long sent the f llowiog cable dispatch to Captain Sigsbee, at Ha vana: "The president directs me to ex press for himself and tbe people of the United Stat their pro'o nd pympa'hy with tte .-fficers and crew of tbe Maine, ard deoires that no expense be pared in providing for the survivors an-i in the cae of the wounded." Judge Day received the following dispatch from General Lee at Havana: All quiet, lireat sorrow is express ed by tbe authorities. Capta'n Sigs bee has telegraphed tne oetftiis to tne navy department "e is not yet pre pared to report on the cause of the ex-plo-ion." Consul General Lee's dispatch In forming the state department of thelos of tbe battleship Maine differs a little from Captain Sigree s report, uen- eralL'esays the explosion occurred well forward ur.der the mn 8 quarters, which accounted for the la-ge loss of life. There are proraiiy zuo sailors missing. AH officers are accounted foe except Jenkins and Me-ritr. Secretary Long, oi tne navy, receiv ed this dispatch from'. aptaiu blgsbee at noon: Advise sending wrecker? at once. Tbe MaiDe is submerged si' except the debris. Ttere is mostly work for divers now. Jenkins and Merrit are still missing. There is hope for their safety. Those known to De savea are so oi- Bcers, uninjur. a; and 18 of the rew. The wounded now aboard steamer?, in the city hospital Mascitte and hotel number 7 All otners wens oqwdod board the Maine. 'Total lo t and missing are zod. With two exceptions no officer nor man has more than a part of a suit oi ciotn- , ... All orneers saved are uninjurea. Damage is in the compartment of the crew. Am preparing to telegraph a list of the wounded ard saved. The Olivette leaves for Key West at 1 p. m. I serd bv her to Jy West the officers saved expect myseif, Waio- wright, Holman, Heneberer, Key and Holden. will send all wounoeo men to tne hospital in Havana." Naval otners tnis aisernoon oiuntiy avert that it was impos-ible for tbe Mai e'a macrxzine t explode witrout an ou'side cme. They ar p-o'ected in every way. Thermometers a-e at tached with automatic alarms to giv warninr of anv rise in the temperature. The suspicion of treachery therefore gains a firmer noio. l ne caomet om cers are silent, but are preparing for anv emertr ncv. There is a growing uneasine-s in official circles. The Maine is tbe first iron-clad in the world to be de-ttroved by an exp'osion An accident of less disaster has occur red in Eureptan warships, Out no mofiraz'nes hive been annihilated It it tated that a bill ill be intro duced in cooress today for a new bat tleship to replace the Maine. The disposition in congress at 'clock was to await d -flnit inform ation from the navy department as to cause of the Maine disaster. Nothing was done in either house. The Impression is spreading among hieher officials of the administratis that the Spanish had a hand in the ex plosion. The coast survey steamer Bahe has also been ordered 'rom Key West to Havana. The navy department has evidently decided not t risk any more warships in that barhor at present. At 11 o'clock the secretary of war is I holding a conference with the pre sident, the result of wbich is believed to be tbe issuing oi a statement re ouestinp that public opinion be sus pended until full reports of Maine dis aster are rereived. The Spanish charge d 'affairs Du Bsc called at tbe state department todty and offered the condolence of tbe Span iah government through Gen. Blanco for the loss of tbe Maine. New York, February 16. Captain Summer, in charge of the Brooklyn navy yard, said this morning: "The Maine could not have been blown up bv an explosion in her magazine. A rule of the navy department is to close the macaz'ne at sundown and it wouia not be possible for combustibles stored In there to nave expioaea acciaanuuiy Tr. war not an accident." The news of the destruction of tbe Maine caused tbe greatest excitement In New York. Few believe it was an accident and it is declared tbat war is row inevitab'e. Much alarm is Ielt that the crack battleship of the Spen Iah navv. the Vizcava. is expected to arrive in tbe harbor today, and there is not an American ship of her class nearer than Hampton Roads. A9 the time lor tne arrival oi tne Spanish warshiD Viz -aya approaches, New Yorkers are beeinninir to canvass the possibilities. It is generally recog nized tbat in ca-e of trouble tne viz- caya, once inside the io-ts, couio ao trreat amount of datuare to property, unless engaged -at once by ao American arsblp. Wltb a.UUU.wu people ana hundreds of square miles of buildings to shoot at, tbe Spaniard couio destroy $250,000,000 worth of property io a short time. Buildings would be ruin ed, fires would be started all over tbe city and a general panic would ensue. Grant's tomb, the statue of liberty, the. Brooklyn bridge? and tbe score or more of bandsnme buildings that tower to the sky in tbe lower part of . the city would be easy marks lor tbe Spanish "? - . . . ' ... On tbe other band, it is prooaoie that the New Yorkers are giving them selves needless concern. When tbe Vizcaya comes to New York she will have to obey the instructions oi tne harbor master in coming to anchor, and a nice place has been picked out for tne visitor tn tne llua&on jtttver. where she will be periectly safe. This is opposite One Hundred and Tenth street, and there is enough dynamite and nitroglycerine buried in the river t this point to blow tbe Spaniards to kingdom come at tbe first sign of ae ereaeion. The mine is connected by wire with the main-land. A similar mine, it is uodesVoi. has heen laid in.the Lower Bay, off Staple- ton, and tbe harbor master will Drive Vizcaya the choice of these anchor ages if she comes to this port unaccom- j pained by tbe Brooklyn or some other American warship. Flags on tbe city buildings were at half mast today. Many remarks of surprise were expressed that tbe arov- rrment building nags were kept at he top of staffs. Denver. Colo , February 16.

American Cruiser Will Keep the Viz caya Under Surveillance. A St. Louis Republic special from New York, on February 13, says: The Brooklyn will join tbe Vizcaya on the high seas or at Bermuda, and bear her company for the remainder of tbe voyage, politely showing her the way into New York harbor and waiting, politely, to show her the way out again when she is ready to leave. Tbe Brooklyn after coaling at St. Thomas will take a northeasterly course and cruise about outside of Bermuda, keep tog a weatber-eye open for the Span iard. It is understood that tbe Vizcaya will call at Bermuda for coal and for final orders from tbe government at Madrid In that case the Brooklyn . will assume the gracious task of show- ' ing ber tbe way to tbe port of destina tion, if it be an American port. The Brooklyn in all probability will touch at Bermuda anyway for orders. The Vizcaya may go to Porto Rico be fore completing her voyage and in tbat case the Brooklyn at Bermuda ould know just wbat to do. A report ached Washington tonignt tnat the Vizcaya had reached tbe Canary - Islands on Thursday. The group is nearly 3.000 miles from New York, and a divergence to Bermuda or any other West Indian port would make tne ois- ance longer. The Vizcava. therefore, will hardly reach American waters before the last week of February. Spain Asks for a Loan. London. It is understood that Spain recently applied to Great Britain for. assistance in regard to a loan, to wnicn the Marquis of Salisbury referred at the opening of the house of lords on Tuesday last, when he said that China was not the only government wnicn might want money.
