FRIDAY, March -4, - 1898.
Havana is quieter now than she has
teen at any time since the Maine dis
aster in her harbor. The first week's
work of the Naval Court of Inquiry is
at an end, and is now in session at
Key West Every bit of testimony to
be obtained in Havana bearing on the
Maine exnlosion. it is believed, has
been gathered. It is not probable
however, that the Court's report wji
be made public at present At the di
rection of Consul General Lee the
Court heard the evidence of several
persons as to the supposed existence of
a. plot against the United States battle
fchip 'J he evidence came principally
from Cubans.
In line with the plans of Mr. Mc
Kinley, Secretary of State BJierinan
yesterday, in conversation with sever
al Senators in Washington, said that
if the explosion which wrecked th
Maine was not in the interior of the
battle ship Spain would be held res
ponsible, and that an indemnity would
be demanded. Mr. McICinley still be
Jieves that the affair can be suttled
through the medium of diplomacj'.and
has declared himself opposed to war.
To meet emergencies wh'ch may arise
however, precautions will not be re
laxed. fcteps are being taken to
fctrengthen the defences of New York
city by submarine explosives. Ex
perts say the cily is now fairly safe
but rap:d fire guns are needed
and the supply of powder
low. Secretary of the Navy Long has
ordered the monitor, Terror, to pro
ceed from Hampton Boads to New
York Harbor and remain until further
orders. It is proposed that the moni
tor Amphitrite shall be placed to pro
tcct Charleston and Port Royal, the
Pur.tan to protect Baltimore. Wash
mgton, Kiclimond and Norfolk, and
the Mianhonomoh to protect Philadel
phia.
Measures have been taken to replen
ish the magazines of the meL-of-ivar,
and an appropriation which would be
sufficient to obtain a large supply of
coal has been asked for. It seems
however, that the 1,500 men requested
by the Navy Department will not be
forthcoming for a week or more yet
Justice Harlan, of the United States
Supreme Court, in a lecture in Wash
ington advised coolness in the pres
cnt situation. If the Maine disaster
turns out not to have been'accidental,
he said that "we will not hear any
more of North, South, Eastor West;
no more of republicans, democrats or
populists. We will hear only pf Amer
icans. "
El Tiempo, of Madrid, prints an ar
ticle pmrporting to have been written
by Lieut Commander Sobra', while
he was naval attache of the Spanish
Legation in Washington. In it he
says: "The United States covets the
naval supremacy of the Caribbean Sea
and the Gulf of Mexico; in the for
mer, to obtain absolute control of the
future Nicaraguan Canal; in the lat
ter, in order to have a free road from
tne Mississippi to the Atlantic. How
could they maintain a fleet in the wa
ters of Caribbean without ownine an
island which would serve them as a
base of operations?"
A special cable to the New York Iler
aid from Madrid says that a Ministe
rial atatement declares that the dis
aster to tne Maine, even if caused by
a malicious hand, is not a good cause
for disturbing friendly relations be
tween Spam and the United States.
The Ministers are jubilant over the
outlook, and are awaiting good news
from Cuba, the tenor of which they
already know. The news from Ha
vana published in the United States
causes much surprise in the Spanish
capital.
Gov. Bradley, having been officially
not.fi id in regard to the launching of
the battleship Kentucky, has issued
the following proclamation, which is
self-explanatory:
"Having been definitely notified
thtt the great battleship Kentucky
will ba launched at Newport News on
the 24th of March next at 10 o'clock a.
m. the people of Kentucky are now
reqiestel to show by their patriotic
action on that occasion that they are
not unmindful of the compliment bes
towed on them and the State.

"Governor of Kentucky."

his views on the Main horror. Con

The following editorial, clipped from

It is generally assumed that it would
be miinly a naval war, but this not
so certain, It i taken for granted
that Spain would not undertake to
land troops in the U.iited States, with
a view of penetrating into the interior,
because oi the practical certainty th.at
they would never get back. This
would not prevent attioks upon weak

o nveying troops across the ocwui in
the face of a hostile Ueet might pre
vent any invasion of Spa:n by our
troops, lint with Cuba the case is
dilfe ent
'ihe distance from Florida to Cuba is
so small, that a lew hours' steaming
would pertn't the landing of American
trojps on the island under tlu pi-jteet-i
n of cur warshins. The Kn.-minnU
uau aireuuy au wiey can do to hold
men own viieve against tne insur
gents, and tne coming of our troops in
any considerable numbers would make
tiiv; ium i iuu uut iu iiom lii.'tn. ix iva-
na would necessarily fall either as the
prey four fleet, assaults from the
land side or both combined. This ac
complished, the war would probablv-p-ocress
on the ocean until one or the

Sj far conjecture is easy enougli,

conn -ntratid at Il.iv.ma, or about th
coast o: Cub:i, to fiiriit it out with nr
ships, or to prevent the landin"- f

would do that. She mu'ht have the
sagacity to perceive that Cuba could
nqtbeeit'eatuatlv protected, and might
profer to order her navy to prey'on
our commerce, or attack such of our
seaboard cities as appear likeh' to of-
icr out a leebie resistance. Our for-
'n commerce carried -undor Hi..

the aggregate must amount to :i crnn-I
