Everybody censures tlio United States gov
ernment for Its dolny In performing a sacred
duty to Uu dead sailors. Great crowda col
lected thb evening along tlio Carloa III
drive. At ( list It was believed they were at
tracted to see Captain Gccoral Gonzales Par-
rado , who was out driving , but the a | lit-
sccra wcro not watching for ilio Spanish
deputy commandcr-ln-chlef. They were at
tracted by the forms of two men descending
from tlio Alfonso XIII hospital , all bandage- * !
and dressed In bright blue uniforms. These
wcro Martin , V. Webber , landsman , and
Thomas Mack , two of tlio Maine's heroes
who have recovered already and were oa
their way to the foiled Statco coast survey
Btcamcr Dachc to return home.
The following Incident Indicates the brav
ery and sufTerJngs of those who coaped with
their lives : In the first moments nfter the
explosion of the Maine Chief of Police Pas-
llcri went to the burn'ng steamer. Noting
the sailors fighting for their lives silently ,
Chief Paglierl remarked : "They cannot have
Buffered much because they doa't give vent
to lamentation * . " Many such are buried In
their graves. .

The coast survey steamer Bache , Lieuten

Captain Slgnbeo thinks Spain his a moral

KEY WEST , Feb. 23. The United States
court of Inquiry Into the lore of the battle
ship Maine In the harbor ot Havana on
February 15 began Its sessions hero this
morning. The officers and civilians hero
who believed the reports from Havana sayIng -
Ing that the court had already decided that
the loss of the Malno was due to treachery
have apparently changed their minds , for
today the universal question Is , "What haa
the court found out ? " Whllo yesterday ono
heard all around , "When will war be de
clared ? " Brought face to face with the
court , men realize for the firet time how
unlikely It will bo for the court to allow
any Inkling of Us conclusions to bo known
out of duo season.
An unusual bustle pervaded this llttio
town from early morning houra , The tor
pedo boat Gushing went over to the New
York end brought to shore Captains Sampson
Bind Chadwlck oud Lieutenant Commander
Porter. Lieutenant CommnnJor Marix , the
Judge advocate , who Is staying on the Island
with Commandant Forsyth , was already at
the federal building directing the prepara
tion of the United States district court ro'.m
for the sessions of the court of inquiry. A
outside . - watching
small crowd gathered eage.-ly
ing for developments.
Long before the officers were ready to go
to the court room the enlisted men saved
from the Ill-fated vessel wcro up and wait
ing nt their temporary homo In the array
barracks. It waa not known whether any
of them would be called , but all prepara
tions wcro made tx > that the court should
not bo delayed In Its work.
The court opened shortly after 10 o'clock.
Llejitenant Blaudin was the first witness.
Testimony will be taken according to Its
relative Importance and not according to
tlio rank of the witness.
Lieutenant Blandln was before the court
for about an hour. The naval officera sat In
Judge Locke's private chambers. No ma
rines were on guard , but nil the doers were
closed. The officers of the Maine lounged
around the big court room until summoned
to give-testimony. Those who 'Were called
as witnesses before the luncheon recess wcro
Lieutenants Blandln , Hood , Jungen and Blow
and Cadets Bronson and Boyd.
No enlisted men wcro examined at tlio
morning session. Lieutenant Commander
Marlx. who received the list of witnesses ,
said the Inquiry was progressing well.
The United States cruiser Detroit sailed to
the Tortugaa today with provisions for the
The court of Inquiry reconvened at 2
o'clock this afternoon. Lieutenant Holrnan ,
who testified at Havana , was again called.
Lieutenant of Marines Catlln gave his evi
dence and was followed by Boatswain Larkln.
Gunner Hill and Carpenter Holmes. The two
latter were on ehoroiat the time of the cx-
ploskii and could tell little 'of value- .
Captain Sampson t-ccmed eat'sfled- ' with the
day's work , but said nothing could be given
out. Ho held a short Interview with Ad
miral Slcard and then returned to the Iowa.
Chaplain Chadwlck and Lieutenant Com
mander Potter wcro taken c i board of the
New York.
Few know more thai * was known this
morning. An officer of the Malno who ha-1
been examined by the court during the day
talked with the correspondent of the Acso-
clated Press.
"I can't tell you , " ho said , "what line of
questicnlng was adopted , but the court will
find , I believe , that the Malno was blown up
by design , though I don't think it will bo
able to ascertain exactly how. The court's
findings will be based on negative rather
than positive evidence. By this I mean that
all of the testimony heard so far haa , bit
by bit , uraet the theories of those who think
the ex.nkolon was of Internal origin. This
negative evidence I ? so strong an ! so general
that I see no possibility of the court decid
ing that the cxploslon < was Internal.
The emly alternative , then , left for the
court , Is to fall back on evidence which
points to the lutentlmal blowing up of the
Maine. This , I think , will bo done unices
the court formulatea a theory of Its own or
declares that It does nat know how the Cla-
aster occurred , both of which conjectures I
think Improbable. "
As bearing on the value of the opinion of
the officer In qucstlcn It must be borne In
mind that ho was bcforo the court for about
fifteen minutes only and he has at all times
expressed himself as confident that the ex
plosion was not due to au accident.
Members of the court , when the substance
of the Interview was brought to their atten
tion , declined to have anything tu say. All
the high naval and military officials here
when asked crucial questions politely pro-
fofa Ignorance.

WASHINGTON , Feb. 28. ( Special Tele
gram. ) It Is understood that n party of
legislators will leave tomorrow afternoon for
Norfolk , whcro they will take John II.
Flagclcr's magnificent steam yacht , now ly
ing at anchor there , for a visit to Cuba.
It has become the proper thing to do the
Gem of the Antilles slucc talk of war has
arisen , and especially since EO much has
> been published regarding 'the sufferings of
the reconcentrados. Among those who will
make the trip are : Senator and Mrs. Thurs-
ton , Senator and Mrs. Ilurrows , Senator and
Mrs. Gallingcr , Senator and Mrs. Gray , Son'-
ator and Mrs. Money , Representative and
Mrs. W. Alden Smith of Michigan , Repre
sentative and Mrs. Ciimmlngs.
The trip will possibly consume a week ,
the design of those having the matter In
charge being to go direct to Havana and
make a short tour of the island. The pur
pose of this visit Is to personally ilnvcstl-
gate conditions as they exist , In order to be
bolter equipped when legislation presents It
self looking to the ending of the war now
going on In Cuba. There is nothing otllclal
In connection with the trip. The senators

guing as private
citizens , but will be on the alert to prop
erly weigh all that may .bo seen and heard
regarding the present deplorable situation.
Captain H. E. Palmer of Omaha Is In Wash
ington with a party of Sheridan , Wyo. , busi
ness men , who propose storming the secretary -
rotary of war In tlio interest of the re-estab-
Itehlng of Fort Custer , which , on recom
mendation of Assistant Secretary of War
Melklejohn , was abandoned last fall. The
party consists of E. Gillette , water commis
sioner of Wyoming nnd who located the
Burlington road through the section about
heridan ; II. C. Algcr , Cam Oofbutt ,
'members of the republican state central
committee ; H. A. Coffeen , ex-member of
congress ; George L. Smith , A. W. Hulbcrt ,
mayor of Sheridan , nnd W. D. Wclghtcr.
The members of the delegation siy condi
tions are perilous to settlers , an uprising
of Indians being among the possibilities at
any time. The Cheyenne reservation Is but
fifty miles away , whlio the Crow reservation
Is but fourteen miles. The troops formerly
at Fort Custer are now temporarily sta
tioned at Fort Shaw. In order to pave the
way for the delegation Senator Thurston and
Captain Palmer will call upon Assistant
Secretary .Melklejohn In the morning to ar
range a meeting. Whllo here the delega
tion will also call on the president and
present reasons for further extension of his
order affectlnK forest reservations. Sena
tors Warren Jnd Olark of Wyoming will co-
opcrato with the Sheridan delegation upon
both propositions.
There was a comic opera tinge given to
the proceedings in the house today over the
set-to between Shattuc of Ohio and Greene
of Nebraska ; and not In years have members
of that body enjoyed the situation so hugely.
Shattuc was making a speech in which ho
was extolling the railroad managers of the
country , when Greene .broke . Into the arena
with the pertinent inquiry If railroad man
agers had ever howled calamity. The fun
then began and by the time 'both ' gentle
men got warmed up fur and feathers fell
on all sides. Shattuc replied , tuif not to
suit the 'member from the Sixth , who said
that Shattuc had failed to grasp ( ho point.
"Oh ! I catch the point , just as I do every
thing else you say , " paid Shattuc , "even
If It takes a bushel tiasket to catch It. "
This brought a reply in kind from the
statesman from Kearney , who said railroad
managers never howled calamity because
they plundered the whole country. Then
Shattuc , using the same sort of an elm club
which Greene had used on several ocea-
Blcns , remarked that It was a pity Ne
braska could not send to congress a few
less calamity howlers , which set the house
In an uproar , Greene In the meantime tryIng -
Ing 'to bo heard above the din. Ho talked
about follows on the republican slda drown
ing out everybody except their own kind ,
when Shattuc got in a body blow by yelling :
"Why , a calliope could not drown you out , "
and Greene subsided.
It is expected that Mr. Klttrldge of South
Dakota will bo here this week , when a final
effort to secure the rejection of the nomina
tion of Charles T. McCoy as Indian agent for
the Cheyer.nes will bo made. Mr. Klttrldge ,
when he left Washington the last time , wro
confident that the nomination would be with
drawn , and the charges which were to be
filed against McCoy were consequently held
back. They have reached the senate , however -

prca'dent. Ho has no doubt of his confirma

statements In the form of charges which
have been filed against him' ,
Land Commissioner Hermen today notified
Inspector Greene to proceed to Rapid City ,

Mny OofloV Ilio Question , of Vonce or
WASHINGTON1 , Feb.v2S. . The State de
partment received the following dispatch
from Minister Woodford at Madrid :
Decree dissolving Spanish Cortes 1'ebnmrj
2(5. ( New Cortes m III meet April 25.
The dissolution of the Cortes has been ex
pected and It may bcv. attended with Im
portant Tcsults. The tivo parties , liberal
and conservative- , will now appeal to the
country , and on the result will depend the
political complexion of tbo ministry. The
Sagnsta ministry now In power Is liberal.
Its retention means much at the present
Juncture , for It was on the advent of the
Sagasta regime that General Woyler was re
called , the rcconcentrado decrees annulled
nnd the present plan ot autonomy put in
force. The policy now being pursued by
General Blanco In Cuba Is an entire re
versal ot that under the conservative regime
of Canovas and Ills successor and It Is felt
that the continuance of this policy Is no less
at stake than the ministry Itself In the out
come of the present elections.
Senor ilu Bosc , the Spanish charge d'af
faires , has not received olllclal notification of
the dissolution of the Cortes , but ho said
It wao expected , as the work of tbo present
Cortes was concluded. Under the laws forty
days must expire before the election of the
new Cortes occurs. 'Mr. ' flu Bosc , who la him
self a liberal and a warm supporter of the
Sagasta ministry , says the're is no doubt the
result will bo the retention of a liberal ma
jority In the Cortes and the consequent
continuance of the present ministry. All
parties of late have given loyal aid to the
liberal ministry and Its policy toward Cuba
and the present time is rr tarded by Mr. du
Bosc as auspicious for a "calm campaign
which , ho asserts , will continue the present
authorities In power. He says there is no
significance In the dissolution at this time.
In other quarters it U fe.lt , that the con--
scrvatl\cs may take this opportunity to re
gain the reins of overninVnt by making a
campaign against the Ctibin policy of the-
Sagasta regime. The W ' > ter-elcinent Is , an
other growing factor in Spanish affairs and
it Is expected that the Woyleritcs either
will cast their IiUluenco with the conserva
tives who sent General Wcylcr to Havana ,
or else make ther appearance as a distinct
political organization. To n considerable
extent the contest will be" between the war
element and the peace eLement and as the
liberal program thus far has been mopt
pacific In character U Is ciitlclpated that the
liberals will gaa ! the peace vote.
Election will be held not only in Spain
but In Cuba and Puerto Rico. This , how
ever , should not bo confounded with the
local elections of Cuba , under the plan of
autonomy. Thu present electlcii will be
confined entirely to the choice ot delegates
to the Imperial Parliament and will not be
a part of the autommoua plan for a local
government of Cuba. The latter elections
have not been fixed and the lime for them
will bo set by the autonomous cab'nct. In
the election of April 25 Cuba will select its
quota to the Spanish Cortes under the oarne
sjatem of suffrage that has long prevailed.
The new Cortes will meet'immediately alter
the election , probably May 1. While no date
has bjcn fixed. It has been known In ad
vance that the new body must bo completed
by July 1. This will give brief tlmo for com
pleting the extensive supply bills within the
tlmo prescribed by Spanish law. With a
liberal majority , however. Ibis can bo read
ily accomplished. The possibility of delay
lies in the fact that a c/nservatlve ( victory
will not only give that -party control of
the Corteo but would precipitate another
ministerial trial with Its changes of policies.

A raid of comlder/.blo proportions was ac
complished last night by n patrol wagon ful
ot policemen upon a large gambling roon
above the Diamond saloon , 1321 Douglas
street. The resort , llko others In the city
was running wide open. The place was as
thoroughly equipped and s easy ot adi.iilt-
tanco < as any that flourished In the earlier
days of the city's history.
Shortly after 12 o'clock this morning Cap
tain Haze and Sergeant Chamberlain entcrci
th house in citizens' clothes. There was
no keeper at the wicket and no precautlona
had been considered necessary against a de
scent of the authorities. Officers In uniform
were stationed nt 'tho ' front and 'back ' doors
nnd no resistance was madoiby the twenty-
two Inmates when they were placed under
arrest. The dealer was dispossessed of his
ccsli drawer , which was found to contain
$1,127.60. Nearly a bushel basketful ot
cMps was also confiscated. Players who
were supplied with them lost the value rep
resented and all the money on the tables
was taken la charge , amounting to sevefj ]
hundred dollars.
Two trips to the police station were neces
sary to convey the passengers , who were
charged , with two exceptions , with being In
mates of a gambling house. Many of the
players arc old-tlmo gamblers who have not
been seen In the vlclnltj of Omaha for a
number of years. Another trip was neces
sary to transport the confiscated goods.
These consisted of everything necessary to
suit the taste of the most versatile player.
There was a roulette wheel , a solid oak faro
table , a stud poker table , a straight poker
table , a chuck-a-luck tiblo and a hazard
table. The men arrested gave assumed
names and In n few cases managed to obtain
release on bonds. ( Messrs. iBoyd and Diet
rich , the proprietors , were charged with set
ting up and operating gambling devices.
They obtained their liberty on a cash bond.
The arrest caused considerable excitement
In local sporting circles. At several largo

Uxed Ilnrlnur the
i\lniHltloii. :
At the general committee- meeting yester
day afternoon the city council unnnlmouhly
1 voted to adopt the resolution authorizing
I the building Inspector tu Irene special per
mlti' to the Unlun Pacific Railroad company
to build u temporary passitigor depot , bng-
gage and express station on tlio block be
tween Ninth and Tenth and Mason and
Marcy streets. President II. G. Hurt , Chlct
Engineer John B. Berry nnd H. T. Lcavltt
of the Union Pacific met the committee and
Mr. Burt briefly t'tatcil ' the position of the
company. Ho said that U was to be re
gretted that the Union Pacific had not bccu
able to build a depot In tlmo for the exposi
tion. It had been Impossible on account of
the conditions incident to the receivership ,
but now all olvtaclcs had been removed and
the company proposed to begin tlio erection
of a structure that would bo creditable to
Itself and the city just as soon as the esti
mates could be prepared nnd the material
brought on the ground. But ns Its contract
for the use of the Burlington depot expired
April 1 It was necessary that some accom
modations should bo provided while the per
manent depot was In process ot erection , ami
for this reason thu permission to build a
temporary building waa required.
In reply to a suggestion from finmo of the
councllmen that the people wcro very anx
ious that no temporary depot should be
erected that would be used any longer than
was absolutely necessary , Olr. Burt wld that
ho would give the council his personal as
surance that the work on the permanent de
pot would bo begun at once and pushed with
all possible vigor. Ho had come to live lu
Omaha now and oven If ho wat > so disposed
ho could not afford to break faith with the
pcoplo of the city. The plans wuro alrejii\v
being , drayn ) arJ | ( , lcs ( hoped to have iiie per- . .
manait depot ready for ofidllpancy before' " - .
January 1 next. Ho stated that the perma
nent building would occupy the "two blocks
between Eighth and Tenth and Marcy anil
Leavenworth streets.
After hearing Mr. Burt the council voted ,
to adopt the retolutloii , which only extends
to January 1 , and It was understood that In
case the company proceeded with the erec
tion of a permanent depot In good faith an
nxtenslnn of tlmo would bo granted If It
should bo necessary. The temporary struc
tures , on whlcli work will begin at once ,
will each bo 28x105 feet , extending east and
The Burlington has not yet received word
from any oilier railroad company Indicating
that it fs desirous of entering the Burling
ton's new passenger station. As all such
propositions wcro to have been In the hands
of the executive officers of the Burlington
before March I , It IB not believed that any
other railroad company Is going to make ap
plication for space In the Burlington's new
building. General Solicitor Mnndcrson of the
B. & M. said to The Boo that It would not bo
absolutely necessary for the Burlington to
hear from any other company wishing to en
ter the now structure before 'March 1 , but
the company certainly should expect to bo
notified within a very nhot time , us the
building was rapidly approaching completion.
Ho said : "Tho frame sheds that hove been
such an eye-sore to this community nnd the
traveling public for Biich a long tlmo will bo
torn down Immediately on the completion of
our new depot. The work of tearing down
the sheds will probably bo begun on the
same day that the now depot Is occupied by
the Burlington road. "
There has been roino surprise expresued
In local railway circles that the Union
Pacific did not roof o/cr the brick -and Btono
structure that has recently been torn down ,
as It desired a temporary depot for use dur
ing the exposition. It Is reported on good
authority that this course wa considered by
the Union Pacific officials soon utter Hhe Bur
lington started to build a utatlon of HH own.
but was abandoned because me iiurungion
owned a half Interest In the building.
