President Taft today sent to congress brief formal message transmitting the full text of the report of the investigating board which found that the battleship Main was blown up in Havana harbor by an exter nal explosion. The board In Its report emphasised the fact that it found what Is called the port starboard strake a continuous line of planking running from stem to stern- was "dished upwards as much as timmv. four Inches from & straight line," that another strake, technically called "C." was displaced "upwards and Inwards' for 100 square feet." and that part of the Inner bottom planking was "displaced up wards" nnd left approximately six fcot above the original position. The destruction wrought by the two ex plosions "if of distinctly different charac ter" was found to be much more exten sive than had been anticipated. Tho re port, ' In technical terms, described how plates were crumpled, how some por tions of what had once been a. great battleship wore turned Inside out and how parts of the bottom works cenerallv were displaced. Debris Widely Scattered. "The debris of one-pounders, six-pound- ers, six-inch and ten-Inch ammunition was found widely scattered through the wreck," the report said. "The location of much of this material bore iiim tlon to. its original stowage condition. Powder tanks were torn asunder nr crushed and flattened. "The condition of the vet iata 1 trsamt rA flat keel at frame 18 was ascribed by the court of inquiry of 1898 rth v.o, war with Spain that followed the blowing up of the Maine) to the) direct effect of an explosion exterior to the ship in that vicinity." Because of Its better detailed examination of thla wreckage, now fully exposed, the present board con cluded that the external Ignited the magazines, was not in the vicinity of this frame 18. The protective deck and hull of the eV tU4 f i cor jpTJ CHER' J ship," the report said, "formed a closed chamber in which the gases wore gen erated and partly expanded before rup ture." The bow portion of the Maine ras found, pointed nose downward In the mud, to port and lying on Its starboard side. The upper part of that portion of the ship in the vicinity of the forward magazines was swept away. Onlv about nne.half nr the bottom was left in position.
