THE SEWS IJi WASHINGTON. Qr««t Ctaitr uipot lu III* Capital Cltjr Ofrt tli* IN-*! rorllon of tho Mai a*. WAsi'iNt.TKN, Feb. 17. News of the disa.-ter at Havana spread rapidly over the city and the hotel lobbies and all public places were crowded with people eager to hear and discuss every par ticle of information a* fast as it was re ceived. The wildest re]- rts were in circuiation, both in regitri. to the num ber of fatalities and the cause of the explosion. Nearly every ouo seemed to suspect treachery on the part of Spain or its over-enthusiastic fneuds in Havana. Few would believe the ex plosion was the result of an accident. Cooler heads expressed a willingness to wait for later news, before forming any conclusions. Thr ITMldlll AflUML Proident McKinley was greatly agi tated when he heard the news, and lie expressed deep sorrow for the sailors who lost their lives. At the army and navy club, there were groups of deeply interested ollicers, some of them show ing their deep sorrow in every word and look, for their acquaintances aboard the Maiue. Thero is much conjecture as to what course is being or will be pursued by the government. The telegraph office is being IR sioged by the friends of those known to be on board of the Maine. The men and officers have I friends and fam ilies in tV»8 city and some of the latter were in a state of excitement better im agined than told. Tney all begged piteously for the names They were no crumbs of anv one, as each bulletiu pictured disaster as moro terrible than the on* preceding it. of tho lost, comfort lor the Drnslor* aal C'ooisr«»«»men lut*r»»l'J. The greatest interest prevailed among senators and representatives as to the extent of tho Maine disaster, and many of tliem hurried to the navy and state departments to learn if there were an further details. With only the lirst re ports before them, nnd a recognition of tho graveuess of any utterances there was a hesitancy to express opinions at this time. Tho immense gravity of the situation in case later adviccs should show that tho disaster was not purely accidental was admitted by all public men. Con servativo public men, in tho face of the appalling catastrophe, the meagre in formation at hand, and its possible con Bequonces therefore declitiod to oxpress any opinion at this time. Chairman Hitt of tho foreign affairs committee. Chairman Dmgley of tho ways and moans commit too, and members o naval committoo of tho house all said they proferrod to await fuller informa tion before expressing thenisWves. Mr. Hitt said it would be well for tin public to follow tho cuo giveu by ap tain Sigsboe, and suspend judgment until tho cause of tho disaster \as ascertained. Senator Piatt of Connecticut, ex pressed tho opiuion that tho explosion w o u e o u n o o o e s u accident, from within, and ho doubted that any ono could have planucd am carriod out a plot to briug about an ex plosion on tho ship. Hollar Thinks It Suspicion* Ex-Senator Butler of South Carolina who was a mombor of tho committee on foreign relations in tho senate, said that it was decidedly strange that American vessels have visited every port in tho world and no accident befallen them as soon aa a isipl vjaited Havana this great disaster should occur. Gen eral liutler was of the opinion that somi bold man had gone aboard the Mainu nnd placed a grenade with a slow match where it would explode tho magazine. It was probable, he thought, that many people had been permitted to visit the warship, and that some oue of tins visitors had carried a grenade aboad. A very prominent naval officcr, who did not wish his name used because of the meagreuess of present information as to details, expressed tho opinion that the accident occurred from spontaneous combustion in tiie coal bunkers, ths heat ot which explode 1 the powder in i the supplementary magazines adjoin-! ing. Still another prominent officer was very confident that tho forward magazine of the Maine could not have exploded. "Had the inagazino exploded," he said, "the ship would have been blown to Hinders." X» Ocr.tnlou for funsri'M to Acl Y« t. The news of the disaster created a profound impression at the capitol. Senators and mom bars oi tho house, a. a rule, expressed the opinion for publi cation th:^ the catastrophe was die result of accident, and not of design, but there were some opinions, generally expressed under the breath with the admonition not to publish, to the effect that the affair looked very mysterious and doubtful. As a rule, senators expressed the opinion that the Je]artmeut would and should make thorough investigation, and added that for the present it would be unnecessary for congress to take the matter up. Senator Hale, chairmau of the com mittee ou naval affairs, and member of the committee on appropriations said he had just come from an in'erview with the secretary of tho navy, and that he felt confident that the navy de partment would institute a thorough .uvestigatiou into the disaster. "Tnere is no occasion," said the sen* slot, "loi congress to take the matter ip. Surely something should be left to the detriment, aud this is one of the things which should be so left. It is, of course, from the information re reived, impossible to say how the ac cident occurred, but I feel confident tho facts, when developed, will show that it was an accident. The Maine was, of course, prepared for action in case ac tion should be necessary, and had therefore many vulnerable points ex posed. A battleship is little less than a volcano under the most favorable cir cumstances, aud when legislating for the increase of the navy, I always feel that a war vessel may prove to be "almost as dangerous to those ou lard as to those whom it might engage in hostile conflict. For this reason 1 am sure the affair in Havana harbor will prove a genuine sensation in naval cir cles. The senator expressed the opin« ion that cougress would take steps to prevent tho decrease of the navy, but would not undertake to say that there would be immediate efforts to replace tho Maine. MADISON, SOUTH DAKOTA. THURSDAY, FKISIU ARY 17, 1898. Ho said that whatever could have caused the catastrophe he was sure that no friend of Spain could have been guilty of such conduct for tho reason that if there had been no higher motive the act would have been a very foolish and foolhardy one. He said the Maine has cost, according to his recollection, between f3,OUO,UOO aud $4,000,000. THEY LOVE AMERICA. Former Minister le I«n* Say« Spaniards liave Hern Much Mlsunderatood. NEW YOKR, Feb. 17.—"The Spanish ministry and the Spanish people have been greatly misunderstood in this country," eaid Senor de Lome, the former Spanish minister. "They all desire peace they all want peace with America, und Americans, not only from motives of policy, but because they love America. ••I am forced to say now, by this ter terrible affair, what I should have been precluded from saying bofore. There is no country in the world that I love \s I do America. I love the country and the people. It is with the keenest regret that 1 take my leave as a result of this unfortunate letter incident. Nearly all prominent Spaniards and men of influence in my couutry share my views iu regard to America. •'Spain cannot afford to have war with the United States. If only fiorn motives of policy they are determined not to have war. If the Maiue has blown up iu Havana harbor, it is the rosult of an accident. That i* ft eer taiuty. There will bo no war.

Captain Latham of the steamer Coleman, told passengers on the Islander that the Clara Nevada foundered with all on board opposite Seaward City, where she was running for shelter. George beck, a resident of Seaward City was an eye-witness of the disaster. He was standing on the beach wheu he saw a siuao steamer battling with the wind. Suddenly there was a flash aud the steamer burst into flames, founder ing in a few seconds. Sno had on i board i.'» passengers and crew.
