Washington, Feb. 16—1 a. m—Ex-
citement in thU city is intense tonight
ovar the Maine disaster. Crowds, sur-
round the navy department and all
words breathe threats against Spain.
The stita department has been in closo
communication with Havana tonight,
but little Intelligence is being given
At 11 o'clock tonight (lenora! Lee
cabled that accident did not cause the
disaster, and he openly bilieves there
has been treachery and foul play. In
a cable addressed to the Associated
Press, Leo only hints at foul play, but
aska that Ilia American people with
hold judgment until an official invest*,
gation is had.
Thostato department has called for
an immediate official investigation.
The death list at 9 o'clock tonight
bad reached 2C0 seamen.
Cabinet Discusses Disaster.
Washington, Feb. 10.—Among the
matters discubsed by the president and
the members of the cabinet wan the
question of the expediency of immed-
iately sending sixteen more warships
to Havana to take the place of the
Maine, and the coucluaion is under-
stood to have been reached that at
present such a course ia not desirable.
At about 1:30 o'clock it was authorita-
tively btated at the While Housa that
the information so far roceiyed in-
dicated that the loss of the Maine was
the result of ati accident, and that in
the absenco of evidence to the con-
trary this should be assumed to be the
fact. Secretary Long returned to the
White House early in the afternoon
and remained witn the president for
bome time. Up to 2 o'c'.ock nothing
had been received from Havana since
the cablegram from Captain Sigsby.
Washington, Feb. 16—The folio.v

At this moment the naval officer*

account for the destruction of the

clined to the belief that the explosion
was purelv accidental; another consid

New York, Feb. 16.—Senor Dj Lome
heard the news of the digester to the
Maine at the Hotel Saint Marj this
morning. At first he refused to credit
he news, but when the truth dawned
upon him he said:
••It is terrible. 1 pray God tho news
has bfei exaggerated. You may be
biire of one thing, however; no Span
iard did this.
Like myself, all Spaniard* of im
portanee entertain friendly feeling
toward this country There will
no war; there can be no war between
America and Spain.
This appalling disaster forces mo
to a declaration that I love America us
I do no other country than my own.'

Washington, Feb. 16 — Aisceiated
Press advi es from Havana: At 2
o'clock in the morning, while the cor-
respondent of tho Associated Press
was going ashore there was another
terrible explosion At the same time
boats from the Spanish steamers Colon
and Mexico were taking eight wounded
men ashore after having saved them
from the water.
Up to 2 a. m. fifty-seven men and
twenty-four officers had been ac-
counted for. Paymaster Ray said that
last Sunday there were 354 men on his
list, all told.
Lieutenant Jenkins and Assistant
Engineer Merritt are among those not
L5eutennnt Blandin was on watch at
tho time of the explosion,
Some of the wreckage of the Maine
fell on board the City of Washington
and knocked two ho'rs in her deck.
A Spanish naval ofli ;r r 6a<d Captain
Sigsbee was the last man to abandon
the sinking ship, and that he remained
alongside tho wr< ck as long as it was
possible to do anything in the work of
that they were on shore at tho
time of the accident
The secretary of the navy received
another dispatch fro-u Key West at
the same time with the above, but it>
contents were not made public.
The orders for tho lij^thouse ten-
ders were at once sent to Key^Venl in
plain language, thus avoiding tho de-
lay that would have arisen from the
of u c'pher.

tain Dickens and th* two discussed

besides tho secretary and Captain
1) chins, th:* naval colony here is
orant of this disaster, the greatest
which has befallen the American navy
since tho disaster in Apia many years
The secretary is inclined to be-
lit ve that most of the officers of the
Maine were on shore at the time of
the accident, as it was still early in
tho night. While neither the secre-
tary nor Captain Dickens is inclined
hiss the probable cause of the
accident,several suggestions were ven-
tured upon. They believe that it mav
have been caused by a fire In the
bunkers, heating the bulkhead near u
magazine, or that uu accident may
have occurred while inspecting high
explosives for torpedoes, of course,
this is mere speculation ami the sec-
retary is anxiously waiting a more de-
tailed report from Captain Sigsbee.

Tho commander of the Maine, Cap-
tain Sigsbee, is a favorite in tho navy
department. For four years he was
chief of the hydrographie office and
his energy brought the office up to a
high standard. He was lucky to get so
important a ship as the Maine, con-
sidering his actual rank, which is that
of a commander, but immediately
he justified the department's judgment
in the selection by running his ship
straight into a dock in New York har-
bor to avoid running down a packed
excursion boat. This was a display of
good judgment, nerve and pluck that
pleased the department so highly that
tho captain wus sent a complimentary
