Nkw Yoiik Feb. 1m. A dispatch to
the Ilcrnld from Havana snvs:
"Tlie ollicers of tho Maine fail ut-
terly to account for tho disaster on
th theory of any Internal explosions
but they also ngree that no torpedo
julil have caused tho damngo that
this explosion wrought. Thou too
the finding of n large diamond shaped
pipe of cement which wont so high lit
the air as to crash clear through tho
leek of the City of Washington in Its
leeeent ndds another puzzling feature
lo the case. An Internal explosion
would not have hurled it so high In
"The captain choked down his emo
tion and 1 asked him of tlio disaster.
" There Is very little that lean tell
you' he replied 'I was In the dublnut
tho time. I had just finished a Vottcr
to my family when that cuorm'tiPTo
ash came. Tho ship lurched lieav.V-
Iv to port and I knew in an install t
what it all meant that it meant that
my ship had blown up
' 'All the cabin lights wero put out
ind as I groH!il my way out of tho
spnrtmetit I met my orderly running
toward me. Reaching the deck I gavu
jrdorn to post sentries keep silence
suit to flood the magazines. The mag-
s.lues wero already Hooding thorn-
elves. 1 saw then a disaster was
oinplete; In fact I noticed a few of
jc.r men struggling in tho wator.
" 'What do you think caused the
sxploaion?' I asked Captain Slgsboo.
" 'You will hnve to excuse me from
answering that' he replied."

It I ld at the navy department that
nobody aside from Spanish officers In
Havana know what has boon dono
ta pryU'Ct the harbor in that mating .;
It in ouatomary to divido all greaV"'
harbor Into sections and In plans of
coast defense to assign pluees for tor '
pedoes on the bottom at certain Inter- '
vals. Tbe location of these torpedoes
is kept s profound secret only a few
officers of the army being entrusted
with the knowledge C. If their lota- '
