NEWS FROM HAVANA.
Olven Still at Work on the MaineThe In
TesttgatLon Anxiously Watched.
Washington, Feb. 2tS. In epite of the
ltories that come from unofficial sources
in Havana as to rensational develop
ments in connection with the work of
he divers in the Maine's hull, the ad
ministration remains firm in its sla'e
(jrent that there is no creditable evi
ieuce one way or the other as to the
ause of the disafcter and holds to its
purpose to await the conclusion of the
oncliii-ion of the investigation now
making by the court of inquiry.
This io8ition was emphM'zed at yes
terday's cabinet meeting. The aiembers,
itlrout reservation, frankly admitted
:hat the subject of the lots of the Maine
I ad been discussed, but said that the
jovernment bad received no informa
tion from Havana since yesterday and
had no intention of changing iU? policy
until there was something of substance
to warrant it. The Spanish legation
was equally in the dark as to any of the
iiseovcios reported from sources that
re noL cited.
Kt, relary Long has been under a
I eavy and almost constant strain ever
once he was awakened in the middle of
the night a week ago laet Tuesday by
the news of the loss of the Maine, and
now that niatteis are, at least for the
time being, in a quieter state he has
withdrawn from the navy department
and gone away for a few dftys' rest,
t-aving Assistant (secretary Roosevelt
to inannge the department.
Just before the department closed Mr.
Uoosevi b had word of the sail.ng of the
cruiser Montgomery from Tampa for
Key West. The ship went to Tampa in
order to facilitate the speedy return to
his duties in Washington of Captain
Crowninshield, the chief of the naviga
The Castine, the second of the United
States wart-hips on the South Atlantic
rtation, arrived yesterday at Barbadoes,
where she joined the Cincinnati.
So much depends upon the report of
the court of inquiry it may he interest
ing to note that so far Secretary Long
himself does not know when to expect
this important document, up to this
time I aving heard nothing from any of
the cabinet had a more definite opinion
on the subject, expecting the receipt t-f
the report from ttie court about the
middle of next week.
There ii r. a-.on to believe that pend
ing the reception of a report some of the
otliciaiB of the administration h ve tieen
looking up the subject of indemnities,
go as to lay the foundation oi a case, in
the event it should be decided to resort
to that method of settlement.
There are a large number of prece
dents which will aid the authorities in
shanina their action in this direction if
tlw facts are fully established. While
none of the cases show the fearful loss
of life sustained by the Maine explosion
yet they include many instances in
which the United States has adopted
energetic measures to redre-a the killing
oi Amer.caii citizens in foreign coun
t ioi. In a general ay the.ie methods
of redress bavo included demands for
indemnity, proclamations excluding tl e
war siYip of the offend. ng nations from
our harbors, display of force, non-inter-cotirso,
withdrawal of our minister, re
prisal and blockade. Some of these
steps border very closely on war.

Washington, March 2. The war de
partment has decided to abandon its
expedition for the relief of the miners
in the Klondike country, because the
conclusion has been reached that no
necessity exists for it. Secretary Alger
has w ritten a letter to Senator Ilawley,
chairman of the sena e committee on
military affairs, explaining the depart

gress take action by joint resolution au
thorizing the department to dispose of
the supplies purchased for the expedi
tion, including the reindeer which have
just arrived from Norway, and to aban
don the proj-ct entirely.
In bis lettei Serretary Alger says tiie
conditions on the Yukon have changed
so as. to render the expedition unni ces
sary, and that General Miles and Gen

is also advised to this effect by the
C-anadian minister of the interior.
Later advices than those receiyed last

ami he thinks the grue.t crowds of pros

that the reindeer can be sold at a price
sufficient to reimburse the government
for their cost. He says he has been
offered $100 each for 100 of them. This
amount is above the cost price. He
also states that the interior department
is anxious to take charge of 'he ani

where they hope to find the bodies of
Lieutenant Jenkins and Merritt, as well
as the remains of members of the crew.
The officers mentioned were last seen
