NEW YOUK , IMarch 4. A dispatch to the
Tribune from ( Havana says : . The leading
facts ot the Maine disaster are all now In
the possession of the naval beard. The
divers have continued their work during the
absence of the board at Key West. They
have discovered nothing .to change the evi
dences ( list gathered , which showed that the
explosion was external. Their examination
this week has extended alongside the plates
and they have penetrated forward well Into
the bow. Captain Sampson and his as
sociates were especially anxious to await
further work by the divers to determine
whether or not mistakes had been made In
any particular. Nothing has been found
to Indicate a mistake. On the contrary ,
the morq thoroughly the hull Is examined ,
the moro convincing appear the original
evidences of explosions without , illow long
the board will withhold the Information is
Under the permission given by the
United States government for Spanish
iltvorn to examine the wreck the
Investigation 'by ' the Spanish authori
ties of the condition of the ship as It
Jlos In the water proceeds slowly. They
fccomoJ to bo In no hurry to learn the facts
about the hull , magazines and other matters
which were first to engage the attention
of the naval board. The government has ,
however , taken considerable testimony of
persons who were In thp harbor on the night
ot the explosion. It given rr.ucli weight
to the testimony of those who say they
caw Hames Issuing from the Maine before
the ship was wrecked by an explosion.
The understanding In Havana Is that the
naval board wll bo emphatic in exonerating
Captain Slgsheo and the ofllcers of the Maine
from the implication of negligence , lack of
discipline or responsibility for the disaster.
It has been almost forgotten until the board
ny ncul or Impure comllllon of ( lie
blood , that when we hear oC aueh cases
wo IVel like saying :
I " ' "
For Illustration might cltn thous
ands of testimonials llko the following :
reports upon the subject Captain Slgsbcc Is
nominally under a cloud that Is. the In
quiry must determine whether or not the
commander of the iMalne was In any way
responsible for Its loss , The oecrecy with
which the Investigation has been conducted
has not prevented the testimony on the
subject from becoming known , The board
will be able to go further and show not only
that there was no accident which could have
been prevented but a1o no basis for the
theories of accident from an unknown cause.
How far It will go In the assertion of positive
proof that the .Maine was blown up Is for
the present a speculative question. The
prevalent Imprtwlnn Is that the board has
evidence of tha deed , without the means"
finding out who committed It. It Is In
cumbent on the Spanish government to find
i The denial , credited to Smor du Bcnc In
\Vashlngtco , th > it mine ? exist In Havana
harbor , deco not receive the weight that
would bo given to an official declaration from
Captain General lilanco or Premier Saga&ra
on the same subject. In official circles hcru
It la the evident purpose to combat the find
ing of the naval beard , but not aggrcsalvely.
The Spanish attitude see ma to lie that an
accltlent was probable and that the United
Statcn Is not Justified In making a demand
for reparation when the proof of foul play
la not positive. The assumption will be that
the two governments , after taking evidence ,
will be unable to agree In their conclusions.
Howcvcf , there will be nothing tu the tiatuio
of a joint Investigation.
From the preocnt outlook Madrid and
Washington are the places where the con-
ficquences of the Maine explosion will be de
termined little moro than U already kciovvn
can bo learned here. The wreck promises
to remain In the harbor for an Indefinite
period. The wrecking companies will bo
able to raise the guns of the Malno. The
hull | B ot no value to any government.
Thr- temper of the Spanish classes toward
the United States finds some exhibition at
present , but not In the form ot hostile
demonstration. It Is rather In the shape of
fervent protests and actlcos of lojalty to
the mother country. The arrival of the war
tfilp Vlzcaya has caused an' outpouring ot
the loyal Hplrlt , though It was not exactly
spontaneous , for the demonstration was ar
ranged la advance. Apparently a large pro
portion of the populace arc gratified to sue
the Vlzcaya anchored not far from the wreck
of the Maine. They believe that with the
other war ships which are to come and
with the torpedo flotilla Havana and the
ports of Cuba are safe from the American

to U'euken ,
The officers cf the Kansas City , Plttsburs
& Gulf railroad have announced that tdoy
will take to the United States court of ap
peals their application for an Injunction re-
straldtng the reads In the Southwestern
Freight bureau from Instituting a freight
boycott against the new north and south
line. The road lost a suit of this character
last week at Topeka.-Kaii , , but Is determined
to exert evcryeffor.t to win out In the end.
It Is the judgment of many Omaha freight
men that the freight boycott agalnat ttio
now read la already weakening , and It Is
doubtful If the railroads in the western end
southwestern truffle pools will bo able to
crush the Gulf line In the way originally
Intended. The pool lines proposed to cut
off nil freight traffic relations with the Pitts-
Lurg & Gulf , but were forced to abandon
that plan because It was In open violation of
the Interstate commerce law and might re
sult In the Shermanantitrust law again
belug enforced against the Illegal railroad
pools , It la DOW proposed to demand prepay-
in cal of freight charges on all cfilpmcnts re-
cfelved from 1ie Plttslnirg & Gulf and to
charge full local rates for the haul ,
The counselors for the Plttsburg & Gulf
claim that they will kill the boycott In the
courts. It Is argued that a connecting line
cannot charge the Pltlsburg & Gulf more
for hauling freight than It exacts frcin any
other railroad. If It does It will be the
rankest kind ot discriminated and a viola
tion of the. Interstate commerce law. Ttio
Plttsburg & Gulf announces that It hao
money bclilnd It to stay In the fight with
the pool lines for years and guarantees to
protect Us shippers even It It lies to carry
freight at a loss.

Local RnllronilH lU'Riird ( lint Incident
nn I'rnetlciilly Clovoil.
The settlement of ths long mooted ter
minal quectlcm Is conceded to bo plainly In
sight by all local railroad ofllclals. It Is
believed that the death knell of the Farnam
street depot scheme has been sounded , and
that the Union Pacific will soon begin the
cconrtuctlon of a large passenger station
opposite from the Burlington's new struc
ture and large enough to accommodate the
Uinlon Pacific , the Milwaukee , the Ilock
Island , the Northwestern and all the North-
western's branch lines and the Missouri Pa
cific. No definite statement to this effect can
be secured from the new reglmo at the head
ot Union Pacific affairs , but those who speak
by the card say there Is no tloubt about the
ultimate development of finch a plan , and
predict that no announcement will be made
until the tlmo for action arrives.
Attention has been called to the fact that
the scheme for bringing the Elkhorn and
the Missouri Pacific into a Union Pacific
depot was one orinlnally fathered by S. H.
II. Clark , and might have been carried out
had the structure that was started at Tenth
and Mason streets been completed. The plan
Is not a new 0110 , but Its perfection Is be
lieved to be more practicable at this time
than ever before. A prominent railroad man
I said to The Bee that he had no doubt but
that such a course would be pursued ; ho
thought that the Webster street station ,
would not jbo abandoned thereafter , but
would rather bo used for freight purposes
and for handling only local passenger tmsl-
ness. Ho said whatever the community
about Fifteenth and Webster streets would
lose In the removal ot the principal pa--
scnger trains-that about Tenth and Marcy
streets would gain by the erection of a large
union depot by the Onion Pacific there , to
cost probably as much as $100.000.
In the meanwhile the work of construc
tion on the Burlington's permanent depot
and on the Union Pacific's temporary
structure Is going along at a rapid rate. On
the former the trusses for tha roof have been
swung In place , and one may now get a
good Idea of the entire dimensions of the
building. The floor beams for the Union
Pacific's temporary depot have been laid just
north of the tracks used by passenger trains
and about sixty feet east of the viaduct. A
permit will soon bo requested of the city to
allow the Union Pacific to construct a sloping
driveway and walk from the viaduct to Its
temporary depot. This will bo located about
100 feet north of the point from which the
old driveway walk led down to the depot

CHICAGOf | > I/ych 4. The weetcTn roada
were In e/ynfon today considering the
troubles wlth tije , Canadian Pacific. If further
reductions are to be made by the Canadian
Pacific and the western roada meet them , as
they pay they will , the passenger agents of
the roads of , the.Western Passenger associa
tion will do nothing for a few weeks but
hold meetings tor the purpose of considering
the rate situation. The matter before the
meeting today was the manner of meeting
a reduction of (10 In the price of tickets to
the Pacific const , which It waa reported that
the Canadian Pacific will make In. the near
future. If thla reduction Is made , the plan
of the western roads of selling tickets at
flat rates through the Missouri river gate-
waya will have to be abanJcaed , as the pur
chaser will be able to buy a through ticket
at a reduced fate , use It to a point short of
the destination of the ticket and still be
money In pocket over the amount ot the local
ticket. Moreover , ho will bo able to sell
the traused portion of the ticket to brokers
and thus acrloualy demoralize the local traf
fic of the roada. The only way out of the
difficulty seems to be for the roads to sell
tickets en the rabto plan or reduce thole
Intermediate rates , which they will do only
as a last resort. The meeting today lasted
far Into the night , but nothing tangible had
been done up to a late hour.
The old trouble of scarcity of cars Is
troubling the traffic ofllclals of the roads
running east of Chicago and to some extent
the western raids as well. The great trouble
fieema to bo that the traffic Is so heavy In
bot'i directions that the roads are hauling
very few empty cars , and when a car ar
rives at Its destination It Is generally held
for a return load , Instead of being returned
promptly. Both the eastern and the west
ern roadfl are at the present time badly
cHpplsd for the lack of cars.

Some person at au early uouc yesterday
morning cut a guy rope on the big derrick
at the south fildo of the new Burlington
depot. The rope was girdled wild some
sharp Instrument , evidently a knife , and
Just enough strands were left uncut to In
volve a terrible accident when the derrick
should bo used to lift any material.
Fortunately the condition of the rope was
discovered before the derrick was needed for
use , and all danger was escaped by the use
of a new rope. There Is no reliable clew to
the person or persono who cut the rope.
There has been some trouble with the labor
employed on the new depot , and now none
but union laborers are at work there. It Is
suspected tdat the dastardly act was com
mitted by one of ( do discharged hands. Ono
moa was discharged on Thursday , and when
he left ho said to the foreman : "You'll hear

WASHINGTON , March 4. Prince Albert of
Belgium , who , It Is expected , will arrive In
New York next week on the steamship Kaiser
\Vllhelm der Grosse , will not bo a guest of
the nation. The prince Is traveling Incognito
under the title of Count do Hethy , and such
being the case the government and Its offi
cials must not recognize him as a prlnco ,
The Count do Hethy comes to this country
to study political economy and to see BOUIO-
thing of our manufacturing and Industrial
Interests , and , ns the display and publicity
which would attend a visit In his official
capacity would greatly Interfere with the
object of Ills tour , he has decided to laj
aside his tltlo of prince for the time being.
Count LIchtervelde , the minister from Bol-
glum , will meet the young count upon his
arrival In New York and will escort him to
Washington , where ho will be his guest In
It Is understood that Lieutenant Langhorn ,
U. S. A. , a well known man In Washington
society , has been appointed to bo military
representative with the prlnco and he will
accompany him en tils travels In this coun
try. Shortly after his arrival In Washington
the royal visitor will call upon the sesrctarj
of state , who will accompany him to the
White House , where ho will bo presented to
the president. Ho will bo the guest of honor
at a dinner given by the president en Friday
evening , the llth , and at a dinner given the
following evening by the minister from Bel-
glucn. The latter dinner will bo followed by
a reception , for which the Invitations read :
"Tho Countess Llchtonelde at home , March
12. at half after 9 o'clock , Kachers. "
Vice President Hobart will also entertain
him , but the date has t ot yet been arranged.
The prince's stay In Washington will b&
short , probably not more than three or four
days , and It Is not likely that ho will re
main In any city a longer time. Count
Lichterveldo toys : "The prince will not re
main heio for more than three or four days
at most. You sec , fie will bo lei the country
less than four months and ho has a great
deal before him. From Washington ho will
travel through the south as far as New
Orleans , thjn northwest to San Francisco ,
then he will travel through the west , visit
ing most of the largo cities , and. will gradu
ally make his way-east to the New England
btatea , and later will return to New York
and Philadelphia. The prlnco Is only 22
pars of age , but he takes a great interest In
political economy and the Industrial problems
of the day. His royal highness Is the only
son of Philippe , the count of Flanders. HU >
mother , the countess of Flanders , was born
the princess of Hohcnzollcrn. The count of
Flanders Is own brother of the present king ,
Leopold II. Philippe Is next la succession
to the throne and the young prince , Albert ,

WASHINGTON , March 4. The breaking
out anew of the controversy over the bound
ary line between Alaska and British Columbia
created much Interest among officials today
and calls attention to the necessity for a
final disposition of the boundary Issue. While
a matter whoso adjudication rests In the
jurisdiction of the State department It li
pointed out here officially that the maps and
data prepared with the greatest rare and pre
cision by the Coast and Geodetic survey
authorities sustain In every point the posi
tion assumed by the United States with re
spect to Its domain. It Is said , however , an
Important question In the construction of the
terms of the Anglo-Uutslan treaty , signed at
St. Petersburg In February , 1825 , upon which
our claims rest. This govcinment fixes upo.n
call water at the basis of the definition ot
the ocean , whllo the British dispute tills and
assert the Islands are the ocean shore , which
would place the head of the Lynn canal In
British territory , giving them several Im
portant points like Talya end Skagway.
Attention Is called to the fact that the
treaty docs not , as seems to bo believed ,
prescribe a strip ten leagues wide as Ameri
can land , bnt It does make the boundary
line the summit of the mountain range pro
vided that range does not Involve a width
of over ten leagues. According to the
reckoning of the coast survey authorities
and the lines of demarcation In their publi
cations the summit of Whlto pass , over
which the British flag is reported to bo
planted , Is ten miles on the United States
sldo of the ten-league or thirty-mile bound
ary line. Lake Bennett comes within the
United States strip on the same calculation.
The 141st meridian cited In the treaty la
the Mount St. Ellas line. In this connection
the specific terms If the treaty , between
Great Britain and Russia defining the
boundary are a part of the treaty between
the United States and Rurala and defines
the boundary of Alaska In the purchase of
that country , the last portion of which Is
as follows :
That wherever the summit of the moun
tains iwhlch extend in a dlrcrtlon parallel
to the coast'frc-m ' the * fifty-sixth ilcsreo of
north latitude , to the point of Intersection
of the one hundred and forty-first degree of
west longitude shall prove to bo nt the
distance of 'more ' than ten marine leagues
from Ithoocean , the limit between the llrlt-
Ish possessions and the line of coast which
Is to belong to Russia aa above mentioned
shall bo Termed by n line parallel to the
windings of thoco.ist , and which shall never
exceed tha distance of ten marine leagues
