"Washington, Feb. feature of the day at the navy department was the number of rumors of a warlike ten- "nato be appointed to Investigate the dency that came to the attention ot Hale ex ho i offlcialB aa requiring attention. So Masdn woufd The disaster, he said, was even now be- ing thoroughly Investigated by the executive department of the govern- ment, and as soon as tangible results were readied the facts would be com- municated to congress. "I had said Mr. Htle. "that entire miuter might be disposed ot without debate. It seems to me that In the circumstances 'and in the light of this moat melancholy affair It Is now Inopportune to indulge In debate upon it." Air. Hale was willing to withdraw hla objections to the reso- lution ot Mr. Allen, but the substitute suggested by Mr. Mason was even more objectionable In Its form. Sir. Mason followed In a speech re- plete with sensational utterances. He had no disposition to Inflame a situation already so exciting, but he felt.that.his substitute was fully justified by the feellngH and desires of the people, lie understood that the navy department was making an Investigation of the disaster, but a congressional Investiga- tion was demanded by the people. The people were" fast to the con- clusion that mat ten) concerning this Cuban affair, Including the DC Lome letter and the loss of the Maine, of which they ought to know, were being concealed from them. Mr, Mason did not desire to reflect upon the motives or lionor of anybody, but he suggested that the officials of the navy department In Investigation would nat- to 2 O'CLOCK CONDUCTED BY LADIES OF BT PATRICK'S CHURCH.

Hamber'B Flute and band JOHN" D. 1XV "Really no Information has been re- ceived since Captain Sigsbec's first dis- patch adding to our .knowlcge .of the disaster, Alt we know Is that the Maine blew up." -There'ie abundant room for speculation of all sorts, but sion con be arrived at until au examina- tion has be_e.n made by more facia obtained. It Is a-YalmpTG by acclcteritl. Therefore? my Impression IIBS been all along, and I rather think the general opinion -preponderates In the same direction, that- It must have been accidental. "You may that there' has" been ho secret cabinet meeting; lint nothing has. taken place In cab- net that the public have not been in- formed about; that.the whole policy of this donartrnent-has been tcrglve pub- ic all the dispatches; that the depart- ment bars no more knowledge on the subject of the disaster or even the cir- cumstances attending it-than have the public, and that the roport-whtchivas to the effect that Captain Sigsbee had warned the department that the in danger from, submarine mines or torpedoes la uttorly without founda- tion, no such report ever-having been re- i celved from hirn nr from anybody else." The secretnry also denied briefly and comprehensively wild rumors that he had requested the chief of police of New York to guard the. Vizcaya, nnd that he had selected Constructor Bowles to go to Havana and raise the Maine. The secretary, when asked what tho department's estimate of (he conduct of Captain Sigebec in. the terrible sit- uation In which he had been placed, re- plied: "I think 1 express the feeling of the president aa well as myself when I say that Captain SJgsbee has conducted himself as an officer of our navy should, He wns the last to leave his ship when she went down. His dispatch tlmt night was so complete that since then I have thought of no question of fact to ask him which is essential to the situa- tion and which he could answer which io not covered by that dispatch. Its tone. too. is that of a. discreet and level- headed man who realized the impres- sion any word from Iilrn. at that time, would have on the public mind. Noth- ing Is harder than for a naval officer to lose his ship, so that I have groat sym- pathy for him. I await, with con- fidence, further reports." EXTEMPORANEOUS ELOQUENCE. Washington, Feb. dtbate, de- cided in Its sensations, was unexpect- edly precipitated In tho senate yester- day over the consideration of the reso- luMon of Mr. directing the com- mltteeon naval affairs tolnvestigate the disaster to the Maine. An arrangement had been made for th'e adoption of the resolution with a minor amendment without debate. Mr. Mason, however, proposed a substitute, and the discussion that "might'attach 'to them. great vehemence, "that we have adopted the Spanish" policy of putting every- thing off until tomorrow. Let this dis- aster Le thoroughly Investigated by con- I press, and then we shall know that It I will be done right." The country, ha continued, was tlreil of the secret con- siderations of such questions. He was not, willing to strike out "immediate" from the resolution. Everyone was In- terested In knowing who Hew up tho il.atne, and all wanted that Information Why delay? "We were told three yeara ago to wait. In the meantime the diplomats had sat at our tables and partaken of'our hospitality, while we were still waiting and had continued to wail until the scries of calamities had been crowned by the Maine catastrophe With Us loss -of 250 precious American lives.11 j Mr. Hale Interrupted Mr. Mason to say that there was no disposition to post- pone inquiry. The whole subject mallei was even now undergoing investigation, nnd in view' of the promptness which had been exercised, there was no reason for Impugning tha motives of the of- ficials of the department. He thought the senate could reasonably wait a few days until the'reunite of the tion could be given to the public. hoped the senate would see the pro- priety of not making tljia an occasion for Inflammatory speeches, and that all would take the view that in the presence of a calamity which had appalled the whole world, today way not the proper time for an appeal to casslon and preju- dice.
