WAR CANNOT BE
Washington, April 6.—The Post
says that unless Spain, within 48 hours,
yields by surrendering Cuba, war can
not be averted. It sums up the situa
tion as follows:
President McKinley’s message to
congress will be a ringing, vigorous
document that promises to meet the
full expectation of congress and the
people. It will be a scathing arraign

demonstrated her utter incapacity to

to the necessity of armed intervention

Mines in Havana Harbor.
New York, April 6.—A dispatch to
the World from Havana says:
floating submarine mines were secretly
planted in Havana harbor last Wednes
day night by the Spanish government.
This information comes from official
sources and is absolutely correct. The
mines contain sufficient force there to
paralyze the biggest ships afloat.
Impatient Senators Make Open Charge»
Washington, April 6.—It was frankly
and openly charged in the senate today
by Perkins (Cal.) in a eet speech that
Spain was responsible for the Maine
disaster, as it had been brought about
by Spanish machinations and Spanish
treachery. The speech of Perkins was
only one of four prepared addresses on
the Cuban question delivered in the
senate today. Clay (Ga.), while hoping
for a peaceful solution of the problem
the country is now facing, declared
strongly in favor of the independence
of the Cubans, and pledged to the ad
ministration the loyal support of the
South, which, in the event of war,
would have to bear the brunt of the
conflict. Perkins took substantially
the same grounds, and his vigorous
treatment of the subject aroused the
crowded galleries to enthusiastic ap
Mantle (Mont.), while expressing
confidence in the administratoin, main
tained that the time for action had
now arrived, and that action must be
to the end that Cuba should be free.
Rawlins (Utah) entirely eliminated
the president from consideration in his
speech, contending that the case
against Spain was already made up and
that with congress rested the responsi

ing us to wait longer was only to in

most vigorous action immediately.
