WASHINGTON. .Juno J. The army
today took steps to share with
the navy ln the American
demonstration in Cuba.
Early In the day the general

chine It haa constructed when it issued
orders to the quartermaster general to
put In readiness for Cuban service the
four big army transports at Newport
News, and at the same time notified the
proper officers at the various army posts,
where are located the orgajiiza lions
which go to make up the "expeditionary
force" of 6000, to have the men ready to
entrain at a moment's notice.

ment the troops were on board.
Order Not Yet Given.
The order for the transports to sail or
for the troops to entrain was not given,

Cuban authorities to take effective
action for the protection of American
life and property, the commandant
at Guantanamo naval station has
been compelled to land four compa

been taken as a measure of protec

putting down the Insurrection, which
is clearly the duty of Cuba. Four
large war vessels forthwith will be
sent from Key West to Guantanamo

should demand them. H Is hoped
that these measures WPI at once
