Officials of the War Departmen
look for a crisis in the affairs of the
island repuollc by February In
1906 when the United States inter
vened in Cuba the then President
of the United StatesTheodoro Roose
velt and the Secretary of War Wll
liam H Taft declared that if this
country was again called to settle
disputes between factions of the
Cuban Government and maintain
peace throughout the island the
Stars and Stripes would remain
there

Officials of the State and War de
partments have been kept In close
touch with affairs In I Cuba ever sine
the evacuation by American troops
less than three years ago Within
the last six months reports and In
formation received from Americar
representatives in tho island have
Indicated that the Cuban govern
ment was not Substantial and could
exist but a few months longer
Within the last three weeks the re
ports have been so discouraging tha
the War Department has felt th <
necessity of keeping 5000 troop
within a thirtysix hours erabarka
tlon point
When Secretary of War Dlcklqgor
and Brigadier General Clarence Ed
wards chief of the bureau of Insu
lar affairs of the War Department
visited Cuba in November thoy
were startled and amazed by the dis
rupted and corrupt conditions which
they found existing there
It was on the strength of their
report and those of John B Jackson
minister to Cuba that the admlnls
ration deemed It advisable to have
troops and munitions of war in read
Iness for immediate use Leading
officers of the army do not believe
that the American flag can be plant
ed in Cuba without bloodshed
According to reports in the Wai
and State departments It has beer
tho practice of the United States
protege president In Cuba Jose
Miguel Gomez that has led to the <
undoing of all that General Leonard
Wood President Taft and Governoi
Hagoon did to put the government
on a substantial basis These reports
ports state that many measures have
been pushoi through the Cuban leg
Islature for the benefit of special In
terests
The sum of 300000 was received
from the United Railways for Influ
ence to push a measure through the
House of Representatives and Senate
In favor of the trade of a valuable
piece of property on the Havana wat
er front known as the Arsenal prop
erty for the city terminal of the
United Railways of Havana a Cana
dian concern according to a report
on Die In the War Department
The terminal property is worth
from 7000000 to 10000000
less than the arsenal property It Is
the same deal that Governor Ma
goon when administering the affairs
of the Island refused to allow to be
presented to the Cuban congress
The contention of the Unlted States
then was that for military and other
purposes It did not want this proper
ty to fall into the hands of any gov
ernment except its own
The efforts of Gomez in pushing
this matter through tho congress of
Cuba has led to ono of tho most re
markable scenes of gun play
known In any civilized country It
has resulted in the discharging of
firearms In the Cuban capital the ex
changing of shots between members
of the house and senate in the death
of four prominent legislators two of
which occurred In the capitol and
twpf of which wore dhe result of a
duqVon the streets near the capital

ed on whatever we decide to do
We feel tho association Is In fine 1

growers not take advantage of tho 1
situation and plant and raise more I
tobacco this next year than the mar

know the plan of the association Is
now and always has been not to
commence delivering any tobacco I
until we have all of the tobacco
placed that is pooled with us
There Is no doubt but what there I
can be with a good crop any
where from 35 to 40 million pounds I
of tobacco handled In the Green River

If we raise over the amount These I
aro questions wo have to consider
