Washington, May 12.Mr. Leger,
the Haytian minister at Washington,
has cabled his president requesting to
be fully advised as to the situation in
that country. The minister has had
no intimation of the impending trou

of heavy fighting which are drifting in
from abroad, mainly through Japan

The general stall admits it is without
advices as to whether the railroad or
telegraph to Port Arthur are still open.
Upon several points, however, specific
information is vouchsafed. The idea
that the Russian squadron at Port Ar

falling into the hands of the enemy is
scouted at the admiralty.
