Washington, May 31. The sit
uation in Cuba is growing more criti
cal daily. The insurgents are burn-.
ing large quantities if cane, as well
as houses. For the most part it is
foreign property that is suffering.
The people of Guantanamo and the
outlying districts are greatly jilarm
ed and are demanding more efficient
From their knowledge of the cam
paign methods of the rebel leaders,
state department officials do not
anticipate anything in the nature of
a general engagement, but believe
that the rebels will avoid any such
test of strength with their raw and
half-armed levies. Instead they are
expected to break up into small
squads and take to the bush, which,
of course, would bemostunwelca
to foreign interests as increasing the
danger to isolated American-owned
plantations, exposed to the raids of
Eight Men-o-war of the Atlantic
squadron are at Key West anchored
in the .harbor.. They form part of
the fleet dispatched here to await
eventualities in Cuba,.
The vessels which arrived thif
morning were" the Washington,
Georgia, Rhode Island, New Jersey,
Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio and
Minnesota. The latter is the fllag-
ship of Rear Admiral N. R. Usher,
commander of the provisional fleet,
who arrived here last night overland.
Louisville, Ky., May 30. With the
State administration victorious at
every point from the election of
James B. McCreary as temporary
chairman to the selection of J. C. C.
Mayo as national committeeman and
Rufus W. Vansant as chairman of the
Central and executive committees,
the Democratic convention adjourn
ed at 1 o'clock this morning.
Ollie James' was defeated at every
stage of the game. It was demon
strated again and again that his
claims of strength were not founded
on fact, but were made only for the
effect that they would have on unin
structed delegates. The only point
gained by Mr. James was in the mat
ter of obtaining instructions for
Champ Clark for President. But on
tnis point mere was practically no
difference of opinion in the State,
nearly every county being for Champ
The most dramatic incident of the
convention was the unprecedented

' Urey Woodson Defeated.
But it was not James alone that
went down to defeat. With him
went Urey Woodson, for sixteen
years a member of the Democratic
National Committee from Kentucky.
Having disposed of Ollie James at
the afternoon session, the- Adminis
tration took Mr. Woodson's scalp at
theliight session and elected John
C. C. Mayo, the mountain million
aire, one of the most powerful of the
organization leaders, to succeed him.
Then, determined to sweep the
platter clean, the Administration
madeJohn M. Stevenson, of Win
chester, the next victim. Mr. Stev
enson was easy prey. Indeed, his
name was not mentioned in the con
vention and Rufus Vansant, of Ash
land, was elected chairman without
a dissenting vote.
lnusdidtne Administration tri
umph over its opponents. With one
telling blow it put the opposition to
route and left the leaders, dazed and
