CABLE FROM MR POWELL
Not Known Here to Whom Admiral of
Navy Is Friendly No American War
ship at Port au Prince Marietta May
Be Sent
After a period of quiet extending over
several weeks the political troubles in
Halt have apparently again reached a
crisis In a telegram received at the
State Department yesterday William L
Powell the United States minister at
Port au Prince savs thit he had In
formation that the Haltlen admiral
would bombard Cape Haltlen at 2 oclock
In the afternoon
Another telegram from Mr Powell
which came Immediately after the re
ceipt of the first contained the In
formation that the Haltlen government
disavowed the action of the admiral
Owing to the peculiar political situa
tion which exists in Haiti the State
Department authorities arc not able defi
nitely to Interpret Mr Powells advices
t last accounts the control of Port au
Prince and most of the principal towns
was In the hands of a urovlsloml gov
ernment headed b a former president
of the rTUblic
This provisional government was Inde
pendent of any connection with the con
stitutional government of President
Jiminer or the revolutionary party
ncaaeu Dy tenerai rirmin who was
until recently the Haiticn minister at
Paris
A Former Outbreak
An outbreak among the people of Port
au Prince resulted la damage to public
buildings assaults en legislative depu
ties and the abdication of President
Jiminer who placed himself under the
protection cf the foreign diplomatic
ccrps and finally left the country ac
companied by somo members of his
cabinet
Flrmln who on his return from Paris
had landed at Capo Haltlen and organ
ised a revolutlonar army was then
marching en the capital The Haltlen
admiral whose force consisted of a sin
gle vessel declared for Flrmln and with
drew from Port au Prince for the osten
sible purpoe of assisting Firmln in an
assault ou seacoast towns
Realizing the serious condition of af
fairs a number of conservative men In
Port au Prince organized a committee
which undertook to administer the

former was the holder of the trophy and
defended It in splendid minner but
could not again land it Durea winning
four to three games in a set of seven
So elrsely matched were the plajers
that it took the entire set of games to
decide the winner
At the beginning neither player vas
In good form but at the end ot two
games both showed Improvement and as
the contest prograssed their playing
caused Intense enthusiasm among the
crowds which lined the courts The
attendance was the largest ever seen on
the courts except during tournament
v nek
Duryea may be called upon to defend
the mallet shortly as there are a num
ber of aspirants for the honor of win
ning it
It is probabe that Durca vlll bo
railed on to meet Marr in about two
fairs of the government provisionally
After some dcla this provisional com
mittee was recognized by Mlnlsfr
Powell and other members of the diplo
matic corps as tho de facto government
The committee sent out emissaries to
negotiate with Flrmln and It was sup
posed that an agreement had been
reached by which Flrmln would abandon
the revolution and the country would
continue to be governed by the pro
visional committee
It is not known here whether the
Haltlen admiral Is still friendlv to
rirmin or is opposing the provlsloml
