By Assoolated Press.
Washington, May 25. The Insurrec
tion and disorders in Cuba which
threaten life and property of Ameri
cana and which are believed by the
United States to be spreading- beyond
the control of the Cuban government,
caused the American government to
day to take active steps in preparation
to cope with any situation which may
arise la the Island republic
Two divisions of the Atlantic bat
tleship fleet were ordered to take on
their' full quota of marines, making a
total of 1,800, in addition to 200 now
en route to Guantanamo on the Prairie
and the rendezvous at Key West, ready
to move to Cuba at the Instant their
presence la needed. Dozens of war
ships will be in the Immediate vicinity
of Cuba within a few days. The army.
s prepared with an expeditionary
force of fifteen thousand men. If it Is
needed, and plana for a campaign to
stamp out the rebellion, prepared by
the general stall, are ready to be put
in execution at the call of the presi
dent. The attitude of the Cuban govern
ment in welcoming, the dispatch of
American marines to Guantanamo la
accepted as an indication of its per
fect wllingness to allow other marines
and bluejackets to be landed without
express permission from the local Cu
ban authorities. In any case the
American naval commanders will ex
ercise their discretion where American
life and property seem to be in need of
protection. ; - ; r ' .'
OSTERHAUS IN COMMAND.
Admiral Osterhaus, commanding1 the
Atlantic fleet, will command this mob
lilted fleet from his flagship, the
Washington. Other, vessels will be the
-Georgia. Rhode Island, New Jersey and
.Nebraska, composing the Third di
vision, and the Minnesota, Mississippi,
' Missouri and -Ohio, of the ; Fourth di
vision. The hospital ship Solace and
the fleet tugs Petapsco -and Pajxent
will accompany the expedition.
The Osterhaus fleet should arrive At
KeykWest.by Wednesday If the ves
sels clear tomorrow as expected. The
gunboat Paducah , has been ordered
from Guantanamo to Nipe. Plans call
for a dashing campaign if it becomes
necessary to use force against the
rebels. ; Officials disclaim any inten
tion " of military occupation of Cuba
unless the insurrection gets beyond
the control of the Gomez government
and a condition should arise demand
ing intervention. They have no doubt
of "their right to intervene under
clauses of the treaty.
From, the mass of, conflicting. re
port that have reached the state and
war departments as to actual condi
tions in Cuba, conculslon was drawn
today that a crisis impends in the
island and that this is sufficient to
Justify full preparations for protecting
American interests. '
Therefore, word was passed to the
navy to hold itself subject for call,
and at noon two divisions of the great
Atlantic fleet were under orders to
rendezvous at New York and Hamp
ton Roads, within striking distance of
the trouble zone.
The navy does not expect that the
battleships, as luch. will be necessary
for Cuban operations, but it happens
that they furnish the only convenient
means of providing a sufficient num
ber of the "always ready" marines at
various points on, the Cuban coast to
afford protection and rallying points
for Americans on the island.
The immediate need for these ma
rines is believed to be in the neigh
borhood of Nipe bay on the north
coast of the east end of Cuba, where
an Investment of nearly $20,000,000 of
American money is represented in the
great sugar plantations. Iron mines
and other industries, within a range
twenty or thirty miles.
The manner in which the state de
partment emphasizes the explanation
that the purpose , of these forces will
imply -be to protect American in
terests where the Cuban government
forces either cannot or will not do so.
Is consonant with the declared pur
pose to refrain from intervention in a
political sense, until it shall clearly ap
pear that the Gomez government ' is
unable to control the situation.
An interesting point to be decided
Is whether the American naval con
manders will respond to the appeals of
the American interests in Cuba for
protection without reference to the

they cannot hope to save him in hit
fight for the retention of his seat.
While It Is not admitted that Lorimer
will be urged to resign, it was said he
might decide on that course.
Vice-President Sherman left Wash
ington last night for Chicago. It was
rumored that he would see Senator
Lorimer and communicate to him the
result cf a poll of the senate that has
Just been concluded. That poll shows:
Certain for Lorimer, 40; certain to
oppose him. 39; doubtful, 16. There is
The attiude of the senators whose
votes are classed as doubtful has given
the friends of Senator Lorimer much
concern. Although nearly a week has
gone by since the poll was madethe
Lorimer supporters have not been able
to add one name to their list.
Lorimer. men were forced to the
conclusion that the list of doubtful
votes was too large to give them any
chance to win if the case were brought
to a vote. It was decided, therefore!
to submit the exact situation to SenjttJ
tor Lorimer. "' t
It was argued that Senator Lorimer
should be content to rest on his former
victory and that the fact that a ma
jority of the committee which investi
gated the charges th second time had
reported in his favor. .
' One severe blow to , the Lorimer
forces was the inowledre that Senator
Curtis, of Kansas, who - voted . for
i-orlmer last session, would be against
rim if the case again came to a vote.
Senator Curtis Justifies his change
by his friendship for Clarence S. Funk,
oi Chicago, general manager of the
International Harvester Company. The
Kansas senator says the testimony
given in the last investigation clearly
r&lses a question of veracity between
Funk and Edward Hines, charged with
having said he helped "put Lorimer

The situation of Pensacola and the

Alabama and as far west as Ohio, at
as much again the cost of coal at the
mouth of the mine, and as much again
to place the coal in two big coaling
stations that will be placed at each

words, coal is to be delivered at Pana
