ONE CLASH REPORTED
Intervention May Come at Any
Moment Weyler's Meth
ods in Favor.
Havana, Sept. 21. A crisis in the at
tempt of the American mediators to
settle the Cuban quarrel, appears to
be approaching. Indications today
seem to be that Secretary Taft will
not be able to settle the difficulty
without definite and real interven
Taft is uncommunicative today, but
it is known he has been in frequent
corrmunication with President Roose
velt, and reported conditions here to
be far worse than he supposed.
CONFIRM KARI.IEIt I.MI'RKSSIOX.
Washington, Sept. 21. Advices from
Havana today only confirm the feeling
which has been entertained here that
the differences between the govern
ment and insurgent forces are irrecon
ciliable, and that even if the -president's
commissioners should succeed
in accomplishing any arrangements for
a settlement of the difficulties in Cuba,
it would be but temporary and that
a crisis must necessarily result sooner
or later. .Intervention therefore, by
the United States is likely to occur
at any moment.
It was said today in case of Inter
vention one of the first acts of the
United States would be the adoption of
a policy of rtconcentration, but with
out the horrors attending a similar pol
icy by General Weyler. -

Havana, Sept. 21
The second day .
of the conference with leaders of fac-
tions in the Cuban conflict did not en-
able Secretaries Taft and Bacon to an
nounce any plan for compromising the
difficulty. So strenuous are the ap
peals of both the liberal and moderate
tarty leaders that the situation be
comes more complicated. However,
Mr. Taft said that when they are
brought face to face with the danger
of losing Cuban independence it is pos
sible that they will be less insistent in
Secretary Taft added that the United
States peace emissaries are occupying
a most delicate position and have un
dertaken to hear all complaints, and
that until they have made themselves
thoroughly conversant with he polit
ical turmoil in Cuba they cannot ex
press themselves freely, fearing possi
ble misunderstandings may be taken.
Xol Srrklne Control.
Secretary Taft has made it clear that
the United States is not seeking to ex
ercise control over the island or any
of Its affairs; but he has quoted Pres
ident Roosevelt's letter to Minister
Quesada to the effect that the United
States has a duty which it canno;
shirk. To those whom he has met In
conference Mr. Taft has said that now
is the time to decide whether they
would have Cuba live as a nation.
Mr. Taft realizes that unless a na
tional spirit is aroused commercial in
terests will have no confidence in a
settlement that may be reached. Cuban,
Spanish. American and other business
nen are talking of uniting in a petition
to Secretaries Taft and Bacon urging
some radical form of Intervention or
