Washington. June 7.?The army
today took st.ps to share with the
navy in the American demonstra?

Early In the day the general staff
gave a preliminary test to the ma?
chine it has constructed when it is?
sued orders to the quartermaster gen?
eral to put in readiness for Cuban
service the lour lug army transports
at Newport News, and at the same
time notified the proper military offi?
cers at the various army posts where
are located the organizations which
go to make up the "expeditionary
force" to have the men ready to en?
train at a moment's notice. Withy
six hours, word came from Quarter?
master General Aleshire that the big
transports bad been put in commission
with full supplies and coal and aug?
mented crews, and were ready to sail
the moment the troops were placed
a i ioard.
The order for the transports to
sail or for the troops to entrain was
m t given, and it was said at the State
department that word would not be
given until the marine forces already
landed and now being distributed
among the threatened plantations in
eastern Cuba proved insutlicient or

compel the government of the United
States, much against its desires, to
consider what measures it must take
in pursuance of the obligations of its
relations to Cuba."
Yesterday the following significant
tel.-Kram was sent to tbe American
legation in Habaua, for presentation
to the Cuban government.
"Under the exigencies of the situa?
tion arising out of the failure of the
Cuban authorities to take effective ac?
tion for tin- protection of American
life and property, the commandant at
Ouantanamo naval station has been
compelled to land four companies of
marines. This action has been taken
as a measure of a protection only and
