Havana. Feh. !'. vla Tampa. Feh. W?Experl
merital gatonomy ln Cuba has rea-'hed the ex
planatlon siage. This week has been glven over
ta explanatlona froaa MadiM that the Sagasta
Mlnlatry ls not bent on reeonstttuting the Aa
tonotnlel Cabloet. that the bad Impreoalonfl ??*?
ated bave no real basls, and that the Mlnlstry
Is flBttefled arlth the progress which the new
reglmen is maklng. The Autoiiomlet rabinet
membere expleln, on their part, that they are
nol divided among theinaelveB, They edd that,
whilo th"y have exerted themselves lndlvldually
to persuad* the Inevrgenta to y1"ld. lt 1b not
thelr function Bfl a Cablnet to treat with OomCS;
that. they say. and In naylng !t. relleve them
eelves of a h.-avy burden of rosponslblllty, he
longa to ibe mllltary aathorltlea. They farther
eaplata thal thelr time bj taken up with 1m
portant civll affalrs. such as arranglng the
baelfl tor the redprodty treaty with the Unlted
Stat.s. which, If ronsummated, may have an
Important effect ln dlsintegratlng the 'nsurree
Naturally. lt wlll be accepted everywhere that
the explanatlona wouid not he so rrofuse If
there were nnthlng to explaln Th* truth ls that
the Befljaata Minlstry has ehOWB difiappolntment
over the fallure of the Autonomists who have
heen put in offlce to exerolse a more pronnunoed
Inflaence on the insurrectlon. The memhers of
the Cablnet BUSpected that they were to be the
scapegoats befoce tha people of Spain. They
hastened to protest, and to make clear that In
their vlew Captaln-Oeneral Blanco and General
Pando were the persons to hold responslble, for
with them has been lodged ln reallty the su
preme power for cnrrylng Into effect the pollcy
of autonomy. The arrlval of thelr Reforrnista
colloague, Mr. Dolz, who has been heralded from
Madrld as the personal representatlve of the
Queen Regent and the Mlnlstry- ln the Cuban
Cablnet. dld not lncrease thelr wllltngness to bfl
beld reaponalbla Mr. Poiz, ln the short tlme he
haj? be.n ln Havana. haa lenrned many things
that It was Impoeelblfl f?>r hlm to understand ln
Madrld. His lrnpressions of the sltuatlon wlll
be of decp intereat to Sagasta and Moret. It all
comes back to the maln questlon thnt tf any
chance remalns to Fpaln for the re-establlsh
ment of ber s<>\ereignty by means of autonomy,
autonomy must flrst he establlshed by the army.
IfOial suaslon wiil not do It. Blano. nnd Pando
are at the head of the army. and the Autonomlst
Cablnet once more leavi-s the task to them.
In the confut-lon some plana are dlscuflsed.
One Is the foimatlon of a new Radlcal party
which shall have negotiatlons with the lnsur
gents as the baso of lttt programme. M. Olberga.
who returne.l with Dola. has been auggested
aa the leader of the new movement. Whlle he
was ln Europe Olberga thcught that. slnce au?
tonomy had been granted to Caba she could
want ni'thlng more. Buck on the lsland he may
thlnk sorneihing else 1b needed. The vlolent In
translgente press seema to thlnk there may bfl
?ometblng In the pian. for it lnsinuates attacks
agalnat iJil-rga, holdlng hlm lndlrectly re?
sponslble for the death of Canovas. If a pros
pec? existed that a Radioal party could really
bling 'h" Insurgtnts to treat for peace on a
basis short of indep'-ndence, the Government
whlle 1t ostenslbly discouraged the movement.
mlghl aecretly enroura+re lt. But the scheme ls
too fantastlc to flnd any supporters. The ln
?Urgenta Wlll not treat with polltlcal partles
any more than they wiil treat with the Autono?
mlst Cablnet They are having a hard tlme ln
the held. j"t they are no mure dlsposed to com
prombM now than at any p"riod since tho ln
surreotion began.
lt is a barren prospect for Captaln-Oeneral
Blanco. The authotitlefl are exerclsing the poliev
of reprecsion so rlgldly that they may prevent
boatllfl d.-rmnstrations In Hnvana. The muzzl"d
ne4vspaper press has been subjectrd to a fresh
censorship in order to prevent suggestlons that
autonomy ls not a sueeess But measures of
this kind cannot change the fe.-ling or decelve
th" Havana publlc Into bellcvlng that progress
is made when the Oovernmeal is Btattonary.
The aathOaitlee now have fresh cause for un
easlness in the restiven^ss nf the Spanlsh prop
erty-holdlng claaaea ln the ir.t"rior towns of th
island. Th"y are agriin hol'Hng secret meetlngs
and trylrg to devlse a p'an whleh wlll enabl
them io ask th" protactlon of the I'nited Stat"s.
They are nmst actlve ln S.-.nta t'lara Province,
44h'i" atrenuoufl eff..ns have been made to Im
; auti iiuniy. They hesltate at open rebell
lon flagadnfll .Spain, yet they talk of sendlng a
repreaentatlva to vTaablngton to lay their case
unofllclally before the State Department.
