Everybody Is gratified at this dear dec laration and the fact that Secretary Taft and Acting Secretary Bacon are to be sent to render aid to these ende. A few of the leaders of the Moderates arc of the opinion that Secretary Taft will nettle the matter within one week on some haass of the division of offices, but how to get the rebels to agree to anything which shall in clude the retention of President Paima's admln !-'.ration Is a serious problem. All conjecture up to the present time leans toward eoroe form of permanent American con trol or guarantee of peace and order as the only true solution of the difficulty. A correspondent of the Associated Press who ha* just returned from the front in Pinar del Wo. where he vltlted both the Insurgent and covernment troops, reports that almost all that region sympathise* with the rebels, but not to the extent of handing the rein? of government to them.

Senor Zayaa ee ye that the revolutionists hare suspected all the time that peace parleys were going on. that the f>\ -rnment was expecting help from the United States, and denounces as unfair the sudden order putting three provinces under martial law while parleys were pending. He says the Insurgents are ready for just and fair treatment, and "If the powerful nation which gave us our freedom will act as arbitrator we will give It our best aslstance that we may be able to acquire and keep the sort of liberty that flourishes in a land of truth and right. All we ask for is justice, order and legality." Three American warships are In Havana Bay to-night. Their presence Is accepted as an in dication of the fact that It Is the Intention of the United Btat«e to take a hand In Cuban af fairs, to the extent at least of bringing order out of the present chaotic conditions. The auxiliary cruiser Dixte, with 250 marines on board, ready at a moment's notice to land Held pieces and rapid fire guns, arrived here this evening. Commander Abraham E.

Bept. 15.— A cable dispatch was re ceived by the Navy Department from '~i»nfuegt>s to-day announcing the arrival of the Marietta at that place yesterday. A later dispatch from Commander Fulham of the Marietta, said that a force had been landed from that ship to protect &ugar plantation*, which were threatened.

Ir. which be says li« re ceived a cable dispatch from Cieafu*gos to-day an nouncing that Insurgents raided 9©Uda<l yester day, taking horses, and that the Marietta's forces had arrived In Cienfuegos last night. He says his Information does not confirm press dispatches as to the ruction Of sugar plantations. Fr*«m c!sj>atch*s rocelved to-day from Mr. Sleep er, chars* of UM American Legation at Havana, it appears tl.at the damage, to American property i.ear CMJOOsepas had been exaggerated. Mr. Sleeper says he received a contradiction of the report that the Huatev estate had b»en destroyed, and thus far, he say*, h» has not been able to oonrtrm the import that the Cor.atanrla estate buildings have been burned. Other advices received at the State Department are to the effect that the buildings on th« H«rml«u'- estate were not burned by the Insurgents, and it Is said the report probably aro.'a from the fact that the railway shipping station near that estate had been dfMroyed. A dispatch was received to-day from Row E. Ho!aday.

Continued from first v-.-t' Davis, Judge advocate general. None of these officers would admit that he had discussed the question of moving: troops or preparations for hostilities, but It was pointed out that the gath ering offered an excellent opportunity for an exchange of ideas between those who would shape th? policy of tho department in the event of intervention, should that extreme move be determined upon. Rear Admiral Converse, the Acting Secretary of the Navy, did not meet Secretary Taft to-night, although early In tha everlng it was announced that he probably would be at the department. Neither was any member of the military intelligence bureau called Into conference by Secretary Taft. The Secretary said to-night that while he could make no intelligent prediction regarding his nitti sion to Cuba, he hoped to finish it and to return to Washington within ten days. At the Navy Department it is learned that the Tacoma, will clear from Norfolk for Cuban waters to-morrow, and that the Dixie is expected to reach Havana to-morrow afternoon. ARMY FULLY PREPARED. At the War Department It la said that some time ago the General Staff formulated plans for the occupation of Cuba, although It Is not ad mitted that these projects bore- any relation to an expected revolution in the island. The War De partment possesses accurate and detailed maps and other information regarding Cuba and there Is nothing lacking to make tha military occupa-* tlon of the Island a comparatively easy task. It would be a case, of course, of trained soldiers against somewhat unorganised rebels, who might be expected to have no great system and no especial resources. Th« Subsistence Department and the Quarter master's Department are prepared with pro visions, shelter and clothing to meet any emer gency, and there would be no delay in getting into the island at mm*, at least 10.000 troops. fully equipped for a long campaign. Most army offlcfrs are Inclined to think that if the- employ ment of the navy does not suffice, and the Cuban revolution Increases, it will be only necessary to have a force of 1.000. or. at most, 2.000 regu lars la the island. It is believed that probably tv regiments of Infantry and possibly four or fly* troops of cavalry would serve the pur pose of quelling the disturbance. In that casa the troops would probably remain In Cuba for some months, so that the Influence of their pres ence might be felt In permanent pacification. The medical officers of the army are consider ing the steps which should be taken in preserv ing the health of troops ordered to Cuba, and havfl arranged tot the shipment of medical and hospital supplies in such a case. According to army rurgeons. there is much more to be feared from disease in Cuba than from any engage ment between the American troops and the arrmd disturbing element, and it is considered of great Importance to surround the soldiers who go to Cuba with all possible protection againbt individual disability and epidemics which may be caused by the climate. Th«* exact locution of the troops which would be sent to Cuba would depend entirely on local conditions. Of these, the War Department Is keeping advired, to the end that It may know m Just v.hat places to put soldiers. The govern ment at Havana would be counted upon to aid in all possible ways by the employment of its own troops and in giving Information of local! ti- which require surveillance. It Is known that there art* strongholds of the rebel*, and It Is planned that there would he at such places American troops in such force as would be necessary. Nothing la vouchsafed from the War Depart ment as to the particular troops which would be cent to Cuba, but they would probably be drawn from the force which at xx 1 1— breaking un of the camp of instruction at Mount Gretna will be found at the regular garrisons near New York. These- posts would probably provide strength necessary for at least the first operations. The quartermaster, commissary, and medical depots in New York would, of course-, furnish the supplies necessary, and by this arrangement there would be the least amount of transporta tion from garrisons or storhouscs to the steamer*. ARMY MEN DISAPPOIXTED Fear in Regard to Cuba's Forcer of Self -Government. (Frcm Th» Tribune Bureau. } Washington, Sept. IS. -Army offlctrs in Wash ington who were in Cuba during the American occupation and when the island government was established are following developments there ■with th« keenest Int. rest. Aside from the sig nificance of the movement of armed forces to Cuba, these officers, Who, under a military gov ernorship, assisted in the organization of a native government and saw the Cuban ship of state Baft-ly launched, are especially interested in the developments as Indicating th«» success or fa'!ir<- of thf» experiment. To Bay that there is distinct disappointment over the turbulent conditions prevailing Is put ting it mildly. There »m a peneral fear that If tho Cuban government, organized an<l started under the most fuvorable circumstances, is un able to maintain itself now the Cubans may ■ever be cajmble of self-government Though i;on» i of the others care to express their ■i««.

Political excitement over the elections s«-«^m* to bo the cause. Other officers who served for a long time in Cuba are not apparently surprised thai political excitement has disturbed the stability of the island. These officers take the view thai the Cabana vie temperamentally akin to their South American neighbors, and that it la a most diffi cult taak for them to eliminate Intense feeling from political contests. An ofaose< of th« War I>ei>urt tut-nt Mid to-day: Cuba was left to work out her own fate when General Wood withdrew his force* on May 20. 1901!, and a constitutional native government waa Inaugurated. When General Wood gave uji his stewardship the Island was on a sound basis. th« people freed from foreign Interference and their cities cleansed and rehabilitated. Even tliti raoßt pessimistic could not anticipate t*iat the i.;tti\« government would . ot be see cessful in every respect Thft experiment lias worked well for over four years, during which time we linvo given evt- O>nce of our friendly Interest lor th<- Wand by the «*ulia.ii reciprocity treaty There have been disturbances now and then, but only of n ino*«t trifling character, and of a kind with which the natlra police could ci>j>o. The Cubans them- Selves seemed to have a full realization of the benefits to be derived under a stable form of government, encouraging the Inflow of Ameri ran and foreign capital In great quantities, If these conditions are to be changed and If riot Mini revolution urn to force American Interven tion for the .protection of American lives and property there can be no one to blame but the Cubans themselves.
