Washimitov, Dec. President Wil
son has approved the plan of Secretary
ltryau to "observe" the coming Domini
can elections as outlined In The Sl'N to
day. This was evidenced to-day in the
issuance of orders to the gunboat Dolphin
to proceed to Santo Domingo and Join
the gunboats Nashville and Petrel In
those waters.
It Is lnteuiUd to send to Santo Do
mingo, probably to-morrow, two special
commissioners from the Department of
State, who will head the party of "ob
servers" at the dictions on December 15.
According to the present programme
Hugh S. (iibson, until reiently secretary
of legation at Havana, and J. II. Stabler,
attached to the I.alln American division
of the State Department, will be Mr.
Hryan's itpreseiitatlves.
It Is not the present intention that (lib
sou and Stabler shall go to Santo Do
mingo on the Dolphin. They probably
will proceed hy way of Key West, Ha
vana and iluautanauio and thence by the
gunboat Nashville over to Santo Domingo.
The Dolphin piobably will go to l'orto
Ulco and take aboard theie it number of
American olllcials in Porto Itleo who are
to Join the "observing" representatives.
