CUBAN GOVERNMENT ABANDONS ITS STAND FINALLY DECIDES TO TREAT WITH ARMED RIBELS IN FIELD Both Sides Brought to More Tractable Frame of Mlud by Verbal Ultimatum of Secretaries Taft and Bacon Told That Unless They Consented to Fair Arbitration the United States Must Compel the Same by a Temporary Military Occupation. Havana, Sept. 26.-The government party to-night abandoned its basic con tention that it is impossible to treat for peace with armed rebels, and proposed to negotiate directly with a committee of its opponents. It is agreed to leave all points upon which understanding is not reported to the final arbitration of Secretaries Taft and Bacon. The gov ernment first suggested that it would treat with the liberals if they would lay down their arms, but the American commissioners ruled that this stipula tion was unfair, and with hardly a word of discussion the moderate repre sentatives accepted this view. While this phase of the controversy was wholly unexpected, Secretary Taft was greatly pleased therewith and he made the following statement for pub lication: "My impression is that we are much nearer a solution of the trouble to-night thai we were last night." It was announced also that the nego tiations to be opened between the- com mittees representing the opposing par ties would be without reference to the terms previously proposed. The time and place for the first meeting is to be determined by Secretary Taft to-morrow. It Is unquestionable that both parties were brought to a more tractable fram-j of mind by the verbal ultimatum is sued by Messrs. Taft and Bacon to-day in the name of President Roosevelt, that unless they consent to fair arbi tration the United States must compel the same by a temporary military oc cupation. Such an occupation it was declared, would not mean American sovereignty. It would continue on'y until new elections had 'been held, the new government firmly established and order restored. Within a hour of the assembly agreed, at the end of a stormy session to the suggestion of treating; with the liberals. The conservative moderates threatened the disruption of the party unless the radicals consent ed to treat with the American commis sion, and this also is believed to have had an important 'bearing upon the moderate decision. It is understood- to-night -that Presi dent Palma does not intend to with draw bis resignation, but it is predict ed that congress will table it indefin itely. The decree convening congress on Friday for the purpose of acting upon the resignations of the president, vice (president and others was issued to-day. . .( .

ENDORSES NEW SPELLING SIR JOHN OORST LAUDS PRESI DENT ROOSI VELT'S EFFORT. Former British Minister of Education Thinks the English Language the Worst Spelled In the World Reform In England Will be Very Slow If at All Feasible In International Affairs. . New York, Sept. 26. The Right Hon. Sir John Gorst, who for seven years was minister of education in Great Britain under Premier Salisbury, ar rived to-night on the steamer Majestic. He is on his way to Chrtstchurch, New Zealand, where he will be a special agent of the British government at,an exposition to be held In the latter part of October. ' Sir John when asked what he thought of simplified spelling said: "In my opinion the English language is the worst-spelled language In the world. President Roosevelt's attempt to cor rect It is a very laudable one. The German nation is far ahead of us, as for the last five years they have had a method of simplified spelling." Asked as to the possibility of the in troduction of any form of simplified spelling In the English schools, Sir John replied: "Well, probably simplified spelling will amount to as much as the decimal law has in England. The Eng lish people are slow thinking, and some of them laughed when President Roose velt sought to simplify spelling, but he Is more broad-minded than some of them. Well, we're an old nation and take things slowly. It seems to me that the new spelling would be most feasible in international affairs." ro h tip up i he lie nr.
