Havana, Sept. 29. The American provisional government assumed p8 session of Cuba today, when .Secre tary Taft'8 proclamation declaring himself provisional governor was for mally Issued. The proclamation was published in the official Gazette and thousands of printed copies were dis tributed in Havana and elsewhere. The terms of the proclamation give gener al satisfaction, especially on account of the moderation In which It Is phrased. Us statement that the provis ional government of Cuba Is under taken only on account of the neces sities of the situation, and its promise that the provisional government will be maintained purely for the purpose of restoring rxace, order and public confidence, until a "permanent govern ment Is established. -o one appears to doubt the good intentions of Presi dent Roosevelt and his representatives and there Is no apprehension of any serious trouble or resistance to pro visional government In any part of Cuba. While Governor Taft has not yet taken possession of the palace, this Is only because ex-President Palma will not be ready to vacate the omc:r.i residence until Monday and Taft de sires to do whatever he can to suit the convenience of the ex-presldont No disturbances of any k'nd occurred last night. . Business Imprests hJM are gratified at he change of govern ment. A striking feature of the provision al government Is that the Cuban flag has not been lowered. This estab lishes the precedent in the provision al government and the protectorates. Taffs Proclamation. Governor Taft's proclamation fol lows: "People of Cuba: The failure of con gress to act on the Irrevocable resig nation of the president of the repub lic of Cuba to elect his successor, leaves tne country wuuoui a govern- ment at a time when great disorder prevails, and requires that, pursuant to request of Palma, necessary Bteps be taken In the name and authority of the President of the United States to restore order and protect life and property in the Island of Cuba and the islands and keys adjacent thereto, and for the purpose of establishing therein a provisional government. The pro visional government hereby establish ed will be maintained only long enough to restore order, peace and public confidence, by direction of and in the name of the president of the United States, and then to hold such elections as may be necessary to de termine on those persons upon whom the permanent government of the re public shall be devolved.

Secre- tary Taft has cabled from Havana to Act Ins: Secretary Oliver at the war department to send American troops to Cuba In accordance with the pro-1 gram already arranged. Secretary I Oliver is trying to communicate this dispatch to President Roosevelt off Uarnstable.

Secretary Tuft had probably a thorough understanding of what should be done in the present emergency before Secretary Taft sent his message this morning for troops, There will he no delay In starting after the necessary formality of the president s approval. Therefore the entire program is being put into exe cution.

The first train over the M. & O. from Mobile arrived this morning, having left Mobile yes terday morning. Geo. K. Warner of St. Louis, treasurer for the Southwest ern Railway company, with his family was a passenger from Mobile. "The storm was not so bad as in 1893, ac cording to my opinion. I went through them both," said Warner. "The storm Thursday was a freak of wind comlns from the southeast and sweeping over the city doing great damage to wharvts, harbor and naval stores on tho water front. The damage I think probably will reach $12,500,000, sixty percent or more of the wharves and docking facilities is damaged. Another Makes It More Graphic. Roofs were torn from houses and windows were blown out. I know of only three deaths and they were nc groes. The storm blew at the rate of fifty-five miles an hour and was not of as great force or effect as that of 1893. There was no tidal wave. The wind simply forced the water from the gulf into the city. The damage coeld be seen all along the line from Mobile north to points In Mississippi, corn and cotton being greatly dam aged. C. S. Clayton, a Pullman conductor of the train, made the following state ment: "The damage cannot bo told yet.
