ROOT CLEVELAND'S RECOVERY NOT AS RAPID AS DESIRED Ex-Presldent Still In Serious Condition and Grave Fears Are Entertained for Him. REMAINS AT HOTEL CLOSELY GUARDED Like Wood. N. J., April 23. Th fact that ex-President Cleveland re mains at I.ake Wood hotel after the hotel lias closed for the season, whll his physicians are in close, attendance has caused apprehension that Clove land's progress towards recovery from his reeont illness has not been as rapid as desired.

Conditions In the Little Island Have Reached Lowest Ebb and Intervention Would Be Welcomed by People. HE THREATENS TO MASSACRE NATIVES Unless Given Ills Own Way and Permitted to End His Term of Olflce Says He Will Write His Name In History Will Kill Enemies. Port au Prince. Hayti, April 23. While there have been many arrests of natives suspected of sympathy with the late revolution and political pris oners continue to be brought in in batches from Interior points, there have been no mora public shootings here. Indeed the government denies th-.it any more executions have taken place. This, however, Is incredible in view of the fact that numy per sons are known to have been dragged from their beds at night and that all trace of them has been lost. In the executions of March 13 hist President Nord Alexis achieved the double purpose of obliterating as many of his toes as he could lay hands on, and striking terror Into the bearls of those who were beyond his reach. Since then his name and that of his ferocious lleutenunt, General Jules Alexis Colcou, who personally directed tho shooting of the prison ers. Including some of his own blood relatives, are mentioned only in whis pers. All llaytl trembles before them. Alexis has made tho significant statement that If he Is not permitted to end his term of office unmolested, he will, rather than submit to depo sition, write his name on the scroll of fume in the blood -of such a mussacra us llaytl he .. r scv- lr.oe thu days of Dcsallives, once n..:own as Jean Jauues. No one doubts his ability to carry out this threat, which is under stood to be intended as u deterrent not only to revolutionists, but to any attempt at foreign Interference In the affairs of Hayti. With order restored and their Hve9 and property under the protection of shil of war, the foremost question in the minds of foreign residents Is whether tin' time has not connj tor a final solution of the lluyt'nn ques tion. All agree that Kayti, during her hundred and live years of Independ ence, has not shown great capacity for self government, and tho affairs of the island have now reached about the lowest ebb In its history. Desti tution prevails on every hand; ragged soldiers swarm the streets begg.ug piteously. and even officers, bedizened In dingy gold and silver lace, beg. cap in hand, und are profuse in tnanks for a dole of 5 cents. The soldiers beg because their pay when they get it amounts to less than liu cents a month, and what else they are able to secure la small. A general received 200 gourdes a month, equal to $27. so that in order to live he must add to bis Income us best he may. Sim ilarly, all government officials who are paid In the debased currency, are expected to recoup themselvva In some maimer.

After a Careful Exami nation. MUST PAY DAIIHAGt Measure Specifies That No Com pany Con Get Out of Liability for An Employe Killed or Injured as Result of Company's Fault. Washington, April 23. President Hoosevelt yesterday signed the em ployers' liability bill on receiving an opinion from Attorney General Bona parte that the measure waa constitu tional. The bill makes railroads or other common carriers, while engaged In In terstate commerce, liable for the In- Jury or di-ath of an employe If the In jury results In whole or In part from the negligence of any of the officers. agents or employes of such carriers or by reason of any defect or Insuffi ciency In equipment. This provision Is made aplicable to carriers In th territories, the District of Columbia. the Panam-a canal zone and other pos sessions of the United States. It I provided thut in any action brought under the provisions of the bill th Injured employe shall not be held to have assumed the risk of his employ ment In any case where the- violation by the safety of employes contributed to the Injury or death of the employe, any contract rule, regulation or de vice to enable the carrier to exempt itself from being liable under the act 's rendered void by a specific declara tion to that end. Provision Is made, however, that the carrier shall receive credit for any contribution made, to the employe or his family in the form of Insurance, relief, benefit cr Indem nity. An action , for the. rW'W vry. of damages must be csorumenced, within two years from the date of the eauso of the suit. ' in his opinion the attorney general Indicates that the, bill Is confined, In. Its scope to "common carriers by rail roads" as distinguished, from the act declared unconstitutional by the su preme court which embraced "all common carriers, engaged In Interstate commerce and foreign commerce.' The attorney general then shows through court decisions and constitu tional Interpretations that this re striction does not make the act re pugnant to the constitution, but is In line with the state statute whlc.i have been upheld In the highest tri bunals.
