It Is known that the president vill not Intervene unless it appears ab solutely necessary, yet steps have been taken which would make such inter vo.uioi; effective. Tho ships that have been sent to Cuba are there for the purpose only of protecting American Interests and fur nishing asylum for Americans who may be In danger from the warring fuciio:iii.

PALMA'S PEACE ORDER Liberal Leaders Confer WItl Members of Government. 8,000 Insurgents a Few Miles South o Havana Are Determined to Ente the City Peace Endeavors Have Re solved Themselves Into Negotiation Between Two Opposition Parties. Havana, Sept. 18. The only result thus far of President Palma's orde for the suspension of hostilities hav been that Liberal leaders, who hlthei to have had every reason for antlcl patlng arrest, are circulating openly Ii Havana again and even conferrini with members of the government wltl regard to peace, and that such insurg ents in the field as have been consult ed, while they express themselves a. agreeable to settling matters amicably at the same time assume an independ ent attitude which cannot he said ti bode particularly well for a promp settlement of existing difficulties. In the meanwhile Clenfuegos is in 1 state of siege, communication by tele graph being severed not only In tht direction of Havana but to Santlagt as well. It Is known that Cleufuego: has not been attacked up to midnigh Sunday, but what has transpired sinci that time is not known here. All accounts agree that there an easily 3,000 Insurgents a few mllei southeast of Havana, and rumors art in circulation that they will enter tin city peaceably if they are not molested but that they will fight if they niee with resistance. All visitors to insurgent camps it Havana province return with this im presslon, but it is believed no attempt will be made against Havana until tht arrival of Pino Guerra's force, whlct now Is variously reported to be front 20 to 40 miles distant. The general Impression Is that th( presence In Havana harbor of the American cruiser Denver will not acl as a deterrent to such a movement the auxiliary cruiser Dixie having gon to Clenfuegos and the cruiser Dei Moines having gone presumably tc bring to Cuba Secretary of War Tafl and Assistant Secretary of State Ba con. The announcement from Washlngtor that American vessels of war will pro tect British as well as American in terests Is taken as applying especially to Clenfuegos, where the English owned Cuban Central railroad has beet obliged to suspend operations and has suffered considerable damage to Its property. The Western railroad, alsc a British enterprise, is not now suf fering especial damage except In tht vicinity of Havana, and It Is expected thnt traffic on this latter line will be completely reopened - today. Three representatives of the Liberal party started eastward last night to confer with the Insurgents In Santa Clara and other eastern provinces. Several automobiles loaded with more or less peacemakers went westward but were obliged to return, not having either government passes for country touring or credentials for definite ne gotlatlons. Secretary Montalvo has re fused to issue permits to various per sons desiring to make these journeys, among them Senator Sanguly, Inde pendent. General Menocal had a conference last night with Vice President Mendez Capote and arranged for a satisfactory committee of veterans to make author ized visits to Insurgents' camps. Alfredo Zayas, the president of the Liberal party, moved freely about the city nnd even visited the palace, where he had a conference with Secretary Montalvo, relative to menus of secur ing peace. Senor Zayas said he, was hopeful of the final outcome, although nothing like a definite basis for agree ment had been considered. For the present, he said, he was largely devot ing himself to scouring the release of all suspected conspirators. Ho said that by today he hoped something would have been accomplished. The peace endeavors really have re solTed themselves more Into negotia tions between the Moderates and Lib erals than between the government and the Insurgents. Tho Moderates, while entirely loyal to President Pal ma, seem now to he less concerned over his continuance In ofllee than witli the perpetuation of the control by their party. Mendez Cnpote as presi dent of the Moderate organization nnd Alfredo Zayas as president of the Lib eral party will largely be able to dom inate the situation. General Menocal Is Industriously conferring with both these political leaders. The veterans have resumed their peace meetings and the negotiations with the insurgents will be chiefly through them. Life Pays Attempt to Scare. Belolt, Wis., Sept. 18. Charles Par ker, a painter, Is dead us the result of an attempt to frighten his wife and a friend. He was in his room handling a revolver.

Will iams, secretary of the Pennsylvania state board of trade, made public cop ies of letters received from the gover nors of several states regarding the movement to obtain uniform legisla tion throughout the United States for I 2-cent maximum fare on all steam railroads. Mr. Williams recently com municated with the governors of all Ihe states with a view of obtaining their sentiment on this question. A number of the governors are per sonally favorable to a 2-cont fare and in a few instances they tell of the movements In their states to obtain tT.e passage of such legislation in the next session of the legislatures. Gov ernors of some Western states say that because of the sparsely settled jondltion of their states the time is not yet ripe for a radical reduction of fares, but that such a reform will come about when the population Increases to give the railroads enough business to justify the cut. The Western governors express their approval of the movement so far as it applies to the thickly populated states of the East. Fatal End to Poker Game. Donora, Pa., Sept. IS.
