Concerted Action by American Re

New York Oct 7A special to the
Herald from Washington says There
Is discussion In political circles here
over the possibility that all the Ameri
can republics may In the future act
Jointly In the recognition of the bel
ligerency of the Cuban Insurgents
PanAmerican representatives here
have been anxiously waiting to see
what Secretary Olney will do and tho
suggestion has been Informally made
to the department that It would be a
good plan for the United States and
all the South and Central American
countries to act in concert either as
to the recognition of the Insurgents or
as to the independence of Cuba when
ever the proper time arrives
I has already been reported that
Mexico and Venezuela have declined to
grant belligerent rights I this be the
case the representatives of the lespoc
tlve countries In this city have not
been advised of It
I Is admitted by those concerned
however that the Insurgents musi
make greater headway before It will be
entirely safe for the United States or
any other republic to recognize them
The proposition for Joint acton Is
based upon the possibility of Insnrgen
victory In engagements which are like
