Havaua, Sept. 2S. Sentiment ex
pressed at public resorts today was al
most unanimously in favor of interven
tion. The few who were opposed to it
easily resig:ioel thems:elves to what
they considered to be inevitable. The
interest of the masses in the outcome
is infinitely less than would be imag
ined. Meant tw Intervene From Mart.
Prominent moderates declared to the
Associated Press today they are will
ing to accept anybody, evtu Pina Guer
ra. as candidate for president, rather
than incur intervention. Others, includ
ing Vice President Capone, said they
believed the Americans are determined
on intervention in any case, whether
Palma's resignation is accepted or
Our l.aat KITort.
That they shall make one last su
preme effort to reconcile Cuban differ
ences, were the instructions which
Taft ami Bacon toelay received from
Ion I .ate. na Taft.
The message was in response to one
sent by Taft last night, saying he was
convinced the Cuban congress would
exhibit iinpotency in coping with the
situation and intervention was the
only course left to the Tinted States.
Taft concluded his message with the
assertion it was too late to prevent

Havana, Sept. 2S. Leading represen
tatives of the moderate and liberal na
tional parties, in conference from late
last night until early this morning, de

to stave off intervention. Tnere now
appears to be no doubt there will be a
quorum when congress assembles.

Washington, Sept. 2S. Plans for

New Orleans for Cuba tomorrow have
Think Tart 1 Able.
Washington. Sept. 28. Peaceful in
tervention by the United States is be
lieved by Acting Secretary Oliver and
many officers at the war department to
be the probable outcome of the Cuban
trouble. Intervention is regarded by
these officials today as almost inevita
ble. But in spite of unfavorable dis
patches from Havana they cling to the
idea that the sending of large bodies
of troops to Cuba will not be necessary,
and feel that Taft will establish a tem
porary government and restore peace
in Cuba without the assistance of the
I'reaent Koree Sufficient.
It is generally believed In Washing
ton the secretary of war will find the
marines and bluejackets now in Cuba
and preparing to go there capable of
guarding Havana and neighboring cit
ies pending the holding of new elec
tions aud placing the Cuban govern
ment on a satisfactory basis.
Regardless of threats of dynamiting
made by turbulent leaders in Cuba
American army officers do not share
the opinion that serious doling will fol

Although the marines and blm jack
ets are not fully equipped for service
in the field at a long distance from
(he ships, they can be distributed very
generally from Havana by rail, as tent-
age and other supplies were sent with
some marine attachments. Keeping in
touch with the ships by rail, the mar
ines can do guard duty very satisfac
torily at points where disgruntled lead
ers may threaten properly and lives of

Havana. Sept. 2S. The moderate
party last night decided to make a fin
al effort to perpetuate the authority of
President Palma by determining to re-
ject the resignation of the president
when presented to congress. When
this decision was reached Secretaries
Taft and Bacon, the American commis
sioners, had already concluded to inter
vene, but they agreed tw await today's
developments, as they are anxious to
afford the Cubans every opportunity
to work out their own salvation.
I 'ill mil SteailfiiMt.
Palma steadfastly refuses every soli
citation ot Ins friends to withdraw his
resignation. Typical of this was the
cablegram he sent President Roose
velt in rcpsonse to the final urgent
message tiom the American president
that he retain the helm. In this Palma
expressed the warmest appreciation of
Roosevelt's efforts to secure: peace! for
Cuba ami the friendship he always has
shown Cuba, lie referred to his own
previous sacrifices tor Cuba, winch he
:aid had not been made in vain.
Ilrt In Had KikhikIi.
Were if possible to induce Palma to
withdraw his resignation the situa-
ioti still would be nio.-o difficult, and
intervention would continue to be the
most probable; outcome. If Palma's
resignation weie accepted it would
then become necessary for congress to
elect a pren islonal president. Such
election would be a new source of con
tention, net only between the opposing"
lolit:cal parties but probably between
the opposing factions within these par
ties. W '111 MiMt Celel Leader)?
