WATCH IS BEING KEPT ON CUBA.
Ha Me Ti Interlera Unless It Shall Become
Necessary Ta Give Island Stable Gevernmeat.
Washington, Feb. 17. A close
watch on the situation created in
Cuba bj the insurrection of the
Liberals was continued by the
State Department todiy, but no
further steps were decided on,
and official reports indicated no
radical development either in the
plans of the rebels or those of the
Gorerment.
The rebels still hold Santiago
Camaguey, and minor successes
in small towns and in the country
aear-by ere reported. The
GoTernment troops, it was said,
iwere moridg steadily toward the
.occupied districts.
Owers were spent today to Min
ister Gonzales the 12 American
consular officers in Cuba and the
ommanders of the American
taaval vessels at Havana, Santi
ago and Guautanamo, to make a
thorough investigation not only
of the military phases of ,the sit
uation, but of its economic and
political aspects. It was declared
that unless made necessary by
developments, no step towards
interference by the United States
would be taken un till the reports
had been studied.
Administration officials have
made it plain that there is no
disposition- to interfere with
Cuban affairs unless they are
compelled to do so in order to
cmaratitee the' oeoole of that
country a stable government.

Some Big New Engines for the Southern.
Fifteen new passenger locomo
tives of the powerful '-Mountain
type have just been received by
the Southern Railway System
and will be placed in service be
tween Washington and Atlanta,
handling the heavy limited trains
Nos. 37 and 38, the "Na.w ori?
and New Orleans limited".
These locomotives are heavier
and more powerful than any
previously in service on the Sou
thern. The engines alone weign
316,000 pounds and with their
tenders measure 74 feet, being
seven feet longer than the Mikado
type freight locomotives. They
have eight driving wheels 69 in
ches in diameter and are of high
steaming -capacity, the boilers
having a diameter of 76 inches
and being equipped with super
heaters. The cylinders are 27
inches in diameter with a -piston-stroke
of 28 inches, the S-mth-orn

freacb User Sinks German Submarine.
New York Feb. 19. In a forty
minute battle between a German
submarine and the French line
steamship Guyane off the coast
of France, on January 22, the
submarie was sunk, according to
officers of the freighter which
arrived here today from Bordeaux.
The Guyane was one day out of
port. At 3:30 p. m. the Captain
said the submarine was sighted
some distance to port, and appa
rently endeavoring to cross the
freighter's bow in order to stop
her. The submarine fired a shot
which fell short, and thg Guyane
then turned sharply to star-board
so that the big gun mounted at
the stern could be trained on the
approaching vessel. The sub
marine fired tfcp second torpedo,
which fell considerably short and
the" third, which struek the water
close by the freighter.
Meanwhile the Guyane sent one
sheli, which failed to hit, but
struck very near the mark, the
second shot from the Guyana, the
captain said,, hit the submarine
fairly, and the underwater boat
was seen to col lapse.
highest sickness rates oi any
month of the year. Last year
this fact was well tested in New
York City. A census was taKen,
in August and another one in
Februaryof a district that con
tains almost 30,000 people. The
August census showed that .the
sickness rate was only 8 per 1,000
population while the February
rate was Z5. in otner woras,
there was . three times as much
sickness in February as in August.
The census showed further that
75 percent of those unable to
work in February were ill with
colds, pneumonia, bronchitis,
and diseases o'f the breathing
apparatus. Rheumatism and
digestive disturbances were num
erous as also were nervous disea
ses. "It appears from the foregoing
statement that February sickness
is largely preventable, therefore
there is much a man can do to
guard his health during this
month. Fortunately for those
who would take such precautions,
usnally whatever is done to guard
against one disease guards again
st several. To prevent colds
whiph is inlhe main "to create a
resistance to colds by living and
sleeping in fresh" air and by
avoiding . overheated rooms,
people with colds, overeating and
constipation will largely prevent

is quite frequently doneby having

BETTER FEELING OYER SUBMARINE DANGER
President Win Uy fie Situation Before Law
. Haters Before li'OBniment.
VVashington, Feb 19. With
the German crisis apparently sus
pended in midair i was officially
stated today that President Wil
son will rot go before Congress
"at present.'
There was no disposition to
state, however, that the President
has determined not to lay the de
mands of the international situa
tion before Congress some time
between now and the expiration
of the 64th Congress on March 4.
Despite the clearly defined lessen
ing of the international tension,
't was apparent in administration
circles that the President will not
illow the present Congress to die
without making ample provision
to meet any emergency that may
grow out of the German crisis.
It was seated that will probab
ly go before Coi gress late this
veek or early next week.
The slackening of the German
:ampaign of destructiveness on
he high seas, and the fact that
is yet no "over act" had been
ommitted involving American
oves and American ships brought
a general feeling of relief to
Washington. Tcnigbf in some
juarters there was even an in
clination to believe that some
neans may be found for prevent
ing the German situation from
developing into open hostilities
between the two nations. No one
in authority, however, would ac
cept the responsibility for ppint
ing out a method of accomplish
ing this result. But it was clear
that the administration generally
feels less alarmed over the situa
tion than it has at any time since
relations between the two nations
were broke off.
