Guard Foreign Property.
GUNBOAT PADUCAH AT DAIQUIRI
Plant of Spar.ish-Amerlcan Iron Com
pany Attacked Engagement Near
Santiago Federal Artillery Used
Against the Rebels With Effect.
Havana. June 1. President Gomez
telegraphed t;'neiul Monuuyuedo, the
-commander in thiei 01 the Cuban
army, who is ut the scene of the hos
tilities in the province of Oriente,
stating that the general might permit
American marines to land on Cuban
soil to guard foreign property.
Ti.e dispatch added that the Cuban
forces then might retire from guard
ing such places and devote themselves
to pursuing the insurgents.
Interest in Havana centered on the
question whether the United States
gunboat Paducah would land marines
at Daiquiri to protect the property of
the Spanish-American Iron company.
It overshadowed completely all the re
ported occurrences from the theater
The American legation received ad
vices from Daiquiri that the plant ot
the iron company had been attacked,
but that its assailants were held In
check by forty guards, who later were
reinforced by 100 other men. This
combined force drove off the Insur
gents and on the arrival of the Padu
cah the fighting was over.
There was great excitement in Ha
vana when several newspapers Issued
extra editions announcing that a bat
tle had taken place not far from San
tiago, in which many rebels were
killed by the fire of the Cuban artil
lery. The government said there had
been no battle, but that a collision
had taken place between national and
rebel forces, in which the former's ar
tillery was brought into play appar
ently with effect. The extent of the
casualties were announced as un
known. A rumor was current In Havana
that the negroes in the capital intend
to rise, but apparently there was no
basis for It and no extarordlnary po
lice protection was ordered.
