TO GIVE AUTONOMY A CHANCE.
If it Faili. in una I in n- ham Jluy Tk a
Hand in Hie War.
Wakiiixuiun, Jan. 21. Gentlemen
in congees who by their p siti m have
rea-on to be accurately informed on the
pos tiou of the administration towa-ds
C'uhi, say that ihid policy is ia sub
stance hs follows:
At the present moment it is V that
the same national cond.tinns prevail
as existed when the president tent his
last message to congress,
At that time
ii wax sT-.tea that tiie piaa of autonomy
having been inaugurated, it was the
purpose of the executive branch to give
pro;,rr time for this plan to he tried.
The administration plan was inaugur
ated only three weeks ago, so that it is
felt that there has not leeri adequate
time up fothe present moment to form
any lair judgment as to the power- of
the plan as a means of ameliorating the
c ndition of the ialand.
The recent occurrences ft Havana are
looked upon aa affording evidence of
dipcontent at the pian, but whether
this will be tuificient to overcome tbe
p an itself is not loos e I upon as estab
lished with any degree of certainty, or
even approximate ness.
kkaijy kok ax kmkrorxcv.
In the meantime, w il) clo ely ob
serving the progrei-s of the autonomous
plan, the administration has adopted
every pi eeaurion to guard against any
sudden emergency, such as an uprising
that will threaten American interests.
Thij is not expected to occur, but if it
should come it ia said that the naval
vessels of the United State-are bo dis
posed as to be in the harbor of Havana
within six hours of any crisis which
would imperil American intereits. In
order that there may be no delay Bhould
an emergency arise it is said that Con-sol-General
Lee lias been empowered to
make direct request to te coDicianders
of the warships, so that the veseels
could start on receipt of word from him
w ithout the delay incident to having
his requests paes through the official
routine at Washington. To a great ex-t-nt
the intelligent judgmen of Gen
eral Lee is relied upon as to c Kermin
tng f any emergencv requires tje pres
ence of American vessels.
Tfiis, however, applies solely to the
question ot tumult of a critical nature
and has no connection with the general
qnejtion of intervention f r the purpose
of bringing the war to a close. Such a
stp i not und r immediate consider
ation, for, as already stated, it is pre
dicted on the failure of the plan of
autonomy, which leeult, it is said, the
irovernment does not regard as estab
lished by the evidence at hand up to
the present time.
Avenged hU Bister.
Nkw York, Jan. 21 Inside the Gtagg
street stHtion bouae, borough of Brooklyn
last nignt, the policeman w-re all in
line ready to go' out for night duty. The
sergeant was reading to them a descrip
tion of Herman G. Hintz, who had just
shot and mortally wounded Otto Diehl.
He was telling the men to arrest Hint
and warned them that he wa a wild
westerner and p'obably dangerous.
Outside the station house was Hintz
doing his beet to get inside and give him
self up. He told the doorman guarding
the entrance that he had imoortant
business inBide and must pass. The
doorman declared that no one Bhould
enter until the men had been sent out
for duty. The policemen filed out past
the man they wanted and Hintz went in
side. He told "f the crime he had com
mittsd and handed Sergeant Ruthen-
burg a big revolver, from which a forty
four bullet had been discharged. He
was locked up.
Hinz had been a cowboy in Texaa for
tho last sevn year. His mother lives
in Brooklyn, and he came to vieit her
Christmas. He found that Diehl wa
treating his sister brutally and he took
her away. He went for Mrs. Diebl'a
clothes. Diehl refused to let him have
them and Hinz saya threatened to brain
him with a kettle.
"My sister is dying," said Hinz, "and
ynu'er her murderer. I guees it won't
be a crime to kill you, and I'll do it,''
and he did.
