MAGOON IN CONTKOI.
HI8 FIRST DAY AS GOVERNOR OF
CUBA I8QUIETBUTA BUSY ONE.
Announces His Decision to Postpone
Appointment of Cabinet Officers
Indefinitely Cuba to Pay Cost of
Havann, Oct. 15. Charles E. Ma
goon'a first day as governor of Cuba
passed busily, but quietly. The palace
was singularly still compared with tho
eventful days of the past regime.
Governor Magoon said to tho Asso
ciated Press that he was looking for
ward with confidence to a peaceful
administration. Ho expressed the
warmest appreciation of tho work ac
complished by Messrs. Taft and Bacon,
both In the pacification of tho Island
and laying the foundation for a smooth
and successful syBtem o'. provisional
government. Tho governor sees no
reason to anticipate further sudden
changes in the situation, or any es
pecially sensational incident. Ho is
rather of tho opinion that now govern
mental matters will bo of tho common
plnco order compared to the exciting
and rapid succession of developments
of the past two months. Governor
Magoon has announced his decision to
postpone the appointment of cabinet
olllcers Indefinitely. His intention is
to consider thoroughly tho conditions
and needs of each department and
this can be hotter accomplished at the
outset by having tho subordinate
heads report directly to himself. By
this method the governor believes he
will be better enabled to select the
ministers best fitted for tho respective
posts. There will be kept a strict ac
counting of tho expenses incurred by
tho American army of occupation as
are chargeablo to Cuba. These will
include only such expenses as would
not hnvo been Incurred but for tho
coming of tho troops to the island.
Tho last demonstration of wolcomo
to returning ox-rebels took place here
upon tho arrival of General Betan
court, who was formerly Gucrra'a
chief of staff. Betancourt has been
detained In Plnar del Rio collecting
insurgent arms and settling othei
mnttors. He is popular In tho cap
ital. A crowd of 2,000 persons mot
him at tho station and greeted him
with roars of delight. Padre Miret, a
revolutionary priest, who accompanied
tho gonoral, was enthusiastically wel
comed. Tho crowd was composed al
most entirely of negroes. With three
bands of mii3lc, they paraded through
several squares, and finally left Betan
court at his home. i
Tho City of Washington, with tho
headquarters and First battalion of
tho Eleventh Infantry on board, ami
tho Admlrnl Schley, with company 1
of tho signal corpB and tho Seven
teenth and Eighteenth batteries ol
mountain artillery, havo arrived here
General J. Franklin Bell intends tc
distribute a battalion of engineers
throughout the island for the purpose
of verifying, correcting and complet
ing tho large army map of Cuba begun
during tho former Intervention, but
not completed, except for the prov
inces of Havana and Matanzas.
Tho twenty-five marines ordered tc
the Isle of Pines by Secretary of War
Taft proceeded thither from Batabanc
on board a coasting vessel.

Investigation, in its examinations ol
