Reports of the disarmament operations
show considerable delay and confusion, but
no real opposition. On the wholo the work
Is proceeding smoothly find the only com
plication encountered was met and dis
posed of today by Brigadier General Frede
rick Funston, assisted by General Agr-t-monte
of the disarmament commission. It
appears that General Albert's agreement
to disarm and disband was conditional on
the surrender and disarmament also of all
the policemen In the town of Guinea. Gen
erals Funston and Agratmonte went In on
automobile to Gutnes to straighten out the
Upon their arrival the mayor of Guinea,
Senor Ayala, absolutely refused to dis
charge the police. General Funston de
clared that unless the mayor agreed to j
the conditions an armed force would be
sent to disarm Asbert's army, which nutn- i
bers 1,1(10 men, and that this would pos
sibly result In bloodshed. Argument had
no effect on the mayor until he was told
that he could retain the police payroll and
reinstate his men after quiet had been re
stored. Marines Will Police tinlnes.
General . Funston further suggested the
sending of marines to police the town tem
porarily and this plan was accepted. Gen
erals Funston and Agramonte then visited
General Asbert at the village off Cpttaro
and found him agreeable to this compro
mise. Accordingly twenty-five marines will
be sent to Guinea tomorrow to police the
town and to receive, under the supervision
of General Agramonte, the arms of As
General Asbert. like other rebel com
manders. Is particularly anxious that every
man of hla command lay down his arms.
The reason Is that these commanders aspire
to and expect to be prominent factors la
political control after the next election, and
they do not desire the presence of large
bodies of men who might rise against
them should they be permitted to retain
their arms. Asbert's men will begin to
move In toward Guinea tomorrow and the
actual surrender of arms probably will take
place on Saturday.

the fugitive to the Adam farm west of the
little town of Monroe, where he got dinner
Monday. From there they traced him
through a com field to the E. B. Watter'

stayed Monday night. Later the members

they trailed for three days. The prisoner
is about five feet eight Inches In height,
weighs 108 pounds Is 36 or 40 years old and
wore a white hat with Initials cut Into It.
It now develops that the Turner connty
authorities discovered In close proximity
to the window through which the robbers
entered the Collins house the clear tracks
of three horses. This indicates that the
robbers went to the Collins place on horse
back and that at least some of them made
their escape on these horses, some of
which may have afterwards been aban
doned. The report of the state chemist of the

made public today the correspondence
leading up to the Intervention in Cuba.
The correspondence took place between
Consul General Btelnhart at Havana and
Acting Secretary Bacon, of the State de.
partment. An Important feature developed
in the dispatch was that intervention waa
asked by the Cuban government as early
as September 8. and that as long ago as
September 14, President Palma had de
termined to resign aa president of tbe
republic and the vice president and cabi
net ministers had also determined to no
longer continue In office. It la slso showu
that Intervention by the United States
has long been planned by the Palma gov

State department In a letter by Consul

DEPARTMENT OF STATE, WASHING
TON, Sept. 10. Steinhart. Havana; Your
cable received. Two ships trnva oeen sent,
due to arrive Wednesday. The president
directs me to state thai perhaps you do
not yourself appreciate the reluctance
with which this country would intervene.
President Palma should bu informed that
In the public opinion here It would have
a most damaging effect tor intervention to
be undertaken until the Cuban govern
ment has exhausted every effort In a seri
ous attempt to put down the insurrec
tion and has made this tact evident to tne
world. At present tbe Impression cer
tainly would be that there waa no real
popular support of the Cuban government
or else that the government was hope
lessly weak. As conditions are at this
moment, we are not prepared to say what
shape the intervention should take. It is,
of course, a very serious thing to under
take forcible intervention and before going
into it we should have, to be absolutely
certain of the equities of the cause and
of the moods of the situation. Meanwhile
we asaume that every effort Is being made
by the government to come to a working
agreement which will Becure peace with
the lnaurrectos provided they are unabio
to hold their own with thorn In the Held.
Until such efforts have been made, we are

Magnificent beyohd measure has the
season of Ak-Sar-Ben been and as a grand
culmination of the splendid functions
comes the grand coronation ball at the
Coliseum tonight. This, event, when for
the first time, the Identity of the king
and queen Is made known, la one of Iti
tensest Interest throughout the roaita and
the ceremonies always are regal In their
grandeur and Impress! veness. The sur
passing splendor of all preceding events
this year Inspires the belief that the
coronation will he correspondingly su
perior. Willie this is tne climax or tne
festivities t lie carnival grounds always
see the finale of the gay period which
comes Saturday nrght with thousands f
people engaging In a demonstration of
at least greater volume than any other
of the season.
Brilliant by day and dialling by night,
the Imperial city of Cibola, glowing with
the pomp and splendor of regal pageantry,
became redolent of the sweet, somber touch
of nature Thursday, when, through the em
blazoned thoroughfares swept gracefully
Ak-Sar-Ben's second flower parade.
You didn't detect the fragranceT Artifi

If 6,000 American Beauty roses don't give
fragrance, then truly, there was no redo
lence from this parade. But 1.000 American

satiate the soul of the most Inveterate
nymph from Fairyland,
Well, they looked so genuine that you
thought the fragrance was there.
Of such was King Ak-Sar-Ben's second
flower psrade, which marched through
Omaha Thursday , afternoon. - Crowds,
ctowds, crowds! They lined the streets as
they did for the Industrial parade Tuesday
afternoon and the electrical pageant on
Wednesday night and cheered because they
were delighted. How could they help be
ing? Typlraf Colore te the Freat.
Led by the Royal Hawaiian band that la
doing such yeoman service for King Ak-Bar-Ben,
the three autos-red, yellow and
green the typkal colors, conveying the
members of the board of governors, a 10 tig,
graceful, beautiful line ot flower-decked au
tomobiles, like one variegated serpentine,
threaded Its way through the city, starting
at Twenty-fifth and Far nam streets at 2:30. '
The Initial autoa belonged to O. W. : Wat
tles, F.mll Brandels and Gould Diets.
To impress the Judges, with superior ar
tistic taste Mrs. John Lars en made of her
machine a beautiful creation of pink and
black popples. These were alternated In
squares, the effect being equally striking
and pleaaing. The occupants were Mr. and
Mrs. I .at sen, Miss Margaret Mahony, Mrs.
Anderson of Kansas City and Miss Esther
Larseri. All were drtstvd In black and car
ried pink parasols.

Every portj'jn. of the machine was h-U'l,n

was most artistic. Mi. May Megeath and
Edward Megeath were the occupants. Miss
Megeath was dressed In white and wore a
hat decorated with palm lilies. Edward
Megeath was dressed In white.
