to arrive in Paris XMrsday. They
will be guests" of William Graves
Sharp, American ambassador to
France, and Mrs. Sharp.
Berne (Via Paris), Feb. 13. Am
bassador Gerard announced today that
he probably would elave for Paris on
Tuesday evening with the immediate
embassy staff. He informed other
Americans desirous of returning to
America that they were welcome to
accompany him, but must make their
passport and other arrangements
though the legation here, which now
has sole jurisdiction.
In consequence, the legation has
been thronged by about a hundred
Americans whose passports are good
only for Germany and neutral coun
tries and must be validated for France
by special Slate department authoriza
tion. Anxious crowds also inquired
about railroad communications, espe
cially sleepers, which supply appar
ently will prove inadequate if every
one wants to leave with Mr. Gerard.
Berne, already flooded with Ameri
cans, was today awaiting further in
flux with the impending arrival of an
other traitiload, including consuls who
were unable to catch the ambassa
dorial train, because Mr. Gerard was
cut off from telegraphic and mail
facilities and could not instruct them
ill time. In addition, another contin
gent of civilians who could hot leave
Germany is expected..
Mr. Gerard maintained his reticence
today and merely shrugged his shoul
ders when shown ah alleged semi-official
announcement in the Cologne Ga
zette declaring that Germany expects
war with America.

Former Head of Republic, Gen

in Island.
Havanna, Feb. 13. President Meno
cal has just issued a decree authoriz
ing a call for volunteers between the
ages of 18 to 45 years to serve for a
periotf oPninety days. Tt is rumored
that the former president, General
Jose Miguel Gomez, has landed at
Camaguey and that Lieutenant Col
onel Quinones, commander of the
Camaguey forces has revolted with
all his men.
Communication with Camaguey
still is seveyd and no train has ar
rived from there since yesterday.
The president's decree calling for
volunteers announces that it is not
necessary for those responding to be
Cuban citizens, nor that they should
be able to read or write Spanish.
Fighting is also reported at Canas,
forty miles from here.
General Gomez is one of the leaders
of the liberal party in Cuba and was
often mentioned as a possible candi
date for re-election as president. He
was once quoted as saying that the
elecVion of President Menocal would
mean revolution. It was reported that
he left Havana aboard his private
yacht on Friday just before the revo
lutionary outbreak.
Bill Proposes Duty
On Sugar from Newly
Acquired Islands
Washington, Feb. 13. Appointment
of a commission to investigate condi
tions and needs of the newly acquired
Danish West Indies is proposed in a
bill prepared by Senators Stone,
Hitchcock and Lodge. The bill would
provide for a provisional government
administration of affairs pending the
commission's report.
Under the terms of the bill tariff
regulations of United States would be
applied to the islands, provided that

Mr. Wurslin's ten American asso
ciates, about half had decided to re
main in Germany whatever happened.
The other American is a New York
business man, who said the food
situation was very bad in Frankfort.
He told harrowing stories of the hard
ships undergone by the people, who,
he said, were utterly weary of the
war, but entirely devoted to the mili
tary leaders.
Both of these men asserted that the
break between Germany and America
had caused no excitement, that Ameri
cans in Germany were being well
treated and that no apprehension need
be felt for the welfare of those left
behind.' While agreeing that most ar
ticles of food were still to be had by
persons with well-filled purses, tliey
said the poorer classes were suffering,
but that the country is not near flic
starvation point.
Fourth Guard Organization
Coming to Fort Crook With
Field Hospital.
Although February 21 has been set
as the day when the Fifth regiment
will bem ustered out of the federal
service, the signal corps of Fremont,
commanded by Captain Jess, will be
allowed to leave Fort Crook February
16. This has been decided upon by
Captain James Everington, senior
mustering-out officer, and as a result,
army officers are now turning all their
attention to the Fremont organiza
tion so that it can leave the post on
the day set.
The reason for mustering out the
signal corps is that it is a separate
organization and not connected with
th Fifth regiment. At present there
arc sixty-three men and officers in
the organization. Thirty-two horses,
which the corps used on the border,
will be taken to Fremont for the
wire men to use in their drills.
Word received at Fort Crook is
that Nebraska field hospital, the only
Nebraska unit now on the border, will
not be sent to Fort Crook until the
Fifth rciment has left. With the field
hospital will come the Fourth South
Dakota infantry, which will be mus
tered out at Fort Crook.
Captain James Everington, detailed
Tuesday by the War department inspector-instructor
of the Nebraska
National Guard, will make his home,
following the departure of the troops,
at Lincoln. 1

j Formal Notice from Berlin that

Washington Officials Now Fear
that Overt Act May Come
at Any Moment.
Washington, Feb. 13. Anotiier
communication has been sent to Ger
many throimh the Swiss minister
j here, looking to the release of the
American seamen taken to Germany
I on the prize ship Yarrowdale and now
j retained while, Germany seeks as
i surances of the status of it seamen
in American ports. The exact nature
of the communication is not disclosed,
but it is believed to be a demand for
the release of the Americans.
Washington, Feb. 13, Berlin's for
mal announcement that the time has
expired for all exceptions in the cam
paign of rnthlrssiiess, turned attention
here today to the questions which con
front the American governmei.t, in
whatever next steps may be taken to
meet the situation.
President Wilson abandoned his
usual morning game of golf and re
mained at work in his study. In the
afternoon the cabinet met and went
over the situation.
Among the questions now being
carefully considered are:)
The proposed conference of neu
trals to outline the rights of the na
tions not engaged in the war. This
has not taken form and its exact
status has not been divulged; never
theless it is known the idea has not
been abandoned.

American merchant ships. The pre
ponderance of opinion among officials
who have advised the president on
this point favors having, the navy

A reply to Mexico's suggestion for
embargoes on food and ammunition
to the belligerents. '
Any or all of these questions arc
expected to be decided in the near
future. i
While it was reiterated today that
the president would not be rushed
into war, it was plain that all officials
realized that the muclh. feared overt
act might come at any time.
Official Warning Given.
Amsterdam, Feb. 13. (Via Lon
don.) All periods of grace for neutral
ships entering the zones announced as
prohibited by Germany have now ex
pired, according to a Berlin official
statement, received here. The state
ment sa'ys that immunity ceases in re
spect to the Atlantic and English
channel zones on the night of Feb
ruary 12, for the North sea zone Feb
ruary 6 and for the Mediterranean
zone on February 10. It continues:
''Frorn now on, therefore, in all
prohibited zones the warning which
has been issued is in full force and
shipping can no longer expect individ
ual warning. Vessels which enter the
prohibited areas do so with a full
knowledge of the dangers threatening
them and their crews. It is expressly
stated that all news spread from
enemy sources about any torpedoing
of neutral ships without previous
warning, before the dates mentioned
for the various prohibited areas, is
"The periods of grace mentioned
were also in force for enemy pas
senger vessels because it was possible
that they were carrying neutral pas
sengers .ho were perhaps ignorant of
the new blockade regulations."
Issue Up to Wilson.
London, Feb. ."President Wil
son wishes to make an attempt to
break the German blockade; the
American government must be re-'
sponsible for what happen," says the
Berlin Vossische Zeitung in com
menting on tha report that two Amer
icn merchant vessels had left for
the blockaded zone, according to the
Exchange Telegraph company's Co
penhagen correspondent.
The correspondent reports that the
announcement of the vessels' depar
ture, had caused a pronounced sensa
tion in Berlin.
The American vessels referred to
doubtless are the unarmed freight
steamers Orleans and Rochester,
which sailed from New York for
Bordeaux on Saturday.
