Powera Proposal to Intervene Was
Checkmated by Bold Yankee
-Lohuok, Nov. 24.-William T. fetead
writing from Rome, under dale of Nov.
21, says:
"The answer to the question. Wbat
doea the Old World think of tbt New
World 7 bas never been made with
greater emphaeia than in tbt Kternal
City. Tht oldett Old World regarde the
newest New World with feelings of
anger, disgust and alarm almost too
great for words. The sentiment of in
dignation differs in intensity, bat it ia
universal. There is no sympathy for
the United Ktatea either among whites
or blacks. In fact, dislike of the Ameri
can seiter of tbt Philippines and a con
victlon tbat the humane , entbuaiaam
which made the war possible was a mere
mask of cant, assumed in order to facili
tate conquest, are almost the only aenti
menu shared in common by the rival
camps of tht qoirinal and of the Vati
can. You may urge, protest and rage at
you please, tbe Old World baa made op
lis mind on tho subject, and nothing
tbat cau be aald or done iu the United
Ktntca will alter its judgment. Tbt
Auioricau government baa come out of
its ring foucj. It bas thrown ila bat
into the areua of the world. It is
launched on a career of conquest, wnicb
will be all tbe more piedaUiry because
it ia maakwl by humanitarianism. Tbe
common wealth, ihey bold, has au long
plaguod tho Old World. A bright hope
for the human raco waa extinguished
when the oue moumililary power, which
eacbewed all acbemea of aggression and
aunexatiou, enrolled itself among the
common herd of conquering autes. bi
men talk everywhere in Europe. Wheth
er they regaid the old American ideal
with sympathy or evory contempt, they
all agree in Mieving tbat it baa been
abandoned, and that forever.
"The annexation of the Pbilhppine
islanda may eecm but a small tbiug, bm
it ia decisive.
'futhe course of my tour I am now
compelled to admit that I found proof
existent of a disposition on bebalf of
Hpaio, which might have been very eer
ious bad it not been checked in the bud
by the knowledge that Eogland would
have nothing to do whh it. Wbon I was
in Paris I was positively told tbat uo pro-
iiosal had ever been made lo intervene,
aud that, therefore, England had never
had the occasion or opportunity to put
her foot down on the ami American
coalition. That no doubt, was true as
far as overt action on the part of tbe gov
ernment waa concerned, liut it ia not
leea true that immediately after the war
broke out, a diplomatic representative of
the powers communicated to an Ameri
can minister at a European court in
plain and nnmistakable terms the dis
pleasure of the powers and tbeir deeire
to express tbat displeasure publicly and
forcibly. Tbia communication waa suf
ficiently serious for tbe contingency of
the ubs of the allied forcee of the Euro
pean nations for tbe coercion of the
United Elates to be frankly discussed
between the lo diplomats. The result
of tbat discussion waa to put a summary
stop to all notion of European interven
tion. " 'If you intervene,' said tbe Ameri
can minister, 'it meant war.'
" 'Yes,' rejoined bis visitor, 'and the
forces of the great European powers, act
ing in alliauce, would overwhelm any op
position which America could offer.'
1 'No doubt, said the American, 'but
you would baye to bring your forces
serosa tbe Atlantic to the other hemi
sphere and keep them there for the rest
of yoor natural life. For tbe New World
ia not going to submit to tbe Old w orld
anymore. o, sir; no. any more man
it submitted a century since, wueu iuo
odds were far worse.'
" ' Aud remember,' be added, as a
ollncher, 'that when you are bringing
your armies and your navies across JOOU
miles of tea to fight America, you will
have to count with Eogland, who is cer
tainly not friendly to your enterprise.'
"This put an extinguisher on the pro
posal. Nothing more was heard ol the
contemplated intervention. It never got
so far as to be submitted to England.
The whole design was checked at tho
very outset by tbe calm audacity with
which the representative of America
played his cards, iucludiug the trump
card of tbe Anglo-American eutente,
which henceforth will play a leading
part in all tbe dealings of the English
speaking people with tbeir jealoua and
suspicious neighbors.
"I am very glad to be aolo to set forth
the actual facts as tbey actually hap
pened. Tbey were told me at first baud
by tbe person most intimately con
oerned, and you can absolutely roly upou
tbt accuracy of the above atatemont."

In tbe week there wrre ii) deilhi,
giving an annual death rata of 111.10 per
1000, most ol them being doe to tbe
filthy condition of tbe city and the lack
of good food. Yellow fever, enteric
fever, malarial fever arid pernicious
fever are credited with causing respect
ively 1, 32, C4 and 0 deaths ; 09 are attri
buted to tntericia, 2U to dysentery, 1 to
starvation, 9 to pneumonia and 65 to
tuberculoids. Of the four cases of yel
low lever two were among tbe Hpanisb
troops in military hospitals and tbe
others among civilians. Dr. tiranner
thinks tbere are less than GO cases in the
city. Tbe report continues :
"I am at a loss to understand wby the
enormous death rate continues. Tbe
weather conditions favor a decreaee in
the death rate, and while tbe city is filthy
and dirty in Uie extreme, I cannot see
that tbe native population should be un
usually affected by sach a condition of
affairs. There are some few cases of ma
larial fever oocorriog among tbe crews
of vessels in tbe harbor, but they are
mild in their nature aud yield to treat
ment. Since September 21, there must
bavs been from IS to 20 American schoon
ers in this port. Nearly all of them dis
charged tbeir cargoes of lumber at TalLa
piedra wharf or some other badly in
fected dock, but no known cases of yel
low fever have developed among tbe men
campoeiug tbe crews. In fact, tbe larg
est death rate bas occurreJ in tbe su
burbs of tbe city, section, well removed
from the bay, those two koown as the
Cerro and Yedado showing an abnormal
ly high death rate.
Some attempts have been made to
clean the city, but aa they were not
made intelligently tbey were not effect
ive. Fire engines baye been used for
flashing eewere, bu'. aa they merely
pumped tbe water into the streets al
lowing it to drain into sewers, little
good was accomplished. Tbe work
could have been made more effective by
pumpiog into tutch oue ol tbe mioboles
or catcL basins, begiuuiug at the head
of the sewer and pumping to th ) outlet.
"An abortive attempt bas been made
to sweep tome of the streets by means of
withes tied together. Tbe methods were
aa ludicrous aa they were futile. Tbe
excresa of hundreds of homeless people
and hundreds of those w ho have homes
line the sidewalks of sido streets, and
the indifference shown to these con
ditions ia remarkable, even when tbe
character of the population is considered.
It is to be hoped that tbe city will be
made mechanically clean before the
American troops are allowed to enter."

Havana Becoming Americanized.
New Yobk, Dec. 3. A dispatch from
Havana says: The pier at Mariano
beach is uow fully completed. Colonel
Hecker, who leaves for home tomorrow,
yesterday signed a contract for the con
str uction of a pier before Casa Blanco,
in Havana harbor, and for a railroad
track from tho pier to Guanabacoa.
Tbe railroad is to be six miles in length,
nd at Guanabacoa will ooucct with
the Matanzas line cf railroad, and by
this means form direct connection with
all tbe railroads leading cut of Havana.
Havana uow look) more like an Amer
ican city than ever before dm ing its ex-
steoce. Americans come by every boat.
Tbe uuloading of traucports keeps an al
most constant procession of horses,
mules, ambulances, army wagons and
stores passing through the streets, Amer
icana, eveu in uuiform, uo longer attract
more than passing ru txo.
American business men are making
themselves felt, though, as usual, the
saloon man is the Ural to offer his goods
to the publio. Americau Sulojna are op
ening iu all parU of the city, while
gamblers are ready to opei garnet al
