PORT AU PRINCE, Hayti, April
1A spirit of uncertainty and un
rest still prevails in Port au Prince.
The recent abortive attempt at a
second uprising has given the gov
ernment an excuse for searching all
quarters of the city in hopes of find
in gsuspects involved. The French
minister to Hayti, M. Carteron, has
recently shown considerable concern
about what action the Haytian gov
ernment may take against refugees
now in the French legation. Some of
these refugees themselves say the
minister has advised them to procure
pistols and ammuniton and that he
said he was unable to guarantee pro
tection. The French mnister, when
asked today with regard to this state
ment, declined to deny or affirm it
It is generally believed that the alarm
of the Fench minister is unfounded.
port circulated to the effect that the
arrival of the German cruiser Bre
men would bring about another cri
sis in which Germany would insist
upon immediate payment of a claim
made by a German resident of Hayti,
Herr Reinbold, is not confirmed. The
German attitude on this subject is
the same now as it was two months
ago when President Alexis was no
tified that Germany would not per
mit the deportation of Reinbold and
would continue to press his claim
for adequate compensation. Be
yond this there is nothing to indic
ate that the arrival of the crusicr
Bremen has brought the Reinbold
question to a more critical issue.
Reports are in circulation that
American intervention will probably
result from the present complicated
condition of affairs.
Three more officers suspected of
complicity in the recent conspiracy
took refuge yesterday in the French
agation. Squads of soldiers are con
tinuing their search for other suspects.

which reports were received, traverse
practically all sections of the country
and the figures are said by railroad

NEW YORK, April 1. Four plush

over by the Hotel Proprietors to the
members of what is popularly known
as the "Amen Corner Corporation".
At a meeting of the members Mon
day, it is said, the question of re

Avenue hotel having been necessit
ated by the demolition of that struct

there is not a president for forty

SUSPENDS NINETY-ONE MEN-
This Time Refusing to Be Vaccinated
Cause Trouble at Stanford.
STANFORD UNIVERSITY, Cal.,
April 1. -Ninety-one men were today
declared suspended for ten days from
Anril 6 for their failure to comply
with the recent order making vaccin
ation compulsory. If this regulation
is enforced it will probably seriously
interfere with baseball, none of whom
have yet been vaccinated. Three of
the crew have been vaccinated, but
the others have not yet done so. A
suspension for ten days at this time
of the year would almost mean
"flunk" at the end of the semester,
s there will not be time enough to
make up the lost work.
