NEWS AMAZING TO CUBANS.

Key West, Fla., Oct. 4. An opposi

Insurrection In Cuba Is awaiting Undo
Sam's army of Intervention, according
to a wireless message rocoived hero
late tonight from Havana. Tho new
enemy Is yellow fever.
According to tho dispatch ton now

of suspicious cases are bolng closely
watched. The first roports sont out.
tending to minimize tho extent of the
epidemic, are now acknowledged to
have been purposely toned down.
It Is said that the Amorlcan forces
will find Havana in a much different
sanitary condition from that which ob
tained under Goneral Wood's rule.
There is said to have beon a decided
lapse toward tho old, inefficient condi
tion under Spanish rule. Major Jef
fcrson R. Kcene, who loft hero tonight
for Havana, expressod no surprise at
the report of the serious condition of
affairs, but declared that tho sanitary
department of tho army of occupation
is ready to meet the situation and will
doubtless bo doubly reinforced as soon
as Washington can bo acquainted with
tho real gravity of tho situation.
Palma's Early Request for Interven
tion Surprises Them.
Havana, Oct. 5. That ox-Prostdont
Palma early in Soptombor asked for
American interference in tho Intcrost
of foreign lives nnd proporty Is not
consldorod surprising hore, In view of
his subsequent request to Mr. Sleeper,
the American Charge, and Commandor
John C. Colwoll, of the cruiser Denver.
Dut that he suggested calling Congross
to ask for American Intervention as
early as September 8 Is considered
surprising and that on September 13
he officially asked for Intervention
and had then Irrevocably decided to
resign causes amasomont.

Intervention reveals tho truth of the

Tho price of logs on the Columbln
river has advanced remarkably during
tho season. In tho Bprlng logs of tho
best class could bo had for $7 and $8.
Now theso snme logs cost $11 and $12
per 1,000. Tho remarkable demand for
lumber Is responslblo for the Increase,
together with tho somowhnt rostrlcted
supply. With every mill cutting to Its
fullest capacity, logs nro bound to ad
vance. Soma say the situation Is such that
loggers could got what they might
chooso to ask for tholr product, on
account of the small amount of saw
mill timber available, but It Is given
out by mlllmon that if the prices aro
raised any moro tho mills will close
down, as prlcos nro already up to the
limit. That tho prlco of lumbor could

argued that If a booBt woro given the
