If each nation seizes a poit and collects the revenues Turc Tai Ticao government will lie without to def to total its Oil affairs revolutions Are now threatened and american warships Are camped around the delinquent Republic belgian demand the most pressing of debts. San Domingo Republic of Santo Domingo March news of the postponement by the United states Senate of action on the treaty Waltl Santo Domingo makes the situation Here acute and an internal uprising seems to be imminent based on the cry that president Morales has been discredited in the United states. Presi Dent Morales states that he is pre pared to put Down any revolution but that a More serious matter in his mind is foreign complications growing out of Belgium s demand presented on March 21. Belgium wants the customs receipts of a port of Santo Domingo to the extent of a month Accord ing to a former agreement on which no payment has been Flade for three years. This first demand is construed As a direct result of the failure of Tho treaty Between the United states and Santo Domingo. President Morales anticipates a similar demand by other foreign Powers which he will be help less to resist. He he wants to pay All Republic s debts but sees the ruin of the country with every port in the hands of a different foreign Power and no Revenue for the govern ment. While he sees no Light ahead he has Blind Faith that right will in the course of an interview with the associated press president Morales to Day said is entirely possible that the United states May have to Send an ultimatum Here on account of the dominican government being unable though not unwilling to meet its obligations. is utterly impossible for the government to pay the sums due foreign nations unless the United states can procure from foreign Powers a postponement of their de mands. Otherwise these demands will be pressed. I have no physical or moral Force to resist them. With the custom houses in the control of the United states the resources of the Island will develop speedily and All de mands will be paid with the result that the country will be educated to peace and permanent with two dominican ports now in the hands of the United states and the failure of the treaty dominicans be Lieve that a grab game by foreign Powers will begin once.

With the seizure of dominican ports by foreign Powers is argued hero that the Monroe doctrine wiil be Nulli fied As regards this Republic. With the United states in Possession of two ports would not be logical is argued to oppose the seizure of other ports by foreign Powers. the same time the Only Hope of president Morales is that in some Way the United states ran secure a postponement of seizure by european Powers. No Steps to end have been initiated Here no reply has yet been made to the belgian demand. President Morales Lias about 1200 men under arms ready to crush the first internal uprising b should the a Tisl oms houses be seized he speedily would be without funds with which to pay his army which would immediately desert.
