The force of the revolutionary  sentiment does not   appear 'to   have  as yet    greatly diminished, and there  are no signs   of the laying   down of  arms.     The first frank   outright discussion   of  the Piatt  amendment as  bearing on the situation" will appear  tomorrow    in   Diario   de  La TVfarima  as follows:     Some people admit the  present rebellion as over.   We' do not  will bo a failure. Jn the fewest  words intervention would mean the'  loss, or at least, the dnninuation of  its expense, the lack of intervention  were thc war to continue long would  be equivalent to th"e amount ol guarantees which . up lo the present induced foroig'n capitalists to invest  their   fund.s in  Cuba.  If instead of warranting peace, solvency and security in Cuba, the  Piatt ai'iicndment is to be restricted solely lo the protection of American mteiv.^ls, it is 'almost' certain  "English, American ami Spanish money would have not libcn invested in  Cuba in such amounts as they have  boon    during Uio  past  year."
