Cuban soldiers have fact all they need is tbe vast forest it- self bursting with luscious wild fruit and alive with the notes and ing of birds A regiment wearily cutting its path through the tangled underbrush will call a halt in the midst of some verdant space just be- fore the days fades are the commands and at the der saddles are lifted from the horses hot backs and they are put to forage on the leaves of the trees The bugle sounds again and tbe soldiers scatter into the for- est leaving only the sentries guarding the saddles which is about all the gage they having no company wagons with

hard work in behalf of the recognition of insurgents He had an in- with nearly every silver crat upon the senate floor and him to sustain the minority report first because it is a democratic ment and in the same line taken by that party in the house of tives and secondly because liis pathies are earnest in behalf of tbe in- Mr Bryan insisted the ses of the people are almost unanimous in favor of the recognition of the Gomez government and public opinion will justify it regardless ot of the foreign powers The fact that the European governments do not prove our policy in this respect is in it- self a good reason why it should not be abandoned according to Mr Bryan's They have n5 business to inter- fere in American affairs and the er they are told so the better it will be for both

passed sucU a resolution Had this been acted on there would today be no Cuban question for once able to buy supplies in our market on the same footing with Spain the brave Cubans would long ago have driven every Spaniard off the island But then as now the voice of the money-changer silenced the of common sense and of justice The president disregarded the people and ignored a co-ordinate branch of the government and the great navy of this proud and free republic was made to perform the service of a policeman for the convenience of Spain Thank God the time is at hand which will end Spanish
