TO ANNEX CDBA
Adfocates Pressing Their Cause in
Delegation Representing Cuba Board
Agriculture Cordially Received by
Washlnrton, November 19. A special
to the Eaii.iiier ay: The first formal
suggestion lint Mvanue . in f Ci b.i Is
desired by Ct bins w'll t-c m.iuc tu Prcs!

A delegitlon coiiblstltir; f Alvarlsto
Mantalvo, a rich Cuban pbnter, and
Francisco Flgueras, editor of the "Epoca,"
an annexation paper of Havana, and ac
companied by William O. McDowell,
President of the Cuban-American League,
arrived here tonight and tomorrow will
begin a series of calls on the President,
Secretary Root and Secretary Gage to dis
cus the future of the Island.
This delegation represents the Board of
Agricultuie of Cuba, and the primary ob
ject of their visit is to secure a roduction
of the duty on sugar, placing Cuba at
least on a par with British colonies under
the reciprocity treaty, and other conces
sions In behalf of Cuban producers as
will enable them to re-establish the Indus
tries of the Island..
The sugar Industries of Cuba are pros
trated and mortgaged to the Spaniards to
the extent of 1 19,000,000, and upon this
debt an Interest of 40 per cent Is paid. It
Is the Intention of the delegates to have a
comfortable balance with which to work
the plantations of the Cubans. The dele
gates have already consulted New York
financiers, who have promised to advance
the money, providing some assurances can
be given that It will be safe to do so.
This, of course, means that the United
States should remain In the Island indefi
nitely, and eventually annexation. While
the mission of the delegates Is apparent as
a commercial one, they would naturally
speak of the political situation to the Pre
sident and tell him of the "growing de
mand" for annexation.
President McDowell of the Cuban-American
League, who Is an enthusiastic an
"Cuba has but one future, and that Is
annexation to the United States. The
substantial men of Cuba, which, of
course, means the property-owners, are un
animously In favor of annexation. I pro
pose to take advantage of this occasion to
present the matter of President McKlnley.
If a vote should be taken In Cuba under
the old Spanish law, which Is now In
force, and requires a voter to pay taxes to
the value of $2$ before he Is permitted to
vote at the municipal elections, and 1 50 to
enable him to cast his ballot In the gov
ernmental elections, It would be unani
mous for annexation."
The Administration will receive the
delegation cordially. This is evidently
the beginning of the Republican plan to
annex Cuba as soon as possible, and thus
obviate the establishment of an Indepen
In the Philippines
Washington, Nov. 20. Tho Secretary
of Wnr spent over two hours with the
President today discussing hlu annual
report, on which ropur will bo based
Bomo of the tecs'. Important sections of
tho Presidents moisagi to Congress.
It Is understood that this section of
tho message will bo held open as long
ob nosslblo, awaiting dovclopments in
the Philippines which may change tho
status of tho situation almost nny
duy. Tho other sections of tho mess
age aro nearly completed, but to finish
tho messago beforo Congress meets
will call for a largo amount of hard
work. Owing to this fact It Is prob
able that tho President will not bo
able to go to Nashville to participate
In the wclcomo bomo of tho Tennessee
Regiment. No dcflnlto determination
has been mado, however,. It tho trip
Is undertaken it will bo made In tho
briefest practicable time.
Thero wcro a number of callers at
tho Whlto Houbo. Senator Piatt Join
cd tho President during tho lattor's
morning walk and called nt tho White
U011&0 with him. Secretary Long call
ed to pay his respects on his return
from tho West. With him was Senator
Lodgo, who had quite a long visit with
tho President. Sonntor Cullom, Sonn
tor Clark and Representative Fowler
of Now Jersey nnd Itopresentatlvfi
Loud of California wcro among tho
Washington, Nov. IS. Tho Fifty
sixth Congress, which convenes on De
cember 4, will havo a number of ques
tions of Importance to solve Tho gov
ernment of the colonics In tho West
Indies nnd In tho Pacific, tho ratifica
tion of tho Samonn treaty, tho Alaskan
boundary agreement, n new treaty with
Spain, tho question of nntl-trust legis

ttioii In roga 1 to nil or our new pos
sessions. As to tho Philippines, much
will derend upon tho iccommondatlon
of tho President, passed upon tho full
report of tho Phlllpplno Commission.
The duration of tho war with tho In
surgents will nlso bo Important In has
tening or delaying action.
President McKlnloy will recommend
that tho Inhabitants of tho islands be
given tho utmost liberty of local or tri
bal Bolf-govcrnment of which they aro
capablo under tho sovereignty nnd gen
eral control of tho United States, but
neither tho Phlllpplno Commlssslou
nor tho President has yet worked out
the details of such a government. Con
gress will support tho President in his
determination to suppress tho insur
rection nnd maintain American sover
eignty on tho islands. Porto Rico with
out doubt will bp given a civil govern
ment, modeled ns nearly ns tho condi
tions on tho Island will permit upon
tho government of territories within
tho United States.
Tho bill reported In tho Inst Con
gress for tho government of Hawaii
will bo pushed through both Houses
as early as possible, as will also spe
cial bills dealing with the shipping of
tho Islands and other matters.
Senator Cullom, senior member of
the Republican steering commlttco in
tho Senate, said today:
"Wo aro likely to havo n very inter
esting session, nnd I look for tho ennct
ment of some very important legisla
tion. Of course foreign affairs will ro
qulro careful consideration. Wo will
bo called upon to provldo stablo gov
ernments In Hawaii and Porto Rico.
Somo legislation will bo required in
connection with tho Philippines nnd
"Just what scope tho legislation for
tho latter places should take I am not
now prepared to say. Wo probably will
bo governed in our action by tho re
commendations tho President may
mako in his message.
"Tho very first, measure wo should
pass Is a bill for the establishment of
cablo communication between Califor
nia and Hawaii and then on to Manila.
I do not care who lays the cable, but I
propose to Insist that Immcdiato steps
Bhall bo taken to establish direct com
munication with our pcoplo in theso
"Thero seems to bo somo uncertain
ty about tho adoption of any radical
financial legislation on the ovo of a
Presidential election. In my opinion,
a conservative financial mcasuro might
get through, but both parties may bo a
llttlo shy of taking n position on that
question In a Presidential year. I had
a talk with Senator Allison In Chicago
and later I met Senator Aldrich, both
members of tho Finance Committee. I
think they havo formed n very reason
able bill and will endeavor to havo It
enacted Into law.
Tho Nicaragua canal bill Bhould bo
delayed no longer. It Is a great pity
this canal was not built long ago. At
this very moment thero is a crying ne
cessity for tno oxlstcnco of tho canal,
nnd tho longer wo delay it tho greater
tho suffering of our commerce and our
pcoplo located on tho Pacific ocean."
Senator Cockroll, lender of tho Demo
cratic minority in tho Senate nnd
chalnuan of Its steering committee,
"Our aldo of tho chamber will bo In
fluenced largely by tho courso our op
ponents take. Tho Republicans do not
seem able to ngreo upon nny fixed lino
of policy, nnd they appear to bo as
much nt sea as to tho disposition of tho
Phlllpplno question as Is tho President.
"I would favor Immcdiato passage of
tho Nicaragua canal bill it It provides
for its construction nnd absoluto own
ership by tho Government. Thero aro
other Important measures which ought
to bo brought forward, but as tho Re
publicans aro In control wo will havo
to content oursolves with Insisting that
duo consideration shall bo given every
proposition of a political nature."
