to be expected In the reduction of oper

iPLAn AND THE CUBANS
New v.mk April 18 Senator Or
Mile Plate of Connecticut, author of
what Is known ns the "Piatt nmem
ment" relating to Cuba. In nt the Mur
ray Hill Hotel. In an Interview last
night he said:
"Tho real essence of thc proposition 4
of this Oovernment ls that the CuhnM
reiognlro the right of the Unite!
States to maintain the independence
of Cuba nnd the stability of its govern
ment That right, once being recogniz
ed by the Cuhin Constitution, there
will be no trouble about the enforce
ment. All will be plain sailing.
"The property owners nnd the con
servative class In Cuba almost unani
mously desire thc protection of thl .
Oovernment, those opposed to It do
not count for much.
"Most of tho people In thin country
do not understand thc real ftellng In
Cuba The news reports from Havana
hive been very conflicting. They are
almost as tintrnstwnrthr ns the dl
Hatches from China last year about tha
"A few days ago the Piatt amend
ment wns reported defeated In the
Cubnn constitutional convention by a
vote of 21 to 2. A little later the vof
was given ns IS to 10. As a matter
of fact, final nct'.on has not been taken,
"In reality little Interest Is mani
fested In Cuba iu the convention. Many
people there have not even heard of
It. The property owners took very lit
tle interest In thc election of delegates,
believing that In any event the Ameri
can Oovernment would protect thetj
nnd their property. No Interest was
shown by the large rolored populatli.il
In the convention. Many of tho dsle
gntes havo no Interests nt stake, but
want 13 figure ns patrin". Some of the
members are old revolutionists, ofilceis
In the Insurgent army and lawyer?,
while some are mere adventurers. Som
ot them seem tn think that, the Spanish
joke having been thrown off, they
ought to rome In and tak) possession.
"Yet one-third of tho members of
the convention ate fr'endly to tho
I'nlted States and apptrrlata what wo
have dono and what wo Intend to tjj
fur Cuba; another third Is hostile to
America and the balance are Indiffer
ent. It Is the members of the hostile
element who nre making nil the nols
and attempting to create a belief thi I
Cubans do not want this government;? ''
They are misrepresenting tho fact!'
The two most Important elements of
the Cubans the property owners and,,
the working men heartily favor tho
proposals of the I'nlted States and rely
on the continued assistance ot our
"In the course of time all Cubant
will accept the overtures of the Ameri
can Oovernment In letter ant s'jlrlt.
unless the ngitutors convime t ' d tri

I believe they will nut succct'd In d
