While the possible annexation of
Cuba It unilor discussion by the loon I
people, they will rend with especial In
terest the urticla on t ho "Annexation of
Cuba" by Krrderlck Upham Adams ap
pearing In Collier's Weekly tor Aug
Collier's Introductory remark tpeaks
of the nrtlclo ns "A plain statement ot
facts which point to the peaceful nb
rorptton of tho Cuban Kepublic by the
country which made lis independence
possible, und whoso capital Is respons
ible for its prevent marked progress."
The article follows:
A study of tho conditions which now
exist in Cuba will convince tho Intel
ligent visitor that tho peaceful annex
ation of tho Island republic to the
United States Is not only Inevitable,
lut also that such annexation will not
be postponed for ninny years. TI1030

to predict that this will ho ono of tho
events (o ho chronicled within tho
next ton years, and many keen observ
ers aro of tho opinion that It will hap
pen much Eooncr; In fact, they assert
that It will speedily be forced to tho
fiunt as a political Issue In Cuba, and
that tho annexationists will win In
tho flrKt battle.
A disinterested study of Cuban af
fairs convinces mo that tho demand
for annexation will eomo from tho
peoplo of that Island, and not as a
consequence of any craving for new
territory on tho part of tho United
States. Tho situation Is Interesting.
and to an extent pecullnr, but it Is by
no meaiiB novel. It promises to offer
a parallel to the conditions which
wore developed In tho Transvaal, In
which the Invasion of foreign capital

not preserve Itself against tho ag
gressive capitalism of a country re
mined from It by thoiuutnds of miles
and foreign In every way, what shall
no expectrd nr Clllin. whose head
lands are almbst within sight fiom
IhO shores 6f Its powerful neighbor
und guardian ot the north? Tho
echoes of tho Spanish-American War
iinvo hardly died away, and tho Inva
sion of American capital has only
darted, yet those alien financiers al
ready in the field have a command
Ins Influence. Tho real cnnltal of
Cuba Is Washington and not Havana,
und Its agricultural nnd Industrial fu
ture Is In the hands of Investors from
New York, Iloston, Philadelphia, nnd
Chicago, and not In the keeping ot thu
native capitalists of Matauxaa, 'Cu
maguey, or Santiago.
In any consideration of this great
question It Is Idle, to consider wheth
er or not tliu Cubans aro capablt of
Kclf-govcrnment. lleyond doubt they
have, evinced a market aptitude as
politicians, and havu a natural fond
ness fur holding office. They cherish
the honors which come with official
promotion, and tho man with the
muck-rako need nut scratch deep In
Cuba to upturn material which will of
fend those who prefer to leave rotten
ness alone. Hut all this is beside the
question. As I have said before, ono
need not dwell long on the govern
mental qualification!; of the Cutnnr..
Even today they bold thsl- sulr-.orlty
tnly by our sufltai'c. I am noxuretl
mat an accurate census 01 inc 151mm
will show that thu whlto Cubans A,rc
lu a numerical minority. Certain It
Is that they will bo In a decided mi
nority within tho next flvo years, and
unless all signs arc misleading, the
lnllowlng flvo years will find there as
ninny Americans as Cubans.
Thoso who havu not visited Cuba
rlnco the war havo no conception of
the agricultural and Industrial revo
lution which now Is fairly under wuy.
At a conservative cstlmato moro than
$120,000,000 of American and Cana
dian capital Is already invested In
that Island, and this amount wilt be
doubled In the next two 5 ears. Shrewd
rupltalislH aro buying land In tracts
of from ton thousand to 0110 hundred
and fifty thousand acres, vast cana
fields nnd orange groves aro ocing
rlantcd, great plains or savannas arc
being devoted to tho raining of cat
tle Imported from Texas ranges, cop
tier and Iron mines are being devel
oped, a network of railroads Is spread
ing out over tormcr wuncrncsscs,
modern hotels aro Inking tho placo
of wretched Inns. American banks
and business establishments excite
tho wonder and envy of tho natives
a new Cuba Is building.
Thcro Is nructlcnlly no restriction
ot the ballot In Culm, and slnco there
Is every likelihood that tho question
of annexation will finally bo settled
at the polls. It Is well to inquire Into
tho iolltlcal predilections of tho elec
torate. For this purpose 1 will dlvldo
the voters Into scvofil, classes as fol
lows: (1) Wage-workers In clWcs
nnd on plantations; (2) negroes nnd
niulattoos; (3) tradesmen and small
merchants; (4) thoso of tho middle
class with smnll fixed Incomes; (C)
politicians, office-holders, nnd the ru
ral guard; (0) capitalists and planta
tion owners; (7) American settlers.
It may bo asserted beyond fear of
successful contradiction that a largo
majority of tho working class is In
lavor ot annexation to tho United
States. I questioned hundreds of
them on this subject and did not find
0 man who was not In favor of mak
ing Culm nu American 8tnle. Their
reason Is based on the ptn-cly selfish
and material consideration ,of wages.
To them an American Is tho symbol
of money. They know that from tho
moment tho United States terminated
the rule of Spain their wages were
rnlsed. They know that they ran got
moro money working for Americans
thun they can for Cubans or Span
lards. They bcllcvo that workers in
Iho United State receive moro pay
than In any country on earth.. In a
dim way they realltu that tho Cuban
Republic exists only hy tho consent
ond tinder the protection of tho great
nation to their north, and .that their
freedom is not of their own winning,
but a gift which can be withdrawn at
any time. '
Therefore there Is no deep and abi
ding spirit of patriotism among the
working class. They havo prejudices
and traditions, but none of these war
against annexation. An a class they
aro Ignorant nnd Illiterate. The
amount of money In their pay envel
opes make tho Mrongcr appeal to
Already a considerable percentage
of them Is employed by Amerlcau lu
estoin. When tho Ihrao majority
Is thus employed an It surely will be
In tho near future It goes without
salng that the workers will vote as
thoso who hlro them request. Slnco
Intelligent and Independent American
workmen do this very thing nt home.
It Is, reasonable to anticipate that tho
rule will not bo broken In Cuba.
Tako a Hamplo Illustration: In the
CchalloH district of Central Cuba there
aro now employed fully six thousand
Cuban workmen engaged In (be devel
opment of tho great sugar cano plan
tations and citrus groves which arn
destined to maka that section well
known. J. M. Ceballos ami other
New York capitalists. In association
with wealthy Cuban principals, nro
spending millions In this work. With
in Ihreo years they will havo on tbelr
pay-rolls fully twenty thousand native
workmen. Tho tariff against sugai,
oranges, grape-fruit, and other pro
ducts rnlsed on their groves nnd plan
tations naturally commits Mr. Co ha I
tos tn the policy nf'anncxatlon; more
over, like all normnl Americans, he Is
unselfishly In favor ot such a consum
Ilfiforo the Invasion of American cap
ital llieso laborers were glad to rccele
from forty to sixty cunts a day. When
the Issue ot nnnexnllnu arises they will
look forward with confidence to an In
creapo over tho present rate of a dollar
n day, and It Is certain that they wilt
not lio dlsnppotnteil. Tho "Ameri
canos' havo "imulo gund with ilium
thus far, und can command their votes
without using threats or adopting un
fair methods. Tho wage-earners form
it majority ot tho native Cuban vote,
and may lie counted ns icitnin In f.ior
of annexation nil soon as I no issue is
The same argument will prctall with
thn negroes and mulattocs. These 1011
btltuto fully tine-third of the popula
tion of tho Island. The steady Influx
of negro workers from the Southern
titutco Is another factor In the Eaine di
rection and annexation holds uut that
promise to them.
The middle classes are divided, and
the same Is true of the tradeimcn ami
small mctihants. It Is Impossible tu
make a forecuct ot what proportion
will bo for annexation, but they arc
numerically small compared with the
Cuban and negru voters, nnd their In
fluence will not count tor much when
the test comes.
Tho Cuban ond Spanish capitalists
and plantation owners aro almost sol
idly for annexation. Uvcry financial
inteiest Impels them to take that side,
but thus far they have not done so
openly, tho time not having armed
when it would be, politic or advisable.
Most ot them ore financially allied with
American capitalists. In all the groat
Cuban undertakings now In process ot
development, wo find a harmonious al.
Ilnncc between American and Cuban or
Spanish financiers, and it is a truism
that money knows no country.
It need not bo stated that nil the
American settles are tn favor ot n
speedy annexation of Cuba to their
native country, and they arc confident
that its day Is not far distant.
Thcro remain the politicians, office
holders, rural guards, and other em
ployees and heneflrtarle.i of the present
form of government. They arc opposed
to aaucxatloii. and they may be de
pended on to tight it by every means nt
their Command. They do not discuss
it; they do not wish It discussed. Their
great fear Is that It will be raised ns
nn Issue, nnd full well they know that
It will sweep many of them from pouei
when It forces Itself to the front and
demands n decision.
It Is almost laughable tn study the
plight of the Cuban politicians. They
long for snmo issue which will keep
the attention of Iho voters away from
tho dreaded spectre of annexation, but
they can not find one. They arc nnx
Ioiih tu play nt politics and statesman
ship, but they can find nothing with
which to play. In tho hist election
thcro was so little nt Issue that den
crnl Gomez, tho Liberal candidate,
withdrew and told his followers tu Mile
Thus Cuba Is rapidly and placidly
drifting to n condition In which the
American "oullanders' will own most
of tho productive laud of that wonder
ful Island, and In which the Inevitable
day will arrive when their employees
wilt go tn the polls and vole In a Pres
ident nnd 11 Congress which will peti
tion the United States fur admission as
ono ot Us sovereign States.
Whether It will be admitted or not
will depend not on the disgruntled
politicians of Cuba, but on the Influ
ence of those protected Interests In
the United SUtea which dread free
competition with the products of Cu
ba's wonderful soil, ,
Cuba will be ready for annexation
any time her American capitalists de
cide to raise the political Issue. The
real battle will be fought, not In Ha
vana, but In Washington, and the
weapons will be not guns, but argu
ments advanced by those American
raisers of sugar, tobacco, oranges and
other product which already are
threatened by Cuban competition,
Thcieforo 1 do not hesitate to pre
dict that whenever thn United Stntcs
Is ready to open Us tariff gate, Cuba
will bo found ready to step in. Kru
our next Presidential election Is decid
ed she will be possessed by American
capital, and the flag follows tlie title
deeds ot Its citizens.
