the Cuban Republic, Is unquestion
ably the choice of the Cuban people.
He goes to his ofllce with all the ftd

The ability of General Gomez to
succeed where Palma failed Is to bo
demonstrated. Tho new President,
who Is (15 years old, left u rich plan
tation to gain his first military ex
perience as a division commander In
the lislng of lS!r,-'J8. Ho was a
member of the Cuban Assembly nnd
v.us appointed and afterward elected
Governor of Santa Clara Province.
In 111 O.'i bo opposed Palmii for the
Presidency but resigned as a candi
date on nccount of alleged fraud
against him, and when tho revolu
tion against l'alma a year later took
form lie was arrested for conspiracy,
being released when tho Americans
returned. General Gomez announces
a plausible progressive policy, which
has some doubtful radical features;
and there is no little distrust of his
qualities as a constructive states
man: but he has a splendid opportu
nity to confound his detractors.

I, too, protest against the Indecent,
Immoral pictures shown at some of

now In Honolulu. I refer particular

they were ashamed lo look up at

night after night hundreds of school

authorities to put a stop to them.

mentioned that should ho suppressed.
