Although llio United Slates government has not formally laken posses
sion nl llic Cuban yovetnmcnl, the landing of atmed foices is evidenc; that
the country intends to keep ils promise of maintaining a condition in the
inland republic thai will not force that near neighbor for whom .the United
Stales is reiKinsil)le. to the level of a South American republic.
C tilta would like to elect a President if it could Lecp the peace lent;
enough to do so. The olalilc character of the eoplc is shown by the fad
that an election is a signal for an aimed outbreak, and the United Stales
has lo bear the full reKnsihihty for all that goes on.
Intervention is for the puiose of keeping the peace. It naturally causes
man) to fear that annexation of the island is certain. This the Bulletin
doubts. Annexation of Cuba at the present lime would be a or stroke
of national politics. We do not belice the American people want Cuba
as a member of the family, and they would hesitate to support the admin
iilration that would bring it in, though sure to endorse a movement for pre
stums icace, and guaranteeing the piotection of life and property.
There aie, of course, interests which arc working for Cuban annexation,
hut thai administration will stand high -st in the esteem of the American peo
ple which holds Cuba at arm's length and makes it behac.
We believe that is what is being done by President To.fl.

The most pronounced opinion In tho
derisions of the Supremo Court of tho
United Hlaten, In regard to damages
or compensation for anything oiitsldo
of tho market vnluo of llio property
taken, Is lu tlio Mouongahcln Case,
118 V. S. 312, "2li. Thu decision In
this casu Is based on Its construction
of Die Fifth Amendment, referring to
tho clause relating to tho taking of
prlvnto property for public purpose.!,
It suys- "And tills Just compensation
It will bo noticed, for tho property, nnd
not to the owner. I2vcry other clause
In this Fifth Amendment Is personal
'No person shall bo held to answer for
n capital or otliervvlso lnfainnus
crime,' etc. Instead of continuing that
form of stntement, mid saying that no
person shall bo deprived of bis prop
city without Just compensation, thn
personal clement is Icrt out, and tun
'Just compensation' Is to ho n full
cuulvnleiit for tho property taken."
.ludgo Dolo ipiotes a number of
rases here, somo of which, It Is held-,
seem Inconsistent with tho Huproino
Court ruling. Then ho says:

Is tho view that Is best supported by
those considerations of Justice and
fair dealing which all governments
should Insist upon, not only as to
their own interests but In relation to
the Interests of all with whom they
deal, and Is not Inconsistent Willi the
language of tho amendment. This
court, however, recognizes tho fact
that tho weight of authority Is against
this construction nnd that It Is eon.
