PUNS FOB THE
To Be Made Republic
Under Uncle Sam's
UNITED STATES IS TO RETAIN
SUPERVISION" OVER FOREIGN
RELATIONS AND FINANCIAL
Proposed to Call a Convention Soon
to Draft a Constitution for
Government of the
WASHINGTON, July 25. Cuba is
likely to become a nominally independent
republic, with certain reservatioas
that will virtually make the Island a
self-governing colony of the United
States, within six or eight months
from this date.
These are the plans which have been
formed by President McKinley and the
Cabinet during the past few days, when
the President and his advisers had an
opportunity to consult with Governor
General Wood concerning the future
of the island. September 15th has been
decided upon as the date for holding
the election in Cuba for delegates to
the convention that is to be called for
the purpose "of making a constitution
for the republic. It Is expected that
the convention will be called to sit in
Havana about the middle of October.
As to whether or not the United
States is to withdraw from Cuba at an
early date, much depends upon the sort
of constitution which this convention
may think it wise to adopt If It
adopts a constitution which, in the
opinion of the administration or of
Congress, insures the carrying out of
the pledge given by the United States
to see that a stable government is established
in Cuba, and ILg establishment
of a stable government follows,"
the United States will retire during the
coming winter or early in the spring
and turn the control of the Island over
to the Cuban people.
A significant nart of the program
lies in the conditions which tne administration
Is disposed to insist upon
in the new constitution. While Ibe
sovereientv is to be nominally vestal
in the Cuban people and the rcmiblif
is. in name at least, to be free and
tliTe zr? certain
which the United States, in c;"o
ontress upholds the President, will
insist upon. These are:
First The relations of Cuba
are to be managed throueh the American
eovprnfetit at "Washington.
Second Cubn is to havo no t
doMprfi wir without the consent of the
United States". ' ,
Third The United States government
is to havp veto pnwpr over
lncrns'nr the Cuban rtoht
certain limits to be set forth in
th- new constitution.
Fourth Tb TTnitprl States is to havp
a cprtpin well defined supervision over
thp Cuban treasury.
Fifth The United States i? to retain
for a period of years, if not indefinitely,
control of the fortifications
which command the port of Havana
other important cities of the republic
If the people of Cuba see to it that
deleirates are chosen to the constitutional
convention who are wiljipe to
embody thpse reservations of American
control in the Masma Charta of the now
republic, the dream of "Cuba librc"
may be realized within the next siv
or eight months. President McKinley
has not yet decided whether it is his
duty to submit the proposed Cubin
constitution to the American Congress
for its ratification or not. but the
chances are that he will decide to do
so. The President doubtless has powpr
throneh his military control of thp
island to approve or disapprove of the
constitution, but It Is thought that he
will prefer to turn the matter over to
Congress in order to avoid criticism.
Members of the administration argil"
that the United States is pledged
to give Cuba a stable government be
fore retiring from the control of the
Island, and that this pledge must be
carried out to the letter.
It Is understood that in the event of
the Cuban constitutional convention
failing to adopt a constitution containing
sufficient provision for American
check and control, the military government
now in operation there will be
continued for some time lonsrer. or
until public opinion in Cuba shall have
been educated up to the proper point

How Wounded Men Are
Treated in Honolulu.
A MOST ABOMINABLE SYSTEM.
SOME INSTANCES OF CRUEL
NEOLECT HERE RECOUNTED.

Cases Are Handled Apparently

As Honolulu grows the need of an
ambulance service intelligently directed
and an immergency hospital is
becoming more and more apparent.
On Monday evening when Puueo
killed his wife and cut his own throat,
it was nearly one hour and a half after
the bodies of the two had been
covered before the man was on the

teen minutes drive from the scene of
the tragedy to the hospital.
The shooting was done at about 10:80
ind reported to the police station almost
immediately afterward!? Lieutenant
Maipo of the police went to the
of the. tragedy iu a hack. After
about three quarters of Bn hour he returned
to the police station and reported
to Captain Hoili. An attempt
was made to ring up Deputy Sheriff
Chillingworth, but as usual central
could not make connections. The hack
beinc quicker than the telephone, tho
lieutenant was sent to the residence of
the d.eputy sheriff.
At 1 1 :43 the deputy sheriff arrived at
the station house and immediately
?ave orders for the patrol wagon to go
to the placo on Robello lxne, where tho
killing took place. No doctor accompanied
the wagon. After a search at
the. premises had been made, Puueo,
.vho jvas found tobo alive, wasput int

After the hbSDital'wasreached.a doctor

reasonable time and the doctor soon

probably mortally wounded, but ho
night not have been. Time will often
save a life in a case of accident. Had
ime been of auy object on Monday
evening the man might have bled to
leath three or four times before re-
iving medical attendance.
With regards tho establishment of
in immergency hospital, the Queen's
hospital is a private hospital to all intents
and purposes. Thoso of
blood are entitled to free treatment
there. Others are pay patients.
There is no resident physician at the
hospital, and very often accident victims
are brought there and have to
wait from fifteen minutes to half an
aour before a doctor arrives.
At the police station there is a medicine
chest, some surgical instruments
ind lint, bandages, plaster, etc. Such
x thing as an operating table is un-mown.
One night not very long ago a
nan was pretty severely cut in an
iffray in Kakaako. He was brought to
he police station and after awhile the
loctor arrived. The man was seated iu
a chair in the corridor of the jail, near
the medicine chest. His wounds, soma
if which were in the breast, some in
he back and some in the thigh, were
iressed while the man was iu the chair,
lad he been unconscious or unable to
.it in the chair he would probably have
een laid on the floor to have his
vounds attended to.
An incident is recalled where Full
