New York, Nov. 22. Ethan Allen, president-of
Uo Cuban .League of the United
Slates, has ismed the following a ddree w
members or the league:
lhe Cuban problem which has so long
rested ab a blight upon the conscience

within our timely action rounds out their
ea.is of trial with de-erved recompense.
Tuls great consummation the American
People tuould foitinvitn demand from their
political lepreseutatives. The cowardice
oT wealth seducing our official t inaction
while murder has been done, the insin
ceilty of rulers inventing special pleas
U cover their treachery to national duty,
the opeu and unnecessary Interference
with the legal commerce or the country
as an act of grace to brutal Spain, and
making us hei ally against tnose following
our historic teaching, have all run their
courses to the wounding of national pride,
and to our utterly exhausted patience,
liut time and the Cuban swoid have
brought the crisis which Toreruus a final
cure, in Cuban Independence. This ib
the hour of American opportunity.
Infective woik can be done, which If
well done will go far to excuse our past;
neglect. Congress Is the objective iwlnt.
Cuba should to put on equal terms with
Spain regarding supplies from our bur
dened magazines. F loui, cattle, horses,
ana arms from American soil, bj night
aud day, go in steady tush to the Cuban
chores for the support of the foiees of
monarchical Spain, none of these can go
hence to feed the starving patriots of
republican Cuba. lhe soldier, we nave
thus fed use the life we give them to
erase from the earth an entire popula
tion, by deeds or horror whose lecltals
freeze "the heart of the clvilued world.
Unmoved, we have so far heard the wall
or the victims 01 have furnished new
blades for Spanish hands to lusuie the
"work of Cuban decimation.
ttelllgerent rights to Cuba will quickly
change this brutal panorama. The Sen
ate has already ordered its verdict lor sue li
rights, and the lower house should jespoiid
before the new year comes in. The Cuban
league of America now calls upon its
entire ramily of E00 branches to unite as.J
one voice in a demand njion their Con
gressional representatives to vote this
waj. AH other organized friends and
also individuals, or whom there are hun
dreds or thousands sympathizing with
Cuba, arc urged to the same activity.
Following belligerent rights, independ
ence is assured. Ee not deceived by tne
Ignorance or lhe hypocrisy of those who
argue against this remedy
There are other
ur caret, but belligerent
most available, and the '
rights is now the
ntiMit effective. This will enable Cula to!

Letlt be granted; but what ilamoage can
result to our commerce when this senrcJi
must "be limited to tiic coast of Culm, and
then for the contrabands of war prohibited
after Spanish proclamation of a blockade;
-which, by the way. has never yet been
given? Cnreasonableor unnecessarysearch,
clearly for the annoyance of American
commerce, is as much forbidden after
belligerency as before. Let such baseless
apprehensions die in the utterance. Since
no official notice of war, nor of Nockade
of Cuban ports, has been given to this
nation, there is not, nor has thre been, any
legal restrictions upon our free commerce
with even the insurgents; yet, as a mat
ter of grace aud a a special favor to
Spain, our Executives have interfered with
our peaceful and legal commerce to the
great Injury of our citizens.
Is it not time to change these methods?
"With an Executive who knows his duty
and is willing to do it, all this may be
rightly changed as our statutes are now
formulated. In the absence of any offi
cial knowledge of war in l"uta,call liome
our police or the seas and permit legiti
mate trade to run its course. This iiollcy
or "doing nothing' with our gunboats to
trammel our trade will set Cuba free, let
ting loose as it would the floodgates of
American generosity toward the insur
gents. But, as this plain ruad of duty
seems too much to expect from American
Executives, then belligerent right, when
granted by Congress, will surely bring the
victory to Cuba for which the heart of
Christendom has prayed.
But autonomy is interposed to stay tlie
handof destiny Toolate' Too late! Spain
by perfidious diplomacy how tries to win
the triumph her sword ha failed to gain.
Itis an impudent attempt to repeat history.
Twenty yearn ago, practically ibis same
offer of autonomy was made, and yield
ing to the tempter, the insurgents then laid
down their arms. How basely that promi&e
was betrayed by Spain, the world knows
aud the pre&eul revolution certifies. This
bcheme of Iniquity surely cannot succeed
the second time Spain extends the hand
of pretended kindness because she is com
pelled to do so; and granting as little as
possible, she will fulfill even that under
compulsion only. lieu this compulsion is
dissolved by peace, then will ciine the be
trayal, and then again another revolution

klnd ? Over the past she seeks to spread a
garment spangled with pledges of re
pentance; but with this she cannot give
back the lives she bus needlessly destroyed,
nor blot from memory the unutterable
horrors which crimson her record. Tlie
viper is known to exist still beneath the
cloth of tinsel.
It would be tlie most wicked chapter of
the century to permit rehabilitation to
Spain in Cuba. The burglar foiled in his
villainy is not the man to place in charge
of the bank he ivould have ruined. And
the America, whether au official or a
private citizen. tvIio leuds his aid to this
scheme of Spanish perfidy Jeopardizes
his reputation as an honest man. Autonomy
Is only another name for imposition and
fraud. So say those who have the best j
cianii to i-peaK lor luuiui interests, xne
btatosmen or Cuba repudiate it.
Her commanders in the field say "In
dependence or death." And lately the
exiles of Culm, who together iepre.ent moi e
than half or the property values of the
entire island, merchants, bankers, and
planters, who today bear the burdens
of the ivar by their contributions to its
treasury, at a mass meeting held in this
city In vciy decided language declared
that no offer from Spain will be consld
eied short of absolute independence.
The threat of war is put forth at times
to check the generous Impulses of our
people. Here the Insincere craven Is
betrayed again by the absurdity of the
proposition. There cannot be any war
with Spain, because we giant belligerent
rights, siuce in all history this has never
been considered as a casus belli between '
nations. Spain granted belligerent rights
to the Confederate States, but our nation
did not treat it even as a grievance. AVe
are a -peacerul people anddonot want war.
No man who Is above the biutein reeling
does. But there are some things worse
than -war. and among them Is a cowardly
subset vleucy to such national crimes as
Spain enacts in Cuba.
But even If cause for warexisted, Spain
cannot make war on us, and will not.
From her nature she will bully, from her
-..-. . .1 . ...... ,.-
necessity she must threaten, but strike
she never -will. HerveSbels must uoss the
in. can To assail us. "With a coaling capac
ityfor an qc-oapfvoynge only, -ivhut can
they 'aoTTpaTi nrrlvairbut lay ns harmless

Spain cannot rccoal upi.n our coast, nor
hi Cuba, nor in the vicinity. If she lincl

which the lias not, to bring them against
us if or necessity to sail for a capitula
tion. All this must be known to the au
thor, of this war clamor, ami to reflect;
upon it, is to dismiss it as an unim
portant; fnctor iu the controversy.
For this reason this league urges again
upon the American friends of Cuba united
and energetic action, by voice, letterb,
telegrams, mass meetings, resolutions and
otherwise, in a command upon Congress
for belligerent rights, the one move
-which forever .confounds the plans of
Spam and opens the -way to tt.e free

Tlu Attorney General enters into the
matter at this point, because his depart
