The business men of any town have
the making of the town, and it is to

If the Maine question was out of the
way. but it isn't, and isn't likely to be
for some time to come, a suggestion
that has been made to President Me
Kinley by Representative Beach, of
Ohio, for-the settlement of the Cuban
question, would doubtless receive more
attention than is now given to it. Mr.
Heach projwses that the United States
and all the other governments of Amer
ica join in demanding that Cuba be
pluced in the hands of a receiver, who
shall have full authority to administer
all of Its affairs. There are precedents.
For Instance, the powers of Europe
placed Prince George, of Denmark, on
the throne of Greece to save that coun
try from utter destruction; similar ac
tion was taken in Creto: the Turkish
provinces of Bosnia and Herzegovina
were turned over to Austria for admin
istration and military occupation, when
there was danger of the population,
which was in rebellion against Turkey,
being exterminated, and the Interfer
ence of Great Britain in Egypt, which
It has practically governed ever since,
to protect British commercial Interests
there. Mr. Beach says that President
Diaz, of Mexico, would be just the man
to le made receiver of Cuba, lwlng of
Spanish descent and thoroughly famil
iar with Spanish character, and having
shown an administrative ability that
is without precedent tn Spanish-American
countries. The undesirable nature
of the population of Cuba has always
been and Is now a bar to it" acquisition
by the United States.
