that the Evening Statr, of this city, got
out an "extra"' at six o'clock to an
nounce in a four line dispatch that the
City of Cadiz had beetn seized by the

around which all interest centers niow.

tihe P'resident. The President has set
in motion a Cuban p)olicy which will
be hard to turn aside or r'everse.
Undoubtedly tihe aim of t,he admin is

Tile President hlas taken several steps
whichl wouild look ase if thley mt.ght leadi
