Want to Know What the United States Intend to Da (Cor. of The Associated Press.) Havana, June 19. Now that the elec tion Is over the people are beginning to ask what they have gained by it and what is going to happen next. The business men of the island, also the agriculturists, are asking and begging General W'aud for some specific declar ations as to what America intends to do, as there is no Question but that the country is beginning to feel the effects of eighteen months delay in an announcement of some kind. Capital has not come into the island. Some large areas of land have been sold, the money for which has gone to Spain, but on the other hand practically nothing is being done. Many sugar estates have not been put into operation, as the people owninir them do not feel abso lutely sure that they will not be again sacrificed to the ravages of guerilla warfare. The trouble is that men loud in their calls for independence are the first to f-ar that they will get it. One Cuban hiih official, drawing $6,000 a year as salary, does not even keep his savings in the island, and he makes no secret of his readiness to get out, no matter what happens, when the necessary time comes. General Wood and all the secretaries receive innumerable letters from capi talists asking when something definite will be decided upon, as they do not wish to invest until they know certainly what sort of government Cuba is going to have, most of them being afraid that the island will be turned over without the I'nited States retaining a form of protectorate. The Cubans claim that their actions during the election have proved them competent for self government. Cer tainly there were no fights or disturb ances. Apparently very little real in terest was felt in Havana on the sub ject. There was no boisterous crowd outside the citv hail waiting to hear the result, and the people were content to get the news from the morning pa pers next day. SO DID ROOSEVELT. D. B.

The Times' Lon don financial correspondent cables: A small change has come over the bent of our money market, but whether it signifies more than the approach of the half yearly bank balance sheet framing I cannot yet say. Money, how ever, is now lower here than on any other European market, cheaper even than on the New York market when lengthened periods are concerned. Six months bank bills can be discounted at from S to per cent, which is a rate. I think, unattainable on any other market in the world. Bills cf shorter currency have become a little more difficult to manage since last Monday, but three months paper can still be melted at 2 per cent, which is slightly below the finest quotation in Paris. Since the bank rate came down con tinental exchanges have moved so de cidedly against London as to create a small demand for gold on the Bank of England, besides sweeping away every ounce of metal comins into the open market. As yet only French and Ger man coins have been withdrawn from the bank's vaults for shipment to Par is and Berlin, and I do not apprehend that German orders will go much fur ther. Discount is falling and exchange rising in" Berlin, and the Bank of En gland has put up Its price for Germaan coin almost as high as it dared without exposing its bar gold to be drawn upon. I should be more confident under these circumstances that Germany would not hurt our market by taking large quantities of gold were your ex change as high row as when the week just passed began. New York's weakness aggravates the position and throws upon the London market what ever bullion demands Europe may gen erate. Paris is at the moment the most threatening spot. Not only is French exchange low, but the power of the French bankers over our market is unusually strong through the spend ings of visitors from all parts of the world now flocking into France to see the ex hibition. When gold goes from the Bank of England to Paris on a de pressed exchange it does so not in tens but in hundreds of thousands. If we can escape this danger, and get over the end of the half year without large gold exports to South Africa or any other quarter, it is possible that our discount market may slip back again, but it cannot be far or for long. We have seen. In my opinions the lowest discount rates, at least for this year, and It would cot surprise me were the bank rate to be raised again before July is out. Nothing new is reportable about stocks and shares. Arbitrage business Piano Bargains. 1 1 Hanard Upright Piano, $150 1 Columbia Upright Piano, $160 Above Pianos in modern style ?

HOI 903 North Kansas yV is nearly at a standstill, as well as local business, and it is no wonder that pric es shrink. One potent influence in sending down quotations for investment securities is the prices at which our municipalities are now tumbling over each other to sell their loans. They all want money, and are obliged to offer stocks at prices yielding S'i per cent or a little more. The standard issue figure appears to be absut 96 for 3 pc-r cent stock, and such a figure is reacting disastrously on our railway debentures and guaranteed stocks, bought quite recently to yield less than 3 per cent and often less than 2 pel cent. As for our railway common stocks, which investors till lately absorbed on a 2!i per cent basis, they must neces sarily give place now, and I look for dwindling prices in them all the sum mer and autumn from this cause alone. MONUMENT TO NANCY HANKS To Take the Form of a Domestic Sci ence School. Indianapolis, Ind., June 25.

A number of prominent delegates to Tuesday's Demo cratic state convention were interviewed last night on the vice presidency, and a very strong sentiment in favor of Iavid B. Hill, of New York, was found. Rep resentative J. C. Parker, of Ouachita county, has started a movement which may result in the convention instructing the Arkansas delegation for the New Yorker.
