CUBANS ARE ANXIOUS.
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.

CHEAP MONEY.
It la Lower in London Than in Any
Other Market.
New York, June 25. 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.

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

ARKANSAS FOK HILL.
Delegates to Democratic Convention

Little Rock. Ark., June 25. A number of
