Havana, July 2. The inauguration
yesterday of Gen. Alejandro Hernandez

in the case of the parade as it showed

public sentiment.

or even of rich business men. still there
was no question that it represented the
majority of the people. Every organi
zation as it passed the balcony where
General Wood and his staff stood
uncoveied even during the pouring rain.
The last hour was made the occasion to
give an immense ovation to Gen. Wood,
personally, and before the paraders
passed each body gave loud "vivas" for
the United States.
