Illegal and worthlesa the Western I'nlon monopollstlc grant in Cuba msj be, nevertheleea this Oovernment la bound lo use milltary power lo prevent our laylng . competlng cable, This is a modeet proposltlon, to say th* l.-ast. The mlarepreai ntatlons upon whlch this Western I'nlon urant was obtalned am redted ln the preamhle Of tbe grant Itself, an.l It ls ele mentary law that fraud rltlstea all contracta. Th.. Attorney-Oeneral decllnea t.> conslder this fr.ind. cleor though it ls. snd nys that it would nol be "due procesa <>f law" for hlm to conslder lt. Hence he advlses the Becretary of War to protect by for.e oi arms the U'.stern i'nion monopoly In Cuba. We fail to undetHtan.l how th>> itovernment is under obllgatlona to protect by force thla w.-st .?rn lnion monopoly. Moreoyer, it Ih to be notlced thal the Western i'nion Telegraph Company haa nevcr denled this fraud. The Attorney-Oeneral ?a\ s that he cannot try the questlon of fraud. We iion'f ask hlm to. W>- ;isk hlm to Wlthhold hls milltary power In order that We ma> pr...1, and thus brlng on 11 trlal of that questlon wlth the W.-sterri I'nlon. If we are allowed to proceed tbe Western I'nlon can then try to stop us bv ".lu. proceaa ..f law." it ls ool "due procesa of law" t.. atop us iy milltary power. Th.- Amerlcan Oovernment has abnlishe.i the prlvllepea ln Cuba of the llank of Spaln and the monopoly of M CentS a head for eartane of alaugh t*red cattle, Those monopollea were abollsncd wlthout Judldal proceedlngs, and yet the Attorney CtiTil -;i\? that to abollsh the Western I'nlon monopol; wlthout ludlctal proceedlngs woul.l not be "dut proci sh of law." By th'- way, I notlce that th* Attorncy-fl. nern! tii.u savi that the aoverelgnty of cuba is now ln Ihe [Tntted States. and agaln that Bpaln was "our predecessor ln the pover.icnty or Cuba."
