I do net believe that there Is a Judge In Cuba that would he so unpatriotic aa to Issue an Injunction against this busiivui and create mora trouble.' -And then the Secretary of Justice Inter poaed his advice and he advised ua at great length that the check would be aafe, that If the check waa preaented at the national bank the evidence would be there, and Rellly aald, 'Well, a check la not caah, and you are offering me a check and asking me to sign for cash and I Insist Upon the caah.'
