A Cuban Question
There is a trial going on in Cuba before a solemn
tribunal to decide whether the editor oT a newspaper at
Havana is- or is not a gentleman. On the issue will
depend whether or not a duel will be fought. The
mail who raised this question regarding the character
of the editor is a Cuban official who, in a public
statement, had characterized the editor as a coward,
as was disclosed in a war, uprising or revolution in
which that conntry was involved in 1917, something
. of which the world has not heard or has forgotten.
' If this matter were left to a jury' composed of
Anieiiean soldiers who served with the Cubans in
K'uba during the Spanish -American war, it would
probably be decided that, whether or not the editor
is a gentleman, according to their way of thinking,
ihere is no reason why the duel should not proceed.
;The same parties fought a duel some years ago. before
;the event out of which the charge of cowardice grew.
If the editor was worthy then to fight, he is not now
unworthy by reason of his conduct in 1917.
t A jury of American soldiers, from their own ex
perience, would no doubt regard cowardice as4i na
tional characteristic, and that anv citizen ot Cuba
possessins that or any other national characteristic
Ms entitled to all natural privileges, even the foolish
tone of fighting a duel.
Whether or not one is a gentleman depends some
times on geography, sometimes on national customs.
We have no doubt there aie gentlemen in America
who would not pass for gentlemen in Cuba, France,
Great Britain, Germany or Timbuetoo. A close ob
server of the customs and conventions of the country
rin which he lives or travels is a gentleman in that
Our standards are different from those of the
Cubans. We have heard a returned American officer
i relate, that after the battle of Kl Caney, in which
;the Cubans kept safely out of range of the Spanish
guns, the American commander, whose forces were
engaged in building a road, sent to the Cuban general
asking for an additional detail of road builders. The
.belaced and bcrihboned Cuban drew himself up
proudly and replied: "Tell General Chaffee that the
Cubans are soldiers, not laborers."
A Warning to the Victors
Representative Fess, chairman of the republican
congressional committee, warns bis republican col
leagues that they mtist show the country that they
are worthy of the confidence the voters have reposed
in them. It was partly a vote confidence in the
republican party and partly a vote of a lack of con
fidence in the present administration. It was not
a blind expression of confidence, of a willingness to .
follow whither the majority party in the next congress
might lead, but it was rather an expression of a hope
that the party would go in the right direction. Unless
this hope is fulfilled, so much of the popular confidence
as was expressed in the November vote will likely
be withdrawn in 1920.
The warning is intended to stop an unseemly'
scramble among republican congressman over the
speakership and committee assignments. It was not
the intention of the voters to provfUe places for cerT
tain members of the party, and if the victors persist
-In making a personal use of the trust placed upon
them, they will not be the victors two years hence.
After a wandering of ten years in the wilderness
of defeat, it might be supposed that the republican
leaders now would have sense enough to know that
the Independent voter is not to be trifled with, and
that the independent voter is Increasing in numbers
every day.
The Banquet at Buckingham Palace
We are not raising any question of propriety. We
nn only wondering with what emotions the American
people will read the elaborate accounts of the pro
ceedings in Buckingham Palace in which President
and Mrs. Wilson were the central figures around
whom dukes and earls, lords and knights revolved as
a mere setting for the occasion; whether they will
learn with pride or some other feeling that the presi
dent is seated by the king next to a throne, which is
nowhere regarded as a symbol of democracy.
We do not suppose that level-headed Americans
will be moved cne way or another by the stories
of t'nis entertainment. But there are many people
who are not level-headed. WTe have among us bol-'
shevists and anarchists who will no doubt make the
most of this royal banquet to prove to their followers
that we approve of royalty and that we are not far
from its adoption. There are other good citizens who '
have an almost abnormal hatred of royalty, and who
must think that the president has crossed a gulf
which will forever separate the White House from
Jeffersonian simplicity our boast for more than a
: STie. Rubicon, a small stream flowing between Cis
klpinc Gaul and Italy proper, is not nearly as wide
is the Atlantic, yet some Americans well remember
that that stream separated Rome, the republic, from
home, the empire; that the crossing of it was the
end of the republic Such apprehension as may be
awakened as to the effect of the president's associa
tion with royalty is groundless, but it will be ex
istent. ' , ' t
! The effect of these things, we feel certain, will be
such that if we were in the place of Mr. Creel we
' would have insisted on a toning down of the report
of the banquet and we would have left something to
conjecture, instead of parading "every royal formality
which attended epochal occasions at the palace for two
or three hundred years."
No doubt Mr. Wilson would have preferred some
thing less royal and more simple, more in accord with
American tastes, and especially with American tradi
tions. Amid such a scene of splendor, the subject of
democracy could net be introduced, and certainly
could hot be easily sustained. The very atmosphere
was unfriendly.
As to the effect upon the president, there can be
none. The glamor will not blind him as to his duty
to the country in the peace conference, and his associa
tion with these highest forms of royalty will leave
him a none-the-Iess good democrat and American.
Wre are wondering, as we have said, only as to the
effect upon the average American who remains at
Other eminent Americans have been entertained
abroad, and we were proud of the honor bestowed
upon them. Some years ago Mr. Bryan, though a
private citizens, the leader of a great party, made a
tour of the world and was everywhere received with
honor by the foremost statesmen and men of the
countries visited by him. But, though he met kings,
a kaiser, an emperor and a czar, he met them as men"
and not as representatives of royalty amid royal sur
roundings. Mr. Roosevelt likewise was received in Germany
and Great Britain, in the former by the kaiser, but
not as a royal guest. He was accorded the highest
honors by republican France, and we all thought the
better of these countries for the way in which they
treated him. But Mr. Roosevelt was then a private
citizen and his visit was incidental to a hunting tour.
The hosts of Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. I'.ryan had met
them on their own level as American democrats.
Mr. Wilson could not graciously have avoided the
position in which he was placed except by remaining
at home. Once in Great Britain as the head of the
American government, he was compelled to do as
British royalty demanded he should Co.
A One-End Control
The control by Mr. Burleson of the cable lines
which touch Great Britain "stops .with the shore,"
according to a dispatch from London. The Brit'sh
government does not recognizeyhe authority of our
postmaster-general to exercise control over the oper
ation of the lines there. We. can easily see why that
is so. We should greatly resent the preposition of
the British postmaster-general to exercise control
which might amount to a censorship of matter here.
When Mr. Burleson took control, or attempted
to take control, of the cables, he apparently overlooked
ihe fact that a cable necessarily has two ends, and
that one end is beyond our territorial jurisdiction.
A Kansas City business woman, the day before
"Thanksgiving, received a box of chrysanthemums
which she proudly set upon her desk for the delectation
of her fellow workers. The "mums'' really came
from a rival business concern, but when the other
girls wanted to know who sent them, she only smiled
and. said, "The florist," in her most mysterious man
ner. "Come, come." they said. "Tell us who?"
"I shall not." she bantered. "I'm married, and it
wouldn't do to tell the truth about it."
"But," interjected the office anthology, "perhaps
he truth would make you free."

Not long after they had become engaged, the
young man said to his fiancee: "I think it only fair
to tell you that I am a somnambulist."
"Oh," replied the lady, "that won't matter in the
least; you see you can go to my church one Sunday
and I'll go to yours the next."

Robert had a new brother about three weeks old.
"Whom does your little brother look like?" asked
one of the neighbors.
"I don't know that he looks much like anybody,"

A modern novelist describes a lady with whose
like some of us are not wholly unfamiliar. "One mo

and the next you wonder if you've ever been presented.'
"I guess it must be the tax on whisky," replied
Cobby. And the teacher thought he was entitled to
a credit of 100 per cent.
