WHEN CUBA WAS FOR SALe7
Offersd to France for $6,000,000 In
time of Louis Philippe.
It Is not generally known that
Cuba very nearly became a French
Colony In the reign or Louis Philippe,
for Spain, being without means or
raisins money, Queen Christina or
rered some or the principal Spanish
colonies for sale.
Secret negotiations weie carried on
at the Tullerles bef.veen Sen'or Cam

Senor Aguudo, the bunker; Prince de
Talleyrand, and King Ixmls Philippe,
and the first article of the treaty, by
which Spain was to sell Cuba to
France for 30,000,000 francs, or $6,
000,000, was quickly agreed to.
But the second aitlele, relating to
Porto Hlco nnd the Philippines, broke
off ths negotiations, for Spain asked
$2,000,000, whereas France would of
fer only $1,400,000. King Louis Phil

It Is significant that In those days
nelgther party paid the slightest nt

might think; but the Spaniards must
now regret that they did not accept
for It would bnve saved them many
millions In thoa ensuing CO years.
