DISPOSITION OF THE ISLAND
Resolution Relative to Cuba and
Mr. Newlands’ Attitude
A Washington dispatch says:
Representative Newlands of Nevada,
of the Ways and Means Committee, who
was the author of the resolution annexing
Hawaii, to-day introduced a joint reso
lution inviting the republic of Cuba to
become a part of tbe United States, first
as a territory and then a* a State of the
Union, to be called the State of Cuba;
and also authorizing 25 per cent reduc
tion of duty on the present crop °f Cuban
sugar, in consideration of Cuba’s grant
ing preferential rates to the United States.
The resolution confines the 25 per cent
reduction of duties to the period prior to
January 1, 1903. The provision as to
annexation is a* follows:
“That in the meantime the republic
of Cuba is invited to become a part of tbe
United States of America and her people
to become citizens ol the United States,
with the assurance that Cuba will he en
titled first to a territorial form ol govern
ment under the constitution and laws of
the United States; with a delegate in
Congress to represent her people, and
that ultimate statehood will be granted,
when, in the judgment of Congress, it is
advisable to admit Cuba, including such
other West Indian Islands belonging to
the United States as may be deemed ad
visable, as a single State in the Union,
to he called the State of Cuba.”
Mr. Newlands, in explanation of his
resolution, said: "All those who have
appeared to voice Cuba's needs and re
quirements have indicated that an invi
tation to Cuba of annexation would be
accepted. Annexation by force would
not be justified, ft must he accomplished,
if at all, by the free act of the Cuban peo
ple. At present there is no machinery in
Cuba by which the popular will can be
tested, but the Cuban constitution hss
been adopted. The Cuban Congress will
meet in February, a Cuban government
will fie organized, and the f nited Slates
will then leave the government ami con
trol of the islands to its people. Cuba
then will be in a position to exprt-ss her
will, and it is only necessary to tide over
the present emergency by a temporary
measure, such ss 1 have introduced, re
ducing the duty on Cuban sugar one
fourth for one year and inviting Cuba to
become a part of the United States under
a territorial form of government, under
the constitution, her people to becitiz ns,
not subjects, with the assurance that ul
timate statehood will tie granted.
"Hr coining into our political union
Cuba will secure immediately tbe highest
degree of freedom and with it a large mar
ket for varied products Those products
will not threaten our sugar industry so
seriously as they would under reciprocal
trade arrangements, for the reason that
the restricted labor laws of this country
will apply and will raise the cost of pro
duction to such an extent as to prevent
over-stimulation of her industries, while
her supplies will be bought in the high
protected markets of this country instead
of the cheap markets of the world. I
much prefer political union, for that in
volves the best kind of commercial union
that can be established between the two
“Such an annexation is entirely in line
with the traditional policy of the country.
When the time for statehood comes,
Cuba, Porto Kico and other West In
dian islands in our possession cm be in
corporated into the Union as one State,
thus doing away with the danger of over
representation in the Senate.”

Major Dennis, editor of the Keno Jour

the effect of courtesy by telling us that
Emma is about 40 years old.
All of the food supplies, except beef for
the construction camps on the line of the
Central Pacific railroad, are purchased in
Sari Francisco and Los Angeles and de
livered free of freight charges by the
Southern Pacific Company. This stmts
out Nevada merchants from competition,
us they caiiuot compete with California
prices of food products. The action of
the Southern Pacific Company in thus
depriving merchants of this State from
deriving any profits from the presence of
from 5,000 to 6,000 laborers, through the
free transportation of supplies from Cal
ifornia, is a rank act of injustice.

The great smallpox scare at Reno has
somewhat abated, but its evil effects re
main. There were less than a dozen
cases, all of a mild form like vorioloid, or
as the newspapers called it. “Manila
itch.” Those quarantined at the jiest
house are having a good time at the pnb
lic expense, and go out prospecting, or
rabbit bunting, as they see tit. But the
Board of Health pronounce it rank small

can’t be denied that the gentleman from
White Pine is looked upon with much
popular favor for the U. S. Senatorship,
if he will have it. Republicans say he
must run, must come into the fight and
win out sure. But somebody else may
come in before long to be the standard
bearer of Republican victory.
The citizens of Reno pause in scratch
ing their Manila itch long enough to stir
up their grand project of a big street fair
next Fourth of July. They have the va
ious committees already appointed, and
are going to have a Midway Plaisanee and
other arrangements that will discount
Carson’s brilliant success on the last
Fourth. They started in early and will
run it for all it is worth, itch or no itch.
