sage the president said:
"The army of tho United States Is
far too vital an institution to tbe peo
ple of this country to be made tho
victim of hasty or Imperfect theories
of legislation. As was pointed out by
tho chairman of the. senato military
committee, it is well known that tho
war college and the general staff havo
been for many months engaged upon
a comprehensive plan of army reor
ganization. At the present time,
therefore, It is especially 'inappropri
ate, in my opinion, to force upon tho
statute books legislation enacted with
out the usual deliberation and care.
I, cannot conscientiously surrender the
responsibility in shaping such laws
with which I am vested under the
constitution. I thcroforo return to
your honorable body without my ap
proval the said bill."

Santiago. Conditions throughout
the pastern end of Cuba indicate
that the Washington authorities
have no conception of tho real
situation aside from tho bankrupt
state of tho Havana government. Tho
rural districts are being depopulated
of peaceful citizens as rapidly as tho
limited transportation facilities per
mit. Devastation is the chief occupa
tion of both rebels and guerilla vol
unteers. The country has already
been set back flvo years and bitter
race hatred has been aroused. Tho
character of tho warfare overshadows
the property' losses and so shocking
are tho details In many instances that
they are unprintable.
Instead of civilized warfare it is
annihilation and a majority of those
being killod .are not insurrectos but
unarmed blades who took refuge in
the brush with their families when
the trouble started. Defenseless boys
aro being shot down on tho only prov
ocation that their skin is black. Sev

killed while fighting to save their hon
or have been brought to notice.
General Monteagudo has directed
that no prisoners be taken and when
an officer makes the mistake of bring
