SPAIN IN CUBA.
A l.unjt llceoixl of Cruelty, Tyranny
and llobltery.
Spanish deviltry in Cuba began the
day wire sighted the island.
According to Mr. Keith Johnson, F.
li. G. S., Spain found there Home $400,
000 aborgines living in a state of happy
tranquillity among themselves, worship
ing a great and Beneficent being and
cherishing belief in the immortality of
the soul.
Before 15(10 (i. e., fifty-eight years
after the "discovery" I the original pop
ulation had vanished from the island.
In ISIS French privateers reduced Ha
vana to ashes, repeating the medicine in
1554. For 150 years thereafter Spanish
"honor" was kept trembling like jellv
for fear of attacks by the English, French
anil Dutch. All nations hated Spain
and not one had escaped the results of
her insolence, greed and cruelty.
In 1702 Great Britain, with the aid of
her American colonies, sent 200 ships to
Havana, capturing the city, the entire
island and a spoil of near IR,1)00.000. Un
luckily for civilization the treaty of
Paris in the year following restored
Cuba buck to detested Spain, it is evi
dent that only the mildest protests
should he heard from
England and
France at the impending castigation.
Neither of these countries acted on half
our provocation, yet both dragged her
thoroughly in the dust.

Patrons in (Iaivsoii.
There will be a warm time in Dawson
City when "Swiftwater Bill" Gates
ceives his first consignment of 10,000
bottles of California chamnugne.
The doors of his new "Palace of Amuse
ment for Gents and Ladies" will swim
with real old fizz, and the size of the
average head on the Klondike will aj>
prnximate Andree's balloon.
For months, "Swiftwater" has figured
it, the Yukoners have been yearning for
a gentleman's drink. "Forty rod" of
the most ferocious brand lias been the
nearest approach to it so far, and, as is
well known, "forty rod" is not a drink
for a ladylike gent in the new diggings.
After the river opens lip this year
"forty rod" will not lx* in it. "Swift
water's" first cargo of sparkle will have
reached Dawson then, and the festvities
will lx due.
F. B. Mulgrew, traffic manager of the
Alaska Transportation Company, made
the deal for the champagne with the
Klondike!'early last week and his breath
was taken by the lightning rapiitity of
Gates's arrangements.
Mulgrew called on him the dav before
he left for the 1101th to see about sliip
ping some goods, provided a market
might Jx found in Alaska for them.
Mulgrew had already agreed to send
a0 inc light wines to St. Michael to parties
holding a Government license there, and 1
h,,. sought ought "Swiftwater" to trv to
st .|| him a stock of wines for Ins Dawson |
resort, which is to furnish the river city ,

to life underwriters.
