No reprisals have been levied upon those who did not favor our cause during the insurrection "We now invite all classes to join us in forgetting that war ever divided the people of the island My grout est ambi tion is to see Cuba free and independent and its people united for honest govern ment, peace and prosperity This can be accomplished more easily than many think The Spaniards» in Cuba are dis playing a willingness to meet the Cu bans half way They are beginning to learn that we desire peace and protec tion for all "Since Jan 1 sentiment throughout Cuba has changed materially Another two months will see all classes frater nizing One year will do more to blot out the hatreds engendered by the in surrection than ten did to reconcile the people of the north and south after the civil war in the United States. "There has been so much misrepre sentation of facts that the American people are perhaps not blameworthy if they have misjudged the Cubans, but * Of one thing you may be sure—all Cu . bans acknowledge their deep debt of . gratitude to the Americans Go where yon will in this island and you will find the Cuban and American flags floating together But that does not • mean that the peo* ' wish the latter to replace the former "U good judgment and forbearance * be used. Cuba will ever acknowledge a commercial and sentimental alle giance to the United .States, but those win* have risked their lives and those Who have sacrificed loved ones at the call of patriotism cannot be expected to ^relinquish their fondest hopes, even at the invitation of that friend who held out—I had almost said tardily—a help ing hand in the hour <*f need.

They want enough money to give them o proper start, and I hope some means will be discovered of providing that those who return to the fields should have a yoke of oxen and seed. "Much can be accomplished with the $8.000,000 provided by President Me Kinley. but more will be needed. With Cuba's natural resources pledged as se curity there will be little difficulty in securing a loan sufficient to pay the army in full Those who are entitled to pay will have it Those who are not entitled will receive not one cent. There will be no padded rolls. But this is a matter which can be discussed with better jndgment after I have reached Havana and conferred with the Ameri can officials.
