train in time to play first for St.

of the season. Mayor Tafel made a brlsf
address to the players, and tossed tho ball
from the stand.
The Clevelands lost because they were out
played. Hurkett's hitting was the only feat

was raised at any of the decisions of the
empires, though many bad ones were ren
dered.

A Long Look Ahead.
The politlc'ans are oven now beginning to
weigh the possibilities involved in the next
presidential election. The papers are full of
electioneering gossip, and venture predictions
as to the future which are somewhat too self
confident. But It is safe to say that a syste
matic course of Hostetter's Stomach Bitters
will renew health in the malarious, bilious,
rheumatic, costive or nervous.
BASE BALI BRIEFS.
That Manager Mack i 3 satisfied with the
work of the M lwaukee team s) far this sea
son is indicated by the following let'er Presi
dent Kiliiiea received frcm him: "I like the
looks of the team this spring and think we
should be In the race from the start to the
finish. Taylor has made a strong showing
bo far. Reidy is full of life and now weighs l
IGS pounds, and Rettger and Pappalau show
up well."
The Louisville ciub sympathizes with Cen- I
nic Mack in the absence of Bert Myers, and ■
has offered J7e Dolan to him. but it is ques- J
tiorable whether the tender will be accepted, \
as Dolan is a weak batter, his record last !
scas-n being .210. He was the poorest short- j
stop in the National league last season, and
is the possessor of a weak arm.— Milwaukee
Sentinel.
The Washington Post says that garrulous
magnate, Charley Ebbitts, whom Comiskey j
once dubbed the champion two-banded talker |
cf the association, ls charged with icsinuatlng

KEEFE TELLS HIS STORY
WAS ON THE STAND YESTERDAY
IN HIS OWN BEHALF
His Testimony Practically the Same
as That Given In the Previous \
Trial Denies That He Cotiiched
WitncKKCH or Endeavored to Get
uny One to Commit Perjnry His
Letter to Burns.
The defense in the Keefe subirnation ease
the introduction of testimony yester
day. Attorney Butler outlined ths case of
the defense, placing much stress upon the
claim that Bell's testimony was lacking in
corroboration.
The defendant. William Keefe, was .-ailed
to the stand, and occupied most of the morn
; ing session in giving his testimony, which
: was practically the same story he told at the
He positively denied that he had coached
• witnesses or had endeavored to get any one
i to commit perjury.
; Mr Butler showed Keefe the letter intro
i eluced by the state, which was written to
Burns in Winnipeg, which was as follows
eif rie S d „ W ' H ' : you will iind
fW. Bell went against you and got them
to indict you. Enclosed you will find the
clippings frcm the newspapers. There is
only a few that know it was you on ac
count cf the name. They cannot take you
out of there or any place in the British
provinces, but if you got on this side they
will take you quick. —William Ke^fe
The witness acknowledged that he wrote
the letter.
"How did you happen to send the $10?"
"Why, just as any railroad man would
havo done."
"What aid you mean by saying that 'only
a few would know by the name?' "
"Burns was afraid of losing his position."
"Ycu refer to his having been called Harry
on the stand, while he was generally known
as Mickey."
"Yes,; all railroad men do that in such
cases."
"Are all railroad men accustomed to
change their names?"
This question was ruled out.
Continuing, Keefe said: "His name was
Michael Harry."
Asked if he had Intended in the letter to
advise the recipient not to come to St. Paul
on the perjury case, Keefe said:
"He was to come here as a witness. If
they could tako him he wculd come, but If
ho could not be taken against his will he
was to remain in Winnipeg, working where
he was employed, and coming when the trial
took place. I did not know at any time that
Bell committed perjury. I never asked Mrs.
Bell to make an affidavit that he was in
Eau Claire. I saw Bell in jail, and he said
he wanted to plead guilty, but that the at
torney would not let him, and he wanted
another attorney."
On cross-examination, T. D. O'Brien asked
Keefe if he had not procured Burns as a wit
ness in a railroad case In Wisconsin.
Witness replied in the affirmative.
Asked by what name Burns testified in this
case. Keefe said he did not know.
"Who is Merrill?" asked Mr. O'Brien.
"A railroad man."
"Did he ever testify for you?"
"Once."
Keefo said his business was preparing
cases against railroads. He said he entered
into contracts and hired attorneys.
E. A. Jaggard was the only other witness
of the day. When his testimony was con
cluded court adjourned until Monday morning
at 10 o'clock.

CLOUGH STILL ON THE STAND
CKOSS-EXAMINED BY ATTOR
NEY GENERA! COWAN
Another Hay In the Nolrth Dnkoln
Rate Cane Great Northern Vice
President Telia of the Construc
tion of the Road and of Its Bond
ed Indebtedness— Northern Pa
clflc Officials to Be Heard Toduy,
The North Dakota rate case hearing
yesterday was occupied by Attorney
General Cowan's cross-examination of
Col. W. P. Clougrh, vice president of
the Great Northern railway.
The cross-examination brought out
facts about the main line and branches,
their cost of construction, the opera
tion expenses and maintenance, as
well as the stocks and bonds of the
main line and branches.
During the cross-examination the fol
lowing- questions were asked and an
swered:
Q. Mr. Cloug-h, you stated that the
lease of the St. Paul, Minneapolis &
Manitoba Railway company to the
Great Northern Railway company ex
tended ever a period of 999 years?
A. From the date of its execution.
Feb. 1. IS9O.
Q. And the rentals to be paid that
company during that period were
what?
A. They were to be first interest on
all bonds of the St. Paul, Minneapolis
& Manitoba Railway company, as tho
Interest should accrue. The dividend
on outstanding stock of the St. Paul,
Minneapolis & Manitoba road is at a
rate of 6 per cent per annum, payable
quarterly. Such sums as might be
necessary for the expenses for preserv
ing and maintaining the general or
ganization of the road.
Q. Was that the measure of rentals,
or how were the rentals to be determin
ed when the bonds matured?
A. If any bonds should be matured
and retired and not replaced with other
bonds then the rentals should cease so
far as the interest on those particular
bends were concerned. Part of the ar
rangement of this lease was that the
payment of the principal of the Interest
of the St. Paul, Minneapolis & Mani
toba's bonds was assumed by the Great
Northern Railway company.
Q. Do you know the exact amounts
of the purely local business done in the
state of Minnesota during the four fis
cal yea.rs ending June 30, 1894, to 189T
inclusive?
A. I have net the figures with me.
Q. Refering to the question of the
bonds of the St. Paul, Minneapolis &
Manitoba road, what are the rates of
interest upon the several issues; state
the amount of issues and rate of inter
est?
A. First mortgage, $61,400, at 7 per
cent, which has since been retired; sec
ond mortgage, $8,000,000 at 6 per cent;
third mortgage, $5,676,000, Dakota ex
tension, 6 per cent; the $8,000,000 second
mortgage was issued about 1879 or 1880,
and had thirty years to run; $5,000,000
mortgage had thirty years to run. A
consolidated mortgage was made May
1, 1883, to run fifty ye-ars, of $13,344,000,
ot 6 per cent; same mortgage changed
to $21,262,000, at 4% per cent. The Mon
tana extension mortgage was made in
1887 with thirty years to run, $7,907,000,
at 4 per cent. The Pacific extension
was made in 1890, with thirty years to
run; £6,000,000 sterling, or $30,000 000
total, of which $29,545,454 is out at 4
per cent. Those are all of the bonds
of the St. Paul, Minneapolis & Mani
toba road issued against 3,780 miles of
main track.
Q. Has any issue of Great Northern
bonds been made since June 30, 1897?
A. No, sir.
Q. What is the total amount of the
St. Paul. Minneapolis & Manitoba stock
outstanding?
A. Twenty million dollars.
Q. Dees the Great Northern Railway
company guarantee dividends upon
that to the Manitoba company by way
of rental?
A. It pays a rental to the St. Paul,
Minneapolis & Manitoba company equal
to 6 per cent per year on that stock.
Q. That is to say. that 6 per cent on
that stock is a portion of the rental?
A. Yes, sir.
Q. What is the total amount of the
Great Northern stock outstanding?
A. Twenty-five million dollars.
Q. And what dividends have been
paid on that since its issue annually?
A. Most of the time 5 per cent, but
more recently, 6 per cent.
Q. What are the items constituting
the additional cost of handling local
traffic as compared with interstate
traffic? /
A. The biggest item is the inability
to handle a full lead from division to
division. The ccst of running a train
is practically fixed in all cases regard
less of the amount of the load. An
other item is the loss of transportation
power, which means that a train that
has to run over any given distance of
track and has a capacity of 1.000 tons,"
might only get ICO tons and the cost
of transportation power would be the
same.
The hearing was adjourned until
Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock, when ;•.
couple of days will be taken up with
going over some statistics to be handed
in by General Manager Kendrick, of
the Northern Pacific, a>nd General Traf
fic Manager Hannaford, of the same
line.
On Thursday Master in Chancery
Lovelle, the North Dakota commission,
and Attorney General Cowan will go
to Chicago to hear the evidence of the
Milwaukee road on the same general
subject of rates in North Dakota.
RAILROAD MEN INTERESTED.
Everybody Has a Guess as to W. H.
Newman's Sneeessor.
The appointment of W. H. Newman, sec
ond vice president of the Great Northern
railway, to the position of president of the
Lako Shore & Michigan Southern road, Is
the one topic of conversation among the
I railroad men.
Who will succeed Mr. Newman is a ques
tion Interesting the different officials. F.
j B. Clarke, the preseHt general traffic man
ager, is prominently spoken of as the next
second vice president of the Great Northern.
Mr. Clarke is next in line of promotion, but,
a3 President Hill has never made appoint
ments upon the civil service basis, this will
not affect Mr. Clarke's chances one way or the
other.
L. F. Day, general manager of the Min
neapolis & St. Louis road at Minneapolis, is
thought by many to be the choice of Mr.
Hill. Mr. Day succeeded A. L. Mohler on
the Minneapolis & St. Louis when the lat
ter official went to the Oregon Railway &
Navigation company. He was formerly
chairman of the Southwestern Traffic as
sociation, and is a traffic man of wide ex
perience.
A prominent local traffic official ls of the
opinion that the office of second vice presi
dent will be abolished on the Great North
ern, and that the duties attending that posi
tion will be distributed among other trafflo
officla».
It is al»o rumored that, with the abolition
of the second vice pr>asldency, tha office of
general manager will be again adopted, and
an official selected for that place, probably
Mr. Clarke.
Mr. Newman was in Chicago yesterday,
and will probably return to St. Paul within
a day or two. It is thought by many that
he will suggest the name of his successor
to Mr. Hill, and tho latter will appoint the
man selected by Mr. Newman.
GREAT WESTERN AFFAIRS.
General Superintendent Raymond
Da Pay Assumes Office.
The name of tho third division superintend
ent of the Chicago Great Western railway has
not yet been decided upon by General Superin
tendent Raymond Dv Puy.
Mr. Dv Puy's services as general superin
tendent commenced yesterday. In conversa
tion with a Globe reporter, he said :
"I am now carefully considering the names
of a number of employes who have been sug
gested to me as good men to take charge of
the division between Oelweln and Chicago. As
was stated ln The Globe, J. Berllngett, now
superintendent of transportation at Oelweln,
will bo division superintendent at Dos
Molnea, while J. A. Kelly, the present as
sistant general superintendent, will have
charge of the line from Oelweln to Minneap
olis.
"I hope to have the road under divisional
operation by May 1. There' is a good deal of
improvement work going on along the line
of the Great Western which will be steadily
pushed. Twenty-five miles of seventy-five
pound steel rails are being laid on the East
ern division, in the western part of Illinois.
Five of the biggest trestles are being sup
planted by stone arch culverts and filled."

COEI'R IVALEXE LAKE.
Ncprthern Paelflc Resumes Its Lake
Service Today.
The Northern Pacific resumes its Coeur
D'Alcne lake service between Coeur D'Alene
City and Harrison today. All through pas
sengers on tho Northern Paclflc have the op
tion of making the trip, east or west bound,
via Coeur D'Alene lake, which is perhaps
the most picturesque portion of the entire
Northwest.
In connection with the opening of the
Coeur D'Alene lake route the following
change in time has been made between
Spokane and Coeur D'Alene City: Train No.
8 leaves Spokane at 8 a. m., arriving at
Coeur D'Alene at 9:30, where connection is

agreed on a rate of one fare plus
$2 for the round trip for all the big gatherings
of the year, such as the Grand Army encamp
ment, the National Educational association
convention, the Young People's Society of
Christian Endeavor, the Knights of Pythias
encampment, etc. ,•,
All the Interested roads were not present
at tte meeting when they took this action and
the proposition has been submitted to them
for ratification. No doubt is entertained that
It will go through.
HELD A LIVELY MEETING.
Western Trunk Line Committee IMs
cusses Freight Rates.
CHICAGO, April lv.i—An' exciting meeting
was held here today at which the existing
demoralization in rates on packing house pro
ducts was discussed, with the view or hav
ing rates restored April 20.
It ti'inspircd during the discussion that a
number of lines had made long time con
tracts at the cut rates, and therefore any
advance at this time was impossible.
It also appeared that the live stock men ot
Omahn are threatening to prosecute the rosds
for making higher rates on live stock than
on meat products, contrary to the orders
of the Interstate commerce commission.

THINK THIS OVER.
A Rational Remedy for a National Trouble.
To say that hemorrhoids or the dis
ease commonly known as piles is a na
tional disease may be slightly over
drawn, but it is quite certain that at
least one in every four persons is so
afflicted.
Because it is common and not imme
diately fatal many suffer for • years
without giving the trouble medical
attention.
Moreover, the rather general impres
sion that a surgical operation is the
only cure has much to do with delay
ing attention until the disease becomes
deep-seated and chronic.
Sufferers from piles should know that
the Pyramid Pile Cure is better than
a surgical operation; it cures without
pain, it causes no detention from busi
ness, and the cost is trifling, all drug
gists selling it at 50 cents per package.
The astringent effect C'f the acids in
the Pyramid Pile Cure speedily con
tracts and restores to their natural con-,
dition the blood vessels of the affected
parts, and as it quickly dissolves in
the rectum the remedy soothes and
heals the irritated surfaces, and these
two things are the only necessary re
quirements for a cure.
The principal danger from piles is
the liability to chronic ulceration of the

MR, BAILEY BEARDS REED
SPEAKER ARRAIGNED BY THE
GENTLEMAN FROM TEXAS
A Tilt Between the Czar and the
Leader of the Mlnobrlty as an Out
come of the Disgraceful Scene
of Wednesday, the Only Incident
of Interest ln the House Ses
sion.
WASHINGTON, April 15.— Only a
single incident of the session of the
house today was worthy of public no
tice. Mr. Bailey, the Democratic lead
er, arose to a question of privilege to
reply to a Philadelphia newspaper
criticism charging him with responsi
bility for the disorderly scene in the
house of Wednesday. Mr. Bailey said
that a public man was seldom justified
in replying to criticism, but in this case
he could not, In justice to himself, al
low such a statement to pass without
reply. He affirmed that if there was
any individual responsible for the scene
it must rest upon the speaker himself.
As he proceeded with his arraign
ment of the speaker there were mani
festations of suppressed excitement on
the floor. The speaker listened with
imperturbable countenance.
Mr. Bailey said: "Constrained by
what I considered the unfair and un
just treatment of the chair, I objected
and upon that objection arose the scene
of disorder that is regretted by every
member of this house. But, for the re
sults which follow it, the responsibility
is not upon me nor upon this side. The
responsibility is upon the speaker of
this house who sought a mean partisan
advantage by forcing his political op
ponents into a false position, (applause
on Democratic side), and the country
ought to know. I understand the speak
er of the house — "
"Is this an arraignment of the speak
er or a question of personal privilege?"
interposed Mr. Steele (Rep., Ind.).
Speaker Arraigned.
"The chair does not know, but will
probably soon learn," observed the
speaker, blandly.
"It is the daily airing the gentleman
gives himself," said Mr. Dalzell (Rep.,
Pa.).
"I did not understand the oracular
statement of the gentleman," observed
Mr. Bailey.
"Well, then, I will repeat it." said
Mr. Dalzell. "It is only the daily air
ing the gentleman gives himself."
"And that is only the daily falsehood
that men on that side are guilty of,"
retorted Mr. Bailey.
"I did not expect a man belonging
to either party to cease to be a parti
san when he became a speaker of this
house," continued Mr. Bailey, "and
the speaker, whenever a fair occasion
offers, will exercise his office for the
advantage of his party. I expect the
present speaker to do it as certainly
as every man who ever occupied the
chair; but until a short while ago I
believed that the present speaker of
this house was a partisan, as an hon
est man should be, and as honest as a
partisan could be; but, after the per
formance of last Wednesd.ay, I would
not be willing to father that senti
ment any longer.
"I have never known, on a great
occasion, any more unfair advantage
attempted, and, even if it had suc
ceeded, what little advantage there
was would have passed from my mem
ory long before the recollection of the
speaker's partisan action." (Loud ap
plause on Democratic side.)
Reed Replies.
When Mr. Bailey took his seat, the
speaker leaned forward slightly and
replied, speaking slowly and distinctly:
"The chair desires to say that, what
ever he has done, the other day or any
day since the commencement of this
session, has been done in the presence
of the house and of a thousand wit
nesses. He does not feel that It is nec
essary for him to discuss his conduct.
(Loud applause on the Republican
side.) The gentleman from Texas,
after two days of deliberation, has felt
that his situation demanded discus
sion and explanation. (Laughter on
Republican side.) With that idea, the
chair entirely agrees. (Laughter.) It
is not the first time that the gentle
man from Texas has assailed me. To
it, I have no reply, except simply what
the house knows, that the gentleman
from New York (Mr. Qulgg) did not
mean an objection, either really or
technically, and everybody ln this
house knows it.
"I, therefore, with reference to this
whole matter, appeal to the witnesses
of the transaction and upon their judg
ment the chair rests his justification."
(Applause on Republican side.)
Mr. Bailey attempted to reply, but
the regular order was demanded, and
the incident closed.
The house wrangled all afterroon on
a bill to refer a claim of the Erie rail
road for mail service amounting to
about $300,000 to the court of claims.
It was not passed.
At 4:45 p. m. the house recessed until
8 o'clock, the evening session to bo de
voted to private pension legislation.

NOTE TO THE POWERS.
Spain Will Strcma;!y Plead the Re
forms Granted in Cuba.
MADRID, April 15.— The note to the powers
will review the whole Cuban question, point
ing out that all the trouble with the United
States arises through the clamor of the sugar
manufacturers, who, it is claimed, fomented
and organized the entire revolt. Attention will
be recalled to the alleged unmolested Ameri
can filibusters, and it will be asserted that
the chief insurgents are not Cubans, but
adventurers of all nationalities whoso solo
purpose is plunder and robbery.
The concessions mode by Spain will be
enumerated, and the note will say that whi!3
Spain has done everything possible to pacify
tho island, the consuls of the United States
have constituted themselves insurgent ageat3,
and tho further statement will be made that
when autonomy promised the desired result.
an American squadron was sent to Cuba to
encourage the insurgents to hold out.
The note to the powers will conclude with
declaring that Spain, having exhausted every
means of peace, is reluctantly compelled to
prepare for war, and to light for the main
tenance of Its rights and honor.
Took Guns and Papers,
NEW YORK, April 14.— Information that fa
regarded as somewhat significant reached this
city today to the effect that when the Spanish
warship Vlzcayta. left Havana she took with
her from that port a number of rapid-firing
guns that had been mounted on shore pre
paratory to repelling a possible Invasion.
The vessel also took away a large quantity
of the private papers of the captain gfSonU
and of the government archives.

Trade Volume Checked by War
Talk, bnt Clearing House Pay
ments Arc Larger Than Those if
a Year Ago— Present Crisis Least
Felt in the Central and Northwest
Sections ot the Conntry.
NEW YORK, April 15.— Dun & Co.'s
review will -jay: 1 lie meaning' of con
gress regarding Spain is not in doubt,
but the form of declaration at this
hour is in question. Tlie Dresld-e-nt'3
message has been accepted as a strong
i • tem^nit, of the situation and the
oues-tion in "congress is whether it will
without change adopt his proposal. Pre
uaraitions for war continue as if it were
inevitable.
There is some hindrance in business,
and yet the volume of payments
through clearing houses is still 12.9 per
cer.'t larger than last year, and outside
New York about 2.2 per cent larger
than in 1892, though speculative stagna
tion here makes the aggregate lower.
New York banks may now realize '
thait they are strong enough for all pos
sible emergencies and may give the
government valuable aid by greater \
freedom in business loans. Sound New
York banks are not ln the least alarm
ed about the business situation, nor
have they any occasion for alarm.
The industries are doing well, because
they have enormous orders taken in '
February and March, or earlier, which
insure operations for periods varying
from a fortnight to several months.
Cut the new orders, upon which they
have to rely, if partial stoppage or ,
closing of many works is to be pre
vented, are just now restricted by ap- I
prehension about the money market
and the possibility of loans.
TRADE MORE QI'IET.
War Scare Having Its Effect Accord
ing to Brndxtreet's.
NEW YORK, April 15.— Bradsptreefs
to-morrow will say: The effect of the
prevailing uncertainty in foreign affairs
is reflected in a further perceptible
quieting down of general trade so far
as future engagements are concerned,
in nearly all parts of the country.
While there is a little more activity
to be noted in the demand for season
able staples at the West and North
west, where better weather has helped
rtiail and wholesale trade alike, rather
more quiet is reported at the East and \
at the South Atlantic and Gulf ports, j
where the interuption to business has
become particularly serious.
The disposition to buy only actual
necessities has developed a hand-to
mouth demand in the latter sections of
the country, but the chief effect is
found in the indisposition to embark in
new enterprises or to contract new ob
ligations r>ending the definite settle- j
rnent of the foreign controversy.
The least notable effects yet exhibit- :
'• ed are found in the central West,
where distributive demand and move
ment is reported of a seasonable char
acter, the only changes noted, in fact,
being the strengthening of money rates
and the discouragement of new enter
prises such as railroad building.
The business failures in the United ]
States for the week number 215, against i
220 last week, 195 in the corresponding ,
week of 1897, 244 in 1896, and 219 in I
IMS 5.
Exports of cereals are larger. The
shipments of wheat (flour included) this |
week from the United States and Cana
da aggregate 4,044,000 bushels, against
3,778,000 bushels last week; 1.344,000 j
bushels, in this week a year ago; 2,
--017,000 bushels ln 1896; 3,165,000 bushels
to 1895, and 3,019,000 bushels in 1894.
Cora exports are over 1,000,000 bushels
larger than last week, aggregating 4,
--627.806 bushels, against 3,557,000 bush- ;
els last week; 2,328,000 bushels in this
week a year ago; 1,074,000 bushels in
1896.
CARLIST PROCLAMATION.
Text elf It Sai>r»ressed by the Censor
at Madrid.
MADRID (via Bayonne, France) April
15. — The action taken by the Spanish
cabinet has confirmed the general be
lief which has been prevalent here that
war is now inevitable. The warlike tona
of the official note issued by the Span
ish government finds general approval
and creates much excitement.
Contrary to the general opinion that
the queen regent has been negotiating
f°F peace at any price, her attitude had
mock to do with the firm action of
the It is learned on unques
tionable authority that the queen re
gent recently made the" following state
ment:
"I prefer even the horrors of war,
rather than a tarnish on the prestige
of the army or an impairment of the
rights of the crown."
Another important fact, undoubtedly,
is Don Carlos' manifesto of which the
following is an extract, which was not
risked submitting to the censor:
The governors of Madrid may make a
call to arms inevitable and immediate If

yean of patriotic retirement have proved
that I am neither ambitious nor a con
n?^il? r - The greater and b <*ter part of
my life, as a man. has been spent in th«
difficult task of restraining my na"ura" im
pulses and those of my enthusiastic Carl
ists, whose eagerness I was the first to
appreciate but which, nevertheless, f
curbed, a though it rent my heart to do to.
National honor speaks louder than any
thing, and the same patriotic duty which
formerly bade me say. 'Wait yet a while
may leave me to cry, commanding the
Carlists, Forward,' and not only the Carl
lsts. but all Spaniards, especially to the two
national forces which still bravely with
stand the enervating femininities of the re
gency—the people and the army.
If the glove from Washington, flung in
the face of Spain, ls picked up by MaJrid
I will continue the same example of ab
negation as before, wretched in that I can
not partake In the struggle other than by
prayers and by the influence of my name.
I will applaud from my soul those who
have the good fortune to face the fire and
I shall consider those Carlists as serving
my cause who embark in war against tho
United States.
But If everything leads me to fear that
the policy of humiliation will tiga-in i>re

ment from those who are unworthy -o
hold them, and we will occupy their places.

WASHINGTON, April If-.— The regular cab

discusil:n of the Cuban je! intion. but with
out anything of importance resulting there

The present position of the administration

not at all liksly to ve-o any resolution that
congress may adopt on the Cuban question.
The administration does not believe congress
will pass a resolution far the recognition of

it should, a ve'.o of it would bj very improb
