When the fad dies out the souvenir

will also have hud her share of sou

England has revived an old law

When the sinner stands socially above
the laborer but beneath a gentleman,
the price is two shillings. Above the
gentleman the assessed figure is five
shillings. It is noted as a grievous
fault that the law makes no provision
for unholy lapsi lingua* on the part

OUR DENVER LETTER.
K G«nlp; Letter Concerning Thlaft Po
litical at the Capita!.
Daxvzn, January ‘3O. IsUS.
The stale printers hew bad an inning this
week. The avalanche of bills that has flowed
lit on the Assembly has t>een turned over to
be printed with uniform regularity. The
•ipiahble In the matter of clerkships In the
S-nute was only settled by an armistice when
the equilibrium of that ain.ru-t body has again
seriously disturbed by ttse contest between
Unbam uud Jones. Ihe matter comes up on
the recommendation of the committee on
elections for a recount and although no purti
*4iu advantage Is professed to be desired, that
feature of the case Is not the smallest Item.
The uttempt on the part of the lieutenant?-
governor to appoint certain clerks developed
the fact rather more prominently than had
ever before been brought out, that he Is sim
ply an ornamental figurehead and not a mem
ber i-f the Senate. This turned down his as
pirations to apiNilnt clerks ami that quieted
ihe row. In the matter of legislation the
Senate Is not making a great success for I lie
reasou that political considerations Are too
prominent and public welfare too secondary.
The House has ouly settled down w ithin a
day or two. Its squabble over clerkships hav
ing lorn up the members too badly to enable
lhem to play Solon to the best advantage. Mr.
Funderburg lias been a conspicuous figure by
the reason of the fact (hat he Is the pivotal
member of the 83-32 combination ou which
the House was organized. It seems that
when Mr. Funderburg'-* dissatisfaction at the
distribution of patronage leaked out, tbe
members of the opposition made overtures to
wean him from the fold. Hut Mr. Funder
burg Is a man of Iron Jaw and fixed purpose
and. after a conference with his brother Re
publicans, all misunderstanding* were ad
justed, he got four clerkships and the goose
swings at the requisite altitude.
There i- a sentiment In favor <-f unseating
some of the members who Pilled to tile their
statement of election expenses, and If the ne
cossnry majority can be secured It l» not un
likely that a move of that kind will be at
tempted.
While the parliamentary battle was going
on In the House, in which the * spoils " was an
Important factor, one of the new members
from the Interior rose and with a majestic
sweep of his hand that commanded silence
and awe—triuken attention, said: “Mr.
Speaker, I have not came here to flitter away
the people's time. 1 want to get down to
business. ‘ A murmur of assent modided by
a grammatical shudder ran over the house,
but It failed to quit “flittering away the
Representative Booth of Lake County, a

the back and danced over bis frame until he
was but an unrecognizable mass of humanity.
Too much reform t>*«* suddenly Is not always a
good thing. The number of railroad passes

Sketch of General Hayes’ Life.
Rutherford Birchard Hayes was btirn in
Delaware. Ohio. October 4. 1*22. We was a

from Ken;.on college in lM'i. and subsequent
ly spent two years at the law school at < atn
brltlge. Massachusetts. In 1845 he was ad
mitted to the bar at Marietta. Ohio, ami com
mcneed the prnctlec of law at Fremont In
l-t!' He removed to Cincinnati, ami soon
h.d a very remunerative practice. Irt 1-01
i *■ abandoned the practice of bis profession
third Ohio volunteers. For his gallant ser
vice the battle of Winchester lie was bre-
M r. Haves' war record trade him very popu
lar in Ohio, and while still in the army he
-a- elected to emigre.s from the Second dis
trict. but refused to take Ills -eat until the
war-bonld be ended. He was re-elected in
iMi'i. and bad served one term when he was
elected governor of Ohio.
He Wi >s elected for the third time In 1875.
and while occupying this place was nominat
ed by the Republican party in 1876 as Its can
didate for president of the United States.
The contest was severe and close, and after
Ihe election, disputes arose as to the electoral
vote, of several delegated. The dispute was
finally referred to a commission composed of
five senator* and five representatives and five
judges of the .Supreme < ourt of ihe United
States. The commission decided by a vote of
- to 7 that the electoral votes of Ihe’ disputed
-utes should be given to Haves, and he was
thereby elected by a majority of one over
Samuel J. Tllden. Ho was Inaugurated March
4. 1877. After serving one term he retired
from public life and has since lived at Fre
mont.
Senator Murphy of New York.
Edward Murphy was chosen on Ihe 17th by
the New York legislature ns United States
senator to succeed Frank Hlscock.
11l tile A.-sembly there was a bit of excite
ment caused by Mr. Ketnpncr.whodenounced
Murphy as a candidate in the joint caucus a
w* el; ago. When Mr. Kempner'- name was
reached, he said: I beg to be excused from
voting, and shall briefly nnd pointedly state
my reasons:
“First The election of Edward Murphy.Jr
is dictated I* himself and by about three
other persons In utter defiance- of public sen
timent.
•■Second—He :> not a statesman either of
high or low degree, nnd consequently lit not
lit to represent this -talc in the United Su.es
Senate.
“Ib'rd —He has always been opposed to the
President-elect."
Here he was interrupted nnd overruled, but
continued : If then lam not allowed to ex
plain my vole. I must reluctantly and with
regret vote for the caucus choice, Edward
Murphy.”
An Information of murder in the first de
gree was tile.l in the District Court as Has
tings. Nebraska, on the U)th against Mrs
Edward W. Mason for the killing of Delavnri
S. Cole.
Mrs. Mason agreed to plead guilty to man
slaughter. This was accepted by the prosecu
tion. Flic said Cole offered her a clerical
position in his office, which she accepted. In
his office ho took advantage of her. Her
husband suspected her and accused her nnd
she con'eased. Her hu band told her Cole
must ho killed and that she must do the act
11c showed her how to use a revolver. Her
courage failed on several occasions when
about to commit the crime, and her husband
pounded and threatened her for two weeks
previous to the fatal night.
Judge Beal sentenced liqr to four years In
the pcisltcTiilary. Mason's trial will oocur In
March.
HUNGRY WORKMEN.
A FIGHT IN BRUSSELS' STREETS
A (treat Throng of Unemployed Work
ingmen Make a Demonstration
ami Have a Battle With
the Police.
There was a procession of unemployed
workingmen through the streets of Brusaela
on the 20th which resulted In scenes of vio
lence.
At un early hour men ltegan to gather front
all points In the city. After great confusion
the line started. No estimates have beeu
made as to the number participating, but In
view of the crowd. It was fortunate that they
hud no firearms. As a matter of course the
socialists had much. If not all, to do with the
procession, and w hen It started many men
begun to sing socialist songs. The procession
passed through a number of principal streets,
gro.i Ing noisier and more demonstrative as
tt was found that the police did not interfere.
Finally the mob stopped In front of a large
bakery and attempted to take the place. The
police were alert for something of this sort,
ami a number of them were quickly on the
scene ami prevented the looting of the shop.
The police allowed two men to enter the bak
ery and ask for bread. They damanded food
ami met with a prompt nnd decided refusal.
They then returned to the street and the mob
marched on veiling, shouting uud threaten
ing.
Finally the mob l*ecame so disorderly that
a body of 200 police attempted to disperse
them. The mob resisted and a desperate
melee occurred, In which volleys of stone*
were thrown at the officers. Several of the
gendarmes were badly Injured. The police,
with swords, charged the crowd nnd Inflicted
sword cuts on the rioters. The procession
was finally broken up. but even then Isolated
batches of the rioters continued lighting for
hours. The leaders of the mob were captur
ed by the police.
The affair has caused much excitement So
the eity, and It Is feared further trotM6 will
occur.
Revolution try hand-bills have been scatter
ed broadcast and posted on walls and trees.
In the bills the leaders exhort the men who
cannot get work to go from house to house In
the most arUtocratic part of the city and de
mand food and clothing. If anybody refuses
to grant these demands, the workingmen arc
urged to force their way In and help them
selves.

Hayes in the Parade.
An incident of the Grand Army parade lr

touching simplicity of the whole life nnd
character of rx President Hayes.
.‘-'landing In a group of distinguished
officials in the midst of the reviewing stand
fronting the treasury department, the most
noted one of the foreign ministers had his at

head uncovered and face thrown well hack
so that the sunlight fell upon It and lib snow
white locks, the ex-Preshlent was trudging
along with precise martial step, keeping time
with his old comrades of the state of Ohio. It
wa» entirely unaffected and caused th? for

for the Old World is this. By this net today
your ex-President lias demonstrated lo ihe
world the stability of your democracy and
simplicity of your whole political system.”
Ex-Preshlent Hayes’ part In the memorable

life to march patiently along tn line with men
who had carried the muskets in the regiments,
obeying strictly the order of bis post com

The Colorado and Henry Mountain Gold
Fields.
From present indications Hie term Ban
Juan gold fields will have to be changed to
the Colorado and Henry Mountain gold fields,
says the NMfl* Mining journal.
The reported find on Ban Juan rixer docs
not pan out. No gold has been taken out
and nothing more than fine flour gold has
l***eii found by prospectors. Men are leaving
the river every day. and not more than 170
men have been on the river at -try one time.
No active mining wo; k U being done by the
l luh *t Arizona Mining Uo. Men that are
r.ow going dowu on the Ban Juan do not as a
rule remain more than a day or two. taking
only sufficient time to prospectors to work It
a! a profit. The best placers are on the Colo
rado, but It will require the. rtpendlturc of
eon-ddcrald** enplt*l to work them. The tiue
gold fields are not on the Sun Juan but In the
Henry Mountains nnd the streams and gulches
leading thence to the Colorado. Here Is the
latest from Green River:
For some months negotiations have been
pending for syndication of certain Colorado
river placers. This niovemwil Is necessary
for the economic development of the various
nropcrtlc*. They are all good Hahns. l>Ui
heavy hydraulic and amalgamating machin
ery is required. It Is now announced that
the preliminaries are satisfactorily arranged
and that Salt Lake and Denver capital will
proceed to fully develop the properties. The
placing of tlil= machinery will Involve an Im
mediate outlay of at least a quarter million
dollars. The impetus that this movement
will give to other and equally valuable proj*-
ertics on the Colorado w ill place Ihe camp In
tbe from ranks of great producers, giving it
deserving prominence nnd bringing necessary
prospectors to develop the river. Duly a Very
small portion of the river has had mole than
a mere cursory examination. There arc hun
dreds of small gulches and side canons unlo
ealed. Many of these are at present compar
atively Inaccessible, but the opening up of
the region will obviate the existing difficul
ties and place supplies within ca«y reach.
The present tunc i~ an Bpportune one for ex
perienced prospectors. As fast ns good prop
erties arc located, not only ou tin- river, hut

Gold in Routt County.
Li an Interview with a reporter of the As
pen Timrx Mr. J. D. Hooper of that city gave
the following information about the geild
fields of Routt eaunty:
'•There are two ways of reaching the filacer
mines of Routt county.” said Mr. Hooper.
"One Is by tpe nay of Rifle creek, and the
other byway of Rawlins,a point on the Union
Pacific about midway the f-outh line of
Wyoming. From Rifle you go by stage and
the distance Is about ninety miles north.
From Rawlins you stage, going south, the
distance being about seventy miles. Dixon
Is the point of destination iu Point county
where the gold bars are found. Public atten
tion wan drawn to these diggings last spring
and some prospecting done, but all by out
side parties, as the people residing In the vi
cinity take very little interest 111 matters of
that kind. Bo long its there l» a ileer or an
tlk In sight they have no time to waste on
such little matters a* gold nnd silver.
•One of Routt county's citizens, more en
terprising than his fellows, went so far la-t
summer as to do a little prospecting and was
well satisfied with Ihe results. Ills name I*
Frank Hintnun. He put In a little ditch and
went to work and soon became convinced
that the dirt would pay well. Ills means
were limited, but he went over to Rock
Springs and soon formed n company to put in
a good ditch and go to work on a large scale.
This company have their ditch about • om
pleteil and wiil goto work this spring in dead
earnest. They have secured options on all
the ground they Could get and have no dotibl
of making it pay.
“The gold bars run six miles on Four Mile
creek, and can be easily worked, as the gravel
Is very fine with no boulders. The gold Is
fine and of a very pure quality, and there i
no danger of water overflowing the bar. I
panned the entire Imr ami took samples from
twenty different holes. I place my c-Hmaie
of the value of the ground at from Ift to 35
cents per yard, nnd am confident that It can
be worked to a profit for at lead three months
In the year.that Is fromjthc Ist of April to Ihe
last of June, during which time the creek af
fords plenty of water. Every pan that I
washed showed well."
Mr. Hooper further said that he Imd brought
back fully 100 pounds of samples, properly
marked, nnd would have them tested and that
If the assays proved anything like lie antici
pated. lie certainly would become personally
interested in tlie working of the placer geld
mine of Routt county.
Notes.
There are thirty mills in operation In Bo il
dcrcounty.
A two-foot vein of coni has been struck in
an Kaglc county silver mine.
Crecde camp’s ore shipments for week be
fore last were the largest In Its history. They
were as follows: Amethyst 70 cars. New
York 82 cars. Last Chance 22 cars; total 144
cars; weight2,2sotons.
The old Bassiek mine in Custer county has
been taken hold of by a new company headed
by Warner Miller of New York. Among the
directors Is N. M. Tabor. It Is Intended to
work the mine again.
Recent assays of a specimen of Ihe rich ore
coming from the Pay Rock showed 66.7. 70.6
and 71.5 per cent, sliver respectively. These
rich specimens occur In a large vein of
galena, nnd iu composition are Identical with
the jnlpaltc of Jalapa, Mexico. The per cent,
of silver equals the tier cent, of lead found In
the highest grade of lead ores in the vicinity.

OVER A HUNDRED DEAD.
A Terrible Fatality la a Bohemian Coal
litaa.
There nu an awful catastrophe at Dus.
Bohemia, on tho 24th. Otia hundred and
thirty coal miners lost their lives as the re
sult of an explosion.
A cairo full of miners bud been lowered
half wdy down the shaft when the ground
trembled, it loild ruirtbtlng report was heard,
ami the cable attached to the cage pave such
a lurch that the lowering machinery broke.
A rush of air and dirt from the pit's mouth,
the sound of crushing Umbers and the erics
of the men In the cage, gave warning to those
above of the extent of the disaster.
Help was summoned, the machinery was re
paired after a delay of half an hour and the
cage was raised. Ten of the occupants had
been killed Instantly by tbe shock, ten had
sufTcrcd fractures from which they cannot re
cover, live who hud broken lliubs and Internal
Inlurlcs will live. They had been half suffo
cated by the gas rising In the shaft and said
that no man could live below.
An hour later the superintendent of the
mine and live miners from the night shift
went down In the cage. They were unable to
go more than u hundred yards from the shaft
Into the gallery, but they found fourteen
dead bodies. Of the fifty men who were
waiting for the cage, ten had been killed and
forty had been partially crushed by full
ing timbers or half suffocated by the foul air.
A short distance from the Minft tbe superin
tendent found four dead bodies. Which hail
been crushed beyond recognition by a falling
beam.
The melt Who had been brought up from
the bottom said that n few minutes after the
explosion they had heard cries and groans
from the mouth of the gallery, about 300
yards from the shaft. There was heavy lim
ber work at this place and they believed that
the men In this gallery hud been Imprisoned
by the falling beams. They believed that
some forty men had been at work there.
Shortly before the cage came down they said
the erics ceased.
Another rescue party went dow n at once,
and after three of them had been carried
back to the shaft unconscious penetrated to
the entrance of the gallery. The entrance
was completely blocked by the wrecked wood
work. The rescue party could see several
dead bodies on the other side of the timbers,
but were unable to get at them, and returned
to the top empty-handed. Ills believed that
nil the men In the gallery were suffocated oi
kiln'd by the shock of the explosion. Twelve
miners w ho worked In the extreme Interior of
the mine, on the n'ght shift, and had not
started for the shaft so soon as their com
panions, are also believed to be dead.
All hope of reselling alive the men wbc
were entombed by the explosion Ims been
abandoned. An Investigation of the list f.l
employes reveals the fact that 130 men lost
their lives In the disaster, as it Is generally
conceded that those not killed by the explo
sion must have been suffocated by the after
damp. The mine Is being cleared of tlu
w reckage ns rapidly as possible. Kvcry effort
will be made to recover the bodies of the
dead. Many pitiable and heart-rending
scenes were witnessed about the mouth of tin
shaft when It was announced by the mine
officials that beyoml a shadow of doubt every
man In the mine wns dead. No explanation
has yet been made as to how tho explosion
occurred. An Immense <iunntily of after
damp lias accumulated In the mine.
Kansas’ Populist Senator.
The Populists of the,Kansas legislature held
n jolilt session Uti the 25th ami elected .ludge

Martin received the solid vote of the twenty
live Populists and Democrats in the Senate,
and in the Populist House lie received sixty
two votes, tills number including several of
those who have been seated by the Populists
on contests.
The election of Martin leaves the situation
almost as much complicated aa before.
Though be Is declared elected, it was done by
the votes of a House, tlic constitutionality of
wldcli Is In dispute.
The Republicans nnd the stalwart Demo
crats claim that 11n-election Is it farce, for
the reason that the Populist House is ail Ille
gal body and none of its acti can be legal’.
The Republicans find themselves In a pre
dicament for tbe reason that they ure unable
to muster a <|iiorunt to vote on senator, anil
will not be able to do so until their fight* ii
the House have been passed upon by tin !
courtj. If the courts decide that tbe Repub
licans hare the constitutional lower house,
then they will elect another senator, who
will undoubtedly be a straight-out Democrat,

England In Egypt.
The good Impression at Cairo caused by the
success of (treat Britain's intervention In tin
Kgyptian cabinet affair is giving way to a
feeling of great anxiety among the European
residents in eon sequence of the Almost defi

The kbedivo's open encouragement of popular
demonstration* in his favor by ostentation*
attendance at prayers In the mosque anil per
formances in tbe opera house has had the ef
fect of greatly Increasing the excitement
among the natives, caused by the action of
the British government. English officials
there believe that the khedive's course ha*
greatly shaken the British position In Egypt
and endangered the progreas of the reform*
Instituted by tbe British government. The

to dismiss all tbe highest English officials.

MR. CLEVELAND’S POLICY
PLANS FOR HIS ADMINISTRA
TION,
A Prognostication that He Wilt Extend
Civil ferric* Reform to Many
Offices.
The New York Tribune says that Mr. Cleve
land has announced the following as his
policy In making appointments: “The next
administration will be a business men’s ad
ministration. By that I mean business men
will have the preference In appointments.
Of course, the business men will be Demo
crats, but In muking appointments 1 shall
consider tlic business records of applicants.
That will have a greater weight with me than
the indorsement of political organizations.
1 shall appoint successful business men as
the heads of departments, and I shall expect
this policy to be carried out in all depart
ments of the government. This is a time
when business men are needed. The ques
tions before the American people arc ques
tions that can best be solved by buslncsi* men.
Reforms In the tariff and economy in the
government can bo easily accomplished if
plain, practical, honest btplness men are
selected."
Politicians have suspected lor some .time
that Cleveland was contemplating a line of
policy which will be, If he carries It out, un
usual. On no other ground ran they explain
his peculiar and seeming indifference when
the question of patronage is discussed before
hlui. Tills impression is confirmed by new*
which was learned a few days ago and which
conies from an authority usually Correct,
which says that the president-elect has made
up his mind to make only such changes iti
offices as are necessary In order to secure Iti
the higher administrative offices those who
will be In sympathy with his views and the
administration.
Cleveland Is now disposed to carry out the
spirit of civil service reform so far that there
will l»c no general removals In minor office*
except for cause, and no office holders will be
removed until their terms expire. Rut it I*
his purpose to go even further than this. He
Is now somewhat disposed to lay down as n
rule for Ills action that In nearly all case*
where the Incumbent of an office lias shown
capacity and Integrity, nnd has administered
the office on business-like principles, not per
mitting Its use as a political agency, tfie In
cumbent will be reappointed, whatever hi*
politics may be.
Mr. Cleveland thinks thut In all case*
where presidential appointments arc to b*
acted upon the first question which he w 111
ask will lie: "Has the Incumbent's term ex
pired!" If It lias not then he will sny lie can
pay uo attention to that case until the time
comes when It Is necessary for him to take
action. If an Incumbent's term lias expired
or Is about to expire, Mr. Cleveland will then
ask: "How has this man administered his
office! What is his record.' Has he conduct*
cd It in a business-like manner! Arc Ills rc ;
ports to the department concerning him good?
Hus It made It a political agency!"
If all these questions be answered satisfac
torily to Cleveland, then he will be likely tt
reappoint such Incumbent If he continues hi*
present disposition after he enters the White
nousc. Of course, some of the Important of
fices through which the administration Is to be
directly manifested ami its wishes carried out
must be filled by men who arc In sympathy
with the President.
Mr. Cleveland does not believe that civil
serf It*. A rcf«»rui goes so far, for Instance, as 1c
demand the retention of competent assistants
In various departments like an assistant sec
retary of the treasury, nfir does he think Hint
the reform Idea should Include those who are
nt the head of the greater custom houses In
the United Btates, although It is his opinion
that It should protect tbe majority of subordi
nates In these offices.
A Much Married Rascal.
J. 11. Caldwell, with several aliases, the
most cunning prisoner the government liar
hail for some time. Is under arrest at Cincin
nati, charged with misusing the mails. He
would write letters representing that he had
large wholesale fruit establishments in Flor
ida, aad would offer fruit to commission mer
chants in the North nt prices 26 to 50 rents
per box less than Hie regular market price.
His letters ail stated Hint bo sold only for
cash, and ail orders nui a t lie accompanied by
nt least one-half of the money.
The postmaster at Archer and Plant City,
Florida, nnd other points where lie expected
his letter orders, were requested to forward
his mail to him. In this way lie did n inar
vcloWrbiijlness for ». time. Since his incar
ceration the government has learned that he
lias a wife and seven children at Carrollton,
Kentucky, another nt Owensboro. Kentucky,
whose maiden name was Matilda Evers.
Another who claims to be bis wife Is a for
mer w Idow at New Albany, who. before she
met Caldwell, wns Mrs. Kiln Jasper. She
only lived with him tw<« weeks. In that time
he borrowed $1,700 from hei* fo start a shoe
store nt Hhelbyvlllc, Indiana, lien- he met
(Iracc (Irccn, whom lie pretended to marry
and took with him to Dalton, Georgia, where
bo deserted her. When next heard of he left
••widows" nt Cadiz, Ohio; Maysvlllc, Ken
tucky; Columbus, Ohio, nnd Ripley, Ohio.
He courted and proposed aNo to a Mrs. Poor
of Cincinnati, whom he met at sonic river
town In Illinois. She was a rich widow and
lie succeeded in fleecing her out of several
hundred dollars. It Is likely that Caldwell
will be taken to Leavenworth, Indiana, where
indictments nre pending against him for em
bezzlement. Four of bis w ives and several
children arc there walling Ills coining.
Terrific Gas Explosion.
The Dockcy hotel at Anderson, Indiana,
was shaken from top to Irnttom by a terrific
gas explosion last Monday night. Tbe house
was full of guests nnd a regular stninpede
followed. Fortunately not a single one was
Injured nnd the damage to property Is only
slight. The explosion was followed by fire,
and all the guests ran out Into the street,
many of them with only their night clothes
on.
Mrs. J. tV. Connors of Chicago, occupied
room 10. She was asleep when the explosion
occurred, and the force of It threw lier out of
lied. She was rescued before the flumes bad
gained much headway. The total leas of fire
and explosion will not exceed SIO,(KM), which
1* fully covered by Insurance. The cause of
the explosion is due to a broken gas pipe In
the street not far from the hotel building.
Gas escaped from It nnd passed through the
ground Into the basement, and was there Ig
nited by a heater.
Fooling With the British Lion.
A dispatch from Guatemala says that a
moil recently attacked the British legation
and beat Minister Gosling’s son so severely
lie may die. His younger son shot one of the
mob dend. Tbe British warship Melpomene
Is at San Jose and her commander has tele
graphed for the warship Nymph to come and
assist her In blockading tbe harbor so repara
tion mny be obtained without the bombard
ment of the port. President Barrios Is said
to have refused so fnr to grant the British de
mands for reparation. Ho protests that he is
|M>werless to do so; any attempt on his part
to atone for the outrages would cause nn In
dian uprising, if not a general revolution. He
begged the British minister ami commander
to wait until popular feeling lind subsided lie
fore Hiey net. The Immediate cause of the
riot is not mentioned in the dispatch.
Dissatisfaction in Hayti.
Mail advices from ilaytl fully confirm form
er reports as to tlic progress of the revolu
tion. Hlppolytc is making strong efforts to
crush the revolutionists anil has inct with
partial success.
The revolution apparently was started pre
maturely and the revolutionists had not com
pleted their organization. Tho vast majority
of the people sympathize openly with the
revolutionists, and mo«t of the others assist
them eovcrtly. The big commercial houses
are also supporting the enemies of the present
government both on the island and abroad.
