Document That Contains
Provisions of Piatt
WITH UNITED STATES
Summary of the Things
the Island Under
takes. Havana, May 23. The permanent
treaty between the United States and
Cnla in which is lneonorated all the
provisions of the l'latt amendment,
lias been signed.
Washington, May 23. Minister
Squiers has been at work for several
months in the negotiations with the
Cuba ii government which have been
concluded by the signing of the perma
nent treaty which includes word for
word the provisions of the Piatt amend
ment. This amendment was made a
part of the army appropriation act of
the second session of the Fifty-sixth
congress. It therefore became a law
of the United States. Later it was
added by the Cubans as an appendix
to the constitution adopted by them.
Its iueoi'iMtration into the form of a
treaty is in accordance with provision
eight of the amendment, which speci
fied by way of further assurance that
".the government of Cuba will embody
the foregoing provisions into a perma
nent treaty with the United States."
1'rovisions of the Piatt Amendment,
These provisions succinctly stated
are as follows: Cuba is never to en
ter into any treaty or other compact
with any foreign power which will im
pair its independence. The Cuban gov
ernment is not to assume nor contract
any public debt to pay theinterest up
on which and to maKo reasonable sink
ing fund provision for the ultimate
payment or delivery, the revenues of
the island after paying the govern
ment expenses, shall be Indequate. Cu
ba consents that the United States
may lnterveii3 for the preservation of
Cuban independence. Cuba rati ties all
nets of the United States in Cuba done
during the military occupation. Culta
will make provision for the sanitation
of the cities of the Island to the end
that a recurrence of epidemic and in
fectious diseases may le prevented.
Another Treaty Is Yet Necessary.
While tlu permanent treaty men
tioned by Minister Squiers contains the
provisions of the l'latt amendment re
garding the Isle of Pines," the acquisi
tion of coaling stations by the United
States, the final settlement of those
questions wh:h will involve the own
ership of the Isle of Pines and the
tpecitic lweation of the coaling station
will be made the subject of a special
treaty or treaties between the United
States and Cuba.

LAEOR AND THE WEATHER ,
Dominant Influences In the lluslness
World, Which Is Watching Them
lloth Very Closely.
New York, May 23. U. G. Dun &
Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade today
says: Weatlnr conditions ami the la
bor situation are the dominant Influ
ences in th- business world. Unrea
sonably high temiKrature at many
points, especially in the east, stimu
lated retail trade in wearing apparel
and other summer merchandise to an
unusual degree, but had a most un
satisfactory Affect upon vegetation,
which was promptly reflected in dimin
ished orders for. supplies, and iin some
acses there were cancellations. More
conservatism wa also shown at the in
acres there were mediations. More
conservatism was also shown at the in
jury to the great staple crops is yet re
ported, the delay to planting induces
caution among dealers.
On the whole there are fewer wage
earners voluntarily idle, yet the spir
it of unrest has caused the anbnndon
laent of some new enterprisesaud post
increment of others, which means less
demand for structural materials and
la I tor. Payments are also less prompt,
time often being asked where former
ly cash transaction for a slight dis
count were the rule. Aside from these
two adverse factors the trade situa
tion is favorable, and with average
weather and industrial peace there is
every prospvt of continued prosperi
ty throughout the country.- Manufac
turing plants are general, well occu
pied, especially in footwear, irpn and
steel. Traffic, on the railways is heavy,
earnings thus far reported for May ex
ceeding last year's by 13.5 per cent,
and surpassing 1JH by 25.7 per cent.
Failures this week are 101 in the

and 14 in Canada, compared with 12
a year ago.

HEBEEWS DSERTING THEIR HOMES
Fearing Further liarbaritiea Idke
KischenetT Honor to tbo
London, May 23. Letters have
reached the publishers of the Rou
manian RuUotin in this city which con
firm an Odessa dispatch of May 12 to
the effect that the Jewish population
on both sides of the Roumanian-Russian
frontier im the region of I5cs
sarabia is deserting Its business and
homes from fear of a general mas
sacre. Apparently the anti-Seuiite are
resorting to "very conceivable means
to etrrorize the .lews, freely proclaim
ing that the Kischemff massacre is a
sample of the treatment in store for all
members of the race if they "do not
immediately quit the country.
Old Lie Again Itepented.
Inflammatory hand-bills are being
strewn about the cities declaring that
the Jews have invaded the land like
locusts, not only sapping the economic
life of the Christians but also com
mitting ritualistic murders on every
hand with Christian babes as victims.
These manifestos declare that the time
for legal measures against the in
vaders is gone and adjure the jwople to
use more effective weapons.
Government Helps the Barbarians.
Meanwhile the Roumanian govern
ment, it is alleged, is persevering in
the attempt to create economic dis
criminations against Jews such as will
leave the Hebrews absolutely unable
to find prolitableemployment either for
their time or money from one end of
the kingdom to the other. The letters
received by The Bulletin agree in the
opinion that the anti-Semite agitation
lth in Bessarabia and Rouinania.does
not Spring from the rank and hie of
the citizens, but is due to the initia
tive of professional agitators. How
ever, it is said that the spirit of dis
content so widely prevalent makes the
masses plasti? material for the forma
tion of mob rule.

St. Petersburg. May 23. Writing to
a eorresioiidiit. a prominent Jew in
Kieff relates how scenes similar to
those in Kischeneff were avoided in
"the Jerusalem of Russia:"
"Immediately after the massacre In
Kischeneff," says the Kieff correspond
ent, "tho students at the f University
of Polytechnic here, encouraged by
some of their professors and by many
enlightened Russians headed by a
member of the provincial council, or
ganized a vigilance committee; divided
the town into districts and stood on
"Young men armed with revolvers,
daggers and clubs formed also a cyclist
brigade and watched every place where
the Jews were likely to bo attacked.
During three days and nights the town
was in great r.larm. sinoe it was known
that the most dangerous of the Kisch
eneff rioters had come to Kieff. Once
nn atetmpt was made to start disor
ders, but the ruffians were quickly
surrounded by the vigilantes.
"Seeing this, and f wiring the -onsc-queneos
of a light among the Rus
sians, the police promptly interfered
and arrested more than 100 of the most
notorious of the would-be rioters. In
another provincial town. Piensk, a
proclamation was spread in which the
monarchist committee invited all loyal
Christian subjects of the czar to attack
the Jews, including the Zionists. The
