OCTOBER 3, Lee Talks About Cuba. People of the Island Want a Stable Government of Their Own. Washington. D. 0 , Sept 22.? General Fitzhugh Lee, who has re? turned from Cuba on a leave of absence is here. Speaking todaj of the situation in Cuba, be said : "The Cubans have held their local elections preliminary to the establish ment of a government and will meet in convention to provide for the machinery of government. By the terms of. the fourth clause of the re solution of intervention to secure the freedom of Cuba, congress disclaim? ed any intention to exercise sover? eignty over Cuba except for the pacification of the island and promis ed to leave ita government and con trol to its people when that should be accomplished. Under this declara? tion steps have been taken lookiDg to the establishment of a stable government by the people. "In the exercise of franchise those who served in the army of the re? volution against Spain are exempted from the restriction placed upon the voter that be must be possessed of two hundred dollars worth of pro perty or be able to read and write All who served in tl-> revolutionary army are at liberty to vote without restriction. "The 'Revolutionary party,' which has been largely successful in the re? cent elections, desires immediate independence, without any sort of protectorate, control or supervision by the United States, and the im? mediate withdrawal of the American troops The more conservative peo? ple merchants and business men, many of whom are Spanish, and the Cubans of some wealth and substan tial business interests, together with the foreigners, of whom there are many of different nationalities, desire continuance of the supervision of the United States. "The United States undertook re? sponsibility for the establishment of a stable form of government and is pledged to the protection of the British, Germsn, French and other foreign subjects residing and doing business in Cuba If the Cubans form an ertirely independent govern? ment, rejecting all supervision or control by the United States and the United States acquiescing withdraws its troops, relinquishing all authority, a question arises ss to the guaranteed protection of foreign interests "If any disorder should arise and foreign subjects should be injured and foreign interests suffer, all re< sponsibility being abandoned by the United States, the power whose sub jects were injured or where interests were threstened would undoubtedly send war vessels, perhaps, many ol them, to the ports of Cuba to insure the protection which we no longei gave, and to compel reparation ol injury that was done You under stand what this would mean ? I dc not know what this government will do if a government which reject! connection with the United States it organized snd the withdrawal of out troopo demanded. It may be if then ta plain indication of disorder or in ability on the part of the newly form ed government to preserve order and to protect foreigners, that we will re tain troops on the island for the pur? poses of protection until the stability of the new government is assured " - m * ? ? - ? ?
