The Herald last week in giving
advice to E. A. Holmes, of Wallowa,
says: "Mr. Holmes should smoth

Within a few weeks, on the 20th

will be withdrawn from tlie Island
of Cuba, and the people of that
Island will sUrt out for themselves
as an independent republic. .They
have elected General Palma a3
their first President. They" had
long waged war with Spain to ge
cure their independence, and ap
parently never would have succeed
ed without the powerful assistance
bf the armies and navy of ' the
United States. Now Cuba takes
its place as an independent nation
among the nations of the world.
Will the Cubans use wisely the
freedom and independence that so
speedily came to them under cir
cumstances different than any
other nation ever achieved liberty
and independence? Time alone
will tell. If they do the people of
the United States will rejoice. It
is the general opinion that within
a few years the Cubans will seek
annexation to the United State?
and that the Cuban republic will
eventually become a part of this
