An Havana, Cuba, dispatch to tho
Jsew York World says: (Jovornor Ma
goou has Issued a decree prescribing
the organization of the new Cuban
army. After quoting tho law of last
September providing for tho Increase
oC the rural guard to 10,000 men and
tho artillery to '2,000 men, tho decree
declares that all able bodied male citi
zens between twenty-one and forty
five years of age shall constitute the

ii permanent army and a force of mi
litia. Tho militia is to bo utilized only
In cases of emergency. Tho pernia
noiil army is to be designated the
'Armed Force of tho Republic." Roth
forces arc lo bo under the solo author
ity of tho executive for tho suppres
sion of ladronism, insurrection, illegal
gatherings, breaches of tho peace and
other violations of the law.

The Discussion In an editorial ar
ticle on tho decree, says:
"The whole country 'will be surprised
by the order written in the hand of
a foreign governor, establishing in Ou
ba compulsory military service 0
one can hope that the plan announced
JS .1 ,u'ron'T antl organization of
the rural guard will fall to tend to the
militarization of our country. From
today all Cubans must bo soldiers."
An Havana, Cuba, dispatch to the
New York World follows-
U Is authentically reported hero
Unit Manuel Stlviera, the former ut
vnnn banker, who was roPl rtwl to
have been short nearly 91,000,000, and
who tied to Venezuela last October,
has cornered all the available shipping
cattle of thai country over (50,000
bead representing over $ 1 ,500,000.
Venezuela .practically supplies the
Cuban market, and Silviera's move
will embarrass the local stockmen
greatly, probably forcing them to pur
chase through him. Con. Jose Miguel
dome,, prominently mentioned for Uio
presidency of Cuba, left a i'ow days
ago for Caracas. It is said that lie
goes to arrange with Silvlera details
for the control of the Cuban beef
trade. (Jomez will probably attend co

A CONSCIENTIOUS EXPRESSMAN
Loron Baker, who, in addition to
being an agent for the American Ex
press company, is a devout Christian,
with the courage of his convictions,
resigned his position with the com
pany rather than deliver a package
containing tobacco. Baker holds,
among other beliefs, that tobacco and
whiskey are evils not to be compro
mised with, and his belief would not
permit him to place in the hands of
another man the means of becoming
a slave to the weed. Consequently
he handed in his resignation, which
was accepted. Cincinnati Enquirer.
