annihilation nf the Cuban people on

that they hail progressed to the stage

"If the United States intends talcing

in stentorian tones. In the past the
I ntted States had not hesitated to
take the position of recognizing liide
peiideuce under circumstances similar
to theno now existing In Cuba.
(Juotlug from International author

ing the United States in considering a
proposition for activu intervention to
restore public order ami in behalf of

Mr. Lindsay, 4"s thu only babls which

qulrhiy resent any net they regarded
as Injurious to them. Hut, ho felt
thnt tho tlino hud eomo when the
United States must lnterveuo to put

not re-enter on tho legal arguments so
fullv covered bv Mr. .Morgan, but lio
reierrcd to several pamphlets present
eel by Mr. F.strada I'alina, the agent
and representative of tho liibmsin

W.vmii.S'Otov, Feb. 20 The remark
able speech of Mr. Carter In the Sen
ate, taken In connection with that of
Sr-r rotary Carlisle at the Manhattan
club in New York a few days ago, has
started a good deal of talk about a re
organization of the old political par
ties ami a division of the people upon
new lines, lloth the ISepublicans and
the Democrats seem almost hopelessly
divided upon thu same isuc, and that)
the most important before the Ameri
can pcoplo to-day. Tho parties nro
united upon every other. More
than h-ilf the Democrats In (.'on
gress declare that they will not
support the candidate to be nomi
nated at Chicago unless lie pledges
hlm-.clf to free coinage A considera
ble pot Hon of tlie Republicans say the
same concerning the candidate to bo
nominated at St. Louis. Then why, il
Is asked, cannot those in botli parties
who think- ulllco get together and
inline men who agree with them? A
great many people bellevo that if dls
cusiion ami division continues much
longer that will happen. Secretary
Morton suggested such an expectation
upon his part in a newspaper inter
view not long ago, and there ;uo
those who claim to have heard the
Pi esident predict a general break jip
and reo ganizatlon before the end of
this administration, but it is not likely
that there will bo any bolting from
either party until after the national
conventions arc held and the platforms
Thu lSepubllcan leaders do not ex
pect any bolt. Koth Mr. Teller and
Mr. Carter, who announced the terms
of the silver Senators, declare that
they will not leave the lSepubllcan
party, and that they cannot bo driven
out no matter who Is nominated.
"I am a lSepubllcan anil I always
expect to bo a IScptiblican," said Mr.
Teller. "1 urn just as good a Uupitb
loin as .John Sherman or George F.
Hoar, and thero Is just as much prob
ability of their leaving the party as
there is of my leaving it, I have said
that 1 will not support the lSepubllcan
candidate for the presidency unless
we can make (foiuo satisfactory agree
ment on iho silver question. I think
that agreement can bo made, but If it
is found itupoisiole, I wilt still con
tinue to bo a Republican. I do not
intend to vote the Democratic ticket,
no matter wlio Is nominated on cither
