municated to his colleagues the views
of the Btiroiioaii nnd American press
In regard to tho now ministry. He
points out that tho foreign newspapers
are almost unanimously of the opinion
that the program of Senor Segastn,
the now premier, has caused an Im
portant change In the attitude of the
Washington cabinet, leading to the
belief that the Cuban question will
now enter upon a more favorable
phase and demonstrating that the
steps taken by tho ministry linvo hud
an excellent effect In showing that
thu government Is choosing practical
means to solve the existing difllcullies.
The minister for the colonics, Senor
Morel, announced at the cabinet meet
ing that with a view to proving tho
sincerity of the government's promise
to grant tiutonomy to Cuba, he has
telegraphed to Senor Montoro, lender
of tlie Autonomist party, asking him
to nomiiinte candidates for uppolnt
ment for some of tlio important posts
under thu Cuban administration.
A semi-ollleinl statement, issued
