crnl L. II. Carpenter, who was mili
tary governor of tho provlnco of
Puerto I'rlnclpo, Cuba, until tho re
com merging of that provlnco Into
tho military tlcpartmont of Santiago,
arrived In this city on tho Munnou
line steamer Ollnda. About Cuba, hor
climate, her rosourcos, her people and
her future he Is enthusiastic.
"My term as military governor of
Puerto I'rlnclpo," ho said, "extended
over n porlod of nine months. In that
time I had a very good opportunity to
study tho Cubans and I must say 1
found them to ba a dooilo, kind and
faithful tort of people. They aro
sentimental, howover, to tho last do
grcc, aud this sentimentality Is caus
ing them tc cliafo a good deal under
tho American yoke. Among tho
classes which furnlshod tho soldiers,
tho leaders and tho patriots, there Is
a strong desire for Itnmcdlato Inde
pendence. TIicbo men havo nothing
to logo and they aro sot upon estab
lishing a government of their own.
This dcslro may bo augmented by tho
growing fooling of distrust of Ameri
cans. Tho opinion scouts to bo gain
ing ground that America doos not In
tend to vacato tho island and all this
tulle about educating the pooplo to
tolf government is simply a means of
prolonging tho deception. Hut among
the wealthy men of tho country and
tho Spaniards no such feeling exists.
Thoy aro just as anxious for speedy
annexation to tho Uuttod States as
tho other class is

with tho United

Thero would bo no market opon to
them and tho republic would Had It a
hard matter to woo prosporlty.
"I do not think tho Spaniards in
Cuba aro a doslrablo class of citizens.
They own nearly all tho stores and
aro almost without exception well-to-do
men, yet thoy never Invest tholr
monoy In Cuba. Thoy either hoard It
or invest it in Spain, aud consequent
ly they impoverish rather than benefit
tho island. Havani, I botlove, is tho
third largest port in tho Western
hemlsphoro,, but despite that fact, tho
city is poor, because most of tho bus
iness is douo by Spaniards, aud they
nru not at all public spirited."

Wahhinoton, Aug. 1. Mrs. Kato
Chaso Spraguo, wife of a former gov
ernor of Rhodo Island, and tho
daughter of tho lato Salmon P. Chase,
govornor of Ohio, secretary of tho
treasury and ohiof justice of the
Unltod Stntos supremo court, died
at her homestead, "Edgowood," in
Washington's suburbs, early this
morning. Sho was SO yoars old.
For throo months sho had been ill,
but had consented to modlcal treat

daughters, Miss Kittto Sprague, who
lived with her mother; Miss Portia
Spraguo of Narragansott Plor, and
Mrs. Donaldson of Brooklyn.
Tho death ends n career of ex
tremes. Until her brilliant mar
riage with tho war governor of Rhodo
Island, tho daughter of tho chief jus
tice had had an universally happy life.
Aftor that time sho had Uttlo except
sorrow. Four years ago tho old Chase
homestead, Edgowood, was saved from
passing from her only by tho kindness
of tho father's friends. It was ex
pected two months tigo that the plauo
would go at auction.
Early in her childhood Kathcrlno
Chaso was loft mothorless. Hor
beauty, raro intellectual abilities and
endearing qualities mado hor tho idol
of her distinguished father. When
ho was in Washington as socrotary of
tho treasury during tho war, this
young daughter presided over Ids es
tablishment. Tho town house of the
groat war financier, on tho corner of
Sixth nnd E stroets, is to this day un
iversally known as tho Chaso mansion.
Tho cabinet In thoso days was not
very strong socially, and Kato Chaso
ruled it absolutely. Mrs. Lincoln was
simply swept into tho corner when
this imperious young beauty appeared
leaning upon tho arm of tho great
nccrotary. So strong was tho dcslro
to mako hor father President, that it

Mrs. Chaso was in many respects
one ot tho most remarkable women

In tho days of her prime there was
no disputing her leadership. Sho

As long as Chief Justice Chaso lived
his brilliant daughtor continued to be
a power lu Washington, socially and
politically. Tho failure of the Repub
lican party to nominate Salmon P.
Chaso for tho Presidency gave tho
death blow to tho ambitious hopes of
