Roosevelt Urges Approval of
Cuban Reciprocity Treaty.
FAITH OF NATION IS PLEDGED.
.Chief Executive Says Legislation In
Question Is Demanded Not Only by
Our Interests , but by Our Honor-
Plea for Island Republic.
Washington , Nov. 10. The second
day of the special session of congress
was devoted to the reading of the
president's message , urging the en
action of legislation necessary to
make effective the Cuban reciprocity
treaty. The following Is the text .of
the message :
Vo DIP Semite nnd House of Itcprccrntn-
I have convened the congress that
it may consider the legislation ncecs-
oary to put Into operation the coin-
morclal treaty with Cuba , which was
ratified by the senate at its last scs-
Ion nnd subsequently by the Cuban
government. I deem such legislation
demanded , not only by out Interest ,
but by our honor. AVe cannot with
propriety abandon the course upon
which ho have so wisely embarked.
When the acceptance of the Platt
amendment was required from Cuba
by the action of congress of the United
States , this government thereby defi-
aitely committed Itself to the policy
ot treating Cuba as occupying a
unique position as regards this coun
try. It was provided that when the
island become a free and independent
republic she should stand In such
close relations with us as In certain
respects to como within our system
of International policy ; and it ncces-
arlly follows that she must also to a
certain degree became Included within
the lines of our economical policy.
Situated as Cuba is , it would not bo
possible for this country to permit the
trateglc abuse of the plan by any for-
Ign military power It is for this
reason that certain limitations have
been imposed upon her financial pol
icy and tht' naval stations have been
conceded by her to the United States.
The negotiations as to the details ot
these naval stations are on the eve
/completion. . They are so situated
ar to prevent any Idea that there Is
the Intention over to use thorn against
Cuba , or otherwise than for the pro
tection of Cuba from the assaults of
foreign foes , and for the better safe
guarding of American Interests In the
waters south of us.
These interests have been largely
Increased by the consequences of the
war with Spain , and will be still further -
ther Increased by the building of the
Isthmian canal. They are both mill-
J tary and economic. The granting to
P us by Cuba of the naval stations above
1 alluded to Is of the most Importance
I from a military standpoint and Is
proof of the good faith with which
Cuba Is treating us. Cuba has made
i treat progress since her-Independence
* was established. She has advanced
teadlly in every way. She already
lands high among her sister repub-
' ' lies of the new world. She is loyally
' . observing her obligations to us , and
' * ho Is entitled to like treatment by us.
The treaty submitted to you for ap
L L * proval secures to the United States
economic advantages as great as
' those given to Cuba. Not an Ameri
can Interest is sacrificed by the treaty.
a large Cuban market Is assured teL
L our producers. It la a large market
/ -which lies at our doors , which Is large ,
1 * r ; capable of great expansion , and which
' * ' IB particularly Important to the do-
I ' Telopment of our export trade It
j - -would be , Indeed , shortsighted for us
' to refuse to take advantage of such
' opportunity and to force Cuba Into
} making arrangements with other coun
tries to our disadvantage.
This reciprocity treaty stands bv it-
'self. It Is demanded on considerations
of broad national policy as well as by
our economic Interest. It will do harm
to no Industry. It will benefit many
Industries. It Is In the interest of
our people as a whole , both because
of Its Importance from the broad
standpoint of International policy and
because economically It intimately
concerns us to develop and secure the
rich Cuban market for our farmers ,
artisans , merchants and manufactur
ers. Finally , It is desirable as a guar
anty of the good faith of our nation
towards her younger sister republic
V. to the Bouth. whose welfare must ever
be closely bound with our Wo gave
f her liberty. Wo are knit to her by
the memories of the blood and the
courage of our soldiers who fought
for her In war ; by the memories of
tbo wisdom nnd Integrity of our ad
ministrators who saved her In peace
and who started her so well on the
difficult path of self-povernment. We
must help her onward and upward :
and In helping her we shall help our
The foregoing considerations caused
the negotiation of a treaty with Cuba
and its ratification by the ? cnate.
They now. with equal force support
tht 'legislation by the congress which
by the terms of the treaty , Is neces-
k nry to render It operative. A failure
to enact such legislation would como
. perilously near a repudiation of the
plfldped faith of the nation.
I transmit hodewlth the treaty as
, amended by the senate and ratified by
t the Cuban government.

The llguro was found yesterday morn

the individual whom It was intended j
to represent. The perpetrators are
unknown but the deed was evidently
done by a few people to show tholr
illsplcasuro of Mr. Staloy'a action In
the recent election. Mr. Staloy has
had the ofllco of county clurk for four
years , being elected four years ago
