WASHINGTON, March 14. Estes O.
Rathbone, formerly director of posts at
Havana, who was convicted of misuse of
funds, but psrdoned under the general sra
nesty proclaimed by President Palma when
he assumed office, baa made public a state
ment of his case. This ststement was ad
dressed to Senator Piatt (Conn.).
Mr. Rathbone haa been earnestly urging
that action be taken upon his case, and
now that rongreas has adjourned, he has
decided to make public his statement. In
It ha aaya:
I anted as a cltlxen of the Vnlted States
tinder the direction of the rostofflce de
partment at Washington In pursuance of
a treaty which was and Is part of the
law of the United States, ami In the course
of the performance of my official duties I
waa charged with high crimes and mis
demeanors and waa tried in that foreign
country, by a tribunal appointed by and
acting under the authority and direction
of the military governor of Cuba.
I contend that It was the duty of the
government of the United Statea to se
cure for me a fair and Impartial trlnl
under usual and regular rules of Judicial
procedure, for the official acta performed
under its appointment, direction and au
thority. I was subjected to trial by arbitrary and
unusual mode of trial contrary alike to
original laws of Cuba and the fundamental
principles of justice.
The proceeding which led to my con
viction waa not a Judicial proceeding, but
a special proceeding directed by the mil
itary governor of Cuba, who Issued orders,
Instructions and communications to the
courts from time to time according to the
exigences of the case.
I did not have a fair and Impartial trial.
By letters ef Instruction communicated
to the trial court, I authorised the use as
evidence In the case of exparte depositions
taken In the United Statea on behalf of
Illegal evidence u used against me,
notably hearsay and exparte affidavits.
Witnesses were not summoned in m v be
half. In violation of article vl, amendments
to the constitution.
The military governor had full authority
to appoint and remove membera of the Ju
diciary at will.
Items of expenditure In my accounts
which he held to be Improper he admitted
as proper items In the accounts of military
and other officials, Including his own.
I waa convicted of conspiracy upon the
uncorroborated testimony of an alleged co
conspirator. W. H. Reeves, who was a
defendant on trial upon the same charge.

A mother living In Charleston, Mass., the

"Every fell and winter I have laid in a
stock of cough remedies, croup mixtures
aad throat medicines for my children, for
somehow or other they never seem to be
free from colds, coughs or sere throat.
This fall I made a change in the usual
program. I had myself been cured of sn ob
stlnate catarrh, from which I had suffered
for years, by Stuart's Catarrh Tablets, and
ss they were pleassnt to take, I determined
to try them with my children. Our family
physician told me be knew them to be per
fectly safe and nothing better could he
used for catarrh, coughs and colds.
So I gave tbem to the children and have
continued to do so ever since, whenever
there is the least sign of croup or sore
throat, and I no longer dread the approach
of cold weather as I ones did.
Stuart'a Catarrh Tableta not only cured
me of chronlo naaal and throat catarrh, but
they have saved me many an anxioua night
with my little ones. Ths children like the
taate of them and It la really wonderful
how qulrkly they will break up a eroupy
cold or an obstinate, deep-seated cough."
People who have used sprays, lobalera,

Returning to the validity to the title,
